Agreed, we keep hearing this mantra that Dick needs new players, and that the current players aren't good enough.  Scott Allan is more than good enough to play for us.  If we aren't getting the best out of him, that's on the manager.

Scott Allan can't pass a ball 15 yards so that's the manager's fault. Your clear hatred of DC is clouding your judgement

What would that say about the manager's judgement giving him a 2 year contract on £1800 a week ? 

Obviously it was a gamble bringing him here which hasn't worked out so far, it might yet. When he was announced coming here didn't hear any criticism from the fans who on the contrary were mainly delighted.

I agree with this 100%. My concern is that there is no way we should be paying any player that kind of money.

Thanks for the eating recommendations up thread, will check them out (well, the wife will!).

It’s looking baltic on Friday evening, around freezing at 9pm, I take it the ground being where it it is, the game will have a good chance of going ahead though? My only previous visit to Gayfield was much warmer. 😬

Games are rarely postponed at Gayfield due to the cold and yes, because of the location, the pitch will more than likely be fine.

I’m coming up on Friday night for the Dunfermline game (neutral, but will be in the Arbroath end 😉) with missus and 11 year old daughter. 
 

Without wanting to turn this into tripadvisor, are there any decent pubs that do food or Italian restaurants in the town for a bite to eat before the game? Don’t mind if the pubs are a bit noisy, we’re regulars at football and daughter is well used to the rougher end of the language scale (being Cowden regulars 😄).

Any suggestions gratefully received.

I think Coast or the Townhouse would be the best place to go personally. Even Spoons if you want something basic. 
 

On the game I really cannot be arsed with it it’s just good that we don’t have to do a league game this week and we will be a week closer to January. 
 

This game up against Netherlands v Argentina in the quarter finals of a World Cup… I know what I’d prefer 😂

I don't know what we are paying him and I doubt anyone else knows but I assume the board would have had to ok the deal and if they were happy with whatever we are paying him I'm ok with that. The board are doing a good job and seem to know what they are doing.

Scott Allan is not a bad player.  Don't be like the people who said that our squad isn't even league 2 standard.

I was just making the point that Scott Allan is responsible for his poor form on the pitch you can't put that all on the manager. He is a good player, just not happening for him just now but hope he finds his form.

I thought it was a decent performance on Saturday and deserved the point and in fact could have won it in the end, the subs made a difference but for the life of me having our 2 proper strikers on the bench (Shanks and Isiaka) i could not believe the Gaffer brought on Corfe for Bobby and never went for the 3 points with putting another striker up top with Fosu who caused problems when he came on.

I was at the Q&A so know some of the reasons that some players are getting less game time than others and in the little game time i have seen Isiaka play he has actually looked decent, strong and direct so it is a mystery to me why he does not get more minutes under his belt and if anybody is telling me there is more chance in winning a game thrown Corfe on before Shanks and Isiaka then i am baffled.

I think Friday's game is the type of game to play the players that are not getting game time and just say "prove me wrong lads".
