Incompetent certainly, bias seems likely.

I think I'll spare myself the heads gone the next time he is in the middle for one of our games. 

Yes, it's not even just the big decisions as he also wears you down with all the 50 / 50 and even 60/40 and 70/30 type decisions in your favour going against you. This surely won't be lost on the players which in itself plants the seeds of doubt before the game even starts. The fact McAllister made that silly clumsy challenge makes it even worse as he must have known what was coming.

The Killie fans mostly despise him as well but there's no doubt that he's got some kind of vandetta against us, that's for sure.

Oooft.  We've only won 11.5% of games he has been in the middle, next worse percentage is St. Mirren at 21.9%.

Yeah, obviously a lot of other variables as well. It just struck me as very low. The more games the more statistically accurate as well. It was just when a DKB said he did them no favours either. I had to check the stats. 🙈

That's a win % David Hopkin would be jealous of.

Think it seems to have been swept under the carpet slightly here, but we're charging £20 this Saturday for a game against a League 2 club! I would assume the game in the summer wasn't that price!

ETA - Was £12 in the league cup.

Suggests we might not have been able to agree on a fee with Elgin, it defaults to the home side's usual gate price if you cant.

Aye, I would like to think we have tried to negotiate a lower price and it's Elgin who have probably tried to get as much money the can out this fixture. Around  a 33% markup up on the same fixture that took place 6 months or so ago is a bit mad.

How much was it for the Pollok game?

There’s probably little incentive for Elgin to agree to a lower price. Would mean less gate money for them and facing a bigger home crowd.

£15, thought that would have been reasonable enough for this game.

Umbro or O’Neills. 

I can't comment on their sports gear but they certainly do a lovely Sausage and Colcannon......

I’d love Nike but can’t see it. Umbro, Puma, or Macron would be decent. I do like the Dundee kits this season, especially the away one. Adidas stuff was madly priced IIRC, but that was probably bad business on our side.

Price suits Elgin as they get a bigger chunk of the gate money , every team dropped prices in the league cup as a number of teams played fringe players and used them to try to pick a team for the league

Must be about a 50% rate of a penalty being awarded against us in those games as well

It's a personal thing, but I'd much rather have the option of buying a top with the sponsor's logo removed. This season's Jewson logo looks awful on our strips. The sponsor logo is the reason I'd only buy the training wear these days - looks much cleaner and classier. In saying that I haven't bought any training stuff since the Adidas days. That stuff looked really good.
