    Tumbleweed central

    Good win today, but not a lot of people posting on here.. I remember when this site was hoaching with punters.. can't blame people though..all the adds, pop ups etc really ruin coming on here... anyway, I hope today, even with such a weird lineup, is the turning point and the team can kick on from here.. especially since the champs got beat last night sat the bottom club makes the gap not that insurmountable..

    We needed the three points today, but another unconvincing display, with one up front.

    The ref didn't help, every tackle was a foul

    Still don't see much improvement.

    The main negative yesterday was needless passing about at the back and still a lack of urgency half the game.

    Positives were we won, total control in second half, 2 goals (by shooting) and the clear vision dorrans has to pass in front of payers so we can move forward.

    Funny thing, I was in the mainer yesterday and the amount of negativity after even 15 minutes was incredible. When the ****e played Arbroath and were losing until 88mins they were behind their team and scored 2 in last minutes. Maybe fans can play a part too?

    We have a sizeable minority at Dens who just don't support.

    We had Forster arguing back with the crowd, Jack Hamilton gesturing with his hand towards the crowd (Our fans will destroy this guy eventually) and Byrne letting off a bit of steam as well.

    The Cox is just appalling, 3 mins (I looked at the clock) when the first awful shout came.

    What I find incredible is the small things....ie Marshall got taken off injured he gets a very good reception (no encouragement during the game mind you), when the subs warm up they get a good reception ( I think some of these paps just go to clap the subs) but the subs can't get a game in the team they think is utter ****e and the honouring of bang average ex players....clapping Bobby Linn taking a corner for example and I heard one dad explain to his son that he was "a great player for this club"......seriously it's just nonsense.

    I've seen people post that this goes on at all club's but at those clubs they still have a reputation as being great fans when things are going well (hearts and dons obvious examples) we don't even have that.....Our support is moany or moanier depending on how well we are doing.

    The howls of derision are beyond comical now. Itís very pantomimesque and a total minter.

    Outside the ground people had started moaning about the line up dies that beat 3mins? Or that it was more hissing than booing disqualify it?

    See I kinda accept moaning away from the game (I'm quite good at it) but at the game I just can't stand it.

    Instead of family sections, singing sections, wrinkly sections, we should have a not overly happy but reasonably contented no moaning ****s section....I think it would be quite popular.

    Give you another example.....guy across from me constantly moaned about passing across the back (particularly Forster) and gave some sage advice from 10 mins in about going long....now I'm all for mixing it up a bit so I'm ok so far.....he continues his coaching for the whole of the first half to no avail really and gets really angry when we score "we don't deserve that".

    2nd half starts, forster goes long....goal kick, 2 mins later forster goes long and wide...throw in.....

    The coach rises to his feet and shouts "forster find a ****ing man you idiot, keep the ba"

    Now that's like telling a bairn take the stabilizers aff your bike, fell aff, ffs, put the stabilizers back on.

    Not enough people on here to make a clique

    To answer Nappers original point - less people post on forums such as this because of FB and Twitter
    The posters of this forum in the past did do their bit in ensuring our survival at both the admins as this site was a focal point.
    Met some great guys and gals over the years who posted on here all who love our club.

    Seems to me that your comments are always some kind of counter punch to put it in boxing terms. There's very rarely an element of original comment and an invitation to reply with a thoughtful response. Maybe that's all you want from this forum but it looks as though it needs a bit of help with something positive from the likes of a guy like you who has been a member since 2008 and has 27631 posts to his name.

    Thought the weird lineup was doomed to failure and I was delighted to be proved wrong. Maybe this will give the moaners cause to at least wait and see before moaning. Must be the first time for quite a while that an experimental looking team selection actually got a result. the "Greatest" losing also seemed to be a very positive outcome for us.

    not very often.. for many reasons.. but the main one, being as I stated in my original post. Which is, I find Footy Mad very user unfriendly, all the pop ups and ads do my head in.
