Asked this on the away day thread but may get more traction in here. Looking for a pub pre-match within walking distance of the ground which will have the football on the tele and serve food on Saturday? 

I’ve been to the Osnaburg, just off the high street before games for food and they show the football. Not exactly right next to the ground but plenty pubs en route

Stay away from Bar 10 unless you are a fully paid up member of the Conservative Party..

Just read that George Stanger is coming to you on loan.  He's been playing at right back for East Kilbride and has impressed me every time I've watched him.

Good to hear. Is he typically a centre half? Or more comfortable on the right?

Forfar want to sign New Zealand Under-21 international centre-back George Stanger on loan from Hamilton in January. He worked with with Stuart Malcolm at EK.

Andy Jackson coming back to Brechin? Rumours?

How has he been doing?

We did say most of the players you took from us had been involved in two relegation's. Jackson always worked hard but the defensive systems Dodds / Smith out in place never helped him or other strikers.

Pie sales would drop.

 

Would be only negative about such a move if it happened.

Didn't look fit at the start of the season and can't say I noticed any hard work from him. Just a poor signing, I'm afraid.

Jackson has scored goals consistently at this level for about a decade so on paper was a fair enough signing. He's just never been fit and looks like he needs about three pre seasons into him now I'm afraid.

When Jacko signed I thought he'd be a good backup to Hilly but he has never been fit, and even less so now after his head injury. He also signed a 2 year deal with us so could Brechin actually afford a transfer fee?

I wouldn't miss him if he left, however, it would leave us light in the striker department (lighter in both senses 😁) as the only true strikers we have at the club are Hilly & Matty Aitken, as Forbes and Kirkpatrick are more midfielders than strikers, in my opinion.

See he's gone on loan to Brechin, that makes sense financially for the Hedge. Anyone heard any rumours about Stuart Malcolm's transfer/loan targets now Stanger has joined and Jacko has left?

Daily record saying Morrison from us going to you guys on loan.

Decent centre back, played well against celtic. I rate him above Danny Devine but we've got five centre backs now.

That’s more of a rant against Bar 10 rather than a pertinent answer to the question. You banned?

If we were to sign him, we would have 5 CBs

5 CBs? Travis, Whyte, Stanger and potentially Morrison. Who have I missed? Stuart Malcolm putting his boots on?

I agree though we have a plethora of defenders but only Hilly and Matty Aitken up top, and only Coupe as a true winger.
