  1. Aye fair’ish point. And if you don’t want to do it, fair enough. But most people are not directly near it and a facing straight forward and ‘booing’ isn’t exactly painting a target on your back.
  2. Without the handball or something similarly stupid it looked like a 0-1 all over it. Disappointing. Stopped me stupidly heading to Kirkcaldy for a night out which I’m in equal parts raging and buzzing about. Ah well, big game next week!
  3. I know he did mate. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/what-romelu-lukaku-song-lyrics-11198902.amp But kick it out and other players who have had this sung about them find it playing on a racial stereotype. Just because one person isn’t personally bothered about racism doesn’t mean others are not. And what about non-white support at the game? I know my mate thinks it’s racist and doesn’t like it - should I not bring him to the game because other people think it’s ‘banter’? I'm not in the game of arguments and will sign off on this now - it’s just a song that should not be sung.
  4. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/what-romelu-lukaku-song-lyrics-11198902.amp Mate, the players who it’s sung about see it as offensive and discriminatory. also if liberal in this context means not singing racist songs then yes, let’s hope pie and bovril and beyond is liberal as f**k.
  5. Mostly the young team - but not just them - have on several occasions have sung a racist stereotypical chant about Mendy (the one about a cock being massive, of course). I’m not saying they are racists. I think they are ignorant. But this chant has to stop. Right now.I’ve tried several times to shout it down and - disappointingly - not many other rovers fans have joined me. It’s embarrassing and a fucking disgrace. I feel so sorry for Mendy and the black players playing for Livingston and anyone else who is effected. Disgusting. I know that the Raith TV boys read this, please pass this on to the club and get this publicly stopped. Again, I don’t think it’s based on hatred. It’s ignorance. So call this out, educate and stop it now. For anyone in the away end. If it starts again. Boo it down immediately. If you don’t, you are condoning it.

  7. The slight caveat with Jordan Thomson was that he did actually start very well. Put in a great performance in the away win at Ayr the opening day and then up at Tannadice in the 2-2 draw. There was clearly a player in there - and he was very young at the time. He was absolute brutal pretty soon after that though, but I think it was an attitude thing mostly - he had absolutely chucked it. And to be fair, so did many under the absolute charlatans we had in charge that year. I don’t think you can really judge anyone’s ability fairly from that year. Attitude aye, ability... I’m not too sure. It was a fucking shambles. So maybe in an environment where he was happy, had actual real coaching/managing and a bit of maturity the player that was in there has come out. And then he’s improved from there. ETA: that handball at Easter road... f**k me. When that went in you just new relaxation was coming.
  8. I kind of see this as a classic ‘free hit’. We win and it’s great momentum boost, and likely enough cash from the next round to find another player. We lose and it’s not unexpected so not big confidence dent and we have one less midweek game which may damage the league campaign. I think the former is the better scenario but the latter is not a bad second prize. Especially because we are still in the ‘slayed the **** in the final 2014’ cup and already have a midweek game on the back of it. For both sides the cum in yer breeks scenario is a win and a draw at home against one of the non-league sides for a shit hot chance of a quarter final. 3-0
  9. Ah cheers renton, glad to hear it can be done. Did you phone ahead for putting the carry out in the office? I might have a bag which has work stuff and the like in ias well as the booze so if they would take a bag in that would be ideal!
  10. Good day folks, I have a logistics query I was hoping and would be most grateful if you can help with! I am thinking of coming down to the game in a few weeks by train (from Glasgow). I did this journey once before and had no issues as the game got rained off after 30 minutes! However, looking at the train times unless I make the 16:59, the next one is at 7pm and is longer too - mans I would likely not getting home until 10pm'ish which I am not sure is an option. The questions are then: 1) is there a taxi company you would call reliable which i could organise to collect me from outside the away end? 2) Would leaving at 16:45 get me down to the station in time? (google says it is just a few minutes but that doesn't account for traffic/traffic lights etc.) 3) What to do about a carry out for the return train? Would like Fitba Bar put my supplies behind the bar for collection? And if so, would a total of 13 minutes be enough time to get there, nip in and get the supplies and then get down to the station and on the train in time? (The other option I see here is having a carrier bag and stashing this somewhere near the ground if there are any green areas!?). Any logistical help will be much appreciated as I really fancy the trip but just don't think I would be able to if it meant having to wait for the 7pm train. Cheers!
  11. Hmm... definitely would have lost that last year but still not an overly great result all things considered... still top over the break for the cup is good though, psychologically. Important to get the win at home next time out.
  12. 20 mins boys, fucking c’mon and get a winner!
  13. Think the regularity of visiting Angus, horrible memories, horrible weather, difficulty of public transport (no train station ) and just after Xmas with many more enticing away games coming up, I would suggest the away crowd will be down on its usual. With the weather as it is it’s a day for grinding hard and broadly no nonsense type football - but also being brave at the right times and playing. Getting that decision right about ‘when to get it down and play’ will be key. I’ve also been worrying about Regan but was going to keep quiet... Just fucking win!!
  14. Will we ever have a full squad fit? Serious question. Can it only be bad luck for a while? Are we doing something wrong (something in training, signing too players who are prone to injury? Not valuing robustness enough when thinking about who to sign?)? Its fucking ridiculous 😂
