  1. East Fife v Dumbarton

    Being honest though you'd rather pump Raith regularly than us, wouldn't you?
  2. East Fife v Dumbarton

    Please do. Hopefully you return to the non-DFC playing East Fife for those games.

    We're very lucky. Killie didn't want to loan him out at the end of the normal window, then (with the window only open to us diddy clubs) he/they decided that he wanted to get playing again, and he rocked up at us. Because he'd already played for Killie this season it meant he couldn't play for another team, and he didn't want to go to Ireland because he's got his own business over here, hence we got to keep him. In a pretty miserable season it's pretty much the only thing that's gone right for us.

    Jesus Christ. I think I actually had a few heart attacks in the second-half. East Fife looked like scoring every time they went down the wing. Dom Thomas is unbelievable. That might've been one of the best ever performances I've seen from a Dumbarton player. Three goals and an assist. The only way that East Fife jobber could get near him was by grabbing him and booting him. Darren Young will be seething about that, because up until that point they looked far more likely to score next. Calum Gallagher and then, right at the death, Michael Paton missed unbelievable chances to make it five - but the three points and four goals will do. That today was Ian Murray-esque. Hunners of goals, brilliant attacking football, mental defending and three points on the road. What a change from the turgid Aitkenball we've been forced to watch for the past few seasons.

    I know I've probably said this before, but Pat Slattery is a brilliantly lower league Scottish football name. Sounds like a guy from the 80s.

    Wow. Let's put this another way, given that LGBT people can choose to hide their sexuality does that make homophobia any less abhorrent?

    The worst referee I've ever seen doing a Sons game was Irishman Ben Connolly, who did our tie with Connah's Quay last year. Based on that alone I'd be very, very keen to stick with the Scottish guys (who by and large are pretty decent imo).

    I was at a conference a wee while back where a guy presented on sectarianism, and he argued that they only way to tackle it was by referring to it as anti-Catholic or anti-Protestant racism. His argument was along the lines of that word really driving home how serious it is, whilst the term 'sectarianism' has been totally devalued. Imo Sectarianism is seen as a bit of a joke to a lot of people. We all likely know people who are pretty openly sectarian and, dare I say it, borderline proud of the fact. Until that's made as socially unacceptable as racism then we won't get anywhere.

    Interesting to see the same people who said Morelos shouldn't have been dismissed against Aberdeen a few weeks ago "because there wasn't any aggression" now saying "As soon as you do anything like that it's a red" about Bachmann. Twitter is utterly unbearable at the moment. RANGERS MIGHT'VE DONE A BAD THING BUT CELTIC DO BAD THINGS TOO AND NOBODY EVER MENTIONS THAT.
  11. Killie v Cowdenbeaths conquerors

    I totally agree with you. There's obviously far more pressure when covering an Old Firm game; the press/former players and fans go into meltdown if something doesn't go their way, and that will, subconsciously, play on the officials' mind. Add in 40/50/60,000 screaming supporters and it's not a surprise that they get a lot of decisions. Imo the standard of refereeing isn't that bad in this country. Certainly in League One it's been decent this season.
  12. Killie v Cowdenbeaths conquerors

    Might as well just send off every 'keeper at every corner if that's a red
  13. Killie v Cowdenbeaths conquerors

    What's happened with the red card? Both the Killie and Rangers Twitter have been pretty vague about things.
