  1. I thought we played ok, nothing like last week, but this was more of a scrap , never thought we were in any danger to be honest, but you are bang on scrapp y 1 nil wins away from build confidence and get you up the league... Well done to Rhys and the boys....
  2. Abso!Utley I have done a lot worse and will continue to do so probably inside and outside the ground,is it right 'no', you are the same GC is the same we have all done far worse, On this occasion GC has been unlucky probably a 2 second gesture has been caught on camera for evermore, someone reported it, what more can we say. GC has done more for the club than I or many on here could ever contribute, but he acted like a fud and got caught, and I know for a fact he will deeply regret his 2 second action... As stated in my previous post and indefinite ban is at the discretion of the club, it could be 2 weeks it could be 2 years it is definitely not a stick on life ban...
  3. This is getting out of hand 'surprisingly ', what do we want the club to do have a look at Policys on the website for example, there is a zero tolerance to offensive gestures (if you get caught) especially with anything around children in the Family section.... it is obviously not linked to the Rico situation, but off the back of that sorry saga processes have had to be tightened, for people on here blaming PH for this and him having an agenda please explain.. On the Facebook page tonight there is a poll of who thinks GC should be banned and YES voters being abused on there, FFS...... I Think back k to the cove game and the amount of bleating we did about gestures made to children etc at the end of the title decider last season, and now we are condoning it....(I am not saying it was deliberate at all, but someone has reported and the club have had to take action.. If this was a low profile supporter or a wrong un that did this, we would be applauding the club for taking action, The club cannot pick and choose someone's daftness.. Where is the lifetime ban coming from, the ban is indefinite and can be retracted at any time by the club. And for the record I have voted YES on the Facebook poll...
  4. Is this for the guy flying the bird, behind a group of 8 year olds who were getting there photo taken pre match with the mascot for the day sitting in the Family Section.. I can see as a parent how this wasn't taken as being funny and the club ha've carried out an investigation on the evidence provided by the parents.... does the punishment fit the crime, in this crazy world I am surprised he hasn't got 18 months...
  5. This Airdrie side are either sugar or shite, First class team performance with the team in control for about 80 percent of the game, Montrose were very un Montrose like, seemed little team spirit and lack of pace throughout the side, scoring first in this league is imperative, the last time we did that was the Clyde game, we still have he same issues as in previous weeks when we have been leaking goals, we managed 14 points in our pomp in the first quarter, I think with the games coming up a similar total may be achievable....I Surprised at the crowd yesterday was fully expecting the loyal fans to stay away and moan about Telfer from afield, certainly looked quieter than normal but according to SPFL website attendance was a decent (for us)_ 1115..... Are we still looking for a chairman's statement or has that been put on the back burner for now.....
  6. Its one for us o go back to basics, McCabe moving to defence has done nothing really except open glaring holes in midfield, with Ballantyne back I would settle for this side.. Lyness . Ballantyne. Watson ... Fordyce..... ATS..... Telfer . McCabe........ j Deveney Jamieson.... Gall........ Smih... subs...Devenney, McMaster Not much else we can do , hopefully we can all sit in our usual seats again after he QOS debacle
  7. Is everyone jumping the gun here has he got the tin tack or not, or is Lennon sufferring from a stress related illness which the club are doing the right thing and taking him out the firing line until he is fit to return.. (This is not speculation just another slant on the statement)
  8. I would like him to show it, for the record Scott Taggart at Alloa is a far superior right back and defender
  9. It looks to me appointing him as assistant would be a massive wage hike, keeping it in the family... Pointless appointment that has totally ruined a decent pro.. Hutts and Prunty the water bottle throwers certainly have nothing to cheer about, Hutts is,still stealing a wage as a player \ coach, there is more chance of Roddy McKenzie getting a,game these days, all these wages could have been put to better use getting players in...if money is indeed tight ..
