    That thought did cross my mind as well. I didn't really think that it was a lack of effort. I know the club and trust have been working flat out to get as much money in to the club as possible over the past few seasons.
  2. Sons' sorrow

    I agree about the tacky part but my point is that other cubs seems to have the boards on all sides of the park and they look as though they have 10x more sponsor boards than ourselves.

    In comparison to this:

    Regarding funding and sustainability etc. Is there a particular reason for the lack of sponsor signs located around the stadium? I know the amount of signs/boards have increased a fair bit over the last few seasons but it is nothing in comparison to the majority of other grounds in Scotland. Most other grounds like Alloa or the upcoming Stair Park have the perimeter of the pitch covered with advertising to the point where you couldn't fit another one in. We on the other hand have so much free space. Is this down to a lack of club efforts or is it more to do with the lack of businesses in the area? These boards that are displayed at other clubs must provided a sizeable income each season. For example... last home game. Not an advertisement in sight

    If Duffy was still in contract I certainly wouldn't be spending money to release him. I would be more than happy to give Duffy the chance to build his own squad and have a crack at it as I think we could do alot worse than Duffy. If he was out of contract which I believe that he is, I would definitely be inviting applications to see what else is available.

    I just wish we could get a settled starting eleven. If we can manage that for the rest of the season then it will give us half a chance of staying up. It feels like years since we have had that.
  7. Airdrieonians v Dumbarton

    I'm not getting this main culprits thing... If Forbes had just aimlessly lumped it up the park after getting the ball I'm sure most people (myself included) would have complained. A player should be able to lose the ball when the rest of the team are behind them and be confident that the 8 players behind him have some form of organisation and not all standing in the same area of the pitch twiddling their thumbs and are able to defend competently. That back line of defense is an absolute shambles from left to right. I just hope that Duffy starts playing them all in their natural positions and that Barr can slot in next week and take some control of it.

    I get that Forbes is lazy sometimes. He can maybe take a portion of the blame for not tracking a man but certainly not the majority let alone the sole blame. A gap that size in the last line of defense is not the fault of Forbes. End of story.
  9. Airdrieonians v Dumbarton

    I know what you mean. We seem to concede in the first few minutes of games way too often and it's becoming a recurring thing. You're definitely right with the players playing out of position needlessly. One of the big problems with that second goal is that Ballantyne is miles out of position. He was supposed to be playing left back but maybe found himself drifting over to his natural right side. He almost looks as though he is playing as a right centre back when that pass is played through.
  10. Airdrieonians v Dumbarton

    I actually think that the second goal we conceded was even worse. Why on earth is there a HUGE gap in our defensive line that allows 3 airdrie players to run through unnoticed? Utterly shocking organisation there.
  11. Airdrieonians v Dumbarton

    It has already been explained to you but I will do so again... It was not individual decisions that were causing the problem. It was the officiating as a whole that was totally incompetent which left the fans frustrated. Too many ridiculously easy decisions called totally wrong.
  12. Sons' sorrow

    Well said. However, I would also add to yourself that nobody is interested in hearing how much of an alcoholic you are in every post.
  13. Airdrieonians v Dumbarton

    Pretty poor first half. First minute goal conceded yet again... How many times have we conceded in the first 5 minutes of a game this season? It was definitely a yard or 2 offside but it was also poorly dealt with. Spent the rest half aimlessly lumping balls up the park seemingly without lifting their heads to look for a player. There was absolutely no shape to the team and I think that is the biggest issue we have at the moment. Players are all over the place and there is no fluidity because there is no understanding of each others movement. I think our season could be summed up well with the free kick we had 40 yards out. We have our defenders up waiting for the ball. Forbes who is known for putting an excellent ball into the box decides to pass it sideways instead of putting it in. That player then comes under pressure, passes it back to Forbes again who by this point is also under pressure and loses the ball. Airdrie then end up with a very strong counter attack from our shocking stupidity. Second half started a little better and and we seen a bit more of he ball. Managed to level the game up with a fantastic well struck shot from Barr when no team looked like they had a hold of the game. That seemed to give the team a flood of confidence they have been lacking for most of the season and we looked likely to score again. Airdrie manage to score a goal against the run of play which looked as though it could have been defended much better. Airdrie played the ball through our defense way too easily today and should have punished us more in the first half. The team responded well to the goal and started pressing Airdrie again. Nice bit of link up play between Armour and Thomas to get through for a shot. I was definitely not expecting Thomas to score from that angle but he just managed to squeeze it under the keepers hand into the bottom corner with what was a fantastic strike. I think we definitely deserved at least a point from that and would have been very hard done by to come away with nothing. Special mention to Melingui who fought for everything for the full match and put the Airdrie defenders under constant pressure. His touch is pretty poor quite alot of the time but I hope that will improve with a bit of game time. Bobby Barr also worked really hard today and had a number of successful ventures up the wing and overall had a great game in my opinion even without the goal. Needs to work on his defensive side a little as he found himself too far forward when we lost the ball. Also thought that Hutton had a pretty good game. Noticed him bringing the ball down a few times with good control and managing to get a decent pass off. Absolutely shocking display by the stand-side linesman. Some of the decisions by him had me truly dumbfounded. Also what is it recently with referees who put up with constant fouling in the first half by the opposition who could easily of had 3 bookings and then decide to book a Dumbarton player with a very soft foul at the start of the second half. How Airdrie never received a single booking today is ridiculous.

    Closest I can think of is Van Zanten Kinda counts

    Definitely need him playing alongside Mango especially with that smile. Was it not Craig Barr who is pictured with a cheeser of a smile every time he goes into a challenge? Try and dazzle our opponents. EDIT: Ahh nevermind... That was Buchanan I was thinking about.
