“Some”? They were all shite apart from Mark Burchill and Alan McGregor.

An outrageous thing to say about Sol Bamba!

He found big Dorus playing for a Dutch amatuer team  in a pre-season tour tae!

Mixed bag we could say in terms of his signings.

I was referring to season 2005-06 tbh. He signed some good players the following season but we still went down. He was well past his best and should have stood down in 2006 tbh. Hindsight and all that.

No idea the accuracy of this but it back up your claim https://salarysport.com/football/scottish-championship/dunfermline-athletic/

Most of the other figures look about what I'd expect tbh. The one terrifying outlier is Mehmet if accurate.

If that's anywhere near accurate it's nice to know we have about £110k worth of goalkeepers the most expensive one looks worse than the cheaper one.

You have to think that I doubt the club could afford to bring in another goalkeeper on that sort of wedge and therefore anyone anywhere near the quality we need.

110k on absolute dug shite. OFW needed replaced in the summer. Grant identified this issue and then pursued to sign the worst goalkeeper I have ever seen as his replacement.  

The goalkeeping position has been an absolute disaster over the last 5 years.

Being awful generous to David Hutton and Chris Smith there. Mehmet is bad, don’t get me wrong. But those 2 were really abysmal. I’m probably forgetting others as well. We seem to really struggle with our keepers - maybe it’s a coaching issue?

Yeah. Some really bad keepers. I think I'm being generous when to say in the last 5 years too. It clearly goes back much further than that.

5 years about right.  Murdoch was decent and last played in 2017,  tho his later stages he was beginning to struggle playing through injury.

Before him scully was decent at league 1.

You then need to go back to about 2007 when Gallagher played if you don’t count the few months he was fit at start of 11/12.

Strangely before him leaving 1st time round we never went long without a decent keeper.

Smith was awful but in his defence was goalie in a league winning campaign and did actually have the odd really good game (Falkirk away for example).

Mehmet was flinging a ball in the back of the net every week.
