 Worst in living memory ?
Topic Originator: veteraneastender  
Date:   Fri 29 Apr 23:09

I said so some while back and got mixed opinions from some of the more mature fellow sufferers.

Tonight’s performance reinforces that mindset.

Utterly depressing.

I remember getting beat 1-3 at home to East Stirling on a cold, midweek evening in the 70`s. It wasn`t a shock result.

I remember watching guys like Stuart Dall and Gavin Tait, who I doubt could lace my boots?

It doesn`t get much worse than that.

To be fair there is some competition for worst ever. But for lack of effort and desire this lot takes some beating.

Trust me there are even worse pars teams from the early 80s losing 0-3 at home to a nine man Dumbarton team, as previously mentioned 1-3 v shire in the cup.

Sometimes you have to go there to come back. 6 years ago today we won League 1. 11 years ago today we won the Championship at Cappielow. You`ve just got to hope the good times return. It`s what gets you through nights like tonight.

Aye, lots of dross efforts as one off results going back - but in terms of overall consistently poor performances this outfit are the worst I can remember.

Have we ever had a season with so few wins etc. - and goals scored ?

East Stirlingshire in the cup was actually December 1984. Like previous posters say there are many nominations for worst squad. There are established professionals who should not be at the club IMO at the moment and they are spreading their lack of enthusiasm and entitlement like a cancer through the club.

Just had another check on the league table - 5 home wins all season - must be our worst club record ever in the lower tiers ?

In saying that due to no Internet and social media we were not constantly getting battered with sh1t talk from managers and players who talk a right good game but really are not half as good as they think they are.

We just turned up on a Saturday hoping that we were better then the Saturday before.

It`s obviously a subjective judgement as to which squad was the worst in living memory but a quick look at the ParsDatabase reveals that quite a few failed to reach double figures in wins in a season. Different leagues of course, but there were a couple in the Premiership where we only managed 4 wins and one was in 1991/92 when we played 44 games!

Having been away working abroad for 27 years and returning during lockdown I’ve only been to EEP a few times since the Leishman era …….. after seeing the two recent games on TV versus Morton and Partick where I thought we looked pretty good, I thought I’d get back along to East End. So I took in the Rovers game then the Ayr game and our “magical” comeback…….ok, we weren’t very good …..but got the result. I was still sceptical of some of the negative comments on this forum about how bad we have been over the season ……… but Friday night though…….was awful……..absolute shocker. If that’s more representative of how we’ve played longer term then, yes, I see why we’re in trouble.

While in the late 80s I was home and away every week regardless……….today I’d really have to be assured of a better chance of seeing good football……..there’s a couple (or three or four) thousand of me……….

There’s still a lot of people prepared to turn out and support DAFC………how a club with such a big support (in Scottish terms) can be allowed to be where they are (lagging way behind clubs that struggle to muster more than 20% of our average gates and income) is beyond me……….not feeling overly confident of us getting through the playoffs……….

Potter’s reign was worse. This is right up there though. A truly unlikable team. Not one player has a good spirit about them. We’re miles away from thr likes of Geggan, Falky, Kirk, Cardle…truly great Pars men.

".......there were a couple in the Premiership where we only managed 4 wins and one was in 1991/92 when we played 44 games!"

With opponents like Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen etc.

I wonder how this season compares with previous bad records in the lower tiers ?

I mind them well - not fondly !!!

The Barrie Mitchell inspired relegation - then the double drop of the mid 70s.

Still better teams than this current crew.

Barry Mitchell game. Versus Dundee und.He was an utter disgrace. Avoided every tackle, and shot on goal. Willie c,sorted him at the end.Never seen a pars player, get was so much abuse during, and after a game.
Always remember, Kenny Cameron scored a really soft winner.

I feel your pain too Buffy. Something died in me that night and I`ve never managed to FULLY fall back in love with the Pars since.

It`s definitely Davie bloody Hay for me.

Hard to judge the worst squad on my living memory. However, this bunch of charlatans are definitely up there.

I`d disagree about the spirit thing. I think we have a few players who do show passion. Jakub and Pybus show good spirit, and the squad need to replicate their desire.

It was only a couple of weeks ago we were applauding the spirit shown by the players towards the end of the home game against Ayr and in the post-match celebrations. Todd, Edwards, Donaldson and McCann always show commitment and others may not be quite as extrovert in displaying their feelings.

I`m more concerned about our woeful away record over the last two seasons and whether this is evidence of some psychological issue among the players.

Spoke with a few ex pars players at the game on Friday,What came through loud and clear was lack of leadership and commitment from the current team.

I`ve been watching the Pars since 1986 and I`ve seen some truly woeful performances. It`s hard to narrow one down. Some of the dross served up from Davey Hay`s (was that his name?) team was hard to digest as was the football under Iain Munroes team had me foaming at the mouth.

In my time it would have to be the utter dross served up under Tam Forsyth. We were playing regularly to crowds in the hundreds.

I`m the same, been watching since 86. While I agree both of those were dire, Jocky Scott`s side was worse....

Forgot about Davy Hay, yes that was grim, had high hopes for him too, just seemed completely disinterested.
