Stenhousemuir FC - The Warriors - The 2022/23 Thread

Nat Wedderburn: not for me.

A decent passer of the ball over short distances but slow to the point of immobile. Signing Wedderburn and Ross Forbes, two players not really known for their ability to get around the pitch, goes against what Stephen Swift said in his first interview for Warriors TV when he revealed he wants his team to play high intensity, with a high press.

Nevertheless, I hope Wedderburn can do a turn for us.

Meanwhile, Ryan McGeever has signed a two-year deal with Dumbarton, so I apologise for posting utter toot on this thread. I don't know what came over me.

Wedderburn was really good when he played for Cowden seems like a lifetime ago. He was never fast but didn’t have to be.

Big Wedderburn uses the ball very well, but his complete lack of athleticism makes him a bit of a passenger if you've not got plenty of runners around him. I wouldn't be overly-enthused about the idea of he and Ross Forbes sharing the pitch on a regular basis, particularly against the more front-footed sides in the division.

Our team for the season ahead (so far!):

GOALKEEPERS

  • Ryan Marshall (signed from BSC Glasgow)
  • Graeme Smith

DEFENDERS

  • BJ Coll (signed from Forfar Athletic)
  • Adam Corbett
  • Ross Lyon (signed from BSC Glasgow)
  • Jamie Mills (signed from BSC Glasgow)
  • Jordan Tapping (signed from East Stirlingshire)

MIDFIELDERS

  • Michael Anderson (signed from BSC Glasgow)
  • Adam Brown (signed from Alloa Athletic)
  • Ross Forbes (signed from Dumbarton)
  • Declan Hughes (signed from BSC Glasgow)
  • Callum Tapping
  • Nat Wedderburn (signed from Dumbarton)

FORWARDS

  • Cammy Graham
  • David Hopkirk
  • Thomas Orr (signed from Stranraer)
  • Robert Thomson (signed from Alloa Athletic)

OUT ON LOAN

  • Josh Grigor (Syngenta)

I think we must be close to finishing our business. More defensive cover, some wide players and another forward option and we're about done.

I wonder when we'll hear about Paul Brown and Callum Erskine, or if we're bringing in anyone on loan from Hibernian.

Wedderburn was good for us when he played at centre back.

Was really poor in midfield. Far too slow.

Yep we do seem to need another central defender. Any news on Crichton?

None of the fullbacks seem to have had good reviews. Most of the others, if they don’t get universal plaudits, they get some good reviews

Wonder what formation we will start out using?

Got to assume Buzz won't be fit if Erskine has been offered terms along with the signing of Ryan Marshall

Of course, Smith won't be back until September (or maybe before) (or maybe after).

Crichton as captain? Sounds like yer man that had C Tapping coming to City this year might be on to something....... Delighted if true!

Yeah it does seem likely considering Wedderburn and Hughes have been signed. Naysmith would have had Tappy at QOTS as well would be sad to see him go but it can't dampen what is probably the most exciting time to be a Warrior's fan in as long as I can remember.

Crighton, Forbes and Thomson are really decent names for a diddy club like ourselves complimented with the other guys who have arrived.

an absolute rock when he played for Montrose

 

er, no he wasn't. a centre half in one of our worst ever teams under Steven Tweed. Tweed gave up on him and released him at the end of the 09/10 season- rightly so.

Crighton is a really nice guy but his football career has been really chequered.

Weederburn has more than enough talent to handle himself at this level, as does Forbes. Both with different strengths but with the same weekness in lack for pace.  They’ll probably work in a 5 man midfield, especially if it’s 4-2-3-1.  It is however vital however at least 2 and possibly all 3 of the the rest are high energy cover every blade  types.

Oh really?? Apologies then Ivo and I stand corrected. Who played alongside Dillon in your promotion side then?
