The club will be the worse for it if it’s true, no matter what your opinion is on his (and the BOD)decisions Ross has done wonders for the club

Would be bad news for our club (as fans) if he were to step down as chairman.
He has my utmost respect for stepping up to the plate in 2013 & later when he took on the post as Chairman of DAFC, he has made sure things are as transparent as they can be

Whoever is in the post of Chairman & whoever is on the BoD, both wrong & right decisions will continue to be made……….. it’s the nature of the beast

A huge shame if true. I don`t agree with some of his decisions over the years but this isn`t how this should have ended. He`s a top guy.

A worrying thing for me is who is releasing information like this before it comes from Ross or the club itself? I`m 100% sure the page that posted it isn`t affiliated with the club. If it is true then that info shouldn`t be getting out before the official word.

I don’t like that either, Toun Clock.

Ross doesn’t deserve any of this.

It’s annoying when people’s only challenge is who could do a better job. The fact is Ross has been making bad decisions with managers and how he speaks to the fans and people are very entitled to be pissed about that and not be required to assume the grass won’t be greener if we make a change.

People's only challenge?

You mean apart from the role he played in keeping the club alive, the unbelievable amount of time, effort and personal expense he's gone to for the Pars and the fact he has delivered investment totalling hundreds of thousands of pounds towards new training facilities and academy..?

Hostility was brewing for a while and there are always eejits that over step the mark, and if the stories are true on the abuse then they need the book thrown at them, but you know what, that’s not going to happen because RM is a bigger person and is testament to his character.

It’s a shame he’s stepping aside, and despite the rumours of the abuse, the way the article was worded really was a big own goal, whoever was responsible for producing it, that last paragraph was so provocative that it made things worse when I didn’t think that was really possible.

If he is stepping aside then a big thanks, and clearly hope he feels comfortable sitting back in his original seat in the NW.

Except that all the "incidents" and abuse took place before the statement, which may have contributed to its confrontational tone.

If they were going to mention it, they should have detailed exactly what had happened.

I think the original disbelief at the tone of the statement subsided when news broke of Ross getting a nail through his tyre and being spat at. If they`d said that, it would have been difficult to get too upset about it being called out in a statement.

Maybe can't mention it if there's criminal proceedings to follow.

Hopefully there is to expose a couple of the complete roasters for what and who they are.

Unfortunate that the circumstances have made him stand down, but the amount of people on here over the last few weeks that have criticised him it's not surprising.
Maybe it's the right time anyway. It looked like he had taken us as far as he could, as he realised without the German investors we would struggle to push on. (although the season suggests otherwise) He should be remembered for the good work he done at the time of saving us. Many will remember him for other things. Let's just hope whoever steps up is able to push us on to the next level, whether he or she is a pars fan is irrelevant, we all want the same thing. Success

Appreciate that GG but 99% of the fan base wouldn’t have heard of the incidents that occurred at the time the statement was aired.

It was either not mention at all or provide more specific details when it’s being called out. They ended up trying to reference it but in a way that’s alienated the fans by wording it in a way that can be construed as it being directed at a wider population of fans. They do reference ‘a handful’ at QOTS but then they go on about behaviour over the last few weeks casting a wider net.

It was poorly worded and a bit more transparency would no doubt have led to a more sympathetic response.

Do they bring in there own person. A payed chairman to run things .

Cheap option and upgrade someone from the BOD.

Every football club in Scotland pretty much is trying to do things as cheaply as they can so they can spend as much as possible on the playing staff.

Where is the money coming from to pay for the chairman?

I can't argue with any of that, Berry, but knowing Ross, I'd imagine he wasn't keen to point the finger at specific fans. Some of these incidents took place in the weeks before Dumfries.

If this is true it’s a dark day for the club. People with the calibre of Ross McArthur are few and far between. I don’t believe anyone could imagine the amount of time, effort and money that he’s put in on behalf of DAFC and for him to be hounded out in this manner is utterly despicable. Frankly it’s almost impossible to imagine the type of people - and I presume they are human - who would have perpetrated such acts on an upright, decent man and all because their warped sense of “belonging” to a football club led them to believe that they had some entitlement. I’m not going to stoop to insults but these individuals are below contempt. Oh, and by the way, I’m no fan of Peter Grant but as a “supporter” of the Pars of some fifty years standing I accept that things don’t always please you: that’s the role of being what they call a “supporter”. You follow the club through thick and thin - the few hundred of us regulars who pitched up week after week when we were in the lower reaches of the Scottish Football Leagues can testify to that. So good luck to those on this forum and elsewhere who have the remarkable vision to see what the next affordable step is and who can contribute meaningfully to its realisation. In my personal view this is the start of a journey to hell in a handcart.

