    Basically for the last couple of seasons with us , a striker is just someone to fill a jersey as he is put up front on his own to try and cope with aimless high balls punted at him.

    If he is surplus we could always take Doc on loan .

    Waiting patiently for news of our first signing. Obviously no one is in any rush as has been the case in the last few seasons . Let's hope we are not left panic signing the dregs again . I thought by the statement put out that they were desperate for season ticket sales . Lack of activity and information does little to encourage folk to buy one. Just saying !

    Will you guys be keeping the messiah ? The similarities are frightening .

    Great servant to our club. A solid pro who will give you everything ........as long as you have someone who knows how to play him. He was hampered by injury these past couple of seasons too . If he stays fit he will be a good signing. I am a bit shocked that given his service to our club he was only given a line of recognition in the rambling club statement. Hopefully our media team are working on a more fitting farewell for Pabs. I will take the opportunity here to thank him for his loyalty to the club . He has been one of our most consistent performers throughout his time here. It was always a pleasure chatting with him and his family who attended games home and away. A real gentleman who will be quite a loss to the club . I wish him well in the future but obviously not when he plays us !

    Heard that Paddy is staying .
  9. Can't really see that . Can you ?
  10. Playoff Final - Raith v Queens / Queens v Raith

    As long as Dobbie is playing you should be home and dry.
  11. Mon the Queens and Stephen Dobbie.
  12. That is the way things should be . The two rubbish teams from League one go down and the two best teams from league 2 promoted.

    When Smith came in we were in 6th . He told us he knew where the problems lay and that changes would be made accordingly and his eye was on the play offs at the top end. His remit was to keep us in this league and he failed miserably by finishing bottom. In any other walk of life he would lose his job . Dods kept his job "because he was a decent bloke " despite not winning a game in a full season . It looks as if Barry is going to be given that same chance. That is not acceptable. We need someone in there who can lift the depression and put a positive spin on things....a manager who knows that to win games you need to attack and score goals.....a manager who can interact with the supporters and the community. Sorry Smith doesn't tick any of those boxes. On the keeper , I don't think Bowman is any better than Brennan. Paddy was made the scapegoat and it was obvious that he would have been dropped at the earliest opportunity. He is by far the more confident of the two at present. I feel Smith's choice of keeper has been poor at crucial times. He waited far too long to drop Brennan and Paddy was dropped far too quickly and Bowman was given too long into the run in where he has looked like a nervous wreck. The experienced guys that Smith brought in have been a big let down as well . They have the ability but again Smith's lack of ability to get the best out of them has been brutally evident. We need a complete change of direction , possibly with the introduction once again of a scout to pick up the best of the local talent from junior and amateur leagues...........a perfect example being those former players at the last game. Marc Miller ,came from amateur ......Doug Scott , junior ..... Bobby Brown , junior ....... Frank Conway , junior......... I could go on , but the common factor was these guys had a bit of heart and passion and the talent that was evident when they got their chance at senior level. The same could be said of giving a rookie manager a chance again . Again just my thoughts but it might be worth looking at formulas that worked for us numerous times before instead of choosing "so called professionals" who seem to think they know better because of their CV.
