Think there will be a lot of tinkering in these games as the management get to see their plans in action.

Sounds a lot more positives than negatives though.

Definitely alot of positives to take from today. It was a good run out for the players most importantly. First game is all about building fitness.

Since it is a pre-season friendly we're not bound by the rules about publishing highlights before midnight so here are the highlights from today's game.

Good highlights as always, Davo Geez stonewall penalty

I'd say so too, but I don't think the rushed wayward pass from midfield (Hendry?) helped much.

Aye it was a poor pass from hendry and a stonewaller. Given I had to watch it a few times to see who got the touch though, you can forgive the ref for getting it wrong.

Just watched the highlights impressed with 22 was that Bowie? Had good link up play and a bit of pace. Hendry is going to be a handful and keeping him fit and protected is going to be key looks like there is still work to do they had a stonewall of a penalty we got away with and one headed off the line.

TBH much rather see the tip tappy stuff across the back four trying to draw opposition forward or in hope of our front players making space than hoofing it aimlessly up the park

The point being though the front players are making no moves into space. In doing that we should be playing it over the defence which wasn't happening at all, particularly in the first half. I think Bowie would be a great we player with a player of height alongside him, not being stuck out in the wing.

Thats been a problem with us for years front players not making moves,one player whos movement off the ball last year was good was buchanan funnily enough.I,m a play from the back,through midfield type guy but understand what your saying,we should be adaptable though where we can do both

Agree with most of the comments on here. We probably just about deserved the win. Of the new players Munro looked confident but wasn't tested much, MacDonald got up and down the park well and looked an upgrade on Crane, Mendy didn't convince early on but went on to play well, Miller was solid enough, and Anderson did a decent job up front. Victoria was pretty hopeless barring a couple of fancy flicks and tricks. Let's hope he's eased out of the side early on.
The two trialists were also disappointing and I wouldn't be unhappy to see them shown the door. No 9 in particular looked slow and unfit.
Of the youngsters Bowie showed more potential but just needs to keep a cooler head in the opposition box while Watson unfortunately is looking unlikely to ever be good enough for us.

I thought Watson played well today. Like everyone else he wasn't sharp, but didn't look out of place. Granted it was league 2 opposition. Bowie just looked desperate to get a goal having missed a couple of chances in the first half, there's definitely a player there, hopefully mcglynn and smudger can help him realise his potential.

I'm counting the hours until that day in August that Nando knocks seven shades of shite out of Hamill.

Can someone tell my why folk hate Hamill?
Anyone who can, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I think it dates back to when he played for hearts (?) and dived to win a pen late on when things where all square.

Haud the fucking bus.

The same game, he went head to head with Dougie Hill.

Dougie leaned forward and shitebag Hamill hit the dirt like he was taken out by a sniper, outcome, the ref was conned into sending off oor Dougie

Who was the real shite bag? The guy who feigned being hit? Or oor Douglas who didn't hit the wee shite.

I was still playing at the time so wasn't at the game. My version was based off of hazy recollection.

Hamill tried it on, Dougie took the bait and pressed his head against Hamill who then recoiled quicker than JFK on Dealy Plaza.

Because he takes the abuse, and gives it back in spades. Actually getting embarrassing now, seeing guys in there 50’s still doing it.
