  1. Sons' sorrow

    Steele quoted as saying "I ain't no facking wheeler dealer" as he drove away.
  2. Ryan Gauld

    It's fine saying his career hasn't gone so well, or as well as we all hoped. Then predicting that he'll amount to nothing because of the evidence of the last 4 years is jumping the gun a bit though.
  3. 2018/19 Challenge Cup

    You didn't use the word but you suggested that they put out a team to lose, which is pretty much fixing it. Nothing was stopping East Fife "using their squad to its full potential" in the last round either.

    FTFY. Jim White is in the car park for all exclusives from now on.
  5. Ryan Gauld

    Aside from his career trajectory in this post on the previous page, you mean? If he's 26 and still plodding around the Portuguese second division I will bow to your superior clairvoyance.
  6. 2018/19 Challenge Cup

    Hardly fixing the match so they go out as you originally suggested. You register a squad at the start of the season and you're fit to use it as you wish. East Fife could've played their reserves against Queens if you wished.
  7. 2018/19 Challenge Cup

    They weren't trying to lose their cup match but they were trying to make sure they weren't in the cup any more? How does that work?
  8. Sons' sorrow

    It'll be Durrant and Ewings. McPherson isn't employed by the club.
  9. Work colleagues

    Was there any evidence of him doing this on CCTV or the like? He should've just kept his trap shut. Who the f**k hands over cash to a doorman.
  10. Morton v Falkirk - 20/10/18

    That red card
  11. The East Fife Thread

    This is what I don't get. Surely when we approached these leagues and asked them if they were interested we told them the dates that each tie would be played on? In which case, Bohemians are entirely aware that they need a squad together for this date and if they can't fulfil it then they surely forfeit. Given that each year we seem to get clashes with other cup ties for these teams as well, I wonder if anyone actually does any organising at all with this cup or if we really are just winging it each year and hoping something can be worked out when the shit hits the fan.

    Applications closed at 4pm, interview with outstanding candidate at 6pm (after pampering them with a Sloany 3 courser and as much wine as they need), contract signed for 8pm, announcement with John Steele and our new man standing atop Dumbarton Rock, absolutely blootered, holding a Dumbarton scarf above their heads at 9pm. Easy.
  13. Arbroath vs Dumbarton

    Strange feeling this one. It feels like a bit of a free go for us. We've been shite and are currently without a manager. We either go into Saturday with Ian Durrant in temporary charge and have absolutely no expectation, or we go into it with a new gaffer in charge and still absolutely no expectation, due to how shite we've been. I would obviously prefer the latter as it's likely to increase the efforts of the playing staff but I don't feel any pressure going into this. Arbroath have been excellent so far this season and are quite rightly top of the pile. They're coming off a bad defeat though and I'm sure Dick will be looking for a reaction from his squad. If we take anything from this game I'll be quite happy.
  14. Sons' sorrow

    Knowing how careful our webmaster is with his words, I'm pleased to be reading that. It does mean that from 4pm today my F5 key will be taking an almost constant beating by my index finger, but it's pleasing none the less.
  15. Ryan Gauld

    Calling Gaulds career a "disaster" or "unbelievably bad" is entirely your perception. Other people have the perception that things could have gone better for him, but a lot of circumstances were out-with his control. He's now at a club where he seems happy and is trying to fight his way into the starting 11, something that I imagine more than just Ryan Gauld will need to do at a new club. He's played more than double the amount of senior games (over 140 at this stage) that Jack Harper has (around 60 senior games for him, over 50 of them with Malaga's B team) and given that Harper now looks to be progressing with Malaga, I think it would be fair to hold off on any predictions on Gauld. I fail to see what's amusing about people not being eternally negative about future prospects. There are no other young Scottish players who will have the education (on and off the field) that Gauld is getting. Let's just see what he does, no?
