  1. Seriously, what would sacking KR tonight achieve? For a start it would cause a financial hit which happens when you terminate a contract early. We're not a club that can afford to be spending absolutely anything more than we have to. Then it would undoubtedly unsettle the team, which could cause us our form to dip even further and thus compounding our current problems. Don't get me wrong, I'm not convinced that success is guaranteed under KR. But neither is it under any replacement. Of course, if we get pumped repeatedly by 3 or 4 goals in the next few games then that's an entirely different matter. But right now, let us not forget we haven't lost in the League since August and our form in the last 6 matches doesn't paint such a gloomy picture (but yes, it still isn't great versus where we want to be). Our next League game against Cowdenbeath will be a very good litmus test on where we actually are. The division's current most in-form team visiting Forthbank. Bring it on!
  2. Had you told us we would have scored 3, conceded 2 and taken 6 points - I think most of us would have said 'deal'. Like I disclaim, I haven't been to the games, so maybe you think this is all flattering to deceive.
  3. Listen, I haven't been to a game since the opening against Queen's Park because of where I live... But, we need to take a step back for a moment. Yes, it's been a shocking start to the season. However, there are some positives that should be noted. - Defensive Record. We've got the second best defensive record in the League having conceded only 9 goals. We've only conceded more than a single goal in 2 League games - and we haven't lost a game by a margin greater than a single goal. - 4 Games Unbeaten. A streak is a streak. Of course we'd all prefer if it was 4 wins, but it shows we have a team that, at the very least, can compete. Changing the manager this evening would be nothing more than disruptive based on the current form. So while I'm not suggesting everything is rosie, there are certainly some things to be hopeful about. We're 2 wins away from the play-off spots. It's important to keep that in mind. The next 6 League games will of course be very revealing. They include home fixtures against Albion Rovers, Annan and Brechin. We MUST win at least two of these. So I'd say 5pm on the 7th December following the Brechin game is the time to review the current situation and ask whether or not more drastic action needs to be taken. It would give us enough time to get someone else in place, in time for the transfer window opening (not that we have any cash to spend). But I'm really hoping all of this will be academic and we'll all be singing Kevin's praises while looking forward to a Merry Christmas!
  4. Football management is such a lottery. While the manager is very very important, their success depends on so many variables it's often hard to predict season-to-season, let alone club-to-club. Now, I've said this before, but our most successful managers of recent times were Brogan, Drinkell and Moore. All of them novices on taking up the position; all of them successful with us; all of them unsuccessful elsewhere. While Stewart and Scott weren't short of experience and success, yet brought neither to our Binos. My instinct (and ignorant mind) tells me we need more experienced footballing minds around the club in order to move forward - while not necessarily requiring an experienced manager.
  5. So here are some stats... It's been over a year since we lost to Annan. Our last six meetings have featured 3 or more goals in each match. You have to go all the way back to September 2013 to find a game in which we haven't scored against them. Finally here's quite a positive article about us from The National yesterday. https://www.thenational.scot/sport/17906255.stirling-albion-39-s-dylan-bikey-seen-cult-hero-amongst-fans/ Mon the Binos!
  6. Points on the board. A clean sheet. The record breaking start-to-the-season losing streak is over... No longer bottom of the table. Well done to the manager and the team! Keep it up! Mon the Binos!
  7. I've taken some time off the forum recently. Some very good and constructive points being raised here. Bravo folks, bravo.
  8. Whatever we think about today's game, let's be absolutely clear... The next four league matches are against teams which make up the five places above us with Albion Rovers. The time for excises has to end across these fixtures. It doesn't sound like a lost cause yet for Kevin. Mon the Binos!
  9. This doesn't sound like the sort of performance after which we call for the manager's head?
  10. We were 1-0 up before losing 2 players and a penalty with what sounds like soft decisions. Trying to pull something positive out of it...
  11. This according to my app. Not at the game.
  12. We must get points on the board today and we must score. Rovers have the worst defence in the league - but they have a team capable of scoring; second only to Cove. It's a winnable game for sure, but the stakes are high and the dangers are there. Our defence needs to be organised and tight. We need the drive, passion and hunger that seemed to be on display in the latter stages last Saturday. It's a new club record if we lose. I'm sure we're all nervous and hopeful in equal measure. Mon the Binos!
  13. Highlights are out... https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=tlvnCB9tPws
