  1. If there has been broken promises regarding training ground, that was agreed, then surely one of the committee has to take our Willie to task over it, or are they on the gravy train as well, looking from the outside in , something is definitely not right ( no shit Sherlock).... Do you think oor wullie and Dempster will be there in 2 years time....
  2. What are you fermers laddies like eh... Not much of a rivalry between the sides, not much point trying to generate it one now after all these years, personally I think it is a decent draw and possibly winnable if we get a rub of the green and a strong unbiased ref, hopefully you Make it down, plenty overpriced steak pies for you on arrival I hope,
  3. This is probably as exciting a time to follow Airdrie on a good while.. An interesting Scottish Cup tie at home against St Johnstone, Home to Partick the following week , then into a televised semi final against Raith Rovers, it certainly beats a Kelty Hearts, Montrose double header....
  4. Noticed that Queens Park fans were in the Jacke Husband stand yesterday, surely even Thistle aren't mad enough to put the Airdrie fans in that stand, we used to , and let's just say it got quite lively at times.... Stick on for the old rickety main stand.. Looks like Brian Graham suspended which has to be a good thing, far too early for predictions, but we have all week to slag and abuse all and sundry if that's ok...
  5. Stuart Malcolm sounds like he has been employed with this on the back burner, just waiting on Dick to fall.on his sword
  6. In fairness to the lad he has plugged away and is playing at a decent level, how many lads of his youth team at the time are still in the game., apart from Rohan and Cadden.. Was that the game with the Russell "volley"
  7. Getting this post in early, what is the watering holes to avoid next Saturday, what's still open , what's shut etc.... Planning a good few of us.to visit Cooper's pre-match, I hear there is a right bitter luvvy that runs it....
  8. I remember it well Sean McIntosh was supposed to the second coming, well according to Spanish Armada anyway... Rohan IMO cost us promotion that season Alloa beat us on pens... All is eventually forgiven..
  9. I must be honest, in the new years Rangers game a few years back, I was enjoying the festivities a bit much back then and found myself challenging Bilel Mohsni as we was walking off the park. In saying that he was claiming everything that moved, Bollan, McLaren and Bain were all after a bit as well.. Mohsni was dragged off the pitch by 4 of his teammates an absolute rocket, who would probably have been knocked out by his shadow... It amazing what Football turns you into..
  10. To be fair to Kyle Wilkie he was a good player just wasted by injuries, Craig Watson gets written off many times but rarely lets us down, good solid player and hopefully here for a good while yet..
  11. This weekend we head to Stranraer one of our old haunts in the Scottish Cup, how many remember November 25th. 2017, only 6 years ago, we travelled to East Fife and got leathered 6 1 and it could have been much worse, really desperate times, the club on and off the park is on a different level now,
  12. After seeing all the teams so far, to me, there is not a team that seems so far adrift performance wise, Morton are bottom just now and need to dig in over the next 5 games, I cannot see any side being out of it, Teams that cannot score goals eventually find themselves near the bottom, it's a helluva tough league, where every point is a battle unlike League 1 when you can scud teams with relative ease ,it's like night and day..
  13. I know Scottish football is normally all over this kind of stuff, I wonder why he got let off lightly...... Not to mention telling mistruths in the Quitongo tribunal, a great ambassador for the PFA.....
  14. Having suffered in the main stand previously it really is a struggle for anybody over 5 8 , legroom is non existent, so cowshed for me, Good view, good atmosphere and from that viewpoint I get the slight similarities to Old Broomie, decent enough day out, looking at what Morton have, how did we end up where we did in League 1 for so long, only the second time I have been behind enemy lines the other at Dumbarton on the COVID season when away supporters weren't allowed..
  15. As I posted earlier was behind enemy lines in the cow shed watching the game with the local natives, First Half Airdrie in spells were very good although Morton did seem to surrender the midfield , not our fault and our one touch passing and movement was top drawer, one criticism was we don't create enough from good positions.. Second Half Morton played 20 yards further forward from the off and went on the front foot , playing in between our lines, stopping crosses is always.an issue with airdrie and today we.struggled as that was there biggest weapon with the 2 burly Morton strikers head and shoulders above McCabe and Fordyce we rode our luck as every team does and we were dangerous on the counter although O connor at times looked dangerous in space with his pace, but the rest of his game needs major work, watching him he seems to not want to do the hard yards, until he does the basics well he will struggle.... Good game today, Cappielow has really not changed much over the years since I was first there in the 80s, it is probably the closest park you will get to old Broomfield that is left in the game these days....
  16. Pretty tight park, probably doesn't suit the 5, park looks decent though, Behind enemy lines today in the coo shed,, my knees are bad enough without enduring 90 mins in that stand, about 175 Airdrie in the stand just now,
  17. Would think he will change to a 4, although he could bring in Cassidy at CH like he did at Stirling.. Up front. Do we change it about and get Gabby involved , we have options, although no partnership up top has really clicked this season. Should be a decent game, with the semis not booked in until February, it would give either side something to look forward to..
  18. He struggled to get game time at Stranraer and dropped 2 leagues to Darvel..
  19. McCall on paper looks a good appointment, who comes in with him Neil Scally, McCall recently took a watching role at training with Thistle, something I don't think he can do with Clyde.... What's the odds on a relegation play off final with EK. Must be pretty short at this stage .. The pile in on Mick Kennedy has taken on epic proportions, buying the league's etc, look at East Kilbride players and tell me 2 players that shouldn't be playing that level they are currently playing their trade, I will give you Liam Brown the rest have found their level either on the way down from league 2 or on the way up from the juniors..
  20. Airdrie still technically run the hybrid, we only have one Part timer and that is Calum Gallagher, we still train as a hybrid Monday , Tuesday nights, Thursday nights, and Friday, therein lies the biggest problem it is getting experienced Full time players to buy into the changes in training etc, might not sound much but if you have experienced players and lifestyle of training 2 hours a morning 4 days a week, many don't want to change, remember we offered and agreed terms with Grant Gillespie 4 seasons back and never signed due to the hybrid training..( that was the reason given at the time(.. Where do Morton train, Parklea
  21. Scott Stewart was very poor today alright in a left wing back type role, how is he with you guys, remember a couple of seasons back he was very good , on a more forward role... Looked a shadow of himself today
  22. It's 8 o'clock and there are still fans outside waiting on Graham for a square go, apparently Graham has left the building.. Typical Thistle legging it ..
  23. As posters have already stated Alloa is a fine football club and normally take the steady approach, for me it has a Mark Kerr vibe to it and to be honest I think he is a decent coach ..
