  1. You should be with that level of ambition 😀
  2. Ken, what about the number on here too. Envious?
  3. Okay fair enough but there’s been St Johnstone, Kilmarnock and Dunfermline who’ve been at rock bottom which you’ve also failed to mention. I’m guessing your interest in our plight is only a passing one so your concern about where we’re headed is not worth much.
  4. Here’s a new low, every chance Peterhead could end up with more points than us....
  5. Nah, considering all the firefighting that goes on at our club I’d go back as far as Jeffries.
  6. Please expand on the “Clyde route” and it’s relation to our “entitlement”?
  7. Look, we hadn’t been in the lowest/seaside leagues in 40 years before last season. We’ve had some bad seasons but at least it was at a decent level. Now we’re shit at a lower level and it’s quite hard to swallow. It’s not that hard to grasp.
  8. MR the old guy behind the curtain trying to fool everyone?
  9. Good luck to the team tonight, I think we’ll need it. Incidentally (it’s not really relevant to what’s going on just now and I know he’s pretty I unpopular by some of us but it just came into my head), but Lee Millers final cameo appearances really does draw to a close the playing era of Brockville. Took a long time but thought it was worth mentioning.
  10. I agree. The fact is we haven’t been in the SPL since May so it’s convenient to point at that as the start of the downfall but it’s not. Even revenue for the club was great around the middle of the decade and the academy had borne some fruit which we prospered from. 2016/17 was like, in music terms, “the difficult second album” because it was a grind that season (John Baird said he saw Luca Gasparatto’s body shape and realised the newcomers were going to be a downgrade) but we still finished second. Summer transfer window 2017 was the start of the decline imo.
  11. Okay, here goes, on field positives since August 2017: Zak Rudden Declan McManus The Wolves on-loan keeper Paul Dixon’s improvement Charlie Telfer this season Gomis and Connolly in spells Falkirk 6-1 Dundee United Jan 18’-Apr 18’ under Hartley Jan 19’-Mar 19’ under McKinnon Theres been wins and perhaps the odd decent performance from team/individual too but the above are the stand out positives in a sea of shite.
  12. Dunfermline was challenge cup no? Yes it was the cup. See if anyone wants a reminder of results in any given season, just go to this page: https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/byseason/results.php?year2=2018 This is the link for 2017/18 but just go to the archive for any season.
  13. Yeah I totally agree with the “having credit in the bank” comment, I think that counts for a lot with football fans generally. Like Jefferies and McCall though, things ended on a very sour note though. Wouldn’t it be nice, for once, a managerial tenure with us didn’t end in either results falling off a cliff or acrimony.
  14. Pretty much the exact same point I made. It was strange Hughes went against the formula that was working well for him. Holts claim about “they’re young boys at the coal face” doesn’t carry much water when you consider we had young boys making a good fist of it in the SPL, with a mix experience too.
  15. It started earlier than appointing May. Results went downhill from Gretna 2-0 (the worst top flight team ever) in Jan 08’ then signing Dad’s Army to move to “the next level” that summer.
  16. Hard work is very important but it’s not the be all and end all. What I mean is, maybe having one player who hasn’t busted his gut, maybe a bit on the lazier side, has just that wee bit of extra energy to go on a mazy and get the winner late on. We don’t really have that in our current team but, well, wasn’t wee Richie Cadette almost fondly thought of as being a lazy git!
  17. All the stuff about “smiles on faces”, “how do you get that?” and “well, it’s putting a shift in” are all a bit annoying but, on reflection, maybe it needs saying.
  18. I know M and Ms time ended badly and they were out of their depth but they did get things going again after McKinnon left. McKinnon must’ve had something half decent in place for them two to get a string of results together because I think all they did was bring a much needed freshness in but nothing of substance. It was correct to get rid of McKinnon at that time but I do actually think he/was is an okay manager who could’ve done a decent job for us.
  19. What about some of the posters on here? Smikka Smikka Smoodoozo anyone ?
  20. I think he might be the Dumber in the double act based on his Facebook. Him and Cracks. had 2 go B 4 it wiz 2 late!!... Get them in for a bounce factor after McKinnon but what were the BOD thinking?!
  21. Somebody mentioned earlier that he imagined this is what it feels like to be a crack addict, hating the club just now but still checking for updates. I know where he’s coming from. I got absolutely ruined and spoiled from the start supporting us and it leaves it’s mark. I was 8 years old and my 3rd and 4th games going along were 7-1 v Raith Rovers and 5-1 v Clydebank, followed by a fantastic championship victory, followed by a mainly exciting few years after that. The first two games before that were the ropey first part of Jefferies reign but really, virtually zero shite to deal with, just joy. The chemicals in my brain are predisposed in a certain way because of what I watched right from the get-go. No hoofball. No over-thought shapes. None of that. It’s not like I really appreciated it at the time because it’s happening at young age. I just can’t see a generation of young fans from the local area putting up with the utter rubbish that is served up.
