    Falkirk game

    I'm pretty sure this board will NOT act between now and end if the season/ confirmation if relegation, whichever comes first. I'm not even confident he won't be here next seaaon even if we are in the seaside league. Horrendous times.

    Falkirk game

    Agree this is the likely reason why he was booed. That and the fact he seemed to down tools and was one of the players causing the rift between the manager and players. That said if i were him i'd have been pretty pissed that barton got a game ahead of me too.

    Stranraer Cup Game

    Agree, Getting any "big" club at any stage could sap even more morale from our team. But losing to stranraer would be a new low. I remember going to their "park" about 2000ish for possibly Lambini's first game back? Horrid road so no replay please

    Agree somewhat with all you post here LIB, eapecially the OF comment!! Would counter that imo the first yellow card incident harkins got the ball and contact with the man was minimal anf so i agree with GC that the falkirk players were ........at it? Agree completely that harko should've known better and not committed to the 2nd booking tackle AND yes, my main point mirrors yours, that we should have seen the game out. My main thrust was i didn't see much wrong with his interview and liked the general spirit of his content which we could speculate is part of his tactics to seem/come accross as supportive of his players? Can we agree andrew dallas is an outrageously poor ref in a disappointingly poot cadre of refs. Spoke to a few falkirk fans walking back to the car and they were very critical of his performance which for me is a good indication when both sets of fans agree. BTW they believed the penalty shout push from behind was a stonewall penalty.

    He sure does but, although i take the point that we don't want to hear our manager speaking in that chip on the shoulder way, i agree with GC's point that Dallas was very very poor. Did he cost us the game? I say yes cos up til the sending off we looked like going on to score more and thet didn't look like breaking through. That said we didn't help ourselves keeping playing with 10 men and two up front!! Aaaaaargh, tactically nieve manager

    Agree with the finding the fan part. Hr was awsome. I still didn't think GC came accross as badly as i was expecting, you're right tho, her performance was pants. I didn't think he was the disgrace i was expecting? On the attacking comment, we were all over them 1st half and looked threatening going forward up to the sending off. Even after their goal i was pleased to see us still trying to take the game to them. I'm heartened by the new signings, and the performances of harkins, bannigan and slater. But still have huge concerns around the manager. I do think we are passed the "better performance" stage tho. We need to start winning or we are down again.

    I listened to this, possibly looking for some amunition to have a snip at GC. I've no issues here. I didn't get the impression he was condescending to her. Or treated her differently cos she was a female. He was clearly p1sed cis he felt the ref was p1ss poor, and he was. Does anyone think andrew dallas would be a ref if his dad wasnt hugh. He is honkin. Many times archiebald was interviewed i'd moan cos it was bland p1sh. I like his attitude. Her questions were p1ss poor and no wonder he got annoyed at her tedious drivvell. He sounded like a fan imho

    An example of radio scotland paying lip service to lower league when the premier is off. That's always annoyed me even when we were in the premier.

    Had a conversation with my son this morning, he was switched on to the archie situation as after the top 6 finish and particularly after the aberdeen hammering he said archie's time was up and he should move on, before he ruined his reputation. My repost? What does a 15 year old know son, c'mon, after Lambie he's probably our most successful manager, including DavieMcP. He was on the money. Why am i mentioning this? well this morning he told me he would rather have archie back than carry on with this clown & quite a few of his mates in the northie think that. He said yesterday right after we scored the feeling there was we'll not do enough to win this, while in the JHS the mood was we can go on and score more. Just shows the difference of opinion. Not changing the formation and not changing to 1 up front after the sending off was criminal. We are doomed to div 1 if this guy stays with his worse record than archiebald. Doomed i yell you, doomed. Further discussion though about who to replace caldwell came up with, leave brian kerr in charge or break the bank to get mccall. So not much help there then..........mum provided bacon butties, nice.

    Falkirk game

    Best post i've read in a while spider. A very reasoned post and i agree with everyrhing tou have typed. May i add my tuppence worrh on the game. There were 5 of us there today and we all agreed we had been thoroughly entertained. That'll not dave us but it is progress. I too fear we are too far behind in terms of progress andvwill fall short. I too feel for GC tonight. We deserved to win but as you say legs like a spider we don't score enough. Today takes us in the right direction in terms of performance but we need to start winning. Lose next weekend and he should go but the reality is, he has been given funds to sign players and won't be sacked.

    Yep. He has not. It's academic now but i thought mcintyre a better fit for us. Could have been the case as some managers seem to do well at one or two clubs but bomb when they move to others. I genuinely hope caldwell turns us around i really do. Also mcintyre's dundee career shows that there are not many options among the "tried and tested/experienced" brigade. That said it doesn't mean if he moved to another club he wouldn't enjoy success again. Not saying he is for us!! There must be other up and coming learning their trade managers but you could agrue caldwell fits that profile. Personally, at the time archie left/was sacked i wanted an old experienced manager. Mccall was top of my list and others on here, but we are where we are. I just felt that the downward spiral would be better addessed by an experienced head is all
