  1. Popped in for the game against Dundee United as an interested neutral. Facilities were very good in fact better than expected - I'd never been to a Highland League ground before and was pleasantly surprised.

  4. Alright buckie fans i just wanted to leave message on behalf of myself and all those from fife`s finest who travelled up from fife for the game on tuesday.We travel all round scotland to watch raith but the welcome we received at the ground from the moment we arrived to when we left after the raffle draw in the club was fantastic.Even being allowed in to tie our flag onto the fence pre match was a great gesture.We thoroughly enjoyed our time and sadly it wasnt long enough so hopefully we get you in the scottish cup.All the best for the new season as you are now our adopted highland league team.If you are ever down our way get in touch as you will be made more than welcome to come to our pub.Thanks again.Mon The Buckie !!!!

    Looking forward to the next round. ' mon The Jags!

  18. Hi , I know this is a long shot but I'm trying to contact a Buckie Thistle supporter who used to or maybe still does go to the caeboot sale at Tranwell near Morpeth . He was an aquaintence of my husbands and used to get DVDs from him . I don't know his name but if you are a supporter who knows him or are him can you please get in touch at the above email address. .Sorry for hijacking your page , but its the only thing I could think of . many thanks .Sharon English

  19. Another great day on the road, well done the team and the support,its coming back and its noisier than ever. Bit of a job next week, but we will do well. Formartine are cranky and annoying out to provoke, the team has to respond the right way. It will be like a Scup tie , one long hard 90 minutes

  22. What a difference a fuller squad makes, with only Woody, Burr and Low missing we saw what we are capable of at the weekend. Even better was to come from a goal behind , undeserved on the whole of the play but not surprising as Broch changed it 2nd half and looked better for it, and win with a lot minute pen.
    Was delighted with Shaun Wood as well , best game he's had and Kev Fraser was unplayable at times, and I must admit fair play to the captain who stepped up big time at 1 down, Lewis threw himself at the game after that, well done boys work in progress and delighted with that win.

    Posted on

  23. Another great day out with the supporters bus, team!got the points at the Broch with as good as any league performance I have seen there. More points coming our way.

    Posted on

  24. The 25 is a magic number, made up with staff members. The team is using out of position players instead of the youngsters. The gesture to Rothes has backfired because of injury and work abscense. Keith's very young left back!was their man of the match against us,he made the difference. The club must trust them, and use them. They will fade and tire that's why we have sub's, its not just for swoap around when sending offs occur .

    Posted on

  25. I appreciate its the start of the season and there is no need to panic, yet, but why cant we field a team. we've sent boys on loan and cant muster a full bench and now we are back into suspension territory. Indiscipline is ill afforded with a full squad let alone when we have what appears to be a growing problem fielding a team, im glad I missed this one and frankly this isn't good enough, we need to know why we cannot field a team when we have 24/25 players signed, simple as that.

    Posted on

  26. Did well!at the start and were unlucky not to lead. But our pass and move side were simply overpowered by a fit large well coached cove team playing a tight defensive 442 . They could be league winners this year,I was impressed. We scored 2 good goals and maybe should have made it a face saving 4--3. Cove were having none of it . They play to the whistle and their fourth goal showed that. The blasted free kick at the end did not flatter them. The young player gave up matching a power run and took!the guy down on!the edge of the box. Lesson learned their, keep running and time your tackle ,hacking down is not clever or in the spirit of the sport. It's a cop out that wrecks your teams chances andcearns suspensions.! Telt

  27. Hello,

    We noticed in our time watching the Highland League last season that there wasn't much in the way of a written record kept of the league, at least one that we could find. So we wrote one!

    We have produced a 252-page diary of all the events of last season, including a list of friendly results, short reports on all competitive matches, club statistics, competition summaries, and fleshed it out with other bits and pieces which should be of interest to Highland League fans!

    The book is available through our publisher Lulu.com, and you can see our order page here - http://www.lulu.com/shop/shfl-diary/shfl-season-diary-201415/paperback/product-22277458.html

    Furthermore, any copies of the book ordered before Monday will be posted out for free. Use the code JLS15 to apply your discount!

  28. Jags website new season no cal or rallying words to the supporters, no Jackpot results and news weeks out of date. Is anyone running it, I saw a request for someone to operate it , no takers? Tweet is the only thing that updates the comment page does not work. Good job this sparsely used sitevis here eh?

    Posted on

  29. At last it begins ,cove again for starters, let's hope for a large turnout to support the Jags, it does make the difference. 200 in the canopy roaring them on inspires the players. Expect cove to be tight and hit us hard on the break. Early goals to winkle them out would help us but it will be tough. Being at least ninth to qualify for the upper division will be a priority!

    Posted on

  30. As bad as the Rothes game was the Montrose one was good, hopefull for this season but realistic about my expectations, onwards and upwards this season hopefully, Mon I Jags

    Posted on

  31. Never shy about my feelings of a split league, the Stables idea revamped with full behind the scenes support from the old brigade at the bunker.Are the Jags accepting of it and going flat out to be at least eight this last full season. Mmmmm

    Posted on

  32. Great news regardin championship winner Pele returnin but as the news was on the facebook on friday why has the official site not got anything up yet. Think the fans should be informed and theres plenty more like me wanting to know

    Posted on

  33. Looking. Forward to Pele çoming back, quality crosses and thunderous shooting from the wing, bit like Alex Stewart.

    Posted on

  34. Robert Scott, I've got high hopes for this lad, he is already a wonderful prospect, a delight to watch playing. I do hope he gets games and can claim a place in the team. The previous management ignored too many young players,if they had shown more faith in them they might still be in charge. The ringers pouring into the villages for cash will be swept away by a flood of young talent in a year or two.

    Posted on

  35. An absolute stonker of an announcement. Someone has dug well into their pockets for this to happen and we should all be grateful.

    Posted on

  36. Loyalty to the Jags, well done Chris Angus for leading the way in these trying times ofZillionaires sometimes succeeding in buying glory.Big thanks to our much over critised management for putting together this deal to keep our best player.So jagsfans let's hope for a good injury free pre season!and 500 fans on the terrace for the cove game to show our thanks to Chris's .

    Posted on

  37. Fantastic news thatnChros Angus has extended his contract with Buckie, loyalty is a rare thing nowadays.

    Posted on

  38. RIP James, really nice lad and a great supporter of the Jags

    Posted on

  39. Cheers guys the old girls a bit down at the moment and things could be better. But give me a committee who stay and stick!at it, over !people who flounce out the door and dedicate themselves to the ruin of the Jags at every turn. Bear and me were at last years Sportsman, quality night and value for money. He,s away to Canada and I,ll bet he wil be dissapointed l missing it over a buisness trip..The current crop of youngsters are the best I've seen since the Wills days. I am quite happy to watch the team grow and play attractive football. We suffered Huntly during the Five in a row, somthis Brora and Formartine strangling the league with stupid down will not put me off supporting the Jags. Don't hate Stables any more, shaker shaker what's the score. Ha

    Posted on

  40. It has been aired and rightly so, BCK Bear was quite right to point it out. Well done Martin

    Posted on

  41. Well done Martin, never thought I'd be saying that.

    Posted on

  42. Can't for the life of me post on the Official website, so could someone in contact with the club tell them that my latest 2 prizes of £10 &£100 pounds are donated back to the club as were my other two previous. Maybe this will get an airing on FN but can't think of shaker wanting to be the bearer of good news instead of lies about the club, away the Jags

    Posted on

  43. The ground and buildings are owned by and ring fenced as an asset not to be lost by whomever runs the football club. Whatever else is factual about ownership of the club is a mystery to me. I just support and look on. If they are finito I do something else!

    Posted on

  44. FBN in overdrive after the buckie paper edition this week.Christ even halfway round the world there is no end to the saga that is the Jags!!!.It is high time that the people of Buckie /Supporters club had some form of trust set up away from the football club to protect the club and the interests surrounding it. More and more the scottish government is pushing for some form of community trust involving football clubs and no wonder, this puts management of clubs into supporters hands and out of a single person or a group of individuals.The issue of the lease of btfc ?DO WE REALLY KNOW WHO OWNS THIS.The club are always looking for funding but how can people invest in the football club when so little information is forthcoming from the club about the lease, the developement association link with the club, by all accounts very little information is known about this and what the aims are, personnel gain, gain to the benefit of BTFC or both or other. Communication is terrible within our club -They make a rod for their own back. The lease of any business , sports organisation or other is the most important item to be concerned with, BTFC supporters and the town of buckie really need clarification on this issue which seems to remain behind a closed door. Bring this important issue to the table and lets all find out the status once and for all -Clarity,evidence and closure l not words is required around the lease from BTFC board management and lease holders /organisations/people involved.Unfortunately Buckie has a past history regarding Football club going to the wall or some other misdemeanours that has a negative effect that on the town and people ,All persons I am sure don't want to see this repeated with another SAVE THE JAGS SCHEME, It is imperative that our old club is protected and allowed to stabilise and prosper long into the future.

  45. Heard its already a done deal super chris angus to formatine big money move!

    Posted on

  46. Team shaping up fine,lots of player movement means we can expect maybe more senior players available to compliment the excellent youngsters. Will he stay or go, whatever happens I will respect his choice. The possibility of a swap is as good as a transfer fee. .

    Posted on

  47. Good to see young lads signing up, Wyness will hopefully be the right man to bring the youth on, could be done with one or two more signings, left back specifically IMO , and the question on everyone's tongue answered as well, will he stay or will he go?

    Posted on

  48. Just Hauntly to go, big win please to get the party started. P otY no doubts about who that is.!The doubt about him is he still our player next season. He has a year left, the signs are not good.I know there is a lot of cloak and dagger stuff to assemble a team. Lots of players wanting moves from different clubs?

    Posted on

  49. Booked my seat for he sportsman's dinner, last years one was s fabulous affair, taking the wife because big bad John Hartson is one of the speakers .That goal at Liverpool was a classic even an old Donmlike me appreciated that. Ahnwell at least she supports a hoops team, her highland league team is Keith for shame on me. Ha ha

    Posted on

  50. Great win at Flossie in the teeth of a gale a flouk and savage tackling from!a determined aggressive team.The fans sung and cheered the whole game and it was great to!see Benji Palmer back on the terrace where he belongs. There was a vacant scaffold in thee gutting shed. Ha no takers. Fraser man of the match and young Scott the new Micky MacPherson, this loon is something else.

    Posted on

  51. Good win at Lossie, they made it hard for us but we kept at it, ONI jags!!!!

    Posted on

  52. Flossie next, no quarter from a team who beat us by playing break fitba. They are out to rescue another aweful season let's hope the guys bear that in mind. Grantownmwas beautiful, so fluid and fast. I would not be keen to break up that team, but Angus is a must play and I do like Jay! Just needs to control his temper.

    Posted on

  53. Any team news for this weekend ? Must be good to have the dilemma of so much players on for. just now, last week no McKinnon, Angus, Munro, Cheyne yet we looked solid and comfortable in possession , bodes well hopefully

    Posted on

  54. Lots of chatter about players being released, I hate this time because if like all this current squad. Good luck ,find another club and thanks for being a Jag. Some locals going is the hardest of all to take, but the club will!win nothing dwelling on sentiment. The tutts will be voicing disapproval and concocting conspiracy theories ,but we have covered the local policy over and over. You have to fight and winma place, Jagsvare an open door club.

    Posted on

  55. Our management team are doing a brilliant job even other teams are saying we are doing great,we have to keep our best players and Chris Angus is pivotal to that by far the best player we have and hope he will be a jag for years to come

    Posted on

  56. Another great away win,this will fill the bus to Grant own and Flossie.The team is looking good for next season, a lot of hard work being done already

    Posted on

  57. Thanks for playing for the Jags Franny,your best ever goal was for Shearers team when we thrashed Keech 5_1 at the Viccy. Well done to the Jags for ripping the same outfit apart up at Sharnyhillocks,always good to beat them and ask the Chairman the score

    Posted on

  58. Just want to wish Franny all the best at Rothes, shame it didn't work out this time but im sure once you're back playing you'll be finding the net again

    Posted on

  59. Young Dunne is on a transfer request away from Rothes, I would like to see him at the Jags playing with Woody in the centre of defence. He is big hard and relatively local. For once beat Forres to a large defender, he has his rough spots but the Jags could make him the finished article. His old man is a great football man and would be an asset to the club as well ,in a scout or keeper coach role.

    Posted on

  61. just came across this site, is it running in tandem with the official Buckie Thistle site?
    Certainly seems a heckuva lot of confusion in the club since the Duncan era and I've found the official site unaccommodating.
    Work well for the Jags everyone.

    Posted on

  62. Jags played well at Turriff, great team performance and good passing football, a lot of positives to take from this game well played boys keep t up

    Posted on

  63. Another pr disaster, the floodlights will all need repair or replaced with new galvanised stations. The corrosion of one will mean they are all the same. No one at the club has a Scooby doo about health and safety. They can't keep putting their heads in the sand. The playing of a banned player smacks of incompetence at secretarial level, they have got to explain how this happened, I suspect the dumping of problems on to a single person and the failure to keep a diary of agendas are the cause. The bunker will hammer us for this, points and money and our reputation as being a leading club gone straight out the window.The club are competing with an up and coming Dons for the fans affections, they better realise this soon!

    Posted on

  64. Good positive appointment of Spider and co will keep things ticking along in the right direction.
    Again off the field the Club seems to stumble from 1 Pr issue to the next -Floodlights. By all accounts this happened last week yet not fixed.Surely the club can get their act together regarding public safety, there is more to the club than the founders club and free drink. I am hearing a Verbal statement was made allegedly regarding the debentures that nobody would be taking interest, as anybody seen a statement from the club to this effect??? or have they missed the PR boat again to resolve an issue that no other club would have dared try.

    Posted on

  65. Whats the extent of the damage to the floodlights, is it only a bent pole cause by the wind and weight of the light on a rusted tube, or is it worse and electrical damage as well. Will all stanchions have to be inspected and strengthened. Time for the bucket at the gate,it worked last time. On the bright side no midweek games until its sorted! Discuss!

    Posted on

  66. Jings crivens help ma boab, snaw on the wye again, its bound to pile up in Keith. If Stables asks for volenteers are we willing to shovel for the Jags?

    Posted on

  67. Ian Clarks passing is sad news for the Jags support,we have much to thank him for . He was passionate and great company at the games, and helped greatly in the finances and improvement of theJags. I hope a permanent tribute to his name can be made by a united club.

    Posted on

  68. When will we see you again, Keech on Saturday, seems a life time away. We Need this game to sharpen up for Formartine. With Bwowa out of the cup ,its any bodies now.The club has been starved of revenue for weeks now with the only cash coming in from the Jags Jackpot,that's why its so vital.

    Posted on

  69. Wi jst a few hours left of 2014 fits abodies highlights of the year.
    Mine are firstly the fantastic 3-1 win at Inverurie in the league cup semi and a superb hatrick fae Chris. secondly the Shire semi win at Formartine 3-0 was stunning and totally merrited. My last top game was Clach 1 Jags 6 in Spidey/ Lewis's 1st game in charge it could quite easy have been double figures.
    Players of the year would be the 2 Chris's Heggy and Angus. Hope we can get Scotty for another season as i think this would suit both us and him

    Posted on

  70. Great new signing, another fit looking quick across the park midfielder,just what the fans ordered.IMO the club is building in the correct fashion,a young football playing team to entertain us, and a team ready to fill the void when Bwowa stop dominating. There are a number of former players soon to be available,if they chose football over cash comforts,we could have an awesome team by the start of next season.

    Posted on

  71. Merry xmas to all supporters, players, staff and everyone associated with BTFC, another turbulent year behind us so hopefully we can get some stability in 2015, mon i jags!!!

