  1. Yeah. That be great. I feel we always seem it have average Scottish height midfielders. Never a tall forward or defender. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  2. Me too as Dorman was a great find. At the time as well a link up would have been good as MLS was really a league where people went to retire and cash in a bit. It wasn't as well respected. Now the money in it players are going to it earlier in their careers. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  3. My digging about isn't great, so does anyone know who we have partnerships with? The mob in New Zealand and anyone else? I thought there was some other mob in Australia. Do we have one on North America? Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  4. Is this because the professional strikers we seem to bring in seem to be shite at taking a man on and scoring, so we are looking to see if we can get this from amateurs? 100% right. I get it initially he thought with using the full budget at the start to get "quality" players in he thought the initial squad would change for top 6. I thought last season we changed shape depending on the opponent. Defensively we were alright and just needed to look at attack options. He has made us 1 dimensional with this system, which teams have found us out. We also used to play it on the Deck more and out from the back last season, but not this season. Formation has changed, but at the back the only new player is Dunne. Surely we could still play out from the back as it worked before? With using all his budget early on It has now left us hanging as we need people to leave to free up any cash. The fringe players have no stage to show any potential teams what they could do for them too. Erwin we need to leave to get someone in, but no f**ker sees what he can do. Only see at the warm up at most?! How are you supposed to get rid of that? Got to say defence signings have been good. Jim can spot a good player there. Say same to an extent with midfield with Jamie and Ronan... But apart from Brophy his strikers have been sub par at best. I keep doing this and ramble, but it's frustrating. I like Goodwin. I think the 3 at the back could work and can at times, but also need plan B, which we don't have and we need pace, creativity and goals. Or maybe if had creativity then that would lead to goals.

  5. To score some goals? To win some games... Especially at home? Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  6. That's how I feel. I can't remember. If he was fit I think he could do a turn for us. Sadly if he was fit he would be in the Aberdeen team. Do we have a decent physio? I ask as Dunne hasn't been out as much as I thought he might after he signed from Motherwell. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  7. I'm getting impatient (and I know is shouldn't), but I really want us to address sooner rather than later the real lack of pace. This would make me feel easier with how things are as it's is really really missing. You can see JG wanted to address it as he was wanting o'halloran during the summer, who has pace. This was after the likes of Connolly was going as I'm sure he was looking for higher wage and more game time from down south. Guess players with Pace, especially with a lot of teams now adopting some for of this 3-4-3 or 3-4-2-1 type stuff are looking for fast players to play wide. If Kennedy was fit, did he have pace?

  8. I am just trying to get in the head of Jim and what they could add and how they could fit in. If he is sticking to this system, do you think they would work in a 3-4-2-1? With their pace since we miss out the midfield with the current tactics? The 2 behind the striker sitting wider adding in the pace we need, but also being the players the long ball is going to, so they can use their pace to get onto these balls? This would also allow the striker to actually stay more central as at the moment they are dragged out wide constantly. This could potentially allow the wing backs to overlap? Allow Tanser to get his crosses in? This will look shite while trying to explain. Below I have taken out McGrath as could be away (and wouldn't you want to if missing the midfield out.) -----------------Alnwick------------------ Fraser - Shaughnessy - Dunne Millar -- Power - Ronan -- Tanser ------Wright --------------- Kennedy -------------------Brophy------------------- This would allow the striker to play as a target man in the middle. If long diagonal ball, this allows the pace to run on to them. On the kick out with the wing backs playing so high this would then look like Millar------------------------------- Tanser --------Wright-----------------Kennedy -------------------Brophy----------------- The tactic to kick up to Tanser to head on is ok, but we need more options if this is the system. Again just trying to see how the pace could work and if we are missing the middle out. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  9. I feel we have given maybe higher wages this season that all budget is currently locked in on current players. We need them to leave to get players in. Also with the lack of game time and visibility of what they can do, who would take a punt on taking Erwin or Dennis off our hands knowing what they could offer their teams? I'm worried that the teams in the bottom half of the table with us all have someone who seems to be able to bank roll them potentially out of their issues and we don't. If McGrath goes we need it sooner so we can get in some creativity and pace that we really really need. The next focus needs to then be to get rid of the forward deadwood and get in someone that can make a difference. I thought when he first signed Main might do a turn as looked to trouble defenders. Sadly at times when he gets man handled, he is so strong he gets f**k all for it. After all the game time, he isn't the answer. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  10. I just live in hope we can find someone who can score goals that plays up front. [emoji1787] Need rid of Main, Dennis and Erwin. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  11. Read this morning that Beerschot are looking to offload Shankland. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-transfer-news/lawrence-shankland-puts-spfl-clubs-25889060 Would people think we should take another chance on him? Would he be better or worse than the likes of Main, Dennis or Erwin? Did he play for Utd this season that would mean he couldn't play for any other Scottish club this season apart from them as will have already played for 2 clubs already?

  12. Damn shame as he has a bright future. Ball going through him is when we have played well. I was just living in hope. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  13. Cheers for that. Couldn't remember. Could be he wants to sort that position out asap in case. Kinda like signing Kiltie as a replacement for McGrath (though I don't see that comparison now). Anyone know if Ronan was a loan to buy as that would be great ( if we had decent money) [emoji1787] Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  14. I'm sure I read on the signing of Power that he was more of a number 8 than a number 6. Is it maybe looking at playing Gogic as the 6? Also is power out of contract this summer and JM wanted Gogic way before power ever signed? Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  15. Players JG has openly tried to chase or admired were Gogic and Kennedy. I also thought he was an admirer of Hakeem Odoffin when he was at Accies as he could play defensive mid and CB. Though he then signed for Rotherham. Personally I would take them all if we could and if they were all fit: Kennedy would add width and pace we need. Gogic is same as Goodwin was when he was playing i feel. We have missed that. Odoffin would allow to not be 3 at the back and allow to go 4 at the back and in attack would allow him to make it a back 3 if need be. Make the formation a bit more fluid. Just need someone who offers something different upfront as well. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
