The New Raith Rovers Thread

Yeah some seemed to enjoy his no nonsense style of defending which quickly descended into just nonsense.

Il miss Murray he was a good player to have around and although signed as a centre half played most of his games solidly at left back. Like Renton I'm surprised we got cash for him but gladly take it.

Bit of a lack of respect for Iain Davidson. How many games has he played for Raith, over how many years? 

You'd better hope he's not looking in...

He's closing in on 450 games and if he signs again, will be 13? i think. I don't think he can start every game now, but he'd be good as cover and for the odd game here and there. He's not as bad as folk here make you believe.

He saved you guys from a severe doing at Palmerston in the play-offs...

f**k it, Davo's in with the bricks. Despite some high profile mistakes he probably had a better season overall than Benedictus last year.

Find the chat about Davo embarrassing. Over 400 apps for the club and played at the highest level in Scotland.

On his game he’s the best centre half at the club as he showed away at QOTS.

Raith fans love hating a local boy, remember the same goats booing Stevie Tosh.

If true very poor should be freeing up his wage. Poor attitude, a liability sick of seeing his awful punts to nobody.  His best years are way behind him.

He's always been a McGlynn favourite so it's no surprise. Still a total waste of resources though, part time or not.

One for the older fans but has there ever been another player rack up the years of service and appearances that Davo has but still split opinion amongst the fans?

I wouldn’t like him to be first choice next year but he is still a solid defender on his day. He has plenty of experience. People go on about his attitude being shocking but we all agree that McGlynn is the ultimate professional. Do you think McGlynn would think so highly of him if his attitude was a problem?

He’s been a great servant to the club and has been a key player for 6 different managers and his only spell away was with a team a level above us. I think his best days are behind him but he’s been a good player for us. As far as experienced part time back up goes, I struggle to think of anyone better we could have got.

Ronnie Coyle used to get battered by the supporters something awful.

Remember (as above) Stevie Tosh taking a lot of stick. Davo has his faults but professionalism isn’t one of them.

If he's away, maybe we can get Super Hans in, miss him.

The amount of avoidable and pointless yellow cards he continues to pick up despite his age is very unprofessional. 

I have no doubt he trains well however, which is favourable to managers and particularly those on the McGlynn mould.

Only Rovers fans could say they were ok with their best defender leaving to their rivals whilst re-signing a calamity who gave away countless goals last season.

We should be bracing ourselves for a defence of McKay, Davidson, Bene and MacDonald. Also I know Davidson was keen for a testimonial last year so I wouldn't be surprised to see that announcement very soon.

Happy for Davidson to be around the squad, and he still has some performances in there. Need to be looking at alternatives though. 

Had a better season than Bene.
