  1. There was a guy warming up with Beany before the game...he sat in the stand and watched the game No idea who he is but rumoured to be signing this week Looked like a defender
  2. It would need to be club legends rather than guys who played ten times over two seasons I'm thinking of guys like Craig Brittain, Paddy Flannery (recent fb posts aside), Andy Brown...
  3. There's no doubt that refs and linesmen aren't that great, but I remember from the season we won the league...when you're winning games the bad decisions aren't critical...if you're 3-0 up...not getting a corner or a poor offside decision makes no difference When you're fighting for every single point...they are much more noticeable
  4. Probably a draw was a fair result I thought Airdrie had the better of the first half. Definitely want to see their first goal again...looked offside for the shot Adam saved Fantastic effort from Barr for the equaliser and we were in the ascendancy after that, then Airdrie scored against the run of play. Fine goal though from Thomas Perhaps the argument shouldn't be can Hutton and Carswell play together...it should be can Forbes and Hutton play together. Both very slow and static which allowed Airdrie to control the midfield Good performances again from Ballantyne, Thomas, Adam an Barr
  5. It's a great idea but maybe would have been better to try avoiding the cheaper hospitality day? I would imagine quite a lot of the people going will be season ticket holders, so perhaps limiting the take up for this particular game?
  6. Much better performance...can we only play well at home? Thomas clearly man of the match, but no failures Brechin were dreadful...numbers 6 and 17 especially We so need to keep Thomas after January
  7. From our end of the park it didn't look like there was any contact...it looked like as he turned he slipped...fairly half hearted penalty claims from only the striker and one other player When did Grant Gallagher turn into such a bellend?? Seemed to take great delight in.fouling our players in front of our fans and very lucky to stay on the park. He was never a major target for the fans as he spent most of his time with us on the treatment table...I would have said we all wished him well, but came across yesterday as an utter fanny...compare that to Bryan Prunty...total professional and legend
  8. Totally agree with you about Paton...don't think he's not interested...he just looks unfit and done at this level I actually thought Hutton looked ok yesterday, while the few chances we made cane through Barr
  9. A bit like our proposed stadium at Dalmoak...
  10. He was on the bench..but only as extra pair of eyes to help out Durrant and Ewings He's not fit
  11. I wonder if the board are being cautious about getting rid of Stevie because they don't want a reputation for being trigger happy. This could clearly affect our ability to attract a good quality manager Perhaps this is why they are not rushing in to sack him just now during what is clearly an injury crisis
  12. Shambolic....who on earth decided after winning the toss...with a makeshift defence to play against the wind??? If it was Dowie's decision, I'd strip the captaincy from him right now On the back foot immediately...only took 24 seconds to rip us apart Only two who looked like they even cared were Thomson and Allardice, though Russell did well when he came on I don't think Aitken can recover from this. I would like to think he'd walk given he knows the financial position we're in
  13. The new guys are cup tied next week or at least a couple of them
  14. there was a rumour floating around before the Arbroath game that we were planning on shipping out both Loy and Forbes....
  15. Referee was awful for both teams I thought a point apiece was a fair result...according to the BBC...They had one shot on target in the game...and it was straight at Adam who has to save it We actually should have scored more but happy enough with a point due to the lateness of the equaliser I thought Arbroath were very streetwise....made fouls at the right time..clearly targeted Bobby Barr as a potential hot head and tag teamed on him trying to wind him up
  16. I would go through Glasgow if any of your passengers get car sick....not a great road...pretty bendy
  17. Question...did Andy Goram grow taller when he played for Rangers (RIP) and Scotland?
  18. I don't think he's as good as Ralston..solid player, but can have a heavy first touch, and has spent a fair bit of time injured I would say he's a championship level player, but perhaps not good enough for the top league Would happily take him back though
  19. My view of the ties...the better team won Arbroath are a tough physical side that caused us problems...but apart from the goal we gifted them...didn't actually look like scoring today Andy Stirling...not his best game, but Arbroath seemed to have learned after Wednesday and were doubling up on him...but what a pass near the end for Burt...dont know how he missed it My MOTM...Danny Handling...thought he was superb today
  20. To be fair, over the last few seasons we've signed players with injury problems who were unlikely to have signed for us if they'd stayed injury free....and more importantly most remained injury free It seems however our luck ran out this season, and I would guess some of the guys have played through niggling injuries to make up the numbers
  21. Good to see the BBC's quality journalism Darren Barr scored twice as Dumbarton dented Dundee United's Championship play-off hopes with only their seventh league win of the season. More to follow.
