  1. Dundee United 2018/2019

    As long as we don't swap managers I'll take it.
  2. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Flood has pitched up at East End. Not sure how much he'll play but he isn't joining your lot.
  3. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Don't think he'll play much but still looked to be the best passer in the United team last season - in the play off game at East End everything was going through him - and he'll probably be a better option than Wedderburn if we need someone to come on with 10 minutes to play and keep the ball without losing a lead. Still a few positions we're weak in though.

    I'm mostly agreeing with you! If there have to be midweek fixtures then I'd suggest making sure the longest distances aren't scheduled then but everything else is fair game. A few years back we had 2 Stranraer v Peterhead games midweek - one of them was scheduled I think, the other was shifted due for the Challenge Cup - that could have been avoided.
  5. Fixtures 2018/19

    To be fair, I think the question of why are there midweek games (especially when there are available dates during the festive period) and at that time of year (when games are more at risk) is probably fair enough. Everyone does have to go up/down to the outlying areas though and as long as the longest possible journeys (Queens v County at either venue) are kept to weekends if possible then that isn't a legitimate complaint.

    Tried it, couldn't get into it.
  7. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Aren't emergency loans not happening from this season on? I'm sure there may still be a mechanism for getting goalkeepers in on a "genuine emergency" basis but I don't know the wording of the new transfer regs.
  8. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Aiden Connelly any good? Rumoured to be heading to East End and I know a few of you were hopeful you might get him back.
  9. Punditwatch 2018

    Phil seemed to be on the right lines with his "It wasn't a clear and obvious error by the referee so the VAR panel shouldn't have made him review it" but then he ended up tying himself in knots trying to explain himself and ended up contradicting his earlier statement and mumbling that he wasn't a fan of VAR in general. Drogba seemed perplexed by his comments but he wasn't alone...
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    The £17k is the minimum prize money from the BetFred Cup - it's not the prize money given to the Lowland League winners just for winning their league.
  11. Fixtures 2018/19

    Well that's one way of putting it. Or you could say that for as long as I've been watching football you have either the first or the last game at home. And that there are 2 random midweek fixtures when Boxing Day and New Year's Day has no games taking place. The Premiership fixtures have all been messed about with too it looks like. Teams who were away to Rangers 2 times pre split doing so again this year when that wasn't meant to happen.
  12. Fixtures 2018/19

    Shite. Away first AND last. And no Boxing Day or New Year game. Inverness and Ross County away in the same quarter (and Queen of the South). Inverness away on a Tuesday night for some reason. Shite. At least the first game should be tasty. https://spfl.co.uk/championship/fixtures/
  13. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    7, 7, 5, 6 then a 5. Did them in reverse order so started off poorly but got a little better. They need to stop asking questions about "tourist destinations" that only Australian backpackers go to, and the Lake one was just ridiculous - at least make it so if you know 2 or 3 of the countries you don't still only have a 50/50 choice!
  14. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Was Loy on that big a wage? If he's heading to the Rovers, that's going to be a massive drop in wages if he was one of your higher earners.
