  1. Yeah a few teams have strengthened. Still plenty of time but we have a fair number signed already so reckon we could be looking at at two or three loans and that’s about it!
  2. I agree that it’s not the best draw but there is always a chance of getting Hibs , Hearts etc. It’s better than the previous boring pre season friendlies and of course with the draw being regionalised you are always going to play the same teams frequently. Think Spark has been captain since Darryl went on loan. Think Soapy maybe inherited it for a couple of games prior.
  3. Not necessarily, with a reduced season I would imagine they will go with a smaller squad. Looks like they want to spend their money on likely starters.
  4. I definitely have sympathy for the younger players as it’s vital they see a path to the first team. That said it’s a big step from Academy to first team. These lads have been on loan in the HL and I would trust that if the management team thought they were ready Or good enough they would be in the running for a start and therefore getting a first team contract. All is not lost though. A decent season or two in the HL and they could easily come back.

  6. Decent enough player at our level but was not a guaranteed starter. As has been said played in a variety of positions and you could never pin him down and say what his best position was. Discipline also a problem. IMO he is a good yard of pace short for Championship level. There are better midfielders at Elgin and most other teams in the division. Horses for courses though, you never know.
  7. Once they start training you got to start paying.
  8. It’s interesting to hear everybody’s thoughts on things and how things are shaping up. Long way to go till season starts and loads of players about. At the moment IMO we are weaker than we were last season’s end. We are minus Sutherland, Graham, Omar, McPhee and McKay. The last 3 I think can be covered by the additions and younger ones but a decent striker and centre half with a bit of experience is where we need to strengthen. I don’t see any of our other defenders having the quality to adequately replace Graham although I don’t know anything about the Stirling Uni lad. He could go with finding a defensive midfielder to cover the defence instead? QP are the money team this year and with a quality defence already signed and Bob McHugh in as a striker they look clear favourites and I would think not much between the rest of us. If we have ambitions of promotion I think we need a couple of good signings in.
  9. No he’s out of contract. Don’t know if we’ve offered him a new deal.
  10. Can’t argue with that but that may be the way of things at a lot of clubs.
  11. In these difficult times it’s the youngsters who always seem to lose out. All depends on how you look at things. We want to retain the youngsters but at the same time is the team going to be stronger short term with them playing regularly. You could also ask what are the youngsters priorities, getting a contract or getting more dosh at another club. Difficult one all round.
  12. Can’t see him staying at Formartine. Take you pick from Elgin, Brora or Rothes.
