  1. Your last comment was what several of our fans said after our relegation last season and look how that’s turned out. Be careful what you wish for, that’s all.
  2. Dombarton vs Airdrie

    Christ. That’s absolutely harrowing. I’d rid my mind of that shambles. Now you’ve brought it up that’s hundreds of pounds in therapy down the drain. Thanks.
  3. Stranraer v Dumbarton

    I’d be more confident about us getting something from the Nou Camp than Stranraer.
  4. Arbroath vs Stranraer

    Well that sounds like a farce. Again it’s the fans who are left counting the cost. Embarrassing and shambolic decision to start the game by the sounds of it. Feel for those who made the trip, particularly the Stranraer fans, that’s a big journey for that to happen. Safe travels home to those who’d made the journey, both sets of fans.
  5. Airdrieonians v Dumbarton

    The time-wasting thing really grates on me. It happens and it’s streetwise of a team to do it when it suits. Had we done it against Alloa when Liam Burt had the ball, we wouldn’t be in the shambles we currently find ourselves.

    Is anyone down the fish counter watching out for word on our bundles of new signings we’ll be getting this week? Maybe? Please?🤪
  7. Sons' sorrow

    I’d certainly take a postponement as it stands. I know the issue of Saturday/Tuesday/Saturday etc would rear it’s head at a later date, but by then we might actually have enough players to field 11 from the start. Others will disagree I’m sure, with the issue of hospitality ‘hot’ I appreciate, but squad quality and depth has to be paramount and further time to achieve that before our next game would be welcome.

    I’m more annoyed about the line ‘the reason for Aitken’s downfall’ when mentioning Dumbarton’s injury list. Without wanting to go over old ground, that wasn’t the ‘reason’. It was a factor but that’s all, several other reasons were more critical in his removal. Anyway, anyone seen Froxy at Morrison’s yet?

    ‘Mon hame, Thommo.
  10. Sons' sorrow

    I’d love to have your optimism (pun intended!) but how are we financing any squad changes? Are there any of our squad we’re going to be able to ship out to free up budget for an in?

    I see your point but if we never see Rory Loy in a Sons jersey again then that's a big issue. He's on a two year deal so if he's not going to play, he's going to be spend 18 months of a 24 month contract not playing but being paid handsomely for it. That's not good. I still hope we can see some good from him at some stage. Who knows when that'll be though, or if. Does anyone know the extent of his injury or what physio or rehab he's going through to try and fix the issue?

    Otherwise known as 'The Aitken effect'.
  13. Brechin City -vs- Dumbarton

    Undoubtedly our biggest game of the season. Hopefully we don't capitulate woefully like we did on our last visit to the Glebe. It's saddening makes one sweat nervously to think that for this one we could claim being able to field 11 players in somewhat their 'natural' positions as a triumph.
  14. Sons' sorrow

    Maybe it's the boredom of not many rumours, but as I read your first paragraph I'm wondering, are you suggesting that there's more to the players in the stand being injured and therefore not available for selection?
  15. Sons' sorrow

    I understand he wasn't available yesterday because he'd returned to Tannadice as his loan was up. He's no great loss other than being another player we can call on. He'll go down in the long list of loanees we've had who are in the 'he was alright' camp and most won't remember much of this time next year. He plugged a gap in terms of our lack of numbers but as to what sort of player he is/will be, who knows really, he didn't make much of an impact with us.
