  1. Not a great watch today which was spoiled by the wind to a large extent. Probably slightly fortunate to take all 3 points but we lost to a penalty last week so things even up usually. After we scored we seemed content to sit back and soak up the pressure. Today that worked as we defended well albeit EF weaved pretty patterns up to the last third but then lacked a decent final ball. Our keeper really only had to make one save of any note. Against more creative opponents this tactic would be extremely dangerous but Murray got away with it today!!! The team sheet looked a bit suspect with no McCann Ryan or Roberts and a slightly makeshift defence with McDanald going from RB to LB and Fordyce moving from CB to RB. However they defended as a unit pretty well throughout. I agree with others who've suggested that Fordyce has been a bit of an unsung hero this season as he's been very consistent no matter what position he's been asked to play. Like many others I'm not sure that McKay brings enough to the midfield and even his long throws have lost any element of surprise or productivity. I think I still prefer Roberts in his place as he certainly brought more energy and creativity to proceedings than McKay when he came on. We now have 8 cup finals left (A) Forfar, Stranraer, Raith, Falkirk and Clyde (H) Dumbarton, Peterhead and Montrose Hope Andy Ryan, Leon McCann and Calum Smith's injuries arent too serious as we need all 3 on the pitch to perform at our best. Would be a tough ask to win the title from our current position 5 behind Raith and a vastly inferior goal difference to the top 2 but hope springs eternal and we should have enough to make the play offs. The next few weeks should be very interesting ...........................
  2. Excellent result. Well done to everyone concerned. [emoji471] Hopefully the first of many in the future. [emoji122][emoji122][emoji122]
  3. Another very tough away fixture. Montrose have had a great season so far. Hopefully a similar outcome to the Balmoor result last week. Would be quite happy with a draw though. C’mon the Diamonds [emoji815]️[emoji815]️[emoji815]️
  4. Do Peterhead not have an artificial pitch as well?
  5. Would take a win of any sort at Balmoor on Saturday. I missed the good run earlier in the season having been traumatised at the Montrose 1-3 game when we played as badly as I think I’ve ever seen. I made my return at Broadwood for ‘that’ Clyde game but hadn’t seen much to convince me that we could go on another run since. On Saturday that changed as I at last saw the team put in one of their best performances since that good run. Andy Ryan makes such a difference as the main front man and really has a Championship pedigree. Could he be playing Championship football with the Diamonds rather than the Pars next season?? Here’s hoping. Ian Murray also looks as though he’s brought in a good loanee in Ian Murray from Hibs giving us more midfield creativity. The defence have been playing well of late and Leon McCann has been a revelation since he arrived. He’s held down the left back slot on merit at 17 yrs of age at the expense of Adam Eckersley for a large part of the season having taken his chance when Eckersley was injured. We need to try and make sure of a top 4 spot first of all and then see where our performances take us thereafter. Realistically the title should be Falkirk’s or Rovers but you just never know.................. Prediction:- A hard fought 0-1. C’mon the Diamonds [emoji815]️[emoji815]️[emoji815]️
  6. Well are you ITK if you read it in the Daily Ranger [emoji23]
  7. I think I’d prefer silence as well. Booing must be very demotivating especially for younger players. I’m sure very few players actually go onto the pitch with the intention of being P**H.
  8. Anyone see the report that midfielder Rhys McCabe ex Rangers is on trial with us having returned from playing with St Patrick’s in Ireland.
  9. Here’s hoping the Diamonds turn up for this one. Expecting quite a few through to Tynecastle. Similar result to any of the 90’s semi finals would do nicely [emoji846]
  10. Hard fought victory today. Very flat in 1st half. More urgency in 2nd. Didn’t think it was a pen. Big Nat brought something different to our game plan (if we had one?). The man can make a pass which we didn’t do nearly enough of especially 1st half. Hope Andy Ryan rumours which I heard again at the game are true. If so would improve our title chances significantly. Good 3 points eventually. Keep it up guys. Well done [emoji815]️[emoji815]️[emoji815]️[emoji813]️[emoji813]️[emoji813]️
  11. Didn’t realise we were playing East Fife again this week!?!?!?
  12. Would gladly take a point at Methil and move onto a home match against the league leaders
