Cant say I am too impressed either, however talk of not renewing season tickets is just daft. Are you a fan or not ?

What will you say if we are up there challenging ?

I hope we are regardless of who the manager is.

He might surprise us ?

Cannae say I`m awfy keen on this appointment, was hoping for Petrie but hey-ho. We did give Crawford time to build a team before properly judging him so it`s only fair that Grant gets the same.

I do think we`ll need a bit more oomph to the coaching team in order to supplement Grant though, would like shields to remain involved in the youth development side of things.

I exclusively revealed this a couple of nights ago 😉

I'm disappointed in the signing too but I don't think we should go overboard on the negativity. I thought SC was a bad move and ultimately he picked up the reigns and made a slight improvement in the team's personnel and league finishing position.

Hopefully PG can build on that and take the team further forward. Can't write the guy off before he's even started even if it does feel a bit underwhelming. Welcome to the club and good luck.

Given I`ve never seen the Pars play under Peter Grant`s management before, I`ll probably buy a season ticket as usual and give it a bit of time before throwing the toys out the pram.

He wouldn`t have been my first choice but, then again, I wasn`t involved in the interview process, have never seen the man at work and there`s a chance Ross McArthur et al are better placed and qualified to make an appointment than me.

None of the candidates mentioned by our resident Maltese Falcon filled me with optimism to be honest. Any or all of them could be relatively successful at this level or a complete disaster.

The knicker wetting screaming from the rooftops for statements & to employ John "Yogi" Hughes is a bit weird. If Grant hadn`t been mentioned & Hughes was appointed the same folk would be in the same state right now.

Let`s just see how it pans out.

some key points from the Courier article

"The 55-year-old was interviewed by East End Park chiefs this week and impressed sufficiently to emerge as their preferred candidate."

"Subsequent contract talks went without a hitch"

"the Pars hierarchy were impressed by the Wasps’ playing style and Grant’s philosophy on the game."

I`ve lost all confidence in the board if this is true. They`ve not made the right call on any manager since they`ve been in charge apart from AJ - and even then they messed up by giving him a 2 year deal when it wasn`t merited. Why take yet another risk appointing a manager who failed at Alloa? Love to be proved wrong but this is mental if true.

We have a financial framework we need to work within and every managerial appointment is a risk.

JJ was one of the most successful managers in Scotland and was an absolute gent in the way he treated the club but ultimately his record got him sacked.

It tells you all you need to know about this news then that fans are prefacing their remark by the words "If It Is True".

I know three Directors who are intelligent,experienced, articulate, caring and Pars daft

Hence my incredulity.

GG Riva and PARrot correctly pointed out this Forum may not represent Fans` views.

It surely tells how the wind is blowing though.

Not since Leishman was pushed out ,and replaced by Munro,has there been such an unambitious choice.

If it is accurate......

Was that the team that got relegated ?
They`re not the only part-time team in the league and the other one finished above us last (19/20) season yet I don`t hear anyone suggesting Dick Campbell would be a good appointment.
I`m not sure what is on Grants CV that makes him the best appointment, he`s been at big clubs under McLeish but there isn`t much success on it for me. Time will tell.

No even through the door and been shot down.

If it’s Grant that’s behind the helm then he’ll get my backing. Full time team rather than part time, training every day rather than twice a week. Shows a bit of passion on the sideline.

Not my choice but will back Grant as He is the manager of our club, Like most posters on here. It is the individuals choice to buy a ST or not.
I have never heard fans of any club getting a choice of who manages the club. Loads on here were moaning like f**k about Crawford being in charge next season. Now we have a new manager and now we have supporters throwing toys out the pram.

Whether PG would have been your choice or not (probably would not have been minefield I’m honest) If this is confirmed then the guy has to be given some respect and the opportunity to show what he can do

Nothing to be gained by destroying the man before he is even in the door, once the initial shock and disbelief has calmed down we need to back the appointment and let’s all get on with the job of supporting the club

Wouldn`t have been my first choice but to be honest you could pick holes in any of the candidates I`ve seen mentioned. If we are going for experience you won`t get anybody with an impeccable record at our level.

