    Oh dear.

    McCabe scoring from range was inevitable.  He'd been having shots that weren't too far away from the net throughout the game. 

    Disgusted by the lack of effort after the goal.  Robert Thomson was the only one who looked interested. 

    I think if we'd been a bit more savy with the substitutions we could have won that.  I've always fel thatt Aitken is too reluctant to make changes during the game.

    9th.  Play-offs looming.  We have an abysmal record against teams in the divisions below us.  I have what they call the FEAR.

    We couldn't play because of the wind. We always struggle on a windy day. Martin was the only player who handled the wind well. His bye-kicks were pretty good most of the time.

    Nade and Nuttall looked disinterested. I think they managed to get no more than five touches of the ball between them. WTF were we thinking in the first half, shooting into the wind, with only Berba up front? Fleming was the man to bring on, not Nade. I think Nade's second spell with us hasn't been good.

    All other results around us didn't help. The Utd v Utd game on Alba was as good a reason as any for shutting down the Alba station.What a pile of shite.

    He calls them "they". No football fan calls their team "they". He's thrown it out there to try and make himself seem like he's on the ball. It's bullshit. It's all bullshit.

    Rankine did a similar thing. At one of the games I stewarded at during Clydebank's time at Boaghead, when asked how we (the Sons) were doing, his reply was "Dumbarton are winning 3-1". A real fan would've said "we" we're winning 3-1.

    Wilson's no fan.

    Are there any decent shops in Dumbarton or at least a nice coffee house so the Missus can sit and chill out with a book, or am I as well dropping her off at Braehead (not that there's much there these days)?


    I'm not impressed by the shops in town. Much depends on what Mrs Montalbano wants to shop for.

    The coffee shop that The Moonster speaks of is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone.

    There's a wee coffee shop on Glasgow Road at the junction with Greenhead road, which isn't far from the ground. I hear its very good but I've never been in. There's a few in the town centre too but again I can't recommend any as I don't use them.

    The one at Glasgow/Greenhead Road is excellent.

    Game looks as if it is heading for a near sell out and i believe Thistle have sold their allocation. Should be a cracking atmosphere and hopefully a very decent game. 

    Sorry Bob, I have to disagree with you on this occasion.

    Thisrle allocation is what? Maybe 1,000? Rangers allocation - circa 48,000 or so?

    Ergo, 48,000 surely can drown out 1,000, no.? = Atmosphere dead if Rangers winning.

    Unless the Thistle are winning with ten minutes to go of course. Then it would be 5,000 v 1,000 singing.

    Cracking atmosphere? I don't agree with you, I'm afraid...

    I do agree it could be a great game, potentially.

    Don't really get the seethe about the penalty incident, Dumbarton player being an arsehole and deservedly booked, Loy grassing him up Lee Wallace style but we're not in a position to take the moral high ground in such an important game. Doesn't excuse the penalty miss as he surely would have placed the ball just off the divot. Think we've scored 1 pen out of 5 or 6 this year it's cost us a good few points against relegation rivals.

    Dumbarton were well organised and a draw was the right result, not a great performance by Saints we missed Morgan and the Stelios in midfield experiment didn't really work. Thought we looked more dangerous once Sutton came on as we hadn't won a header up there all day till then. Could end up being a valuable point, especially since the other results went our way for once so we got away with it a little. Hope to see Dumbarton stay up (as long as it's not at our expense) and expect they will, much better team than Ayr and better than Raith this season.

    Excellent, well-balance, reasonable and impartial post there, Irvine Buddy.

    A lot of people could learn from you. Too much seethe on here over next to nothing.

    The way the two teams have been playing of late, a draw was a reasonable outcome.

    Why can't we all just move on?

    I hope you're right, Jordo, I think 7 points would put it all beyond doubt though.

    I don't think three or four points will be enough. Everyone at our end of the league will be scrapping like mad for every point they can get.

    Hopefully by the time we get to play Falkirk and the Arabs, their respective positions in the top four will be decided and they can send out the kids for a run, giving us a chance to capitalise.


  8. That was a pretty enjoyable game today (yesterday, actually) and if either team had nicked it by 1-0, I would have been unsurprised.

    For us, I think it was hard to single out one player for MoTM. Despite being a bit depleted of strikers, we did pretty well. The lad McRorie had a good game, IMO, and I met his father prior to the game. Top bloke.

    Like others, I agree the ref was terrible.

    I'm ok Rocky.  How's yourself?  Ages since I saw you posting.

    Now while sane blokes like you and I ken that Dumbarton and Rangers shared the title for the inaugural Scottish Football League the young Gitane-smoking, Camus-reading, roll-neck sweater-wearing, Dundonain existentialist @The DAreckons a club only exists for as long as you, personally, remember.

    And folk call me The Drunk?

    Well, since I'm about a hundred and thirty twelve years old, I can remember that year (just!) - I actually have a cut-out from the Glasgow Herald with the table from that year, proudly displayed on the wall at work. We are top (alphabetically, I presume), you are a poor second.

    If goal difference had been a deciding factor, you wouldn't have a half-title to claim!

    Been mainly lurking in the Championship Forum of late, getting it tight from certain Hivs fans. Long story, too long to tell.
