  1. Commented on that last night as well, thought the ball slowed up very fast.
  2. Its an absolute gift of a chance, you just know if that was DGW the net would be bulging.
  3. PATG at the weekend or is it pre-paid tickets? muchos gracias.
  4. Having watched the highlights there, I defo think he's injured BEFORE the first goal, he looks like the tin man trying to get to Tade.
  5. I've left it to cool off since last night, and with my neutral head on.... it was a fairly entertaining 2nd half, I'll say that. We kept the ball well enough, dictated the play and had Clyde penned in, but its a 90+ min game, and we've gifted teams chances recently (East Fife were hopeless and didn't take them, Falkirk took a couple of their multiple gifts and Clyde were what I can only describe as clinical last night), and I'm sorry but if you defend like that twice and ship 2 goals based on those 2 lapses, you reap exactly what you sow unfortunately. First half I thought big Nicoll had Eastons number, never gave him a minute, had obviously been told to man mark him, match runs and just generally not give him any space, in fact, Eastons first real sparkle came in the second half when Frizzell had dragged Nicoll out of position and left Easton to run at Clydes right side of defence. A couple of times there was shouts for fouls by Nicoll, but IMO it was hard fair challenges, although he did have a nibble at Frizzell on the touch line and then was correctly booked when he was, but I thought he was absolutely fine for Clyde tbh. Kyle McDonald was very good last night, a real attacking natural outlet we don't get from Walker or (to an extent) McGill filling in there. Smiths missed chance in the first half looked easier to score, but it was an awkward height so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. I'd like to see the first goal again, I thought Fordyce was far too slow getting out to Tade to stop the cross, and if he was injured at that point or not 100%, he should have been off before then, and WTF is the keeper doing at both goals, but again, I'll have to see them again to confirm. Yes its disappointing to throw away 2 points, and the general consensus on here is Airdrie were the better team, counts for hee haw though if you can't turn dominance into goals. It really does highlight how much we need a proper striker, unfortunately though a 20+ goal a season man isn't just going to chap our door and offer his services for free. Work to do, good attacking performance and control of the game - shocking defending.
  6. What we saying about this game then? Hopefully the lads aren't too fatigued after Saturday, I'd hoped for maybe another signing in, even for the bench but nothing yet. I've got a horrible feeling this will finish 1-1 tonight.

  8. No complaints from me about that statement The flag has and always will be a talking point, but I still can't believe it's winding folk up.
  9. Don't know if I'm alone in thinking this, but I genuinely have not a care in the world what the score is today. I'd much rather give a team of under 19's or whoever a game, and keep everyone fresh for Tuesday. Probably won't even stream the game either tbh. It's a strange feeling because I've been really enjoying the games recently but I just feel this Is a distraction we could do without, especially squad size, wise.
  10. Seen it this morning on the falkirktv highlights on YouTube. Same as at the time, I still don't know why that's been chopped off. If anything, it highlights how unbelievably poor the ref was for both teams, as there were a few we got I thought were soft also.
  11. Fwiw I think Falkirk should have had a stonewaller right before curries excellent save, however by letting the play go and allowing the shot it shouldn't then be pulled back but I don't know the exact rules or anything, and our disallowed goal I thought looked perfectly fine from where I was, but again that's not from seeing anything back and at the opposite end!
  12. That game drew a lot of parallels with last week. A controlled first half performance but gave away golden chances and an out of sorts second half, only Falkirk were far more direct and dangerous than east fife were. First half I thought middle to front the passing was decent and the second goal build up play got the finish it deserved. If McInroy isnt coming back which looks doubtful now I'll admit, I think it really means we need a centre half in to allow McCabe to move up. In that second half especially we allowed Falkirk too much time to go forward, but I won't dwell on it, 3 points and move on to a big challenge next week.

  14. Really don't know what to make of this game if I'm honest, it's really a must win game for us with at least 1 of Montrose and Cove going to drop points. If we remain professional and stick to what we've been doing then there's no reason we can't win again, but as others have said, Dowds in the form he's in at the moment won't let us off with half the mistakes we've presented other teams with recently.
  15. When he's in the mood, he's absolutely ridiculous, but like most "good" players in this league, there's always a game or 2 in between where he struggles to get going a wee bit. Not complaining at all btw, he never hides, always wants the ball and has wonderful quick feet. but, in answer to yer question....... naw, ye cannae!
  16. Enjoyed that first half on Saturday, very relaxed atmosphere and the early goal allowed the team to play with that confidence we've become accustomed to (still feels strange, being Airdrie and all that!). First goal was a great finish but WTF are both centre halves doing, Allan is literally standing with 2 yards of space either side, and his first touch is wonderful. Nice build up play for the second, great knock down by Allan, but again, the space in the box is ridiculous, but not our problem so wont complain. Friz ball for the 3rd is delicious, as is the first touch by Easton. Not even going to mention the 2nd half. Would I liked to have seen some more goals? of course, but if its a choice of 3-0 at half time and see out games, sign me up! A few times on Saturday there were some situations where we had no right to win a ball or were 70/30 against to win a challenge and we came out on top. The desire and will to win individual battles was second to none. I've genuinely never been as happy watching an Airdrie team in a long time, so Kudos to Murray et al for building a team which makes going to the games on a saturday very, very easy.

  18. I don't think so, I think he goes to punch it and it sclafs off his knuckles and in. Can actually hear the Dumbarton players in the video saying "Sam's, SAMS...........f*ck me man" the last wee bit is said with such lack of surprise as well.
  19. That's something I genuinely didn't know. I'll probably notice it all the time now
  20. I know they probably get a lot of decent comments (or should!) But the commentary team on sons TV were excellent today. It's far easier listening to games at our level when the people commentating actually have half an idea of what they're talking about.
  21. I'd like to see a replay of the penalty claim at the end, my heart was in my mouth watching that at the end. If it was a penalty it just adds to the bizarre decisions of the 'foul' at the end on boyle and the disallowed goal so probably evened itself out. I'll take the 3 points on a difficult pitch with players out and not firing on all cylinders
  22. Couldn't see from the stream if there was a foul or not, I'm sure we'll get a better look on the highlights from behind the goal.
  23. Only mentioning what I heard last night that there's been another positive test since the game the other night. If it's rubbish then I apologise
