  1. Is Millar injured? Was he not brought in as a packet wingback? Why is Flynn ahead of him, but seeming like his legs are gone. Football brain still there, but 2 yards off it. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  2. He annoys me. Apparently got loads of pace, but never see him use it. You would hope he could play on 4he shoulder and look for a through ball to blast past, but instead I have seen him stand and wait to get the ball, stop it dead to try take his man on, when he can't as everyone and their granny knows he is looking to cut in on his right. One of the most frustrating players to wear a saints top. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks. The reason I added in the height of the potential players is the fact I feel at times the team has been pretty small and from what I remember of Robo is he favours physical, athletic players over ability. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  4. He is I'm sure. I have a lot of time to think and got the following In contract for 22/23: 1. D. Lyness - 29yo - GK 2. M. Fraser - 27yo - CB/RB 3. J. Shaughnessy - 28yo - CB 4. C. Dunne - 28yo - CB 5. R. Tait - 31yo - RWB 6. S. Tanser - 26yo - LWB 7. E. Erhahon - 20yo - CM 8. J. Henderson - 19yo - RM 9. G. Kiltie - 24yo - CAM 10. C. Main - 29yo - ST 11. E. Brophy - 25yo - ST 12. A. Greive - 22yo - ST Contract ending: 1. J. Alnwick - 28yo - GK 2. C. McCarthy - 23yo - CB 3. A. Power - 33yo - CDM 4. R. Flynn - 32yo - CM 5. M. Millar - 24yo - RWB Loan ends: 1. C. Ronan - 23yo - CM 2. J. Jones - 26yo - LW 3. A. Gogić - 27yo - CDM Alleged PCAs: 1. Trevor Carson - 33yo - GK - 6'0" 2. Mark O'Hara - 25yo - CDM/CM/CB/RB - 6'1" 3. Keanu Baccus - 23yo - CM/CDM - 5'9" Potential rumoured players: 1. Reghan Tumilty - 25yo - RB/RWB - 5'10" 2. Reece McAlear - 20yo - CM - 6'1" 3. Steven Davis - 37yo - CM - 5'8" 4. Jonah Ayunga - 24yo - RW/ST - - 6'1" So that's like a squad we had of like 20 first team players (due to Goodwin farming out all the young players). Of the ones who's contracts are ending and loans finishing, of that 20 we are potentially losing 8 (if none of the out of contract folks sign on again). That will leave us with 12 first team players still in contact staying (maybe). Robo has come out and said there are 4 already signed. This would take the count up from 12 to 16. He is then said in the daily record article he would like 2 or 3 more. That would then take us up to 19. That's less than we have currently in the squad. In his time at Morcambe and Motherwell he operated with a squad size of between 26 and 29. Does that mean that the remaining spaces would be youths or would it be a mix of youth and loans?

  5. Reece McAlear I believe. Is he not on loan from Norwich at ICT? Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  6. Hope it's shite. We need him next season to be playing more. What we have seen of him, i don't think he looks out of place. What I have seen of Aberdeen's Ramsay I didn't think much of him, but here we are seeing things coming out Liverpool and Leeds Talkin £4m. This article is saying 6 figures for Reid. We need to be integrating the academy players more, trying to get them on longer deals and trying to make more money like rival teams like Aberdeen, who are currently below us.

