 Grant stay or Go ??

Enough is enough, he must walk tonight! The fans have to stand up and make our voices heard. We are in free fall. Protest at the next home match if required?

His position is untenable now. Inverness, hamilton and rovers in the next 3 and we’ll be lucky to score a goal never mind win any of them.

The issue is for me is that we are giving teams a 2 or 3 goal start every game and we have yet to play the likes of ICT and Killie. We are in freefall and although it is early days we need to act now before our season becomes simply about avoiding Relegation.

Squad has a few decent players in it da no 1 but it`s totally imbalanced and has far too many players who aren`t Championship quality. When you look where we`re struggling it`s the spine of the team - goalkeeper, centre half and centre midfield - so without that being addressed the few good players we have in Dow, Thomas, Kennedy, Comrie, Wighton etc are as well as not being there.

Hopefully he will send back Graham to United never a fitba player
and some of the rest can go also , not near good enough , His comments about taking us out of this league were correct but now i can see he meant getting us relegated

Go. One positive I can say is I think he has been good at getting the right person (s) to support and assist Lewis Martin back from injury.

What else...nothing

Poor tactics
Poor set up v certain teams
Almost entirely poor recruitment
Bad attitude

What is he working on the training pitch. Last 3 league games we have let in two goals in first half. And he has a ton of defenders

BEAST!

Definitely time for Grant to go. I was very surprised the board made the decision to replace Crawford ( who got us to the play offs) with a manager who got his team relegated. Surely if you replace a player or manager you choose someone who is better. I was willing to give Grant a chance and the cup games showed that we could score goals. Sadly the defensive problems in the cup games haven’t be rectified & Grant doesn’t look like he knows how to fix this situation. Instead giving the players the blame at any opportunity. We need some new in pronto that can get our defence organised before were in a relegation battle.

From another perspective, at what point does Grant realise this is not going to impove and it is not doing his future prospects any good. When does he simply say, "This has not worked out perhaps it is best for all parties that we part company"?

Go.

The only reason you`d keep a manager despite such poor results is if he has a plan for improvement that needs time to work. However, there`s no evidence of improvement, and no evidence of a plan even.

As well as damaging our points position, he`s damaging morale among the players and support, and the longer the board let that continue, the longer it`ll take it get it back.

Away the Pars!

This has gone almost as far as it should be allowed without us risking being in a relegation play off come the end of season.

There comes a time where you need to look at business interests and do what is required to turn it around even if that means sustaining an immediate financial hit, because looking forward all i can see is a big drop in income from stay away fans and 1st division football

The BOD are to blame for this. They have only appointed one half decent manager in Allan Johnston then failed to recognise he had taken the club far enough.

We are atrocious. Graham and Mehmet should never play again!

We are going to get ‘horsed’ in the next 3 games as well by Raith, Hamilton and ICT!!

Presently we are shipping 3 goals a game.

The formation & tactics don’t work - we need to change them.

If Grants not willing to change them then he needs to go.

The board/Germans are going to be faced with a dilemma - lose Grant or the support on our present form you cant hold onto both.


This is a shambles to top all others at EEP.

When all the signings were getting announced I was really excited and thought we could look forward to a season where we could really challenge.

Don`t know how much longer we can give him a chance where we seem to be getting the same terrible performances every week.

Who could replace him? Especially given that PG (a guy who, regardless of circumstances, managed a team that got relegated from the division we are trying to get out of) appeared to be the best option available the last time.

Even with no manager we`d probably experience some kind of "bounce" and get a few more points on the board.

Despite not seeing any sense in hiring him, I was prepared to give him time. But every game since Partick Thistle in the cup (where we won due to them having a capitulation) we've been dominated for the majority of the matches and defensively have been all over the place, with no sign of improvement. We aren't exactly giving youth a chance, playing attractive attacking football or getting results, so surely he's failing on every objective?

We just got gubbed by a team who parted ways with their manager 2 days ago, it's about weighing up the risk of keeping grant on and hoping he'll turn it around or paying the money and getting in somebody who has a half decent record without all his pals hiring him everywhere he's been. Not saying you can get someone in to guarantee results but leave it any longer and we risk doing a Partick Thistle/Falkirk

The problem you’ve got, who’s going to take the gig and is he going to get the time to clear this mess up.

He has to work with players like Mehmet, Dorrans & Graham on 2yr deals.

If any decent manager had sense they wouldn’t touch us right now.

BOD can’t let this go on much longer, there is absolutely no light at the end of the tunnel. Germans need to take control away from RM on all football related matters.

Performances are getting no better, shipping goals and playing players that clearly are not good enough or don’t know how to play the tactics they are being asked.

If he would just take an ounce of responsibility, there may be hope, but he has not got a clue. We are losing 3 goals a game with not even a slight indication he knows where the problem lies. Have to wonder if Alloa wouldve stayed up under someone else. Considering he was sacked says even their expectation was to stay up

Nonsense. If anything is going to happen it will be discussed between board members then he will be called into the office for the chat. Nothing is likely to be made public until at least midday on Monday.....unless he resigns.

Did Stevie resign or was he pushed out the door to make way for Grant. If Stevie had been given the money that Grant had been given, I bet we wouldn't be stranded at the bottom of the league. I would have him back on Monday, he at least would play players in the correct positions.

That`s a new one! Not so long ago the board were being criticised for not getting rid of SC after failing to get us promoted. Now it`s being suggested they got rid of him to make way for their preferred candidate!

My understanding is that the board were completely taken by surprise when Stevie announced he wanted to resign.

True (edit: referring to last sentence). Stevie was certainly getting more out of these players.

Whilst I think Grant is hopeless and comes across VERY poorly in interviews, there does seem to be an attitude with some of the players. Perhaps it's frustration as being left out or played out of position, or perhaps they just have bad attitudes. Grant's attitude seems to be "it's all YOUR fault" whereas Crawford was more "it's all MY fault". There needs to be an in-between.

My concern would be if Thomas has an attitude. If he does, then he should go. I used to manage someone who was great at their job but had a disruptive attitude. Not only did my team improve when they finally left, but relationships with my team improved. The most amusing thing was that the person left expecting us to beg them to stay then gave it the "good luck, you're going to need it!". They've not done particularly well and won't ever be employed by me (I inherited them).

Grant signed most of these players. He identified them as being suitable to fit into our club and his team. If neither of those were the case or these players attitudes have suddenly appeared he's to blame. No one else

He has to go. What positive thing has he brought to the team? We cannot keep letting teams score early and we do nothing! If this is left for another few weeks/ months then it’s relegation for us. I don’t know what the financial situation is like however the league below will surely cost us? So frustrating. This is the worst I have seen Dunfermline since administration - even then we had players who wanted to make it work because they had some passion about them on the pitch. Just feel sorely disappointed with the decisions made.
