  1. To be fair I think everyone was expecting better. A few on here are suggesting we don't need many changes, I don't see it like that. Yes we reached the SC final but we were awful to watch in the league at times. We finished 5th, lost as many goals as we scored. Basically got rid of the younger player strategy and brought in some'experienced' players plus a some truly uninspiring signings. So far this season, we are continuing in the same vein, we have not seen Rogers, McHugh or Heffernan (if they sign), so how do we know how good they'll be? For a club that have money in the bank, we continually appear to be penny pinching and shopping in the bargain basement even considering we have lost McDonald, Loy and constant rumors surrounding Vaulks, Sibbald, and Leahy. My reflection so far is really one of disappointment and very similar to last season when we waited far too long to react and basically run out of time to find the players required to compete. I know there is time before the season starts but I'm not sure I trust Houston to deliver the goods. His record so far is not great in the transfer market. Are we thinking this season we ain't gonna get promoted so why spend decent money? I think our supporters deserve better than they are getting at this time.
  2. Extract from WikiIt was reported that he was asking for £1,600 per week, which would have made him the third highest earner at the club.[10] Several clubs, including Rangers, Celtic and Newcastle United, expressed an interest in signing Allan.[11] As a result of rejecting a new contract, Allan fell out with Manager Peter Houston.[12] Mark Millar never got any second chance... So is this a credible story?
  3. I couldn't agree more, never got a real chance under Hughes when he was here, At Saints he was fantastic (I'm actually surprised they are not back in for him). He struggled at Hibs and maybe that was down to his Billy Bigtime attitude and maybe too much pressure on him, he was released by Butcher and then re-signed by Stubbs, what does that do for confidence etc...Hibs made him captain so that was a bit of an honour for him. I have to be honest here, his attitude on the last game if the season soured my view on him. The last thing I want to see in navy blue every week is a petulant, moaning faced git being over the top with referees
  4. That will be fucking great... Hope Danny Lennon's got the same golden lab and white stick Houston had FFS
  5. The jury is out on McHugh but looked fairly decent in last season's play offs but if I remember correctly he was against McCracken and Johnny Flynn but really struggled at Motherwell Maybe I am wrong but if he signs I will feel a wee bit underwhelmed and disappointed. I thought given we are not that short of cash I was expecting a bit better. I don't feel this type of signing as very inspirational and won't add much value to the ST sales Hope I am wrong!
  6. Hey it wasn't my fault... It was Twitter's!
  7. Ha ha LOL just goes to show what I know about DAFC LOL GIGGLING LIKE f**k!!
  8. Shhh lol. No-one knew any better FFS... Come to think about it neither did I!!!
  9. Quite easy to find out, I'm surprised you NEEDED to ask me! Dunfermline Athletic In: Paul George, midfielder (Celtic); Andrew Barrowman, forward (Greenock Morton); Jim Paterson, defender (Forfar Athletic); David Hopkirk, forward (Annan Athletic). Loan: Kyle McAusland, defender (Rangers).
  10. Nice wee letter from the club today, I nearly melted and went straight down to part with my cash but remained strongShow me some signings first please Club, All rights reserved.
  11. Bejizz...love it. Might even change my name
  12. There you go again frightening off the club's supporters. I will be potentionally buying a ST this year again, we have few enough fans committing to the club for 2015/2016 season so stop scaring people off, the club will not thank you for it!
  13. Yes Mr Dust, they were mismanaged and didn't invest in the future and found it difficult to compete in a very competitive market. You see they didn't want to be the market leader we they were happy to finish 4th in their own category of shop, they weren't bold enough to get a new decent manager, making sure they had a good grip on the retail sector... Basically weren't interested in competing with the big boys... Sounds familiar to you does it? You only get out what you put in!
  14. Lol, no stop being silly! I was merely suggesting their shop was much better stocked than ours and into the bargain the staff were far more friendly. We should not over react, sometimes we have to concede that some teams just do things a bit better than us. Some, we could learn from. That's all I'm saying!
  15. Take it you are being satirical or sarcastic... Who are you really terribly fond of?
  16. Trust me mate... You must have been at the wrong ground, you could have bought 122 pencils and still bought the same again... No problem!
  17. I love the satire and sarcasm on this site, ha ha it's brilliant.
  18. I think it's a dangerous assumption that Muirhead will be injury free this term, one wrong turn or awkward fall could undo all the good getting fit... How many players have you heard that are just injured constantly? I don't know but you really have to question why our maestro actually bought Muirhead, OTJ and Boulding in the first place FFS, How unlucky can you get 3 signings crocked all at once. Maybe Mr H takes too many wrong types of gambles... Maybe he should be scouring the country (UK) trying to unearth our next gem or... is this too much hard work or too much to ask?
  19. IMO the club are actually playing at retail. I have never seen the club shop so sparce as it was last season. I'm not going to claim I know much about stock demand and turnover but I would have thought that every piece of merchandise sold would go towards the bottom line, the balance here is getting the stock levels to meet demand. It probably takes some time to get the right stock in place throughout the season and not just planning for Christmas, so it is not surprising there were low levels of stock pre cup final. It's one of these things the club is damned if they do, damned if they don't. I happened to have the misfortune to be at EEP (my son in law is a pars fan) just prior to our cup final. Their shop is full of replica kits, polo shirts, toys etc...in fact, it puts ours to shame, the staff were really friendly and couldn't have done enough for you, stark comparison to ours, although I was impressed by the stock levels and service I was left scratching my head thinking I thought they were skint so why is all that money tied up in stock when the first team are doing so poorly? I would honestly say their club shop had at least 20 times more stock than ours... That is ok if you are selling it... The point I am making here is DAFC would have made a huge profit if they had reached the cup final.
  20. I think we need more than a few tweaks and I hope Houstie has some players lined up. Last season we conceded 48 goals so I think it's fair to say our defence needs bolstered, I think we need 2 new defenders. The midfield seems solid enough unless we lose Sibbs. Upfront is another issue, I like Baird's attitude and workrate but he lacks real pace so we need a forward who can commit defenders and can finish when he gets a chance. How we ended up with Boulding and Morgan defeats me. Hopefully Houstie has learned from his first season where the team only won 14 from 36 games which equates to less than 40%. I am sure the supporters will be looking for a big improvement. Think the honeymoon period is well and truly over.
  21. Was browsing through some other team's websites and came across this and I thought what a great idea...A ST counter to keep the fans informed. Would this be a good idea for our club to take on board and put on put on our club website? I read comments on forums from FFC fans wondering how the ST's are shaping up
