Guessing that means we’re either off loading Robinson or Murdoch May be retiring?

Well Scully said to Morton he wants to play so I think it may suggest Robinson may move on, Gill as number 2

C'mon Ye Pars!

Morton manager said Scully was leaving as he wanted more minutes, I doubt he’s come here to sit on the bench so I reckon it’s Robinson that’s away

We love Dunfermline We do!

More than likely, Even with Gill here I can't see a 3rd keeper being needed so I would imagine Murdo will prob be retiring or Robinson will be leaving. Real shame for Murdo :(

Has previously played under McNamara when he was manager at Partick so can imagine that’s where this has come from.

Hopefully he does okay but it’s isn’t a goalkeeper we need.

Jackie McNamara is the football equivalent of Kevin Bacon.

Folk like Berkey will link him to any player we even look like being interested in.

Welcome home Ryan - good luck!

perhaps Gill has indicated he wont sign a new contract so he might be sold? could be any number of reasons which presumably Crawford will clear up in the interviews later. id take Scully over Robinson though.

"A bit concerned that his career seems to have stalled a bit recently but hope he does well"

Partick offering a deal which meant a club would have to buy him even though they were never going to play him regularly a big factor in that.

One of the few positions in the current squad adequately covered is Goalkeeper yet Stevie Crawford's first significant signing is a goalkeeper.

We need a striker if not two.

This ,coming after his interview in which he inferred Raith Rovers were part time; does not fill one with confidence.

at least 8 threads this season on Robinson, new manager replaced him and the new manager is the one now getting stick.

A new manager who has seen/worked with the existing goalkeepers in his previous position as a coach at the club.

It could be a plan to help fund a striker, If ,for example, it is Robinson who is moving on and we replace him with Scully who could be on a lesser wage that will free up some funds that can be used elsewhere. If you are working with a tight budget sometimes you need to do some moving around so you can prioritise on certain areas.

And if he's not moving on ?
You'd like to think before bringing in another keeper something would be in place for existing ones but who knows.
If he hasn't looked at this it could turnout to be a waste of s wage

I don't understand the issue over signing a goalkeeper.

Scully imo is better than Robinson.

Do you think the board are that clueless and don't recognise we need a striker? It will be getting worked on, this deal will have been factored in.

Last week's Thursday Preview. by Stevie Crawford was unsatisfactory.Raith Rovers are part time,don't you know,and our superior fitness will tell.That ended well.

This Thursday's match preview is equally unsatisfactory.

He agrees that "fans may be raising their eyebrows" at the signing of Ryan Scully when "we have issues elsewhere."Well he has got that right!

Lee Robinson has had ten shut outs and is one of our very few successes this season.

This really is a very uninspiring start by our new Head Coach.The inference is all too clear.

His interview is “unsatisfactory”? Are you being serious here? What on Earth are you expecting him to say?

He’s not exactly going to go into detail about the tactics/system we’re going to play, or what research we’ve done on our opponents, is he? That would be ridiculously foolish.

He explained that Scully’s been brought in because Robinson doesn’t train with us at the beginning of the week and they believe that causes a problem. Maybe he believes the attacking players would benefit from having 2 keepers (Scully and Gill) to hit shots into early in the week? Maybe he believes it will help build a better understanding with the defenders, to work with their keeper all week?

He knows there are other weaknesses and they’re working hard to bring in the right players to address them, but won’t sign players just for the sake of making signings. Would you prefer he named everyone, and let other clubs know that these players are potentially available?

I think it’s incredible that with all the holes in our team that desperately need filled (2 centre backs, two wingers and two strikers) that we have signed a goalie for training purposes. I had guessed that if we were signing a goalie then either Robinson or Gill must be on the way out. I’m close to losing it here.

That we "need" 6 new players. It would be fantastic to sign half a team but do you honestly think that's going to happen between now and next Thursday?

Like I said I think you've already lost it.

AJ was clearly happy with the modern day GKs arrangement. A new manager is appointed and thinks differently.

Happens in every single workplace all over the country. Makes sense to me.

Agreed. Apart from the word "adequate".
He was a really good keeper with us before. We definitely shouldn't need him and Robinson when we're short up top.

