  1. I want Vale to stay up so, so, so much. Imagine the seethe.
  2. Good player as he's proved over the years and nothing against him but pound for pound one of the worst Shire signings of all time. Brought in on big wages as the marquee signing during our financial assualt on the LL but totally non existent in any game against a decent team. World class against the diddy teams, went hiding against the good ones.
  3. My thoughts on Nicky Low at the Shire are not suitable for a family podcast
  4. East Stirlingshire Soccer Club not turning up for a big game, well I never!
  5. The worlds largest car park is outside, you should be fine
  6. I can’t believe that people that post regularly on this don’t know this. When he does post though it’s always worth the wait hahaha
  7. We played Vale in our first ever LL game, they looked a decent outfit then. Spearheaded by Keith McLeod?? It was an ex Spartans striker if I remember. It’s a real shame what’s happened to them and I’m not a fan of the constant ridicule they get. it’s not their fault they’re in the situation that they are. Without teams like Vale the pyramid wouldn’t be what it is today. Yes, COVID has delayed their natural progression down but you can’t blame them for that. Good luck to the new coaching team, hopefully their appointment can spark an uplift in their fortunes and they can stabilise at their level. But only after they play us thank you very much.
  8. George Fraser and the Colts, your bhoys took one hell of a beating! Get the colts teams in the fucking bin.
  9. My younger brother must be talking shite then. Odaine Demar the centre half definitely played for both teams. He was playing on Friday. I think he’s an ex Jamaica u20 international or something. he said that all the other English players were the same ones that played for Gretna but maybe they’re different. Still a very cosmopolitan Fort William squad
  10. Urgh, woeful draw. Not really appealing for either set of fans
  11. I was at the Locos v Jeanfield game. The first game of fitbaw I’ve seen as a neutral in over 2 years and it was an interesting watch. Jeanfield brought up a really good and vocal support and the added noise of the chuff chuffs made it a very lively afternoon. It had the atmosphere of a cup tie. It was really enjoyable. Jeanfield cruised it. Locos were really really poor. IMO the Highland league is pretty dire, the cup results today sort of prove that. I’ve seen the shire play Huntley and bash them 4-1 and pump the locos 5-0 in the past few years, I think it is certainly high in reputation but low in quality. I don’t think locos managed to string 5 passes together without hoofing it long. Jeanfield played some really good stuff and scored 3 decent goals. Locos missed a penalty at 3-0 but doubt that would have made any difference. I certainly wouldn’t want to draw Jeanfield tomorrow. looking forward to the draw, hoping for a nice easy home tie or a mad away day.
  12. A lot of our games this year are largely forgettable. We have quality but only seem to be able to turn it on for 5/10 mins. Fort William were actually okay, I absolutely love the fact that their team was made up of the rejects that played with Gretna when we scudded them 9-1 a few years ago. But it’s the Scottish Cup and getting through it is all that matters. I would happily have a very winnable home tie next round. We can save the big away days for the 4th round. I wouldn’t turn down an away day at Stenny though haha.
  13. Awwwk East Stirlingshire Soccer Club, yous are such a tease. Actually making me believe that we aren’t a bunch of bottleless shitebags anymore. Back to square one.
  14. i've just about recovered from Saturday and almost in a coherent state to post about the game so here goes. I dont think there was much between the teams in all honestly. Was a pretty cagey game but shire took the lead through a penalty. A fair decision i think. Could count on one hand the amount fo chances in the first half. Connolly made one or two decent saves and the Shire nodded a close range header over the bar and spurned a two on one chance when a ball just had to be placed through and watson would've been one on one. Nothing was really happening in the second half until Dalbeattie were awarded a penalty, i thought it was a definite penalty but the ref waved it away only for the linesman to flag. At that moment i couldnt really see anything other than a draw. Star could've and in all honestly probably should've had another penalty but nothing was given then with ten to go Shire got into the lead. Watson chipped the goalkeeper before being wiped out, the ball bounced off the post and all Healy had to do was tap the ball home. Instead he took a dodgy touch that almost went out of play before sliding the ball home. Pandemonium behind the goals as the celebrations ensued. Connolly then made an outstanding one on one save to keep us in the lead before David Churchill rounded the keeper and scored. I honestly thought it was no where near over but those on the sidelines, including some locals said it was over so i'll take it. The scenes at the end of the game were brillaint. The players were serenaded off the park at the end, not a single shire fan left early and the players deserved every last chant and applause. After two years of watching some overpaid and frankly overrated dross it was good to watch a game with a shire team that really gave a f**k. They're not the best players obviously but there are some talented boys in there and they gave everything they had. Thats all you can ever ask. The only downside of the day was having to listen to those young inbred reprobates behind the goal. Star are a great club, the locals are nice and always very hospitable but listening to the homophobic tirades coming from that group behind the goal was very dissapointing. They're getting to the age now that someone will batter them sooner rather than later and I will not have any pity for them. That was my first Shire game in 22 months. I'm sure its been a tough time for us all but getting back to a game was great. I can't make as many anymore due to work and the cost of my drunken antics but travelling back to Dundee on Saturday night it was impossible not to have anything but sheer pride for my club. Hopefully we can carry the believe from Saturday onto the next few games. Ease Up Shire.
  15. Na fair fucks to them. I'm really chuffed the start they've made. The LL has become boring the past few years with all the money clubs occupying the top spots. This year all the so called favs have been dropping points and it's setting the season up to be a really interesting one.
