Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Recommended Posts

Even if we somehow won the playoffs, Crawford should not be manager next season.

He has to go regardless of how our season ends.

The shortened season may work to our advantage here as it's entirely feasible, given Crawford's tenure so far, that we manage to go on an 8 game winning streak and win promotion.

However we've been horrendous since November, we should have punted him weeks ago.

agree with this.

Crawford should leave regardless. The "football" we play is horrendous to watch.

We've lost to them already this season & were lucky to beat them at EEP last time out & they have an experienced manager who has always caused us bother with any team he brings to EEP..............so thank f*ck we've got someone keeping us up to date with how good Arbroath are.

We've hammered Forfar and Arbroath at EEP when AJ was manager.

Crawford will stay if we finish 4th regardless of what happens in the play-offs.

That's begging for relegation trouble.

We did it for AJ and I'm confident we will do it for Crawford. I'm pretty sure the remit for this season would have been to achieve a play-off place. Unless the board grow a set, accept the reality that the football is absolute turd and that we only achieved a play-off due to how crap the league is, if we do indeed finish 4th, then they'll hopefully do the right thing and relieve him of his duties.

With Johnston we were playing pretty well for the most part, even if we did have some stinkers. The gamble of extending his contract was understandable, even though it turned out to be the wrong move.  He had a ceiling, and the gamble was that he hadn't hit it yet. He had of course, as was proven. His signings over the summer were rank and didn't address key losses.

There isn't a gamble with keeping Crawford on though. The evidence is all against him. He just isn't up to it and, with a regular length season next time, we will be in severe trouble. His squad management has to be called in to question now due to the shambles of our midfield. At this level, we will be a stepping stone for some players, and if he takes the huff over that every time, he'll be taking a lot of huffs and wasting a lot of money punting players and scrambling to find replacements halfway through the season.

Ultimately he's a shitebag as a manager, and that is neither effective nor good to watch. With fans back in next season, they'll be quick to let their feelings be known, as most have run out of patience with him. I can see folk holding off on season tickets too if he's still in place.

The club will stagnate at best with Crawford in charge.

Is this post aimed at me? If it is, I'm simply starting an opinion on how I think the QOS and Arbroath game will differ, despite the fact that QOS are a higher ranked team.

Absolutely no need for your sarcastic response.

Can't be arsed checking but I recall being 3-0 down to Dick Campbells' Forfar at half time at EEP towards the end of Potters' reign. Any victory against a Dicks' teams is always well earned.

Apologise for calling you out then DA. I couldn't see what post you were responding to and thought it matched my post earlier.

I've just read your post & can see why mine looks like a dig at you, it was merely a reponse to Raith_Raver for pointing out quite patronisingly that "Arbroath are no push-overs"...........

0-3 down after 36 minutes. El Bak scored in the 78th minute to make it 1-3.
 
Have a week look at this run of results:

We still beat Ayr 4 times though. That was back when we used to pump them regularly. 
I was absolutely furious at the 5-1 defeat in Stranraer as I had £5 on 5-0.

I remember El Bak scoring an absolute screamer against us that season at Somerset. Even when you were absolute guff we couldn’t get anything against you.

The overhead kick yeah.

I’m almost certain he battered in an absolute screamer the previous year though. I remember Moffat being minging though as either Jeffries or Potter had him playing as a winger.

The overhead kick was one of the best away games I've ever had, fucking tremendous trip. @DA Baracus do you remember anything ?!
