Has McCowan kicked on hugely in the past 6 months ?

The only reason I'm asking is that straight off he's come in this season and stood out as one of our best players which makes me wonder if we should maybe have used him more last season ?

The first time I saw him was a 20 min cameo at Bellsdale and although against lesser opposition he did make such an impact that we were all talking about him after the game.

When you think we brought in Cadden and Miller in January but had McCowan in the background, it just makes you wonder if we should perhaps have introduced him quicker than we actually did ??

We currently have players at Cumnock, Largs, Irvine Vics and Lugar.

Pretty certain Hewitt was/is at Kilwinning Rangers this season too

He is. I had forgotten about Kilwinning.

I'm less bothered about getting our players to junior clubs where most already go and more bothered about our youths playing for real football teams in league one and two. 

There'll be players who would benefit at a particular stage of their career more from a spell in the juniors than stepping up to the seniors. "Real football" 😂😂😂 careful we don't get above our station.

I would say that if we have anyone ready to play regularly,which surely what a loan spell is all about, in League One then he'd no doubt be knocking on the door to be in the match day squad / starting eleven. Craig McGuffie being a prime example.

I still believe a full time team in a small provincial town should have more developed links not only with the town's only junior team, but with clubs at boys club and amateur level as well.

Even if it's sending out some coaches for a few sessions, some hand out of old kit or equipment or getting kids in for soccer schools, half time matches on the pitch or as ball boys.

There's always a bigger picture that I'm not convinced is seen quickly enough, if at all.

Now that we know Partick and ICT are shifting their home league games on November 16th to a Tuesday night due to the lure of the caramel, we should surely now get Friday night TV games announced very soon.

I hope so. I’m trying to plan weekends around games and it’s annoying waiting to see what fixtures may be changed 

still shocked nobody picked up our game v Partick to show to a TV audience who love a storyline attached to football

Me too, what is also annoying is there is no date for when they're announcing the TV games. As fans we're completely in the dark.

I know, it’s pathetic. The Scottish PL (and Dundee derby) ones were announced a few weeks ago but no sign of the bush league BBC Scotland ones

The less Friday Night games, the better, as far as I'm concerned.......

Personally I like the Fri night games, but I understand they’re far from ideal for supporters and away fans who have to travel a distance

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy watching our opponents play on TV on a Friday night, however from a purely selfish perspective I would much rather go to a match on a Saturday afternoon and I also believe it has an adverse effect on our attendances (certainly the away fans) when we play on the Friday night.

The odd midweek / Friday game is fine, I quite like being at Somerset under the floodlights. Last year we were unfortunate that success attracts cameras, so we had more than our fair share. Hopefully this season it will be split a little more evenly.

As far as I can see the last BBC Scotland Friday night game is on the 1st Nov (Morton v Dundee), so surely they will be deciding the next batch to show very soon

An upside from yesterday. Kerr made the right subs. Had it been Sandy he would have introduced Doolan (as the game changer) and we know how that ends. Getting Moorey and McGuffie on was the correct call.

I'm encouraged but we need our injured players back as the squad is wafer thin. If a centre half or central midfielder gets injured we're fooked.

I think it may have to be 442 against Morton if we only have two fit central midfielders. With Moore and Moffat leading the line.

Really late for mcguffie though. I was calling for him for McCowan from about 65, and it came at 85. McCowan had a very quiet second half, and I thought Forrest was offering a wee bit more.

Did we go 4-4-2 when Moore came on?

Agree with the first part.

And yes we did, it clearly didn’t suit us as Kelly was far too deep and Forrest and McCowan dropped out of things more. Kerr didn’t really have any other option though and he won’t on Tuesday either which is worrying.

No, you'll still be able to use your local library or job centre.
