Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Don't think Dick would work very well with this squad. 

Same here.

I think the Arbroath squad have parallels to what our team under Bert Paton had in the 90's. Could handle themselves, there was fast tempo to their play,  always bet on them winning most 50/50s and actually could play a bit of football as much as they didn't get much credit for it. That Paton team assisted by Campbell was my favourite time watching Pars. Absolute goal machine of a team. The pathetic home record we have now would be unthinkable.

The squad we have now just don't have it in them to play the way Campbell would want.  I just don't see that edge or desire from any of them.

Might be worth confirming whether "Yogi" has ever won the Scottish Cup though as I'm not sure if that point's been addressed.

I can officially confirm that Yogi won the Scottish Cup in 2015.

 

ps - and put smiles on faces all over the land after gibbing the Tic in the semi final. To be fair he gad successful against the Gers too.

Ross Jack has taken Rothes to a new high of 3rd in The Highland League. Also doing a cracking job at youth level at ICT. Great Coach.

He could reintroduce this hairstyle to East End. Definitely helps with headers.

Imagine if Campbell was the manager of this lot? No-one willing to get in about it in the midfield, very rarely win second balls or 50/50s. Would give the man a heart attack. No desire or guile to get a grip on matches. The game just totally passes them by. Campbell wouldn’t be able to get this team going I don’t think. Too many egos that think they’re above themselves. Doesn’t matter anyway; Campbell will never give up his gig at Arbroath, so long as he is still keeping them in the Championship.

I think the majority of players do have a bit of heart about them, it's just been completely sucked out of them over the last few months.

Imagine telling one of us a decade ago that Dick Campbell would be one of the favourites for the Pars job in 2021 and most fans wouldn’t be against it.

Tbh imagine telling us that at the start of this year.

Aye,  there's been talk of lack of effort or desire.  I don't think that is the case,  individually we have players up for it,  we have guys who know there abilities and won't take much to get them confident again. 

What is completely gone is the trust in each other,  players are hesitant and second guessing things cos they don't trust those around them.

It's not a kick up the arse we need,  it's cohesion within the squad.

I see Whittaker has said that Iain Wilson was fully fit at the weekend despite not making your squad. 
Seems a bit of a strange one. 
 

That’s very odd.

Where did he say this? Absolutely mental decision from Whittaker and Shields. A fit Iain Wilson is our best midfielder by far.
