The Arbroath Thread

Recommended Posts

We tried to fit in Swankie, Doris, Samuel and Sibanda and it just didn't work.


Think Swankie got like 20 goals up to Samuel signing then only 1 after he did. Sure we actually tried all 3 uptop too in some games

Swankie was superb for the first half of that season. Samuel signed and he hardly kicked a ball the rest of the season. Played well in the play off game at home to Dumbarton but we couldn't find the net.

How that game ended 0-0 nobody will ever know, We totally dominated the game and hit them with absolutely everything we had, was incredible, any other day we win that game 6-0 lol

Edited by 36-0 Maroon

When Gaston made that outstanding save at Tannadice last weekend then first thing I said to my dad was it was Grindley esque - said by each of us 4/5 times a season when a keeper makes a worldie save. 10 odd years later and that c**t and his heroics still haunt us :(

Speaking of keepers I see Alloa might be without their cracking keeper Parry till the end of the season

 

The guy that played in goal in the 3-2 league cup game at Gayfield looked far from convincing

 

Said we shouldn't have used a first team wage on Gaston... but if same happened to DJ we would be sorted, so definitely harsh on DC there

 

Although still wish we signed another striker or wide player on loan instead of 3 centre mids

I guess the assistant has lost view of the Thistle defender towards this side. I reckon his line of sight means he only sees the Arbroath player and puts the flag up. Lovely move too, deserved the correct decision.

Just watched the game again this morning.

The commentators were havering like f**k about the "conditions". Its a bit "windy"
"Arbroath will be used to playing in this sort of weather"


The flag was barely fluttering and they were making out it was like hurricane bawbag

Exactly @RedLichtie86 Its like the world class producers have said to the commentors. 'Right lad, arbroaths near the sea, make sure we tell every**** Its like a scene from twister out there. And oh, arbroath are part time!

Weather had absolutely sweet FA to affect the game last night. Just some amateur linesman

So we finish the weekend in 4th position. It’s been a really encouraging start to the season. Lads will be full of confidence for our trip to Tannadice next weekend

United’s wheels have fallen off already, genuinely dont feel we should fear anyone in this league.

We’ve got a solid team with some very good players and as long as we can keep everyone fit i think we’ve got a great chance of staying up. We all knew we didn’t have a goalscorer and i doubt bobby can repeat his tally of last season so we’ll need everyone to chip in

Great performance last night, really happy with the point but felt we deserved and were robbed of the 3, We have been excellent so far and should fear nobody with the great players and squad we have. Roll on Tannadice next week

Hopefully get a good support through, like I said before you'd hope for 700ish like a Montrose game

Hardest fixture of the season with absolutely zero pressure on us

Does anyone know the opening hours for the office at Gayfield? Had no reply to an email I've sent and couldn't get through on the phone this afternoon....
