  1. The trialist keeper has started and looked OK apart from fumbling the ball in the deck to gift them the goal..but his distribution with the ball looks really good. Confident with crosses and stood up well to block a shot there as they ran in.
  2. Two points there really. The cup is farcical and far too early to start. Most seasons squads are still being formed and players signed when it starts. Absolute joke of a cup now. Also we are not fishing in the same pool as Peterhead. Hamilton yes but I'd be expecting us to be planning a bit longer term than just this season and hopefully we are after future championship level younger players from league 1 as well as some Championship and even Prem cast offs. It's our first season down here and so we could still attract a decent player depending on whether the budget for wages etc is there to compete with bottom end Championship clubs.
  3. Dunno Peter Gant looked like he had a clue during our early League Cup games. We all know where the Pars ended up and how quickly that changed once the league started. Knew I'd lost my 20 quid bet for the title after 3 league games...
  4. Rename it the Pre-season Cup and be done with it. More Mickey Mouse than the Challenge and Fife cups almost ffs.
  5. Anyone away to the game tonight and doing updates for us? [emoji16][emoji106]
  6. Glad to see the authorities saw sense not to have 4 massive city clubs playing in Edinburgh on the same day. A win chalked up for common sense!
  7. Fitness. New manager familiarity. New playing styles &/or tactics. New players settling if in early enough. Confidence (hopefully) and remembering how to win would be nice. Definitely not pointless
  8. Would you take Murray back in the centre of defence now he has left Killie?
  9. Just had an email thanking us for passing 1200 ST sold.
  10. I was dubious on the collar myself but went to see it today and got myself one. Another grower/see it in person top
  11. Narrow formation may suit the smaller narrow pitches (assuming they are narrower pitches)
  12. Is that to replace the missing steak in the EEP batches? Sounds good to me though. A free sample with every ST would be a nice bonus to see if its a goer
  13. Think you'll miss xmas with the family and be out your box in Kelty or Ballin gary?
  14. Was hoping to see Chalmers fall over as his ankle gave way doing a one legged jump on the pre season vid there. Granted we would be stuck wi him but he would be out at least. I fear we are stuck with him anyway...
  15. Going by our recent form in the announcement front, we will put something out tomorrow or Tuesday but they'll have been signed at the end of last week.
  16. Aye midfield is still weak and keeper. Forget forwards for now tbh. Midfield is still weak asf
  17. On the strikers situ, I don't think they can be judged too harshly based on last season. The managers were shit and the midfield was even worse. We played a lone striker for a long period so that reduces play time massively as well. Shit managers and shite coaching was a major major factor last season. Fresh start and so being optimistic [emoji23]
  18. I think they should be announcing it.make the young guys feel welcome and part of something good. Get them off flying from the start
  19. Volunteers learning at home no doubt = lack of knowledge and experience on how to do it right. 60 something Jock, a retired mechanic has previous web design training on YouTube.
  20. Season tickets need to offer some discount on gate prices so if we dropped the gate price, the ST price would need to drop further. Something I'm guessing they can't afford to do.
  21. A bit of a leap but I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and put it down to the egotistical managers in charge having the own ideas that weren't working but stuck to it
  22. Coaching at the club seemed off for me too.look at Wilson. Leaves us and is rehabilitated and playing at Greenock within a few weeks. Graham looks a player before and after being at us and was pish with us. The common denominator is us and our coaching team. Hopefully Shields is moved to the Academy and the first team staff is all new under McPake.
