  1. Wouldn't be like a McCall managed team to be running out of ideas, inspiration and energy post Christmas would it?
  2. Its a pity your players didn't think similarly, in injury time you had a free kick in the opposing half wide on the right hand side. For some reason your player kicked it out of play, down near the corner flag, like they would do in rugby union for a line out. An absolutely baffling decision.
  3. Hurting? You are kidding aren't you? Maybe about 30 years ago it would've bothered me.
  4. Amazing the amount of Killie fans who seem to have suddenly remembered their p&b logins they mysteriously lost towards the end of February.
  5. How does 442 affect workrate or the ability to defend near post corners? The state of some of our fans on here from week to week is unbelievable.
  6. He's the same price as Nick McAllister and a bigger price than Salkeld. Clearly they've done lots of work putting this market together. 14/1 anytime price is brilliant value.
  7. Lewis Lovering of Benburb is being linked in the Evening Times to some teams in the Championship, including my own. What type of player is he and could he realistically make the step up from WOS to the Championship?
  8. Scott Brown looking to rip up his Aberdeen contract immediately. A candidate to be our new Assistant Manager? I don't know if he'd still be looking to play or not but joining a fellow Fifer at Championship level might be quite appealing as he looks to get into coaching and management.
  9. For me he's in the team to work a variety of roles, to get forward in support of the striker/s, to nullify any threat from the left side of the opposition and to have the defensive nous to fill in if Houston overlaps him. A collection of thankless, unfashionable, unpopular tasks when you think of each of them in isolation but even less so collectively. Very few players currently in the squad could manage it. It means he's seen less in the opposition box but as was seen on Saturday if he takes the attention of the opposition, Houston can benefit on the overlap.
  10. The JustGiving page setup in memory of the late Colin McCue is live if anyone would be so kind as to make a small donation. Thanks. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/oneforcolin?utm_term=QN3v8Bmb6
  11. Attended the game as a neutral and thought the Airdrie midfield 3 of Easton, Frizzell and Agnew were the main difference between the teams. They controlled the game when it was needed and broke well when they had the ball. The home sides subs didn't seem to have the impact they would have hoped and Morrison was the busier keeper for most of the game. Smith will get the headlines for his 2 goals (could've had his hattrick before going off) but Easton was my MOM. A class act, certainly at L1 level.
  12. You have seen Championship games right?! I've seen some LOI games on my travels, there is a drop off for sure but their top end teams would be on a par with most of our Championship.
  13. It was you who quoted more than two as potentially starting the game. Who are the several players incapable of attacking? Genuinely interested I'm not saying for a minute that individually or collectively yesterday was acceptable but it's a long way off being described as horrific. Short memories on here.
  14. That's your opinion fair enough. The stats throughout the game show we weren't defensive just ineffective. Throwing O'Connor, Gondoh, Rowe and Tomi would've seen us overrun more than we actually were. Especially in wide areas. There's got to be the right balance which the management team have to find, that's their job. Gibson is rightly seen as the panto villain but he's still a very effective player at this level and a threat both defensively and going forward.
  15. I don't think it was defensive, just not very effective. Especially for a home game where we should've been looking to get on the front foot from the first whistle to get the three points. Looking at it you can see Bullen's looking to get McKenzie, Maxwell, Dempsey and McInroy in, around and playing off Ashford. With the two full backs looking to link up from wide areas. All good on the counter attack away from home, not so at home against a stubborn defence setup to frustrate and largely sit in. We didnt get in behind Queens yesterday due to a combination of our deficiencies, pitch and weather conditions and the opposition. Not very effective.
  16. It really hasn't or certainly shouldn't. If we start feeling sorry for ourselves that's when the problems really will start. It was a 1-0 defeat yesterday with valid reasons for it. We weren't great, that's for sure, but we were far from a lost cause either. Nothing was going to be straightforward to stay up, all 5 teams are still tightly placed. We've got more to be positive about than not, something I definitely wouldn't have said or thought under Hopkin or Duffy. Keep believing.
  17. We started sluggishly yesterday, stood off far too long for their goal and despite a bit of a late flurry, ultimately got what we deserved. O'Connor's effort right at the end summed up our overall quality in the final third as well. People taking extra touches or a dreadful first touch to begin with. Nobody actually picking their head up for that final pass or cross, just swing it in and hope for the best. Their keeper didn't have an awful lot to do. Our fate is still very much in our own hands and everyone else drawing means it's not as bad as it could've been. We might actually be a team that at the moment playing away from home suits better. It happens in football and it's for the management team to find a solution to.
  18. Officials not giving Rangers a decision at Ibrox. You've got to love it.
  19. The competition in Scotland didnt seem to hold back Rangers last week. The OF change the narrative to suit the particular argument. Scottish champions should be putting on a better showing against the Norwegian champions over two legs, surely? 5-1 on aggregate deary me. Circle the wagons for the inevitable "it's the league that matters" type of quotes.
  20. John Hartson just said that Celtic perhaps aren't yet ready to face the big teams in the competition like Bodo Glimt. Tha'ts the Norwegian champions who play in a 7500 capacity stadium against the mighty Celtic. Staggering that the media don't call it out for what it really is.
