    Where will the Pars finish this season?

    Isnt Burke 37 already? He visibly tired in the second half although admittedly he was excellent first half. Come the heavier grass pitches he wont be putting in displays like that.

    Confirmed on Cows that Leon Jones the ex Hearts youngster/ US College grad has signed. A left sided defender. I wonder if that means Lewis Martin hasnt regained fitness.

    Morton v Pars

    Well, the season proper kicks off in less than 7 hours and I am well looking forward to it. I have bought my PPV for Morton and looking ahead to next week I have even managed to reserve my usual seat in the NW. What side will PG field today? Will Mehmet or OFW be between the sticks-I think he will go with Mehmet . I assume he will start with 3 at the back but which 3-will Watson be fit or will Vytas or Breen pull on the top? Will Dorrans start - I think he will be on the bench. Will it be 4 in the middle , I have been really impressed by the way Dom Thomas has taken to his new role , his use of the ball has been really effective and he has been so much more involved in games. Does Cole start and where do you play Kennedy? Do we start with all three strikers or do we keep one in reserve? So many permutations, to think a few weeks ago we could only muster three players on the bench and one of them was OFW.

    An interesting thread. Living a long way from Dunfermline it was difficult to get a handle on what was really going on. Early 2013 ( I think perhaps January ) or possibly late 2012 , I was approached by a friend (fellow supporter) who told me the club was struggling to pay the power bill to keep the floodlights on- this was when I realised we were in really desperate straights. He and I ( along with a few others) wrote personal cheques to the power company to keep the lights on. A month or two later I was in a hospitality box ( it was the freezing midweek game against Falkirk which we lost) and I was asked by one of the club's staff if I would mind sharing the box with the Official Administrator who had just been appointed that day ( or day before). Well , that was surreal. I cant recall if the away game against Raith Rovers was the last game of the season but many felt that it could well be the finale for the Pars. I decided I didnt want to attend it I guess for two reasons ; I couldnt deal with it emotionally and I really didnt believe it would be the last. Writing this reminds me that I got a phone call from Gavin Masterton probably in the second half of 2012, he was simply phoning to thank me for some sponsorship ( cant recall what it was ) and he came over as very, very pleasant. That was my one and only dealing with him directly. I guess I almost went for the "share issue" , I already had ( still have) shares in DAFC Ltd but I prevaricated and eventually concluded that it would be throwing money away and that Administration would be a better option. Its been some journey and we owe an enormous debt of gratitude to current and previous ( post Admin ) Directors. I still have a copy of the BDO accounts and list of Creditors. If you study it you will see that some of the current (and previous ) Directors of PUCIC and DAFC Ltd took big losses ( five figures possibly six ?) on Adminstration YET STILL PUT THEIR HANDS IN THEIR POCKETS to fund the Administration and purchase by PUCIC. It would make a fantastic book , so many fans played some part in so many many ways and so much of it will be unknown and unseen.

    Hamill and Declan McDaid being mentioned in some places - wouldnt wish either.
  12. Club has advised ST holders to book a seat via the online ticket system. This is to allow social distancing and to gauge how many ST holders will attend therefore allowing some sale of “walk ups” Took a while to navigate ticket system but got there in the end.
