  1. Makes interesting reading. First time I have seen the actual number of season tickets (1453) made public, not a particularly impressive figure but hardly surprising. Statement is well written and contains a number of commitments, some of which we have heard before but hopefully will be followed through this time.
  2. Announcement tomorrow morning apparently - hear it's John Robertson!
  3. Howdenender + 1 please
  4. We will not lose out on TV money as this game is part of the contractual package which all clubs signed up to with Sky and ESPN. Whether the kick off could have been delayed would have depended on ESPN's schedule for the rest of the day as much as anything else. Fact is that another call off due to a waterlogged pitch, especially as late as this one, is embarrassing for the club. One night of rain, however heavy, should not cause problems like this, and we obviously do have a drainage problem which needs to be sorted.
  5. Thought Rooney had a great game tonight - held the ball up, laid it off well and ran himself into the ground. Very unlucky not to score, and would have been my choice for MOTM easily. We actually played some good stuff at times, and on another night could well have won. Can't say I saw much improvement in Aberdeen - they still look a poor side with a defence that is there for the taking.
  6. Injury well healed and I thought Jamie had a great game today. More than you could say for any of our lot.
  7. Yes, "allegedly" a late injury. It wouldn't be the first time he's been dropped for no good reason. I wouldn't be surprised if he vented his spleen on TB when he found out he wasn't in the starting line up. No conspiracy theory this time - I spoke to Russel this morning (in Harry Gows!)and he said he had picked up an injury and wouldn't be playing. Hopefully only a short term thing. We definately missed him today, though Duff did ok in midfield and scored a cracking goal. Frustrating game as we certainly had chances - thought Rooney was very poor today.
  8. No Mantis, he had not been ill, and had spent a normal day a week last Friday, before suffering a sudden and sadly fatal heart attack at home on Friday evening. No suffering, but a terrible shock for the family. Thoughts and sincere condolences to them - hard to believe after all these years that we will never see Gordy at the football again. Another link to the past broken.
  9. This has been a fantastic season, most exciting for years, but I'm glad we're back where we belong!!!
  10. Fantastic result today. County now 16 points behind us with 4 games in hand, so really just us and Dundee now. Looking forward to Dunfermline game already!
  11. Hamilton came on early in the second half and was very impressive - made a big impact with his pace and all round performance. Must say I really enjoyed the game, and even at under 20 level the physical side was tremendous - huge tackles going in and fitness levels amazing. Best entertainment at the stadium for quite a while!
  12. Just in from the game. Fully deserved three points today, tho didnt look like we were going to get them as we created and missed so many chances. Fair play to Rooney for taking the second penalty after missing the first one (to be fair their keeper saved it well). Great performance from Hayes, well deserved MOM. Given ourselves a chance now if we can keep this run going.
