  1. Modern Hall of Famers

    Following Arsenal's pathetic capitulation at Bournemouth yesterday, Jamie Redknapp made the assertion that none of the current team would ever be inducted into the Hall of Fame. It got me thinking; how many Dunfermline players in the last 20 years will be seen as club legends? For the Pars, I think guys like Stevie Crawford, Andy Tod and Andrius Skerla have already been recognised by the club. Of the current crop, Joe Cardle would probably be the only credible shout. I think football fans are always likely to get misty-eyed and nostalgic about players of the past but we're more critical of modern stars. With that in mind, who from your team over the past two decades would be a realistic HoF contender?
  2. Was certain there was a thread for this but can't find it anywhere...Anyway, confirmation that any replay will take place on Tuesday 30th January. Hopefully this isn't required as it means our fixtures would look like this: Jan 20th - Morton (H) Jan 26th - St Mirren (H) Jan 30th - Morton (A) Feb 2nd - Morton (A) Ew.
  3. Brechin City have only picked up three points so far this season, with home draws against Livingston, Falkirk and Dundee United. 15 games in and they're yet to win a game, despite some decent performances at times. Who do you think will be the first team to suffer defeat against Darren Dods' side? Their next six fixtures: Dec 9th St Mirren (H) Dec 16th Falkirk (A) Dec 23rd Dunfermline (A) Dec 30th Inverness (H) Jan 2nd Dundee United (A) Jan 6th Morton (H) My pessimistic side says they'll be giving us a shitty Christmas present on the 23rd
  4. Dunfermline vs Greenock Morton - Sat 20th Jan

    You're not kidding. He's scored two goals against the mighty Dunfermline Athletic; a fifth of his entire career total!
  5. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Aird for Cardle is a fairly simple decision for St Mirren game? I usually love the Scottish Cup but I'm less than enthusiastic for Saturday's game. What a shitey draw...we better win.
  6. Did the exciting signing that was promised ever come through? Haven't heard anything.
  7. Who will be Brechin's first?

    I wonder how Brechin will respond, now their promotion hopes seem to have been dashed?
  8. Dunfermline v Dundee Utd. Sat. 13th Jan '18

    Falkirk scoring six and United conceding six was a total freak. You can't base your tactics off one game instead of the whole season. Unless you're suggesting nobody else all season has tried to press United.
  9. Pish Adverts

    After seeing the abortion that is the Go Compare guy has returned to TV screens, got me thinking about adverts that make you want to hurl a brick through your telly. BetVictor also high on the list. Hate that c**t.
  10. Gretna - Living (and dying) the Dream

    Next summer will mark 10 years since the original Gretna were liquidated*. They fit an incredible amount of drama into a very small stretch of time, playing in all four divisions and nearly winning the Scottish Cup in 2006. Obviously, they were not very popular with other clubs, who felt they were buying success and had a totally unsustainable business model. Was looking to get any stories, clips, photos etc of Gretna's time in the Scottish leagues and how people feel about their brief rise and fall. I started a thread about Morton's infamous collapse of 03/04 earlier this year and we got some fantastic posts and stories so hoping for something similar. *Gretna 2008 are obviously playing in the Lowland League now but aren't doing a Rangers and pretending it's the same club.
  11. Dunfermline vs Greenock Morton - Sat 20th Jan

    Would be an absolute minter if we lost this one. Morton have beaten one decent side since September and we're playing alright again. Still expect to lose a replay. Would start Ryan and maybe Higgy.
  12. Morton v Falkirk

    Love how everyone is just accepting the story about Loy without question.
  13. Dunfermline v Dundee Utd. Sat. 13th Jan '18

    Fair enough. I wasn't spitting with rage like everyone else but I was totally baffled.
  14. the party's at your patch, so suck it up

    Honestly no idea what you're talking about. Was a great goal. Fantastic day at Cappielow. Definitely one of my favourite away days. Seeing the away end from the train was orgasmic.
  15. Dunfermline v Dundee Utd. Sat. 13th Jan '18

    Can honestly say I can't remember ever seeing a guy receiving treatment and not having to go over to the touchline. I'll bow to your knowledge of the rules though as I have no clue.
  16. Dunfermline v Dundee Utd. Sat. 13th Jan '18

    The fans in the NW are great at building an atmosphere. They follow the club most weeks, provide great support and tend to be quite funny. "Takes it up the arse" is rancid. So is calling a guy a "fairy" or a "poof"
  17. Champions elect V Playoff chasing Ayr

    Good crowd and a result that keep things interesting in the title race. Think it'll end up being very tight. McCall is a well established WUM. Ayr fans have always loved Adams, despite him having no visible talent.
  18. Darts...

    Fair fucking play, that was an absolute belter of a semi-final.
  19. Morton are closer to 3rd than 9th.
  20. Club name

    Best gimmick poster in ages. He's reeling them all in.
  21. Off yer (Dumbarton)Rockers! V League Leaders

    You'll have to collapse totally to not win the league now. United haven't gone but they're nowhere near good enough at the minute.
  22. Morton v Falkirk

    Morton are shite.
  23. Dunfermline v Dundee Utd. Sat. 13th Jan '18

    Should have won that. Plenty of chances and only some good saves and poor finishing denied us the three points. McManus was excellent, just missing a goal or two. Hardly any failures in our team though. It wasn't a terrific performance but they all worked their socks off. We now have 10/12 points from the last four matches and that's three straight clean sheets. Still wish AJ would make subs quicker. Why even bother bringing on Ryan and Higgy with five mins left? First time all season I've thought United wouldn't win the league. They were really poor, although they clearly came to nick a 1-0 so they won't be too disappointed. Chuck everyone singing that "up the arse" song. It's not clever or funny, just makes us look awful.
