  1. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    It’s the Grant Murray scenario. On paper he’d probably done just enough to be afforded another go (just) but fans had lost patience so the Board knew that things would sour pretty quick. So he was binned and replaced with McKinnon. The difference is we couldn’t afford to sack Smith after the Ayr game so the Board took the decision to retain him and keep their fingers crossed. It’s now unravelling in spectacular fashion. Some good viewing for fans of other clubs coming up I suspect

    Got to laugh at the fact we’ve not even launched our strip yet due to supplier problems and the team has brought expectations crashing down already. We must be the only club who can’t even capitalise on pre-season false optimism.
  3. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    First building block in the nightmare scenario today. Poor early season performances lead to fans turning against Smith. Club stick by him until atmosphere is poisonous. He eventually gets sacked. New manager comes in burdened with all the duds Smith signed for the season. Mid-table mediocrity beckons. Of course today could just be a blip. You never know with the Rovers. Regardless the league cup ‘campaign’ is fucked before it even started. Treat the rest of the games as meaningless friendlies to get ready for the league

    Always like Johnny Court. Good luck to him, except against us obviously.

    Also had a laugh about the email. Big Kev had me at hello

    The prize draw will be made at half time in the McGurn testimonial match. And will be won by Dave Wann
  8. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I’ll be at every home game and most of the away games so there’s no real risk of me not supporting my team. Your logic on this seems to be it’s always been shit so that’s an excuse for it to continue to be shit. The club needs cash to build a squad. They need to sell season tickets. Who are most likely to buy season tickets? Folk who had one last year. If a significant number of people hadn’t yet renewed, f**k it if even just one person hadn’t renewed then it’s worth someone sitting down for 10 minutes to draft an email saying ‘Dear punter, please renew now to help us build our squad for the season ahead’. It’s brutally obvious. The fact that the club haven’t taken this simple step shows they either don’t give a shit or the whole operation is woefully inept. I fear it’s actually a mix of both.
  9. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I have had a season ticket for the last 7 or 8 years. I haven’t renewed yet but I’ve not received one single bit of communication from the club despite them having my address and email. That side of the club is woefully inadequate. They just don’t understand the need to build a relationship with ‘customers’

    Incredible strength from James Graham to sing Scott’s song given how close they were. The raw emotion is there to see
  11. 2018 World Cup - Russia #GotGotNeed

    I’m waiting on one last swap to get me under the 50. I’ve still got a shitload of doubles. DM me your list of 59 and I’ll see if I’ve got any you need

    Unfortunately only about 40 folks at the hustings, so the vast majority of votes were cast without that valuable insight. The whole thing was put on Raith TV so was available to all or at least all with the Internet. I’m guessing most folk either knew the candidates or voted based on the statements.
  13. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    The vote was open for a week after the hustings took place and the email I got at the start told you there was going to be a hustings. I couldn’t make up my mind from the statements so waited until the hustings and voted afterwards. Anyone choosing to vote before the hustings did so by choice in the full knowledge there was a hustings coming.