    Posted on

  72. Enjoyed the post match interviews, Easton is an improvment, he asked the correct questions and displays a knowledgedge of the game. Mystery trialist? Scores in bounce game. Love secrets shock news in the Friday Scot!

    Posted on

  73. Well done the Buckie boys on a battling performance yesterday down to 10 men for 45 and they only had one chance but what a save fae Andy. Heggy was on top form and young winger Scotty is a class act . Bring on the next 3 games the jags are on a roll. Forget aboot the stuff aff the park come along and support a very good team who can only get better under Spiderman and Lewis

    Posted on

  74. Adequate, could and should have had a couple of more goals.The sending off was undefendable the upside is a young player will get a start if Grantown ever defrosts.Saw a couple of Rothes players I would like to come to the Jags,you don't have to spend money on chancers after a fast buck,keep most of what we've got and build on that.

    Posted on

  75. Bit in the paper about spider and Lewis continuing with the managers role to the end of the season. Suits me fine as their care no candidates to match our meager resources anyhoo.The new brand of football has been wonderful, and a real tonic for the regulars.The tactics being altered and quickly changed instead of being persisted with till the bitter end suits the squad. This weeks problem is a packed defence ,we score freely at better teams coming on to us,but the best way to attack and score enough goals when we are clearly on top has yet to be resolved,got a feeling Saturday might be special!and new, away the Jags

    Posted on

  76. First thing after I have paid!in bought my programme and gotten 2 raffle tickets,is to go over to!Lambie and wish him the very best starting a week!on Saturday. It will be fine to see the 59ers,great fans and the first to congratulate us in2010.

    Posted on

  77. Another great win lads, keep the winning run going.
    I remember that ref against Keith in the cup, that match was our annual trip to see the mighty jags, even the linesman on our side of the pitch couldn't believe how much added time he played !!!
    Any way on to some happier news...... We will be making our seasonal trip up to you on April 18th for the home game against Huntley and we are looking forward to meeting old friends and hopefully making some new ones.
    There will be 15 of us coming up and we can't thank Jammy and George enough for looking after us and making sure that we enjoy our weekend with yourselves.
    Good luck for the upcoming games and see you in April

  78. Another fine win, heaps of fans at the match. Tight game won by the better football team. Bad Reffing from!the wee child that cheated us against Keith in the cup. A wonder goal from!Scott and a tight last ten when Jay was harshly dealt with. Oh yes and both my jags lottery wins declined and returned to the club. Good day at the office a way the Jags

    Posted on

  79. Jags v Brora reserves, can we keep the goal machine quiet and nick the game. Wall of sound would help,no traffic problems get in your car and follow the Jags!

    Posted on

  80. Jags deliver again and some the Gigantors rumbled out and played the same old boot it up the park game. They were aided and abeted by DRoss how can a local born Forres ref be given this game I wondered,if he had anything about him the turn coat should have said no it will be perceived to be unfair. Anyhoo!the Jags turned them in inside out for virtually the whole game,we scored twice withn2 football goals and they can thank their reserve goalie for making several brilliant and a few lucky saves to keep the score down? This is a potential!winning squad who could still win a trophy, its time for the fans yo come back and support.120 up to Nairn next week,let's be having you. Away thevJags

  81. Another sore loss and Andres out the door hope we get a bob or two for him.Forres for the taking on Saturday, their midfield is back to full strength, so plenty of hump and thump in this game. Full backs pressing like they did at Clach is the way to play long ball hiesters?

  82. Wishing the fans going to the Broch a good night.The Jags can do it, we have won cup ties there before.Kyle and Franny back is good news , a youngster involved and a super sub we can use.

  83. I,m looking forward to a shout from the scaffold web page,bang up to date with everything that's negative about our great club,if you followed them everywhere one might pick up a rumour or two about how much work!and organisation gets done,and check your e mails for prize draw results

  87. Fair point, I do agree with that,on the other hand if I do ever win it I would decline the money for myself and return it to the club.This point can be raised at the Forum.Today I hope our blazers come and mix with the fans for a minute or two. There is a tendency to stick the nose in the trough and forget about us plebs.

  88. Can someone please tell me why the BTFC site is only advertising the Jags Jackpot winners up until July. This is totally unnacceptable to people who are in the draw and something the club needs to get their fingers out and get sorted!!

    Posted on

  89. There is a statement in the northern scot,it says enough .What do fans expect, a qualified coach is a must,we wil continue to be an open club in recruitment,new players are required, they will come. I lived through the negative damage of the 60s and 70,s. Club deserting supporters spread the mantra of where did all!the money go. Committee members were held up as potential!embezellers and no one wanted to get involved with running the club. History repeats itself.Unless you pay your Jags Jackpot and support the team home and away nothing much will!change. Some in Buckie do. Do walking away, but they don't let it rest do they?

  90. Been reading Pravda, all!posts are censored and only him here if there are issues to be answered. Not paying in and using a vantage point to watch the football for nothing is a talking point. Away fans just stare in misbelief, the behaviour has appeared on the club!website and been condemned officially. I post what the majority of fans think in my own name no hiding here.

  91. It's Thursday night and the official web site still has no report on the Fort William game. No update on the fans forum as to who will be answering questions now that there is no management team. But on the bright side there is a picture of Kasabian. Good to see the board have their priorities right.

  93. Noticed the scaffold stand was not full,attendance's do fall when the results are poor. When is this information theft going to be delt with,or will it be OK for me to bring my ladder and prop it against the chute.

  94. No!sense of satisfaction,the inevitable in football terms has happened. Thanks to the guys who have had to leave for the success they gave the club in the years past.No rush to fill!the post as far as I am concerned
    I like the Inverness Aberdeen set up, let's give the I C,s a while and see what happens.

    Posted on

  95. Things need to change drastically. That group of players do not look happy, they look very negative and afraid to express themselves. They are creating next to no chances and there is absolutely no entertainment for your entrance fee. The fan's don't seem to have any expectation now and their seems to be an air of apathy around the whole club. I do not think the result was an embarrasment, Fort William played very well, they moved the ball well, had some players with pace and were dangerous on the break. If they can turn in prerformances like that they surely will get more victories. But where has the spark went from Victoria Park. Are we going forward, not from my vantage point.

    Posted on

  96. Time for a change,enough good experienced men living locally to manage the club,although an Aberdeen connection must be kept Time to build something new not just rush in and destroy for the sake of it.Competent new players have also to arrive and others released to make way for them.

  97. Can anyone remember an Adam Wilson who played with the Jags a while back? What era was it I know the name but am not sure.Just curiosity from a conversation! Sun scoop sensation what's it all about? A song from the scaffold!

    Posted on

  101. Well over a 100 fans watched a poor display and the Jags losing out to a poorly skillful Hauntly team who ended up deserved winners. Coaching of set pieces is required thec playerhave not got a clue of where to stand and move to when attacking the ball. No one stays wide and covers the many overshot crosses as the strikers get in each others way.We are in a slump,some players not involved need to be released and the squad would improve with new blood of competent players with desire to!winmfor the fans in their hearts.

  102. Looking forward to a day out at the howling shed,usual hundred Spartans roaring doon the Fairmers fae muckledubs.Best clubby in the league.Their crowd is slipping a good bit but the Jags will!help them oot.Something like a whole squad to pick from, looking for Adams to star for us,he has been a bit quiet!

  108. Think we did ok considerin we had 8-10 lads oot. Yiv to mine Inverurie hav been consistently up there past few seasons. Ben and Harry have done well past couple of games. Young Drew also has done weel. 2 big games comin up against the Uni and Hauntly i think weel win baith and by this time next week the feel good factor will be back on the park onywye :D

    Posted on

  109. Two of the greatest players in the Jags recent history were small, Zander and Molby were easy enough to put the sweeties out of reach from.Young lads bulk up with getting games and applying themselves to getting faster and fitter in training.Some great defending on the ground by locos kept us at bay.There was a lack of understanding on the left of the defence this is where the telling balls were played from for locos to score goals from quality balls. This happens in football,we hat the bar and were denied fouls and had balls whipped away at the point of scoring,Baxter broughtboutba wonder save from the keeper.Not all!was bad.

    Posted on

  110. Old timer, suggesting the young lads are too light weight,I feel is ridiculous. Everyone sees football with differing opinions of course, but I am seeing a very disjointed team without proper guidance, a rudderless ship if you like. Don't see a game plan, don't see players knowing where their team mates will run to or what they will do.

    Posted on

  111. Thought the young lads played reasonably well today. Bit disappointed when the defence switched off and gave the guy a free header for the first goal. Lack of shots was worrying, but that seems to be a problem overall recently. They played some nice football at times when they kept the ball on the deck but resorted too often to high balls which the taller Loco's defence handled with ease. Now is the time for the more experienced players to get a grip and stop getting themselves suspended for soft bookings and sending offs. Promising as these young boys look they are too light weight to play week in week out when the heavy pitches arrive. Well done today lads, beaten but by no means disgraced,

    Posted on

  112. Not a classic by any means but a lot of effort by the team. Andy Lows crackshot off the bar and Andrzej beingshoved off the ball when through,plus a narrow miss meant nilpoints to the Jags.Lots to be hopeful about,Hauntly here I come. Good crowd because of the locos away support.They were complaining that they couldn,t get into the stand extension,I explained that you had to named Richard to get into it.

    Posted on

  113. Looking forward to the Loco,s game,and hopefully a lot of youngsters getting their chance to settle in and get extended runs,not just filling the fort till the last standers are fit again. The locos wingers need to be shut down and Gauldy watched like a hawk.We have had many great games between these sides,I hope the morns the same. No pressure. Away the Jags

    Posted on

  114. When are we going to get a grip with the disciplinary record
    Your never going to win games with ten men,or a weakened team due to suspensions !!

    Posted on

  115. Despite the result we had some really good performances at Cove, Ben and Harry came in and looked like they'd been playing every week, Kyle deputised well at right back against very good opposition, Drew came on and played really well in a midfield outnumbered, added to Lewis's MOM performance and it wasn't all bad. We are not creating enough clear chances but they will come, keep backing the team folks no one can question their efforts

  120. fitness will always be a bugbear for the Jags,we operate a split club with some local and many outside the town players.No manager has ever had the time and resources to solve the problem it was a problem for Gregg Carroll and his title winning teams as well.Discipline is a matter that managers can crack down on and inform the fans through the press why he is doing it. No committee should be interfering with team matters unless absolutely necessary.We are suffering for the expenditure of the last regime,its a long way back at times ,ask the 52 year veterans about that.

    Posted on

  121. Disapointing another defeat

    The deadest was not the disapointing part of the result but the fact we had no discipline it could have been so easy to have had

    Wood ,Stewart,Carrol,hegarty,Chene all sent off

    Ref was not good but that was may be a little lucky for us

    The off field capers seems to having a big effect on what's happening on the park

    About time management committe have a good look at what's going on or there will be no income coming through the gates lot of people not happy what's going on
    Fitness is a big issue and lack of pace

    Posted on

  122. some one left the gate open against Turra.We were due a bad one,not too discouraged.Defending has to get better and its time for Haker to waken up regards playing JC at full back,my wee mate Harry must be due a game. The manager can't be that vindictive towards young talent who can fill a position to let JC back into midfield.

  123. can you confirm where and time it said 2pm but will the manager not be there if he is prepairing the team and if they have hospitality that day where is it going to be held by the way who do we play that date

  126. There's a gate gan missing in Buckie
    An nae one knows far it go
    It was sawin in bits by some Smucky
    Fa left a hole in the fence at the Alamo

    The Bobbies are following the sawdust
    its trail is helping their case
    By Guy Fawkes its findings a must
    Or it wont be an open and shut case

    The skips are all being watched by a policemans
    They hope the robber wont make a bolt
    Oot hooses lean toos an auld caravans
    Are where the barriers being sought

    The nonsense then continues
    The pace of it never lags
    It feels like the never ending blues
    When you support the Famous Buckie Jags

    The skips are being searched by a policeman
    They hope the culprit wont make a bolt

  128. Gutted we got beat in another final but great achievment getting to 2 cup finals in a row with all matches away fae the Viccy. Well done Haker and lads the fans had a great day oot and great sing song at the game. Well done to Jammy and co for once again athin bein so well organised.
    Thought turning point was Heggy going off crocked at 2-1 to us. Up till then he was man of the match and nothing will convince me otherwise that had he still been on the park we wid have won.
    The experience will do the young lads the power of good and be even stronger next time

  129. Is the subject of the missing gate up for discussion or are police Scotland still investigate__ing the possibility of a o_fence taking place. Will it be an open and shut enquiry.Away for a fortnight and the first thing I hear at the final is the great gate mystery and its sudden disappearance Canna wait to get to the Viccy crime scene.

    Posted on

  130. made th final missed the first 20 minutes. The miracle of Kynoch Park nearly happened,but the team with the better forwards won the game.The Jags clearing of their lines was the cause of their downfall,the Broch are too sharpmto miss when balls land outside the six yard box when they should have been past the halfway line. Still the team are to be congratulated for getting to another final in the hardest of circumstances. Away theJags.

    FN stands for fitbanorth.com. It is a football site which was set up and is moderated by Lossie supporters. Once registered you can post on a wide range of football topics of which the highland league is most discussed, Each team has it's own thread and there are threads relating to upcoming games, Scottish cup. Aberdeenshire cup etc etc, Wide range of views published, Definiteley worth a look. Hope this helps.

  139. I would like to think the Jags back four against the Broch will have Woody in the centre with Macrae Heggy and S Wood slotted in. The new goalie will need to have a settled side for him to slot into for the final.I hope unfit players are not rushed back to quickly,the Broch can kill us with pace. A draw and no bookings would be a good result,warm up final games can be done moralising .

    Posted on

  147. can't for the life of me agree with FAJ that all the fault of the clubs problems is down to the board of the club.Old fears I had about the calibre of some of them have been dispelled by the mountain of barriers they had put in their way They have dug in and are providing the club corporate and supporters needs as quickly as they can,at no cost to the support above and beyond what they want to contribute as individuals.This season some pretty good players have come to the club. The two walkouts have not stopped the progress of our fine young squad. Sure everything ain't puppy's and chocolates,but the bad Buckie habit of inventing a blame culture is not helping.Flouncing away and disgracing the club in the press are not the hallmarks of real supporters IMO.I and other fans travel 40/60 miles to see home games,don't bring the club down by chasing off the guys willing to try to make a difference.Northern oils could still uproot and go to their original choice of Lossiemouth then where would we be. Away the Jags

  148. That was a great performance by the Jags tonight especially the Young players-Well done. However you the board need to get sorted out -we want all this carry on at an end once and for all. Players deserve more supporters at the games and they wont get it until you lot find an ending to all this negative stuff that makes a mockery of our club,Not your club because you dont seem to care about this.

  151. Great run up to Wick,well organised even though the fe/chef off without me at the end.Ha phone call sorted that out viva de mobile.The score was about right,we had no punch up front poorball gathering and deplorable shooting was the order of the day.Our midfield and defence held out for as long as they could but WIck kept the whip hand .Nice to see a league club firing on all cylinders.ARound 400 in the ground,lots of family's,a full stand of corporates.It makes our disfunctional troubles look what they are,a needless battle of egos and a damp squib ofan arguement that gets its fuse blown on every other week.

    Posted on

  152. question for the statto,s,Mainsers refusal to help out by playing in the cup final compounds by Tessie not being available.What now who can we sign to play for us perhaps for a one night stand if necessary.I am reminded of the stroke Forres pulled when Bobby Clark shut us out at Elgin allowing them to score and win the league cup with one shot on target.Does the panel think the Jags should sink to such murky depths_____eh?

