  1. Raith Rovers v Arbroath (24/02/18)

    Looking at our remaining fixtures our away games are very tough (Airdrie, Ayr, Stranraer, Arbroath, Forfar). Unfortunately there is nothing to suggest that we are going to stop dropping points away from home, so this puts added pressure on the home games. I have a feeling that out of our remaining five home games we need maximum points. Arbroath (other than Ayr and Airdrie) have been far and away the best of the rest to have played at Starks, have a lot of goals in the team and are in good form. Tough game and one where we could do with everything falling into place (they have an off day, we have a good one, early goal etc.). Fingers are crossed. Confident based on the home record. Shite'ing it based on the fact its the Rovers and its football.
  2. Albion Rovers V Raith Rovers

    I think I will go for the St Andrews bar, cheers folks for all the info. (ETA: any pub that is pernickety about football colours of non-old firm can get itself to f**k!). Rational side of me ha got a deal of confidence. Less Rational side is shiteing it. Only two of our usual 5 are able to make it today - any other folks getting the sense that it will be a decent/poor crowd today? Think a big number behind that goal could make a bit of a difference.

    Does anyone know the best pre-game pubs? We went to Owen's last time and it was ok, although not a classic football pub. Are there any others people would recommend? Are there any classic home/away pubs in town? Cheers!
  4. Probably been mentioned but last season Gary Locke (any club appointing him is Tin Pot in itself) not playing our best player (Lewis Vaughan), loaning our best player to a relegation rival (Dumbarton), him scoring a fair few and then us ultimately getting relegated. Probably one of the most incompetent decisions of all time. Its so ridiculous it feels like its a made up story.
  5. Not only a magic moment of photographic history, but a moment that brought us two now famous Scottish football catchphrases: 'Surely, unthinkable for the skipper to miss?' 'They will be dancing in the streets of Raith tonight...'
  6. Albion Rovers V Raith Rovers

    f**k sake. Initially I thought you were just making a deep point about the inability to remove Rovers-centric demons! Going to leave it as is. If those demons can't be 'lifted' I will put them through their paces on Saturday.
  7. Albion Rovers V Raith Rovers

    Hoping for a produtive week so I don't have to work this weekend and can get to the game. It's a nice short trip for me, so would be good to take advantage. I also feel like it would be good to go and (hopefully) see us get a better result than the first abonination of a result/performance - excercise those demons. If I do go it better be fucking dry!
  8. Ayr United - 17-18 rumblings and mumblings

    If that is just locals from alloa then that is as you say, shite baggery. But that to me sounds as if ex-pats who now live in alloa are taking pride in their travelling to games still to support their local team (dundee united, I mean). A bit like if I had a 'Glasgow Rovers' flag. The difference with these **** is they are genuine locals who are born and bread in every where but Glasgow, probably wouldn't know how to get to ibrox if you dumped them on Buchanan Street and seem to be taking pride in deliberately not following their local team!
  9. Ayr United vs Sevco

    Pitch inspection planned?
  10. Albion Rovers V Raith Rovers

    Looking at the stats it looks like Albion Rovers have only won two home games all season. Hopefully we avoid gifting a goal head start this time! we played well at hampden but this is am entirely different type of away game all together. We need to be ready for a battle on that park and playing intricate football will be difficult. With that in mind I would start with the team that finished. Robbo and Herron in midfield and Vaughan off Big Willis up top to win headers, bully defenders and run channels.
  11. Raith Rovers v Airdrie

    Delighted with that. Herron was class today again. As was big Willie Style. Very pleased Vaughan got a goal, hopefully he goes on a little run. Once Robbo came on we looked good going forward. it will be interesting to see what team he starts with next week.
  12. Raith Rovers v Airdrie

    As a cautious manager I would be very surprised if its anything other than the same team that started last night. That starting XI leaves us lot's of changes (defensive or attacking) too, so I would be happy to see it remain the same. I had a look at Airdrie's last few league fixtures and after beating Ayr its been 3 draws 1 win and 1 defeat. I am another that is slightly surprised by their patchy form. Especially in the game at their place they looked a decent side. Is it just the inconsistency of youth? Do Airdrie fans expect/think there will be performance on Saturday? The home form of 10 wins and 1 draw has me hopeful - I think it will be tight but we will just nick it... hopefully...

    One of the finest arse's in pair of shorts I've seen at Starks park. A real shame but not a huge surprise - hopefully keeps doing good work for us as a coach.
  14. Rovers v Rovers

    Brilliant result. Finally took real advantage. Another huge opportunity again on Saturday to keep this home form going. Herron adding to his excellent performance last Saturday with two classic third man runner midfield goals. If he has been carrying a knock and this is the real John Herron we are seeing then he may be a vital player in the run in. Big Willie Style - what a signing. Brings so much to our attack. Robbo back fit as well is excellent. Bene back and we have a full squad (mchattie doesn't count and Murray has been great of late). JT the goal machine back in gear - captain leader legend! All in all a good nights work. On to Saturday!
