  1. Result!
  2. Would love to see it - I hate seeing our town centre represented by Ugly Sister shops when there is a fully professional local team! However, I would imagine, like others, that the revenue would not cover the additional costs, so we're stuck with the shipping container and playing second fiddle to Glasgow-centric outlets on our turf. Grim!
  3. Vigurs was our best player last night. Hopefully Robbo will continue to coax the best out of him!
  4. couple of late scares. Looks like pens
  5. another disallowed goal. Not our day
  6. Disallowed. More chances. Getting tense now! Warren subbed - injured.
  7. Pretty poor fare at Forthbank. A few reasonable chances, but all thrashed over the bar + one in the side-netting. A couple of scares at the back. Warren not having a great game. Vigurs and Draper looking our sharpest.
  8. Vigurs is every manager's nightmare: Packed with ability (vision, passing, sweet left foot), but infuriatingly lacking in consistent application and difficult to find his perfect position. Added to that a poor disciplinary record and you give managers a real headache. Last season, Vigurs was really poor for most of the season despite the faith shown in him throughout. Playing him wide left and in a slow midfield trio was partly to blame, but so was his lack of effort, particularly in tracking back. Too late, Foran finally found an effective position on his own immediately in front of the back 4 with a duty of taking the ball off defenders and using it well. From being a central figure in our demise, he very nearly became our saviour, with some excellent performances after the split. So, played in a very distinct role that doesn't require too much effort, he can be a match winner on his day, but when he's not at it or played in more dynamic position he has the potential to be a passenger. Enigma indeed.
  9. Thanks, Caley Mad in Berks. Of course, that is a much more sensible approach to the problem than simply sitting on your hands and moaning (note to self....). I look forward to hearing the response, but given the lack of communication skills displayed to date, you might be waiting a while!
  10. Are the board deliberately trying to find out the size of the hard-core support isby repeatedly challenging the loyalty of the season ticket holders? I would dearly love to get behind a refreshed team and manager next season, but frankly feel entirtely undervalued and taken for granted by the Club at this moment in time. The series of poor decisions and continuing silence from the Club does not inspire confidence or enthusiasm for the season to come. Get a grip!
  11. Sorry guys, but the idea of paying the same amount next year for a poorer product is crazy from the Board. Just a gesture to reward the ST holders for their loyalty through a horror show of a season would have been enough to convince me to buy. I understand that they need the cash, but I fear that their income will be more seriously hit by this decision than it would have been if they'd reduced the price by, say, £30. As it happens, I'll only be able to make a small percentage of the games this season, but I might have been minded to make a donation to the club by way of a season ticket purchase, had they been sensible about pricing. I think I'll sponsor a player or something about being taken for granted.
  12. Yes, I wish Fisher well (excuse the pun!) Seriously, though, he was treated shockingly by Foran and yet gave everything he could when called upon. Respect!
  13. I really hope we're not too late with all this....think we are. None of the players out of contract can afford to hang around to see what happens - they are redundant as of tomorrow. Without a new boss in place, who can make a footballing decision about who should be offered deals? Worse still, there's bound to be a bad smell about the place (rotten apples), so who would want to stay? Meekings is a top player and his loss this year was a key part of our demise - Warren suffered without his pace alongside. The only hope of him staying is to complete his recovery and get himself back in the shop window. If that's an option, I'd grab it!
  14. I have no doubt he Club would welcome with open arms £250000 from a gesture such as this - it would help to fill the hole in the bottom line quite nicely, but not one penny would reach the squad or the facilities. Your money would be much better spent sponsoring a player or sticking it in the youth collections - at least there's a genuine chance of it going to the intended target. can't agree more about the match day experience or lack of it. The ground is a shocking design for both atmosphere and view, but there's not much we can do about that. However, could we make small in kind donations to help paper over the cracks. For example, I'd happily donate a bog seat to help sort that particular problem!! Could a building firm be convinced to build a merchandise and ticket office instead of a shipping crate FFS? Even a shed for a few grand would be a step up. Safe standing in the west stand has to be worth a try - we never use that space anyway. Admittedly, not massive impacts, but every little counts in Tesco-town idoes it not?
  15. Despite my desperation for this outcome, it isn't possible to celebrate it now that it has become a reality. On a human level, a guy who loved the club with every fibre of his being has lost his job and deserves our sympathy. If only he'd been offered/accepted help from an experienced head several months ago, the outcome woild have been different, I am sure. If he walked for the good of the club, then respect to him... I wish him well wherever he goes. From the football perspective, this was the right outcome, if a few months too late. Let's hope the damage is not totally irreversible. Now we need to act fast to get the right person in to settle the squad and give us a pop at promotion. I have no idea who that might be, but experience must be top of the shopping list. Fingers crossed that the Board get this appointment right.
