  1. New Assistant Manager required

    Wait until you see Maybury in action on the side of the pitch then - a refereeing friend of mine said he is the worst he's ever encountered for arguing and shouting at the officials!
  2. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Yep, most of the Hearts fan I know reckoned he wasn't even good enough to have been in the Hearts team when he got called up for Scotland.
  3. Tommy Wright's position (title edited)

    Three at the back works well with the correct personnel. Unfortunately we don't have that available to us. Joe and Ando in particular, look completely lost in a back 3, whilst our wing backs are not good enough to provide the attacking width in this system either. My main concern is the complete lack of movement off the ball. We don't seem to work anywhere near as hard as the opposition do when we don't have the ball, both when attacking and defending. The number of times one of our players has the ball and there are absolutely no options for a pass available is criminal. Wtf are they doing in training all week?
  4. Scottish cup 4th round draw Monday 4.45

    It was absolutely pissing it down in Glasgow this morning for an hour or so. Drive through from Edinburgh was brutal. Be amazed if its not waterlogged after that rain, particularly with the snow melting as well over the past few days.
  5. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Jack Ruddy has just signed a 2 year contract extension at Wolves, so he's definitely not been told he can leave. Also, I thought McGrandles signed a 2 year deal at MK Dons in the summer, in which case he's not out of contract either.
  6. St.Johnstone v Aberdeen - 13th December

    It is down to the coaches, according to someone close to Zander who we spoke to after a recent match. Tommy supposedly wants his keeper to stay on the line and the defenders to attack and clear the crosses. That's working well.......... It's fine when you have a Frazer Wright, Duberry etc who will do this, but we've not got that kind of player just now. Seems madness to stop a guy who's 6'5, and has the advantage of being able to use his hands, come for a f**king cross.
  7. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I might be in the minority, but I thought Maksimov was far more impressive than Dorley in both legs. His movement off the ball, the use of his body to hold off defenders (and his finishing ability, obviously) was on a different level from any of our strikers. No chance we would be able to afford him though. I'd definitely take Dorley if we could afford a transfer fee for him, although I do think we have a greater need for both a proper striker and a left sided midfielder.
  8. Europa League 2017 - 18

    Yep, they're no mugs. They've got to the group stages twice in recent years. Them and BATE's performances in Europe recently have given the Belarusian League a higher country coefficient than Scotland.
  9. Europa League 2017 - 18

    No they're not. They are seeded in the 1st Qualifying Round and are playing the Faroese team we could've drawn. They finished 3rd in the Belarusian League last season, 2 points above the Minsk mob we played in 2013/14.
  10. Taking the bairn to the fitba

    From my experience, it's a lot easier to take them to a game when they are still unable to walk/run around. We took my son about 4 or 5 times when he was around 5-8 months old and it was fine. Just make sure you've got plenty of food and a pair of the ear protectors for him - it'll stop him getting a fright every time the crowd jumps up and cheers or shouts! The only issue is the lack of changing facilities at McD - fortunately the closest I got to changing a shitty nappy in the ground was in the boot of the car in the car park about 10 minutes before kick off! I had to take my son to a game when he was about 1 1/2 - 2 years old once - never again. He's now 3 1/2 and can almost manage a game - assuming he has a few toys and loads of food with him.
  11. MOTM Septic 4 - Saints 1 - 06/05/17

    Tricky one as no one really played well. Some schoolboy defending, overrun in midfield and not able to hold onto the ball up front. Thomson looked sharp for the first 5 mins he was on the pitch then disappeared. Gave it to Foster for a couple of decent tackles tracking back and his run and cross for the goal.
  12. Aberdeen vs Saint Johnstone Sat. 29th April

    Back in Edinburgh now. Shite game, great performance. I love this team. Now to try to persuade the missus to let me go to Parkhead next week!
  13. Alex Totten's Autobiography

    Aye, but he was a massive *** who had unfounded allegations made against him on social media, so he's seen as a d***. Whereas Totten. Oh wait.....
  14. MOTM Saints 1 - Hearts 0 - 05/04/17

    The whole team were excellent and put in a hell of a shift, closing down and winning pretty much every 50/50. Think I'll plump for Easton though.
  15. MOTM Ross County 1 - Saints 2 - 18/02/17

    Alston for me. Love seeing a player bursting forward from midfield like that. It was reminiscent of Harry Curran or Fizzy Scott with pace and no finishing ability!