  154. Dessie played a blinder against cove at the walls come tumbling doon,Marra final at Turra.I,m sure the bag of spuds will do the business,its up to our defenders to commucate and don't play silly pass backs instead of turning and passing the ball.A new goalie is a priority,Bell to Keith was not such a smart move after all. Still the last tilt at the windmill has happened,nothing else can hurt us now,win the final and get as much young players tried out in the league. THat will dee me fine ,roll on the Shield and away the Jags.

    Posted on

  162. Mainser has a wages dispute with the board,his football employers.No informative letter of resignation has been published,so I presume a contracted players status is perhaps not clear,and only his absence from training and refusal to play will bring about a statement from the club. We will miss the greatest goalkeeper in the clubs history,but it won't effect my loyalty to theJags.

    Posted on

  163. Item 4 of Buckie Thistle's 'Supporters Charter' states:

    Make supporters aware of any major changes at the club at the earliest opportunity either by the club website, programme or local press

    Surely the rumoured departure of Mainser comes under this category.

    It's pretty poor that with less than a week to go before an important cup game, no one from the Club has so far bothered to practice what they preach and consider the supporters.

    The support is becoming increasingly disillusioned at the lack of information.

    So how about an official statement, this wall of silence is doing no favours to anybody.

  169. Well done on the win yesterday at Rothes nivir an easy hunting ground for the Jags
    But more concerning for the Jags fans is the rumours that we didna have Drew on the teamlines and he came on as a sub. Par for the course from Buckie is the silence from the club. The fans deserve to know if its true or not but as usual weer the last to find oot

  170. Great away support cheered on the Jags to a well deserved win at Sharnyhillocks. The Shipard in the stand had to watch his flock chase shadows. The team missed a lot of chances to put it out of sight early on. 3great saves from Mainser meant that the spectacular second goal from Scotty finished off the tie. Im off to the Smoke for a wedding and holiday so I will miss the Rothes and Formartine games. Injury to our defenders will make it a huge ask at the Formers. Thanks to the Jags for another good night on the road . away the Jags

  172. well now is the time to get this club back on the road weve had three years of hell if we are a community club as the president said on the website before we need the function hall the the hospitality place and the team doing well we the fans only want a good side each year, and I agree that people will only join the hall if there is cash put forward from
    whoever runs the function hall the supporters club who have been working hard to keep it going give them a say the fans I asked to have a meeting on what we can do just got no enthusiasm from anyone. we should be getting xmas fundraising and the summer 2015 ideas on the go shortly so come on you people who matter get yer fingers oot im sure every Buckie fan wants that

    Posted on

  173. The hall has become irrelevant,the club can't back trak and begin to use it again,they have been forced to produce alternative food and drink and corporate tax litys.THe leverage of toilet facilities which could have found us ejected from the Scottisy cup ,has also been addressed. The amount of debt the club may encounter in purchasing it would prohibit its use. the stand will last a year or two yet?way the Jags

    Posted on

  174. I doubt much supporters clubs have helped finance players and facilities in one year. The need to engage the support is not from a complaining pont of view but to ascertain the relationship between the hall and the club, from the clubs perspective, apologise if you thought it was a gripe Martin but I want to know where , if I spend it, my money's going

  175. I can never quite understand this need to ken fit its ah aboot. The teams position and form is that of a club rebuilding the playing and corporate side of the buisness. We are at the moment 250 regular as they can be(home and away) supporters. We can best serve the club by etting our mates and family to come along to games and roar the Jags on. If we tick off this board and they decide to flounce out the door taking their toys with them then we really will kill the club forever.We are no better or less informed than any other club, as can be seen from the Rothes example , hounding folk trying to do their best will never make a structured sport like a football club better. Away the jags.

    Posted on

  176. Good to hear the scaffold is down, I believe the club needs to engage the supporters, a lot of information not getting out and whispers and word of mouth not adequate. We need to know where we are and should we be worried, the team, management and the supporters are doing their bit the board needs to tell us what's happening.

  178. Looking forward to the trip to SHarnyhillocks,my Forres spy,s in the camp described them as being rough and ordinary with the usual big boot it up the park to the striker.Cup tie fitba,canna wait for the Jags to give us more of what we saw on Saturday.

  181. Nae scaffold and nae needless passbacks, great team performance ,solid at the back, graft in the middle and some great forward passing moves and wide play. This match will be remembered , Kriss Angus is an awesome player, his displays and club loyalty will mark him down as a Jags great,away the Jags

  183. missed the game because I was held over at work.FOrmartine are a way ahead of us and after the mess at the Mosset,not a result.I feel we have a real chance to turn over the Narnia,s.Gethens has stopped sulking and started scoring again.TAking the chances against their less than spectacular defenders will see the team get there,away the Jags

  184. I have found the latest Jags scoop in the Squeak online.Same old battle of the boards.I received my leaflets at the Clach game,found them to be a fair account of he state of affairs between the waring parties.If they were to kiss and make up would more folk from BUckie bother to go Dougie.The away support is holding up well..

  185. The shed scaffold,its not tagged nor is the ladder to the platform guarded.THe safety police would still have anyone for taking down the offending object,unless you have a leggoland card.Any publicity is good publicity,is it a pig and jam or an tea time tabliod exclusive.

  186. The Jags in the Press AGAIN today. Simply sick of it, sort it out. Gates well down and will get worse if this continues. And another thing, is that scaffold in the shed ever coming down so we can see the bloomin games.

    Posted on

  187. Walloped good and proper, the honey monsters at Forres totaly dominated the game. Our young team were no where near physical or big enough to compete against the stiff wind.A wind effect fluke then a correct sending off sealed the teams fate. When is Heggy going to realise he is a marked man and cant get away with dangerous play. Funny enough when it came to football we held our own for a good while with a few good moves. Krissy was a big miss today as was Jay. I think Shaun Wood and Carrol would have made better starts the original line up was too inexperienced to live with Forres in any conditions. Back next week for mopre though, away the Jags

    Posted on

  188. Went to the Gows v Cans kickathon last night.Both teams played dower541 formations. Knighty was dropped in favour of a new forces goalkeeper and big Fraser was in the crowd not cheering .Nae shaker for Lossie,so the crowd size was smaller than usual.The penalty shoot out was very one sided Lossie sclaffed and missed 2 and biscuits put his and over the bar and intake the harbour.Forres hammered 4 crackers into the net,so lesson for Jags is to keep their hands doon and dinna stick their legs oot.Give Mainser the day off,away the Jags.

  189. looking forward to seeing the Jags play in the Shire cup at Sharnyhillocks. Ewans two yellows means that he will be to play?.I bet it will be a tough match,they love to beat us any way they can. What's the score? No Chivas Regal in the cup I hope,away theJags

  190. Great start to the season boys, keep it up !!!
    See you when we make our annual trip up in the new year.355

    Posted on

  191. A real game of two halves,Mainsers saved us as usual,what a goalie he still is.5 minutes of football at last from the JAgs meant we went in one one at half time,4--0 down would not have been flattering Clach.The Jags came roaring back into it in the second half. They exploited the gap between Gordy Mo and the left back easy street at last.Top marks for Heggy and Lewis and And two strikers goals from Andri,bring on the Cans,away the Jags

    Posted on

  192. One team played the game the other just played at it.Vale got an early break then hoofed it up the park as quick as they could.COnstant diving and aggressive appeals were their modus operandi for the rest of the game. a brilliant goal from Lowser got us back into it.GOt to say he starting line up was wrong.THe new lad bedded in well,teamed up with a more able striker the goals will come.Spider was lucky not to get sent off for lifting his hand to VAle players deliberately provoking him,the manager has got to stop him.

    Posted on

  193. Biggest test to date with the VAle coming to town on Wed.JJU bossed us akbout the last time we played them at the Viccy.WE fell asleep at the end and lost the game.its going to be all about us taking our chances and leaving them gasping,close to call game as always.away the Jags.

    Posted on

  194. Great start to the season for the boys. TBH in the home friendlies i saw there was something in the young lads display that encouraged me. Good to see strikers Franny and Gauldy snr in amongst the goals early on. 2 big home games comin up if we can get 4 or even 6 points what a start it will be

    Posted on

  195. The Norden Scrote mentions Heggy as being back for the Jags. Really good news if true,the folk at Forres think he is awesome and say he was the reason for our two great wins at the Mosset.

    Posted on

  196. Wonderful result for our young team at the rainbows end.SHarnyhillocks next the big bang theory of blootring the ball up the park to play in Ewan will be another stern test. I will get to this game and can't wait,away the Jags.

  197. Time for a new season, not much expected but hopefully like last season the players can surprise us with a cup run, all the best to the players , the management, the board and the supporters this season, forward not backward, mon I jags!!!!!

  199. A good question Martin.Having been to the four hame pre season matches so far i hinna seen him. I fear hes gone but it wid be good if we were told officially.

    Posted on

  200. Martin, I feel your comment "the funky cuckoo's nest" is very uncalled for and saying Jags fans should not use the function hall is not helpful either. If the function hall reopens, it is up to fans to choose where they go. I am on neither side of the fence on the politics of the club, but cannot believe how quickly the hard work, committment and success of Mark and Murray has been forgotten. If all fans did a quarter of the work those two lads did, Buckie would be some club. I wish our current board all the best and hope they can get us back on track, we cannot look back, but please, we must surely remain respectful to the Duncans, not for the trophies, but for the 24/7 they gave to Buckie Thistle for ten years. I hope the current administration give us the same effort

  202. Poor show from Deveronside,not the power they once were.Great to see some old hoops back in the shirt to make up the numbers .Shewan was man of the match,DArcy was twice the player he was,ha still floats in a good corner though.NIce work out for the local lads,there is a vacancy in the team for Jay,s minder,Ben has filled out nicely for that job.ANew Souter and CAts combination would suit the team well.away the jags²018

    Posted on

  203. The EWan saga /rumour about Jags after him seems to have rebuked by Keech fc claiming that its MIkes hearts desire to play for them and no one else. WEcould do with him but not at any price,let's hope the board don't get in in the neck for not being able to sign some one committed elsewhere.

    Posted on

  204. Can't agree the Funky was full nearly every saturday with ordinary punters. It has been a long time since it was anywhere near full on a saturday with ordinary punters. I was there for most home games last season and it is not all down to the way the team is/was playing that accounted for the decline. A bunch of people who used to frequent choose to go elsewhere. It suited my travel arrangements to continue go there.
    It absolutely makes sense to get the infrastructure sorted first.

    Posted on

  205. I believe the normal punters will have access as well, corporate will be separate , last discussions certainly led me to believe that

    Posted on

  206. you have a point about the ground being a priority above the team.THe funky cuckoos nest has shot itself in the foot because both the owners failure to compromise.IT is now redundant and should not b used by JAgs fans during match days. the board have risen to the challenge oh having to provide facilitys in duplicate and have to be applauded for that.Its up to the fans to sponsor and support team fund raising to help have increase the finances of the club.We can't call compete with the millionaires yet but our time will come.away the jags

    Posted on

  207. Agree with needing new players however we need money for that purchase, As I have said before it is up to the board to generate the funds to allow the coaching staff to identify possible signing target, I am not convinced with the lack of info coming out of the club what our priority is the ground or the team, I can live with the lack of players if it means the ground is finished this season but I am not convinced either will happen, to much faith put on corporate hospitality. What about the ordinary punter and the money they bring in on a sat, If you remember the Funky was full nearly every sat with the ordinary punter. Having said all that apart from the president and maybe 1 or 2 others I cant see our board generating funds can you?

    Posted on

  208. I agree the lack of new players is a bit disappointing some faces are back whom I thought would be released,clogging up the system and blocking the path of already tested good young players is not progress. jay is only with us for a year, even less if his future means him moving out of the area.WE need new faces for the future, even NIna Myskow would agree with that.

    Posted on

  209. Wi just 3 weeks to the start of the season weve just made 1 signing Jay Cheyne.Weve lost oor best attacking option in Aaron. Is there any prospect of us signing new players. I thought us having the prospect of playing Rangers we would have got a couple of good players in. Maybe we dinna have money to sign players as the off field work taks money thats fair enuf but dont the fans deserve to cane this ?? If so why nae get some youths in . The Buckie High School seniors have won everything goin surely some o them must be as good as some o the players we have.
    The last 10 league games fae last season we won one match so if we dinna get ony players in weel be playing for a bottom 5 spot

  210. Glad to hear of the old tea hut getting a refurb, its been much needed, I for one am fed up of going hungry at halftime. In my early dike jumping days{steady}the funds availiable always went to the Jags, Wully Milne and a very young Annie were the hosts at tea shack and the seats for the old folk were still in the enclosure. Good luck to the venture and a big thanks for those who made it possible. Away the Jags

    Posted on

  211. Can't understand the hullabaloo and bruha ha that blows up every time the jags have a fund raiser in the shape of an exhibition match against senior sides. the myth of the hard up pensioner has long since evaporated.football is an entertainment,do the comsgames firms do discounts,don't think so.RAngers are a huge draw and don't come cheap.

    Posted on

  212. I agree that concessions shouldve been in place, some for children and senior citizens, the club needs to maximise monies from this an maybe shouldve allowed the supporters club the concession tickets for distribution, i still think we will get a decent crowd its just a pity most of them wont be back throughout the season

    Posted on

  213. Good points far awa jag, but I think the board felt they would get a full house for this game. There would be a large number of Rangers fans within a 60 mile radius that may come to the game. If they had a concession, the more kids that went, the more they would lose. Genius eh !

    Posted on

  214. I think 10 and 5 would have been more like it, You could end up having less gates receipts, Dont forget Rangers have no big stars and are not a premier league side, any other first div side would have been normal price. Greed and maybe shortage of cash? for funds that may affect the crowd nos

  215. Dougie aye they need money but I still think its a wee bit stiff

    Posted on

  216. Totally agree Thistlesting, many people in Buckie thinking the same. Absolute disgrace charging kids £15 for a friendly or any game for that matter. Are we so in need of finance??

    Posted on

  217. I am all for Buckie Thistle earning some much needed revenue, but I was very disappointed to hear that my grandchildren were charged £15 each for their Buckie v Rangers tickets, with no concession. These kids also visit Pittodrie on occasion and have a cheaper admission charge for a Premiership fixture. This is not the Glamorous Rangers of years ago, and it is only a pre season fitness exercise. Who made the no concession decision. I feel glamour games are an opportunity to get youngsters to Victoria Park and go on to be long term Jags fans.

