Some research into this player if true. 
Former clubs on here speak highly of him strong, physical and clinical. That's what we need just now so hopefully he can prove his worth with us if true 


Aye, that's what we thought we signed. Wasn't at all impressed with him to be honest. Didn't really fit in with the Rose. Nae height or pace. Best of luck!

Well whoever we are going to sign it needs to be now so is a start.

even if he is good it’s not going to make the difference, would  need another 1 or 2 offensive players if we are going to start winning some games.

Can't we pick up the phone to Mixu and see if he can recommend a few Finnish players while they are on their winter break.

In answer to your query if we dropped out of this  league would it survive. Personally I think a lot would depend on whether fans have the drive to want it to survive, the ability to attract continued investment, Club 135, 100 Club and other initiatives continuing and have enough people willing to continue to run the club. The very thought of Lowland League football is a horrible one and one where I think could be a very bleak future for the club on where and what we want to achieve. East Stirlingshire are still here but that said you can see the difficulties in getting out of the league then you have to beat the Highland League then SPFL. Hopefully those rules may change as sooner or later there will be more teams that will probably drop out of the SPFL then they might decide more to come up or change the playoffs or get rid of them. Worst case scenario might be the pyramid is voted to be scrapped which is fine if your in the SPFL but not if your in the Lowland League. Not sure if this is possible though. 

It is unfortunate we as a club cannot present something to our wider fanbase like yourself  and there have been suggestions for games to be recorded etc but to do this requires volunteers etc. 

Keep the faith. Bollan I feel will turn things around from what I have seen and is a very experienced manager with determination and a reputation to uphold. The players appear to be working under him whilst being managed/trained in a more professional way  and hopefully he can bring the right players in during this window. 

Still lots of points to be won or lost but we must start getting the 3 points now or we could be really cut a drift. 

 

Thanks for taking the time to give me such a long and detailed response. Half expected to be told to do one being a newbie here and all ;)

I can see your point about how hard it is to get back up. A whole season of making it to the top of the pile only to lose out in to the winners of the Highland League or SPFL drop outs. My main concern is despite schemes like Club 135 and 100 Club (which I have contibuted to)  with attendances so poor will there be any money without SPFL to keep the club existing ?

It is tough never seeing any footage..hard to keep track of players and who is actually any good. Have been following the club for more than 40 years and it is never easy. Finally managed to make it to the Abroath defeat at CP last year and it was magical. Fingers crossed I can make it back this season. Having reading both of Ron Fergusons books it made me realise how far and wide the supporters are. Would be good to have a way to find out where the groups are and plan some trips.

As far as I can tell Bollan has improved things apart from last weeks unfortunate blip.  Draws rather than defeats and holding their own against the top two are positives but as you said we need to start scoring more than the odd goal and turning 1 into 3 points regularly.  Seems like Clyde are the team we need to climb above to be safe. Funny how finishing 9th would feel like my other CFC team winning the league again down south.

Good to hear from you though. Let's hope tomorrow brings us a bit of joy.

Signing Malone is fecking crazy. He is a below average junior player and after seeing him on Saturday he is 2 stone overweight.

I believe the relegated club from League 2 gets a parachute payment for a few years. Can't remember the exact deal, but we don't want to be thinking about that do we?

Might be, but it is worth a punt if he is cheap. He might improve, given the chance.

I think you get something like £40k the 1st year and £20k the 2nd year.

Its less than what we will be getting at present. If the Shire don't make it this year we will really see how the impact hits a club as they won't have a payment next season, although if they get into the top 4 they will get into the Irn Bru Cup.

It wouldn't be the first time an overweight striker has came to us and been a hit. If he genuinely is hefty and slow but can hold a ball, playing Connelly alongside him could be a shout? He seems to have better movement off the ball than Muirhead in my opinion.

Muirheads movement, effort and general play isn’t good enough. In his defence though, he is too isolated at times.

Connelly has scored our goal of the season so far and has a bit about him. However he’s just turned 17 and in recent sub appearances he doesn’t seem ready for senior football yet.
