  1. Danny deserves it, not only a cup winning manager, but a gent, a guy who was a fantastic ambassador for the club during his time with us. Always represented the club brilliantly in interviews and any public appearances.
  2. I was on the train, having a drink and a sing song, I'm not one of the "young crew", but I enjoyed the journey. I have to be honest and say the atmosphere was a bit loud an boisterous, but generally good natured. It's been a long closed season, with an enthusiastic, highly energised support waiting impatiently to go and watch their team again. Away games like that are big days out and fans look forward to them for weeks. Maybe that excitement and the long trip caused people to get carried away with the booze, and I'll concede that maybe the atmosphere created on the train could have been a little intimidating to a non-supporter, but I certainly didn't feel that at the time and I'm positive that any of the lads or lasses singing along would be horrified if they thought their behavior was upsetting anyone. I didn't see any aggression or anything like that, in fact, there were a group who got on the train singing their own songs, replying to ours, having a good laugh. Maybe I was in the tamer coach. I didn't see any drug taking, and while I agree with an earlier poster that it's up to individuals what they put into their bodies, they couldn't have been being very subtle if people who weren't partaking were seeing them do it, so I agree that that's not on when there are kids on the train. Basically, everyone needs to calm down a bit, everyone. Calm down a bit on public transport if it's making people uncomfortable (we've all been stuck stone cold sober in a coach with a stag party or a group of other fans) and calm down on ripping into people who are getting a bit carried away on a day out, they're not thugs or neds...I know I'm not.
  3. Would require a shit load of tipex, to be fair.
  4. I thought that was a wind up...jesus.
  5. I think the key thing is looking at the other teams in the league. For me, there isn't a squad in the Championship I would swap for ours. A few individual players, yes, but I think we have the strongest squad overall. Sure, we have areas we could strengthen, but so does every team at this level, if they didn't they wouldn't be at this level. I'm quietly confident.
  6. They seem to be treating him like a big signing, he's doing interviews for the website, wee videos from the pre-season camp, modelling the strip. The club, if not the fans, seem to be quite sure he'll be a big player for them this season. I'm sure he will, he's got bags of ability, I reckon he'll go on to bigger things again soon.
  7. Great news, Have to admit I thought this was quite a big ask when I first heard about it.
  8. I'd imagine we're got over 1000 now, that must be over a week its been sitting at 997. It was after the big pay day surge that it shot up from 800 odds.
  9. Any info on busses? Looking for 2 seats if possible?
  10. I thought Sutton signed for Wycombe when he left us? Or was that after he left Motherwell?
  11. I did wonder why the JD signs were still on the sides of the stands. It's a large advertising space that the club should be looking to make use of. It could be, as suggested before, that although they no longer supply our kit, they are still sponsoring us on some level. But I doubt that.
  12. Hope he's not out too long. Would be a massive loss. Honestly, of McLean, McGinn, Mallan, McAllister, Morgan, I think Kyle could be the best of the lot.
  13. Any trialists involved tonight do we reckon? Are the guys Watson and Grant still training with us? Or the boy from Celtic that played during the week?
  14. This exactly. How many times have we seen Scottish teams that would probably beat us getting pumped by clubs from "Diddy Leagues" in Europe. I said earlier in the thread, if he was available, he'd be worth a trial.
  15. I'd imagine he'd come in on trial first if anything was ever going to happen. If, after that, Jack and James were convinced, I'd be happy enough to see him sign. Depends on how fit he's kept himself, or how he's adapted his game as he's gotten older.
  16. Anyone know the team? Any trialists play?
  17. I don't think I count as "the young generation", but I'm certainly not old. I don't hate him, but I'm at a loss to know how he can have sold so many records. To me it's just bland, not shite or awful, just bland. I think it's maybe just what people want from their entertainment these days, to switch their brains off, the same generation of people who eat up Big Brother and Geordie Shore. It's not a criticism, just an observation. People have stressful, busy lives, maybe entertainment that makes you think on top of that would be too much to take?
  18. He's a vaguely talented, cheating wee shitebag.
  19. This is why it's such a bonus to have 90% of our squad in place. Even if any of the trialists sign, they will have been with the squad since day one of pre-season. Hopefully that serves us well in the first few games.
  20. Good early test. Looking forward to it. Site seems to have crashed now, so can't see the rest.
  21. Any busses planned for Nairn? Is that pretty hopeful?
