I would like to have kept him but at the same time I'm not too fussed that he's away, certainly not irreplaceable!!!
Forfar are guaranteed to get a penalty against us next season now!!!

Sparky away to Forfar.

Just shows you the game is about opinions- on last years performances not a loss- maybe played in the wrong position- certainly never a LB! Wish him well....

I have heard a rumour of the red and white striped kit changing to all white with red trim, other two staying the same apart from sponsorship.

I herd that aswell we just have to see the logo layouts and who it is in June’s draw in terms of sponsorships.

back to talking about the squads and playing staff with Sparky saying his goodbyes via Twitter I think we will need a left sided or left back in pronto, yes we all know Pat can play LB aswell as midfield  that’s very good but I feel we need to replace those leaving  the club in positions needing upgrading from the previous season to be successful and aswell Meggat I’m hearing is going to the juniors so as the centre backs one or two there and left back I would like to see brought in aswell as one more forward if it’s duggan then good, another to welcome home but in terms we are nearly there. Hopefully we get Janny signed up for cover at least until we get a partner for Dunlop at Cb. Still early days and all these new incomings and early business is great; keep them coming. Great to see the club have two young upcoming goalies now who’ll fight for that position if injuries happen great stuff :thumsup2

Think defence is where most of our focus for the pre season will be now

I actually think LB's Slattery's best position and I'd be happy to go into the season with him as first choice there.

Clearly the defence is needing a few more good additions though. GKs, midfield and strikers are probably more or less done. really hopeful that Watson will re-sign the priority has got to be a quality centre half and 2 or 3 more defenders for competition / cover.

2 year deal for Docherty at Forfaremoji848.pngemoji23.pngemoji23.png

Hope they don't let him take any penalties. My lasting memory of him.

I have got a feeling  it will be difficult to replace the positive influence that Docherty has had on our squad, and I think that is probably why EF wanted to keep him (although I doubt if we were willing to match the 2 year deal offered to him by Forfar).

I will always be grateful to him for winning the ball in the dying minutes against Raith and having the courage to put the ball in for Agnew to layoff to Dunsmore.   :thumsup2  A lot of players in that position would have played it safe and settled for the draw.

Oh and if he scores a penalty against us next season some of our supporters will go into meltdown.

I seen duggan in dumfries on saturday (queens end of course) and looked a much better player than he was with us. More than happy if he came back.

So Duggan, Higgins, Murdoch and Burns we're all interested in. Would take them all, not a big fan of Higgins but I'm probably being too harsh given it wasn't just him underperforming the latter half of the season. 

If we sign those lot, I make it probably one centre half and a right back (Watson?), and Darren might be happy with the squad. I'd prefer another winger personally but can't have it all!

Another winger is just getting greedy
