    I'm hoping we make a couple of decent signings. Given decent money was on the table for Sibbald/McInroy and Adeloye. I'd take a punt on Allan, he's a class act and would be a standout at this level (assuming he stays fit).

    Personally I think Allan, though undoubtedly quality, would be an expensive risk. I suspect he would be injured more times than he would be fit and that’s not the type of signing we need with such a small squad.

    I remember saying on here after McGinty had a year extension put on his contract that I was really concerned about the prospect of him being our starting centre half this season. Think I remarked that because of the guys character I didn't mind him being around too much but felt we were going to need better options. 

    I'm glad that so far (on the back of the last few months of last season and so far this season) he has really proved me wrong. Have grown to quite like him and was delighted for him getting the goal on Friday night. Long it may it continue. Must be said that the comfort I have with him starting is helped significantly by Musonda being next to him. Frankie is a baller.

    To think people were wanting Baird to play ahead of him last season. Shows what we know about team selection sometimes.

    In all my years, I've never seen a second half collapse like that. We should have been out of sight in the first half; hard to understand what happened.

    I don't grudge Ayr their win, but that's never a penalty. Imagine the guy giving that in an Old Firm game? He'd be back to the local BB league next week.

    And so we move on.

    Are you for real? So it’s okay to mis control a ball in the box hit it off your own hand which is making your body shape much bigger and it’s not a penalty? I’m sorry but stonewaller all day long.

  4. It’s not about moaning it’s about seeking improvement and trying to be at the right end of the league. Yes second half last night was great and everyone played their part but we are short of quality to be top end rather than bottom end. I’m all for supporting the team but if you want to have a successful season you have to be realistic with the squad we currently have.

  5. Well that was an interesting game. First half we were an absolute disgrace and Queens Park looked pretty decent and deservedly took a 2-0 lead. Bryden’s miss when straight through summed our performance up.

    second half we were a totally different team. Been a long time since I’ve seen us go from zeros to heroes from 2-0 down. Btw Eze is the largest player I have ever seen that can’t win a header since Kevin James signed for us.

    I liked the look of Chalmers at ICT last year and thought he would of been in and about the United 1st team this season however was he not more of a winger than a central forward? 

    I guess him buzzing about off Dipo could maybe work. 

    He’s on the bench tonight and so as a squad member I doubt he’ll be sent out on loan.

    In his report Campbell saying we are a lot better than last year, and had to defend for their lives to get a point, interesting to hear what another manager thinks about us, and sending off was a stonewalled saved his side losing the game.

    I think rather than us being better than last season it’s more that Arbroath are way worse than last season. Bottom 5 for both teams unless a few rabbits are pulled out the hat. Both teams could play all year and not score.

    Need to sign a forward next week, keeping the team as is will just yield the same result. Would keep Albinson in goal and swap McGinty for Kirk.

    Really, looking at that team I've got no idea who is most likely to score the first league goal. Bryden probably looks the most likely.

    McGinty was solid today

    Does he have a say who comes in or out or is that tv analist guy who picks the players that comes in, Also if you look at the 6-7teir of English football and look at the 6-7 teir of football up here it's teams in the lowland lge and lower than that 

    English 6th tier is far higher quality than Scottish 6th tier. All down to population density I guess
