  1. Can ony say that Abroath not having a chance to play off against St Johnstone without all these playoffs is a complete travesty. This whole 3rd and 4th place having a chance to move leagues just puts me right off football. What a shambles this all is. We never deserved a chance. You should go up on football merit only.
  2. It was a choice of dinner out with the family or catch the game tonight. I think I know why I have only attended one match this season as I really enjoyed my dinner. Stuck the tv on record and have just finished watching the live highlights. Both teams played heedies and kicks and not one player who you would get out of your bed to watch on both teams. Really fed up watching journeyman pros who cant put their foot on the ball and just wish for one player again with a bit of flair and swagger. Normally a team has a star player but I am struggling to think of our last... Kris? Totally indifferent to the result on Friday. Who wants to go up to the Premier league watching this crap. It will be just too painful to endure. I hope Arbroath go up. We need to reset.
  3. Get in there Jags. What are Arbroath all about? Although its the Jags I want top I cant get that wee smile off my face for there success and how it might feel to be one on there lifelong fans. When would be that last time they rode so high? Jags to win the league and Arbroath second would be alright with me.
  4. Link sent to family for Chrissy pressie
  5. Red Card to whomever turned on the sprinklers at half time and then gave our players boots without studs. You'd have thought they were on an ice rink in the second half. Too many useless crosses into the box from the 18 yard area when the simple thing that causes goal threat is too charge quickly to the by-line and cross from there before defenders can get set and our attackers and on the front foot. And can anyone explain the tactic when our goalie takes a by-kick were all 20 outfield players cuddle up in front of the dugout's. With the world of instant wifi communication McCall needs to get himself in the main stand and see the game from the tactical perspective of height. Instructions for subs and on field bolloking can be done by assistant staff. Maybe someone will tell me that the rules state the manager must be in the dugout but I can't imagine they do. PS We wurnae very good
  6. Great start to the season Jags. Flying out the traps FT 3-0
  7. Unfortunately a late goal for killy
  8. I started a thread many years ago on Summer football and was universally slaughtered. I used to argue with all the boys on the Thistle bus in the 90s about it and got the same weird is he having a laugh looks. But just like Electric cars and Wind turbines everything has its day. If the lower leagues have now been stalled once again, what better time to advocate a move to this Summer to finish the season and get watching football in t-shirt weather. Halleujah.
  9. Just saw that Chorley FC beat Derby in the FA cup and had a look at their website. My eye was drawn to an advert for there own Lager made by a wee local brewer. called Hops and shots. Would really like a Jags version. Anyone any contacts with Brewdog? https://hopsandshots.co.uk/magpipa-black-ipa-case-x6-chorley-football-club/ Would be an excellent Christmas gift for all my OF relatives
  10. Things gone from Fitba.... Maradona, Tommy Docherty and Jim McClean. Probably a few more I am forgetting. 1.Being allowed a can of Tennants on the supporters bus and their being more than three supporters buses. 2.No grass on our pitch by November except in the four corners 3.Players with a bit of character like Chico
  11. Agree the game should start early at 12.00 but think we should have used USH as and advantage and took the £6000 hit. Favour fortunes the bold and if we could have had that one more game last year we might have not been in this league. Is there not a two week gap until our next game which would give all teams and chance to rest injuries. I have also been looking at some weather sites and there is some forecasting for another "Beast from the East" mid January so again I think with a win today the adavantage gained may have been an opportunity lost.........Edited to catch up...Summer Football my bestest top choice
