Not like stewards at this level to see people enjoying themselves and immediately try and nip it in the bud

Exactly. It’s not the fans that are the problem here.....

Im assuming that this poor opinion of the stewarding at Station Park is common knowledge? i.e. David Mcgregor et al are aware also of the low opinion thats displayed on these pages? The picture painted on here about the stewarding,(Im a rare visitor as Im way South), appears very bleak. Could the matter be addressed possibly at an A.G.M?

The problem has been addressed and brought too the boards attention several times and also several letters written and meetings been held , but nothing has changed ,

I was one of, if not the first to write to the board and complain about that newly promoted steward a few years ago. Mr Donald was the chairman at the time and I got a constructive reply (though perhaps he was just telling me what he thought I wanted to hear). The matter was raised at a board meeting and discussed then the security officer (the wee self important guy who stands in the tunnel not wearing a hi-vis muttering into his radio the whole time) was consulted. I received a reply from him which was patronising to say the least. I later had a meeting with him but was basically told to p155 off as he knew better and thought he was doing an exemplary job.

If the security officer believes that guy is a suitable head steward after his aggressive, confrontational approach towards me is appropriate then he is no more suited to his position than Robocop steward. God knows I wouldn't want to be a steward but there must be more suitable candidates than those we have and are paying to destroy the atmosphere on our terraces.

Rant over.

Does Gary Irvine still get a game for you? He was playing in a testimonial for us today and obviously is one of our youth coaches. Scott Robertson too, is our U18 manager. How they getting on with you and who would you say is better at CM?

For me Irvine is struggling this year. He started the season in the middle of the park and moved to left back the last three weeks. I'd have him in the dugout next to Weir. Seen very little of Robertson -- he's started one league game. I thought he looked decent.

Irvine is certainly struggling now anyway. Just been charged by the police, along with James McPake, after a disturbance at a pub on Sunday.

Another booking for Irvine, then. He'll be on the bench next to Weir soon enough - once he's been in front of the bench at court. I wonder if the Club will rest him from playing for a while? Might be what's needed for everybody.

What you guys thinking of McLean then?  Signing him in Jan? haha


He’s contributed in 2 goals our only goals in two games..
Link up play doesn’t seem too bad, would be good to see Hilson running off him.
Too early too tell however.

True but ....
Does need to get the doc to check he hasn't got an inner ear infection.
Awfy prone to falling o'er.