The despicable behaviour against him has been the worst I have ever seen as a life long PARS fan and a very dark time in our history. I would like to see the people responsible for all of it sorted out and if need be banned from EEP. To do this to a decent person like Ross, can only convince me we have some scummy people in our midst at EEP.

Unfortunate that the circumstances have made him stand down, but the amount of people on here over the last few weeks that have criticised him it's not surprising.
Maybe it's the right time anyway. It looked like he had taken us as far as he could, as he realised without the German investors we would struggle to push on. (although the season suggests otherwise) He should be remembered for the good work he done at the time of saving us. Many will remember him for other things. Let's just hope whoever steps up is able to push us on to the next level, whether he or she is a pars fan is irrelevant, we all want the same thing. Success


The season suggests otherwise!

I know that me and the Volunteers at the DASC DONATION SHOP & TEA ROOM, will be devastated if Ross steps down. He has helped us always if/when we needed it. The despicable behaviour against him has been the worst I have ever seen as a life long PARS fan and a very dark time in our history. I would like to see the people responsible for all of it sorted out and if need be banned from EEP. To do this to a decent person like Ross, can only convince me we have some scummy people in our midst at EEP. Anyway, it is always our way for the decent PARS FAMILY to find the strength to get on with the task in hand.

COME ON YE PARS .



Banned from eep if need be steaua !
That's the very least that should happen .
I would lock these low life's up if they can be found .
I may not agree with some of RM's decisions , but it has to be recognised the hard work and dedication he has given to our club .
Absolutely disgraceful way to treat anyone .

Bit harsh. I agree it probably is time for RM to step back, but only if there is someone ready to step in and do as much as he has for the club. I don't think PG was the right man for the job, but the decision wasn't made by RM on his own.

In any business you should review and reshuffle if need be. However, you shouldn't have board members being pushed out due to idiots taking physical actions.

I completely understand why Ross (and his long-suffering family) might feel that enough is enough, but if he does step down then it will be DAFC's darkest day since administration, as it will represent a victory for ignorance and bad behaviour.

Subject to what the other directors and owners are happy with, some sort of sabbatical might be the way forward, which would allow him to recharge his batteries and come back refreshed.

If that isn't practicable and he still chooses to resign as Chairman it would be great if he were willing to continue at the club in some senior role that could best utilise his enormous talents and energy.

Without Ross McArthur DAFC would be a much weakened club.

No one deserves this over a bloody game of football and especially not a man who has given ten years of his life (not to mention cash) to the club. Trust me when I say this... There would not be a Dunfermline Athletic if were not for that man. Sure many of us stood up to the plate but it was Ross's leadership, intelligence and people skills that got us over the line.

Since we narrowly missed liquidation 8 years ago he has worked dilegently to improve every aspect of the football club, including putting us in the best financial position we've probably ever been in and whilst results on the footballing side have not been what we expected this season, it does not excuse the excessive behaviour from an element of our suppport. Mistakes might have been made but to err is human.

It is widely rumoured that Ross will walk next week and I for one cannot blame the man if he decides to take this course of action. He truly is at the end of his tether. This may well put future investment into our club in severe jeapordy too.

These are dark times for our club and to be honest, after 52 years of supporting them, I've never felt so out of love with DAFC. What does it say about us that a man like Ross is treated with such disrespect and potentially hounded out the door. The self entitlement is just off the scale!

It truly didn't help the situation, Grant and if you don't believe that the hysteria you and others helped to generate didn't contribute to the toxic atmosphere, you're either very naive or in denial.

Having said that, it takes a man to hold his hand up and admit his mistakes. Only you and Billy knew about your conversation but you've gone public with what's tantamount to an apology, which is admirable of you.

Grant mainly attacked his/the board's appointing of managers, which is open for debate.

Calling for him to resign on the back of that didn't make much sense to me as it doesn't change the dynamics of the decision making, but he wasn't really stoking the flames.

He did back up Muppet Par at one point, but we all get caught up in the throes of a discussion sometimes...

