  1. Suggested something like this a few years back but there didn't seem to be much interest. The basis being that some people can't always get to the home games but perhaps would like to contribute to the club's funds anyway, and if there was a facility to allow this I think there could be a reasonable number of takers. I'd be up for it anyway!
  2. A winning team would be an attraction! Or a team that wins now and again!

    Next Season

    Richie Hart struck terror into Row Z whenever he lined up to take a shot. Brilliant midfielder though!
  5. Jordan White, He used to be sh!te, But now he's alright! First game I been to for a while (due to working away) and thoroughly enjoyed it - very entertaining but sometimes frustrating. Fairly close first half, although we just about edged it. A lot of build-up play on the outside of the box but just seemed nobody had the confidence to shoot. Often screaming for someone to just blooter it in and see what happened. First 20 minutes of the second half was shooting practice for ICT. Seems we need a bit more! And then, just as Ayr looked like they might be starting to get back into the game, Mr White scores. The balance of play changed after that, with Ayr having a bit more possession, but we could have nicked another, maybe 2. The last 5 minutes or so we were guilty of a bit of time-wasting around the corner flags, holding on till the final whistle, although I think most of us would have preferred to see the team going all out for another goal. Can't knock it though - great to get a home win!! Throughout, Tremarco impressed, with his ball control and constantly tormenting the Ayr midfield. Doran put in a shift too, but seemed to tire a bit towards the end. McHattie seemed solid enough and picked out some nice passes. McCart and Donaldson can take a lot of credit for the clean sheet. Oh aye, and Jordan White - dunno what all the fuss is about. He's alright!!!
  6. If our Board was seriously looking at promotion this season, then they would be pumping money into the club and Robbo would have a better range of players to achieve this aim. Existing players would then be parting company with the club, but Robbo wouldn't. Robbo would then win promotion, like he did the last time he was with us, and the Board pumped money into the club. Money, as it turns out, that the club couldn't really afford!
  7. Happy New Year to you too Scarlet, and here's hoping we'll be supporting a Premiership team by July!
  8. Scarlet, I don't think that remark was directed at you. More likely at the subject of the thread, with a touch of irony characteristic of that particular poster!!
  9. Yes, best wishes Scotty. Hope it all works out!
  10. "Shocking stuff", "Shocking complacency", "Truly shocked" - there's a lot of shock on this thread! I'm shocked at all this "faux outrage"
  11. Maybe a bit of an over-generalisation there, in my opinion anyway. I certainly have no issue with Irish Catholics and haven't witnessed this sort of thing in the part of Scotland I inhabit, but I take your point if you're referring to the Strathclyde region.
  12. It may surprise you to know that followers of every religion maintain the arrogant belief that theirs is the only true path! Even the Free Presbyterians!!! And it would be a fallacy to suggest that the Rangers/Celtic thing (which, lets face it, is what this is all about!) is motivated by religion . It is motivated by hatred, and religion is only an excuse.
  13. This is what I don't get - how can we put religious bigotry on the same level as racism? Religious bigotry is prejudice against people for what they believe. Racism is prejudice against people for what they are, and is many levels more serious than religious bigotry. You can change what you believe but you can't change what you are! And I think the reason for any implied complacency about this matter is that many people in the Highlands just don't get this Catholics vs Protestants thing.
