  1. John Sutton

    I'm aware. He's a master of twisting things.
  2. John Sutton

    And you have the cheek to have a pop at others for nonsensical comparisons...
  3. John Sutton

    Yes, I do rate him. He's raw and has plenty of potential.
  4. John Sutton

    You'll find very few taking exception to the opinion that Sutton is currently better than Stewart because most agree. What people will rightfully take exception to is your incorrect assertion that at 21, a player is as prolific as he's ever going to be, that Stewart has been largely ineffective, a lack of acceptance that his major contribution to the side so far has been to tire and harass defences and he's done so quite effectively and finally that you think it's fair to compare the career goals total of a 34 year old who has 15 years of experience under his belt to a 21 year old in his first full time gig and his 2nd full season as a senior footballer.

    Ross Stewart is potentially a very good player. That folk seem to have written him off after about half a dozen games where he's done more right than wrong is harsh. I agree that Sutton offers more at present but to try and compare the scoring records of a guy like Sutton with a lad who has little under 2 seasons of senior football under his belt is hugely unfair.
  6. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    Same. My two league games were at EEP and Cappielow as well. Fair to say I think a few of us reckon we're jinxing it away from home just now.
  7. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    Quite amazing that we're the only team to have beaten Livingston in the quarter and we did so away from home and playing with 10 men for over an hour.
  8. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    That'll do, Saints. That'll do.
  9. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    Falkirk and Caley aye. Utd in top 4 is probably about expectation, even though they've played poorly.
  10. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    This league is going to be mental. Never had Livi pinned as challengers.
  11. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    Time to hold our breath for no more goals. Though a goal for Brechin would be smashing.

    Being told 'Get over it' is probably the most harmful thing to tell someone going through any sort of difficulty. It's attitudes like that which prevent people going through any sort of issues from truly opening up about it for fear of being perceived as weak. I struggled physically as a result of a completely debilitating back injury I suffered at work that put my life on hold for 18 months before a specialist finally listened, diagnosed that a disc had been herniated in two places and decided surgery was the only option. The mental knock on of 18 months of chronic, unrelenting pain was profound and something I genuinely wouldn't wish on anyone. Through all of this, I was given little or no support in my work and told to 'get over it' by bosses and colleagues as I struggled to do an 8 hour shift of heavy manual labour at a time when I had trouble even standing up and couldn't take sick leave due to the fact that I was relatively new to the role. Yet I just plugged on in the mistaken belief that I'd get through it to the other side and it would all subside. This had a terrible effect on me physically, though it was only with hindsight that I realised how badly affected I was mentally. The attitude of those around me made me feel like a fraud and I wondered for so long if anything actually was wrong with me or I was just unable to physically hack the job and it was all in my head. A cocktail of painkillers, muscle relaxants, and restless nights was all I had for the majority of 2015 and half of 2016 until my surgery last May. I genuinely feel for anyone whose head isn't in a good place for whatever reason and like others, I hope it's a load of murmured shite in the case of big Gary. But if there is any truth at all in it, he will hopefully be back when he is ready.

    What exactly constitutes a 'real injury?' There's a few rumours - wholly unsubstantiated at this point I might add...bit they are definitely there - that Gary is having a bit of a hard time in a non-physical sense with one thing or another. Does this fall under the category of 'petted lip' or 'ripped tights'? In this day and age, I think it's fair enough that a club might help and be patient with a player rather than telling them to stop whining and get on with it. As I said, no foundation to this yet but we've all heard the mumblings so it's fair to address them. If this is the case then well done to the club for not rushing the guy back.
