Really do hope the Club keep the AFC Megastore in the Abbeygate, just look at the crowds there this morning plus it is a central "hub" for all Red Lichtie supporters.

I would like that to stay open plus have the one at Gayfield open on match days plus someone is at Gayfield daily anyway if someone from that end of the town wanted to pop into Gayfield for a shirt etc..

Hopefully the owners of the Abbeygate and AFC can come to a small rent fee agreement as if not it is another empty shop in the town centre which is not good for anybody.

Thing is with club shops they’re only going to be properly busy 3 times a year, start of season, before Christmas and at the end of the season when things go on sale. But I do agree and hope the council or whoever lease that space out can help us out a bit. Abbeygate very quiet anyway the more people that go in there the better for the other shops

That last bit will be an issue. Reid has certainly made it clear it's done fantastic for generating money into the club and is going to be permanent for the foreseeable but the owners of the Abbeygate are complete c***s, once the initial lease of a year is up next March they'll definitely hike up the lease fee massively like they've done for many others that opened up in there.

Hope they see sense and keep it going, even possibly look at extending it.

Didn't deserve nothing, but could of won it,  awful miss from Hilson again,

Jacobs has once again shown he is not good enough for the level, 

Massive improvement needed and a 1000% a midfielder and striker's,

Don’t want to sound like a broken record but Donnelly and Hilson both had fantastic chances tonight….  guess what????? They missed!!!!  they even missed the target. Hilson scores then we come away with at least a point - put your head on it ffs!

However, uncharacteristically 3 of their goals were from our defensive f**k ups.

Desperately need a midfielder and striker.

Hilson and Donnelly did exactly what they always do.  But that said, Id have rather had Hilson up front than the empty space left by picking 2 midfielders.

Yet again Dick looks to Donkelly and Hilson to turn a game around....... and yet again they do next to f**k all positive.

Donkelly comes on and his first act is to stand still as the ball flaots towards him. Doesnt even jump. Doesnt try and hold the player back. Just stands. And the Dundee player wins the header. 6'7" of pure lanky streak of pish. Be more useful as a corner flag for how rigid his play is.

And what is the point in Hilson. He does not have the ability to compete at this or any level above League 2. Hopeless contribution and that sitter sums him up. Feet planted, not anticipating anything and throws his left leg at it, no composure to take his shot with precision, just havk at it. It was easier to just head the ball in.

We really need to get more bodies in. A striker or 2. And a holding midfielder.

Would be better off playing with 10 men than playing Hilson up front. More damage than good when he is on.

f**k it..9 men if we keep Donkelly off too.

Dick got the subs wrong today 

He got the starting line up wrong too.  When he made the subs, at first I thought it was Shanks on up front, but then I saw that familiar ironing board physique, and my heart sunk...

Also has Patterson just vanished in dicks eyes? Just some bad decisions made since the league started.

What was the point in signing Corfe, keeping Paterson, having Linn on the bench,  but choosing to play Hancock on the left...

Echo everyone's thoughts that Hilson and Donnelly are not good enough,  how many goals between them since they have signe? League goals, genuine question?

Never gonna repeat last season and staying in the league is the target but we need to improve massively, none of the signings have done enough for me and Hilson and Donnelly should of been moved on in summer

Usual. Play a player in League Cup. Player does well and think he might get more game time. League starts and he is lost on the bench behind his favourites.

Happened to Hester. Patterson will be the same. Will be loaned out by end of the month so his favourites can get more game time.

Only subs he needed to make were gold injured, McKenna poor game for once and Hancock for linn but them changes he made were atrocious and cost us. 
 

Jacobs looks absolutely stinking 

McKenna is poor as he is our only attacking threat and teams obviously know that so nullify him at every moment. It creates space for no one else in the team to exploit.

McKenna is miles away from being an issue for the team.
