  1. Don’t get me started on East Fife fans and exclamation marks.
  2. I make that seven wins in our last 35 away games, two of which were against Highland League opposition.
  3. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    His goal against Rangers is one of my favourite moments in 30 plus years of watching Rovers. I was surrounded by 1200 or so in the main stand who were all going daft about the penalty save, another few hundred had made their way down the Val McDermid stand, ready to invade the park, and then he did that. BWAHAHAHAHA
  4. Bobby Williamson was an utter, utter midden in that Kilmarnock team, and outclassing them to that title in the early nineties was a real giggle. Being significantly inferior to them for the next 25 years took the edge off, right enough.
  5. Raith Rovers vs. Alloa Athletic

    I thought it was a bit odd when Zanatta sent in the cross for the first goal, then turned round and started pointing to the Rovers badge. Regardless, a good win all in.

    I couldn’t stop laughing at that.

    Cheers for the replies folks, really appreciate them.

    Lads, out of interest, what’s been the biggest factor in Montrose’s turnaround over the last season or two? Is it all down to Stewart Petrie management skills, or has their been a reasonable increase in budget been made available to him to strengthen the squad? The switch from perennial jobbers to promotion contenders is pretty startling.
  9. CLYDE FC Season 2017-18 Thread

    I’d be gobsmacked if the Clyde fans on here were still defending him if he played for some other bottom-of-the-table jobbers rather than The Bully Wee. Could be wrong though.
  10. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Eventually got round to watching the goals we conceded on Saturday, and my goodness, what a horror show. I’d like to think it may be something of a wake-up call, but I also said that after losing to Albion Rovers, and a few folk said it after the Ayr debacle, so I’m not so sure. I’m certainly not buying this, ‘don’t become a bad team overnight’ shtick that is starting to come from inside the club though, as being poor-to dreadful between September to November isn’t an overnight process.

    I do think there’s a danger that the quality of the Development players can be overstated. When teams aren’t playing well, the guys who aren’t getting a game seem to become better by default in the minds of fans, when the reality is sometimes different. What I’d say about our development team, is that a few of them have demonstrated in fits and starts that they might be able to handle themselves at this level, but I wouldn’t go any further than that at the moment. Yes they won the league, and they should be commended for it, but it doesn’t mean they’re suddenly able to play in League One. Take the Ross County youth side we played for example. They were the winners of the Elite League last season, and they were absolutely pitiful at Stark’s Park. In fact, if we hadn’t eased off, I genuinely think we could have scored double figures. The standard at that level really isn’t good at all. I do think Court is an interesting one though, and he seems to get less chances than Osei and obviously the more senior guys. I’d like to see him get more opportunities, but has anyone actually seen him in the under-20’s this season? I haven’t, but off the top of my head, I’m not sure he’s scored *too* many, so if he isn’t impressing there, (and I’ve no idea if he is or not) then I can understand Barry Smith wanting to use Osei and even Jack Smith who came on at Coatbridge before him. In fact, it would be weird if he didn’t do that if they’re impressing more. Where I do think we could have been cleverer, and a lot of people said it at the time, is that in the cups, and league games where we had big leads, we should have been giving the younger guys half an hour or whatever, rather than the five minutes or so they ended up getting, if indeed they got anything at all. It would have done them the world of good, as well as potentially reducing the injuries we have now. Based on the last five or six weeks though, I’m now far, far less confident of winning the league than I was back in August.
  12. Super Ayr vs Lewis Vaughan

    He got a serious injury at the start of September last season, and didn’t come back until the end of December.
  13. Super Ayr vs Lewis Vaughan

    Mind someone said a couple of weeks ago in here that our away form was nothing to worry about and he didn’t understand why some of us were concerned? No worries M8.
  14. Super Ayr vs Lewis Vaughan

    Never mind, we’ve a great record in playoff matches.
  15. Super Ayr vs Lewis Vaughan

    Can I amend my two or three to four or five please?
