  1. Well I got my wish at least. I thought we were poor for a lot of that game today, but our quality shone through in the end. Telfer looked really good and will fit into our team well. I don’t think ATS is going to improve the team at all, but he should be okay as cover. I really don’t like Jamieson’s attitude, it seems totally at odds to the rest of the team. He’s a player that’s great when you’re 3-0 up, but not somebody I’d be relying on if we’re up against it. Young goalie did well as well again today, albeit his kicking could improve. Fantastic to see Smith back on the scoresheet as he’s been off the boil for a few weeks. A couple of games left of the first quarter of the season and we’re looking in decent shape. Still a few gears to go through as well.
  2. I wouldn’t start Jamieson and I don’t think Wiley should be anywhere near the starting 11. I’d go: Henderson Watson - McCabe - Fordyce - Deveney Telfer - Devenny - Frizzell McGill - Gallagher - Smith If Telfer isn’t fit enough yet I’d move McCabe into midfield and start ATS alongside Fordyce. After last season I hope we absolutely batter Clyde. ETA: I’d like to see McMaster given some game time today as well. Looked really promising in early season before getting injured.
  3. Wonder if we’ll appeal Ballantyne’s sending off. If not we’ve got to line up like this on Saturday: Henderson Watson - Fordyce - ATS - Deveney Frizzell - McCabe - Devenny McGill - Gallagher - Smith

  5. Despite the appalling result yesterday, I’m not overly worried. When it was 11 vs. 11 Edinburgh struggled to get out their own half. McCabe’s naive tactics were to blame for the heavy defeat in the end but I’ve no doubt he’ll learn from this. You cant expect to appoint a 29 year old manager and for him not to make a few catastrophic mistakes along the way. I’d like to think we’ll be back to our usual selves next week. McAllister being suspended will definitely help!
  6. Embarrassing result in the end and tactically very naive from McCabe thinking we could continue to play our high risk football with ten men. Hopefully he learns from this. That being said, I can’t help but feel we’ve been done by the referee here. That was never a red card in a million years. Even if it did hit his hand (which I’m not convinced it did) the ball was going miles wide so couldn’t have stopped a goal! Sickener. Hopefully we appeal the decision and Ballantyne is back available next week at Montrose. Whether we had lost 1-0 or 10-0 today it’s still zero points. Take it on the chin and move on. Reluctant to criticise any individuals too much but I feel Wiley is just too slow and ponderous on the ball. Really doesn’t suit our style of play.

  10. Even if every man, woman and child that supported Airdrie were swastika waving bigots I don’t see how that could prove whether the club handled Quitongo’s correctly or not. Utterly bizarre line of questioning.
  11. That’s a shame as I won’t be able to make the game. it was the QoSTV Live section: https://www.qosfc.com/qostv
  12. Reasonably confident going into Saturday. We’re playing some really good stuff and all of a sudden our strikers have started scoring. Hopefully McMaster is back in the squad. I doubt Rae will be anywhere near the squad as he was still in a sling on Saturday - not an issue as long as Johnson’s loan can be extended. I don’t recall ever getting a positive result from QoS though so not expecting an easy game. Do QoS stream the games for fans “outside of the UK”? A glance at your website suggests you do, but I fear this may not have been updated since COVID times.

  17. Really surprised to see some of the negative comments on here. I came away from last nights game entirely optimistic for the season ahead. We may be behind where we were last season in terms of personnel, but in terms of our style of play I’d say we’re streets ahead. Some really impressive stuff I thought. We dominated the game last night against a decent Edinburgh side. I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say we could have easily scored 3, 4, 5 goals on another night. Rae, Ballantyne and Devenny are all excellent additions and are definitely improvements on last season. The way the team was set up and the speed of passing was excellent. If we continue to play like that, once the squad are up to speed, I can see us battering a couple of teams this seasons. I think with 3 or 4 solid additions we could really compete at the top again this season. I’d like to see the following: - Starting LB. I think Deveney is decent but not good enough (based on what I’ve seen so far) and certainly nowhere near Ballantyne’s level on the other side. - CB cover. I like Fordyce, McCabe and Watson but we’ll need cover to ensure we can still compete when we inevitably pick up injuries. - CM. I’ve seen Telfer’s name mentioned, I think a player like him is needed. - ST. Despite having 4 strikers I think we could do with another given Salim’s injury record so far. We saw last night that with Gal out and Gabby & Smith not firing we really struggled to get the ball in the back of the net. I don’t think we need a big squad but would need at least 17/18 first team players, supported by the academy squad as we seen last night, to be competitive.
  18. While most teams in the lower leagues seem to be having the same issues, we appear to be in the worst position numbers wise…
  19. Glad to see we’ve overcome the supply chain issues with the ink for the fountain pen
  20. I see that’s Kieran MacDonald signed for Edinburgh. I would have thought that was a player that would have been a decent signing for us in a position we currently don’t have anyone for!
  21. I think Scott McGill is good enough to start regularly for us. Wonder if we’ll see him back this season?
  22. I’m surprised you managed to type that post through your tears.
