Walking Down The Halbeath Road


Recommended Posts

Robertson will be our manager by this time next week I think. Just a hunch. Think he is the only man to get us out of this and we have to give him carte blanche to turn this around.

From what I heard yesterday he is very much in contention. Doesn't really fit with what he said in the Courier mind you.

I’d really hope we have a manager in place by next Saturday.

 

We really don’t have much time to waste.

You’d think we’re probably gonna need at least 9 or 10 wins to stay up from our remaining 23 matches, which seems a near impossible task at present.

Left sided midfielder, couple centre mids, a left-back and a goalkeeper are needed. Guys like Edwards aren’t good enough. Ryan Dow has been getting a free pass all season as well. Kennedy is just a total luxury player that we can’t afford during a relegation scrap. So, not only do we desperately need a new manager, we need to clear out a lot of the shite we have and replace with better players. It’s a seriously difficult task for whoever is coming in because, contrary to the narrative, the squad isn’t good enough and a lot of changes are needed but player’s contracts may not allow that change to be made so the new man might be stuck with the shite Grant has left. I really hope not though. Just don’t see where these wins are coming from.

I find it quite surprising that the crowd inside EEP has stayed on side tbh.

I reckon the vociferous boo boys are no longer coming and the rest of us range from supportive enough at the beginning of the match to completely apathetic by the end.

I had no interest in booing on Saturday, had no interest full stop really. There was a wee dog rolling about on the grass in the graveyard for a good 5 minutes which was a highlight.

This 100%. Folk have given up, the club drove people to that point. It’s up to them to get fans back on side, I won’t hold my breath though.

Yeah, I had no interest in booing. It’s already a bad enough situation and it won’t do them any favours. You could see they were trying different things but they just haven’t got it. Folk need to realise how bad that squad is and big changes are needed. Confidence is also a big issue of course.

Wouldn't blame anybody for booing that second half. Complete arse collapse when we should've went on to win at 1-1. 

Couldn't give a shit what the players feel or think anymore to be honest. The fans have been served up utter shite by that lot all season. Wish we could punt the lot of them. I'm now past the stage of pandering to them and worrying about how the poor wee souls are affected.

I love Ryan Dow but holy f**k he’s been atrocious since he returned from injury. Not sure if it’s limiting his movement or he’s lost confidence but he’s a shadow of the player he once was.

Difficult to make a positive case for many of the squad based on what we’ve seen so far. Player of the Year vote will be an absolute hoot at this rate.

He is a good player, but he's seemingly lost whatever pace he had since his injury, don't know if that will return now. Perhaps has to modify his game. 

Lovely looking bloke though.

He just doesnt seem with it. Poor touches all the time, always stretching for everything. He could have made a better effort to block the opening goal as well, and didnt cover himself in glory for raith goal recently.. Liked him a lot in last few years but so far this season he is letting himself and the team down.

John Rankin on Off the Ball suggesting that a new manager can take Dunfermline only one way 'up'
I don't think he understands how the Scottish league system works.


Well, we can’t go any further down the table to be fair. I’m a pessimist so obviously I can’t see how anyone can turn this around without getting rid of a lot of the squad and replace them with better players equipped for a relegation scrap.

If we don’t start winning soon, we are going to find ourselves absolutely miles behind safety before the January transfer window. We need to keep ourselves in touching distance before then so the new man can get rid of some of these duds and replace them. Hopefully get rid of all the loan players as well. We’ll maybe have to use the loan market extensively if we can’t free up large amounts of wages.

Fucking state of this club.

Remember Robbie inherited a very strong squad at ICT through Butchers scouting network. ICT played better football by far under Yogi (joy to watch).  You should also research why he stepped away from team manager at ICT. Dodds is doing a far better job.  You are going for the wrong man at ICT.

And Yogi won the Scottish Cup.

Robertson inherited a shit show from Richie Foran did he not. He had a big rebuild job when they got relegated.

Foran had a short time and thrown under a bus with many injuries. Good luck with Robbo and see what happens when the pressure comes on

I couldn't give a f**k if we had a team full of Katy Perry clone's right now. Give me a squad full of Jo Brands that can win games. 

Nah f**k that. Get Tom Lang back, pay him what he wants.
