  1. Forfar Athletic 2018-19

    From a Mo perspective Easton was the only Forfar player who caused us any problems up top. That said, I can see why he splits opinions. Nothing much seems to come from his efforts and by Christ he loves a dive/whinge. My impression is that he’s a luxury player that would look great in a good team .. a bit like McKay-Steven.
  2. Montrose v Forfar

    What a difference a week makes. SP got the team selection spot on this time. Put three battlers into the middle of the park with a target man up top with CJ to get behind the back four. Forfar looked good for the first 15mins but after we scored (a howler of a mistake from the Forfar defender .. but it still had to be put away .. and CJ missed arguably an easier 1 on 1 in the last game at Forfar) they looked pretty clueless upfront. I particularly enjoyed the last 10 mins of the first half where we sat back and said “go on break us down” .. they couldn’t. Second half we were by far the better side .. adopting the same approach and could’ve been one or two further ahead before the penalty. As for the “anti-football” pish from some of the Forfar folks. Precisely what do you expect from an opponent? Make it easy for you? No, we don’t play that way every week but SP clearly set out a game plan today and Forfar were second best as a result.
  3. Stenny v Mo

    A very fair summary of what happened today. Think we went into the game trying not to lose and ultimately paid the price. Hopefully, a lesson learned for us. Cook’s tackle was horrendous and a red all day long. Stenny look much more resilient than in previous meetings. If they can grind out some more results they might be able to escape the drop. As for us, maybe just do what we’re good at and stop overthinking the tactics. Win 5-2 and then completely change the front line?
  4. As a complete neutral on this I thought Rangers were by far the better side in the first half. Both penalties were spot on. Both sendings off were probably right. Although if I got someone deliberately stamping on my balls I’d kick out as well. The McGregor kick at Ferguson was a penalty all day long and probably a red card as well.
  5. Montrose v Brechin

    Believe me I’ve seen much worse [emoji15][emoji15]
  6. Montrose v Brechin

    In his defence he did see the best of it .. if you’re a Brechin supporter .. probably better in the pub than watching what followed. Was possibly the slowest pitch invasion in history
  7. Come On Ye Mo - Montrose FC 2018/19

    He’s been a bit up and down. Couldn’t get in the side in the first quarter. Played well for a few weeks in Nov/Dec when we went with 3 upfront but got hooked at halftime on Saturday. The boy has potential and a good turn of pace. Very much a work in progress. Which I guess is why he’s staying around for the rest of the season.
  8. Montrose v Annan (a drama in two acts)

    For fkks sake .. only Montrose
  9. Montrose v Stinlar

    Disappointed with the final result. We deserved to win the game but couldn’t see it out. Thought Martin Rennie had his best game in a long time and took his goal brilliantly. Hopefully he’s found his feet at this level. The equaliser was a shambles. Jordan flapped at a corner and the stramash that followed ended inevitably with Hamill bundling it in. I think Jordan is our best keeper but he wasn’t at it today.
  10. Montrose vs Dumbarton

    That was much more like it from Montrose. Last seasons success was largely built on a defence as tight as a ducks arse and today was the first time this season we’ve delivered it. Matty and Dillo were the best players on the park. Jordan commanded his box and made a crucial save at 0-0. Webby’s goal was very well taken .. and Steeves’s run and cross brilliant. Hopefully, onwards and upwards and bust the Smokies unbeaten run next week. One question for the Dumbarton supporters. What have you done to Cammy? At his best he’s too good for this league but today he looked well off it. Have him back in a heartbeat though.
  11. Brechin v Mo

    Well done the Mo, SP and Martin Rennie. Fingers crossed that’s a corner turned and we can kick on. There’s not much between the teams in this league.
  12. Come On Ye Mo - Montrose FC 2018/19

    We desperately need an experienced centre forward who can hold the ball up and allow the midfield to get up in support. Easy to say but not so easy to find. Is it a lack of finance or location that is the problem? Add that to us being punished for defensive mistakes .. which we got away with last season .. and I fear we’re in for a long hard battle to avoid the bottom two slots. Frustrating thing is that we’re not far away. As Moforever said, had we been a bit more clinical at both ends we could’ve won all the league games other than the one against the Smokies.
  13. Dumbarton -vs- Montrose. Double Header

    Cammy is a class act .. still gutted you nicked him.
  14. Dumbarton -vs- Montrose. Double Header

    It’s a difficult one to answer as SP tends to adopt a squad approach and mixes and matches depending on who we’re playing). The only definite starters (when everyone is fit) in that team would be Matty and Bolo (who’s been injured). That said there’s not a huge difference in quality between our first 11 and what was on the park today.
