  1. I agree but sadly, being in a namby pamby society the UK has sold all its water cannons. However the use of horses and dogs would have been effective. I am disgusted with the Scottish Police being told basically not to act like policemen because it might upset some sensitive little piece of scum.
  2. Good points. I am not sure that many teams will have a big enough squad to get through this. Injuries are bound to be above average due to lack of match fitness if nothing else. What are the odds for guessing the number of goalkeepers having to play outfield at some point?
  3. Anyone who thinks differently is on another planet.
  4. Sturgeon will not allow it. Standard practice for her it would seem.
  5. The chip on the shoulder has grown somewhat. What a plonker.
  6. Very important game and should be a classic. Providing we have no injuries I expect a close game with us just edging it by one goal. 2-1.
  7. We only have one really creative midfield player and his fitness is a huge concern. We really missed a trick when we failed to secure Ray Grant from Clyde. My main concern is that we appear to be one paced and it is not fast. Quitongo is the main man to show a spark out of the ordinary. I believe Murray can do this with service and fitness.
  8. Whilst understandable I think there are too many comments here made too soon after a disappointment driven by too high an expectation. We were playing a team two divisions above us for a reason. Our priority this season is to win League 2 and I think we will do that with the players Ray has brought in. Those same players were beyond our wildest dreams twelve months ago. Now that the season is taking shape it is clear that without Slater in the team we are devoid of creativity in midfield. Not only from him but with those whose game is lifted by his presence. David Galt comes to mind. Sadly it looks as if we cannot rely on Slater's fitness and I hope this might be addressed in the current window. Yes, I would have liked to see Quitongo start last night but I am not paid to pick the team. Moving forward I have no doubt that Ray knows he will have to change some personnel for League 1 and beyond but this is an evolving situation. For now let's get down to winning League 2 and take it from there.
  9. Nice to see Gerry back in senior football. Liked him when he was with us. Best of luck.
  10. Pitch inspection 9.00am. Can't see it happening.
  11. I am sure there are others more in the know than I but Willie Haughey has apparently agreed to meet the wage bill for ten years and we see where we go from there. Immediate, this season, aim is promotion and then to become an established team in league one with the hopes of pushing on to the Championship. The main aim is not be in what will become the league of death League 2 now that the pyramid system is in full swing. I can see at least four or five teams in there just now who have little long term future at this level. I would be disappointed if we lost the opportunity to thrash Clyde four times a season 🤣
  12. The clubs rejected the SPFL proposals. Back to bedlam.
  13. I like the look of the starting line up. Here we go.
  14. Previous thread has disappeared into the ether. We have played well enough down there recently but have not come back with the points. We are a considerably different animal now and it appears Annan have not progressed much, if at all. It will be a stuffy game but I predict we shall prevail 2-0 with Slater in the team. Hope Grant makes it. Does anyone know the extent of his injury?
  15. I can see why Gillespie was dropped earlier in the season to many people's amazement. He is so careless and way off the pace.
  16. Two even teams cancelled one another out. Between deflections, fortunate penalty decision, and defensive errors, a draw was a fair result. No doubt in my mind these are the top two teams in this league. We just could not get going and looked a bit one paced. Credit to Edinburgh. Liked Longridge when he came on. I do think we missed Slater in there. No harm done.
  17. Please don't march too quickly as I have you down to finish third and Elgin fourth.
  18. I am finding it difficult to assess games based on our new found strength in this division. Traditionally difficult venues have produced great results. This should be a great game and a far better barometer to judge where we are at. These are the sides that I would imagine will finish 1 and 2 at the end of the season. I think our teamwork is improving with every game and the strength in depth that we have is unmatched by any other team in the division. On that alone I will take us to win 2-1.
  19. Very impressive. Total control throughout. Galt my MoM. Murray is going to score a bagful this season.
