Hughes mentioned on his interview there was something again between Dorrans and the fans? Or was that just a set up for his joke about giving the ball away once?

I think it refers to Dorrans swearing at someone in the crowd who by all accounts had been hurling abuse all game, it was down at Ayr so quite historic and I don't think anyone held it against Dorrans.

You've been drinking too much of that kölsch if you're not getting Yogi's jokes.

Anyone else heading to tonight’s Q&A?

There were a handful of tickets available yesterday due to some folk cancelling, so if anyone doesn't have a ticket it might be worth trying again. Or if you were planning on going and can't make it, you should be able to cancel.

I've never been to one of these but I've been to a few things organised by the club/Jason Barber and the Centenary Club as it was then (I take it he's no longer involved?). The Question of Sport night was a good laugh - 3 players, 3 ex-players and 3 coaching staff in teams in the Jefferies era - and after the Stephen Kenny "Meet the Manager" night I thought we were definitely going to stay up, win the cup and have a decent run in Europe; He really did talk a good game.

I was there at the Stephen Kenny intro night, can mind going home thinking along similar lines and we'd found an unknown gem. All we found was an imbecile.

With the plans unveiled and hearing the chairman speak tonight, reading between the lines, I can actually see why they appointed PG in the summer. Not that it was the correct appointment whatsoever, but I can see what they were doing.

Christ, they must have spoken well.

Out of interest, how have they justified it?

Felt that was a very positive evening, with excellent news regarding the new training ground - at Rosyth and hopefully at least partially opened for pre-season - and the proposed Youth Academy.

Ross McArthur performed very well and although I totally understand his reasons for stepping down, it’s clear he still has a lot to offer the club. I was heavily critical of the decision to appoint Grant in the summer but his passion and knowledge of the off-field activities is indispensable. I hope those morons who targeted him in public are proud of themselves.

Yogi was exactly how you’d expect Yogi to be at one of these events; passionate, cracking jokes and trying to inspire the fans. Definitely could feel a different energy on Sat and hopefully him and the team can back it up in the next few weeks.

Only a couple of daft questions (put the name of the club on the stadium??) and it only dragged a little toward the end. Definitely glad I went along.

Well done you because I still have no clue. Still an absolutely nonsensical and hugely damaging decision.

Surely no?

It’s not exactly the worst question/suggestion in the world. Just really.. odd.

They actually never went into it at all and weren't questioned on it. Was pretty brushed over.

I've maybe not worded it properly. With the new academy and all this jazz, I think it's pretty clear they were looking for a high calibre of a training ground coach to work alongside the board closely. They've spoken to various footballing people who speak very highly of PG and went with it.

For the record, it's not the way I'd run a championship football club in Scotland. The plans unveiled tonight are very ambitious and I'm not sure it's really required or will be cost effective in the short, middle or long term.

It was linked towards marketing the club, at least thats how I took it. Loads of cars driving past the stadium, and compared to the sign of the 60s there's not as big a sign.

It was a suggestion from somebody who doesn’t understand marketing. Thought process that sales people would use on folk to make them buy advertising packages they don’t need.

As if anyone driving past EEP who could possibly give a flying f**k about football doesn’t know Dunfermline play there. Christ almighty.
