Cowdenbeath & Elgin were 27 & 25 points respectively behind Cove, 15 & 13 points behind Edinburgh City and were just ahead of Queens Park- that's hardly clubs with a realistic chance of going up - getting guaranteed money in the bank wqs a much better option. 

What are you talking about - don’t you know how play offs work?

Surely it doesn’t actually need any League One sides to have voted against?

Of much greater importance than working out who may or may not have voted a certain way is getting Jacqui Low out of the club immediately. She’s been a fucking disaster.

 

I agree, she's been mostly awful, and I've often criticised her, but she can't be blamed for today's debacle, or the debacle throughout the SPFL, over the last 3 months. There's many negatives that can be said about the professional conduct of the club under Jacqui, but this isn't one of them in my mind. And also, I highly doubt she's going anywhere.

So the Cowdenbeath & Elgin Boards sat down and thought - we have no chance of catching Cove, Edinburgh City are much better than us, Queens Park are just behind us and we might not make even make the play-offs but we will turn down immediate cash in the Bank and take the chance that we might fluke an unlikely promotion.

I suspect that the Boards of these Clubs took a pragmatic view and understood about a realistic chance of getting promoted even if you don't.

What nonsense - Cove were always going to be champions with their big money backing.  Edinburgh City had a record of wld v Cowden and had drawn twice v Elgin.  QP had also beaten Edinburgh twice.  Neither Cowden, Elgin or QP thought Edinburgh are so much better than us we won’t win promotion.  Neither Cowden nor QP voted to get money in the bank and both could have waited to receive league fees at end of May as normal.  Thus there is hardly a shred of substance in this fantasy you are deluding yourself with - and that is the problem with so many preferring to rage, fantasise and imagine conspiracies when the truth is much more prosaic.

Well that's shite for a start seeing as East Fife and Montrose basically have almost full squads signed up. Absolutely no way they're doing that then voting to mothball.

That may be the case, but I can't see every team being willing and/or able to play. Which throws another spanner in the works for those that are.

Clearly you don’t as that wasn’t what he said. He actually said he wanted clarity as to whether he had a budget for a league with Partick and Falkirk in it or a league with Stranraer and Edinburgh City in it. Some hard of thinking Partick and Falkirk fans then took their own understanding of this and made c*nts of themselves online.

though not as bad as the Forfar fan who made a sick joke about Colin Weir

My opinion is mothballed for a season. I believe that 6 of the 10 teams in our league want to mothball.

Where do you get this shite from?

This is potentially a legal challenge. Obstruction of people working?

But f**k em - hope they all go bust.

Absolutely 100%. Said as much 2 pages ago. She’s ultimately responsible for where we are, thanks to the Caldwell era. 

Let's not stop there. McCall has had 21(?) Games and a window, and failed to get us off the bottom of the league. We hadn't won a game in 3 months.

Regardless of how great she's suddenly become at writing heart string pulling statements, her actual job in life, by the way. She and her Board were gullible enough to buy Caldwell's bullshit. She then allowed him to get rid of one of our greatest ever players, during his testimonial season. Times a great healer, but those two things alone demonstrate that she and many others should be nowhere near the Club. That should never be forgotten. Ever!

McCall has at least shown that he can do well at the level we’re going to. He’s not been good enough so far, but I think he has shown that he could be.

Jacqui Low has done nothing of the sort - every decision she’s made has been dreadful and every statement the club puts out under her is a complete shambles. She needs to go, along with Britton, and then we can worry about the rest.

Plus, if McCall goes then we get another Jacqui appointment...

It's baffling how weak Britton has been. When the time came to steady the ship. Get in a safe pair of hands. We brought in a manager with a history of failure. Britton had seen first hand the effect of appointing a dud can do to a Club in that position. He had been that dud, himself. He'd read the story before. 

He'd been a player, a manager and then sat in the Boardroom. But didnt call a stop to Caldwell getting rid of a legend. He knows the fans and knew the repercussions, and sat back and let it happen. That's unforgivable.

As harsh as it is for the vast majority of our fans to believe. I'm afraid he has. 

You’re not taking enough account of how bad we were when he came in. Agree that it’s been a disappointing start, certainly not what people would’ve hoped for ... but he has to be given at least the first half of the next season.

I think if McCall goes we get Archie?

I believe McCall is a very good manager but im very disappointed and underwhelmed in him this last season.  I dont doubt he will remain and he should.  He has also been lucky in that some of the chancers we were lumbered with eg Scott Fox, Sean McGinty etc were not his signings and were absolutely awfulThe rubbish with the apologies after games where we we lost to Arbroath or a low on confidence Dundee has to go.  We are not interested in it and he completely failed to get them up for it.  As does the constant bigging up of Tam Oware and Banzo.  Both were dreadful for us last season, as experienced players we were right to expect so much more from them and his constant bigging them up is ridiculous given how bad they both were, besides im not sure it actually helped either player that much, if anything it probably put them under more pressure.

I doubt the club afford to pay him off and personally I think he deserves another chance despite the awful season they had, because I believe elsewhere he has been a decent manager and I believe he can assemble a good team.  However if we dont acheive promotion either by winning the league or any playoff then he will have to go and he himself I would think must realise that
