    Our last 3 managers were all guilty of signing players then trying to fit them in instead of signing a player for a certain position. We now have 5 central midfielders, none of them can play on the left. We have never had a left midfielder since the days of Conroy. Now we have Nelson following the footsteps of Loy, CW etc. When Ness is fit we'll still have that problem but we'll have yet another CM on the bench. Poor recruitment. 

    I don't believe that's so. Dorian's is an opportunity we couldn't (and shouldn't) have passed up. 

    Ness and Byrne sitting. Dorrans ahead of them in a free role with McDaid on one wing and McPake (he has to be given a run) on the other. That leaves Robertson to come in for any of the 3 in the middle. It's ideal, IMO.

  2. Just watched it tonight. Found it very interesting. 

    I've heard snippets as I was relatively young when it was going on and even now, those who shared the line still contradict one another. 

    Also learnt that Tommy Sheridan has always been a walloper. I thought it was just the last decade he took a nosedive.

    Wy oh why didn't he simply say that he was out for a pint and a minor ruckus took place but he wasn't involved, that would have been end of story.

    Erm, no it wouldn't. 

    He's been summoned to appear at court. He should in no way jeopardise the case or himself by talking about it - however vague. 

    Plus, if he said a 'minor ruckus' occurred, folk would still be speculating and wanting answers. 

    It's a lose/lose for him.

  4. A few things : McPake never denied it. The guy who started it all by putting out a picture on Snapchat saying McPake was fighting/headering folk in Braes come out the following day and said he had made that up. McPake's wife phoned him to which he said he wasn't fighting (the sensible thing to do, I'd reckon most of us would).

    A reporter has got wind of it, put a status up and has later had to remove it due to McPake and Irvine being called to court. 

    Considering he wasn't arrested, I'm taking it it'll be the JP he's up in front of. There should be plenty of witnesses and I'd guess an array of video evidence to prove him doing right or wrong. Personally, it makes absolutely no difference to me if he's been in a scuffle. 

    Rumour : What I've seen elsewhere is some young boy(s) were singing the United ditty "Who's the lying on the Dens Park, who's that lying on the floor?" to James. A song of a serious injury, one that ended his career and Gary Irvine took exception to this and headered one boy - apparently causing permanent disfigurement (irony, huh?) - so McPake never actually had anything to do with any of the physical stuff. 

    At the end of the day, I'm sure a fair amount of us have had and will have a scuffle in a pub. It doesn't bother me in the slightest. I know others may feel differently.
