  1. Last night showed what a decent squad we have, 4 regular first team players not even in the match day squad, 2 sitting on the bench and we still looked every bit as strong. The missing link is another CB but I believe we are looking at a lad from Aberdeen on loan, that may be an urgent signing before this game if Lithgow injury is bad. If Jacobs is still out I think it's a midfield of Pittman, Thomson and Byrne with Mullin and Longridge either side. Mullen and Carrick up top and Gallagher back in alongside Halkett and Lithgow (if fit) if he's not fit it'll likely be Longridge at CB with Cadden coming in. Be a tough game and our record as been highlighted isn't great at home to st mirren, if we remain unbeaten by Saturday night I'll be quite happy.
  2. Very comfortable, hard to get carried away though, clearly both teams rested players and we just adapted better. First 20 minutes was all Morton without really hurting us but as has been said after we scored we didn't really look like losing. Nice to see how much depth we've got in the squad, Gallagher, Byrne, Robinson, Jacobs all not in the 18 and we still had a decent bench with Mullen, Carrick, Peters, Mackin and Brown all on the bench. longridge for being a left back was superb as a CB tonight, Toderov done a great job up front and at CB when he was out there and a great debut by Joe Thomson who plays with so much maturity for a 20 year old. Wasn't overly bothered about tonight but a good win and keeps up our unbeaten run.
  3. Think he's trying far too hard with his attempt at fishing tbh and no one has caught on yet.
  4. Nope not really, we played very poor and didn't deserve to be 2-0 up, struggled to play anywhere near as well as we'd been playing. Knew if we'd played the same way second half we'd be lucky to win.
  5. That's a pity was looking forward to standing in the shed end, completely understandable though. We don't have the biggest traveling support at the best of times and I can't see us bringing that many tonight for this competition. To the game I recon Gary Maley will start in goals, he did so last season so don't see why tonight will be any different. Can also see Toderov starting alongside Robinson up front, if Jacobs is fit he will play, and I fully expect a debut for Thomson in beside him, Cadden also to get game time. Rest a few for this tonight and give the guys that haven't played as much some much needed game time, I'm sure Morton will be thinking the same.
  6. So are away fans now in the half terrace half seated stand now ? Or still in the corner of stand opposite ? Sure I read somewhere that Morton had moved the away fans for this season.
  7. Completely agree with you, I'll be heading along to it but only out of loyalty and something to do. The competition is a complete farce and should be treated as such.
  8. Week 1 :- QoS Week 2 :- Ayr Utd Week 3 :- Dundee Utd
  9. Bit of a reality check for us today, firstly I want to congratulate Brechin on a decent performance, caused us more problems today than they did in all 4 games last season and were worthy of a point. Us on the other hand we looked lethargic, even at 2-0 I didn't feel we played that well. We really missed Keaghan Jacobs in the middle of the park to calm things down, we more often than not tried to play diagonal balls across the pitch rather than play through the middle which is what we've been doing well up until today. Its another point but really at 2-0 we have to be more professional, that's 2 points and imo 4 points less than what we should have. Long way to go but if we are to have a successful season we have to be taking our chances and seeing games out. Maybe the kick up the backside we needed after a good start to the season. Btw Brechin need to update there admission info, website states £13 for adults, Livi tweeted £13 and we got there and it's £15.
  10. By the sounds of things this is a great bit of business by Hoppy and the club. Will really push our 3 midfielders hard now which is only a good thing. We really are building an excellent squad, add another defender and if possible another striker and we will be pushing for a top half finish.
  11. Free shot for us, no matter who we drew we were going to be massive underdogs. We hadn't budgeted for getting out the group so the 65k prize money plus whatever we've got from last nights gate and this gate will probably get us 100k plus which is massive for us. You just never know, it's a one of cup tie, but obviously Hibs should be winning the tie, I just hope we give a good account of ourselves, that's what I'm hoping for the most.
  12. Was the 2004 cup final the last time we met Hibs in this competition ?
  13. Happy with that, decent enough pay day, and you just never know. Over confidence from Hibs, it's a free game for us.
  14. Don't care who we get, just pleased to be in the draw.
  15. Some highlights here, Houston thought our winner was handball, what world is he in ? What a finish by Raffa. Both our goals coming from cross balls which we looked dangerous from all night.
