  1. He'll say "we didn't start the game well, we gifted cheap goals and we did't create enough or cause them enough problems" I'd say we didn't want it enough, they were better and we still can't defend balls into the box, especially high balls despite playing with 5 defenders over 6' in height. I fear for us on Tuesday against Peterhead and on Saturday against Cove, we could be there for the taking if HE doesn't get it sorted out.
  2. Bear in mind McGlynn never said the words, it was more just the feeling I got from what was said.
  3. I agree 50 is a bit light but that depends on the definition of Vaughan's (if he stays fit and finds the net) double figures being only 10, if he got say 15 or more then that'd be 55+, 20 would be 60 and that's only 3 less than Arbroath won the league with and Forfar finished 2nd with only 54. Majorly the issue is goals obviously but not conceding 2/3 of what you score is key. If the midfield and co could averaged 6 goals a piece that'd be almost 50 alone, but I think that's less likely that Lewie scoring 20 tbh. If it's positivity your after 3o goals would probably be enough to win the league........as you as you kept 36 clean sheets. 😁
  4. After the brief chat I had with McGlynn on Saturday I was left with the opinion that there will be no further signings this window. I asked if he was worried where the goals were coming from and he said no. He reckons if they share them about we will be fine. An average of 5 a piece for Allan, Anderson, Henry, Victoria, Spencer, Bowie, Dingwall and another 5 from the rest would give us 40 goals add in double figures for Vaughan and there's 50 goals. Not ideal but it is what it is and if we can work out how to keep the back door shut we will be fine. I did ask about the jackpot player and John just said we didn't get him and it won't be happening. Just have to wait until Jan and we sign HSWHW's on loan.
  5. Nando has been at the club since March or April, Glynns obviously seen something in him he likes and thinks he can work with. Perhaps the mistake was playing him against Dundee (and possibly ICT), maybe P'heid and Cove would have been better for him.....than again maybe not. If all else fails we can always offload him to the Pars.
  6. I think he's checking for his extra leg.
  7. Watched the footage on Raith TV, have to say if it was a foul on the defender for the first goal then for me it looked like it would have been s very soft decision, there is a wee nudge and a stumble but the defender simply has to do much much better. Again for the penalty there's a wee nudge from the Dee No 6 but it doesn't change anything Nando lifts his foot too high, there's contact and it's a pen all day, poor decision making by Nando, twice!. We might have had a pen too though the Dee man plays the ball but through the Matthews leg, Meekings (?) makes less contact with the ball than the player but I suppose he did get a touch. No biggie, the games a bogie by then anyway 2-0 down after 27 mins and the game plan is well shot! Third goal was from good play Dee dragged Davo and Nando wide left and hey presto we were cut open unlike the self inflicted wounds of the other 2 goals, all in all Dundee were stronger and better and looked like they wanted it far more. than we did (especially defensively).
  8. He can laugh all he likes, he hasn't got 90 mins in his legs these days and he knows it too.
  9. My initial reaction too. Then again JMcG is held in high esteem at Parkhead. Have to say though after having witnessed the kickings dished out to Vaughan and Dingwall last season unless the 16 years old has grown a foot taller and been hitting the gym all summer then if I were youth team management at Celtic I'd doubt I be risking him.
  10. Right hauf time subbies are on, who is playing in which positions please?
  11. I had it in my head that Faissal El Bakhtaoui was a really tall lad, according to the web he's only 5'10". I though we'd be looking for a bigger guy as a target man but hey, if he can find the net (something he's not been too good at since his 1st spell at the dark side). Not wanting to compare every guy that comes in to Nisbet who was 6'1" but...
  12. Difficult to tell, but was that sarcasm? Who are the trialists? Anyone know?
  13. I can! And it all too often proves to be a false dawn, this has lead to me superstitiously preferring to do shite in pre-season....although to be fair I've seen that trend continue too! Not seen a game yet but listened to various appraisals and most seem to be happy that the team has a better balance about it. From the various highlights I like the way the midfield looks hungrier and aren't giving opposition time on the ball, it bodes well. Still hoping for a loan signing that one that McGlynn said would be like "hitting the jackpot". I really hope it's a striker as I still feel we may be short on goals, mind you we all said that last season and look what Nizzy did! Perhaps Allan will be the same.
  14. Seems to be causing more trouble to folks just with his surname than the opposition.
  15. Yours if you want it, as many hours a week as you like and totally unpaid, just contact Ally More or Andy Mill.
  16. Deary me, does anyone on here actually know how many fulltime ground staff there are and if so can they name him? 1 fulltime groundsman who looks after the playing surface and 1 or 2 pt guys who come in to help out, they have more work to do than the old groundsman used to as the surface is being used 7 days a week. There are also guys supplied by FRC on community service who help clean up on Mondays after games. Fulltime ground staff plural? Some folks are clueless.
  17. Aye, but I bet lobbing you with that diving header from 20 yards was a sweet moment for someone 😁
  18. I'd say so too, but I don't think the rushed wayward pass from midfield (Hendry?) helped much.
  19. Winning or losing preseason friendlies isn’t of any great importance, they always say it’s more about gaining match sharpness, bedding in the new guys and identify weaknesses. On the other hand a wins a win and McGlynn has often said it’s a great habit to form. i won’t get to any of the preseason games so I’ll be interested to hear from those there what their views are, particularly where we looked strong and where we didn’t.
  20. I think it's clearly just a ruse on the Rovers part. That's obviously just the training gear and the real strip will be getting released soon.
  21. I believe we are trialing a new product for Twitter, it’s called an Arsehole filter.
  22. Still uncertain as embroidery is sewing. I only asked as I'd heard someone who was there were of the opinion that it was an iron on badge
