  1. Just a footnote to say That Graham Webster won Player of the year, Players player of the year and directors player of the year. Blair Lyons won young POTY and Andy Steeves won members POTY. Better not blow his trumpet too much though. He might be singled out next season (if next season ever comes)
  2. Good to see Andy Steeves getting a mention. We are lucky to have two great full backs at Montrose but for me, Steeves is the pick of the pair. Blair Lyons also getting all the plaudits and well deserved but our best performer (in my humble opinion) has been Graham Webster. 9 goals and 10 assists has been a great return for us and he has been consistantly good all season. He might just sneak our POTY ahead of Blair. He certainly got my vote.
  3. A possible way to up the earnings from a live transmission would be to sell the match to away fans on a one off basis. I can't see it happening though. In our case, the Mo wouldn't have the fan base to make it viable.
  4. Will need a couple of loan signings on top of what we already have. Cammy F and Big Sena done ok for us last season so a couple like them would be ideal.
  5. Uncanny resemblance to last season. Us pipping EF into 4th place and QOS in play off place in championship. Just hope for a better outcome if it happens again.
  6. Do you think many of these players are willing to spend up to 12 hours a day travelling to and from games in the far north / Fort William etc - possibly midweek matches too. They would have to be pretty dedicated to do that for a season or two.
  7. Hopefully we can take care of our own game so we'll be keeping a close eye on this one. The winners will be in a really strong position, the losers and we'll be breathing right down your necks. A draw and hopefully we can take advantage and jump into third place on Tuesday night. Assuming we take care of our own business, of course.
  8. Have said this to others. We are a striker away from being real contenders in this league. Tough game for the Mo tomorrow night but vital if we are to push for a top 4 spot. Our previous 2 games against Clyde have been pretty comfortable but they are bound to be on a high after a great result on Saturday. Will settle for a stuffy 1-0 away win.
  9. The collective look of disbelief by the Airdrie defenders at the flapping goalie is priceless.
  10. Hope hes not traumatised by big bad Hamish. That would end him. A nightmare on Wellington Street.
  11. oust Airdrie in 3 or 4 weeks, then no problem... We've done our bit. Over to you lot next week.
  12. Certainly not a classic today but Mo certainly deserved the win. Ridiculous goalkeeping to give away the penalty only redeemed minutes later with a great save from Rustys shot. Rusty looked a lot more interested today. Somebody should tell him that the ban on heading the ball is for under 12s though. Airdrie offered very little. If those guys are full time they earn an easy living . Got a bit nervy near the end when we sat deeper and deeper. Airdrie were punting in high balls but Matty and Dillon mopped up everything. MOTM - joint award for the above Matty & Dillo
  13. North Calder went to the Mo for the day To watch Airdrieonians play. He seems quite irate When refused at the gate and then could not find his way.
  14. Got to remember we got reduced to 10 men on the back of the penalty (which was then rescinded). Looking like a good old dog fight between us, you lot and the fifers for the play off places between now and the end of the season. Big game on Saturday.
  15. Apologies for the mix up. I was on a rant.
  16. We are certainly heading in the right direction. We played well yesterday and dubious decisions apart, could well have come away with a draw. As others have said, we offered very little up front. We are a striker away from being real contenders in this league.
  17. Your input into the debate is priceless. Thanks for clearing up all the questionable details.
  18. Do not go by the photograph. Wait until you've seen the footage. I have, We are family friends with the guy who edits the footage - I saw it last night after the match. Your goalkeeper is going to say he was fouled - he made a feckin howler of it and punched the ball to our strikers feet. It was your own defender Hall that took the goalkeeper out. Funny that FTV choose not to show the incident - I'll be having serious words with Russell.
  19. These pictures tell nothing, move on a couple of frames. McManus kicks the back of our defender and CJ does not touch the keeper. Your defender Hall takes him out. I've seen the footage that is going up soon.
  20. Blame the ref ??? Your penalty - Falkirk player kicked the back of Montrose defenders leg. Never a pen. Lyons rolled the ball into empty net after Falkirk defender takes out his own goalkeeper. Free kick against Montrose player.
  21. This is a free hit for us. Weve got absolutely no pressure or expectations from this game. We've got games in hand. Win those and we can sneak up to third place. A point or 3 from this game would be a massive boost. Dropping points would be a huge kick in the bawbag for Falkirk. C'Mon the Mo.