I`ll judge him based on what I see in front of me and not what has gone on before. On the few occasions I saw Alloa live the season before last I was impressed although I appreciate it`s a small sample size. That season they finished 6 points behind us. OK it didn`t work out for them this season but they have probably found their level-Jack Ross also got relegated with Alloa.

Looking at the positives Grant has been involved at far bigger clubs than ours and so hopefully has a good contact list-sometimes good players make good managers so if he can bring in some decent players and create a balanced squad we might do well. He also has knowledge of the division that we are in and will have seen a lot of us over the last year or two so will already have an idea of our strength and weaknesses.

I’ll await the statement from the club.

It’s somebody that’s been mentioned but I’ve never really given any thought over as genuinely didn’t think he’d be considered a strong candidate for the job.

He’s clearly impressed, fair play to him. Will it work out, I personally wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t given sufficient time before the fans turn.

If it’s true, wish him all the best. I thought we’d be looking for a higher calibre manager but we are where we are and I’ll back him.

As for season tickets, if it’s back at full capacity I’ll get one like I always do but if it’s limited capacity, ballots, watch on streams that tend to be flaky etc. I’ll keep the dosh. Who the manager is in my opinion should have no bearing.

I’m all for giving him a chance, his team will play with some passion and aggression if nothing else, something I think we have lacked recently.

Can’t compare us with Alloa, that was going to be a tough gig season on season keeping them up in a predominately full time league.

Jack Ross & Jim Goodwin only did slightly better, and have proven they can manage at a higher level.

Re: Peter Grant to Dunfermline. I can understand negativity but:

I`d expect him to be part of a revamped structure which allows a `head coach` to coach. Which he can clearly do; his teams play nice stuff.

With the right staff and better players? #DAFC"

which partly ties in with what i said on the other thread and has been hinted at by McArthur last week. guessing Grant will have little or no say in transfers and will simply coach what he is given? if that is the case then that would rule out the vast majority of names people have thrown around. another guess we will find out tomorrow on the changes too.

If anything, Grant isn`t from the merry-go-round. It was a bit of a left-field choice from Alloa as he hadn`t managed a team in Scotland.

On another thread, Polt made a pertinent point.

When there was speculation that John Hughes had been interviewed, the increase in enthusiasm and excitement was very evident on this Forum.

I can find very very few fans who were enthused about Peter Grant before the astonishing announcement.

Last Season`s tickets sales were disturbingly poor and there needs to be a revival. The club must not haemorrhage fans.

As for the comment he has a great philosophy;short list interviews are renowned for people promoted beyond all ability because they talked a good game.Often the track record was poor.However,the Board will no doubt enlighten us tomorrow.They are probably hiding under the bed at the moment.

Cheap option - Expensive option?

Let’s hope it’s the right option.

Maybe PG got pi$$ed off having to build his team from scratch every season on top of losing most of his players. Alloa played some really good passing football something we haven’t seen for a while EEP. He will have more resources & options & he’s obviously ambitious.

I’m optimistic about this appointment. Let’s see who he brings in & builds his team round.

i think the only person that said he had been interviewed was you.

"Last Season`s tickets sales were disturbingly poor and there needs to be a revival"

a thing called a global pandemic, a potential football shutdown and never getting into the ground might have had something to do with that.

"Is Jackie McNamara`s company still involved in the recruitment process for players?"

no idea, same goes for how much they were actually involved in the first place.

The investors said they would not splash the cash. This appointment fits there brief of sustainability long term. It`s not the exciting appointment we wanted but we have to give him a chance and get right behind him and the players. I have heard that he was regarded really highly by the players at Alloa for being an excellent coach.

On another thread, Polt made a pertinent point.

When there was speculation that John Hughes had been interviewed, the increase in enthusiasm and excitement was very evident on this Forum.

I can find very very few fans who were enthused about Peter Grant before the astonishing announcement.

