Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Recommended Posts

Ach well you’ve got us on tv on Friday night


Hopefully, assuming we lose, that’s the end of Crawford, which would make me worried if I was an opposition fan - there’s the potential we employ someone who is competent.

If we're playing two in there, it's Wilson and Turner for me. 

The only option.  You can’t afford to have players in a midfield 2 that aren’t going to cover the ground or be involved both in attack and defence.  I don’t think anyone else in the squad is capable of that.

We certainly have a good squad of players for this level. Performances against Raith and Hearts at home have shown what we’re capable of. This is what makes it even harder to accept we’ve won 1 away game all season and only won 3 of our last 12 league games overall.

We’ve failed to score in 5 of our last 7 games. Not got a single away goal in 2021, having played 4 away games. There’s just no argument to say that Crawford is doing his job to an acceptable standard at the moment.

He’ll be in charge until at least the end of the season. The board can get away with being more ‘patient’ when fans aren’t their to voice their frustrations.

We are terrible to watch, set up so negatively every game (other than the Raith/Hearts games) and have no answer to going behind. AJ found a way to play against our 4-4-2 in the second half today and rather than changing things, Crawford made 3 like-for-like changes meaning we created nothing. It’s getting to the stage we’d be struggling to get PATG fans and our away support would be very low in numbers.

A panic picnic would be a good laugh.

Good start to the season is papering over the cracks. That was the last game of the 2/3 round of fixtures. I really wouldn’t be surprised to see us continue to slip and QoS taking advantage which would be an absolute disgrace in all honesty.

It is, they hardly had a pre season and have a squad of veterans, youngsters and loan signings. Couldnt fill a bench two weeks ago.

Perhaps our problem weirdly is having a good squad. Too much choice. We've changed the midfield almost every week.

That's not the problem.

The problem is the manager unfortunately.

Yeah, you're right i do think we have too many players in certain areas though and that's a problem we've had for years.

Mayo, whittaker, Allan, mcinroy, Turner, Wilson and arguably Martin and Fraser Murray. 

Whittaker a coach to players who can contribute more than him alongside a keeper coach who flaps around most weeks and dair who come from the juniors.

Whole thing seems amateurish

That makes zeros sense whatsoever.

It’s management of the players. Not that I’d want him but Dick Campbell would be thriving with a squad like that at his disposal.

It’s nowhere near good enough what we have seen recently.

Many of those players can, and have, played more than one position. That's a good thing and I think the squad is fine.

A player's ability a measure of how they will be a coach. There are so many examples of good players as shite coaches and managers and shite players as good coaches and managers, and vice versa. Dair played professional football for years. What is your point there.

Massively disagree that it seems amateurish. Think that's absolute nonsense.

I mean that Crawford talks up the club and setup yet look at the state of us. It's all just meaningless shite, arbroath and alloa are far better organised despite having a part time setup and peanuts to spend. 

Amatuerish

Out of curiosity are people also expecting Shields and Dair to be removed from their posts too? Are there any feasible candidates out there? Does anyone think the board will actually do it whilst we occupy a play off spot?

No, and they shouldn't. They should allow the current management to see the season out then not renew their contract(s). Unsure about Shields and Dair.

Regarding candidates, I would suggest:

- Stephen Robinson

- Stewart Petrie

But would say invite applications. I doubt there would be a dearth of them. I really wish the club would have made an offer to Tommy Wright in January. It might have been that he wasn't interested in the role at all, or that we couldn't afford him, but it would have been immense if we got him.

Stewart Petrie for me 100%

If we could afford Robinson I would love to have him given his experience at top-level Scottish football, but Petrie just seems to be the natural choice, and I don’t think Robinson would be enticed by Championship wages. Shite talking like this when Crawford will most likely be manager until end of the season, but he is out his depth and we need a new man to take us forward.

Petrie has done an unreal job at Montrose and it is probably a good time now for him to step up, but his personal life and current job might not be worth going full-time for though.
