    Just a thought, shouldn't all the goal differences add up to zero ?

    Seriously negative stuff Magnus, before a ball has been kicked in the 2023-24 league season, and with the transfer window still open for several more weeks.
    I'm sure more players will leave and others will be brought in before the transfer window closes. We have a manager and a recruitment team who are hugely experienced in wheeling and dealing at the "lower" end of the market, having already brought in talented (but unknown) players from Ireland and the Southern Hemisphere. We should trust them to sort things out for this season.

    And I think Arbroath will be familiar with Olusanya's 'strengths'.

    Let's hope that this "forward" can contribute as much as Curtis Main has done defensively at corners, free kicks, etc. A forward that offers nothing defensively would be a poor replacement for CM.

    Pre-season friendlies are training exercises. You can't read anything into them. 
    Last season we were beaten by Northampton Town in Paisley. How did our season go after that ?

    Regardless of where the blame lies for the screaming rises in mortgage rates I agree with FS that there should be no government intervention to help out those borrowers that now find themselves struggling financially. Nobody forced them into the level of debt they have, it was entirely their choice. And how many of those pleading for government help are also driving around in fancy BMWs, Audis, Mercedes etc that they can't actually afford, taken out on lease deals ? Why should the British public be responsible for coughing up more tax revenue for their benefit ? What about the millions of UK taxpayers who can't afford to climb onto the property ladder - how would they feel about paying someone else's mortgage for them ?

    In the pub this afternoon I heard this belter of a story about a horses bet from last Saturday by one of the pub regulars in the next-door Ladbrokes.
    He placed a £10 treble on 3 short(ish) priced favourites. The races were Ayr 2.59, Newmarket 3.17 and Ascot 4.20. He didn't name the horses on his betting slip, just the numbers.
    His first 2 picks won at 7-4 and 9-4. At this point he discovered that he had mistakenly written Ascot 3.40 (horse no 8) instead of 4.20. Remarkably the 3.40 was won by no 8 at 80-1. Even more remarkably the horse's odds at the time he placed his bet had been 125-1, which Ladbrokes honoured.
    By fluke he won £11,261.

    A new built in Renfrew (Deanfield) in 1983 was around 34K for a 3 bed semi with garage that would have been around 4 times my annual wages.
    Where i live now, a new build 3 bed semi without garage, is around 285K which would have been 7 times my annual wages if i was still working. 
    I think a lot of the problem is most people are now paying for things that didn't exist many years ago like mobile phones, internet, sky etc.
    Also think there is a lack of patient with young people wanting the big family house right away, instead of working their way up to it.