Last Season`s tickets sales were disturbingly poor and there needs to be a revival. The club must not haemorrhage fans.

As for the comment he has a great philosophy;short list interviews are renowned for people promoted beyond all ability because they talked a good game.Often the track record was poor.However,the Board will no doubt enlighten us tomorrow.They are probably hiding under the bed at the moment.

If he can get the midfield going which seems to suit his play, then I think he’ll do well, also must have a vast array of contacts with his time in England so may be able to attract some players to us that he couldn’t get when at Alloa.

It's like I said a couple of weeks about the interview process. I understand how they work and the more candidates you see the better but I have no interest in what's happening; only whether the outcome is successful or not.

GJS93 ,quoting Alan Temple at "The Courier", has put a whole new slant on the entire proceedings.

Temple says that Peter Grant will simply be coaching in a new structure to be announced tomorrow.

If we learn Thomas Meggle will be deciding player transfers and picking the team that is a very different situation.

However, I would have liked the Board to have made an announcement before a newspaper splashed it.

It would fully explain why some Managers would not have been attracted to the club.

He played in a quite successful Celtic team. Not an adventurous player, a holding midfielder. Fond of the square ball or backward pass. From such a role he was maybe able to read the game better than most. We have to be positive, this move could be mutually beneficial. Give the guy a chance.

Alloa have produced Managers who have gone onto better things. Alloa (Jack Ross, Jim Goodwin) certainly have given us a torrid time over the last few seasons.

Also wrt signings I am sure Jackie McNamara consultants were involved in scouting so expect to see continuation in finding attractive players.

The most disappointing aspect for me is that we have found this out from a newspaper article. Who leaked it? Someone from the club or someone from the candidate`s side? Neither looks good.

I`d expect him to be part of a revamped structure which allows a `head coach` to coach. Which he can clearly do; his teams play nice stuff.
With the right staff and better players?"

Then consider the position of Thomas Meggle, who is already a director of the Club. A re-vamped structure was mentioned by Alan Temple last week.

Mmm a head coach who coaches. Peter Grant`s coaching CV extends over 20 years and is Bournemouth, West Ham, West Brom, Celtic, Birmingham City, Aston Villa, Notts Forrest, Fulham, and Scotland (U 20/U21/full team). His managerial CV is only Norwich and Alloa.

Might wait and see how things pan out. Bound to be a club announcement out tomorrow.

Football fans eh!!

Previous manager didn`t stand a chance from day one either did he.

People moaned he was too quiet on the side lines, that he looked like a statue in the dug out, sounded nervous and uninspiring in interviews, played a poor brand off football etc etc

So we then replace him after his departure with someone who is by all accounts, loud from the side lines, a bit animated in the dug out, speaks well in and sounds like he is passionate in interviews, had a part time team playing us off the park most pars fans would have said...... yet he been dismissed as having any chance of success days before its been announced (if it happens).

There are no guarantees when comes to managerial or coaching appointments especially at this level the Scottish championship. You can go through all the candidates linked or mentioned and pull out various aspects that you would say you don`t want him and you don`t want the next person.

Couple of weeks ago it was in the media about an over view of the structure for the playing side of the club, it could well be that the BOD (new investors) want a slightly different set up which may have ruled out certain candidates and Grant is the ideal candidate for them, we will have to wait and see before jumping the gun as most always do.

OK it might not be the name or character that would be headline news but we need to remember the situation we are in, the new investors are not throwing money at the playing staff, they have said that from the outset.

Alloa got relegated last season, does that mean Grant is a failure and shouldn`t be looked at by any club in the future, simple answer is no. Was he able to bring in and build a team from scratch..... no. He had to work with what he had there, but if he could keep them playing the brand of football our fans raved about when we played them, not have them as whipping boys in the league, keep them with hope staying in the league until late in the season, maybe he didn`t do the worst job there.

Take 2 of the previous managers there with Goodwin and Jack Ross, had them in similar position in the league over their time there, and 2 young managers at the time that am sure our fans would have taken in recent years.

