  1. Sons' sorrow

    Is that based on anything whatsoever or are you just dangling something at the end of your line?
  2. Sons' sorrow

    I agree entirely. With Raith/QOS, Falkirk and Peterhead, ‘challenging’ will be very difficult. Of course we should be aiming for that, but with the realistic caveat that play-offs would be the realistic aim. With what Duffy’s said (unless he states to the contrary that we don’t have a competitive budget) most fans would expect us to challenge at the very top end, which in my opinion is unrealistic and as you say, heaps pressure on him and the team from the first kick.

    I’m in no way panicking but just as a comparison, East Fife have twelve players signed for next season, including yesterday’s confirmation of Danny Denholm. Very decent player if you ask me. Whereby we don’t even know what budget or manager we’ll have next season. As I said not panicking but a smidge unnerved.
  4. #ToughtYouWellMate - DFC v SFC

    Correct me if I’m wrong (likely), but is Duffy not contracted for next season? Or was it just a ‘till the end of the season’ dealy he was given when appointed? Absolutely.
  5. Dumbarton v East Fife 20.4.19

    No, absolutely not. Don’t bother turning up, it’ll be fine.
  6. Dombarton vs Airdrie

    We could either view that as a decent point come the end of the season, or a massive two dropped points, who knows. On seeing the goals back, the defending for the first four goals is atrocious from both sides, some real amateur stuff, but both sides’ third goals were quality. A great strike from Forbes and a really good move from airdrie. It’s now crazily right down at the bottom and even though it’s cliched, we have five cup finals to try and ensure our safety in this division, which at this time is far from assured.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Stranraer v Dumbarton

    I’d be more confident about us getting something from the Nou Camp than Stranraer.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?🤪
  13. 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?