  218. Aaron Conway will be a big miss to the club, a quality player with a terrific touch and great deadball skills. The "Buckie Beckham" for sure. Its up to the management to nurture his talents in other players at the club, practice makes it perfect. I dont think there is a player on offer we could afford who will give the team so much ability. Best of luck to him if he gets offshore, I fully understand the lads need to secure his future and enjoy the benefits of a well paid secure job.Thanks for a great performance in the drawen final with Clach, he responded to the fantastic support from the byre and played his part in the comeback.Away the Jags

  222. Great start to the season to see my two favourite teams on the same pitch, I expects a great early season crowd and wish Smaller all the best for his big day. He is a grand lad to talk to about the game, has been a great servant to our club and I ken the fans will turn out for him. His best moment for me was that equaliser which saved our butts against the Vale at Hauntly in the Shire cup final. We were good at shoot outs then, ha, nae disrespect to the current lads for their brave efforts against Clach.Away the Jags

  224. Great final one of the best I have ever seen, and thats been a fair few. Its was a privillage to share the shed with with a magnificent Jags support in full voice. Shewan and Marra made almost as good choir masters as they did players.The Clach fans were very generous and helped to make it a great day for football. Its a pity we did not just edge it in extra time, winning the big two will be difficult in the next few years because of the moey glut at a few favoured clubs. I will be back next season and for a long time to come. Well done to the lads of the team Desire. away the Jags

  227. Wowe was that not the best game I ever did see between the Banffshire Giants. The lads were tired and it showed a bit, nothing to get dissapointed about, the final can and will be a distraction for the team. Bit worrying is the lack of form from the strikers, I am of the opinion that Conway should be pitched into the team next week to give us a lift and himself 90 minutes to sharpen up and show he can still do a job although his future seems elsewhere. Another rotten performance from a referee who cant see a foul right in font of his eyes. Its just as well that none of the players lost it, and missed out the big one because of indiscipline. Away the Jags

  228. Now for the double header against Deveronfale,hah this pair of xmas fixtures would normaly have my excitometer pumping, not so much now with the final in full view. Still I will be at both games crossing my fingers the squad come through unscathed and availiable. I would not blame the manager for squad rotation to rest up some players.See you all on Saturday, away the Jags

  229. Thanks Haker and the team for the win yesterday. Have seen a few great wins there the 2-1 the Qualifying Cup semi win in 2003, the Couttsy show when we won 6-1, and the 4-0 fan we were going for oor 2nd league but yesterday was the best. What a performance by the team and in Chris we have one of the best players in the league.
    Canna wait for the final and the brilliant Jags support to see us claim the League Cup

    Posted on

  230. Simply stunning display's by Chris Angus and the Woodsters have got the team into another final. The Tankers tried every way in and found all the doors locked, eventually tripping over ones own feet gave them an undeserved penalty. This has been a wonderful cup run, tough games won with honour at some of the leagues hardest grounds. The squad of players have shown great character and deserve a monster of a support at the final. Lets hope the byre at Sharnyhillocks has had a good power wash doon and we enjoy a wonderful days fitba against our old friends Clach. Away the Jags this is the headlines we want to see.

Nice one still its onlt a second division HFL team we were playing, as some would have it.Really looking forward to the game at the Tankers , lets hope the media get something positive and sucsessful to print about the Jags.

Once again we have a media fest with our club continuing is reign of the biggest laughing stock in the SHFL, when are we going to see someone make a decision that is for the good of BTFC and not themselves! Surely the club and the hall are not sticks to beat folk with, the way ahead is closed and I for one don't want a repeat of this again, move on folks

    Posted on

  235. Not the best result at sunny Nairnia but because our team did not play to the whistle, we lost the game. I saw the ball was cleary running over and coming in again, deffo a mistake by a subdued linesman, who was visibly shaken by what his mistake had caused. A draw at the would be number two's would not have been a bad or an unfair result. Still different ball game at Inveruruie, lets hope the discipline holds up against Keith and we dont lose players for avoidable bookings. away the Jags

    Posted on

  236. Looking forward to the Nairn game tomorrow, it will be nice to see some football instead of this weeks roarin and greeting and catawalling in the papers. With Aberdeen roaring back its time all sides in the club took notice of this, Pittodrie will be a welcome haven of peace to fans truly sick of the current situation.On the brighter side I hope the visiting fans from Northampton have a great time. When I was a nipper loads of folk left Buckie for Corby Steel works, I'm wondering if any of the folk coming up have connections with them. I remember the Murray family Seaview and the Kemps from Buckpool, we lost a player of greaT potential when Willie Kemp left town, away the Jags

  237. Fine turn oot from the Jags suport, easily out numbering and definetlyout shouting the Forres pandrop crunchers in the stand-ha fine folk really.We should have won it in the 90 but a wee foul giving them a chance to hoist yet another cross towards the space station caught us out. The Jags came roaring back in the second period of xtra time and won the game twice . Great performances from our defenders, Woody was knackered but put in a great shift.Andy Low scored two fine goals and stonewall penalty according to the Lino was put away by Aaron. Another spring day oot tae the Tankers and a chance of a final, well done the team. away the Jags

    Posted on

  238. Hoping for a big turn oot at the Mossest to howl on the Jags, Forres very strong and doing their usual late season rally to try and snare a cup, they have managed this on at least four occasions in recent seasons, very hard game but the Jags fighting spitit will help see them through, penalty's a distinct possibility, and lighting to strike twice as we did them a few seasons back. OPen hoose at no 41 if the Jags make it all welcome , only whisky availiable for the gentlemen--away the Jags

  244. Jamie Shewan , perfect role model for all the up and coming young Buckie loons who aspire to play for their home town team. Shewan never gave less than 100 per cent and certainly did not play for the money. Great career Jamie, the Highland League will miss you. Hope you are not lost to the game and can find time to coach local loons.

  249. Had a great night out at the Sportsmans, D Mac spoke wonderfully well, his Clough impersonations to his storie telling about the great man were hilarious and seriously accurate. Left with a few quid in my pocket because I did not get carried away with the auction , it went a bit past the sweet spot for me, I would have loved to have bought a photograph of the clean sweep team with Jimmy Thains name appened to it , Van Pearshaped from Munch U did not have a lot of meaning for me, went for a good price though. Just a thought about the lack of Jags memorabilia, when plenty could be prepared for such events, give the fans what they need, away the Jags

  250. bck bear, how often have you see our centre midfield players play a ball into the the feet of the forwards, i watched the under 20s on monday they played a really good passing game, never saw one high ball all night, the ball was played out from the full backs every time and passed through the team and it was good to see and very effective as well

    Posted on

  251. To Buckiefan, if all the crosses are going to the back post, should our strikers, or at least one of them not be smart enough to observe and understand and on occasion position themselves or lurk about in that general area at least in open play. I could understand that at corners they may be being used to pull defenders away to let Zico and Lewis in about.
    Almost laughed at the pumpin the high ball comment. Did we not also complain about that when both Shearer and Carroll were in charge.

  256. Ive been away working and have just learned of the passing of James, shocked to the core. James was a great Jags supporter, liked by the crowd , always full of fun and quick to burst into a chorus of the steaming song. He will be remembered by his fellow Jagsfans for a long time. I am as upset about this as I was for Norman and Bunny a couple of years back. I hope James family cope with his loss and keep coming along to shout on the Jags. Great win over the Loco's will be seen as a suitable memorial to our passing friend. Away the Jags

  257. A fine tribute to Jamie on here.
    I was great pals wi him and gutted that top Jags fan Jamie has gone. Some great memories of following the Jags at home games and away.
    The away Scottish Cup games at the likes of Morton, Bo'Ness and East Stirlingshire were always a great day oot. So fitting as weel to see his Loon Liam get young supporter of the year made his dad very proud.
    RIP Jags legend Jamie Murray

  258. Best wishes to Gary MacNamee of Keith, hope he has a very speedy and successful recovery after the horrible injury sustained in today's game.
    My thoughts also go out to Chris Hegarty who did not deserve the reaction from Darren Still and other Keith officials. The lad probably feels terrible even though he was not to blame.
    This was two brave committed players going for a 50/50 ball each not giving any quarter. To suggest that there was any malice in the challenge is purely untrue. If Chris had hesitated in the challenge, he could have been the one carried off which often happens when backing out of a tackle.
    I was very disappointed with Mr Still who was openly shouting terrible insults at Buckie Supporters, not concerned that there were a few children nearby. If this happened in the Scottish Premiership, the manager involved would be in the Stand for a very long time, is the Highland League immume from these regulations.
    He infuriated Buckie fans who started shouting back, this could have led to sticky situation. A manager cannot and should not get involved with supporters.
    I would have liked to have seen him go to the player and try to reassure and comfort him rather than exchanging unpleasantries and insinuating blame.
    I for one will never set foot in Kynoch Park again.
    But the important thing, get well very soon Gary, you showed real desire and courage in the challenge.

  259. Good to get through a tough away tie, we made it hard for ourselves but in honesty we would have been robbed hadn't we won what was a very comfortable game for 65 minutes. Hopefully get a favourable home tie next round.
    Great to hear that Smallers recovery is going well, hurry back pal

  260. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for there messages of support over the last few weeks. It has been very much appreciated by not only me but my family as well.
    I am home now and doing fantastically well and feeling great.
    Finally best of luck to the lads tomorrow in the scottish cup. Am sure we'll get a positive result!

  261. Great to hear that Smaller has had his operation and hope it works out well for him and everything goes well, all the best Kevin, hope to see you back at the Vicky soon

  262. Great performance at the weekend and with a least three key players missing, 7points from that start is not a bad return, well done boys keep it going.

  263. Well done to the team for the performance up at Forres, thats more like it,and as someone said on the bus on the way home, good to be talking about the football and not the stuff going on off it,long may it continue. Away the Jags.

    Posted on

  264. RIP Joe Jappy, Jags Legend, also best wishes to Kevin Small.
    Nothing but praise for the Jags today, defended superbly, had some excellent passages of play, especially in the first half. A real sense of togetherness about the team. No urgency to hit the long ball today. Well done to all the players and Mr Hake and his coaching staff!

    Posted on

  265. All the very best to Kevin Small after his operation , life changing hopefully. RIP Joe Jappy as well, every club needs folk like Joe, huge miss for the club

  266. Hopefully we can get a draw or better at Mosset this weekend, if i was offered 5 points from this start i would have taken it gladly.Mon i jags!!!

    Posted on

  267. Good game today and we seem to be able to compete well against the teams who supposedly could win the league. Two really nice goals today by The Jags and we can consider ourselves very unlucky with the own goal, however I felt Louie was very unlucky as instinct makes a defender try to clear the ball.
    No personnel changes are needed in this team, they all have ability.
    Again, I was very disappointed with the amount of balls we launched straight up to our opponents' centre halfs, this seems a big problem for Buckie and I would dearly love Mr Hake to work hard to eliminate this play. It equates to just giving our opponents the ball to come back at us. We have good skill in midfield with Hegarty, Conway and Munro but we bypass them too often to lump the ball forward. Our strikers are not pacey so will rarely get these balls. Nicky made a good play with the ball at his feet beating three defenders and hitting a good shot on target, but this opportunities are not coming his way often enough.
    A special mention must go to young Harry, who is just superb!!
    Joe had a few very good touches today but seems to be well short of fitness and seemed to be blowing hard after only twenty minutes, we need him fitter (though I must say he was chasing lost cause balls too often).
    Spider did not let us down, again picking up his needless booking and perhaps could have been red carded for shouting at the officials from the sub bench near the end. I really cannot understand the lad!
    an altogether great game though, roll on the next game.

  268. go tae all the games no consistency nikki smith has scored mare goals than any of the strikers but is put on the bench thats my opinion long season ahead

    Posted on

  269. Joseph,are you for real.do ye actually go the games cos if ye did you will hae noticed that there is a young left back playing thats maybe why Bob Duncans nae playing.Fitba is a aboot opinions but some folk come on here saying play young players and fan they dee they ask why.

    Posted on

  270. Whats happened to nikki smith and bob duncan Nikki scored 4 goals in the pre season games and now he finds himself on the bench ?? has Bob Duncan another one who is fed up and left ?? Whats going on?

    Posted on

  271. I think we have to be realistic, the players that we have are not going to get an abundance of goals, the stats prove that, however if there is a real effort then we should at least recognise this instead of casting a critical eye, competition is good and i will agree that there comes a point when the goals are not going in we need to change things but we are only 4 games in and so far lost 2 games to two of the top teams at their grounds, surely the team deserve a bit more patience than the continual call for changes.

    Posted on

  272. in gary hake interview after the brora game he said we could have won the game if we had taken our chances, the lads he is playin up front are nae deein the job, lets try givin somebody else a chance, we keep playin the same 2 players and they are nae gettin the goals, time ti change it and give other players a chance

    Posted on

  273. I like your comment Andrew and agree with a lot of what you said, and I personally think our whole squad are good players. I have also really enjoyed the past two wins. I just don't think we are getting the best out of all the players due to the style we are playing. It has to be said we carried a bit of luck in both games. Vale and Fraserburgh moved the ball about well and I just don't see why we cannot play with a bit more finesse instead of just the dogged determination & fighting qualties we have shown along with some top class goalkeeping. I really don't want to come across as negative. If we could could move the ball better instead of hopeful long balls to isolated players, we could surprise all the title contenders. But for now winning is sweet!

    Posted on

  274. Dinna get the negative comments. Weve probably won as much home matches past 4days than we have in whole of 2013.
    4 new players Heggy, Conway, Harry and Fraser have all enhanced team bigtime. We now have players in the team like Conway and Heggy that can shoot fae distance and get the ballon target.
    Am optimistic we get well up the table maybe top 5 would asking too much but we can certainly be best of the rest

    Posted on

  275. Agree wi Thistlesting, it is a hard task for oor strikers wi the service ther gettin. Fan we wis two up yesterday it widv been easier if we quid hiv strung twa three passes the gither and made the Broch chase it, bit we continually booted the ball back tae them when we had it. But it was a win against a good side, hope we keep it up, mon i Jags!

    Posted on

  276. I also agree with Auldyin, I personally don't think the loan player is ahead of what we have. However, I feel we could play Cammy Keith up front and he would struggle. Our continual punts forward to the front players to fight for against big centre halfs will never work. We need to try to hold the ball better. There does not seem to be any passing mentality put into the team. No striker has scored any of our last three goals v Vale & Broch. Loved the fighting quality today and good win, but it wasn't pretty to watch by any means. We need to encorage holding the ball better and play the simple pass rather than hitting long hopeful balls ALL the time.

    Posted on

  277. Settle doon lads ! Another good win today against a team that has aspirations of a top 4 finish. Canna wait for next week noo, lets get behind the team an get a few points in the bag.

  278. Well we will see where he ends up playing and you can come back and tell me i was wrong.

  279. great display fae the jags the day although we let the broch back into the game at 2 0 good defendin again back 4 played well as did the midfield,arron conway man of the match by a mile, need more upfront

    Posted on

  280. Auld yin, I believe that Shand was placed on the transfer list, according to the .net site anyway, players move unfortunately but it's very much a one in out situation it seems just now, more importantly we have seen a good victory on Wednesday and hopefully we move forward after that.

    Posted on

  281. yes david leslie its all about opinions and i totally agree with the auldyin good prospect never given a chance

    Posted on

  282. Auld yin, you might have seen more games than me over the last few seasons, but I have certainly seen a different player playing than the one you describe, of course it's all about opinions.

    Posted on

  283. Lets nae jump the gun till we see what happens innite , stranger things have happened. A win against the Vale might set us up for a good run o form.

    Posted on

  284. I agree with buckie fan, too many of our young players are sitting on the bench and sometimes only getting 10 minutes playing time. They get no on field experience and it must be disheartening for them. No wonder the likes of Aaron Shand , a good prospect, good distributor of the ball, and good at reading the game, asked to be placed on the transfer list. He could be the first of more wanting away.

    Posted on

  285. cant believe how we are treating our young players, they have trained twice a week some of them for 2 seasons sometimes playing, sitting on the bench then we take in a player on loan for 3 months and he gets games ahead of the lads who have served there time here it's a disgrace at least give them a proper chance to prove themselves, yesterday at wick we started with the loan player ( not his fault) and left a player on the bench that we have spent a lot of money to bring back here, dont know what the thinking is behind it, when he goes back to elgin in 3 months time do we then ask the youngsters to then step in and play after being ignored, end of rant

  292. Could I pass on my congratulations to all who took part in yesterday’s bike run from Aviemore to Buckie, from the guys in the support vehicles to the ones that put the effort in on the bikes. The enthusiasm, camaraderie and commitment of everyone were second to none. I for one had a great day and would like to thank you for asking me along. Look forward to seeing you all at the start of the new season.

  294. It's been a poor season but we have had to deal with losing a lot of great players.as we know there is no quick fix to the problem so we should all stand together and let Gary Farquhar and Gary hake do a bit of business over the summer and get right behind the team,c"mon the jags.

