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