Not something I'd be asking after today's gutsy performance, VEE.

I think I'm right in saying that Jimmy Calderwood was given a new, improved contract the Monday after the Pars had recorded their 7th consecutive league defeat.

That has to be worse than 4 draws and 5 defeats.

Having lowered the bar for league performances by accepting and keeping grant in a job, this weekend can only be considered an excellent weekend.

we gained a point and a few goals in the goal difference stakes on our 2 relegation rivals.

Things will be looking up……..now yogi is gone!

I guess my concern is that we're seeing what he done at Alloa. Get beat, grind out a half decent result, save his job for a week. Then that pattern continues until its too late. Today was pleasing at the end, but at the end of the day we're rock bottom of the league, with tough fixtures coming up against some in-form teams, and we risk drifting away from the pack. One good performance doesn't get him out of the woods. Next week is a worry, with gaspiutis looking unlikely to be fit.

Gaspuitis unfit? Why would that concern Grant when he has Graham waiting in the wings? Or Breen? Or Watson?

Grant came in with big ideas and is now in a relegation fight, mostly of his own making. He’s been reduced to picking the players and formation that he was told to do so on this site two months ago before his job was on the line. Alarmingly, it seems that we knew more than he did. That he is not capable of taking the Pars past the level of Stevie Crawford is obvious to everyone outside of Hamburg and the Rieperbahn.

As a coach Grant is reactive, not proactive. Thus ends the tale. We are in a league where it is claimed anyone can beat anyone else. We remain the only club who has not done so. We have beaten nobody.

Because our defence has become much more assured since he's come in.

The defence was assured BEFORE Grant came in. It only became a liability when he experimented with a back three defence that the majority of posters on here saw as a weakness, even when we won early cup ties against weaker sides. Grant is not being criticised in hindsight: he was being criticised at the time. Check this website.

The team Grant put out at Ibrox was incoherent. An attacking team on paper, but one resigned to keeping the score down and that rarely ventured beyond the halfway line. To me that was a sackable offence but in fairness probably a written warning would have sufficed.

After that Grant went for safety first but effectively has neutralised his attack. We have matched the top three sides in the division- Inverness, Kilmarnock, Raith- so Grant has to take some credit for that. But we seem incapable of actually beating anybody. And Grant has to take the credit for that as well.

I`m not sure what the record is, but I remember 1970/71 when we didn`t win until our 17th league game. (Throw in 6 winless league cup matches, and a couple of losses in the Texaco Cup, and it wasn`t the best of starts). We avoided relegation though...

Agree sammer, connolly and pybus aside that was last seasons team so what has grant actually brought to us?

To me it’s nothing a host of other mangers couldn’t have achieved including the previous incumbent.

He’s made us worse and spent a decent chunk of wage budget doing it.

Related to the title, the effect it is having on the support.
Having been at the 68 final and the good and bad years, many years as a season ticket holder I can see a worrying trend.
As personal circumstances meant I was unable to attend many games and with what is on offer I have gone to even less,while out and about on a Saturday I have met a number of die hards who despite having tickets have thrown in the towel.
While the pandemic gave us time to find other things to do, the present situation seems to have turned off even more. I can only hope things improve for everyone’s benefit.

That would have been under the stewardship of Jolly Jocky Scott, auldpar? I remember like it was yesterday, him leaning on the outside of the dugout with a bored expression, looking at his watch every few minutes, obviously wishing he was somewhere else. Took us down and threw away promotion from a seemingly unassailable position the following season and then had the brass neck to demand £90k in compensation when he was sacked....

Much improved performance yesterday, lost two sloppy goals but all in all looked more positive than in recent games. still doesn,t make Grant the man to take us on to better things, definately has shades of Alloa , playing well week in and week out and being relegated.

That was the premier division though was it not? It’s a little different when it’s the second tier of Scottish football. Also 70-71 was in the top league too. Most fans would accept us being near the bottom in the premier league surely?

We are in a 10 team league, in the second tier of Scottish football and haven’t won a game. It’s pretty embarrassing.


When was the last time we had such a bad start in the second tier?

Have to admire your optimism, Muppet. 😉

"That was the premier division though was it not? It’s a little different when it’s the second tier of Scottish football. Also 70-71 was in the top league too. Most fans would accept us being near the bottom in the premier league surely?"

Not me. I think we have the potential to establish ourselves as a Premiership club, competing regularly for a top 6 place and being there or thereabouts each season. It`s what the likes of Motherwell, Livi, St Johnstone and St Mirren (and until last season Kilmarnock) do.

"We are in a 10 team league, in the second tier of Scottish football and haven’t won a game. It’s pretty embarrassing."

It`s where we deserve to be. We haven`t been good enough in this first quarter but it`s where we are after 36 games that counts. We`ll either improve with Grant as manager or he`ll be sacked soon and someone else will be tasked with moving us up the table.

Brief look online and Craig Robertson the only one albeit he was caretaker at the time.

That could be the new record.

The Pars do hold a relegation record which stands to this day. When we were relegated in season 1971-72 from the top flight we conceded only 50 goals, a fair few less than more than half the teams in the top division. That total was the fewest goals conceded by any relegated team post-war at the time, before the league set up was changed. In the then 34 game league it was not unknown for relegated teams to ‘do the ton’-concede over 100 goals- so the defensive efforts of Arrol, McGarr, Fraser, Cushley and McNichol etc were pretty impressive. Up front was a different story obviously.

For me the most important thing is the team performance and the late equaliser. Okay we didn't win but the late equaliser shows the resilience in the team is building. It demonstrates improvement and teamwork. The victories will come.

