  1. (Copy and paste from last week) "The least said about Saturday the better, time to move forward and look at ways to improve and take full points this week. Far too many people noticing the same issue in our line up. Time for DY to prove his mettle, and make the change we can all see is needed. " So, let's try again!

    And I do apologise for being presumptuous to Bohemians supporters, who if they win in Dublin, will have exactly the same issues.

    Angus, you've completely missed the point! The issue is not getting behind the lads, it's actually getting to the game , to get behind the lads. If my current contracted employer stick to the letter of contract, I won't be there. Unless Doc and Marty can pick me up in the Delorean. Also, from a pure health and safety aspect, why are the authorities forcing fans to drive the A9 in the middle of February at 10 pm, as this is probably the only mode of transport available.
  4. East Fife v Stranraer

    Wtf are we experimenting when we had a tried and tested team and formation that was so successful? AND , all that team were available today. That's 2 weeks in a row he has reverted to a defensive formation at home, against teams down the league. We were only 2 up at halftime because Stranraer didn't have a finisher. Could easily have been 2-2 . False sense of security , andNd the management didn't even see it.

    And we couldn't grudge you it if you did. That was shambolic, and the management MUST accept the blame.
  6. East Fife v Stranraer

    Ok DY, I apolised for not trusting your judgement 3 months ago. You turned that squad around and we were all impressed with the way they performed. It was a great formation, solid at the back and a continuous threat up front. So why, 3 months down the line have we reverted to the tried and failed method? I don't want to hear an aftermatch interview about individual errors, that's not the reason we threw that away. 3 - 0 and cruising, we begin the bizarre substitution program. Kyle Bell gets his chance I. The team and proves a worthwhile choice. So why on earth do we take the laddie off. We also change striker to the completely ineffective Courts. 2 points thrown away today, by bad management! Errors ? Yes, but , time to forget the old pals act. It's costing us games , everyone can see this , surely the management can? When you see experienced senior players in the team coming off and looking in wonderment, you know something isn't right. Sort it quick, or we will end up back in the mix. Get back to the players and formation that worked. But due to Baressi thinking he was Messi at the edge off his box, we lose a goal, and a player for next week. Well done to Stranraer though ,they realise, never give up against East Fife, because we will gift you points if you keep working.

    Straight forward!! Even the camels refuse to go there. But in all seriousness, who actually dreams these ideas up?? Can we all get some of that stuff. Players and support need to take at least half day off. The thought of the drive back after the game is awful of it were in May or August, but bloody February, it's a nonsense.
  8. The least said about Saturday the better, time to move forward and look at ways to improve and take full points this week. Far too many people noticing the same issue in our line up. Time for DY to prove his mettle, and make the change we can all see is needed. Play the best players in the positions they are/ have been comfortable in. RC19 has proven his worth this season, but isn't going to score goals our on the left mid. Anton Dowds is a big powerful target and has proven a handful for most CBs in the league, so wasted on the right touchline. Am I the only who thinks Pat is the missing link,? No idea what he likes is too, but if Daryl is back, then get Pat beside him. We are at home, we dictate what happens at Bayview, not the opposition. That was our downfall on Saturday. We changed our system to counter Montrose, and paid the penalty. Stick to your guns Darren, and fear no-one.
  9. East Fife v Montrose

    In all honesty, that's as good a scouting report as I'd give myself. Looked a lot better with Dowds beside him, as the big lad is a huge distraction for the CBs.Bit we have stopped playing them together.
  10. East Fife v Montrose

    Said it before the game , and I'll keep saying it.Get back to the 11 that started the 8 in a row. That was woeful today.
  11. East Fife v Montrose

    I've said it before ,and I'll say it again, get back to the regular starting 11 that won 8 INA row. If it hurts ego's , then so be it. How many times do we have to see a team without Pat, is a team without........Pat! No idea what he brings,but it's something that wins games. Get him back in.

    They are so used to BBC Englandshire interview techniques.
