  1. Watching the AstraZeneca news with interest. I understand the line that the risk of dying from Covid is greater than the risk of a blood clot. How does that equation work for younger people though? I’m looking forward to getting the vaccine as much as anyone, but being younger and getting it later might allow them to figure out whether it is safe or not I guess? I assume we have no say about which vaccine we get, or will that be different in June/July?
  2. I was looking at this book on EBay. Is it worth buying?
  3. I read this in the League 1 version of this thread. The Sons Supporters Trust previously issued a statement of opposition to the Colt Clubs concept and it is my understanding that they soon may be planning a poll to canvass the views of their circa 400-strong membership, the results of which would be conveyed to the Dumbarton FC Board of Directors. It would be accompanied by a reminder that whilst club Directors are club guardians at a point in time the decision they may soon be asked to make on their watch re Colt Clubs could potentially be both wrong on several counts and irrevocable for senior club football in this country. Above all, they cannot allow themselves to become primarily focused on any financial inducements.
  4. I have said it before on here but I would just like to reiterate... If we vote in favour of the colts proposal and it goes through, my interest in following Stranraer will disappear. My financial contributions to the club might be worth less than whatever else is on offer, but I’m sure I won’t be the only one that would be totally fed up if that scenario comes to pass.
  5. Did anyone hear the Aberdeen fan on Sportsound last night? Suggested Eddie Howe as an ambitious but definitely possible appointment. Did i read correctly that Derek McInnes was on £17k/£18k per week at Aberdeen it was that at Bristol City?
  6. I suppose that answer doesn’t really help in this scenario then...
  7. Is there any way to watch the Eredivisie in the UK apart from the one game a fortnight on Premier Sports?
  8. Brilliant. Well worth the £8. Hoping for a winnable tie next.
  9. Stranraer didn’t even show up for the first half. Once we started playing the outcome was never in doubt.
  10. I suppose this is a possible interpretation of the comment about the crowd at the Celtic under 19s game as I know it brought a lot of locals to Stair Park that otherwise wouldn’t have known where it was... I appreciate that is not what you were saying, although I’m sure that you could see that some fans could interpret the club’s potential support for the proposal in that way.
  11. That is all very fair. I suppose you would have to acknowledge that there are some people that would not support it under any circumstances. I appreciate that you have a responsibility to do what you perceive to be the best for the future of Stranraer FC, regardless of your personal opinion. Speaking only for myself, if the club was to vote in favour of such a proposal and it went through I would no longer be interested in watching League Two football. I’m sure there are others like me. My few hundred pounds a year built up over how ever many years may be worth less than what essentially amounts to a bribe though, so if it comes down to a business decision I suppose I wouldn’t be able to complain too loudly.
  12. “However Stranraer vice chairman Shaun Niven said last night: “We’ve always been open-minded about the proposal. We can see merit in it. “We’d obviously want to see the proposal before we make a decision but we won’t go in with a closed view. “We had an example a few years back where our biggest crowd of the entire season was for a youth league game against Celtic U19s on a wet Friday night. More than we got at any SPFL game that season.” Couldn’t believe this when I read it. It’s sad to think that instead being happy with those that choose or may choose to support Stranraer, we would rather attract the large number of glory hunters that we all know that live in the town.
  13. If the season had finished as it should have last year and we had been relegated in the usual manner, I’m fairly sure SF would have been out of the job. He really doesn’t deserve too much more time in the job. Part of me thinks failure to win next week could be the end. I’ve got a bad feeling about this season...
  14. Manager’s job has to be under serious pressure now...
