Defence failed to clear their lines for leading to a corner, after Dumbarton scored that corner, the players heads dropped and it was game over.

Must win at home next week or the feel good factor will be gone.

What feel good factor ?

You know...the one from last week?

Vital spell coming up towards Xmas for us, we simply cannot be cast adrift or it could be curtains.

Keep in contact then a few signings and comings and goings then see where we are.

I agree. Raith is a free hit, the Peterhead game though, a must win! Be interesting what signings Malks will make in January. Can't see him extending our loanees, they've all been pretty useless.

I was on that coach. Some of the lads sneaked on some alcohol, (despite most of them probably under 18) and when told to hand over the rest they said they didn't have any. Only for the driver to find more alcohol in a bag that was left on the bus during the match.

They also said that the other fans on the bus weren't fans because they don't sing songs, and just moan.

David McGregor gave them a telling off when we all arrived at the stadium.

Me, personally, like the young lads they do create an atmosphere at games but they were idiots yesterday and took it too far.

That’s a few times they’ve been detrimental to the club.

They need to learn the difference between creating an atmosphere and causing trouble.

If that bus had been pulled over by the police it would have been a serious issue for the club.

I think the feel good factor has evaporated already judging by the FB post

Anyway back to Tuesday, i expect  a few changes to try and get something out of the game.

It wouldn't be a club issue, it would be the driver and bus company who are punished.

The chances of a bus full of Forfar fans being stopped is slim to none tbh. It's normally a planned thing involving Old Firm supporters buses and the police will search them as they all pass a certain spot. FWIW I don't think the police would do a great deal other than confiscate the bevy or demand it's stored in the hold.

The club puts on a free bus and certain disrespectful wee gits can't behave then try and blame the club and the bus organisers. Let them bin their season tickets, the club has their money now.

They need to remember that it's not just the players that represent the club, it's everyone who dons the colours. If they can't behave legally and respectfully then the club doesn't need them. 

Back in the 80s and early 90s I was part of the "choir" behind the goal, we are largely still there, why? Simply because we created an atmosphere and generally behaved, youthful exuberance is normal but loutish behaviour isn't. There was a lot more of us back then too. Also, we didn't just sing The Bridie Dance, we danced it too!

I remember when the club ran buses during the 90s, the highland trips were the best, and as an under age individual, I found that if you didnt make a tit of yourself, and didnt mind paying full price for the bus and admission to the ground, no one really cared if we had a pint.
