Need to bin the diamond formation pronto too,

Back to 4-4-2, 

Get Linn on the wing and Mckenna supporting Hilson upfront, 

A fit Scott Stewart on the right hopefully soon and 2 centre midfielders,

Play people in there proper positions would maybe help too, 

Diamond would work with 2 strikers.

Doesn't work by playing no strikers.

So Dicks interview.

Mentions numerous times we are not creating enough in front of goal.

Well if you only have 1 or 0 wingers, no playmaker in the midfield and play with no actual striker of course you are not going to create anything.

The fact he complains its been like that for 5 games that tells a lot. Maybe its your tactics and team selection that has led to a bereft of chances.

Mentions he started McKenna but unsure if he was fit. Surely him and the player would know that beforehand. Why not use him as a sub for the last 30 mins. Ease him back into the team?

Then say Hilson has been good but not creative enough in front of goal so thats why he was dropped.

But we should all should just get a grip eh!

Don't make many posts- but last night was a shocker. 1 shot on goal with the wind behind us, and when will we ever play someone on the right wing (I mean an actual winger, not your modern wing back stuff). Open up the play let's give opposition left backs something to do.

Enough said.

Maybe we are struggling in front of goal Dick because you’ve signed players who cannot play in the Scottish Leagues, a YouTuber and a young lad from the Highland League to supplement Bobby Linn and Dale Hilson. Oh and because you also take off Bobby Linn after an hour, the one genuine creative spark who can score a goal from nothing that we have in the entire squad. Maybe, just maybe that’s why

 

ETA - and everyone could’ve told you that months ago

Have to say, Gayfield looks absolutely fantastic with the work that's been done.  Quite, jealous.

Nearly 1700 there too on a cold weeknight when we’d won 1 in 10 and have scored 2 league goals at Gayfield. Everything’s fucking great, except the football…..

Heard he’s signed at a team down south until January 

 

Another unbelievable signing from DC… 

I was just reading the courier article earlier and Dick said it was paperwork. 
 

Madness if he’s away

This is more like the Arbroath FC I’ve been used to all these years. All this great football and superb feel good stuff just wasn’t normal.

A return to shit football and shambolic off-field goings on feels just like putting on a nice old comfy pair o’ baffies.

Anyone for a gin night?

😆☹️😉

Not away I heard he’s still currently signed at that team until January, it’s an amateur team but he cannot sign for us until January cause he’s registered with them

If that's the case, doesn't sound like its our fault.  Don't know if this counts as one of Nouble's mates or not though, Lichteeeeee hasn't provided a list yet.

I would've thought making sure somebody wasn't signed to another club before we announced them would be in the clubs jurisdiction.

Mate the article where Dick said he was using Nouble to try find players from down south has been posted in here several times.
 

What’s with all the sarcastic comments about it?
