  1. Reckon he's one who will go on to great things. I mean, when you see players like Greelish playing for Engerrrrland, you have to wonder what Danny's future will look like, he's got the making of a top top player. BTW, shouldn't Greelish be playing for ROI with a name like that!!!

    Fair summing up.

    No failures.

    Declan Gallagher will sign for EPL team for millions. Wish Tommy had got him.

    Love the emotion of the players. We have years of players withdrawing. These guys won't.

    Still think we should have signed Dykes after we played QoS.

    Dykes is a machine. Destined for ECL team IMHO

    Tansers was put into post by keeper,decent save,Conways squirmed unbelievably in after keeper parried it,Mays was saved 

    May's was a decent penalty, struck with some pace - absolutely wellied it. Their GK played a blinder, the save on to the post outstanding. Thought Zander's tip on to the bar was near brilliance....

     

    As for the one that swerved back in.... real blooper/

    You have singled Brechin out. 

    They got as "lucky" as Hamilton, QOS and Forfar, yet you're not claiming some conspiracy saved their place in their divisions.

    As for Brora, again, they weren't even guaranteed a shot at Brechin (if the play offs were played they'd have to have beaten Kelty first), so it's bizarre you're claiming they were almost guaranteed promotion.

    Keep on Random, keep on.

    Brechin were in the postition, i never singled them out, that's a fact - they were in the play offs, they'd have met a winning team in the lower league and on the showing we saw the other day, they'd have lost.

    Their chairman had a vote on the board of the league, to determine how things would play out.

    Nothing against Brechin - you seem to have a soft spot for them so maybe you are glad they got a bye.

    The other teams you mentioned were in divisions not bottom of the pile on the cusp of mostly likely going out of the league.

    They weren't "demoted" because they weren't in an automatic relegation spot.

    No team in a play off spot when the season was ended had to play in the play offs, so absolutely no idea why you've singled out Brechin.

    Brechin got lucky, and in part the influence their chairman had on how the leagues were decided. 

    Not singling out anyone, They were where they were....and got off the hook of playing Brora who i reckon would have tonked them.

    They weren't demoted or faced with the prospect because their chairman was on the SPFL board.

    Brora Rangers might also disagree with you https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/sport/football/spfl/2201615/brora-rangers-boss-steven-mackay-questions-brechin-city-being-spared-relegation-as-hearts-partick-thistle-and-stranraer-face-the-drop-after-spfl-vote/

    They were promoted to the Championship (they’ve only had two relegations) as a bit of a fluke, stretched themselves to compete there, got relegated without winning a game, lost their whole team, and it has spiralled. At times, they have been almost literally a pub team as they struggled to find players, It would have been better for them to have dropped out & rebuilt in non-league. Shame, because they are a decent club.

    But they weren't demoted, quite likely on account of their chaiman also being on the SPFL board!

    Really good comments then I realised who we were playing. Pity we cannot turn in this performance against Premier league opposition. If this is a stepping stone I am happy. If this is the only level of opponents we can beat then I am not

     

    But keeping things in perspective on here is not allowed, let's all get pissed ....we beat Brechin by 7 in league cup round robin............Brechin who by all rights ought to be a non league team.

    But don't say any of this, talk about "confidence" which I'd call delusion.

    Confidence comes from doing something tough. Complacency comes from having it easy.

    Nice braggable scoreline, otherwise, we are still bottom of the league.


  9. Why do we need five subs, is this Ice hockey?

    Basically, didn't watch the game, didn't expect anything, but no at all surprised to lose in the 90th minute.

    Someone said it on here many years ago: You play the OF you will mostly come away feeling cheated.

    Today no different.

    I suspect we may already have had this issue, hence having to wear last season's away when we went to Killie?

    Personally I'd like to see a complete ban on us playing in yellow away kits for at least the next 50 years. I am so, so bored of them.

    Agreed, if anyone from the club had any sense, they would a) read this forum b) understand that RED was an amazing away kit in our first season at McD, and they should have had it to mark 30 years in the ground......


  11. Happy Birthday to Ray Stewart who will turn 61 today. Ray played ten times for Scotland all as a West Ham player, initially under Jock Stein and was hopeful of getting to the 1982 World Cup. He was apparently on the list of 24 of possible players for Spain '82 but he and Tommy Burns were left behind. Ray blames it on being sent off at Hampden in April of that year in an Under-21 match against England. He was sent off for fighting with Mark Hateley in the last minute of the match. Ray scored one goal for Scotland against Northern Ireland in a 2-0 win at Hampden in the Home Internationals of May 1981. Ray's proudest moment with Scotland was apparently the 1-0 victory over England at Wembley in 1981.

  12. Uefa last week outlined principles for scenarios where Covid-19 impacted fixtures, stating that a game would go ahead as long as a team had at least 13 players available, including a goalkeeper.
