  1. From the Albion website, the price of adult admission has been cut to £5, all others free for the rearranged game on Tuesday night 7.45 pm kickoff. Looking for a big crowd on the night ! hopefully we might just get our first home win of the season fingers crossed with a bit of luck
  2. Think you will find it around about our average gate 500 or so, for this game.
  3. Can't see us getting anything from a poor Dunfermline side who have struggled despite being favourites to go up at the start of the season. All I can hope for is a decent performance and that we make a game of it. Prediction Dunfermline 2 Stirling Albion 1
  4. This Saturday we welcome Stranraer to Forthbank and once again we try to get our 1st home win of the season in the league. After 2 heavy defeats by the scores of 4-1 and 4-0, I think we will struggle against Stranraer and the best I think we can do is scrape a draw with a bit of luck. Now 11 points behind Stenny in last place we are almost down and out and unless a miracle happens its the basement for us next season. Only bright spot for Saturday is the home debuts of our 2 new loan signings Stirling and Cummins. Can the Albion surprise a few people and maybe bust a coupon or two well we can just hope. Prediction Albion 1 Stranraer 1
  5. Well I had hoped for a decent performance and a narrow defeat but another heavy defeat tonight and if Stenny win then the gap goes up to 11 points and a vastly superior goal deference. Relegation is now a certainty, let's start rebuilding for next season in League 2 now, get the younger players in and give them a run, can't get any worse can it ! , I hope not. Thursday meet the board night will be interesting, to say the least.
  6. After the Airdrieonians game I think the best we can hope for is an improved performance. Cant see us getting anything from this game but you never know. Overall Morton to win but Albion putting up a bit more of a fight I hope ! Prediction Morton 2Albion 0
  7. Didn't expect anything from this game and was proved right. Did not attend today and glad I was not there. From all accounts lucky to go in 1-0 up at halftime. Second half Airdrieonians found their scoring boots and we reverted to type, could have been more but Patterson had a couple of good saves to prevent a rout. We go to Morton on Tuesday night and again expect to get nothing from the game. Only consolation is that the points gap between ourselves and Stenny is still 8 points can we close this gap and overtake Stenny for the coveted 9th spot, I don't think so.
  8. Can`t really see as getting anything from this game tbh, 8 points behind Stenny with 11 games to go. Just hope we put in a decent performance and our defence which looked a lot more steadier last week against Brechin keeps up the effort. Prediction Airdrieonians 2 Albion 1
  9. Its all been said before poor game, Albion better team in the first half but could not put the ball in the net. Second half Brechin the better team but as luck would have it, they got the break with the penalty. Did not expect anything from this game and so it turned out.
  10. Of course their is, stranger things have happened we might just surprise Brechin you never know, our defence might just play a blinder and not concede
  11. This Saturday the Albion face Brechin at Forthbank in what can be described as another chance for the Albion to win our 1st home game off the season. After the shambles of the Ayr game, I really do not expect us to get anything from this game. Our defence once again proved why we are bottom of the League and headed for almost certain relegation unless a miracle happens. Given the facts also that our strikers have struggled to put the ball in the net as well it does not bode well for Saturday. Can we get our 1st home win of the season on Saturday I don`t think so and hope we at least make a game of it and put in a decent performance. Prediction Albion 1 Brechin 2
  12. I had high hopes for todays game but after 20 mins it was game over for us despite getting one back in the second half, so its goodbye to League 1 hello League 2 next season. Time to rebuild for next season and hope that Stuart and Martyn get the time to rebuild the team for the challenge of the League 2 next year.
