A win and a defeat last season at Montrose so I am going to hazard a guess as a low scoring draw. Missed last week and only saw highlights which means I am reluctant to say much. My usual companions at games were not impressed but we are still sticking by our visit. Moving away from the bottom spot would ease my concerns. As to home record since the plastic surface I suspect it has not been as good as grass days, but neither have the squads been . We used to think the old Broomfield meant home bankers whilst Broadwood was barren times. Given that the majority of grounds are now plastic we should be able to adapt our game.  

I agree with that, but it could go any direction.

Should be an entertaining game and that’s the main thing.

Look forward to you coming to the Links Park.

Aye must be a clone ,every week same old journey to the game ,for years ,I only said once , I thought Jackson got to much room and time and thought the keeper maybe could have done better,surely someone else thought that ,The keeper is allowed to come of his line ,think a want  Rohan back ,opinion of a moaning twat clone .

Hutton for me is a huge step up from Rohan but it's all relative I suppose. What both of them have in common is that they find it difficult to command a box due to being sub six footers. Look at the Forfar goalie on Saturday, competent and assured at set pieces which instills confidence in the back four. I'm sure this is not lost on Murray.

You're not getting it.....You must be a clone!..... You must be a clone!.... You must be a clone! (Get the idea?)
No diversity of opinion will be approved.
But please keep posting here JR as it both annoys the establishment and more importantly allows  opinions to be expressed that contradict the majority view of the clique.

"Annoys the establishment" what are you on about mate?

We are blessed with McCallum. The guy is capable at much higher levels but I think Forfar suits his personal circumstances and he's a local lad. If Airdrie had got ahead un the first half I doubt they would have fell out of the game like they did. Fully expect Airdrie to settle and pick up the pace a bit in the league.

Notice the manager used Hawkshaw as example if new boy does well in reserves he will get chance to play in big team,Hawkshaw has already played at a higher level than most in our so called big team .,be better if our scouts went to some games at a higher level, rather than sit at surgery door waiting on  a young hopeful that has been injured to persuade him to join our reserves and if your any good you will get a shot in the our big team !!

2 games played -fourth in the table! It will be a long season and only 34 to go. Posted on MO thread but I was glad to get off the bottom. As early as this it looks like Dumbarton are in danger  but everyone else will be chasing for the play offs at the top?

Wasn't able to go to the game today. Anyone who did make it able to comment on McKay or Roberts? Interested to see how they looked

McKay  was solid - no fannying about - "when in doubt kick it out" - as my old man used to say. Can throw a long throw in and made a couple of good tackles. Roberts is a player - made some lovely runs, made simple passes and dug in when he had to.  I think the boy is a talent (and I aint his dad, maw, aunt, uncle or dug)

Yes McKay looked better there and more natural FB than Fordyce who was much better at CB than Kerr. He also did more than his twin in this 90 minutes. Roberts has a mobility and strength as well as skill, so should retain his starting slot. I also think Crighton should be praised for his defensive cool in that dodgy spell. I can report that Ian Murray had a man sent up field at a corner!
