  1. Scottish Cup 2017/18

    I'm going to speculate wildly here, and suggest they're not discussing this in Asunción, Riga or Rabat.
  2. I was shaking my head at Iain Davidson's goading of the Arbroath fans at half-time, but now I've seen how much it bothered some of them, I'm delighted he indulged in it.
  3. Slovenia Vs Scotland - Official Match Thread

    He lost his man for the equaliser, and bungled a great chance over the bar at 1-1. He's been extremely average for Scotland.
  4. Is the boy who sits on the far right of the main stand that angry every week? And if so, how do the folk around him put up with it? He was a slavering, sweary, attention seeking mess for the whole game. I thought his Maris Piper-like head was going to explode when it went to 3-1.
  5. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    They've probably told us the new board members at a recent half time interval, but we've not made it out due to the microphone giving off static every 3 seconds.
  6. The wee Rovers v Big Rovers

    Good idea, then we could have Jason Thomson as the only fit wide player in our squad. That should help matters.
  7. The wee Rovers v Big Rovers

    Bobby Barr's swear words aside, that was a dreadful performance from us. As much as Graeme Smith was an absolute disaster zone at the first, the second was also poor. The finish was excellent, and Connor Shields looks quite the prospect, but the Rovers midfield gave room to everyone involved in the move from start to finish. As a general rule of thumb, we probably had three players that are too good for this level based on this season's performances. Ross Callachan, Kyle Benedictus and Lewis Vaughan, and only one is now available. I'd be be pleasantly surprised if Saturday's XI could win this division, but I'm not so sure. The midfield was a complete non-event. Fingers crossed we play our first choice eleven next week so we can register some more injuries.
  8. The wee Rovers v Big Rovers

    I can't believe it misses Smith's disastrous stepover/riverdance move. I'm crestfallen.
  9. The wee Rovers v Big Rovers

    Graeme Smith has been an absolute bombscare for us since coming in, but that mistake today was something else. I just burst out laughing as soon as it rolled in. What an absolute neep.
  10. The wee Rovers v Big Rovers

    Scott Robertson pulled up pretty early against Airdrie, but he seemed to shrug it off after a few minutes. That, plus his general track record, means I wouldn't be too surprised if he was one.
  11. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    So just so I'm straight here, and I'm still trying to figure out if you're Danny Dyer judging by your use of the term, 'geezers', you honestly think we're currently being run by the worst football people, not just in Scotland, but the world?
  12. I'm not sure we have a history of doing it, although we did do it to a degree in the first season I started going. I think we were the last undefeated team in Britain after 15 games, and Grandstand put together a wee feature on us. I remember they interviewed Andy Leigh, and my first thought was that literally no-one from outside Fife would understand what he was saying. Anyway, after the grand build-up, we lost 3-2 to Meadowbank, a fact I completely blamed on Dickie Davies and his stupid Grandstand program. Even though it was the fag end of November, it was the first time I'd seen us lose a match. I moaned for about 2 hours, but thankfully I'm far more sanguine about defeats these days, and generally keep moaning down to around the 90 minute mark.
  13. Let Down XI

    He had seven caps for Congo, apparently. I didn't think he played for our first team at all, but I could be wrong as I couldn't get to every game back then, which was clearly a blessing.
  14. Dundee United 2017/2018

    So two clubs got relegated shortly after he left, and two clubs got relegated whilst he was in charge. There is a pattern emerging here.
  15. Dundee United 2017/2018

    Hibernian, Hartlepool, Raith Rovers and arguably Falkirk. With the exception of Inverness and maybe Livingston, very few fans of his former clubs would want him back. That can't be a coincidence.
