Because last time we were in the main stand  the 40 or so Brechin fans made more noise than the Raith lot. 


Acht well. Hopefully you enjoyed your day out :)

Unless there’s some sort of exemption rule in place for the play-offs, Kevin Nisbet is out of the second leg against Forfar.

Sixth booking of the season, ban takes 14 days to take effect.

Don't quote me on this, but it's now 10 or 12 bookings I think, so he'll be fine.

@Skyline Drifter can clear things up on that though.

Fingers crossed. I was going by this which seems to suggest he’ll be out:

On today’s game, felt we were pretty comfortable but a dodgy keeper made it a close game. Dave McKay was terrific at times at right back and we genuinely might’ve went down without Nisbet. What a player.

What a tragedy it would be if Sam McGuff or Dean Lyness were to pick up an injury at training on Monday meaning we could sign another goalie...

If you havent been booked 6 times by league match 18 the 6th booking suspension lapses and you have to get 12 for a ban, albeit that ban would be two games.

Terrific. I was motivated to look it up by Nisbet’s reaction more than anything else, as he looked genuinely devastated to be booked and was still wandering about with his head in his hands a minute or two later.

 

Sorry for the panic guys. All hail King Kev.

I wasn’t as happy as I thought i’d be to see Barry Smith at the end. Schadenfreude just doesn’t hold the same joy anymore.

It was good to get the win, but a narrow home win over a doomed looking Brechin, with some more defensive clangers, doesn’t fill me with confidence for the play-offs. Still, fingers crossed.

Still raging at McGlynn for subbing McKay, who was having a decent game. There's no tactical advantage in changing a like for like full back but if he was going to do it Crane should have been off.

Possibly Nisbet thought he was suspended? If he had been it would've been a struggle to even motivate myself to attend the play offs without him. It would be that bad.

Can only think it was to give Murray game time after illness. McKay had a good game. Could we turn him into a right back?

Or just play Watson, who IS a right back

I see Barry “Safe hands” Smith has taken Brechin from eighth to tenth.

An absolute dunderheid of a manager, and I’m delighted we dispensed with him.

If only we’d had someone better last term.

Super Kev. If we can have him finish on 40 for the season we might get away with that goalie/defence in the playoffs.

McKay was much better today than Watson has ever looked, albeit he only played about an hour so you can’t make a full judgement. I thought he was terrific and we were a lot poorer with Murray in his place.

Compare his use of the ball to Davidson/Benedictus and it really is night and day. It’s late in the day but I’d be considering putting Murray back to left back and dropping Crane for the play-offs.

Dominated a lot of it despite never looking comfortable due to some awful work at the back.

Brechin weren't very good and they really mucked up by firing Dodds when 6th, only to appoint Smith. Some folk looking a bit daft now, what a dreadful manager he is.

Oh, Mckay was very, very good at Right Back. Superb going forward.

All three subs have came back from injury/ illness so made sense to give them game time.
Where's Frank?
:blink:
We won so probably won't see him.
