There’s no point going overboard with Dowds interview. Maybe he doesn’t look the happiest but that’s fair enough, he was shafted by the previous management regime for Wilson and Ompreon.
 

He scored a hat-trick today, enjoy it! As long as he performs for the rest of the season, who cares?

If he goes on a pre-contract then you can thank Sheerin for pissing him off. If he goes this month then we get money for him

Today confirmed he won't be going anywhere till the summer where I would expect him to have a number of offers from full time clubs. He won't be going back to Arbroath any time soon and giving up full time football.  Hopefully between now and then he'll score the goals to get us in the playoffs. Frankly he can look pig sick in every interview if he does the business on the park.

I really think plucky Arbroath's fans need to let go.

Dowds cant lose. He's already made a name for himself in the Championship & now has half a season, at a league below his level, to further cement that reputation. He'll see the season out as a stand-out L1 player or move (to bigger than Arbroath) during this window

Coming back, he is surely not so daft as to not recognise the fact that of the Board members and management team, the only faces he would recognise are Ronnie Bateman and Gordon Wright.

He wasn’t wronged by the club, he was wronged by people at the club, and not a single one of them are part of the new set up.

More importantly, where any club sits in any given league is not a permanent state of being. Arbroath have lost their front pairing, and surprise surprise, they draw a blank, and get beat by Ayr. They will slide this season, and they will slide next season too.

If Dowds is genuinely pissed off, he needs to understand what he is pissed off with. If he decides it’s a club crest, then he is making a big mistake.

Get Dowds in the bin. Arbroath can have him. He might have been treated poorly by previous custodians but that attitude is stinking. 

Congratulations, you’ve won wind up of the day.

Rennie clearly sees him in his plans for this season.
Frankly I couldn’t see anything in that Dowds interview that suggested he definitely didn’t want to be here either….

I agree. I think he's just got a serious demeanor, I don't ever remember him being gushing or particularly forthcoming in any interviews previously. Folk looking too much into things I think.

Crowd wanking. Lording it up over the club sitting top of the Championship at the moment. Rattling six past utter seaside league diddies.

Good to see this thread back to normal. Nature is healing.

Your player scores a hat trick and getting hounded on here. 

Fans calling him dugshite.

Not just the old bod that need  to look in the mirror.

Just enjoy your win today. Probably won’t happen very often the next few seasons.

Let's not show Arbroath any disrespect BTW folks. They've given us back an improved player and their fans have wished him well.

They also seem like a decent bunch, despite having probably their best season in who knows how long (maybe ever) they're not gloating or trying to act the Billy big baws!

Aye right see post above.

Just watched his interviews and I heard a lot of “we” and “us” which says to me he is here to be part of the team….definitely wants to play with a Partner so hopefully 2 up top and the goals will keep coming! COYB
