  1. Bloody hell you're a sensitive soul, he was being funny calling for mods too, it wasn't about disagreeing with you on Kelly, it was for you typing 'of' when it should have been 'have'.
  2. Good article in the DR from Lee Miller. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/lee-miller-opens-up-falkirk-12919598
  3. Exactly, really don't know how he can't see that. Neuer is one of the best keepers in the world and comes out covering as a sweeper all the time, LiviLion00 will have to get in touch with him to tell him he's doing it all wrong.
  4. By your logic Gallagher and Lithgow were at fault for not covering Halkett losing possession too, everyone should be positioned knowing Halkett was going to lose possession. Kelly isn't as good a keeper as Alexander, he's still a young keeper with a lot to learn, and Alexander was at the end of his career with a wealth of experience, but this is just nonsense trying to blame him yesterday. Last season Alexander kicked the ball off an oncoming Dunfermline player after Longridge played him a short pass back, he should've knocked it to the side instead of kicking it straight up the pitch, but he didn't get any criticism for it, in fact he learnt from his mistake and knocked it to the side in another game when the same thing happened, and he was an experienced keeper, Kelly is in for a tough time if this is the kind of criticism he's going to get when it isn't even his fault.
  5. Bloody hell, take a settler and calm down.
  6. That;'s not what i said, you seem to be taking this all the wrong way and just making things up. You keep missing the point, he was covering the defenders, if Halkett doesn't lose the ball then he's doing exactly what he should be doing and positioned where he should be, Halkett though is clearly at fault losing the ball and puts Kelly in the position where he's caught out of his goal. You can't seriously be saying Kelly should know Halkett will lose the ball and stay back in his goal, that is just ludicrous, he's doing exactly what he should be doing when our defenders move up the pitch, come out and cover for a long ball played in behind them
  7. A picture doesn't tell you everything, as I explained in my post, he was covering the defenders playing a high line, you look at any game and you'll see keepers doing the same. Halkett losing the ball exposed Kelly, if you're blaming Kelly then i'm afraid you're just looking for an excuse to have a go at him and not being fair.

    I actually like it and think it gets you perfectly prepared for the league campaign. You get several pre season games in and then the Betfred ones start, giving you competitive games to sharpen right up, and a good mixture of teams from all the different leagues too. You can play all the pre season games you want and it doesn't get you as sharp as a competitive one.
  9. Were you just going by a picture, taking the position of the players and keeper as they stood when the goal occurred though. In reality we were playing a high line, and keepers come out of their box to play as sweepers covering long balls hit over our defenders heads, that's what Kelly was doing. Wasn't his fault he got caught out with Halkett losing the ball, I think you're completely wrong blaming him here. It is a flaw in our system, may well be one we can't do anything about keeper positioning wise, because had he stayed further back in his box and the ball gets knocked long he wont be as likely to cover it and will get stick for that too, but we can do something about defenders getting caught on the ball, that's where the fault lies.
  10. Yep it wasn't Kelly's fault, we got caught in possession farting about with the ball and it will happen again if we keep playing like this. Our defence is passing the ball up to the midfield before looking for a long pass up to runners, or Lee Miller, and that means if we lose possession there the defence are all up in a high line leaving opposition strikers a clear path in a straight race to our goal. Halkett looked like he was stuck on what to do with the ball and hesitated for few seconds, giving the Airdrie player the chance to run at him. It's early days though and we've only played 2 pre season games and this Betfred one, the tougher game yesterday prob gives us a better idea on our weaknesses for us to learn from than had we gone 3 up and cruised it. After seeing Kelly for the 2nd goal against QoS I was really worried about him, but yesterday he made a good save from a free kick and did really well with his kicking, the pitch was pretty bobbly and he dealt with every back pass put to him, there was one in particular that bounced awkwardly as a striker chased towards him but he coolly knocked it clear. All in all he was confident and assured dealing with pass backs.

    Good solid start by us, we had a couple of near things on their goal before finally going ahead, then adding a 2nd and we were coasting. Hitting the woodwork 3 times and another couple of saves by their keepers legs saving them it was all one sided. Then we shoot ourselves in the foot losing possession on the halfway mark after pissing about with the ball, Airdrie go straight up and score, that gave them the clichéd lift they needed to give us a game on our hands, they hit the woodwork and we do the same with Robinsons shot off the post. All in all it was a good work out for us, we could've/should've had the game wrapped up but it was maybe more beneficial to us getting the harder game than it would've been winning 4-0. It showed up some flaws in our game, and we will have learnt more from that than had we coasted to an easy win. With Annan beating Hamilton it was a good day for us though, at this stage getting the points and learning something to help us improve is just what we needed.
  12. I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you ltake that post of our strip down now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you … and I will kill you. I've notified the admins to take that down, shocking of you to be putting up our new strip for folk to admire, shame on you LiviLion.
  13. Was thinking that too, not that you'd need an XL size andy , that they're rather tight fitting, i'd have to be at my fighting weight to wear one, which would mean a serious effort to lose 2 stones. Might get away with wearing the black one though, black is a lot more slimming.

    Good prices, cheaper than our game against Airdrie tomorrow.
