After all, football really is that simple. 

Many of your chums insist the wind was the decisive factor, because Arbroath recruit players based on them being used to it etc. Match reports say Gaston was barely troubled. Why? When we got pumped on Wednesday, and in the 2nd game against Hearts, and even against QoS, we simply weren't good enough. Particularly Wednesday where I can offer no mitigation. Maybe you just weren't good enough yesterday and it had little to do with conditions, which were the same in both halves. A bit more humility from some of your brethren would go a long way.

Obsessed by the big Fife team.

You could have written down Arbroaths tactics before we turned up and yet despite seeing what worked our manager thought he knew better than someone who plays at that ground every two weeks and decided to try playing a different way. It wasn’t just that our players despite being full time were second to every ball and lost most 50/50 challenges. Crawford needed to try playing like Arbroath and anyone with any brains would have scouted them playing in the wind to see how to do it plus try things in training like playing into a wind. Instead we got something that would get laughed off the training manual of the amateur game.

This plus telling players that the game shouldn’t go ahead, he messed up tactics and with their heads. We were beat before anyone kicked a ball.

Yeah, you can’t just completely change your tactics to copy another side.  Nor can you try to randomly find a training pitch that happens to have that level of wind we faced yesterday.   Not unless part of the German investment is a massive wind machine.

  You do have a point about getting the mindset wrong(instead of ‘the refs made an arse of things,  here’s what we need to do to get past it’

Noticed someone posting some of his goals on Twitter, forgot about that great passing move at Stenny, what a goal. If that's scored in the Premiership it's talked about for years. Last time really didn't work out well but it was one of the worst Pars teams I've ever seen, from the keeper to the striker.

I'd take him back until the end of the season if it's on offer, just for the craic like.

Rovers fans are just absolutely gutted because they can no longer post the photo of Vaughan as it now carries zero relevance, this also wipes out 95% of their patter from derby match threads.

This coupled with the fact that the apparent best rovers team in years, by their own admission, has failed to beat us so far this season (including a 2 goal arse collapse) makes for great reading on any Dunfermline related thread.

One good season against absolute diddies in League 1. He must have made a good amount of money off Dundee on the back of that.

He ran Dundee United ragged on the first game of the 18/19 season then did absolutely nothing noteworthy from there on in.

Did he manage a league goal for us in the Championship? Or just a couple against Brechin in the league cup. That was his first game back, absolutely hammered them and there was a feeling that the good times were back, oh how wrong were we!

The Raith forums after the 3 aforementioned defeats were loaded with "humility" right enough. They are such a level-headed fair-minded support...………..

Would not take Fais back. He's a jobber at best now. He fucked it for himself.

Maybe for Dunfermline. He was excellent for half a season with us. I think most QoS fans would take him back in a heartbeat. His departure at the same time as McCrorie was part of the reason for last season's collapse before Covid saved us.

Scored a penalty down the Cowden end against Morton which I wildly celebrated.

Tom Lang has signed a pre-contract deal with the Wee Team. Remember him? Must have been absolute shite if Devine and Ashcroft were keeping him out the team.

The rumours are that footballing ability never came in to it and there was some sort of falling out with Crawford.

Bit fucked off that this season has turned to complete meh after the start we made.  The last two weeks have been a complete snapshot of Crawfords tenure, false dawn performances against Hearts and Raith followed by how many more garbage losses or games we don’t ever look like scoring in. Completely scunnered with it at this point and rapidly losing motivation to go through the hassle of buying the streams.
