  1. They claimed it was playable for the play offs despite it being up to your ankles and not lined .
  2. Exactly. The objective of the game on Wednesday was not to lose. We did that , down to every one of Clarke's team playing to his (and Austin McPhee's ) system. Due to illness and injury our strength was always going to be a disciplined defence and midfield. That turned out to be exactly the case. There is little point in anyone comparing our performance on Wednesday against any other game in the last few months as it was a completely different scenario altogether. Clarke and McPhee should be absolutely congratulated for getting the performances required from the new guys in that pressured environment.
  3. Craig was one of the few who actually went out and acted on that dossier . He knew change was needed. I think that was basically the point the OP was making. Most at the time just went through the motions at Largs , got their badges and just continued with the same old tat they were taught 20 years earlier as players. Unfortunately for Brechin , we ended up with quite a few of these types who talk a great game but do f**k all to follow it up. In my opinion Craig is one of football's genuine good guys. Very approachable and honest.
  4. Barry Wison's pre match video kind of sums up the complacent approach to this game . His preparation on how Brechin play was seemingly based on watching their Scottish cup highlights from last week. This was the type of management which contributed to our catastrophic downfall. Just saying .
  5. You will soon learn ...............when the away committees start outnumbering your hospitality guests . Just saying
  6. How cute. And maybe explains Lossie's position in the Highland league
  7. If I was a Lossie fan , I'd be more concerned that he made more of a fuss about the catering than what was happening on the park .
  8. Ah. Bummer. I thought Dick C might have steered him in our direction seeing as Dick is a self confessed Brechin fan.
  9. Yep . Let that be a lesson to you all about complacency. That trap door is wide open now .
  10. You have to remember we are in the highland league. Edit. Word is Buckie are going to appeal it .
  11. Obviously some people can't see the broader picture.
  12. Reading his resume , it seems rather than being injury prone he had a back problem which was operated on and hopefully rectified. He played most of last season for Edinburgh City (or whatever they call themselves now) switching from grass to plastic pitches and seems to be ok so fingers crossed.
  13. That's one man's opinion. Not Brechin City's
  14. An interesting perception given that everyone I've spoken to who was at the game reckons there was nothing between the sides in the first half and Arbroath shaded it in the second half when the Brechin trialists began to tire. Considering Brechin had about 5 or 6 of the first team missing I think they did quite well.
  15. I think McLennan has now established himself in the first team squad .
  16. Quite a few first team regulars away on holiday I believe, so will be interesting to see what we are capable of with a full squad available. By all accounts the guys yesterday looked a lot sharper and fitter than last season so all bodes well so far.
  17. You have hit the nail on the head................but in our case the lack of "future proofing " was evident way before our time in the Championship. Our disastrous season there should have sent the alarm bells off in the board room but sadly it didn't , despite the many concerning questions asked from season ticket holders. The realisation only came when we plummeted to 42nd place which of course was too late. Thankfully the club now seem to be more professionally focused on the future with a complete restructure and vision based on what we have seen at Arbroath and Montrose..............probably 10 years too late but the public support behind the changes has been incredible both financially and personally with people willingly giving up their time to help in any way they can . It is very evident that people want to have successful community clubs that everyone can feel part of . I am just so glad that our club got the kick up the backside that was needed to realise this.
