  1. That would presumably be Clyde getting punted, that agreement would be with McGowan....
  2. What is the capacity of the main stand at the Falkirk Stadium.. Thanks in advance
  3. Next round is getting drawn at the Excelsior before the game on Sunday, so we will be in the hat....
  4. We are just pissed off , we couldn't get you in the Final, it would have been lower league box office, That would have been a decent final.... Regarding recent troubles League 1 used to be a sleepy old seaside league, looks at it now Alloa young guns or whatever they call themselves running riot, Falkirk and Hamilton fans squaring off, what next...
  5. It's working for Rhys and us at the moment, he has total control over everything, PH just leaves him to it apparently and Rhys gets what he wants within reason, he goes to other 'bigger' clubs, would they be willing to give him total control, I don't think so, I personally think he will be here for the foreseeable future, Football changes quickly, pressure will be on him for the Hearts game, from the media and the armchair curiosity fans, we need a good show next week and more importantly follow it with 3 points against Ayr the following week.
  6. I could be wrong the figures I got quoted when the stadium opened at first were, 3750. main Stand, 1800 each behind the goals and 2820 East, I don't think it is far off, still think 6 k or just above for Hearts game, depends what we sell and any neutrals that want to come along, we have that factor as well,
  7. Thanks for info , hopefully accies can get there act together and out that league, trust me the longer you are in it, it sucks the life out the club....
  8. Ho much prize money is on offer for Trust Trophy finalists, Hamilton won it well last season, is it lucrative money wise.
  9. Listen I would swap places with Raith in a minute, top of the league, very talented squad, but Murray has been a bit of a kid on a sweetie shop signing wise, did you really need to sign Rudden, I have saw this lad numerous times for Thistle and Dundee and honestly not seen him have a decent game yet, Hamilton or Smith i rate higher, the same with Kyle Turner does he add much more to a very talented midfield, something isn't right is it a clash of egos, Dylan's has to be massaged, Murray is the man to do it, an off form Vaughn and Smith are the same, In watching Watson and Murray are 2 meat and tatties centre Half's, who struggle in a game of pass the parcel, so much of today's game even at our level starts from passing out from the back, in your good run O Reilly was passing out through the lines ... Murray at Airdrie was as dour as f**k most of the time, but he ground out results, maybe he is struggling with a better supporting cast, he might need to go back to basics, to get this going again.. Good luck for the rest of the season,
  10. The last few finals have been on astro, if Falkirk win , I can see the final being played at Livi, Good luck to TNS , but an Airdrie v Falkirk final is lower league box office,.... Onto tonight's game where we controlled it pretty much throughout, their were a couple of performances worth mentioning. Dean McMaster a player I haven't been as praiseworthy as others towards, he had a man marking job on Lewis Vaughn, who is arguably one of the best players in the league, Dean schooled him tonight... The other was Charlie Telfer who again played Dylan Easton out the game, nothing fancy, simple one touch football and a cool head.... Nights like tonight, makes you think how far we have came from the dark days (not that long ago). Let's enjoy this, we deserve a wee turn.
  11. It could be the biggest bin fire in history, one only Steve McQueen could put out.
  12. Would imagine the North stand would be available if numbers merited it, The frustrating thing is the main stand will probably be half empty holds just under 4k, Airdrie at a push IMO will sell 2k which is a decent number for ourselves as you say kick off time and BBC game will be shown in the attendance unfortunately..
  13. We are on 28, and in a decent place 'at the moment' but our Away record is terrible, apart from the recent win against yourselves, we only picked up 4 points in half a season away from home, and after our next game we will have only 5 home left and 9 away, so as you say things could get tight for a number of teams
  14. It looks to me as if Murray is going baws out to win this cup, to be honest looking at your signings recently, all on paper top drawer for this level, Rudden and Turner, is that areas of the pitch you have an abundance of riches, Murray is or at least used to be the epitomy of a safety first manager, bordering on being dour, this season maybe due to the players at his disposal Dylan, Vaughn, Hamilton etc , but he seems to be signing players aka lower league galacticos, I hope you guys can nick it from United at end of season, although I think they will eventually go on a run .
  15. Are Hearts liable to sell 4300 tickets ( roughly). For a game at teatime on BBC on a Sunday, if so, hats off. .
  16. Why would that B trenchie, I think we will be looking at a crowd of 6k max, so probably wouldn't need it any way.
  17. Crawford was all the rage 4 or 5 years back at Hamilton, all of a sudden it went quiet, I always felt their was an off field issue with him, he has never got back to that level.. Spong i have watched a few times this season and was a stand out , he made you tick in the middle of the park, Welsh is decent enough but not that type of player. Are you guys confident if getting to 40 points which always gets quoted as the water line.
  18. What is the split of the gate, it isn't 50.50 , it is not something like 45 home, 35 visitor and the rest goes to SFA.. it's not as simple as it seems, to be honest I am glad the club are trying to maximise revenue streams, I see Hospitality is in the Rowan suite, how many does that hold, it seems pretty well priced .
  19. Don't know anything about tickets yet, heard on Saturday that Hearts will get 2 stands, 4300 approx ,, Airdrie will be in usual main stand, think expecting a crowd of around 6k.. also rumour I heard was away car park may be getting closed due to Hearts buses and the BBC broadcasting trucks.. if so we better get there early..
  20. Hard to disagree about the game, fair result, the game ebbed and flowed for the 90 minutes and was an intriguing watch, Thistle istill class as one our bitterest rivals, but to be fair they are the best side we have played (3times) this season, Airdrie are becoming a lot more streetwise, we had 4 potential starters out, and we still competed to a high level, a 3 week break as we go on our cup travels , after that teams will start to kick for home and the pressure in the league will really crank up. Is the decent Partick outfit down to shrewd business and coaching by another young manager just waiting for a chance, Doolan, Rhys, Tidser (Kelty), Agnew ( Stranraer) have all been trusted by their chairmen, which really goes against the grain of Scottish Football where the same names get thrown in the bowl time and time again.... Yogi anyone....
  21. Answering your post( respectfully hopefully). I can understand your frustration been there myself your club is on its arse, and you watch teams spend money like a drunken sailor and signings decent on paper players at will, Going back to our dark days we were in Provisional Liquidation not administration ( don't know the difference really TBH) basically we were fucked, We had a few CHANCERS Archibald being the biggest liar since pinnochio and for some reason the liquidator KPMG liked another wrong un who was linked to Dumbarton, as you say we got a stay of execution and somehow survived that season, yes we did have Owen Coyle from Ross County, he wqs over 30 and considered to be 'shot' in footballing terms, the rest of that team had some decent names but absolutely done Eddie May, Derek McWilliams, Fraser Wishart, Landry Zahani oni,Scott Bannerman, we stayed up somehow, and the following season we picked up some decent players Ian McCall was in his pomp back then, picking up Mark Roberts in the exit trials, Alan Ferguson keeper thrown on the scrapheap (knees were done though) Craig McPherson freed by Morton , big Kevin James, Stuart Taylor, Lee Gardner , Colin and Stuart McDonald a 16 man squad that punches way above it's weight, it was thrown together not carefully crafted with a warchest.. It has taken us a long time to get back to the championship, do we belong here time will tell, One thing I will pull you up on Craig Feroz "The Bulll" he was a great striker for my local junior team Rob Roy back a few years back.
  22. We will give you the 32 pence back next to time you visit Airdrie if you want..
  23. Now we are talking Happy Mondays, the early 90s were a great time to be an Airdrie fan and also for the Manchester music scene, what a time to be alive...
