The New Raith Rovers Thread

Please take Brad McKay. He's an 'excellent' young defender with all the tools required to be a 'top, top' player.

 

I second this. Would be a tremendous piece of business by Locke.

It's nice to know that fans of other clubs are ripping the piss. Cheers Rovers.

It's really hard for me to put into words just how fucking angry I am at this. I get behind the board in EVERYTHING they do. Gave Murray the job, gave him a longer contract, helped him out by bringing Malpas in instead of just jacking him when everyone was calling for his head - fine, all fine. I really try my best to think of us a progressive club who give people a chance when others won't but what the actual f**k are we doing appointing this c**t?

Eric is on here and in the paper as good as begging more folk to come along and support the club and we appoint Locke, a man with the tack record of an imbecile, who lists his fucking primary school and beating Hibs once on his ACTUAL PROFESSIONAL AND PUBLIC CV. The man is a fucking joke.

Is this a "f**k you" to the fans because we didn't show up in greater numbers last year? A sort of, "well this is the level of manager you can expect if you don't come and support us"? Genuinely, and I mean this, if he appoints Lee McCulloch or Billy Brown into his backroom, I'll no be back until they're away. We're a fucking laughing stock AGAIN. well done Rovers, top fucking job.

At least a break away from football will give you time to continue trying to take over the world Mr Scorpio :)

That's about the size of it for me

I'm genuinely embarrassed reading this. A ball hasn't even been kicked or a signing made and Locke has been torn to shreds from our own fans. Talk about an over reaction.

This.

 

Maybe the BOD should resign the club folds and were all done with this nonsense. Give the man a chance before you tear him to pieces and dont listen to the trolls on here who are mainly winding you rovers fans up and enjoying it.

Gary Locke.  :lol:

 

We won't appoint Gary Locke. McBookie are floundering about in the dark, like the rest of us. They change the odds based on an a couple of bets here and there.

 

 

Do you seriously think our board are that bad? It's not going to be Gary Locke ffs :lol:

The over-reaction by some of the Raith fans on here is laughable.

 

Nothing like giving someone a chance eh?

 

Also, the notion that the board would deliberately appoint a sub-standard manager as some sort of "GIRUY" gesture to stay-away fans is ridiculous.

 

Do you really think the BOD consult P&B over who to appoint?

 

This is like .net at its worst.

26% win rate with both Hearts and Killie while having budgets which larger than the teams above them. Relegated the former, the latter on the verge. Both sets of their fans recognise that he's been a significant factor. He's a track record of playing players out of football and playing poor football. We're not expecting total football. Obviously, we're never going to be the best in the league, let alone in Scotland. But we can do better than a manager who has nothing to offer our club. 

 

The club have set out in the past that they want to play attractive football and get the crowds back to Starks. There are various managers like Aitken and Young who are up and coming and done well using smaller budgets to develop teams up to a higher stature. Does anyone realistically thing this is going to end well? People can sit and think about "Well we've not even kicked a ball yet" but then that's missing the point. Each season, we should give ourselves the best chance to a)keep ourselves in the league. b) build on that and finish as high as possible.By getting Locke in, over the alternatives then we're giving the job to has one resounding characteristic (other than going to primary school and 1-0 wins over Hibs) and that is being a failure. 

 

What's the point if we're setting up for that?

He's being torn to shreds because his managerial record and style of football are appalling. Can you give any positive qualities he has other than "gee him a chance"?

 

It's about taking the club forward and board are failing in this regard. Other names had plus points and negatives and fans for and in favour but just look at the reaction here. Not one person has come on here and said great or even good appointment.

Yes, the glowing references from fans of Hearts and Kilmarnock, as well as indications of jealousy from Scottish football fans as a whole, definitely mark out our reaction as the incorrect one.

How many thought McKinnon was a decent appointment last season truthfully? Never set the heather alight at Brechin to be fair. Wait until a ball is kicked before jumping to conclusions. Grown men shedding tears over the appointment of a manager that wasn't their first choice, pathetic.

People defending him are trying to mitigate the shitness, rather than prove how good he is.

Given that a club like Rovers would normally get around 70 genuine applications ( as Dunfermline, St Mirren etc ) it seems a strange appointment. Maybe working for peanuts. Just might get you out of this league. Not in a good way though.
