Lovely to see a St Mirrdden fan having a full-on twitter meltdown about us again.
Edit to add: I love how it autocorrects to St Mirren. Time well spent by the man child there.
He's even claiming he still has a ticket which we charged 30 quid for. They are the biggest wet wipe of a support in Scottish football, especially when it comes to ticket prices.

By the year 2030 Dumbarton Football Club will be responsible for all poverty in Paisley the way this ticket price is growing year on year.

What a bunch of fucking weirdos they are.

The thing I love most about his rant is the "FOR A SINGLE STAND" bit. If only we had a 4 sided stadium we could offer higher ticket prices and justify it by being a fucking moron.

Maybe he paid to watch the first half from the Rock and then paid full price to watch the second half from inside our glorious stadium. Idiot!

Charging £30 for away fans. Ball boys interfering with play.

There’s no depths we won’t sink to.

I asked for something like that some months ago, I think is a great idea, develop young local players, build a sense of comunity in your city and save some money, I think there are some local guys who can stay as "team players" in league 2, like crawford

as I said, in spain every local amateur team has is youth system in the town/village, my local team has 7 youth teams, and the village is 2800 inhabitants, moreover the first team in the regional league

The Falkirk game on 16th November is all ticket. No mention of whether the Falkirk stand is being brought out of storage! https://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=4190

Too little notice I'm afraid; it's a huge erection.

Quite like the idea of this and, seen as it's my afternoon off, I've given it some right good thought.

If all these players were at the best of their form with us then this squad would challenge at the right end of the Championship imo. I've included DT as a winger because, to be totally honest, we really haven't had that many who have been standout since the 2010-11 season.

Goalkeepers

Alan Martin
Danny Rogers

Defenders

Paul McGinn
Sam Wardrop
Andy Graham
Stuart Findlay
Craig Barr
Daniel Harvie

Midfielders

Chris Turner
Scott Agnew
Ross Forbes
Jordan Kirkpatrick
Jamie Lindsay
Mark Gilhaney
Dom Thomas

Forwards

Bryan Prunty
Garry Fleming
Jim Lister
Chris Kane

How would I line up that team?

Alan Martin

Paul McGinn Craig Barr Stuart Findlay Daniel Harvie

Ross Forbes Chris Turner Scott Agnew Dom Thomas

Jim Lister Chris Kane

Go on then. Pick a team to beat that lot...

Danny Rogers over Martin for me on the basis that Alan Martin is a big manchild.  Aside from that it's hard to argue with much of the rest, but you've missed Andy Stirling from your squad and I don't think I'll ever forgive you for it. Stirling in for Forbes for me, if it was a team of the last 20 years then '08 Forbes would make the cut.

Rogers

McGinn -- Graham -- Findlay -- Harvie

Thomas -- Turner -- Agnew -- Stirling

Lister -- Kane

I was tempted to start Fleming in place of Lister because he was a far better servant to us, but the year Jimmy played was just amazing to watch.

EDIT - I may take pelters for this too, but for me Reghan Tumilty is better than Wardrop...

Yeah I can understand all those points. The goalkeeper situation was a real toss up, but Aldo gets in for single-handedly stopping us being relegated that season. 

I did think about Andy Stirling, and I like him a lot, but I need an end product from my wide players - and Forbes is that man. Especially whipping in balls to Jim Lister's big forehead. Stirling would absolutely enhance the overall looks and hair of the squad though.

Fleming was absolutely a better longer term player for us, but prime Lister alongside prime Kane would just be perfect. Lister winning everything in the air and smashing folk around, Kane buzzing about scoring every time he touched the ball in the box 😍

I really only went with Wardrop because he performed for us in the league above and, imo, if he wasn't made out of polystyrene would be a regular for a Championship team. Wouldn't be against including Cammy Ballantyne either, but they are all irrelevant behind the Clydebank Cafu.

We have really struggled at left-back over the last decade 🤣

This is Andy Stirling's end product:

Agree on left back, it seems to be a position that we've just filled with whoever's going at the time. We've never replaced Craig Brittain.

Andy Graham ahead of Craig Barr for me.

Aye, I put Graham in without actually realising Jan had put Barr in there. Mango was great but Graham was the perfect captain for us so sneaks in ahead of Mango.
