Nah he’s every bit as bad as Hall potentially even worse. At 28 and played over 200 games he’s never going to improve. It’s his lack of intelligence more than anything else that infuriates me.

Nah, any CB who has their tongue sticking out the side of their mouth when trying to trap a ball is deeply suspect.

You just hope if Watson is partnered with either of them he isn't dragged down to their level quickly. Watson solid enough as he is isn't blessed with pace to cover their f**k ups. 

Certainly Hall McKay & Miller seemed to morph into a critical mass that the introduction of only ATS wasn’t enough to break, but the introduction of Watson should hopefully limit the damage that McKay and Miller can inflict…….but McKay especially needs to be kept on a short leash. Watson and Dixon should at least give the front line a fighting chance of out scoring the opposition.

"Half Chance" Charlie Lytwyn went one better with a league debut hatrick v Ayr Utd in 1985 https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=1986&id=202&type=1

Charlie Lytwyn eh?

Was there that day. First half hat-trick and my abiding memory is Lamont screaming at him the whole of the second half.

I heard they are still trying to agree a fee with Clyde.  We want to pay in installments and add-ons whilst Clyde want more up front.


Speaks volumes of the character of those who sanctioned the move to pay actual cash for a rapist. Some things are more important than a game of football for goodness sake

Funnily enough, I was thinking Simon Murray the other day. He doesn’t seem to even be on the bench for Queens. Presume he must be injured, would take him in a heartbeat. 

The Simon Murray of his hibs, Dundee united days you’d bite your hand off at league 1 level but unfortunately the serious knee injury he picked up playing in South Africa where he was out 15 months has really hampered him. From what I’ve been told there’s a real possibility that he’s going to be out for the rest of the season and hasn’t played since early December since injuring himself against Montrose 

Prior to injuring himself, since that game where he scored at Falkirk, he’s genuinely been dire for a lot of games. Very likeable player with his effort but he just doesn’t justify anywhere near his probable high wages for this level. It’s a real shame as I was expecting him to hit the heights of Goodwillie, megginson etc this season

I heard 2 names at Xmas, one was DGW, which although it hasn't come off yet doesn't appear to be due to the lack of trying. Time is certainly running out for the other but if we were to somehow get it over the line, there would be a lot of happy punters out there... a real coup!!!

The Morrison rumour may well be setting the wheels in motion to finally make it happen?

 

Scott Robinson?

To be fair there has been much worse than Sammon over the past few seasons. I know he's pish but not to the levels of Wilson or Dennon "fuckin" Lewis pishiness

Still wouldn’t want him back though……

As a physicist, I really should point out that perhaps Deans was attempting to quote the genius Paul Dirac, discoverer of antimatter, that night.

After giving a talk one day, a member of the audience said "I don't understand the equation at the top of the board there". Dirac said nothing for the longest time until the host asked him if he would answer the question.

"That wasn't a question, it was a statement" he replied.

Just for a bit of fun given the novelty of Kabia's double on Saturday, I went trawling on bettermeddle to see how many Bairns players I could find who got 2 (or more) goals on their League debut.  So far I've found four - a couple are more recent than Id imagined.  There might easily be others I've missed 

B Hall (!) https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=2020&id=322&type=1 but that was v Forfar so didnt count

L Longridge (2nd spell) https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=2018&id=319&type=1 when we papped DUFC 6-1

M Higdon https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=2008&id=301&type=1  opening day thrashing of Gretna at Fir Park

"Half Chance" Charlie Lytwyn went one better with a league debut hatrick v Ayr Utd in 1985 https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=1986&id=202&type=1

Once you go pre transfer window of course a player could have made their debut any old time, maybe some other older Bairns will remember debut doubles or hatricks.  

Pretty sure Gareth Hutchison scored a double as a trialist against Livingston, turned the game around and promptly got a contract from Alex Totten.

Off the bench as I recall. Cant remember if he had signed or not so will bow to you on that.

I was in cooperage lane for some bizarre reason that day, and hence got my wee early teenage face in the papers going tonto when the third went in.

A great game.

That was Steven Craig wasn't it?
