  1. Come On Ye Mo - Montrose FC 2018/19

    Pretty sure 8-1 wasn’t the average score tbh.
  2. The Sons 2018/19

    Some signing for the Sons that. Especially in addition to Forbes. Obviously there is still a bit of work to be done but looks like you guys have the basis of a very good team. Possibility of your starting XI actually being stronger than your team in the Championship last year.

    Received the email too as well as a note that all people that renew before 30th of June have the incentive/reward of being entered into a draw to win the new away top. Regardless of whether it was already in the pipeline or if there is actually somebody reading here it’s good work by the club, fair play.

    Slow uptake on season tickets after a failure of a season and then sticking with the manager responsible for that failure? Who’d of thunk it!? It’s old ground on the manager and it won’t change now so no point going over it but I’d imagine it should be pretty obvious to the club season ticket sales will be comfortably down this season. I’d also be very surprised if your post suddenly changed anyone’s mind into buying a season ticket. I will get one eventually, as I’m sure most on here will. But I’d class any football fan posting on a football forum amongst the ‘hardcore’. It’s the more casual fan who’s uptake will affect the numbers and budget more and those numbers will almost certainly be down due to the clubs decisions and performance on and off the field over the last couple of years. In danger of this becoming a rant but why don’t the club email/post out to all season ticket holders who haven’t renewed? A personal touch can go a long way. I’ve always thought there should be incentives for season ticket renewals instead of it being taken for granted also. Returning customers should receive some sort of reward even if it’s something as simple as £10 off your renewal or a discount for the club shop.

    I’d say a right back is needed more than a left back. Not sure Watson is ready to be relied upon as first choice. Murray at left back with Bene and Davo at CB and a new signing at right back is a solid back 4. Somebody able to play comfortably on both sides would be ideal. Someone like Gary Irvine but only not old and passed it.

    Not listened to the interview but surely he means we are 3 players away from a team i.e 11 players? Not including the youngsters promoted we have 8 senior players signed up for next season so that would make sense. Sure there will be more signings on top of that as is already indicated with talks for another keeper and striker.
  7. The Sons 2018/19

    Yeah that makes sense, seems Dumbarton had a bloated and oversized squad last year so a lot of the reduction can be done by trimming the dead wood and not affecting the quality too much. Certainly a very good start to business, Craig Barr will absolutely stroll this league. A good quality keeper and striker and you’ll be looking strong.
  8. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I’m not particularly excited by the Duggan signing but it’s hard to take some of the reviews by the East Fife fans seriously. Was he not their best player just a couple of months ago? I wonder what changed their minds...
  9. The Sons 2018/19

    Ross Forbes would be an excellent signing for Dumbarton. Would be the first signing from a rival club this summer that I’d be jealous of. I know Dumbarton have barely signed or re-signed anyone yet but do you think if you get this over the line it suggests your budget may not be as tight as previously feared? Or do you think Aitken is just going for quality over quantity and you will be running with a small squad? Either way great signing if it comes off. Disappointing.
  10. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Not surprised, been coming a while. Sure he will be a big miss as he did a great job with the youth team and was very enthusiastic and active in the community side of things. However, he has also been involved with 2 first team season failures, although I’m not sure what, if any, input he had amongst the various management teams so that is perhaps unfair. Interesting change of tone in the statement, hopefully moving away from the ‘Can’t stand in his way’ comments were used to seeing.
  11. Surely Hopkin is looking at the clubs Jack Ross is being linked with and thinking he can do better than Carlisle?
  12. The Arbroath Thread

    Anyway, I’d be a little surprised if we signed McIntosh. He was training with us last pre season and we never offered him a deal. Don’t really see what he did at Arbroath last season that would cause a U-turn.
  13. The Arbroath Thread

    Fact is we could sign the last 11 posters on this thread and we’d still finish above East Fife. Probably still beat them 4 times too.

    I wouldn’t be too disappointed to see Thomson go. He’s been a great servant but probably better he goes now before his stock drops further in fans eyes and damages the way he’s remembered. He’ll certainly suit Dick Campbell’s style of football! There doesn’t seem to be too many replacements jumping out though, decent right backs seem to be pretty thin on the ground which maybe edges me towards wanting him to stay. Is the lad Ballantyne that was on loan at Montrose and just been released by Dundee United a right back? He might be a decent option, highly rated by the Montrose fans.
