  1. Been away for a few days and lacked P/B link but I can't remember if I was at that game but given how few I have missed, I will claim it.
  2. Getting in early so I can move up the overall table (Not) Clyde 3 Peterhead 0 Cove Rangers 1 Partick Thistle 1 Dumbaton 0 Airdrie 1 Falkirk 2 East Fife 2 Forfar 1 Montrose 1
  3. The opening clip: Douglas Ross being subliminally backed by SkY TV?
  4. As Andy Walker always says if you feel a touch you go down and give the Ref a decision to make. Beaton made it. Great to have debate on decisions and no VAR.
  5. The third question : I saw the Ref award a foul when the goalie's KO from hand was blocked in Arbroath game on Friday night. I think that is the rule now but although there are 17 Laws of football there must be hunners of rules so no wonder we can all get mixed up. Offsidekick being taken in your own half because you came back from being offside in their half, this caused a few crowd shouts then.
  6. The first goal is onside in the modern game as Graham is not active as Gordon goes through, and Thomson is clearly playing Gordon on. Graham is also behind Kerr as the pass is made- a well timed run does the job. What seems strange is that Sean Crighton was in the middle of the pitch as Thistle sprang the move, and Graham was left alone. Thistle scored when they had that good spell and all our huffing and puffing was feckless.
  7. Hard to tell from a TV screen whether the 2 referee decisions were merited, but Kyle McDonald ought to have stopped what became a great shot by Spittal. We did have good possession in the first half and seemed to be getting plusses from both wings, even if it was from direct play rather than stylish football. Currie did save us from going behind but I think we deserved the opening goal from a good move and cross by Crighton. Had we gone in 1 up at half time it would have kept the edge. Thistle took a lot from that and we were well out of the game for that spell before they went 2 up. Taking Sabatini off to move McKay back into midfield tells me that Paul is undroppable and it was a mistake as it let Thistle dominate for a while. It was only long throws by Connell and humping into the box which dragged us back in. Their goalie did make a great save from Thomson and we might have got that equaliser but a killer touch is lacking. Interested to see Murray berating the Ref at the end so maybe a sense of injustice will help next week. It was typical of what L1 games will be and a sign of how tough it will be-the only team to take the lead and lose because we needed a 2nd. Much better TV stream so well done Thistle. Cheers

At least my takeaway curry left no bad aftertastes as the result did.
  9. Listening to it in stages whilst a boring Arbroath game is on ( just conceded a goal so excitement at last) . The analysis of where we are has been much to my liking , and I agree about the lack of a scoring edge from open play will be significant. What seemed to be missing amongst all the player assessment was the enigma that is Paul McKay ( I don't recollect his name coming up, and it was around 28 mins when Alan mentioned the long throw) I want see a 4-4-2 but he is not one of the two. As to Firhill memories one of my favourites was when Steven McKenna in taking a corner, actually kicked the flag out. We a also rarely scored in many of our recent trips so let's hope Saturday is better. I have now linked on to Andy's blogs and they are very good reading, as is OTL
  10. Roofe crashes in on Liege. A tremendous TV moment.
  11. It's a few years since I did Culter Fell but they are on a par: As I remember it the path on Tinto stands up better to wetness whereas Culter was a bit more grassy,
  12. There is a good land rover walk of about an hour and half to Dunfin fort from Cnoc Doil, which is about 5 minutes out of Brodick to Lamlash Rd ( with a car) on the left hand side. You can just about turn, or there is a forest path down to another land rover track which rises to bring you back to the start. Again about an hour's walking. Good views of Holy Island etc. Enjoy
  13. The theatre of dreams indeed: maybe that's why we had a Pavillion? It is a good PPV from Thistle and I hope I can still be as relaxed during the game. Take care
  14. We did this about a year ago. There is a reasonable carp parking spot. The walk is obviously level and it can be a wee bit wet if there has been lots of poor weather . It is worth it as the Sone circles are impressive as are the views to the north. Nice wee round trip of an hour+. I do have some photos but will need to get from PC.
