  1. We’ve certainly got the ingredients to be a deadly attack for this level, unfortunately the consistency hasn’t been good enough. That’s why Cove are top of the pile because players like Megginson and Mcallister have made careers of being consistent and reliable frontmen. I’d be lying if I said Simon Murray has had anywhere near the impact I hoped from him this season. He had a tremendous first month winning league 1 player of the month but he’s been absolutely miles off it since then. I’ll always admire the way he tries to play each game, which is always 100% but I think the continuation of missing several clear goalscoring opportunities each game has really dented his confidence. The big one for me which will help us for the rest of the season is Jai Quitongo returning from injury. An absolute flying machine down the wing and we’ve missed him greatly this season. Buzzing to see him back on the pitch very soon
  2. Aye that’s them. Liam Brown is an outstanding footballer, very lucky we’ve got him tied on a 3 year deal as I’d imagine a number of big teams will already have him shortlisted for the future. There’s not a doubt in my mind that he’ll be playing in the spl within a few years, especially if he can add goals to his game.
  3. That was absolutely phenomenal viewing. We were outstanding in every area of the park and witnessing some Falkirk fans leaving early was extra pleasing. If today doesn’t show Ellis what Charlie Fox is about then I’ll never know. The big man was absolutely outstanding today and his general presence made the likes of Robson and Morrison look a lot more comfortable. Fair play to Jake Davidson aswell, a tremendous performance at right back and it was pleasing to see a full back link play so effectively, which as much I like the guy, is something that Michael Doyle severely lacks in his game. Midfield had everything; Energy, bite and most importantly the quality. I don’t mind Thompson playing in these types of games where your primary role is to break up play and let the others do the business, it’s when we play the likes of Clyde and East Fife that he’s generally not much use. Brown was absolutely levels above anyone on the pitch and it was even more pleasing to see him add to his goals tally. Something that generally lacks from his game. Easily my man of the match. Connell put in a power of work today and although he may not be the quickest, that left foot is a match winner. Front three were superb and special mention to Louis Longridge. First time as captain today and he puts in a superb captain’s performance. Full of running, energy and moments of magic. He seems to have gained a consistency now that may have lacked throughout his career but he’s showing his quality in abundance this season. My player of the year so far for us I can’t praise the team without mentioning how dire Falkirk are though. Guys like Nesbitt, Telfer, Morrison and Mcdaid are generally very good technical footballers but there’s literally no character about that side. The defence was utterly chronic and the boy Lemon at centre back looked like he was dragged from the pub to play the game. Comical errors all over the place that wouldn’t even be accepted at Sunday league level. Serious issues throughout the whole club and surely Sheerin is gone by tonight
  4. Obviously I’ve only seen Falkirk twice but there’s not a hope in hell that defence gets you in the playoffs at this rate. The left centre half for you today produced quite comfortably the worst performance I’ve seen in a long long time. Morrison you can tell is a good player in a shocking set up but cove, airdrie, Montrose and ourselves are stronger at this point in time
  5. Being utterly hoaching at winning or even seeing out games of football with a full time set up since August is not healthy. There’s legitimate reasoning to question his job security as manager. I want him to succeed like any manager involved at the club but there’s no genuine sign of improvement so you’re gonna need to deal with myself and other fans questioning his capabilities for the time being unfortunately
  6. Would it be too far to suggest that whoever loses on Saturday, the respective manager might get the sack ? A defeat here surely puts the final nail in the coffin for either Ellis or Sheerin
  7. I’d of even kept Ross Maclean over Moore and Longstaff. Bitterly disappointing recruitment regarding the wingers A shame for Smith as I don’t think he’s a natural winger. His first 4-5 games, he played in between the midfield and strikers and looked terrific. Now he’s been punted out wide and looks half the player. Definitely more than capable if used properly
  8. What’s the thinking of the squad with January fast approaching ? Wholesale changes or very minimal ? I think with Ellis in charge or not by that point, I think there definitely will be a few moves both in and out as there are certain players who have underperformed massively so far Callum Yeats seems to have provided very little competition to Tommy Robson despite a number of questionable defensive performances Darren Lyon seems to have disappeared entirely Charlie Fox seems to have been made the scapegoat under Ellis Luis Longstaff has flattered to deceive massively. With Jai Quitongo’s long awaited return on the horizon, I would not be surprised to see his loan cut short if there’s no sign of improvement or general output Lewis Moore has done hee haw Jack Thompson’s loan ends at the start of January and quite frankly I wouldn’t be in a rush to extend it Those are realistically the players I’d say that are at most risk of being replaced in the coming weeks. With 3 crucial fixtures approaching, a lot might change but I’d suspect the above names won’t change much
  9. Yesterday all but confirmed what Ellis thinks of Fox. To pick Davidson who looked massively short of fitness(understandably) suggests that he’s not favoured anymore. We all know Fox is the best centre half at the club. Something must of happened and I’d be more surprised if Fox was a qp player once January is passed
  10. Will Ellis ever tell a player to be on the line for corners? Yet another soft corner conceded. A shame really as we’ve been really good across the half
  11. What ? I didn’t speak to the coach, I just commented to Fox that he should play each week and he just shrugged his shoulders as if he didn’t understand why
  12. “Both signed by Ellis” quite clearly a suggestion that you’re insinuating that Ellis was the influential figure in brining Connell to QP ? Sometimes realising you made a mistake provides a strong alternative that benefits the club. I don’t doubt he’s a good coach but his role in the qp management role might quite overwhelming at this point. We should of appointed someone that knew how to keep the Playing side on track, whilst off field matters are dealt with
  13. Genuinely astounds me that he doesn’t play. I shouted over at full time that should be playing every week and he shrugged his shoulders as if he didn’t know why he wasn’t playing Quite clearly the best defender at the club and one of the best in the league IMO
  14. Well quite clearly Connell isn’t a find from Ellis? McKinnon identified him so you’re quite wrong. I’ve been willing to give the guy a chance but he’s not up to it. He’s had a number of games to prove himself and quite clearly he’s not up to it. Your tone suggests that it’s quite harsh to criticise Ellis? I may be mistaken but it’s quite fullly justified, he’s been an utter shambles. Has one way of playing and he’s proved to have no plan B. To have Simon Murray, Luca Connell etc at league 1 level, we should be doing so much better. Nothings won on paper in football, but the way we’re going, Ellis can swiftly leave
  15. On the game, other than Connell goal and a Liam brown opportunity, we did the square root of nothing. We looked fairly settled the first half but the way we played that 2nd half was an embarrassing spectacle. We were 2nd to every ball, created zero chances and made Peterhead to look more the full time team playing. There’s full justification on Ellis being sacked but some of the players have got to look at themselves in the mirror. Murray has been utter garbage for 3 months and for the wage he’s on, he plays like he doesn’t give one bit about the team im not the biggest Bob mchugh fan but to drop him today was ridiculous. He’s arguably been our best performer the past month and he ended up being dropped?? Ridiculous from Ellis and those are the decisions that should quite rightly result in him getting the sack. He’s quite simply not ready and not capable of this job. Well done Dempster
