Walking Down The Halbeath Road


Recommended Posts

Still early days yet, Grants only been in the job about 5 weeks. Think we will have some decent signings to come, like others said the better loan players tend to be around the first team squad late into the window.

If we are like this 4th August I‘ll maybe start to panic.

Possibly waiting on if Nisbet goes or not as well, windfall from any potential sale could drastically improve our budget.

I’ve heard people saying that we’ll have these good signings coming in but what is that based on?

We do have an important competitive fixture in 6 days,  and unless some of our injuries have cleared up we’ll have 14 players.  8 that are 21 or younger.

Exactly. I don’t agree with using League Cup games as extended pre-season but even if that’s the plan, you need new signings to play in them.

Surely no one expects us to be even close to the title with Wilson and Pybus as a midfield pairing? Just rolling the dice and hoping some youth players fill the gaps on loan is thoroughly underwhelming.

The squad as a whole is probably the weakest we have had for the League cup  since the introduction of the group stage. 

Starting 11 isn't far of being decent but the drop off is huge. 

 

I can't ever remember playing a competitive fixture unsure if we'd fill a bench and certain the youth players who'd normally be called in to fill spots on the bench would instead be starters.

Edit,  the only other time that comes close is when we were under a signing ban towards the end of admin.

Rumours, conjecture, speculation: you know, the usual pre-season stuff.

Football fans often have tunnel vision and look at their own club in isolation.

I've just had a look at the confirmed squads thread and everyone bar Killie is in a similar position as us - i.e. short in at least one are of the pitch (Morton appear not to even have a GK).

Perhaps the difficulties in getting people in this year are impacting everyone, but regardless we'll all be fishing in the same pond which makes it a seller's market for the players. 

And it should also be noted that we didn't have a midfield worth the name from November onwards last year and still sneaked the playoffs.

It honestly doesn’t feel like the season starts this Saturday. Would imagine we’ll only be getting PPV stream access for the away games in the league cup. Hopefully some of our fans can get into the home games.

I think I’ve mentioned a few times that our gaping flaws will not be massively damaging due to the lack of quality across the division.

We were also fucking garbage for the most part November onwards, so that’s not a great pitch tbh.

Seems a bit odd that there hasn't been any communication about this, hopefully something comes out today.

Yeah, given they know there will be no rule changes before the 19th, I don’t know why there’s no communication about games before that date - particularly ones this weekend/next midweek.

I know Hearts have announced they’re only allowed 500 fans at Tynecastle, so I don’t know why others seem to be staying so quiet.

Thistle have got a friendly against Rangers tonight with (I think) 1000 tickets available to season ticket holders only. I’d assume that we’ll wait and see how that goes before announcing the arrangements for Saturday’s fixture against yourselves.

That said, I’d be very surprised if it was anything other than a stream for away fans. And most likely ST holders only ticket sales again, as we’re somewhere in the region of 1500 STs sold right now and I can’t see us even being allowed that number of fans in.
