    Quick Free Kicks

    Referees “should” police it better but it’s tough to enforce, when do you make the stance? The rule is ten yards but that’s impossible to enforce with a quick free kick if the attacking team wants to do it immediately. The reason you don’t see many players doing the kick off an opponent trick is that the referee will in many cases just ignore the first offence, consider the game restarted and then it becomes an issue for the free kick taker as possession is lost and game moves on. ultimately another example of players making the rules difficult to enforce so we have this grey area

    Stranraer v Pars

    @GG Riva so you’re saying yes. No win v Thistle then he has to go? im just asking because that is eye opening with your support of SC previous. Not a dig, just an illustration of how it’s not worked out.

    Stranraer v Pars

    GG, so lose or draw v Thistle and he should be sacked?

    Playing squad 2019/20

    Aye good point. It’s an approach which has been needed for a wee while, build young, 2 year contracts so we get a full season of development then can push on. I don’t buy into the theory about our fans being any worse than others about giving youth a chance or backing our players. Our fans get antsy if players don’t apply themselves- that’s the key thing. Christ it’s not as if we’re all about the quality. Tam McManus was adored by our fans because he did put a shift in when he first arrived. He wasn’t very good but because he made an effort he was forgiven many shortcomings. looking forward to the new season starting, if only to wipe my memory of that horror show last season!

    You could actually see the confidence drain out the guy this season. He definitely needed a move to be able to make any kind of progress. The fact that he was kept out the team by a decent bit not great centre midfielder says it all. All the best to him, BUT we can do better ourselves.

    New Kit Design

    Let’s hope there never is one like it...! 😂 i do prefer the thicker black and white stripes to be honest, the pinstripe never quite sits right with me, but that is definitely an age/era thing. I grew up with the pars in the mid to late 80’s so fond memories of thicker black and white stripes. Be interesting to see what is tried for this year.

    v Dundee United (H) Postponed :(

    Official site and twitter say no. Just checked forecast and it’s changed to rain for next few hours. Should be fine. should.

    Championship champions

    Livingston finished 2nd last season. Hence why we played United in the playoff. I still maintain that had we beat United, we’d have gone all the way. AJ had Livingstons number and Partick were laughingly bad. There’s yer “luck”.

    Stevie Crawford - Manager of the Month

    Unfortunately I think it’s just society as a whole. With social media and the internet, that dude you’d hear about in the pub with their fantasy theories on the world and life who you’d previously just ignored, now has a platform with literally thousands of others. Football and indeed DAFC are not unique for having zoomers following them and spouting ****. Just way of the world nowadays. Back on topic it’s a tremendous achievement and is a good endorsement of the boards actions this year, long may it continue.

    v Partick (h)

    Irony.... that and your absence from that post for several weeks until we started this winning run. 😉

    v Partick (h)

    Our gameplan so far seems to be as follows:- 1st half, be incredibly turgid, but just don’t concede. We’ll work out what to do at half time. 2nd half, all the learnings from 1st half into action, get a goal and shut it down, if the opposition leave gaps, torment them. its not the prettiest to watch but so far it’s frighteningly effective. That 1st half today was as bad as the last two games 1st half, but it’s three wins. Whats so welcome is that the obvious stuff that we saw under AJ is acted upon much quicker, so if a gap appears it’s plugged, shapes are changed, subs are used, there’s no fear on making decisions and changing things. AJ was open about saying that he felt he’d find his best 11 and leave them on as long as possible. We now seem much more adaptable to the opposition.
