See we have released smith and hobday
So we need a goalie next season wonder if we will be keeping the 2 goal keeping coaches that sit in the dugout every week seem to take a goalie in who is quite good then turn them in to being sh@@
Also getting rid of Ryan and blockley ??????... and keeping Jordan brown mmmmm
As for Blair Yule think we were linked with him a few years ago and every time I've seen him he has been really good but if he does sign for us sure we will turn him in to being sh@@ like we seem to do with a lot of players that come here
That's why I think we need a massive clear out of not just the players but the back room and coaching staff have got to go as well

What a rant. What is even worse is that I agree with it all. :lol:

At least we will have Gibson for entertainment value next year.

Jim seems to be letting go most of the better players, with the amount of players going out , we need to be signing players very soon.
to be honest I am not looking forward to the new season already. New set of players is going to take time to settle in. I know every season players come and go. We have got rid of a whole team.

Yes, this massive clear out is a strange business virtually starting from scratch unless all these players had given up on Peterhead and simply wanted out. I guess there are some advantages to almost starting with a clean sheet but Jim's selection of signings last year particularly the desperate late ones perhaps left much to be desired. Not sure what to make of it all but as Pfc100 said, I face next season with some trepidation. However, let's see the calibre of his next batch of signings and at least it will give us something to talk about. He may surprise us all!

What do the bookies know that we don't?
Peterhead are 7/4 favourites to win the league!

Pretty funny odds. Will we have a team . Blair Yule signed for Arbroath.is that an excuse for Jim this year again, he didn't get the signings he wanted? Not long till the start of the season and we have a lot of players to try and find

EE reported a couple of days a cooling of links with goalkeeper Mark Ridgers (https://www.eveningexpress.co.uk/fp/spo ... s-ridgers/)

He's signed for Caley.

Ex-Dundee United captain Sean Dillon has signed a 2-year contract at Montrose, with hints that we were among the clubs after his signature.

Seems to have gone a bit quiet now with a few positions still needing to be filled. Are we being linked with anyone else at the moment?

Also appears to have gone quiet on the club website and Facebook. Would be good if they could maybe try and generate some interest as I imagine a few people may need to be persuaded to return after last season. Maybe they could announce the results of the poll for the new club kit that seems to have been forgotten about or do some build up for the game against the Puddlestinkers in a week.

Good luck to Fraser Hobday. Jim must have changed his mind as he told huntly he didn't want him.

David McCracken signed from Falkirk.Just what we needed - an experienced centre half.
