He's no great loss to us. Scored a good deflected goal against Spartans and generally looked innefectual.

He does have a little bit of skill and pace but has no idea how to use them. Good luck to the guy though. He helped us out pre season and similarly we got him fit so he could sign that lucrative deal with erm Brechin.

You’re telling me you wouldn’t pick Brechin over Sunderland or Barnsley?

Heard Brechin's lovely at this time of year 🤣

Are you playing a youth in goal tomorrow?! It's gonna be a hard fought game as we aren't exactly a free scoring team with only Andrew Nelson posing a genuine striker's threat. I suspect we'll play 3-5-2 tomorrow and try and dominate possession. Bit tin pot if the Witch is on holiday - Was looking forward to seeing him. Vaughan injured again?

Munro is a young keeper but I’ve seen him play for us in pre season and once previously for Ross County and he’s looked decent, tipped for a big future. Think he is still a teenager. Couldn’t give a f**k if it’s “tin pot” really, he’s a part time player with a job at a collage and clearly finding a time for a holiday with both his job commitments is no easy feat, ‘Geordie’ will be fine covering for a couple of games.

 

Looked at your squad there and you do appear to be stronger at the back but as you say light on options in attack. We look strongest in midfield, I’d say, could be a decent wee battle for possession there. Surprised Cammy Kerr is still slumming it out with you though, thought he’d have got a move by now, was certainly talked up for a big move a wee while ago.

Vaughan did his other ACL a week after scoring a hat trick against the Pars up on Brechin's tattie field in January. The same game saw Nisbet return from an injury.

We've got Ross Munro on loan from Ross County who played in goals during their challenge cup run last season. We won't have a sub keeper.

Still, we've had to cut our cloth appropriately over the last few years as our board don't want to default into administration, which would be peak tinpot material.

Wonder if Eric will make a guest appearance in the Directors Box today and will he be warmly welcomed back by one and all ?

Thought they would have taken a new picture. Not the old one with someone no longer employed in it. Typical Rovers. :oops

Not a fault. Just a comment as it would have been nice to see the redecoration. Sorry if it came across negatively.

For deciding to appoint Locke, sending Vaughan to Dumbarton instead of Brechin because they offered more money for the loan deal, and selling David Bates to Rangers for no money whatsoever, I’d be quite happy if he was verbally abused for the entire 90 minutes.

He's off the pace of the game by a long way. He'll adapt, I'm sure, it's football in a new country and at a totally different level than he's used to, but right now he's expecting much more time than he's getting.

Also, we're fifteen minutes into the season and heads are gone all over the shop. John McGlynn's, chiefly.
