  1. Watson to nod home a 94th minute winner in the 4th vs 9th play-off at EEP before pulling a Portugal flag out his sock in front of a raging Norrie McCathie Stand.

  3. Tomorrow is my wee Boys first game at Somerset. After trying on all my old shirts, he asked the question 'When are you taking me to see the football, daddy?'. So we're going tomorrow and I honestly feel so proud in taking him, no matter the score, we're gonna make a day of it and enjoy it. He's been at Somerset but not during a game. He was very disappointed that 'Somerset Park' didn't have any slides, swings or roundabouts Rather he was an Ayr fan like his Daddy, than a old firm sheep . Here's hoping he has many return trips to see the super in the future.

  4. There is absolutely nothing to stop a predator walking into a public toilet or changing facility which appears to be the main hand ringing claim. Allowing people to easily change how they identify will not increase the risk of assault and will improve the lives of some of the most marginalised and abused people in society. Forgive me if you don't think people ardently opposed to this are bigots but I don't think there is another more suitable word.

  11. Let me just get this straight. Cammy MacPherson has largely been dreadful, but we're dangerously short on midfielders. The obvious plan of action would have been to go about our business quietly, keep a hold of him until the end of the season for squad depth reasons, and then send him packing at the end of the campaign. Callum Davidson's solution: Offer him a thoroughly undeserved pre-contract, resulting in his current club taking him back and demanding money for his return. Is this correct?

  17. The problem Callum Davidson faces is that when you start weighing it up, there are so many facets of his management that you can pour scrutiny on, whereas the defence is limited to past achievements that don't really provide much source for optimism in our current situation. He turned it round last season - by luck or design - with the introduction of a couple of new players into his system but the big difference was that despite not getting results, all the indicators pointed to a change of form. Basically we created a lot and gave little away. That brings us to the first aspect of his management, tactics: The system he developed last season was good and became even better when you added the predatory instincts of Melamed and everything that Rooney offered. Wide diagonals were effective with the aerial prowess of the latter and Tanser, McCann would snap in and win the balls off those contacts. Wotherspoon understood and thrived in the inside forward position behind a main striker. Kerr advanced up the field to give the extra man you need when pressing in games but operating with a back three. It wasn't perfect - we didn't score enough goals - but it worked. It looked a system that the manager had developed to suit his squad, which is always encouraging, and he received plaudits for his ability as a coach. It was understandable that he wouldn't change much going into this season in that sense but as the team changed, so did the results. We no longer had the ability to win the first or second contact on the diagonals, nobody to pick up the ball in the pockets of space in attacking midfield and nobody to step out from defence. Yet he has persevered with the same system for now four months with no upturn in form, results or performances. Quite the opposite and it's drained the belief and confidence from the squad of players it is his job to manage. At some point (in my opinion about a month ago) he had to realise this wasn't working and try something different. I think the players would have relished it as much as the fans. It might not have worked straight away but it would have shown an acknowledgement and willingness to rectify a worsening situation. We now don't know if he can come up with something different tactically when assessing where to go from here. The morale of the players looks at rock bottom and that's part of his remit, to manage a group of individuals and the unit. He said yesterday that they hadn't done what he asked of them in the first 40 minutes. The problem with that is that we were so well-drilled last season and the system has hardly changed. So why aren't they doing what he says? It's hard to believe they don't understand what is being asked of them given where we were previously. Have they stopped playing for him? The reaction to going a goal behind in the defence of your trophy was as limp as it could be. Is the bigger picture that he can't inspire players in the way some of his predecessors could? Saints have always lost their better players to clubs with greater resources but have largely avoided seeing the sort of defection witnessed with Scott Tanser's switch to St Mirren. The list of players not interested in signing a new contract under the manager is far longer than the list of those that are. Maybe that's purely financial and you can't judge him overly on that but you can on his business, or lack of, in the transfer market and his failure to evolve the squad he inherited. There is a defence, the uncertainty of the pandemic, the timing of his own arrival and most certainly the timing of the August departures of Kerr and McCann. But there is also a pretty damning case for the prosecution: Despite the success of the team last season, at just 0.47 goals per game, Saints recorded the lowest goals per game at home of ANY club in ANY division in the HISTORY of the Scottish league... AND we lost Guy Melamed. Yet this summer the manager made no proven additions to his striking options that he was clearly going to be happy with. How did he think that was going to work out? Tanser was replaced with a young loanee with no experience and the potential sale of Kerr was prepared for in the same manner. Loans have been the order of the day until this month, when it's potentially too late in any case. The advantages of Saints making a change now are you hope it lifts the players, we see something different tactically to surprise the opposition and you have a few days left to recruit some reinforcements with a lot of scouting having been done on potential players by others at the club. Sad to say but what are the potential disadvantages? I think when you get to the stage where you ask yourself if it can get any worse, you probably already know the answer to both that and whether the manager should remain in his role...

