  1. Great result and battling performance yesterday after being down to 10 men for almost the whole game. Kudos too to Findlay for changing things up and getting a couple of wins on the back of last week's horror show. I think next week will be a better test and a bigger indication of where we are and how we'll do this season.
  2. Stenny Versus Airdrieonians

    And it was at this moment the Stenny jinx was broken. God bless Davie Hutton. Really encouraging to win after being down to 10 men for most of the game. That sort of battling performance is exactly what we want and need. Hopefully, we can push on from here now. That was some strike for Conroy's second after some good footwork from Victoria. I doubted the signings of Conroy and Victoria but they've really impressed so far. Apparently, Duffy went over his ankle (as had Wilkie in training this week) so he shouldn't be out for long or at all, I would think. Hopefully, both of them and Millar will be back in the squad next week.
  3. This. This. This. Very well put DaF. I have nothing against O'Neil but he blows too hot and cold for me and unfortunately, and more often than not he's cold. And regardless Robertson is a better player anyway. I like S McIntosh as a player and probably rate him more highly than other supporters but again I'm not sure who he should play in front of in any position he plays. Good squad player and option though. Besides, I would imagine our youth development in terms of playing youth players in the first team is probably actually quite good in comparison with other teams at this level. Although it hasn't produced much success at first-team level (a hint that we shouldn't just play youth players for the sake of it).
  4. Stenny Versus Airdrieonians

    I agree and this was a problem last season too. Now last season, we were guff and had a makeshift team so fair enough. But this season Findlay has been able to sign the squad he wants and did so early in pre-season so there's really no excuse. Can't add anything more really to what's been said. Big game for the management team and squad already. Good result on Tuesday but the response to last Saturday isn't over yet. We need to get a win this weekend. Would imagine we will go for the same team as Tuesday but would like to see Millar back in, if fit, and would start Duffy too alongside Carrick and Victoria with McIntosh coming off the bench to make an impact if needed. Duffy is our player most likely to score as long as chances are created for him. Stenny have been a right bogey team for us the last few years. Would take a scrappy 1-0 OG off the defender's arse win. Also please shout lots of abuse at Kevin O'Hara for me please.

    How's Adam Brown been getting on so far?
  6. It said on the website he was meant to be okay for Saturday but I assume he must have picked up another niggle or isn't quite there yet after all. You're right though think he will definitely make a difference when he's back.
  7. Stenny have been a right bogey team for us the last few years. Bodied us 5-0 and I remember a few last minute winners and equalisers too. All totally dismal games too, particularly the 1-0 defeat around Christmas/New Year during EWB's reign.
  8. I'm just looking forward to next week when after we win we'll be the hottest thing since slice bread again.
  9. The Albion Rovers Thread

    Was just going to ask something similar. Baffles me that seemingly Ian Murray can be interviewed about the job but it's given to John Brogan unless Murray said thanks but no thanks for whatever reason.
  10. Airdrieonians V Montrose

    TBF Ayr got beat by an Airdrie team worse than Montrose last season and still won the league so there's hope yet.
  11. I wasn't there but Wilkie plays better in the middle of the park than he does out wide. It's shame that Edwards has struggled the last couple of games as I think he is a cracking player but by the sounds of things he's been hung out to dry a little. He and the team play much better when he and MacDonald are both playing. I think Gallagher is good at doing the basics but there's not much flair there at all. I'm hopeful Millar will be back in for the next game presumably in place of Wilkie. The official website seemed to say he was available for selection yesterday but I assume he must have failed a late fitness test or something along those lines. Doesn't seem like Scott is fully fit or up to speed yet. Will be interesting to see the team and what changes are made on Tuesday and Saturday. It seemed last season Findlay didn't know what his best team was. The one he's opted for so far this season isn't working as hoped. Here's hoping he can work out what our best team is soon.
  12. Thankfully missed the game but a terrible result. And such a shame, but typical of Airdrie, to have played so poorly in front of new and lapsed fans. It seems like the starting team and/or formation isn't working. We're defensively solid enough but struggling to create anything going forward. As I said, a terrible result but hopefully one that the management team and squad can learn and improve from in terms of team selection, personnel and tactics. IMO some of the reactions have been a little OTT (it's only the second game of the season and there is plenty of time for things to get better) but it's a big test of the manager already. If he is truly capable of managing this football club and taking us to the next level he needs to change and improve things. I hope both the management team and squad are up to it...

    Patrick is a very hard working young striker or just off the striker. His attitude and hard work earned him a contract so entirely down to him to keep working hard and take the next step. By all accounts he's done very well and already been asked to train with the first team. He's a Kirkwood boy too so very local Nice one thanks JC. Let's hope he does well

    I see that we have signed Patrick Pyott to our reserve team. Obviously not a signing with the first team in mind, and so perhaps inconsequential, but I am a bit of anorak when it comes to this sort of thing so what sort of player is he? Do you think he would be capable of stepping up to the first team? Just a jersey filler? Thanks
