  1. If we win this it'll be the first time since January 2014 that we've done that. Livi look as good as they have done in recent years though; they aren't in chaos on the park, and everything seems settled behind the scenes, so I'd bite your hand off for a point right now. Assuming that Stevie's going to persevere with Dowie at CB, I'd like to see us go with something like this: Scott Gallacher Sam Wardrop Andy Dowie Dougie Hill Chris McLaughlin David Wilson Craig Barr Dimitris Froxylias Mark Stewart Tom Walsh Christian Nadé Subs: Not Kyle Hutton, Not Kyle Hutton, Not Kyle Hutton, Not Kyle Hutton, Not Kyle Hutton, Not Kyle Hutton, Jamie Ewings Incredibly, given where we were at the start of the season, we actually look not too bad going forward these days, and with Froxy have a player capable of a bit of magic. Unfortunately Dowie and Hill don't look anywhere near as good as Mango and Hill, and we'll no doubt have another 90 minutes of watching Kyle Hutton mark space, point, and try in desperation to somehow shovel the ball onto his right foot.

    That would certainly be one way to achieve plenty of publicity in the Glasgow press. I'm sure Your Radio and Turnberry Homes would welcome that!

    Thought that myself. I would 100% go for him if he'd fancy it, especially given how uninspiring most of the other out of work names are. I don't think County would suit Stevie geographically, nor do I think they'd be interested in him, however with this and the Falkirk job now up for grabs I am a little bit anxious we might lose him. I can see the appeal in both vacancies and, I dare say, if I was him I think I'd certainly express an interest in both.

    Couple of good things from the club on the OS. First the pricing from the Stranraer game, which is seriously attractive. Hopefully we can get a few extra folk along for some Friday night entertainment. Secondly the wee fixtures poster to fire up at work/on Facebook/Twitter etc, it might not add anyone extra to the attendance, but the more material out there, the more chance we have of attracting a few extra folk along.

    He's the assistant at Asker FK (IIRC) in Norway - or at least he was in the last interview I read with him.

    That's a shame. I'll miss his seething baldy dome. Anyway, Hartley would be an excellent appointment imo. Hopefully you steer clear of him and appoint Mark McGhee for the bantz.

    In case anyone's interested, today marks a year since Grant Gallagher last played a competitive game for us. It was a 3-2 defeat to Gary Locke's Raith Rovers, with us 3 down at half-time iirc. Stevo and Berba pulled goals back late on, but there was no Steven Saunders ready to save the day. On OKI's point, this team is better than the team from a year ago today, but still quite a way behind the team that finished last season.

    Poor management?

    If I can get to Paisley for full-time can I just take Aldo, Stirling and Kane home? Clearly Queens are ruining them.
  10. Dumbarton v I.C.T 23/9/17

    I think that's the right call from the referee for Warren's second booking. Dowie takes the ball and, although there probably is contact with Warren, his reaction is clearly to try and win a penalty. Desperation from him as one of the few decent players left in that side - poor guy. Froxy's goal is a far better finish than I thought it was at the time. Horrific defending, but a classy finish nonetheless. Pleased to see Stewart getting the assist too. Froxy's free-kick is a belter , but OFW has to either put that over the bar, or get it further away from goal for me. Doesn't excuse the lack of ICT players following it in, but I reckon he'll be annoyed he didn't deal with it better. If Bell can work on his finishing he'll get a decent number of goals based on his showing yesterday. Out of the all the new guys though, he was the only one who remotely impressed me. Donaldson is a disaster, Chalmers is total chaos, Oakley looked physical, but pretty poor at the football side of things and Trafford looked ungainly and uncomfortable. Gutted I didn't get to see big 'Susan', especially after being promised him pre-match on here too. Bell's goal is the result of some truly incredible defending from us. A lazy, lazy ball from Hutton, Dowie committing himself too early and big Dill being turned seriously easily in the box.

    Aye. I thought the exact same as BBPF when I first heard it, and then thought the exact same as The Moonster a few minutes later.

    That second half performance today was really enjoyable. The first half was as drab and miserable as things get, but fair play to Stevie and the players , they (along with some suspect refereeing calls) managed to really get a decent atmosphere going in the home end.

    I'm not 100% sure to be honest. OFW was clattered, but I think it was by Brad McKay (not that, that would've stopped the referee giving a free-kick). At the time I didn't think he'd given a foul, but I wasn't paying enough attention to be honest. Aye, that referee looked absolutely miles out his depth though. He made the game difficult for himself, and seemed to provoke players into reacting. Polworth was very, very lucky not to get at least a booking for his shove on Mango, and it took him a long, long time to realise that Warren had already been booked.

    You can't be offside from a goal kick, can you? So the linesman flagged for it, the ref gave it, they then realised they'd made a total mess and I think just decided a drop ball would be the best option. I could be totally wrong though.
