  1. Was just about to say this... since Ian Murray left Dumbarton we haven't done enough of the "dirty" side of things. Nice to see Faz bringing back the kind of things every other team seems to do against us! I also enjoy that Faz has introduced the multi-ball system at home too. Well overdue that we returned the favour to other teams who have used it effectively against us for the last few years.
  2. Has anyone seen highlights of the game again? Be handy to see some of the key moments again.
  3. The guys around me thought it was offside but I also thought he got a touch on the ball. Ref gave it and the linesman (who was in the perfect position) appears to have missed both the offside and the touch on the ball. We weren't really good enough but we had a chance up until that point really. Cove didn't look that good at all but they got the goals in the first half to make them comfortable. Ref also completely bottled it from sending off Morgan Neill and also McAllister late on for his deliberate hand ball. To sum up, the Ref ruined any chance we had of getting something, despite us not being great.
  4. Surely we can figure out when his isolation is finished? If we aren't 100% we should be able to ask the Test and Protect team or whatever because they usually send quite specific instruction on dates etc.
  5. Ooft! You sure you have a big enough stadium for that clash of the titans??
  6. I'd say the main point of this debate is that nothing is clear. Even when slowed right down it isn't obvious. Do you really think he was only booked because Maclean exaggerated how hurt he was?? This was no clearer than the penalty award you guys got in your favour - which also looked a bit soft and resulted in a booking but additionally a penalty and goal for you guys. They just about even themselves out as both could have been given or not on another day.
  7. That was kinda the point of my post. Yer man David and his ridiculous attitude was so farfetched I thought I'd join the game
  8. Calm down there David Big team syndrome much? I'm sure Airdrie will walk the league based on the players they have in their squad and we will look forward to a relegation battle . How are the league standings looking so far?
  9. Fairly selective screenshot that. Don't think it is as black and white as that would suggest though... Project_08-08_HD 720p_MEDIUM_FR30.mp4
  10. Are you serious? if he was conned for that then he was conned for the penalty (even moreso). I don't think we had to target Wardrop to be honest, it was a clumsy challenge but if we had put Maclean on the opposite side then Quitongo would have done the exact same thing. Our player was smart and got himself between the ball and the challenge. The Airdrie team (and bench) seemed to be pretty angry all day yesterday and they lost their heads. That is what cost you guys the victory in my opinion.
  11. Just watched through it and actually agree 100%. Both could have gone either way on another day. A bit clumsy in both cases. I enjoyed how bitter Murray was. He didn't admit that the pen was soft and points out that "their (our) 'keeper ran half the length of the park to tell the ref to give the booking" yet didn't mention any of his own players behaviour at that point. Needs to take off the tinted specs and stop being such a bitter dick. Yeah, that interview was a bit surprising to me. Saying that "we need to be seeing off 'these' teams" is pretty disrespectful and he could be doing with winding in the his neck and stopping with the Billy big baws attitude because at this level there isn't going to be too much between any of the sides.
  12. Only got this far but it does look a bit on the soft side. Clumsy looking but unsure how much contact there actually was...
  13. I mean, we were way off the pace for most of today and but for the sending off would probably not have scored at all. We certainly need another creative option in the form of a goalscorer. We missed McKee a lot today and were doing lots of the basics poorly. But I agree, that game last year finishes with us gaining zero points, regardless of a sending off for the opposition.
  14. It doesn't change anything really though? Just because he allegedly done this doesn't mean the yellow card wasn't the correct decision.
  15. Even if he wasn't happy about the 2nd yellow. He must be forming his decision on the players reactions because there's no way he had a clear view from the other side. Very petty way to get sent off for someone who should know better. As always, Murray had his team ready to frustrate. From the moment the first goal went in they were taking an eternity to do anything (especially the 'keeper). Came back to bite them in that they didn't do enough to prevent us equalising.
  16. I thought it was a yellow. Intelligent play from our player but Wardrop was sucked right into it. Yeah for me that was as bad as the handbags stuff that went on between Quitongo and Buchanan, Geggan and McGeever. McGeever seemed to be calming him more than anything but his heads seemed to have gone. But yeah, had to be at least a booking for me to do that.
  17. I actually mentioned this today. The one where he actually booked him was where he was time wasting the least for me! Barry Cook...
  18. Just to double check, you realise it was a 2nd booking and not a straight red? Rico was lucky to stay on really and so was the 'keeper. He was warned for time wasting 3 times before being booked (the 1st of which was in the first half!!) I didn't even realise Easton was on the park until he was subbed off either Going by that showing we aren't exactly going to miss players like Wardrop, Quitongo and Frizzell this season though.
  19. How are the former sons settling in? By all means, you guys had a poor result today but surely there'll be a bit more fight about things next week with the number of players playing against their former team?
  20. If we had kept JD on then you could have almost quoted this word for word about him, even some of the specifics (I.e. Jones) were exact same with us. You guys should've rid yourselves if DL and I feel it could cost you dearly that he has been allowed to assemble another squad for this season. I appreciate budgets and difficulties but surely he could have signed better than Jones and Docherty (who FWIW was great in his time with us but that was 5/6 years ago and he has only gone downhill since he left us).
  21. Yep, I have a feeling that about half the Airdrie squad will be particularly up for it next week. Especially given their disappointing opening day result. I would have felt better if they had drawn or scraped a win today but they will be keen to get going for the season and the guys who have worn a sons shirt in the past will feel they have a point to prove and show they haven't stepped backwards when they turned down the offers we made them.
  22. Yeah, my main gripe is that I felt we both had the same problems last year and it wasn't all particularly to do with the squads themselves, moreso the managers who were in charge of them. As you have said, different players with the same result on the pitch from you guys. Complete contrast to ourselves in comparison to our last match a few months ago...
  23. I said this today. The fact we made (in my opinion) the right decision and got a new manager in rather than keep with Duffy will be the difference between us and Clyde. Both teams were very similar last season and I felt both needed a fresh approach to things. Clyde stuck the dinosaur that Lennon is and we didn't. All the best but I do feel Clyde will struggle this year due to not changing enough in pre-season. It was clear you guys only just scraped avoiding the play offs last season. We were exactly the same but seem to have at least tried to do something about it.
