Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Recommended Posts

I genuinely would not be surprised to see FEB back at East End for a third go. He was rank when he came here on loan last season but I can't help but feeling he was used so badly when he did play, he had niggling injuries which couldn't have helped and his confidence was shot as well. He probably acted the big time Charlie as well but given the dressing room in general appears to have been a nightmare it's probably no surprise.

If he did come back he'd have my support anyway, if not then so be it....but I reckon he'd fit in well with this team

The player Ross & Craw have talked about is under contract with another club so can't see the return of El Bak. Wouldn't be against it though - clean slate etc and we've all seen how devastating he can be. I wouldn't be against Aird coming back either. His personality might not sit well with Stevie though but he's a proven matchwinner at East End and United will surely need to offload a wage or two.

Probably been discussed recently but have we been given an updated ETA on Thomson at all?

Came across that there, basically Stranraer do a piece where they talk to current/ex players and ask about their favourite games, rather impressively I can't remember a thing about that game but the team gives me the absolute fear. 

The way McCann and Jefferies acted seems incredibly dickish. 

Reading that I am glad they won.

Honestly have no memory of this, so was clearly one of many moments I'd repressed from that time period.

Neil McCann being a fucking arsehole should shock absolutely no one. A spoilt wee p***k.

Around December time I last heard.
I'm sure he is doing very light treadmill work now.

Good recommendations about the club were made by former Pars players now on the books at Airdrieonians - Callum Fordyce, David Hutton and Nat Wedderburn. Josh claimed that had 
been really important. 

“They were all speaking to me and told me how much they enjoyed their time at Dunfermline and what a great club it is. That just made my decision even easier.”

You can't be serious about El Bak returning,? Really? He scored f**k all goals from open play in the league last year, barely looked threatening and created nothing.

You're at it

El Bak thinks he's better than he is. Totally found out at this level. He'll be playing volleyball football or whatever it is in the south of France again. 

Wouldn't be against the return of Aird, though.

Just saw on the United thread that Aird has been offered three months' wages to piss off out of Tannadice.

On his day Aird would terrorise any team in this league, he has Pogba syndrome though and only seems to do that when he wants to (ie. playing for a new contract)

not the type of attitude and mentality for what we are trying to achieve IMO, not worth upsetting the balance for 1 player

A lot of people seem to say this, but any time I saw him, barring the opening game of the season, he played well.

He'd have my support naturally but he'd really have to pull his finger out. Thought money bags Falkirk might have tried to get him in considering how prolific he was when we won league 1.

He played well the first 1/4, went missing in the middle and was bang average bar a couple of world cup goals and then played the best football of his time with us the last 5 games.......then left

I didn’t notice this from Aird, Clark on the other hand...... 

he upped his game in the last few games. Probably been tapped up and actually put some effort into his game.

Wages might rule Aird out anyway. We were warned about Paul Paton being the antichrist but he has turned out to be some sort of favourite mad uncle to the rest of the squad. Couldn't accuse Aird of lacking in self belief anyway! I'd thought for a while he could be the player they were talking about getting as he's someone Neilson was bound to punt as soon as he got new faces in and Craw/Ross talked about it in a way that would suggest it was someone the fans already knew (and it wasn't going to be Cardle and Adam Hammill is probably even less of a Crawford-type signing).

For his ability i'd welcome him back in a second, but controversially i'd say the same for Clark. We did miss both of them when they left

oh and that Stranraer article is just embarrassing, obviously it's only one side of the story but either way it was petty and arrogant of our management at the time to say the least!
