 All I want for Christmas
Topic Originator: onandupthepars

is Kevin Nisbet (or similar.)

I think a proper goalscorer would make all the difference for us. Would trade O`Hara, Todorov, Wighton for one good `un.

(Keep McCann for effort.)

No point if there`s no service. The front 3 are so far apart they`re playing in different postcodes.

For what it’s worth o’hara would have at least worried them in behind yesterday as he has a bit of pace and makes intelligent runs.

Watching toddy and McCann up there miles apart running about but with no quality on the ball shows how far as a team we’ve fallen and the problem area. McCann has only scored in 1 league game this season and rarely looks like scoring, nothing on the bench to replace either of them

We were much bigger than them as a team and yet they looked more dangerous at set pieces.

Oh how the team is crying out for a Dom Thomas type player to get the fans going and put a quality ball in the box. Hopefully Mahon comes onto a game.

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

“Oh how the team is crying out for a Dom Thomas type player”

Mochrie - IMO he’s as good as Thomas. What we do need is another outlet, last year we were easy to play against, stop Thomas & the whole team struggled. We need a couple of the others to up there game.

I was wondering if the big difference between our League 1 winning team in 2016, and our current team, was that we had a Goalscorer - with a capital G - i.e. Faissal El Bakhtoui - 22 goals in the league.

I think one of our best performances was the 2-2 draw with Ross Cunty.

So on second thoughts all I want for Christmas is (our team, as they were that day:)

DUNFERMLINE: Sean Murdoch; Shaun Rooney, Brad McKay, Ben Richards-Everton, Jason Talbot; Michael Paton, Andy Geggan (c), Josh Falkingham, Joe Cardle; Michael Moffat, Faissal El Bakhtaoui.

OK it`s maybe not all that constructive to look back longingly, but it makes it clear to me now why we`re not playing with such confidence, and the level we need to work towards.

Totally agree on the striker subject , we are blessed with probably the three worst strikers i have seen at E.E.P for many along time , one is a non trier and the other two totally lack basic football skills

I agree with Berkey. Whilst not the finest footballer to grace EEP, we do miss O`Hara`s pace and willingness to put defenders under pressure.

Because of Todorov`s lack of pace, the option to slip balls in behind the back line was simply not on.

In the main, the centre backs were hardly ever asked to turn and run back - most of the play being in front of them

There are people who post on this forum who should really find something else to do every Saturday. DAFC is clearly not suitable for them

You could say we`re doing well considering the team we`ve got now - compared to the 2015-16 one - we`re nothing like as solid, have little creativity and are blunt as a black puddin`up front, yet we`re top of the league. We`re overperforming!🙂
