Sons' sorrow


Recommended Posts

I see we are using an amateur ‘keeper tomorrow in the squad. Not just an amateur ‘keeper though, a Sunday league ‘keeper….. 

No disrespect to the lad, but that’s not the level we should be plucking players from. (I’m saying this as a Sunday league player myself).

To be fair assuming Sam only found out today that he was having to isolate, and with the serious amateur season starting on Saturday (or at least Dumbarton Accies is), I suspect we were left with some seriously limited options.

If the rain in G82 is anything like it is in G14 right now mind you there's not a chance this game will go ahead.

Just been short but heavy bursts of rain here. I sincerely hope the game's not in any risk when we've just had 6 weeks of pure sun shine.

It's absolutely mental here. Dumbarton Road went from dry to being a river within about 15 minutes.

It’s a good point. But surely the likes of your younger brother or someone of that ilk on an emergency loan is do-able at short notice.

Again, no disrespect to the lad we’ve got in - but having seen him play as recently as last weekend, I know what we’re getting.

Fair enough - we’re only getting him in to fill a spot on the bench so maybe I’m overreacting a little here.

Wee Jan is on the bench for the Bankies tomorrow unfortunately. Otherwise I would've been straight onto Faz offering his services!

Nah, if it's like last season they just link your email to your season ticket and the game shows for you once logged in. 

Tried it but its asking me for an access code.  Il send them a message to get me linked up.

Are clubs going to be allowed to continue to stream even although fans are being allowed back to grounds?

Yes.

It totally makes sense too, as lower League clubs have plenty of fans spread all over,  unable to get to games.

I think the streaming is a great thing

The most refreshing thing about today is not playing hoofball. Seeing us play the ball on the deck is pleasing, as is our ability to actually score goals. Five goals in two games when it took eight games to achieve that last season is night and day stuff.

I mean, we were way off the pace for most of today and but for the sending off would probably not have scored at all. We certainly need another creative option in the form of a goalscorer. We missed McKee a lot today and were doing lots of the basics poorly.

But I agree, that game last year finishes with us gaining zero points, regardless of a sending off for the opposition.

We're a football team this year, no doubt. It's also telling during goal celebrations that those on the pitch feel like a team too. I get the distinct impression a lot of guys realised the long, hard slog they were in for last year and didn't enjoy their season playing Duffyball. McGeever barely ever aimlessly punts it now, Quitongo or Wardrop never played a long ball all day either - Duffy is a truly awful tactician.

Just to add to this. Last season we didn't have a multiball system with balls on cones etc around the park like most other teams did. Yesterday I think every ballkid had a ball and we were keen to get the game going as quickly as possible.

There's no question that we're still work in progress, but you really cannot fault the style of football Faz is trying to play. Little things like that highlight just how anti-football we were last season. I don't think I fully appreciated just how bad things had got.

What’s the script with streaming Sons games. If you have a season ticket is it part of the deal? If so how do you use it? 


Yes, the streaming is free to season ticket holders.

https://dumbartonfc.univtec.com/

Log in using the e mail address you gave to the club when buying your season ticket.

As a season ticket holder, after logging in on a home match day, you simply click on the game and away you go.

Good luck
