  1. St Roch's F.C. 2017-2018

    Saturday will let us know if we are a better team after the recent signings as last week was a bit of a non event and Rossvale will prove a much sterner test

    Nice words Scott and I think the vast majority of fans will nod in agreement with most of what you said . I would only disagree with your view he was not the best striker at the club when you look at his goals ratio as despite not being a prolific goalscorer his game was not just scoring goals especially in our system which tends to be one up and his role tended to be holding up the ball and bringing others into play so I think it was no surprise logan scored so many over the 3 seasons musa played in the team as his hold up play and creating for others was essential in the system we play. Skill wise I don't think there is a player even close to his ability in the division as I said previously feet more nimble than fred astaire his touch and movement on many a coo field was a joy to behold . So for me he was easily the best striker at the club in fact best striker in the division Our loss is certainly shire's gain But I look forward to his return on the 16th Dec and hope the fans give him a fantastic reception.

    So the time to pass has came and big B to the candy faithful has decided to part company with the club and try pastures new . Last season after watching him for the first time I was compelled to write " babucarr musa is one of the most talented youngsters I have saw in the junior game He could trap a medicine baw in a phone box , has more tricks than harry houdini and is more nimble on his feet than fred astaire yes the lad is raw and yes his tactical awareness must improve but he has what many others at his age don't have and its sheer natural ability a boy born to entertain and play beautiful football and I would pay the £5 entrance fee just to see him play ". So for me nothing much has changed since I first saw the tall Gambian plying his magic on the turf of JMP so it's with a heavy heart I say farewell best of luck and thanks for the memories. As gerry cinnamon once sang " it's not the best It's not the worse But there's diamonds in the mud". I hope the big fella gets a top team and others enjoy watching the big fella produce his little bit of magic.

    Am gonna give some credit to tam Hanlon today He totally exploded today and was probably subbed cos he would have got himself sent off if he wasn't so that's something he has to work on but the last 15 or so mins we saw the real tam Hanlon on the touchline encouraging his teammates then racing down the pitch the pitch to join in with the celebrations and there was not a happier guy in the ground when Logie equalised . What that showed me today was despite his consistent moaning the guy is a great team mate who just wants them to be the best they can . It would have been easy to have sulked into the dressing room and then left blaming everyone else but not tam he encouraged and urged his m8s on when even I had given up the ghost on the terrace and that for me is what makes a great team mate Well done tam

    Bit harsh there kinky I think if you have not been to the ground often your 1st reaction is that pitch is shite which it is but there is a million and one reasons why it's shite and despite it being shite Ken works wonders on it every week . Folk see lots of these plastic pitches springing up all over the country in a daily basis and sometimes wrongly assume that they are cheap to buy and lay but tbf many average punters are not privy to the actual costs so like I said bit harsh let's educate folk not chide them for having an opinion . I want floodlights but I'm not even gonna go down that road hahaha.

    Very impressed by the number six ( the world famous A. TRAILIST ) that came on at half time and was nice to see again a player who sits in front of the back 4 and can dictate the play so hopefully we tie him and an old favourite up this week and hopefully that and today's fighting performance can give us the little spark and push which has been lacking in recent weeks .

    I would be very disappointed if the club in the end rejected this project as for me it works twofold 1. Great for the club and fans to have a proper 21st century terrace A place for the fans to enjoy the match out of the eliments and a place which could become the hub of the support to generate noise passion and colour as we roar our lads to victory every second Saturday. 2. It would also cosmetically look fantastic which would great for the image of the club and the wider community at large . I know and understand there are folk on the committee who basically work for st rochs 24/7 and too add this project on to there workload would be grossly unfair so for an ideal senario would be for plans and location to be discussed agreed and rubber stamped then a sub committee of yourself kinky and mark then put in charge and left to deliver with the help of anyone who wishes to support this project through whatever means the sub committee see fit . It's a fantastic proposal and I for one sincerely hope that it can be agreed and delivered as it would be a fitting tribute to celebrate our 100th anniversary in just over 2 yrs time .

    I would disagree kinky yes if a player is sent off for two tackles them common sense says no need for fine but if a player is sent of for dissent or violent conduct then yes hammer them in the pocket . I would rather as a fan watch a football match in the rain and mud than watch a match being played in gale force winds when it simply becomes a lottery

    The wind ruined the 1st half as it became a bit of a non event when you try to knock the ball forward and it just comes straight back to you . I find it strange refs see a puddle on the pitch and postpone a match yet allow games to be played in farcical conditions like Saturday . The second half the wind had eased and the match began and we were second best in every department and bellshill deserve the plaudits on a very well organised fighting performance so now we need to regroup and go again vs yoker we still have everything to play for so I'm hoping the players give the gaffer and the fans a positive response and collect the 3 points . On the discipline issue ..simple FINE them soon as you start taking money out there pockets that will soon stop.
  13. St Roch's F.C. 2017-2018

    I was hiding from the wind in the shed so too far from both incidents to make an informed opinion but too start discussing the ref would only mask a poor performance against a hungrier determined team who deserved there win
  14. St Roch's F.C. 2017-2018

    Can have no complaints today We just never turned up and Bellshill well worth there win
