I think we all know what needs to be done here...

Lump money on cove at the bookies! Would be the ultimate jinx.

Mitch hobbled off after 15 minutes yesterday and if he misses out completely on Saturday the chances of us dropping points or losing must rise.

Although we've weathered our tough run of fixtures, so far, we're not exactly turning in great performances and can count ourselves fortunate in the last two. I think we've conceded in 9 out of our last 11 games, and in each of our last 7, since losing at Easter Road. 

We need to find a winning performance this weekend coming although matching Air-dries result will leave us in a strong position in the final 3 games.

Montrose away will be a very stern test especially after their dominate display against the Bairns. 

My nerves probably can't handle late drama 3 weekends on the spin. Saturday will be tense again

You should get points deducted if you can't put 3/4 past them...Falkirk are by far the worst team I've seen this season.

What did the Airdrie supporters do ?

Thought they were hard c***s, when, as part of a group they targetted individual Cove fans minding their own business.

 

I've no issue with folks going fighting at fitba so long as it's with like minded individuals and doesn't impact upon innocent supporters or members of the public who just want to do their thing. Petty wee thugs who've watched too many Danny Dyer documentaries and act the big c***s because of volume of numbers are just vermin and there is no place for them in society.

Senior division heading to Montrose in tentative optimism that we win at a tough venue and Falkirk wake up after such a long slumber in 5th place. Matron calling?

If you can't go along without a bit of hope, then what can you do!

I actually think we might beat you boys this Saturday which is a shame as I'd rather have Cove in the play offs for the shorter Journey.

This is the fixture that I’ve been nervous about in our run in. But I was also nervous about East Fife at the weekend too as a potential banana skin, but we came away with the 3pts. Hopefully the same again!

Prior to Saturday we were poor for a good few weeks, I hope that's the bad spell over and we can go into the play offs with a bit of momentum behind us.Cove or Airdrie are worthy winners of this league....it will go down to the wire a reckon.

As long as there’s no diving in the box 😉, I reckon we can win this if we give a good account of ourselves.  And if Falkirk wake up and actually put in half a shift you may get that shorter trip you asked for next month…. It’s crunch time

Even with the poor form, I still always have the fear playing Montrose as they’re the one team we’ve really struggled to get the better of over the last four seasons. Even the recent 4-1 game was fairly even and the scoreline flattered us a bit, although we were well worth the win for four quality goals that day. Falkirk is probably the ideal game to have when you’ve been on a bad run, I felt more confident going there a few weeks ago than I did East Fife on Saturday, but I’m hoping that win was more down to Falkirk than Montrose turning it around.

A win for us on Saturday would be a big boost ahead of a potential play-off. All we can do is keep winning and hope Cove drop points along the way but beating Montrose again would be a great psychological boost ahead of any play-off games. If McCabe’s back in the team then I’m pretty confident we won’t lose but it’s whether we show enough quality going forward to break down a good Montrose team.

I think it was Robert Louis Stevenson who wrote something about traveling in hope is better than arriving? Let's pray he was wrong about the ending

It will be tough but we are due a win at Links Park. Three tickets bought today but is there still the segregated gate entrance , caused by a few of our charmers a few years ago?

Noticed the SPFL released the premier league playoff dates today. does anyone know if ours are out ?
 

Guessing the semi final would be a Wednesday Saturday job.
 

The final (If we get there) was Tuesday Friday I think. Although some finals in the past have been Sundays I’m sure.

Hamilton in 2014 showing how you overturn massive goal difference on the final day in a title race against a Paul Hartley side. Dundee ended up getting the result they needed in the end, but I wouldn’t mind Hartley branding Peterhead amateurs on the 30th of April the same way he did Morton back then.

A topic as seen on a QP thread and it’s coming to that time…

Keep- Fordyce, McCabe, frizzell, smith, Easton, Kerr, G.McGill, 

Unsure- Gallagher, McDonald, walker, Watson, Agnew 

Bin- Ritchie, Currie, Cantley, Allan 

 

might’ve missed a few and obviously not included loanees..

I’ve put Salim in with the keep lot purely because he is actually contracted for another season and I’m hopeful he can be like a new signing next season. Currie I’d keep but would like to see another keeper come in that could provide competition for the starting spot.

For the “unsure” lot there’s a few we simply haven’t seen enough of. Lyons has been injured but what I saw of him I thought he looked decent enough. Would be happy to see him get another chance. Cantley hasn’t had much time at all so it’s down the coaching staff to decide if he’s good enough as a backup based on what they see in training, but as I’ve said I’d like to see a more experienced keeper come in to challenge Currie which doesn’t bode well for Cantley. McDonald’s always looked good when he’s played imo, he’s just been behind superior players. If he wanted to leave for more game time you couldn’t blame him but I think there’s a decent player there. Not convinced Agnew can go another season even though he’s played some good stuff this season. Might be best for the team going forward if he was just the assistant manager, but I’d gladly be proven wrong if he kept playing.

Not much to say about the ones I’d bin. None of them have played much and when they have I don’t think they’ve shown the required ability.

Pretty pointless exercise until we know which league we're in.
