To be fair Levein was, as far as I recall, literally doing the Rovers job for nothing. He didn’t have a contact, certainly. When he came in he was upfront about how if something came along he wasn’t going to be hanging around.

And considering his replacement was mcglynn we did not too bad out of it.

Did Levein not recommend McGlynn to the board?

Staggering, yet not at all surprising, he is still in a job.

Fans need to take a stand on Saturday and make our feelings known. This truly is unacceptable. From the transparency and feel-good factor in 2016 to this garbage in the space of 5 years. Fans once again out the loop with no transparency at all.

Good luck explaining that to a future employer, who will have highlighted it on your CV and then file your application in the bin straight after interview (if you get that far).
So it's really not just football where employees are expected to contribute a reasonable commitment of time before jumping ship. 
You don't half talk some pish, and this is right up there with your usual.

Well without being yer da about it all, I've sent an email off to the board. Can't really do much more from here, but we need to share the feelings clearly whether we get to games or not. 

Did you write it in English or German?

I emailed “the board” when Kenny was in charge. Can’t remember what it said but was probably not too complimentary about him.

Well yes, it wasnt a criticism of Levein. And by the same token, if he is offered a decent full time management role now he will bite at it and be away from Brechin within 5 mins. The notion that he wouldnt take a job at Dunfermline because of a hobby project with his pal at Brechin is fanciful.

Just watched the goals from Saturday. Holy shit. OFW just giving us a reminder that he's every bit a shite as last season. Two utterly shite goalkeepers we have

Graham has got to be up there as the worst defender to ever play for the Pars. Those mistakes a truly awful.

How the board can watch the weekly keystone cops act at the back every week and not act upon it is mind boggling. Ineptitude throughout the club from players, coaching team and board room.

What a shambles.

There's noises about some fans getting ready to protest at this coming home game. Not sure what it'll entail.

The SLO Drew Main can be easily contacted if fans want to make their feelings known. Not sure what he can do about anything being honest but at least he's contactable.

I think it's going to get pretty ugly pretty quickly if Grant is still here on Saturday and we end up skelped again.

What's the issue with Dom Thomas? I've seen him play v us a few times and he always impressed. Definitely a player that could make a difference even from the bench, yet he didnt get on v us when you were playing so poorly. As an outsider its perplexing he isnt getting games

Peter grant happened.

Any other questions about the mad state of affairs, please use that as the answer,  its nearly certainly him.

Peter Grant being a complete tool and playing tactics that don’t suit 90% of our players whilst also not playing our best players (Dom Thomas included) might have something to do with the “issue”

One of the few encouraging things about Peter Grant at the start of the season was his insistence that he was going to play a system that suited the players, not shoehorning them into a system he wants to use.


…that is precisely what he’s done.

Cheers lads. For what it's worth, I think you're one result away from a decent season. Far too good a team (on paper) to be in the relegation places

I'm as fucked off as anyone about the current state of affairs but I won't be walking out and i hope those who walk out respect the right of those who choose to stay and watch the game.

Good luck to those who take this stance tho. I just want to watch my team.
