  1. We looked excellent for about 10 minutes then managed to fall into the usual Gayfield trap of engaging in an aerial bombardment which had my eyes bleeding. I just don't understand why we think this will prove to be a success against Arbroath. Only plus point of the day was my steak and black pudding pie. Worth nothing that the stewards at Gayfield again making this a rather heavy day out. I'm sure they'll be as brave next week when Dundee fill the away end.
  2. Rossonerri merda 🤮 😉
  3. Deaie me - just watched the Dodds post-match interview. What conclusion can we draw from these latest comments other than establishing that the guy is completely delusional and incapable of arresting our ongoing downward spiral. The very least he can do is hold his hands up and be honest with us, instead we get the same meaningless platitudes every week and frankly disingenuous analyis of a performance which was rank rotten for all to see. Meanwhile we have the usual deafening silence from Gardiner and the board. The level of communication and transparency, at a full-time club which has spent significant time in the Premiership, would genuinely embarass most Highland League sides. Grim times.
  4. Tokely nailed it on comms; no workrate, no heart, no desire.
  5. I'm sorry but Dodds has got to go after this debacle. Another absolutely pitiful performance with no sign of any coherent game plan. We are a club in freefall.
  6. Same story every week. We dominate posession but do nothing with it. Passing is generally atrocious. Opposition goes up the park and scores from their solitary attempt. We huff and puff and generally look incapable of scoring. It's absolutely soul destroying. If we get nothing out of today we really need to be looking at a radical change of direction.
  7. The sad fact is that this club is heading for lower league oblivion with the current incumbents in charge. Dodds is clearly out of his depth, christ knows what Robbo's role is. The board are asleep at the wheel wirh communication worse than ever. Wholesale change required asap. Best ever chance to escape the Championship and we simply don't look interested. An utter shambles.
  8. Fantastic achievement from the Young Team. Hope to see a few of these lads making the step up in the next year or two.
  9. Dandy mate says he's lightning fast. Was a bit of a rising star for 2 or 3 games then benched for rest of his time at the Dons without any apparent explanation. An interesting signing whom you'd hope would kick on in the Championship.
  10. Turning into another massively disappointing season. Promotion was there for the taking if we could have shown a bit of character. Really poor result today.
  11. I hear popular beat combo The Beatles have split up too.
  12. An absolutely dire performance apart from McAlear's worldy. I'm rapidly losing faith in Dodds' ability to pick a winning team or motivate the squad. New blood desparately needed before we throw away the best chance in years of escaping the Championship. Rapidly turning into a massively frustrating season. Frustration aside you really have to laugh at Sportsound awarding the Championship to media darlings Killie and Del boy after one win against a bang average Queens side. They could be propping up the league and the pundits would still be tipping them for the title.
  13. I thought you were a maths teacher (retired) rather than a frustrated Ingerlish teacher? I think it's fair to say we could do with a certain Physics teacher (retired) to keep us right on matters of neurolinguistic and grammatical competence, dressing room decorum and employment law jurisprudence. I blame those pesky nats for this (frankly lamentable) decline in standards.....🤣
  14. Absolutely dreadful second half. Should have been home and hosed at half time. Going to be a long season....hugely frustrating after such a strong start.
  15. I believe we're in for 20% but this is a breathtakingly poor move for Ryan from a purely footballing perspective. Good to see him get away from Celtic and the toxic abuse he received from the greatest fans in the world but his agent needs shooting. Would have liked to see him try his hand abroad so to see him end up at a bang average Championship side is really disappointing and selling the lad well short.
  16. That's Fyfe off to Nairn until January which I believe leaves us with six defenders, assuming Carson is now classed as a defender. This would surely suggest we have someone incoming...or am I being overly optimistic.
  17. Just beat me to it. First match since Hibs at Easter Road in February 2020. Can't really count the recent Cormack Park debacle.....
  18. Good to see BBC Radio Scotland offering the balanced views of former Hearts Manager/Sporting Director Craig Levein and rabib Hearts supporter Alan Preston this evening. Preston taking the opportunity to talk up a Roddy McGregor move to "big English clubs". Given Preston's role as an agent (represented Dan McKay in his move to Hibs) it's nice of the BBC to offer Preston the opportunity to speculate - seems very well informed. Heaven forbid he might use this platform for his own personal gain.....
  19. Given Tuesday night's defensive train wreck this, on the face of it, seems like a very strange decision. Unless I'm mistaken that leaves us with six recognised defenders (Broadfoot, Deas, Devine, Duffy, Harper and Fyfe) which suggests we either have reinforcements lined up or Dodds has decided to play 2 at the back over the Winter period.
  20. Stoney Cowboys we are here...yeeha, yeeha! No Brokeback Mountain comments please 🙂
  21. Nipped along earlier in an attempt to catch some of the action. Total no go gaining access to the facility so ended up in a farmer's field with ymip Jr, a handful of Aberdeen fans and a former ICT player, all strugglling to make out a great deal. The Aberdeen fan we got talking to suggested we'd taken the lead early on - possibly through Shane Sutherland. Jay Emmanuel Thomas equalised for the dismal dons. Ten minutes into the second half the irate farmer decided to release his herd of cows into the field which necessitated a tactical retreat. We were then so far away it was again difficult to make out much of the action but looked like it ended 1-1. Couldn't really make out much of starting line-up but we seemed to start second half along these lines: Ridgers - Harper, Jevan Anderson, Fyffe, Carson, Gardyne, Hyde,Doran, AN Other, Walsh, Duku All in all a bit of a fruitless exercise but we seemed to be competing with dons throughout and can claim to have been part of possibly the smallest #caleyaway since we played the dons at the bararacks at Bridge of Don about 20+ years ago.
  22. I'm hearing we're supposed to be playing Aberdeen behind closed doors at their Cormack Park training centre today. Said training centre is about a 5 minute walk from my work so if anyone knows what time it's kicking off I wouldn't mind a heads up!
  23. Jesus wept........it's a resounding no from the Stonehaven jury. Massive new season buzz killer.
