  1. Yup that was him. There was about 10 mins to go when he did it and Ross County beat us 1-0.
  2. Carson played the full 90 mins.
  3. Don’t necessarily disagree with you but I realised today the English transfer window shuts early this year for some reason, 5pm on Thursday 8th August. So he won’t have too many leagues games (if any?) before then. 6 goals and a couple of assists in the Betfred should do it though!
  4. Don’t get me wrong, I’m gutted we’ve accepted an offer from them but your post is nonsense. We quite publicy rejected two offers last week - Barnsley and Celtic - and the announcent tonight says we’ve ‘rejected several 7-figure offers in recent weeks’, so we’ve clearly not accepted the first offer that’s come along.
  5. That’s me and 2 mates booked up for the Linfield game. Quite looking forward to a wee trip across the water.
  6. Maybe I should have been more clear, I meant QOTS/Berwick would be the good away days rather than EK. I fancy Airdrie or EK we that would give us a local tie against a rival or team we have never faced. Wonder if Darren O’Dea would play if we drew EK!
  7. I think I’m right in saying as top seeds we will be at home to the 2nd seeds so that rules out away days to Ayr, Morton, Patrick and 1 other depending on where they draw the north/south divide. For the unseeded teams QOTS, Berwick and Airdrie/East Kilbride would be decent with potential for a good day out.
  8. For me, Robinson has done an excellent job. I think it’s easy to forget he’s a young and relatively inexperienced manager himself so will still be learning and developing but in his 2.5 years with us he has; saved us from relegation, taken us to 7th and both cup finals, and now an 8th placed finish with our highest points total since McCall’s tenure. That’s the on the pitch stuff, off the pitch he has dealt with our transfer to fan ownership, reducing budgets and brought in serious cash for Kipre, Hastie others to follow. He identified that the first half of last season was a shambles and managed to instil an entirely different style and philosophy on the squad in the space of 4-6 weeks which has taken us to the 3rd best points total in 2019 and seen the emergence of one of the best ever we’ve seen in years, who’s transfer will likely see the club becoming debt free. Sign him up Burrows!

    2019-20 Rebuild

    On the Continent is fantastic. The depth of knowledge that James Horncastle and Andy Brassell have is frightening, and they’re both excellent at putting it across in a really enjoyable way, it’s not dry at all. Jonathan Wilson is on this weeks show, who I don’t like as much, seems a bit of a weirdo. I’ve given At The Match a couple of go’s now and just can’t get into it. Not sure what it is. To be fair it’s only the first two episodes I listened to so maybe it’s improved.
  10. Finishing off against St J and Livi means it’s fairly unlikely we’ll be directly involved in sending anyone down or consigning them to the playoffs which is a bit unfortunate.
  11. Definitely Alex Rodriguez Gorrin. Good all round midfield performance with some composure in amongst his tackling and ball winning. The number of tackles and interceptions he made today was ridiculous.
  12. Echo the comments of others that it was a pretty scrappy game but to go to rugby park and come away with a hard fought point isn’t to be sniffed at. Shout out to Ally Gorrin who was absolutely brilliant in midfield.
  13. I’m sure I read that Euan Murray ended up playing somewhere mental for a short while, an island in the South Pacific or something like that. Edit : A quick wiki search shows 5 appearances and 1 goal for Western United of the Solomon Islands.
  14. Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s correct. I remember reading an interview with Craig Gordon where he talked about this. After his years of injury problems he had to make a decision between calling it a day and securing a big pay out or taking the contract at Celtic and foregoing any large payout if he broke down again with the same (knee?) injury. Obviously it’s worked out in his case but must be a tough decision for a player to make.
  15. I think there was 8 assists to go with those 9 goals as well. If it wasn’t for injury he’d definitely have finished our top scorer last season. He’d be a useful player for the current system so here’s hoping he can recapture some of that ‘hype’ when for again.
  16. Agree. If Aldred’s Bury contract is up in the summer we should be trying to get him signed to a pre-contract as soon as possible. I wouldn’t be surprised if the likes of Hibs or Killie were keeping tabs.
  17. As a few other have said, a mid-week game in freezing conditions with the added fact its the week before pay day in January which has likely been a 5-week month for most folk if they were paid early before Christmas. If we have less than 3,500 at our next few home games then it’s a valid point and certainly something the board should take into consideration. Was this season not the highest ST sales for a good few years too though (could be wrong) ?
  18. Couldn’t have put it any better. Absolutely spot on. If anyone thinks Robinson is getting binned any time soon, they will be sorely disappointed. Particularly as if Las goes as well it’ll be Aileen Anderson taking the team until a replacement is found! Hes doing everything asked of him by the board, whether you or I like the style he’s doing it in doesn’t really come in to it until fans start to leave in their droves of which there’s no evidence of. The County game and the post match interview were a car crash, no doubt, bu from his recent interviews and signings he’s clearly aware he needs to change it. Having been set up to play a certain way (and been fairly successful at it) for the last 2 years, it might take a bit longer than a couple of training sessions in Tenerife for it to work.
  19. Hope not. Not good enough defensively to be a left back and not any better than Frear as a winger. Would much rather give Adam Livingstone a run of games.
