Fan blog: Air­drieo­ni­ans Is squad good enough for pass­ing style?

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Boxing -

Once again it was the small trav­el­ling band go­ing home happy as Forfar piled on more mis­ery for the hardy peren­ni­als in the home area.

De­spite one change in per­son­nel and a slightly dif­fer­ent at­tack, our home form con­tin­ues to frus­trate the fans who had pre-sea­son op­ti­mism.

The first half was marginally bet­ter than last week with Kyle Wilkie hav­ing a great chance to find the break­through.

This is a tight league but we re­main cor­rectly in the bot­tom zone as other sides have no fear of play­ing us.

Our hopes of edg­ing ahead van­ished as Forfar took com­plete con­trol.

John Baird hit a late cracker as the ex-Di­a­mond scor­ing pat­tern con­tin­ues.

The man of the match award went to our goal­keeper, David Hut­ton.

Re­cently he has stood be­tween us and much heav­ier de­feats.

I be­gin to won­der if Sean Crighton was scarred by that sea­son at Brechin as our de­fence leaks goals.

The stats also show we had no shots on tar­get as our at­tack­ing moves fiz­zled out. The prom­ise of a con­fi­dent pass­ing game is well meant but can this squad de­liver it?

Ian Mur­ray has much work to do to turn around Stephen Find­lay’s fail­ing fel­lows.
