Hes right we do need to make the club more sustainable and that's the way to do it. The last lot were totally against this and that's why we ended up in the mess we were in. It's just ashame cause Neil dose a brillant job with the grass and has the pitch looking amazing.

The "last lot" were not totally against this at all. The club would have had to raise a huge sum of money outwith the various grants that are currently available. The amount of money raised from issuing shares has meant that it is now possible which is extremely good news.

Fair enough I apologise for my comment. But could this have not all be done by the last committee? I did hear a plastic pitch being mentioned but then nothing ever happened about it and it was never explained why

It was dependent on the Members agreeing to changing the legal entity and that process took a long time from writing to members/ obtaining approval and then  actually issuing shares. Before that the club was dependent on donations just to meet the wage bill let alone thinking about a plastic pitch.

Decent game today thought we did well our keeper looks good and no 5 and 7 looked decent

I was there yesterday, thought you guys looked very decent in the first half with your no2 a standout. The lead was deserved but Arbroath much more energetic as the game went on.

Also, well done to the club for the excellent hospitality. I believe you're looking at options to have more capacity for this at the ground. Service was first class and the group I was in will be doing it again this season.

Number 5 is a lad from Arbroath, plays for Brechin vics, thought he played well. Think you guys had 4 trialists from Brechin vics

Quite a few first team regulars away on holiday I believe,  so will be interesting to see what we are capable of with a full squad available. By all accounts the guys yesterday looked a lot sharper and fitter than last season so all bodes well so far.

No 5 was a stop gap draft.

The no 7 is a Brechin lad who has just been released from Dundee Utd - he is unattached and has been training with the team. I thought the front 3 were doing things our previous strikers were not and that was working back and making tackles on the half way line. They all have energy to burn and looked like a decent combo.

Also our keeper looks more assured than Jack - he came for things and made himself available for a pass.

Sparky was at Andy Robertsons wedding in Portugal, Bain - holiday, Cruickshank at Highland games with work. Hamish and Cooney not risked.

So far so promising.

And oh those penalties at half time, oh dear, oh dear but good banter.

Thought no7 did quite well, keeper impressed me too with his confidence and composure.  Decent run-out in the end, squad is coming together nicely which makes a change from the last few seasons.

Can any Brechin fan confirm if it's patg, for next week friendly against Aberdeen 

 

Despite usually attracting a healthy crowd pay at the gate is fine.  It's not normally segregated so i would doubt its 'ticket only'

I’m assuming the number 7 was Dom Naglik?

Is anyone else a bit concerned about the goalkeeping situation?  Presumably we signed Lenny Wilson to be the first choice and with the first league game next week he has been on the bench the last two games.

Is the trialist goalkeeper who has played in the friendlies really up to the standard that we need if we want to be challenging for the league?

Maybe was giving the trialist some game time to see if he is up to standard,which hopefully they will see he is not.He need to get fit too.On the upside when was the last time we were undefeated in pre season.
