Well that was hard fought! Not a lot between the sides in an evenly contested game. Apart from the last few minutes when airdrie through the kitchen sink at us, we didn’t look like conceding.0
Good to see Dale Carrick getting on well. Felt sorry for him when he was with us, clearly a good player who’s career was hampered with injury. I remember Lee McCulloch stamping on his knee when we played them at ibrox!0
Anderson has had about two decent games but has been shite since we played Clyde. Put a tricky striker against him and he can’t cope.
As for Nisbet, good luck to him. Didn’t think he would have done as well as he has in the championship. Had he still been with us, we probably wouldn’t have seen Bowie develop as well as he has. Ziggy will go on to have a far better career than Nesbit will.1
God, the parties in Kirkcaldy must be amazing.
Moon, your profile pic couldn’t be more appropriate!2
Zico’s alter ego posts are right up there with the guy who posted that he had buried a bag of the clubs cash under the pitch and wanted help finding it before we dug up the grass and put the astro down!
Is Zico/steakandgravy aware of how IP addresses work? I’d love a mod to confirm them being from the same computer!0
Not sure why all you idiots attack steakngravy constantly.I also know Bowie’s grandfather and his ankle was keeping him out.
I fucking love this forum0
Massive couple of weeks for us coming up. I hope Mcglynn isn’t tempted to rush back players like Hendry, Miller and Bowie but you can understand why he would be desperate to have them back!0
Airdrie support weren't in the North Stand. We had the South Stand the day we won promotion.
Tory Boy, I owe you an apology. I assumed you were talking about the Scottish Cup QF in 1995 when airdrie brought a big support through. Serves me right for being a lazy git and not reading the thread properly!1
The crowd figure from that game will just be made up. Close to kick off here were still loads of Airdrie fans still outside so they just opened the exit gates and stewards stood with buckets collecting money.
No they didn’t. I was selling programmes at the North turnstiles that day and can confirm that’s 100% bullshit.2
What on earth has happened to Steven Anderson since the Clyde game? He’s looked our weakest defender ever since.0
I don’t think S Anderson is good enough to defend in a back 4. He’s too slow. I think he needs a couple of centre backs beside him to get the best out of him.
Grant Anderson has been deployed at wing back in the past, could that have been a better option than Mackay in a game that we knew we needed to attack in?
Why have Victoria and Tait (until last night) been given any game time off the bench lately? We know we are going to need these guys eventually, not getting them on the park won’t be helping their match sharpness!
Why on earth would you start with Allan and Baird up front? That pairing must be a centre backs dream! Neither is mobile or creative!
I’m a massive fan of John Mcglynn, I think he cares massively for the club but his selection and tactics are baffling at times.1
Yeah, there was so much flair and class in that side that a player like Ally Graham was always going to stand out for the wrong reasons. You tend not to appreciate a player that does the ugly side!
As an aside, the song that was sung about him when he left for Falkirk and they got relegated was genius! To the tune of Don’t look back in anger by Oasis...
Sooooo Ally can’t wait, he knows it’s too late cause they’re going on down...
I’m so glad to say, and don’t come back you w****r, I heard you say!0
He’s not on an apprentice contract but please continue.
Yes he is. He’s got a 2 year apprentice contract with an extra year for the year after.0
Dundee Utd cant afford him! None of them can he’s already priced out with their budgets.
How much money do you think we can realistically expect to get for a player on an apprentice contract?0
The Press reported that Arsenal and Dundee Utd were watching Bowie yesterday. It would be interesting what sort of money we would get if a big team from down south came in for him. We won’t have any chance of getting out of this league without him and Vaughan though!0
Changing the subject slightly but what on earth has happened to Dan Armstrong since he came back? Apart from that free kick against Falkirk he’s done nothing and looks disinterested.1
That was purgatory today. How we're through to the next round I have no idea. That first 30 minutes Peterhead absolutely destroyed us and even after they ran out of steam they still had comfortably the better of things.
Taking Baird off was a mental decision unless he was carrying a knock of some kind.
I thought putting him and Allan up front together was a poor decision and a waste of a substitution. He didn’t look happy when he came off.0
We need to drop some of these jobbers for Tuesday and take a gamble with youth. Thankfully Davo's banned, he was shite today.
Gamble with youth? You do know we don’t have a youth team right? The only youth we have who didn’t start today was Dylan Tait and he will be a certain to play on Tuesday due to injury and suspensions I’d imagine.1
Totally forgot about Booth! He was a great player for us. I actually swithered about putting Allan Walker in the side until I remembered about how much of an arse he was when he left! Craig Wilson was a contender at right back too.0
Marv wasn't this decade.
Played for us in 2009 according to the never incorrect source that is Wikipedia0
Who would be in everyone's team of the past decade? (or whatever the time frame is the ffp are running with) there's a few certainty's for me such as mcgurn but I'm struggling with a few positions so will see if anyone else jogs my memory before I post my team.
*Was going to put Murray at left back back wanted to put Laurie in the side!0
I’d have Graham and Baird before Tade and Baird.1
I think he said 1 in 9 not 1 in 1
Yup, he played 9 games and conceded 1 goal! Tell me I’m rang?0

Also, to the fans who booed Allan when he came on, get a long hard look at yourselves! I’m not his biggest fan either but that’s properly out of order!
