Linked with ex Utd player Morgaro Gomes, cant see it but would be an interesting signing, could be another Colin Samuel who come in on high wages no doubt but didn’t live up to hype 


Don't think it's the same, only 33 I think and he's not a goal scorer or anything just a very good player on the ball. Think it could be very decent if it come off.

I think Colin Samuel was only 29 when he signed for us.


Wow. He's only 37 now, hard paper round

Still the Samuel that turned up to us was a fair bit overweight and not at it. Still had that burst of speed and bit of quality though which made him useful. There was a midweek game against Forfar at Gayfield where he looked like Usain Bolt for one of his goals

Gomis a very fit player, tidy on ball, only recently let go by United. Would be interesting anyway. I wonder if Fyvie is possibly an option there was rumours of him going to Cove..

Rumour is he is being offered in excess of £500 p/w to play for Cove. Plus both knees are on there way out.

I  mind the goal you are referring to mate, My brother and me always laugh about that goal as we didn’t think he had it in him anymore and all of a sudden he was off and fast as hell, it was like somebody had dangled a KFC bucket in front of him and he was off lmfao.

Be very wary of a guy who is dropping down to part-time football, particularly if he has injury issues and his game was based around buzzing about the pitch breaking up play.

I have appealed on ex-Red Lichtie Andy Cargill's behalf before and i am appealing on his behalf again but does anybody have footage or knows where to get a copy of his goal from the halfway line when he lobbed Andy Goram at Palmerston Park in the Queen of the South v Arbroath FC game in the early 2000's? He is desperate to prove he done this to his mates who do not believe him.

The former chairman JC has it on DVD. He is very happy to pass it on to Andy. Contact me or JC direct.

I think we absolutely need more in the middle of the park but I don’t think Gomis is the answer.

Gomis was a great servant for United during his first spell with the club, but he really struggled last season and was very slow - he has good ball control and distribution but now lacks speed.

Could maybe be a decent squad player - but would need to up his game to get into Arbroath's starting 11.

Gomis keeps himself really fit. Doesn't drink and takes his exercise very seriously (which is a sad state that it's a redeeming feature for a professional but I'm sure you see what I'm getting at). He's trying to get in with the coaching side of things at Hearts right now and tbf to him, I think he's been really unlucky the last year or two. He's tried to maximise his earning and ended up getting shafted and having to chase clubs up for money etc, United gave him a wee deal to add a bit of squad depth but he was coming in from the cold and with their situation, they couldn't really afford to give him a run of games to get his match sharpness up.

It's always hard to tell with players like him who have relied on their pace in their youth but I don't think he'd be a disaster of a signing for you guys.

Any truth to you having offered a contract to Iain Davidson?

 

Think this is just based off of one tweet by a random Raith fan weeks ago. Most likely havering shite I hope. Be back up anyway
