I think this has been one of the more enjoyable seasons in recent memory! Some of the football we’ve played has been great to watch.

Bit of a lull before the playoffs now but I don’t see why we can’t give them a go!

Agree with this up until the last few weeks i've seen us play fast attacking football on the deck. Easton and Reilly have dropped out though and there's not a lot to be excited by. Defender on the right wing, defender in the middle of the park and the front two have had little to work with. The last few games i've been at i've been bored senseless.

Over the peace, a very good season. Jim, has been passionate in his interviews.
Ross as chairman, is breath of fresh air.
Don’t want to sound negative, but would need to keep Easton and Reilly, even Bones Malone.
Give the young lads a go last few games, plus Eddie, Easton and Reilly..
Passing game has been fantastic, but stop punting high balls, to the forwards, there dewarfed, by opposing defenders.
Get behind our team, and push for 2nd place!
Big strengthen required, if we got promoted, more depth.
Go for it boys

If Denholm is to leave Arbroath in the summer , should we take him back or not.

I'd love to see him back.

No. Twice is enough. Might be a bit petty of me but not keen on "defectors" returning from Gayfield.

If the giants of the Lowland league come calling then yes, more goals in Danny also.

I've no problem with Denholm coming back.  He's a fine player with plenty to offer any team. Clearly it'll depend on him being available and wanting to come back as well as him fitting into the style of play and shape that JW is trying to build. Will be interesting to see just how things work out for next season. But let's get this season settled first. A strong performance and convincing win at Stenhousemuir will do for starters.

Not for me either, we were good to him giving him his chance in senior football and didn't stand in his way when full time football became possible. When it went pear shaped we took him back. He then signed for our rivals. 

I remember at the Jim Weir introductory evening the question was posed by the grandfather of a young fan who hero worshipped Denholm as to whether we may try to get him back. JW's response was "I think we can do a bit better than Danny Denholm". I couldn't agree more.

I have my doubts but let's say we get promoted. Is DD that Arbroath deem superfluous to their forthcoming sojourn into the Championship and was an integral part of our title bottling team of 2017 really the way forward ?

Having watched Danny at Gayfield a number of times this season it is clear that his best days are long past. The "Forfar Danny Denholm" only exists in past memories.

I’ll just put this right out there, I’d much rather have Danny Denholm on the wing instead of Connor Coupe or Jamie Bain.

So Matty signs an extension for next season. Now all he needs is an injury free run in the team.
Of the lads on the books who hasn't signed yet?
Eddie, Dylan?

When Murray was announced they said it was  nine, so I guess 10 now.

Baird

Hilson

Whyte

Eckersley

McIntosh

Aitken

Don’t know the other 4.

Better using the glue for your air fix kit than sniffing it
