  1. 18 pages of opinion,conjecture ,accusations ,conspiracy theories and greeting. For what it's worth , until an antidote for Covid 19 can be developed we won't see any sport, social activity for a very, very long time. There are over 7 billion people on the planet and even if 0.01% of the population succum to the disease we've got a long way to go before we reach that level. I've followed football for over 60 years and frankly keeping my family safe is more important wondering did some club do this , for did not send that , pulled someone's chain. Perspective is what needed here.
  2. Top 6 = more money from gate receipts and SPFL which in turn helps club stability and provides a platform to plan for next season. I'm with Durnford, league a priority, cup run a nice little bonus.
  3. So, you cannot be in an offside position in your own half BUT can commit an offside offence in your own half if you come back to collect the ball having been offside in your opponents half? The games f*cked then. Try explaining that to the arse cheeks.
  4. Not entirely correct. You cannot be in an offside position in your own half only your opponents half . You can be penalised if you have moved from an offside position into your own half to collect the ball. The game should be restarted with an indirect free kick at the point where the offence was deemed to have taken place, your opponents half.

  6. To be fair to Dykes, the way we were set up meant that he had to win the ball and then try and create something from it. Midfield largely saw the ball go over their heads for a lot of the game and without support he was on a hiding to nothing. We are a far better team when we play the ball through midfield but to be fair to the Rangers they had our measure in that department . Games against them won't define our season , it's against St Mirren , Hamilton etc.
  7. Apart from the Rancid FC ticket allocation for games at Parkhead, how many seats are made usually available for away fans? How many away fans take up that full allocation? I guess that most clubs support would not fill the away end and that price is not the only reason this is the case, but would feature quite high on the list of reasons not to go. I agree that £25 to £30 plus is a rip off but I woul be pissed off if I had to pay £25 to go to see my team play at home and away fans paid £20. Something needs to be done but the economics of trying to keep a club like mine afloat dictate otherwise. At least we don't inflate prices for either yourselves or Rangers when they visit. Same price for all games home and away fans alike.
  8. Far too many misplaced or overhit passes today. When we do pass the ball on the deck we are a different side. Two wingers today in Souda and Stobbs , how many times did they get to byeline? Not convinced with Crawford, lot of running around but no end product. Spent a lot of time on his arse today. Get on phone to QoS and get Hamilton back,please. He might not be the answer to goal scoring probs but if we are going to persist with this long ball stuff he can support Dykes no bother.
  9. Looking at the state of that pitch, probably be better on paper.
  10. Lots of healthy debate on this topic. I started the thread because I dislike the loan system. The theory that you are/ maybe getting a better player in than you have on your books currently I think can be counter productive. In reality the only people the loanee wants to impress is his current bosses who will pay a substantial part if not all of their wages. It will also scunner the existing fringe staff who will see their first team chances diminish with each loan signing. is getting loan time at a lower division club who could be getting skelped each week, really helping development?
  11. Would there be better opportunity to develop players? would the standard of product on display improve/ decline? would we still be subjected to the same level dross each week? Discuss
  12. speculation so far, although these stories do seem to have legs i'll wait till it's announced on the OS .