Only 7 days to go without a league away victory in a year!
But better not be critical of the board as they are hurting too!! Crazy defensive attitude. I do well at my work but why that should be transferred onto picking a coach for my boys team is beyond me!
Last season we had a manager who had the ability to spot talent and motivation, but didn’t quite work. I have don’t see why he wasn’t promoted to a director of football roll and advised on a new manager, then surely we wouldn’t have the Charlatan!

Stevie thought he could do the job then decided he couldn`t so what makes you think he could have picked someone who could?

What`s the point of going on and on about this? Why not just let Peter Grant get on with the job as long as the board want him to? He`s been involved in professional football at a decent level for almost 40 years. He wasn`t my choice and he obviously wasn`t yours but he deserves more respect than some on here are prepared to give him.

I only wish I wasn`t so blinkered about Stevie Crawford. I felt his teams had far more potential and some of his decisions didn`t make sense to me and caused frustration.
Fast forward to present times....I am totally deflated. I cannot see any light at the end of this tunnel we are in. Grant has bought badly with a one track mindset which consisted of his formation and is now found fumbling around to try and fix a set up which just will not work.

Now sometimes I will be honest and say I feel I have watched a better standard of game in Junior level. What I will say is the players recently have been showing better efforts to turn performances around. The games we were most worried about have been draws. A couple of goals chopped off and given against which are debatable.

The players going off to applause for application on Saturday will make a difference. Hopefully we will see a better performance and result against Partick. I still want to see Grant gone as he is out of his depth. Some shopping will be needed in January for any manager that takes us on.

Have the players not went off too applause against Inverness, Hamilton and Raith? Not taking the mick but AFAIK the support at games has been supportive?

It’s taken Grant a quarter of the season to realise that Stevie set the team up in the best way. The fact it took him so long to realise and adopt this shows that he’s not nearly as good a manager as Stevie was, the result of which is that mid table is the best we can aspire to, when in reality we should be top two with our squad.

Grant after what happened at the QOS game and the subsequent board statement and everything that went on with RM and the general feeling of disconnection between fans and club. The fact the fans applauding the team off on Saturday takes a different light than what it did against Raith and Hamilton.

That`s more my point and not saying that fans have not been supportive we have that`s the reason the board statement caused so much fall out/Anger. It felt like a slap to the puss.

The ICT away goal (17/18) in the last minute was a fantastic feeling putting us into the play offs, was still horse an hour later.
This season ICT draw deserved the applause, it felt like there was a turn around, however the loss & draws since haven’t improved.

Exactly

Bottom of the Championship and playing at home and it’s expected that the away team will “thrash us” is exactly where expectations are.
Every week more straws are clutched to excuse the unacceptable place we are in, keep it up you’ll be blaming the pitch at Kelty shortly.

I think you`ve twisted my sentiments a wee bit there, Wsk. I wasn`t expecting a thrashing but the doom-mongers were. The problem is, no matter what happens now, for some folk PG and the team will be judged on what has already gone and can`t be changed. For me the biggest problem to overcome now is the lack of confidence resulting from that horrific spell when we were gifting goals and making it easy for the opposition. Hopefully Saturday`s display and the last-gasp equaliser will help to boost confidence.

ETA - I see Aberdeen have given Stephen Glass a vote of confidence after a 10-game winless run, including defeats in their last 5 games.

If the optimists are allowed to get on their high horse when they're called " happy clappers " .
Is it OK for me as a bit of a pessimist to get annoyed at the term " doom monger " ?
Fwiw , I thought we'd get a doing on Saturday and was absolutely chuffed when we equalised.
Even if I was pessimistically 50 yards down the halbeath road when we scored !

Oh well, optimism overcame pessimism on Saturday. I would have been as sick as a parrot if I`d missed that goal.

I find it strange that some on here appear to be unable to distinguish between short term targets and medium/long term targets.

Are parrots particularly susceptible to sickness, PARrot? I`ve always wondered what the origin of `sick as a parrot` was.

I did say "they" meaning the players and not "us" meaning the fans. Each to their own though.......I`ve thoroughly enjoyed coming away from some games after snatching a draw.

Falconbridge as mentioned above clearly one of the picks of the bunch.

“Not me. I think we have the potential to establish ourselves as a Premiership club, competing regularly for a top 6 place and being there or thereabouts each season. It`s what the likes of Motherwell, Livi, St Johnstone and St Mirren (and until last season Kilmarnock) do.”


So do I but let’s face it, if you were giving the fans a choice of being bottom of the championship or the Premier league, I know which one most would pick.

Also it’s a bit optimistic thinking of establishing ourselves in the premiership when in 5 years we haven’t managed to mount a decent challenge for the title.

Who knows how long it is going to take for us to put in a serious challenge for
the league. AJ,Crawford and Grant haven’t cut the mustard so far that’s for sure.

The 2-2 at Falkirk when we came from 2 down. Kept us top of the league as well I’m sure. Just before all the admin kicked off.

I like black and white (dreaming of black and white)

Maybe comes from Freddy (Parrot Face) Davis. Who was, "Thick, thick, thick up to here."
Of course, his two front teeth were missing, pending a Christmas present, so he wasn't suggesting parrots are intillectually challenged.

I couldn`t resist the opportunity to ruffle your feathers !!!

A dollop (?) of pot and kettle - I regularly have to check spelling of words that don`t seem right to the eye.

Those that have double letters are usual suspects - for years I couldn`t spell accommodation, for example, without a second opinion.

Is`nt that an avian condition which afflicts psittacines - especially the Norwegian Blue species ?

I think it's got more to do with Minahs, and possibly coal tits.
