  1. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Basically into Sim’s pockets then as he oversees the club’s decline.

    Were you at Forfar? The 5-1 win at Dumbarton? You can’t say he doesn’t have ability. Consistency, confidence and attitude were no doubt concerns but he has skill.
  3. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I remember there being a bit of a clamour on here to get Flanagan tied up on a long-term deal shortly after McGlynn arrived. There were also no complaints when that materialised. I’m not upset he’s gone but he did offer us something we don’t have - width and the skill to beat a man. Showed in his cameo at Forfar in the play-offs that he has ability. But I accept he didn’t show it enough. Isn’t that a problem with all wingers though? Guess we’re going down the grafters route.
  4. Playoff Final - Raith v Queens / Queens v Raith

    Plenty of examples of home teams shitting the bed when the pressure’s on in games like this. Hibs v Hamilton is the obvious one. Accies scored in first 20 mins and then it was panic stations until they got 2nd in stoppage time. Duggan’s presence showed that Queens fans concerns over crosses into the box were well founded. Get him up with Nisbet from start on Saturday and start shelling it in there. Nisbet had nothing to work off until he had support up with him. Agree with earlier post about 4-4-2 with Crane on left wing and Murray LB. Crane’s throws offer extra option of getting it in the mix (more proper McGlynn stuff). It’s very nearly all over bar the shouting but there was enough horror defending from Queens last night to give us hope. And, yes, I know they can say the same about us.
  5. Playoff Final - Raith v Queens / Queens v Raith

    Nisbet, it’s Nisbet. Nisbet, Nisbet, Nisbet, Nisbet. NISBET.
  6. Baird’s demeanour in the 2nd half was absolutely cringeworthy. Especially when you consider he’s pretty much Forfar’s most senior player and the assistant manager. Him losing the plot resulted in his team-mates doing likewise and making it easy for us to kill the game. Was still up for grabs for Forfar even with 10 men. Well played Ross.
  7. Raith Rovers v Stranraer

    He arrived after 7 games of the league season. Got what we deserved today. Didn’t think we should have been “4 or 5 up” before the 40min mark as someone said. Stranraer had plenty of the ball and pinned us back for chunks of the 1st half, Vitoria going close a couple of times.

    Those figures will also include selling Callachan to Hearts. Without that, the loss would have been about £50,000 more. Terrifying.
  9. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    The scale of the losses is a disgrace. Only natural to have some sort of loss as a FT team in the seaside league but that’s horrendous. Still, at least Sim’s an accountant. I’m sure he’s got it all under control...
  10. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    But it’s ok for good old Dick’s teams to do it.
  11. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Expand please. Genuinely intrigued.
  12. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I didn’t say Smith would have done better but would he have done worse? I’m a fan of McGlynn but the stats make grim reading.
  13. Brechin v Raith

    We won at Arbroath. But I agree with the rest of your post.
  14. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    After 10 games, we were sitting W5 D5 L0. Five defeats in 12 games since. Even if the players aren’t his, that’s a poor return from McGlynn.
  15. Brechin v Raith

    Ach, at least Arbroath aren’t getting beat...
