  1. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    This is cracking weather. Football can get tae when the weather is like this. I’d rather guzzle cider in my garden, like a tramp in the lovely sunshine.
  2. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Hypocrisy! Shameful hypocrisy! It was never like this when I was a lad.
  3. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Many games you been to this season?
  4. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Where have you appeared from? Probably a glory hunting Arbroath fan.
  5. Next Scotland Manager

    If fucking Scott Gemmill and Malkkky McKay are the level the muppets at the SFA are scrabbling around at, then Scotland will be shite for the foreseeable future. The players aren’t the best. The SFA need to give them some sort of chance by appointing a decent management team. One that can at least enthuse them enough to turn up and play. That suggestion about picking the team by committee again is a better shout than Gemmill and Malky.
  6. Next Scotland Manager

    If only that lad Welsh hadn’t been shot! Chic Charnley?
  7. Next Scotland Manager

    If he gets the job we need to form an angry mob, purchase some pitchforks and March on Hampden.
  8. Next Scotland Manager

    Because he seems a guid c**t. Which means he’ll not even be considered by the SFA.
  9. Alex McLeish Is Sacked.

    Scoop Jackson always gets his man. Claimed.
  10. Scotlands last genuine world class player?

    The Conductor is from Fife?
  11. Scotlands last genuine world class player?

    I’m not that cultured. I really liked Maradona. Does that count? I come and go between liking and not being that fussed for that type of Paul McStay midfielder who plays a good game in 2 or 3 in a good season, but more likely a good game in 7 or 8 most seasons.
  12. Scotlands last genuine world class player?

    You watch Scotland. Relative to them most South American players look world class.
  13. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    In terms of away games I am a total part-timer. I suppose in terms of play-off games I am too. I’ve went to 8 away games over the past three seasons. In terms of home games I usually make about 2/3 of them.
  14. A View From The Terrace

    I really like this show. I watch on BBC iplayer - usually midweek - so looking back at the Boom and Bust section is hilarious. Those songs at the end are a nice contrast but they are fairly shite. It reminds me of the section in episodes of Toast of London where he sings some mad song which makes you raise your eyebrows.
  15. Scotlands last genuine world class player?

    If he goes to Barca, maybe he’ll win something.
  16. Scotlands last genuine world class player?

    Chances of him being voted South American Footballer of the Year are pretty slim.
  17. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I think you have to be a connoisseur of lower league football to see a big difference. For me we haven’t played decent football since McKinnon left.
  18. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I mention three games I attended in that post you quoted. Brush up on your reading and comprehension skills.
  19. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    1. Alloa. Although we had fucked it on the final day of the season, I still hoped we’d make a better fist of this. I didn’t travel to the away leg, but followed it and was in pain seeing the goals going in. I went to the home leg and saw us go 1-0 down just before half time, so that was 3-0 on aggregate against a team we had huffed and puffed against the previous Saturday. Couldn’t face the second half and left for the pub. 2. Brechin. I knew that shower of shite would get relegated so I didn’t bother going. Watched the updates from the second leg and couldn’t believe what happened. Even for our gutless bunch that was a total shitshow. The late extra time equaliser for Brechin was a blow. Then Brechin miss their first two penalties and still win the shoot out. Terrible. 3. Hibs. Went to the midweek home win at Starks. We got our one win which was nice. Didn’t travel to Easter Road but seeing the score come in was a blow. 4. Airdrie. Missed the first leg at home where we fucked it up. Went to the away leg but we were never really in it. As I recall we got a late equaliser but lost 4-2 on aggregate. 5. Stirling. I was down in London so I missed this one. Time dulls the painful memories.
  20. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Then all they need is an early away goal, like Alloa last year and it’s fucked for another year. I’d prefer the home leg first and I suspect we are shit enough to make that happen.
  21. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Does it really make any difference? We’ve been at home first and away first in other play-offs and it made no difference to the outcome.
  22. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    We are probably baking a cake.
  23. The Champions vs Roaring Raith

    Hopefully we can get our second win of the season at Gayfield. I won’t be betting on it, but hopefully it happens.
  24. Best Place to Live in Scotland

  25. Best Place to Live in Scotland

    Dundee? Maybe. Nice swimming pool. V&A is just a tease; a vast cavern with not much in it. It’s alright. I want to live for a year in Assynt, as I like this place most. I’d imagine the winters could be cold, wet and bleak, like they are in the rest of Scotland, just with less going on. Castle Stalker is probably a bit cold in the winter. I’ve never been there and until this article i’d never heard of Port Appin. I shop online. They only have stores in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and the weeg. John Lewis is anywhere you have the Internet. I don’t shop at John Lewis anyway.
