Who on earth cares who he supports for goodness sake. One of our our best players of the past 15 years was a blooming Dunfermline fan and he gave everything. 

Who?

I believe he's referring to Blair Alston but I wouldn't ever have him as one of our best players.

For you, “eternal optimist”. For everyone else, this reads as “recreational substance user”.

So, just as we re-wrote the history books last season when we collapsed from first to fifth, you now reckon Cove are going to go one better by taking no more than 24 points from a potential of 42 points, while we take 45 points from a potential 45 points.

Lets just say we stay in the land of credibility and miraculously win 10, draw 3 and lose 2 (ending up with 62 points). Cove would then have to win 3, draw 3 and lose 8 of their remaining games.

Can we send Gary Holt to hang around their dugout?

Pretty sure he was an Aberdeen fan, his brother was and they hung around with at least 2 Aberdeen fans. (Larbert esp South Broomage was a smaller place in those days).

Add in the American link with Aberdeen, can you see the risk?

Might be wrong but, there wasn't a huge FFC following at Larbert High.

🤣

No it wasn’t. In any meaningful sense, South Broomage is essentially the same size as it was in 1967 after Spam Valley was builtYou’d be lucky if more than a couple of dozen houses have been built since then, and less than half a dozen since the 1990s.

I was LHS, and there was a healthy FFC support at the school. Other than that, you are spot on.

Just spend my days waiting on the wee pen emoji appearing on our twitter. Obviously the more signings we can make this window the better but the quality has to be right. Middle of the park is the one I'm worried about the most as we desperately need a bit of legs in there. Still have 5 loans available so there's plenty to work with there, Dundee United manager was just in the paper saying fringe players need to go out and get game time in order for them to bring more players in.

Would definitely be trying to get Neilson, Glass Appere or Butcher from them then.

Neilson would do for me. Could play him in the middle of the park as I think he showed last season he was more than capable with the ball at his feet. Loved a gallop up the park as well.

I thought in a very poor side Neilson looked pretty composed last year, I'd start him at CB with one of Dixon/ATS dropped and he could be cover for RB or DM too. Really hope it's a possibility but with Smith leaving he's probably more in their thoughts.

Actually agree. Against us your forwards looked strong and fast, particularly when the Livi boy came on, the midfield was woefully slow and sideways pass, not picking up the forwards runs until our 10 man team put another CB upfront leaving easy gaps to score. Surely your manager sees the problem- guess his problem is finding the right player and that may come in the Feb loan month. Cant see you beating Montrose with that midfield, they were far better against a poor us than you boys- unless your forwards play a blinder…..

Montrose won’t sit in like you did. We will get more space to play.

Would agree with this. That's certainly a vastly improved starting 11 on what we went in to the window with

If I was being greedy I'd want a new 4th striker on the bench in the place of Ross

I think that, if we play as badly as we did on Saturday, Montrose will thrash us. I'm hoping that the forecasted wind will be enough of a leveler to give us a decent chance. That and the possibility of a new midfield.

See we can use 5 from 9 subs now. Really not a fan of this at all. It puts garbage like Ross, Wilson, Weekes, Ompreon and Hetherington that step closer to getting some game time which is horrendous news.

Yeah, your right. Don't know why I had suggested otherwise tbh. Really only the houses at the old horse field.

I don't know what Spam Valley is, never heard that before. 

There wasn't a large FFC support in my year, mostly OF and the dons. There was a group but nothing spectacular.

You might well be right, when your down to 10 men you do sit in. But having watched Montrose , probably more times than you, they sit back, draw the team in, leave no space for the forwards and counter attack quickly.They have outstanding managers , who are smart and very tactical.  Only a view but your no 6 and the left sided boy could well be found out… but hey I will be too worried about trying to steal a win vs Peterheed!🤷‍♂️
