  1. The comments from Tatters are ridiculous, it was raining this morning, yesterday and several times throughout this week and last. It isn't even a new problem as Jim McInally was moaning about it at the end of last season. I wonder if perhaps the new drainage system they put in a few seasons ago has worked too well and caused this problem? Whatever the reason, painful to be a laughing stock yet again for off field reasons.

    For a Prime Icon, he's amazing value for coins in my opinion, I tried him and Del Piero both on loan before deciding which SBC to do and preferred Rui Costa by a mile, current SBC cost on Xbox for both is 500k for Costa and 1 million for Del Piero

    FIFA 18

    I had been using the 84 Immobile for months and didn't bother upgrading to the 86 because of how good the 84 was for me, then he got bumped to 86 during the ratings refresh and I couldn't believe the difference so got the 88 and it's easily the best striker I've used in any FUT, he's an absolute tank that rarely gets knocked off the ball and scores 9/10 times inside the box. The biggest upgrades I've noticed from the 84/86 are his long shots and he finally has decent passing. He reminds me of Ibra from FIFA 17 just with much more pace. I use him alongside SIF Icardi and have Rui Costa at CAM and they can be unstoppable. Agree with people about SIF SAS, he's a beast and worth the coins.
  4. There are some comments from him in the Northern Scot report. Also some interesting comments from McGovern about leaving Clyde... Northern Scot
  5. Our Highlights have a different angle, if you pause it as the player heads the ball, McCord does look to be level and onside. Arbroath 3-2 Elgin City
  6. Absolutely ridiculous that it took a month for the club to send him for a scan and that he travelled to Annan and came on at Cowdenbeath in that time. I agree that Gunny will​ be off to the Highland League next season, so recapturing his old form to help us get promoted would be the perfect end to his spell at Elgin
  7. After losing the game at Gayfield despite being 2-0 up and then not being able to score against 10 men today, our inability to beat Arbroath is worrying with the playoffs in mind. Would rather they caught Forfar than have to play them. Ridiculous decision from Northcroft not to give the penalty, his record of shite decisions against us continues.
  8. Avoid Defeat on Tuesday and we'll be in position to move into 2nd with a win over Arbroath. Forfar looking a little more catchable now too
  9. If we don't go up, Buckie would be absolutely brilliant so we could get a fierce local derby 4 times a season. The attendance was over 2000 when we met them in the Scottish Cup, so there's financial benefits there too. They have one of the biggest followings in the Highland League and would bring a decent number to most grounds
  10. Seems like a good signing but he's a Winger/Striker, which are the positions we're strongest in. Could do with more defensive cover. I heard Scott Smith is close to a return, he'll be like a new signing for us
  11. Forecast is for it to be dry and mild all week. Even if it's wrong, our pitch covers seem to do the job to protect from frost and we have some fancy air machine thing that stops the pitch being waterlogged. Buzzing for this, can't wait. The difference in form and confidence at the two clubs create the perfect conditions for an upset. Someone asked about Mackay, he's cup-tied but we've signed Marc Waters as backup and he's a capable replacement
  12. Looking forward to revisiting the "why we hate Caley even though it's a new club" debate from when we last met 5/6 years ago We came bloody close to causing an upset that day, I'm still haunted by Frizzel's miss at 0-0. Shane Sutherland is in the form of his life the moment and he's going to be fired up for this. I read somewhere he said he was dying to get Caley in the draw.
  13. Waters main club is Queens Park, he's on a short term loan with us for a month, presumably only a month to give Esson time to recover at Caley so Cammy MacKay can return on loan again
  14. Stirling 0-4 Elgin City Highlights Wow, it's strange to win 4-0 and be disappointed we didn't score at least double that.
  15. Probably best to stop McLeish and MacLeod from scoring too. One thing standing out already about our squad this season is we're not overly reliant on Gunny for goals. With our home record, it's hard not to be confident that we'll do well against anyone at home and I've been pretty impressed by what I've seen from us already this season. Shane has returned a different player, he's always had ability but he's added much more effort and work into his game and it's paying off already, I'd take Shane on current form over Dylan Easton every day of the week. Easton has the odd flash of brilliance but I think we're actually a better and more balanced team without him, we're playing a much more flowing game without him breaking up and slowing down play with his over the top shite and giving the ball away every 5 minutes. Elsewhere, I like Keiran Stewart a lot, I think he's been decent in both positions I've seen him and Cameron MacKay gives us a much improved option in goal, he's seemed composed and reliable so far and has much better kicking that Blackie. Overall I think we've got a better team than last season and having less reliance on loan players is a bonus. 3-1 Elgin
  16. Anyone else back over 2.5 goals in all of tonight's Irn Bru cup games? I made £1364 from a £10 stake over 3 bets
  17. Elgin 1-3 St Johnstone Highlights
  18. I remember Weir saying last season that you can never have enough strikers right before we got Kyle Lander on loan and then only gave the lad 5 minutes in 2 months. I think with Gunn, Sutherland, MacLeod and McLeish, that's definetely enough strikers and he needs to concentrate on bringing in a Goalkeeper and few defenders. It'll be interesting to see who gets the nod to start the season upfront.
