I'm just organising myself for Saturday. After a bite to eat in one of the many gourmet bistros and pavement cafes in Hurlford, I'll be heading for the game. My optimistic horizon is clouded by only one thing; how many football matches have we actually won on one of 'those' pitches?

Crowd on Friday
Absolutely delighted at the result...but was that really a crowd of 4500+? Given the 250 Accies fans, that would be close to our best 'home' turnout for months. It didn't look like it from where I was sitting!
More importantly, we're looking competitive again; we're still in hope rather than expectation, but the hope is markedly strengthening.

The end of the season comes along. Hearts and Queen of the South win promotion. A plan for an expanded SPFL appears as if by magic. As luck would have it, it would keep us in the SPFL.
But, having worked out what it's really about, should we vote for it?

The crowd today
I thought our fans were outstanding today from beginning to end, and I just don't believe that their encouragement didn't push on the players to greater commitment than we've seen for months. Long's save at 0-0 when ICT were clean through on him could have turned our season round. 'Well done, Mr.Long', as somebody in the DC shouted.

Team for today
I'll need to set off for the game quite soon. Any sign of a team list?

Deep breath time...again
Having turned 72 last week, I am, to say the least of it, conscious of the importance of time. One of the awkward features of time is that, unlike nearly everything else, you can't get it back once it's gone. So there's no point in dwelling on matches / defeats that have gone. We have to look ahead. Whether or not we deserve it, we still have a route to redemption. Our new guys have three exceptionally big games coming up. For the umpteenth time - this season alone! - we need to get behind the club and urge them on. If IB can get us organised into a team, we have, even beyond those three home games, chances of points. Only Aberdeen are stronger than they were; most clubs have lost good players. It can be done.

I couldn't make it tonight (but I'll be at Tannadice). Clearly a disastrous overall performance, but did Stephen show any sign of form? On a related tack, can anybody now think of a reason why Thomas shouldn't start games?
