Given any time Duggan got the ball to him he looked to bring it down and bring in non existent players then yeah, I'd say that was more threatening than Nesbitt and Vaughan dropping deep to pick up the ball to do nothing with it. He may have lost the ball a couple of times but he was pretty much up there on his own with no support so what else could he do? I'd put him down as more of a threat than Nesbitt or Vaughan was yes.
Wedderburn was man of the match because no one else did anything really. There was so many times the ball was up in the air to be won with the header and Wedderburn didn't even challenge. I genuinely can't remember anything he did to deserve man of the match apart from his run from the back. Although I can't think of anything anyone else did to get it. Flanagan would have been my man of the match given that he was the biggest threat we had the few opportunities he had to run at them and actually did a not bad job at defending given he isn't a defender.

Bring in "non existent" players? Eh? The invisible winger? The phantom striker? Duggan showed his menace by fluffing the best chance he had. He's currently as thrratening as a sheep.

He's as threatening as a sheep because two of our three centre backs on Saturday spent every opportunity shelling the ball forward rather than trying to play it through the midfield. This combined with one wingback who isn't good at attacking, and one who isn't good at defending. Our set up on Saturday isolated the likes of Duggan and Nisbet. Anyone can see Duggan isn't a target man, and that Nisbet isn't going to win high balls.

Whoever is managing on Saturday needs to get our players back in a formation where we'll see the benefits of them. If we have defenders trying to hoof it long, then they should be dropped for players who'll actually want to play into midfield. The performance against Forfar at home shows we can play good football on the deck. There's no need to "protect" McKay or Watson against teams like Montrose, who with no disrespect, don't have the same fire power as a top end championship team like Ross County. If either of those lads are to go on to forge careers in the game (and justify our youth fund) then they need game time.

So Crawford is a favourite is he? I sat next to his parents on a flight last year going to my honeymoon. Nice folks. Scored one of our most famous goals. I didn’t realise he had aspirations to go into management however.

Still McGlynn for me. Why’s he not been appointed yet?

Was EF manager for a bit, back in 08 I think. Maybe a number of years coaching will have developed him further but imagine on the face of it a few fits of laughter from Methil if we appointed him.

Who's said Crawford is favourite?

Could do much worse I reckon! Players worked hard for him but his lack of experience at the time held him back. If there's no money to strengthen and board want promotion it's hardly a tasty job it? Cuthbert must stay

This ought to come with a health warning. 

Genuinely the worst picture I've ever seen. 

It's now clear that the pair of them were conspiring to send us down. Sitting there pishing themselves laughing while we're drawing at home to Montrose with Euan Murray at right wing back. Pair of twats.
