  1. I'm not saying he would. The argument I was seeing was that MSRR was a moron for suggesting Pressley would be a better bet than Holt for this role. I was talking hypothetically, I'm aware he more than likely is still delusional enough to think he can get a premiership gig. His record after Falkirk is indefensible, I'm purely talking about what he done for us. Which I believe is massively underestimated.
  2. A lot of managers would have just sat in and hoped for the best with young players. Pressley from the beginning tried to play football. And in doing so, he put the young players on the shop window, it was brave and it played off. A team with an average age of 19 finishing 3rd, reaching a semi final and winning a trophy was a great achievement. It's fairly annoying how dismissive some of our fans are about Pressley. Falkirk were a club with style and he adhered to that. I'm not sure any manager since has in all honesty.
  3. Are we seriously suggesting that Pressley didn't recruit better than Holt? I'm afraid Holt found his style when he brought in big Beck and it was hoof ball. He's continued that at Livi and I'm sure he will take it here. Our team is drivel at best atm so we will need a large turnover. Guys like Farid, Vaulks, Leahy and Miller were discovered by Pressley, not to mention all the young players he brought through, which brought money in that effectively saved our club. The football was also probably considerably better than anything we've seen since. The pride you feel when your own youngsters are beating Rangers and making national semi finals can't be beaten by anything, especially not bottling a league title with the best squad in the league by a mile like Holt did. I can understand the hesitance towards Pressley because of his management history after Falkirk, however looking at what he done for us as a manager, I would think a DOF role would suit him perfectly.
  4. I think Raith are just a bit too small and insignificant to make it anything serious. Yes it's a derby but I think you're lying to yourself if you're saying the fife derby holds more meaning than Falkirk vs Dunfermline.
  5. Some people on here must not actually watch us play, Mutch was at worst slightly shaky in that Forfar game. If you look at what Mutch does he's excellent, holds on to the ball rarely parry's or punches, his distribution is outstanding, probably the best I've seen from a falkirk keeper which in the modern game is vital. He makes big saves and almost always provides a safe pair of hands, not to mention the fact he is our player and possibly only asset left in the whole club. Yes what he done was stupid beyond belief but it's time we get him back in (once recovered).
  6. I'd say given your reaction he's been incredibly smart with it, never has anyone so effortlessly wound up a support as much as this. Fair enough you might find him annoying, but ultimately Calling Queens poor atm is hardly pointing anything new out.
  7. If you don't vote for this clearly it is you who is the moron, I mean without knowing all the details, you know the Rawlins have had success at two clubs, what more would you actually need? If this is rejected it will be our biggest mistake ever made potentially.
  8. The way things have been run recently would surely make any fan want change, at this point I would happily take someone with absolutely no knowledge of them in, if I thought there was even a chance it could work, how anyone can bare the crap we've put up with in recent years is beyond me. In this case however, there actually is knowledge of the people interested and they stand up against anyone at our level very well. You'd have to be incredibly stupid to vote against this, quite simple. If the club continue as they have been leadership wise, we will likely never really see our potential.
  9. I think when you're a full time team playing against tinpot shite you should be capable of comfortably out performing them in any circumstances. If the players weren't up for the game that's actually more worrying given they haven't played for so long, would think they would be bursting for a game. Wouldn't normally shit the bed over a friendly result but even with 5 trialists and a new team at half time the Shire should not be beating us.
  10. Fair enough my impression was it was a deal till January that was cut short. The point still stands, he played badly in the games he played, as did the rest of the team. The guys miles past it, certainly was a very good player but this isn't 2010.
  11. It's inevitable in my opinion? You might disagree. That's the way I see it.
  12. Once again missing the point. Poor signing, as all of your signings have been really. Relegation is inevitable. Just my opinion, I know you don't take kindly to the opinion that Queens are anything other than dross, but that's all it is.
  13. He "took apart my post" what absoslute crap 😂 you're getting far to caught up on how many games he played as opposed to the actual standard he's shown, which btw is pretty awful and miles off championship standard. So yes I'd say I'm fairly confident you will be going down. Let's just hope that Dykes money can salvage some sort of quality in this window for you.
  14. What absoslute nonsense 😂😂 his performances were not in merit of a new deal, fair enough he might have left for personal reasons but I'm sure no Stenny fans were sad to see the back of him. I'm absoslutely certain QOS will be relegated and I don't think it will be long before the proof is in the pudding. This is miles from a good signing.
  15. He was absoslutely dreadful for the majority of his time there. Wasnt offered a new deal and never appeared fully fit. If you think he will be a success you're very deluded and mistaken.
