    Now, if you had said " Morton/Partick/QotS", I would say - BRING IT ON!
  2. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    Ahh, so that's why they are all excited then?
  3. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    Can anyone enlighten me on Beastie's comment '4-1 patter' please, I'm curious?
  4. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    What do you mean by '4-1 patter'?
  5. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    I do believe you are attempting to give the rest of us an image of yourself, that suggests you possess some intelligence? It hasn't worked I'm afraid old chap. Your statement is simply another example of pure pish. Night, night.
  6. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    My post above was merely pointing out how the minds of some supporters (within all clubs), work in such a way. Clearly not quite the 'full shilling', as they say chum.
  7. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    Yer talking pish mate. What posts were you reading??
  8. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    You haven't read the posts during the game by a few of your fellow pissed off supporters then? I suppose it is a results based business right enough, but how it so clouds the brains of some football supporters, causing their state of minds to flip 100% from slagging off their team, to thinking they are fab within the space of 2 minutes and vice-versa! How is it possible for them to enjoy football with anger and love competing incessantly inside their heads?
  9. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    Sort of.
  10. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    Not sensible, because as your own supporters had already said up until you scored, East Fife were the better team for most of the game and the Rovers never threatened. It was only after the subs coming on that the game changed, but be honest about your assessments, especially Big Fifer who must have been watching a different game and saying he had no complaints! It was a smash and grab result and you know it.
  11. East Fife V Raith Rovers

    Doesn't matter whether or not they were full time last season, it matters now. If that was the case, why do the likes of massive teams like Raith bother going full time? All they need to do is bring in full time players from the previous season and they would be sorted, no need to go full time ever! To argue that a player who was previously full time means he must still be as fit, is just daft.

Playing at a high tempo and getting in our faces knowing full well we can't cope with that
  14. Arbroath vs East Fife

    You wouldn't, would you? Must have been the only fan in the ground not to have a whinge about the officials.

    Red Dot for managing to achieve the "What a Load of Absolute Bollocks" award for this season!!! Stevie got the job in April 2009 and resigned October 2010, he had to steady a sinking ship, which is what we were after the departure of Dave Baikie, Wullie Grey, his money and subsequently all our high profile players, who proved they were only there for the pay packet!!! We skirted with relegation for the majority of that season as Stevie Crawford had to do the job with basically both hands tied behind his back, no money to replace the superstars who had left and having to battle with a team made up of young boys and some loan signings built around the likes of Jonny Smart, Bobby Linn and Div Muir. At no time during this was Crawford subject to any vilification or abuse, we all knew what sort of pressure he was under and this pressure was obviously having an effect on the guy this and this alone was what saw him resign his position, but what endeared him to the support was his desire to keep us in the Division, he didn't desert a sinking ship he still stayed on to help bail us out and he did just that!!! He played possibly his best game for us in the final league game of his first season as manager, away to Arbroath, where his inspired performance gave us a 2-2 draw (goals from Linn and Muir putting us 2-1 up at one stage) and left the field, knackered to a standing ovation after giving his all and ensuring we left Gayfield with the point that kept us one point ahead of Arbroath who got relegated instead!!! He resigned as Manager in October of the following season when again we were rooted in the relegation zone for the same reasons as the previous season but as I've said before he didn't just say "f**k this", he stayed as a player and coach under John Robertson until January 2011 when he was pinched in the transfer window by Cowdenbeath and the desire to be reunited with his mentor Jimmy Nicholl and mate Colin Cameron to form a "Dream Team" (wonder what happened with that???) That is the reason he left and no amount of revisionism by you will change that!!! This Escalated quickly!! To be fair nothing KK said was unfair on Crawford, he was at the time a bad manager, all be it in very bad conditions surrounding the club (there were worse years than his that followed) but i always thought the same as KK, SC didnt just throw the towel in, he stayed and tried to help the team, says a lot about his commitment to the club, which as a fan i appreciated, and is why i am glad to see him get some short tem success just now with dunfermline. That being said the 'AFTN gestapo' you describe i think were probably about 30% real fans frustrated a the way the club was going at the time, and around 70% wind up merchants, the internet is a crazy place for keyboard gangsters. I do remember the old AFTN message board being criticised by players for being to harsh, but if you look at any fans message board after a bad result you would find similar. What a Load of Absolute Bollocks
