Sons' sorrow


Recommended Posts

I'll be interested to see who this defender he's expecting to sign soon is. Overall, pretty happy with the new signings, especially Long seems to be a good bit of business.

Andy Considine.

I think he’s on the wind up!

Could’ve seen Cove being an option too.

Hopefully he's coming our way although I pessimistically don't really see it. Can't imagine him moving his young family to join Del at Killie or going to Dons rivals Dundee or Dundee United either after 18 years service. Saying that it's massive wage cut, albeit part time, to join his fellow ex-Dons Logan, Fyvie, Mitch, Reynolds at Balmoral.

Quite liked Brett Long at Peterhead and at East Fife before that so think that's a decent signing for the Sons. Certainly a significant upgrade from Sam.

Sonkur looks an absolute unit btw. Never seen him play.

Time for Rico Q to do the decent thing and follow Long back to the Rock.

Really? Rico was fine but he wasn't all that great. I think having had Boyle/Wylde/Muir this season may have tinted opinions and we maybe feel he was better than he actually was. Bit of a liability defensively. Looked decent going forward but I'm not sure he ever actually created goals with it.

I'd have given Muir a chance because although he is raw, he is young and could have been a fairly cheap option who I feel could have developed into a decent player, especially with the drop down. That being said, I'd hope we find someone more proven at this level or the league above as our first choice.

It's not the name iv heard. The one iv heard is a bit more familiar to sons fans.

Andy Graham?

My stab in the dark guess on this would be Sparky. He played under Aitken and Faz and Stranraer and I'm sure he's big pals with Frank McKeown.

Have he and Carsy patched things up after that incident at Dunfermline?

No, just no.  Nothing against Sparky but the season just ended absolutely convinced me that my long-held view on players returning to former clubs was spot-on.  Time for Managers and assistants to make new pals.

This. It very rarely works out well second time around. Especially when the players in question have hardly been setting the fire alight in recent years...

 

A la, Buchanan, Boyle, Geggan... no more, please.

Sparky is physically finished. He was a good player for us and I've got fond memories of him. I'm not a fan of bringing back former players as they usually fail to deliver, particularly several years down the line.