I for one do not believe in Rumours about anything especially about Ross stepping down ! I will believe if it is an official statement on the DAFC website but not from other sources
If he did I would not blame him for the abuse damage to personal property etc, he is getting at the moment no decent person should be treated like this ! Good grief it is only a game of football I am as passionate as the next person when it comes to the Pars , there are lot`s of things I do not like just now IE: Peter Grant as manager and not a win in the league to date formations and signings but I have seen lots of ups and down over the years but never this sort of behaviour and there is no place for it at EEP and all the gossiping and rumours and bad talking needs to stop now also !!
If he did step down he would only be letting the few Morons that are guilty of these crimes win !!! and hopefully he sees it this way also , those who are guilty I hope when caught they get the book thrown at them
I am sure Ross would be the first to admit he has made a mistake or two whilst being Chairman ,We all know in his heart he is a true Pars Supporter and any decisions good or bad made by him he was always thinking of the clubs best interests ! tell me the person that hasn`t made a mistake ?? Exactly That person has not been born yet !!!!
In these times we all need to stick together and see this through till things come right again which I am sure they will , patience is a virtue and the vast majority of supporters I am sure are decent people who condemn such actions of a few allegedly Pars supporters because we all end up getting tarred with the same stick , so hopefully the guilty will be caught and punished soon
Cmon Ye Pars

Sorry if I have rambled on a bit , just disappointed at the things going on against decent human beings at our club , time for us all to unite

WE NEED ANSWERS.

But.. anyone who decides PG is the man to take DAFC forward shouldn't be at the helm to be fair. Germans should just take 100% stake and wipe them all off the board and get their own BOD in. Could all wear the same uniforms too so it looks nice and tidy.


You need to get those blinkers off and look at his managerial record, his coaching career is irrelevant, he’s our manager, not our coach.

PG kept part-time Alloa up in his first season playing decent football. You could say they were punching above their weight. Unfortunately they were relegated last season, not helped by us signing his leading goalscorer. It’s not as if they went down like Brechin.

PG took over at Norwich when they were in the bottom three and kept them up. In the next season they were stuck in the bottom three and he RESIGNED. It has to be pointed out that his best two strikers were sold against his wishes, one of them being Rob Earnshaw.

It doesn’t set the heather on fire but neither is it the worst. There were extenuating circumstances at both clubs, just look at how we fared after Nicky Clark left us. I can also vouch that Norwich had a style that was easy on the eye when he was manager.

I can understand why the BOD decided to give him a chance. What I can’t understand is how PG has got it so spectacularly wrong. I can only hope that his record of keeping teams up in his first season holds true for this season.

I'm not denying that Ross has been abused. However the attack that was deemed to happen at the game against Raith Rovers I find strange. I'm assuming that our directors were sitting in the old corner stand. At the end of the game our fans were quite happy as we had fought back to draw the game and the team were applauded at the end. Perhaps it was a rogue Rovers fan who carried out the assault.

Can we not go down the old firm route of trying to proclaim it's fans of other clubs.

It'd be odd for a Rovers fan to recognise our chairman, and to then feel he has the familiarity to then use his first name.

Great post from Honk. What RM and his family has been subjected to is appalling - especially given what he has done for the club. Criticism is fine but the nastily vitriolic and aggressive abuse aimed at RM, the rest of the Board (including our new investors), manager and some players is not. The comment at the end of the board statement criticizing the behaviour of a handful of fans seems entirely justified given what has happened. I also interpreted the statement as indicating Peter Grant doesn’t have long to start winning. I hope RM doesn’t step down because then the nasty bullies win and damage the club. We mustn’t lose sight of the positive long term strategy to progress the club made possible by the recent investment by our new majority owners with the aim of building on what we have been doing.

Back on topic. I've been privileged to know and collaborate with Ross for several years.

I retired from teaching in 2011 and approached the Pars about an idea I had to use our players as role models in local primary schools, to consolidate what they learn in the Health & Wellbeing section of the Curriculum for Excellence. If we gave participating children a comp ticket each this would be mutually beneficial to the Pars and the school children. A director told me the club had tried that and it didn't work. It was a massive disappointment.

I tried again after the new BoD was installed in late 2013. Billy George suggested I speak to Ross McArthur. Ross couldn't have been more helpful or enthusiastic. He said that the club's reputation had been badly damaged when it went into administration and that he wanted to rebuild it and make it the focal point of the West Fife community. He spoke to the manager who allowed me to speak to the players and the 'Pars Tackle Health' programme was born. At the same time,Ross introduced me to two teachers from other schools who had recently retired and were also Pars fans. We put our heads together and came up with two other initiatives, 'Tours for Schools ' (a stadium tour) and 'Pars Stars in the Media' (a literacy programme.)

