  1. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    To be honest I wouldn’t care if we had thrown the lead and bombed out. It’s a total nonsense tournament and we’d be better off out of it. Only played 1 game and 3 guys limped off at ft, Duggan might be ok but both Wedderburn and Murray are serious doubts for the following league game. Too hefty a price to pay (too many games with injury potential) with a limited squad for no real monetary gain. Get out of it sharpish before we lose key players like we did last season, why don’t we ever learn?
  2. Raith Rovers vs Aberdeen Colts

    Thon lad Bruce Anderson looks like a decent prospect. If Wedderburn and Duggan have picked up knocks that keep them out of the East Fife game, then Smith wants castrating, decent performance and win not withstanding.
  3. Raith Rovers vs Aberdeen Colts

    I'd have liked that twice if it had let me.
  4. Raith Rovers vs Aberdeen Colts

    My last game before the Forfar home game as I head back to work tomorrow, so I'll be going. Hopefully it's mostly youth players McGuff, Valentine, Watson, McKay, Berry, Smith (if fit), Stevenson and Davo, Milne, Flanigan. Maybe Duggan and anyone else that could do with some game time. Can we play trialists? 642 paying in and the game to be won on pens by the Reds.
  5. Decent enough pergormance and deserved win in the end. Very soft pen but it was a late challenge I thought rather than anything malicious. Nicely taken pen and then we huffed and puffed a bit and generally rode our luck from time to time. Once the 2nd goal arrived the relief was palpable and you could see the confidence flowing a bit. Thought Flanigan and Nesbit were our best performers though to be fair most had decent a game. Now do yourself a favour Baz and play as many kids as you can on Tuesday night and get the feck out of that nonsense cup.

    I saw him play 7 games for the dev side last year, 1 game for the 1st team and he looked a far better keeper than Lennox or Smith. Out of the dev side he was the one I thought had the most potential. Having now seen both McGuff and Wright in action Ive got no doubt who I'd rather we had in goal tomorrow. You question his height yet he's the same height as Andy Goram was when he played for Oldham and Hibs. Was he too small to be a top class keeper?
  7. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I think Wright has said he is fit and been given the ok to play. Has to be said though, Smith is an absolute clown for his treatment of Rory Brian, I'll wager if he'd given him some game time last season he'd have stayed and been available, hell he'd probably even have been a challenger for the jersey over RT.

    I’d take him in a heartbeat, he caused us no end of problems for Alloa at SP last season.

  10. The new pitch has been externally funded. The money wouldnt have gone into the squad regardless. Smith wasted our budget last season (Smith etc) as he has done this season, so has no one else to blame than himself when he's hopefully punted! Sim backed the club to his own financial detriment last season. In my 20+ years supporting the club he's the only financially prudent owner we've had who has been active in trying to better our position. So by that definition are you suggesting Turnbull Hutton wasn’t “financially prudent”? Sim & Sinton May be “financially prudent” but they are rapidly exposing themselves to be utter footballing incompetents. Investing in installing a £700,000 Super surface when the team is languishing in the 3rd tier (and getting worse by the month) doesn’t look exactly clever to me.
  11. I know Andy Mill was there along with his wife, but who was the other director or has Mrs Mill been added to the board too?
  12. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    If you don't have budget to sign more/better players, where is it to sack a management team and replacements? ah but you are applying logic to the issue, you arent taking into account that Rovers have form on things like this.
  13. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    clucking bell, things are grim just now.
  14. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I dont think its beyond the realms of possibility that the alleged signing targets were a bit of a fabrication to generate interest in season tickets. As for Baz getting more funds if we start badly I cant see it. He will get something though, the tin tack! Unfortunately for Raith Rovers FC it looks increasingly like Mr Sim and his cohab are more interested in the plastic pitch than the team on. That said I think Sept Baz will be away by the end of the 1st week in Sept. A new guy (if they can find one, the job is rapidly becoming a poisoned chalice) will be brought in but too late to sign anyone and no longer with even the cheap option of promoting Craig Easton to the job he probably should have had at least a wee shot at when it was obvious to all that the players under Yogi had chucked it.

    Rory Brian left the club before his arse festered and fell off due to splinters he was picking up from sitting on the bench watching Calamity Smith selling points down the Swanny. Smith didn't rate him and Rory knew it. Everybody except Baz could see he was worth a shot but he was never going to get it.
