  1. Following the end of one of our more memorable seasons I thought a thread for folk to post their photos in might be a good idea. Be it pub-related shenanigans abroad during our European adventures, or Scottish cup final related pictures, we can all post our memories (both good & cringeworthy!) in this thread.

    Where are the bois?

    No, "we" don't. The authorities do. Big difference. "We" get to sit on our hands and murmur quietly when the team isn't playing well.

    Someone get these two scamps a knife and fork, eh?

    Problem is, it doesn't quite work like that. We don't get to ask a small group of lads to provide the atmosphere for the entire stadium, but to only do so on terms that we find acceptable. We're talking about a group of individuals here, not a division of the boy scouts. Like loose groups of lads up and down the country (and all over the world) who go to football games you're going to see some undesirable actions, usually committed by a minority. That's how it goes.

    Something being wrong with his knee that would keep him out for a large chunk of time is the only thing that could scupper it I think. Obviously if he can't play that changes everything. But as far as another team coming in and beating us to him or whatever, that won't happen. The deal is done on that front, he's coming to us.

    For fuck sake, would you rather that if someone hears some transfer news they just don't mention it? Choose to believe or not, it's your choice, but there's paperwork that still needs sorted and suchlike, just minor stuff really, but there's no other club in the running from what I've heard.

    Deal is done lads, chill out. Announcement once the window is officially open.

    Aye, no point in fucking about. If I hear something that sounds credible I'll post it, not got much time for cryptic nonsense or the classic "heard it from my brothers wife's mate who plays 5 a-sides with the guy who drives the team bus" stuff. Should hopefully be the forward we've been crying out for.
  9. The MLS season doesn't start until March, so there's a possibility maybe? It's not as if they'd need him right away. Apparently so.

    Nah, I hear lots of rumours from those types of folk and don't bother with them. This is from someone who should know.

    I'd say so, yeah. I'm obviously not 100% certain, but the person who told me seems to believe it's pretty much a done deal and will be announced shortly, and they have no reason to lie. I didn't believe them at first either. I'm not entirely sure I do still!

    Ross McCormack deal apparently just about done. will be a cracking signing if it happens.

    Think it'll be someone better who's brought in as a replacement for Bowman.

    I have to admit, the Sammon loan deal was a bit of a weird one when it was announced. I was fairly certain he'd go on to do nothing of note, and wondered why we didn't just give young Scott the opportunity to play backup to Main, Bowman and Johnson? Does anyone know if we can cut his loan deal short in January? Or are we stuck with him until the end of the season?
  15. Well, the fans wanted changes and something different after the St Mirren game I guess...

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

    It could also be said that Robinson showing faith in him and putting him in the team is what has led to the rumoured interest from the likes of Southampton in the first place, couldn't it? Make no mistake about it, if Turnbull decides to move on to bigger things it'll be due to a combination of factors, none of which include him being "forced out the door" or being unhappy playing under Robinson. If anything he will owe Robinson and the rest of the management team at the club a debt of gratitude.
  17. I reckon we'll snatch a point, but would be thrilled if we took all three points. Kilmarnock are a quality outfit at the moment, but if we play as we know we can, there's no reason we can't win today.

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

    Top post Fizoxy, although you'll no doubt be accused by some as just being "Burrow's pal" or some other nonsense. Personally, I quite like the fact that we can rest easy knowing that those in charge aren't going to do anything stupid, such as sack the manager in January when we're still clear of the bottom two. If we ever find ourselves going on the kind of run (which would also require one of the bottom two to go on a successful run) which sees us drop down that far then questions can and should be asked at that point, but not before. Again, we can look at things in the summer and there may very well be a change of management at that point, but doing so beforehand in the current circumstances would be madness.
  19. Not really. The truth is, if someone moans like fuck about every manager we have they're going to be able to say "ah, I told you so!" eventually, as every manager eventually goes in the end, and rarely of their own volition. These are usually the same people who dismiss our cup runs because we didn't win the cups in question, and who are usually posted missing when we win a game. You've been around long enough to know the script.
  20. What's the time frame for not referencing that one game whenever we talk about facing a side we should be confident of getting a result against? It's been five years now, so I'm guessing it's at least ten?
  21. The ones on here moaning and wanting Robinson out are pretty much the same crowd that was moaning about Barraclough, McCall, McGhee and so on. It's just how it is.

    And I'm not saying that our league should be better than MLS. I wouldn't expect it to be, we're a small country and financially our game is miles behind. Me saying that moving to MLS from Motherwell is a step up isn't intended as a put-down to us or our league, it's just a fact I think. More money, bigger crowds, better facilities, playing against some top names.

    Look, I'm invested in Scottish football, same as everyone else here, but I'm under no illusions that for a viewer who has no vested interest in any of the teams it would be akin to me watching an English League One or League Two game. I wouldn't open my curtains if there was an EFL League Two game taking place in my garden, which is how I'm sure most non-Scottish team supporting fans feel.

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

    At this exact moment in time, yes, but I'd say that Cedric and Moult would be in with a shout of making either team, and aside from the Randolph years under McCall I'd say that Carson would be in with a shout also. This has been a down year for sure, but just as easily as we found Moult and Cedric not that long ago, we could easily do the same this summer and kick on again.
