Will the wounded beast react....

or not?

I think he's playing for Glasgow United these days. 

If you mean will the Links Park Dynamo scrape through with another penalty given against City then probably. Mind you we could be Cup winners by Saturday :thumsup2

I really wasn't wanting to resurrect the spectre of the notorious former Scotland and Glasgow United player.

That really was a sorry episode for Scottish football from start to finish.

The thing that left those of us who watched him play for Clyde against our team for several seasons, scratching our heads, was why things only blew up when he signed for Raith Rovers?

Why was it considered acceptable until a celebrity crime fiction writer gets involved because it's her club which is being tarnished through its association with him?

A shambles from which nobody emerges with any credit other than the victim who had the courage to seek justice.

Well, at least we have something in common-

You'll never win that, you'll never win that, Montrose and Edinburgh City, the East of Scotland (City) Cup- you'll never win that!

It's to be a balmy 16 degrees tomorrow although wet and windy. 

Probably turn into a farcical hoofball contest then. I can remember a game at Links Park which we won. Some tactical genius in the Mo dugout (Hegarty maybe) decided that playing long balls against City was a good idea. We had Big Joe in defence at centre half and he headed every ball back.

Big Joe Mbu  he was a bit of a baller back in the day.

I would take any win right now, we were woeful last week(which you probably seen)and rightly so thumped by the league champions.

I wouldn't be surprised to see 3-4 changes to the team tomorrow SP wouldn't have been happy with that level of performance.

A bit windy

 

Was the wind really that bad or was the ref. just worried his toupee would come unstuck and fancied getting home early?

Surely it wasn’t that bad?!

It was awful, shouldn’t have started.  Weird to say as it was a sunny and warm day.

Montrose were kicking into it, a couple of times dead ball kicks literally did a 180 degrees and ended up behind where they started.  

Getting the ball to stand still for a goal kick was a nightmare, often 3 or 4 times it would roll back towards Cammy Gill before he could take the kick. This happened several times.

A slightly misplaced pass would just take off into the distance, probably made worse in this case on the 3G pitch.

Felt sorry for the Montrose fans who came down in good numbers.

Abandonments are pretty rare, anyone know if refunds are issued or at least re-entry when it’s played, though that might not be much good for travelling fans midweek?

Hard to believe the wind was worse in Edinburgh than the rest of Scotland ? Seems a bit of an over reaction !

At Broadwood on the Astro the ball wouldn’t stay still so players were holding it for free kicks etc.

If it's abandoned in the first half you get a full refund or replacement ticket.

Probably not any worse, but Meadowbank is kind of really open to the elements, it just felt crazy, there was no quality football in the first 20 minutes whatsoever, players trying to play passes forward into the wind found it heading the other way instead.

We had heard that Montrose didn’t think the game should have started (and you can understand that sentiment as they had everything to lose in the situation), they were right.
