Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Although we ultimately didn’t succeed that season, look at the difference between then and now. Genuine quality in the team and fantastic support every second Saturday. A real feel-good factor at EEP. Clark, Morris, Aird, McManus, L Martin, Cardle (at the peak of his powers) … that team should have achieved a lot more. Look at us now. It’s a joke we’ve went from heading upwards to the sheer desperation we’re in now in just 3 years.

A great start and a great run in to the end of that league season. Last time I genuinely felt good about where we were going as a club.

Why on earth is he even getting a chance to turn this around? We’ve seen absolutely hee haw to suggest that. If anything it’s been getting worse and worse every week. He’s built a heavily unbalanced side with a midfield like a melt in the middle fondant. Every game we are second to every ball and we get walked over with ease, genuinely not seen us win a 50/50 in there all season. We need Iain Wilson back and another CM and goalkeeper pronto or it’s a relegation battle this season. It’s a fucking circus.

That’s what McArthur will hit out with in a statement after ICT touch us on Saturday.

“Remember, we were close to liquidation so just be thankful you have a club to support”

Aye, but it was the several thousands of people that saved it, not just a couple of charlatans on the board. Think this is what they forget: it was the hard-working fans that saved the club, and they are haemorrhaging thousands every season with their bad decisions.

I’d be stunned if the crowd on Saturday is any more than 2300. ICT will bring a few hundred to make it look as if there was an alright attendance perhaps, but that’ll not give the full picture of how bad the home support will be. When was the last time there was under 2k Pars fans at a home league game? I’m really struggling to think if there has been in my lifetime as a fan! Was there maybe a couple of dire crowds during admin?

Think we were below 2k a couple of times the season we finished 7th in league 1. But that’s certainly a sign of how bad things are amongst the fans, if we’re looking at that level of support again.

Nope. I can’t think of any circumstances where any team in the league would be happy with the start we’ve had, regardless of ambitions before the start of the season.

2-2 away to Morton
0-3 at home to Thistle
0-3 at hone to Arbroath
1-3 away to Ary

That’s not acceptable for anyone.

Watched the Ayr & Arbroath highlights and genuinely think 3 road cones would do a better job than your centre half’s n keeper , quite worrying

1574 in February 2015 against Brechin. We lost, obviously, 1-0.

That was a Tuesday night right enough, and by far the worst we got. Lowest after that was 1951 against Stranraer on 11 April 2015.

A traffic cone wouldn’t have been shoved off the ball as easily by Adeloye for their third.

Fais scored a beautiful solo goal. Miss him so much.

Ah, thank you. I did have it in the back of my mind that there was a couple of games where the attendance really was pathetically low! We’ll be getting crowds like that shortly the way we are going.

You've got to admire the loyalty of the Dunfermline Board towards their manager, they know that he will turn things around before long. I remember when Man Utd fans were baying for Alex Ferguson's blood and look what happened to them!

Sir Alex Ferguson had won a European Cup with Aberdeen by that point in his managerial career. Enough of the p*sh SAF comparisons.

I am planning to protest by not going to the game. As a season ticket holder I think having those who have already paid their money not show up on match day is the most effective protest.

A crowd of 1k will say more than walking out before the board even take their seats and I won't be able to stick to the fan code of conduct by not swearing 🙄

It sucks not supporting the players (or the ones that at least deserve it) but doing nothing as fans is simply echoing what the board are doing!

They won't care, you will be counted as in attendance as the seat is already bought and paid for.

If the majority of ST holders didn’t show up then this would be effective but otherwise they have your money and you’ll be included in the “official” crowd.

Sounds like I need to go and raise my blood pressure then. Im off to find a old bed sheet.

They already have your money as a season ticket holder. It is more about making a statement in front of the board so they can see in full view the fans' disappointment after years and years of poor decision making.

New Q&A with Meggle has been posted by the club. Basically, he’s blaming the players as well.

He talks a lot about individual errors no one has made more costly individual errors than Graham and yet the manager picks him.
