  1. Well he didn’t play CB in either of the two recent games against Killie for us. Even when him and Mackie have both played and we had a back 5, Mackie has been the one playing CB, to the left of a 3. He got thrown in there briefly on Saturday but that was it. Where are you getting the stats from that he played there 7 times for Alloa last season etc?
  2. When has Dick spent any time playing anywhere other than left back across the years? I’m all for stats but please don’t just make stuff up.
  3. Can I also add, I don’t think I’ve seen a better save in front of the South Stand in my 30 years going to Rovers games.
  4. You’re right with that last paragraph. I’d also add that Bene needs to look at himself, a terribly unnecessary tackle after a terribly unnecessary attempted mazy run! It’s easy to highlight the referee’s mistakes… of which there were many, but if we have kept 11 on the park we would have won today.
  5. How has Ian Murray outperformed expectations? Are Airdrie not one of only two full time teams in that league? Reaching the playoffs is hardly pulling up trees for them.
  6. I genuinely hope you guys stay up. I love going to Dumfries for a game. Pubs are good and the locals are a sound bunch!
  7. I think if you believe this then you’re massively wrong. Why on earth would Raith want to keep him sweet and pay all his wages? He would have been more likely to accept a reduced pay off if we were blocking him from playing football ever again. He’s contracted with Raith until he’s 35 mind.
  8. Did anyone who’s listened to the gaffers interview think he was a bit of a dick to the interviewer when asked about Varian going off at half time? Just on Varian, what a half he had last night. I’ve been a huge critic of him but my god he didn’t half lead the line! He bullied Stokes from the start and had a perfectly good goal chalked off.
  9. I assumed Varian was knackered given it’s his first start for a while. Bene got MOTM, I thought he played well but what a class act Stanton is. I can’t wait to get Spencer in beside him.
  10. I think we need to get away from the whole ‘I don’t want to contribute to DGW’s wages’ stuff. The reality is that if you’ve put any sort of money into the clubs coffers in the last year then you probably will have contributed to his wages in some way, like it or not. Continuing to go to games and put your hand in your pocket will only help to strengthen the club once we get out of this mess. The alternative is far worse.
  11. I was at Windmill yesterday and there was a Raith girls u18 team playing in Raith shirts. I assume it was only one of the ladies teams that jumped ship and not all of them.
  12. See if you ever manage to get an answer on this, could you let us know please?
  13. And presumably have experience in running a decent sized business. Like you said, these sorts don’t exactly grown on trees. One of the most annoying things about this whole episode is that the current board have done wonders through very difficult times recently in growing the club and running things very well. One stupid decision has brought the house down.
  14. Perhaps TAG asked to have their name removed immediately. We can’t get new strips so we had to cover them up with a patch?
  15. Pretty disappointed at this. I’m not saying Mcglynn doesn’t have questions to answer however the first person in front of the cameras should have been Sim. Perhaps it’s indicative of his leadership that he’s throwing someone else in front of the bus.
  16. You should probably be wearing black for a few week too by the sounds of thihgs.
  17. My point is that now Val has led the campaign to get rid of David Goodwillie… rightly so in my book, she’s now going off on how all footballers need to be whiter than white. That’s a step too far for me and an indication of what happens when certain people have their ego inflated. The example I used was Marvin Andrews, a club legend and a hall of famer. He’s publicly come out a few years ago with strong views on homosexuals. We also have our own club captain who was charged a few years ago with assaulting his ex gf and a couple of her friends. Our old captain was charged a few years back for bottling someone in a nightclub. Now the issue with her calling on fit and proper people checks means where do you draw the line? Rapists 100% but what about assault charges etc? What about people with questionable views on homosexuality? You run the risk of tarnishing players who have played a massive part in our recent history if you start going down that road.
  18. I’m not, no. I think you’re missing the point somewhat.
  19. Just on Val. She’s now holding court telling the nations journalists that all footballers should pass a fit and proper persons test. The more I think about it, I’m actually glad she’s no longer involved. Imagine what she would have been saying about Marvin Andrews! https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/ex-rangers-star-marvin-andrews-slammed-4555527.amp
  20. Change can’t come from within the club without others being able and willing to step in. The whole board can’t walk away and leave no one funding and running the club. A few folk don’t seem to realise this. Val is someone who has both the finances and the experience needed to help run the club. She’s made plenty of comments about how she loves the club, but is she going to be proactive in trying to turn it around? The same could be said of Gordon Brown. Has money, contacts and very good business sense. These people have no obligation to help, but I find their supposed love of the club rather questionable when we are struggling and they are sitting on the sidelines watching.
  21. Is Val even interested in returning? For someone who was instrumental in speaking out, and part of me thinks of it wasn’t for her and her connections, this might have been another ‘Clyde scenario’ where it would’ve died down, I think she’s happy to walk away with her reputation bolstered along with her book sales. I’d love to be wrong but I certainly don’t see her as actively vocal about trying to fix the issues.
  22. I’ve heard Mr Sim has started to respond to a few fans who have emailed the club/him directly. He’s apologising for his lack of judgment and admits that him living abroad means he’s out of touch with what’s going on. He’s also said that him being the chairman while being far removed from the day to day running of the club isn’t the way forward.
