  1. "but this is a club that is now set up to compete in the top division of Scottish football" who at firhill committed this to paper? they should be taken into a darkened room and made to watch our recent games
  2. it was offside . Sitting in the jhs in line with play defo offside strange team selection, midfield again, shambolic penrice, who I rate, didn't really get into the game robson played well, but when pushing forwards he very rarely had support from others we continue to punt high balls up to graham and rudden don't think Rudden won a header all night, doesn't look match fit it's the same problem for the past couple of seasons, far too slow moving the ball forwards through midfield, and punting aimless high balls up the park no midfield players creating openings, pushing forwards with the ball, it's all so predictable as others have said , what do they do in training all week with cole and gordon warming the bench at ko and watching barjonas playing, I would like to hear our managers take o n that lastly, bannigan, think he should be rested for a wee while imho
  3. ptg ref point 3 my grandfather told me that firhill was built on an old quarry horse and carts were used to transport stone etc to infill the quarry he also told me that a horse and cart was backed up too far and unfortunately fell into the quarry, the horse was not recovered maybe originally the quarry stone was used by the railway companies to ballast railway track ?
  4. player in the background third from the right Norman Wisdom "Mr Grimsdale"
  5. bannigan is bustin a gut out there, cole, hang on austin on
  6. 2 great saves from fox mansell on for jones this sums up the quality of player we have this year thanks gary!!
  7. our midfield is rank cole and gordon (is he actually on the park) wee joe our best player again second to every ball so bloody predictable
  8. two and a half year contract to me he looked more than ok against celtic put himself about plenty of energy when fit graham and zak will cause opposition defences plenty of problems for me we need to look at our midfield and wide players we dont push the game forwards we don't really have a goal threat from midfield no one takes on the responsibility of threatening the opposition defence most teams we play, like dundee arbroath alloa etc, they get the ball forward much quicker and have players pushing on in other words they play the game at a much higher tempo we seem to have players that make a pass and then stop, they don't follow up and support the receiving player and give him options with the ball all basic stuff really, again i say what do we do at the training ground?
  9. as this is a thread on our manager, maybe we should be having a "meet the manager night" let's hear Ian's thoughts on the future and hopefully remaining in this division I for one believe that he is the man to get us out of this shitfest what do you think, a no holds bar with our manager
  10. when sneddon does get a game he very vocal throughout the game and he is not afraid to put himself in" harms way" maybe against the rovers on friday he should get the jersey
  11. maybe the signing on loan these young players was due to budget constraints i do however like o'connor, gets right onto his opposing player and has good technical skill maybe some of more experienced players should have a closer look at this lads attitude
  12. re cole i agree that he has been disappointing in recent games. But why do we have him taking free kicks in our own half and especially corner kicks. Surely at corner kicks, cole who has a tremendous shot should be positioned outsjde the goal area waiting for clearances what happened to mckinnon yesterday not even on bench
  13. the manager says his fault today, he picked the wrong team ok ian what team should you have selected today and what formation i had a look at the subs bench scary! heidless chickens sums it up for me today all of the playing squad should in tomorrow doing a full shift second to every 50/50 ball giving the opposition players to much time on the ball when we did manage to get hold of the ball we were pressured straight away too many players slept walked through that game today far too slow getting the ball forward and the midfield not supporting our forwards dundee couple of passes, players moving off the ball, chances created this has been going on for weeks now, what do they do on the training pitch all week we don't play as a team , more a team of individuals i could go on, totally scunnered, don't mind being beaten by a better team, but this, certainly no way if this goes on like this over the next couple of games I believe relegation is on the cards onwards and upwards, I don't think so
  14. loved that forward line, duffy and mcparland donnie mckinnon center half, double shuffle billy cunningham and big bad john harvey sandy brown what a player for us, and joe hogan joe came to us a center forward bit like elliott, fortunately joe could cross a ball and of course george niven, happy days indeed
