Topics I've Started

The Great Collapse Of 03/04

17 March 2017 - 01:39 PM

There's a decent Pie & Bovril thread going at the minute (http://www.pieandbov...llapse-of-0304/) with good posts in particular from Toby & Dunning about the great collapse of 03/04. There's also a piece in the new Nutmeg which I've not got round to reading yet but am told is worth seeking out.

Are there people on here still convinced there was a scandal, or were we just a bit pish and ran out of luck as Toby & Dunning suggest?

What Is Our Strongest Starting Xi?

28 February 2017 - 03:59 PM

Was doing some thinking about this earlier. What is our strongest Starting XI? In the unlikely event that everyone is fit, what team do we go with? The defence pretty much picks itself but midfield and up top is where it becomes difficult. Michael Tidser has been excellent for us recently, but should he be dropped back to his rotational role to accommodate Murdoch & Lindsay? Is Quitongo & Oliver our best partnership when Nesbitt & Tidser worked well there?

The one below is probably what I'd go with, but I really don't want to drop Tidser. I'm also still not sure if Lamie/Russell on the left is a better option for big games.

Thoughts?

Dundee United Vs Morton

Pretty big game this and there's no reason why we can't take something from it. Not sure what Duffy's going to do though. I think the system used at Ibrox could work, but I wouldn't like to see Shankland dropped. Perhaps something like this?

Gaston
Kilday Lamie O'Ware Russell

Forbes Lindsay Murdoch Nesbitt

Tidser

Shankland

McDonagh had a nightmare against Falkirk and I really don't fancy him at RB on Saturday. Still not convinced about Kilday there either but he's at least a defender by trade.

Greenock Juniors

Originally posted in another topic, but someone suggested I start a thread. Greenock Juniors are about to go under. I know very little about the situation other than they're supposedly in debt and could cease to exist very soon. They helped us out when we were in difficulty, would we be willing to do the same? I'd certainly chuck a few quid in a bucket at Cappielow if we had them.

Anyone know anything more about the situation?

Duffy

Kilmarnock are looking for a new manager. Naturally, Duffy's name is being tossed about. A Kilmarnock fan I've just spoken to seems to think he'd "walk over hot coals to manage them." I am not particularly convinced. However, if he was offered the Killie or Dundee job in the summer, if we've failed to gain promotion, could anyone see him taking it?

Both are bigger clubs than Morton, not by much, but have better resources are more money and would offer Duffy the chance to manage in the Premiership again. I can see him being tempted.
