Not sure I`d really have a go at Wighton not being played in his best position.

As for Chalmers the boy needs to play like a world class footballer to win pars fans over. He gave away a poor ball that gave them a chance but other than that I thought he was OK.

But being OK probably isn`t going to be enough.

Chalmers put one pass to an Alloa player then fate lands on him with the penalty.

Apart from that he did nothing wrong. His passing was good.

Quite a number of other players couldn’t get past the first man.

Wighton appeared to me to run out of steam despite going deep at times.

The fact a couple of youngsters are starting ahead of chalmers tells you how highly he is rated by the staff who have spent the whole preseason with him. That’s pretty damning.

I’m sure we are actively trying to offload a few of these players to other teams, so far no takers.

What irritated me about Chalmers wasn’t anything to do with what he did with the ball. He made a couple of good passes and only gave it away once, I think. It was the fact he came on when our midfield were tiring. In the time he was on though, it still seemed like the tired midfielders still on the park both did a lot more running/pressing of Alloa players than he did.

Given the high energy press/work rate McPake demands, and we saw from Todd, Allan and Hamilton, it made Chalmers stand out. He made some good passes, but the fact he walked/jogged everywhere when we were needing a goal was frustrating.

I also don’t think a poor 45 minutes, from the whole team (not just one or two players) is worthy of the meltdown from some fans though.

Chalmers was only on the park for 17 minutes but somehow he was instrumental in us not winning the game according to some. If he was the shirker he`s often portrayed as on here he wouldn`t have volunteered to take a penalty. Some Pars` fans love a scapegoat though.

Stephen Simmons, Paul George, Jim Paterson, Bryn Halliwell, Bobby Ryan and Jamie Mole are examples of players who were much worse - in their time with us, at least. To be honest, I’m not even sure Chalmers was our worst player last season and he certainly wasn’t our worst player today.

I absolutely agree with this. If the keeper saves then fair enough, but ffs even duff kick would be on target. Our bench today, nobody could change the game. Well short on quality. I feel I have said this for the last three seasons. I remember Johnston saying McCann has potential. Time for him to go on loan somewhere. I feel he has had enough chances to show us he has potential.

Nonsense. The majority of pro footballers can tuck away pens for fun - in training. It`s a bit different during a game or in a shoot out. It`s called pressure.

Italy will not be at the Qatar WC because Jorginho missed two pens in two games v Switzerland. He rarely misses for Chelsea. I think you`d agree he`s a far better midfielder than Chalmers?

Over on the East End Bounce forum two posters were blaming Chalmers for Alloa`s goal. Somebody posted a transcript of the commentary to prove that he wasn`t on the pitch at the time. Were they joking or is this some kind of condition where people are so prejudiced against someone that their mind convinces them they are responsible for something they had nothing to do with? Either explanation is quite worrying.

Joe Chalmers is an absolute disgrace. I can accept a player playing a bad mass, mistiming a tackle etc but he just simply doesn’t try. He’s lazy, lacklustre and literally looks like he’d rather be anywhere else. I do have my suspicions that the penalty miss yesterday was deliberate given the way he plays. I can’t remember a player we’ve paid money for ever being as bad/lazy as he is.

The only plausible explanation for Chalmers’ performances is that he is secretly a diehard Falkirk fan and has a massive hatred for all things Dunfermline. I can also confirm that Chalmers shocking attitude is not solely on Saturday’s, it is day in day out in training too.

Wighton is not a winger that much is clear, Mcpake said in the supporters meeting we would have to lean in to the fact we were top heavy for the time being and due to the `slow market` we`ve been unable to add any wide players which has now cost us.

As for Chalmers he won`t even play when Dorrans is fit and Hamilton is back from suspension but I hope we don`t see too much of him this season. The bare minimum Mcpake said he expects from his players is to leave everything out there on the pitch and Chalmers hasn`t had that attitude once since he came in.

