  1. Agreed and we would Love to see #WG33 back in blue
  2. Yeah I know there is nothing official but that is the story that is doing the rounds since it emerged in the paper yday aswell as Joao returning a guy who has turned us down the past 2 summers I wouldn't give him another opportunity. Did he play in the middle of the park for yous? I am led to believe he is now a striker, I would like to think there were younger, hungrier strikers playing at that level who could do a job and would jump at the chance to go senior.
  3. So the story goes, thought he had retired till I seen the new article yesterday. Good or bad signing who knows. 4 south of Scotland players up today with first team so we might hav a bit of dig out of the local lads.
  4. There was me just thinking it was a Stranraer thing. But we hump it long to the smallest player in our team. If we get a goal I will take a 1-0 clean sheets are scarce
  5. Who said about training in Stranraer? Never happen and would never work. Boys from Stranraer also feel as though they would have a given right to play not work hard and prove they are good enough to play which will also hinder some of there progress. What your complaining about is just a harsh reality of the support that we have but I could just about guarantee if we were winning games you would have more through the gates and also if the price was lowered to reflect whats being played on the park. I get that everyone will have an opinion on what the see but I dunno where you have come from with that speech, training, crowds, locals... what we have is a good few seasoned pros some of which have returned because the grass wasnt greener and a few KIDS that are learning the game. But dont be fooled by the kids as there arent that many of them in the squad now
  6. I really thought we had a squad capable of avoiding the drop aswell but in actual fact we dont. We have a team made up of decent players on paper but put them on the park and its the opposite. Connor is a good player but he needs time on the ball you dont get that at this level he has good 20min spells where everything goes through him then for the following 70 he is posted missing. I would love to see us back to a 4-4-2 I think you would see a different Stranraer side. Faz came in after Brian Reid in the Jan and we had a team that had good players that didnt like the manager that was easy for him to turn around, first season we had again a decent squad losing out shining ligts in the January, Wallace Belford and Bell (who wasnt playing well atall) finished the season 5th... last season again we looked a decent team on paper but we huffed and puffed all season long until the loan signings hit form in Ali McCann and Innes Cameron. This season has been poor so far to say the least. As for ginge and budgets at Stranraer I might be wrong but when he took over from knoxy his budget would have been less than what it is now And the following season after that his budget might have increased when we had Rangers in the league but that I am unsure of. But I would have him back in a heartbeat. Football that we seen under him was always exciting and if we conceded 3 you always knew we would score 2 or 3 maybe even 4.
  7. Grant Anderson has improved since leaving, Issac Layne has again improved since leaving as has Aggie, McGuigan, Tom Lang another who was deemed surplus but while we were shipping goals with Captain Fantastic at centre half Tam was allowed to move on and got a better move for himself. So to say Faz has done an excellent job I am sceptical. Yes he has kept us up but Brechin and Stenny were poor last year tbf I dont know how we scraped by. Games against Dumbarton, Peterhead and Clyde I would have expected some sort of return but to have zero and concede 11 goals and score 3 is pretty pathetic and the buck stops with the manager. 2 seasons running now we have started overloaded with defenders and zero strikers so it probably tells its own story why we cant score. Mark Stewart is a good player but ineffective as a lone striker. I struggle to see how we move away from the drop zone I think it will be very difficult with the current manager but he has 20 months to run on his two year deal so I am all aboard the league 2 express...
  8. Robert Jones, we signed him as an amateur hes only young and we are trying to make him better honest...... absolutely awful. He has played for BSC, Albion Rovers and East Fife and they all punted him so it was only fair that we gave him a go for when the going gets tough and we need a target man for the ball to bounce off.
  9. Who would take a change of manager? Personally I would we are by far the worst I have seen since Gerry and Knoxy. Bring back Ginge. Judge us in May, I am sorry Faz but May will be too late to judge
  10. Falkirk Forfar East Fife Raith Stranraer Airdrie Peterhead Clyde Montrose Dumbarton I think this will be a tight league this season again in terms of 2 to 10 Falkirk could possibly runaway with it. Stranraer have been very good imo this pre season no where near the same team as last season so fingers crossed we can continue it into the season and kick on. Optimistic for 5th but I cant see us fighting relegation if we get off to a good start.
  11. Big Luke has the ability but with that ability you need some commitment, heart and desire and he lacks that in abundance. Glimpses of magic in a game then hides the rest. I wasn't to saddened when he left in January. Would happily take Spence
  12. what a keeper he will be in league 1. Anyone want Grant Anderson?
