  1. I missed the game due to a family birthday so interested in the views above. I thought we were poor in last week’s win, and it sounds like we were poorer today. We are missing Walsh and Welsh. Hopefully Walsh is back soon. Any word on him or Todorov? Of what I’ve seen of Storey, he is better playing wide, but not as effective as Walsh. Keatings can hopefully start next week and we continue our success against Morton. Sounds like today was a good day to be unable to attend, though.
  2. No word of any problem. they’ve been watering it heavily all season, even on days when there has been rain so I expect it will be fine.
  3. I can’t make tomorrow’s game due to family commitments so will tune in if I get a chance.
  4. HT 1-0 FT 3-1 ICT White Alloa Trouten Crowd 2145
  5. Glad it’s a non Championship side and a home game makes us favourites. I agree with DD, no room for complacency but hopefully we progress to the semis and then the final. Momentum is important.
  6. It was so tempting to vote 8 (John McKendrick) for the referee, but he did well so I voted good. Still not forgiven him for that shocker when he sent Vigurs off for nothing though.
  7. Back home now and have read my comments which are probably a bit negative on reflection. We did the job, had a comfortable win, got game time for some fringe and younger players and are in the quarter finals. Mackay really only had one meaningful save to make and dealt with it at the second attempt, whilst he had no chance with the two attempts Alloa hit the woodwork with. Rooney was dangerous, but could have been given the ball more by Storey when he was looking to overlap. Harper had a decent game, particularly first half, largely taking a safety first approach. Donaldson and McHattie has a comfortable afternoon in the main. Trafford was busy and it was a powerful shot that took a deflection. Carson chases and harried and used the ball well when he had it. I was a bit disappointed by Storey. He kept the ball when a pass could have given us better opportunities, particularly when Rooney was upfield, but his pace was troubling the defence and his cross set up the third. Doran kept the ball well, but tended to slow play down. MacGregor had two chances in the first half. The first was a difficult header from a powerful Rooney cross. The second fell to him but he couldn’t get enough on the ball. I was surprised Curry started up front rather than wide. He took his goal well and had a couple of other efforts. White was a nuisance to the defence when he came on, whilst Vincent was steady. Highlight was the late cameo from Machado and the sheer joy when he scored at the back post. Only 973 there, if I heard the tannoy announcement correctly. And John McKendrick had a good afternoon as referee.
  8. Same outcome but with better performance would do!!
  9. Great to see Machado turn it in at the back post. Comfortable win but it felt quite a flat game overall. Second half performance was better than first. Hard to see how Alloa troubled Dundee United though.
  10. 2-0. Trafford with a shot that took a deflection. Slightly better this half.
  11. I agree. Doran has slowed play. Seen little of Storey. Curry and MacGregor lively but not getting much ball to use. Rooney has created most when he has gone forward Harper has had a good 45. Hope Machado appears at some point in the second half. Todorov not in squad: is he injured?
  12. Curry 1-0. Played in by a bad Alloa pass but he took it very well. Probably just deserved as poor game so far. Only other highlights two chances MacGregor failed to take in front of goal That half is best described as scrappy. We have been too slow in the main. Alloa have rarely threatened. Hopefully a better second half will follow.
  13. Bulk of possession so far but pretty even. Curry is playing as our striker, supported by MacGregor.
  14. Warm(ish) and sunny in the ground. Here’s to a good 90 minutes! The ref is John McKendrick: oh dear!!
