  1. That was the mistake then. Did he make good saves during the game?

    Couple of good ones in second half. Point being whilst he may have been at fault for second goal just prior to that he clearly shouted for defenders to leave the ball.

    Heard guys in the toilet slating him - feel a bit sorry for him actually.

    Not seen the Gallagher ‘handball’ back yet on TV. Game was done after that!!

  2. We’ve got to give the guy a chance as he’s literally just in the door.

    Initial observations are that he has that electric turn of pace, does appear to head straight for goal regardless if there are better options (yesterday there was an easy lay off to Grieve for a possible goal).

    I do see similarities in playing style as Morais.

    Hopefully turns out to be a good signing.

  3. A special mention for Richard Tait - he showed surprising ball control to lay on the third goal - almost Joyan Cruyffish in execution!

    That was a piece of magic from Tait, I sit in M7 and had a great view, his take down was immense then to turn the defender inside out for a very nice goal to follow was a joy to see!!

  4. Was watching him prior to kick off, seems a real team player with bags of confidence, played well today bearing in mind he’s literally just landed in the country.

    Seems to have quick speed of thought too - there was a moment in the second half when he just pulled out of going for the ball, had he done so would have been a guaranteed yellow (possibly more).

    Very early days but this guy might turn into a bit of a fans favourite.

  5. Me and the boy definitely would have went, however I cannot and will not pay £20.00 for the 2 of us to go to what is now a meaningless game!!

    Well I’ve buckled and just bought our tickets, convincing myself it will be worth it - perhaps I’ll see Dylan Reid & Keanu Baccus on the park.

  6. I read, or heard, elsewhere it's going to be released at the end of the month. 

    Goodness me - I was getting all excited, wonder if there’s an issue as normally both kits are released simultaneously, TBH I was holding back on buying my boy the home kit (as I hate the shorts) until I saw the away kit, if you’re right regarding the timing that is super late….

  7. Well I understand that our new away strip is out tomorrow- I truly hope it’s a belter (a classic), if so I’ll be down to the shop toot sweet to buy one for the boy.

    Does anyone in the know able to advise what it might look like in advance???

  8. Having seen it worn in the game against Northampton Town I think that I agree with you but it might grow on me.

    I have to say I think the red stripe on the white shorts really looks out of place and consequently ruins the strip.

    I personally think the white shorts and socks would have grown on me, however that red stripe is bloody awful, why not just make it black - there was already enough nice flashes of red on the top?

    So far as my 12 year old son goes - I’m hoping for a better away strip!!

  9. Just checked this myself, I have barcode only for season ticket with barcode and QR code for Arbroath game.

    I do understand something will get sent out (season ticket wise) before season starts.

    Starting to wonder if we’ll get in tomorrow??

  10. Will be heading off soon. You do have to wonder when the computer sets the fixtures who signed off on the 12 noon kick off? For the sake of the travelling fan could they not have kicked the games off at 2pm - there were no trains as such, therefore it’s either a hotel or an early Sunday start.

    However when we leave Aberdeen with our 2-1 victory none of this will no longer matter to me!

  11. The mob I work for (large Aberdeen based Oil & Gas services provider) introduced TOIL where you accrue enough time over a set period to take the time off (again within a set period). The big problem is they are so busy there is almost the feeling of ‘guilt’ when taking your earned TOIL time off and as such you don’t really enjoy it and furthermore have a mountain of work to come back to.

    My own thoughts on these things are they sound great, are great to get people recruited in through the door but the reality is it’s just not practical.

    Maybe I’m just getting cynical in my old age but I generally just don’t companies any more!!

  12. Really had to laugh yesterday, I sit in M7 and even before I took my seat I realised there were lots of new faces (Rangers Fans), funnier even was the two strong northern Irish accents querying which pie to buy at the catering then looking at their tickets to navigate to their seats

    It got even better when my son saw his Rangers supporting friend from his running club. In fairness I never spotted one bit of bother inside and outside of the stadium yesterday.

    There was never 6,500 in our stadium yesterday!!

  13. Got to say that was probably one my best saints games (atmosphere wise), I truly thought it was going to be our night, whilst we may have given Hearts a bit of a ‘bloody nose’ we fell short on the night.

    Cannot fault us for effort but a few observations as follows:-

    1) unless injured why did we take Gogic off - I thought he was immense. We would be doing well if we could get him for next season.

    2) Some very lucky team is going to get Connor Ronan next year - wish the boy all the luck in the world - he’s been brilliant for us - I must have watched that strike about 100 times since - an absolute cannon of a strike. First senior cap beckons surely?

    3) Hearts a bit lucky with first and third goals, we could maybe have done more for the third (and fourth). Was tiredness after Wednesday a factor?

    4) Our support - phenomenal. Don’t know if it was the Saturday night, the lights, the stadium but what a backing the team was given.

    Let’s hope our season doesn’t fizzle out - so much to play for and be positive about.

  14. Maloney was on the radio saying Hibs should have won 4 or 5 one. Is that a tad defensive

    He must have been taking drugs today - apart from their wee spell at the start of the second half we were the better team.

    We were so close with Greive sliding in at the far post for 2 nil.

    Oh and the booing from the home fans - that’s what he should be focusing on!!

  15. Hard to see us scoring more than the one goal so 1-1 would do me which would continue our wee run of form and keep the posts from [mention=13994]TopCat[/mention] coming.

    Aye - this will be tough today - particularly getting the ball in the net IMO - the Hibees are hardly on fire to be fair but with the game on their patch they will want and need the win.

    I do wonder if our tactics may get tweaked to try to get goals from midfield (easier said than done I know) due to our striker scenario.

    Main/Erwin starting up front on their own?

  16. Anyone know where's best to park(free) near to the ground? Its been years since ive drove to Easter Rd so i'm out of touch. 
     

    Appreciate its not free but I used an app called just park and got a space for £8.00 for 4 hours, I wouldn’t normally have done this but understand tomorrow to be bucketing with rain and didn’t want the hassle of getting drenched pre match.
