  1. Lovely big Binos badge on every one. Quality. Who would want toilet roll with the crap already on it?
  2. Without doubt the 4-0 Challenge Cup final loss to Livingston. One of the best pre-match parties ever followed by one of the most gutless and pathetic performances I've ever witnessed in almost 40 years of following Alloa. Wouldn't have been as bad had it been a poor Alloa squad, but they had been together for 3 or 4 years and been successful for most of it. Kinda signalled the end of the squad and brought us the disaster that was Danny Lennon 's signing policy.
  3. Morton ruined him. He was absolutely outstanding in a rank rotten Alloa team when they signed him. Pretty much man of the match most weeks and scoring spectacular goals for fun from central midfield. Jim McInally decided not to play him there and he's never looked anywhere near as good since.
  4. He was more like Armand Tonne after we signed him. Whilst not the heaviest, Harry "the horse" Erwin and Stuart Romaines were a few pies over their target weight.
  5. I wouldn't hold any great hope of the club honouring it Owen, Mike had no interest when it was the tenth anniversary. I don't think there will ever be another final to natch that one. My voice was gone by the end of it.
  6. Have to agree with that. I only got to 7 or 8 games last season but for the most part it was like watching paint dry at home. Very few goals scored and mainly relying on set pieces.
  7. It's only a fiver to get into the cinema in Stirling nowadays. 😉 There's no real point in moaning about the cup pricing at the Recs as it won't change. Though these games are just glorified friendlies at this time of the season.
  8. Probably the same folk that burned their other scarf when Maurice Johnston signed for Rangers. Not the usual type of Mulraney appointment but here's hoping he's picked well again. That and he has 5 or 6 players lined up to give the squad depth and competition for places.
  9. More than Hartley and Goodwin though. Also played at a good level and galvanised a truly honking Wee Rovers last season. Whether he is on Mike's list is anyone's guess, but a better choice than a few of the names suggested.
  10. He's still not proved himself in that aspect of management. His signing record with Alloa was average at best with a large number of squad fillers. The current team is still 2/3rd's the great Jack Ross ' s signings. Wish him all the best, but nowhere near as good as Ross and Hendrie when you pinched them from us.
  11. 1. Hartley - took over a relegated team with only one injured player on the books and everything after that was magic. 2. Ross - if only we had him longer. Inherited Lennon 's mess and in one summer built a great team that set the club record for wins and remain the bulk of the current team. 3. Goodwin - good coach that has improved season on season. However his signing record isn't the best, so interesting how he does at St Mirren as he isn't inheriting a great squad. 4. Smith - well he did manage the Sevco and Hibs wins. Apart from that he was rubbish. 5. Lennon - signed a squad that almost matched Pat McAulay 's in 1995.
  12. And won the first 10 matches of the season with a squad that had been assembled over the summer. Ross and Hartley were fantastic team builders.