    Posted on

  295. Thistlesting pretty much spot on wee yer assessment and if the managers comments in yesterdays press aboot missing key players are anything to go by then God help us.
    Something far wrang if they are key players

    Posted on

  296. Another worrying performance yesterday, and attendance falling, I do not go in with the theory the glory hunters are keeping away, this is an entertainment industry and when you create as little chances as we do, it is a hard slog watching it. The players are trying hard but their confidence looks very low, for which the management team must take responsibility. We are fighting hard to win the ball but when we get it we do not seem to know what to do with it, hot potato springs to mind. I don't think it is down to the players, there are some good players in that team, but we do not seem to have any shape or cohesion and the players don't seem to have any tactical instruction to follow. Again this lies with the management. We are also off pace fitness wise, there was some very tired passing yesterday and Forres was buzzing round us full of energy.
    We have no width and for me young Joe Sutherland is an ideal straight replacement for Pele, Nicky for me, does not look comfortable up front scrapping with big centre halfs and could perhaps be better utilised deeper supporting a striker. I cannot understand why Charlie Charlesworth got so much out of Nicky and we can't. The lad does not look confident or happy, again down to the management.
    This is not a rant at Hake and his assistants but I just wish they would instill more belief and organisation in the side. I don't think Gary has won the respect of the players yet which is concerning.
    We need to learn from our failings and try to get the best out of what we have before we look at spending money.

    Posted on

  297. Once again yesterday found wanting against a team further up the league,we are ok against FW Lossie Rothes but the rest we are way behind.
    Worrying thing for me is there light at the end of the tunnel for next season I am forever the optimist

    Posted on

  307. I agree 100% with Douggie, THERE ARE NO KNIGHTS IN SHINING ARMOUR out there with endless amounts of money to spend on Buckie Thistle. Do you think the current Board Members are not trying their best to drum up money along with progressing other things within the club, so as to sustain a viable future for BT? Needtogetreal, you say you never said the TV idea was terrible but you said daft so its very similar?? I think the media stream would be a big boost for BT and in this day and age with the internet and tv coverage etc. its an excellent way to target overseas fans and people with an interest in BT There are too many people on these pages living in the past success for the 2 league titles and now expect it every year, as Douggie said, it will not happen all the time as we basically bought the 2 titles. If you want BT to be around in 5 or 10 years time, there are going to be some hard times ahead, if you don't like it then you are not true BT fans. For all the moaners going on about investment, I ask you one question.....................would you pump in £££££ of your hard earned cash for absolutely no return???People forget the current and previous boards and committees give up their own free time and usually costs them money as well, so lets back whoever it is that is the current custodians of BT

    Posted on

  308. Need to get real: with the utmost respect, get real!! Have you got any ideas how the board can get someone in to help gary fund the club? People with an endless tap of money to pour into our club do not exist, unless we get three wishes from the genie in the lamp. It seems some supporters need to be winning leagues every season. Fact: that does not happen, we spent a LOT of money to win our titles, now we need to tighten our belt a bit. If we do not have much money hard work is needed working with what we've got and trying to get the best from them. We as supporters need to give our support by turning up to all games and giving our team our full support and encouragement. Are things so bad? Did we not beat keith and play very well against a quality Nairn side. We have some young players who are playing well and continue to improve, things look Ok to me.

  309. Great team pemforeces tonight what a goal from
    Grahame stewart hope we keep it up and what a goal from ex Buckie player craig macmillan.

    Stuart hogge is a really good player for us I thought he should of scored tonight

    Lets keep up the good hard work Buckie

    Posted on

  310. Hibee07

    IF you knew anything about the current affairs at Buckie you will know this pipe dream should be put on hold until finances is sorted out.
    I didn't say it was doomed to failure or it was a terrible idea. This club has more pressing issues to sort before we start any new ventures like this. Getting someone onboard to help the President fund this club and to generate some urgently needed income, as the current one is doing nither.
    Stuart's idea is a progressive longterm plan and with the correct path could succeed.
    We're like a rowing boat at coopers park, one oar and a whole, going round in circles and slowly sinking......... we need steadying !!

    Posted on

  311. Hibee
    There is no doubt a lot of benefits having open dialogue with board members and using every platform available is only natural, perhaps Frank was on about the content and appropriateness of the website used to get that message over.
    Having looked at Hibs TV and seen several discussions on it , if Stuart adopts the same for Buckie then the supporters will have a direct route to info and that's no bad thing

    Posted on

  312. see this saturday is the player of the year presentations is there a vote on saturday

    Posted on

  313. Frank, Stuart is the kind of guy who would always try to explain things to fans, he wiz a pioneer of message boards and a pain in the erse to club boards in his time. He wud always try to be fair tho and explain things bit he knows folk will just keep twisting things to suit themselves. Shame really, fans want it both ways likes, they want a communicative director but when they get one they just slag them off.

    Posted on

  314. At the recent fans forum at the british legion the top table of directors told all the supporters not to go on websites such as this with comments about the club , yet i see that their new "director of communications" stuart crowther has been putting statements onto another website , i think its a case of double standards and the new board at buckie only wanting to tell you what they want to hear.

    Posted on

  315. I'd not be say quick to rubbish the Jags TV idea. I member when Stuart Crowther did the same at Hibs, he did it with his own dosh because nobody at the club believed it could be profitable, ended up making thousands for the club and its still going strong.

    Posted on

  316. Really good performance on Saturday to come from a. goal down away to Keith to win. The team was good from back to front, Mainzer was his usual self, excellent, Angus starting to get back to his very best , spider adding some much needed experience in middle of the park, and Nikki putting in a great shift and getting his just rewards.
    It's good to see the team finally settling down after a torid season, losing players to balance the books, players through suspensions and players through injuries. And of course the ever "Saga" that is Buckie Thistle of the park, don't you think it's about time we stopped giving the rest of the league a laugh??

    One other point, this Jags TV ..... I had a right giggle to myself, don't you think the board would be better spending all its borrowed time steading the club financially and resourcing some much needed income ?? Stop wasting time on daft ideas and put your energy into securing the club.

  328. Biscuits will miss tonight's game and Saturday game due to being sent off for violent conduct which is a two match immediate to be served in any competition (same applies for serious foul play and spitting). Any other type of dismissal would mean a suspension only in the league cup due to it being ringfenced and in Lewis case he was shown a second yellow and will mean he misses the next league cup match which will be next season.

  329. Tough game tonight, do the suspensions for the reds carry over to tonight's game? Mon I jags!

  330. Dan Cowie,everybody has an opinion but all the years I have followed the jags I have never seen any opposition supporters run doon to the barrier and roar abuse at the ref or sing you dont know what your doing.

    Posted on

  331. I hear the same sort of things directed at refs at all grounds during a game, maybe where we need to watch is when the officials are leaving the park to go to their dressing room. The game is done then and time to move on.

    Posted on

  332. THe ref widna be human if he never reacted to the abuse thrown at them every time by the same so called Buckie fans I would do the same.
    Do you honestly think Buckie are the only team to hae bad decisions against them I think not.
    Its the ones every time doon baying at the linesman its time they had a wee think to themsel.If some of you actually shouted encouragement towards the team rather than the officials them we might get a decision

    Posted on

  333. Thistlesting and joe I myself lost the head at the refand had a swear at him why. He did do stupid mistakes at the end of normal time 1..leaving the park and 2 making gestures at the fans as he entered his dressing room

    Posted on

  334. Good discussion started here. Usually it is the players and management that ir getting it in the neck. Well it's oor turn noo. Let's all go to the game and enjoy it, win or lose, and lay off the ref and linesmen.
    ye niver know,we may start getting some decisions gan oor wye.

    Posted on

  335. Where do we start ?

    Lets start with the tireless commitment from the 9 players that were left on the park, my hat comes off to you. A great performance and shift put in by those and I felt sorry for them when their tired penalties came to no avail !

    The referee, he got both sending offs correct,He got the penalty save and retake correct Lewis and two Keith players were yards inside the box by the time Cammy kicked the ball. So really we didn't get a bit of much needed luck and some cases of indiscipline cost what would have been a deserved victory.

    The foul and abusive behaviour by the Buckie 'edited' towards the referee was nothing short of disgusting !! For grown responsible men to act in such a manner was an embarrassment to the club and all that it stands for !!

    Season is now over, all but pride to play for, lets get the youngsters from the Rovers and give them a run out and see what situation we will have in the summer.

At the end o the game, area ahin Keith dugoot there wis kids gettin their high fives fae the players, area ahin Buckie dugoot, lynch mob shoutin n swearin at the ref, great example for the kids to see, absolute disgrace, if ye shouted some o that stuff in the street, the bobbies wid pick ye up. The club needs tae stamp this oot

  337. Thanks buckiejo for encouraging responsible behaviour. I am unfortunately old enough to remember the late Jock Stein saying "If you're good enough, the referee doesn't matter."
    But our minority that pilage referees probably know the game better than Jock.

  338. Spot on thistlesting wee yer verdict,aye the ref was poor b ut refs are never gan to gee Buckie any favours gan by the abuse they get and it only happens at the viccy.
    you never hear it at the other grounds so its time the abusers engaged their brain sometimes.
    once again oor discipline let us doon and in the end cost us the game,thats the season over lets start building for next season and start to sign players that will improve the team cos the ones this season I have not been impressed by the majority of them

  339. 100% did not cross line as it would have been impossible for ball to be over line and come back out off the bar the way it did

  340. Superb performance today by a hard working jags squad. However they we're on a hiding to nothing and never stood a chance as they were outnumbered in more ways than one from the start. Never ever seen anything so shocking. What else can u say!!!!!!! Keep the faith awa the jags!!!!!!

  341. Thought we gave a great fighting performance today, not the prettiest football but the spirit was good. Keith looked a very mediocre team emphasised when they failed to score in extra time against nine men. The brave Jags even managed to create a few chances during this period. Negatives today should be directed at some supporters. The verbal abuse against the referee again let us down. Yes, he had a poor game but this behaviour does not change decisions or results. The two sending offs were correct. Lewis was unlucky with his tackle but had to walk for a second yellow. Shaun let us down more than the ref with his wild lunge at his opponent. I feel his sending off changed the game, not the official. His constant yellow cards was poor but the sending offs were correct which was the reason we did not seal the victory in 90 minutes. I am unsure why the penalty had to be retaken, but at the end of the day we still led the game after that and looked comfortable until shauns moment of madness and louie's tackle in the box. Can any jags fan be 100% sure Keiths shot off the bar did not cross the line. The referee obviously did not have anything to do with us losing the shootout. We have less quality now than we enjoyed in previous seasons, so must keep 11 players on the field. I worry this referee abuse will make them dread coming to Buckie and it certainly won't help to give us any important decisions during games. If referee's don't like us, it certainly won't help us.

  342. dina like ti see coaches comin on after the game and slaggin off the team these things should be kept in the dressin room, a lot o the blame for wednesday was doon ti the managament onywy, we set up we 3 at the back, it didna work it never does work for us, it shuold have been changed after 10 mins it was obvious ti abody there far the problem was, shaun an craig were pushin too far forward and the broch were firin bas inti the corners, the fault disna only lie we the players

  344. All that can be said for last nights performance is its a good job we have an outstanding goalie who once again saved us fae a hammering.
    First shot target 85 minutes apart Lewis effort says it all.We are back to hump the ba tactics to Lewis and when he controls the ba we are still in oor ain half.Its time to say thanks to him and get back to defence.
    Said so at the time but can somebody explain to me why Spider has came back.the league has long gone,he canna play in the cup and to me all we are deeing is get him fit pay his wages and go back to the locos.
    Last night showed oor level, play a half decent team and we are a poor second.
    Heres hoping for a better showing on setterday

  380. Round and round we go, same guff week in week oot. Same story lines,same moans and groans. Did a hear only o this at the forum? no, the only thing that's consistent is that Gary is one of our best players but has a keekum every now and again and let's the side down by getting a red card and a lengthy ban. Everything will be fine when we beat Banks o Dee, then back to square one fan we get stuffed on SAturday ! Swings and Roundabouts, what's the matter, answers on a postcard to ?

  381. Poor show wi the red card.Apart frae that some new blood is needed in the , especially the forard line. Whits happened tae wir hat hero 2 weeks ago.

    Posted on

  382. Some jags fans need a reality check only last week they were shouting for the managers head , then we beat the broch and everything is ok a draw with ten men away at turra and they are moaning that certain local players should be playing and that the same manager should play the youngsters on tuesday.
    Reality check .........its a results buisness and the management team will put out their strongest team to try and win the match if they dinna win then the same fans will be shouting for the managers heed .

    Posted on

  383. I think Gary Clark has been playing well lately, working really hard in midfield, but today he let us all down AGAIN, he is just too hot headed and unreliable. With the players we have lost, we need to keep 11 on the park
    I would like to see jordan getting more playing time, with a bit more positive encoragement from the dugout, he can be a great addition to the team

    Posted on

  384. It is easy for young Joe to get a regular game. All he needs to do is get a flat in Mastrick or Torry & voila, he would then come fae aberdeen. Startin' place guaranteed every week!!!

    Posted on

  385. Great performance by the ten men today. Turriff deserved to win but with grit & determination we held out for a point. Gary Clark, please apologise to your team mates and the fans, double red card. I see from managers interview he clearly feels the officials were at fault. Wake up and look at gary's record. I personally would like to see him let go now, but i am sure he will get away with it again. Why can Jo be overlooked for a new young signing who hasn't been tested, especially when down to ten men, i fear he will get fed up and move

    Posted on

  386. Probably a draw was a good result the day after the sending off.Once again he has let the team doon I thought at first the ref was at it but speaking to fans near to the incident said he did say it but also did so one of theirs.
    How many times is this gan to happen afore he is binned finally.
    Defensively we were excellent in the second half apart fae the soft goal we gave away.When are the management team gan to get some mobility into the team as the day some of oor players did nothing.Heres hoping on tuesday some of the younger players get a game to show fit can do

    Posted on

  392. totally agree with last 2 comments the team need the fans more than ever . New manager new team Greg Carrol is in the past winning the league is inthe past buckie have to work at winning the league title again fans taking the huff and not coming back is not the answer you have to take the good with the bad and get behind your team regardless no team has a bigger support than Buckie Thistle and yes the fans want to see a succesful team and i am sure it will come

    Posted on

  393. If people choose not to come back then it says more about them that Buckie Thistle, we've seen a lot worse than today on the pitch and we need to remember this, the players were gutted on Saturday so no one is hurting more than them, the least we can do is support them through the rough times

    Posted on

  394. disappointed that RR won't be back, Andrew Murray, hope the fans are not struggling. We cannot win the league every year and if fans stop coming during a difficult period, that's sad. This is when we need to get behind the club. Moni jags !!!!!