  18. Despite the score, The boyo had a Fantastic day today. His first time at a football game and, of course, he had a million questions He definitely wants to go back to Somerset and more than anything, see an Ayr goal. We toured Somerset park during the game because he "only has wee legs and can't stand too long" (Despite him dangling from the terracing railing for the majority)so we had to get a seat He loved seeing the team in real life, singing the songs and the atmosphere. Knows that another day, the score would be better Above all, he loved the Panda His eyes lit up as soon as he saw him Overall, I think we have another Honest man in the making and one very proud and happy daddy

  23. Signing a certain player aside, the sooner we get this “Falkirk family” club tag in the bin the better. We didn’t have that until the last 6/7 years and was always too close to the “Celtic Family” nonsense for my liking. We had an academy & community teams way before that tagline was banded about so it’s not needed. Focus on Saturday between 3-4.45 and everything else fits into place.

  25. No it’s not ridiculous. I took something like a 25% pay cut and dropped a shit load of benefits including a company car to change jobs away from one that was seriously impacting on my personal life, and as a result my mental health. Yes it wasn’t great to go from a decent and funded car to a Corsa and cut down on lot of luxuries but it probably saved my marriage and my sanity. And as a bonus 8 years on I’m now earning exactly double what I was when I started and there’s little stress compared to my old job. That’s not to bum me up, just show it can work out mid to long term. if anyone is unhappy, seriously unhappy in their job, I would advise them to change it when possible as soon as they can. You work to live, don’t live to work. Your happiness and mental health is much more important than status and money. Good luck.

  26. I once moved job for a massive pay rise. Biggest mistake ever. If you’re miserable at your work it’ll leak into the rest of your life. Money doesn’t solve much. It just gives you a nicer place to sit and have the same problems. If you can cope financially and it’s what you want to do, do it. If it turns out shite you can always go back to the money.

  27. Did it earlier and I thought it went okay. I was quite calm until I had to get up in front of everyone, but then the nerves kicked in and my voice turned into a bit of a warble. What did help, strangely, was the the fire alarm going off after about a minute. It lasted about a minute, and at first everyone just stared in silence thinking "oh f**k", what do we do? It was a false alarm, but given it was at the chapel at the crem, myself and some others started smiling at each other, but not quite laughing. Oddly, it helped though and relaxed me. Despite it being quite a mundane speech, I've now been called brave and amazing for picking it up again and finishing it. Never want to do it again though.

  36. My younger sister had a mental health crisis and was reported missing about six months ago. It was honestly one of the scariest things I have experienced. The whole time between finding out that she was missing and her being found by the police was agonising. I posted an appeal online and some of the comments from some people were disgusting. I honestly wanted to smash their faces in with a brick. The horrible things people say online for a few likes is horrendous. If you haven't got anything useful to say, then say nothing and scroll on.

He’s not going to slag the players after they got the win. He’ll say the performance was well below the standard and the players know that, which any competent manager would say

  41. The treatment of E2 has been nothing short of a disgrace. I feel really sorry for him. Makes his way out here from a foreign country, probably doesn’t have many - if any - friends in Scotland and undoubtedly has hopes of progressing his career with us. He’s just in the door and is almost instantly treated like absolute shite by the manager. I don’t believe that E2 is so pish that he can’t get a game for this dogshit side that can’t score goals. Is he really that awful that we had to bring Hendry and Ciftci in? The whole thing stinks.
