    Agree. Should have started like that today and maybe started the new boy next week.

    Going to be a tough match. Arbroath looked decent and very competitive at this level.

    At it from the start.

    We are in fight for top now with Ayr. Win this one and stay top

    I would like to see Banks back on the bench next week as an option for later on in the game

    Who would be a manager eh!

    I think RN is between a rock and a hard place just now. We need Troy up to fitness and we all know our best team, and who is to say that Troy will not change our minds on that best team. As long as there are no injuries, i expect no changes for next week, although Stanton might find himself on the bench if he has had an off day.

    Cup game against Smokies , The 7 changes broke our rythm,Every game should be there to be challenged,Strongest team you can field should be put on the park every week.
    Good wins put feelgood factor through all the ranks
    Heres hoping that was just an unfortunate blip down in Ayr this week but they lads are no mugs and a well organised outfit
    Other teams will definetly drop points down there
    Heres to Saturday and hoping for a good response from the lads and lets tighten up things in midfield to compliment our back four
    and get a few goals too

    I think looking to much into it, I don't think the Arbroath game had any bearing on yesterday, maybe the stop start nature of the league in the early part of the campaign did if anything

    I'll be surprised if we don't beat them by 2 goals

    I just think that Butcher really doesnt want to play there - was the same the last time here was here too. Im sure he was even quoted the last time he was here saying that he didnt enjoy it. Definitely prefer him in defence though when we are short.

    Maybe on paper United should be beating teams like Ayr, Alloa and Arbroath 2-0, but in reality, these teams are well organised, have a game plan and on their day can probably give most of the teams in the premier league a run for their money.

    There will be few, if any, easy games in this league.

    Good post Clash and just to add to it,how FN ironic would it be to win the 4 derbies against the relegated team who should be our main rivals but fritter it all away versus teams that the McLean United would have blown away in 20 minutes?.Lets be honest here we knew fine well the league was not won after 4 games.
