Keaghan Jacobs 🥰

What a guy, really struggled with injuries so he's barely played for 3 years or so but when he did he was a dependable player. Filled that 'midfield destroyer' role where he runs about planting folk. Doesn't do the pretty stuff but he'll run about and smash folk while getting stuck in. Scored a peach against Motherwell that I'll drop below as well:

Just catching up, are folk actually trying to claim that "tink" *isn't* a slur used against travellers?

I'm just a wee bit concerned that some will be lacking match fitness and quite a few now haven't played together before. Might take a bit of time to gel. 

True ! but real game time beats any amount bounce games and training sessions. They look like upgrades so its a case of play them and find out.

OK I've been out the country for a long time but was kind of shocked to see that word still in use.

I can accept some folk might use it not realising it's a slur against a particular ethnic group, but it's disappointing to see so many folk react in a negative way when someone correctly points out what it actually is.

Football stadiums and football forums would not be high on my list of places to witness positive attitudes towards minorities.  Many exceptions of course.  Seems to me that the football world has always lagged a few years behind society as a whole when it comes to progressive and tolerant attitudes.

The boy got threatened with a ban for it. 😂

After all the slagging Falkirk fans give Livingston,looks like they are depending on ex or present livi players to save their season.

Jacobs, Kabia on loan and Watson, ATS,Millar and Telfer are ex players.

The Launderers are a vile outfit, of that there is no doubt. Current or existing players are easily fixed with some Dettol and a wire brush.

Who is Millar?

Stereotypical snobbery  !!

Our defending is still absolutely abysmal. Gid to see. The formation today (along with our pathetic use of the ball) is killing us here. Montrose constantly getting the overlap down the flank particularly on the left with McGuffie not getting close to stopping a cross coming in the whole game. Before ATS went off we really should’ve switched to a back 4 and even when he went off could’ve brought McCann on.

Really not many positives so far even our goal was a mix of the wind and their keeper making a c**t of it. Paul Watson made a fantastic last ditch tackle, Jacobs looks good since he came on and Kabia has been our best player again. But if we stick with the 5-3-2 then we’re not getting back into this game.

We must have the worst composure on and off the ball of any team in Scotland, its impressively embarrassing.
