Broomfield Stomp - Free to good home
Morning all, it's with great reluctance that I type this message but I am handing in my resignation to Sportnetwork and stepping down from the Broomfield Stomp due to work commitments and for personal reasons. Last season I never attended a single away game and missed at least five home games and that status will not improve this upcoming season, in fact if anything I'm only going to get busier in my personal life so it's time to pass on the baton.
World Cup Prediction League 2018
Let me start by thanking everyone for their participation in the 2017 - 2018 competition. Being a part of the competition and watching it come down to the final day once again was probably the most excitement we had all season. Entry to the World Cup 2018 Prediction league will cost £5.40 - £5 going towards a 2018 – 2019 season ticket and unfortunately 0.40p going to Paypal. The winner will receive a voucher towards a season ticket to the value of the cash raised from the entries. The Broomfield Stomp will put in £25 but we I will not be entering. The competition will start with the kick off, of the first match in the 2018 World Cup.

Prediction League game 36 - Airdrie 1 Vs. 2 Forfar
I have never been so happy to walk out of a season early, like every other Airdrie fan I think I've suffered some sort of penance this season and I am glad it's over and done with and at the moment I don't even want to think about next season never even mind look forward to it.
Prediction league Games 35
The penultimate update of this seasons prediction league as a injury strewn Airdrieonians travelled to Arbroath. With Airdrie playing for pride and Arbroath fighting for position in the promotion playoffs it may have been a foregone conclusion.
Prediction league Games 33 and 34
Isn't it brilliant being in the only league in Scotland where absolutely nothing has been decided, I'm blatently ignoring the SPL and the split and all that bollocks. The Ladbrokes Scottish League division 1 has it all to play for, no one knows whose going up, know one knows whose going down. A few teams are secure in the division (sigh of relief) but other than that it's still all to play for.
Prediction league Games 30, 31 and 32
Airdrie have four games to go in the SPFL League 1 and I for one was hoping we would be sitting comfortably in no mans land with no fear of relegation or a relegation play off spot and no need to worry about promotion play offs. Well it doesn't look like it's meant to be once again it looks like the Dimaonds faithful will be on tender hooks right to the last minute, exciting isn't it?

Airdrie travelled to East Fife on the 10th of March and were stunned by a quick goal from Chris Duggan after only 13 minutes, Airdrie fought back and equalised through Daniel Higgins on the half our mark but it was East Fife who would have the final say when Kyle Wilkie Scored on the 92 minute.On Tuesday the 13th of March we faced Stranraer, after only 3 minutes Stranraer were awarded a penalty after a sloppy tackle and Kyle Turner slotted home. 10 minutes later referee John McKendrick awarded Airdrie with the second panalty of the game and Ryan Conroy levelled the score.

Having just realised i'm four matches behind I thought it was time I caught up with the prediction league ahead of tonights rescheduled Alloa game. There is not one of us that doesn't know survival is the key this season and on the 3rd of Feb we took a step towards that when we beat Forfar away from home, a single goal separated the teams and it ws scored by Dale Carrick on the 40th minute match. Our next outing was on the road again, this time to League Leaders Raith Rovers Airdrie took the lead when Dale Carrick slotted home on the 44th minute but Raith have proven to be a team who like to come from behind and this match was to be no different, Willis Furtado got the equaliser for Raith on 63 minutes and then the winner was cored by Lewis Vaughan on 76 minutes.
Prediction League Match 21 & 22
A little catch up for the prediction league after a loss against Stranraer and a home draw against Arbroath at the weekend. Stranraer 3 vs 2 Airdrie a day of unfortunate events that utimately lead to Airdries first loss in six games Dale Carrick opened the scoring for the Diamonds before a Stephen Okoh double put Stranraer in the lead. Willis Furtado then got Airdrie back in to the match only to see Angus Beith settle the match for Stranraer and give the home time the win. Airdrie 0 - 0 Arbroath <- and that was all she wrote! That by line is probably an injustice we took a point from a team above us in the league and we got another shut out but from a fans point of view that was an awful game in crap weather.
