  1. We don’t bother with men on the posts 🤷🏼‍♂️
  2. Was it not ? Raith deserved the points but I don’t think many would agree with you that the final score reflected the chances created by the teams over the 90 mins. Nup, McKee is to blame there. You're right that he got a touch to the ball but had he been in a better position he'd heave cleared it comfortably so saying he got a touch to it only makes it worse. He close enough to Duku initially that he literally has a hand on him. Instead of staying that tight he drifts away from him. He then gets needlessly closer to our own defender rather than the attacker and the goal is the result. Why he doesn't stick with the attacker until the ball is cleared is beyond me. It's lazy defending on his part and it's exactly the same as the goal he cost us last week. You said he had a free header which isn’t true, I would say it’s unfortunate that McKee gets something on the header and it bounces off the attackers head and in.
  3. Those goals really are absolutely awful from our point of view. First one, McCabe fails to track his man but I'd blame Buchanan almost as much. He's marking no one. You could argue his man is Duku but he's nowhere near him either. That ball could have just as easily ended in the net if it was passed to the right. Second goal, McKee (for the second week running) fails to mark his man and it's a free header. Third, McCabe looks like he should be tracking him again and once more Buchanan is in no man's land. Trying to play the offside trap or just couldn't be fucked running anymore. Appalling regardless. The fourth is possibly the worst on of the lot. The midfield is nonexistent and the closest man in the middle of the park to the attacker is our RB ffs! Ayo takes all the credit for no. 5. Just atrocious defensively but not all down to the actual defenders. The midfield need to start doing their job correctly as well. The second goal watch closely again, McKee gets his head to the ball first but it lands kindly on to the head of striker and Ferguson can’t quite reach it.
  4. The fifth goal is embarrassing from Ferguson after Ayos howler. He obviously expects the attacker to go across the goal but he kind of in shitebag style Manages to make himself paper thin, turns side on and sticks a foot out.
  5. I don’t feel quite as bad after watching the highlights as I did @4.45 yesterday. The second Raith goal was very fortunate, McKee winning the header and planting it straight on to the strikers head and beyond Ferguson. We had some great chances in the second half that a combination of poor finishing, woodwork and clearances off the line made the scoreline a little wider than the play possibly deserved. The first half was pretty much one way traffic for the majority so on the whole we probably didn’t deserve anything points wise but 5-2 was a bit flattering for Raith. We badly need at least two centre backs in, if Ayo wants to play some football I wouldn’t be totally against seeing him moving in to a deep lying midfield role which in turn might give us some some badly needed bite in there. Given how little bite he showed yesterday at centre half I’m not so sure It would work. McKee and McCabe as a pairing doesn’t work so let’s not ever make that mistake again, Pybus adds a bit more energy but zero quality on the ball. Looking like a long season ahead.
  6. I’m sure we wouldn’t be losing as many goals because of players being lazy and losing their men if they thought they were going in to a locked dressing room with a prime Roy Keane. After that second goal on Saturday the changing room would have resembled a royal rumble.
  7. Yeah but failed to book the Ayr player who gave away the first penalty. Buchanan looked to have a tap in from a few yards and hauled down.
  8. I’m not 100% sure how we have managed to get Ayo, he looks a very good player at this level. Good in the air, rarely seems to be caught out of position and for a centre back looks outstanding with the ball at his feet. The only negative player performance wise last night for me would be how little Harry Robinson showed before being hooked about 25 minutes too late. Hope he can turn it round but so far it looks like he will struggle at this level.

I have started the 2035/36 season and he has 3 in 3 so maybe starting to show his worth. current manager - Gary MacKenzie just arrived at Xmas last season has been assistant manager more than anything else including a spell at Leeds. This is his first gig as a manager. Former notable managers - Gary Naysmith replaced Danny Lennon on the 9th of March 2023 and stayed for 2 years before leaving for Ayr United.

    Noticed a strange transfer this morning, Dunfermline who are 3rd in the championship just paid Aberdeen (9th in premiership) £3 million for a 17 year old regen who on the face of it looks murder.On further investigation they are worth £59 million as a club which is more than 6/7 premier league sides and 6xthe worth of Killie who are currently in the top 6. Must have a sugar daddy owned but finances just say secure. They produced an absolutely brilliant left back in 2022 who they sold for 2 million back in 2025/26 to Watford. He is now valued at £19.75 million and has 63 caps for Northern Ireland. Now wondering what the f**k my scouts were doing when this guy was under our noses. I’m really invested in this save and I’m not sure if anyone will care or not but think I might post every club in Scotland’s current manager and current position and then best position over the past 16 seasons. More for my self but thought all you fm addicts would be interested...maybe. If anyone wants anything apart from what I said above just ask.

    Played a season and a bit since last update. Alloa made it to the premier league it went straight back down with a record low points total. 8 points. Two wins both at home to motherwell and two draws 1-1 at home to Falkirk and 1-1 away to Hamilton. They are now rock bottom of the championship after the first quarter. They have been replaced in the premiership by Cowdenbeath, I had the pleasure of visiting them on the opening day. The flag unfurling was a thing of beauty through the cage. I pumped them 5-0 and sent the blue Brazil fans home thinking they might not beat Alloa’s points total. They could be right as they only have 4 points after 8 games the same as Alloa. Alloa didn’t pick up another point before the split. Scottish teams in Champions league are ripping it up, four teams in this seasons competition are Celtic, Rangers, Hibs and Hearts. Opening two match days have seen Celtic beat Liverpool 5-3 at home and Seville 3-0 away with Inter Milan the other team. Rangers beat Porto away 1-0 and Man Utd 2-0 at Ibrox and Hamburg still to play. Hearts beat Monaco 4-0 at home and then got a good away point at Feyenoord with Arsenal finishing off that group. Hibs have by far the easiest group they beat Fc Kobenhaven 2-0 at home then went to slovan Liberec and won 5-0 final team in that Group is Real Madrid who actually beat Hibs in the last 16 last season last season. I say beat it was more like an assault, 9-2 on agg. Rangers went out 8-2 on agg to Man City at the same stage. Celtic managed the semis before a 6-0 pumping at Anfield saw them lose 7-4 on agg. St Mirren dropped into UEFA cup and were beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 16. I now have a 33 year old Phil Foden as my only non regen in my squad, Ajer retired after making 472 appearances at the end of the 2033/34 season. I have got the club back on a sound financial footing after doing some wheeling and dealing. My whole starting 11 is 4 and a half stars or 5 which helps domestically, but really want another few champions league wins before I move on club or new save wise. I want to resign and try to get the queen of the south job who are languishing in league 2. That would be a nice way to end the save.

    Has to be scudding them constantly, not playing them would be shit after a while. I beat Rangers 6-0 at Ibrox and I think I could hear my laptop boooing.

    Stendel has just got the Bayern job, this game is high. St Mirren are in the champions league too.
