Walking Down The Halbeath Road

When was the last time the Pars had a proper recruitment process for choosing the next manager? There wasn't one when McIntyre, Potter or Crawford got the gig and pretty sure JJ and AJ were just asked if they'd like the job.

I'm sure there was a recruitment process when AJ was hired. Almost certain that Mikey that did the graphics for social media made a poster announcing Billy Davies as manager along with others. Obviously AJ got the job, but it seems like there were a good few in the frame.

Definitely was, had various favourites in the next manager market at the time. Fluctuated between Gary Bollan and Gus McPherson mainly. Stevie Aitken was quiet heavily linked as well.

Did we actually hold interviews, though?


Yes. A shortlist was drawn up and selected candidates were interviewed. AJ was selected as the best man for the job, following the interviews.

He was absolutely the right guy at that time, interviews or not.


Of course he was. But that’s about his level. Also, my left leg could’ve got us promoted with that budget in that league.

Wondering why Alloa can attract three or more high quality managers and we end up with a guy who failed at east fife?
Alloa fc last 3 managers didn't apply for the posts . All 3 were chosen by the Chairman and his Board . Ross was out a job . Goodwin was a player at the club and Grant was out a job . Goodwin was on the pars shortlist when AJ went but your board wanted SC

Crawford was appointed literally the next day so they didn't even have a "shortlist"

If you keep trying you might type a useful post before you reach 500.

Sure, but managers have had these budgets before and utterly blown it. When he signed Cardle I knew right then we'd win it.

We've played 22 home games in the league at East End Park since start of 18/19. That's 66 points available. We've taken just 20, winning 5 and drawing 5.

We have failed to score in 12 of those games. In those 22 games we have scored 16 goals and conceded 24.

Total number of league wins at East End Park since the start of 18/19 by team;

Pars - 5

Dundee United - 4

Ross County - 2

Falkirk - 2

Inverness - 2

Ayr United - 1

Morton - 1

Queen of the South - 1

 

Exceedingly grim stuff.

New life is needing breathed in to EEP. If we're sticking out with Crawford for the rest of the season, I really hope QoS, Partick and the part-timers have, somehow, worse seasons than us. 

All wishful thinking.

Crawford is is a chancer, you can see his lack of confidence in interviews, he looks terrified, like he's been caught shagging his wife's sister.
Has anyone listened to one of his pre match interviews and though "Oooft, buzzin for the match now!" ?
He knows he's out his depth but he'll wring it out for as long as he can just like every other charlatan we invite back through the doors.
I'm actually scared we get rid of Crawford in case we end up with the fat lying snake that is Nipper.

"Fat lying snake"??? That's a bit harsh, what did he do to you?

I am so confused why Scott Thomson is suddenly involved in the discussion, why he would ever replace Crawford as manager of Dunfermline Athletic and certainly why he'd ever be described as a "fat lying snake"?

Jack Ross punted by Sunderland there. Emphatic return for himself and Potter with Shields staying as a coach.

Finances might be an issue here (as well as the board *actually* punting Crawford) but I have a strange 'gut feeling' about the above prediction.

If the board had any sense they would end the failed Crawford experiment and offer Ross the job immediately.
