  1. Utterly piss poor performance today. Seemed to be unable to keep any momentum going to our game, we were, as we have been so far this season, far too slow in playing forward, some of the squad seem clueless as to what to do when they have the ball (similar to DUFC's Infamous Walter Rojas) and out defence is to slow to react to opponents attacking play, as well as that the officiating was beyond shite, the left side linesman had no idea what he was doing and as per usual Beaton was his usual- enough said. We seriously need the squad to get a boot up the arse and start getting goals
  2. Hope the game is entertaining, as past few matches we've had have felt a bit 'flat', Think it will be a 1 each although I'm hoping/praying we get a better result and we could really do with 3 points. Also, I haven't been to Fir Park in quite a while(2002) Can anyone recommend any saints/away fan friendly boozers near Fir Park, Internet reviews I've seen are all pretty out of date and I've been told the Fir Park social club, is shut down. Would be grateful for any recommendations. COYS
  3. I agree it's not panic stations YET but getting beaten by a non league team (no disrespect to them) when we are in the top flight--via the great escape, today's result doesn't sit well or bode well for our chances if some good quality signings arent made and pronto!
  4. What's the warning tag for? 'Caution- if worn, you will be wearing a top that makes you look like a Germanic leg slapper-minus the feather adorned hat) How the hell can we- and Joma, go wrong with a simple design objective--Black and White stripes, front and back, red numbers and letters--see 2012/13 home top for inspiration
  5. He's gone and was no need for GLS to indulge in petty 'he said we said' crap. Would have been better to keep it to 'he went and best of luck to the guy'. Think we need a properly versed spokesman(person) as we have made ourselves look like tits a few times with, as it seems, off the cuff or falling out comment's.
  6. Sorry to say it, but both kits are shite. Was hoping we would get our stripe back, but instead got yet another piss poor effort that must have taken the design department at Joma all of 3 seconds to come up with- and they have forgotten about the back of the home shirt
  7. Having Nike or Adidas or someone like that doesn't guarantee better quality, but likely to command a higher price. Most of Newcastle United's Puma tops have been iffy quality wise- and a big gripe for a lot of their fans is the club crest is a colour faded, cheap looking patch. I personally liked the Humel tops we had a few years back and the 2013 Home top was a belter. If suggesting another kit supplier, couldn't the club approach Canterbury. Have used there kit when played rugby and always seemed good quality and durable
  8. Playing for a draw(poorly IMO) and lost. Have tried to stay positive but have no hope we will stay up and think we need a total clear out of dugout team as has been a disaster- we have Been patient, kept the faith but been rewarded with weak, inept performances week after week. I'm sorry to say it but enough is enough
  9. That's for another thread. Refs now can't officiate for fcuking toffee, but it's not just the preserve of Scottish fitba, seen a load of English games with shite referees- but how some of these chinless wonders get a FIFA badge is anyone's guess. Must be an offer when you send in 10 coupons from boxes of Coco pops
  10. I'm not jumping on the 'sack the manager' bandwagon BUT with would ask the question to the supports who believe OK will turn it around, will come good etc- how long do we give for this to happen. It seems that OK and the rest of the (experienced) coaching team cannot buy us a win. I also believe that if a manager and/or team believe they will lose a game, they will somehow find a way for that to happen- which in itself raises questions,but for OK to openly state we are underdogs was a very poor error of judgement and not one that will win him much favour with at least of fair part of support. So what is next for us? Answers on a postcard please
  11. Ok seems a likeable, nice guy who did well across the water but for us it's not working with him. My main issue is we keep sticking with the same game plan and inherently end up with the same results. He also has JN & Gus there but their presence hasn't helped. Also, if I remember correctly, we signed OK on a 4 year deal(which I found surprising after doing the same with Stubbs) so even if we do decide to part company, we will have yet another manager who needs the their contract paid, and who will take over? Gus or Jimmy I'm sure. I'm praying that something-anything happens to give the entire team a kick in the arse and we at least get a playoff spot but realistically, looks unlikely we will be anywhere near enough for that.
  12. We played that well we got our arsed well and truly kicked. If the defence played ok I'd have been optimistic, but could see the fractures even before half time. The defense was shocking and passing, clearing the ball and general awareness were all well below par. Have been trying to keep the faith, remain positive and hope for improvement but not seeing much to keep my optimism. I really hope that we are on the cusp of a big improvement- but only time will tell
  13. I'm not at the game, but from what I can see on the coverage, this performance ranks among the worst I've seen this season. The defence is inept and close to pointless, we can pass to save ourselves and the few chances we have had, have been squandered. If we keep this up, I doubt we could get another win this season and relegation seems almost a certainty. Now it's time for a dram
  14. Personally I don't like artificial pitch surfaces, have played on a few(mainly through playing rugby) and always felt better playing on proper turf and grass pitch- I do think we will eventually need to look at synthetic/hybrid surfaces(as most clubs will) but feel that they aren't quite at the stage of being a real alternative to real grass surfaces. Anyone care to lambast my views or just disagree?
  15. Well, working hard does have the disadvantage of not being able to commit to being a keyboard warrior full time. Love the fact that you've taken the time to take issue with the timing of my post. The secret bastard child of Sutton- perhaps?
  16. The fact of the matter is Sutton is an ex player, now nobody,who only does what he does (talk shite and try to get folk wound up) to try and project some self importance. A twat he is but not worthy of any second thought.
  17. Was he pushed or did he jump, no mention of the nature of the 'parting company'. At least it wasn't a 'conscious uncoupling' like the twat who whines with Coldplay and gwyneth paltrow, mother of their fruit inspired weans
  18. No, directors of football is a bit of a nonsense IMHO, Someone to manage a manager and/or take over the football 'operation'. A managers job is what it says on the tin, to manage the team, players, tactics, transfers(obviously with approval from the BOD for budget). It also means another wage to pay, and like has happened in a number of clubs where a director of football has been present, there seems to be a lot of disharmony- too many cooks as they say
  19. I agree but sometimes our bums start to squeak a bit prematurely, think we can all give a judgement on AS after the window closes and we see who we have. I was always realistic about how we would do this season but also believe we need to give ourselves an aiming point, and if we do better than that then happy days.
  20. I wouldn't say the writing is on the wall YET but it isn't looking good so far. I also remember that there was an outcry from some after the appointment of Jack Ross, after his work at Alloa hadn't went that well, and to start off we still weren't winning games and a lot of forum posters called for him to be given the shove- I will openly admit I was a doubting Thomas, but was proved wrong(thankfully). I think we need to see if we can get a few decent faces in while the transfer window is open and see if we start getting the results we need. And just on the contract offered to AS, I think 3 years is insane especially in this day and age when results are critical. I would have given a one year initial then a further 1 or 2 year contract dependant on performance, with certain criteria that need to be met
  21. Seen some highlights of the game against Aberdeen and he was a bit iffy, although our inept defending didn't help, and during the Rangers game, I don't know why he came out miles away from his line when there was no hope he would get the ball. Sometimes we pulls amazing saves out of the hat, but feel he then sometimes gets really clumsy and gives away goals. Am I alone in thinking this or does anyone else see the same?
  22. I'd say so, to be honest any other revenue we can bring in would be welcome I'm sure
