  1. He's scored 8 in his last 15 games at Wigan so he's definitely thriving down there.
  2. Totally agree with your second point, but your first point isn't adding up. We only had Lang, Crawford and Hastie on loan in the first half of the season. Hastie wasn't great but he definitely knocked his pan in, Lang was good enough to go straight back to the Wigan first team at Christmas and regardless of Crawford's performances he never looked apathetic. Kelly and Roberts coming in on loan In January saved our season. Nolan was injured (or something), Harry Smith just didn't look good enough and Magloire has been okay(ish). You could argue about quality, but there's I don't think it's fair to say the loanees attitudes were a problem.
  3. Aye, Martin Grehan. Think he was scoring about 40 a season for them. Only came off the bench once for us.
  4. Exactly. The form guide since he came in, even before the split (which skews it a bit) had us sitting 2nd and 3rd. There's been a few really disappointing performances along the way, but there isn't a team in the league that doesn't apply to and in the big picture so far Alexander has been excellent for us. I think folk are right hold back just now though - one of the biggest tests for a manager is building a squad and there's a big job this summer, however I think there's every reason for us to feel optimistic about things.
  5. Jack McMillan at Livingstone, and Dom Thomas has had his time in the Premiership with Killie. The rest seem to be floating about league one and two. Ben Hall is probably the biggest surprise. Got a great move to Brighton in 2016 and hasn't really kicked a ball till joining Falkirk last year.
  6. Moult on the Not the Old Firm podcast thingy this week saying he wouldn't rule out a return here. I imagine he'll have bigger clubs than us after him, however he talks a lot about the importance of enjoying his football and building confidence so it's not a ridiculous move for him.
  7. Theres been various articles / sources over the years saying we budget based on the guaranteed income of 10th place and no cup runs. Obviously clubs all have differing streams of income from other sources and different outgoings outwith the playing squads so its difficult to say where we sit in terms of playing budget. I think he general consensus is we tend to be in the bottom of 3 at best depending on who else is in the league.
  8. Hopefully just a drop down while he recovers from yet another injury. Him and Laurence Shankland had a ridiculous season at Ayr 2017/18 with almost 30 goals each that season to win promotion from league 1 so you'd hope that like Shankland, he's able to aim higher than that level again.
  9. Jesus Christ. Jock Brown exploding out of nowhere.
  10. The guy he made the comment about isn't from Africa - he's Dutch. Intentional or not, it's reflects that "you're from Scotland, but where are you really from" attitude which is more than a hint of "you're not really Scottish in the way I am". It alienates people who have grown up in a country they consider home and that's why it's just a shite thing to say. If you're going to make a comment / joke that can only apply to someone based on the colour of their skin, you've got to be sensitive to how it might be taken - especially if you are in a position of authority like he was. As Maurice Ross loves to do, sounds like he's opened his mouth without thinking.
  11. So he feigned injury to avoid triggering a clause in his contract which was overseen by his dad who was acting illegally as his agent. Got it.
  12. Cole is the obvious choice, but he's never looked like a bad player. He's finally playing in the right position in the right system. Its Lamie for me. I'm not going as far as Jock "if Lamie had pace he'd be playing at the highest level" Brown, but he's been very very good recently. Unfortunately for him, he's now that player who some fans are just waiting to make a mistake so they can announce how shite he is. He doesn't make any more or any fewer mistakes than others in defence yet his wobbly start has left an impression that seems hard to shift. Hopefully those fans get over it and get behind the guy.
  13. Racial insensitivity just a stone's throw from religious intolerance. He's working his way through the badges for that very job.
  14. Seems like a guy with the absolute right attitude. Here's his comments when he left St Mirren -
  15. I'm sure they're still valuable advertising space, but Im not sure it's 'prime' space for TV. The actual coverage for TV is poor - those areas barely feature in the actual match, even touchline cameras don't tend to be wide enough to take any of it in. At best, there will be a brief glimpse in the build up to a live game.
  16. Is this fact? I know he had a couple of short spells out, but he was fit and just not getting a game when he was told he could find a new club.
  17. Made an arse of it a few times today, but can't remember him doing that too often in other games.
  18. Thought the Hunter Stand looked great today.
  19. I thought so, it was Cole who booted the ball away.
  20. We looked the hungrier team for large spells today - fair play to Alexander for instilling that mindset. Even though we drifted out it during the second half that was still a really enjoyable game.
  21. Another year under Alexander could see Cole get a really decent move. He's really showed his quality the last few months. If we can keep him for next season that would be huge.
  22. Well deserved. 100% win record and zero goals conceded for the whole month of April.* *who gives a fuck if it was only 1-0 wins against St Mirren and Accies
  23. Ah, fair enough. It looks daft but at least it's not permanent.
  24. Yeah, quite liked the MFC. At least we didn't go the opposite way and do something completely shite like Aberdeens new makeover. Those fan silhouettes look awful.
