    Fingers crossed.

    I don't think the diagonal strip is the worst but something about it just looks kinda cheap. I think its the black panels and the fact it was ill fitting (it was like wearing a tent). This is our best kit for decades IMO... Clean, smart, simple, classy and fits like a glove. I'd absolutely love to see us go back to something similar for next season.

    Thomas has been running his soccer school for a while now. In a video he posted the other day he actually said being a full-time footballer means he has loads of spare time so that's why he set it up, going part-time would probably lead to less spare time as I imagine he'd also need a job (I don't imagine a part-time wage and the soccer school wage would come close to what he earns just now). I'll be fairly surprised if he doesn't remain full-time. He could easily walk into a top half Championship side. If he does decide to go part-time then yourselves or Alloa would be the obvious choice but I wouldn't be surprised if even the likes of Hamilton or Livingston were to take a punt.

    When you a have a top 4 League 1 budget the only thing you should be scrapping for is a promotion playoff place.

    I'd love to see Duffy turn us into a force at this level, I really would, but I'm just not convinced. Hopefully he will prove me wrong, he was the guy I wanted appointed and he seems like a decent bloke. I'll be honest though, as much as we have improved from the turgid shite Aitken served up, we haven't improved enough IMO. Whilst the squad is imbalanced and full of crocks, Duffy still has a decent pool of players to work with and has brought in 6 or 7 of his own since arriving. As I mentioned in my original post, there's just something there that doesn't feel right, I just can't really put my finger on what it is. Duffy just seems very unenthusiastic and the players just don't really look like they are enjoying it much either and now we have rumours of Ballantyne heading back to Montrose which would back that up. I'm more than happy for Duffy to stay and build his own squad (if he keeps us up) and at the same time I'm more than happy to part ways amicably and seek out a new gaffer for a completely fresh start next season. I wouldn't at all be surprised to see Duffy walk at the end of the season.

    I know what you mean but I think it's more apathy than anything else tbh. Whilst yesterday's result wasn't terrible this season in general has been an absolute shit show from start to finish. In years gone by I've been a nervous wreck because we've battled hard all season to retain our Championship status, this year we have just been absolutely shite. Despite not being nervous I'm still not convinced we're safe yet. Off the park we are making strides but on the park something just feels stale and negative, even with the change of gaffer. I'm not saying we should be punting Duffy or anything but I'd love to see us going into next season with some young whippersnapper ex pro in charge who's full of enthusiasm and fresh ideas. Jim's just dull, disconnected from the support and it doesn't particularly look like he's enjoying his time here.

    Thankfully it isn't the fans on here who have to do that. We may have bigger issues given we have already started selling season tickets at top end League 1 prices. I had a quick look at the League 2 prices after today's game and it looks like the average going rate is about £160. The way this season has gone I wouldn't rule out some twists and turns to come.
  8. Raith Rovers v Stranraer

    You deserve nothing but misery in the playoffs you absolute bed wetters.
  9. Forfar v Dumbarton 13/4/19

    Carswell injured in the warm up, Boris starts. Shiter.

    Absolute travesty if Reilly ends up at shite like Kelty working under shite like Ferguson.
  12. Sons' sorrow

    Technically aye, but we could agree a severence package that works out cheaper in the long run. You could also find that if he is fucked and can't play that he's offered a coaching role elsewhere that means he's happy to walk for nothing. Either way I'd be fairly surprised if Loy is still with us come August.

  14. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I assume because the playoffs are technically Championship games it rules out naming a trialist goalkeeper?

    I vote D - none of the above
