v Dumbarton

Post by LangToun Loon » Sat Mar 11, 2006 5:07 pm

Superb result! 2 down after 12 minutes and managed to fight back to claim the 3 points. Great to see Bobby getting back in amongst the goals again. With Partick and Stirling only managing to draw, this puts us in a great position now. Up to 3rd in the table! Fantastic performance lads, lets keep it going for Stirling next weekend.

It was hard going in the first half, not helped by a poor ref & a diabolical linesman. All credit to the lads for sticking at it & adding another 3 points to the play-off push. The goals were well taken with Gibbys coming at a time it looked as if nothing was going to go our way, Bobby took his very well. We can now look forward to next weeks match

Tremendous comeback by the team at Dumbarton. Bobby Linn very unlucky not to score a hat trick. Martin Wood went off at half time, I hope he is not injured as he is coming onto a good game now and will be needed for our final push towards the play-offs. Partick and Stirling both getting draws was a bonus for us, but it all boils down to what we do in the remaining matches. The team has been brilliant up to now and whatever happens in the next 8 games they have done the club proud. A massive game on Saturday at home to Stirling Albion with hopefully a big crowd to cheer on the toon to victory.

The final push

Woudn't it be nice if some of the support who went to Ibrox, and those that travel to Pittodrie to watch the dismal Dons, came along to Balmoor for the final few games of the season to support a team who always give 100%

no point in wishing for a bigger crowd - not going to happen - too many people not supporting the local team - even on the trip to Ibrox there were too many so-called supporters just going along for the occasion or else Rangers fans in disguise (there were a few on my bus).

we regulars will just have to get on with it - remember that supporters follow their team whatever the results not because of success or playing attractive football.

glory-hunters will always turn out for the special game but when the going gets tough or the weather gets rough they disappear - let them go - we don't need them.

I take your point but remember when the club were in a similar situation a couple of seasons ago. The crowds were about the 1000 mark, surely you will agree that this could give the team a lift in their quest for promotion. There is a fan base within the town, and I think that with the clubs position in the league now is the time to inform of the virtues in watching the local side. I will be encouraging anyone who will listen about the merits of at least trying out what Balmoor has to offer. Word of mouth is always the best form of advertising, and the extra revenue generated would be welcomed by the managment.
