  1. Surprised the trust lasted as long. And surprised by the lack of scrutiny from the fans as to what's going on. The vision of a consortium with wide shoulders and the welfare of the club front and centre has been destroyed from within. I'm not in the know. But what is clear is PH is no team player. He will get his way whatever it costs. The main question now is what happens to the tens of thousands of pounds the trust and others spent buying Wotherspoon's shares.
  2. We all know Stenny have been a bogey team, and there is no doubt this result will be scrutinised from the boardroom down. Too early in the campaign for the manager's job to be at risk, but the investment the directors have put in is likely to mean there will be a lack of patience. The depth of squad is great, but it seems to be compounding the fact that the dugout don't seem to have settled on what the best starting eleven is. Maybe its a case of horses for courses and we field personnel to suit the opponents. But that didn't seem to be the case against either Forfar or Montrose. A scrappy win will buy some breathing space. Anything less and the dugout may be starting to look over their shoulders. I hope Cairns retains his place, Millar is back and Stewart is given a seat on the bench. Also, O'neill may provide some pace and width, sadly lacking of late.
  3. Forfar versus Airdrie

    oops, my mistake
  4. This was the opening fixture of last season coincidentally, and most Airdrie fans expected nothing. In fact we were lucky to be able to put a team on the park. Fast forward twelve months and its a much different picture. Whole new progressive boardroom, strength, depth and experience on the park. A decent pre-season and a cautiously optimistic support. Airdrie expect a play off as a minimum this term, and many are now hoping for a title challenge. I go 1-2 to the diamonds, with a goal each for Duffy and Carrick. P.S. I hope Forfar have cut that stupid hedge. Needed a good prune last time I was up there.
  5. Airdrie v Stranraer

    As poor a game as I care to remember, but a vital three points. Thought we played better against East Fife and lost. Just goes to show. What, I don't know right enough.
  6. East Fife v Airdrie

    Another match spoiled by the conditions. Airdrie should have been 4-1 up but poor finishing and a lack of concentration in defence costs us badly yet again. Was the least effective I've seen Carrick, not helped by consistently over hit crosses. Keystone cops stuff for East Fife's first goal too. Interesting that Luke Watt seems to have disappeared off the radar. The next three games are critical. Nine points and we can breathe easy, any less and we will have to keep looking over our shoulder.

    What a bleak world you live in

    Scott Stewart's new contract is a major advance in my opinion. For years we've become used to losing anyone who shows potential at the first opportunity. That players like Scott are prepared to commit to the club now is extremely encouraging. If we can add a few (central defence and creative midfielder) then I think we are in with a serious shot for promotion next term.
  9. One of these weeks it's going to click. Hopefully it'll be this week.
  10. Raith Rovers v Airdrie

    A point for Airdrie would be considered a success here. A lot of new faces but the side is still settling and this will be a big test. Renewed optimism for the long term but not expecting too much from Saturday.
  11. Fascinated to see how this game goes. A different look to our squad with Furtado departing and the new boys coming in. Will be really interested to see what we do with the keeper. Still think we are a centre half away from a decent side, but if we have any aspiration then this is the kind of game we should be winning. Will also be intrigued to see what the crowd is. The last home game attendance was swollen by Ayr fans, Arbroath wont bring any significant numbers...

    It's an invite to get involved instead of making false accusations. Nothing else.
  13. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Perhaps you'd like to step forward and spend countless hours away from your family having protracted negotiations with megalomaniacs and shysters? The accusation of a clique is an excuse by lazy critics who'd rather sit on the sidelines and snipe than do anything constructive to help. The door has always been open. Come and speak to us on Thursday and we'll get you involved.

    there's no way to answer all the questions people may or may not have in a statement. thats why a meeting has been called. plans can be presented and questioned and answered without all the speculation we've recently witnessed.
