  1. I have the fear again

    John, if you're reading, we'll happily facilitate this.

    Buddist Monk continuing to have a shocker here...
  3. I have the fear again

    Having just seen the highlights again, it's a clear red card. Stelios has had at least one look if not two, at Sam Wardrop, which to me, would signal intent. Only stelios will actually know. But he's led with his elbow. End of. Therefore a red card.

    What a win! Great performance too. And another welcome clean-sheet which will hopefully further boost our improving backline and goalkeeper. Gal not having a meaningful save to make says it all, really good defending throughout today. Thought every one of our players was very good, Carswell and Hutton did well and kept the St. Mirren danger players really quiet. The sending-off handed us the advantage but it was really pleasing that we took it. Walsh took his goal really well and deserved it after a terrific display, constantly tormented the St. Mirren defence. Special mentions to Dowie, McLaughlin and Walsh who were outstanding and Nade ragdolling whoever that was in the corner with a 360 turn was as enjoyable as it was impressive. A huge win for us and hopefully breeds more confidence. We're playing really well just now and we're competing with bigger, full-time sides and that's really brilliant to see just now. Long may it continue. Bad day at the office for St. Mirren. They'll be better than that for sure but very flat from them. And great to have a good atmosphere with the lads with the drum, thumbs up to them, made a great bit of noise supporting the team.

    From his own front room, no less.
  7. Drumbarton vs Queen of the South

    Disappointing not to win when infront twice but conceding two sloppy goals, we can't really complain. I too anticipate eagerly the SonsTV highlights to clear up matters but for me, the Mark Stewart penalty claim wasn't a penalty. The other two big decisions, Queens' penalty was definitely one, no complaints there. But Roy's goal at the end, the linesman's had a shocker. Morrison wasn't interfering with play in the slightest, Roy robbed of a great winning goal there. Quite how Queen's fans are adamant it was the correct decision is baffling. Thought Queens edged the second half after we dominated the first. A point probably fair on reflection but being pegged back twice and having our goal wrongly chopped off makes it feel like two points dropped. Hutton and Wardrop excellent for us and happy to see Morrison finally hit the net too. Oh well, on to St. Mirren.
  8. Dunfermline vs Dumbarton 25/11/17

    Johnston is perfectly entitled to believe that his side should 'blow away' teams like us, they beat us 4-0 in the first fixture. The thing is, it's entirely unprofessional and arrogant to say it in the press. Say it to his players before/after the game if he wishes/, or behind closed doors to those he feels need to hear it. But to publicise such a thought in such a way smacks of arrogance and a lack of respect. Some strike from Froxy.[emoji7] Good point away from home, albeit disappointing not to take all three. That said, shows where we are that we're disappointed in only taking a point from EEP. On to QOS and hopefully we can build on and continue this good run we're on.
  9. The Sons vs The Black and Whites

    We got through. That's the important thing, but other than that there weren't many positives for us. Referee awful and inconsistent throughout. Elgin would have deserved their equaliser if they'd scored when hitting the post. Albeit I think they came into it second half more down to our inadequacies than them forcing their way in. Elgin are a decent side and it could've been very different had they got an equaliser. Good Luck to them for the rest of the season.
  10. TNS v Dumbarton

    Fair enough, I stand corrected. It must have been an out of date league table I was looking at. My point still stands though. Sort of. [emoji23]
  11. TNS v Dumbarton

    I'd imagine others might be of a similar thought to myself in thinking TNS are a quality side and a bit of a 'cut above' the rest due to their regular European exploits. However it's maybe worthwhile noting that they are only top of the Welsh Premier on goal difference only. In terms of games they have the exact same record, winning 8, drawing 2 and losing 2, as their rivals... Connah's Quay Nomads. And we know how utterly rank they were.
  12. Sons' sorrow

    Should be a decent trip and a bit of excitement. Do we know when we're likely to find out if it gets moved to the Sunday or not?
  13. Brechin City -vs- Dumbarton

    Pretty much. A classic it certainly wasn't, either as a contest or our performance but it got the job done, and there were positives to be taken from it as well which is always welcome.
  14. Brechin City -vs- Dumbarton

    I apologise if I'm speaking out of turn, but as an insider looking in on Brechin, I certainly don't think Brechin set up particularly defensively yesterday. If you did then it's a damning indictment of how poor we were because we totally failed to break you down or impose ourselves on the game. For me, and again apologies if it hurts, the quality is just lacking in the Brechin side. They worked hard yesterday no doubt, and are a great and welcoming club, but as a championship side, on the pitch they offered very little against their heavily depleted closest rivals.
  15. Brechin City -vs- Dumbarton

    Thought Hill was very solid today and Boomer and Wardrop were decent going forward. Walsh was good in spells but was let down too often by the final product. Hutton and Carswell did actually work much better together than Hutton has with Barr, supported by Roy and Walsh. Not much came off for Mark Stewart and it was a shame for him his goal was wrongly disallowed for McLean crumpling in a heap, but hey-ho, it's the points that matter.
