Bottom Bia Bi on for Hamilton vs Rangers tonight. Didn't even realise he was there!
Played well for 30 minutes, holding ball up, winning a pen, and forcing keeper into excellent save.
Rakish Bingham on the other hand is pants.

This one appears to have slipped under the news radar: James McDonaugh appointed manager of Edinburgh City.

Jesus are you still going on about how you dont rate Schmeichel. You lost the arguement. Schmeichel has a Premiership winners medal and is an international goalie. Boaby is reserve keeper at League 2 Mansfield. Let it go.

BBC Scotland 'John Hughes, sacked by Raith Rovers last season, has responded to former director Val McDermid's suggestion that his "slagging off the players in the media was incredibly destructive" and he had no ability to create team spirit by saying his record in management stands up with the best in Scottish football. (Daily Record)'

This man really does believe his own hype doesn't he!! 

I don’t think there’s much doubt in some of the guys achievements but he does seem to be a bit of an ego-maniac and as much as I enjoyed his time here, I wouldn’t want him back.

The clubs downward spiral could ultimately be pinned down to his failure to make top 6 & that match at Pitoddrie.
His dalliance with 'Dads Army', & the wages it entailed, hamstrung the finances severely. With its failure narrowly escaping relegation & indeed achieving that statistic in the subsequent seasons.
But hey, some would say that fluking some silverware in the intervening period, would justify that argument.

Would never suggest there wasn’t faults in Hughes reign but to attribute any success he had down to luck is ludicrous. At the end of the day he wasn’t in charge of finances so whoever agreed to risk our finances to please him is more to blame especially when it was clear he was looking for a move elsewhere.

Balatoni signs for Torquay Utd.

Was decent and I'd like to have seen him stay but his deal made him expendable.

He's played 9 times for them and got a couple of goals.

I was at the Edinburgh City game yesterday as it is just around the corner from me and I couldnt make it thro to Cappielow. Farid was very unlucky - a hopeless refereeing performance cost him 2 doubtful bookings. He still has a good touch and the flick ons were all still there - but the legs are gone - a shame to see. Shepherd was lively but his finishing was pretty poor - could have scored 3. Henderson was pretty rubbish - bit of a bombscare even at League 2 level - wont be missed. Finally, Blues came on as sub - was neat and tidy but didnt impose himself on the game enough.
