Rather see Matty get a run of games tbh.
Sorely overlooked this season. He's either got to get a run of games or thank him for last season and say cheery bye

Surprised he wasn't brought on earlier as Baird and Hilson were both poor again

The laddie needs to be starting. Not fussed if Baird or Hilson drop out but Hilson's old connection with Sanny would be a good fit with Matty.

If Jim wants some hunger and desire then start the young guns, i am expecting at least 3 changes next Saturday.

That was a telling interview. His disappointment in the team was obvious and it just about covered up his anger. Wouldn't have liked to have been on the receiving end of his post'game talk.

Yes, at the very least three changes. Not one out-field player should feel his place is guaranteed next week.

Said in the match thread at start of week we needed freshening up and that was clear today. For all that we will be in the play-offs and that was our aim at start of season , think that some players could do with a week or two rest up.

Wonder who the redhead foaming mess was blaming for that performance today?
He almost had a meltdown before Easton got punted against Airdrie and we've shown next to nothing without him in the side since.

I remember carrots getting banned from Forfar Albion. He was running the line and we ended up 1-0 down at half-time. Carrots wasn’t happy and decided to remonstrate with the ref on the way back to the clubhouse. He obviously didn’t get the answers he was looking for because he gave the ref a clout around the lug with his flag! Cue swift exit out the gate!

Not enough of that in the game imho.

I've been impressed with what JW is doing with the team. There seems to be a good team spirit - during the warm-up the guys look as if they're enjoying being part of the Forfar. Even the subs warm up looked to be fun. There's a solid defence with Travis  (well, sometimes although I thought his covering was excellent today). I wonder if Irvine's role is to steady the ship? 
If Reilly and Easton do leave, and I'm not sure they will, any replacements will tell us the Club's ambition because they will have to be at least as good as those guys.
I'm looking on the positive way ahead.
The club is in better shape than many a season. Chapping the Championship door again and people are still greetin. JW has done a great job and top half of Div1 with ambition to get spanked in the Championship is really at the upper limits of a club our size. I've seen mainly away games this year and ok there has been a few duff performances like at Airdrie a couple of weeks back but generally their is a great spirit in the squad. For my money Raith will still be playoff semi favourites as they should be spunking £400,000 of debt to be distant runners up to Arbroath but we will certainly have a go. As regards Easton he can be frustrating but you need someone with his quality in the mix not just journeyman players. I will take a season like this anytime.

Can only agree, some people need to have a think back one season and see where we were at this time last season.

My mates a Brechin fan. He would bite your hand off for our current position. Bar an exceptional season at Gayfield we would be fighting it out for the title next few Saturdays. Perspective not a strong point with some fans..

Think Jim has done well and Ross Graham is a breath of fresh air as chairman .
Only problem is that fat fucking ginger steward , obviously bullied at the school

We  spunked 400k of debt whatever that means to be runners up to Ayr

Take your point. Seems more reasonable when you put it like that...
Obviously you have built on that "investment" this year to ensure top 3 at least..
