  1. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Crane must have a useless twin standing in for him. No danger that's the fucking left back from Alloa last season.
  2. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Edinburgh City and Peterhead. Not saying we won't lose to either of these teams if they get promoted and we don't, but f**k me. -10 virtue points.
  3. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Much as I'm happy to lay into Drysdale and co, we can't keep blaming them when events have now moved on. Under Sim, Callachan was sold and Smith wasn't sacked at the end of last season. Both those decisions had a huge impact on how last season, and this one, turned out.
  4. Champions League 2018-2019 Thread

    Spurs shite themselves as usual and are saved by the VAR. Amazing.
  5. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Concerning but the honesty is welcome. Very hard choices ahead of us next season if we're still in this league next season.
  6. Russia

    We used the sleeper train (Red Arrow). Was an excellent experience and is recommended. We were 2 days in each which wasn't really enough. I'd personally spend the extra day in St Petersburg; 3 should be enough for Moscow to see everything you want to. Peterhof Palace is highly recommended.
  7. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Just hurry up and name the clique so we can all get on with it.
  8. General Politics Thread

    There are a few builders/marketers of certain new builds develooments down here who are totally disinterested when applicants who need a mortgage turn up. Just an inconvenience to some of them. Buy to letters are often cash buyers so easier to deal with - less chance of pulling out. Huge price rises between 2012-2016 here coupled with tax changes have led to a lot of them moving north as well, so the impact will likely spread.
  9. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Hard to say which was worst. Alloa springs to mind given the deflation of the last day and sheer predictability of what was going to happen: league bottled and then a complete horror show in the play offs. Stirling Albion was hard to take given the run to make the play offs and then taking the lead in the tie in the away game despite being outplayed totally up until that point. Quickly went downhill after we scored that goal. Who could also forget Stirling Albion fans going mental and saying Marvin Andrews had ruined Steven Bell's career, and that he would be out for months, only for him to rip the piss out of us in the second leg? Brechin was just an inevitable, slow death that we all knew was coming from an utter car crash of a season.
  10. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    I'd successfully banished that from my memory. Thanks! But yeah...every chance it'll still go South.
  11. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Maybe we can shitfest a 1-0 defeat and keep ourselves in contention for the second. All our opponents need to do is shitfest us to a 0-0 at Starks and we've probably had it in the away leg.
  12. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Finishing second gets us the second leg at home. Given our away record, would much prefer to be playing at home in the second, especially if the tie is level or we are behind...
  13. Keep/punt/undecided

    No idea yet. Reasonable chance of it given the financial disaster of last season. This season we are allegedly in a better position, but I imagine we will still make a significant loss. It's a debate that's been done to death on the Raith thread the last couple of years, but there are some very, very harsh realities in front of us next season if the usual happens in the play-offs.
  14. Keep/punt/undecided

    I can't remember exactly who is/isn't under contract soome of this may be off the mark. Keep: Murray, McKay, Gillespie, Nisbet, Vaughan and probably Matthews. Under contract and not mentioned above: Thomson (keep but need another 'keeper as he's injured), Flanagan (won't be sad if he left) and Benedictus (punt if possible). The rest can leave. The above applies regardless of what league we're in next season.
