Walking Down The Halbeath Road


Recommended Posts

No surprise. If the likes of Tynecastle aren’t allowed more than the standard capacity restrictions, there’s no way we would be. Only 3 games at reduced capacity though, given the restriction on capacities is supposed to end on the 9th August.

Seeing as the manager clearly doesn’t give a f**k about the competition, I’m not sure it matters.

The window does close at the end of August but we’ll have played four league games already by that point. Then you’re needing them to bed in right away or there’s just more wasted time.

Aye, end of august is fine if your bringing in a loan or two.  It’s absolutely not ok when we need half a squad.

The way he’s talking we could have played the first round of fixtures before we get started.   You can’t win titles with that approach.

Strikes me as a bit odd that first 2 games in the betfred (and against 2 most difficult opposition) are away from home. It's not [email protected]

We’ve got out 2 ‘easiest’ games at home and they’re the first 2 games too. It’s a strange way they’ve done it this year.

PG doesn’t half slaver some pish btw.

Also thinks players should be able to play twice a day, seemed to argue with himself and then bemoaned the use of the term “trialist”. It’s like talking to some old lad in the pub.

I liked the bit about how he doesn’t mind it being a working progress cos his working progress at alloa got to the quarter finals,.

Forgotten they also got relegated,  so I wouldn’t exactly say it was a successful approach.

Peter Grant is the man. We'll do well. 

What is “well”?

Crawford was massively out of his depth and still got us 4th so anything less than a sustained title challenge would be going backwards IMO.

Getting relegated doesn’t matter dafty, as long as you have a lot of possession and play football the right way.

Challenging for the title. Like he's already stated in his first post job media  interview. That is his intent. His main focus, regards delivering that intent. 

I like clarity regarding ambition and intent, he's provided that.

I'm more often positive than negative about new Managers coming in, because being honest I've been around long enough to have seen some Managers not being expected to succeed at certain clubs and end up doing so. 

Anyway, why wouldn't I offer my support to him?, he's been chosen to deliver us some level of success, therefore I aim to give the fella the benefit of the doubt rather than  chosing to chib him on any opportunity before we've kicked off this season in earnest. 

If he fails, I'll be vocal, and maybe even irrational if we're being scudded every week, but that's worst case scenario for us as fans. Nah, I'm actually looking forward to seeing what transpires.

I'll reserve judgement for the results. 

From what I see in his interviews, he's setting big targets, wants players to push themselves and talks up his team rather than opponents.

Yeah it's a bit of a blast from the past but the modern day sanitised personalities and interviews have hardly been a roaring success under Crawford and AJ.

I'm not sure his public confidence and ambition will sit comfortably with the current board. The last few seasons we have been the victim of a lack of ambition and it would appear, on the face of it, they were satisfied with the completely meh season we had last year (given their support for crawford after we were scudded by the wee team in the playoffs). 

I think Grant's positive approach and clear ambition for the club is a breath of fresh air however time will tell if it's just all talk, hopefully not.

Saying something doesn't mean it's going to happen.  Me saying I'm going to pump Mila Kunis tonight doesn't mean it's going to happen.
