Aye, but not for any reason other than we won't be able to afford to stay full-time!

No as far as I'm aware that is the plan if the new guys get in with their investment. Have a core set of full time players on better wages and then have a number of part time players cherry picked from other clubs. Increases your options by quite a bit .

Montrose are better than us. Let that sink in. 

Much more organised and they expected to take something from the game! Nobody up front for us with any ariel threat or ability to hold the ball up, and powder puff performance from us generally! Don't  think the players believe anymore in Sheerins tactics On a separate note Mutch  even with the odd mistake is a much better option than Martin who hesitates before coming for crosses. Where is Mutch anyway surely he's not been dropped in favour of holts son. It would be difficult to make a bigger clusterfuck of running the club than led miller but Gary Deans and his pals seem to have taken us to a new lowTotal push!

Best way ahead for me, at least until we are out of League 1.

Just a wee update on the comparison of players we have moved to other clubs vs players we brought in this season.

Do you think anyone at the club has realised that teams aren’t “raising their game” against us, they are just better than us?

We are in a sad and scary place. We are a mid table League 1 club and I can’t see things improving if we continue as we are. I’m also not sure things will be any better if we sack him and bring in someone like Rice.

I feel we’re fucked either way. What do we do? What’s the state of play with the fans “takeover”?

Problem is we need 3 or 4 decent signings in January to give us a chance and we know what January's like and what's the point if Holt is still there we'll just be pushing more money down the drain.  Ballantynes loan is up at Montrose in January I'd give st Johnstone a call but then why the feck would he want to come to us over Montrose? We also  need a decent striker and a centrehalf.

I think we need a clear out from top to bottom, empty the board and get new blood in with fresh ideas. Get some sort of fan involvement including partial ownership, along the lines of the scheme Kenny Jamieson was involved with a few years back where we have the option of putting in a lump sum or a monthly contribution. Get shot of Holt/Sheerin and look at a hybrid model of full time players supplemented by the best of the part time players. Whoever we get as manager they have to be experienced or at least if we go down the route of a younger coach we need an auld heid in there assisting them.

I just hope this new board has a remit of getting all the fans back onboard. The main way of doing that has to be a better product on the park.

Just watched Sheerins interview. Have the bod actually explained to him his remit is to win the league? The way he talks and his complete lack of giving a feck makes me wonder if he thinks keeping us in league one is what he'll earn his bonus for.

Quite frankly the man is a clown.

I'm just struggling to think of any decent options to be honest. We need an experienced head but there aren't that many about looking for jobs just now unfortunately. I wouldn't give anyone a contract longer than till may.

Would like John Robertson to get the job but would be astonished if it happened.

They interviews man holy f**k. You’ve got Sheerin still talking like he’s in boys football and oh it’s unlucky but there’s another game next week. Then Lewis and Paul Dixon talking like it’s been a smash and grab from Montrose.

Absolutely clueless.
