    This was essentially what happend at Hearts game last night. There was a minutes silence at the start of the second half. There was the odd shout of f**k the queen and the likes which were then shouted down by other fans, some people then started singing God save the queen and others started to boo that. No one came out looking great in that episode. 

    Thing is, if (and that's a massive if) we are allowed to play next week at Raith a day or 2 before the funeral there will still be a minute silence - they aren't going to let the first football games go ahead without one.  So you are just pushing the potential issue back a week or 3.

    The only sport showing common sense Ice Hockey going ahead with due respects being made before the first games, sounds like they may get record attendances as there is absolutely nothing on elsewhere madness

    Think it seems to be:  golf, rugby (England only), horse racing, cricket, ice hockey - show respect by playing as normal with silence / armbands or whatever.   Football - show respect by cancelling.    Its absolutely pathetic  

  3. They've shat it from the Rangers badge / Union Jack / Queen as profile pic Twitter which would have jumped on the outrage bandwagon, no doubt helped along by a few select newspapers.   As folk have said, as soon as there was no English football on we were never ever going to play, no matter what other Sports (rugby, golf, cricket, horse racing) are fine to go ahead at various points over the weekend

    Think it will be O’Connor for Mullen based on his favoured position 

    100% has to be same starting XI if fit surely. 

    Aye I'd imagine it's now O'Connor/Mullin and Ashford/JML ?   

    Excellent window.  Feeling very positive. My only real worry just now is centre midfield, and that's simply based on Ben Dempsey's career seeming to have always been interrupted by injures, just like his loan spell last year.  

    Bring on Saturday.  Would be very disappointed if we don't take a really good crowd through.  Mon Ayr 

  5. Intrigued as to how Brad Smith gets on.  Quite an interesting career - scored in a FA Youth Cup final win v Liverpool, played for Villa first team c Salah & Mane etc in the cup when all of their first team had Covid, and also seems to have missed a few months out injured after being stabbed in a brawl in a park.   Seems like he is keen to come up here and progress 

  6. Much as I love the buzz of an #imminent, the sensible option just now is surely to save any potential remaining budget until the final loan deadline approaches next month and see what we need at that point.  A couple of injuries in the next 4 matches and we could be in the market for a position we wouldn't even be considering today

    Forrest was absolutely unplayable that day and could have scored about 6 on his own.

    Definitely.  We went for a pint after game then ended up chatting to him outside Tutties as players were getting on bus - he was buzzing.  Something along the lines of "we were brilliant today weren't we? It seemed we were brilliant. Did it look that good for you guys or is it just me?"   I was happy to pose for a photo looking like a creepy uncle and reassure him that yes, we were indeed brilliant.

    Docherty was never on loan was he? Sure we got him when he left Airdrie.

    Worst loans are funny because they can be shite for different reasons. Jack Ruddy is one of the worst for ability and attitude. But you get guys that come here and disappear after a few weeks or just don’t play. Innes Cameron and Jamie Thomas spring to mind. McGavin is the best example of that.

    A loan that we never ever got the best out of was Nicky Cadden. I actually liked him for us but he never got a good run of games and then picked up an injury couple of games left.

    Cadden definitely falls in to the same "good players, poor loan spells"  category as Scott Tiffoney and Bruce Anderson in recent seasons.
