  2. Didn't expect this to happen. Any inside information as to why he left? Personal circumstances or got something else lined up? He's good enough to find another club at this level and play regularly.
  3. Hartley review of the game in the Evening Express. Echoes my and most Cove fans thoughts that Fyvie's challenge is careless. Agree with him that first half we created decent chances. Thought first half was the better half offensively for both sides. https://www.eveningexpress.co.uk/fp/sport/football/scottish-football/cove-rangers-fc/cove-rangers-boss-paul-hartley-unhappy-with-blair-yule-red-card-in-montrose-draw/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&amp&__twitter_impression=true

  5. Kerr's one of Mitch looked a bit of lunge and from behind/side. I was very close to it but it happens so fast. My initial reaction was a free kick certainly and he was lucky to avoid a card. I don't really want players booked frivolously it must be said. Scott's challenge on Webby was miss timed. He kind of spun round and was disorientated and tried to win the headed ball but got it wrong. Was definitely a yellow. Would have been a harsh red but seen them given over the years.
  6. Match highlights up on YouTube now. The pen was one but it was a stupid and needless foul from Fyvie who made an arse of trying to win the ball. Lyons certainly wasn't through on goal and still had work to do to get a shot off hence needless and careless. Cove had some clear cut chances 1st half but Flemming was outstanding. Upon reviewing the Blair Yule challenge which led to a second yellow I think that's soft. His eyes are on the ball and it's there to be won in the Montrose box. There is no malice or studs up. Letter of the law you can see why the ref gave a yellow but harsh in my opinion. Not every challenge like that in that area of the pitch is given as a yellow but it is what it is and Blair will miss the Peterhead game. If Blair's is a yellow then I think so is Kerr Waddell's on Mitch in the first half tbh. https://youtu.be/EIbP1RJ2K5k
  7. Shay is more a RB than wing back and he normally has Yule in front of him but saying that in the first half he supplied quite a few crosses. Harry Milne is a true wing back on the left side but is coming back from illness. What I've seen of Shay so far, he's fairly quick even at 33, positionally good and makes very few errors or gives away possession. Of the 8 summer signings we've made I give him pass marks, Vigurs is borderline, the other 5 aren't good enough and Ola hasn't played yet. Agree Mo need a striker or two. Set plays where the only time I thought Montrose looked threatening. Good luck against Alloa next week
  8. Take Morrison, who is undoubtedly one of the best players in L1, out of the Falkirk side and they are beatable (clearly). He along with Nesbitt are their goal threat and creativity. Falkirk still haven't addressed there striking woes, yet, and Miller and Hall at CB can give you chances.
  9. Stadium was built when we were in the Highland League to be fair. There is talk of extending the main stand and this needs to be done along with a few other things like drainage as you say! Not the most scenic of grounds in L1 granted. Ground improvements are needed.
  10. Exactly. We created chances today, played with more urgency but not to our normal levels. Missing a talented number 10 who will commit players. I think we'll start becoming stronger defensively. Our best back 4 and McKenzie I have no doubt will keep things tight(er). Need to be ruthless and firmly believe everything other than a win is unacceptable. The run of wins need to start now though. 8 points from 6 games isn't a good start.
  11. Haha. Well that's something. Like a headless donkey or with intent? Need to see him a few more times to make a judgement it seems.
  12. Hopefully you get that over turned! Sheran would have us higher than Hartley.
  13. At 1-0 today I thought we were looking good enough to be able to create a few more chances and build on that lead but wasn't to be. I even thought a clean sheet was on the cards. Even without a youth development, which would be welcome, a manager that could recruit better would make us substantially stronger than where we are now. 3 seasons in for Hartley and we have little outside our best XI. We need a strong string of results which we are capable of. I feel the tide is turning and we might accomplish that. Need a couple of loans in very soon to strength the core.
