Thanks to all (especially Mike) with comments from the game.

We’re down but from what’s said today I can see us coming back next year as league one champions with a rejuvenated young team. Not saying it’s will be easy in L1 but I can see that scenario as distinctly possible and a definite way forward.

Cheers Andy, glad you saw it the same way, thoroughly enjoyed today

You and Mach were on the telly crystal clear and for quite a few seconds, you certainly looked happy as did all of those around you. Great to see it and the commentary was very complimentary of our fans.
So it was BlueMike. Thought I recognised him minus Bono shades on 59 mins ( there was a youngish dark haired chap with beard/glasses to his left).
Really enjoyed the performance. Great support as well.... had to stream the game as IFollow wouldn’t show the game... neutral commentary made a big point of the great support since we’re staring relegation in the face and that it was difficult to know who were relegation certainties v top 4 team. Could not disagree.
Make sure we sign Judge.... I think he’s making a massive difference to others like Nolan & Bishop around him. Always wants the ball and is so positive.... been wanting a player like him for years in midfield to drive us forward.

......they will except colourful beads and meth's for the return of your wheels.
:lol: Why do I keep thinking you’ve tried to park your car in Maryhill, Glasgow, Wolfie?

Think I’ve told this story before...... long story short. Was at a Hibs v Partick cup game...... was about 25 years old and these 14/15 year olds all marched up to us,
“Watch yer car fur a fiver mister?”
“Pi$$ off”

Old guy in our ear...... “I’d give them the fiver. Your motor will be on bricks before kick off!”

Rushed back, “hey wee man, how much? A fiver you say?!”

:lol:
Yep Marco that fiver you gave me really came very handy, :lol: :lol: at the next Cabbage v Jags I'll be charging £20 due to inflation, :shock:

I don’t even think they waited till today Ash. If i’m correct they sacked him yesterday soon after the match ended which suggests to me the decision was taken before the game kicked off and was subject to them winning convincingly, anything less and he was out.

As you say bloody fickle.

AylesburyBlue, the youngish Merlin man with the wand of curses at the Tesco self service with bevvy:
Assistant: You got ID, son.
AB: No! But I’ve got this beard.
Assistant: Really need to see some ID, pal.
AB: (waves wand) SHAZZAM...., your car won’t start after this shift.

Later that evening.
Assistant: WTF?! Piece of sh*t car. COME ON!!! START FFS!!
