Sadly Locke & Jackson will not get sacked as the club cannot afford to do the deed.

But on the other hand can the club afford to see less & less fans coming through the turnstiles and the dreadful thought of relegation?


we will not be relegated tam. end of story Wink

at the moment we are not too good, but have confidence for gods sake. its no good being a supporter only to continually air the pessimistic view we are rubbish. currently we are but i have confidence that will change.

At the moment we are 6 wins away from the usual 43 point safety mark
so there's still plenty games left for now ........... theres too much individual quality in the team for us to be relegated if only Locke would pick the right formation

Exactly Armagh which was the point of my post on the falkirk match thread.

So would i, but who do i leave out. We have a very good and strong squad now. Also whichever subs you pick would normally be first choice for most other championship teams. Thats whats frustrating, we have it all but we aint using it correctly. As for me, i have and still support gary LOCKE but its time he showed me that support is worthy of it.

It beggars belief that some people could be calling for Locke's head. We could be third in the league after Saturday's match and although we probably won't be we will still be right bang in contention for a play off place. During Grant Murray's reign that is what everyone would always go on about "we should be at least competing for a top four finish."
Well guess what, we are. Aye it was a disappointing result on Monday. Aye the last dozen or so games haven't seen great attacking displays but c'mon. If two defeats in ten games is all it takes to get a Raith manager the sack then let's just call it quits now and we can find something else to do with our Saturday afternoons.
Now yes in those last ten games and in fact over the season there has been a good few draws but it's a tough competive division we are in. Take out Utd and Hibs and on paper at least there isn't all that much between the rest. Yet we are only potentially 90 minutes away from being the best of the rest but for some that's seemingly still not good enough.

Its only the usual out crowd who are calling for lockes head. most of us, you included are satisfied with our placing in the league, but would like to see different team selections and approaches to games. is that too much to ask.

We could be 3rd after Saturday not because of what we are doing (have done in the last 10) but despite what we have done. Yes it's a tight league but it's a poor one at times too and we at present are not a good side but we have carried some luck. 12 points from a possible 30 with 7 goals scored (not but until you consider 4 were in 1 game) isn't play off material.

Yes we may be 3rd after the next game but sadly for us we could just as easily find ourselves 3rd bottom after the next 2, unless there is some real improvement I fear the latter will be more likely.

Defensive performances and getting draws against the top two have been the best performances.

I'm trying not to sound negative but the way the team is being selected and set up (and obviously playing) is making optimism a hard goal to win.
