Craig Wighton

Recommended Posts

Think it might do the lad good if he gets some confidence back into his football.

If he starts banging them in for Arbroath however it will bring up some painful questions as to what is so wrong at EEP.

It's also something in itself that Dick can see a striker in him that Yogi can't.

Dare say it would suit Wighton too, if he does help them get promoted and we get relegated he will surely be released or have a release clause.

I don't think it's that Yogi can't see a striker in him, it's more that he feels his style doesn't suit what we're trying to do. McCann runs all day and is quite physical but looks poor a lot because we have nobody winning the second balls. 

Personally, I think we're over complicating things quite a bit. For me, Wighton is our best finisher, but can appear 'lazy' (he's not) but he needs the right partner and that isn't Todorov, who can't seem to play with either him or O'Hara, and I'm not sure he's suited to playing with McCann either. I think we need to really simplify what we're doing and get balls in behind the full backs for Dow/Thomas/Lawless to latch onto the first or second balls and get them down the channels with Edwards and Comrie overlapping and get some ammunition into the box for Wighton and O'Hara/McCann to get on the end of. 

This isn't rocket science, it's about playing with pace and bravery and stop thinking about the negative side of defending with a shape that sits in and defend on the front foot. Let's put teams under the pressure they put on us. This is how we beat Inverness at home doing exactly this, but we've not done it since!

Love the thought that Dick is utterly taking the ****. Our problem isnt Wighton its our bloody system and midfield. We have 3 proven strikers who can score at this level

In my opinion Wighton needs to be playing for us. Not a rival in the same league. He can score goals, Yogi just needs to set us up to enhance his chances of scoring.

Dick will use him properly and get the best out of him.

I hope Arbroath go on and win the league,still an ignorance towards Dick in Scottish football which is crazy.

Wighton is our best striker. If we were in our current position and we were linked with a striker with Wightons record we would be quite chuffed, the fact he can't get into the team is baffling.

Ok Arbroath aren't a relegation rival but him going would feel very much like our Lewis vaughan to dumbarton moment. 

Outed as a wee teamer?

If its on loan he'll still be with us days they don't train.

It's crazy to think we are bottom of the league and could be loaning our best finisher to Arbroath for their title challenge.

Utterly mental to even consider letting Wighton go. He should be starting.

Yes our best finisher in the team and looks like he will be out the door. I thought it was crazy that we let big Vytas go,as soon as it was announced that he had left yogi had a number of clubs on the phone asking about him.
