  1. What kind of figures are getting banded about.
  2. Well Morton what can I say as a fan of one of your rivals, fucking well done sums it up pretty well I think.. Watched that on the box the pitch and the Grand old Lady looked great, Cappielow is one of the few bastions left of a happier time in Scottish Football, I took in our Trust Trophy cup tie against your selves behind enemy lines in the cowshed and was one of my most enjoyable afternoons of the season , where football should be played.. Right enough of the niceties, I am away to put my money on Imrie to Ross County what's the odds......
  3. I don't think the club are willingly chasing us away from the stadium, bigger sides like St Johnstone who we put to the sword have always had stadium parking for all big games, alright we will have half a dozen TV wagons and cables going everywhere, I heard the club had a few meetings with Police Scotland regarding the match, maybe this is the best solution to keep costs down, I can only guess, what do the club get charged for Officers on duty in the park and outside etc or do we get charged for extra plod on the streets of Airdrie keeping us all safe going to and from the game.. I sincerely hope we get our act together regarding the kiosks, this is the chance to shine and make money, if this is the usual shambles and quality surely for next season we need to get a decent company Pie Sports or somebody to give us a more varied and better product, that we have all commented on when on our travels this season..
  4. Agree totally, have you sold your allocation of around 4.5 k .yes a pre season friendly played in a monsoon around 05, 1 each with Owen Coyle scoring a peach and i think it was Phil Stamp scoring for Hearts( could be wrong)
  5. Hope you good Hearts people are looking forward to the game like ourselves, hopefully Police Scotland don't make this a bit of a chore, no parking in stadium complex or surrounding roads, When this happens it is guaranteed that pockets of trouble will break out, with no old bill in attendance obviously.. Have you been informed of the Police enforcing the "Thistle law". keeping supporters behind after the game until Home supporters can be dispersed, (knowing our luck they will keep the 2.5 k Airdrie supporters back).. Should be a decent occasion, do any of you guys remember the last time you played Airdrie at the Excelsior (one time) .
  6. Get him to f**k, losing 5 zip to Motherwell is a sackable offence in itself, never mind the post match interviews, an absolute fud...
  7. The East is 2.8k and South is 1.8k
  8. How are the sales.of the Hearts tickets getting on, I think we are hoping / expecting 4.5k away fans for this time, if so , hats off big time, that would be an impressive following.
  9. That would presumably be Clyde getting punted, that agreement would be with McGowan....
  10. What is the capacity of the main stand at the Falkirk Stadium.. Thanks in advance
  11. Next round is getting drawn at the Excelsior before the game on Sunday, so we will be in the hat....
  12. 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...
  13. 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.
  14. 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,
  15. 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....
  16. Ho much prize money is on offer for Trust Trophy finalists, Hamilton won it well last season, is it lucrative money wise.
  17. 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,
  18. 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.
  19. It could be the biggest bin fire in history, one only Steve McQueen could put out.
  20. 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..
  21. 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
  22. 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 .
