Welcome to Episode 50 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast.
It’s our golden anniversary episode and we have a brand new season to preview in it. Wonderful! Or is it?
Just what East Fife are we going to get this season? Preseason saw a lack of any real test, when that came in the League Cup group games, things have not gone well. No wins, no points, only two goals scored, two defeats to teams in a lower league, and a goal difference of minus seven. Optimism is hard to find right now if we’re being brutally honest.
Lee, Michael, Doug, and Gordon look at the close season comings and goings, the extension of manager Darren Young, the disappointing League Cup performances, the lack of real difference makers in the team, and their hopes and fears for the season ahead.
Is there any money to strengthen the squad? How many starters are we needing to bring in to compete? Why has Player of the Year Ryan Wallace seemingly quit the club? Are there loan deals on the horizon? Have we been left behind by the rest of the division? Are there any positives we can take right now? So many questions!!!
There’s lot of football chat, plus we bring you the latest single from East Fife fan, and friend of the show, PG Ciarletta.
