  1. The normalisation of the far-right continues

    Rooting for a full-sized joint of gammon next.
  2. wut Indeed it was - until Airdrie's complete financial implosion rendered that claim to a league spot null and void. That's quite rightly the default position in Scottish football, as opposed to nonsense countries like England where the likes of Leeds can massively overspend, go bust and then just waltz back in at the same level under a new holding company. Liquidation is a huge event and requires serious sporting consequences. It could have just easily happened to Morton at the same time, and the outcome should have been exactly the same in our case. You didn't 'have' to do anything. Whether people object to what happened to Clydebank or not, all responsibility for that decision rests with Airdrie's custodians and not the clubs who refused to let them reclaim their league place. They should have been forced to compete with other applicants and if they had, then clubs should have voted them down as well. Stranraer were the only good guys who called for that outcome but were shot down by the rest. No, you wouldn't have had a national league team to support. There was nothing to stop an Airdrie football club entering the juniors and playing their way up through that level; indeed, that's been the option that Clydebank's supporters pursued themselves. No football club in Scotland has got an entitlement to play in the national leagues and thankfully now the pyramid is flushing away that mentality. Well that's just tragic really.
  3. Cove Thread

    The only fanbase carrying a sackload of chips on their shoulders right now are yourselves, as the Cowdenbeath contingent's shrieking on every single Cove thread and bizarre pep talks for Berwick before the second leg amply demonstrate. Still, I'm sure that one season in your entire history when you were half decent will prove great solace when you're sent packing to the East of the Scotland League.
  4. Cove Thread

    If Saturday is anything to go by, if Cove add three or four solid League Two level players then they should be in and around the promotion play-offs next season. Think they'd need a larger overhaul than that to win the title. Looks like the tragic permaseethe of Cowdenbeath fans is going to follow them around until the latter outfit gets emptied into the Lowland League as well.
  5. The Falkirk FC Thread

    This sense of injustice in that post is intense and savoury.
  6. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    If 'by a bawhair from doing a Falkirk' you actually mean 'skooshing yet another top half finish' then sure. Though I can understand how the optics of a successful campaign in the second tier would easily confuse an East Fife fan; was it fourteen points you mustered when you last slithered up more than twenty years ago? A: Because 'after 1988' is simply a meaningless, arbitrary year. A nice, round half-century captures Raith Rovers' permadiddy status far more objectively than your desperate straw-clutching exercise. That's the reality that you just can't face here - your absolutely tiny purple patch in the mid-1990s is totally irrelevant and now you're back to living in the cold, dark shadow of everyone else, floundering in a tinpot seaside league for good. Gutted for you.
  7. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Bonus fun fact: as a result of yet another attempt to slither out of the seaside leagues proving to be a total failure, Raith Rovers will now officially record a grand total of three seasons playing in the top flight of Scottish football between 1970 and 2020. Three. Just let that sink in.
  8. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Except that you're not better or even on the same level as us champ. Raith Rovers have: - won no significant cup competitions in their entire history. (0:1) - won fewer league titles (8:10) - spent fewer seasons in the top flight (36:52) - and spent more seasons slumming it in the seaside leagues (12:8) Forever living in our long. cold and dark shadow. And forever gubbins. You hate to see it happen.
  9. Weekend Betting

    Got a treble odds boost on it from 888Sport for opening a new account, so got £496 back from a tenner. And another £37 from Cove -1 during play. A vintage day.
  10. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    It was indeed different: we won the division at the first time of asking and waltzed back up; whereas your rabble have clearly found your natural level. Thanks for playing anyway champ.
  11. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Yet another season floundering in the seaside leagues, getting horsed by plumbers and brickies from Peterhead to Stranraer. What a terrible, wee shame that is for you.
  12. Dundee vs St. Mirren

    Saint Mirren. Dundee. The two most tinpot laps of honour in the history of Scottish football there.
  13. Aberdeen contacted people who told them what they wanted to hear - that's why a coach and horses has already been driven through the club's ridiculous 'shuttle bus' idea. It's really not my fault that your club is wedded to a shan project tbh.
