  1. Ton v sons

    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.
  4. Ton v sons

    Honestly, I'd do anything to see us defend corners.
  5. 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.

    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.
  8. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    Absolutely cannot wait to see the St JohnSons relationship irl.
  9. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    16:15 on the Saturday at McDiarmid. Not bad.
  10. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    That sounds acceptable. I'd prefer three, but lunchtime is preferable to an evening kick off imo.
  11. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    Fully expecting Rugby Park, 16:05 kick off on a Sunday. Or even worse, Almondvale 19:35 Friday night kick off. Announce McDiarmid 15:00 on a Saturday plz SPFL.
  12. Sons' sorrow

    He is, aye. Assuming Wardrop isn't fit, I take it I'm not the only one who wouldn't mind seeing us going with Dowie and RB again? Granted he's not going to cross the halfway line, but he looked solid at the weekend - and given what Frank Ross did to us last time having a disciplined guy like him there would be a decent idea. Assuming Dill's out I can see us going with something like this tonight: Scott Gallacher Andy Dowie Aidan Wilson Craig Barr Liam Dick Stuart Carswell Kyle Hutton Andy Stirling Danny Handling Dimitris Froxylias Kevin Nisbet I'd be keen to start Liam Burt, but given the options we have I can't see Stevie handing two wingers debuts. Could be wrong mind you - in which case I'd imagine Froxy would be in the middle, and Handling would drop out.

    Iredale injured?
  14. Sons' sorrow

    That has the potential to be very, very tasty. Be a bit harsh on Handling mind you, but I'm not sure how you can fit him and Froxy in the same team - and I'm not sure what his fitness will be like having played 80 minutes on Astro. Stirling and Burt running at the byline
  15. TNS v Dumbarton

    After splashing out £3 on a Cyprus flag I'd be seething if he missed it
  16. Sons' sorrow

    There's a decent deal on Cypriot flags on eBay at the minute. I will be able to comment on the quality within three to five days: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201628585940

    OKI is now officially a celebrity.
  18. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    Hopefully they play it at McDiarmid. Given the strength of the St JohnSons relationship I'd expect a sellout, with Kyle just shouting AWWOOOOOGGGAAA every few minutes. Cannot wait for this.
  19. ICTFC v Crusaders

    Actually that would be pretty suitable given the crowd that's likely to be in. We also have a decent record in big games there...
  20. TNS v Dumbarton

    I am extremely lazy for not looking back in the thread. You also have an even better memory than me for things you've posted on here
  21. TNS v Dumbarton

    *cough* @Skyline Drifter *cough*
  22. TNS v Dumbarton

    Suits me. McDiarmid is one of the few grounds I've got left to tick off.
  23. TNS v Dumbarton

    That's smashing. I'll need to pick up a Sun - I've got a Record and we don't get so much as a mention (as far as I can see). West Brom against Southampton gets a full page though...
  24. Ton v sons

    'Tis at the Rock, is it not? That title should therefore read Dimitris Froxylias and his Challenge Cup finalist friends -vs- Greenock Morton.
  25. TNS v Dumbarton

    I'm still trying to work out how to get it on here, as none of my usual methods are working, but any wanting a Gif of Froxy's goal can download it here. https://drive.google.com/open?id=17XtX7QLEktL57BvBC63ig5qTMlY0fG4U
