Walking Down The Halbeath Road


Recommended Posts

Shree cheers for Yogi. He'll be able to turn things around with all the gid laddies doing their bit. As someone else commented it's either going to be sugar or shit. I actually think it'll be the former. We're almost guaranteed to be the only club he ****ed up big time in comparison to all his efforts elsewhere. It's the Rovers' way. Certainly going to make the derby games "interesting".

Expect him to talk a good game, fall out with players and achieve nothing.

So Peter Grant Mark 2 then?

Meh, it could have been a lot worse. I would have been happy with Robertson. There's no middle ground I don't think with Yogi. He's either going to shoot us up the table and we challenge next season, or we go straight down without a whimper. It could work. We'll have to wait and see. I'll certainly give him backing as he is lightyears better than Grant and we should, in theory, be at least more competitive.

Ayr United fans no doubt claiming that he was at Somerset Park for talks before the Pars swooped.

If his Pars career goes the same way Todorov’s has until now I don’t think many of us will be complaining.

I'll just be the first to put Callum Morris coming back in on the table, been without a club since Ross County...

Think he's away back down to England now and is a bit of a perma crock.  We were meant to sign him in the summer but it didn't happen.

Pars fans need to get a grip on reality. Who the f**k did they think we could attract or afford? We're adrift at the bottom of the league, little to no money and a questionable squad. Currently this is our level and we need to suck it up. 

Would be good if our fans also united behind the manager and didn't look to get on his back at first sign of trouble. 

Need this to work and we'll get on a lot better if fans could give him full vocal support.

Piss off.

The fans have given the team far more support than they’ve deserved this season. It should be about getting the stay away fans back.

Aye he’s almost destined to have a stormer at the Pars after how he did with us. If/when he beats us in a derby it’s going to sting.

It depends entirely on the players. Hughes did have a point that our relegation side was full of shitebags. That a number of them were loanees probably contributed directly to this. His management style was to constantly criticise them in public, culminating in his embarrassing interview after St Mirren beat us 5-0 and he went full yer da.. Unsurprisingly, the players despised him and didn't respond to his style.

We did however give Locke the transfer window before firing him, so there was no opportunity to ditch the modern day softies that society has failed for some guid 'oanest loddies ready tae take wan in the dish fur the team. In that sense it might work out.

He clearly fucked up at Raith but his record everywhere else isn't too shabby, especially early doors and we need that record to continue as it stands we're royally fucked.

I'd certainly take him over the other viable candidates mentioned (Kettlewell/McIntyre) considering Robertson & Petrie were probably never going to take the job.

Not 100% convinced but that feeling is probably more to do with the way it's went so far this season.

Does anyone know if Petrie/Montrose have ever been approached by Dunfermline?

It's a question of how the players respond I guess. If your weren't responding to Grant's overbearing arrogance, not sure Yogi is going to come in and be all that different.

In terms of game management and tactics? Never showed anything at the Rovers that impacted us positively. His team lineup and tactics for that infamous St Mirren were atrocious. The triple sub against Hibs was just weird. Not sure how he did at Ross County.

Apparently he wasn't considered and has never been approached by us. 

There's probably a number of reasons why.  Possibly the Dunfermline board want someone who has managed FT before, and they may know he'd probably say no anyway.

Big Cal Morris and Vytas at the back

That’s exactly what Peter Grant did, so that’s exciting.

Money to pay Montrose as well to buy him out his contract. I knew deep down it would always be someone that wasn't employed. Think Yogi was probably the best out of that bunch.
