    Could be third. Fingers crossed there's productive bonding and they come back to fight like feck, and not amongst themselves cos someone has stolen another's lumber at the dancin......

    Conflicting accounts from many sources as to the weird involvement. Very confusing, I don't know who's in charge of our club and to whom my money is going

    And maybe not. Someone has obviously decided it's a good tactic, well see soon enough. I've tried such reward tactics with the kids in the past, they take the reward and then take the p1ss. Who's the mug?

    And why not. Let's try ANYTHING to help the players to make sure we don't suffer another relegation. Just wish it was me. Great time of the year to get away to some warmth. It's all about bonding, developing relationships, engendering a willingness to help each other, fight for each other.... ..

    Simple question, simple answer is none. Not since the sellik "sack the board" campaign has fan power removed a board. Even then the machinations behind the scenes did it, and I'm sure the new guys were glad of the fans backing. Most boards are autocratic, nature of the beast. I'd get rid of them all and start again but it's not going to happen

    That's also a great point sb1876, the board will need to decide if his tenure this season is acceptable and if they have confidence in his remaining in post, whether we stay up or go down again. I'm glad I don't need to decide cos my opinion on Caldwell changes sometimes by the day, never mind by the game
  9. I was waiting to see what 5 lifes sandy was going for, but now that tactic seems so so wrong. I shall use my last life wisely........naaaa foolishly wins again, 1-0 to the real Theeesul please. Ta auld jag

    Yep. First para is correct, I think it might have been auld jag or barney, well, "someone" on here mentioned that what would we expect Caldwell to do in his interview? (This is 1971's point in his post too). Other than his best, bum up the players, guild the lilly about how he could make things better. He's not going to go into his interview and say "the current players are sh1te and I can't make them better, you need to give me money and wait until I get players in". No chance. Like any interviewee you promise the world and tell the interviewer how good you are and how much better you will make their company. My point was simply to agree with several posters points and suggest we drop the subject for now and move on, probably re visiting it at the end of the season?

    Yeah, especially if we are as poor as we were the last time we were in that league. Though when we started to play our crowds were bigger than some esspeell matches. Wining coupled with good football brings big crowds back.

    Great point and this post should draw a line in the interview debate. We've surely done it to death.

    Yeah, that's a big issue that will need to be addressed. Agree he's not achieved what the board said he was being employed to do and even though we are seeing some improvement I just don't see him taking us up but suspect the board will stay with him. There was some talk a few weeks back possibly yourself and barney? about crowds being down which could be argued suggested we the fans weren't buying in to what he was doing. That was true up until last month and I might be wrong but there seems to have been a good home crowd the last few home games and our turn out v Falkirk on Saturday was huge, so some must be buying in to what he's doing or are we all just showing blind loyalty to our club. Ive fair enjoyed the atmosphere at the last couple of away games and the fans in the main seem optimistic.

    More of a wannabe wind game I'd suggest. Generally speaking all games are must wins no matter what your position is in the league, how many games are still to be played. I felt before that an away game against our nearest rivals for relegation was, if anything, a must not lose game? Can we not get bogged down with semantics and agree we need to try and win more games than Falkirk and alloa between now and the end is the season. I'd rather win a 'must win' game with other games to come than be going to QoS last game and a real "must win" game.

    There has definitely been overall improvement between his appointment and now. Quite a few ups and downs during that period and several false Dawn's? But you can't argue that several recent performances have been an improvement. In December we would have lost that game on Saturday. All that said, I don't see our present manager as the answer to all our ails, I've no idea who would improve our lot As has been said by many on this forum, Caldwell was brought in with a bit of a fanfare by jlow that he was the man to take us to promotion.........did she say what season promotion was to be achieved #justsayin Saturday was a good game, was there for the winning, I just think the tactic in the first half was get at them, score a goal and keep them out. In the end, for the last 10 minutes I was screaming for a winner then they would attack and I was screaming for the whistle and grateful for a draw.
