We've had young keeper Andrew Wilson on loan for a few months, and he has been in good form. He had an excellent game on Saturday with a couple of superb saves as we pulled off a surprise 1-0 win over Clydebank in the Scottish Junior Cup.

we like him here , some of us prefer him to our sub goalie  . good to hear he is doing well .

Another couple of injuries yesterday during a fantastic performance and result. Does anyone know the latest on the injury front? Liam Dick has been out for a while and I assume parry will be out most of the season. Brown looked like he had a sore one and Malcolm was struggling late on (Maybe just cramp). Good time for a couple of weeks break.

There isn't a break?

 

ETA: ignore me. Not sure why Alloa don't have a game. Maybe a team with a few international call ups?

Nice to see the thread back on page 1 , yesterday was an unexpected win, if we can keep in touch till january and get the right  players in we can do well .

hopefully the injury list improves too along with some consistency .

Anyone here know what the deal is with Liam Dick ?
Both Liam Dick and Heatherington should be back for Elgin .Adam Brown felt a twinge on sat vs Dunfermline but should be OK . long term Neil Parry still 4/5 months yet

Morton ruined him. He was absolutely outstanding in a rank rotten Alloa team when they signed him. Pretty much man of the match most weeks and scoring spectacular goals for fun from central midfield. Jim McInally decided not to play him there and he's never looked anywhere near as good since.

My opinion after Saturday's game .... i know it is pretty evident but we desperately need a winger to give a bit of pace and width and a true no9 (easier said than done i know) typified in the last minute. Thomson had the ball at the edge of the box, it opened up and nothing between him and the goals. What does he do, tries to pass it to someone in the box when he should have had a shot at goal. We could have nicked a draw after defending stoutly throughout.
I also thought the formation didn't work in the first half, team looked much better and balanced in the second half when they changed it around.

For me Grants tenure will be judged on who he brings in in january , as i have said before if he thinks we are good enough then his judgement will be seriously questioned  .

Last year after sixteen league games we had twelve points. This year we have two points more. Our goal difference is one worse.

Yes, we need to strengthen, but let's keep things in perspective.

It’s just default position for some people to slate any new manager.

Its the same people who gave Goodwin pelters for weeks on end telling him to gtf now wish he was still here

Jamie played some good games for us, and scored some cracking goals. Wasn't as good as you make out though. Didn't seem to do very much after he left us.

Indeed. Shame we didn't hold on until half-time on Saturday as that would have made a point at least more likely, but losing 2-1 at Tannadice is hardly a disaster. 

We are clearly too short of players and have been lucky thus far not to have suffered a string of injuries as we simply couldn't deal with it. But given when the manager came in, coupled with the fact that he didn't know the team or the division, then it is understandable that he didn't wade in and make a pile of signings before the window closed without being clear on what he had and what he needed. And it is encouraging that the signings that he did make have done well. I do have a slight concern about his comments a while back along the lines of not wanting to bring in players as the current squad work so hard and deserve to play, but hopefully he has seen enough now to know we need to strengthen. 

One other thing, I don't think we are making the most of Liam Buchanan. Still a very effective and clever player who is so good at linking things up and bringing others into play. Was terrific at Inverness and scored, and was then dropped. Fair enough might not be a starter every week, but for me he has been underused (and based on games I've seen has deserved to play more), and particularly hard to understand when we are short on numbers. 

Overall doing OK though and hanging in. Crucial to try and grab a few more points this month then hopefully get some decent loans in to boost our options.

Another disappointing display and result. We couldn't string two passes together and never really put pressure on Ayr when we had the wind at our back.
The January window is gonna be make or break for us.
My opinion, the team look tired and I think there are players that need a rest, but due to the lack of numbers in the squad, are playing either not fully fit or out of form.
Hopefully ohara's injury isn't too bad, cracking goal today.
