Welcome to Episode 88 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.
It’s hard to glean too much from the start of any new season, as teams struggle to find their feet, their chemistry, and their identities. Six games into the new Scottish League 2 campaign though and East Fife sit third, eight points back of early runaway leaders and six ahead of last placed Forfar. I think most East Fife fans would have bitten your hand of for that in July.
What can we learn from these last few weeks from a black and gold perspective? Well, they’re a young and inexperienced team, but one with a fighting spirit and an early knack for earning some crucial late points. Enough to be playoff contenders? Are there concerns there wasn’t more additions before the transfer window closed? Is the positional bunching up going to be the story of the season from 2nd to 10th?
Michael, Lee, Doug, and Gordon delve into the main talking points coming out of it of the last few matches and look at the lie of the land down Bayview way and around the division in this early going.
