  1. Transfer in and outs

    Really demonstrates how the balance of power has changed with County signing our best player and us being reduced to taking players from them who are not good enough to be first team regulars.

    I too have had first hand experience of this dreadful illness and have expressed sympathy for all victims and their families. I am all for much more understanding and sympathy for altzheimers and it's many victims both direct and indirect. I feel similarly strongly about other ailments impacting on mental as well as physical health which is precisely why, much as I have sympathy for him now, there is an irony in a man who showed little sympathy or understanding for a vulnerable subordinate suffering from depression now appealing for such understanding himself.
  4. Transfer in and outs

    I appreciate that the intention may be to offload both OFW and David Raven but the fact is they are here and we are paying their salaries for now OFW looks a great deal safer and more reliable than Ridgers and Raven is better than any other defender currently at the club. Given how we are leaking goals, why are we not utilising them ?

    and, as such, subject to precisely the same site rules as everybody else. If anyone believes the post to be a breach of site rules then there is a procedure for reporting it.
  7. IRN BRU Cup (Challenge Cup)

    In our position, every little helps and a cup win is always pleasing.
  8. IRN BRU Cup (Challenge Cup)

    I would like us to take it as seriously as any other competition. Probably our only chance of silverware this season and, were we to reach the final, some reasonable and much needed income to be gained.
  9. Transfer in and outs

    Whilst the standard of football wasn't the best, that game was definitely not forgettable. I will remember that game and the whole day for as long as I live.

    While I have a great deal of sympathy for anyone afflicted by this dreadful debilitating illness and for their families, there is an inescapable irony in Jimmy Calderwood appealing for understanding of a mental health related ailment.
  11. Board statement 14/08/17

    After all the critism of the silence and, worse still, misinformation coming from the club, such a frank statement has to be welcome as, in my view, is the resignation of the current chairman who, in his short tenure, has presided over chaotic administration and communication to such an extent that his position very quickly became untenable. His going is the right thing to do, possibly the only right thing he had done as chairman and his replacement is a first and necessary step to restoring our reputation and credibility. As for restoring our place in the Premiership, that is going to be a difficult and uphill task given our limited financed but it will be an impossible task without everyone from the boardroom to the dressing room to the stands putting recent differences behind us and now pulling in the same direction.

    Mixed views on this. Savage has caused ructions and board room division the last time he was involved and DM was at the helm when we built up almost three million pounds in debt and the bank were about to pull the plug before DS stepped in. That said, hopefully, we all learn from our mistakes and they will both be a more positive influence this time around.

    They will change it when they get round to announcing the pre season friendly with Clach.
  14. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    I know that communication from the club has been poor of late but surely that high profile friendly should have been better advertised.
  15. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    Robbo has posted on this site in the past and I am sure still visits it. There would always be constraints on what and how much he could say but a weekly one hour question and answer session on here alternating on a weekly basis between the manager and a designated board member would cost nothing in terms of resources, go towards clearing up misunderstanding and ambiguity and generate much needed rapport and goodwill between club and fans.
