  1. I'm not going to get into the argument of should be be given another chance or not (I believe he should but can see both sides) but there is no doubt as a player, he'll be a superb signing for Edinburgh and could make real difference for them.
  2. With that in mind, what has happened to Jack Smith this season? I know he was loaned back to EK last year but has he been kept on for League 2?
  3. John Gemmell aka The Beast, said that he was the best Defender he played against in a THHP podcast.
  4. Good signing for them. Injury took it's toll on McMillan and people tend to forget he was a good player for us before it happened. No doubt at all that he was finished at this level, however he is more than capable for the Lowland League and good luck to him.
  5. Phil Johnston has stollen a wage from football for over 5 years now, that's a fact. How he gets away with it is beyond me!
  6. Really simple but a really smart kit, certainly better than last years imho.
  7. Yip, right wing although to be fair, when Stuart McLaren was our manager, he played through the middle in a 4-2-3-1 at times and he was just as effective. Scored an absolute worldly against Montrose from there (2nd goal here: ). He occasionally got shifted to the left but wasn't as effective but always looked to get on the ball and never gave up.
  8. Reports on our forum that Mark Burbridge has been invited to train with us over pre-season. Any good lads?
  9. Noticed on Twitter last night that Marc McKenzie had signed for you. Surprised he couldn't get another senior club (although maybe this was just handy and local for him), he'll do well for you I'm sure and will become a fans favourite. I'm sure all Binos would wish him well.
  10. Wonder if Jim Weir will get the "do you know who I've played for" chat?
  11. I'll be honest with you, I think it's a good looking shirt without one, bet whoever logo gets printed on it and makes it look cheap and nasty.
  12. Both The Sun and The Scotsman reporting what we all suspected, Frazer Wright is set to be announced as Assistant Manager. The Sun report says: "Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay is to be reunited with his Scottish Cup defensive winning partner Frazer Wright. The duo were part of St.Johnstone's silverware clinching side of 2014 and Wright is set to be named as Binos assistant manager today. Wright is in line to take the Stirling squad for their initial pre-season training sessions as Mackay is attending the Uefa Under 21 tournament as part of his coaching development."
  13. Yeah, would agree with Rhliston on Stirling. I think the players that were retained played well under Dave Mackay and were our better players when we went on that unbelievable run and nearly made the Play Offs. The only player that has left that will be a loss is Chris Smith, but MacKay has made the decision to go with our young Goalkeeper (Cammy Binnie) and our support have no issue with that as it's obvious that we have a young talented Goalkeeper in our squad, that could go the same way as Cowdenbeath's Jamie Sneddon. Managing to retain Andy Little could be a master stroke and it will be interesting to see how Liam Caddis does with a proper pre-season and played in his proper position. With regards to the signings, there have only been 2 (Stuart Noble from Peterhead and Peter McDonald from Clyde) but I think both are good additions on paper. Although he apparently had a stinker last season, Noble has proven to be more than capable in both League 1 & 2 and talking of stinking, McDonald scored for fun in a Clyde team that was just that last year, if we can get "the runners" right about him then he'll be an asset. I'm not making predictions this year (all 10 teams will fancy making the Play Offs come kick off) but I'm happy with the business Mackay has done so far and our team is shaping up to look ok.
  14. He's not, he's traded like for like, but it's a good move for him and he'll be a great asset for Stenny
  15. We're £170 so it probably brings you in line with most other teams, I would guess.
