The Brechin City 2019/20 Thread

How bad are the 2 outfield subs that the 45 year old gaffer, who hasn't played for 10 years, is starting himself over them?
One was a keeper, the other injured.

How was Barry Smith? Has he broke the record for your oldest ever player?

Be nice at the start of July for the club to announce we are ready for the start of the new season with all players in place. Seems every season we are way behind every other team in terms of sorting a squad of players out. And Barry Smith playing today FFS!


If Watt and McLaughlin were available today it wouldn’t really have been an issue. Absolutely ridiculous that international clearance isn’t through yet. They both signed what must have been over a month ago.

Thought we didint play that badly today there were definitely a couple of positives to take from the game.It looked like we were massively lacking up .Scott reekie looks like a good find thought he played pretty well the club need to get the fingers out there arse this week and get the lack of players situatuation sorted it's a joke that we had to start Barry Smith today.

According to the teamsheet you had Olly Hamilton, Fionn McLeod Kay and Paddy O'Neill on the bench. Unless it was a mistake that's 2 outfield subs and a goalie.
The goalie was number 12 which meant he could play in or out of goal. Had he been 21 he can only play in goal. Other two injured.

Was all for trialists being allowed to play in this cup until today

 

Hopefully see more managers take to the pitch

I think Barry was trying to make a point about  the amateurish rules that the SPFL  impose regarding smaller clubs  not being allowed to play trialists .  Get it right up you Cockwomble and all the bigger clubs who believe in self preservation. 

Well played today Barry BTW.  You had Dale Hilson on his arse a few times . :lol::lol:

What is happening at Brechin? Is there a financial issue that’s led to the lack of signings?

We have 17 signed . 6 were unavailable today. 

When you are starting from scratch it takes time to assemble a full squad.   We are getting there though. 

Being the lower league club we had no expectations about progressing in this cup and are basically treating these games as pre season warm ups.

Not a good start getting beat fae the bridie munchers,it will take time for all the players to gel together so willing to give Smith the time to do this,but how long do we give them.

All the other part timers including HL and LL sides seem to have got sides no problem apart from Brechin and Dumbarton. Cup has always been no trialists so everyone knows the score.

Have these guys come from England? We had 2 sign for us that have had to be played as trialists for pre-season. Seems they might be dragging their heels over the summer. Wonder if there’s any system to complain about other FA’s?
