Interview with Sandy Clark as AJ is away at a league meeting. He's saying Beadling is longer term injury. Disappointing.

Aye that's a shitter

I remember first noticing him when he had Scott Wilson on toast then when we played Airdrie away he was up against Greg Ross. I said before the game that he would roast him. Five mins in bam penalty, cardle brought down by Ross. I think that was the game that persuaded McIntrye to get him and McDougall. That next season with him and Gibson and Bell I thought we were unstoppable. Only losing one game at home all season which we flung away really. I was probably the most exciting team since the bert era and Joe was the star man. I wish he was kept on but times change. He's a pars legend no doubt about it. All the best joe

I'm sure there were a couple of games where he ripped the arse out of us, one of them was a Scottish Cup game where we subbed Ross off because he was ripping the absolute shite out of us. 

After one of the games McIntyre made a joke about being glad to have Joe next season, which the Airdrie manager wasn't expecting. 

Can't forget Davie Graham aswell for that season!

Will never forget Morton in the sun at the end of that season. Only way it could've been better was if the Catman of Greenock presented the trophy. 

What a fucking glorious occasion.

Good news is Beadling will have achieved Xavi-esque status with his extended spell on the sidelines, especially if we're struggling.

I still have a pretty vivid memory of his hat-trick at Firhill. 3 absolutely glorious goals in what felt like about 5 minutes. I remember taking about 40 minutes to type a “Joe, Joe, super Joe..” text on my wee Sony Ericsson to my brother when he asked how the game went.

The match summaries were on a repeat on Sportsound in the car on the way home and every time the report of the Dunfermline game came back around I got a wee stiffy when the pundit was talking about how fucking quality Cardle was.

I think he scored one less goal for the club than Ross Jack did

How long is he out for? He looked a stand out last season.

Pretty sure Greg Shields still wakes up in cold sweats dreaming about trying to stop him cutting inside in that second half.

Cardle goal tally doesn't count as at least 75% of them were exactly the same just repeated against different horrified right backs who have to explain why he wasn't shown the outside.

Clark was talking about Faissal and he’s just out with a calf strain so longer term than that. Last season he had a thigh issue and when he signed on for us it was supposedly cleared up. Hopefully he’s back in the first quarter. Bit of a pisser if not, arguably our best midfielder.

Joe Cardle was a perfect example of training to be absolutely brilliant at one thing, he sold a cut inside better than anyone I've seen, despite the entire stadium knowing what was about to happen, for some reason, the defenders didn't.

I love the Hearts goal especially is it's a cut inside but reversed and curled into the top bin.

As far as I was aware, he was a doubt for the first game of the season, but could be back shortly after. Wouldn't rush him in regardless as we have plenty of cover. In saying that though, he is a top quality player and I'm still stunned/chugging at the fact we managed to sign him.

I think the best I ever saw Cardle play was the opening game of the season at Falkirk in the 10/11 campaign. He ran riot in the first half and ruined the full back's career.

Around 2:22 into the video... Cardle’s pass up the wing is delicious. Stabs it up the line but with spin on it so it bends into the path of the Moroccan Prince, leaving the wee guy with the simple task of dumping three County defenders on their arses before smashing the ball beyond the keeper:

We should have kept Joe one more year. If we win the league obviously that'll be wrong but our club is about more than winning. It's about identity and Joe has been a huge part of this in recent times.