Grant clearly has extensive coaching experience, at various levels, will have contacts far and wide, maybe the players left at the club will react better to a more old school type coach than how Crawford is, every manager is different and every player will react differently to the coach/manager.

OK its not the name I would have gone for, tbh was between a couple of names but couldn`t pick 1 clear oh yes he is a must for the job, but if it is Peter Grant, its Peter Grant, we all have players that we have favoured over the years and players that not been keen on, doesn`t mean we would not support the team and club cause of one player would it (though the way some folk wet the bed on here I wouldnt be surprised to see people stay away).

Paradoxically he had Alloha playing lovely possession football. Finally, he has media profile and that helps build momentun at the club. We`ve had little of that in the past decade. Welcome Peter :)

Let’s not forget how sensational Kevin O’Hara was under Peter Grant as well.

Would Grant have been my first choice? No. Considering some of the names thrown out there though he’s far from the worst and like many of those suggested he also has a blemish on his record in the shape of a relegation with a part time team in a full time league.

I think he ticks several boxes even if the appointment isn’t as inspiring as hoped.

1) A nicer play style. The football under Crawford was absolutely turgid and as many have pointed out Alloa played us off the park on many occasions under Grant’s stewardship. Better players ≠ better results necessarily but it will certainly go a long way as far as having an increased chance of winning is concerned.

2) More animated. Being more animated doesn’t guarantee results, of course it doesn’t but certainly if I were a player I think I’d be able to find that little bit extra if the manager is going for it on the sidelines unlike Craw who was very rarely doing anything.

3) Strong Celtic connection. This could benefit us and perhaps see us favoured when it comes to getting players on loan from Celtic. Possibly make the difference in us being able to take Euan Henderson on loan again?

We love Dunfermline We do!

Personally I feel changing a manager usually ends up in a first season upheaval and too many changes to properly challenged and I would have kept Crawford.
However change made, and he will get hopefully 2 seasons

Certainly not the most exciting appointment. Alloa have had some very good managers the last decade or so, managers who have regularly had them punching above their weight and we've admired from not so far away. Peter Grant is probably the least admired of these sadly.

I am however willing to give him a chance, he's coached at a high level. I feel that if we hit a rough patch he'll not trot out the same guff every week in interviews and by hook or crook players will be under no illusion how he wants them to play. I can't see that disorganised mess against Raith Rovers being re-enacted.

After letting the thought of Grant being our head coach sink in, I`ve accepted that even though I`m very unhappy about the appointment, it is one we all have to back - for the sake of the club. I do not have much faith in it but as I always say, I`ll be delighted if I`m wrong as I really want to see us in the top league again (or at least mounting a challenge). If this appointment becomes a nightmare, Ross McArthur should really consider his position. There have been many managerial mistakes made since he has became chairman and this should be seen as another risk, as he not succeeded as a head coach elsewhere. A manager with a decent record elsewhere might not have worked, but at least it would give the fans confidence and belief. Fingers crossed this works out.

Trying to be positive :-p

Given his last 10 years or so (pre Alloa) mainly involved with younger players and the academy setups in English Premier and Championship he should and i'd imagine will have a lot of contacts which may tie in with our medium to long term strategy in terms of player recruitment and development.

His two laddies also both professional footballers so his finger will be on the pulse in regards to that.

Also not heard anything regarding backroom staff. I know Paddy Connolly is well thought of at Alloa and has been constant coach or right-hand man to whoever takes over at Alloa going all the way back from Goodwin / Ross / Hartley respective period at the club.

Not my pick and i always thought he was a bit of an ar$e.

But if he is Pars manager he will get my 100% support as long as he is taking the team forward.

"I know Paddy Connolly is well thought of at Alloa"

saw somewhere he was staying at Alloa, Ferguson confirmed it.
backroom staff if Raymie`s post about Whittaker is right it might be him, presume Shields will stay on and Grant as a trio. wonder if Whittaker has decided to keep playing or not? will need to fill the fitness coach/sports scientist role too.

