The reaction to the Peterhead game has been a bit over the top. It’s effectively just a pre-season friendly against a side who won’t have many bigger games than that all season.

These games should just be used to find our best XI (of the players available) and our shape. We should be focusing on the league this season and we don’t need this as a distraction later on. We’ll already have the Cup and the Irn-Bru Cup in our way.

That's the Tunnock's Teacake and Caramel Wafer Double-Decker Biscuit Challenge Cup Spectacular, thank you very much.

Yeah the LC means less to me these days than the CC.  And that's saying something given the joke teams that enter the CC.

For me it goes League > SC > CC > LC.

If you had been there for the second half you would have seen that  part time Peterheads performance was far from pre season, we were made to look a shambles by them and that was after we had three pre season games against premier sides, (and various other games), so we should have had a team that had the shape you mentioned on the park which was capable of containing what was an onslaught.

If it hadn't been for Ridgers pulling off miraculous saves we would have lost that game easily by three or four.

We are now in a competitive phase of the season and regardless of the competition or opposition we need a team to show us that they can work and succeed against all levels, winning breeds confidence, otherwise heads go down and we end up with another lost season.

Hopefully we will see a drastic improvement against Raith.

Honestly if we went out of the league cup I would not be disappointed

17 minutes of highlights of a 0-0?!

About 10 minutes of the video covers the 22 penalties.

Our next pre-season game vs Raith is today and Rooney, McKay and McHattie are all out. Welsh, D MacKay and Doran are still out too. Seems like we have no defenders, only Donaldson, McCart and Tremarco really available. Robbo has mentioned the possibility of Harper (who I think is a left-back) and Nicolson (no idea what position) starting.

Daniel MacKay played and scored both goals in a 2-2 draw against Brora last night.  Maybe a candidate for the bench today ? Harper is a left back and Nicolson is a centre back IIRC.

Thought the new top looked horrible today.  The sponsor is absolutely massive.  Looks like something from the Sunday League.

The club has gone 25th anniversary bonkers lately yet brings out a 'commemorative' white top and a home top that's essentially a Caley FC kit.  I'm not an ex-Thistle fan, but if I were I'd imagine this anniversary would've turned quite sour.  Our last few strips were pretty equal, yet this, on an anniversary is about five steps backwards.  All we need is for Megabus to sponsor us and the top would be complete.

I’m guessing these are they guys that are too old/good for the U18s but not ready for the first team. Now that we’ve failed to get a reserve side in the HL, Fort William have effectively become our reserve side.

Interesting that Mackay, Harper, Machado and Macgregor have not been sent out on loan.

Maybe Robbo thinks these lads could push for a place in the first team?
