Don’t know if any of you guys have seen it on twitter but a few sources saying Kevin O’Hara is close to a move to Lincoln City. 

Bit of a groaner, but I didn't realise that Lincoln are back up in the third tier down south. Can't really argue with that.

Good luck to him. Hope he scores a hatful.

looks like it (not signed yet) has split their Fans and upset some of them, poor dears, 

If they play him right they will have a good player more than good enough for them , but if the fans get on his back (and they most likely will 

they may not get the best of him .

I heard he's a cracking winger. Put him on the sidelines where he can do the real damage.

Nicky Jamieson is heading to Alloa from QP. Good centre-half, spotted by Grant Jnr.

Posted a bit about that on Dunfermline thread already but a good signing. I'd far rather O'Hara than McManus, better all round player.

Not sure I agree with that, Waspie. I think McManus has more to his game and is more consistent. He doesn't have the pace and explosive ability of O'Hara though. I actually think they will complement each other and may do very well as a pair.

Hopefully he does us a turn. 

It was hard to believe the Fawkirk fans who didn't rate him when he came here looking back now , if used properly he will be good for you .

I've never been particularly fond of McManus I'd have to admit and that could be clouding my judgement. However, if he had been playing up front for Alloa last season I don't think he would have brought as much to the team as O'Hara did. Not convinced he'd have scored as many goals in our team either. More consistent fair enough, he has had a few decent seasons compared to O'Hara's one excellent 3/4 of a season. But if O'Hara can maintain that form then he brings pace, strength, goals, and a ferocious workrate. I don't think McManus has as many attributes. Agree that they might do well together.

Dunfermline, by Christ. Bit of a scunner that he's ended up at one of our relegation rivals.

Still, full-time football and that. Hope he does well, but mysteriously can't find his shooting boots at the Recs  :whistle

I saw McManus a few times for Falkirk last season and he was excellent. We'll see how they do at Dunfermline - both seem to be confidence players, so whoever gets among the goals early may go on to have the better season.

Of course Kevin is going there with the added weight of the Dean Shields incident on his shoulders. I hope he wins the fans over quickly.

Good luck to both of them as ex-Wasps.

O'Hara had flattered to deceive at Falkirk much of the time. He burst into the side at 17yo IIRC and looked like a real prospect with that pace he has, but he couldn't get among the goals - I know, hard to believe given his record at Alloa and the variety of goals he scored for us.

Falkirk have been a bit of a mess, obviously, for the last few years and I expect that didn't help Kevin. Not sure they played him in his best position, a issue which Peter Grant certainly got right at Alloa. I think Peter has to take a lot of credit for the was Kevin performed in the black and gold. I've heard he's a really nice lad (my daughter-in-law taught him at high school).

Alloa have won a watch if jamieson has signed for them. Got all the attributes to be a top player at this level, great in the air, good pace and his distribution is outstanding but doesn’t take risks on the ball either. 

Was genuinely gutted that he was let go as myself and a few other QP fans thought he was player of the season. There were suggestions that work commitments may have resulted in him not being able to take up full time at QP but also others saying he was just let go. 
 

Good luck to him if it’s true

Been meaning to ask this for a while; for years now, there's been a wee white van that occasionally drives around Alloa on Saturdays, absolutely covered in 'Freemen on the Land' type slogans that they've presumably paid money to have decaled, and broadcasting paranoid, incoherent ramblings on loudspeaker, like politicians used to do on election days. He's out again today, seems to have added a few anti-Black Lives Matter slogans, and is filling the town with recordings of sheep bleating.

Does anyone know who/what this is all about? I'm...err...'interested' in his ideas and would like to subscribe to his newsletter. Mainly so I know when he's planning on going on a rampage so I can be out of town.
