Half the squad are not up to the East of Scotland League far less the East Super League.
Changes needed to strengthen squad especially at the back.
 
Stop talking rubbish. Bar Shields quality is fine but we are 2 or 3 short in numbers.

There is the nucleus of a very decent team but lacks depth.

What Mark has achieved this season virtually from scratch is commendable.

This time last year we were staring at relegation. With players of the calibre of Coogans, Beaumont and Williams attracted at no small cost by imposters of managers.

Whilst I would never advocate wilful spending on players. There has to be a balance - we chose to install lights and reduce playing budgets.

Resulting in a threadbare squad decimated by injuries leaving us with 1 sub today.

Going out the 2 Scottish cups didn’t help the budget 


Installing lights for cash instead of financing was a strange choice. Especially if it then impacts what goes on the park

You can't guarantee runs in the Scottish every year.

We finished last season with 6 players worth keeping and the rest needing moved on. That's a minimum of 10 players to be signed. At every level of football a certain number of players brought in to a team don't perform, so it was always going to be extremely difficult to make all the changes necessary. I thought it would take two years to get back on an even keel.

Most of Bradley's signings have worked very well, we had major problems at left back and in creativity in midfield, and he solved them with Turnbull, Roddy, Ruari and Ronald. Malone didn't work out and Coco has had injury problems. Rose were alright at the back last season but they only scored 39 in the 30 league games (and many of those after Bradley came in). So far this season they've got 47 from 20 games. It's night and day.

We're still favourites to finish 2nd, and at the start of the season who wouldn't have considered that a success? We finished last season 29 points behind Bonnyrigg and 15 behind Bo'ness. Bit of perspective called for here.

Fuzzy away from the juniors how good can mikey devlin be for the dons 
Not sure he will get a game to be honest. Pretty good for us but not a superstar. Hope he does well as he is a really nice bloke.

To busy engaging with our committee on our own forum.
 

 

Most of your committee wouldn't know what a computer is.   Engaging with the Braddo brigade you mean, the rebels that caused good men like Jim to leave because of their vile attacks.

Do keep up half wit. The rebels caused McGlynn to be punted as he was more useless than useless.

 

The good man fell on his sword and rightfully so. After some of his comments on here which were not befitting of a Rose committee man, he had to walk. So your statement of committee men not knowing what a computer is is inaccurate. 

 

Braddo should never have been constructively dismissed in the first place.
