  1. Time will tell who wins out of this, Darvel will have paid a significant fee for a player who hasn’t been a regular starter for Talbot this season. The reasons for not starting regularly are unknown but think Talbot will need to move on. I question the timing if he was unsettled I thought the summer might have been the time for it. Tucker will need to move quick though as think Talbot are a few players short at the moment. I don’t think it’s been a secret that Darvel have been desperate to sign a Talbot player to make a statement, I’m disappointed to have lost Jamie Glasgow but things happen in football. With Darvel having as many players now they should have enough to see the season out and play all the competitions that they have entered.
  2. What’s a bit weird is a good player in his prime asking for a transfer, we should be building a squad not losing good players
  3. It’s far more than 8 seasons to be honest, but this is concerning if he leaves the club without plans to replace him. We have lost loads of goals in the past few seasons with the loss of Pee Wee and even Pooe who popped up with goals from full back. Tucker has been an expert in the past in deciding when to let a player go but Jamie is only 28 and is in his prime. Boys like Mason and Taylor have great potential but the club needs to keep players like this.
  4. To be fair the level of Talbots performances have dropped and any league wins are just scraping past teams. I don’t recall the last time we had a negative goal difference, which tells me we are not scoring enough goals. Improvement is required which the manager and players will recognise.
  5. Family matter I heard. Cheers hopefully everything ok
  6. Any idea why no Wardope today for Talbot? Thought he may have started.
  7. Did you go to the AGM and take your opportunity to ask questions directly to the manager?
  8. He played just about every game of the season and never improved so its fair comment. That’s where we differ as I seen improvement as the season going on filling big boots Pope left behind.
  9. Targeting young individual players out of order in my opinion
  10. Will your club ever get near to the bed to be able to shit it?
  11. He is 20 year old with most of a season under his belt, now good competition for places with Crawford, and hopefully a new left back to compete with Wilson, Stafford also able to play cb so good cover as you won’t sign one that would put our other 2 out the team as they are the best at what they do at our level imho. Think we need to get behind some of these boys and be more encouraging remembering they are just starting out in the game.
  12. Well done today Talbot, been a long hard season for our boys back from a season out. We have no right to win any game, two massive games to come
  13. I want my club to naturally find its place in the new pyramid structure. Think going into the SPFL would be exciting however this should have more radical and the lowland league should have immediately have been set up to incorporate the licensed clubs to give a realistic chance of quicker progression, the current promotion and relegation bottle neck and the guest clubs scenario have turned it into a farce.
  14. Some Talbot fans have been called trolls for being critical, I don’t think they are, I think they are loyal fans who pay their money and are entitled to their opinion. My only observation is their is a far larger presence on threads after a defeat than a good victory and this tells me one thing. We have been spoiled repeatedly after consistently successful seasons, there is lots of supporters who expect to win every game, every trophy playing good football but in reality it doesn’t work like that. I spoke to some Talbot fans at the beginning of March who predicted there was no way we had the depth of squad to win the league, they rightly base that on evidence of previous campaigns when the 3/4 games a week start we drop points. Think there is a few things at play here Talbot usually run a squad of about 18, that’s the budget obviously, when we are in the winter and 1 game a week we are fairly settled on the park but usually means some players are not getting game time which tells at this stage of the season. If the manager rotates early on and we drop points the team selection would be criticised as perceived better players are not playing to keep everyone match fit. Fair credit to Darvel they have been free scoring at the business end and look as if they will get over the line to the play offs. I think some other things need to be put into perspective a 20 team league of 38 games after the team took a year out was a big ask to play at the top of their game at all times, I think we have seen that playing out in some games. You have clubs now struggling to put a team on the park, using youths and even trialists at this stage of the season which for me shows the 20 team league on top of cups was a big ask and we need to cut the club some slack over that and pull together to try and get some silverware which I think is still a good return for the first season back after a year out.
  15. So do I doesn’t mean I’m not interested. He is a volunteer who I’m grateful for his highlights. Don’t know why you would target him.
  16. I asked the question and you provided an answer, which makes sense and appreciated. I just don’t think other clubs should be mentioned privately or publicly to clubs and it should be the decision of the club themselves if the wish to make their transfer business public. This type of thing can unsettle players and squads at this stage of a season. I’m maybe old fashioned when it comes to these values and not a fan of it.
  17. Why would the Darvel manager know Pollok or Talbot’s business and who they speak to?
  18. Leave the backward junior set up and it will all be ok was the shout
  19. Great result can see why lots of good fans don’t read or listen to this forum
  20. The Pollok result was massive but feel that yesterday could be really big when the prizes are given out at the end of the season. Good to see Shankland back, need to get him fit as massive games coming up. Would like to see us sign a couple of good players to get us through the season. Midfielder and another defender for the squad.
  21. You’ve got to allow for some inconsistency with young players, also don’t go for slating any Talbot player in public.