    Posted on

  395. Thought we played arite for the 1st 60mins yesterday but after we went 1doon that was it we drifted oot the game. Is our fitness as good as it could be as a team ??. Am nae sure it is as same thing exactly happened v Broch and Formartine.
    To be honest i think a lot of the fans are now struggling i wasna really bathered we got beat.
    Huge week for the management team as 2 defeats v the Broch and Turriff and i doubt the managment team can continue. Buckie are too big a team to be 5th or 6th bottom if the league. Weve got fae a team feared by abody to a team that Strathspey and Fort can beat

    Posted on

  396. Agree wi last two comments, substitutions when chasing the game are baffling.

  397. Winna be back,enough said.

    Posted on

  398. I do think the jags need change of manager . bring back Greg Carrol I say ?

    Posted on

  399. Far div yi start?? Substitutions are a mystery. Against Formartine and yesterday fin we went behind the "manager" pits on midfield an defensive players.These lads are Jags signed players and here on merit bit am sure even they are surprised at gittin on in that situation. I hiv ti ask, hoo mony games did we win in the second haf wi the last Manager.He made brilliant changes ti tactics an his team were really fit.It looks ti me that the trainin is sadly lackin.Maybe we shid go up for a look!! At the warm up for the Formartine game the assistants language wis hale bad an am sure fowk wi faimilies there dinna want ti listen ti that stuff.Grant Smith's comments in the Squeak last week were spot on.In ony walk o life hoo can yi git the best oot a fowk bi effin an blindin at them as we saw an heard fin Gary Hake took the 21's.We're on a doonward spiral an am afraid that if we dinna see a change o management sooner rather than later it'll only git worse.I hiv ti winner fit players wid like ti come ti the Jags at the moment.Am sure that I hivna got the remind the directors that the buck will stop wi them an if they dinna act seen wir great club will slip further.

  400. it's time the commitee was takein a look at the managment team we were lacking pace and penetrtion up front today and yet at 1 0 down we 20 mins too go we take of a forward and put on a midfield player , then we put on a full back for the last 10 mins ,as always we go for the negative moves rather than go on and try to win the game, time for a change of manager i think

  402. Great game by the jags. More like it. The team played weel wi' 7 good goals.

Well done jags, keep it up.

    Posted on

  413. Is there going to be a report on the fans forum for those of us unable to get there on Saturday?

    Posted on

  414. The loss of some of our better players is going to make it a long hard slog until the end of the Season. However, Club had little option but to cash in now on those who would have gone for free in a few months or a striker who in his own words " had lost the desire to play for Buckie". Important thing now is to bring in players with the correct attitude for next season. Thought Gary Clark was imense on Saturday against Formartine with his work rate, attitude and willingness to take responsibility in difficult situations. Plays on the edge at times but we could do with a few more like him.

    Posted on

  415. everyone should look where we are in the league table ??

    Posted on

  416. never seen the enclosure empty so fast as it did on saturday, lucky if there were 20 left with 10mins too go, something has too be done before there are only 20 there when the game kicks off

    Posted on

  417. Fit on earth is happening ? Two local boys, have scored at this level, sitting on the bench. Two strikers off, two midfielders shoved up front. Far be it for me to question the thinking behind that piece of tactical genius but Formartine were not out of second gear and their defence hardly broke sweat !! Not impressed,

    Aye, I see youve got a spine OK, but it must be pretty rubbery, cos you dont care who likes or doesnt like what you say or have siad at AGMs etc, that you cant even put your name to your comment!! ha ha

    Get behind the current regime and give them a chance for goodness sake.............unless of course you are willing to become a Board member and sort it all out????? and do everything that they are not doing according to you.

  424. Re "buckiejo"

    For one I'm not loading bullets for anybody, I don't have to, those questions should be asked by life long fans , players, supporters club etc etc people who care about the club , have a passion, have mates playing there....

    And believe you me if I was at home I would stand up and ask those exact questions , because unlike 80% of the support I have a spine and I'm not afraid of who thinks what and I don't take sides either.

    I can't see any reason why any of the players would want to play for this club anymore other than a young local with a dream. But even then I don't think they would want to play.

    I pulled the "hoops" on in the poor old days, i played for nothing, I know what it's like and I know where it's heading. Too many keyboard gangsters in buckie, time to man up and speak up!!

    Posted on

  425. Need to get real,
    Seems to me you are loading bullets for somebody else to fire,if you are so concerned as to the way the club is going why did you nae stand up at the AGM and ask yer questions under any other business.
    I am pretty sure the people who are nae on the other world are mair than capable of asking questions but heres hoping it disna turn into politician type answer that is just answer the questions they want to hear.
    See you there oh I forgot you will nae be there

    Posted on

  427. Re "confused jag"

    Not sure how the "forum" will go, either way we will be standing watching the Formartine game with alot of "spin" and unanswered questions.
    Most of the questions will or should be directed to the board, as in my opinion feel as though they are accountable "mostly" for what's going this season.
    Questions that would most likely need to be asked are: Why have the board failed to bring in any new investors - sponsorship- financial help into the club? Are the board 100% behind the coaching staff? Are we in financial difficulty hence the "selling" of key players to balance books? Are the coaching staff going to get the "bulk" of transfer money gained to strengthen? And really -What are the boards aims and goals for bringing the club forward?
    Will anybody stand up and ask these sorts of questions, I pretty much doubt going by the AGM at the start of the season. If I weren't at the other side of the world working I'm pretty damn sure I would standing up asking.
    The failure at this level has a massive effect on the future of football in Buckie , this shouldn't be allowed to happen.

    Posted on

  428. What are folks thoughts on the forum, will the agenda be an open all inclusive one where criticism is welcomed and answered or will it be the usual shut up shop. What will be the most controversial question??

  431. Many thanks to Paul Napier, you have been an excellent asset to the club. Good luck at Formartine
    Things may not be so rosy now but hey, lets get behind the lads who are left and cheer them on, our feelings may translate on to the pitch on a Saturday.
    Who knows, the players may do well. No word from the board about what plans we have for the future, but I hope we postpone the building of a new stand and sort out the football side first.
    We cannot expect to win every season and maybe we have been a bit spoiled with the recent success, no other highland league team could sustain the size of squad we had in those times. Time for a reality check. We may be mid to lower table for a long time but at least there is no relegation.
    Positives - young players like Shaun Wood, Darren Wood, Angus, Sutherland, Shand. These guys could be the answer.

    Posted on

  432. All the best to pele at his new club and thanks for what you gave us in the last few years , another top player leaving is not good news for us jags fans and things are as bad at the moment as they have been in a long, long time .

  433. all the best to Paul Napier you will be missed

    Posted on

  434. Buckies wages will not attract players here anymore, we've seen the good times now its a belt tightening exercise, no harm in that. For whatever reasons players are leaving i dont know but Zanders was a no brainer for the loon, Martins was to be expected at sometime and Pele will undoubtably have a better offer at Formartine. The club cannot stop this from happening its how it reacts to it that will tell us where we are. I bear no malice to any of the players that have left, if anything Zander and Pele should be commended for allowing the club to receive a fee and bnot walking in the summer and Martins was good business in the end, we have to move forward see this season out and regroup, look at new signings and look at the youths and see where we can go but we must go forward!!

    Posted on

  435. Have to agree with confused Jag, we are where we are so its time to back the Board and management team, We have a forum shortly so ask your pertinent questions but please lets be civilised and not descend into a farce in trying to score points against each other/s.
    Stop and think-what is all this saying to future investors-run away!
    Lets all just take a time out and pause that includes all present and previous management and supporters for the good of Buckie thistle football club.
    I dont see any other football club washing their dirty linen in public like us over the past years.

    Posted on

  436. Ask yourself , why are our best players hell bent on leaving the club. Do you really think the present regime have it in them to attract players who will bring on our own young lads ? If so where are they. The club must have some finances to give to Gary so what's happening ? Lots of questions to be asked in a couple of weeks time, hope we get some answers.

    Posted on

  437. So basically people are wanting to sack the management team? What do we do then , we still will have players wanting to leave and we still wont have the finances to match the last 10 years, how will this help?? I agree that the integration of certain players into the management and youth structures is important but Gary, Colin, Graeme and Kevin deserve our support in what is trying times for everyonme associated with the club

    Posted on

  438. Aye boys, Doug, yer right. One major problem is how div you attract players to the club. Answer, get somebody in who kens the league inside oot, has the respect of players at the club and who has a proven ability to bring on youngsters by leadin by example. Somebody that can mak the club attractive to get quality into the squad that in turn will get the crowds back and the place buzzin again. It winna happen overnight but how far soon the league div you wint to be afore it happens. Thers nae a lot o clubs can boast a semi pro captain, Hfl player o the year and somebody that has worked wi young players for mare than 10 years in their staff, the vale gave Greg a start at 32 an look fit happened. Les FRidge,CHarlie Rowley, Hunter at the Broch, fit are we waitin for ?

    Posted on

  439. Things dinna look good jist now but every team has to have a period of rebuilding now and then. If the club does not have any money to buy quality, that's fine but what I don't want to see is us bringing in average highland league players for their experience, as they will always be average, we have to look at younger players and develop them. I read Hearts used six teenagers at Parkhead against Celtic yesterday, Hibs and Dundee Utd are consistantly bringing through young players. If these SPL clubs think that this is the way forward with the current financial climate, we need to get on that bus as soon as possible and work hard at it. The other advantage with a good proportion of young players is one of them might exceed expectation and end up getting the club a healthy transfer fee.

  440. The jags have had a problem scoring goals all season ,zander scored about half of them and with him being sold we are now going to struggle to win games, pele is also set to leave and there will be other players heading for the exit door, things are not looking good .

  441. Agree wi Doug to see our 2 former strikers get 5 goals atween them is depressing for Jags fans and also the amount of goals Squish has at Formartine this season.
    Zander getting in amongst the goals was always gan to happen so might as well get to used to it. Our 3 srikers Aaron, Nikki and Jo have to get a chance the rest of the season and they are all capable o it

  444. So another saturday bites the dust and probably we are now about to enter another winter that leads to the mad dash midweek game scenario to get the season finished.

    This does nothing to attract fans or sponsors and with a lack of money in the game even more will be lost with the wed game scenario again.

    Why not try the summer football thing, Christ it cannot be worse than the winter scenario.
    Heck we might even get better pitches for the players, more families turning up. No need to spend great fortunes on enclosures(the clubs that have then that is) More sponsers(less cancelations), more cash spent in the clubs facilities and a attitude that says I look forward to the game rather than oh heck look at the weather will I go, also the critical factor young supporters might just be tempted away from FB, X boxes etc if they can get their shorts on and laze around on the grass instead of in the house.

    April to December season with a few weeks break for the school holidays and players holidays and pitch recovery.Before the sc cup is mentioned nobody from the HFl gets much further than the dec-jan date and the Powers to be south dont give ashh about us so why not give it a go- Heck what have we got to lose!!!
    Our game is already dying a slow death but we might just stall it a bit and give it time to breath and dare I say it -recover!

  448. As said in other posts, we do not have enough local players to play for the jags. No one is suggesting we put our young lads in the team just now. However, we never will have any local talent if they do not get u21 games, a previous post mentioned a few 15 year olds playing in the 21 game against Turriff. These lads were from Aberdeen I'm told. Why play 15 year olds from Aberdeen and ignore our 17's and older that went through the youth development.
    Are these young Aberdeen lads parents friends with the manager? who knows but it makes you wonder.
    Our own guys would benefit from these games as the term development suggests. I know of a couple of really promising players that quit due to lack of opportunity and being bypassed at 21 level by first team players and Aberdeen lads.
    When clubs do not have the money to spend on players, this is the most important area for any club. Get these lads into the 21 team and develop them further and see where they can go. You never know, we may get another Micky McPherson, Alex Innes, Robbie Nicol, Jamie Shewan.........
    The Vale and the Broch seem to get lads coming through, so could we if more effort was made by the management

  449. Think the biggest question here is WHY do players want to leave the club?? Not so long ago we were a league winning side and a very appealing club for players to join.
    The new 'regime' have had plenty of time to get things sorted out and on track and this does not seem to be the case.

    'A few successfull years cost the club a fortune and do you really think that this would be sustainable? ' as mentioned by 'Football Fan' Why shell out a fortune on a new stand then if money is a problem??

    Have heard strong rumours that 5 other players will be gone in the next few months?? Think someone from the board needs to man up and come forward and tell us what is going on???

    Posted on

  450. It looks like players are leaving because they are not happy with the way things are being run at the club ,"football fan" has hinted at this by saying that they are leaving for "whatever reason".
    Its also a FACT that a senior member of the board tried to sell players to other clubs without their knowledge this is what happened with zander going to brora,it looks like the jags are in freefall and that other players will also dissapear "like snaw offf a dyke" before the end of the season.

  451. Re Football Fan

    You look back to recent post I made about bring realistic on the money situation, wages, expenses etc etc and you will see my views on that, pretty much what you've mentioned.
    On your committee point, I never questioned their commitment and dedication or any else to go with committees, I mentioned "board". Also I would never join a committee with the people that's at the club at the moment , never. They will get told what they need to know, nothing more, the board will decide regardless.
    As for players wanting to leave, yes sell on, take the money as contracts are running out, no brainer as you said, or could we have tried to resign them - contract extensions??? Or ask the player one to one and ASK him why he wants to leave, you might not get the answer your looking for ..........
    You need to stop listening to what your told and start looking and listening for yourself .

    I bet you the manager and assistant won't get a fraction of the money taken in to strengthen the squad. Which is a shame really because its denying them the chance to prove themselves and will probably be driven from the club as failures.

  452. Re "need to get real" comments. I agree you dont have enough local players good enough to have an all local team, or near enough a whole team. Very few clubs can do that and be successfull as such. But what I dont agree with you is where you say the club members are selling the best players. You have to remember it was the players who ASKED to be put on the transfer list, going by the press. If a player has made up his mind he wants to leave, for whatever reasons, then I feel the board are 100% correct in what they are doing. Sell them now or let them go for nothing in the summer, is a no brainer!! You cant keep any players who want away, so bottom line is take what you get for them and ideally replace them with the best that is on the go and what you can afford. If you are that concerned about the "run the club to the ground" then why not get yourself on the committe and let your voice be heard where you will be in a position to do something? You always read a lot of negative comments coming from football fans at all clubs at all levels, but I for one will never give a committee a hard time as the time, effort and money that goes with running a club is a thankless task. You will never keep everybody happy all the time. At the end of the day the club has to run within its means and as far as possible be self sufficient in generating income. A few successfull years cost the club a fortune and do you really think that this would be sustainable? Lets all take a step back and give the current board & management time to get things in place. I believe there is a lot happening behind the scenes and things are being done, so lets wait and see.

  453. It now looks like the board cheap option of promoting Mr Hake to manager has bit them where it hurts,all of a sudden half of the players want away!!
    Buckie have the biggest fan base in the highland league,so surely they could have attracted the best managers in the highland league,but no no we will just shaft the fans dreams and there money and go on the cheap route!!

  455. De JA Vu !! Here we go again, the life members on this board are trying to take us down the same path AGAIN , the path that nearly got this club folded.
    Lets sell everyone, take the money in and squander it, tell the fans nothing, try an all local team and sit 6th bottom, nobody cares, as long as we don't have to do anything that's good.
    WELL an all local team will win you nowt and it want draw in the crowds, SUCCESS draws in the crowds and we haven't enough local players good enough to play Highland League!
    The board must get real, they must tell the management and fans it's aims and objectives, and very soon before any more players get sick of the crap. And if this is a hidden agenda to get rid of the coach and staff it's getting beyond a joke.
    Give them the baulk of the thirteen thousand to rebuild , get new players in or face a fans backlash, you did it once before we will not standby and let you do it AGAIN.

  456. On the buckie clubebsite it says that martin charlesworth will be joining deveronvale thats another good player away then.

  457. I have always supported using our youth development more, some fans on this site do not feel local fans will come to support the club just because local lads are playing and this may be true. However it must be said Jamie has always been one of the supporters' favourites, yes because he is a good player but also the fans know he plays for the badge which locals would do.
    I feel really strongly that our youth development players should be playing in the under 21 games, if not then the work David Findlay and his team are doing is pointless. I cannot see the point of playing first team players in these games, or one of the coaches.
    This is a quote from the Vale's website from Mr Charlesworth:- "We know what is required plus there are a number of other issues that are every bit as important for the future and that is the youth system"
    I wish we could hear words like this from our management.

