  1. Assuming we get a decent goalie I believe we have the basis of a pretty decent squad in the making. I feel confident that these guys have the potential to place us in the top half of Div 2 next season. A loan striker would be icing on the cake.
  2. Happy to agree with both An and The Spider. Can't wait for season to start.
  3. I seem to remember I was present at that meeting!!!!!!!! That said, ma heid is spinning with aw they big words. Look forward to the red caps at some away games.
  4. I am obviously a uniform common fellow. Hoops it is then when I am amongst the posh.
  5. I will just be delighted to see the black and white stripes back at Hampden. Goodness knows who will be wearing them.
  6. It appears to only be a few of our own who don't seem to care about his behaviour. Few of those players leaving are being scooped up for better things. There is an underlying common denominator in this. Someone on the committee must grow a pair and prune out the cause.
  7. Nobody can argue with your reprise of the PAST. To rest on laurels is dangerous and even the top managers have a sell by date. I believe Gus has reached his. You have witnessed the constant changing of selection at the beginning of the season giving young new signings no chance to settle in and get accustomed to League One. You have witnessed the playing of good key players so far out of position it brought unfair criticism on them. You have seen and heard Gus gesticulating like a dervish and shouting at his players during a game. Do you really believe that is the best way to motivate anybody? I am not sure that behaviour commands respect. Those are all facts. They are NOW. His team formations and decision making for substitutions are subjective and open to argument. If those observations are pathetic then I have been watching different games from you this season. I believe, and have said before, that Gus is the single largest reason for our relegation this season. I do not believe we were the worst team in the league, or had the worst group of players at our disposal. It is time for a modern thinking person to be offered the job. Sadly, I do not believe this will happen.
  8. I suspect the way he was treated by Gus is the reason for McVey going. Donnelly is a big disappointment. None of the other rumours are surprising or with exception of Galt, insurmountable.
  9. Would be sorry to see Galt go, but it is hard to see anyone else getting an offer. In truth, with the exception of Burns, McLaughlan, and Donnelly, I would encourage them to go.
  10. I met Muir's father in law a couple of weeks ago and he said that Wullie's wife was on at him to get paid for football. He took the chance to go when it came up. The guy said that Wullie just told the club he had to leave for money reasons and they let him go. I believe that to be 100% accurate.
  11. I think that summed up our season in 90 minutes. Two pretty poor teams who never really got a grip of the game. I hope Ross Millen's injury is not as bad as it looked. At least that will be the last of that awful strip.
  12. I think the referee made a big mistake there but I am not sure we deserved a win. Cummins made a stupid tackle and can have no complaint although I do think another referee might have seen it as a booking. We were vulnerable in both full back positions. Why we keep backing off opponents running at us beats me. I would give Sean pass marks for going forward but Millen has just not been with the pace for a few games. That worries me for Saturday. Enjoyed the game and all to play for on Saturday. Sorry for McMenamin. I wish him a speedy recovery.
  13. I don't think so. We currently are the highest ranked team in the play offs. Should anybody beat us ( which they wont ) they automatically assume that mantle. If you recall when we beat Cowdenbeath we were the lowest ranking team but we were ranked higher in the final than Lanarkshire's poorest. Who wouldn't be against them?!!!!!!!!!
  14. Agree with An. We are not as bad as our desperate position implies. The players will put in bags of effort as always. Our best chance is to leave Gus behind and let the lads play with some flair without fear of either never playing again or receiving a public roasting.
  15. Credit where credit is due. Sean Burns has been effective and merited his place in the team when he is played in his current best position. He was at his best in the left midfield when he played there last season as well. It was a delight to see him win that ball on Saturday and score. That spirit and determination has been lacking in midfield all season. Why he has not been played there all season is an issue for another topic. Well done Sean.
  16. Donnelly had a belter last time in Coatbridge. Bring him in instead of Docherty who flatters to deceive.
  17. It was another classic example of where our main problem lies but it is apparently worth keeping him because he did well four years ago.
  18. I agree entirely. My point was to emphasise that now that cards are on the table for a positive outcome for all parties we should not drop the ball due to sentiment. My first option 25/30 years ago was along your lines but there was little or no support for it. Admittedly I did not have realistic demolition figures at the time. Now is the time for professional negotiating, including GDC, to result in a secure future for us. I sense that by letting the cat out of the bag early the SFA would much prefer Hampden over Murrayfield but we should not push too hard on that. I see this as a great opportunity for us.
