Barry Smith,eh?  You think you'd have been better off keeping Doddser?


We have created more chances in half a dozen games with Barry than we did in two seasons with Dods. 

Just a shame the ref decided to be a Barry hater on Saturday too.

I’ve just watched them again and I’ve a bit more sympathy with the ref now than I did on Saturday. Thomson first booking which didn’t look like a foul in real time is a fairly clear shove and denies a clear attack with ref perfectly placed to see it. Booking correct for me. His second booking is still a bit questionable but he was fortunate not to get a yellow for his dive attempting to win a penalty with ref again perfectly placed to see that so Brechin fortunate that they only had 3 minutes with ten men rather than 30. The second penalty claim could have been given either way to be fair. If the ref hasn’t given it because of the earlier dive then that’s good karma and a break that you sometimes need and a rare one for us in recent weeks so most welcome. For example the penalty we were denied at Arbroath 10 days beforehand was much more clear cut.

Stranraer free kick for the winner is a foul and the protests about it not being taken from the correct place that I heard on Saturday don’t stand up. If there’s any doubt about that being a free kick have a look at the one Brechin got in the first match in September in almost the same place. These things even each other out.

Stranraer well deserved victory, better side for most of the game but we need to be turning more of our good play into chances, as a result we needed crucial saves from our keeper at crucial times which isn’t good for the blood pressure!

Great to get the win we’ve been due now hopefully push onwards and upwards.



What dive did you see ?  The defender made no attempt for the ball and just charged Thomson.   The second claim was a stonewaller  . Even your keeper shook his head in disbelief and said the ref was having a mare. 

Your contradictory summary of the free kick for the winner suggests that even you doubt it was a free kick. 


As Trinity said you are probably  on the wind up . Either that or you were part of the crazy gang  just down from us first half who were pished/ stoned  or whatever.  If that's the case then I understand your reasoning. 8)
