  1. The second goal at the end probably put a fairer reflection on things. Rovers have, quite rightly, been praised to the hilt so far this season, but they've got to take the stick for that shitshow tonight. Professional football players really shouldn't need told this, but surely someone at some point might have thought it a good idea to fire a few shots in at a 16 year old who would barely have had time to warm up?
  2. The thing that has surprised me most this season is the standard of goalkeeping. Craig Gordon is obviously way above this level, Jamie MacDonald has been good for us so far, the Ayr keeper looked fine against us, although not overly worked, and I've always rated Neil Parry, despite not covering himself in glory at our 2nd goal on Saturday. However, there are many others who are either inconsistent, or in some cases, absolutely rank rotten.
  3. The late Stephen Coulter in the middle. Stayed a few streets away from me up Spam when we were younger. Lovely guy, sadly missed.
  4. It didn't look great, yet I always remember Somerset having one of the better playing surfaces over the years.
  5. Were you still having a w**k when Ross cracked a shot off the inside of the post in the first few minutes last Saturday?
  6. Were. Carlton went tits up a few months back. Best steak pies ever were from La Speranza on the high street.
  7. 'The League Cup needs Hearts more than it needs Alloa'. 😏
  8. Not only that, but the person who drew up the shortlist of candidates to be interviewed rejected McGlynn in favour of Locke. And we wonder why we've been bleeding through our arses financially over the last few seasons.
  9. I've got it now, but the blood pressure was starting to rise. No idea what end of Longman Road this commentator hails from.
  10. Inverness can rightly feel aggrieved at not being awarded another penalty right at the end, but that can be countered by the referee bottling a red card in the first half when there was no covering defender.
  11. Saw that too. Classic. Did we win 1-0 with a goal from Ian Thomson? It was a late header from Daz at their end. Jock McStay crossed it. I'm sure that was Paul Sweeney's last competitive game for the Rovers and he was simply awesome that day.
  12. I'm sure they were hit with a barrage of snowballs from the bottom end terrace. I think smacking Watson in the pus with the snowball is up there in folklore with breaking the Wembley goals in 1977 - everyone knows someone who did it.
  13. I'll leave that one up to you. No fkn way I'm growing my hair long and asking to be called John Watson. That would be a step too far.
  14. 🎵The next we knew, it had gone half two, And outside was stormy weather. 🎶
  15. Our home match with Dundee has been moved to Tuesday 12th January to avoid a clash with the Scottish Cup.
  16. Aye, the Hilltoon v the Gallatoon. Be there or be square.
  17. Easy to be magnanimous when you've just won 5-2, but thought the footage and the commentary was top notch. The guys doing the commentary had obviously done their homework on the Rovers and I'm willing to wager none of the mainstream media commentators would have given as much insight. Strange game - I feared for us a bit when we conceded so soon after going in front, but regaining the lead was crucial. Thought our midfield were superb in the first half, but were posted missing in the first fifteen minutes of the second half. Glad to see we had the sense to have men on the posts at set pieces - I can't understand why teams at a higher level than us don't do it. Obviously the injuries take a bit of the shine of the result, but got to be happy with how clinical we were.
  18. Given the amount of pant wetting from both sets of fans this season about the state of our respective defences, I'm thoroughly looking forward to a turgid 0-0 on Saturday.
  19. He's an East Fife fan. Small mercy's n all that. I'm surprised Tazz hasn't been on yet to tell us that East Fife are really a much bigger club than the Rovers as they're getting as big gates in league one against Cove and Peterhead as we're getting in the championship against Hearts and Dundee.
  20. I think what Neilson was saying to his player is that if Armstrong cuts onto his left foot, stick your hand down by your knee to stop the ball and it'll be fine - the referee will think it hit your midriff.
  21. My money says Tazz's Faither / uncle / brother / brother-in-law (one of the same).
  22. Correct, and conversely pre season results and performances under Mckinnon were poor. I'm sure we got horsed by East Fife at Methil and David Bates was torn a new one.
  23. You can also wear it when you go abroad on holid..... Maybe not.
  24. I think he was initially talking about Falkirk under Paul Hartley when they ditched their youth academy and followed what they called the 'Brentford model' by signing young guys who had been released by bigger clubs down south. McKinnon succeeded Hartley but couldn't do anything to halt the decline.
