The Arbroath Thread


Recommended Posts

I’m going to go against the grain a little here and say that I didn’t think it merited a red at the time (was celebrating it though) and I still don’t. Free kick and a yellow card.
If every mistimed jump/foul when two players jump for a ball and have a tangle, was a red then we’d have multiple sending offs in every game. I don’t think any Arbroath fans would be happy if it happened to eg O’Brien at the other end.

The red card was nothing to do with the nature of the "tangle", indeed that same foul in the middle of the park wouldn't have been a card at all. The card was for denying a goalscoring opportunity.

Cammy Gill on his way to you lot I've been told back up to Gaston.

Fits the bill. Been on loan here before I think. This is always the most boring news in off season so glad it’s been sorted quickly

Don't know much about him to be fair,I'd imagine he is way better than Antell.

I have no recollection of his previous loan, but you are right. Don't think he played a game (although I can't imagine Wikipedia is that accurate with his career stats!).

 

I actually came in here today to post (jokingly) about the lack of transfers!

Nah he never played, so Wikipedia is correct on that front. Generally quite reliable for player stats anyway as it’s usually fans of the clubs putting them on

Antell came from a decent Edinburgh City team.

Gill is coming from a shite Cowdenbeath team that just been relegated.

So not sure how you can imagine him to be better than Antell.

Watched Antell play plenty a few years ago just my opinion really didn't think he was up too much.Also if he was that good he wouldn't be signing for a Lowland league team?

Wouldn't read too much into Cowdenbeath finishing bottom most player's play better with better player's around them.Pretty sure when you lads finished 2nd bottom of league 2 theirs still a few players in your squad now.

All correct. Either way he’ll only be playing in league cup games and if Gaston injured anyway

He’ll have had lots of practice saving shots.

Wee snippet from Dick tonight is he said on Friday he needed to tell 3 boys they are being let go. Clearly didn't name names

A lot of what DC says is usually a wee bit exaggerated and can be taken with a pinch of salt

 

Hilson only guy out of contract that I’m aware of? 
 

ETA: actually it’ll be Hilson, Bakare and Ford
 

Bakare and Ford I feel quite sorry for. Not a clue why we signed them. Moved up here and stayed in digs and barely kicked a ball

True, he reiterated it twice to Richard Gordon in the Q&A. Thinks he needs 7 players coming in

Bakare and Ford, both looked signings for signing sake, both were not was required at the time, we were screaming out for someone to play the left side, instead we got this pair, neither of which, fitted the bill

7 sounds right. 3 leaving, Swankie retired and 3 loans going back.

So I imagine 

 

Cammy Gill or back up keeper 

 

3/4 signings that are our players 

 

2/3 loans 

 

so might get some news in next 2/3 weeks in regards to the top 2 and then the loans are usually late into July

You cant beat uncle Dick wanting 5 strikers for one position.

I mean, i keep being told, we cant argue with his track record ( which of course is true )

But yeah 5 strikers, one position is excessive, especially when he doesnt rotate.

We threw this away, how he wins manager of the year is just down to how bad the league is, we have the pick of the best part timers in the country, dominate the league, and old uncle fester wont change it up.

Dont change a winning team i hear you moan, we were not winning, we were throwing points away all over the place.

Guys sat on a bench and have little to no chance of coming on, poor b*****ds moved up here aswell
