I hope you're right but I have major concerns. As I've said before hard work is all well and good but you need quality to go up and I don't see from the signings and re-signings, Hendry and McKay apart, that we're going to be anywhere near good enough.

Time will tell and I hope I'm wrong but I just don't see it.

Lewis Vaughan lacks quality?

I've yet to meet a single Pars fan who "hates" the Rovers.

It's a bit unusual to have so many home friendlies against sides from leagues below us.

There used to be a room in Pitreavie Castle where vulnerable sorts were radicalised, but since Sky moved in everyone has been pretty much chilled about the whole thing.

My guess is we’ve went with teams that are happy to play away from home as it makes the season tickets appear better value for money. Maybe i’m being cynical but seems very unusual.

Can anyone interpret this shite?

Was waiting for a taxi on the way to heading out for the night having a wee light hearted laugh at the worst full time team in the country and opened my phone an hour or so later to find I'd left that weird autotext message on this thread...... :lol:

From the info I heard you made him an offer, and it was a East Fife fan who told me


But who would the offer to him have been instead of?
Barring the fash Debacle we got all our first choice targets...

Haven’t you lost your best centre half from last year and still not replaced him? For all his flaws, I would still much prefer Davo to Chris Higgins.

We did yes but we have signed higgins as a replacement?

Anyway does this now mean McGeever isn’t going to you guys? Happy with that as he is a quality defender

Does anyone know what the status of the Reserve side is for this upcoming season?

We took part in the nine-team Reserve League 2 last year, but this tweet from the Shire suggests we might not be this time around.



It's not definitive, there could easily be another team added, but there are nine there already.

I don't think an approach to the Reserves was mentioned in Bill Clark's interview, but I could be wrong. I'd be interested to hear what the plans are for the younger players in the squad, who aren't likely to get many first team minutes.

And Watson too.

Highly irrelevant but I know but If we had a friendly to play today I'd start with;

McGurn

Watson, McKay, Bene, Macdonald

Spencer, Henry, Matthews, Anderson,

Bowie and Victoria.

Obviously Vaughan and Dingwall would feature if fit but it'd still be a decent team.

Still required;

A keeper (on 6month loan? or pick up a part time guy)

A right back

Winger/midfielder

2 strikers
