  1. Come On Ye Mo - Montrose FC 2018/19

    We surely would have looked at the run of the last 3 league games as a chance to open up a gap between us and the relegation spots. However, that's 5 dropped points against the bottom 3 in the last 3. Important 2 weeks now with Forfar and Raith to play.
  2. Montrose V Stenny

    CJ missed chances aside, we looked very short of ideas last Saturday after Rennie went off, so I'm not expecting lots of goals today. This is an important game to win.

  4. Montrose v Rovers

    My favourite part of that is at 14 seconds when all the boys chasing Martin all jump at the same time. Great strike. He needs a long run in the team for his confidence, and it's starting to show. Sent from my HTC One A9s using Tapatalk
  5. Well, the first 20 minutes of the penultimate league game at Galabank end of 16-17 season was truly atrocious and one of the least enjoyable journeys I've made. To those of you who travelled through today, I hope you are enjoying the first 30 minutes tonight!
  6. "Dreadful", "forgettable" and "lucky" are spot on. Very disappointing performance this afternoon. Highlight of a very drab game devoid of any real chances for us, being farside lino taking objection to Annan's number 3 leaving the field of play to pick up his energy gel, by kicking his water bottle away. The Sean Dillon Fan Club will surely want to see us through to the next round.
  7. Montrose vs Dumbarton

    Yes, far more settled looking at the back today. There's been a lot of chopping and changing of personnel and formation this season but looked more assured today. Suspect Antoniazzi may miss a week after that ball in the chops, so yet more changes will come. Good to see Henderson get a run out too, and Webby surely due a start after today's positive performance. Two wins on the bounce will breed confidence, but next week will be an entirely different test altogether.
  8. Montrose v Farfir

    No idea how either! CJ ran and ran all game and should have won it for us, but showed great determination to chase all game. At 0-2 I really did think Forfar would run riot as we looked really out of sorts and they were ticking along well, first to every second ball and looking sharp. But we grew back into the game and having the wind behind us second 45 seemed to swing the game in our favour. Really felt the game was there to be won (as it was last week) so was a bit surprised to see Foxy put on as a striker for the last 10! Great to come back from 2 down today, so can't fault the effort. Millar didn't really have a lot to do, and had no chance for the second which was so sloppy from us. Given the Forfar strikeforce on show today and our opening 30 minutes, I'm happy with a point. But we need to turn some of these draws into wins. Inability to win games is what draws teams into relegation battles. On to next week. Sent from my HTC One A9s using Tapatalk
  9. My pal suggested that Hamish had asked for a lift back, and Ross Campbell had only just found out: hence his over-reaction on leaving the pitch.
  10. Raith definitely seemed there for the taking this afternoon. Think we played very well in spells first half especially, and while 1 up hoped we might create chances but nothing too clear cut. Awful/unlucky goal to concede. Their first half injuries probably forced their hand a bit second half, so perhaps a bit lucky there. Can understand our changes of Watson and Campbell to hold the game back, but with an agitated home crowd on Raith's back, I'd have loved to see Henderson and Antoniazzi full of running have a go at them final 15. Good away result. More of the same next week v Forfar please.
  11. Montrose v East Fife

    Agree with Ivo above. Looked far more assured and confident / able going forward with the young lads Antoniazzi and Henderson second half. If Cavanagh is back I'd slot him in as well as he's been positive and full of running the games I've seen him this season. Excellent first for EF, and we will play better sides than them this season, and I was under no illusion this would be an easy season, but those sorts of games you have to be tighter at the back and put chances away. Still, it's early doors yet and well done East Fife.
  12. Montrose v East Fife

    A Montrose win and we'd be 8 points clear of bottom spot after only 5 games. Here's hoping.
  13. Come On Ye Mo - Montrose FC 2018/19

    Would be excellent deal if it proves to be the case.
  14. Montrose v Brechin

    Agree with all above: was a really strange game. Should have been well clear by half time, and added some extra in the second half, credit to their keeper pulling off some good stops from Rennie, Antoniazzi and Dillon. And yet Brechin could have gone in at 2-2 and troubled us for large parts of second half. Good to grind out the win though. Tireless running from Henderson all day. Was unlucky to fresh air one of his second hand chances in the box. Work rate of him versus that of Rennie was a little worrying in the final 15 minutes. Some of Watson's tackling was superb today. Third in the league, and second in the Angus mini league. Good start to the season!
  15. Come On Ye Mo - Montrose FC 2018/19

    Not a vintage performance tonight, felt a bit pre-season friendly first half. Cavanagh and Foxy in particular impressed for me, Cavanagh for his legs all over the park and Foxy for his solid distribution all night long. Mackenzie saving well from Skelly, Callaghan and then Foxy from almost the halfway line. Good to get a few players pitch time, although I don't see Fergie and Callaghan starting many games as wing back combo (both did alright though).
