    Me and my mum have also sat in the Cooper for 25 years, and whilst I'm not aware of actually knowing you or your dad, I recognise him from the photos as a regular face in the stand. I hope you make it to the County game...I lost my dad suddenly a week before the Aberdeen Scottish Cup semi at Hampden the other season, and going to that game was the best thing I could have done during that whole period. I can also confirm that if anyone was still wondering with the benefit of hindsight where Curtis Main pulled a finish like that from, it was my da' making it happen. Apologies for misleading everyone . All the best to you and yours.

    I'm not talking about him being off his game, i'm talking about him pulling out of challenges and not putting the usual meat behind the ball in a 50/50, in the way that someone would if they were protecting a knee or an ankle or something. For the record though I completely agree with you about Hylton on Friday.

    We commented at the game that Tait did that 3 or 4 times on Friday. We wondered if he was maybe protecting an injury or something, he really didn't look himself at all.

    Main would just be swapping one reason for not scoring goals for another. Johnson would be as much of a waste as Scott, as it doesn't matter who's there if you don't have anyone that can deliver the ball to them in a semi-decent area.

    Choosing the tactic of having everything go though a guy playing long diagonal Pirlo/Beckham passes, and deciding Charles Dunne is going to be that guy, is like deciding you want a room full of balloons for a party and choosing Edward Scissorhands to blow them up. What's even more stupid, is then not being able to understand why your party has no balloons.

    I still think we'll finish 4th.

    From what I gather, Shankland was asking for 3 grand a week and a 300k signing on fee. United gave him it.

    I actually agree with that part that I've put in bold. For me it was one of those days where the weather is great, the crowd is great, everyone is in a cracking mood and it feels like one of those days where the players are just going to revel in it, and then they don't. That always makes disappointment feel worse.

    As I said in the post you actually quoted, i'm not blaming it for our performance. In fact i'm not even relating it to specifically our game at all. It just makes watching football matches in general, a less appealing way to spend time when it's already too expensive across the board.

    Absolutely agree with that. I was thinking today that it should be classed in the same category as a restricted view ticket. Have a plastic pitch if you like, but you can't charge full price for a ticket as you're restricting the product fans are paying to watch.

    I've never really waded in on the whole plastic pitch thing before, but it's getting beyond a joke. Not even blaming it for us not being great today, it just makes games shite to watch overall.

    Never in any doubt, although i'd always be nice to Gaz in the hope he takes me with him next time he's playing in a Vegas poker tourney.
