Port Talbot Loons

Forfar Athletic News 2018 onwards

Recommended Posts

As I said further up the thread, I think this is an odd signing. He didn’t get great service at Brechin but he’s slow and cumbersome.

Not sure where Forfar are getting their stats from, he’s only scored once this season and he’s just about started every game.

Did we not learn that signing a player from Brechin always ends in a disaster! Especially an over the hill journeyman who has the speed and grace of a cargo ship!?

Edit: and an 18 month deal at that!

Tin pot?

You mean it's less bare facts and more like a supporter?

Waiting a week or two for his Loons debut seems optimistic.

Are they using the term ‘Athies’ ? That is definitely tinpot.

I think there are 2 Tweeters (is that the correct term?) on the club's Twitter. One of the directors does the official stuff and away matches. The home match tweeter is someone else, someone probably younger.

For me I don't find a problem with the match-day Tweet updates, it's better to see a tweet saying (GOOAALL! FOXY!) Rather than (Goal 97' Fotheringham Forfar 2 - Linlithgow 1)

We just haven't scored very often so these tweets aren't very common.

Jimmy Scott, did a good job for us and was a bit of a fans favourite, albeit a couple of years back, hes never been very quick or agile so get some energy and legs around him and he will be fine, cannot question his natural ability or his work rate and also seemed a very popular guy. I still remember a game where he held the ball in the corner for what seemed about 7 minutes of injury time, might have been Elgin.

Aye wtf is that all about? I’ve noticed that quite often on Forfar’s stuff now and I’ve never, ever known them to be known as the Athies. Thought I had missed something.
