The New Raith Rovers Thread

Wouldn’t be surprised if Dave McKay signs a new contract now Murray is away.
Was maybe hedging his bets trying to decide if he was likely to get a game and that will definitely have bumped him up the pecking order.

That’ll be Miller then you’d expect? He can play Centre back, right back and midfield so that’s positive. If I remember correctly the Dumbarton fans really rated him as a centre back. On a more negative note that was five years ago and I don’t think fans of any of his teams since have rated him.

Hopefully one of those resigning is McKay. Don’t really know who I’d prefer the other one to be out of Davidson or Lyness. Assuming those are the only 3 left to resign? Sure Bill Clark mentioned something about an offer being made to Gillespie? But seems to be confirmed everywhere he was on a 2 year deal?

Gillespie is a weird one. Clark definitely said an offer was on the table for him, but at the same time you have to assume he was the player he was referring to when he mentioned one of our players going to Airdrie, and the only way we could get a fee for him in that instance would be if he was under contract already.

Does Gillespie perhaps have some sort of break clause in his contract? Either that or the reports were wrong. 

Something doesn't add up here.

If this player today is a midfielder then there is the potential of Gillespie , Matthews, Hendry, Spencer, wide players , dingwall Victoria and Anderson. I really hope we are not playing in league 1 by flooding the midfield.

Yeah I thought that too. Would seem unlikely but is it possible he is thinking of going part time? That would explain why we have made him an offer even though he has a contract and why Airdrie would still be due us some sort of fee to sign him?

If we are signing another midfielder as said above, assuming we are going with 2 in central midfield, you’d think that suggests Gillespie is away. Matthews, Hendry, Spencer, Miller? and Gillespie seems too many for 2 places.

Imagine if we went a 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 would be reasonably attacking while at the same time allowing us the extra midfielder.

My guess with the Gillespie one is that we were looking to swap him for McDonald and that would cover the fee we were due. With us selling Murray and Nisbet, you wonder if Mcglynn will look to keep hold of him now and use some of that cash to cover the fee?

I wonder if Mcglynn sees him as a right back next season?

Yes. 

What's your fixation with the 200 club anyway? 

We've never had to ban anyone YET so please join.

Frankie boy we can make you immortal.

Now on the subject of players.

Don't know who's coming or going but I would think:

Gillespie will go to Airdrie as hinted by Bill Clark (under contract unlike big Nat), 

McKay and Davo will sign with Davo used as cover and assisting in a coaching role.

Not a clue who is coming in but this guy Miller/McGuiver is looking plausible.

A midfielder who can also play defence, you say? Announce... DAVO!