I don’t think for a minute we will sign 6 new players but I didn’t say that did I? I said they were holes that needed to be filled. I didn’t say we could fill them all. We should however fill as many of them as we can afford. We can afford to fill one less now (unless Robinson does in fact leave, in which case it doesn’t matter). This should not need explained to you btw.

So if Robinson leaves will you calm the fk down?

It's the same hysterical sh1te every transfer window on here. Jesus wept.

Oh aye and FWIW I don't think we "desperate need" 6 players. We just need to get one of our strikers to start putting 2 yard chances into the net and tell our centre halves to stop dicking around and clear their lines. A wee watch of a Norrie best-of DVD wouldn't go amiss.

In a word, yes. It won’t have cost us a wage we badly need to spend elsewhere in the team then.

Our centre backs and strikers have had most of the season to start doing their jobs properly, I’m not optimistic they are about to start now.

Agree the centre backs should be shown Norrie footage.

Nope, wrong....I have absolutely no feeling about him at all...exactly what he inspires in me...nothing.
I simply think the whole thing is a damp squib, his interviews so far uninspiring.
Hey we're all different and that's my opinion.
Nothing personal at all.
I think in recent times I've made clear whom I have a distinct dislike for, I'll stand by that too.
Edit...I'll add...I like Scully as a player and not against his signing...just feel we have other priorities...something our new manager has acknowledged.

At first glance signing another goalie seemed like some mistimed april fools joke but reading that the team didn't have an experienced goalie to train with for half the week reeks of bad management from the previous regime and speaks volumes about why we are where we are.

It doesn't excuse the bad form that our attacking players are having but thinking about it rationally it makes complete sense that they're failing to hit the back of the net if the only fit experienced keeper is being rationed out to only a couple of hours a week in training.

Nothing against Gill but as an inexperienced keeper I just don't think see how our players could have been expected to push themselves in training to get the ball past him and how he would have been expected to put up a standard of goalkeeping that keeps our attackers on their toes and drives them to do better and try harder.

Haven't got a strong opinion of Robinson one way or the other, he's showed some good performances and some dreadful performances whenever I've managed to get to games but if he's not 100% dedicated to goalkeeping with Dunfermline he needs to be moved on and we prioritise somebody who is.

One is left to infer, from the interview, that Ryan Scully will be between the sticks on Saturday.

Especially as Ryan has announced that he has left Morton" in the expectation of first team football".

Does the club turn its back on Lee, after ten shut outs and ,significantly ,one of the very few successes in this wretched season?

We have 7 days to find a striker.

Didn't see evidence that AJ's training had any impact. Players look like they've never played together all season and can't think of any players he's improved.

So Crawford's first move being a signing that changes training significantly might be a positive step.

Did anyone know that Robinson didn't train with the squad all week? I must admit I didn't and I can understand why a new manager might not like that situation and would want to change it. Just because his first signing is a keeper doesn't mean he's not looking to sign a striker or another outfield player.

Robinson isn't part time because the club can't afford to give him a full time contract or anything like that.

Lee primarily lives down south and was part time with QoS etc too AFAIK so it isn't something that's occurred since or because he's at DAFC.

Rightly or Wrongly, AJ was obviously satisfied with the arrangement considering he ratified two contracts for him (last January and then the summer), but, if Crawford doesn't feel this agreement is viable for training purposes etc then I can see why Scully has been brought in and it'll now be up to Robinson to prove his worth if he continues to be selected that he is worthy of being our number one despite not being involved on a daily basis.

Robinson had history with Johnston, the other issue might be Robinson has a strange set up that allows him time away doesnt he, maybe someone can confirm. That set up may not suit Crawford.


He was away with his own business pre season to Tenerife and missed training and games then too.
You can see this coming to a head, what happens if Saturday Scully starts and Gill is on the bench, it’ll be like Crawford forcing Robinson’s hand, then next week there’s a mutual termination of contract.

Im guessing that is why the other keeper Burt is there, as the training keeper in replacement for Robinson. I was aware he had some other interests which required some time off but didn't realise the extent of it. I can understand how that might not be an ideal situation

Meanwhile,top goal scorer Stephen Dobbie lives in Lytham St Anne's and is part time at QOS ,which does not seem to have hindered him.

