I think Lewis Allan’s wage is the least of the clubs concerns just now. I also hope when you grow up and get a job, you’d don’t ever get ill.11
The players fund is ring fenced for new players is it not? Better off phoning the club and making a donation, or setting up an online donations page.0
Two games a week doesn’t help part time players either0
The last tine this happened was at the outbreak of WW2. The league was cancelled with no promotion or relegation. It’s the only outcome realistically possible if all fixtures can’t be fulfilled.1
The problem with allowing season ticket holders in, is that the club already has their money. It wouldn’t be popular but the clubs almost need to be charging whatever 500 people they allow in.2
Where have they pulled this figure of 500 from?
Probably thin air.
At Starks Park, with our average gate, you could easily position people to sit with three or four seats empty to either side of you and never come into contact with anyone. Why we would need to ‘cancel’ is ludicrous.1
Surely if they’re going to cancel the league it needs to be from when everyone had played everyone an equal amount of times? ie after 27 games?
I think they would just make this season void.1
It would appear that closed door matches may be inevitable. Surely the right call in the circumstances but devastating to clubs for loss of income. What then for the wee outfits who live hand to mouth?
I think all of the teams in our league fall into that bracket.0
I don't understand why McGlynn is persisting playing Bowie instead of Baird. Bowie has been struggling for weeks.
Maybe if Baird had been given a run out against Falkirk he might have gotten us a winner in that match too.
Agree about Bowie. I’d add Hendry to the list of players that need rested too.
I don’t think Baird can play on the side of a front three though. I assume he’s wanting to play two quick players up alongside Maclean.0
I don’t know why people are suggesting that we should have upped the tempo and scored more goals. We came away with no injuries or silly bookings, we will be fresh for next week. That’s called professional game management.7
Our highlights are edited and will be on the Rovers' website at midnight.
Rovers fans - next week I have a rare holiday so the Peterhead highlights package will likely not be up until Monday evening.
I’ll either be raging or very happy about that come next week!0
“Struggled”. Fucking hell
Greenied for thread title alone [emoji106]
Had to google him. Absolutely fantastic spot!0
Having watched the highlight back, it’s clear that there was no foul by Miller. He’s clever enough to know that he’s bigger and stronger than Davo and Munro and he just positioned himself in front of them and stood his ground, knowing that if they pushed him, it would have been a penalty. What we should have done was have someone like Maclean in front of him to try and clear it. Munro doesn’t exactly cover himself in glory but he’s got two players blocking him so he couldn’t get to it.0
I don’t think so Raith will collapse and do well to hold on to 3rd.Montrose look more likely for 2 nd . Falkirk will stroll it by 6 or 7 points and will win tonight by at least 2 and never look back. Having said that only 3 or 4 of our players are good enough for the championship, so that’s how bad this league is. After failing again to get promotion again Raith will go part time and become a mid table team in the seaside league befitting of their stadium, fan base and hellhole that is Kirkcaldy.
We are all Ian Ogilvie1
What's your problem exactly? I work 2 Saturdays out of 3 and most of the games I've made it to this season have ended up being away, last time I was inside San Starko was 22nd of February when we beat Clyde 1-0. And how am I an absolute doom merchant - what have I posted that has been negative exactly? I'm never on here and I've learned over the years not to take watching us seriously so never get overly angry at the inevitable despair that comes with supporting the Rovers.
My problem, going with the theme of the conversation at the time is with ‘fans’ who plaster negativity all over the Facebook site.
Here’s an example from a game we actually won!
P&B takes some flak but the people who post on Facebook are horrific for a whinge. Usually there'll be tears and snotters after any loss from folk who only follow on social media as part of some nostalgia from when they grew up in Kirkcaldy.
I’m calling out Mark Braid and Ian Ogilvie and betting that they haven’t been inside Starks Park since the Nelsons Tipped Cigarettes roof was on the South terracing. Two absolute doom merchants!4
Agree with the first part but we are 5 points better off than we were after the same number of games last season. I think the overall standard of the league is better this season too with decent Clyde and Peterhead sides replacing hopeless Brechin and Stenhousemuir teams. I’d say East Fife, Airdrie and Montrose are improved too.
5 points? I’d have thought it would have been more than that to be honest. I agree with the standard of the league comment being better.0
I heading abroad late afternoon on tuesday and will arrive at our hotel near to kick off time. Was going to watch it online . I'm wondering if it can be bought before I leave the UK. As it will be near to kick off if I can't and it may not be processed.
I’ve bought a game right before kick off time and had no issues if that helps mate.0
The window for purchase is 36 hours, at least when I go to buy. So as long as you can process about 10AM on Monday, that should cover you. (User, not expert)
I think he means that because he’s still in the UK, it won’t let him buy it as it’s only available to people abroad.1
At this stage of our first season down in League 1 - with a squad full of utter jobbers and kids - we had 53 points. That includes having to play Sevco twice.
Shows you how shite both of these sides are that neither are even keeping up with one of our worst sides ever.
Good effort. 5/100
The club can f**k right off firing out the no inspection planned tweet. I've cut a trip away short to attend and I'm already halfway home.
We're the biggest tinpot minter in Scottish football.
We had to play an outfield player in goals for a whole game and loaned our best player out to you lot who effectively relegated us. Wouldn’t think you’ll be taking our biggest minter crown anytime soon mate.8
Jack Smith going out on loan to Dundonald. I thought he’s looked pretty good when he’s played. EoS is a really poor level.
Yeah I was a bit disappointed when I heard that too. I’d have hoped he could have gone to a league 2 side and got game time there. At least if he gets 12/13 games under his belt between now and the end of the season, he will be sharper come the friendlies.0
3 cup finals, yet no trophy. Europe was defeat to a bunch of fishermen from Iceland and a Swedish lower league side wasn’t it?
The point he was making was that if we were regularly in cup finals and Europe, we wouldn’t be too concerned about where the money was coming from. Just because it’s a rival team doesn’t make it any less true.2

Agreed on the fans of other clubs that have shown support for us during this difficult time. I for one won’t forget it and will look at these clubs in a different light going forward.
