The team I would line up for the EK game. 
 

Martin

miller 

hall 

Dixon 

McCann 

hethrington 

Ross 

nesbitt 

Dowds 

sammy 

weekes. 
 

if McKay and Williamson out for a lengthy time that back four could do with some consistency to try and get the best out of it.  A case for keena to start in order for him to try and improve fitness levels but would like to see the other strikers given a run out.

Be interesting to see which players go out their way to nail Lee Miller as I'd imagine there's a fair few of them don't like him. Perfect game to give a few of the youngsters a shot at it as well as try something new. I'd go with the following

Martin
Miller Hall Lemon Mccann
Weekes Telfer Hetherington Williamson
Sammy Keena

He has at least one screw up a game though and whilst other players may be lucky enough to get away with them his invariably end up in a goal. We were two goals to the good today so we got away with it but if we're playing queen's park or another side in a big match that's in the balance and he does that then it will cost us. Surely isn't asking too much to get a centrehalf that can get through a whole game in league one without screwing up .

This is spot on. Hall does look better with Dixon as a central defensive partner. No matter how good a game Hall has he will cost us points at some stage this season if we have to keep playing him

Incidentally, hats off to the club for the vulnerable fans area. 7 of us in a block for 400 was overkill perhaps but it was well intentioned - and that block would have sat empty anyway (in fact, 2 blocks were empty).  The stewards policed it as well as they could but I imagine with a return to restriction free stadiums, this might not continue.

 

Felt weird having both ends singing "We're, blue, we're white" etc

This is great to watch at times. Morrison, Nesbitt (😍) and McGuffie are a joy to watch and are going to tear apart some teams this season and Telfer pulling the strings and ripping it up in the middle of the park. Not perfect we’re still a bit suspect at the back and final ball could be better but night and day compared to the shite we’ve been served up for the last few years. Best football we’ve played for fucking ages.

New captain tae in Stevie Hetherington.

How did stevie hetherington play ? Maybe now he's captain his booking count might go down😂😂, he was always a favourite at alloa though,  wholehearted player

When I was in on Friday it was said that the area would continue for as long as the people who sat there needed it.

He was exceptional today, kept the ball ticking over as well as picking up every second ball and mopping everything up.

Well I suppose there's not many sides in this league going to bring serious numbers for that stand, so blocks will always be available.

Another great interview with Sheerin. Not happy with losing that goal and made it very clear by the sound of it. Good to hear that he knows Sammy E is very raw but can see his qualities and when we can use them. A lot better than the bland interviews of the last few seasons

What a difference having an attack minded team, who know their roles, are set up well and play with hunger & confidence. Makes a huge difference to the crowd & atmosphere too.
 

Williamson & McKay in for Miller & Hall and that’s a very decent starting X1 for this level. Although I believe we will have another striker in soon. 
 

Great to be back at the stadium and was fantastic to see & hear the fans throughout. Nice touch with the minutes silence too. 
 

Sounds like the non starters will play on Wednesday. Martin must be given a gig in goals.

Sheerin very competent and engaging in his post match interviews. Skirted around the squad numbers, so as mentioned many times, it certainly looks like there’s a Number 9 still to arrive. There certainly seem to be plenty of chances being created, but still not a lot of goals in the team.

On the surface, a point against Cove and beating Peterhead by the odd goal in three isn’t that great, but performances seem to point to something better just over the horizon.

Shane Lavery scoring in the English champ there....what if blah blah blah 

Were raving about him on sky sports. Yet McKinnon would rather pick that diddy Aaron Jarvis instead. Sums up that cretin completely.

Absolutely loved being back at the football today and I was really impressed with the team. The more games we play the better we’ll get. We’re the team to catch IMO.

Very difficult to judge sammy but my first impression was he reacted to every challenge and that’s a recipe to get sent off.

Important to remember that the squad are basically 3 games down from where we'd usually be at this stage of the season with quite a few missing a chunk of training as well. Hoping we'll continue to improve with match sharpness. Having Williamson back should make a big difference as well

ps Sheerin says we're Barcelona

Indeed. It could have been. But it wasn't. 

Performances like that will see you back where you belong in the championship.

HaHa - who was your number 12? What a clown!
