  1. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    It’s really not as simple as saying that we should have went part-time. Dumbarton are offering the perfect part-time package, a playing contract, and a job with their main sponsor, something we couldn’t hope to do. We’d almost certainly be worse if we’d went part-time.

    I was under the impression Nathan Flanagan had been pretty underwhelming for East Fife last season. He looked looked reasonably decent in Annan’s highlights the season before right enough, albeit a league below.
  3. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I think that’s a different case, in that it involves a footballer with an education in another field who was already looking into the PT game. In terms of what we’re offering wage wise compared to the part-time teams, I’d imagine it’s more. Not necessarily significantly, but a club with 1500 fans is surely offering more than a club with around 1000?

    I’m quite looking forward to seeing the reaction when we sign no-one from that quartet, and announce Alex Harris.
  5. The East Fife Thread

    I liked him, but ultimately he probably only had two good games for us, one against Hibs, and one against Ayr. He didn’t get too much of a look in at us last season, which probably elevated his ability to a degree. He’s robust, works hard and sails close to the wind in terms of physicality at times, but to date, and this might change with yourselves, he’s done nothing to suggest he can score goals. Hopefully it works out for him though.
  6. The East Fife Thread

    According to Transfermarkt, Court has played 1547 minutes for Raith Rovers, East Stirling and Montrose and scored four goals.
  7. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    That’s right! The ideal place to play two forwards when you’re moving five up top. Weird he was such a failure.
  8. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Can anyone remember what formation we ended up playing in Gary Locke’s final 15 minutes in charge? I’m sure it featured a very unusual player in defence and about six up front? It was wild.
  9. Don’t get me started on that one...
  10. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    My goodness, this is absolutely sensational! Over nine minutes of solid gold Martin Hugo Prest, featuring about six minutes of him missing, and with a pumping dance track to boot. The keepie-uppies in a back garden whilst wearing an oversized Raith Rovers shell-suit is also a highlight. My goosebumps have goosebumps. Thank-you JinglinGeordie.
  11. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    For the fourteenth summer in a row, I’m crossing my fingers that we’re bringing back Martin Hugo Prest.

    Apologies in advance if I’m being wooshed here, but there was about 15 years between this interview and Williams death. Hadn’t actually seen that before though, what an orator Jimmy Reid was. He was some boi. Back to Rovers though, (if we must) and what a great decision to play our games at Methil, a venue we always win at. I’m already looking forward to topping the group.
  13. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Was the send off for Daly not more to do with the fact he was retiring, rather than leaving Rovers though? I agree I’d like to have presentations like that for fan favourites, but I suppose it was a slightly different scenario.
  14. The Arbroath Thread

    That's a really good point about Grant Anderson offering Thomson protection down the years. As much as I do think that Thomson's injuries have set him back a notch or two, it may also be that he's been less inclined to get forward as he's had less faith in the guy in front of him since Anderson left. On paper it looks like a really good signing, but it'll be interesting to see how he gets on next year if you persist with three centre-halves and are relying on him to give you width.
  15. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Think he scored the equaliser that day before Grant Anderson got the winner and you’re right. Everything before and after was curiously guff though.
