  1. Jordan Allan (then of Stirling, now at Stranraer) would have played against Jordan Allan (of Cowdenbeath) last season.
  2. Spain had a couple of goals wrongly ruled out in the quarter final.
  3. They also didn't beat anyone above Championship level (St Johnstone, Clyde, St Mirren, Dundee) to get there. I'm bitter as having beaten Celtic we were denied a blatant penalty at Broadwood in drawing the first tie 0-0, before having to play into the worst wind I've seen in a match down at Raydale. We literally struggled to get the ball out our box at goal-kicks etc. Probably the best chance of getting to a Scottish cup final we'll have in my lifetime.
  4. I love the "Route to the final" advertising boards.
  5. You can't promote teams based on an unfinished season, if you don't relegate based on an unfinished season.
  6. Teams that have big fancy electronic scoreboards go up.
  7. Clyde often have bigger attendances at closed door games than actual ones. I think everyone enjoys the challenge of sneaking in.
  8. I think the most remarkable thing is that Dumbarton have scored more goals than Clyde this season, and Clyde have conceded less than Dumbarton.
  9. It's been interesting watching Duffy's team this season. He will claim that absolutely dire style is him getting the best out of a limited squad, but he couldn't be bothered putting a better team together earlier on in the summer. One thing he has done in each game though is mix up tactics during the match, which is something he didn't really do when at Clyde. We were in total control early on, should have scored, but when Carswell went off he went two up front. That stopped our fullbacks pushing forward as much as they had been. It did mean that Grant had more time on the ball but we didn't really exploit that, with some awful final passes from all of the front five. He changed it a few times second half; Quitongo went out left, McCluskey was put closer to Grant, Forbes was right up with the striker at one point, throwing on the Stranraer reject "target" man. Not sure any of it worked to be honest; they couldn't handle McStay and Goodwillie at the other end. Each of them could have easily netted a brace, possibly more. Whilst I understand people having a pop at McStay, I thought he made all the difference today. Playing against a team who are as compact as that, he moved them out of their shape time and time again with his runs from deep. Still bursting down the line in stoppage time to help set up the second goal. Isaac Layne didn't look fit/sharp, but that may have been because Lang and McNiff defended aggressively. Livingstone wasn't tested, neither Lyon really. Grant was excellent. Cunningham and Lamont both quiet but the former put an absolute sitter on a plate for Goodwillie. Love much better in the second half. The game could probably have gone ahead without a referee. An easy day out for an official normally to be found in the top division.
  10. Been our best player. And probably our worst as well. This game is crying out for Johnston and Rankin.
  11. I thought the referee had a good game. I didn't agree with some of his decisions, but I didn't disagree either. It will be a real shame if Montrose don't get into the playoffs. A good team who have improved leaps and bounds since their promotion season. One of the best players in the league in Lyons (Thistle ). They know how to play against us as well, closing down our midfield. It was strange that Grant ended up scoring such a great goal, as Niang was stopping him from getting anywhere near the ball. That said, we had a bit of a game-plan as well. Cunningham and Love dealt really well with their full-backs. McStay got the better of his opposite number. Some great interchanging between Goodwillie/Lamont to break Montrose out of their structure. As good a player as Lyons is, I actually thought Cuddihy dealt well with him pretty well. Lang, Cunningham and Livingstone have saved our season; the addition of three players with pace was what I was crying out for last summer and it's noticeable when we play a team who are pacy across the pitch like Montrose. McStay has shown quite a few signs that he is stepping up to this level, thought he played well today. A great three points and the table looks staggeringly different from this time last week. A couple more wins will be enough. Montrose will feel they should have taken something but we contributed enough to the game to give ourselves a fighting chance of the win.
  12. Did the Montrose management team not get their dinner or something? Perma-raging.
