Take your own advice champ. Evil board ffs.

It was exaggeration for effect, a common device used in writing. I wasn't actually saying that anyone claimed this. 

But I'm sure you knew that.

Or it was exaggerating reasonable complaints to make them seem outlandish or ludicrous. Something a simpleton would do.

The Coley one was debunked. Not surprised to see some over reactions. Team playing poorly = absolutely everything is wrong at the club, the classic 'something stinks' nonsense, with McNamara now apparently overseeing all signings in cahoots with an evil board.

Let's calm it down a bit. 

 

You're not over reacting though.

You wouldn't take Moyes? He averages 1.5 point a match and kept West ham up. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't break the bank to get him but if he applied I would almost certainly shortlist him.

Holy f**k you were serious 😂😂

The issue isn't whether we think he's a good enough manager for us, the issue is that he is so hilariously above our level that we thought you were joking.

Think Zola and O'Neill are out of a job while we're making ridiculous suggestions.

You’d be lucky to get Martin Canning.

Caldwell punted. Crawford has a worse record.

Yup. Much worse. I just took a quick look. Caldwell had a win rate of 38.1%*.

Crawford's is 28.57%*. Absolutely grim stuff. Caldwell being punted helps Partick for Saturday. Their players and fans will be lifted now.

 

*Think it's just for league, as it's from Wikipedia which usually only gives such stats for League games; if we include stuff like League Cup against dross then both would have a slightly higher percentage, but not by much.

EDIT: In fact no, Crawford's record would be even worse as his 3 League Cup wins would be wiped out by the 2 League Cup defeats and the defeats in the Scottish and Challenge Cup.

If it was anyone else, he'd be gone by now. 

Inevitable defeat on Saturday to continue the misery.

Going by his current record*, crunching the number suggests that Crawford would only be able to reach a maximum of 35 points this season.

 

That’s a total that would have seen us finish in the following position in past seasons;

 

18/19: 10th

17/18: 8th (Brechin finished on 4 and Dumbarton on 30)

16/17: 9th

15/16: 8th (Alloa finished on 21 and Livingston 31)

 

It’s relegation/playoff form, unless some club suffers a massive collapse worse than Falkirk last season. We’d basically be relying on someone else to stop us going down.

 

 

 

*P: 28 W: 8 D:4 L:16 to date

- 28.5% win rate. 14.1% draws. 57.4% losses.

- 36 games in a season

- This would mean we’d approximately win 10, draw 5 and lose 21

I don't think it's bonkers to still be backing him, we're nowwhere near the stage where we should be taking the financial hit and sacking him, absolutely nowhere close to that.

Your telling me the romantic attachment that fans hold with a club isn't also shared by potential employees 😉

I mentioned Moyes because the OP of the list said they wouldn't have anyone on the list as the manager when obviously Moyes would be more than good enough but an extremely unlikely choice.

I'm a bit late but sad news about JJ hopefully he makes a full recovery, by no stretch of the imagination was he a very good manager for us but probably one of our most important managers?

I did seriously suggest him as a manager who would be more than good enough to manage us, I didn't seriously expect him to be in the dugout any time soon...

The board are brilliant apart from footballing decisions but I feel that they must take some responsibility for another bad decision.

Bit of a shiter that they are the board of a football club then.

If it wasn’t for them there wouldn’t be any Dunfermline athletic.

I'd take Davie Moyes but next to no chance he would come to the Championship. McCall like stellaboz says did a decent job at Motherwell. 

Whatever happens Greg Sheilds should be allowed to continue as the reserves manager

Davie Moyes? Are you on the wind up min? Even if he was willing to come it would cost tens of thousands a week to pay him.
