  1. I don't know why I bother renewing my season ticket we have no ambition at all. Why would we off load two of our best players when we are sitting second in the league and potentially only four games from returning to the Premier League. As has been said in previous posts we rescued both Donaldson and Rooney and they owe us to at least see out their contracts and do the best they can for their employers. However I have confidence in Robbo, he's done it before. and if he has the stomach for it, I guess he can do it again.
  2. Can't understand why Robbo persists with White. He's absolutely unable to hold or head a ball. Given his size he should be winning at least 50% of all balls in the air. Trafford MOM not because he was skilful but more for his effort which was missing in all the others, woeful performance and lucky we only lost 3.
  3. That was rubbish. Why on earth we did sign all those youngsters last summer on full time contracts and then spend all season not playing any of them. Apart from Mckay and MacGregor's cameo appearances non have played. Come on Robbo you have two 'nothing' games to show why you signed the boys.
  4. Still buzzing but I have one concern about last night. Anthony McDonald, had a fair game but I couldn't help thinking why on earth we have brought up an 18 year old from Edinburgh when apparently we have half a dozen local young lads on full time contracts not getting a sniff. If I was one of those youngsters I would be asking why am I not being given the same chance? Guaranteed that Hearts are paying young Anthony's wages but this smacks of a cosy deal between Robbo and Levein. Come on Robbo give our youngsters a chance.
  5. Utter rubbish as a lot have said, no wonder our home crowds are down to circa 2000. Brad McKay is a train crash and everyone but Robbo can see that. We are in real trouble and next season heading for our lowest ever season ticket sales figures if what a large number of people I have talked to are saying.
  6. Strange then that BBC Scotland linked the resignation story with a story that the Club's 2018 accounts hadn't yet been submitted and that the club had until mid March to do this and also that the 2018 AGM has still not been called!
  7. All the best Scotty, Dawn sends her regards and prayers too.
  8. Fair play to Scotty for setting this up with the best of intentions. Such a shame it's a betting company. Having lost my brother in law, an ex professional footballer, in no small way to the horrendous debt he accumulated, I despise bookmakers who can take and take and destroy lives. Of course the bookmaker cannot take all the blame as the punter must shoulder a large chunk of the responsibility.
  9. Brilliant result, with Ayr and County losing we are back at the top, saved me £20 and two hours time.
  10. Yeah the old man was one of the first soldiers from Poland to land in Inverness towards the end of WW2. His camp was in Kiltarlity although there were many other Polish camps in the area. You can still see the remains of the camp but I guess there are very few people alive who know exactly where it is. Dad was groundsman when the likes of Hamish Munro, Alan Pressley, Bobby Noble, Bobby Bolt etc were playing. He was never a footballer as he was fighting in the War from the age of 14 as the Germans invaded Poland. Looking back I can see how conscientious he was given he had no experience at all in maintaining grounds. It was actually a huge responsibility at that time given the wage he would have received, more a labour of love. The same would apply of course to all groundsmen at every club. Anyway, still would be interested to fill in the gaps for both clubs, these men deserve to have their recognition as they played a major part in the history of Caledonian and Thistle.
  11. Not sure if this topic has been researched previously but here goes. Can we name the unsung groundsmen of both Caley and Jags over the years? These men, at least I don't think there have been any women, had to get up early on match days to carry out the various tasks that contributed hugely to the afternoon match before and after kick off. Lining the park, cutting the grass, putting up the nets and flag poles, sawdust on the penalty spot, clear wasps nests from the wooden terracing, painting and all round general maintenance. For all this they received little or no pay and little or no recognition. Life for a grounds person has become much more professional now I guess, in days gone by all you needed was an ability to cut grass and patch a few holes with sand. You were still responsible for getting the match on though despite the weather. So, here goes, easy for me to remember my late father ex part time groundsman of Caley at Telford Street from 1956 to about 1960, his name then was Jan Gneba (John Dow). After he quit, because of other work commitments, I think Dan Bisset took over from him. Dad was a Caley Road man and Dan Laurel Avenue. It would be interesting to see a list of both clubs groundsmen over the years?
  12. Strange that Robertson was fully behind this cup last year and yet this year totally disrupts the good team spirit he enthused about then by making wholesale changes. We really had a good chance to progress in this competition now we have little left other than the league. Saying that I thought Walsh and Welsh were both excellent as was Calder. Polworth I am afraid really looks like a player who needs a change, I said that on Saturday and nothing changed my mind tonight. Big shout out to all who attended the game, just over 1000 a great crowd.
  13. Shouting abuse at Polly is bang out of order but he looks totally disinterested. It's time for a change for him me thinks and if the rumours are true then good luck to him.
  14. if we are in so much financial trouble that we are trying to offload just one high earner who has served this club handsomely over the years and is merely working the contract that was put in front of him then we are doomed. Can't have it both ways that we moan when a player leaves for higher wages and then we complain when we are paying what is described as SPL wages. Stick with it Gary the club owes you. If half our squad worked as hard as Gary then we would sail back into the Premier League. Yes nothing lasts forever but what price loyalty.
  15. GDPR. There is no time to waste for organisations to be ready as it is introduced on May 25 this year 2018. As far as I can gather it has nothing to do with the Brexit date in 2019.
