  1. Criminal Justice Scotland Act from 1980 makes it a specific offence to take any can, bottle or other container which may be liable to cause injury into any football ground. Common sense being applied at a lot of smaller grounds which is fine until something goes wrong. This was apparent last night when those on the terracing had entered the ground with at least one bottle of booze and several flares and that banner. Trying to find out what the powers are for removing the banner in the ground but obviously the stewards have not been searching fans coming in and have missed the banner, which would be difficult to conceal, or just turned a blind eye to it. On the same thread, only to nip potential trouble in the bud, we should perhaps be introducing segregation in the stand. Would not be hard to station a steward at the first stairs to guide opposition fans to the far end of the stand.
  2. Great to be back yesterday and well done to the staff who made it possible. Decent performance by the team yesterday. Some great performances. Jamieson and Crighton look a good pairing and Wedderburn may be short on pace but will take no prisoners. We had a really good first half but the second half and the introduction of Tiffoney was decisive. Both goals were possibly avoidable. For the first Rudden was allowed to run free into the box and for the second by the time Mills decided to get onto Graham he was on the wrong side. Hard to be critical against a team 2 divisions above us and we look good for the league. Dunfermline are banging goals in for fun at the moment and that is a worry when we play them in Fife before the Binos. All in all we have had a couple of good performances and the fans are back.
  3. Didn’t realise there was a game on before the Nations favourites. Raheed Sterling now being described as a national treasure, it really is getting tedious and all too much
  4. Germany absolutely shocking, no interest in going forward, capitulated to them
  5. Sorry to see Hoppy go but we did not get much from him last year. Interesting that only 3 of last year's squad still remain, Corbett arriving on transfer deadline day, Graham and Smith both missed majority of the season through injury. Shows how much Swift thought of our squad when he arrived and how our high expectations were dashed. At least this year the squad is assembled well before the season starts and there should still be a couple of signings plus the Hibs loanees. Hopefully we will be back in the ground to cheer them on.
  6. Perhaps a condition was if a club, in addition to playing, offered a coaching role. Cannot think what else would be included and presumably EC are not full time.
  7. Option 3 looks good but hopefully with the same colour of shorts and socks
  8. Things starting to look good at the moment. For once we have made our signings early and not the last minute scramble that has seemed to plague us before. Should give the players time to bond and get to know each other. Phoned the club yesterday , thanked them for the offer of the season ticket money and told them it was a donation. Hope others follow suit and it may go towards another player. Onward and Upwards.
  9. Davidson at least sound convincing on occasion this clown exudes nothing.
  10. Fantastic gesture - thanks for the offer but keep the money as far as I am concerned.
  11. Manager must know what he is doing and will have explained his signing philosophy and plans in depth at his interview. They obviously feel he is the right candidate although we do not know how many and who were interviewed. As Neilly says we will know better after the first quarter. I think the worry comes from the fact that we are not signing the usual released dross that we think will do a job for us and seldom do. Just hope we are in the ground to enjoy it.
  12. I agree with what you are saying but why do you think they perform so badly with us? We look on paper to have a good team then nothing. It is very disappointing and frustrating. Paddy Flannery was one of these an almost goal every 2 games record for Dumbarton and then comes to us, looking forward to see him scoring on a regular basis and we got nil from him. Keith Wright was another.
  13. I don't think it is that we are too good to ship loads of BSC players in - it has been mentioned above if these players were the cream of the team then why has no other L2 sides came in for them sooner. There is knowing a players capability so hopefully Swift has that or we could be in deep trouble before Xmas. Hopefully they will be a be good enough and prove everyone wrong. I think that there is an expectancy at this time of the year that we will sign players we have seen and feel they are good enough rather than a number of players few of us will have seen nor have knowledge about.
  14. Start from scratch yet again. This will be an interesting season. Swift had better be in a decent position by Xmas or I fear the worst. Any club at the bottom will be panicking at that time.
  15. Agree mostly with above. It will be easier for you to make comment having seen them in the flesh that for others who have had to watch the broadcast. The broadcast fails to show positions and runs that players are making and often does not show a players other abilities. McGuigan and Halleron were certainly not fancied by Irons and I do not know if Swift has seen enough of them to make up his mind. I would be for keeping them. Blair and Biabi will, I imagine, be on a good wage and this could possibly be better spent. At times you expect so much more from them and yet they fail to deliver. Somebody needs to keep a close eye on Jack Bryden's future and should Hibs decide to release him at some point then we should move quickly. I would also like to see Ross Dunlop back at Ochilview but think that is unlikely. Quite liked what Swift had to say in his interview but we will wait and see who he signs and how we play. Hopefully he will have ran through the seasons videos and will have a better idea of who is staying and who is going.
