  1. Who told you about Carmichael? Thought it was strange how they had his name on the teamsheet last week, your supposed to put trialist unless the player has signed
  2. Thoughts from yesterday’s game; Our best performance of the season (certainly from the games i have been to) Every player that played deserves praise for their performance. Best team on the pitch by a mile, one error at the back cost us another deserved 3 points. Dominated for long periods, it was nice to see us finally get the ball down and pass it, we were playing the ball down the wings & there were some really good interchanges between the full backs and wingers. Deano broke the ball up superbly in the middle all game and Lussaint really ran them ragged through the middle, he has a really good first touch & has good feet for a big guy. Renyard seemed to be playing all along the forward line, he caused their defence problems all day and was really unlucky not to score. Smales had an off day in front of goal but he linked well with Renyard at times, he missed two great chances in both half’s and we really should have been out of site by the time they equalised. Defence all played their part too, Gilly brings plenty of experience, Jack Hunter was immense & young Jack Patrick did really well at RB, Jake Smith had a really good game on the left as well. Thought everyone did their bit and it’s something we can really build on in the coming weeks! Quick mention for Dan Wadge, played his last game for us yesterday and is on his way travelling to Australia this week, good luck mate and thanks for your efforts over the past few years, you’ll be missed! Also can anyone (preferably at the club) shed any light on Dan Carmichael? Included by name last week (not down as a trialist) but knowhere to be seen this week and no mention from the club if he’s signed or not! Be a great addition & a welcome return!
  3. Seeing all these “Team of the Decade” posts on twitter got me thinking who would make our team.........For someone that can remember our original 08 squad there are plenty i can choose from but what does everyone else think? Could do with a few of the strikers of the past at the moment! I’ll post my team at some point this week 😂
  4. This was always going to happen as soon as the previous management team had left. All the players travelling from Manchester, Birmingham etc were never going to stay at the club after Chris's departure. We had some players away last weekend that are still at the club. Dan Wadge i believe is going travelling to OZ in the new year and that was going to happen with or without Chris at the helm. As you say transitional period and i would have faith in Rowan to start bringing players in over the next few games and into the new year. Regardless of how you felt about the previous management team you have to move on, Jon Foley sticking the boot in on social media does not surprise me one bit after what i heard about him at the forum. Good Riddance!
  5. A transitional period for us i sense. Much better scoreline wise, just need a settled team in the coming weeks.
  6. Welcome back? When was he manager before? Exactly!
  7. Brother Grimm has just made an excellent point! Lets not get carried away with ourselves, Rowan has never managed the club before. We all remember the glory years of the previous club but Gretna 2008 are a different club! We worked really hard to shift the "Big time Charlie" tag that followed us into the East of Scotland League and we're certainly not naive to think Rowan is coming into the club to bring league titles and cup wins to the side, that just isn't realistic whatsoever. We need to consolidate our position in the Lowland League first and foremost and build from there. Rowan helped build the old club from the ground up previously but glory years were down to money and that's something at this level we're never likely to have.
  8. Good showing at the fans forum tonight, even though the new gaffer was an hour and a half late 😂 Rowan came across really well, definitely think we have the right man in charge to take us forward (at least for the rest of this season at least) He won’t stand for any shit. Hard work to come but looking forward to it.
  9. Spoke to Nikki last night, 100% not him. Was very unprofessional of the club to not only sack him after the game but to actually word it saying “manager & assistant sacked” I said he would get sacked as i heard a rumour last weekend but i joked yesterday after Chris scored that he’d earned a reprieve. Fans forum on Monday night and new manager will be unveiled. Welcome to Gretna 2008 Rowan Alexander
  10. Yes your correct, the open part at the side (where i stand to watch games now) did have a temporary stand there when the old club were in the SFL. It was taken out either when the club gained promotion to the Spl or when the administrators came in.
  11. As far as i am aware, the stand in the picture is available to use. There was sufficent maintenance done on it during the summer. I don't understand why personally as we're not going to get attendances of any size for us to get any use out of it but there were supporters in it on Saturday against Bonnyrigg and i recall seeing other supporters in it another time.
  12. Floodlights were failing at Burton Albion v Bournemouth last week in the cup! The lights Gretna currently have installed have never failed before last night, the club have had use of them this season already and training takes place twice a week, i know they have been used as i live not far away and can see them from my upstairs window. What happened last night i could not say but i'd expect the fault to be looked at and taken care of.
  13. In all honesty a draw was a fair result today but you boys got the win! But the guys down the far side need to lighten up a bit, one of your supporters punched 2 of my pals today, while some of the early verbals were a bit out of order what followed was a bit of banter, i'll be at the reverse fixture, hopefully won't be scenes like there was today!
  14. There is a pitch inspection at 9:30 in the morning, i have my doubts the game will be on with all the rain we’ had down here the last few days but fingers crossed!
  15. It's not the lower leagues in Scotland that need to address their Promotion/Relegation issues its Scottish League Two that needs sorted! 1 team down but thats only if they lose a 2 legged playoff against the winner of the Highland/Lowland league champions! The bottom team in the League Two should be relegated with the winner of the other tie going straight up. There is far too much protection for SLFL teams imo.
