  1. A wee bit unfair perhaps, the injury at Arbroath that finished his last stint was a freak occurance same as Thomson's injury at Stenny and the broken jaw against Dundee It's U19s could have happened just as easily to Cuthbert had he been in goal that day.
  2. Not too fussed at Lyness leavi g tbh. Aaron is a great bloke who was desperately unlucky with injuries (particularly the DUFC u19 breaking his jaw) and wouldn't be the worst signing. I'm not sure signing another centre half is the best use of resources but if the new French guy comes and it goes well then all good and well. In McGlynn we trust. Hopefully it can all slot nicely into place and gel some by the time the real action starts.
  3. I would suppose so given a 1/3 of his tally was against us.
  4. In those days any crowd of 3000 was considered a poor for one of those fixtures. Between 5 &7k was the norm for Pars games and you could rely on Falkirk and Dundee for 1.5 - 2.5k of an away support.
  5. No argument from me on who was the better and hungrier side nor though who got the luckier with injuries. Arbroath sustained no lengthy let alone season ending injuries and as such being able to field virtually the same 1st choice players proved to be massive, I doubt that they will carry such fortune 2 seasons running.
  6. Loving this twenty past one haddie coming on and dismissing an unfinished squad and quoting the Division as being stronger without his all conquering hero's in it. Let's look at Rbroath instead, signed nobody and appears will attempt survival with much the same guys who admittedly did well last term. Am I right in saying they only used 19 players in the league last season? Do they think this is the norm and can be repeated? I prophocise them doing a Brechin, perhaps not quite so spectacularly (who could?) but barring reconstruction (or QotS not signing anyone at all) relegation none the less.
  7. True, but they weren't 2 that they were planning to be released/lost. Therefore I'd wager those guys will be replaced perhaps not directly but in some measure (eg a loanee or/and maybe a fullback)
  8. Last week we lost Murray and Nisbet, that's two starting slots to fill and 2 wages freed up to do so. More sorry to have lost Nizzy but unless McGlynn can find a ready made replacement within budget then a loan man it'll have to be. I'd rather Murray's wage was used to bring in a RB and Bene, McKay and Davo were used as centre backs.
  9. So just to be clear your preference is both for a right back and a Wright back too? I too am hoping that McGlynn brings in a genuine RB as my preferred central partnership would also be Dave and Bene.
  10. This^^^ Depending on who is still to come I can see some of there likes of Tate, Smith, Bowie and Watson going out on loan.
  11. And Watson too. Highly irrelevant but I know but If we had a friendly to play today I'd start with; McGurn Watson, McKay, Bene, Macdonald Spencer, Henry, Matthews, Anderson, Bowie and Victoria. Obviously Vaughan and Dingwall would feature if fit but it'd still be a decent team. Still required; A keeper (on 6month loan? or pick up a part time guy) A right back Winger/midfielder 2 strikers
  12. Looking at who's been released/allowed to leave I'm not unhappy with any of them apart from Nizzy. Crane, didn't show anything like previous years with Alloa form. Murray, finance dictated either he, Bene or McKay had to go. If Bene gets his form back he's a better defender than Murray. Gillespie, not what we hoped he'd be, didn't turn up often enough. Wedderburn, too frigging slow. Gullan, still raw and might have come good but we need better on loan. Flanagan, heart of a pea! Barjonas, we will see him again most probably somewhere like Albion Rovers, pish! Valentine, not ready and no finance to carry him forward. Berry & Stevenson, as above. Duggan, would have kept if wasn't such an injury risk. Buchanan, didn't have 90ins in the legs, time to go. Nizzy, will be missed but maybe not by all. Heard rumours he was a lazy trainer and wasn't everyone's favourite guy.
  13. Right that's all of the players signed up that I'd be happy to keep, the rest are replaceable imo. Gillespie is a good player on his day but in the games I saw (about 75%) of them those days were too infrequent, let him go to Airdrie if he likes. Lyness is mediocre as keepers go, outstanding in the playoffs but we have released better keepers in the past and had better ones on loan recently, for that reason I'd let him go and bring in a lonee or sign a youngster for the future, what a pity Rory Brian was driven off. Still to come I'm hoping for: 2 defenders 2 forwards 1 keeper.