After two weeks of assessing our misfiring team,Stevie has decided that the problem is the goalkeeper?You couldn't make this up!

Thank heavens Stevie did not pursue a career in medicine.He would have treated a migraine sufferer by amputating the patient's feet.

Lee Robinson has not been a success story this year.


So who would you say has been a success story this season.
Should we just get shot at everyone then .

As for someone mentioning players not putting themselves away because there's not a full time keeper ,well what can one say.other than "that's absolute rubbish."
They do something similar every match in the pre match warm up usually against a second choice keeper.
It should make you more confident if anything and it certainly wouldnt prevent a player taking a shot or even hitting the target.
Has anyone considered it may have suited the club financially to have a part time wage to pay when you already have 2 full time keepers on the payroll.
I also wonder if Crawford asked if Robinson would go full time.
One thing's for sure is that if we weren't losing games he wouldn't have considered changing anything.
Despite Crawford's comments it boils down to the fact he doesn't like/rate him. Which was s fine but maybe he should just say that

Crawford is a brave man to assume his keeper change is going to change things for better ,it may well turn out to be the best decision he's made or possibly the worst but regardless credit to the man.
Personally I would have spent the money on finding a striker as it stands now theres 4 keepers are on the books with only one been deemed good enough to play.
Murdoch can't be moved on at present due to injury Robinson would require a wage or a settlement if he left.
Scully's additional wage could have been used to subsidize a loan move or offer a better wage to a striker

If it's not broke don't try and fix it

I knew, eck, but only because I was joking with one player that he's been on almost as many school visits as me and I mentioned that I rarely see some other players and had never met Robinson.

He told me Robinson only trains with the Pars on Thursdays and Fridays and school visits are always on Mondays.

As I've asked before, will Gill ever get an opportunity to show his potential? It seems he will be the second string goalkeeper for ever, or even third choice.

I hope he gets plenty reserve games, or he'll be thinking that goals are just the size of the dugout he spends 90 minutes in most Saturdays!

I wasn't aware Robinson was only training two days a week with the team. Its a sensible approach to bring in a full time goalkeeper under those circumstances. I don't see that as a strange decision. You need confidence defensively. Granted we are not scoring goals but we are giving away easy goals. That must ripple through the team. There is no point in scoring two goals if you are going to lose three.

If you are a full time club, players should be there 8 hours a day 5 days a week like any other full time employment.

That too, although, from what we now understand on Robinson, have to back SC's decision here and a good first move to clear this nonsense up.

If the point earlier in the thread about him not being happy is true, then he can go, club on the face of it have been more than flexible with him. Surprised we entertained a PT player in such a crucial position.

He didn't mention in his interview that he's asked Robinson to go full time
Also who knows whether having him on a part time wage suited the club's budget as there's already two full time keepers.
There's more to this than meets the eye and it will be interesting to see if Robinson is on the bench tomorrow.
If not And he doesn't leave for another club this will confirm my thoughts.

Are the defence making mistakes due to lack of communication from the keeper?

If he's only there on a part time basis, it may exacerbate the problem, wasn't that long ago that Ashcroft and Robinson had to be kept apart at half-time.

Was Ashcroft sent off on Saturday due to lack of communication from from the keeper?

He was coming out of his goals to the edge of the box.

It didn't mater last season when we went on a great run from Feb, and Robinson picked up numerous clean sheets. I think the key difference is Morris isn't there to organise the defence in front of the keeper.

Crawford was on the coaching staff under AJ.

Maybe Robinson’s attitude is rotten or he just doesn’t get on with the other players and in particular with Ashcroft and the other centre backs. Can see animosity building up if he’s there for 2 games then gets a start regardless.

Could be Crawford had focussed on sorting out the dressing room and this move solves one of the problems.

Those saying about gill, he needs to be loaned out for first team experience, he looked very nervous and unsure in the one game I’ve seen him in.

