This seems reminiscent of that episode of Lost where you had to enter 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 into a computer every so often or the world would end.

I’d be happy if we announced two new signings this week and also confirmed that Carswell was returning..

The article in The Reporter said that two of last year's squad were expected to sign this week. Carswell and Brennan? Ally Roy is signing for Airdrieonians, so they'll have the delights of rangeman this season.

Calum Gallagher has also signed for Airdrieonians.

Happy with signing him, always looked one of your better players against us last season

Patience wearing thin now seeing more good players signing for teams around us. I know we took ages to sort Duffy but f**k sake get a shift on.

Ally Roy and Callum Gallagher any good?

Depends on if you are related to rangerman or if you have Dom Thomas.

Gallagher is a hard working player who will score if chances are made for him. If you play him as a winger you'll be disappointed...he can't beat his man

As for ally Roy.....tbh..i can't really remember him that well...he is probably most remembered for a guy on here called rangeman who may or may not be related to him

I mean we knew it was happening anyway, but losing Gallagher on top of the other guys we've lost really is a blow.

If we get in someone like Berba then that'll soften it, but otherwise I'm now creeping towards being worried...

As much as Duffy had confirmed Gallagher was offski I'm still disappointed to see him go, particularly to a League 1 rival. I'm looking at Duffy to convince these guys to stay with us and he clearly hasn't managed that. I think it's harsh to say Gallagher was only any good due to Dom Thomas, his goals to starts ratio was fairly good, he worked hard and had an eye for goal, the type of guy who would be a nuisance to defend against. Was he naturally gifted? absolutely not, but we were far better with him in the team than without.

If we're being brutally honest, Duffy's initial signings, on paper, don't look very good. He now has a huge job on his hands trying to replace last year's good eggs and it's going to take far, far more than plucking randoms from the juniors or signing guys from the exit trials. There's still a long way to go in the window but we need some decent signings fairly soonish if we want to shift season tickets. No amount of blind positivity from the Facebook masses will change the fact that business so far has been poor.

I know the argument of 'we signed well known players last season and look how that panned out' will be used but well known players weren't our issue, it was the fact those well known players were part of an imbalanced, injury ravaged squad that was the issue.

We need some quality in the ranks and the sooner that happens the better.

I still think we are being a bit slow. Maybe it's not by lack of trying behind the scenes but other teams in the league seem a long way ahead of us in terms of squad building. Airdrie seem to be assembling a decent squad, Raith and Falkirk will fancy their chances. The other squads seem to be coming together and we have signed 5? Junior/lowland league players alongside the lesser spotted Rory Loy. Dont think even the most positive Facebook weirdo can argue that things are looking good. I'm happy to give Jim the benefit if the doubt just now but I cant help but feel a bit worried. If we are crippled and stumped due to the budget then so be it, just come out and tell us.