During the time the Schools Engagement Programme was running ( it was halted by the Covid pandemic in March 2020) Ross was always hands on. He was out to see it in operation for himself, asking if there was any more the club could do, how well the players were representing the Pars and the level of feedback from pupils and teachers. Ross was keen for U-12s to be able to attend Pars games for free. Around 5,000 had the opportunity to do this from 2014-2020.

Ross has been a fantastic Chairman and a great ambassador for the club. We can ill afford to lose him at such a critical time.

Cheers, BPP. You'll maybe understand why I was a bit irked by H2H's post, suggesting it was about time (Ross stepped down.) It was like suggesting the cowards who abused him and his family and vandalised his car had done us all a favour.

H2H likes to provoke a reaction and he got what was no more than a mild rebuke, imo.
I'm surprised you wanted me to translate it, given you're fluent in Italian. Were you trying to get me my first card after 15 years of impeccable behaviour. Stanza had a go earlier - with friends like that, who needs enemies. ☹

Nothing crazy about your idea, Rasta and totally agree with Indiapar, but I fear it may already be too late.

I reckon Ross might get a bit embarrassed if the crowd, en masse, started singing his name. If they did, I guess it would send a message though. More likely, one or two would try and start it and it wouldn`t really take off.

The crowdfunding is a better idea but I doubt he`d pocket the cash - plus we don`t know how much we`d be aiming for.

So...before we found out Ross had been verbally attacked and spat on and whatever else, nearly everyone lambasted him for his part ( allegedly ) in the now famous statement.

Now we`re being asked to give him a round of applause and chant his name and show him the love on Sat.

God the guy won`t know whether he`s coming or going !!.

For as much as I abhor the crap he had to endure I don`t think doing that on Sat is the best action.

Brian said on another post, if fans want to express their feelings about what`s happening they should email the club.
Well i think that is what fans should do in this instance.
And let there still be a protest about the other stuff that`s happened because people were certainly passionate about it at the time.
But you certainly can`t do both on the same day.

Or, am I missing something and the protest has been binned ?

I suspect the issue is that there was no context to the statement. Most fans assumed the final paragraph related to RM getting a bit of stick from fans, which is understandable given the results. What fans didn't know was about spitting and vandalism. That is 100% not on.

There was no context..
I've never been an advocate of this McArthur out crap...of course as support we acknowledge mistakes but ffs things have got out of hand.

Anyone who has met the man or knows him will know how deeply this has hurt him.
I hope the perpetrators of the sickening, pathetic attacks never go to EEP again with an easy mind, I hope they know everyone else there wants to know who they are...and they are not welcome...to the extent they can't even enjoy a goal.

I'll be astounded if Ross decides to carry on. He has been hurt very badly by these events because he's a Pars man through and through and he has suffered at the hands of those who claim to love the same club.

I'm sure if he'd been set upon and beaten up by fans of another club, it wouldn't have wounded him as much - he'd have put it behind him and continued as Chairman, more determined than ever.

IMO he absolutely deserves criticism for it. ( not abuse btw) along with all the kudos and appreciation he has received for saving the club etc.

I couldn’t care less if he stays or go’s.,like I imagine 95 percent of our fans. If he stays , fine. He can get on with turning things round starting with dealing with PG.

Crossgates does realise, I am sure, that Ross has effectively been the Chief Executive Officer for eight years, He has done this without pay. In this time, Falkirk have spent about £50 k per annum on a CEO. This amounts to £400k since 2013. That`s £400k more that has been spent on the team.

As far as I know the Manager is appointed by the Board, and certainly the Board will have to address the current situation sooner rather than later especially in the event of another defeat. I am sure they will.

Well I suppose we'd already had the posts doubting if the events had happened, questions whether it could have been Rangers fans, it's only natural that we jumped the shark. Absolutely wild.

Think it's more likely that McArthur wouldn't have wanted the specific events out in the public discourse, however after the pile on with regards to the statement people who know McArthur and knew about the events, and evidently a bit sick of seeing there mate take a virtual booting, have put them out there to give a bit of context.

That's just me hypothesising, but I personally beleive it to be more likely than Billy George of all people being some form of plant. This forum man, conspiracy theories are wild. It'd genuinely be funny if the events surrounding it weren't so grim.

Like I said thank you and that`s a big thank you. But it`s time to look forward and stop looking over our shoulders as a club that about went bust.
Hearts and a number of clubs were in the same boat as ourselves, where are they and where are we .
Stop looking through the RM and the BOD tinted glasses
It`s time for a fresh start
It`s time for a reshuffle from the BOD .
It`s time for the new owners to step up and show they mean business
It`s time , ITS TIME.
