I hate on Todd quite a lot on here but what I will say this season although it's tedious to watch, I kind of have to give his coaching ability a bit more credit, if the rumours are true that he isn't getting his targets and it's Tam signing the players then he has somehow found a way to get the team winning, 5th in the league with this group of players is pretty decent. I think most frustrations come from the fact that even though we are 5th, a few non wallet damaging changes could have had us in with a real chance of winning something, and to whoever said some fans are still thinking we are the big fish like once in the BNL, nobody thinks that, but most know we could be a hell of a lot bigger and better than we are.

Considering we don't really have physical players up front (Dingle probably throws the most hits) That looks like a very small group of players.
Quick check and those forward lines are
6' 5'9" 6'1"
5'6" 5'11" 5'7"
5'7" 5'9" Brit
Not hard to see where part of our problem lies up front. I know size isn't everything but wow that is a seriously small group of forwards in a very physically demanding league.
Same as usual though, have some very good players and some average players (like most teams) but again falling down on the blend in recruiting a team, so whose the moron responsible for recruiting these guys? Todd or Tam? This isn't about money, 2 full time coaches and a spare import! It's about ability to recruit a balanced team that we fall down on, also 3 Brits getting paid for nothing when we could have that money going on a good Brit like Davies, and have a couple youngsters on the bench, all the changes needed at Fife don't require more money being put in, just requires a bit vision and sense, it's like they just stumble into signings.
He lost control of the puck after some nice stick handling through the Flyers zone early in the second and his stick went in late on Owen. A wee bit of pushing and shoving in the aftermath but can't remember who was involved. He took two for slashing and I think that was fair enough.
A flyers d man (could not see who) pushed him, Faryna turned round to face him and the flyers players parted like the waves, and one actually high tailed it away as fast as he could go. We are really really really lacking in toughness
It was Haines, then he kind of left it after Faryna turned round, if it gets close with the clan in the run in, Owen will get seriously hurt
There's not a player more important in the league to their team than Dingle is for us, tonight's the type of game he injects a spark of life into. Turon is garbage, he got turned inside out all night, was at fault for at least 1 goal, looks like he's fell asleep half the time, and if that's Tommy or Wando making those mistakes they sit for the night.
If anyone listens to the purple army pod, skip the recent 1 to about the 40 minute mark, couple of minutes on the way fifes run, echoes most things said on here, even other fans around the league can see where we fall down, Tam and Kirsty, and Todd, time to get it sorted!!
