    Boss says we weren't fit enough last season

    BURDEN exactly the affect some of these guys had on the team last season. the onus/burden is on the players to carry the badge to the best of their ability. some have neither the ability or desire to do so,. and need to be punted

    Level Playing Field

    until the scrutiny is published in open media outlets yes. spl/sfa should be ashamed of what they have allowed refs to get away with. I am not only a ref who has refereed at contributory lge level that is just under the conference level I am also a refereed assessor or as we are now called an observer so I know the expected performance levels of refs and most refs I have seen in the spl would be struggling to gain the min mark when they referee us. some things I see are a disgrace and cant understand why the ref has made the call. some I see I can understand to complicated to go into but basically its all technical stuff the average supporter never thinks about. easiest way to put it is down to his actual line of vision ie did a player cross his line when the incident happened. what view did the lino have again was it obscured was he watching the area or was he watching for off the ball incidents like offside minefield for linos hated doing the job to many things to be looking at your on a no win.

    I never said that there were incidents that went against us should have been punished and didn't get the correct card and that was a defo red. how he seen that as a yellow is beyond belief. like you I have seen many tackles that should be red get yellow in fact I have done it myself and lived to regret it. we all cock up at work sometimes just that the ref is in full view of the tv/and general public. having said that the ref standards are poor in Scotland. I cant say for sure but I would think most have been fast tracked. seen it here where the refs get good marks and get promoted but are not really up to the higher level as they miss out on a lot of learning in the lower levels.when I started you had to do a min 2yrs at each level now they can get promoted to conference level in 5yrs way to fast.my mate has only just made middle of the championship after 16yrs he has learned the trade and is getting the rewards most refs in Scotland would struggle at confrence

    guy was simply unplayable. when you look at what he did with that old T ball the way he could float a pass long or short he could put it on a tanner for his mate to run onto. seen him before and after he left not as classy when he came back but could see his brain working.

    us being soft and naïve didn't help our cause last season. refs do the job to the best of their ability (granted not very good). but we can be our own worst enemies also. we lay down to often on the park when things went against us. not having a pop at the ref at the time and then trying to have a go at players in revenge and we get carded refs watch for that even they know when they have fucked up and they know someone will try to take someone out so are ready with the card. not saying that we deserved some of those reds/yellows but we did deserve a bit more protection from refs. steve g I have a feeling wont take long to take them to task in the media on the level playing field.

    League fixtures out this Friday

    unless your driving up you got flights trains busses digs to sort out. all come at a cost if the game gets moved to sunday. dunno about train and bus cost for changes made flights are almost as dear as buying the original ticket. last time for me ticket was £50 to change the flight it was another £40 (flybe) from Exeter. your suggestion about pre arranged tv dates is to simple so would never work.

    Blackpool End of Season Party

    think anyone who has watched us this season would have seen enough of donkeys and the rank grub at the stadium. so why travel a couple of hundred miles for more of the same

    Another klaxon jaxon misery piece.

    cant see anything to get worked up about apart from the mark allen comment. all the rest has been said here many times ok it came from a mongo but that cant hide the truth of what is said.

    Collymore the pisshead on the attack

    for a man with not enough brain to be classed as a half wit he certainly tries to be one and is therefore an insult to real half wits.

    Probably some truth in that.but he doesn't strike me as someone who learns very quick after all only had a few months with miller so who else could we blame warbs at forest

    Cummings is a no from me he has no heart for it at ibrox.look at his reaction when he looses the ball or a pass gets cut out 90% of the time its hands in the air as if it was someone elses fault and seldom tries to retrieve the situation just stands there till his next cock up. the system may not suit him fair enough but you have to at least show your trying and for me he doesn't do that.
