  1. Not really. I heard we had the basis of a team in place and they were pretty confident about next season. But no names. I thought by now we would have heard a few announcements. With absolutely no inside knowledge, just going by interviews I think it sounds like Murray, Fordyce and McCabbe will be here next season. You can sometimes read between the lines with end of season interviews where players are a bit non committal and get the feeling they're leaving their options open. But to me they 3 don't come across like that. They sound like they are planning for next season with us.
  2. I was chatting to him briefly before the East Fife match. That was the impression I got as well. Spoke very positively about how they were building something and plans were well underway for next season no matter what division we were in. Also felt the standard of player approaching Airdrie to sign had greatly increased. I know he has some critics & the obvious run-ins with the Trust but from my personal dealings with him I've always been impressed. He wants things done right. If it's not, you're gone. And while previous regimes were happy to just survive, he won't be happy unless we're progressing and moving upwards.
  3. To be fair it's only two people. With the majority of others pointing out how ridiculous they're being.
  4. I think Kerr will be gone. Apparently he has been quite dissapointed with his lack of game time since coming back from injury. I feel sorry for Luke Lyons as I thought he has looked a decent when he has played. He’s not one of these players with a recurring muscle/tissue injury that keeps flaring up. He just seems really unlucky and pickups random injuries. With us a broken collar bone and then a fractured bone from sliding into the post. I think there is a player there but it would be a massive gamble keeping him.
  5. I think the goal of the season should be the one up at East Fife when we passed the ball about for ages and it’s not even in the short list.
  6. The West Ham stuff was true. We were due to sign Sean Adarkwa on loan. West Ham failed to sign a couple of their targets for the first team. Which meant they had to promote forwards from different age groups and so West Ham cancelled the deal. They then offered us another player (can't remember his name) Airdrie agreed only for the players agent to put a stop to the deal as he wanted his client to go on loan to a local club. That all came from one of our directors.
  7. Airdrie always blow it in the playoffs. Hibs, Ayr United, Stirling Albion, Dumbarton, Brechin, Alloa, Clyde & Morton.
  8. I've not really looked attendances for a long time, so didn’t realise just how bad our crowds had got.
  9. Yeah, sounds class. Although I'm not sure I could keep up with Spangles boozing for that length of trip. lol
  10. Quality. Great group of lads. I've tagged along a couple of their trips to Dusseldorf & Newcastle. Great laugh.
  11. There had been a few rumours that Airdrie were close to signing someone on loan from Celtic. Then the following Saturday (Falkirk game I think?) some pics done the rounds of Moffat in hospitality.
  12. Stream eventually worked at half time. Felt the 2nd half we were the better team. Although they caused us big problems from crosses. If only we had a prolific forward. I think this season will go down as a "what if" Salim had been fit.
  13. We can't afford to lose anymore ground so the pressure is really on us for Saturday If Fyvie, Megason & McAllister could all pick up wee niggly injuries that would be a big help. lol
  14. Just watching the full highlights I notice it's Gabby McGill doing the co-commentary. For anyone watching the full game, did he give an update on his injury?
  15. Great movement from Gallagher to lose his marker for the 3rd but what on earth is their keeper doing.
  16. Not sure. Was a bit of a fleeting conversation on route to the toilet on Saturday. To be honest, at first I thought he was on the wind up when he mentioned us offering money but he was pretty adamant. There are a lot of rumours floating about comings and goings so I'd certainly hope we'd be getting some other bodies in.
  17. From what I understand Airdrie are pulling out all the stops to keep McInroy. Whether it's a loan or trying to sign him. I heard we've even offered Celtic money to sign him (when was the last time we paid money for a player?).
  18. With the controversy that follows us, heads would explode if we signed him. My ex's brother and mates were witnesses. So my opinion on him is shaped by what they had to say about the court case...etc. As such I personally wouldn't have any problems signing him. However I think I'd be in a minority. If we did sign him I'd imagine there would be a lot of Airdrie fans as pissed off as the Falkirk support and the unusual good will shown to our team could go right out the window.
  19. Does anybody know how the Airdrie fan who fell at half time is getting on? Looked a real sore one.
  20. That was 1924 members. Public sale of any remaining tickets was 1pm.
  21. Rumour mill seems to be in full flow but I haven’t heard anything about that deal. So far: We're signing a full back from Hearts. Then someone else said the deal doesn't look like happening anymore. Another loanee coming from Celtic. We’d approached Thistle about getting Kyle Turner back but they’re not keen to let him go. Gabby McGill’s injury isn’t as bad as first thought and he is hopeful of being back sooner than we all feared.
