    Nostalgia Night 5/10/18

    Any word on who's going to be there?

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Oh absolutely, I can understand why he doesn't make the step up, but as a fan I'd love to see it. Don't give up the day job quite yet.

    Aberdeen Man of the Match

    Bigi for me. Looked like the only player in a claret and amber shirt who actually wanted to play football.

    If only the manager of this well-performing youth side would entertain making the step up to the first team. That's what's frustrated me over the past few years. And yeah, I know he enjoys his BT gig and all that jazz, but still, he's looking like someone who could step up and do a job in the senior game.

    Rangers Man of the Match

    Bigi looked like the most accomplished player on the park, and considering the money spent by Rangers on players, that's a noteworthy accomplishment.
  6. Storybook ending for the big man. Nose surrender!
  7. Going on our form so far we should probably lose this one pretty handily, but I'd not be surprised at all if we are on here after the game talking about how the point we got from the game is more two points lost than one gained.

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    Those calling for the managers heads should be fully aware that we don't have a reactionary leadership at this club, he'll be given until the end of October at least unless we do something mental like not winning a single game over the next five to seven ties.
  9. Another bad day at the office, and while it's certainly cause for concern it's not the end of the world as some would have us believe. I'm actually surprised half the posts on here don't contain more errors, as it must be difficult to type with your knees jerking all over the shop. First of all, we were shite. I'm not defending the team or the manager at all. This is the part where Robinson either proves his managerial acumen by changing things up and giving the opposition something different to think about, or he continues as he is and ultimately fails. Time will tell in that regard. Personally, he's got until about the end of October to get things in order. If we're still sitting in a relegation spot then serious questions will have to be asked, especially if we're still playing as we are. I also think people need to get a grip with the Bigi chat. No one claimed he was the fucking messiah, what I saw people saying was "he likes to play football on the deck, why not play him in an attempt to change things up a bit?" That doesn't mean he comes into a poor side, plays equally as poor as the rest of the team in a poor game against Accies and should be shot down as rubbish and dismissed. How many games has he played this season? Do you think he's match fit? If Robinson decides to try and implement a Plan B then there's a good chance that Bigi should be a part of that. Not the central piece, not the fucking messiah, just a part of it. He offers something different in the middle of the park, simple as that. Dundee is looking like a crucial game for us, surrounded as it is by games against Rangers, Hearts, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock. Assuming we get nothing from the other games (which, if I'm honest, is a long shot, as we always fear these games then somehow spring a win against one of these sides) then the Dundee game is critical. We need to win that one. October will be important. With home games against Livingston and St Johnstone, and away games with St Mirren and Celtic, if we come out of October in the relegation zone then it could be time to make some changes at managerial level.

    Truth is, none of us really know much about these new signings, same as we didn't know much about the new signings last year, or the year before. Give it a month or two and then we'll know a bit more.

    I'm just thoroughly disappointed and appalled that an admin is taking part in these shenanigans.

    An agents fee is his own business, no one else's. He's paid what the club and/or player agrees to pay him.

    I don't necessarily think it's anything to do with the youth setup, it's just that the current bunch of kids we have at the moment either aren't quite ready for first-team football or they're not good enough. No youth setup on the planet consistently churns out top-class talent, we're even seeing Barcelona's famed La Masia go through a bit of a dry spell. At the moment we have Barry McGuire, Chris Cadden & Allan Campbell either in the team or on the fringes and probably some other names that I'm forgetting, so it's not too bad. As the old saying goes, if they're good enough they'll play.

    Agreed. A luxury we can't really afford in my opinion. He'll likely be on his travels again by January after getting sent off and gaining 25lbs.

    Thing for me as far as Ciftci goes is that his last show of being anything close to a decent football was three years ago, and since then he's been at five clubs in three years. Among his highlights over those years has been involvement in a mass brawl, and criticism in the media and from management about his fitness and application. He's scored 11 goals in 50 games over those three years. I know some see him as being worth a punt, but I just don't think he has the attitude and application to get back to where he was three years ago, let alone fit in with a team that has one of the highest work ethics in the league.
