  1. And have surprisingly decided not to re-sign Mark Howard, who was excellent this season
  2. Fully agree. It was a frustrating watch from an Annan perspective. Edinburgh pressed well and Annan's long balls weren't working in the first half because of the wind. Edinburgh had the better chances first half, the shot off the bar was a cracker and Fleming did well with the scramble. There was an Annan handball in that scramble as a clearance was attempted and it hit a guy on the deck. His hand was raised as he was trying to get up, an English VAR would have given a pen, but thankfully this was real football where common sense was applied. Was never a corner in the first place anyway, Lowdon dummied it to let it run for a goal kick. I was happy to get to half time at 0-0, thinking the game would change when Annan had the wind, but the wind stopped during the break and City came out faster and sharper. Two good goals and a deserved lead before the weather came in. Annan could have still got back into it but some poor decision making upfront slowed down potentially dangerous attacks. Disappointed, but not deflated. Annan could still get back in to this and can definitely play better, whereas that's the best I've seen City play this season. Great turnout from both sets of fans. I enjoyed the wee ultras too, I hope EC embrace them instead of issuing statements discouraging them.
  3. Probably going to be tight, both legs. I'm going for Annan by the same scoreline they beat Forfar. 1-1 at Ainslie, 1-0 Annan at Galabank. Posts and bars will be struck. Strange of the BBC to clash both legs with this on Alba with both legs of ICT v Arbroath on BBC Scotland, but fair play to Edinburgh City only charging a tenner a ticket, got mine already Hopefully a decent crowd at both games
  4. Nah, I saw Dunn play for Cowdenbeath at Stranraer, he looked out of his depth in the worst team in the league at that level. Nditi on the other hand looked good for Forfar in League 1, which obviously got him the step up in the first place. Remember the home game against Killie when he was played at LB and kept Chris Burke quiet all game, after Burke had starred for Killie on TV the week before? I thought Nditi looked like being Queens' best defender at the start of the season, until he was shifted into midfield. Another season in League 1, being played in the right position, and I think he could become a decent player. Needless to say, I would've kept him.
  5. I really enjoyed that the other night. Annan were obviously fired up and although either side could have taken the lead, Annan being ahead at half time felt deserved. I agree they could regret not getting a second though, especially in that spell in the 2nd half when they were on top for a good while. A couple of good saves and a shot off the post Credit to Forfar as well though, they came back into it well and had chances, Hooper and Swinglehurst forced into some big blocks. Both sides were treating it like a one legged cup tie towards the end, great entertainment. I also thought the ball was out before Barnes got to it for Annan's goal, but on the highlights it's inconclusive, so I'll have to trust the linesman. As Forfar's twitter said, some "interesting" calls from the ref, but they went both ways. Harkins could've got a straight red, and at least one further booking, so he was lucky to leave the pitch when the manager decided rather than the ref. Could be a cracker at Station Park, but I'll take a stodgy 1-1
  6. If the playoffs had started 6 weeks ago I would've been confident of an Annan win over two legs, but they've completely lost the momentum they had and their form has dropped off a cliff. Hopefully Annan get off to a bright start so I can get some of that confidence back. I haven't seen much of League 1 this season so this may be misplaced optimism, but I think the winners of this tie will go up.
  7. For a fanbase that doesn't like the colour orange, they don't half seem to use a lot of it in their displays!
  8. This annoys me with VAR. If the VAR is taking a while to check it, why not send the ref over to the monitor and they can discuss it whilst they're both looking at it? 3 and a half minutes is still excessive of course, but it would've been 3 and a half minutes less in this instance.
  9. Anyone here behind the goal see if McInroy's shot was on target? I'm pretty certain it was, should be his goal, not an OG
  10. In a season wearing a kit with a picture of the squad who won the Challenge Cup and the third tier, Queens have managed to reach both the Challenge Cup Final, and the third tier. Don't think that was the intended inspiration.
  11. I'm certain the shot was on target but would've been easily saved by Rae if East hadn't have deflected it. If I'm right that the shot was on target, then by definition it is McInroy's goal and to call it an OG isn't just extremely harsh on Euan East, but not actually correct. I actually thought that Collum did well today. There were some questionable calls and non-calls, but a lesser referee could've lost control and flashed a lot more cards. If that's Collum's explanation of the catch, fair enough. For the other handball shout, Collum explained to Wullie that it had hit above the t-shirt line. Wullie seemed to accept this so fair enough. That is shocking. I knew it was bad, but not THAT bad!
  12. Now that would be funny, some crazy late rule change deducting a point per divot?
  13. Ditto, pretty much #Flagle #51 3/6 https://www.flagle.io
  14. Tried to be clever there, didn't need to be #Flagle #50 3/6 https://www.flagle.io
  15. Usual story, starting country played it's part. First square I was given was a massive help too. Then just a case of picking the first country I could think of in that area who's flag I couldn't rule out. #Flagle #49 2/6 https://www.flagle.io
