Assuming he plays tonight, Saturday will be Stuart Carswell's 100th DFC appearance. Who was the last player to reach that milestone? Garry Fleming and Andy Graham were the first names that popped into my head - which potentially makes Carsy the first Aitken signing to hit 100.

Andy Graham hit that milestone in a 3-1 win at Cowdenbeath in December 2014. Garry Fleming's 100th appearance was a 3-1 defeat at home to Rangers in April 2015. We won't have to wait over four years for the next one as Kyle Hutton is only four appearances behind Carsy.

Was that the game where Fleming scored an absolute thunderb*****d of a free kick?

Over 1 year on, still waiting.

Chancers

They never, ever had any intention of bringing themselves onshore. It was all just things they said to get the fans to back their proposal. They think since we've been told they're coming onshore that we'll just forget about it. That's how fucking naive these c***s are.

It's also an indication of how naïve some of our fans are that their fantastic plans went unchallenged  for so long.  However, it's pleasing to see that the local press is finally no longer just recycling Brabco's  press releases, and we look forward to some background on the business of one of their consortium recently going under whilst allegedly owing a seven-figure sum to HMRC. 

No-one should be under any illusion; what was once probably a genuine attempt at a win/win situation for both parties has long since failed, and as far as Brabco are now concerned a dead DFC is probably more valuable than a living one - if we lose sight of that we may lose our club.

We still are mate. Just taking a short sabbatical to give some others a turn.

To be clear and factual. There has *never* been a point at which the plans were not being engaged with, scrutinised and challenged by fans - the trust spent five years doing that (including five public events, dozens of updates on our site, regular comment in the press, direct discussion with the owners, contact with local politicians and the Council, and more). Also, the Dumbarton Reporter, in particular, was extremely diligent in its reporting, much to the annoyance of some. All this is a matter of record.

Right now, the trust -- in collaboration with the club board and the C-share company -- are seeking a 'summit' with Brabco to see where we go from here. They have a controlling shareholding and want a return on their investment. We want a sustainable football club run by the people who care most for it. As I reported at the fans' forum, the search for a resolution is an urgent and active priority, alongside the operational issues. I'll say more through the trust website shortly.

Quite a few people have asked about the colt teams issue, given the game tonight. I've put up a statement on the trust site here: https://sonstrust.wordpress.com/2019/08/13/colt-teams-controversy/

I hope that makes our position clear, while also urging full backing for DFC at this time.

Actually, I think there was an intention (at least on the part of one of the parties involved). But their circumstances have changed quite a bit. We never gave unconditional backing to the development plan, but took it stage by stage. That was always the right approach. The question all along was one of viability, whether the financing would work, whether we'd get a sustainable stadium, etc. 

However, we *also* warned those who thought that the Young's Farm plan going down would remove the threat to the club that this was *far* from the case, because without further investment maintaining ourselves where we are was always going to be a huge struggle. Some refused to believe that, but it has proved to be the case -- with relegation, loan costs, a dramatic drop in season tickets and unavoidable capital expenditure proving a huge challenge. We are hanging in there. We need either a fresh deal with our owners or new owners to be able to move forward from here. Let me assure you that all options are being looked at.

We're all here blaming Brabco and it turns out our Spanish friend McGarci is the bad luck charm that has led to our downfall.

Will Kyle Hutton reaching 100 appearances trigger the four horsemen of the apocalypse?

I think they may already have arrived and are currently playing in defence!
