  1. He would be a good player, but the type of signing that would worry me a bit. Our average wage 22/23 was £2885pw & we were 80 odd % turnover to wages & Hearts were £6409. Coming from Everton he's probably on a damn good wage & with his form when fit he'd easily get more than we would (should) be offering. That market of players from England not getting a chance because of the spending power to bring in ready made players & squad players is one that we should be trying to exploit. Hopefully though we now have folk at the helm who will try & be able to get that type of player with out the wages of 2 seasons ago.
  2. That was the issue with the relegated team. It was a.team of talented individuals that somehow managed to be lesser than the sum of its parts. Happy to have no real "stars" if we can create a real team that compliments each other and can be greater than the sum of their parts.
  3. Can't wait!! Mind you first rumour seems to be a stadium naming deal. From the lad Shedward on East. Has a decent track record. Anyone here heard anything?
  4. I'd love it if he actually had the balls.to say that!!! Might tip a.few.over the edge but it would be funny.
  5. To be honest I am allowing myself to be in total celebration mode at the moment, and it feels good!! Having said that part of it is relief that it's over, and especially at the first time of asking unlike last time. I'll worry about next season in a few weeks, but now I'm looking forward to 2 league games with absolutely no pressure at all.
  6. This for me. I'll be hoping for a Rovers loss on Friday. If that happens it will be fantastic going along to Tannadice absolutely delighted to be there & no slight feelings of dread. Full on celebration mode.
  7. There in lies the problem. I've been in a similar situation when attending a game with my son who was 8 years old at the time and the fear is that I ended up with grief & trying to keep him safe as the were partmof a much larger group. Confronting them in that situation was not an option and trying to speak to stewards etc may have been difficult without making it obvious. As we get more of the attitude that idiot behaviour is unacceptable then the easier it should become for folk to self police.
  8. The difference being fans in the States will turn up in advance of kick off, where by there are vast swathes of fans who sit in the pub to almost the last moment. If you need to search everyone then the delay in getting tlin before kick off may cause folk to kick off. It only needs one or two in the queue to do so, before others may react, in some cases justifiably, verbally and then you can have a big problem. If folk would only act like adults ( I know!!!) then there would be no problem.
  9. As I said previously about it, I'd raging at a United defender doing that. Watson clearly has both arms round Moult by the book it is a penalty. The only criticism is the way Moult drops as having arms round you like that doesn't make you fall in that manner, but you see that week in week out, the fall though isn't what the penalty is for it is the 2 arms round Moult which was as clear as day at the match. A stupid, needless foul but one leading to a happy outcome for us.
  10. I think it's a confidence thing. Outwardly he seems to project the cocky, confident player. I do wonder if some of that is a bit of a cover with his self belief basing that on some of his snatching at chances & the way his head can go down. This season we have seen more of the team player, where he doesn't stand out and does things Watt of old wouldn't, but today he got his goal, well taken, and a few things worked for him. The 2nd went in and the pressure lifted, and you saw Watt really showing what he could do. As you say a bit more work on his head, as he seems much more of a team player this season, he really would be up there.
  11. Sibbald was noticeable last season as one of the few players we were happy to keep on for this season. The points won when Docherty is on the pitch, compared to when he has been injured is also really significant. You'll not find a United fan who doesn't appreciate their importance this season. Although in every team it is always the goal scorers that get the songs & Watt and Moult are two, by Scottish standards, far better known, higher reputation players & should be nowhere near Championship, but I get what your saying, but we do appreciate their importance.
  12. Is there an echo? Will everyone be accused of that? After first 5 minutes, in that first half and other than Ruddens shot that hit the top of the bar, there was absolutely nothing from Raith. Was quite surprised. Dubrovski made a number of saves and it wouldn't have been a shock if we'd gone in at least 2 up at the break.
  13. Reading comprehension not too strong? Or did you just read as far as the first thing that named a Raith player? Your as bad as the folk that rage and form opinions from a headline without reading the article. Both teams were at the "dark arts", but the original post was completely myopic, and was just mentioning a few things as balance, and claiming that's why Rovers lost which is plainly complete and other, one -eyed bollox.
  14. I know folk like to wind up rivals, we are all guilty of it and let's face it it can be fun!!! But to spend money on a ticket in the away end to watch your rivals hopefully lose, on a day your own team is only 20 odd miles up the road is pretty sad.
  15. Fair play. To be fair other than the first 5 or so minutes, which had me getting nervous, I'm was expecting more. Not sure if it was us stepping up and showing a bit more dig and drive than we have for a while and you guys not dealing with it. Although, not surprisingly, I'm not too fussed just happy with the win.
  16. Sit in the East Stand, while I've seen stronger penalties not given (Broadfoot's two arm rugby tackle comes to mind), it looked a clear penalty. Would have been raging at a United player for doing that. Moult clearly held back.
  17. Sorry?? You were undone by, especially in the first half, having United camped in your half. If you want to talk about "cheating" Brown took about 5 yards minimum every throw (moved.forward 2.complete advertising hoardings on one), Connelly was too close by about 2 yards at every United corner towards the end. Your players were obviously under instruction to go down to rattle & frustrate United, thankfully today it didn't work. We can then add in the constant, no attempts to play the ball, jumping into players (Vaughan on Thomson for example). By all means support your team and complain at decisions that you may not agree with, but you will not go to ANY football match and see either team not use "dark arts" to try and get an advantage so try not to be too myopic. I will agree that the referee was atrocious over officious, and seemed to take some truly bizarre decisions with drop balls etc. but just another incompetent from SFA.
  18. Eh? Over 9000 home fans at the game. Plus Rovers fans. The capacity is 14223 minus the closed Fair Play enclosure
  19. I used to think you were alright for a Dee! It's not beating Raith that's the issue, it's being able to beat ourselves that's the big problem!
  20. It will be good to see. Unfortunately with our track record in front of big home crowds part of me feels I've seen this movie before. It feels like the 2014 cup final, we have the chance to do something, but we understand perform again & let ourselves down. I'll be delighted to be proved wrong though & will be going along hoping we do actually turn up!
  21. Not true. Raith were told the reasons, as Barrowman has confirmed in his own words. He just doesn't think, publicly at least, they are justifiable. Up until Barrowman's comments the only folk that didn't know the full reasons were the fans of both clubs. He is fully aware, he just chooses not to say. Keeping quiet allows.the shithousery to continue.
  22. Is it? Yes United could use it. They have told Raith Rovers the reason yet Barrowman says... *United have given us an explanation, after the event, which doesn’t really carry much weight, if I’m being honest. But it’s up to them if they want to make public that excuse, let’s call it." Quite telling that he is so enraged, so upset by it and so upset by the reason given yet he won't say what it is. He's not been shy in coming forward with any thing else so why keep that back? Is it because it wouldn't create the "rage" against United & the "their against us" feelings. Luigi Capuano states.. "We’ve spoken to all the relevant stakeholders involved trying to find solutions. There weren’t any. So we had to make a difficult operational decision to slightly reduce their allocation." So there has been some issues that have come up. Who are the relevant stakeholders? United, Raith, Council for H&S, Police, fans groups, who else? Having said that I too would like United to come out & give the reason and stop the nonsense stone dead.
