  1. For those that can't make it, will there be a live stream?
  2. 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.
  3. Noticed what looked Ciaran Summers in training with Stirling.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. We’ve signed another player. Darren Christie. He was on loan at Annan last season and I recall he got some very good reviews.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. Another Lowland League player. Last brothers to play for Stenhousemuir?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Why would Brechin want to go to the Lowland? The Highland will be much easier to win. What am I missing?
  17. I confess that I have not the faintest idea what is going on with this club which says everything. BSC = Broomhill Social Club but am I right in saying that they actually have no connection to Broomhill Social Club now? Nor do they have any connection to Glasgow. So what exactly is the point of this “club”? It is situations like this that make an absolute mockery of the pyramid. This club is one mans play thing. They have no connection to any community. They don’t have a ground of their own. And they don’t have any supporters. What do they/he bring to Scottish football, apart from providing the Old Firm Colts a back door entry to the Scottish leagues, something the lower league clubs and their FANS have been battling against since the idea was first floated. Congratulations to Kelty today, but imagine if it was BSC Glasgow taking the place of Brechin City, or any other established community lower league club. Honestly, how would that be for the good of Scottish football? They are a sham of a club and are everything that is wrong with the pyramid.
  18. This is ridiculous now. Understand we would sign their “best” players, but we are signing the entire squad of a middle of the road Lowland League team. If they were all up to playing at this level then they wouldn’t have been playing Lowland League. We seem to be putting a helluva lot of faith in a complete unknown. And what about our scouting system. Are we saying that all these BSC players were on the radar and identified as signing targets before Swift came along. I have the fear.
  19. Fair to say that Swift is building a Lowland League select. I for one am a little apprehensive.
  20. Do Brechin have 250 season ticket holders? I'd have thought that they maybe had c100 full season ticket holders. Is that reasonable? If so it means that they would each have to bring 1.5 kids to get to 250. How many of the 100 have 1.5 kids. And even if they do, would the kids want to go to the game (my child hates football for example). Am I missing something? By restricting to season tickets how are they going to get to 250?
  21. Just listened to the Stranraer podcast where Thomas Orr confirmed he is signing for Stenhousemuir. Certainly looked like a good player based on what I have seen of him.
  22. Brechin still in it which I wasn’t expecting after that first half.
  23. Alan Docherty has signed for Linlithgow where Bomber is the manager
