  1. Been really impressed with the performances so far. Gave a good account of ourselves against the teams from the higher leagues and played some nice football. Goalkeeper is the only position that worries me - Marshall hasn't impressed at all and I worry about what state Graeme Smith will be in should he ever get fit. It has been a long time since we went into a season with anything other than dread so this feeling is quite novel.
  2. Noticed what looked Ciaran Summers in training with Stirling.
  3. This club have no ground, no fans, no community and now they don’t even have a name. They are one man’s play thing and they are dangerous. Bad enough that they have given the Colts a foot in the door, just imagine if one of the established league clubs were to lose their status to this charade of a club.
  4. Hopkirk wasn’t the same player he was prior to signing the 2 year contract. Letting him go now suits both parties. Tapping is a different story, but whatever the clause was, we were happy to accept it when he signed the contract. My guess is that it was probably related to whether we were promoted or not.
  5. We’ve signed another player. Darren Christie. He was on loan at Annan last season and I recall he got some very good reviews.
  6. Given it seems to have been common knowledge he was leaving, I am assuming we have spent his salary on the recent additions. A midfield of Forbes and Wedderburn bothers me as neither are particularly mobile. As FF said a while back, how does that midfield duo align with Swift’s stated policy of an energetic, pressing team. And then there’s Crichton... Still optimistic that we will get the right blend of players making the step up and those with league experience but losing Tapping is a concern.
  7. In other words, give away a quarter share of the club for free? They are trying to raise capital. The distribution of a small amount of shares to season ticket holders is not an unreasonable goodwill gesture.
  8. My god. How do you block posters on P&B? PS I wasn’t aware Motherwell and Ross County wanted their colt teams in the Lowland League. PPS Motherwell seem to be doing pretty well at developing young Scottish talent as things stand PPPS you do realise that the Rangers and Celtic colt team proposal is being continually put forward (by Rangers and Celtic) purely for their own benefit and not for the greater good. Why would they change the habit of a lifetime?
  9. Nobody apart from the people that appointed him. Everyone could see it was a crazy appointment and yet they haven’t apologised once for getting it so badly wrong. At least not as far as I can see.
  10. Wedderburn isn’t for me. Centre defence looks weak so presume one or two to come in there? And where do the Hibs loanees fit in?
  11. Always liked Forbes and based on that Edinburgh game, he still has it. Remember he scored a couple of cracking free kicks against us a few year ago. Guess this means we are a little closer to seeing the departure of Tapping.
  12. Another Lowland League player. Last brothers to play for Stenhousemuir?
  13. A rebrand. Find a home ground. If it wasn’t so serious it would be funny. The club is nothing. But it/he has engineered, somehow, a position of influence in Scottish football which is quite dangerous.
  14. So why not sign players north of Dundee? Train in Aberdeen? Appreciate it is not as simple as that but they will be an attractive proposition to players from the north east.
  15. Why would Brechin want to go to the Lowland? The Highland will be much easier to win. What am I missing?
