  1. Saturday had last seasons 3-0 Ayr game feel to it, hopefully it’s just a one off.
  2. 23 fouls in a match isn’t excessive but I’m sure you already know that.
  3. I didn’t really think Arbroath are considered a dirty team, in fact wasn’t it only the last time we were at Raith one of their players put themselves out for the season for smashing Mckenna very cynically, even at our level.
  4. He would’ve needed to be close to players or the ball for this to happen so naturally I’m sceptical going by today’s game.
  5. Agreed if we can get to that level, no complaints. Commentators did well with some club trivia too.
  6. That’s the worst we have been for a long time. Genuinely surprised by Raith fans praising that Duku boy like, thought he didn’t get a kick all game. Funny old game I suppose, all about opinions.
  7. A total collapse which hasn’t been something we are used to, missing Hammy badly. Don’t understand why we are just hoofing the ball back to Raith at every opportunity.
  8. Match day, coincidentally we played Ross County 19 years ago to the day today in one of my favourite seasons; Arbroath 2-1 Ross County A brace from Andy Cargill sealed Arbroath's third consecutive home win and lifted them off the bottom of the table. Veteran defender Brian Irvine pulled one back and Steve Hislop twice came close to equalising. But it is Ross County who dropped to the bottom of Division One. Jim Mercer and Stevie Mallan were both out injured for Arbroath, but Colin McKinnon returned to the side. County manager Neale Cooper had three players missing. Pounced on a mistake Richard Hastings and second-choice goalkeeper Ramirez Gonzalez were both injured, while Sean Webb was away on international duty. Former Forfar man Cargill opened the scoring after 43 minutes, finishing off a well-worked move. Cargill then notched his second seven minutes after half-time when he pounced on a mistake by County goalkeeper Tony Bullock to fire home. The visitors did pull a goal back in the 65th minute when Irvine powered home a header from a Hugh Robertson corner. County then threw everything at Arbroath and Hislop was denied by a fine save from Craig Hinchcliffe. In the closing stages, Hislop was inches wide with a header from a Mark Arbroath: Hinchcliffe, Tait, Florence, Rowe, Ritchie, McKinnon, Brownlie, Cargill, Bayne, McGlashan, McInally. Subs: Cusick, Heenan, Arbuckle, Gardner, Wight. Ross County: Tony Bullock, Perry, Fraser, Maxwell, Irvine, Dlutonski, McCormick, Ferguson, Bone, Hislop, Robertson. Subs: Mackay, Boukkra, Cowie, Prest, Shearer. Referee: G Thomson.
  9. This analogy is nothing even remotely similar to your local football team trying to make ends meet in the middle of a once in a generation global pandemic though, not to mention generally ran by volunteers.
  10. Thomson mentioned a new deal in his interview, did I imagine Donnelly had a new deal too?
  11. So......anyway, 2 wins out of 2. A derby win. And another class goal by TOB, it’s wasn’t all bad then.
  12. Would probably agree once I got used to a view more akin to what I’m used to at Gayfield, it was nice just to see the game. Thought it was decent of Mike to come and explain the circumstances at half time too.
  13. Not arsed about a refund but the right thing that it’s been offered.
  14. At least mount it on top of Luke Donnelly’s head.
