  1. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Jeezus wept. Does this guy take his inspiration from the Danny Devito character in LA Confidential? Remember folks, what you heard is hush hush and on the QT. I was at school with Paul and he never mentioned his middle name was Anthony. Must be a conspiracy.

    Emergency loan. Is there a problem with Ferguson? (Just read the article - Kerr is injured). https://twitter.com/AirdrieoniansFC/status/921399292618792961

    Does anyone know where I can lay my hands on an age 14 - 15 home top? Does the shop currently have stock?

    Or 2.4K. Here to help.

    Ah right. Yeah, I agree. I remember, as part of a group, being on the receiving end of similar bullying chat from a couple of our previous office bearers many years ago. It wasn't fun, especially when you have what are only good intentions called into doubt. It really helped me to quickly form a fairly cynical, albeit possibly unfair, opinion about the type of people who typically get involved in running wee Scottish clubs.

    Not sure who specifically you're referring to here, the fans/customers or a potential buyer. If the former, then the normal rules of commerce don't really apply where football is concerned because of the unique relationship each team has with its supporters. As far as I'm concerned Airdrie is the only team I'm at all interested in following and that gives the owner of the club greater leverage over me than other lines business which aren't the only show in town. If the latter, then I wouldn't argue that the buyer should pay any more than they think the club is worth. If the initial price is too high then I wouldn't expect them to buy until it reaches a level they are willing to pay. If that means they have to be willing to walk away if the price doesn't eventually meet their valuation, then I have no issue with that. It's their money. I don't propose Airdrie fans be asked to passively accepting anything. I propose that they be asked to actively support a workable plan behind which other fans could rally, and for the ones who have the wherewithal, to actively work to establish and communicate that plan.

    I agree. This isn't just a case of kicking the can down the road and hoping the situation sorts itself out. It's preparing for change and ensuring, when the change comes, that it has the best chance of succeeding. All I would add is, if Airdrie are going to stand a realistic chance of surving and, eventually, thriving then that alternative should ideally become something more concrete than a hypothetical idea in the next 2 to 3 months - from a short term perspective of heading off further disillusionment amongst the support, and to enable club to prepare for 2018/19 in the medium term. Still no idea what that alternative could realistically be though.

    It's all there. You just have to click the links in the youtube side bar. This should help. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=otl+podcast+ep+3

    Meant to post this one rather than the previous link.

    You're a troll aren't you?
  12. Airdrie v Queen's Park

    Good deflection with the outrage in your later post but I'd like to bring you back to this one all the same. Having seen the video, do you still think that you matched Airdrie in the 1st half, or are you willing to give credit to your keeper for a strong performance and saving you from being 2 - 3 more goals down at the break?
  13. Airdrie v Queen's Park

    I thought Furtado's touch was poor in the first half and he wasn't winning high balls but he was the exact opposite in the 2nd half. Stewart was excellent throughout - got into good positions, his running with the ball was excellent and he took both his chances like a boss. The only real frustrations were the wasteful mistakes which cost a couple of unecessary goals when QP never looked likely to score, and the tendency to continually pass around the back without finding an opening to move the ball forward and eventually losing it with a hopeful punt up the park.
