Is Lewis Allan any good?

I liked him more than most and the first season (arrived in the Jan I think) he was on loan with us he looked like he had enough about him to go up a level, I was delighted when he signed on with us again. The second season was basically a disaster though and his confidence looked completely shot.

Others will be meaner about him but such is life.

I’m guessing the game v East Kilbride is still on today?

No details announced on either club’s social media but match listed in the fixtures on City’s website page.

5-2 win for City.  Kilby were ahead twice, and City only pulled it back to 2-2 in time added on in the first half.  Got another three after half-time, but until Darren O'Day was red-carded in 20 minutes East Kilbride looked at least as good as City.

City scorers Alex Harris (13, 71), Jonny Court (50, 55) and Scott Shepherd (45).  Don't have the EK scorers sorry.

Enjoyed my first look at the new signings yesterday. Harris clearly belongs at a higher level and you can say the same about Crane.

Also looks like Court will give the us the physical option we sorely lacked last year, he chased and won a few balls in the channel that Henderson just wouldn’t have been able to. Also for a non-goalscoring forward he’s scored a lot of goals in pre-season (I accept its different when the properly competitive stuff starts).

Anyway, clearly the highlight of the day was Darren O’Dea’s red card. Still laughing about it this morning.

Court has dropped a division which may help him, don't expect him to win any high balls. Good luck to him

What did O’Dea do?

Thompson won the ball off him as he was carrying it forward, perfectly fair tackle, as soon as O’Dea hit the deck you could tell his head had gone, charged after Thompson and tried to cut him in half. About as clear a red card as I’ve ever seen.

Delightfully this was in the 20th minute, the same point in the game he got sent off in his last ever (but obviously not actually last ever) appearance, vs St Mirren at the end of last season.

If they’ve brought him in to provide an experienced and calm head then it’s not the best start. But it is, very very funny.

Getting  sent off in a City Cup final getting played 2 years late can't get more heads gone than that.

We have signed graham Taylor, thoughts ?
i didn’t know EC had released him.

Quick, good dribbler, surprisingly strong with a low centre of gravity but always seemed to be taken off after 60/70 mins, picked up lots of silly bookings and to be honest doesn’t have much of a football brain.

Overall I think he’ll do well for you, I think a big part of his drop off in form last season was teams starting to sit deeper against us.

Decent result for City yesterday!   Matched a championship team all the way and looked a good side.

Only concern for me, is Blair Henderson being out as we look a bit light up front without him. can't see any of the other "strikers" scoring much.

Apart from that, City should do well this season.

Really impressed by Ed City yesterday and a great crowd there. They looked well organised and although they didn’t create much they didn’t give much away either. Troubling performance for Crawford and the Pars

Thought the official crowd seemed a bit light. I was there yesterday and at the Spartans v Liverpool game on Monday and there is no way there was 900 less people there.

Ainslie Park is not very good for a game with a big crowd with no enough toilets to start with massive que at half time although you have the joy of pishing on a couple of Clyde stickers when you eventually get in:lol:

Whats wrong with Blair? As you say they looked a bit light without them. Good to see you beating the Townies though:lol:

Glad someone else spotted this, didn’t want to sound like sour grapes, that was my first visit to Ainslie and i had heard it was a good ground for its level, but that’s not how it felt, constant stream of people walking in front of the stand, and if you were in the stand at least 1 corner was unviewable due to a decent number of fans standing right from the edge of the stand down the touchline.

Probably not problems that present for smaller crowds but were an issue yesterday.

The other major problem being our players couldn’t find the stadium and we were forced to play lookalikes who didn’t know how to play football.

Its  probably best at a Spartans game. You get into the cafe/bar upstairs pre match and at half time. Not too busy either and you can walk all the way around the ground and stand on the dug out side.

Normal City games you sometimes get into the bar pre game if they don't have hospitality on.

Glad you mentioned about the folk at the side of the stand I was in there 1st half and there were Pars fans blocking the view of folk at the far end, one specky c**t was that big half of him would have been in downtown Pilton. The stewards had a bit of bother getting them to move ignorant c***s.
