  1. Confirmed January Transfers

    Craig Storie joins Brechin City following his release from Aberdeen last month.
  2. Confirmed January Transfers

    Getting closer to the Rock. Handy for leading us to the League 1 title next season.

    Total Teamwear in Port Dundas sell Sons tops. For a retro one you'll struggle though, Toffs did do one a few years ago, but I don't think they sell it anymore unfortunately.

    I think he's meant to be a targetman - which is more than I saw with Morrison. He's a big unit, and I can imagine he quite easily bullies U20s centre-backs, however when it comes to playing against guys like Ricki Lamie and Tam O'Ware he's just not able to deal with how physical it is. In saying that we could maybe do with getting to the ball to his feet a bit more, as he looked more dangerous running with it at Livi than he did with his back to goal. Both players act as a perfect example of why the U20s league doesn't work as well as a reserve league though.

    Aye, I'd agree with all of that. Wilson was really hesitant at first, but he seemed to settle a bit more as the game went on. I did expect him to be a wee bit better on the ball than he was though, but I'll out that down to inexperience. Mango's uncompromising in the air, so I suppose he was always going to be a bit different. Dick is to Boomer what Davie Smith is to Wardrop. He's alright, but we're definitely not as good with him in the team as we are with the first choice. His pace gets him out of a few issues, and he's alright in the air, but he offers next to nothing going forward. I love Beany, but I'd agree. It'll obviously take him a bit of time to get up to sharpness, but last night (for the most part) he was just half a second slow. Nisbet is pretty much what I expected. Very meh. If we can keep the front four of Burt (who, final ball aside, actually looked confident running at people, and has an eye for a pass), Froxy (), Stirling (tremendous last night, even if he was struggling a wee bit for fitness by the end) and Stewart (beginning to look like our most important player given the difference when he's not on the park) along with Walsh when he's back, fit, then I think we should be quite nice to watch going forward. Given I'm resigned to ninth now, playing some entertaining stuff would be a nice wee boost. I did wonder if that might've been it. Although two games in a short space of time (including one on Astro) probably doesn't suit him. He was colossal at the weekend though. The difference when Stewart came on against TNS (certainly on the tele) and when he went off last night was incredible.

    Anyone know what the matter was with Mango last night? Aidan Wilson did ok after a really shaky start, but I'd prefer to have us at full strength for this weekend.

    Here’s a thing I don’t get. We looked pretty decent with the starting front four on, mainly because we kept the ball on the ground and knocked it about. As soon as the subs were made we started going direct, and that began to limit the input of guys like Stirling and Handling, whilst playing right into Morton’s hands. Really disappointing. On the bright side I thought Kyle Hutton had his best game for a few months. Sprayed the ball about nicely, and worked hard defensively. More of that please, as he’s actually really decent to watch when he’s at the races.

    Good luck to anyway planning on getting home this evening by the way. The traffic is a nightmare outside the stadium - and the mini traffic lights haven't had their phasing changed. So about two cars are getting though in each change.

    That's probably the best I've seen us play this year, but our inability to score is absolute murder. The difference when Mark Stewart came off was incredible.

    Honestly, I'd do anything to see us defend corners.
  11. Ton v sons

    I'm cursed. Good half that though. Quite enjoying the Burt/Froxy/Stewart/Stirling link up. Could do with getting a few more crosses in mind you.
  12. Ton v sons

    I like the look of that front four a lot. I might even see us score.

    Danny Handling in SPFL Team of the Week - pleased for him. A few more performances like that and he could be worth his weight in gold.
