  1. Rovers v Dumbo

    Of course, had forgotten.
  2. Rovers v Dumbo

    Apparently McGlynn wasn’t even there today. On Raith TV the interviewer said to Paul Smith “stepping in on the touch line for John today”. Anyone know what happened? Was he just ill or something?
  3. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Random question... ...can anyone remember that retro, old video game style video Raith TV did once? It was like N64 style and was going through the goals scored at the start of the season. Anybody got a link? Can't for the life of me remember if it was this season or previous.
  4. The Rovers v The Sons

    Indeed. I sometimes wonder why we don't just keep our forwards...well...forward, while defending corners at our end. Unless they're absolutely phenomenal at heading the ball, I'd rather have strikers up the park - therefore keeping another Dumbarton player further back to mark him.
  5. CLYDE FC season 16/17 Thread

    Perry was bad, well, very bad, when he played for Rovers. Admittedly, might perform a lot better two divisions below, but I wouldn't be too hopeful. Will be interested to see how he gets on.
  6. Linlithgow Rose v Raith Rovers

    He went down easily, but my main problem with the decision was that the ball was out of play, or at least heading out of play, when Stewart was brought down. Having said that, the defender should have realised this and in the end, left himself vulnerable for conceding a penalty by making the challenge. Not a penalty for me.

    x2. Absolutely brutal.

    Sorry to totally verge off topic, but how on earth is Craig Wilson playing for Ballingry Rovers these days? I would never have thought he'd be any lower than the top of of League One at the age of 27. He wasn't spectacular, but he was a solid defender and comfortable on the ball going forward. Does anybody have the faintest what happened to him?
  9. Can't believe all the negativity to this. I used to spend the first 10-15 minutes of a match trying to work out who was who on the opposition team and remember their names. This will make things so much better and enjoyable. I'll be able to watch the football rather than the teamsheet for the opening periods of matches now. Ice hockey teams in Scotland have had names on the back of jersey for years and years and there's never been any fuss about the cost of it before. Edinburgh Capitals, for example, will struggle to get above 500 fans during midweek matches and 900 on weekends, yet there's not even a mention of the cost of printing names. People will sponsor the players and win their shirt at the end of the season, just as normal. This isn't going to cause clubs to go out of business for goodness sake.

    Really like the look of the home kit from the official site, although I thought it looked a bit cheap on Matt Elder's tweet. Hard to tell until you see it in the flesh I suppose. Hadn't noticed the collar until someone pointed it out, not sure I like it. But a big thumbs up from me, overall. I know there have been calls for bringing backs the hoops over the last decade or so, but it feels like the club have really pulled off a bit of surprise with this one, so well done them.

    On the post about new season ticket prices and the walk-up price next season, the official website says that this season "unfortunately last season’s free offer for primary school children was the subject of an unacceptable level of abuse, and has had to be discontinued". Anyone able to shed any light on how exactly people abused this feature? I didn't realise they got in for free, was it season tickets or free for paying at the gate? I hope it's not the case that the turnstile operators didn't bother to i.d. kids who claimed to be of primary school age or something, because that clearly could be tightened up if the case.

    Looks like Ayr's left back Eddie Malone has signed for Rovers. Decent enough, no better or worse than Dyer.
  13. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I'm also quite surprised at how disappointed I am at the news too. I'm not keen on his tendency for the hoofball option, but he was a solid defender at this level, which was proved especially last season in our title challenge. I'm worried that there's not many left backs out there in our budget range that are any better than him.
  14. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    If that was you, good job. Summed up the situation perfectly.

    John Baird's brother has claimed on his Twitter account that Rovers have knocked back a couple of bids for John. Doesn't say when they were knocked back, but he only tweeted it in the last hour or so, so I presume he means today.
