  1. Well what a disappointing few days, the loaner window came,and went with no activity apart from our most physical striker and only o ne in our squad who can compete for a header, Good luck Sal... Onto the game with a predictable look about the team, on paper it looks decent enough, the whole process just seems to be unravelling piece by piece just now... Main issue we have is our strikers Jam ieson and McGI'll give us nothing, McGillseems undroppable as said before is Gal not starting due to is Part Time status, there has to be some reason... Watson and J Devenney dropped out to shoehorn our management team into the Line up, Fordyce is a shadow of the player of last season, constantly giving the ball away playing out from the back and getting pulled all over the place, Ma baw McCabe sat just in front of the defence and played crossfielld hollywood balls all game, constantly switching play on a tight pitch which now and again is a good tactic, but we couldn't build up any momentum or gain territory due t o it.... although our bench and squad is light, changes should have been made, that's the last 2_games opposing managers have been brave putting on fresh legs in attacking areas and it as paid off, Salmon bullied us for the winner last week and Alfie wanted the ball more than our defence today to slot home.... Looking at our coaching setup on the bench, they offer nothing but water bottles, Prunty and Hutts for all there faults were always passionate and involved, now nothing, something not right with the setup.. We have Montrose coming up on Tuesday if we drop that we are in a tailspin,
  2. We were spouting the same pish, we only have 15 outfield players now after letting Sali m go to Stranraer on loan, absolutely crazy...
  3. Let's not get caught up in this Goodwillie pish, the real story here is why an already threadbare squad has lost another player with seeming!y no one replacing him, especially with McCabe and Fordyce looking for wee gems to increase and improve the squad..? a totally bizarre situation at the culmination of a clusterfu k of a squad building process...
  4. The crowds Falkirk get are about 4 times what Airdrie are averaging (1k) and I am led to believe you guys are paying substantially more a week ( upper championship wages apparently) than ourselves, possibly approx double an average Airdrie wage, we are no means flush, but seem very well run and seem stable enough..... What has happened at Falkirk too many noses in the trough ex directors etc, We are lifers in League 1 and Falkirk better watch as they could be as well, if austerity starts to hit home.... Interesting times.....
  5. It very much seems promotion or bust, or could this be described as High Risk. High Reward...
  6. How many senior pros have you got, I think Airdrie are couple short minimum and we have 18...
  7. Saddle up guys and gals, for an exciting couple of days, The well documented loanee window closes on Friday at midnight, surely we will land a wee gem at the last minute to boost our 18 man squad, I hope and expect this too happen... You never know they might end up modelling this season's new home kit which is getting launched this week (apparently)......
  8. Great loan signing, a goalscoring energetic midfielder. The type of player we were crying out for...
  9. Would be very surprised if Alan Johnston and Sandy Clark were not strongly linked with this gig
  10. Surely it's only a matter of time till Pollok go 'co ntactless' at the pie stall.. yet another weird quirk in the world of senior football
  11. The witching hour of the loanee signing window is nearly upon us, we have repeatedly spouted all summer about quality loanees, a n d I have yet to see one... We have 2 loanee signings left will be sign any, not heard any rumours... Or do we go with an 18 man squad till January.....
  12. Taggart or Cammy Ballantyne, for me Taggs is a far more solid player in different positions, or put it this way he always plays well against Airdrie
  13. It's all about opinions I would start Salim as centre over Jameson and McGill all day long, he should have had 2 goals that Jamieson or McGill wouldn't have been in the position to score. Midfield was decent all night until the last 15 when they tired the drop off in fitness was alarming, McMaster, Devenney and Telfer all faded and should have been replaced, if Rhys was serious about his cup..Alloa made 4 changes to win the game and credit to them, we made 3 subs with 2 in injury time with seconds to go. AT S absolutely strolled it tonight a n d has surely played his way into the starting 11 ...or indeed keep his place
  14. Wasn't a fan of the strip when it was unveiled, It looks a much better kit on the pitch, agree had a hint of the Faddy strip and it's Fila predecessor as well....
