East fife playing a friendly today? Saw the bus pass by on the 737 but saw they don’t have a fixture

How did you know it was the East Fife bus?

Did Danny Denholm give you the double vickies?

Having a look through some of the squads since 2010, we have had some amount of absolute jobbers. I will give my team of the decade a go.

.............................. Liam Kelly

Pat Slattery, Steven Campbell, Jonny Page, Gary Naysmith

Aaron Dunsmore, Scott Agnew, Div Muir, Kevin Smith

............ Nathan Austin, Liam Buchanan

It’s actually quite difficult to choose 11, I know Slattery isn’t a right back but certainly deserves to be in the team. Jason Kerr, Ryan Wallace(1st spell), Bobby Linn, Craig Watson and Craig Johnstone were very close amongst others.

Picking a worst 11 would throw up some interesting names.

Let me be the first to say, don't dare go to Falkirk Darren.

Do you think he would apply?

Can't see Darren leaving for a club in the league as us if he does leave it would surely be for a Championship team


Chance of a league winners medal though, as opposed to play off winner next to his name.

Don’t think east fife will win the league but deffo a shout through the play offs.

I'm not sure. I think it depends on what's going on in your absolute horror show of a boardroom. If none of that was going on it's a no brainer, be bit of a kick in the teeth to our board mind.

Hmmm, it's almost 4pm on Sunday, almost 20 hours t after Snakey Ray got the tin tack at Fa'kirk.

Given DY's willingness to travel the length and breadth of the country for interviews, it's my guess is yer man has already applied for the job.

 

Hope for Rovers sake he gets it,  we could even have the title wrapped up in Feb!  🤣

Some bookies have Darren Young as low as 6/1 and third favourite to get the Falkirk job. I know he was interviewed for the Partick job but I doubt he would leave for a league rival at this stage of the season and what a kick in the stones it would be if he did. Hopefully Owen Coyle gets the Falkirk job and keeps Falkirk in league one

I don’t see DY leaving EF right now for anything less than a Championship job right now. Falkirk is a full-time club, but is currently woefully run. Also, the Falkirk team is imbalanced and it’s not clear there will be much budget to rearrange the deck chairs over there. In the big picture, staying loyal for the year will impress higher level clubs more than jumping at a lateral move. It’s also a case of a team he has built, so it shows his abilities...versus, can he rearrange the dross at Falkirk to win. That might impress another team looking for mid season change, but in the long run, showing you can develop a team from the ground up is much more impressive for your resume.

Wasn’t he interviewed for the Ayr job too ?

Yeah he applied and was interviewed. He’s the only one I would’ve taken over Kerr tbh.

Cannot see why DY would want the Falkirk job. Yes, a bigger club, but one that's not in a good place right now. After their board takeover fell through, if they don't go up this year, they'll likely have to have drastic cuts, they cannot keep that level of player at the club in league 1, it's simply unsustainable. If not huge cuts, then administration could well happen. There's been no strategy on recruitment, just a case of, he's played at a higher level, he'll do, chuck enough money at the team, they'll walk the seaside league. It's taken Raith 3 years to find this doesn't work. Remember, it's taken Young 2 full seasons to get the team to where they are, he'll not get that time at Falkirk. Personally, I expect him to end up at the Pars eventually.

A club with the apparent kudos of Falkirk could surely attract one of the big names in Europe!

Personally I don't think Falkirk's squad is a league winning squad, i've said this from the start of the season, however, due to the amount of cash spent, there is no upside for any manager taking that job now, especially one like DY who is trying to push on.

The squad is capable but not exceptional. The fans expect to win most games - win them and you are only doing what is expected, draw or lose and there is some hefty criticism coming your way. Dont win the league/promotion, and your reputation takes a fairly major hit, a load of pressure mounts for the 2nd season response, and like most previous incumbents of the 'should've won the league last year' award - you are out your job by Christmas. Veterans of the lower leagues have seen this story unfold so many times 

It would take a brave man to go into Falkirk right now with the boardroom shambles, and a hit and miss squad. I suspect they are more likely to get someone who has been at a 'bigger' club before and is trying to restore their reputation, than someone on their way up.