  458. I respect your comments about negativity around some players, however I feel that a lot of these said comments were not about players ability, more about their commitment and work rate. A great player like Zander was not just praised for his skill but his graft on the park, the laddie tried his heart out every game. When fans are now paying a considerable amount of money per season to attend home and away games, the least they deserve is 100% from all the players.

    Posted on

  459. Have to agree with a lot of what vinny has said just because fans post comments on a website does not mean that they are always negative, a lot of supporters are frustrated at what seems to be happening and with the lack of information coming from the boardroom .

  460. "While we are all entitled to our opinion on the Jags, lets not start to get to carried away disecting individual players performances......."

    You need to lighten up on this level of censorship. Just because something is disected or analysed does not automatically mean the conclusions are always negative. We all chew over players performances, but the implication that this custom is "getting carried away" is in itself insulting.
    Moderator comments: I stand by my comment especially after we have requests from players and family in around the amount of negative talk on media sites, not constructive critisism which everybody will accept but some of the staements are becoming unbeliavable, time for everybody to pull together.
    On this site we will post positive and negative comments but the comments will be monitored, if anybody is unhappy with this then they can always access other sites where you will be free to post as much and as brtual comments as you like about the players and club. however m

  463. I think it may be pertinant for Buckie Thistle's Board representative to come forward and talk to the supporters and give answers to why players are leaving, and what plans they have to replace them. Rumour mill in overdrive as usual, so some statements would help.Sadly the sound of silence is deafening!!

    Instruction to all.

    While we are all entitled to our opinion on the Jags, lets not start to get to carried away disecting individual players performances, The players as well as the fans will be frustrated with the events of this season and focussing on negativity will have an effect on the players and all at the Club. There is plenty of this on other social websites at the moment concerning the Jags without our Guest book turning into another Jags negativity site so Yes post comments but at this time what the club needs is a united positive support from us all, please remember this before posting comments on this site or any other site and also at the game. Otherwise I will delete all football related posts other than (I like your site)posts about the site in general.
    Thanks in advance for future compliance with this request!

  473. Zander fan thats always been the case with the fans so nothing changed there Iam afraid nae matter fae in the boardroom.
    Doug got to agree with you they have nae been performing and i said on here afore move them on.the centre forward has scored twice in the league and they were handed on a plate to him by zander
    Thistlesting why is it fan something like this happens the old warcry goes oot play locals,that was tried years ago and failed then and if you think playing locals will bring crowds back to the viccy,dream on though i wish i could agree wee you.
    I could name the hunner noo fa will go the games i will be at Nairn the morn and if any of the transfer listed play then I to will be jioning the doubters of the management team

  475. I agree with what has been said earlier in that hake and small certainly do not have an easy job to do, if some of the rumours are correct then there is little or no money to spend and key players are going to have to be replaced.
    I also agree with what has been said about the buckie board and what was said at the agm , there seems to be a lack of direction off the park , there has been a lack of information to the fans regarding what is going on at the club , these are changed days indeed in only a short period of time , many jags fans have seen this before and unfortunately will probably see it again , keep supporting the team.

Every champion winnin team eventually gits broken up and some o these lads are by their best noo, it his tae happen, some posts on here some weeks hiv been cryin oot for change, bit fan it happens abidy gits feart. I agree wi Thistlesting, follow some o the ither teams example n gie the young anes a chance tae develop

  477. I agree with some of need to get real's comments. Let's face it, no team can sustain the investment Buckie made to win the leagues. I do fear about dropping attendances, I feel the way to combat this is to use our own local talent, win or lose, a lot of local people will turn up to see local players going through their development, no we won't challenge for a while, but with the right guidance and coaching, who knows what is possible without having to spend large sums. What worries me is that it seems that Aberdeen is where the eyes that pick the team is looking. What is the point of having a youth development if we continually to bypass the players. They may not be the finished product but with continued coaching from David Findlay AND the first team coaches, who knows what they could achieve.

    Posted on

  478. Buckie fans need to get real, wake up and smell the coffee. For the last four year Buckie have been spending obscene amounts of money on players and wages, to unsustainable proportions.
    IF rumours are correct we have cut the monthly bill 'edited', I stress that is rumour but with substance. NOW think about where that money is coming from, gate receipts? raffle money? Sponsors?fundraising? none, direct debit from 'Edited' bank account, and how long can 'Edited' do this? I for one wouldn't waste that sort of money unless I was a multi millionaire FFS !! By getting rid of these players will help(slightly) with the wage and expenses bill and hopefully take in some money.
    Where is all the promises the new board made pre season? What have the new board done to help with this problem? What is the boards aims or goals for Buckie Thistle?
    Gary Hake and Kevin Small have probably got the hardest job as Buckie management in over ten years, all the others have had it good with as much money to spend.
    Buckie are no longer a force and won't be for a few year until we get a healthy , steady buisness which is sustainable.
    As for fans not coming back because we're not winning, or taking the hump or boycotting the 'Edited',whatever,is just hurting the club and making it harder to invest.
    I will stand at the dugout with a hundred fans again and go through the bad times, but will you??

  479. Its not looking good at the moment for the jags with all these players being sold , davie macrae, zander, charlesworth and pele will be a big big loss for us they have all been key players for us in winning the two leagues and all the cups .
    Who are they going to be replaced by? probably players that are nowhere near as good , just look at the summer when only one player left and five or six came in , has the team got better ,NO .
    Its more than likely that even more players will now want to leave and we will be back to the bad old days with a crap team on the park and crowds dropping to under 100 like it was in the nineties , questions must be asked NOW what is going wrong at the viccy?

    Posted on

  480. While it is sad for the 2 players to be listed I feel the right decision has been made if they dinna want to play for the jags then go,and some fa div.
    In their own way they are good players but its time to move on and is Zander gan or no

    Posted on

  481. If we get rid of all our best players then the jags will be a bottom six club for YEARS to come , its ok for some to say if they dont want to play for the us then they should go but if you are being honest it would be a disaster , why is it that so many players now want to leave?

    Posted on

  482. looks like the start o an exodus fae the jags, 3 on the way oot how many more, somethin needs ti be done and soon afore we are doon in the bottom 3 or 4, lets go we the players that want ti play for buckie, if they dinna want ti play for the club bin them NOW.

  483. Joseph-you seem to be agreeing with what I said, Turriff young players are obviously ready for the first team now, no surprise really after watching them, why on earth would Buckie play 15 year olds from Aberdeen when they have their own set up. The club close to my heart started using Aberdeen players, what happened? They now have no fans.
    Jagsfan-What reaction does the Buckie manager get from the players when he is watching Buckie youth games from lads who are being overlooked by 15 year old Aberdeen lads, cannot be very encouraging for them. Playing your own players at u21 level is surely one of the ways to develop them further

    Posted on

  484. Jason.
    In defense of Buckie,they have a good youth set up,and also connections to the two junior sides, Buckie Rovers and Portgordon Vics.Just a shame it does not get used like it could.I think there was only 2 lads from the the Buckie youth set up that got some gametime on Monday.The rest of the team apart from a few first team players I believe are all from the Aberdeen area.I am sure they could have a starting 11 from the 15's, 17's, Rovers and Vics no problem with two or three first team lads in the mix,and they train together often too.We have decent young lads on our doorstep who are worthy of a chance.

  490. Yes we fell away in second half but dont take nothing away from Broch they had pace and did not let us play.
    We lack pace all round the park so we will be caught out with clever teams, we have rode our luck a lot over past few years regarding defending.
    Up front we lack a prolific scorer not had that since Gary whytes days,
    I cant say the guys have no committment you can see by their face s walking doon the tunnel at the end of the game the have tried hard. may be the Wick 7-0 and Vale 7-0 their heads went doon.
    I am a little amazed that Young 'edited' came on instead of 'edited' as he still along way ready from being up to the physical and better teams, need to work on his pace.
    I think we need to add a little discipline back in to squad 'edited' plays well then see red mist probably should have went off again yesterday 'edited' gets involved needlessly
    'edited' need to play back all his after match comments for every match this year and question himself as said before 'edited'

  491. Aye lads even fan we drew with the all conquering Rothes team their manager said that the jags would be hammered by the better teams the way we play.

Thistlesting is right aboot the striker, for a big lad he is very feart for himsel and disna look interested, we hiv young strikers who with games could do a LOT better, yes it wid take time to find their feet but that's fine as we canna challenge this year onyway. I dinna see any long term strategy from the manager, it seems to be week to week usin the players we hiv to try n get a result, it's time to rebuild for the future, get the young anes in, lads that will play for the badge n nae jist turn up cos ther under contract

    Posted on

  495. Agree wi everybody aboot yesterday. I thought we played weel 1st half but 2nd half was a non event. Fraserburgh totally deserved their win and wanted to win. Zander was brilliant but to be honest going forward we are a one man team. Yesterday i thought Clarky battled awa and his commitment canna be questioned also the overworked defence and Dezzy played well but dont know where we go fae here 3 wins in 12 competitive home matches this season is POOR

    Posted on

  496. Superb first half yesterday, then it fell apart again. The responsibility and endeavour is falling to the same players each week with some not looking interested to give their all for the club. Our prolific winger is an example of this. As well as being our most skilful and creative player, he must be one of our hardest working players. If all the boys worked as hard as him, we would not have displays like these. Our striker does not look interested and certainly is our poorest performer, slow, immobile and not willing to put his foot in, never challenges in the air with any conviction. We could not defend from the front as he loses the ball all the time and refuses to put pressure on defenders with possession and the ball comes straight back to us. Yet he was kept on the 90 minutes. Why????? Every player is a defender when we do not have the ball, but that is not how some see it. It is left to the same players to fight for the ball.

  497. i agree we buckiejo i presume thats .edited. he is on aboot, play the ba in ti feet instead a lumpin it up in the air we never came oot second half, in the manager? shid hae changed it early on, it was obvious ti abody that we needed ti change,bit as usual it was deen too late, nae excuses we were second best efter half time

  498. The only good thing to come oot o the day is,its jist as well the broch arna in the class as wick because once again we were well beat.
    The numpties fae the enclosure will blame the referee but in the second half we never competed, nae desire etc the same old story.
    I felt sorry for .edited. perhaps instead of boots he should take a stepladder onto the park and i am nae his greatest fan.

  503. Congratulations to the team and management today for a very good performance. Great display and effort. Zander was unplayable at times and his quick thinking seemed to catch out even his own team mates. I understand the referee's thinking when he sent off Shewan, his run at his opponent before the tackle looked very aggressive, but I feel he got this decision wrong, the actual challenge was fair. On the negative side, our front two look yards short of pace, their fitness still looks woeful and their running power is non existant. I just cannot see a healthy goal return in these two players unless they knuckle down in training and in their own time and drastically improve their fitness. They are not able to give the effort the rest of the team are displaying. Unless their mobility improves, we must consider joe and Aaron, as they both have pace, they may lacking experience but they cannot do nothing about that if they are not getting game time. Hope we take today's form into next weeks game.

  505. I would just like to thank the Buckie Thistle Supporters club for the generous gift i recieved today. It was a kind gesture and very much appreciated. Thanks also for all the support that you have all given me during my time at the club and I wish the club all the best in the future. Cheers Davie Mac

  506. Good result from the lads yesterday, hope this brings a little bit more confidence and happiness back to the team. I still think we should be trying new faces at the risk of dropping points as the rest of this season could be utilised to blood new players for the longer term.
    However, great to see the lads secure a good win, well done!!!!

  507. Ah agree wi buckiejo,tae make some changes in the team. Ah wis at the 21 game and saw some gid fitba wi the jags pittin in great effort. Great goal by shand. Him and smith combined weel wi each other annd the team effort wis whit we expect fae buckie. Ah hope the manager took note

  508. I was at the under 21 game on Monday and saw 2 players score who have never got a chance in the first team so why were they signed in the first place.
    Still in a state of shock after setterday but it has been coming and please stop going on aboot 7nil at the vale that was a one off the wick game wisna, they are a nae bad team for being average as described by the manager.

  509. Auldyin - yer idea is actually quite a good ane. Play the u21's against Brora. There is nae relegation tae worry aboot and it is likely we will lose on Saturday whatever team we pit oot. Many o that young players dinna get picked on a presumption they couldna handle the highland league yet, bit who kens until ye try them. Maybe it will show up a couple o players that can dee it an rise to the challenge. If they got a shot, they wid certainly give their all and run themsels intae the ground unlike the first team. We need to change things noo for next season, there's nae pint pickin the team we got for the rest o the season, tryin tae get as much points as possible tae hopefully finish mid table, that disna mak sense, make changes noo !!!!!!!!1

  511. Not fair that Smaller has to give post game interview, think Gary had to do this one. Kevin very humble and gave good interview tho.
    Disagreed a little with the "how can we go from drawing with Cove to losin 7-0" bit.
    We were lucky last week, we certainly didna play well enough to deserve a point. we defended with our lives and Cove had a bad day in the box. On another day we could have got it last week as well. We canna go through games not creating and just expectin a great defensive and GK performance. Still think we look very sluggish and unfit, off the pace, One player looked knackered comin aff efter the warm up.

  513. jack, if you are saying wick is a schoolboy team what are we a pub team!!!!! the management should have played the supporters over 40's squad, what a farce

    Posted on

  514. I am appalled to read this morning that the Jags were beaten 7-0 by a bunch of schoolboys from Wick. I can only think that the manager was holding back several players for the next game against Elgin Academy.

    Posted on

  515. Not going to comment on yesterdays game, but would like to know, and i am sure Easton can help, when was the last time if at all as i cant remember we lost 7-0 at home.

    Posted on

  516. Very good point farawajag, Gary is one of the players who is giving it his all. It is just frustrating that he gets cautioned in these games and then he has to restrain himself for fear of the second booking. I do not mind when he is cautioned for an overzealous tackle, it is more the needles bookings that frustrate many people

    Posted on

  517. Still canna believe the Jags got beat by 7-0 at hame and as Thistlesting says it could easy have been mare if it hidna been for Kevin Main. Young Shaun Wood also can hold his heid up but we gave up.
    Nae good enough for a once proud Jags team to be HUMBLED in such a manner.
    Taking nithin awa fae Week who were fantastic and who deserve as much praise going but no team shid come to Buckie and do that to us. Things need to get sorted oot this week or weel get anither hammering at Brora
    And why nae Nikki Smith ??

    Posted on

  518. JFK.have to agree with you but had a lot more of the players shown the effort and tenacity that Mr Clark had shown we would not be in this position, some guys are going through the motion!
    All we ask is to stand up and be counted or its simple move on, Jags supporters never critisise as long as the effort is there but at the moment we are light years away from the level Wick are playing and in truth Molby won us the league with goals!

    Posted on

  519. Wick were outstanding today, not by physicality like Cove or Forres but by playing good football. They move the ball very well and break very quickly. This is the type of football that deserves to win the league and great praise must be given to the manager coaches and players. Well done!!!
    It pains me to say this but we were lucky to come out with a seven - zero scoreline, it could have been a few more.
    I said last week we were on a downward spiral and the evidence was plain to see today.
    Disjointed, lacking cohesion and shape. Absolutely no creativity in midfield or from the forward players.
    The team have more ability than this, but they seem to have a great deal less confidence and enthusiasm.
    We look an unhappy team, lacking spirit and desire, going through the motions, it could be said.
    Why have we lost that tenacious edge that won two titles?
    I do not wish to single out any players for criticism, however a mention must go to Gary Clark for again picking up his statutory caution.
    Has he a mandate to get booked each game?
    If only his ability matched his anger

  520. Sad to hear the news on the passing of the Buckie Legend Jimmy Reid - football clubs are buit on legends and in my eyes none bigger than 'auld Jmmy'. Thanks for the laughs, free drams and rubbish jokes Jimmy I always looked forward to seeing you on a Saturday. A great man part of a great club...c'mon the jags & R.I.P. - thoughts with your family, friends and fellow jags - Catts & family.

