  1. Bobby Linn had a year at Ballingry. Probably making about 30 grand for himself. Before signing for us 

    More. I know 2 bit part players that were in that squad and they were making just short of that to get them from the League 2 clubs they were at and they said that Linn was on silly money compared to them.

    Can you tell us who the quality players are ? I know of Currie from his Berwick days but the rest ?

    Noticed a few players that I recognised from their re-signing list, but are they quality, I’m not sure and they are a few years older as well.

    Michael Andrews was also with Berwick and The Shire at this level, Dean Brett is well known from his time at Cowdenbeath and Neil Martynuik was at Edinburgh City and maybe even Hibs (???), other than that, I’m assuming that the rest are untried or didn’t get many appearance when they were at League 1 or 2 clubs.

    Yeah I have always liked Flanagan too he used to impress me. Pacey and direct although I feel like he’s massively underachieved, he seems to show flashes of brilliance in certain games but never actually carries it out through a season. 

    I think you have summed Flanagan up perfectly there. I went from being so excited to have him sign to not being fussy that he left, in less than 8 months. There’s definitely a fantastic player in there, but during his time at Stirling, he was anonymous most of the time, but you could see he was trying, it just wasn’t happening for him. 

  4. Just bought Tidelines tickets for St.Andrews. Absolutely love Robert Robertson’s voice, can’t wait to see them in a small venue!

    It is early days and I'd be surprised if DY wasn't working to fill some obvious gaps in his squad. A left back for starters. 

    Yip, huge hole there and one of those positions that we have struggled to fill over a number of years now. I wonder if that's one of those positions that will be filled by an SPL youngster on loan?? Time will tell, would be great to see Hancock return, but looking at the list of players on the PFA website or on the released list on here, there's nobody really jumping out at me, although there are a good number of players that I simply don't know.

    Is anyone else getting worried with the lack of signings? I'm probably over-reacting but hey-ho 

    No, can’t say I am. It’s still early days and it’s the deals that are done before the season kicks off that concern me, not where we are early June.

    The signings so far have been fine, the resigning have been ok as well, if DY needs to wait a few weeks to get his last few signings over the line then so be it, as long as we are ready to hit the ground running when the real stuff starts.

  7. Season Tickets now on sale

    Hope the £50 and Free season tickets can continue to attract more youngsters along, especially with the introduction of the Singing and Family sections.

    The Trust Board were elected and can be voted out by the members. If the members are not happy with the way things are going at least they have a choice unlike the Club Board who were a law unto themselves. 

    I’m well aware of that, but that’s not the point I am making. They still stuck 2 fingers up at their members by ultimately not putting it to a vote.

    The Trust will be having a vote on who the new Club Board will be following the interim situation.  That is something that has not occurred since the advent of fan ownership.   

    Yeah, but again, they stuck two fingers up at their membership by not having the vote on the proposal to remove Stuart Brown or the current board. I’m all forThe Trust board having a vote on the new Club Board, what I’m not for is the removal of the current board through a non-democratic process. Like Brexit and the Independence Referendum as an example, if it was the “will of the people” then I and many others, wouldn’t have had an issue.

    You can’t get away from it, it’s fact and the point I’m making. As they say in Scotland, you ken it, a ken it. The Trust board wanted rid of Stuart Brown so they made that decision, probably via some sort of loophole, regardless if the majority of members wanted it or not, therefore sticking 2 fingers up to the members, to use the phrase above.

  9. LG's new album was released at midnight - I haven't listened to all of it yet but so far it's been a disappointment. Some of the tracks are just weird. One plus point though is the song 'World's In Need' which is fantastic. It's definitely has a similar tune to U2's 'Desire.' 

    Disappointing to read after the standard of the last one. My music tastes have changed massively over the years, but I will always hold a candle for Oasis as that’s where it started for me, so wanted this to be another belter from LG
  10. Never been to the O2 Academy but as one of my favourite bands, Tedeschi Trucks  is coming in November I took the plunge.
    What”s the sound like as I have poor hearing?

    See you there, can’t wait! I’ve always found the O2 to be a good venue, except for the drinks price. You should have a great night
  11. What a beautiful guitar Rowsdower and I love your story. I’m going to start playing again, I just have bad luck with the teachers I’ve made contact with but I signed up for a GuitarTricks membership the other day and I’m hoping this is the answer
