  1. Some eejit decided to try and overtake us as two lanes merged down to one..not enough room...clipped the side of the bus...got flipped round so that the bus was actually pushing him along sideways...before flipping him again into a big ditch at the side if the road. No one injured but driver pretty shaken up Just on Fife side of the kincardine bridge
  2. An extremely poor day at the office. Need to move on now to a big game next week. Reading some of the comments from pars fans....they are saying they have been threatening to turn their chances into goals for a while now....unfortunately for us, they decided to do it against us Quite clear from the highlights that we defended poorly as a team...both the midfield and defence didn't cover themselves in glory for the majority of the goals, so to pick out individuals is not helpful. This is the same defence that has actually been pretty damage good all season....do the same players not get praise where we defended well? Let's move on and use this to ensure we get all three points next week Interesting also to see headbutt gate omitted from the highlights. I think the majority of fans who were there yesterday saw exactly what happened. This plus the bus yesterday shows there's never a dull moment being a Sons fan
  3. He definitely headbutted Carswell who immediately signalled to be subbed...don't know if he was injured or didn't want to play on That said...we've improved since Stanton came on
  4. Good point....perhaps an option would be two levels of membership? Silver and gold...with the gold maybe £20 and with current benefits, while the silver would have slightly reduced?
  5. To be fair...pretty much the whole of Dumbarton is underwater just now
  6. Is Hippolyte any good for you guys? I've seen him quite a few times for you and Livingston, and can honestly say I've never been impressed
  7. Hopefully we'll get a reaction from the players after yesterday's disappointment. Arguably losing to Bonnyrigg was the best thing to happen to us this season
  8. It was a horrendous attempt at a tackle...totally stupid...deserved red card
  9. I think its the government trying to force the hand of the football authorities to deal with issues like sectarianism....their preference is for clubs to accept strict liability....I get why the old firm don't want it...but surely it's a win win for everyone else?
  10. Horrendous decision by Northcroft....pretty much the most blatant foul you'll see all season
  11. i think this flags up the problem with the current rules....defenders have to clear the ball..they cannot assume the ref or linesman will actually give an offside decision....I would suggest that any defender who has to rush into a clearance in this type of situation is surely being affected by the presence of the opposition player...who is therefore interfering with play
  12. Just on the crowd want....I would have to say...the crowd yesterday looked a lot more than 2,000
  13. Why would the referee face sanctions? He's had to make a split second decision...the position meant neither linesman had a decent view What should happen is that the morton player should be punished and banned....if we are serious about stamping out cheating....cheats have to be punished and publicly shamed
  14. He may well have been good this season, but he did not look anything like a footballer yesterday
  15. I think the ref now has some discretion in the event of a penalty There looked to.be contact, but it looked to.me as though Stirling got himself behind the ayr player and felt he needed some kind of challenge....it didn't look to be a professional foul
  16. He was consistent with first bookings for both teams...both seemed a little harsh, especially when an Ayr player got away without even being spoken too for hacking down Stirling from behind in the second half Definitely a penalty, but the red card seemed a little harsh
  17. I would agree....we didnt offer much in the 1st half, but the timing of the goal was perfect 2nd half was much better, and other than the final couple of minutes, falkirk didn't really test Alan Martin Not quite sure what's changed since Bonnyrigg....perhaps a reaction to that defeat? We have struggled in last couple of years against lower league opposition
  18. A fantastic three points today I was just saying that Robert Thomson had mistimed every jump for a header up until just before half time....but what a time to get it right Second half we seemed to have more belief....and big Thommo was fantastic....his confidence was self evident and well worthy of his MOTM award Some great performances out there this afternoon....Barr, Buchanan, Stanton were fantastic No idea what's happened to Falkirk this season, but a shadow of last year....plenty of possession, but toothless up front. Miller looks done and Baird ineffective Referee was just bizarre at times....that goal kick he gave when everyone else in the ground could see it was a corner Delighted with the three points
  19. This is assuming Aitken is saying the same things in the dressing room....he wouldn't be the first manager to privately say the complete opposite to his players
  20. Except there are a fair amount of shout happy rabble rousers against the proposal.....to be fair most of the opposition on here is measured and thoughtful Personally, I take very little interest in the comings and goings of the board of directors....they generally seem very remote from our club....or indeed most businesses, but I would guess the current lot did take us out of Rankine's sticky mits? I fully accept that from a supporters point of view, there appears no real need to relocate, and indeed staying in the east end of town, it will actually be inconvenient for me personally One of the questions I will be interested in hearing an answer to though, is who will get the income from the new training pitches. I would guess if the club , rather than Brabco, were to be able to invest the profits in the team, this is surely beneficial All I really want is for the proposals to get fair and genuine scrutiny , rather than the current daily record response from some
  21. I'm not quite sure what relevance a former director being disqualified from being a director has on the new stadium proposals I have an open mind on the plans.....they look good.....no major surprise there, and I do have questions needing answered regarding financial implications for the team, not temporary ground sharing etc It does seem to me however that a lot of people have already decided that this is bad and just want to heckle the board members If the answers are not forthcoming, then fair enough, but let's at least hear what they have to say It would be interesting to know if the main opponents were also against moving from Boghead
  22. That implies he is no longer championship level....IMHO he will not be the solution to our striking issues
  23. It looked to me that Aitken was keen to keep the 4 4 2 formation, which is why Fleming came on for Thomson, and Stirling for McCallum I do agree though that Stevenson looked out on his feet...not too surprising given his recent lack of action. Same also applies to Donald who lasted much better than I was expecting
  24. A much improved performance from us I hope Aitken sticks with the 4 4 2. I feel this allows us to play further up the park, and prevent every game being a backs to the wall performance. Only down side to this might be the personnel. I'm not convinced that Thomson and McCallum have a lot of goals in them Defensively, we played well.....hopefully that puts to bed the Barr and Buchanan can't play together argument. Smith is now looking like a footballer....an amazing turnaround from earlier in the season. Perhaps not Harvie's best performance, but he is young and will learn What I was most pleased about was that we moved the ball around much quicker and effectively More performances like this, and hopefully we can avoid relegation
