  1. For the first time in my long supporting life I honestly believe the ref had it in for the opposition from start from finish. Some of the bookings were hardly fouls and the penalty.............................
  2. I see your keeper was a trialist- he was man of the match are far as I was concerned. 3 or 4 tremendous saves kept the score down to a respectable figure. Should sign him now!
  3. Crazy game today! Second half City overran Strathspey and had it not been for an incredible series of saves from their keeper it could have been 12. Penalty miss annoying but thankfully not crucial although big chance to close down Fraserburgh goal difference wasted. All credit to Strath who kept trying to the final whistle. Nerves in tatters at 3.05pm.
  4. To be fair we did exit from our end but on entering the ground we were told by the steward to go the way I have described. As far as segregation the Morton supporters didn’t mingle the way we Brechiners do with yourselves. Good luck for the rest of the season
  5. Went to this game with a Morton supporting mate. Wanted to sit in the visitors part of the main stand and was amazed to find that we had to go to the top of the steps in the ‘home’ side, make our way through the occupied top rows in the middle of the stand to get to the far end. Genius planning by the Montrose powers that be! When the announcer welcomed the Mo onto the pitch my Morton pal correctly commented that it was a shame the announcer couldn’t speak English! Didn’t understand a word. Unique day though - Morton through to next round then up to see the City second half ( another win) then watched Scotland’s great win over Israel.
  6. Can anybody confirm tomorrow’s kick off time? BBC says 3pm!!!!
  7. And once again he reveals his true colours (not red,)
  8. I didn’t know that is how the system works - can there be someone operating it instead? The slow movement was pretty annoying. Agree that we didn’t look too bad just need a cutting edge.
  9. One small point. Whilst nobody puts much store in the BBC stats they do say City had 55% possession. Doesn’t fit with your “far less of the ball”!
  10. Great performance today - not a failure in the side. The work rate was fantastic typified by Olly Hamilton. He never stopped running and his second goal finished off a great move brilliantly. Fully deserved his man of the match. Referee spoiled the last 5 minutes with his meltdown - totally inept after a reasonable performance for 85 minutes. Well done City - keep it up.
  11. No - we expect a blatent trip in the box to be a penalty or being brought down in the edge of the box to be a free kick. Also it was disheartening to see the guy running the show for Stirling to be allowed to foul continually without being penalised. But again a good game with neither team looking like relegation fodder.
  12. Kinda proves my point about the ref if Stirling fans thought he was ok!
  13. From a neutrals point of view a really entertaining game with neither side looking like bottom of the league candidates. From a City point of view we were badly treated by a one sided ref today. Albion’s number 8 was allowed to foul nonstop without punishment and a number of blatent fouls were not given to us - especially the trip on Hill in the penalty area in the first half and then on Ngoy in the second. Having said all that by full time we were hanging on for a point. We’ll play much worse and win.
  14. If Elgin had had their shooting boots on we could have been a couple down at half time but as the game went on we looked stronger and stronger. Both keepers had crucial saves and again Paul McManus worked his socks off. Definite signs of improvement and excellent application. I just wish Duggie Hill would stop conceding free kicks on the edge of the box. Only 3 points off promotion pay off place!
