  1. Wow, seriously? What brought this on or can I guess?

  3. It's not his hair you need to worry about him producing, but poor displays on the park. You've obviously had him before, so know what to expect. I just hope, for your sake, that he can perform better for you than he did for us. He was probably top of a long list of poor signings under Stuart McLaren. I'm not sure if he just played under two manager here that played a system that didn't suit him or if he was just a poor player, but his goals at Berwick keep you living in hope that he is a good player, but performances proved otherwise. He was our joint top goalscorer last season, however he only scored something like 5 goals in the league, and out of his 12 goals, a bundle of them were also penalties.
  4. If only I could predict the lottery as well......
  5. I think any team at this level would have struggled to replace the big fella, even at the age of what, 36(???) he was still some player. Certainly (one of) the best Defenders in the league last season
  6. Going on early season form (Betfred Cup included) I think we'll go into this game as big favourites, and quite rightly so. By all accounts we were poor on Tuesday night, but you can put that down to a one off. Rightly or wrongly, there is a big reliance on Callumn Morrison & Peter Macdonald to make things happen up front, and without them, along with other changes, maybe we aren't as fluid as we would be with them in the team. Edinburgh impressed me last season, they were organised and hard to beat, but they have lost a couple of big players and I'm not sure they have recruited as well. Moses & Verlaque will return and try and prove that Dave Mackay was wrong to discard them so quickly, but I honestly think that Mackay was right in his judgement and I doubt either of them will cause us too much bother. The whole Craig Thomson thing will cause an uneasy feeling inside Forthbank for us fathers in the crowd with young children, no doubt it won't be an enjoyable 90 minutes in regards to the verbal abuse, but I keep my fingers crossed it will be in terms of bagging the 3 points.
  7. Week 1: QoS Week 2: Celtic Week 3: I'm going for it, STIRLING ALBION
  8. Don't know if there is any truth in this, but one of my work mates is a youth coach at Bonnyrigg and was raving about this lad (guessing it's the same guy) all last season. Apparently he scored goals for fun for them.
  9. Superb mate. Any idea when the P&B team will change the strips at the top of the page?? The Stirling Albion skin still has the home strip from 3 seasons ago alongside last seasons away strip. How did you manage to get both strips interchanging Blueone?
  10. How have David Verlaque and Moses looked so far?
  11. Haha, that actually made me laugh. Such a pathetic way of a wind up that I did find it funny. Anyway, a good afternoon at Forthbank where I thought we looked comfortable throughout, but the score probably flatter us. Berwick were actually not that bad, however they made it easy for us by being sloppy and blasting the ball well over the bar whenever they got near the goals. Our First Half display was positive and our front 3 of MacDonald, Kavanagh and Smith were running riot. The Berwick back 4 just didn't know how to deal with them, throw in Morrison and Caddis coming from deep and it was only a matter of time before Berwick conceded. Darren Smith once again had a cracking game, and his 1st goal will stick in his mind for a while, Kavanagh was brilliant chasing the player 40 yards and winning the ball, Smith did the rest and the Berwick keeper stood no chance. The way the half went, the game was was over at Half Time and Stirling didn't really get out of 2nd gear in the Second Half and didn't really need to. The back 4 (along with Binnie) looked confident and assured, they were organised and won the audial balls, only really letting Berwick shoot from range. Andy Black was outstanding in the Centre of Midfield and was something of an unsung hero breaking up the Play and moving the ball on. There were no failures in red and it confirms that we should be taken serious this season. The players are playing for the manager and they are all playing with a spring in their step and looking good. Surprised to see that Sean Dickson was n't in the squad today, but I'm guessing he's injured or had something on. Also surprised to see Blair Henderson sitting behind the home dugout, showing that he left the club on good terms. Another good day at the office, and top of the league after 2 games, long may it continue.
  12. Clyde 1 vs 1 Annan Athletic Cowdenbeath 2 v 0 Edinburgh City Montrose 2 v 2 Stenhousemuir Peterhead 3 vs 1 Elgin Stirling Albion 3 V 0 Berwick Rangers
  13. Yip, you're spot on there KC. I didn't actually realise that about Kav but the minute I read about Hamilton and Falkirk I remember him signing from Falkirk along with Sandy Cunningham.
  14. I'm not sure I agree with this. In our First Team squad this season we've got Cammy Binnie, Ross McGeachie, Scott Davidson, Lee Hamilton, Connor McMullan & Ross Kavanagh who have all come through our youth set up. You can also throw Callumn Morrison to that list, but Hearts have bought him off of us and loaned him back. We've also had SPL teams buy youth players like Greg Hurst (and Morrison) off of us. We've got players involved with Scotland Youth squads and in the last 5 years, 3 players have won scholarships to America. Surely if it's ran right, a youth set up is a valued asset to provide players for the First Team and to give LOCAL players an avenue to play football? I'd argue it was.
