  1. 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
  2. The new guys are cup tied next week or at least a couple of them
  3. there was a rumour floating around before the Arbroath game that we were planning on shipping out both Loy and Forbes....
  4. 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
  5. I would go through Glasgow if any of your passengers get car sick....not a great road...pretty bendy
  6. Question...did Andy Goram grow taller when he played for Rangers (RIP) and Scotland?
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Presumably these Dumbarton councillors did vote to build your new pitch though...
  12. I did however see it quoted that the majority of councillors who voted against the development were from Clydebank....my experience of Bankie councillors is they are not the slightest bit interested in anything that happens in Dumbarton
  13. Interestingly there's not a lot of shouts for a penalty from our players...then again perhaps because Barr is constantly being penalised in the box?
  14. No idea...that was the best we've played in ages, but the goals are hard to come by just now Terrible penalty miss by Nisbet, but I thought he had a decent game apart from that....I hate to see players arguing over who takes the penalty...its almost like their effort goes into making sure they get to take it...the amount of times they're missed [emoji35] [emoji35] [emoji35] I thought the ref was quite decent up until denying us a second penalty...horrendous decision...it was more of a penalty than the first one Disappointed with the result, but pleased to see more balance in the team and a better performance
  15. We came out the traps last night and definitely had Morton on the ropes early doors Looking back we needed to score during that spell to have something to defend...poor miss from Froxy, but it looked more like it came off him rather than him putting it over the bar After that Morton got themselves into the game without really testing Gallagher Poor goal for us to lose, and we didn't really look like getting an equaliser Some of the guys looked out on their feet by the end of their game I thought Stirling and Stewart both looked good and give me more hope for the rest of the season
  16. I had a feeling all BBC content was only available in UK and Ireland [emoji22][emoji22][emoji22]
  17. Flights and accommodation already booked...nobody tell me the score so I can watch it "live" when I get home [emoji34] [emoji17]
  18. Delighted we've made the final...absolutely gutted that I can't make the game as I'm in Japan visiting my daughter Someone please tell me I can get BBC Alba there???
  19. Delighted with Andy Stirling coming back...we've clearly been struggling to create chances, and if he can recreate the form that got him his move to Queens it will be brilliant. Some games last season he was unbelievable
  20. Better team won...not a huge amount in it in the first half, but st mirren stepped up in the second, and we had no answer A lot of our own fans beating ourselves up...we just lost to the best team in the league and the likely champions For me...our best players were Dowie and Nade in the first half I thought the ref missed all the big decisions...how he and the linesman missed McGinns kick out I dont know. I thought Carswell could have had a red fir his challenge, but Stellios was embarrassing
  21. Kind of a pity the last time we visited your stadium it took them 45 minutes to get us in due to your shambolic new ticketing system
  22. is it the case that you're spending a large proportion of your budget on Dobbie, which is affecting the manager's options in bringing other players in?