If that pen is a couple inches lower then people are saying it’s an excellent pen right into the roof of the net.

I actually don’t think Chalmers is as bad as everyone is making him out to be. He will be “ok” in league one.

That being said and if the above comments are true about him deliberately playing poor (which I don’t believe) then who could blame him. Some of the shouts from the top of the Norrie on Saturday were embarrassing. I’ve heard opposition players get less grief than what he got.

Utter nonsense. The bare minimum fans should expect from players is effort and Chalmers doesn’t even provide that. If you’re happy with a player who half heartedly strolls about each game then fair enough but I certainly won’t be sitting quietly watching that. Also what a ludicrous thing to say regarding the penalty - he missed and cost us the additional point which would’ve seen us through to the next round. Some people say he’s being used as a scapegoat - he wouldn’t get half as much negativity if he actually bothered trying

I would love Chalmers to come good but even the Ayr fans did not hide their delight when he moved to us. He has been far from good enough since he has joined and that`s why he`s dropped down the pecking order in the midfield. With Hamilton being suspected next week I`d imagine Chalmers will start unless we make any signings. I would be delighted for him if we get a win and he performs well but he needs to put in a shift, especially if the opposing team breaks and be a bit more positive.

As for Wighton, he has shown how good he can be but consistency is an issue for him. Playing him in his natural position would make a big difference. Sadly, we are lacking players who can take a man on at the moment.

I’m not a fan of Chalmers either but I think there’s some ott criticism on here. He may appear lazy to some because his game doesn’t involve him running with the ball like Todd and Allan. He moves the ball quickly and has a high pass success rate but not enough telling passes as far as I’m concerned.
The “not trying” comments on here are nonsense.

I don`t get why Wighton is in the thread title, we regressed horrendously when he went off, left wing isn`t his best position but he still done well enough.

Likewise calling Todd a luxury player is just miles off the mark, it is literally the opposite of what he is.

Much like last year I thought players were getting hung out to dry by playing a system they weren`t suited too, the same happened on Saturday. And that doesn`t just effect the players playing out of position, it has a knock on effect for others.

By shoe Horning players like Wighton out wide the service to the strikers isn`t great, so McCann doesn`t look as good. Likewise allot of onus is on our centre mids to be the creator, but quite frankly none of them are, that`s not an insult because this players are hard to come by at this level.

But if we had a wide player or two, then Todd and Hamilton would be a very good pairing, neither of them have the eye, or the weight of pass to be a consistent threat as an attacking force. But again, that wouldn`t be a drama if we actually had some creative players...

This is unfortunately spot on. Looking at our starting 11 and bench I feel like we’re still 5 or 6 players short of a title winning team. Can’t see that many coming in so I fear long season.

There’s no luxury players in our team anymore, not a single players to get excited about watching either.

If the opposition score first in this league who has the quality in our team to unlock a team sitting back?


Unfortunately, I do think this is a valid point. Best 2 players so far have been Benedictus and Hamilton. Both are largely there to make it tough for the opposition to score. I’d argue 2 of our best finishers are currently being forced to play out wide and our striker with the worst ‘finishing’ is our main central threat. McCann missed 2/3 really good chances on Saturday and that seems to be a running theme. I’d feel much more comfortable with actual wingers/creative midfielders trying to create chances for Wighton/O’Hara/Todorov.

I think McCann’s a decent player, but to get the best out of him, we’d need to play him with a partner. Scoring goals is probably the weakest aspect of his game. Wighton and O’Hara don’t seem to be getting into the box enough to get into scoring positions and if they do go into the box, we have nobody to get the ball to them. It’s a very unbalanced team right now, but I do believe the manager will be aware of that and trying to sort these issues.

Here`s hoping we have appointed a manager who isn`t too stubborn & set in his ways to admit the set-up isn`t right & can correct it as & when required.

Unlike the buffoon we appointed in November 2021.
