Why does Liam Watt not get a game? He was a player I always liked at Airdrie and is surely better than the rubbish that was on the park yesterday. Likewise I am glad Kyle Connell wasn't playing. Injured? 

Liam Watt is like the rest of the team in not playing very well at all and unfortunately not better than the “rubbish on the park” at the moment. Kyle Connell was injured a few weeks ago and we certainly miss his presence up front as there is nobody to replace him? A very poor squad indeed.

Really don’t see why we have to wait and see what happens with the Clyde game. The damage is well and truly done and a win against Clyde is only kicking the can down the road and papering over the cracks. 

Well that result didn’t paper over the cracks and it’s a long road back into the pack. Would really like to hear some communication from the board on what they see as the problems causing the run of poor form and results.The fans turned up today and I never heard any negative shouts to the manager, the players can’t be faulted for effort but ultimately it’s a results driven business and the manager takes responsibility. Danny Swanson and Kyle Connol could bring the bit of quality needed but there isn’t any word on them coming back from injury. At least the manager took the decision to drop Dunlop and Gallagher today as their performances have been below the level expected. If the board continue to stand behind Darren let’s hear the reasons how they think he can turn around this sorry mess.

Young now has to go, this shambles can’t go on. The squad is absolute mince though and it will now take a miracle to keep us up.

Relegated in September, what a fun time being a Fife fan at the moment. I watched Arbroath yesterday and the trajectories of the 2 clubs are miles apart and it wasn’t so long ago when we were rivals.

Was fully expecting to hear news of Young’s departure, but nothing.

Looking at his record for the season in all competitions:

Played: 14
Won: 3
Drawn: 1
Lost: 10.
Goals For: 11
Goals Against: 30

Bearing in mind that 2 of those wins came in the SPFL Trust Trophy and 1 was against St Johnstone Under 18’s. It’s an appalling record.

Surely, the board have to act this week, yes a new manager might not make a difference but we need a lift somehow as the level of apathy for this early in the season is not great.

What’s the worst points total for League 1?

The last 2 seasons Forfar and Stranraer have had 17 and 16 points respectively although in shortened seasons. As for a full, normal season, Stranraer got 16 points in 08/09 although you could say they were unprepared as they were only promoted into the league that campaign due to Gretnas demise. Berwick also 16 points the season before. 

Shortened answer to your question - 16

Young clearly has a high opinion of himself with all those full time jobs he applied for. Clearly the fact we're still stuck with him tells its own story.

Why are the board not recognising failure?

Absolutely no doubt he would have been sacked from any other club with this appalling start to the season. 
Even last season the signs were there and thank God for Jack Hamilton’s goals. 
The 2 year contract gifted to Young gets more pathetic as each week goes by.

Lots of calls for Young’s head and backing coming from the board. What about this one then, Young identifies a non-compromising, very tall central defender, he asks the board to finance it, they hum and haw and eventually agree to pay the costs BUT said player has already signed on elsewhere. Not saying Young is blameless but is he getting the resources to get the quality we desperately need??????

News just out this morning!!!IMG_1632658395.853330.jpg
Could he be clearing the way for a move elsewhere???

Fotheringham and Dair have a pretty patchy record at Junior and EoS level. They leave with Dundonald in tenth position in league, having played more games than teams around them.

Would suggest the return of Crawford and Jason Dair would be a better option, and no one would welcome that

No, certainly not to East Fife anyway.  Would imagine Stevie Frail would make the step up, short term anyway. All hypothetical. Young needs to get into the sea first and foremost.

No matter who we get they are left with the same tripe of a squad until we can empty the majority of them next season anyway.

I wouldn’t mind us getting a relatively new coach with decent contacts in so he can cut his teeth for the rest of the season before the League 2 campaign next season.

Fotheringam’s record is a bit meh so wouldn’t want him.

Google it rather than attention seeking with negativity here.

What an absolut embarrassment we’ve become here guys. Surely it’s time for Darren to go. See that Kevin fozzy fotheringham just left his role and the chat around the Leven area is that hes “signed da ting”

Google it rather than attention seeking with negativity here. 


Oh great, you’re back.

Maybe google ‘irony’.
