Walking Down The Halbeath Road


Recommended Posts

See how he gets on. Reviews from QoS fans aren’t great, but we’ve all seen players do well at some clubs and poor at others. As I say, glad we’re finally getting business done.

Getting a sinking feeling about next season now. Expected better signings than  QOS cast offs. 

Really disappointed that the manager is talking about winning the league and then signing folk like Dan Pybus. 

Seen Pybus a few times and thought he was gash, slow talentless pish.  That aligned with QOS fans opinions,  who have watched him many times and I really think this is an utterly  pish signing.

Just watched Pybus’ interview.

“Massive club” also talks about how the mentality is different at Dunfermline “you’re actually expected to play well and win games”. Says he wasn’t given a chance to prove he can play football at Queens and goes back to talk about how we’ll be expected to win games, which obviously wasn’t the case at QoS.

I like Pybus.

Aye, that well known tactic of telling your players to misplace passes.

Under AJ, Shaun Byrne didn’t look like a technically good midfielder at Dunfermline. Went on to prove otherwise. He’s never really asked his midfielders to play the type of football we’re looking to play. Pybus has been on trial for more than a week. If he hadn’t shown enough ability, I don’t think we’d have signed him.

Think the reaction from fans is poor. Give the guy a chance. As I say, there are countless examples of players being poor/underwhelming at some teams and starred in others.

What does it matter what numpties like us do or don’t say about players? If he’s a decent player then he’ll show it and if he’s average AF then he’ll show that too.

The reaction to his signing from fans makes absolutely zero difference.

Eh that’s exactly what he looked like so that’s where I’ll stop reading.

I always felt like he gave the ball away too often and was caught out of position a lot. Being lightweight was definitely his biggest issue, but he didn’t look anything like the player he went on to become and couldn’t get a game ahead of Geggan/Falkingham/McCabe towards the end of his time here. He’s gone on to be a better midfielder than all 3.

Regardless of individual opinions, the point still stands. I’m not going to start throwing a tantrum over signing a 23 year old midfielder because he was reportedly underwhelming in an AJ team. I really don’t understand the overreaction here. Why can’t people just give him a chance and see how he works out in our team/system?

The fact is, he's shown nothing in 50 odd games at a smaller club then signs for us, a team banging on about winning the league this year. Not really sure how you don't get the reaction tbh.

put him in a better team, in possibly a different role as he talks about in his interview and see what he does.

the overreaction was totally expected, it will be the same with whoever else we sign.

 

Nah, pretty much most signings were welcomed in recent times.  The reaction is due to this signing not meeting the same standard.
