If Partick really wanted him we'd have no chance of keeping him.

Roberts is a good signing for you lads, I was really hoping we'd go for him - but unfortunately we appear to be having our usual pre-season crisis.

Let’s not kid ourselves, it all comes down to money. If he gets a better deal elsewhere he’ll be off.

Of course - that's the way it is at this level and if he does go, good luck to him.  I just hope that he has a decent job outside football and part-time suits him.

What are you on about?  Two cracking goals from outside the box from young Roberts...the first from about 25 yards with his left foot and the second from about 35 yards with his right.  How many Airdrie players have you seen do that last season?

I've never seen the boy play before so can't really comment but he's well thought of by the QP fans and Colin Paterson, whose opinion I always value, said he was one to watch. Hope he does well. Especially because some of his family are Airdrie fans and I can't be bothered with the grief on here and Facebook if he's shite and his family take exception to us saying so :lol:

As for the other players, I can't see any of the 16-18-year-olds featuring in the first team any time soon unless they're exceptional in which case we should play them. They're still young enough to be playing youth football, and to me anyway, it looks like we've signed them up as long term prospects with an idea of them progressing to the first team in the future rather than right now. But I guess they'll get to train with the first team and play in the reserves (assuming we're running a reserve team again this year?).  

The four reserve players too, I assume, have been signed to play in the reserves and/or flesh out the first team squad which I'm fine with really ( and which they've all been doing already). If they're all going to be starting XI regulars then yes I'll start to worry but Leighton has come into the first team before and done okay. Barrowman is meant to be a highly rated prospect and I don't know a lot about Ross and Pyott but they've both played in the juniors so at least have some level of first-team experience.

Roberts is a cracking player, potential to be a star in league 1. Fantastic energy and ability on the ball, id imagine he’ll be well liked

As I have said previously the Club seem to have a definite plan. The trickiest bit is signing experienced good players which definitely will take time. I will be very surprised if the present signings are seen as immediate first team players apart from Roberts. It is entirely possible that the whole thing will be a disaster but now is not the time to pass judgement. Wait till the first team signings are made.

On a completely separate point, with Cove winning the battle of "the wee Rangers" at the weekend, Berwick become the third of the 16 teams that voted against our league status in 2002 to lose theirs.  At this rate all 16 will be gone by around 2120...

Who were the teams that did out of curiosity?

Was impressed by his strikes ,as you say not many of the present squad  would be capable.

Still, holding grudges over it for 20 years and being gleeful when clubs get relegated is not a good look.

Where have you been?  Bitterness, grudges and gloating at the misfortune of other teams is  at least half of what football is all about.

Tell you what - when every P&B poster agrees to stop posting the "you are the bankies in disguise" and similar boring  jibes we will stop holding grudges and being gleeful when clubs get relegated, deal??

I prefer to rise above childish schadenfreude.

Except when it's Ayr.
