  1. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    We didn’t turn up today. Really piss poor. Hibs are a better team than us but they weren’t even made to work for it. A play off against East Fife all that is left of the season and going by the mentality of the squad, we’ll lose that. Buckle up for another season in the seaside league
  2. Forfar vs. Raith Rovers

    Thought Forfar deserved the win. We didn’t do enough to merit the three points. All too predictable really. Fair play to the Forfar keeper for spraying water from his water bottle on the drunken Rovers idiot behind the goal who ran down the front to shout abuse at him after their first goal. Highlight of the match sadly.
  3. Israel v Scotland

    Always suspected that this National League thing would simply offer Scotland another way to f**k things up.
  4. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Just watched that interview. I fucking love John McGlynn
  5. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Happy with that appointment. The last few years it’s been the mental attitude that has been weak so confident McGlynn will sort that. He’s good at taking average footballers and getting them organised and working together. He’s also a thoroughly decent guy which is a relief after some of the zoomers we have had recently. My only nagging doubt is the old ‘never go back’ feeling that it’s hard to replicate things second time around, but in McGlynn we trust.

    Might be wrong, but suspect the length of time to appoint a new manager is as much about cash flow as making sure they find the right person
  7. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    It will be Cuthbert. It’s typical Rovers. Waste a couple of weeks of everyone’s time and appoint someone they could have appointed immediately. Edited to say I’m not actually opposed to it being Cuthbert. He’s as much chance as anyone else linked with the job to get us up.

    Given how thin the criteria to enter the Hall of Fame has been getting in recent years, they’ll probably be inducted at the same time.
  9. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Not sure there’s any delusions of grandeur. The last few years have been an absolute shit show at Rovers. There’s a demoralised support and our player budget is vastly reduced. Having said all that, we are the only full-time team in this league and have proven that, if managed properly, we can compete reasonably well in the Championship. If you’re an out of work manager in Scotland with a belief in your own abilities then it’s no great surprise that you’d think ‘aye, I could turn them around’. And if you do succeed then there’s always the potential of a bigger club and bigger wage around the corner. Full-time positions working in Scottish football management aren’t exactly abundant so I think that alone would make most potential candidates overlook any downsides of coming to Kirkcaldy.

    Grant Murray...

    Who said there wasn’t? Doesn’t change the fact that that lettering is horrendous
  12. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    That drone footage of Starks is cracking. The only downside is it brings home what an abomination the font is on the Penman Stand. Thank f**k I don’t have to look at that on matchdays
  13. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Lee Clark in for it according to Matt Elder. Would be happy with that
  14. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    It really would. It may even top the Anelka decision
  15. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Relax. It was a tongue in cheek theory. The Board would have sacked him at the end of last season if they could have afforded it. They only didn’t because they couldn’t afford to. The bottom line is Smith is a shit manager. The whole of last season proved that. The League Cup effort this season proved that. We finished behind Cowdenbeath and Cove Rangers remember. He also has the personality of a dead fish. A mad 5 minutes against Airdrie and a home win against a poor Forfar team doesn’t change any of that. The club is fucked financially, partly down to Barry’s abject failure to get us out of this league. If he didn’t realise this and walked off in the huff about not getting non-existent money for signings then he’s an idiot. I suspect he’s just got a more secure gig than Raith Rovers lined up.
