The Brechin City 2019/20 Thread

You lost to an Alloa side that we somehow fluked our way past in the final.  The same Alloa side got promoted the next season and are still there, doing well for themselves in the Championship. 

 

We turned in two of our worst performances of that season in the away legs of the play-offs. We were particularly abysmal at Airdrie and lucky enough to still be in it for the second game. Jim Goodwin made a real mess of those play-offs, but he learned from it.

As for Wilson, there are some decent lower league players in that Brechin squad and I would have thought it shouldn't be too hard in the short term to at least make them competitive in League 2.

Just been reading that a bounce game on Saturday finished Brechin City 1 Peterhead 1. Good luck to your new manager.

I am told by an insider that the attitude of the senior pros is extremely poor. New boss will have a tough job on his hands.

It doesn't take an insider to work that one out. 

Bloody disgrace the lot of them .

I’m led to believe that McManus made a big play to get the managers job and is unhappy he didn’t. He maybe the problem in the dressing room now. Not an easy issue to manage for Wilson to be fair to him.

Not sure how you can count this against him - was he not managing those two players in particular?  You can't blame him for the team conceding 66 goals and not credit him for the goals the team scored?

You lost to an Alloa side that we somehow fluked our way past in the final.  The same Alloa side got promoted the next season and are still there, doing well for themselves in the Championship. 

His playing career would suggest he probably is bigger and better than Airdrie.  By the sounds of thing Aidrie fans are pretty hard to please - I wouldn't consider 3rd in the league and losing in the playoffs isn't a bad season for Airdrie.

Mark Wilson was the man responsible for setting up the team, getting them organised and most importantly making them difficult to beat. He manifestly didn't do that seeing as we conceded 66 goals and got beat by just about every team in the league. You could say he got the best out of Andy Ryan and Iain Russell but since our midfield was so piss poor at providing any meaningful service to them both, it's hard to say that he did. He inherited them both when he got the job and he's lucky he did so. 

Yes we did lose to Alloa - a side that were better than us and still are. That's why nobody was confident Wilson and his team of reprobates would win over the two legs. And so it panned out. 

Mark Wilson was a decent player but he's a mere footnote in Scottish football who was confined to bumping his gums on the radio because there was no better use of him. He is clearly not bigger and better than Airdrie, hence why he's now managing at the arse end of League 2, a level that in the long history of professional Scottish football Airdrie have never played at. 

Good luck - you'll need it.

Going with our recent state of affairs, what do we think our best line up is with such a small squad going into next week and some big games ahead to get out of our position

Impossible to get out your position with that squad. It's dire in every department only Shagger looks half decent and he is an auld man.

Hopefully Kelty go easy on you or you will never play senior football again guys.

Attention seeking thick c**t found. Mate if you want to troll, at least try and get your facts about Scottish football right. The sooner clubs like Stenny drop out of the SPFL the better, their fans really are thick as mince.

So if City get relegated they're joining the juniors?

I watched the highlights and it appears we were unfortunate to not come away with a point. Stone waller penalty at the end as well , but we never get penalties so no surprise when the ref actually gave a free kick to Stenny. 

Good to see Buzz hasn't lost his calm persona as well. :lol:

Any news on these loan players that were mentioned in the interview last week ? Seen Mcmenimin was looking to get playing again he used to score a few wouldn't mind giving him a chance

Hilarious. The Brechin highlights clearly showed Jonathan page pulling McGuigan’s shirt in the box. Not even a brief flirtation with his shirt, but a proper yank, followed by another. As blatant, and as indisputable as you can get. The fantasy Brechin penalty incident was just that.

Decent player from what I’ve seen but a big ask for a young kid to get Brechin out the mire.
