 This Is Tedious.

On Saturday 4th January Dunfermline lost at Home to Ayr United.Since then seven Saturdays would come and go without a match at East End Park.

That is a ludicrous gap of eight weeks.

Of course our friends were watching their clubs in the Scottish FA Cup.Our unmitigated disaster at Stranraer put paid to that.

It is a long time for the Club to go without Gate income.

Of course there are benefits.Players will have recovered from niggling injuries.Some players eg Tom Beadling and Lewis Martin were laid low by illness and they are better.

Owain Fon Williams,our experienced talented goalkeeper, will have bedded in.

Meantime,Fans have got out of the Saturday routine and may have realised that a hot coffee on the settee in a warm lounge on a hypothermic winters day has its compensations.Lets hope for the anticipated big Gate v Dundee Utd and the salivating prospect of Shankland and Nisbet gracing the same pitch.

Can’t wait to get back to normality, Mrs Mcl is getting used to having me around on Saturdays which is not a good thing

It’s been like a close season

Maybe those who'd like to see our season played over the summer, with a winter shutdown, would like a rethink?



Not your average Sunday League player.

We've not had a home game because of I) Friday BBC Scotland football and 2) The Diddy cup.

Both are loss-making, pointless ventures for which there is no demand.

It does whet the appetite for the next home game but I'm very much looking forward to seeing us stick a few in at Firhill next Saturday.
