  1. Fine player on his day, but never fulfilled his full potential due to injuries. I wish him all the best.
  2. Seems opinion is divided on Toyosi. But we are agreed that he has pace. Since that is something we've been looking for for quite some time (pretty much all of last season), let's just give the boy a chance to show what he can do. He doesn't need to be a prolific goalscorer, just someone who will cause problems for opposing defences. His pace might be just the thing for that.
  3. Quote: In what universe would you look forward to seeing Arbroath?? Although brought up in Paisley and a lifelong Buddies fan, I now live closer to Arbroath than Paisley. So I often go to watch Arbroath on Saturdays when I can't make it to Greenhill Road, and I enjoy watching the Lichties. Always been a stuffy, hard-to-beat team, but Dick Campbell has made a big difference to them in recent years and they really excelled last season of course. I was pleased to see them in Buddies' League Cup group. That game will be a good test of Buddies at the start of the season. I'm sure Arbroath will give them a good game, but I will certainly be supporting Buddies to come out on top.
  4. Would have preferred to get free entry to the Arbroath game on 9th July. Promises to be a tasty encounter. We should win, of course, but as we know as Buddies fans, things don't always go as they should.
  5. Anything other than a win and qualification is over for us, so.....C,mon Scotland!
  6. Surprised, but happy to have Ryan on board again. Has not let us down throughout his time with us. Suffered a serious injury but came back as good as ever. Always gives 100%. Looking forward to seeing him in our midfield again. COYS!!
  7. Alnwick off to Cardiff City, it seems. Anyone know where Connor McCarthy is going. I would have liked him to stay. As others have said, SR has his work cut out to find some decent players. A bit worried about the strikers. We seem stuck with Brophy and Main, neither of whom has been exactly prolific. But if they are in the squad along with Greive and Jamieson, there isn't really room to bring in another one. And we all know that's where our problem lay this season.
  8. No Shaughnessy, Main or Brophy. Surely a draw is the best we can get.
  9. After last night's results, we are better placed to finish the season above the Dons. Surely we can get a draw at Pittodrie against an Aberdeen team which is nose-diving!
  10. Thought we battled really well against a strong, physical Livi side. As has been said, the two forwards stuck at it and gave the Livi defence a tough time, though they lacked the quality to finish things off. Worried about Greive. He's just too slight to be fighting off big strong defenders. Was too easily pushed off the ball on many occasions last night. But to his credit he has a great heart, never stopped running and trying and might have got a goal in the second half. We will miss Gogic and Alnwick particularly, but we still have Kiltie who has found his place in the team. Also, I need to mention Ethan because I criticised him on Saturday. Thought he was much better last night, some important tackles and good passes. Sad to see Flynn's game end with a bad tackle forcing him off. Probably won't see him in Paisley again. He's been a great servant to the club, so I wish him all the best. Kevin Clancy? I'd better not start on him. Some very dodgy decisions.
  11. Oops, my mistake. Still fancy Dons to get the points though. We need to be right on it to get 3 points against Livi and set up an interesting game at Pittodrie on Sunday.
  12. With reference to the talk above about finishing above Livi, I agree that it looks unlikely. However, it would be nice to finish above Aberdeen for obvious reasons. Assuming the Dons get 3 points against Dundee tomorrow, we can finish above them if we beat Livi tomorrow and get at least a draw at Pittodrie on Sunday. Livi will be a tougher game than either of our last two but I think we can do it. So......COYS!!
  13. Decent performance against a Dundee team that looked beat after Adam's gift to us. Main looks transformed in the last two games. He gets my MotM for his goal and constant harrying of the Dundee defence. Is he trying for a new or extended contract? Also Gogic, Tait and Tanser were excellent, but can't agree about Erhahon. Apart from a couple of passes, thought he passed backwards more than forwards and even gave the ball away a couple of times. We still need a reliable scorer. That's now two games where we should have scored more goals. Still, shouldn't be greedy, I suppose. COYS!
  14. One man doesn't make a team but we are surely much better with Ronan than without him. Don't think we'll miss Jones so much. He's faded out of the picture after a good start.
