  1. I'm actually a little worried this is true! The "work in progress" should have surely been ongoing as soon as the BoD realised they didn't want Hughes next season, which I'd imagine was a few weeks before the end of the season. So, what, a month of trying to find somebody? Maybe their heads have been turned by Daren Dods since he got Brechin promoted and they're trying to work something out there?
  2. For part of the season we were housing smaller away supports in the corner of the Main Stand If the away fans were to be put in the Main Stand next season (or not have segregation) what would the chances be of making the away end (Key-Tech Stand) of the Railway Stand a home stand (or un-segragated), and have the North Stand closed most of the time? I'd far prefer to sit there, closer to the half way line, than in the South Stand or Main Stand.
  3. Ian Murray is currently assistant manager to Kevin Nicol at Asker in Norway. They're currently second bottom of the second tier after five matches. (Drawn 3, Lost 2).
  4. Staying FT but no news on players yet.
  5. I agree with this ^^ Alan Young made the comment that ideally the new manager would be here for a number of years (4 or 5?) before moving on. Is this realistic? Let's assume it's Darren Young: best case scenario is that we come straight back up and then, the season after, stay up (or reach mid-table, or even the play-offs). He's likely going to be off at the first chance of a job at a bigger club. (E.g. when McKinnon gets punted from Dundee United if they get stuck in the Championship for a few more seasons or St Johnstone when Tommy Wright moves on in a few years). We need somebody working for the club with a strategic vision who can carry it through no matter who the football manager is.
  6. He did say "as far as they understood, within the club, they couldn't recall him". As our CEO is the one who would probably do any recall, and is on the SPFL board, then they don't have much option other than to believe him - even if he's wrong!
  7. I understood that more as "I'll consider my position [and quit when I want. I've already considered it] but now isn't the time". Re. the interview: agreed - I thought he did well. Would liked him to have pushed more on the CEO's part in all the decisions. I thought the Chairman's comments were a bit strange re. "footballing people". He said they'll consult different footballing people as it's a different person we're interested in. Does that mean they just asked Gary Locke's mates if he was any good and they all said "yes". Sounds like he plans on having Vaughan around next season, (although guess won't stand in his way if he wants to leave...). Good that we're planning on keeping the Development Squad ring-fenced. But again, strange comments re. down to the new managed whether or not he wants to utilise them. Also sounds like they'll maybe close the North Stand. Guess don't need segregation for any game other than East Fife!
  8. Just watched the highlights. M'Voto's disallowed goal was probably correct, although for McManus fouling the keeper rather than Jock. Still can't quite see Skacel's. At the match I thought Brechin's pen was soft but decided I must have been wrong as was far away and people on here saying it was a stone-waller. Looks a dive to me. And how this isn't a penalty I don't know.
  9. Got to disagree about Craig Barr being brutal, thought he was pretty solid. Davo was brutal. Also thought Skacel wasn't as terrible as made out - he did more than Hardie did when he replaced him. M'Voto's goal being chalked off was harsh - keeper flapped at it and missed. Ref never blew until the ball was in the net. He also let any amount of holding/shoving/shirt-pulling go in the rest of the park. Couldn't tell about the offside disallowed goal due to my angle. One of the highlights of the match was when Beni pinged one of the Brechin players in the face.
  10. I went along to watch Brechin v Alloa in March (1-2). If we can't beat Brechin over two legs I'd be surprised; they were pretty bad. If we manage to get to a final (v Alloa) then I think it'd be a case of which Raith team turns up as to how we do.
  11. Poor Perth! "If elected, I would use my problem solving skills and many years of negotiating experience to support and assist constituents and community groups."
  12. Yeah, until the BoD hand them over to Rangers for nothing.
  13. Yes, but I'd imagine only in conjunction with automated gates (or the staff having barcode readers). What clubs have automatic barcode reading gates? Only one I've been to is Hibs, I think.
  14. I'd assume so. The playoff match there last season was ticketed but they were also selling tickets from the portakabin outside the stand before kickoff.
  15. 2017/2018 Season Tickets £230 until 28th April, then £250 (not sure for how long), then £295. Seems good pricing, for the Super Early Bird at least.
