  1. Tickets to see Pop will eat itself, supported by the Wonderstuff and Jesus Jones. Cracking gig
  2. Prior to the game last night I would have settled for not getting turned over and a bit of determination and shape. After that what can I say apart from "Thanks Oran, that was fantastic" if that what he can do after a week, we might actually be ok this season (no pun intended). If we can win the big games (Livingston, St Johnstone, Motherwell and Dundee, Kilmarnock) we should survive.
  3. Makella looked decent in his first game caught a bad injury and the rest is history.
  4. Or even Alex Rae who I have mentally unpersonned.
  5. Management is hard at the best of times, made harder by having to do it in public and be judged by 4000 people on the spot. When Jack was appointed, he initially benefitted from not being Tom**y C*aig in the same way that AS is hamstrung by not being Jack Ross. He deserves to be cut a bit of slack until it goes pear shaped. It might go bad or he may be pep Guardiola. We need to wait and see. Give it few monrhs, then assemble a lynch party if necessary. Hopefully we'll be fine. The premier was aLways going to be hard. Patience.
  6. This season could be one where should go to the football out of habit whereas last season was actually enjoyable ( an anomaly). This season will be grinding and very trying. Good luck Alan.
  7. Perhaps I'm in the ,minority here but I'm a touch worried with what Stubbs is doing. I know he has to build a squad to compete in the premier but he's letting some decent players go and replacing them with unknown quantities. I know we have to trust his judgement but it's all starting to look a bit chaotic. They might be brilliant but we still haven't had the chance to see them yet tonight could be interesting. But after last season Ross will be a hard act to follow.
  8. I was just thinking of Greenhill Road. I may be wrong but I think Ralston is a long lease. I think it has had issues but these are addressed and the cash outflow is significantly less than Greenhill Road requires. But I would need to see the numbers to be certain.
  9. The ton results have been an anomaly. Normal service will be resumed. Starting with them on trophy day, last day of the season where a sound thrashing will be dutifully administered at our fortress.
  10. Having had a quick read of this I can see the classic mistake. Profit ids being confused with cash flow. Depreciation on the ground a and Ralston is not a cash flow, it's an accounting concept. The ground is bought and paid for.. Currently the only cost is maintenance and improvements. There are, as yet no major repairs. Our greatest cost are wages (I presume, probably about 60/ 70% of costs). We'll just need to wait and see how things pan as out at the end of the year. At this point in time I wouldn't be too worried, next season though? Back on topic, we are in better financial state than Morton. To get to where we are has been painful. Let's enjoy it now and worry. About the future later. The last board was overly pessimistic prospects. If you plan for the worst, guess what will happen? I don't see that under Gordon Scott and fan ownership. Let's have a happier, brighter future and try to enjoy the run win to the end of the season and worry Morton later ( although would be nice if they came up too _ a guaranteed 12 points)
  11. St Mirren 4 - Falkirk 4. October 2002 4-0 down at half time. Had the game been played for another 5 minutes we would have won
  12. Always thought Hippolyte was a decent player, he should do well. We also need to consider Jacks record in the transfer market. I cant think of a signing he has made who hasn't delivered. This time last year he signed 10 and there were no real failures whereas Alex R**. I'll just leave this here.....?.
  13. Given our start to the season, we're in a cracking position. Win our home games and Draw our away games and we'll be there or thereabouts. Falkirk will have a big say on who wins the league. We wont mess up on Saturday. I'd take a draw just now, but we wont be beat.
  14. Brian, invite came through and I accepted, Then I remembered I can't play (in more ways than one). Could you, or one of your henchmen be so kind as to amend my accept to a decline. Thanks in advance (and Sorry for the admin f**kup) Charlie
