  1. The Alloa Athletic Thread

    Love it because we have gone bottom of the league for the first time in ages (by two points), we are not allowed to give the team plaudits and say it’s not a successful season. Still challenging, unlike the part-timers last year and with significantly less budget than our rivals this year. Also, couple of good cup runs. Obviously, a lot of things we can do better this season. However, people getting pedantic when we try praise the team is a bit much!

    Rangers apparently in advanced talks with Jake Hastie. Far from finished article but what a month from a great player. Feel like we didn’t use or appreciate him as much as we should’ve when we had him!
  3. Athletic (A) vs Athletic (D)

    From an Alloa perspective I’d love it if Smith started at the expense of one of the more experienced attackers!

    Looking for a modern-ish birds eye photo of the recs for the programme. Anyone got any?
  5. The Alloa Athletic Thread

    Coming on here to have my say about Alloa today. So, so frustrating! First half I thought we were good on the ball and looked comfortable in the game. The goals a gift. Slack defending and too easy - Robbo had been told by Goodwin no more than five minutes prior to get tighter and side on to his man. As great a footballer and battler Robbo is and Dick’s mistakes the past few weeks, don’t think the switch worked. Caught out a few times. Our goal was a great passage of play from Robbo and Dario especially. Neat finish and run too. Second half we come out so poorly. Another poorly defended goal and our heads seemed down after that. Not really in the second half at all. Ok - we’re not getting the breaks but we do make things hard for ourselves with needless gifts! Bigger picture - still in a good position. However, need some confidence back and more solidity at the back. Liam Dick back in next week and Kevin Cawley too. Think Kirky needs to drop out, off the pace today.
  6. Not looking forward to this. Surely can’t be as bad as Falkirk at home last time ...! Things just not falling for us the past few weeks, we have been making it harder for ourselves with some questionable defending which isn’t usual. Roscoe back ... [emoji1317]

    A quiet deadline day for us - that’s it all done. What we rating the window? Getting the extensions of the key loanees probably our best bit of business imo. Kirkpatrick coming back on a 18-month deal also a great piece of business. Like last season will take him time to hit the ground running but once he does, no doubt will be key. Hamilton seems a good option too according to reports and works out for all parties with it also paving the way for Greig to move on and get games. Aitchison definitely has a point to prove after an unsuccessful spell at Dumbarton (to be fair, they all seem to be struggling down there). If he can have even have a percentage of the impact Hastie had then that’ll do. I do think we could’ve done with one more signing to top it off. A defensive minded cover would have been good. Especially if Zak gets his move away today, even though he doesn’t play that’s one defender less for training,squads etc. Still plenty options with Robbo, Taggs, Dick and Stevie moving all across back four. Anyways, big month ahead as Jim says. Let’s hope the new boys can hit the ground running with the run of vital home games!

    Agree with Redwedge about another option there... what’s Gaz Fleming up to? [emoji848]
  9. The Alloa Athletic Thread

    A type of player we don’t really have. I thought he did quite well at Dumbarton and Brechin, scoring quite a few goal. Definitely a better player than we had a few years back. Would make us a bit top-heavy but is Aitchison really a back up striker? Probably not. Going to be deployed more on the wing and the impact he’ll have may not be great. Thomson back up and competition to Dario wouldn’t be a bad thing but doubt he’d sit on our bench rather than Morton’s. An upgrade on Spence in this league, however.
  10. Ross County vs Alloa Athletic

    Think we’ll struggle in this one, hardest place to go in the division I’d say. Getting Kirky and Flannigan back will be massive - two calming presences in the midfield. Not sure where Aitchison fits in the team and with no real physical presence, it’s hard for him to make an impact off the bench. A strange signing but one I’m happy and wouldn’t be surprised to be proved wrong! Take a draw... 1-1. Ross Stewart equalising with 94 minutes on the clock.
  11. If we’ve lost two of our most key midfielders to a wedding and gentlemen’s agreement ... that will be very, very frustrating. Better be his own wedding!! [emoji38]

    Greig Spence to Arbroath confirmed, 18-month deal. All the best to him. Interesting insight on interview! A real shame it didn’t work out like he said. Also sad to hear that his time here pretty much finished him. Glad he still holds the club in high regard though.
