  1. While I agree the plans look great, I can’t help but feel slightly worried that the costs involved will have to come out of club funds either directly or indirectly. If SSP is spending lots of cash on this, does it mean that less is available to be invested in the football club?

    Lets be honest, why on earth do we need a new 4 storey building when the main stand has changing rooms, hospitality and conference suites available that already can’t be filled.

    I actually bought four but the fourth one was a ladies one for my wife.

    Grumswall, it's  fine mate I realised that. The four tops were not all priced at £43 as the wife's top was £36 and one of my other tops was £39.

     

    Hold on… you and your wife are both gonna be wearing them? Together? 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩

  3. That was a massive win for us yesterday. Not just to get consecutive wins on the board but getting minutes into Spencer and Matthews as well as starts and decent performances for some of the fringe players too. Add to that the imminent work permit for big John (hopefully).

    Cove has proved a difficult place for us recently so to get that particular monkey off our back with a makeshift team is another plus point. 
     

    Murray hasn’t had it easy so far since he joined. Let’s hope this is the start of things to come.

    It has never officially been part of the anthem, and fell out of use shortly after 1745. At the time of the Jacobite rebellion the song was a hymn, not a national anthem and the verse wasn't included when it was adopted as the anthem later in the 18th century.

    Well that’s not true. The line is still part of the anthem and it was decided, as recently as 2010, not to remove the verse in question…

  5. I’d rather they didn’t do a minutes silence after seeing what happened at Tynecastle the other night. It just turns into a toxic atmosphere with fans turning on each other.

    If we need to do something (if postponing Saturdays game wasn’t enough) then do a minutes applause. That way people who don’t want to join in can do so without upsetting anyone.

    I was a bit taken aback by that too. I can't be far off having seen every senior minute that Arnott has played, and while he's been broadly fine, with the odd good moments, I've not seen anything to suggest he's a legitimate squad option in the Championship at this point, let alone "good enough to start". 

    We're already at the point where we'll be leaving a good, senior central midfielder on the bench, and we've still got Matthews to come back. 

    If we'd just won two games on the bounce as opposed to losing two, nobody would be complaining about this. 

    Couldn’t agree more with what’s been said above. I’d also add the highland league is probably a far higher standard than some people are giving it credit for. It’ll certainly aid his development.

    Why would Goodwillie want a lump sum pay off unless he has an account of shore? If hes working elsewhere hes paying tax at a lower rate than max.Pay of would rob him of at approx 40% in one go.Even Mr Dean Park wouldn't pay out if he had any sense

     

    I’m not sure that’s accurate. I’m sure your tax code is calculated based on a years earnings.

    If he was paid 1,000 a week for a year (52k) he would pay the same amount of tax as he would on a one off 52k lump sum payment. 

  8. I wouldn’t say the price of hospitality is particularly bad, I think it’s the experience that’s the issue.

    I did it last season and I thought there was a lot the club could have done better. To begin with, the Raith Suite felt too sterile. Dim the lights a bit and get some music on. The menu was something along the lines of steak pie or chicken and gravy. How about modernising it a bit and offering a burger and chips, or pizza or something a bit less boring.

    Devils advocate here, but given the season is 36 games, why do all fans want a settled team and 3 points on game 1 ?

     

    Let me give you an example of why… last season we were drawn against Celtic away in both main cup competitions and won the other cup. Probably as lucrative a cup season as we could have hoped for. This season, we were knocked out of the group stages of a group we should have progressed from easily. That’s going to be a loss in revenue versus last season. 
     

    Had we had our squad built in time for the cup games started then there’s every chance we would have progressed and made more money out of the cup…. Same goes for the league. If we mess around in the first few games with a depleted squad, it’ll cost us.

    Rovers just go through these daft phases. It’s not the first Pink Top we’ve had. It’s not Virtue Signalling either. If it was the sponsors would all be Rape Crises and Feminist causes. 

    Agreed… and even if it was, so what? If the club is trying to build bridges and get people back onside then great!

  11. I was really impressed with us last night. I know Peterhead were poor but we pressed them so high up the park and didn’t give them a second on the ball. Our attacking play was impressive too from a quick tempo point of view.

    This was the first glimpse of Murray’s promise of out working other teams. Once we get a few more bodies in the door we will be in a very good place.

    I sold a number of Rovers tops last year on ebay and got a decent wedge. Got nearly 100 sheets for the half n half top when we won the 2nd Division under McGlynn. I managed to get my hands on a reproduction of the 1989/1990 top and it's fookin spectacular. 

    100 sheets? You better keep them hidden from the Pars fans, they will have them painted in no time!
