We couldn’t have picked better scores from the games this Saturday and tonight apart from Montrose not scoring a 2nd on Saturday but that would be nitpicking, we could/should have scored a 2nd as well!!!

We just need to win this Saturday and it will have been a great week, but that is obviously easier to type than to expect in reality, we can win, there is no reason why we shouldn’t but Airdrieonians will be saying the exact same thing, I’m not expecting a classic but if we can get the three points then I won’t care!!!

Can a ritual burning of the Black Strips be organised before the weekend, I’m sure it would be well attended, hey the Club could even open the bar and make some money out if it!!!

Parking the bus has never been Darren's style, even against Dundee United, Hearts and the Ibrox mob this season.

I beg to differ.

How? Name one game where we’ve parked the bus. We may have been outplayed & hemmed back in games but never set out to sit in!

I never said he parked the bus but there has been occasions where a more cautious approach has been adopted. Is it a coincidence who the 2 fans questioning my opinion are? 
For what it’s worth, I questioned a Rovers fan on their Falkirk game thread after he said that them and Falkirk are the best footballing sides in the league by a mile! That reeks of typical Lino arrogance, considering , at this stage of the season, they are only 5 points ahead of 4th place. 
I genuinely feel we have the squad that can really go for it and challenge for the title rather than hoping we get a play off spot.

Good odds for coming 5th.

Can't see us, Falkirk and Airdrie all dropping the required points for East Fife to win the league, as well as East Fife going on the consistent winning run required to capitlise on that, to be honest.  Might well finish above 4th though.

Not really arrogance, I was taking the 90 minutes in context. I thought Falkirk looked far better last night than East Fife or Airdrie did in our recent encounters.

Raith & Falkirk, stronger, yes. Less mistakes in them, yes.

I wouldn't say last night Falkirk played much football though.

First half of the season we generally tried to play football, we then went off the boil a bit & since then we've had to grind out results. As I said on Saturday, result more important than the performance at the moment.

We wont win the league, but if someone had said that we would be 5 points off the top with 9 games to go, we would have taken that.

Our next 3 games are against Airdrie, Montrose and Raith so will go a long way to define our season. 3rd or 4th would be a decent season for us.

Good results for us last night but as has been said, if we're in a position in 2 weeks going into the Raith game with 0 from our previous 6 then we're back into a fifth place slide. Really need to be beating at least one of Airdie/Montrose and probably drawing the other to stand us in good stead.

Whatever happens, second last game of the season at home to Falkirk for you lot is a massive massive game.

Bit of luck, we'll be resting players for the play offs by then!

if we’re out of the title race by then and Falkirk need to beat us to beat Raith to the title we might indeed rest a few players, to keep them fresh for the playoffs you understand !!!😉

Anyone thinking of 2nd is utterly mental, that would be a huge ask. The difference between 4th and 5th is the key, not on that table but the additional likely 1500-2000 folk at the playoff semi final at £15 a pop (assuming you keep your own receipts and it's not chopped over the two legs). Playoff's the priority.

That’s fair enough.
