    2019-20 League Cup

    While I’m realistic enough to realise we are unlikely to challenge Celtic, Rangers and probably Aberdeen, if you can’t have a bit of optimism about a cup run and/or a top 6 finish in August, whats the point? Our 2 league games have been against Celtic who will win the league at a canter and Livi who are very strong at home on a tricky surface. I’m not going to write us off as relegation candidates based on those 2 games, nor have us winning the league because we beat Annan and Dumbarton... I think we could be most improved team this season. I don’t think that’s unrealistic.

    2019-20 Rebuild

    Thought the same, especially given previous interest. Although apparently Fraser Forster on loan is the favourite...

    2019-20 League Cup

    Hearts look utter dung and Hibs don’t look any better. I think not only can we beat them tonight, we can finish ahead of them in the league. Naismith is their best player by a mile and he’s had rotten luck with injuries.

    Away fans in the POD

    I think people mistake stewards for security staff. Stewards are paid minimum wage to point you to your seat, tell you where the pie stand is and politely asks you to behave. They will act as a deterrent to bad behaviour, but the reality is they can’t, won’t and shouldn’t do a thing about it beyond a request to behave.

    Were they behaving offensively? I think there needs to be an element of live and let live. It’s not like the Green Brigade were given the main stand. I’ve taken an unused season ticket for games at Parkhead and Ibrox and nobody had a problem.
  6. I didn’t think there was, but they upgraded Carroll’s last week. It was a 50/50 ball and Bolingoli shat out it. It’s not why we lost yesterday, but we got nothing from Walsh. Whilst I thought our penalty claim was on the soft side, 3 times in the game he gave Celtic a foul for similar incidents, 2 of those he gave a yellow card with. One of them lead to the ball coming up the park for the foul on Griffiths for the 2nd goal. The handball by Bolingoli in build up to 4th was a clear handball under any interpretation of the laws, old or new, his hand was straight up in the air. I didn’t see much if any contact at their penalty either, but would need to see again. Its hard enough up against them.

    I don’t really have a problem with fans of other teams. I live amongst them every day. If they aren’t causing any bother and just want to watch their team I wouldn’t get too worked up about it, they’re just football fans that prefer a different team. Club have done a great thing cutting the main stand tickets at a 6 figure cost across the season. They can’t individually vet every guest that comes with sponsors etc.
  8. Anybody else think that said pitch invasion at first. Wonder how they will behave today? They might try and take the moral high ground? Or more likely revert to type. Overcrowd the front of south stand, set off pyro, go on the track if they score, sing about the IRA and smash some seats. Can see clubs like us and Killie having to cut their allocation further, as it’s clear the police aren’t willing or able to control them. Either we’ll decide it’s not worth it, or something serious will happen and the decision will be taken out our hands. h**s at Killie last weekend could be considered a warning/near miss.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    I don’t even think they booked anyone for leaving the field. I’d be quite happy if they relaxed that rule, but feel it would’ve been appropriate in that instance. No yellow cards No yellow card yellow card

    This is exactly why Celtic and Rangers win almost every appeal, no matter how frivolous. The SFA know they’ll lawyer up and drive a bus through the holes in their case.
  11. With their midweek game, they’ll be knackered by 5pm. :p

    Saw a rumour on one of the FB pages that Esteban Casagolda is on trial at Killie.

    On the whole loan debate, generally have no issue with it, it’s open to everyone. Does seem to be getting used as a way round FFP, loans with transfer later to move into new season etc. Celtic do also seem to use the loan system to troll Rangers, did they not flood hibs with loan players when they were in championship with Rangers, then start loaning to Aberdeen when they were competing for 2nd/3rd....

    Think players have started leaving decent sized South American teams to go to the MLS. Whether this says more about the decline of South American football, I don’t know. Most of the best players are in Europe as teenagers now. Its no longer just a retirement home for star players though. Cadden isn’t going to play in La liga or Serie A. So MLS is a great opportunity. No language barrier, good lifestyle etc....

    Was there not something about us getting Trevor Carson from Hartlepool for less than we should’ve due to them being in admin or something?
