  1. Summer Transfer Window '18

    Would be pleased with that. If we'd like to go for Spence then that'd be better though. Connor McManus has joined Stranraer from East Fife: http://www.stranraerfc.org/index.php/77-latest-news/1197-mcmanus-signing

    Fair enough, I didn't know that. Remember hearing about the Cowden rumour, but assumed it was just online talk. Surprised Clyde weren't all over him tbh.

    I think we can all assume that's the last we have seen of him. Was it not June before his case was heard? If so, I would expect the usual curt one liner along the lines of he's left the club. Aye I know it was certainly the end of the season. Just not having clarity means I can't update his Wiki page - which is bothering me quite a bit! There was an 'internal investigation' and he didn't play again, but I'm not sure his contract was terminated. I guess it would count as gross misconduct, but he's still an innocent man until proven otherwise, so he presumably could've fought against it he wanted. Who knows.

    On the subject of the website, I take it that he who shall not be named (or put on POTY voting forms) is gone. Just struck me he's still on our Wiki page, but I can't see him pulling on a Sons top again. Nothing about him on the last statement: http://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=3607

    Falkirk. Was at Hamilton before that, but I remember him most from his time with Queen of the South and Cowdenbeath playing against us. Would be excellent for us imo. Considerably better than Fleming, who's been at fault for goals almost every time I've seen him play against us over the past few seasons.

    Meh. Fantastic at penalties, terrible at crosses. Is Conor Brennan a free agent? I noticed from his Twitter that he's an academy coach at Motherwell with Jamie. Would probably be looking for a consistent run of games for the first time in his career too - and was in the Raith team that got relegated. Ticking all our boxes. Edit: BBPF's shout of McCrorie is a screamer actually. Believe he was excellent at Berwick - so I'd like to think that Durrant's staunchness could help tempt him to the Rock.

    This is strange. *looks around, lightbulb appears* "I know what will make this feel like home" Anybody have their eyes set on a goalkeeper? Robbie Thomson would be my number one target without question, but I've no idea how realistic that is.

    Dowser signed up for next season. Excellent news. If we can keep Mango and him together then we certainly shouldn't concede many in League 1.
  10. Sons' sorrow

    Oné and Scullion. That would be a perfect partnership.
  11. Sons' sorrow

    Shame, he sounded as if he would've been ideal. Guess we'll need to hope that Armand Oné is still without a better offer.
  12. The Alloa Athletic Thread

    I was one of Gallacher's bigger fans, but to be honest he looked like an absolutely broken shell of a 'keeper at first. He strikes me as very much a confidence player, and that was obviously shattered by his disastrous time at St Mirren, and then six months of kicking his heels at Hibs. Early on it was evident (well to me anyway) that he had the attributes to be a very decent goalkeeper, but the more time you gave him, the more mistakes he made. He could make an instinctive close range stunner of a stop with ease, but hang a cross into the air and he'd panic and make a complete mess of things. It was as if he thought about everything that could go wrong, and then proceeded to make every mistake he could think of. His Dad (I think) and Mrs were sat behind me early in the season, and almost every time he had to make a proactive decision they just about went crazy ("Aw Jesus Christ, Scott, what are you doing"). He took a few rollockings from Andy Dowie in that time for his hesitancy, and our notoriously hard to please with goalkeepers home support got on his back. Gradually he started to iron out the errors, but you always felt that he had a howler in him. Fortunately a smashing performance against TNS paved the way for a solid end to the season. He still made a few mistakes, but his decision making was more proactive, and his shot-stopping was outstanding at times. I'll decide when I know who his replacement is whether or not I'm sad to see him go. If it's someone like Robbie Thomson then Stevie's a genius, if it's someone like (and I know he's signed for Airdrie, which is why I'm using him as an example) David Hutton, then I think Gallacher will look better and better by the week.

    Stranraer sign former Dumbarton defender David Smith http://www.stranraerfc.org/index.php/77-latest-news/1196-smith-signing Nice of Airdrie to allow another club in the league one of our former players.
  14. That's a cracking signing. I know he's a bit mad, but I thought he was excellent against us both times we faced him last season - especially in the home game where it took two smashing late goals to finally beat him.
