I was a bit taken aback by that too. I can't be far off having seen every senior minute that Arnott has played, and while he's been broadly fine, with the odd good moments, I've not seen anything to suggest he's a legitimate squad option in the Championship at this point, let alone "good enough to start". 

We're already at the point where we'll be leaving a good, senior central midfielder on the bench, and we've still got Matthews to come back. 

If we'd just won two games on the bounce as opposed to losing two, nobody would be complaining about this. 

Couldn’t agree more with what’s been said above. I’d also add the highland league is probably a far higher standard than some people are giving it credit for. It’ll certainly aid his development.

I wonder if Tom Morgan was waiting wearing a peaked cap, white gloves and holding a sign saying “Frederiksen”

It was John Sim with a sign reading "Marquee".

If we are signing someone then it will be mentioned today in his interview as the previous few have been 

Or the pre match will be out a bit later to have the announcement first (if it happens)

We've waited this long for a striker what's another week, month, 6 months. Maybe we are waiting until we are adrift at the bottom before using the money apparently available to fill gaps in the squad. Or it may be the case the clubs skint and there is no money.

I think Murray has been quite clear he wants to bring in the right player, and from those he's looked at, very few of them have fit the bill. But budget, cost of living etc.... will be having a massive impact too.  i heard the Stenhousemuir chairman saying their clubs electricity is going to increase by approx 20k over the next year - and thats a part time club. 

I imagine the next player we bring it will be the last we can afford on the current budget, so Murray will want, and need, to get it right!

You seem to be in the know about finances I thought?

The skint and no money patter cause we’ve signed no one straight away 🙄

We’ve been told that for over 30 years

A lot of people get told a lot of things doesn’t mean there true and let’s be real if there was “NO” money how come we signed Mcbride and the rest of the players brought in, like I could come on here and say I’ve been told Murray is also looking at a defender who can play across the back 4 doesn’t mean it’s going to happen

Information can always be given about a manner of issues, however you look at the person telling you there association to the club any other relevant knowledge and take it from there. I have no reason to disbelieve what I've been told but won't disclose who it came from. 

Look though at the players released and replacements. Bene, Berra Tumilty,  Poplatnik even Zanatta all replaced with cheaper options or kids.

You can't go about berating Murray for lack of signings if you're believing your source that we have no money. If your source is correct then questions would need to be raised with Murray/Sim telling fibs in their interviews. When you see the fact that many other clubs are in the same boat regarding bringing in players I'd suspect it's not down to lack of money but lack of options out there.
