rumours of billy king


He’s a lightweight shitebag. A winger version of Charlie Telfer. He’d probably do ok but he’s done absolutely nothing so far in his career. Would rather we’d avoid signing dugmeat like that tbh.

That rumour has reared his head a couple of times before. Im with you. Not another shitehouse that goes missing in every match.

Why’s DKD not been offered anything? Genuinely brought excitement anytime he was on the ball last season and chipped in with a few goals. Would absolutely shag this league.

I dont have any problem with M and M being appointed, the thing is they can only p*ss with the c*ck that Ray McKinnon has till January, i dont expect Durnan or any of the players to miraculously turn into Messi or Ronaldo what did you honestly expect at least we are trying to attack the problem is the players we have are limited in that capacity.  It would be nice to turn up at a game and not think "oh f**k" when Durnan has the ball or even see Doyle actually beat his man, we seen Sammon win a header on Saturday so theres a start.

I want Miller and McCracken to do well, I want them to get us up and have us doing well in the league above also. However:

We knew Durnan was an issue under McKinnon, yet this management duo try and shoehorn him into a back 3/5 at every opportunity. How about just don’t play him and stick to a back four when Toshney is fit?

You’re right, it’s frustrating watching Doyle struggle to beat a man, yet they’ve set him up as the only option down the right hand side.

In fairness to Sammon winning a header, they’ve went with McMillan and McManus the last few games to avoid this. Yet everyone knows Sammon isn’t a target man anyway so why would you insist on playing it high to him anyway.

This attacking football... in five league games we’ve been out shot by, you guessed it, Airdrie Raith and East Fife.

Not asking us to scud everyone 4 or 5 nil. I do expect a full time team to have a clear game plan for how to break down any opposition in this league, and get the best out of these players who are no great shakes, but can certainly improve.

It's really weird that he isnt playing anywhere. He looked definitely rough but with flair and a lot of potential.

Wonder if he's chucked it, would be a shame.

Tbf it’s not a great start. 2 wins from 5 league games and the style of football really isn’t much better than under McKinnon.

I’m definitely not against them and like most fans I imagine really like both of them but I’m really concerned as every game goes that they are not learning anything. This formation does not work with the squad we’ve got, it nullifies our most creative player in Longridge and means our shite centre backs end up with note of the ball. I really want them to do well but they need to learn fast and we really need a big January with a good few players coming/going.

 

Need to get behind the boys COYB and give them a chance!?!!1 COYB

You'd like to think that M&M are aware of him, the fact that he played for us and was a fan's favourite and that he's currently available? Maybe someone should tell them?

I’m guessing getting him to move here permanently for a mediocre wage in league 1 might not  be easy as he’s been back home down south.

Or there is some background baggage they don't like. It's the only reason I can think of why we or nobody else has signed him.

I want them to do well, but nothing I've seen suggests that we're any better than we were under McKinnon.

Folk are making the point that we're unbeaten, but we didn't exactly lose *loads* of games under McKinnon - we just drew an awful lot against teams around our level. Which we're still doing.

Some of our fans were creaming themselves that we thumped a pub team and then beat the worst team in the league. Unbelievable stuff.

Doyle is incapable of dinking past or wrong footing his man he simply runs into him hoping the ball will break his way Absolute jobber

As I previously posted in the summer, if we do sign Goodwillie, I will not be back as long as he is on our books.

I hope that it is just speculation and rumour.  The fact is that when I spoke with Kieron in the club shop in the summer about this issue, his statement to me was " the club cannot take the moral high ground"   Well I as a father and husband, categorically can!

Well let’s all look forward to the new year, said at the time ( M&M appointment) that the main objective was to take the pressure off the BOD MSG, for failing to fire RM on bringing us down into the mire. Absurdly & shockingly ( not being fired) he (RM) was given a budget the chancellor of the exchequer would have been doing cartwheels with. Any decent manager should have identified the best young players from around the leagues and maybe with likes of Gomis Longridge and Mitch built a team worthy of pulling on the navy blue.

What we got ( on paper ) was 12/13 players that were from mediocre teams, a large percentage squad players. Every supporter could see that after 4/5 games we had an imbalanced first eleven. Young fit hard working teams soon had us worked out, bloody hell it wasn’t that difficult. Wind the clock on, M&M brought in, sorry but apart from two twenty minute spells over the past five games were back to a negative McKinnonesque style of football.
Unless both have been promised funds for making changes, I’m terrified that we will be at best in the play offs, and with no wins out of seven games played against the top three stats don’t lie. We won’t go up.

Hate saying this but unless M&M can change the attitudes and desires of the current squad, and with change of personnel we’re quickly heading into the abyss.

Another season down here would ultimately lead to admin, or part time football. Can’t even think that our MSG would want this scenario.......

Think that has been the biggest f**k up, i would imagine that 90% of this leagues players were out of contract last summer we should have went for 5 or 6 of the better ones who know this league then back them up with quality like longbridge, Gomis, mutch etc. Even if it meant doing a hybrid model with some staying part time similar to Raiths model.

What we do in the transfer market players in and out in the next few weeks will not only define this season but seasons to come.

We require players that have a future and the team can be built around. Not only this season but the next two. Sign the right type, and players around them can be like new signings. Who would be good enough if we did go up ? Mutch, Gomis, McManus, Longridge and then one or two maybe's and that's it. So the new signings should not only help get us promoted but give a squad of 7 to 8 to build from in the higher league.

The problem is that the type of player we require and would be available would have more attractive offers than FFC.

As for Part Time be warned ! If we did even with some of the squad then its the slippery slope and near impossible to change. Believe me I lived through it in the 70's in the Miller , Little , Hagart era and it was turgid decline and attendances down to 400-500 and no hope no future. We lost generations of supporters and they never came back.
