Not sure how this thread evolved into this but hereís my 2d worth.
No team is running away with this league, at least not yet, so to say we are out of the running for winning it is not only typically pessimistic but a trifle premature.

This league has been there for the winning and still is, not having grasped the opportunity might well prove to be our downfall, the last time we were in this position (with the Pars) the following season we were expecting more of the same and it didnít happen, then we lost McGlynn and didnít challenge for the title again until now.
Perhaps there is a strong case for respecting history and not making the same choices going forward.

I too think the current side would toil horribly in the SPL but to not take the opportunity would be worse, if you donít want to play against the best whatís the point?

Hopefully the plan is to free up some money to sign a forward. I can't believe we extended his contract in October as it was clear then he had little to offer. Another experiment that didn't work.


A club like ours is going to have a lot of those experiments, probably more so if we go up to the SPL. Part and parcel of this level of football with such a small talent pool to pick from.


You have a point but it is those sort of signings and having a blind spot for certain players that gives us no chance of promotion. Full marks for optimism though.


Full marks for pessimism, SR!

Our rivals for promotion are all spending and bringing in, on the face of it, significant reinforcements. Killie now linked with Scott Allan and Inverness are signing some guy from Wolves on an 18 month deal.
Do we roll the dice and spend the money on doing likewise and hope the gamble comes in? It's true we might not be in the is postioncagainvforna while.
At least three out of the five teams vying for promotion are going to be disappointed. Presumably they will be in a poorer position next season if they spend now and don't end up going up. We'll certainly be poorer off if we strengthen now in the short term but are then struggling with the finances to properly replace those who will be leaving us in the summer. Do we keep our powder dry so we are in good footing for next term?
I don't know what the right course of action is and who says there is one? I trust those in charge to make the right decisions for the right reasons. Half of everything is luck anyway.

On the subject of BRS his finest performance for us was actually in our best performance of the season when we beat Aberdeen at Starks.

So he didn't score with a header at Somerset in the 2-0 win? Confused
