The Arbroath Thread


Recommended Posts

We don't have our own thread so thought I'd make one. Noticed Michael Wallace is in the team photo so maybe he will eventually get a chance?and Chris Scott seems to have left, not in photo and his mum commented something saying he'll miss someone.

I was just going to point out that, although I'm obviously absolutely delighted with our start to the season, how many minutes have our own youngsters played in competitive fixtures this season? Off the top of my head, I don't think Connor Birse, Keiran McWalter or Chris Scott have had a single minute of competitive football so far? Or did Keiran come on for a few minutes against Alloa in the cup? :unsure:

Either way - a few good results doesn't do anything to change my disappointment at firstly releasing a group of youth players who were doing extremely well at that level (and at least two of them have ended up at teams that're in better leagues than ourselves) and secondly not giving the three from that team that we do decide to keep any chance at all of actually playing for our first team this season. We may not be regretting it now while we have, and can afford, a good sized squad with good players filling it, but it is just a matter of time before this whole thing properly comes back to bite us on the arse in my opinion.....

I was really disappointed at letting Scott Adams go, the boy had pace skills and a great shot on him, anyone who watched under19s last season will agree. Connor Birse looked like he had lost a yard of pace in pre season and we definetely held on the the wrong player

This is a team that are still bedding in and getting to know each other (including management). Its always difficult to change a winning team. The guys on the fringe will come in...no doubt. But from a management point of view this is exactly what you want.

I'm sure I read somewhere, all the players are desperate to play. The ones that have got the shirt will know this and hopefully try harder to keep it!

Moore has already got the team spirit going and will use some of the characters (he speaks of) and more experience players to keep it going.

What the players need to understand, is they have now become the early targets in this league and most of the teams they'll play will raise their game against us.

Allan Moore has won manager of the month for League 2 for August. With a perfect start and one of the few teams left in the UK with a 100% record it would have been a crime if he hadn't.

According to the courier we are also in talks to sign attacking midfielder Dylan Carrerio on loan from Dundee. 19 and former Queen's Park Rangers player.

Where would he play??

I saw carreiro for Dundee u-20s and he looked class. Think he's Canada's u-20s captain as well. Good passer and runner and didn't shy out of a tackle either. Imagine he would replace Stewart in midfield, would be harsh though, unless we play 1 up top and have Stewart carreiro and hunter as a midfield 3.
