  1. Irvine Victoria 2018/19

    Keeper was a 10 out of 10 yesterday. Three great saves in the first half and a tremendous penalty save in the 2nd half too. All about taking your chances when they come. Vics did and Craigmark didn’t.
  2. Albion v Cowden

    Was one in Johnstone till about 10 years ago.
  3. The Albion Rovers Thread

    Really enjoyed the first two instalments looking forward to hearing the final part. Yes been best of your podcasts so far. Mick has come across very well in it.
  4. Can’t help but feel for the guy. Was always going to be up against it this season in the terms of resources he had and Stenny were competing in the division. It’s hardly as though they were returning to where they came from fast. Good job for someone. Stenny’s a well run club and got a good catchment area to draw on. Be interesting to see who they give the batten to.
  5. Missile Throwing

    Newcastle v West Ham if I remember correctly around 1980. Toon fans didn’t do half measures back then
  6. The Albion Rovers Thread

    I can see where people are coming from about the lack of budget putting a lot of perspective manager’s off but there are a lot of manager’s desperate to get back into senior football and I’m sure someone will take a chance on Albion Rovers. As regards to the budget, and in no way this is a dig at Queens Park but they manage to compete at this level year after year and is Rovers budget lower or superior to QP. Either way as Ammo quite rightly points out there are some gems out there if your prepared to go out and look for them whether it’s in junior, Amateur or juvenile football. QP do that successfully year after year.
  7. Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

    Didn’t see that one coming
  8. Absolutely gutted to hear Robbie is away. I’ve no doubt he’ll be a success somewhere else but I know how much he wanted to succeed at Berwick. Big big decision for the board to pick a successor. Possibly the biggest managerial decision they have ever had to make. Please not Jimmy Thomson for a third spell
  9. The Queen's Park 2018-19 Thread

    Scott McDermott from the Daily Record tweeting he’s heard it’s Jim Duffy
  10. New Stranraer podcast

    Cracking podcast guys. Keep up the good work.
  11. Fort William tomorrow

    Have to agree Fort were well disciplined and stuck to their game plan and credit due where it’s deserved. Suppose a case of what might have been had Fort kept 11 on the park. Up till the sending off FW are capably dealt with whatever Rose through at them. Must be said though Linlithgow are no where near the force they were.
  12. The Albion Rovers Thread

    Must admit a big improvement on what I seen two weeks ago at Edinburgh City. Defence looked a lot more tighter, you got the ball down and tried to play a bit football instead of shelling it continually and Rovers looked organised. Only worrying point for me is the final third because from a neutral point of view despite plenty of endeavour to get there not a lot was happening when they got there. A couple of big games coming up and if you can grab a win or two your back in the mix.
  13. Elgin City 2018/19

    Made hard work of it. Had the better chances and always thought if they kept their composure they would eventually grind Rovers down.
  14. The Albion Rovers Thread

    Good frank interview in today’s Sunday Mail with John Brogan which is worth a read. I liked the bit where he said he’s told when going for jobs: “there’s your budget can you manage on it” His answer I’ll strive to be as successful as we can with what we have but I’d never ask any club to gang themselves by the balls. I watched yesterday’s game and I fear for Rovers this season. Absolutely no quality through the team and it looked as though the players confidence is already spiralling towards rock bottom. Yet when you look at what Queen’s Park pick up and kick on with could Rovers effectively do the same.
  15. Pre Season Friendly Results

    Stranraer bear Annan 4-2 tonight.
