  1. Comfortable talbot .... superb

    Not a bad wee ground to watch a game of fitba at?
  2. Auchinleck Talbot v Ayr United televised

    This has to be what Scottish Cup football is all about? Without the risk of genuine upsets the game means nothing. This is the biggest Scottish Cup upset since 1967 when Berwick beat Rangers 1-0. Just hope we get a kind draw tomorrow, an easier tie mebbes like Celtic or Rangers at home.

    Result speaks for itself, as does history....this is the biggest Scottish Cup result since 1967 when Berwick beat Rangers in terms of an upset. This is what it's all about.
  4. Cambuslang Rangers v Talbot

    Two separate points here. 1. The events at Glenafton definitely warrant some form of punishment as the safety of the officials simply can not be seen to be compromised in any way shape or form. 2. Postponing the game against Auchinleck yesterday, if there is no proof of the "flu epidemic" should also warrant punishment. For a club to so flagrantly disregard the needs of both home and travelling fans was really not the best course of action to take, and will surely compound the issue of punishment. I've seen Kello Rovers a number of times this season, and they have had an horrific run of injuries. When I went to see them play at Cumnock in the League Cup, a night match at the start of the season, their club secretary was still signing players trying to put a team on the pitch for the game, up to couple of hours before kick off. The contrast between their actions and that of Cambuslang is huge. One shows respect to their opponents and fans whilst the other totally ignores it.
  5. Whenever Mr Semple plays at Beechwood he likes nothing better than a bit of Bot fan baiting, and I think most fans appreciate his stupidity. Halfway through the first half there was an innocuous challenge on a Glens player near their box, Semple comes rushing out and deliberately gets the Talbot player booked by making repeated studs up kicking motions with his legs in front of the referee. This went on for two or three minutes until the referee succumbed to it all and booked the Talbot player. With his team leading 2-0, Talbot got a penalty (looked soft from where I was but will await the film evidence) As the referee walks away to talk to someone Semple comes out of his goal and starts to rough up the penalty spot by kicking and dragging his foot across it. Stupid sod forgot that the stand side linesman was right next to his left hand post and brought the referee's attention to his misdemeanour and rightly deserved his booking. His gamesmanship though did the trick as Steven Wilson missed the resulting penalty. At half time, Semple comes out a good five minutes before everyone else with someone from the Cumnock coaching staff and gets him to start kicking balls at him in the goalmouth, which is already cutting up due to the ehavy rain the night before and during the match itself. This was very deliberate and he was jumping up and down in the area making the playing surface worse (he has a history of defacing the goal area at this particular end) and had to be told by a Talbot committee man to move elsewhere. This doesn't reflect well either on the new manager's tenure as his coach was fully compliant with what was going on. In the end Cumnock couldn't hold on to a 3-1 lead and Semple was awful between the sticks and conceded three goals in in the last twenty five minutes. I have no issue with any player who wants to have a bit of banter with the home crowd, but when that crosses over into sheer stupidity you have to question his commitment to the club concerned. I think it's fair to say that Semple took quite a few justifiable verbal pelters from the Talbot fans as the game drew to a close.

    Hope Tucker puts this post up on the Talbot changing room wall pre match. There's some genuine wallopers about.

    After last week's dismal failure of a prediction against Hurlford I'd have honestly thought you might have learned something?
  8. Auchinleck Talbot v Ayr United televised

    Ross County came back from 3-1 to snatch a draw at Ayr last weekend, Queen of the South gave them right going over 5-0 earlier in the season. Without going into the merits of the opposition it shows teams are capable of scoring goals against them. When they pumped Dundee United 5-0 away is was on the back of the most attrocious defending you're ever likely to see , and they certainly won't get that kind of space at Beechwood, and our current centre back pairing gathers strength from week to week, and if either gets injured there's a ready made replacement in Ross Harvey who was first choice centre half before his injury a few weeks back. We've conceded just five goals in ten league games, are on a ten match unbeaten run (just one defeat in the last 23 games) and have played seven times already in the Scottish Cup this season. We're capable of pulling off a decent result, no doubt at all about that, and if Ayr can't cope with the Beechwood slope - as Cove Rangers obviously didn't! - who knows? The team have got a massive self belief in themselves and are a very closely knit unit who never know when they're beat, and I reckon out twelfth man will be something else on the day as well. Bring it on. EPPP!
  9. Hurlford v Talbot

    You're now showing your ignorance to be compatible with your other posts. You have absolutely NO idea on how clubs like Hurlford and Auchinleck are approaching club licencing, and you really would be best advised to rein some of your comments in before you make a complete and utter arse of yourself.
  10. Hurlford v Talbot

    I regularly meet a good number of Bankies fans whenever Talbot play them home and away, and have always got on really well with them collectively but there's always one doughnut who proves the exception to the rule. We all know he's no reflection of the club at large.
  11. Hurlford v Talbot

    KB, you have a wonderful capacity to make yourself look incredibly stupid. FFS, you make Hertha look like a Mastermind candidate.

    Hope the weather holds at Hurlford.
  14. Auchinleck Talbot v Ayr United televised

    It would be a sensational day for us even if we draw as it would mean another good crowd in the replay at Somerset and more cash into the Beechwood coffers. Fact is though, we're on the box, we're getting all the publicity so we'll milk it for all it's worth. Ticket allocation 1,700 Talbot 1,400 Ayr. Capacity reduced due to cameras needing various staging get ups around the ground. EPPP.