    Posted on

  521. Sad news to start the week with the passing of Jimmy Reid.. May he rest in peace

    Posted on

  522. Great endeavour by the team v Cove, they gave their all to avoid Cove posting a deserved win.
    Not much cheer for the Jags fans though, except Joe Sutherland starting to adapt well to the Highland league, and scoring with a top class strike and Kevin proving his worth time and time again during the game.
    Gary Clark probably should have had an early bath for the incident in the first half. It is obvious that the management cannot influence the temper of this loose cannon.
    Some of the players fitness looks very suspect, Cove looked much more mobile and sharper all over the field. Training issues????? it seems so.
    I do not expect to win each week, and it does not worry me when we don't, especially if we see the team is moving in a positive direction, however this is not the case with the Jags, we look like a team on a downward spiral.

    Posted on

  523. Does Gary Hake watch the gane same comments every week on his interview good coach but not a manager
    Try Chisolm as caretaker till end of season lets see him getting the guys start playing again along with some new faces

    Posted on

  524. Need som fresh faces in to our squad particularly with pace nice have some of the locals but just not good enough

    Posted on

  525. anither superb goal fae jo the day, the jags played better bit oor passin could still be better, bit a good result against the team that are top o the league, tried ti play the ba through the middle the day instead o humpin it, well done boys, thought kevin was man o the match he hid some really good saves the day

    Posted on

  526. Sorry to hear about the passing away of Jimmy "Doosk". He was one of the unsung few who did a lot of good work for Buckie Thistle and he will be remembered for all the good work he did behind the scenes.

    Posted on

  527. canny see the point o' sendin oot the same players week in week oot an no gettin results. its aboot time the rest o the squad got a wee turn. players that wir signed but never get a game.

    Posted on

  528. davie l if that is the best you hae seen this season yi must a missed a few games fan is the last time we let in 6 goals in 2 games, woodie sittin on the bench, why? he disnna deserve that he his been playin well, ian macrae on the bench,why,he is the best signin this season, jordan on the bench, he his played 2in a half games since comin back fae the rovers, scored 2 + 1 assist ti donnie last week

    Posted on

  529. Jags played weel second half, unlucky yesterday. They will need to perform like the second half in the cove game tho. Nae fan shid be sayin dinna come back to any ither fan on here. Totally oot o order. Abody his ther right to say ther piece

    Posted on

  530. jimbo, i guess you must have went home at half time, thats the best the jags have played this season in the 2nd half. If you dont want to watch just dont come back.

    Posted on

  531. From the reports Buckie dominated the second half..yet no goals.just wonder why the young striker who has scored twice in the last few games was dropped in place of one who has not been scoring at all..

    Posted on

  532. well that was another poor display from the jags the day, players who were poor last week started again the day and they werna ony better this week,you know who they are haker, the fans are startin ti lose patience we the managment, we were hittin the long ball again, it disna WORK SO STOP DEEIN IT,its time for the commitee ti get this sorted oot afore we are doon there we fort william, in stop moanin aboot missin chances fin there are players scorin bit dinna get on the park, very dissappointed again we will be losein the support soon if this goes on.

    Posted on

  533. a the best davie macrae and family hope you enjoy oz, you will always be remembered by the jags fans,brilliant player

    Posted on

  534. Would like to wish Dave Macrae and his family all the best on his new adventure, Dave you will be a massive miss to the team as you rank up there with the great players to play for the jags, one of the finest midfield players i have witnessed in a jags shirt, sorry to see you go but as i say all the best, Away the jags.

    Posted on

  535. Gutted wi the performance and result yesterday. Fort gave us a 2 goal start and still we qwidna see it oot.
    We got away wi them having a stone wall penalty at 2-1. We canna even say we missed a heep of chances. Why Shaun Wood was on the bench after his performances i dont know and Lewis was crocked roon aboot 60mins when the substitution came for Ian to come on abody inc Lewis couldna believe it fan Woody went aff. Well played Fort William they totaly deserved their 2nd point of the season.
    We have 4 tough games coming up against Forres, Cove, Wick and Brora play like that and weel get hammered in every game

    Posted on

  536. 3-3 with Fort William. WTF is going on.

    Posted on

  537. nae a lot to say aboot the days performance except the reaction at the end said it.
    I dinna agree wee the booing but Buckie were shocking the day and believe you me that must rank as one of oor worst performances.
    It says it all fan we are lucky to draw wee FW and please nae mair moaning aboot refs against Buckie.
    The shape of the team is a wrang,they are a colour blind and once again the wrang player drapped.

    Posted on

  538. A 0-0 draw with Fort William would have been very disappointing, but conceding three goals at home to them is a true sign of exactly where we currently are as a team. There should be no excuses offered by the management team for this result.

    Posted on

  539. why was shawn wood left on the bench today, he has played well every week, too many square balls being played too many passes going astray, no service to the forwards, very poor from the jags today

    Posted on

  540. Faraway Jag is spot on. The morn is a chance for us to mak it 4 wins on the bounce and wi plenty of the teams above us takin on each its a great chance to get right back in the mix.
    Joe to start again as he was very good last week and took his goal great.

    Posted on

  541. Could be a great day tommorow if we win and the rest of the results go our way, half the top teams have to drop points hopefully they all draw.
    Right in the mix by New Year should be the target,Finish the year with athumping of Lossie to set us up for 2013
    Cmon Haker and the Boys

    Posted on

  542. Well done to young Jo, valuable three points. Good assessment Buckiejo

    Posted on

  543. All that can be said aboot the days game is we won in a match played between two very poor teams,there was hardly any fitba the hale game played by baith teams.
    Some bizarre substitutions by Buckie heres hoping Woody was injured cos his replacement as usual was everywhere but his position nae wonder Kevin was screaming at him to get back
    The first half was the usual high ball junk by the jags.the goal came fae such a tactic though so it must pay.
    Roll on Fort William

    Posted on

  544. Totally agree with Thistlesting and we have to work at playing the ball on the ground more. Giving the ball away too easily

    Posted on

  545. Thistlesting,very good assessment of yesterdays game its a pity the management team dinna seem see it that way.The disappointing thing for me was it wisna a good team that won but fair dos to them their plan worked whereas oors never seems to,its the same every game noo but once again failed to take chances
    Interesting thats 3 home Scottish cups games and no goals, say no more.

    Posted on

  546. Really disappointed today after the Turriff game. I think the players gave everything, no criticism is fair for effort. I think the problem is with the shape and style of the team which is down to Gary Hake, not the players. His tactical awareness seems to be coming up way short now in many games and the players do not look cohesive. Nicky and Zander keep having to fight for scraps up front with the long ball continuing to be used to feed them. We struggle to provide enough quality balls to Pele out wide, so we are losing the use of a quality player. Movement off the ball is deplorable with no idea from our midfield of where to run to receive the ball and pull defenders out of position. Maybe we could utilise Parro's coaching qualifications to help organize the shape of the first team. Losing is not the worst if the team play well, but we are down at kick and chase level now. The lads got praised after last weeks game but we have to remember that Rothes, with sincere respect, are not among the best teams in the league. Turriff were set up well today and played to a gameplan, they always seemed to have a player available to pick up the loose ball. It's going to be a long season watching 50 yard thumps, but I'll be there to watch it anyway. We still have to support the team to the hilt.

    Posted on

  547. Hope tae see Jo Sutherland get a run out tomorow again..thought he had a great game at Rothes last week and made great use of the ball and also scored a great goal.great pace and could cause plenty problems for the defenders.Hooked up well with Nikki Smith

  548. sorry to hear aaron shand is injured with a hamstring. he and nicky smith were coming onto a good partnership

    Many Thanks

  552. Agree with Andrew, Shaun Wood surely one of the first picks now. Great composure, never panics and seems to read the game so well. His temperament is excellent too, never gets involved, which seems to add to his value for the team. He even had a few good bursting runs forward on Saturday. This young man is going to become a rock for Buckie, hope we can keep him though, as wouldn't be surprised if some higher level club starts sniffing around him

    Posted on

  553. Great performance by the team yesterday. Thought Nikki and Aaron have the start of a very good strike partnership and both are good on the ball. The midfield broke forward all the time with Clarky everwhere on the park and giving Turriff no time on the ball. The defence was excellent shame Lewis was porvoked by the Turriff player manager was a joke. great to have Chris Angus back and Shaun wood is so good he must be one of the 1st players on the teamsheet.
    All in all a superb team performance bring on the Rothes

    Posted on

  554. Good performance against Turriff. Nicky takin up some really great positions and could have scored more. With more games, he could be really lethal. Referee wasn't great, but our players should stop getting involved in onfield niggling. Another fine for a red card. GC will never learn, he was wound up after his yellow and could have walked again.

    Posted on

  555. Good to see Kris Angus having a kick about with the boys hope is is back playing soon. The games i have seen this years loads of chances being missed, yesterday 2 strikers on the bench who scored 65 goals between them one gets on for two minutes surely they both deserve a chance and lets see what they can do.

    Posted on

  556. Strikers are not scorin for one reason, they are not near fit enough or sharp enough, this is the case for many other players in the team. If they had the fitness o Jamie they would be gettin more success. I have witnessed the training a few times and to be honest, I think it's a joke, the youth development squads are worked harder. I do a bit of running and I could not keep running with the training they are doing. The team did well for a long period when down to ten men, Well done lads, get fitter and you would be right up the league.

    Posted on

  557. whit aboot playing some new signings in the forword line

    Posted on

  558. On Field dicipline let us down again today at Vale. These red cards have to stop. We still competed for long periods, but the two strikers are just not getting chances. Too much long balls to them to hold up. No creativity coming from midfield. Maybe NS would be worth a try, why did we buy him to sit on the bench? GC should not have been on that field today or ever again in my opinion. He does nothing with the ball and is a loose cannon waiting for another red card.

    Posted on

  559. Well done buckie over the two games you's maybe just shaded it.
    The wee man that come on in the 2nd half was really impressive and scored two excellent goals but for me your goalkeeper was the difference between the two teams, he broke a few hearts at the weekend with one of the best goalkeeping performances I have ever seen.
    All the best in your 3rd round tie

    Posted on

  560. Wow what a day yesterday was probably the best away day av had watchin fitba including Wick. The team were absolutely outstanding wi Zander adding the class.
    Our Annan hosts were superb before and after the match and have a great set up there.
    Will be missin the next round but am not worried as i think we should be more than good enough for the win
    A big thanks to Jammy for anither superbly run trip. Oni Jags

    Totally gutted i wont make Annan due to work but Liam will be there and Jags fan will keep me informed .
    Cmon the jAGS YOU CAN DO IT AND CMON THE MASSIVE MAKE SOME NOISE.

    Posted on

  570. Would like to thank all the supporters for making the Annan fans feel very welcome. The grand central and thistle bar where good boozers and the steak pies where something else. Nice set up and the only disappointing thing about the day was the wind playing factor in the first half. Draw was fair if anything Buckie maybe shaded it, as we still offer nothing up front with playing 4-5-1. Hope to see some of you's back down here on Saturday. We set off from Annan at 7.15am and stopped for a half hour at Perth and made the grand central for 12.30



    Mon the Annan

    Posted on

  571. Totally agree Jagsfan - game opened up 2nd half and we had changes to win it. Will be teuch in the replay, but the incentive o Turra in the next roon shid dee the trick. Mon i Jags!

    Posted on

  572. What a superb performance by us yesterday the team were brilliant and deserved the win. Nowt to fear gan doon tae Annan esp wi Zander and Davie back.
    The hale team was excellent but Lewis was best player on the park and young Shaun Carroll had a great game. Role on seterday

    Posted on

  573. Great performance second half yesterday, really good game to watch, encouraged by a few very good touches from Andy Gardiner when he came on, created a very good scoring chance for himself too. I would like to see more of Nicky Smith tho, he certainly cannot do nothing coming on with so little time left. He proved himself at Lossie, thats why we bought him!!! I thought Martin Charlesworth played OK, held up the ball well, but sometimes he seems very hesitant to challenge for balls convincingly. Disappointing attendance again

    Posted on

  574. whit's happened tae the young goal scorer shand signed this season@

    Posted on

  575. Good luck on Saturday.Hope it is a on the park job at the final whistle for the Fans.

  576. The weather up in Buckie has been arite famous last words but dont think there is any doubt over the match. Look forward to the game and hope the Annan fans hae enjoy their visit to BCK but go hame with a defeat :)

    Posted on

  577. Is this game in any doubt of being off? Should be around 30odd Annan fans making the long trek up the A9 setting off at 6am and 7am. Looking forward to the game and it has the makings of being a decent game.


    Mon the Annan!!!!

  579. Even tho gate money is nae the main income, it certainly helps. Is the supporters club meeting this week open to all members or just the supporters club committee

    Posted on

  580. Cmon the Jags on saturday, big crowd roaring them on and remember we have won some rare SC tie's with goals at the toonie end side of the ground, Good Luck -you never know the Gers may await the winners. 1-0 to the jags forecast

    Posted on

  581. I agree with vinny the income from fans paying through the gate winna pay the running costs these days , the crowd at the keith match didna look any more than 150 though.

    Posted on

  582. Attendances go up and doon wee performances. Bottom line hardcore support o aboot 150 so get worried when they drop tae that. Gate income nae as big a proportion o overa income nooadays, or so im telt by them that cane better.

    Posted on

  583. A few points on the lack of attendances
    1 prices to get in have gone up
    2 fans are now being charged for the stand
    3 a lack of promotion of the matches the buckie club website did not mention the keith game until saturday morning too late by then as people plan what they are doing at a weekend much earlier
    4 at yesterdays match i stood outside with dozens of other fans and waited to get in until finally at 2.30 they decided to open the gate
    5 money is tight with everyone these days and they need to treat their fans better

    Posted on

  584. Yes, sad to see the crowd dwindling a bit when we need as much gate money as possible. I sincerely hope it is not just because we are not challenging at the top of the league. Also, I hope Gary Clark does not go straight back into the team against Annan as I feel this would annoy many of the fans who are attending. He obviously does not have the correct temperament for this type of game and is not going to learn now at his age.

    Posted on

  585. Buckie are a gweed example of how not to play fitba, long ball game all the time, tryin tae ping ba's tae zander & Pele, easy meat for defenders, Davey is the only player who can pit his fit on the ba and try to dee somethin wi it. Kevin kicks the ba oot mest o the time, again straight to defenders mest o the time, Charlesworth not many chances due tae the lang ba, he obviously likes the ba tae his feet, bit has to chase it and challenge for heeders a the time wi the service he gets. Supporters usually git criticised by coaches as not kenning fit theyre talkin aboot, bit good few supporters played at least at the same level as Gary Hake and dee ken somethin aboot the game.

    Posted on

  586. Attendances have definately dropped this season but will probably come back if the team is doing well.

    Posted on

  587. Faraway jag,
    You can hae as much pressure as you like,goalies haeing great saves but at the end of the day goals win games and keith scored 2 jags scored 1

    Posted on

  588. I think we have a good idea as to why the attendances are dropping......

    Posted on

  589. Any summary on todays game appreciated, did Keith deserve their win ?

    Posted on

  590. Calling all jags fans, attendance this season seems to be dropping. Please come along and support the team as much as you can, especially with the Scottish cup tie coming up. Thanks all

    Posted on

  591. well results went oor wye this weekend. Think a win ower nae fans on seterday will get us right back into title contention. Chuffed for Jamie getting his goal.Nae gan to there on seterday gutted but hopefully the team will continue on fae yesterday. Oni Jags
