Surprised wee Kev came off so early TBH; thought he had another good game. Always surprises me how good he is at harrying opposition players when they have the ball, considering he's an attacking player.

Hope wee Adam Martin recovers from the graze on his knee that the physio spent so much time on  :P

Did the keeper bite him? Dirty bandit.

I tried chroma keying for some hilarity... Once I've finished the game. I may have a humorous video :lol:

very early doors (mid July) but the warning signs for a difficult season are there.  Poor in the final third and  I was surprised when we scored to be honest. We still are excellent in the middle of the park with Robertson and flannigan and we have class at the back but it's goals that win games. 

Early days but it was evident last night that the new signings have a learning curve to make up to come up to the standards set by players such as Cawley  flannigan and taggart. 

I really didn't think Arbroath were up to much and was expecting better from them especially coming up as champions . They still have McCord to come in for them though -a terrific player at this level.

We did huff and puff a lot in the final third, but we did enough to merit at least a draw. McKeowns goal was a beauty.

Robertson, Cawley and Flannigan all good as well as McDonald and Martin.

Can see the changes the managers trying to make- early days of course.

Enjoyed the game. Two teams who played football. Arbroath have a lot of ability in the final third. I thought they also defended well when we were on top, which we were for pretty much the whole of the second half.

 

Cook was poor and Arbroath dealt with Fleming and Renton well. So early days on those three. Might take a few weeks to gel/ get the balance right in an attacking sense. Obviously Malcolm needs to come into that mix.

Think the final article will be different.

Thought we were comfortable until Hammy went off, but McCord, Whatley, Swankie will also come in and Danny Denholm who I think will be one of our best players had an absolute holocaust last night, nowhere near upto speed.

Well off the pace last night, early days so i wont right off our season just yet.

Malcolm i was very impressed with in the previous weeks not so good that hes injured but thats football.

Think we are maybe a couple bodies short.

Arbroath offered very little other than the goal but neither did we.

Would've got more entertainment from throwing £16 down at the bus station and watching all the junkies fight each other for it. On top of everything already said the team looked like they hadn't even met each other before at times. Concerning stuff even this early on.

We're not as bad as made out to be. Definitely need a bit of guile up front but that was the same last year.

I don't think it was as bad as made out by some, but this time last year we were scoring for fun, pummelling teams.

That's very true.

 I've no reason to be in this thread at all, but just wanted to say the highlights package that Alloa have is utterly superb for a league 1 club. We've got a very good one ourselves, and it's good to see more and more clubs are heading along these lines.
