  1. Brechin City -vs- Dumbarton

    Regardless of who is out, please God just let us win.
  2. Brechin City -vs- Dumbarton

    The Scottish Cup is always huge for the club, that isn't news. We haven't had a money spinner in ages, not helped by our horrific cup record of late. Fingers crossed we can get the better of Buckie this time round and get a decent draw.
  3. Livi v Brechin

    At the time it didn't look good for McLennan. I thought he started to lay into Gallagher but the highlights show he manages to stop himself. A yellow for both the correct call in my opinion. We've got to remember that McLennan has only newly turned 18 so he's still got a lot to learn. It's a difficult league and he won't be getting as much service as he would like.
  4. Livi v Brechin

    As much as Smith has been a superb goalkeeper for us, he needs a kick up the backside. He's costing us more points than he's saving at the moment with really basic errors, how that opening goal even ended up in the net is beyond me.
  5. Gutted to come away with nothing again when I think we were worthy of a point. Lady Luck just isn't shining on us at the moment. Must say I was surprised to see Orsi and in particular Graham dropped, but in hindsight I think it benefitted us to freshen the team up. Watt and Isaac did well enough. Isaac on another day could've had a hat trick - as mentioned earlier he is getting into the right positions, just needs to work on his finishing. That said he couldn't have done much more with a couple of his efforts which produced excellent saves from Martin. We are earning plenty of plaudits from opposition fans for the way we are performing, unfortunately it doesn't make the league table any prettier to look at. Have to say I was expecting us to get our first win out of the last two games at home so to come out of it with two defeats and no goals is disappointing. We're not far away though, it'll come.
  6. Saw a group of 20 or so Morton guys approaching Hudsons, was like a scene out of the Hills have Eyes. One even managed to gob down the front of his jumper. Good on Buzz launching the smoke bomb over the hedge as the stewards stood and watched. I often see this man at the Glebe with the Forfar jacket on, obviously doesn't fancy travelling to games and goes to see a game locally instead. Fair play to the guy.
  7. St Mirren V Brechin

    Unlucky yet again. Not been an awful lot between the teams in most our games this season and today was another. How we still remain on only two points is beyond me. Please can we get our first win in the home double header coming up. We deserve it. Cmon City. Keep the faith.
  8. Spot on. It's the same folk every week that moan and they've not got a brain cell between them so best ignored. Every other supporter knows the script, as you say other than the Inverness game we've been competitive and truth be told should probably have a couple of wins on the board already.
  9. How many Pars fans would you expect to travel up, around 1000 or is that optimistic?
  10. Still gutted after that yesterday. That was the perfect opportunity to get off the mark against our fellow part timers. As has been said by both sets of fans, if we kept 11 men on the park we probably would have held on for the win. The introduction of Nadé did change things though.
  11. Sending off changed the game. Looked fine up until that point. It was a typical full blooded challenge from Lynas and I have to say I was fearing the worst when the ref ran over.
  12. £15 for the Glebe. Don't want to get into a big price debate but £20 is scandalous for Dumbarton it really is. Your crowds must be dwindling charging that, surely?
  13. I think Graeme Smith will be bitterly disappointed with that Falkirk goal - definitely an error on his part. Likewise Isaac should have buried his chance in stoppage time. Could have easily been 3 points but over the course of the 90 minutes I think a draw was just about fair. Hugely encouraged by some of the performances so far - that's 3 matches now where we've more than matched our opposition and could have easily won a couple of them. With the budget much the same last season our expectation was to simply be competitive in this league and see where it takes us - we are doing exactly that. Big game next week which even at this early stage could have a huge bearing on the season ahead.
  14. Gutted to lose that one. As most have said we were definitely worthy of a point. Everyone played their part but for me Crighton, Lynas, Graham and Orsi were excellent. Hopefully we continue with 4 at the back. Gives us much more balance.
  15. Excellent post and the for the most part summarises my thoughts on the game. We were far too pedestrian. There was just no urgency going forward, every time we were on the ball we were taking far too long to pick a pass. Kalvin Orsi probably the only exception to this when he came on - tried to make things happen with his direct style of play. Not going to start picking out individuals but there are number of players who are simply not performing to the standards they are capable of or just don't look good enough. We know we are going to be outclassed and outmuscled at times in the Championship, that is understandable. However losing to teams 2 or 3 leagues below us in the cups is worrying. With all due respect to Buckie who are a decent outfit, this tie gave us a good opportunity to get a win under our belts and continue the momentum from the second half against Livi. Can only hope the players can lift themselves for a very tough game at Tannadice on Saturday.
