  1. I do really like it from the front but the back is a bit grim. Will look better with a name and number in there. Presumably we’ll go with white numbers and lettering. Was a real shame they didn’t get the gold sets for the Cup Centenary jersey.
  2. So good to have someone who’s not afraid to make changes to the shape, personnel and tactics. Big win.
  3. Chick Young on the radio commenting on our lush park that will appear very alien to Thistle
  4. I wouldn’t recommend the Accies Vaults, tbh. Bar West is alright.
  5. Is Polworth more of an attacking midfielder? Can’t recall seeing much of him for Killie or Motherwell but think he played central midfield for ICT?
  6. Before the decision to move on from Vision myself and Gavin were asked to come up with away kit concepts. I posted these on Twitter a while ago but here they are for those that want to see them/slag them 😄
  7. Raith we’re hanging on at the end there. Disappointed not to get the win, which is in itself an indication of just how big a difference there’s been since Imrie took over.
  8. Is this Gary Oliver’s best goal scoring season for us? 6 in the league so far.
  9. Welsh too while on loan from Celtic was more often than not played out of position at RB.
  10. 8th was also the target when Gus was hired. That was missed. After surviving the play-offs he should have been thanked for his efforts in his short time with the club then allowed to mosey on out.
  11. 6’3” centre back. Used to play Gaelic sports so presumably not afraid to get stuck in.
  12. It looks to me as though it’s both - the hoops aren’t consistently aligned as you point out, but the placement of the badge relative to the collar placket is also different.
  13. MCT tweeting he has mainly played left midfield at Finn Harps. Paired on the left with Strapp or competition for LB/LWB?
  14. That is a salient point that renders my original post bin worthy. You’re right and all, I’m really just trying to avoid more my more natural position of miserable pessimism in all walks of life for a wee change. I find myself defeated, however. Which is a wee shame.
  15. Thought he had some pretty decent games (admittedly against a low benchmark among his teammates) prior to New Year, then he had a spell out of the team again. I absolutely agree it’s a bad idea to get too hung up on his contribution right at the very end of the season, but it shouldn’t be ignored that he stepped up when it mattered and he was finally played in his preferred position. It helped that Oliver had an upturn in his performances that coincided. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love a proven 10+ goal scorer to be signed rather than have Muirhead our sole centre forward, I’m just trying to be a bit ‘glass half full’ about things whenever I can.
  16. When Hopkin signed Muirhead he said words to the effect of ‘It’s about t8me he got the chance to play in his best/preferred position as a No.9 rather than being shifted out wide’ then proceeded to play him at LWB or LM almost exclusively. He looked much improved when played through the middle and has shown he’s at least capable of a good finish (a great one, even) and can get on the end of a decent cross. If he can find some consistent form (and I know it’s risky to bank on that happening) he should be able to at least contribute the sort of goal scoring output of McHugh a couple of years back. What could be the real difference maker is replacing the likes of Nesbitt and McGuffie with wide players who can regularly deliver decent balls in to the box. It’s telling that the best cross we saw all season was from one of our Centre Backs in injury time at Airdrie.
  17. Inter are the latest to make a real arse of it. Their badge was excellent and managed to look modern despite the fact the central part was the same as it had been in 1908. They’ve swapped it for something not a million miles away, but absolutely worse.
  18. He was cursed with a lack of pace. Wondered how he would do if he migrated to more of a deep lying playmaker role, but for whatever reason the only player shifted there ‘experimentally’ in those days was Mark Russell.
  19. Good to know. Will look in to it for festival season. Not these, though:
  20. Are cans of wine ‘a thing’? Should’ve gone with a Mojito, Abbott style.
  21. I have. My journey wasn’t quite as luxurious as most of his. Rather than chilled Chardonnay and canapés I had two cans and a tangerine.
  22. I generally travel through with my old dad and we tend to park at the marina. I’ve done the bus and two trains from East Kilbride with a friend a couple of times and it was no hardship, but my dad won’t be in to it, even with his titanium knee. He’d be happy to use a park and ride, though. An extra quid or two per game on the season ticket wouldn’t be so bad for the service. Or better yet I pay a small charge and he gets it free as a senior.
  23. That’d be ideal. Not sure the majority of folk using the car park every other week up until the pandemic will be keen to leave the car at home, but maybe I’m being a bit too cynical. In any case, seems a more palatable deal than the previous options.
