  1. Rovers v Ayr - worst sides in the league

    Raith Rovers 16/17 - A tale of 4 'keepers.
  2. The Champions vs The Buddies

    Thinking about betting on St Mirren and Ayr winning today to guarantee our survival.
  3. Out of the mouth of babes...

    Just managed to get the wife to put subtitles on so I could see what BB8 was saying.
  4. Rovers v Ayr - worst sides in the league

    Deal! Seriously though, a couple of early Ayr goals is the nightmare scenario. On the other hand, a couple of early Rovers goals filtering through to Easter Road wouldn't be bad.
  5. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    The difference between Jason Thomson being labelled a 'keep' instead of a 'let go' was his driving runs from his RB position. Opposition on the back foot and pressure taken off the team. If he has been told to hold back and is simply following instructions then fair enough, hold on to him. If his ability to make these runs has dissipated then I'm afraid I'd be hoping for another first choice RB to start the new season.
  6. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    We may well have seen a couple against Ayr if we managed an unlikely win yesterday. No chance of that now after the senior players were unceremoniously pumped.
  7. Rovers v Ayr - worst sides in the league

    The Rovers will do that to you. McGlynn had an afro before he came here and M'Voto is only 15 years old.
  8. The Relegation Battle

    I think St Mirren will draw at worst next week and if we claw back a 9 goal deficit on Dumbarton I'll curl oot a Mr Whippy on the centre circle, season it and savour every last morsel with a fork and knife. I can't wait for this shitfest of a season to finish but it looks as though our agony will be prolonged with the playoffs. RRFC: Promotion playoffs to relegation candidates in the course of a season.
  9. Famous people who have fallen out with you

    Gordon Dalziel was raging with me when I published an edited interview (potential defamation case) with him before he could see the changes. I explained to him on the phone that I was naive to such protocols what with not being an actual journalist and he was fine about it. I've to buy him a pint next time I see him. On the other side of the coin, Idlewild annoyed me when they had tea and biscuits backstage instead of enough free drugs to kill Charlie Sheen.
  10. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I understand why folk are pissed off at the goals we concede from free kicks but the 'keeper is always going to gamble on his wall having an impact or the taker not being very accurate. Personally, I think we've been unlucky. The likes of Cuthbert and McGurn wouldn't blindly follow the goalkeeping coach if they didn't think something was quite right.
  11. Hibs v Raith

    I can confirm that it was indeed an absolute shiter, James. The end of season awards night is going to be a blast.
  12. Reasons to be Cheerful

    To be fair, if Marge and Homer weren't in there having sex my ball would have gone right through.
  13. Reasons to be Cheerful

    Beat my personal best golf score today and had two birdies into the bargain. First round I've ever had without a 7 or higher!
  14. Hibs v Raith

    Rovers to win both halves at 66/1...
  15. Hibs v Raith

    It'd be quite fitting with this strange season if we won this and could say that we got the better of the champions over the four games. Do we want to see hungry Hibs fringe players coming in or do we want potential holiday mode first teamers playing?
  16. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    The past couple of seasons have shown that (outwith the OF) our home support doesn't need to be buying tickets. Folk simply can't be arsed with that carry on. They want to walk up, pay in and watch a game, not f**k about buying tickets in the days leading up to the game or queue up at the office window on match day.
  17. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Just under £13 on the super early bird and just under £14 on the early bird for league games seems reasonable whatever league we end up in. Take into account the cup games and friendlies and it turns into a very reasonable offer.
  18. The Relegation Battle

    The lowest St Mirren will finish is 9th and they will absolutely pish the playoffs.
  19. The Relegation Battle

    I reckon P475 is a facepainter and was due about £40. The big Pars saving hero that he is.
  20. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    We've got previous for relegating Ayr or at least firing a few nails in their coffin do we not? I'm at work so I'll have a wee look when I get home.
  21. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Anybody needing their office painted?
  22. Rovers v Morton

    Skacel more than justified his selection. Didnt do much, if anything wrong. Great desire shown by the team today. If we could mirror our home form under Hughes when we play away that'd be grand.
  23. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Poor creditor fucking Pars, absolutely desperate to pass that horrible reputation on to their wholesome superiors. Sad.
  24. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I know that hiring Locke will be at the top of most folk's shitlist this season but what annoys me more was the loaning of Vaughan to Dumbarton to acquire a past it Stevenson and giving Bates to Rangers to ease the way for Hardie's return. Much as I like Hardie, I'd much rather we kept a hold of our own young, promising player. Easier said than done but you'd like to see a bit of a fight from the club. The Vaughan situation is an utter farce. Loaning yet another promising young player, arguably the best striker we have at the club to one of our direct rivals and seeing him score goals for them to put/keep them above us really fucking pisses me off. His uber-tattooed replacement bumping us shortly after his neebur got punted was the razor blade ridden water chute. I appreciate that none of this would probably have happened if Locke wasn't appointed but these are the things I think about when considering what a joke of a season this has been. Utter shambles.
  25. Fife Derby

    Beautiful day for it. This is the day that it all comes together. Fluent passing movements, players breezing past their opponents like they aren't even there, accurate attempts on goal culminating in an emphatic 0-5 score line. Do drugs kids.
