Still can’t believe we didn’t sign Greig Spence in the summer.

He wouldn't get a start🤣. It's one up top till we get to the desperation stakes in a game, It'll be the same against Airdrie.

Do you know that this is the case?

Any player that I've heard mention his name refers to him as 'Keena', I really don't think it's a leap to suggest that the rest do too.

Fair dos, Popodopolouschaterjeesingh. I bet they're glad that you aren't playing for us.

Who? His wife? His father? His brother?

In life I don't know a single person who is referred to by their family name as a matter of course and / or as a term of endearment.

The only people I know who are referred to by their family name on a sole or regular basis are fictional TV characters: Columbo, Quincy, Morse, Kojak, Mulder, Scully, Starsky (not Hutch though), House, Cagney, Lacey, Spock etc.

It just smacks to me of bad personnel management by Sheerin, calling some players by a given name or nickname and others by their family name.

Don't be silly.

I agree it is rare for a surname to be used in this way but IMO it's not being used in a derogatory way in this instance at all.

If the players (most of whom would have known Keena closely before Sheerin did) refer to him like that then it's natural that Sheerin would too. 

The guy (Paul, not Aidan) has enough to worry about without double checking what he should be calling his players in an interview.

Actually, after I had replied I remembered that both my son-in-law and his pal are both called by their surnames on a regular basis. They both have the same first name and have been pals since they were wee, so that's probably the reason.

Is it the case that in those very desperation stakes, we have scored four and conceded none? For all that, it still “disappoints” Sheerin that we have to resort to that tactic (scoring and not conceding) in order to draw/win games.

🤷Id be more concerned about being less "disappointed" or keeping my job beyond Christmas, although it's not quite Dunfermline levels of abuse yet, another bizarre engaging of views with fans after scraping a win against the bottom side in the division after one of the worst performances in an absolute age for 45 mins won't help his cause. That win absolutely bought him some time, how long remains to be seen.

Out of interest what was Spock's first name?

Was it Brian?

All this chat is making me wonder exactly what Paul Dixon did so wrong that has resulted in him always being referred to as Dickers?

Mister.

You lot need to up the excitement, the Pars thread is drawing all the flies recently.

Novelty finally wearing off with us. Will pick up again around April probably or if we draw some non league team in the Scottish.
