In the midst of this what’s Kris Doolan up too, understand he’s the wrong side of 30 but still an excellent first touch. Anyone know what offers he’s had?

He reportedly declined a move to Airdrie because he doesn't want to play in League One.

All joking aside what can Nisbet offer? I haven't seen any footage of him. Who's he similar to?

I think a bit of seethe losing a 30 goal striker to your local rivals is perfectly acceptable.

Nah, he deserves his shot at a higher league. Like all strikers it's a gamble but a good one for both the Pars and Nisbet, if he chokes here it's probably part time from there on in, but he wasn't going to get anything else out of another season with us. The actual destination is irrelevant, the fact that he's not in this league next year is far more important from our point of view.

If we're gonna be a club worth following it's got to be because we'll take guys on, build their skills and their confidence. If we don't get all of that back in terms of seasons played, then thanks for everything and we go again and find someone else.

McGlynn has an ok record with bringing in forwards,  after his first 18 months in the job anyway. Happy to see how this goes.

All of his goals are on YouTube. Search RaithTv and you’ll find it.

Disappointed to see both Nisbet, and Murray go. But not surprised. I’m glad they went to the Pars in the division above than Falkirk. 

Theyve both signed 2 year deals, so we’ll see them next season one way or another....

There's a video compilation of all his goals for us kicking about which is a good starting point. He scored all manner of goals for us, from tap ins from rebounds through to direct free kicks from 25 yards.

Bit of a sore one that him and Murray are heading to the Pars but in all honesty I'd rather that than they sign for the likes of Falkirk.

Good luck to them both , except against us obviously.

There is a 2 and a half minute video of all his goals for us on Youtube which you can find with little difficulty.

Strong guy, can generate good power on his headers from a standing start, likes to stay central, pacy but not lightening quick, scored all kinds of goals. Once he was in the habit it just clicked for him.

Mbappe.

 

He's a goalscorer who's, good at linking up play and will hassle defenders. He didn't assist much for us but when your scoring goals that's fine.

 

Eta there's apparently a video on YouTube of his goals for us...

How anyone could be seething about a transfer that we knew was happening is beyond me. Good signing for the pars but looking at our own squad, there seems to be more balance to it. Still need a rb, cb and 1/2 strikers though. With Anderson and macdonald signing I could see us playing 352 more often aswell.

I agree, I think the midfield looks stronger now that it did at the end of the season, selling these players on when we can makes perfect business sense specially when they have made it clear they want to move on to better there career. I don’t see the internet going on meltdown when we decide to change our employers for better money/job. Yeah Nizzy’s goals will be missed but we need more than 1 player scoring goals. I trust McGlynn and the board to get it right and it’s about time the keyboard warriors got behind the team and stop their moaning

Sad to see Nisbet and Murray go, but no need to panic yet...

They just sold a player whose transfer fee will cover anything they are due to us to be fair.
