  1. This Saturday weather permitting we entertain Albion Rovers at Forthbank. Important game for both teams, for the Rovers bottom of the table adrift of the 2nd bottom team Berwick by a number of points they have to try and get something against the only team they have beaten this season in the League the Binos . For the Binos its vital we get the points to continue our recent run of unbeaten games and pick up the 3 points to hopefully move us closer to the teams above us Queens Park and Cowdenbeath. While the Rovers have improved I cant see anything but a Binos victory here. Prediction Binos 3 Albion Rovers 0
  2. Stirling Albion Thread

    Or could it be that that Albion fans were making a Political statement that in the biggest City in Scotland that their are still many areas of social deprivation where large numbers of people require the use of Foodbanks due to the Tory austerity cuts ?
  3. Refreshments

    Was at a previous Stirling Uni Cup Tie at Fortbbank no pies for sale but only hot drinks for sale tea coffee etc. Why don`t the Uni approach the Albion`s caterers Clark and Drummond to see if they can take over the catering for them. All the facilities are their at Forthbank to use.
  4. Queen's Park v Stirling Albion

    Agreed it wont cure the problem bit it will improve out defence. Hopefully we get a ball winning in the air Centre Half in the January transfer window .
  5. Queen's Park v Stirling Albion

    Though we were lucky to get a point today, first half Queens were the better team for most of this half and might have scored more than 1 goal. I agree with you regarding Banner today at right back he was given the run around by Queens No7 who had the beating of him for most of the game. Fortunately for us the KING scored again and with him we would have went in a goal down at halftime. Second half we started to get into the game and managed to create some chance but even down to 10 men late on , Queens were comfortable. A point gained imo but it could have been nothing. Hopefully we get Lee Hamilton back soon from injury and move McGeachie to right back to replace Banner.
  6. Camelon Juniors 2018-19

    Good luck today to the Mighty Mariners in their Cup Final today at Lockerbie against Bonnyton Thistle, hopefully they will win and get into next years Scottish Cup.
  7. Queen's Park v Stirling Albion

    Don't think Barr will be missed much, problem with him he was injured more than not, plus remember we have Lee Hamilton to still come back, hope in 3 or 4 weeks. Banner should be used in Central Defence rather than at right back like last week against Elgin. Ross MacGeachie should be in at right back, prefer him their rather in Central Defence. At yes thank god we have the KING back in attack scored 2 last week in his first real start of the season and he can only get better
  8. Queen's Park v Stirling Albion

    First visit of the season to Hampden for a Stirling side that is moving in the right direction since KR took over and that direction is UP . Difficult game against a Queens side who beat us in the Cup and will fancy their chances on Saturday. Hope the resurgence continues under KR and we come away from Hampden with something for our troubles , fancy we might just sneak it providing we DONT play like we did in the first 20 minutes or so against Elgin. Prediction Queens 1 Albion 2
  9. The Binos v Elgin City

    Good win for us today feared the worst after 20 mins by going 2-0 down but in the past we would have rolled over and lost this one but NOT under KR, we just dug in and to be 3-2 up at halftime speaks volumes for our team spirit just now. 2nd half Elgin had a couple of chances but we held firm and the sending off helped us to gain control of this game and the 4th goal by Darren Smith summed up our day and it was made better by a sweet turn and shot by Dominic Docherty to make it 5-2 . Great team performance today after a poor start in the first 20 minutes, though the 1st Elgin goal was a tad offside but will have to see the highlights to make sure.
  10. The Binos v Elgin City

    Yes out injured not expected to be fit until after Xmas, same with Lee Hamilton. Hopefully when we get both back it will strengthen the squad in the run in to the Playoffs
  11. The Binos v Elgin City

    Hopefully the Board will loosen the purse strings and give KR the money to get the players he wants in to get us back in contention for a playoff spot. We might need to move on a couple of players to free up wages for this to happen, expect as you say MacDonald could be one to move on, regarding Stewart did he not sign a 2 year contract ? If I’m right can’t see him getting moved on unless we are prepared to throw a lot of money at him to leave.
  12. The Binos v Elgin City

    Hopefully just a precaution due to the distances involved for the traveling Elgin Team. Fingers crossed it goes ahead weather forecast is good, no rain forecast for the afternoon, gives the pitch a chance to dry out.
  13. The Binos v Elgin City

    Could be worth a punt at least till the end of the season imo but I would hope we get Dylan Mackin signed up when his contract runs out in Jan, he`s the player we have needed up front since the departure of Jordan White.
  14. After the break its back to League business at Forthbank when we entertain Elgin City in their 2nd visit to Forthbank in a week. Hopefully we will maintain the resurgence under KR and get the 3 points to move us further away from Albion Rovers at the bottom and hopefully overtake Berwick 1 point in front of us. Quietly fancy our chances of getting the win on Saturday and a good performance to go with it. Prediction Binos 2 Elgin 0
  15. Annan Ath v The Binos

    Good point away to Annan, after a poor first half Annan deserved to go in front 1-0. Second half KR made 2 changes off went Barr and Horne to be replaced by Banner and Hughes for the start and it seemed to work we started to get into the game and we were rewarded by a great touch by Dylan Mackin to score to make it 1-1. Unfortunately for us Annan then got a 2nd goal and it looked like we were heading for a another defeat at Galabank before Dominic Docherty hit a great strke to earn us a share of the points but it was close at the end Annan might have scored bar a great save from Cammie Binnie to get us a share of the points. Was quite happy to come away from Galabank with a point against a good Annan side who on previous Albion visits to Galabank would have taken all 3 points. Next game is at home in 2 weeks time to Elgin and we need to make sure we get all 3 points on that occasion.
