  1. Montrose v Brechin

    Be nice to take a decent support but sadly Dods negative tactics have killed the appeal of the team. Performance wise last Saturday was our best display off attacking for ages a vast improvment. I would nt read too much into Tuesdays game . Having seen Montrose v Arbroath and after seeing us last week I d fancy our chances but you guys had a great result at Airdrie so hard too call. Looking forward to this fixture which has thrown up great games in years gone by ... Used to love watching guy s like Gary Murray , Innes Mcdonald, Chic Mclleland , Ivo Den Bieman, battling against our lads .

    I was nt fussed at losing last night and good to give younger guys a run out .. But at the end of the day it's another lower league cup defeat on Darrens CV i suppose.

    Your blooming right he's much nicer than Ken but can he still put in a shift ha ha
  4. Brechin City v East Fife

    This is no sour grapes, Brechin deserved their win, can't complain about that. But I have to say, that was possibly the least amount of football I e witnessed so far this season. Certainly from EF and didn't see a great lot from Brechin tbh. I was a plastic hater myself, until we installed the surface at Bayview. Grown to appreciate it. Players very very rarely get caught out by bounce , and the ball holds up when passed. We try to play football, sometimes, too much!! I stated earlier that is how bad our standards dropped we actually thought we played good footy honestly. We have nt attacked like that since the play off s I'd say . Hey I know we ll come undone against the Arbroaths n Raith s but that was an improve 10 fold ....

    Apologies my piscator friend. Arbroath FC subsidised by a tattie fermer
  6. Brechin City v East Fife

    Agree 100 % give Paddy , Shields, Dailly and Henry some game time .Even Jacko a half I would nt risk the big man though . Tuesday will be the last time I allow Dods a defeat ha ha

    Ye football on grass I'm all for . But we can t train on plastic all week then moan if results don t go our way on a plastic pitch at weekend. .I doubt if anyone trains on grass these days

    Then into Brechin and stop outside Jimmy Mann s house who will open his bedroom window and bless the the team in the style of The Pope . As for TOH s comments about plastic pitches we ve trained on them for years so can t complain really . It is what is . Maybe one sour point from yesterday Calum Tapping s rolling about after being caught in face was pathetic and embarrassing. Big Mcgeever soon told him though .

  10. Brechin City v East Fife

    East Fife fans will be saying f**k YER NAY THAT GID But after the absolute dross we ve endure so far this season that was sexy soccer ha ha ha ha . In all seriousness I thought today he dropped the passenger's and played near enough his strongest 11 and let them attack . Jacko s 60% fit , Big Mac out for 9 mths or whatever strolled it , wee Boris won every 2nd ball in the box and deserved a goal . Sinclair and Tapping worked they re backsides off . I noticed Stevie Campbell was more involved today at the dugout !!! maybe more of an input from him !!! Let's give fringe players a runique on Tuesday and keep others fresh for Saturday

    Anyone do the 4 Angus teams today ? Usually about 40/1
  12. Brechin City v East Fife

    Holy f**k !!!! We ve just played attacking footy and won a game . Everyone played well Big Mcgeever and Jacko played well and wee Boris deserved a goal . Should ve been 3 or 4 we rode our luck once or twice but no one can grudge us 3pts today .Well played lads ...

    What are folks opinions on this ? I'm just asking the a question and not being synical !! In this league a half decent City team doing away fine and with the other teams being mostly local I reckon our average attendance could be 550 / 650 that's relying on derbie s plus winning Airdrie and Raith teams . But the poor offering we ve had to start with I think we ll struggle to get 200 home fans shortly . This is a reason I think things need to change sooner than later . Either our style of footy and let our better players play proper footy or we bring in new faces behind the scenes as well and freshen whole place up .( I m not having a pop at anyone and I know we punch above our weight but it's all a bit gloomy just now ) .

    What comes first City win or Dodsy getting the bullet ?
  15. Brechin City 2018 /19

    Nothing s going to change and we all know it. We ll get two 0 0 bore draws the next couple league game s and he ll be safe . Up until Xmas I was quite happy with him but after Xmas we gradually got worse n worse ( confidence as well I realise that ) Not changing formations or giving others a chance , telling a confident Isaac not to take a penalty and give it to teachers pet Kalvin, who was woeful last year but doing okay this year . Binning Finn Graham and Watty for having opinions . And lastly not lifting the team against QOS probably worst performance of the season.
