  1. Seems to be taking us a while to find our feet in games this season - why so many long balls in that wind in the first half? - but a much improved second half performance. Getting the early second half goal was probably crucial, as Arbroath sat in really well in the first half once they had scored, but we used the ball far better after that. Kennedy looks like he'll create a lot for us, Todorov misses chances but gets into the right positions and is starting to put a run together, and Allardice is looking like a great signing already. With so many players still to come back, lots of reasons fo
  2. The camera seemed a bit more consistently focused on the play in the second half, but hopefully the club is still exploring other options; a manned camera and a commentator who knows the team would make a huge difference.
  3. I’ve got no problem at all with you having an opinion, and in fact I broadly agree with your opinion that Brad McKay probably isn’t good enough for any team with hopes of promotion from this league. What I do have a problem with is your repeated name-calling and personal attacks on our manager. What exactly has a man who has achieved successive third and second-place finishes, against better-resourced teams with a reduced budget each season, done to warrant being called a ‘stupid donkey’ by you? Frame your criticisms in a respectful manner and no-one will have a problem with them; continue to

  5. Just catching up with this now, and a combination of injuries and having managed to watch streams of some of our pre-season and cup games has me rethinking a bit. I'd picked Harper over McHattie because of the way Barry Wilson raved about him in the close season, insisting that he was 'ready' and pretty much acknowledging that Tremarco hadn't been made a new contract offer for that reason. Harper's inexperience was evident against Hearts though (admittedly up against a very good player in Ginnelly), so I wouldn't be averse to McHattie maybe starting the season as first pick, although I'd love
  6. I think it's very likely that this is what Robbo will go for, unless he prefers McKay and Harper to Devine and McHattie. I'd go for exactly the same back four and midfield two as you; the one change I'd quite like to see (but I don't see any chance of Robbo making it) is Toddy dropping out, Keating playing as our 9 and Vincent coming in, either as the 10 or on the right of the three. I worry that with Todorov starting we'll be too quick to start just trying to hit him with long balls, and nothing really seems to stick to him. Obviously Keatings' tendency to drop deep to try to pick up the bal
  7. We discussed this on the latest podcast a week past Friday and at the time I went for: Ridgers McKay Devine Deas Harper Welsh Carson Doran MacKay Keatings Sutherland Throwing Sutherland and Dan MacKay in there would obviously be a bit of a gamble, but my thinking was that I really don't want another season of seeing us slinging it up to a big target man from 30 yards in front of the goal line, and that front four would in theory allow for a bit more fluidity and flexibility up front, espe
  8. Think this one might appeal to the likes of @Govan Jaggie, @Kingsmills and @RednBlackComeback in particular... 😉 Seriously though, Charlie talks with so much passion about the club, about Highland football generally, and about how he likes the game to be played, that it's well worth 45 mins of anyone's time.
  9. Brilliant, thanks - I won't be on this episode, but I'll certainly pass it on to the guys who are interviewing SG. Even if they're late, it would be great if these things could still happen.
  10. Out of interest, what were the broken promises you're referring to? The 25th anniversary year certainly seemed underwhelming and as a centrepiece, the ball at the Drummossie was really ill-conceived, but I can't remember what else was promised.
  11. It's really good to hear that - cheers! We did have a discussion about the unusual length once we had finished recording, but hoped that the majority of listeners would be more tolerant of it than they would in other circumstances because of the 'time to kill' factor. The edit is a lot of work for Moff at the best of times. Glad the time stamps were helpful too.
  12. Really appreciate the feedback guys - thanks. Part 2 is a cracker too - Carlo and Greg were brilliant.
  13. One of us made Doran his first choice to be offered a new contract... 😉
