"Unfortunately it is difficult to keep them with the finances at the football club."

This gets on my tits to an irrational extent. What's wrong with just saying "the club"? Does he think we'll get confused with Motherwell Snooker Club?

I was on a 3 day bender then a 4 day fear recovery and I basically decided not to pay attention to anything happening. I take it nothing happened.

That's a bad ratio - it must have been some 3 days :)

When Main was in form and chucking defenders about he was tremendous entertainment. Shouldering Tavernier into another dimension to set up Campbell last season was bloody delightful. 

He does absolutely look like he doesn't give a f**k, though. Fair fucks to him if he gets more money after scoring 3 goals all season.

Big Mitchell there...

 

That goal was the VCR equivalent of Marvin's goal against Rangers - it was rewound so often that it became unwatchable...

That was the one time I was on the pitch at FP at full time - I think it started the whole end of season "tradition" that's now stopped by some b&q chicken wire....

I noticed the wee bit of Twitter #content yesterday about the (now) Cooper stand opening 24 years ago this week. Aside from the fact that it made be feel quite old I'm very on board with the club expanding the scope of the eras it punts on the socials. More of it I say.

I'm sure it was the first time it happened, I certainly don't remember it happening before. I think it was largely borne out of sheer relief more than anything else that day, as it looked for all the world we were doomed to the playoffs when 1-2 down and everything before that goal was going against us and it looked like it just wasn't our day. Memory may be hazy here in my old age but I'm pretty sure we had one cleared off the line just before they went up the park to score their second goal. It was just a ridiculously good strike from Van Der Gaag, he really couldn't have hit that any better if he'd tried and you knew it was in from the second it left his boot.

You want to build something and build something, that is never going to be the case here.

We can’t keep players. Once they play at the level they play at then they have interest in them. We are prepared for every eventuality.

It is a short, short career, they could be finished with one kick, one incident.

Our players seem to attract a lot of attention. I take it as credit that we are doing something very right.

More than a hint of frustration from Robbo here. It must be extremely challenging having to rebuild constantly. Maybe tomorrow's game and the extra 60 grand with finishing seventh is more significant than we think?

Something that I feel goes unnoticed is that Keith Lasley was apparently capable of hitting 60 yard free kicks into the opposition goal mouth and we decided to utilise it exactly once in his career.

On the SPFL video about it, McCall describes it as 'the biggest kick he's ever taken', seems about right.

Overheard someone talking about Gillespie being away in the summer, Anyone seen anything?

Surely you can't keep two first team keepers in Carson and Gillespie?

Carson I'd imagine is still the club's number one so Gillespie will be off?
