  1. Euan D has done fine so far, I do get the impression he will get it tight from the support though for whatever reason, Agree another defender is required though, Rhys has said in latest DTV interview another 2 will be coming in..... Are we still technically defending our League unbeaten record at Peter head today,
  2. What is situation with subs this season , is it still 5 subs or are we back to a traditional 3 subs..... Could make a big difference especially with a thin squad.
  3. Jameson is a good addition quality loan as described by many on here, That's us now at 5 forwards out of a squad of 15, I would not be surprised( mentioned it a couple of weeks ago) if Murray makes a move for Smith, he clearly rates him having signed him before twice, if we even get a nominal fee that could be put to McCabes top target....I I would be surprised if Moffat ends up at Airdrie now , although a young centre back from Celtic seems to be a done deal apparently... We are still desperately short of depth in midfield, McCabe has said he needs 5 or 6 for the start of the League, he needs to produce the goods.... NOW
  4. Russell McLean he still listed at you guys, if so how's he not been picked up
  5. McCabe has stated prior to the Arbroath game we need 5 or 6 that would bring the squad up to the 19 mark excluding the young laddies, that should be workable and should be enough to cover for injuries etc....I Very interesting week, we have been waiting for this all summer
  6. Getting loanees is a,bit of Russian roulette, last season was good McInroy 3 months loan only, same with Brody and Afolabi 3 months loan.... I always think it is lazy recruitment and if we are going for 5 or 6 what does that tell us, but as I said in a n earlier post McCabe has gave this side a chance and to be blunt the players haven't taken it, to be honest we need a physical centre half just as much as a striker, Fordyce who I like struggles in the air in both boxes, Peter head will play basic percentage football next week, aggression, compact, and attack set pieces, we need to win this none of this mollycoddled pish of the FB page, we have Falkirk on the horizon after that...
  7. For me McCabe was spot on,he has gave the side every chance, he knows fine well that was the last game of preseason and things will crank up in ter the League.. The positions in danger IMO are both Devenneys and Gabby who is hopelessly inc onsistent. We currently have one loaner. McMaster from St Mirren, is 6 the most loanees a team can have , pretty desperate stuff if that the plan....
  8. Today's result was expected to be honest,you cannot go into proud clubs backyards without a loaded gun.... Interesting week ahead McCabe has always said and defended by many on here that the League is when the squad will be ready for.... Ok....are we confident of business getting done, 2 of the lads on trial at the NL Cup Josh Jack and Jack Garrad have found clubs they have signed for Forfarxand Cowdenbeath respectively.
  9. Couldn't make it myself was it a purvey with speakers etc, 6 pm seemed a tad early to only get some prawn sandwiches and a kerafe of red wine. The ties and the chiffon scarf were they worth the wait....I And more importantly I thought Airdrie passed St Mirre n off the park at times, well worth the win, special mention to Cole and Gunn came on and never looked overawed, but surely these lads have to be protected and learn the game playing there level,
  10. I hope for some inside info on here later, coming from the invite only Club 1924 evening tonight, hopefully it isn't too hot for the prawn sandwiches and wine....... enjoy watching the game from the hospitality boxes ....... onto the serious stuff and yes it is getting serious now, Nothing to report since the Edinburgh game signings wise, Rhys himself stated after the Edinburgh game significance happening within the week, still nothing, if players don't want to sign move on ffs... excuses on here are wearing thin
  11. To be fair all the "shite" players have been snapped now anyway, we have waited too long for them as well ffs...
  12. The club had promised McCabe a support structure ? Has that happened, does McCabe want it...... Do we get enough from Prunty and Hutton...are they the support structure... Does anybody know....
  13. I wonder if his post will be screenshotted on Facebook If the answer to the question is LEMMINGS then what is the question.......
  14. Heard the same and also in for a 17 year old centre half from Celtic... to be fair it is McCabes fault, if he is determined o sign a quality of player that the club cannot back up wage wise, then he has to swallow his pride and get other less talented players who are willing to accept the wage offered, do we think Craig Bryson signed for Stenny because he likes the views of the of ochilhills or do we think Kirk Broadfoot has a fetish for wearing parkas in the summer while he runs out for a non entity club at Broadwood..
  15. Heard rumours, would think this would be an end of window loan at best, Moffat is currently on celtics pre season tour and was on the bench yesterday, doubt he is on mccabes mystery man imminent list though
  16. Football is all about opinions, I think McCabe is different class at the back, not as effective when in midfield, Agree about an o!d school centre half , Fordyce barely won a clear defensive header and know where near the ball at attacking corner kicks, we struggled all last season and this season seems the same, the lad Leon Jones who is hanging around seemed decent enough against the Colts, expect him to sign but I don't see him being an upgrade or the level of McCabe or Fordyce or even Watson, which contradicts his signing policy (if Jones signs...) Another possible controversial comment should Fordyce remain as Captain, Rhys is the Manager, Fordyce Assistant Manager / Captain, would it not make more sense if Watson or Cammy B was made skipper which would lead to other players having leadership and more responsibility as the skipper, at the moment it seems a bit of a closed shop, which cannot be a good thing moving forward .....
  17. Question for you Falkirk fans...... Are Falkirk now back ... See you c***s at he Excelsior in 3 weeks..
  18. The way McCabe sets his team up 3 5 2 was the system .Murray wanted to play for 2 seasons but couldn't get the personnel, Cammy B and Euan Dev I like but can they defend, they play very high, we need experienced midfielders in this system, promising against an experamental Edinburgh all there main men were on the bench apparently, Edinburgh are tipped to be cannon fodder in this league, Fontaine and Keiran McD strolled that tonight, shame we never had the vision to be in for them, looking around the stand I only noticed Leon Jones with the non playing staff,nobody else, pressure will increase on Rhys now just over a fortnight to Peter head league kickoff, signings must come in now and get them bedded in, are we convinced he can get his signings over the line...... Jury's out
  19. Probably just covering their back with the all the quitongo brothers pish last season, in saying that has the tribunal finished yet, not heard anything either way, would we or should we hear the outcome though ...
  20. The new third kit is another really good effort by umbro, I have a funny feeling the AWAY will be either red with a white dianond, or red with a black diamond probably find out just before our first league game..... Interesting that Football Nation have stated that the official temporary Athletico top will not be on general sale, I know a few lads that have all the strips going back donkeys and are really down that this possibly best ever top won't be available.. Don't panic. The Athletico top is an off the shelf umbro design and is available through the Football Nation website the design is Umbro Ramone and costs 18.75 a top , obviously there will be no badge or sponsors on it, it is basically last season's third kit in a different colour.... I hope this helps for anybody trying to keep their collection going, looking forward to seeing it at Cowdenbeath......
  21. Athletico Airdrie not got a problem with the temporary strip actually think it will be a cracker and Could well be a best seller if available???
  22. I would be more concerned of a forfeit if we cannot get 2 UEFA B qualified coaches for the Technical area this is Part of the SFA Club Licensing guidelines and the reason the Willie Aitchison situation came about, this is nothing new and a very basic requirement, as far as I am aware we have no UEFA B qualified coaches at the club....... Could this be put down as a developing situation...... If I am wrong feel free to shoot me down...
