Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Oh and the reason we didn't attract any better managers is because the post was never opened to applications.

Very simple stuff but D.A.F.C. is hinting at something sinister or similar due to his strange agenda to make out that absolutely everything is worst case scenario.

Calm yourself. I’m not trying to twist facts it’s a question I would ask the board why is it that smaller clubs with smaller budgets seem to get more oit of the budget and seem better organised. I would argue the two part time sides are more organised and effective than us.

 Most other fans of other clubs know we have arguably one of the worst managers in our league. It was also debated on tv last night with the same outcome.

We can’t afford sentiment.

Wondering why Alloa can attract three or more high quality managers and we end up with a guy who failed at east fife?
We never took applications when Crawford was appointed due to implementing the new footballing set up.

As you've posted across numerous threads, it's because Crawford isn't good enough.

That's it. Nothing more.

New as in shite?

Why are you so desperate for absolutely everything at the club to be going wrong?

Not sure how long you've supported the Pars mate but it sounds like you're not coping very well with the experience.

Presumably he means Ross, Goodwin and Grant. 

Goodwin was a player at Alloa which is why he stepped up when Ross moved on. So they didn't 'attract' him at all.

Jack Ross applied for the vacant Alloa post, which is how they 'attracted' him. It was his first managerial role and Alloa were relegated. He was there for less than a year before leaving.

Peter Grant also applied for the vacant Alloa post which is how they 'attracted' him. It very much remains to be seen if he's a good manager or not given he's been in charge for 7 league games. Before last night they were bottom as well. Grant was also part of the atrocious Scotland set up under McLeish. Absolutely no one was touting him as a good manager. Folk laughed when Alloa appointed him. His team were excellent last night but it remains to be seen if he's a good manager. 

 

In short D.A.F.C. is once again twisting facts, if not outright lying, for some odd reason.

Interestingly, I don't think any of the managers who've applied have gotten our job, they've been hand picked. Jim had verbally said he wanted it. Would come closest to an application but Darren Young would've been the boss had Albion Rovers not wanted an extortionate amount.

Yup, Crawford needs to go.

He signed a decent squad but isn't good enough as a manager.

My patience with him has expired.

Don't really let football get to me as much these days but I have to admit that I'm a bit pissed off by this tonight.

We really are a soft touch for letting points slip. I can accept that shit happens in football but we either don't take chances like the Alloa game, Drop a two goal lead or lose another late goal like today and Inverness. 

We now have two tough games next and the confidence could really slip if we don't pull off a shock in one of those games.  Really need to start seeing bigger steps of improvement than we are.

Ryan needs to start against Ayr. Whether that's instead of or with Nisbit. Hopefully Paton is back. Cochrane looked decent today, Beadling and Turner not so much.

I really dont want to see the crowd turn and start abusing Crawford so I think with the break we should look to replace him now.
Theres no chance of him improving us. Especially with us playing the top two next.
I would keep shields and bring in an experienced manager with championship experience.

It’s a crazy division tbf, had we held on we’d be sitting 5th ffs. With the fixtures next week with a win(or even a draw) we’ll most likely be 6th or 7th after the first quarter, pretty much as expected. Had we been expected to be in the play-offs or challenging then we’ve of had a shit start but we weren’t, the board and management have been pretty open that this is a building season.

We’ve taken points from all 4/5 of our bottom 6 competitors with most of those games being away from home. A win or even a point next week will likely have us 6th or 7th after the first quarter, exactly where we would expect to be. Had we been expected to make the playoffs this year then the frustrations would make more sense, but for me whilst we’d like to being doing better we’re not far away from getting the results we need

As frustrated as people are, this is pretty much spot on. If we were to take 0 points from the next 4 matches we'd probably be looking at a change of manager. The Arbroath and QOS games could prove to be very important for Stevie and the rest of the footballing set up.

Why is 6th or 7th expected? Which 6 teams do you think we should have no expectation of being ahead this season? The Dundee clubs I'll give you. Inverness and Ayr I could almost accept after last season. But Morton? QoS? The part-time clubs? Partick, the only club currently worse than us? I really don't understand how folk are so happy to write off this season when the league is so shite. There is no reason the squad we have assembled shouldn't be 5th and looking to break into the play-offs.

This pretty much.

Regardless of whether it's a "building season" or not, we judge ourselves against the teams in the league and we are under performing against the teams around us.

To celebrate "taking points" against the bottom 4/5 isn't something to be celebrating, it's also not even correct, we've not taken any points off of Arbroath this season.

Our only victory is against the only team below us in the table while they were managerless, we've drawn with Queens away and at home to Alloa and lost to Arbroath and we're supposed to be happy about that?

I, along with the majority of fans, expected us to be aiming for fourth but probably end up 5th/6th, currently we're failing to avoid a relegation battle. What part of this is remotely "on target"?
