The Montrose Thread

Recommended Posts

The young lad kieran has done very well looks a good neat player. Not been too impressed either but I think it's more where the players are playing for me. Last two games we have had 5-6 players playing out of position,which I know it's pre season and you can change things about but Paul Watson Centre half, webby right back, callaghan at left back just seems a bit odd. Like I said pre season is for trying new things but with a week or so to go before out first game I would think he would start playing the players in the correct positions.

We still need to sort out the right back slot and also need a striker and that's why SP was after Swankie. For me am glad that didn't happen but am sure we will see a striker in soon, whether it's a permanent deal or on loan. Will injuries and holidays the gaffer has not much choice but to fill the gaps. League most important and sure the team will come together by then.

I think the Brechin game will be a good indicator of where we are. They're at the level that we should be aspiring to so we'll see how far we still have to go.

A lot of first team regulars missing & youth players filling the gaps. I don't think today will be any real indication of how we will be over the coming season.

Hope that's not a indication of the season ahead as that was poor. Brechin not much better. Lot of players missing. Keiran Thomson looks the part in the middle of the park so hope he gets a chance around the 1st team this season. Next game up vs Dons select team. Need to build up bit of confidence before the cup games start. Won't be there but hopefully get a win.

Brechin were miles better and could ve stepped up the pace ( not often i ve said that) so don t slag us up ...You guys were understrength and played schoolboys so were alway s up against it . Both teams will improve but good luck to Montrose

Disjointed sort of game yesterday like the last two really. Good run out for the young lads that's about it really pre season is a boring old time in my eyes . 100% need another striker andy a new right back. Think it will be the loan market now as we don't seem to have any trialists. Anyone seen big Templeman???

Saturday was a good reminder of why I don't usually bother with PSF's, very dull and we didn't learn terribly much. Roll on next month....

PSFs: I remember a beautiful midweek summer evening at LP when the Dons paid us a visit. There was a reasonable-sized crowd. I don't remember much about the game itself but the evening had a touch of a holiday atmosphere about it. There was football and unlike in the league, losing by two or three goals wasn't a big deal.

Maybe golfers would have enjoyed a summer evening out on a fairway more, but for me it wasn't a bad use of time at all.

 

 

That said, it will probably be Baltic and hissing it down with rain the night!

Getting a wee bit worried about our threadbare squad and lack of goals - six games in - six straight defeats and only one goal scored from the penalty spot against non-league opposition.

Here's hoping we see some new faces in the next couple of weeks.

Yes have to agree. Need to get a right back sorted out. Get Watson back into midfield and get another attacker in as we lack that cutting edge so far. We will be fine once we sign another couple and get over our injury problems. Roll on the League campaign.

I agree. The bizarre thing is, I've always found that a good pre-season is followed by a bad season, and vice versa. Let's hope that's the case again this season. No one will remember these games if we have a good league campaign.

These early defeats are a bit demoralising but hopefully the manager is pushing hard to get these desperately needed extra players in. We were never going to win last night but a 0-6 home defeat is chronic regardless of the opposition.
