  1. I understand Scott Gallacher has another year to run.
  2. I’m sure there are Celtic fans with a soft spot for the Rovers and given how many times we’ve all heard the **** without bus tickets line, I don’t think it’s fair to suggest those that go along regularly are anything other than Rovers fans. It shouldn’t be a rivalry.... our traditional rival was obviously Motherwell, but having established ourselves as a League 1 club it’s all we’ve had as a derby recently. One of the best periods in their history combined with one of the worst in ours to ensure it was more even than we would have liked. Including an utter humiliation at Cliftonhill. They won’t go finish last this year, Berwick will. Teams like East Kilbride, Spartans and Cove will offer a lot more to the league than some of the traditional teams. They are very ambitious and well funded. If Berwick go down I can’t see any return for them save an investor coming on board. That’s probably healthy for the lower leagues but it’s sad to lose traditional league members.

  4. Reminded me of Ronaldo’s goal v Athletico the other week and might have been over but Camera angles (including the go pro in the back of the Airdrie net) tell you nothing other than that his back foot was quite far behind the line. Disappointed Alba didn’t fund Hawkeye TBH
  5. I used to be on the Trust Board and remember vividly Bob Reid shooting down something I said by reminding me that the Trust was set up to try and make sure there would always be a football club. I’d need to understand what exactly they’d asked the journalist (presumably Mark Pirie) to run before I could judge. They are volunteers and have achieved a massive amount from a standing start. I’m saddened we’ve come to this point and really don’t see any future at the minute. To your call for them to resign, if they do, we’ll be left with no trust, which would be a further nail in the coffin for Airdrieonians IMHO. The apathy is astounding at present and I think the onus has to be on the Board to come out with a vision on how we turn things round and what they would like to see the fans (and the trust) contribute to that. You seem to be very well informed and so you can relay to the board that I’m happy to give them a platform to do that through the podcast.... might get more than 120 listens next month that way 🤪
  6. Airdrie need to win to have any chance of 4th and Stenny need the 3 points. Hopefully leads to an entertaining game but after last week I wouldn’t be confident in that. Predict a squeaky 1 nil for Airdrie [emoji815]️

  8. CHAMPIONSHIP Play Off Run in

    Can’t see us doing it but East Fife’s form is howling and Montrose have arguably the toughest run in. Hoping for a Montrose win on Saturday to put it back in our own hands for at least 2 and a half hours [emoji85]
  9. Monthly podcast up. Managed to record in person and had a few new voices as part of a squad rotation system as we push for the playoffs. Let us know what you think. Also, ladies team struggling to find funding. If you can afford to, please chuck something into the Go Fund Me for them [emoji815]️ https://www.gofundme.com/otl-podcast-soundcloud-costs
  10. Airdrie vs. East Fife

    Probably why it says Audio Stream then!
  11. Airdrie vs. East Fife

    Is getting the game for £2 not like to stop people going?
  12. They got a mention on the last Podcast Danny [emoji38]
  13. Airdrie vs. East Fife

    Feel like we need to win this one. Wouldn’t be a total shock if Montrose beat Arbroath given present form of both. Very little in this league. East Fife we’re up against Raith until the dying stages so I’m expecting a tough game and hoping (rather than expecting) that we can do enough. As you said, squeaky bum time!
  14. Dombarton vs Airdrie

    Back to the top. Airdrie’s form has picked up since the postponement and Dumbarton’s has faltered. 3 draws in the league so far this year. Both teams desperate to win this one and neither set of fans likely to be confident!
