  1. To be fair that was his natural position. He was always about running with the ball on the wing, though he has matured into a very mobile central player. It was completely night and day when he came on for Lyons. No disrespect to the latter, though we got the ball moving quicker and more forward.
  2. Even an extra couple of thousand on the gate for our support even makes a huge difference. Last night was evident. Our stadium is small, though if we can attract 6k most weeks then it will give the board something to think about long term as that is close to our home end selling out.
  3. I said this after the game. Gave us that spark we needed and drove forward with the ball and made good use of it. McAallister was magnificent. In fact everything that came down that right hand side second half including the willingness of Paul McGinn to get so far forward paid off. Overall very good performance all round. I have every faith we will get on Saturday and hope that Accies slip.
  4. There must be something in the small print for purchase of season ticket. If not, it will most likely be in there for next season when we are playing our second season in the top flight. My thoughts are that it only covers all games up till before playoff. I would like to think however the club would reduce the price for any potential playoff to make it a complete sell out.
  5. No wonder the chairmans update has not been as frequent this year.
  6. It seems to me the chairman is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Releasing exact figures would have folk arguing too. As mentioned by another poster, you have to take different scenarios into situation in relation to money discussed. Since I pay Netflix on a monthly basis I might just go an chin then and ask them to release their accounts to the public domain since i'm subscribed to their service.
  7. I can understand the reasoning in terms of gaining extra income, though what frustrates me is that we are a family/community club and closing our family stand to home supporters for these games are almost alienating the fans of our future. These are the type of games our young fans would like to witness us compete in. Segregation is restricted at our stadium and I can totally understand that choices are limited of where to house an overspill due to the west stand fully allocated to our fans throughout the season. You then look at the flip side of it. To try and drum more young fans down to a match day we are in a position where we can offer 2 adults 20 kids tickets for selected games like St Johnstone on Saturday there, due to the amount of available seats in the family stand. If we can get more initiatives like this in place to attract new fans then great, it will help fill that family stand with paying customers, though it won't be an overnight process to see results.
  8. I just can't see it working for them. They have a very small hardcore number of supporters with the rest drifters and most likely interest in either side of the old firm. It would take a miracle to find the numbers to raise the proposed figure in that space of time. I can understand Rae's son not investing any more. They have been bankrolled for years with failure to move on to the next level. From what i remember hearing the Easdales wanted the debt written off before any potential investment/takeover at the time of their interest. Debt that was owed to the Rae family for Douglas' personal investment out his own pocket.
  9. I'm fairly sure prior to that tackle he struggled with niggles. From what I remember of him, very good player indeed.
  10. This was a concern I had over the HoF boards being in the family stand as they are not made of indestructible material.
  11. A pyro was let off in both ends behind the goals when Celtic scored their second goal, last time they visited. The more alarming of the two pyros, was the one in the official away end that landed yards away from Hladky. Reducing allocation will not remove the sectarianism or objects like above coming through the turnstiles, though it will at least contain the problem to smaller numbers. We are not taking a hit on the full family stand, if we return it to our own fans for the games vs both teams, as it will at very least, be half full of our own supporters.
  12. In recent years, Southampton spent 2 seasons in league 1, finishing runner up in their 2nd season and Leeds in spent 3 seasons in league 1 also finishing runners up in their last season. I see both of the above just as big a club as Sunderland, though they failed at first attempt promotion and failed to win the league in their final season. Not as easy as some may think.
  13. Cheers kevo. Wonder what state they are in now after the old firm fannies have been in the stand. Hopefully still intact, A lot of work went into those.
  14. I see that some poster on that forum, said that Morgan has no experience. I think he has had more of an experience in football for his age than a lot of the boys just coming through at Sunderland. He also has a league winners medal, regardless of what level we were playing a, that is more than the majority of that squad have won in their lifetime..
  15. A player i feel who has been very underrated. Great to have him back. He is playing for a contract away from Ibrox now and I would imagine we would be in a good position to hold on to him if he wants to stay in Scotland and if we wish to keep him on.
  16. The only really odd addition to the starting lineup for me was Kellerman. Every other player has been in and around the squad this turn of the year. I think that was only Kellermans second involvement in the squad since he returned in January. He possibly got injured at Celtic Park last time round. For me the players who have not had much game time: Corbu looked really decent and was a more than comfortable replacement for P McGinn Cooke did really well for us, for all the service he had. Hard to say if he has goals in him, though he works hard and did better out of the front two. Kellerman - I am not so sure he is cut out for this level. Just my opinion. The lineup could have worked more in our favour despite the drastic changes. I am sure Lennon didnt expect anything near the changes we made from the winning team on Saturday. We ALMOST had ourselves level with a couple of opportunities. It's however done now and we move on to Saturday.
  17. From what I believe the 75k included add-ons and was not all paid at once, so we haven't paid the whole 75k thus far. He's not getting a game the now at Kidderminster, not even on the bench, though possibly injured...again. If we can cut our ties with him before paying the full amount then that would be great as he is never going to develop playing at that level.
  18. I think in the short time he has been with us, he has justified taking a gamble on paying a fee for him if affordable, rather than Stubbs' flawed judgment on Heaton for a transfer fee.
  19. Hladky looks a magnificent find. Probably kept scorelines down by quite a bit on a few occasions, especially January/early Feb. Popescu has also been an unbelievable addition. Has everything you want in a defender. Would be nice to cap off his time with us, with a goal too. Could wee realistically sign him permanently season end when survival is confirmed? Flynn, has been like a new signing since the turn of the year. An absolute leader in the middle of the field and seems to have found his best position with a great form of consistency. Following the above 3, I would possibly add Baird and P McGinn to that. They have survived the big changes made in the last window and have added to the cause of our turnaround of form.
  20. I am sure it was around £150k, though that came from a romanian source at the time.
  21. I was of the belief that we only receive ONE sell-on fee, from when Hibs sold him. If we are to receive further sell-ons for future transfers, that would be tremendous, considering his stock has already risen down south.
  22. In his earlier years, Flynn was all about pace and on the wing. As the years have went on, he has developed more into a central player who can tackle, has an eye for a pass and can chip in going forward. He has been one of the main driving forces behind our recent turn of results. To get that winning goal on Saturday was very fitting for him. Take a bow Mr Flynn.
