Forfar Athletic New Manager

Recommended Posts

Let's try again.....Stubbs - McIntyre - Yogi Hughes....??
Do you think we could afford any of those?

Whoever takes over has a serious job to do during January, finding at least 3 midfielders up to the task.

Getting high earning imposters like Tapping, Forbes, Irvine and Kirkpatrick either playing half decently or off the books will not be easy.

I have no idea but we need more than 3 midfielders, Goalkeeper, LB, Striker to name a few.

Was going to add a striker and a LB to the list also.

See the club are saying they hope to announce a new manager in the next 24 hours.

Good luck finding a better keeper at this level than McCallum. Totally laughable to be talking of binning him after a couple of mistakes.

Nobody said anything about binning him, we need a strong 2nd choice keeper to put pressure on him-keep him on his toes. By far the best keeper in the league up to 3 weeks ago but no doubt his form-confidence has dipped.

He's never had any real competition in three years and been brilliant. Be a waste of a good wage.

What happens if he gets injured - sent off - form dips, of course we need a decent back up!

Appointment by monday evening. 

Aitken and Booth being there on Saturday suggests that either they were the last two being interviewed, or it was down to those two.

Very true. 

 

I do know for a fact that Foxy has been close to coming back at least once.

This. The other season we ran out of goalies due to the ineptitude of the then manger and Chief Exec, we finished up playing a midfielder in goal, against Ayr in a crunch match....they went on to win the league. Get yersel a backup goalie, .................  or................ a Jiner wi' abig bag onails and some flaring boards.

The playing staff we have should be able to have a decent stab at this league, based on the standard this season.

Our recent performances however have been v.poor, attitudes have really been called into question.

Whoever is appointed team manager has a big job on his hands.

FAFC has long had a good reputation for how they look after their players, it is up to these players, hopefully with good leadership, to now step up and deliver.
