(If there is any truth in it) do you have any idea of who and what the catalyst is for this?

Seems very strange as squad strength and togetherness seemed to be huge parts of our success.

D.C. said it himself in the paper a week or two back. There’ll be outgoings because players know they won’t be playing as much as they’d like to be 

 

All the guys are close and good lads, most of them on holiday together over the summer and are great mates off the park if they want to leave it’ll be for football reasons

Completely understand that players want game time and thus might want to leave to get it. However Monkfish seems to be hinting at something more deep rooted than a small number of players wanting to be on the pitch more often.

I’m sure there are a few guys at the club that are very well aware that they will be used sparingly but are happy to be part of such a good team and play as and when they’re required. Take them out of the equation and it sounds like this could be more established players. Hope not obviously.

I think I know exactly what Monkfish is on about. Also imagine players will be frustrated at the exact same things the fans are frustrated about. Players playing out of position and some of the team selections the main ones.
 

They can’t be enjoying their football right now either and this is where DC has to do his job. Biggest challenge he’s had so far at Arbroath, got all the tools in place and backing that he needs so will need to just sit back and see what unfolds

Obviously I was not sorry to see Donnelly move on. He showed over the past couple of seasons that he couldn't cut it in the Championship and was a waste of a wage. Should really have been moved on sooner.

But good luck to him with whatever club signs him up and maybe he will do well at a club in the west or central belt.

A lot of rumours and if’s/buts and maybes when the only thing the club have confirmed is donnelly leaving so lets just see what happens. One thing that is certain is we need some new faces in if we’re going to at least stay up and im sure dc & pink r working hard on that as we speak.

Yeah I noticed some wild comments on social media where people have clearly just not watched the update videos Paul Reid has been doing. Supporters of football clubs, and I suppose people in general, can be extremely annoying
