Indeed Biggles.
I'd forgotten when purring up PARrot about German supermarkets that Halbeath Road has more than its fair share of bungalows and semi detached houses.
A desirable part of the town (I don't subscribe to the city nonsense) in which East End Park could be a desirable private housing estate with Leishman Lane, Pars Place, Stein Street or McCathie Mews among the choice of street names. There is also the option of Administration Avenue!😉


I think Debtors Drive, Cheats Close, Swindlers Street and my own favourite Penny in the pound Place are more apt. Very Happy

Much, much more apt, indeed!

Just for the record, big Jim has two streets named after him already.

Leishman Drive and running parallel with it, Halkett Crescent.

Prime, not so sure. An Aldi on one side and a dealers forecourt on the other doesn’t make the best of neighbors.

Totally useless information coming in ....there's also a Leishman Drive in Wick.
Also curiously named after a James Leishman who was also a Fifer.
He came from one of the Wemyss but can't remember which one. I've a feeling it was East Wemyss as he was a friend of Jimmy Shand.
James Leishman was the head of art in Wick High in the 1950's, 1960's and early 70's and was a Provost of Wick in the 60's, that being the reason he had a street named after him in a new council housing scheme of the 1960's.
Auld Leishman was a kindly soul but a spade was a blood y JCB with him. You certainly knew where you stood wi' him.
Telt ye it was useless information!🥴

I don't envy them. These guys are business men, and did not grow up watching the Pars. Brings back memories of Danny Smith and Co.

For all our worries, I'm just glad that we have now Rovers fans in the boardroom!

Gavin Masterton, for all his business failings, was a Dunfermline fan. In the early 90s we had Rovers fans in the boardroom and it still took another Rovers fan to, Alex Penman, to come along and bail us out.
I'd love it if someone could come along and invest in us like the Pars are getting but I'd love it just as much if the Pars investment turns sour.

He was very adept at conning the BoS out of more than £10M with no means to repay such amount. I would call that a success in the same way that Yankee gentlemen sold potions from a carpetbag.

Indeed and his actions certainly benefited Pars and their supporters I suppose. Didn't benefit scores of local business, the council (who have to pay for so many of our essential workers) and the British Red Cross who all lost either a few hundred pounds or tens of thousands of pounds. Still it was the only way they could play with the big boys. Which funnily enough is the same sort of thing their chairman is saying now about this new investment.

Exactly this and something folk seem to forget which further down the line many local businesses and charity suffered

For those who want to know what is behind the new investment group.

They don't seem like a demolition crew. Lots of questions answered.

I doubt this lot would have even sniffed the Pars under the Masterton regime. This is a good indication of how the new board have worked to restore the good name of the Pars.

You will always have the Masterton years ammo to fire shots I suppose, and that is fair enough. We accept it, it is largely deserved.

You cannot deny that the ship has been turned now and we steered through some very stormy waters and navigated through some rocky shallows to get to a place where respectable businessmen put their trust in us.

Watch the interview with the new investors.

Does it explain why a German outfit are actually investing in a Scottish football club?, not just the Pars for that matter but any Scottish club. After all there must be lots of lower league German clubs that they could have invested in (as Red Bull did) or indeed other European (EU) nations sides.

AFC Fussball GmbH’s Damir Keretic commented “We have spent over two years looking at potential clubs all over Europe, and a key factor was that the club´s “DNA”, values and “way of doing things” had to be compatible with our own approach. At DAFC we found a club with a long tradition and heritage, run by a professional Board of Directors located in a community firmly standing behind its local club. Quite simply, DAFC fitted our aims much better than any other club to whom we had spoken. We are now delighted to be working with DAFC, as we look to integrate our combined strategy of future and sustainable success for the club.

Our original investment, to acquire 75.1% of the DAFC share capital, was scheduled to complete in late March, but the unprecedented situation created by the Coronavirus pandemic inevitably put things on hold which, at the time, was extremely frustrating for both parties. We were further impressed by how the Club successfully navigated itself through this period, and it demonstrated to us both the robust management and controls in place and also the strength of community and passion that surrounds DAFC as a football club.

Germany and Austria have the 50+1 rule that made a takeover impossible.
This is what most Pars fans are worried about after Masterton but they seem to be genuine. Let's hope!
