  1. Arbroath v Airdrie

    Whatley is a must start for me also. Great return to the lineup for him in Saturday.
  2. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Panicking in case we brought flares to throw on the pitch.... Probably didn't bother frisking the home fans as you wouldn't damage your own pitch would you [emoji848]
  3. Out of interest do the Rovers fans think they would have had a better or worse points tally if Smith hadn't left? You were unbeaten in the league up to that point.
  4. Wasn't the best of games from us with the constant long balls not doing anything but we looked dangerous with the ball on the deck and when we got it wide. A superb composed finish from Hammy for the goal that most other players on the pitch probably would have lashed at. Second half just invited rovers on and they created nothing. Could have possibly had a couple of breakaway chances if it wasn't for a couple of professional fouls.
  5. The Arbroath Thread

    East Fife are probably our nearest rivals now. Be a big game on the 26th
  6. The team picked itself at the start of the season. Now we seem to chop and change all the time. We need a consistent starting 11.
  7. Arbroath vs Stranraer

    I agree with this but how is Spence supposed to get match fit without playing matches?
  8. I'm hoping for a win but would take a draw.
  9. Arbroath vs Stranraer

    I think we need Whatley back in the team. Far more points gained when he was playing. Donnely should be 5th choice based on performance so far. Should have had the game out of sight in the first half. Don't understand booing your team regardless of how poor they play.
  10. The Arbroath Thread

    Scores goals, keeps clean sheets and a good passer of the ball but we should just drop him for a player who doesn't even have a club. Hammy has had a good season and I don't think there are many better left backs at this level.
  11. Arbroath vs Stranraer

    Not sure but I remember a game with East Stirlingshire being called off with about 10 minutes to go. Keeper had a bucket of sand to tee up goal kicks and at one point he saved his own goal kick which I'm sure is not allowed. Apart from that the boxing day fixture with Stirling was called off after about 3 minutes. You could barely stand up the wind was that strong.
  12. Arbroath vs Stranraer

    Standard coaching in any league you watch. Full backs always tuck in. Hammy has been excellent for months but a bit exposed against Forfar so gets the stick for it. Nobody plays well every week but he's been one of our better players at times this season without any plaudits. He's not perfect which is why he's playing in League 1 and not still at Hearts.
  13. The East Fife Thread

    I think that this competition should be limited to Scottish league clubs and Pyramid structure only and recent events prove this. If Irish teams play in all conditions and games don't get called off for frozen pitches as BohsMan suggests then maybe the club did think it would be played. We used to play over here in all sorts of weather but don't now for some reason. What I don't get is that if fans don't want foreign teams to be invited and think this cup is a waste of time why go and travel and watch it? Just makes the organisers think they have got it spot on.
  14. The Arbroath Thread

    I think he could do a job there based on watching his forward runs from full back. I don't think it's his best position and I don't think he would be anywhere near getting picked for it but thought I'd throw it in there. I would be shocked to see him there but McKenna has played there this season and nothing makes me think that he could be a winger either.