  13. Have to disagree with it not being a 6 pointer, Albion MUST win this game and if we do it will cut the gap to 3 points with Ayr having a game in hand. If Ayr win then the gap widens to 9 points and with a game in hand. Could be make or break game for the Albion`s chances of survival in League 1, win and we have a fighting chance to stay up or at least get the 2nd bottom playoff spot, lose and I would think its goodbye League 1 hello basement again. Also we need to start winning at home and Saturday`s game with Ayr will be the ideal time to get our 1st home win of the season. it will be a close game imo with both sides not wanting to lose this one. Prediction Stirling Albion 2 Ayr 1
  14. It will be a difficult game for the Albion, Morton are on a roll after good wins over Dunfermline and Forfar. A thumping Morton win I hope not, we seem to lose games by the odd goal. Can we get something at Cappielow this Saturday I hope so but given our results over the last few weeks I expect a narrow Morton win. Prediction Morton 2 Albion 1
  15. Did not expect to get anything from this game but to lose a goal just 4 mins from the end is the pits. Just keeps on happening losing goals in the last few minutes, it just keeps killing us. One small comfort is that the gap between Ayr and ourselves is still 6 points. Away to Morton next week just need to pick ourselves up and hope we can get something from this match.
  16. I would like to think so but given the fact that Stranraer sit top of the table and the Albion sit bottom I wouldn`t put money on it. Can`t see us getting anything from this game to be honest given the fact that Chris Smith is suspended for this game and our defence cannot stop people scoring goals against us. One hope is that Lewis Coult is back from suspension and should start alongside Gordon Smith who surely cannot play any worse than against Forfar. If we stand any chance of getting something from this game we need to take the game to Stranraer and hope our defence can rise to the mark and keep a clean sheet for once. Famous last words as they say. Prediction Stranraer 2 Albion 1
  17. I think he is referring to the announcement that Angus Beith the player we have on loan from Hearts will stay with us to the end of the season.
  18. Not a good day for the Albion at Forthbank today. was hoping to get something from this game but we were dreadful, total lack of fight created nothing up front. The red card for Chris Smith was a joke, only thing I could think of was the referee deemed him to have brought down the man in a scoring position but the challenge was not worthy of anything but a yellow at best. Forfar were not much better but managed to put together a few chances and converted one of them to get the points. Worst performance I have seen under the reign of Stuart McLaren and given the fact we are now 6 points behind Ayr, if something does not change and we don`t start picking up points we are heading back to League 2 next season.
  19. According to the weather forecasts set to get a lot milder Thru/Friday/Saturday. Hopefully this will help thaw out the pitch. Would rather it be played on Saturday than on a Tuesday night in Feb/March.
  20. I`m quite sure Skippy and Martyn are trying but these things do take time. My priority would be to strengthen the defence first, then help for the midfield. As stated at meet the manager meeting ,money will be made available for the right people.
  21. This is a game we really need to get something from. WE must start to win at home and get the 3 points to cut the gap between ourselves and Ayr. 15 games to go, 45 points to play for. Can our defence keep a clean sheet for a change, I hope so but I won`t be surprised if we lose our customary 2 goals again. We are playing better since he arrival of Stuart McLaren but have not got the points from a number of games this season we deserve, lady luck seems to have deserted us, hopefully we get the break this Saturday against Forfar. Prediction Albion 2 Forfar 1 Here`s hoping
  22. Its going to be tough at Peterhead next week against a Peterhead team who are on form just now. Having Lewis Coult out will not help with Steven Doris injured but if we can play like we did against Dunfermline and get a bit of luck who knows we might just get a draw from this game. We are improving but have just been denied that little bit of luck getting stung with late equalisers in games like Ayr and Dunfermline. If we had held on we would be sitting on the same points as Ayr instead of being 4 points behind them. As they say it ain`t over until the fat lady sings and I think we have a fighting chance of survival in League 1 this season. Ayr and Stenny are not much better that us imo, we need to start winning games especially at home to make it.
  23. Have to disagree with your comments regarding the referee Crawford Allan, imo he gave nothing to the Albion but allowed a number of fouls by Dunfermline players to go unpunished before the sending off which I had a decent view off and imo it was a hard challenge nothing more and certainly did not deserve a red card. Coult was sent off by the combined actions of the West Stand linesman and the actions of the Dunfermline players who mobbed the referee.
