    Bit worrying, isn't it? Quite a few players knocking on the 1st team door, yet beaten by a team three tiers below. Or am I being too harsh?

    Need to put things in context..half our team were youths, who recently haven't had much game time, four of our team played championship football on the Saturday whilst Brora had the week off to prepare for their big day. It was good to see the youth up against top level HL players - Harper and Hyde in particular looked at home, whilst McGregor wasn't effective on the right in the first half he had more influence coming central in the 2nd. Machado flattered to deceive, but the pitch did look pretty soft and the ball held up on it. Although the opener for Brora was a good strike the player had time & space to run in and get a shot away, whereas the second two were scrambled/rebound efforts where dodgy handling from the keeper led to loose ball being picked up in our own box by Brita and slotted in through the crowded defence. All in a decent level of player but unfamiliarity hampered them against a good Brora side , who had plenty of strength & experience ( even if they did complain an awful lot about our physicality). I wouldn't worry too much about the result, it was Broras day and well done to them - they probably wanted it a bit more.

    No I don't think you are. One shouldn't underestimate Brora through. They are a top Highland League side and I am sure they could comfortably hold their own in division 2. I am sure the Brora lads were 100% up for it, however, there were several of our first team squad in there who should have been motivated both to win a trophy and to stake a claim for a first team spot. After all, with the way the first team are playing, squad players might not get too many opportunities to impress.

    I've collated some of my finest Tansey moments in this Twitter thread. Enjoy!

    Wow. what was Rooney doing there when we were defending?? Glad he was. I’m sure Coll will claim he meant the long ball, but it could equally have ended in row z!! Who cares! Rooney’s day and we are only two points off the top!!

    I think some of the excuses were valid but so are some of the criticisms Firstly a defence that conceded 3 has hardly had a game together before. Mackays first game back since beginning of season. First half experiment of having Carson as 10 really didn’t work. Our two central midfielders weren’t able to get their foot on the ball and control things. The result was long balls to Todorov and into ‘space’ which again really didn’t work. Trafford was certainly Fired Up in the second half but could easily have been sent off. We looked far more threatening in the second half but when you consider MacGregor and Trafford had played 60 mins the day before and had the travel back from Ayr they certainly gave 100%. Todorov and macGregor linked up better in the second half but there was a lot of punishment being dealt out and the ref lost control in the second half. Roddy is very lucky he’s still walking after one of the tackles from behind a lot of others looked rusty and it’s hardly surprising they just aren’t getting games. It looked like a team just thrown together against a team that plays every week. It would be interesting to see what we could have done if we’d had a few more of the Fort William 9. Certainly a Jack Brown in the middle and a Ross Gunn out wide and a Donald Morsion at right back Cammy’s free kick was outstanding. Anyway, onwards and upwards

    I do hope this has been reported to Ayr FC and all other agencies. No use showing Red Cards against racism when such despicable behaviour still exists. Ayr “fans” should be thoroughly ashamed of some of their number. They know who they are so, name and shame.

    • Dundee United v Inverness CT - Report
      John Robertson was without the injured Sean Welsh who has been out of the side most of his time here. Some say he is made of wafers, but he will be a big miss for us tonight. Former United player Lewis Toshney was on the bench with Brad Mckay coming into the back four. First time back at Tannadice since the departure of Coll Donaldson; who will they vent their anger towards instead?

      Anyone see a dive here. 

      I find it difficult to understand that the only people to see a dive were the referee and the three people who presided....

    • Inverness CT - Rangers u21 - C/Cup -Preview
      Hold your horses, we play Rangers Colts in the Chocolate Biscuit Cup semi-final this Sunday at the Caledonian Stadium, Inverness. I bet you all forgot about this competition. Kick off for this one is 16:10 with the P&J Lounge within the stadium being open for a day of televised football, the drinks starting to flow at 12 midday. Ross County are the current holders of the Challenge Cup having beaten Connagh's Quay 3-1 in the final last season.
