The Arbroath Thread

Recommended Posts

Alloa seem to have done well with a load of loan players. Opinions?
Loan players are an absolute must in the Championship, especially for part-time clubs.

Some of our best players in our time in the Championship were loanees. Off the top of my head we were lucky enough to have Chris Kane, Danny Rodgers, Jamie Lindsay, Joe Thomson, Paul McGinn, Daniel Harvey, Sam Wardrope and Stuart Findlay who were all excellent for us. There are probably a few more I've missed out.

Don't get me wrong we had a fair few shiters as well but most of the above played a massive part in us staying up for so long.

I think Donnelly will be tremendous in the Championship. He'll get more time on the ball.

Donnelly has already played at Championship level and was abysmal. And the idea that it somehow gets easier to play as a forward when taking the biggest step-up in level in all the Scottish leagues is just flat-out wrong.

Greg Stewart (who is basically Luke Donnelly lite) backs me up.

McGuigan from Stenny would be my target if he would come. Maybe Leighton MacIntosh back from Airdrie? I hear he’s been released. Always a good goal getter for us .

MacIntosh? Nooooo. Scores a few goals in League 1 but no control - the ball just bounces off him.

Sorry I think that was fake news anyway. It was the other MacIntosh (Sean) they released.

Leighton Mcintosh? Done a job but for a league up? Nahhhhh

Hope we can get Austin. No sure if McGuigan would be a goer don't see why he would sign a new 2 year deal with Stenny, there was a good chance they could be relegated when he signed too.

Heard Dick was throwing in McCord in a 'three for the price of two' deal.

Greig Spence free to a good home. Or a bad one.

I know it hasn't worked out for him but do you think he will be released?

Has there been a fall out with Dick and Ryan Wallace he looked easily Arbroath best striker the times I saw  him during the season. Had Arbroath offered him a new deal.

Heard rumbling that some in the club are worried about having Spence and Donnelly for next season as they are clearly not good enough for the step up.

So a free transfer might be on the cards.

Had a lot of potential the boy. Always fancied him at Pars and we almost signed him in 2016 but management pulled the plug at the last minute.

Big Luke has the ability but with that ability you need some commitment, heart and desire and he lacks that in abundance. Glimpses of magic in a game then hides the rest. I wasn't to saddened when he left in January.

Would happily take Spence

He was already contracted for next season. Consensus seems to be that Wallace didn’t want to potentially play a part time role in the championship and wanted to seek game time elsewhere, which is fair enough.
