  1. Raith Rovers v Stranraer

    That’s in the League. We did win a Challenge Cup tie there in August 1997 thanks to a Gordon Young goal. Still no doubt we’re overdue a result though. [emoji4]
  2. The League 1 Squeaky Bum Battle

    We’ve all been guilty of meek this season. Fair play to the Mo to be safe with 4 to go is a great effort and on balance from what I’ve seen. Well deserved [emoji122]
  3. The League 1 Squeaky Bum Battle

    All tough fixtures but Excuse my pedantry. Brechin are at home to Arbroath [emoji4]
  4. The broath v the mo

    Stair Park capacity is now 4178
  5. Stenny v Stranraer

    Oops not directed at you Neilly - for you kvz2000
  6. Stenny v Stranraer

    Once again you raise committee financial failings. I asked you to explain this on 24th January on another thread but I’m still waiting. Very serious allegation potentially. I’m now wondering what information or knowledge you have that you seem unwilling to share. Are you complicit in this financial failing? All a bit suspicious that you only appear to give out negativity and criticism? I am very keen to explore and resolve these financial concerns / allegations. Will you meet up and discuss?
  7. Stranraer v Brechin

    Is that the same common sense that perhaps could have been applied to playing the fixture on the date offered during the mildest January anyone can recall?
  8. Stranraer v Brechin

    Indeed they were similar but not exactly the same. Brings in the questions about what the criteria would be for postponing on weather forecast? Would it be uniform given each ground has unique geographical features, quirks and idiosyncrasies? Oh and who would decide.... as I say a Pandora’s Box. Pun intended [emoji4]
  9. Stranraer v Brechin

    Interesting if games were postponed on the basis of forecast then six matches would have been postponed tonight. That would have been five bad decisions! Making decisions on forecasts isn’t guaranteed to be correct either and does open a Pandora’s box
  10. Stranraer v Brechin

    Not trying to play anything down. We saw the forecast same as everyone else. Discussed with SPFL and Brechin and everyone knew about risk to the fixture. What we did was inspect at 10am, 12 noon and 3.30pm and on each occasion, as the forecasted weather had yet to arrive, the pitch and conditions were playable. Could have called in a referee on each occasion and it would have passed fit. A local referee was on standby after the third inspection should things have deteriorated but this was superseded when the match referee arrived early and inspected, postponing the fixture at around 5.30pm. We followed the rules and protocols available to us. Not sure what else is expected. Incidentally the same rules and protocols that Arbroath followed when we travelled there last month. So we have experienced this from the away side perspective too. If the rules are wrong, that’s a different conversation, and one for the clubs to have, but as they are we followed them. Can’t see what more our club could have done in today’s circumstances.
  11. Stranraer v Brechin

    Stranraer have been in contact with both Brechin City and SPFL since Monday morning. There has been regular communication.

    Game Off
  13. Brechin V Stranraer

    I’ve just watched them again and I’ve a bit more sympathy with the ref now than I did on Saturday. Thomson first booking which didn’t look like a foul in real time is a fairly clear shove and denies a clear attack with ref perfectly placed to see it. Booking correct for me. His second booking is still a bit questionable but he was fortunate not to get a yellow for his dive attempting to win a penalty with ref again perfectly placed to see that so Brechin fortunate that they only had 3 minutes with ten men rather than 30. The second penalty claim could have been given either way to be fair. If the ref hasn’t given it because of the earlier dive then that’s good karma and a break that you sometimes need and a rare one for us in recent weeks so most welcome. For example the penalty we were denied at Arbroath 10 days beforehand was much more clear cut. Stranraer free kick for the winner is a foul and the protests about it not being taken from the correct place that I heard on Saturday don’t stand up. If there’s any doubt about that being a free kick have a look at the one Brechin got in the first match in September in almost the same place. These things even each other out. Stranraer well deserved victory, better side for most of the game but we need to be turning more of our good play into chances, as a result we needed crucial saves from our keeper at crucial times which isn’t good for the blood pressure! Great to get the win we’ve been due now hopefully push onwards and upwards.
