still wanting two strikers and also players will be leaving 

 

Scott Allan also mentioned that he wanted to transition into part time football on the open goal podcast so hopefully all going well he will be here as long as DC is here

I wonder who could be potentially leaving? The only obvious ones would be Donnelly and Hilson although we know they’re rated by Dick Campbell. Can also see Paterson going out on loan again although I would like to keep him as he’s definitely got great potential. Don’t think there’s anyone else that I would be happy with leaving.

How are the current contracts?

Paterson 100 percent be on loan 

 

Then I am thinking LD or Hilson too cause he mentioned that there’ll be guys knowing they’re not going to play. And they 2 are probably the only ones 

 

One of the strikers will not be Adam Rooney he has signed for some made up team down south

Maybe Craigen out?  Much as I like him, we have better options both on the centre and on the wing now.  I think he's unlikely to feature as often, and I dont think he's vital on the pitch.  He seems to be a popular guy within the squad though.

I hope not. He’s a quality player who can fill a number of roles.

Lets hope Nicky Low is not leaving, as he is without doubt one of our key players.

Nah surely not? What would make you think that? A key player for us, no chance surely

Craigen gets a hard time from few of my pals but I really rate him and think he’s an important squad player. Does need to add more in terms of goals and final product I think the infuriating thing about him is he always seems to find himself in great positions and doesn’t do anything when he’s in them. Overall a steady solid player and no chance he will leave for me. 
 

If we sign 2 strikers like he’s said he hopes to do (for what is effectively now 1 position as Allan will play in the 10 you imagine) then we will have 

 

Striker

Striker

Hilson

LD

Shanks

 

Of that I think Hilson edge’s Donnelly as he plays out wide too. If Shanks goes out it will purely be to get games in a similar way to Paterson. I would guess that it’ll either be LD and Hilson or LD and Shanks

Would hope it’s not Craigen or Shanks (on loan). Craigen, like Gold, is super versatile and can fill a number of roles very well. Shanks needs game time but I fear that if we bring in two strikers then he may go out on loan, I hope not though.

Could Corfe maybe go out on loan until Christmas?

Don’t really think that’s fair on Corfe or will ever happen. The guys just moved from the United States to Arbroath. Putting him on as a sub for 20 minutes in one game before asking him to move to another team again is surely absolutely a non starter?

Still have hopes for Patterson, the other two, not so much

I like Paterson and think he’s got great potential. However he may be seen as a bit lightweight for the championship and he hardly set the heather alight on loan at Stirling last season. Perhaps put him out for another 6 months and see how he is after that. Otherwise I could see him leaving for good.

Its only a couple a weeks since we were all clamouring for him to at least be given a shot.  If he never gets any games, how will we know if he is good enough?

I couldn’t agree more. As I said, I really like him and would love to see him get more game time. However, I think it’s fairly obvious that the management don’t think he’s ready for the championship.

Having seen him a few times and watched his finish at Paisley I would like to see him get more chances off the bench.

I'd like Paterson to get a shot on the right now Allan is here to partner Low in midfield. Genuinely think Stewart starts on the right because of the frailty of the RCM position. 

Stewart starts on the right, because he is the best out there, also he understands that when Thomson goes forward, he stays, excellent defensively