"If we learn Thomas Meggle will be deciding player transfers and picking the team that is a very different situation"

it might be Meggle or someone else doing transfers if thats what the tweet was meaning, Grant will be picking the team though thats a certainty.

Can’t be bothered reading the whole thread but so many of you morons waxed lyrical about the brilliant football Alloa were playing and how they out played us in every game. At the same time talking sh1t about Crawford on a daily basis and how you wouldn’t be back at EEP if he was in charge next season.
Now you are saying you won’t be back because we have alloa’s manager... you are all pathetic. I highly doubt you are even season ticket holders and even if you were or only just came to the odd game before.. good riddance. Spineless weirdos to a man

I just can't understand the logic behind posts like yours, Bamba. OK, Peter Grant may not be the manager you hoped the Pars would bring in, but you don't have a crystal ball, or do you?

Yes, he could turn out to be a poor appointment, but equally, he may be an inspired one. Why don't we all get behind the manager and his players for now and see where that takes us?

You never know, you and other pessimistic posters may be pleasantly surprised and Christmas could be far more cheerful than you imagine. ☺

It`s also not true to say the appointments of AJ and SC were `terrible, terrible decisions`. AJ got us out of League 1 and into the play-offs and SC improved our league position each year and also got us into the play-offs.

^^ and that could be put down to the players they lost and couldnt replace last summer. Macdonald was on loan in goal, Deas at centre half, Flannigan in midfield retired and O`Hara was the main striker.

as for the assistant, the Sun claims Shields will be the no2.

Dont think that was the case with AJ it seemed like a coup to get a manager who`d last managed in the Premier league to come to League 1.

I think for me it`s disappointing that Grant is the limit of ambitions but every chance as has been mentioned we are going to be altering the set-up. On a positive note Grant knows the league and the players in it, which will help with transfer targets and in the games themselves. Get him in the door and let`s get building a squad for next season.

I endorse the comment that AJ was NOT a terrible appointment.

I was very unhappy at the events of January 2019.

Now, having joined so many others in complimenting the Board on an interview process,a number of newspapers are stating that only Peter Grant was approached.That has taken the rug from under our feet.

One other announcement may answer a question.Who was responsible for the quite remarkable progress of a number of Pars players in the last 28 months?

Today`s news suggests we can infer it was Greg Shields.

I look forward to the Board statement.

Not sure that "remarkable" isn`t hyperbole, but given that Crawford resigned - in the true sense of the word - I think it`s fair to say that any progress was a team effort.

Having said that, I am happy if Shields stays on.

AJ was the correct appointment, it was a great decision by the board.

He shouldn't have been offered a new contract though, let alone a two year deal.

The sacking then came late, we then appointed a manager without going through an interview process.

Crawford then wasn't doing well last season although with covid we couldn't sack him

He shouldn't have been allowed to carry on as manager for this season but by all accounts the board were going to let him.


It's been mistake after mistake with regards to managerial appointments and contract decisions for a while now, hopefully Grant won't be added to the list.

We`ve got an experienced manager who knows this level of Scottish football well. Anytime I saw Alloa, they looked pretty decent, despite their lack of resources. Maybe Grant will turn out to be a bit of a dark horse. Good recruitment will be crucial.

The boy doesn't want to come here and be a failure. Dare I say it he will have his own ambitions either beyond DAFC or to take us up to the big league.
I know it isn't a gamechanger but I like to see a manager get involved in the game whether that is cajoling the players or chipping away at the ref, linesmen or other manager.
A lot has been said about the vulgar language that has been heard from him and the affect that has on others but keen to see what type of players he can bring to the club especially if they played in the championship last season.
I think we were a fairly clean team last season so don't think we will win any fair play awards this season!

Absolute ridiculous appointment complete an utter joke! People saying give home a chance?! He got Alloa relegated!! And before people say on a lower budget/part time how is that any different to Dunfermline on a lower budget to the bigger teams in the championship? I`m genuinely gobsmacked that the board have failed so badly. I will not be purchasing a season ticket.

