JR picked out the 2-0 at Somerset as a really critical game. For me the Stelios 2-0 Hibs a few days later was even bigger.

The Saturday, we beat Ayr to get within 5 points then, on the Tuesday, there was the Ryan Stevenson farce and Ayr go 8 ahead again. 24 hours later the Stelios show against the league leaders and we got it back to 5. That must have been a real, unexpected kick in the teeth for Ayr and obviously we're left thinking we can beat anyone in the league.

Unfortunately, I get the feeling as well though that'll he be away. A few things don't really sit right. Jack was saying he was a maverick who could wind up others in training and it sort of stuck out McGinn shouting at him when he was on the ground poleaxed after one of Ayr's goals in the 6-2 game. I think I'm right in saying as well that he was one of the few players who didn't go to the Bankhouse on Saturday night. A shame really because he would have got a hero's welcome.

 

Did Jack Ross actually say Stelios winds up other players on the training ground as I have not heard that ? The word Maverick describing Stelios to me that he could do things out of the ordenary / magic. Here is a player who can hold onto the ball has composure in front of goal. Just my view.

Big Eck has left Forfar after his loan deal came to an end.He was meant to sign a new,1 year deal but due to finding employment outside football he cant commit to Forfars training schedule.It looks like he will now sign for Airdrie.

Just remembering the meltdown when Eck was told he could leave! emoji23.pngemoji23.png

If only Stubbs hadn’t freed him along with Cammy Smith, McShane and Hippo, breaking up the Championship winning side.

Wait, hang on.... emoji23.pngemoji23.pngemoji23.png

Got to laugh at the zoomers on this forum!

We do indeed

and my favourite one - Gary MacKenzie not even worth a look in pre-season - told at La Manga he would be surplus to requirements... before we'd played a preseason friendly.

Good thing OK had the ability to see the merit in the likes of Baird, McGinn, Flynn, McKenzie, Mullen etc ably bolstered by his excellent January signings. The nucleus you might even say.

I also remember vividly the meltdown some zoomers had when the utter dug shite that was Stubbs was sacked