  10. To be honest Rae and Ballantyne haven't kicked their own arse yet, ok Rae has been injured but surely jury is out on him and Ballantyne who came with a big pedigree hasn't done much, to be honest here are numerous better right backs in the league than him .. Dean Lyness came in just before the QOS and was catching cross balls for fun, 2 weeks training with Hutts instead of catching balls he has developed some weird 2 handed flap, which didn't end to well ....
  11. That's the best we have got, problem that day was McGill wasn't willing to get physical with the 2 Kelty centre halfs and we lost every 60. 40 ball in our favour that day, our defence sat so deep with McCabe just in front, who just wanted to ping crossield Hollywood balls all game (Dean Cairns style). That 3 in midfield is the best option we have, but the setup has to be right, Fordyce has to keep a high line , compressing the midfield and letting our ball players play, at the moment teams are running through us at will, and Telfer and co are chasing shadows, McCabe preaches high risk, high reward, the football we play is the exact opposite a disorganised cowardly shambles...
  12. You put Telfer in a midfield 3_with McCabe and Frizzell, you get a totally different Telfer and midfield, The current midfield of Telfer, and 2 boys McMaster and Devenney is overrun, McMaster is out his depth and Devennry could be a right good player if coached correctly and not thrown to the wolves, unfortunately he has to man up and battle on, another when his confidence goes has nobody to pick him up..
  13. Trying to figure out what happened, to me it looks like the board "went for it" last season to get out this godforsaken league and we just came up short , should we have been more prudent financially.......IMO they had to go for it, it was a once in a generation event(that will cheer us up) After Murray had to move on, we tried to keep he rest of he ba nd together, this is where it started to fall apart and get desperate, appointing McCabe (a shadow of a player now) appointed his cousin Fordyce the skipper to his assistant this in hindsight should have been a Sand y Clark(or similar) type to keep Rhys in check.... After that the initial deals offered to out of contract players knocked back offers given, but Falkirk allegedly made offers to McCabe(before appointed) and Frizzell did we match them to resign .... Th club promised a support structure and we are shouting for it..... Prunty and Hutton have clearly been installed in this role but what do they offer , last season Prunt y was everywhere a hyperactive cheer leader, passionate, this season he offers nothing from the bench , it is far more important too get involved and motivate this season.. David Hutton 3rd choice keeper and Gk coach, he was decent at Alloa last season looked a good choice as back up , he too looks completely disinterested and was unable to help when needed with our various keeper issues, problem this leaves he is picking up a dual player coach wage.... How many others have their nose in the trough.. This season is done and will test the resolve and loyalty of all of us was delighted to see us break the 1 k barrier for every home game his season, moving forward......
  14. Agree completely about Fordyce is performances have been as poor and nervy as his pre match interviews, main player, skipper and assistant manager, it is clearly too much for him, relinquish the captain's armband and give more responsibility to others seems too much of a family affair just now..
  15. Great post, it is basically coming down to points over principles, I can see McCabe digging in over this..
  16. Think back to a long hot preseason and our top secret training camp at Broadwood, that's when your trialists and targets make an appearance, let's break them down, Euan Deveney ex killie youth, we were warned about him as being pish by Falkirk and Clyde fans, Josh Jack midfielder ex St Mirre n youth failed to win a deal and signed for For far at the arse end of League 2, Jack Garrard ex Hamilton youth again failed to win a deal and now at non league Cowden beath , Dean Jones ex pars probably the best of the bunch, who seemed to hang about for a couple of weeks and offered nothing, oh and not forgetting Dylan Ruiz Diaz ex QP trialist had a number of our fanbase frothing at the mouth with his skills at the NL cup he has since done a Reggie Perrin..I Thats basically all we had to offer a deal to, does McCabe have contacts you would think so as said previously the hard yards are done before a ball is kicked, did we....??? We signed Camny Ballantyne apparent best right wing back in the league, a Murray signing. Time you started to show it son... Josh Rae keeper from QOS, looks on paper a decent signing , time will tell, currently out longish term Ben Wylie IMO a loan that Murray had signed off on, McCabe never took to him from day one and Recalled by Celtic...I Quality loanees that well worn phrase. ..the aforementioned Wylie struggled, Jamieson, McMaster could in time be decent players in time not with Airdrie they wont... The one positive was young his keeper Johnson, he was signed on bizarre 7 day loans with Raes shoulder clearly fucked waiting for young Irish keeper Henderson to ride into town on his white charger to save the day, not the lads fault but performances showed he wasn't ready, another fail. Thankfully Dean Lyness made himself available and looks a quality keeper, although has it been confirmed he is here for the season, listening to Fordyces pre match interview he or Brian Smith mentioned January??I From day one there has been no real targeted recruitment and it clearly shows see above...
