  1. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    The Ashes.
  2. Dunfermline vs Dumbarton 25/11/17

    One of the guys I'm at Uni with was talking to Nadé earlier this week. He was saying that he hasn't been 100% since near enough the start of the season, although he reckons he is getting closer now. Says a lot about him that he played through it for so long.

    Aye reporters are a dodgy bunch - best avoided imo.
  4. Sons' sorrow

    Think so, aye. Well a guy scored against Colville Park in the 1st round who shared his name, and ran like he was holding a shinty stick, so I'd assume it was the same one.
  5. The Sons vs The Black and Whites

    I thought the referee had a poor game at the time, but that booking for Morrison is absolutely ridiculous. He might think the Elgin player gets the ball, which would be more excusable, but to classify that as a dive is absolutely mental. Sometimes I seriously wonder what officials see.

    Ironically that is the Scott Brown of draws.

    All you have to do is send them a wee email requesting a player and they'll add it online. I did it last night, and they got straight to it. I'd imagine there might be a strong demand for a Garry Fleming one..
  8. Sons' sorrow

    So I had a wee agreement with a few friends (and my brother) that I'd get an 'I was there when Carsy scored' T-shirt if he ever did - and here we are: http://www.cultzeros.co.uk/product/23052/stuart-carswell-dumbarton/
  9. Stranraer FC 2017-18

    Purely as an outsider here, that seems like a really weird one. He was probably the best player on the park in the Betfred Cup tie between our sides a month or so back, and looked like the sort of player we could with - never mind a struggling League 1 side! Not to jump on the 'lets slag Faz' bandwagon or anything, but I'd say we've been considerably better since he left and Durrant came in.
  10. The Sons vs The Black and Whites

    He should've had a second late on too, but remembered that he was Stuart Carswell and ended up stuck in two minds between shooting and trying to turn the guy, and lost the ball.
  11. Sons' sorrow

    Good grief. I forgot he was the Chief Exec, I was thinking he was still just the stadium manager, or whatever it was he did last season.
  12. Sons' sorrow

    Aye, we got that as well. Naw, I thought I'd just buy a 50/50 and then go for a walk into Morrisons...They also ID'd my brother, who is at school and therefore doesn't have a student ID, but not me...I'm 4 year older than him. In the end I flashed my ID and said it was his, and both of us were allowed in. Stewards are weird.

    Assuming that is the case, those 'fans' who complained need to have a serious think about whether or not football is for them. I found the drum a wee bit annoying last week, but fair play to the guys with it. They got right behind the team, and it did create a bit of atmosphere. They are our future, and we need more folk their age. If that comes at the expense of a few grouchy older guys then so be it. St Mirren can be cringey at times, but they do have a strong young support - we should try and build up something similar of our own. Whether it was Frank or someone higher up from the club who made the decision, they need to reevaluate it. If I complained about fans' signing because it was too loud would I have them silenced? I'd love to be able to clamp the folk who jump on the backs of players after every single thing that isn't perfect. #TeamDrum
  14. The Sons vs The Black and Whites

    Third consecutive win. Third consecutive clean sheet. A goal from Carsy. Nice. It might have been scrappy and unconvincing, second half especially, but a win is all that matters at the end of the day. All the best to Elgin. They were far, far better than Raith last week, and are very welcome to Greg Morrison when his loan with us is up in January.
  15. The Sons vs The Black and Whites

    Yes. 161 appearances into his career. He's came close a couple of times over the last few weeks too. I'm sat here like a proud Da. He is the absolute man.
  16. Hello friends. Stuart Carswell has just scored a (deflected) free-kick. I just thought you lot might want to know. And no, I don't have a clue why he was taking a free-kick.
  17. Sons' sorrow

    So you can drum at Challenge Cup games, but not at Scottish Cup ties? I've nae idea who made that decision, but it's seriously poor.
  18. Sons' sorrow

    Cheers. Aye my plan was to have comments from on here in the intro, but unfortunately Div's book burning meant that was impossible.
  19. Sons' sorrow

    There are few players I enjoyed watching more than Jim Lister during his season with us. The fact that it was a wonderful season, and he was the most unlikely of talismen made it all the best. Anyway, when I saw your post it convinced me to write a wee tribute - so here we are: http://talesfromtherock.weebly.com/home/jim-lister-the-unlikely-hero
  20. The Sons vs The Black and Whites

    That is encouraging. Everyone knows I'm not Grant Gal's biggest fan, but he's versatile and hardworking - and that's something that won't go amiss in a team like us. I'm excited to see Handling play again too, he could be a massive player for us in the second part of the season. I wonder if letting them go out on a month long emergency loan when they are nearing fitness might be a good idea. I remember Jamie Langfield joining Forfar for a few games after his serious brain trouble, and with no reserve/U20s league it would be a better way to ease them into action than taking a risk in a vital Championship game. Three or four games at Stranraer (Faz and Chris Aitken), Albion Rovers (where we like to send players) or Stirling Albion (Frazer Wright) for example could do them a world of good. If Elgin fancy rolling over tomorrow afternoon, then I'm sure we could come to some sort of deal too
  21. Super Ayr vs Lewis Vaughan

    Somebody Periscope this plz xxx
  22. Sons' sorrow

    I'm going to be honest, 282 mile trip to play an English based Welsh team at what looks like a glorified sports centre isn't really what I had hoped for.
  23. Sons' sorrow

    I believe it's about 17/18 of February - so you should be alright!