Good appointment, well done the board and those behind the decision.
Hopefully the few numpties on here saying it’s a ridiculous decision, basically stay away when fans are allowed back.
Who cares if Alloa got relegated, show me a manager in the championship or at a level we can afford and hasn’t had a bad season or two.
Plenty experience, something new to look forward too.

To be fair to Jack Ross, he took over in December (after the club had lost 8 in a row scoring 1 goal in those games) in what was his first managerial role, Alloa finished the season with signs that things were on the improve, drawing with Rangers and beating Hibs in their last few games, when he left the following season Alloa were 2nd in League 1.

If you can afford a season ticket, are a Pars fan, and haven`t been to a game in a year in a half (come the start of a new season), I can`t see how why us appointing Peter Grant would stop you.

He`s not been some sort of Pars hate figure and, to my knowledge, isn`t some sort of unscrupulous individual. Sure, he`s maybe not your first choice, but he`ll not be there forever either.

I just can`t get my head round the mentality.

The way I look at is that he did a decent job with limited resources so hopefully he can move us up.

It's like deriding a racing driver who comes last driving a Reliant Robin when the other drivers are in sports cars. He can only work with what's at his disposal and I'd say our squad is more sports car than Reliant Robin (maybe a 15 year old MX-5 with a dodgy gearbox 😂)

What`s Dick Campbell driving then ( 5th(above us) and 7th last two seasons), understandably I don`t see many advocating him for the role.

Clutching at straws defending his record by saying they were part-time etc. He`s here because he`s had experience at big clubs and the style of play he advocates ( started last season saying he wanted "Alloa to play like Barcelona") and definitely not because he`s a successful manager.

Guys, can everyone stop squabbling with each other? The appointment has been made. Clearly, the choice has divided the fans and Grant is not everyone's cup of tea. However, we need to move on. He must be given a chance to show what he can do at our club. If it goes badly, then the board will be under some pressure for failing again. However, we have to get behind him and give him our support and see how it goes.

Alloa were 3 points from safety when Danny Lennon resigned. Ross took over and they won 2 out of 19 games and finished bottom by 10 points.No disgrace taking them down.

Looking at the season before last, Grant finished the same position as Jim Goodwin had done previously but had a better points per game record.Even last season it didn`t work out for them but they did lose a few players and goal scoring doesn`t seem to have been a problem for them. It`s just leaking them at the other end which cost them and was the opposite issue to us most of the time.

Westie, not suggesting there aren't others who could have been better options. Just highlighting you can only work with what you have.

Could we afford to pay Campbell's contract off? Did he want the job? All we know is a person applied and got the job.

Now, can we move onto the more pressing matter of the fact Grant looks like Corey Feldman's long lost brother?

I`m personally looking forward to it, no more watching frustrated whilst our manager hides behind a snood.
I was beyond bored and had largely given up under Crawford, looking forward to a new direction hopefully with s bit of dig about the team instead of looking like rabbits in the headlights.
Welcome aboard Peter, hope it goes well for us all.


This. Sums it up very well for me.

From the overall inconsistent and more than often rank rotten performances served up over the last couple of seasons there was no suggestion Stevie would be the man to get us up.
Will Peter grant be the man to do that for us? Mibbes aye, mibbes naw but at least, from the way his Alloa team played, the football should be more watchable.

This is why I’m going to enjoy this season, he comes out with stuff like this:

"They saw my CV on the football pitch," Grant says. "I don't believe in putting a CV in because, if I did, I would blow everybody else away anyway. I don't mean that disrespectfully."

and comes out with this:

"I want to be in the Premiership," he adds. "I want to take a team to the Premiership. I wanted the opportunity to do that and I have a fantastic base here."

Straight off the bat, no messing.

This, who was the last manager we had with the "will do" attitude not the "could do" safety net?
I need to say I was against this appointment as it felt like it didn't inspire....Right from the set go he has set the bar high. Expected the usual " achieve the play Offs" longer term goal promotion....


From feeling like we made a bad decision...I am coming round and actually cannot wait to see who he brings in to deliver the goods.
