Thinking more a team360 one. Sports consultants who after a quick scroll through have Chris Hamilton, Ben Williamson and Callum Smith on their books

 

Watching their YouTube highlights and the standard in that Highland League looks lower end League 2 and that’s the better teams so the goal tally got to be taken with a pinch of salt. Hester a great example, more interested in how he is as an all round player. Looks like the reason he ended up at Inverurie purely because it’s his local side so maybe one of them that got missed by league clubs when he was let go by Aberdeen (during Covid which made things more difficult I imagine) 

According to my father-in-law, season ticket holder at Brechin, top 6 Highland league, could probably compete at the lower end of league 2, the rest are absolute dross, steep learning curve for the laddie, but in Dick we trust

Seen a comment from presumably his mate that said Inverurie refused to let him go on trial at Queens Park. So must have had some interest from other clubs

His stats must be mental. I’m guessing at or near the top of defensive duels won for a midfielder and not good on passing.

How I get him.

Thanks. I’m not sure where the aerial goal threat stat comes from. I don’t remember one header on goal.

Its a work in progress thats still flawed. Based on aerial duels won + touches in the box, to try and predict it. I can see headed goals but not headed shots, so trying to make something work.

Yeah everything spot on but that aerial threat

Aye I think players who win lots of headers get too much of a boost in it so I've always planned to weight it more towards touches in the box and headed goals, but never really get the time to spend an hour or so experimenting anymore.

Chris Hamilton doesn’t so much win headers, through sheer determination he doesn’t lose them.

Am currently on my holidays in Turkey, and to be honest, struggling to sleep, so bored I delved back in this thread to when we sacked Lumsden/Hislop and appointed Dick Campbell, and some posts are interesting to say the least, but the thing that is glaringly obvious to me, is that most of us and I include myself in this, is how little we actually know about the game, we absolutely love, oh it's about page 109, where the carnage begins

That was way before my posting days but I was a long time lurker and remember it well.

Something I often think about is - what if Lumsden won one or two more games that season and never got sacked? Where would we be now? Who would be our coach? What would the last 6 seasons have looked like? Would we even still be in the top 4 leagues?

Personally, I remember being a little sceptical about Campbell’s appointment. I knew he would keep us up but thought he was too old-school and that it would simply be a stop gap appointment to do just that then move on. As you say - what do we know about the game?

I will always be eternally grateful to Tod Lumsden for being so terrible - he played a very important part in our subsequent success 😆

Also seen Chris Hamilton has signed for the Pars, will surely do a job for them in League 1. Quality player.

Long term deal apparently. All his family are Pars fans, so that maybe helped swing it for us.

Looks like 1320 was the man of vision in hose days.

So with Arbroath getting 3 our players and you lads wanking over your squad you should beat us every game this season???

Wait and see

The £8k to Forfar for Swanks is a revealing read.

Incidentally 5-0, 2-1, 1-0 & 2-0.
