    Free week

    Believe they are playing Arbroath this week.
  2. I see Jeanfield have at least two buses running to Coldstream. They could carry a bigger away support than we will to some games this season!
  3. I just don't want to hear any sort of justification of a 7-0 defeat. I disagree that Celtic would have handed out a similar beating to several other clubs. Of course they played well but we were atrocious and that should be pointed out. In fact, I think all the players that started disgraced themselves and should be embarrassed this morning. Not once, not twice but three times we let Christie have a free pop at goal and Griffiths' strike was the same. That is criminal. We didn't lay a glove on them unless it was a sly kick or elbow. We stood off them all day. So, so poor and folk should be venting their anger.
  4. Very fair point and that is a whole new argument, a discussion I was having on the way home yesterday. Can anyone come up with a single name that would justify us sacking our most successful ever manager? Other than Barry Ferguson, obviously.
  5. I'll be far more worried/annoyed if someone cuts off my feet as opposed to my hands. You are trying to tell folk who spent their day watching that yesterday that it wasn't that bad because... Do you think anyone wants to hear that when we've sat through such a defeat?
  6. Imagine expecting us not to record our heaviest ever defeat to Celtic. What a bunch of dreamers... Yesterday was unacceptable. Nobody should be defending it, excusing it or brushing it off. And it wasn't even a one-off, they did the same to us less than a year ago. Obviously a lot of lessons picked up from that mauling...
  7. I'm going to do something very dangerous and mention politics. The argument from those negotiating Brexit is they need to have no deal on the table to get a (good) deal. Equally, I don't think it helps us to talk about TW having a free hit effectively. He should feel under a bit of pressure. He has taken the conscious choice to shake up this squad so will have to live or die by that decision. Where we are now isn't a result of bad fortune that the manager has earned the right to remedy, he has put us in this position. We've had bad runs in the past and the club (absolutely correctly) haven't wavered in their support of him. This feels different though. What isn't acceptable is the language used at times. Whatever happens with TW, the respect for him should never diminish. And as for those that actively seem to be willing him to fail? What a miserable existence.
  8. Not for the first time in 2019, that wasn't good enough, which is clearly stating the obvious. No one that started came close to an acceptable standard. Ali McCann came on with nothing to lose and at least made himself noticeable. Make no mistake, Tommy Wright is in trouble here. Not in terms of imminent danger to his job but this squad he's assembled is well short and just a striker might not cut it. He doesn't want Anderson, is trying to force McMillan out and suspect his patience with Callachan might have run out at half-time. But we need more numbers not less and just how much business can you do at this stage without looking a bit desperate?
  9. Crowd was definitely down on normal, they had us all boxed in the front section. Maybe our form and the fact it was a party for them played a part but the price must have as well. If you take out players' families and day trippers (that is in no way an insult BTW), you are looking at not even filling a bus of regular away supporters IMO.
  10. Those two went on loan to the seaside leagues for a year, then a full season in the Championship (where they both did very well) before coming into the reckoning. McCann and McClean spent a few months at part-time clubs. There is a clear difference.

    Betfred Cup

    Pretty much agree with that, although think Kane would also benefit from the weight of expectation off his shoulders. And I think we'll get just one striker. So if they don't click then we are in trouble.
  12. Cummings played and scored for Forest at Mansfield last night.
  13. We'll see but I'd be surprised if O'Reilly, Munro and Hamilton don't play for their loan clubs in this competition.
  14. The rules last season were U21s plus two overage players. Depending on who plays at Celtic Park, you are looking at potential involvement for, I assume, anyone born in 1998 or later. That's Duffy, McCann and McClean from the first team squad. Hendry just misses out but could play as one of the aforementioned overagers obviously. Then from the reserves, Sinclair, Wills, Struthers, Ballantyne and Northcott aren't out on loan yet. Not sure there are any more in that group? The rest will be U18s.
  15. I've only been on two of the trips as well, Luzern and also Vaasa in 1999. Both incredible experiences and, as said, we were about as lucky as you could be in getting to visit somewhere as beautiful as Lucerne. The scenes when MacLean scored and then the buses back into town after the game were memorable. Finland really was a step into the unknown (although scary now that was 28 years after last playing in Europe and we are now 20 years since the Clark campaign) but again, incredible memories. Only a couple of hundred Saints fans but the centre of the town - and O'Malley's bar - seemed to be taken over by blue and white.
