The Arbroath Thread

Recommended Posts

Looked fucked off our feet and all over place which is a wee bit understandable considering circumstances

Big bonus for me was Spence, looks sharper nippier and he's putting himself about and being a handful. Thought he looked leggy last season

Players will be ahattered but that's pre season over, we really need 3 quality loans in: attacking minded players too. Out wide, upfront and through the middle

Just have to put Ricky Little on Dobbie instead!
 
The RB not show anything?

Nah, regularly out of position at the back and showed nothing coming forward. Would be better off with Gold at RB.

I'm going to carry on with my usual stats for the coming season, but possibly adding other bits and bobs, so was thinking of starting a separate thread for any stats based info. For those that take an interest in it, would you prefer a separate thread or keep it in the current Arbroath thread.

Just keep it in here if it’s all Arbroath related

I think at this point how are season pans out is very much dependent on the 2/3 signings we've still to make and how they turn out. 2/3 good additions in the right areas and it gives us a good chance of fighting it out to stay up, but if we're unable to add the required quality we could end up really struggling.

I certainly wouldn't have a go at Dick for not making the required signings yet (not that you are!) as we're at a stage where it's very difficult to add to the squad. As everyone knows loans won't come through until August or so (remember when people demanded we didn't make any loan signings :lol: ) and in terms of permenent signings we're looking to add the best part time players available. Unfortunately Alloa have a load of them signed up already, as do we, and there are very few available, quality players in the positions we need to strengthen and Dick can't produce players out of thin air, or sign bang average players just for the sake of it. I'm happier having a small squad with signings needed at this stage than a squad of 18+ but the signings are all run of the mill average part time players.

Yeah what I feel.

The 3 new guys could take us to another level.

Really needing them, lost one of our best attacking players and haven't replaced him. Even if we were still in L1 I'd say we were currently weaker overall than last season purely because of that

Hoping DC can produce something to give us best chance possible

Stewart has certainly improved us, far better suited to the championship than Denholm and McCord who he has effectively replaced. Gaston is certainly an improvement on Hill.

2 Loans should really help us out but just hoping we get the right ones and they are in positions that we need.

Stewart definitely a big improvement on Denholm (last seasons Denholm anyway) I would agree but Wallace was so important to us going forward. Only 1 keeper will actually play so although that position is stronger don't think the starting 11 is

So basically, you don't want me signed up then. :lol:

Dom Thomas played for Killie last night. Still a player I’d like to see us get on loan this season

We signed Stewart as a winger played really good in centre mid against hearts. Against hibs played in the position we signed him and was poor. Spence and Doris looking sharper every week onwards and upwards lads

Agree with that. Stewart looked better centrally so far, but we can’t start Omar so hopefully gets a run on the wing during the league cup.

If McKenna is fit he’ll play every week.
