HArvey is so far out his depth. For guys to say he is brave to come out and do an interview after games is nonsense as well it would have looked a lot worse if he didn’t actually come out and do 1 today. He is completely responsible for that today. He quite clearly doesn’t have any respect from the players. And I seen a video today of a few guys in a pub prank calling him pretending to be representatives of newtongrange star and negotiating deals for players. Totally embarrising our club and so far out his depth. It would not be crazy to show him the door now and get somebody in who will gain respect of the players and who the players will actually work for!!! 

More fake news and shallow trolling from The Kingdom. You still here?

I wish it was fake news but unfortunately it’s not. Shouldn’t be so hard to find if you want to see it

Berwick will be fine this season as Albion Rovers will clearly finish bottom. It should give you a bit of space and time to try to address the obvious problems before next season. Although not doing great, your early season form didn’t seem to hint  at the recent collapse in form. Gave us a good few problems.

With the exception of Barr not 1 of the players Harvey has brought in are good enough, ok I’ve not seen the striker play yet and he has a decent scoring record which is the hardest thing to do in football regardless of level. He has brought a keeper in who he trusts and he repays him with that today, Hume is so far out his depth it’s actually a shame for him. Knox might have nice neat touches now and again but there’s a reason his career hasn’t hit the heights he seem set to hit and has been loaned out to east fife before us. Forbes not good enough. And I can’t even remember the young lad from raiths name. I think it’s obvious he’s out his depth and he’s tried to make far too many changes to quickly and from the discipline record since he’s been in charge and the way players just moped around today and looked like they couldn’t be arse seems to me like there is no respect at all.

Try not to post on p&b a lot unless it’s positive, but it’s a tough gig to take on at anytime never mind half way through the season.

Try judge Johnny as of next season when he’s had a decent kick of the ball at building a squad & getting his ideas across & more of his own players in.

Not everyone’s cup of tea as a gaffer, but he’s a very well driven manager, believes in his principles & will work his tail off to try turn things around.

Wish him all the best & hope he proves a few folk wrong!

You must be delusional mate ? Albion Rovers will CLEARLY finish bottom ?  Albion now have a game in hand and still to play Berwick twice in the league. That’s  a cocky post given we’ve just been spanked 7-1

Some of the excuses being dished out for Berwicks results from management and supporters is mental. Budgets ? The Board ? Location ? The other teams quality ? We never took our chances ? Ect ect. This manager has been in charge for 4 months, 12 league games, 6 of the starting 11 were his players yesterday 7 if you count the sub who came on. Not one sign of improvement, not one !!

It’s just my opinion mate and as a non Berwick fan I’m not sure how my post can be described as ‘cocky’. 

Anyway Rovers have managed to amass 7 points in over half a season and if anything they seem to be getting worse as the season progresses. It will be a minor miracle given this record if they manage to stay up.

If any current player is involved with prank calls they should be shown the door and told to gtf, given our current predicament.

Given we have the worse defensive record in the whole SPFL, I'd be interested to know why Jamie Todd was released with no apparent replacement lined up?

Next three months are vital for the club and it's time the players grew a set following yesterday's embarrassing capitulation otherwise it's the LL next season.

Wish I'd signed up to Pound per Point now!!

I would imagine Hume was Todds replacement. I was always a fan of Todd not sure how that 1 has happened, and questions seriously need to be asked if there is any truth in what disc potato was saying regarding him in at other clubs.

A decent kick off the ball?? Bring in his own players??? He’s been here four months now that excuse needs to go f**k me we’re getting humped 7-1 at our closest rivals in the league. A game which would have probably secured our safety if we had won. And he has now recruited 7 players do me a favour.

The boy doing the prank call is clear for all to see on the video, he’s not trying to hide. Wether he is an ex player or not I don’t know

Saying that any team are worse than Berwick ( in our current situation ) and saying they’ll  “ clearly  “ go down seems to me to be very cocky

Has anyone any confidence in this ending well? I don’t. I base this in the fact this situation we are in has all stemmed from the boardroom and no it’s not just from the summer. This rot has been eating away at the club for years now and it’s looking like it could culminate with us losing league status and ultimately I’d say our very existence.

They’re taking us down, Lenny and Walla, they’re taking us down.

I think it should be made clear that absolutely no one on here will have anything personal against Harvey, when you come into the SPFL the level of scrutiny is much higher than the East of Scotland league and fans are more engaged and vocal. He hasn’t helped himself with post match comments but, certainly in my experience, he is the manager of a rival club so I want him to fail. I’m sure he knows this and expects stick himself. If he wants to succeed he will have to overcome this.

Football is a very fickle game.

Your sentiment is well meaning and, in the majority, I think that's the case.

However, when some wee jakey sh!tebag records a confidential conversation, held in good faith, and shares it, one has to wonder.

Football can be utterly unscrupulous as well as fickle. Despicable behaviour; I hope some punitive measures can be taken.

I for one have always said the jury is out on Harvey I don't know which way it will go for him an interesting guy. On camera he has a very positive upbeat persona which I can  understand given where his team are at the moment trying to instil some positivity. However he needs to be careful as overtrading on this as with any aspect or trait can become a weakness. Having met him a couple of times off camera  one to one he comes across as a decent bloke quite measured.

He has a tough task ahead of him which I don't envy, having seen my own team in disarray for a few  seasons I don't take any satisfaction in seeing a  manger or club go through similar struggles I know how horrible it is.

As I say I genuinely don't know how his journey with Berwick will turn out  success or failure ?but what I have gleaned is there is more too him than the short post match interviews  posted on here.

I agree fully with this tbh. You only have to look at teams within our division and their signing policy.

The QP highlights are jaw droppingly awful. 

I doubt if it is possible to have 11 men on the pitch and afford the opposition so much space. They'd have to form a pyramid in one of the corners. Right from the outset we were regularly 20 yards or more away from the QP players. Astonishing. Fergie1 is right about the piss poor effort from our forwards. Healey, Willis, Knox - just terrible. Stonewall pen, and they should have had another. 

And Bob Wilson. Dear me. 

I so want Harvey to succeed but if he doesn't get this lot charging into tackles (and not getting sent off) next week, he needs to ask himself why
