  1. Livingston v St Mirren 17th Feb

    Other teams are going to look at that and think that’s the way to play us... long balls, heavy tackles. Expect a bumpy ride over the next few games
  2. Good reply! English fitba is in a weird place. Revolving doors everywhere. I find it hard to enjoy the Premier League. You occasionally get a few characters - I liked watching Diego Costa, pure animal. But then they move on to another club... There’s no loyalty and no real evidence of passion - beside chasing titles/money. Even the Leicester story felt a bit false/boring, even though it was a huge achievement for the club. Clubs like Man City who buy enough players to field 2 title winning teams, never mind 1, are getting too big and too powerful. Achievement for a club like Barnsley seems to be to survive and hope for a cup run. Not sure I find it appealing. Think Scottish football is still “real” enough to get excited about, but it’s all heading in the wrong direction, imo.
  3. Do you enjoy supporting a club like that? Not a dig, genuinely curious. Not sure I'd like to support a club where they openly have no trust in a manager - the system just seems a bit.... empty...
  4. If a big club down South offer you a job, you're absolutely entitled to listen to that offer - then ask your own club to make you an offer to stay. I would do the same in his position. He knows the fans love him here, and he seems happy in the job. Think he will stay but on better terms. Hopefully this time we have some kind of compensation clause wrote into the deal for next time a club come knocking... (assuming you can do that for a manager..)

    Think the North Korea situation is more contained than we imagine, mutually assured destruction does that. The middle east would be far more of a shitstorm than it is right now if Clinton had got in. Did you read her emails about Libya/Iran etc on wikileaks? she's an absolute maniac. It's a bad day when Donald Trump is the lesser of 2 evils, but that's the world we live in

    Not overly bothered with Trump. I'm enjoying that the world is relatively calm. Doubt things would be as calm with Clinton in charge so from that pov it's been quite positive for the world, despite all the weird tweets etc
  7. St Mirren v QOS Sat 3rd Feb

    Think there will be a big crowd tomorrow. 4,500+ Not making a score prediction.... Don't feel confident about this one
  8. Dundee Utd v St Mirren, Friday 2nd March 2018

    Club should definitely lay on as many buses as we can fill. Notice they were selling bus tickets through SMFCtickets for games before, perhaps could set up something like that. Fiver a seat, club cover the rest. Would be a great advert for the club if we could pack the away end on live tv!
  9. Dundee Utd v St Mirren, Friday 2nd March 2018

    We had 778 fans in Dunfermline on Friday, 1,400 at the Saturday game. I'm sure if the club and supporters buses run a few extra, we'll still see big numbers at Dundee United. I'll guess we'll take over 1,000
  10. Dundee Utd v St Mirren, Friday 2nd March 2018

    Where's the need to moan? Most folk will still travel - we're probably getting decent money from BT. Glad they're showing it. Now lets pump them
  11. Dunfermline v Saints. (Friday 26/01/18)?

    Agree thought he was a bit ineffective until he moved inside. Good to have options now though!
  12. Dunfermline v Saints. (Friday 26/01/18)?

    We’re on our way were on our way to the premier league were on our way how we get there I don’t know how we get there I don’t care all I know is saint murns on our way (repeat till cannot speak)
  13. Dunfermline v Saints. (Friday 26/01/18)?

    There's a place called "Bar Kick" , with loads of screens for football. They'll no doubt have it on https://www.cafekick.co.uk/bar-kick/ Might be worth phoning ahead to make sure, but they usually show Scottish football when I've been down for work
  14. Dunfermline v Saints. (Friday 26/01/18)?

    Stelios posted something on instagram about remembering and learning, not forgetting. Great attitude, he knows he had a bad performance. I want him to start on Friday
  15. Minutes Applause

    Not so sure it's about grief culture, more showing respect. Off the top of my head we've had applauses for Tam McGarry against Morton, the young lad Connor McDowall at the Thistle game, David Murphy who died young at the United game.. All have been fitting, well observed and didn't disrupt anything
