Willie Miller was at the game for Sportsound. 

Willie Miller is terrible only better than Biscuits and Bonnar. Miller constantly moaning about games. Don't think I've ever heard him being positive unless it's Aberdeen.

Both he and Richard Gordon fucking hate us as well after they made complete c***s of themselves over the 8/8/8 league plan and launched some pretty disgraceful attacks on Gilmour ( at the behest of Milne and Lawell). Both of them sounded like they'd been a little bit sick in their mouths today.

Never found Gordon too bad actually. Miller is on another level.

Given that Dundee United fans have already decided they'll win their game in hand and beat us at Tannadice it's pleasing to see us go two points clear today.

Unlike Saint Mirren, Morton are actually on a discernable upward trajectory year on year. Which is why you finished a point beneath us in your first season at this level and thirteen points behind us this season. 

Thanks for playing anyway.

'Jack' couldn't give a toss about 'the Saints' and if he wants to manage Dundee there's nothing that your club can do to stop him. 

Hard lines.

What an absolute minter :lol::lol::lol:

 

Thanks for playing though :lol:

It's been awfully quiet in here this season.

Wouldn't have anything to do with that 20 point gap, would it?

Miller is shocking. He displays a terrible lack of knowledge about the championship. All the other reporters read out the teams suggesting the formations the teams would be playing in whereas Miller just read Saints and Dumbarton teams in numerical order. Mind you he's not much better when covering the premiership. He also got put in his place by Tom English when discussing Michael O'Neal for the Scotland job

Willie Miller is an appalling pundit, and is even worse on comms. My heart sinks when I hear he's featuring on BBC's coverage in some capacity. Stephen McGinn scores our second yesterday, Miller pipes up, "Goal for Falkirk!"

Followed by a blundering, sleep-inducing description of the goal.  "It was an eh...cross, the corner eh, came in to eh..." spit it out Willie for goodness sake.

So.... signings...

Is it certain that Flynn is signing? After all the chat about Hill I would imagine the only reason he wouldn't come is if he wasn't up for it, as both clubs and Ross seem to be.

For the rest of the window? A striker and defender, maybe both on loan as they would effectively be cover.

I was a bit underwhelmed with McGinn and thought he went off the boil after a good start to his second spell, but he's been absolutely superb the last few months. He was our best player by miles against Morton and Inverness. Just needs a goal this season!

Some man.

Possibly fitness was an issue Octoberish - I remember one pre-match report on the OS before Magennis was fully back stating that SM was doubtful as he hadn't trained during the week. My guess is his recent improved performances are due to regaining full fitness. Like you said - some man! :wub:

Really? We have Eckersley, MacKenzie and Irvine all available but the current 4 do not look like losing their place anytime soon. We do not need another defender. And if we suddenly had a huge injury list we can do what we did before - get an 'emergency' loan in.

With Buchanan gone we have 3 CBs MacKenzie, Davis and Baird - with both MacKenzie and Davis being out for long spells to injury. Eckerlsey is currently injured and Irvine is just back from injury.

Thought McGinn looked like he was carrying a knock yesterday, but he was excellent all afternoon and his goal was superb.

Flynn coming in gives us a genuine attacking option on the right, with Magennis moving in to partner McGinn and McShane probably riding pine.

Hill will provide more cover in that central midfield area.

Two good signings. If we are bringing one more in it would surely be a striker.

McGinn was struggling in 2nd half before he scored. Looked like he was holding, then stretching his groin so hopefully just a niggle and nothing that will keep him out.

Actually I thought the strength our bench yesterday was impressive with Irvine. MacKenzie, Sutton & Mullen all proven at this level I'm unsure about Eckersley but I thought he and Josh Todd were back in training. Throw in the new arrivals and competition for places is going to be fierce,  Looking around at the other teams benches yesterday I reckon ours is comparatively strong - I realize we're coming into that part of the season where suspensions are a factor and injuries can strike at any time but I don't think we've anything to panic about.

Re the CH position ideally I'd prefer another option too but I think of the three only Mackenzie is what I'd consider injury prone - Davis wasn't rushed back and other than being rested for the artificial surface at Palmerston seems to be fully recovered. I don't think JR would have let Buchannan leave if there was any doubt about Davis's fitness.

I don't really get why so many people think McShane should, or will, be dropped for a guy who we haven't actually seen play yet. McShane has been really good this season. He's got more assists than anyone else in the team and is a real creative force in our midfield. He's also one of Ross' guys and hasn't let him down. Flynn, or Magennis for that matter, are going to have to earn McShane's spot, because right now he's deservedly ahead of both as a central midfielder.
