1:1 Starks

0:2 Gayfield

0:1 Starks

2:2 Gayfield (after the league was won)

1st place in the league vs 3rd in the league. Why should I be bitter?

Best of luck at Palmerston on Saturday. Are you going?

Yes I am me and my son

Bit presumptuous with a second leg still to play, and enough european exploits to show a first leg lead means nothing, but..... if Raith don't go up does the board keep McGlynn?

They stood by Smith when he didn't get up, but the pressure on a flying start then ramps up on McGlynn for next season, in what will be arguably a much tougher league.   

We can't afford to punt another management team with a years contract left.

And if we did who the fech would be stupid enough to want to come in and do the job. Firing managers like confetti. If I was an up and coming manager I wouldn't touch us with a barge pole.

If we go part time which is not beyond the realms of possibility theres no justification on having a full time manager.Beyond that we cant afford to sack him

Suspect all but Flanagan will be gone in the summer, and only because he's got another year on his contract and won't get a better offer. Buchanan is apparently a high earner as well. 

Wouldn't be surprised by the Buchanan bit. He was proven at this level with Livingston not long ago so I can understand he will have been negotiating at the time from somewhat of a position of power, but a striker aging from 24 to 26 is not the same as 31/32 to 34. He's done at this level, both in terms of age/ability and he can probably get a decent wage in the juniors/LL given the cash being chucked about. You can do better.

Buchanan has scored something like 13 goals in 26 games and i,m sure theres plenty teams in this league that would love that return from one of their players

That was a Pine gesture by the club, he definitely left the Rovers in the Larch though.

The issue is that it will never come out why he left. Could he have been given extra money to bring in a defender or similar , we will never know, and I could not trust the board to give an explanation as to why he left.

So basically, we won't get good full timers because everyone in the championship and Falkirk will snap them up, and we won't get good part timers because of everyone else...

Pay off the players, Sack McGlynn, Sack the Board, burn Stark’s Park to the ground. Salt said ground. 

Do I get a refund on my season ticket?

To hell with a refund, burn the ticket then salt the ground on which lies the ashes.

I’d still rather have him than that burst couch in a flat cap who Arbroath have as their manager. It’ll be hilarious seeing how he gets on next season.

Thanks for your input,  but you are talking pish,  the seaside league sounds great initially,  a few away days somewhere different, teams you haven't met for a while..   The long and short of it is , it is bloody hard to get out off as rait h are finding out,  the football from most sides is mind numbingly boring and you get skinned 16notes for the privilege...  Therein lies the problem,   A couple of years back the Raith stand behind the g o a l would have been nearly full.   Tonight probably about a th ir d full,   Next year probably le ss again same as ourselves,   Death by a thousand cuts scenario,  depressing yes,   Factual He ll yes..

 

 

good luck at Palmerston by the way. 

Raith Stand behind the goal holds 3300. It’s only been full a handful of times.

No he doesn’t.

To be fair, it probably won’t be hilarious either.
