Was there any explanation from the club? Development? Your predicament has strong parallels with our Gary Fucking Locke version; good player inexplicably sent away, some debatable recruitment, too many short term deals for players with no attachment or commitment, a manager who didn't know what to do with the mess he made and an accelerating downhill slide . Your good start will see you safe but like Locke, Crawford's reputations as a player and as a manager are two very different things.
To be fair to the Pars, at least they had the sense not to loan Turner out to a team in the same division.
And from what I can recall, Gary Locke was only marginally less shite as a player than he's been as a manager.
