Thread About Ex Player

Recommended Posts

Carlo Monti supposidly played for Kings Park Rangers on Saturday against Gourock Thistle AFC. Gourock Thistle being the team who have played St Mirren a couple of times in the renfrewshire cup in recent times. Anyway Thistle won 6-2 against KPR.

My mate plays for Kings Park, told me he's been playing with them since the start of the season. Says he's nothing special.


There's a storm on the horizon

And for that I can't see the sun

For I'll keep a waiting on the pavement

For the ice cream van to come

Wonder what Monti thinks of what happened with his agent and all the carry on this summer? Regrets?

NEVER go into a school after dark for a party, especially into the swimming pool. You will die!

True, this happened to me once.

Talking about former players, I recently stumbled upon this:

 

What Super Mel is up to now....

 

 

Can't believe this.....I read this thread and clicked the link about 6 last night........went to the Lighthouse about 9 pm and not later than half nine in walks Chris Millar with...................... Mell Bottiglieri, and his wife............photos to follow.

 

 

Best part of the night was when Mel and his Mrs got up to sing, as they finished, the boys gave a chorus of ......

 

 

"Posh Spice is a Slapper, She's always on the Telly, and when she's shagging Beckham, she thinks of Bottiglieri"

That is superb :D


Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.

I'm slightly freaked out by this!

 

I wonder what other ex-players I can lure to Greenock by posting links about them...?

Masterton debut for Talbot.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzMExNKoc-0

 

came on as a sub after 65 mins, played a couple of good passes. My mate gave me a look of total disgust when he didn't go breenjing into a tackle and he blazed over from about 8 yards in the final minutes.

 

Game finished 1-1.

 

Well, you can hardly blame him for having a mixed debut, having made the step up to the dizzy heights of the juniors.

You can rubbish the junior game all you want but Talbot are in the top 2 or 3 Junior sides in the country, definitely on a par with mid 2nd division I would say.

 

Mind you, that game today was honking. Stuart MacDonald was playing for Cumnock. Don't think anyone else of note was playing. Only 2 bookings as well, blooming disgraceful.

I'm not rubbishing the juniors. I'm rubbishing your conception of the juniors' being anywhere near SFL2 standard. The junior game is fine for what it is - it's just irritating that junior fans always surface every time they see a player not tripping over the ball to say "oh, he could do a job in the SFL", or because they can manage crowds in the mid-three figures (at £5 a go with a carry-out allowed in half the grounds) they're "on a par with the Second Division."

 

As I said - junior football is fine for what it is, but with SFL regulations, SFL policing, SFL structures, SFL seasons and so on, not a single junior side in the country would be doing anything but scrambling around at the bottom of division 3. Which is why they remain junior - their setup works for them.

You're spot on Nach0, I have gone to watch Bo'ness Utd, Linlithgow and Camelon in the past few seasons and never saw a single player who could make the step up. Andrew Shirra perhaps, but living on your fathers reputation maybe isn't enough.

Well, I have seen Talbot a fair bit and would contend that the side they have at the moment would compete in SFL 2. Never thought about them not having to set wages aside for their ground which they may have to do in the SFL at the expense of players, but their ground is fairly decent anyway. They would get ripped every week in SFL1 and the upper echelons of 2, but they would not be disgraced.

I always find the selective memory as far as his set piece taking goes pretty funny.

 

Other than that, aye, he was fairly horrific. He's like a really really awful version of Charlie Adam.

Speaking of ex-players, I see that Chris Aitken (under his brother's management) has scored 5 goals in 5 games for Stranraer... :lol:

 

Nathan Shepherd has also started all five games as well.

Interesting that only 2 out of the three are playing at a higher level. Some good squad management by the new management team.

I find the selective memory of Masterton's set-pieces funny too.

 

Because anyone who says they were bad is obviously having a laugh. He's a talented player, I hope the reality check of the juniors coupled with his personal problems gives him the jolt he needs to screw the nut. An on-form Stevie Masterton could more than do a job in the First Division.

Would Eddie Malone really count I wonder, considering he was only a trialist and never a registered Morton player?

He counts as a Morton player as he played a league game.

 

He must feel so happy that his Wikipedia page has him with a gigantic spot on his face! :lol:

Heh heh, superb. I actually came up with that one, on here, many moons ago :) The original about Phil cannie that started it all is undoubted genius though :)
