  1. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Feel free to give me a pm about it. As I said I'm on the app so can't easily do so. I'm happy to do it once I'm at my laptop again though.

    For whatever reason in his two spells with us it hasn't worked out for Spence (his chip over moshni apart) He was here last season, Armstrong was here for 2/3 months of this season. Flannagan pretty much got a new contract out of having Armstrong on the other wing taking the heat off him.

    I pulled you up on it at the time. Was a couple of months back or so. I even seeked clarity from another fife fan to make sure I wasn't being precious about it. It was me you had a go at for having learning difficulties, so you are right that you didn't attack anyone with learning difficulties. I'm on the app or I would have a look for the exact posts.

    Had it just been banter, I doubt anyone (myself included) would have taken issue. When you attack people for potential learning difficulties etc then your just showing yourself up as being a tit.

    Not showing up as letting me qoute the rest of your post. We have supposedly tried the quality over quantity squad this season. We don't have reserves. We have a hand full of youth players on ft contracts.

    This week's episode was a bit boring and not something I really felt needing explored. Since Rick left though it has been better so I'm not too fussed that there has been a filler episode to tie up a few little things.

    I think the main reason dunfermline turned a profit was they had shed their debt. We still have ours which impacts on the budget we have available. Dunfermline also had larger crowds than we get again giving aj a bigger budget etc. The hybrid model worked for us the last time we were in this league and even up into the championship. It wouldn't solve all of our problems but it would allow us a larger player pool to build a squad from in what in theory should be a more cost effective way.

    Aye wasn't my best effort in fairness.

    Is that not how they normally get people to their games? Walk down leven high street, chuck a few tickets and shout scramble?

    Welcome to the asylum and may I be the first to tell you to "open your eyes" I would be happy with Turner, Kirkpatrick and Henderson. Dunsmore is unlikely to want to come to us, I'd imagine Linton would be the same. Hilson is injury prone although a good player on his day, we already have Vaughan filling that role. Mcguigan has scored goals, hasn't looked that great when iv seen him up against bene and davo which raises a question mark. Hybrid model worked for us very well in the past in this league then up to the next when it was phased out over a couple of seasons. Mcglynn knows how to make it work.

    I agree as a partnership they haven't worked. Matthews is too similar to both to form an effective partnership aswell. I would keep Nat before I kept Gillespie. I'd rather a solid performer most weeks than one who shows up 1 in 5. That was the point I was intending to make but never quite got around to making. I won't get into the specifics of why I'd keep Nat, as I know he is a very marmite type of player. I just think he is more consistent and for all his bad passes etc he is the only one trying to crack open the opposition from a deeper position. With the right players around him he could be the perfect anchorman in midfield at this level.

    Mcglynn said in one of his interviews recently he was rotating the keepers so he could better gauge who should be no1. I find it pretty telling with Lyness that St mirren fans said he could easily be a championship level keeper, but looks worse than Thomson. I wouldn't be adverse to Lyness moving on in the summer regardless of the league we are in. Should davo be offered a new contract, then we need to move bene on as they can't play together. I wouldn't mind them both leaving and having Murray as a cb next season with mckay as another option. We have to get a natural rb and lb in, in the summer. Watson is already signed on and valentine would provide depth at lb, but they can't be expected to start every game. Gillespie quite clearly has the ability to be a standout at this level but really has flattered to deceive most of the time. I like Nat as a player and would be happy if he stayed. He has a very good "football brain" and often picks out a pass few others could at this level. He is slow and imobile but definitely could do a job next season with the right players beside him. Matthews should be kept as he is a good enough player for this level and has shown in the past he is competent in the championship. Dingwall started well but has fell flat but in a mcglynn team his work rate will see him right for next season. Nisbet is the only St I would keep for next season. I haven't seen enough of Jack Smith but he strikes me as being in the mould of a bryce or Graham when mcglynn was here previously. Buchanan needs to move on, can't fault his effort every week but he's not done the one thing he was brought to the club to do, score goals. He's very wasteful with chances, probably from being completely misused the past two seasons. Vaughan is a no brainer and is, if fit the best player in the league.

    On the face of it, no. We could have theoretically signed a couple of defenders who have went elsewhere in this division. But where we as a club or was mcglynn offered them when they have become available and we had the funds? If what he was offered wasn't in his estimation any better than we do have, then it would be a waste of a wage.

    Debate? Which is natural among people of differing opinions. Eta: I can't recall anyone calling you an arsehole etc for having an opinion in the past.
