Elgin City 2018/19

Recommended Posts

Im feeling very similar to that aswell. JP has been a good player for us. Think his legs are starting to go now but as you say his influence off the park will be badly missed I think.
I think this season proved how big a player Thomas Reilly was for us. I think he was very much under rated by our support. His partnership with Soapy was brilliant for a couple of seasons.

For next season we need to stop conceding so many avoidable goals. The amount we have given away this season has been criminal

same old same old for me. massive rebuild required for next season new goalie left back centre back two wide players a centre mid and. a striker. Falling crowds and growing apathy apparent. It seems that the interest of a few seasons back is starting to drop off and that another season of mediocrity cannot be allowed to happen

I agree. The apathy has been steadily building this season. The fall in crowds is becoming quite alarming. The Albion Rovers game was the worst performance I've possibly ever seen. Not just because the lack of quality which was poor on its own, but for that lack of any kind of fight.
The fact that Cooper came out after the game and said he could tell in the warm up that Elgin were going to play like that is particularly alarming.
Do we cut our losses and appoint another management team to carry out this rebuild needed or give Gav another shot at it?
I'm undecided.

If McHale is actually going to be around for next season I'd be happy with him as our first choice keeper. We need an experienced centre half to get our defence organised, I think the individual quality is there but there's no leadership. Putting our hopes on Craig Beattie was a mistake, he talked a good game and had a decent rep but his legs were gone and he was virtually silent in every game he played.

I don't think replacing Price is the answer, if he's willing to give it another season and he has the backing of the club.

I would be happy if McHale was available for next season. About time our 1st choice goalie was a signed player.

I believe he moved back to England due to losing his job with Moray Council so not sure staying in Moray is an option.

Definitely think an experienced Centre Half is a priority. A 20 goal a season striker who will stay a few years and consistently score that many would also be great rather that loan strikers who do ok for a month then that's it.
We haven't had that since Gunny lost his place in the team then left.

I didn't actually realise Gunn was away from Elgin!
He was there for years as well eh?
Was there not a mad stat doing the rounds that any game Gunn scored first in, Elgin were never beaten?

Aye he left a couple of years ago.

He was there for a long time. Elgin's leading ever league scorer by a good distance.

Not sure on that stat but could well be true

Thought he was moving down to central belt with a job but noticed earlier somebody thought he was playing at Wick, think it was up that neck of the woods he came from originally.

Yet another defeat after conceding late on. 6 defeats in a row with Peterhead to come at the weekend. Awful end to the season. Really worrying signs.

We seem to be in a giving mood just now.  Nothing to suggest it won't be the same next week.  Unfortunately I won't be able to go to this one which means I will not have made any trips to Elgin this season, I will have to make up for it next season if we're in the same league or if not then the year after when we'll be back here again.

if he is willing to give it another season is this for real- we have been shit and are going backwards fast.

Any chance you could drag your players back from the beach and try and give Peterhead a game next week? Much appreciated.

We've not scored against them in about 10 years never mind beat them, so I think getting any sort of positive result next week is highly unlikely

See Jordan Lowdon is joining Stirling Albion next year. Any chance we could get Jordan Allen back as he is the better defender by far imo.

Agreed would be happy with Allan back. Lowden been a let down.

Relieved to see Lowden going. Never rated him. Failed to cut out crosses time and again. Even going forward his final cross was often poor.

Gourlay is being released by us at the end of the season. Chance he could sign permanently?

I'm not to disappointed about Lowden leaving either TBH. He started well the 1st few games but has been very poor since Xmas.

Would like to see Gourlay sign permanently but it will be the usual route of another loan goalie next season I'm sure
