    We are absolutely crying out for someone that can play wide with a bit of pace. 

    Another comment I picked up on , was that McPake prefers his full backs getting forward rather than wide players. I genuinely don't think we'll sign any wide players now.

    Anyone able to provide updates from the meeting tonight? Couldn’t make it along, but will be interesting to hear what’s said

    Quite hard to follow but there were some updates on .net.

    Not sure the context but Finlay Robertson of Dundee is mentioned as a potential signing I think.

    How’s MacDonald been this season?

    His not getting a start due to McPake's favoured 4-3-3 formation.

    The theme of our season so far is that we have to change to 3-5-2 when it's clear the 4-3-3 doesn't work in the attacking sense.  This where Kyle has come on at right wing back and put some cracking crosses in. Set up Todorov's winner against Montrose. Seems obvious that we should start 3-5-2 but only McPake know why we don't.

  4. Wonder when McPake will wake up and realise his front three set up is a total shambles. O'Hara and Wighton are totally ineffective in the role he's making them play.

    The central midfield lacks any creative ability too. Nobody that can put their foot on the ball and look for a pass. I know this will be unpopular but Matty Todd is all legs and arms. Not composure and no real footballing ability. We need to replace him as the attacking midfielder.

    Long had he been with you? Did he play friendly games etc?

    Wondering how far away he is from match fitness.

    Would have thought you would have offered him a better deal than us.

    Not sure how much we're offering these days. Would of thought it would be at least the same as any lower half pay scale championship club.

    Could be a few things though, ranging from you guys pushed the boat out a bit more than we wanted to pay, location better for him. I'm sure his from Ayrshire or simply wants to play at a higher level above all else.

    The 5 sub rule is also proving to be a b*****d as it means teams are hanging onto more players that should be getting farmed out for development.

    Aye, that is a good point. A rule that's holding back youth players getting first team football elsewhereand needs looked at .3 subs and a spare keeper was fine. The ability to change half your team is becoming a bit of a joke. It's an advantage to bigger wealthier clubs too.

    Efe Ambrose is apparently playing in a friendly for us tonight.

    Please tell me he wasn't as bad as I think he was for you guys...

    Poor buggers. Bombscare.

    Loves to fanny about with wee tricks at the back rather than concentrating on the basics of defending.

    I've just booked my ticket.

    Never been to Dunfermline before, so it'll be good to tick another ground off the list.

    I fancy taking a stroll around the Abbey before grabbing a bite to eat. My research suggests that The Old Inn is nearby and does decent food. Has anyone any better suggestions for a pre-match feast?


    If you're heading to the Abbey then the The Old Inn is a good shout if it's pre-match pub grub you are looking for. Not had food in there since the new owners took over but it looked decent enough from pictures I've seen.

    The Pars were formed in the Old Inn in 1885. 

  9. Just watched the highlights there. Some amount of chances we missed yesterday. McDonald's sitter was shocking. Todorov again guilty and O'Hara.

    Wighton looked good from some of the clips and should start with McCann next week. Mochrie coming in for O'Hara. If we bring in Robbie Crawford next week and Hamilton will definately come back into the starting 11, you could be looking at two of yesterday's midfielders getting dropped after a 3-0 win.

    Centre back cover and a winger and think we will be done with recruitment. I'm still wondering who covers Edwards if he's injured or suspended?
