I would also have Annan as favourites with Stenny not far behind, we just do not have the goals in the team to really mount a challenge I feel.

I think that's spot on. As a team, my main concern is that Irvine hasn't been able to add goals to it. Keatings might be the answer, but he appears to be made of glass.

Will we be able to get our first genuine win in 90 minutes this weekend? 

The expectation is that Bonnyrigg are far better than Cowdenbeath. Based on that logic, a draw away from home would not be the worst result.

If Forfar stifle the threat of the big fella upfront, keep the shape when Rose get set pieces, the new players are settled and confident, don't fall down the slope (Matty), Slater controls the game, then it has to be a Forfar win.*

 

*On the other hand, it's Forfar.

To be fair . He was pish with us . But then again irvine fines our players if the ball goes near the opposition penalty area

Quite a few people say that Irvine's problem is his lack of plan B when plan A doesn't work. I had nothing better to do so I took a tactical deep dive and thought I'd share a few ideas that the Loons could do (even though Gary will never see them). Now I'm not qualified to lead a mini kick-about for children let alone have the certificates needed to coach and manage a professional football club but doing my best armchair manager thinking I've come up with 3 options that vary from the 4-4-2 Gary constantly pursues so that the team can make tweaks and changes to adapt to the game and opposition. Happy to hear other peoples ideas on these and their own suggestions. It's totally pointless but us fans do like to think we know more than the managers and coaching staff at clubs do.

Champ Man / FM knowledge is all I can contribute to the Forfar cause! 🙂

Brilliant, found that interesting and had a wee play with it too.

 

I'd prefer them to play this formation, as it allows Slater to drop deep and get on the ball however allows Hutton to protect if he drives forwards but enough in front of him to look for with his great passing.

When Whyte is back, the high wide forwards allows his good passing to be used rather than just punted up the middle to a single striker.

Just a thought

Every dog has its day, his was last week.

Wasn’t hooked he was taken off with severe concussion after being clattered about the head by a Bonnyrigg hammer-thrower and apparently spent last night in hospital, he was targeted for a few “crude” challenges shall we say, before his departure from the pitch but keep making it up as you go along though it’s quite entertaining!!!👍🏻

Sorry to hear that hope he recovers OK. Guess he’s a major doubt for Saturday then?
