    Elgin City
  1. Elgin City 2018/19

    I would drop him for a defensive midfielder hopefully the new boy allowing Cameron to play further forward. JP is unable to defend now in midfield due to his lack of pace though funnily enough I quite liked him at the back where he read the game well and his distribution was excellent. His lack of pace there, however, would still be a problem. Not doubting his ability but he just struggles now in that midfield role. He has been a very loyal servant to Elgin which is more than you can say for some others in the semi or professional game!
  2. Elgin City 2018/19

    Let's hope the manager plays these new players as we are going nowhere with the present squad in the same positions week after week. Time to drop McGovern? I doubt if the manager will do this.
  3. Elgin v Cowden

    Comfortable win for Cowdenbeath who are much improved with Jordan Allan outstanding. The less said about Elgin the better. Cowdenbeath were so more proactive, quicker and had far more desire. Elgin were completely lacking in leadership on and off the park. I said some time ago we may finish near the bottom. Elgin under Price have been steadily declining since Jim Weir left. The board must seriously consider his position. If he is on a 2 year contract this could be expensive. While we are safe for this season if Price continues for next season we are heading back to the Highland league. Price continues to play the same system and players every week and it is so predictable. He moans about defensive mistakes but it seems the once a week training together is not working and the failure to organise the team properly lies entirely with the manager. Heaven help us at Hibs next week! I imagine the Elgin support there will be minimal given the present situation.
  4. Annan v Elgin

    Thanks Jim for the info
  5. As it appears both sets of supporters are equally apathetic I thought I would comment on Gavin Price's comments in the P& J today. In fairness to him I was not at the game but for the second week Gavin is blaming a sending off for the team losing. As with last week I suspect we lost the game simply because we were not good enough. The highlights certainly favour Annan but was anyone at the game who could offer a view.
  6. Elgin City v Peterhead

    Peterhead were streets ahead of us today and should have won by a much larger margin. The sending off did not help but Peterhead were already in full control. There is a big gap now between the top 3 and the others. There is no balance to this Elgin side and they need fresh and hopefully better players. The constant changes of formation is not helping and if Morrison goes back to Ross County we have little cover up front. I fear for us at Hibs in the cup. Anyone know what happened to Craig Beattie today as nowhere to be seen? Has he been released. Once again Chris McLeish was out of his depth and Brian Cameron was playing too deep . I like McGovern but he is too slow for midfield. Worrying times for the City.
  7. Edinburgh Vs Elgin

    Not at this game but the usual defensive problems I see. 33 goals lost in 16 games is unacceptable. Can anyone report on the game?
  8. Elgin City vs Albion Rovers

    Agree that Soapy had his best game for a long time and his link up play with Shane was a joy to behold and as Thom and Gerry says was reminiscent of two seasons ago. However Albion were poor and allowed us to play. Agree we should have gone for more goals when going 4-1 up but Elgin teams don't go for the jugular in these situations and seem happy to settle for what they have. The next three games are a different kettle of fish and any points gained will be a bonus given our defensive problems. Morrison was effective in the first half but without any end product. I do not rate Kerr and while he works hard he contributed little of quality today. Wilson was excellent and I prefer him to Cooper at the back. The next three games will be interesting and it would be nice to get Bronsky back. Too early to judge McGowan .
  9. The Binos v Elgin City

    Elgin have struggled all season in defence and unfortunately Gavin Price appears to be clueless in remedying the problem. Beattie is a liability and why Wilson was not playing today baffles me. Gavin has made some poor signings and I entirely agree with Thom and Gerry on the rest of the season. Gavin is a nice guy but his constant changes of formation in the hope of stumbling on a successful formula are worrying. Funnily enough last night I was also worrying about the Hibs game and how many goals we will lose. Normally attendance at that game would be certain but at present I doubt if I will attend. Failure to win at home this week at Albion must surely put pressure on the Board to look for someone new.
  10. Elgin vs Clyde

    Clyde are a completely different team from the last few visits to Boroughbriggs and should easily make the playoffs. They should have won today by a much bigger margin and if Goodwillie had his shooting boots on would have done so. Elgin are in a mess and sadly I do not think the manager has any clue how to solve their problems. The constant changes of formation suggest he is struggling. I was disappointed that John McGovern was back in midfield today as he does not have the legs for that role and we missed his passing from the back today. Beattie and co simply booted the ball long giving the midfield and forwards little chance. We also have a few players who are not up to the standard required and I fear we will continue to slide down the table . Hopefully our current points total will be enough to avoid being sucked into the bottom of the table battle.
  11. Trapdoorwatch 2016-17

    I fancy Montrose to beat Clyde,Berwick to draw with Edinburgh and Cowden to beat Elgin.Would still fancy Clyde to beat Buckie or more likely EK.Great last day of the season as all 5 games mean something.
  12. Clyde v Elgin

    Clyde should win this as Elgin have little physical presence in the absence of Sutherland and have created little going forward in the past two months.Hope I am wrong but have little confidence in the current Elgin side .It may be worth trying McHardy up front as the current formation is getting us nowhere.
  13. Elgin City thread

    Gunny has been a great servant to Elgin in the past but his recent performances and lack of effort do not fill me with any confidence.His holding up of the ball and movement are poor. I think he will go to the Highland league next season.
  14. Elgin City thread

    Why has it taken a month to diagnose this? I agree it is bad news for us and we may struggle to make the playoffs far less win them. Hope Shane will fully recover but with that type of injury it cannot be rushed. Come on Elgin do it for Shane
  15. Elgin V Forfar

    A draw was a fair result today.I agree that Forfar on todays evidence are not the team we saw earlier in the season. Elgin are really struggling to create any chances in the absence of Shane Sutherland.Can't believe it has taken the club a month to get a scan for his knee injury. We may struggle to hold onto a playoff place in his absence and can only hope Stirling and Montrose falter.I think Arbroath will win the league. Cowdenbeath look doomed.
