  1. I too don't see why we would need to be pushing the game any more than we are. It's against the Scottish champions at Parkhead, surely anyone with a remote interest in the club will be going regardless of how well it's advertised.
  2. Brechin v Livi

    Would have been very soft if it was given in my opinion. Thought it was a desperate claim at the time.
  3. Brechin v Livi

    I've seen the the footage of the penalty incident from another angle and it was most definitely a penalty. It was clumsy from McLennan.
  4. That was probably the hardest defeat to take outwith the two Dumbarton games. When you are leading after an hour and playing against 10 men for a good chunk of the second half, you expect to get something from the game. Unfortunately sloppy defending and individual mistakes are continuing to cost us. We created enough chances yesterday but still think we are operating a little too defensively. I think Dods needs to have a little more faith in his side to take the game to the opposition, we won't earn any plaudits by running teams close every week. As mentioned above, I'm surprised at the substitution of Sinclair and the fact we didn't use a third sub. I thought McLennan's thunderbolt against Pars last week was going to be our goal of the season but I think Sinclairs yesterday just shades it. That was absolutely sublime technique and a superb assist from Connor.
  5. In an ideal world this would entice a couple hundred extra along but we've done similar in the past (such as fitba for a fiver) and it didn't have a noticeable effect on the crowd. I think those that want to go to the game will go - I don't think pricing is a problem at the Glebe.
  6. So near and yet so far for us again. After a couple of heavy defeats, it's back to the familiar feeling of deflation after coming away with nothing when the very least we deserved was a share of the spoils. Thought Isaac was absolutely superb for us today, where was this player earlier in the season? He's in such a rich vein of form at the moment and every time he's on the ball he looks dangerous - he's clearly brimming with confidence. Euan Smith had an excellent game in midfield also. If we are to get our first win in this league we need to be taking the chances that come along and today we missed too many guilt edged opportunities. Aside from the goal in the first half, Isaac and Crighton produced good saves from Samson. In the second half Orsi, Isaac and Spark all missed clear cut chances before Jacko hit the post in stoppage time. It shows that perhaps we should have a little more faith in our attacking qualities and set up less defensively - we have nothing to lose. Any time we've had a go in this league, we've been more than capable of carving open defences. We go again next week, c'mon the City!
  7. I assumed I had missed something for the penalty, turns out there was nothing to miss! One of the worst decisions I've seen in a long time.
  8. What a bizarre comment. The Christmas night out has probably been organised for months, do you want them to cancel it and go and sulk at home over the performance? The players will have been as disappointed as anyone at the result yesterday - I'm sure they'd have rather gone for their break away on the back of a win.
  9. I'm immensely proud also. I feared the worst after the first half as United were cutting us open with ease (particularly King, Fraser and Stanton) and only some last ditch blocks stopped us from being more than one behind. Second half, wow. Players put in a tremendous shift and pretty much dominated the entire second half. Isaac has undoubtedly his best game for City and looked more like the player we had on loan a couple of years ago. He held the ball up, he was strong, he was powerful and direct. Finn Graham was excellent again and McLennan caused a lot of problems when he came on.
  10. Brechin City -vs- Dumbarton

    Regardless of who is out, please God just let us win.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
