Been thinking about what we still need over the past few days and, I reckon we’re probably 4 players off of our final squad - a CB, CM, ST. And before you say anything, yes I can count, I’m just assuming McDonald will be signing. I’m also assuming Robert will be gone.

My thinking is based on us lining up 3-5-2/5-3-2 for the season, so we’ve currently got…

Goalkeepers - Currie, Cantley

Centre Backs - Fordyce, Kerr, Watson (Walker can also cover there)

Wing backs - Wardrop, Quitongo, Walker, McDonald (Fordyce, Kerr and Watson could also cover there if absolutely necessary)

Centre Mids - Agnew, McCabe, Ritchie (McDonald and Kerr can also cover there)

Attacking Mids - Easton, Frizzell

Strikers - Gallagher, Allen, Pyott

In an ideal world, I’d like another striker on top of what I note above, but I just can’t see us running with 5 of them.

Being realistic, another centre back give us cover if one of the three is out, likewise at centre mid, as I wouldn’t want us relying on Ritchie alone and then a decent striker (if we can find one) to partner Gallagher.

McDonald gives you a bit of cover in various areas, so his signing would make sense.

If that all comes to pass, it’s a 20-man squad, which I’d be fine with - we had way too many wasted wages last year and as long as the 3 additions are of a good quality, I think we’re looking decent.

There looks to be an imbalance in the squad from midfield to front as we look tiny with Gal being the big guy. I echo the sentiments regarding a striker but  he needs to be able to provide an aerial threat a la Jimmy Lister!

Don’t know if it’s just me but this must be the worst quality stream I’ve ever watched. It feels like I’m watching it through some dodgy streaming site.

 

From what I can see, Easton looks a real threat. The trialist (number 11) looks decent so far as well. Any ideas who it is?

Trialist has just been subbed and i would doubt he will be seen again. Utter gash!

Is McDonald the blonde trialist wearing I think number 15 in midfield? Whoever he is I think he's looked really good since he came on

Yeah that’s him. I thought he looked decent, very energetic and good at driving forward, not so good around the box but I guess that makes sense if he was a full-back before this. 

Jordan Allan looked very lively when he came on and made a big difference. It was a brilliant finish for his goal, I’m still not convinced he’s good enough to start every week but I can see why Murray signed him. 

I wasn’t convinced by the trialist striker at all. Seemed to struggle with simple passes and controlling the ball and when he did get through on goal he didn’t do much with it. The centre back who came on was fine, didn’t really have too much to do but worth another look tomorrow.

He was dreadful. At least he had the decency to show how dreadful he was before we try to sign him and not put in the best display of his life never to be repeated.

Looking at the pictures from the game no 11 could be Isaac Layne..    The no 5 looks familiar as well...

Who was the Trialist goalie for Cumbernauld Colts? The commentator said he’s familiar to Airdrie fans. I initially thought it was David Hutton by that comment, but he didn’t look like him. 

Reece Willisoni think
