I think we should at least look at going to a hybrid model with maybe 5 or 6 decent full timers then the rest good part timers.

Absolutely spot on .

We should have did this in the summer have a mix of full and part time players .

We could have maybe picked up the best part time players that way .

This must be a full time club is a myth that you get the best players now most players at our level prefer to play part time and work they make more money that way .

I reckon we'll have this model at best in the next season or two. We surely can't continue with FT football with our crowds.

He’s correct tho - this team will be relegated long before May if no signings are made.

Just read the OS match report which states we have two home wins in 2019. Desperate stuff.

We are always discussing novel ways to increase our crowds, but ultimately that stat has the biggest impact on our attendances.

I’d be interested in seeing our home form since the plastic went down. I suspect it will make grim reading. I know there are other factors at play, but it once again played absolutely terribly again today.

Yip. Numerous times today it got stuck in Holt's feet in particular. It seems to happen to Dobbie an awful lot as well. Not to mention the time it took players to control it after receiving a pass on the deck; Mercer was having particular trouble. The bobble is awful. There is no way it gives us an advantage, that's for sure. Unless we are making a significant amount of money from the rental income then I'm all for it being ripped up or at the very least getting in touch with those who laid Falkirk's. Our grass pitch was one of the best in the country.

We used to get more watching us at this level than Livingston and look where they are just now!

We either have a budget that can enable us to at least be half decent or we might as well drop down a division and call it a day. 

One thing is for sure, a year in year struggle is a means to a end. 

We've signed a squad of no ambition. It's no wonder fans don't want to come out and watch that shit. 

Still early doors but if this is a sign of things to come, time for Mr Hewitson to stand down

Just don't get this budget nonsense bigger crowds =more stewards 

Bigger all seater grounds =more overheads

Assumed bigger clubs have more staff and directors taking a wage 

We are supposed to be making money from the arena and the plastic pitch the main difference will be sponsorship so I don't think the wage difference will be as much as people think and getting it into potential signings heads that dumfries is 1 1/2hr from central belt it can take that long to get from paisley to dunfermline but we are out of site out of mind

After winning the first 2 games of the calendar year v ICT and County, we have won 2 of the next 19 league games.

I doubt a player bats a single eye lid at our location given training is in the central belt. They only have to travel a hour down the road for a home game every other week on average. 

How much income we generate gets pumped into the squad ?

Lots of over reaction tonight. Didn't see the match today  but previous matches didn't think we played that bad. Prob a bad day at the office. It was always going to be a tough season and a long way to go. Maybe the draw at arbroath wasn't that bad. There will be good days again, believe.

That's probably why you're not reacting the same way tbh.

Rip it up and bring back the grass pitch.

Do you know how much that would cost? Not that I'm disagreeing with the sentiment of your post. Unfortunately I don't think we can afford to go back to grass.
