Hopefully a creative attacking player. Probs be paton though.

Yeah can't say I'm overly excited by this signing.  His experience is an asset but we know his limitations from his first spell and I can't imagine he's improved any since then.

My prediction is he will slink off to the seaside league in January after an injury hit spell that sees him play less than 10 games.

After seeing our bench on Saturday it’s good to have some experience added. Can play on both sides and we need wingers.

13:09 onwards...

Looked completely finished at League 1 level last season. His attitude was also incredibly suspect however so he might have something to offer you that he couldn’t be bothered to show us.

I've seen many a player sign for Dumbarton over the years, followed by a plethora if comments about how shite they are, only for them to turn out to be good players for us, so I'm loathed to write this but I will anyway...

Michael Paton was seriously awful with us. He was unfit, slow and looked liked he just couldn't be arsed at all. I was convinced he'd end up in the Lowland League or at one of those oddball, high wage paying, Darvel type junior clubs after leaving us but alas he's found himself a deal at a bigger, full-time club in a higher division.

After hearing what Queens and Dunfermline fans had to say about him I had really high hopes for him. The general concesus was that he wasn't the quickest but was a solid grafter who possessed a bit of quality, particularly when it came to his final ball. Unfortunately I don't think he had a single good game for us, despite having plenty of chances. He shirked out of any 50/50 he found himself involved in and generally spent his time with us completely avoiding the ball. When he did end up with the ball he just seemed devoid of any sort of confidence or basic, general ability to do anything with it.

Despite all of the above I do hope he finds his feet again with Queens. I doubt he was deliberately god awful for Dumbarton and perhaps the full-time training will mean he's a bit sharper. He may well turn out to be decent backup I suppose but it's hard for me to judge what he will actually bring to your team after his time with us.

I must admit, despite Andy Stirling not setting the heather alight in Dumfries, this seems like a monumental downgrade for a player who looked completely finished at SPFL level last season.

As an ex-Doonhamer whose folks still live in the Toon, I keep a close eye on what’s going on at Queens and watch when I’m down.

 

I’d be questioning why oh why you are wasting a wage on Paton again. That is a horrendous signing. Is AJ just going for names he knows from years ago ? FFS.

 

Mind you if a top tier club sees something in Dykes anything is possible I guess.

The cheap option aka the norm for our club. 

We’ll miss Dykes this season...