  17. It's easy to pick on scapegoats we always do, the 2 players mentioned have not done much wrong IMO, personally I think teams defence is stronger with ATS in it, Telfer on the other hand, has ability, not much went right today, did he hide no, our midfield 3 with him and 2 rookies got overrun, why, McCabe is persisting with 3 ineffective forwards and due to there lack of work rate especially Jameson they give little or no cover defensively, most opponents play 4 in midfield that's where we lose out, 4 4 2 is a typical League 1 formation and should make us harder to beat, don't think it's the McCabe way though, Also the strip looked better with the red shorts and socks combo....(least of our concerns)
  18. There seems to be a fair bit of ' board bashing' on here and on the Facebook page, I think we were all of the opinion when Murray went th at McCabe was worth a punt, but it could go pete tong pretty quick and it has, could the club have given them a support structure as previously stated, absolutely, did McCabe and co want it after their decent start. ???? How now do we rectify the situation and target 4th place ( Full Time is that good enough ???). We're our expectations too high this season after failing miserably to get promoted in our best season and points total in many many years.... A lot of questions at the moment with not many answers, and for the record I do not go with the theory of financial issues..
  19. Heard today that Wylie was recalled by Celtic due to lack of game time, which was one of t he terms of his loan.... Arguably not a great loss but this happened at the 11 th hour, We could have a million pound to sign players, no use to you when you cannot sign anybody, this lies squarely at the door of McCabe and we really will need to get used to days like this, we have been found out, January window could help would you trust him to sign players though.... Interesting interview with Callum Smith onDTV claiming he is only feeling match sharp now WTF have they been doing in training for the last 3 months (Smith is our most committed player)..I I personally don't think PH will wait too long till our player manager becomes a player only....
  20. Apologies if I have offended your goodself, I am not particularly svelte myself, but I do buy clothes that fit me. Let's not let this deflect from the major issues. Eh....
  21. Well that IMO was a frantic shambles, The 2 fullbacks Watson and Ballantyne were atrocious, Ballantyne could have been red carded at his first booking, shocking tackle. Queens put dangerous crosses in all game with us seemingly unwilling to do the hard yards and get tight and stop the cross, this isn't helped when we play 3 forward players, the midfielders are getting overrun, men against boys, Wilson, Todd and Cochrane for Queens outmuscled our 'boys'... I was all for Rhys stepping back into defenc e, but it created an even bigger hole in midfield, Yet again our lack of depth killed us, Queens put on 4 experienced subs and really took control, Telfer, McMaster and Smith were on there knees at the end, and we could have refreshed it with Deveney coming on...... Apparently Wylie has been sent back to Celtic and Sal to stranrae r with no replacements, absolutely crazy and Rhys really needs to get his head together, we are in a tailspin and I cannot really see us getting out of it short term and it is self inflicted..... The strip looked alright but quality wise looks and feels terrible, what makes the strip look worse though is supporters buying the wrong size it doesn't cost anymore to size up ffs .....
  22. If Celtic can take Wylie back from his loan before it's expiry then surely we can recall Sal from Stranraer If we need to......
  23. Unless he is back to get his fitness up to standard, Jamieson and McMaster still play with St Mirre n B as well excluding Saturday's obviously..