I dont think the defence are making mistakes due to lack of communication from Robinson !! school boys know if in doubt put it out !!!! at the end of the day they are supposed to be Professional footballers so should know the script always clear your lines ,
Apart from that he was in goals last year for us and I cannot remember anyone on here Talking about the communication from him , it is nothing to do with him being part time either , folk are clutching at straws , the simple truth is our defence is not as good this year and that is where the problem is , we were a much better unit with Morris pulling the strings and keeping Ashcroft right and of course if you take away a striker who scores 20+ a season for you and you bring in dross to cover these positions do we really expect to set the heather alight ?
we have to be reasonable and realise we are not as good as we thought we were going to be and we shouldn't expect too much after signing rejects / bomb scares from other clubs
I await to see what SC can bring in to address the current situation, in his interview it's almost like listening to AJ that he will not bring anyone in that won't enhance the team so here's hoping he can bring the right personnel in !
at the end of the day we need to give SC a chance , goalkeeper one is baffling because I like many others thought the problem was the defence giving away silly goals and at the other end our forwards not taking their chances but obviously there is something going on in the background that we will get to know about eventually

You were told from schoolboy level, "don't let it bounce, get your head on it" so the pitch didn't help it was dead and slowed the ball up considerably.
I've watched BBC again this morning, and even the pundits are puzzled at why he left it.

I find your comments on Gill rather unfair. It was his first professional start for the Pars, regardless of any loans he would've been on, he would have been nervous.

If we'd stuck with him and gave him a couple of extra games you might have seen the better side of him and more confidence.

Although the way we've been this season might have ruined his confidence and folk on here would be hammering him.

Not sure why you need to specifically call out that he was out of the picture with Thistle and Morton when wishing him well?

Disastrous start under SC are you referring to? Fair to say that, but if we look at it, Dundee Utd came too early, was hardly in the door as Head Coach to really start bedding in his philosophy and from the accounts of the Raith game, we battered them until the sending off then crumbled, our inability to score has always been there this season and he'll be trying to sort.

I still don't think we can judge him that much yet. I'm happy with the Scully signing.

You knew fine well (as did many others)Robinson was part time you've mentioned many times ,so why now say it's sneaky.
Stephen Dobbie is part time too
Of course he would be in the day before a match at no extra cost to the club I would imagine, you'll probably get Nd that there are many midweek natchedthrought the season including cup games and replays ,all unpaid work
Would you say it in your last be if work?

Scully has played 15 times this season for Morton, with his last game for the Ton coming on the 12th January away to Alloa. I wouldn't say he's been "out of the picture" during his spell in Greenock; he's had competition from Derek Gaston though and that's pushed Scully all the way. I wouldn't say that's a bad thing tbh.

Does Dobbie not train with Blackpool when he is down south?Also he's a different calibre of player and has English Premiership experience-I can see why they would make an exception.

Let's keep this simple.

We needed a Striker not a Goalie.

No one has answered my point that Stephen Dobbie drives up from Lytham St Annes twice a week and no one bats an eye lid!!


Because its utterly irrelevant

This thread, and the one on Robert Thomson, demonstrates why players should keep well away from their clubs' social media sites.

The club have been very sneaky with this. Never once announced Robinson was signing a part time contract. As DAFC 90 says it might have been better financially for the Pars.
What I don’t get is the Tues night games. Did Robinson not train at all leading up to them. If that’s right then that is shocking.in fairness to Robinson he wasn’t the worst performer this season by far.


Oh I see it depends who you are whether it's acceptable
Now I understand

No-one bats an eye about Dobbie as he's good enough to do a job for a club in the top 6 in the Premier League and scores more goals than anyone else in Britain.

QoS are lucky to have him so make allowances for him.

Lee Robinson has done well for us but he's not anywhere near Dobbie's calibre. Furthermore, based solely on their Pars careers, Scully has been more impressive.

I would have thought most of that was obvious.

"from the accounts of the Raith game, we battered them until the sending off then crumbled"

Sorry, but take it from someone who was at the game, at no point were we "battering" them. We shaded the first half and had one good chance, but it was a fairly even game between two poor teams.

It's amazing how little some people know about how a football team works.

Absolutely the correct decision to bomb Robinson out if he cannot commit fully to the team.

How would you suggest a goalkeeper would be involved in second guessing where a corner will end up.
Could you give an example of what he might be asked tt do?
I think someone you have to read between the lines in club statements
For example without Robinson (assuming he's now out of the picture)) at club where will the required completion come from
