Kerr Waddell to Montrose x

Find this very strange, for him to drop 2 leagues and play for the enemy is bizarre.

Obviously do not know the full facts but he is local and a Red Lichtie supporter and played in the SPL and Championship so has the pedigree and in no way am i saying he is better than T.O.B. or Ricky but imo he would have been a superb signing for the club as Ricky could play in various positions and Waddell would be a massive threat in the air at set pieces, i thought we could have signed him and put a clause in his contract that we would let him go if a full-time club if somebody came in for him plus we would have got cash for him, i think the club has missed a trick here unless there is a good reason for not signing for us.

I am not going to question DC as in general his signings and decisions are normally very good but as a supporter i find this strange why we never signed him and even more strange who he has signed for.

C'Mon the Red Lichties.

Think he's shown some real class at times, McCord'esque, needs to get up to speed to see what like

Flattered us if I’m honest. Great that we took our chances tho. Gold superb and the new boy Murphy impressed

Very very good tonight, exactly what we needed. Thought Murphy was very impressive and delighted for Spence to grab a couple after all the stick he has had.

We have now won more cup games as a Championship team than Brechin managed with there 1 win in the Scottish cup during their brief stay in the championship.

Two great results to really kick start our season and any sort of result at Easter Road would make this a Majic start to your season!

What a pointless fact

Agreed the score flattered us, our fitness levels proved superior to them in the last 20 mins or so. 

Mikey much better in the second half in the middle, gave away a lot the first half, Murphy impressed - could definitely push gav out next season, goldie had a superb game, stevie looked solid up top creating a lot, Wilson had a good game, Spence despite his two goals (which IMO were extremely flattering in reflection to his game) looked poor again and is definitely not a lone striker, want him to do well it’s just not coming for me at the min.

Agree with every single point made here :)

We also really need to bear in mind that so far we've played friendlies and two League Two teams. While there are many positives so far and few negatives, we need to remember the significant jump in playing level this year, these friendlies and League Cup games so far don't offer any insight into how we will do in competitive games at Championship level week in week out. One of the biggest pluses tonight was the fitness levels as mentioned above, the majority of the squad look close to full match fitness already and looking sharp already which is ultimately what pre season is all about.

It's also great that we already know the Alloa game will be of significance, and we've given ourselves a great chance of getting through with 9 points and +3GD the ballpark for getting through in second place.

Your highlights will just be goals... and the Stirling miss of the season.

Please, please include the 5 seconds of Bobby Linn 'shooting', Cammy Binnie trying to punch it clear and then Stevie Doris stunning overhead kick attempt :D If time constraints are an issue just cut out a couple of our goals, to see that again would be worth it IMO.

Murphy was on trial with us along with Fraser Fyvie and apparently done a relatively decent job on trial but our first choice was always Jamie Ness.
