  1. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    So how much more did AJ being paid off with a two year deal cost compared to having a one year deal? I very much doubt that he’s getting an extra years garden leave. Having so many players on a 1 year deal makes stability an issue as we discovered in the summer. Hindsight is also an abundant thing that everyone is blessed with, it’s foresight that’s the rarer commodity. Were you protesting from the roof tops when the two year contract was handed out, because the way I remember it, there was very little negative reception when the extension was announced on the back of being unlucky in the play off. Can’t believe half the stuff I’m reading on here. I thought Higgy put in a decent shift yesterday and Stevie’s interviews are honest, open assessments and welcomingly don’t have “obviously” every second sentence. Yesterday, we looked in control of the game until the sending off (the clear cut goal scoring opportunity was debatable given there was another defender ready to intercept), then with 10 men I thought we had our best spell until the penalty. Individual errors cost us dearly and the wide margin in the score line will look bad in the history books but was not the entire picture. Calling Stevie “a coward” for playing one up top is just ludicrous given that we were getting forward and midfielders were working hard to get into advanced positions to support - this caused Rovers problems in that they were finding it difficult to pick them up. That was until we went behind and had to chase the game. I was hurting last night - it was almost like grieving, but one awful result does not a managerial tenure make. Stevie makes a good point about mental toughness and if he can do a bit of psychology about how to deal with setbacks after being on top (which is a major trait currently) it can only benefit them. Priority though is a new face up front and I think Smith should have been given a start yesterday, and I’d also be giving Martin a shot in defence as his more recent appearances were showing him to be a decent defender. With any budget freed from the loss of the loaners from Hearts, a central defender (experienced with leadership qualities) and striker (one with physicality and presence) should be at the forefront for Stevie. An aside about players coming over to show appreciation for support, if any “fan” thinks this is patronising or it is a good opportunity to have a go, then they’re not thinking clearly. I don’t think there was a player who “wasn’t trying” yesterday. We were severely punished by two, albeit avoidable, mistakes. If Stevie had not changed it to chase the tie, we’d probably have not lost the third, but there was nothing to gain in keeping the score line respectable in a cup tie. TLDR version Give Stevie a chance at least.
  2. Raith Rovers vs Dunfermline Athletic

    Cowdenbeath fans coming in for a dig, that’s how bad it’s got.
  3. Raith Rovers vs Dunfermline Athletic

    Remember you need to score before you have Big Nat do his other PARty trick.
  4. Raith Rovers vs Dunfermline Athletic

    Dropped by Stark's on a spying mission today and it looked like a training session was going on, hard to tell, but they're taking this serious as they have the sign up.

    Honestly, never heard of him, and his pic didn’t help either.
  7. Dundee United v Dunfermline

    Well did he give it big licks and reveal an “I did it for Daddy” T shirt?
  8. Dundee United v Dunfermline

    They heard you were visiting with your engorgement and made some room? Assume you’re seated in 4th row?
  9. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    This has to go down as one of those bits of well known general knowledge that somehow manages to evade you until you read it in a forum. I’d honestly no idea who this was until I Googled it. I’ve never watched much wrestling (watched a little of UK stuff on Saturday afternoons after Airwolf) but quickly realised it was staged bullshit, and just a crap pantomime. I’ve heard of various wrestling stars over the years mentioned in mainstream but, nope, Ric, I got nothing.
  10. Dundee United v Dunfermline

    It’s surely what he does after we’re 2-0 up at half time that matters?
  11. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Not sure if you can just decide to retire without honouring your contract? Probably due compensation just as would be required in a transfer?
  12. Raith Rovers v Them

    Enjoy Kirkcaldyonians..
  13. Dundee United v Dunfermline

    This would work for me. It will be interesting to see who Crawford picks given he's seen them for six months. It would be good if the support turns out in numbers for this one. Have the United fans started to return yet, because the home end was looking helluva sparse at the start of the season?

    Does Cardle have a release clause if he gets offered a coaching role elsewhere?
  15. Dundee United v Dunfermline

    This is just a second account for japery and tomfoolery. When he's sensible he posts as Dee Man so the rumour goes.
