The New Raith Rovers Thread


Recommended Posts

Was at a fun day at michael woods centre today so thought id take in some rovers training, The boys are training hard but enjoying it. The banter was definatly their today aswell, mckinnon constantly encouraging them, wanting the ball on the deck, constantly drumming into them to "use your team mates" " find the spaces"

Mcgurn was their today but still no anderson or barr so they two are allready a week behind,

A no alcohol ban for pre season has been put in place by mckinnon, spoke with a couple of the players all saying the same thing, "loving te tempo of pre season so far" "some of the boys the gaffers brought in are real class"

Craigen, wighton, petrie are very comfortable on the ball, exeptional skill and techniques, great range of passes and know where the goal is,

And this aaron birch from west brom, if he is as keen on signing as people say then he needs offered a deal right away! What a class act,! Has one hell of a thunderous strike on him.

Anyways, lets all forget about all the nonsense thats turning negative, as from what insaw today that team is full of spirit and raring to go.

Oh and a final thought, mckinnon had a wee 20 minute walk arround the pitch when he sent the team in for a swim, taking notes, almost like he was picturing situations in his head.

Remember our last game at home to Brechin?

That was the game I truly believed the league was ours. 75 minutes in and you just had a feeling Sloan was going to do something special. A truly fantastic set piece from the guy. It'd be fantastic to see and hear Starks at such levels again. The atmosphere in those final 9 games were brilliant. Brechin away was phenomenal during that run. We went there knowing it was a ground we always struggled at and we absolutely tanked them. One of the most one sided games we had that season.

Enjoyed that away game! Respect to Craig Nelson, took some amount of stick but seen the fun in it and gave a little back at the end! 4 nil was it?

Funny how he knew about Craigen. Funny how another perfectly reliable poster has said he's heard something not dissimilar.

Just had a look at Fantalk to see if there was anything of note on there about Grant Anderson

What I did notice were the tone of posts from Author Unknown.....your posts and opinions sound very much like Authur Unknown even to the phrasing used!! 8)

Just sayin', likes................ :whistle

After watching the Rovers for more than 50 years I thought it was time I made some comment. I have followed them everywhere, even took my holidays to watch them in a tournament up north with St Mirren. Think it was called Chivas Regal or something. I will support them through everything although these past two years has been fairly hard. Ray McKinnon looks as though he is the manager we have needed since Jimmy Nicoll left the first time. Please give the man time and stop trying to second guess him. As much as I admire Dave mcGurn he is only one player in the team. Eveybody should be pulling together and supporting the team, not trying to have players transferred that as far as you know will probably be part of his plans. Lets just get on and offer our best support in the up coming season which looks as though, with the signings, could be a really good one. Here's hoping

It's possible to support the team and the new manager but still be pissed off at the potential loss or non-inclusion of two of our best players.

Thats the whole point andy. Their is no news from the club on Anderson or McGurn, so as things stand they are rovers players. End of story until or if the club makes an announcement.

Why would the club make an announcement? They're both contracted players, they'll be Rovers players regardless. Whether they get played though is the concern and that decision is down to McKinnon.
