  1. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    It's very disappointing to lose again when by all accounts we should have won, but it's important to see things in perspective. Sure, it would be great to make the playoffs but given our desperate situation a few weeks ago, the priority this season has to be avoiding relegation while the new regime gets a chance to bed in. I'm sure we'll do that given the quality of the 2 signings. We may not be finished in the transfer market yet. I'm sure Findlay knows where the problems are. As fans, we have to be positive after all the years of misery. My initial feelings about the new regime are very favourable.
  2. Stranraer v Airdrie

    See post from Moonball a few up.
  3. Stranraer v Airdrie

    Some may find it strange for me to be defending Ferguson but I think critising him for the second goal a bit harsh. Did I not read that we are eying up the QP goalie?
  4. Stranraer v Airdrie

    Wasn't there so cannot comment on who deserved to win but wasn't really surprised at result given our poor away form and the fact that Stranraer is not a happy hunting ground for us. We did appear to have a lot of shots at goal. Most worrying thing is that it is reported that Carrick was taken off injured. Must have been a new formation to cope with team changes.

    I don't know that much about Carrick but it's really good news that we're forward planning. Under the Ballantyne regime it was basically a new team every season. The new regime have certainly hit the ground running.

    Hope so. Fingers crossed. Has been on the Livi site for ages.

    A bit disconcerting that Carrick deal not yet on out OS yet?
  8. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    I'm struggling to understand the above. Is anyone else?
  9. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    According to the full statement, we are reverting to evening training which clash with his radio commitments. Presumably Findlay will be able to attend in the evenings so there might not be a gap. I know Dalziel was not popular with fans because he couldn't attend matches but if it is true that he wasn't getting paid I for one am grateful to him for holding things together during what must have been a very difficult period.

    Great news. Also good to see money made available to strengthen squad.

    Magic. Another step on the journey. Maybe the Consortium are going to keep Ann Marie on for a while for admin?
  12. Airdrieonians v East Fife

    The Club have not yet said Watt and Hastie have left the Club yet. They have specifically said that Allan and Tierney are away but not mentioned the Motherwell players. I'm hoping they're still with us.
  13. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    One player who I really hope we try to sign next year is Parry if his Alloa deal is up. My understanding is that he is an Airdrie fan and he only left us because he wanted to stay part-time.
  14. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Great to get McGregor. Shows we have at least some money to spend. Planning for next season will have some challenges. If we are going part-time (which I agree with) how many of the present squad would be interested? Potentially we will be targeting almost a whole new set of players.
  15. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Despite this report there is nothing on official site and match preview says we have a full squad apart from Conroy. Strange.
