    Naysmith gone ....

    The Club have this evening parted company with Manager Gary Naysmith.

    The Board would like to thank Gary for his efforts during his time at Palmerston.  Unfortunately we are in a results business and our recent results haven't been good enough.

    We wish Gary all the best for the future.

    Well done the BOD.

    Definitely the correct decision. Some might question the timing but he failed to get the players motivated for today's game, something which we can't risk repeating for the relegation play offs.

    He looked like his time was up the way he went down the tunnel at full time

    For the Directors Manager and Captain to rally the supporters and then to start Low ahead of Wilson was diabolical

    Four games to save our club from being relegated - what a mess this Centenary Season has turned out to be.

    Apparently the players were very upset at Naysmith's sacking. That's commendable and loyal but they might want to take a look in the mirror and remember that our club pays their wages. Utterly gutless performance today. They need to come out all guns blazing in what will be tough play off games.

    Naysmith brutally honest in his last post match interview but ultimately the buck stops with him as he said himself.

    Everybody around me could not understand why Wilson was not on from the start, shocking decision from Naysmith and we all love him, but Sir Stephen was not match fit.
    Also we have three goalkeepers but are any of them good enough?

    Just his usual sound bites. We weren't good enough today, we need to improve, we spoke about this in training blah blah blah

    What I found amusing was his mention of he's going to have to freshen it up. FFS he just freshened it up from freshening it up the last game!
    That's been his downfall. He felt the need for surgery every time we had a defeat

    I really like the honesty of Naysmith's interviews. He clearly really cares about how we do but the results just aren't good enough.
    I have to say unless the players can show a level of ability and passion that has been sadly lacking today then I fear for us in the play offs.
    We need to get behind the team now though. We all have a part to play in how this evolves. Crucial games coming up.

    Playing Low instead of the strong midfielder Wilson was just not good enough Spike . In a game of such importance we needed Wilson's physicality and he was wasted on the bench Dobbie could barely move but was played infront of fit players. We are not done yet but its last orders at the bar.

    I agree 100% JR as that team selection seemed one of complete desperation picking unfit players over fit and enthusiastic youngsters. He has paid the ultimate price but now we need someone to get these players to give their all in the playoffs.

    I reckon Dobbie and Low will struggle big time to be involved in four games over the next fortnight, if Queens get that far...

    Letíís be totally honest, we have no chance in the playoffs without a fit Dobbie, the rest of the team couldnie score in a brothel

    aj and sandy have been flops everywhere theve been apart from with us wen they came into a team full of young promising players in a league full of duds we need to bring in a manager with a track record of doing well in tranfer markets cause even if we get relegated we will be up against a falkirk team who have said they will be building a squad to get them into the premier league not just back to the championship and with mr hewitson in charge we all know he wont give the new manager a budget to fight with and if we stay up its a massive rebuild needed with only a handfull of our current squad deserving of a new contract
