  1. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I didn't know Nesbit had a longing to play as a wing back.

    Disappointing that such a howler made it into The Courier, which is usually excellent for football. No qualms with that list - more or less as expected. I personally wouldn't be looking at Cuthbert or Clark, however. The latter is a complete weapon, if I remember rightly.

    Sean Kilgannon is one of the worst players I've ever seen at any level. Incredibly, he has also made an appearance in the English Premiership.
  4. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Agreed. Disrespectful to a former Kilmarnock manager and indeed their current one to spell his surname incorrectly.
  5. As we've seen the past couple of weeks, Brechin only start scoring once behind. The ref was simply doing Brechin a favour awarding that penalty tbh.

    Yesterday's result wasn't a bad one, but it's the lineup that causes me concern. Yes the system was unfamiliar, but there is no excuse for players being made to play out of position when we aren't in the grips of an injury crisis. All for the manager making changes if he believes it is best, but the formation has to suit the players that are available for selection. If the players are not available, change it to something else. This is something Barry Smith was guilty of and I fear Cuthbert may fall into a similar trap.
  7. Another manager who hates width in the team. How novel.
  8. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Unless Smith is considering taking some form of action against us, why are we bothering to discuss with him? He's gone. Pay him up to his last day with us and be done with it.

    Not only did I miss the glory years, but also managed to go through the subsequent years oblivious that mob rule was alive and well at Starks, forcing out players. The innocence of childhood, eh? What a disappointment.
  10. Was that Hampden's last hurrah?

    The rail links to Wembley from central London are much better and plentiful than Glasgow to Hampden. Two tube lines to Wembley Park and also the Bakerloo and National Rail to North Wembley/Wembley Central. There are probably buses as well and you can probably drive and park nearby also. In terms of rail, getting back from Hampden to Fife and other places following a midweek international isn't easy either. Get out sharp or you've had it, basically. I used to drive to Linlithgow for the train to make sure I got back.

    Steakngravy's saying nothing on the advice of his lawyer.
  12. Andy Murray Latest and General Tennis Chat

    She's a home favourite playing in front of a partisan crowd - that sort of behaviour tends to get excused to an extent in such circumstances.
  13. Andy Murray Latest and General Tennis Chat

    The only issue here seems to be that Ramos made the mistake of (correctly) responding to Queen Serena's antics rather than ignoring them. A whole load of whataboutery defensing her behaviour, primarily because of who she is rather than anyone else. Naturally the umpire should've done nothing whilst having his integrity was being called into question... Astonishing to see Williams being praised from some for showing class by telling the crowd not to boo. The crowd, of course, would not have been booing had a certain someone not thrown a prolonged hissy fit. Sincerely hope there are enough out there to publicly defend the umpire, since the written narrative seems to be that Williams was wronged. The sort of nonsense levied at him is the stuff that destroys careers.
  14. I'm beginning to fear for Kevin Cuthbert's job prospects.

    Faux staunch is very in right now*, I heard. Its future may go the way of shell suits, however. *Still a no from me.
