  2. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    We need GOOD players all over
  3. Arbroath v Airdrie

    Would be our best player by 2 country miles
  4. Arbroath v Airdrie

    I can't believe he doesn't play much. He had a year with us at same time as Tony Watt and Gary Mackay-Steven and was excellent.
  5. Arbroath v Airdrie

    Sorry for asking a really dumb question but what is a "Pongo"?

    Here are a few stats on McDonald as a central defender and the inclusion of Edwards. I've been very critical of McDonald as a left back, but been very impressed with him in central defence. 10 games we've had Edwards as LB or LWB with McDonald in a 3 or 4 at the back. In those 10 games we've conceded only 10 goals. So not hard to work out that averages 1 goal per game. We've also won 17 points in those 10 games, so 1.7pts per game. Over the course of the season that'd be the 2nd best goals conceded in the league, marginally behind Raith. Over the course of the season, we'd be in 3rd place even with this team. They've played 3 times in a back 4. Won 2 and lost 1 conceding only 2 goals - one of which happened after Edwards was subbed at 1-1. Way too small a sample size but definitely worth looking at further. As for the players, Edwards really looks the real deal. He's a cracking defender, really robust, he's switched on, great getting forward too and uses the ball well. As a full back, McDonald looks like he's trying to do too much and mistakes are highlighted, he seems to be preoccupied at times, and even though he has oodles of energy, his use of the ball can be frustrating. However at centreback, he seems much more alert and better positioned. And his added prowess at breaking forward or passing the ball out is far better than the other centre halves. There seems to be a growing evidence base that Brownlie and McDonald look like a half decent partnership in central defence, even though it kills me to say it.

    IMO, he's been much steadier there. And also, Edwards looks immense at LB. So we're far better off.

    The website is very professional, I'm presuming any complaint is re. the actual content? Again, there's codes of conduct re. The official output
  9. Airdrie v Rovers

    Would agree. Your team has fallen apart tbf. Losing my wee pal Connor has looked a sore one.
  10. Airdrie v Rovers

    He ran after the ref waving an imaginary card. Fcuking disgusting behaviour imho
  11. Airdrie v Rovers

    Think I'd rather have Truesdale instead
  12. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Lamie, Buchanan, Hutton, Ryan, I Russell
  13. Airdrie v Rovers

    Rohan McIntosh Brownlie McDonald Edwards Fry RBrown Conroy Hastie Russell Carrick Subs: Kerr, Leighton, Truesdale, Cowie, Thomson, Brown. Very young but wtf, play the hand you're dealt.
  14. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Too long ago now but it could be. Switched off marking at set pieces and sloppy passing
  15. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Sounds like his time here
