Match preview for Saturday is up on the official site and Facebook, probably twitter too but I don't use that.

Sure there'll be further rumours from Saturday.

We have 17 signed players so there won't be many more to come in, definitely need a sub goalie but that's a hard position to recruit for. I'd imagine there'll be a couple of loans but they'll probably be August before they arrive

Managed to catch the first half today. Early days but I was quite happy with the team. Burns was probably least on form and seemed a bit unsure but Dunfermline were sleek and fast moving so maybe short of pace today. Tapping is certainly one to watch - great work rate and movement. Kirkpatrick had nice touches. Jackson seems to be carrying a couple of extra pounds. Probably just coincidence there were no bridies left before the game had started...

Ross Forbes looking good. He'll be a key player this season.

No problems with guys from last season. All did well and Hilson looks set to continue as he finished last season. Chases every ball, upsets defenders and his control is still excellent.

Good run out today, 10 minute spell in the 1st half where the defence looked ragged but otherwise we were the better side in both halfs.

I was at the game on Saturday and have to say that Forfar looks a bloody good team. Some very neat play up front and a fair bit pace too. Your forward play was excellent and kept both our keepers very busy.  You guys have a good team on your hands, and by all accounts it’s still getting built? 

Our second half team appeared to have a lot more energy in their play and looked no to bad at all, still couldn’t get through your defence though. 

I enjoyed my trip up the road, and could see that we have some really good players on our hands, we just have to hope that the Craw can find a winning combination amongst our players.

I can’t argue with that. Forfar looked really sharp and quick. Judging by that performance you guys should easily be contenders for top four.

Very, very surprised that you have signed Mcguff.

Why?

He's a body to sit on the bench only. Would think he'll have the same chance of displacing McCallum as all the other keepers we have had.

As for Saturday thought we looked pretty good but as expected the loss of Baird and Eckersley will be hard to deal with (I think the players we have brought in to replace Easton, Reilly, Spencer and Malone are as good or better personally). Certainly plenty of midfield options but think we need another striker and centre half in the mix.

On the evidence of last season, which is admittedly scant in Sam McGuff's case, Forfar now have the best and worst goalkeepers in the division.


How often did he play?

He played once. Unfortunately, once was enough.
 

That performance would make Darren hill look good

Fair number of positives from the 1-0 win over Morton today. Coupe started and had an excellent game. Great run and shot (20 mins) from a good cross field pass. Came off with 20 minutes left, replaced by Aitken. Kirkpatrick showing some good touches, does a power of running and a good goal after fine Forfar play down the right. He's linking up nicely with Hilson. Thought Docherty was excellent. Still unsure about Burns.

Jackson, Tapping, Whyte & Meechan on for McIntosh (very good performance), Forbes (very quiet) Docherty and Burns at half time. Jack Allan came on for Irvine late on. Meechan did very well, as did Tapping. Whyte looked good but Jackson disappointing. Early days.
