    re Annfield. Hope you paid half fare on the bus.

    Back in the good old days you sold 20 scratchcards per week (@10p each) for the Rovers supporters club and that got you free travel on an Alexander's bus to away games. 

    What the rules were about 13 year olds effectively being involved in gambling, I have no idea, but it got me to towns and grounds I'd never have been near otherwise. 

    I'm sure the first time I went to Annfield it was 70 pence at the boys gate.

    It doesn’t surprise me that Breen is off, if O’Ware isn’t too far from returning as suggested, he’d most likely be 5th choice at the club, which wouldn’t be favourable with him or with Rangers, they maybe feel he’ll get more game time at QOS. 

    I've never seen this Been guy play before, but if the return of Thomas O'Ware is going to put him down the pecking order, he must be brutal.

    you have to bear in mind that they are volunteers. Check out some of the highlight videos on SATV Youtube.

    I think most of the clubs' TV channels will be run by volunteers. 

    As I said above, I've got no problem whatsoever if they're partisan. 

    I went to have a peek on YouTube, but ended up watching your 20-0 game (great memories of the old Annfield), then countless views of your boy cementing Ian Black a few seasons back. Tremendous.

    Was hoping we can be Livingston new feeder club like stenny is to hibs in sending more players to us onloan.



    Even as a Rovers fan, I'm absolutely gobsmacked if the level of East Fife's ambition is to be a feeder club for a plastic franchise which has a core support of less than 1500 and has pretty much spent its way into near oblivion in every decade since its formation.

    SAFC, to my surprise have kept the PPV  price at £10.The commentary, like all clubs, is biased.

    I've got no great problem with that. 

    I'd rather have biased and informed than the clueless muppets on Premier Sports (Michael Stewart excepted) who covered our league cup tie at Tynecastle.

    Young Cowie looked to make a good stop in that period,  you score then and our game plan would have been oot the windae. 

    You're probably right, but Queens can probably point to a few 'what ifs' in the game at Palmerston at 1-3 and 2-3.

    Fair play to the Rovers that day, they were clinical and that bit sharper in the middle of the park, just as Queens were last night.

    I’m certain there were 10 men on the pitch due to McGregor getting sent off. The mixup literally lasted 20 seconds before the referee sorted it. Think we were bringing Ryan Thomson on. We also threw that game away. We also won the league that year, with Martin Hardie scoring 2 goals to win it in a title-decider at EEP. Just so we’re clear what the outcome of that season was and put a weird 20 second mistake from the officials in one game to the side.


    Aye, fair play. 

    Hardie was some signing for you. 

    Apparently we enquired about signing him on loan from St Johnstone, but couldn't afford his wages.

    I'd imagine we were big and sensible enough to realise that with it being a home game for Raith, and being one of your only sources of income we'd leave it to you. 

    Was it not eleven men on the pitch? McGregor had been sent off. 

    You could well be right with that. I'm sure it was a double sub and two came on and only one (Andy Kirk IIRC) went off. The most utterly bizarre thing about it was the referee going across to the Pars dugout and giving Kirk a yellow card!

    Decent line up and going by last night you’re spot on not needing to play a keeper.

    I must have misread that - I thought initially Mcmanus was going to be playing in goals. 

    I thought they were maybe going to go with only ten men to make up for the time a fee years back when they brought a sub on, but no one went off, leaving them with twelve men on the pitch.

    Raith’s record at EEP is absolutely honking. I don’t think they have won a single match here in the past 10 years (cup and league) 


    It's not great by any means, but we've only actually been in the same league for three seasons in the last decade. 

    And, yes we have won at East End in the last decade, albeit in the Ramsdens Cup, on our way to winning it. Tremendous seethe from the Pars fans that night when Joe Cardle celebrated our opener in front of them.

    No consolation to Raith fans but I thought that Raith TV was top notch.


    Most Rovers fans expressed similar sentiments towards QOS TV in October. 

    The general vibe back then was 'Thanks, but we'd rather have the three points than praise for our TV coverage'. Tonight, I can see where they were coming from.
