  1. Sore one to take, United made a lot of poor touches gifting us possession, I think we won every header and looked alright in midfield with Polworth doing a lot of the work. When United went down to 10 men I thought we might get our equaliser but it was same old story of chance after chance. Hopefully a much better performance on Sunday.
  2. Mind the last time we gave a manager such a long contract? Sure he was the ex-captain and had a funny looking beard.
  3. I hope we keep our play off spot but I can't see it happening, Queen of the South are right behind us and one win puts them into the mix and given the fact we have been so poor recently its likely we will drop down a couple places and miss out. The fallout is a lot of fans will be fuming given that we narrowly missed out last season and will call for Robbo to go (but Im sure he has a 4 year contract and hell stay) and those fans will then not renew their season ticket meaning even less money.
  4. I wish I shared your optimism Jed, I have looked into my crystal ball and foresee a defeat on Tuesday and Saturday. End of season we will finish outside the play off place trailing behind Queen of the South. If we beat County on Tuesday and turn things around and put a good gap between us and Queen of the South, I will buy a hat, roast it with peas and onions and eat it.
  5. Suggestion, the young lad with the drum. Let him in for free so long as he stirs up the north stand to sing throughout the game, or if we are really watching the pennys give him a half time pie and a cuppa for his efforts. And maybe tell the north stand Stewards to let them stand up and sing. Sure they're meant to sit but do you ever see anyone sit down and sing?
  6. Agreed, its a bit naff that The 'Jewel in the crown' is sat a stones throw from a caravan site and a dump with not much else. I know its easy to say this is bad this is bad without offering a solution but short of a die hard fan winning the euro-millions and throwing cash at the club nothing will change. Would love a new stadium being built even if the council own it like a community campus but its not likely at all.
  7. Highly doubt it would happen since Robbo has signed a contract to 2021 I think it is.
  8. If I asked such a question I can guarantee I would have got a political answer like "We have things in place, we are exploring avenues'' or a "Thanks for coming" and he'd go to the next table. He also said he actually joined the board just as Kenny Cameron was leaving, so I suppose the better person to ask would be Mr Cameron. My uncle got most of his time asking where he was from and what attracted him to being Chairman of the club, I chose to ask about what was planned for our 25th and then got stuck in about the hog roast before it got cold.
  9. Mr Rae said something about that, saying we are in the red before we even kick a ball at the start of the season, whats the chances of steadying the ship and attracting a solid following in the Championship?
  10. Graeme Rae came to chat to us at Hospitality at the QoS game, he was a really nice guy and did say they were looking at a couple of players, I wouldnt get our hopes up though he later said it is really hard getting players here with what little money we have. I honestly worry about the club, where did all of our money go? was it on the players Butcher and Yogi had? Was it putting Richie in the captains chair and then paying him off and getting Robbo? Mixture of both?
  11. I personally thought we started the first half reasonably well, I saw atleast two chances which should have been put away with the header a few feet out going traight at Alan Martin and a scramble off the line. I noticed we wanted to pass to a player with 3 defenders around them rather than to draw them out wide, which everyone sitting around me could see wasnt working, yet we kept doing it. Queens looked to be trying the long ball to their strikers in each counter attack which we got away with, each time they came up they looked dangerous. Second half looked almost like Robbo told the lads that the passing to feet infront of goal wasnt working so we should cut down the left wing. On atleast 3 occasions however, I could see players bunched on the left with Brad MacKay standing on the right wing at the halfway line with acres of space to carry it up but no one making that pass. Everytime we gave away possession, Queens would came up the park and it looked like we would panic and if we did clear we seemed to run halfway up the park and stop. Queen players had plenty of time to come back and organise themselves and we would just seem to pass back and try up the left wing again. We really need to work on counter attacks, the lads appear to not have have any confidenece to carry it up the park and appear to get halfway and stop and passing back. Barry Wilson said we got our goal and sat in which was bad, but I feel like the reaction of the players when they equalised was worse, everyones heads went down and then they literally just tot down the side and slot the ball in the bottom left, it looked like everyone was static and just watched. We can't only blame the strikers now, there are 8 other players on the pitch and none of them appeared to be stepping up and getting us going, we looked clueless, leaderless and just awful.
  12. Unbeaten run comes to a shart of an end by Falkirk. If our boys are playing as lethargic as described then things need a bloody good shake up, Shambles.
  13. Very disappointed to see the lads come back from the international break and not put this one to bed. Shame to see the trend of 1 out 3 shots being on target and 12 shots with only 1 goal. ach well, hopefully when they come up the road it will be a different story. That said, Edinburgh City are top of their table playing 12 and winning 10, losing only to Elgin and Clyde, they would have been well up for today.
  14. Hoo Mark Ridgers hes (also) one of our own! So relieved to get the win, Well done lads!
