  1. Lo and behold, we are both out the cup. Could have played this on a Saturday afternoon in spring, instead we are playing it on a winters Wednesday.
  2. Oh yeah he got loads of stick from the north bank. We had a song for Kenny McLean and various other boo boy favourites too 😁I was a big fan of Dorman, but i think he's more popular now than he was when he actually played with us.
  3. Interesting to see the revitalisation of Dorman in our support over the last couple of years. I liked him a lot, but goodness me he was a big target for our boo-boys back in the day. I suppose he was a rare luxury player in the usual pragmatism of Gus' newly promoted teams. Would float around doing not very much for 90 minutes, apart from scoring a worldly that won us the game.
  4. I think we will take over 1,000, magic of the cup and all that. Hope we can at least make a game of it, but I suspect we will be 2+ down by half time.
  5. Then you run the risk of other games being postponed and ending up with a congested fixture list immediately pre-split. Not many games are postponed beyond March, and pretty much every midweek is free. Wednesday 22nd February is free, Wednesday 1st of March is free etc etc. In the unlikely event of a league game after the cup game being postponed, there would have been no fixture pile up.
  6. To be fair, two of our last three goals came directly from set pieces...But i do agree it's something we've struggled with all season.
  7. No chance they will rearrange with four days notice. Like every match, it'd be much better for both sets of fans to have it played on a Saturday afternoon. All they had to do was wait till Monday when they'd have had their pick of pretty much every mid week in the next two months if one team got through at the weekend.
  8. I do agree, Gogic is essentially keeping Gallagher out the team at centre half just now. Madness, does anyone think Alex is a better defender than Dec? I bet Gogic himself doesn't even think that.
  9. RIP Billy Not many players get Scotland caps while playing for St Mirren, he did. Must have been a top keeper.
  10. I don't get why they didn't wait till after the Scottish Cup games this weekend before rearranging this. If we both go out at the weekend - which is not unlikely - we could have played this on Saturday 11th March, quarter final weekend. If one of us got through there's plenty of other free midweeks between now and the split.
  11. It was a fairly similar game as the one Dundee. In the sense we huffed and puffed without really creating a clear cut chance or testing their keeper for the whole match. The only difference was that Hibs have better players than Dundee and punished us accordingly. I actually thought we went downhill rapidly when Grieve went off for Watt. Grieve wasn't playing well in an attacking sense, but what he was doing was buzzing around the Hibs back line and putting them under pressure so they couldn't play out from the back. Watt doesn't do that kind of hard work, and the Hibs goal came from them picking up one of our many hoofed long balls, playing it out from the back, and isolating Youan against Fraser.
  12. Superb player and will be a stand out in League 1 in England. Won't be long till he's playing in the Championship and I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up in the lower end of the EPL.
  13. Yeah been a cracking signing. Was carrying an injury for much of last season but I still felt the treatment he got from the boo boys was OTT and he had a few decent performances. He's fully fit now and getting a run in the team and it's paying dividends. Before the Motherwell game he had three goals all season, he's doubled that tally in the last two games. If he can add goals to his game he won't be with us much longer.
  14. This will either go brilliantly and he will end the season as our top scorer. Or he will completely flop and not score once. I feel there will be no middle ground somehow...
  15. He was our last double figures in a season striker
  16. Murray will never make the second week of a slam again, never mind win one.

  18. Is it really hundreds of thousands on an upgrade? man alive. How many hundreds of thousands?
  19. We've had plenty of draws up there over the years. Indeed we have got draws up there in three of the last four seasons, the only season we got nothing since promotion was the curtailed COVID season where we only played there once. A draw would be a great result here of course. Wins have been much harder to come by. The only one this century was the 0-1 in 2011 with a Gareth Wardlaw scored a bicycle kick to keep us in the league. Although we did win a penalty shoot out at Pittodrie on way to league cup glory in 2012.
  20. When did I say you said I had said something factually correct? We've agreed with each other throughout. You've argued with yourself when you made up that I said crowds weren't good, but apart from that 🤷‍♂️
  21. Who'd have thought such an obvious statement such as 'Covid had an impact on crowds' would have led us down this bizarre path 😆
  22. I don't see that as pedantic at all. A more relevant comparison would have been the last season with no COVID impact at all, which was 2018/2019, which i'm sure would show an increase and be a much more relevant comparison. The only negativity here is coming from you 😁 If you're going to argue with stuff I didn't say then you'd be aswell arguing with yourself... All you've done over the last few posts is agree with me 🤏
  23. So, we agree with each other that COVID has been a factor over the last three seasons, good. What you've done here is invent me saying something that I haven't said, and argued with that. I never once said the crowds weren't good. I simply said comparing that comparing it with the COVID seasons wasn't a relevant comparison.
