  1. I confidently predict a resounding, albeit surprising, Pars win by the margin of a solitary goal. Hopefully this result happens on Saturday, but I'm confident it'll come before the end of the season.
  2. I had forgotten about that - think that was when I knew we weren't getting any decisions. He obviously didn't see it and was swayed by pressure.
  3. There was a handball by ICT in our box (not given) just before the free kick (that wasn't) and subsequent goal (that wasn't across the line). Referee had a shocker, not helped by an assistant who was worse. Lots of other incidents in that game that were poor and most went against us. A flukey deflected goal to win, just to put the boot in. More seething as I'd fully supported ICT with their statement re Keatings red card incident citing "sporting integrity". Not that I'd expected any of their players to say to the ref "I didn't think it crossed the line, sir" instead of celebrating like they'd won a goldfish. Did Partick not have a ghost goal incident with us last season and fans commented that it balanced out the Doolan one they weren't given against Morton. I suppose our luck will balance out at some point, or are we still repaying karma for the Jimmy Sandison pen nearly three decades on... Not even a peep in the media about it. Heartening to see a fairly dece performance but still gutted.
  4. Had to rewind/rewatch... “Some of Caley Thistle fans were pulling the Celtic players down in the box and aw that”?! Eh?
  5. The silence when Danny Devine scores has deafened...
  6. Really quite optimistic about this one. Assume the fellow with the ankle bracelet isn't allowed out on a Friday night? Sent from my recently upgraded Nokia 3310 using the Pie and Bovril Basic program I entered manually from a 1984 edition of Computer User and a long range antenna fashioned from a rusty coathanger.
  7. Seems crystal clear to me. Enforcer, hit man, mule all share common requirements to this job description...
  8. How will replacing the manager guarantee against that? It's the same ones on here that go quiet when we go on a winning run ...then toys oot the pram on a losing one. The league has tightened up again, granted, but now is no time for panic. Just because there are a number of folk shouting, loudly, doesn't mean that's the majority.
  9. Vast majority? More like very vocal minority. This season has pretty much been inconsistent as expected. Next season should be what Crawford gets measured on. Last two games have no doubt knocked the stuffing out of confidence (which has been key reason that we go on runs of losing and winning). If chances had gone in early doors yesterday when we were well on top we’d probably have seen out that game comfortably. Need a bit of luck and I’ve no doubt we’ll again be challenging for playoffs again. Some of our fans again acting like there is some sort of pecking order based on crowds and want instant results rather than being patient. Probably pretty much alone on this forum with these thoughts but I’ll take the flak no doubt coming my way. Don’t for one minute think I didn’t leave the ground devastated by yesterday’s result. It’s just I think that changing management team will cost money and will not guarantee success - just look at Falkirk and where they ended up carrying out multiple managerial lobotomies.
  10. Devine to play a blinder and score one of the goals in a 2-0 win. Think absence of Hearts players confirms what I heard about Stendel recalling them in JTW.
  11. Thought I had this sewn up when I saw erroneous Twitter post at 4-4. Gutted.
  12. And so it begins. Not content with "once in a generation" strapline the "never to again be revisited" comes to the fore. I treat my referenda like the Martini ad. I'll vote anytime, anyplace, anywhere. Bring. It. On.
  13. What, one of her candidates winning election is not worth celebrating? Media will no doubt spin it as delight at Jo Swinson being defeated. Which is also worth celebrating the demise of the squirrel scarer.
  14. Scoring draw with Pars coming from behind this time. Dundee to get a controversial decision go their way.
  15. ...just £4 a month can buy wee Jimmy, fae Fife, a Mcdonalds. Now I've pulled on your heartstrings can I have your account details and sort code?
  16. Was geared up for going to this but £34 for me and the laddie + fuel + food. So £50 for a couple of hours "entertainment" in the cauld. Giving it a miss, pure greed. Don't even get me started about our two home Friday night fixtures that allow Dundee fans to get their away fixtures against us free. Hoping someone goes to the game in a submarine [emoji6]
  17. For Rangers pen; Not lucky, just poor refereeing versus the current laws of the game. Celtic goal was fortuitous too, again poor refereeing missing the offside. Both laws (keeper off line and offside) are similar in that they cover player positioning to seek an illegal advantage. It’s just one of the laws, being newer, is more frowned upon. Pars v Morton. Definite penalty. Get out of the way when your teammate trying to clear. The end.
  18. Happened on Saturday at East End Park, it was marginal too and Nisbet scored retake.
  19. He was off his line when ball struck. There was much debate during Women’s World Cup back in the summer regarding this. If ball goes in there’s no debate as only happens when saved/missed. No luck involved.