  7. Totally. At one point yesterday he held 2 people off and away from the ball. Honestly he is deceivingly strong. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  8. FTOF on P&B saying we are linked to Jonah Ayunga from Morecambe. Thought I read somewhere that there are a fair few at Morecambe being made available, though under contract. Wondered how many we would be linked to: Ryan Delaney - CB Anthony O'Connor - CB Ryan Cooney - RB Ryan McLaughlin - RB/RWB Connor Pye - LB Shane McLoughlin - CM/RWB Jonah Ayunga - RW/ST Wes McDonald - RW/LW Jon Obika - ST Also players that are there and put of contract this summer: Greg Leigh - LWB/LB Rhys Bennett - CB Aaron Wildig - CM Arthur Gnahoua - LW/RW/ST Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  9. I have been thinking to the formation that Robo played Vs the Fakes and what I find interesting is that Jim tried to do something similar at the start of the season against Hearts. He tried to play the 3 at the back and it didnt work. He tried to play with wingbacks and it felt narrow and didn't work. He tried to play with 2 "strikers" and it didn't work. The difference between Jim and Robo setting up this way was Jim tried to play with just Power sitting deeper and play with both McGrath and Kiltie. This is where I feel it broke down. Jim went with: Alnwick Fraser - Shaunghessy - Dunne Tait - McGrath - Power - Tanser Kiltie Main - Brophy Robo went with: Alnwick Fraser - Shaunghessy - McCarthy Tait - Gogic - Ronan - Tanser Kiltie Main - Greive I feel Gogic far better at breaking down play etc to Power. Also, Ronan is a great player. I feel he can play box to box really well. If this is one of the formations Robo wants to use moving forward (as well as him liking 433) I hope he brings in balanced players for these rather than Jim bringing in player for 1 formation that didn't work. I hope we could get Gogic to stay. I hope that O'Hara or Baccus are box to box. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  10. I'd say last season for the fakes I didn't think Tanser was a good defender, but when we switched to a back 4 I didn't think he was terrible at left back. Could depend how you play Rooney. Robo does love more tall, athletic and physical players from his time at 'Well. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  11. Could you see us going in for the likes of Shaun Rooney as he is out of contract with the fakes instead to play the right wing back big lump role? Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  12. Would love to keep him. Does all the things that are not glamorous, but needed in games. Cuts out play really well. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  13. With that, then depending on formations they have: LB/LWB Tanser and Tait RB/RWB Tait, Fraser, Finlayson CB Dunne, Shaunghessy, Fraser, Finlayson Is this enough cover for injuries or suspensions? Certainly going to be interesting. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  14. My son is Fraser's number 1 fan. He would be gutted. I like Fraser, I don't think he is that bad. A lot of our players have short comings. He is being played now, is this because Dunne is injured? Or if we brought in this right back, would Fraser be kept as the squad player that can fill in at CB and Right back? Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  15. I was worried when we signed him as the fakes fans were all like he can't defend. I found he wasn't bad when we switched to the back 4 and thought that a lot of Fakes fans know f**k all about football. I have liked him as a player, but was worried when there were a few games he wasn't starting over the likes of Tait, but feel it was from injury or covid rather than not being rated, but I'm not sure. Either way I'm glad he is back. My son's favourite players are Fraser and Tanser. He will be delighted. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  16. Feels a bit weird not playing with wingers. When the season started and we had the 3 at the back the wingbacks made it feel super narrow up the pitch. I guess at the time though we tried to play then Kiltie and McGrath too, which didn't work. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  17. I didn't get to see the game. What was the formation he went with? Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  18. Did Jim not say before it would be in the region of 500k to get him? Do Aberdeen have that to hand? Should they not save that money to pay off Jim as the fans are not to keen on him. [emoji1787] Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  19. 100% percent. I don't see a footballer there at this level at all. Doesn't track his man, mile off the pace, always too long on the ball and his passing with that is honking. This season, apart from Ronan, the midfield has been poor. It's good that most are away out of contract or loan ending as the midfield needs someone new blood. Need people that can play on the ball too. Too many can't take the ball anywhere. Its like netball but with their feet. Jay is the only one that comes on and takes a man on.

  20. All good, but was his contact not until 2023 Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  21. I would hope they have pace and can take a man on... Or score goals. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  22. I'm sure I read somewhere either here or P&B that this is something that Robo looks for in players. It's more about their physicality and speed and not their football skills. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  23. Why is voting now? Is it because we probably won't score goals, let alone good goals in the remaining games? Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  24. Country have turned the season around. It annoys me how other teams in the time in the top flight have finished top 6 and we can't. The likes of county, Killie, livi etc. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
  25. Wow... Just wow! I'm thinking McCarthy thinks he can get a better gig down south. [emoji1787] 100% I've wondered this. Can try it as he is at least contracted for next season. Try like Dunne, Joe, Fraser, Tait. This at least is a lineup all here until the end of 2023. As you say. Big, quick, powerful. Sometimes caught out ,but has the pace others don't to sort it out. His long balls are shite. I think to myself that Robo could find cover fine as he brought Mugabi to Motherwell and he is a cracking defender. He has all Dunne has and more. I'd hope he would be able to find someone similar for us to replace Dunne. Sent from my IN2023 using Tapatalk
