The New Raith Rovers Thread

Recommended Posts

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.

Apples and oranges, we played Murray first and foremost (Hiya Grant! hiya pal!) as a full back. So him going, and Davo hanging on as a PT player is not a situation that requires an unflattering comparison. Given some additional training I don't think I'd mind McKay as a right back if it came to it. Would prefer him as first choice CB alongside Bene. With Davo part time that maybe offers us an opportunity to bring in two more defenders - a full back and a centre back which would leave us well balanced and capable of absorbing an injury or two - especially if Miller comes in and can play full back as well.

Who was top scorer in McKinnon's season, Hardie? Stewart? Definitely spread the goals around that season. 

Hardie would have a field day in this league. If only eh!

Agree with this. Really think this a big season for Dave McKay too if he re-signs. He needs to establish himself as our first choice this season. Centre back options of McKay, Bene, Davo and one other (probably McGeever) look okay if McKay can develop into a key player for us. Big if though.

Not really desperation. Just find it funny that your best players turn to ratshit the moment they leave. Every. Single. Time.
We got a decent fee for Jacko and are redistributing it down the leagues. You should be grateful.

Don’t sign them then. More likely the DDCB’s prised the rent out the local Hebrews. I wonder what other company will suffer the consequences of a failed payment. I beg your club to spend spend spend. I double dare you.

I have a feeling Davidson won't be screaming at McGurn for his own mistakes as much as he did Thomson.

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...
 

I couldn’t care less if he reads these threads. He knows he’s finished and the fans do too

If you are a grown man or woman and are actually pissed off at a couple of our players going to the Pars then you need to have a good hard look at yourself.

We lost £400k last year. We're hardly in a position to point and laugh at other teams spending.

Also you're a welt.

In fairness, I'd have punted Bene as well were it not for the fact he was under contract and we'd need to pay him off. 

He and Davidson simply cannot be our first choice CB partnership next season.

I'm delighted with the £40k for Muza, he'll soon have the barcodes screaming abuse at him as he backpeddles off attackers allowing them time to set their sights (easily his biggest fault). Yes I'd have been ok with him staying but I'd far rather have McKay and that £40k.

Can't see what the problem with Davo is, even if he has the occasional howler/red must moment he will be nothing more than a filler-in. The number of times in the run in that JMcG said that Davo couldnt train until the Thursday means the gaffer will know better than anyone here just what his limitations are, don't sweat it.

Exactly. McKay is way more valuable to Raith Rovers than Murray ever will.
