  1. Multiple encouraging individual performances today, something we need to be having as a bare minimum if we are to be serious about challenging for the title. Graham has been outstanding since he joined, never mind so far this season, though Murray had his first really good game today as well. Foster was reassuring at the back, Sena was terrific and Williamson and Penrice really did well overlapping. Was worried that Cardle's booking for a dive [which was not a dive] might cause us some issues but glad that it did not. Finally, I thought we could have had another couple of penalties at least, in addition to East Fife's early free-kick probably being a penalty, a rather terrible officiating performance I must say.

    Ligue 1

    The draw for the round of 32 of the Coupe de France took place on the 6th and it brought out some interesting ties. JS St.-Pierroise's reward for winning at second tier Niort is a trip to 4th tier Epinal, certainly have a chance of winning that. PSG are away to Lorient, Bordeaux travel to third tier Pau, Marseille are at Granville, Lille travel to fifth tier Gonfreville, Strasbourg face Angouleme and Angers travel to Rouen, who will fancy putting another Ligue 1 side on their arse, There are two all Ligue 1 ties as Dijon host Nimes and Nantes host Lyon while there is an all-fifth tier tie between Prix-le-Mesiers and Limonest. Full draw: (Level of Division) Pau (3) v Bordeaux (1) Granville (4) v Marseille (1) Epinal (4) v St. Pierroise (Reu) Red Star (3) v Nice (1) Prix-le-Mesiers (5) v Limonest (5) Gonfreville (5) v Lille (1) Belfort (4) v Nancy (2) Paris FC (2) v Saint-Etienne (1) Angouleme (4) v Strasbourg (1) Nantes (1) v Lyon (1) Rouen (4) v Angers (1) Athletico Marseille (5) v Rennes (1) Montpellier (1) v Caen (2) Dijon (1) v Nimes (1) Lorient (2) v PSG (1) Saint-Pryve Saint-Hilaire (4) v Monaco (1)

    Ligue 1

    One more tie to finish up the round and it featured another shock as Rouen, plagued by financial problems in recent times, emptied Ligue 1 side Metz 3-0. Rouen were in Ligue 2 in 2003/04 but were relegated that season and the one after, they made it back to the third tier in 2013 but were again demoted three divisions due to financial problems. The DNCG, [the French taxman as it were] absolutely do not f**k about and are extremely stringent about their financial fair play.

    Ligue 1

    Marseille have ruffled a few feathers my keeping their share of the gate receipts instead giving all of it to their 4th division opponents, Trelissac. Goes against the traditions of the Coupe de France, the big teams always give all the money to the smaller one when they play away. That match between Trelissac and Marseille going to penalties was about as seismic as it got in the Coupe on Sunday, although Brest were beaten by Ligue 2 side Lorient - who are going great guns at the top end of the second tier. St. Etienne breezed past Bastia-Borgo from the third tier, Lille conceded two late goals at Raon but saw it out 3-2, Montpellie squaked through against sixth tier opposition 1-0, Angers beat Dieppe 3-1 and Dijon beat Valenciennes 2-1. PSG beat sixth tier Linas-Montlhery 6-0, but the hosts missed a penalty at 1-0 down and it could have been made interesting, a minute later Cavani scored to kill the tie. Cavani and Pablo Sarabia got two goals each with Adil Aouchiche and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting splitting the other two goals.
  6. Colin Weir done a lot of good, whether fans disliked those off the pitch that he associated with, we need to think of the bigger picture. I remember some time ago being told by a friend who was then a volunteer at the club that Scottish Power were up at the club offices demanding we not use the floodlights for a pre-season friendly against Bristol Rovers because we were that fucked. We went from that to finishing in the top six in the top flight and began a culture of youth development that we couldn't quite do for some time owing to the previous board's running up debts. We owe our modern existence to Colin Weir.

    Started a game with Stenhousemuir, ended up in a Betfred Cup group with Hearts, Alloa, Brechin and Cove. Surprisingly won 5-1 at Alloa in the first match, followed up with a loss on penalties to Cove at home following a 1-1 draw. We were then thumped 3-0 at Hearts before finishing the group off with a 4-0 home win over Brechin. Botti Biabi and Ryan Blair are cheat codes at this level, miles ahead of the level I am at. Followed that positivity up with a 2-1 defeat at Albion Rovers on the opening day in League Two. Cheers lads.
  8. Interesting, as Bury FC haven't been liquidated, it could be a means of allowing Bury a route back into the pyramid.
  9. You can talk to any player with six months or less on their contract, IIRC.
  10. The final round of fixtures in the Brazilian top flight were last night and there was a tussle between the giants of Cruziero and unfancied Ceara for the final relegation place. Ultimately, Ceara held out, drawing 1-1 at Botafogo while Cruzeiro slumped to a 2-0 defeated at home to Palmeiras, meaning that they will be relegated to Serie B for the first time in their history. Ultimately a very pitiful season for Cruzeiro, who only scored 27 goals in their 38 games and had begun the season as one of the top picks for qualification to the Libertadores. But their season collapsed after their exit from the competition and now they are down. A great article from last wee by the great Tim Vickery on how they ended up in this state is available here - https://www.espn.co.uk/football/cruzeiro/story/4005062/cruzeiros-swift-slide-from-brazilian-championship-favorites-to-relegation-candidates?src=com
  11. 4-2-3-1 Bryn Halliwell; Greg Shields, Gabriel Piccolo, Niall Keown, Jake Carroll; Bryan Hodge, Scott Robertson; Ryan Stevenson, Jack Storer, Antonio German; Jim Hamilton Had to think hard but Keown hasn't found a club since he left us and unike Devine in that he has gone on to be a dependable starter at Championship level, Jack Storer was an embarrassment and I had left the ground before Antonio German's sole appearance in a pumping at Motherwell. Stevenson was an expensive flop, scored a few goals but largely disappointed to the point I felt he should be included. Took Halliwell over Bell based purely on the embarrassment that was that defeat to Stirling Albion at Forthbank which prompted Ian McCall to go out and sign Scott Fox.

    Off to a relatively unspectacular start with Thistle. Could do with winning games that aren't against Alloa Athletic, however.
