Get the "regionalised" draw, tinpot name and the entire shitty tournament to f**k. 

The owner of this company backed Better Together in 2014 and got knighted for it. I'll never eat another Cuntocks Caramel Wafer in my life.

Tory fuckin b*****d.

ETA And I won't be going to any games in this competition.

Can't say the owner's political views are any of my concern tbh. They could've just called it the "Tunnock's Challenge Cup" and it would've been fine. 

But the "Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup"? Fucking hell. It just sounds unbelievably small time. Betfred calling the League Cup the "Betfred Fixed Odds Betting Terminal League Cup" or some nonsense. Utterly dismal. 

Then again, the cup has been arsed around with that much that the name sort of befits it. It'll lose us money and, knowing our recent history, probably our first choice goalkeeper to a season-long injury as well. Get it to f**k.

Great attitude, pal! Do the club you support out of money by boycotting games because somebody who owns a company who sponsors a cup has a different political option to you. Numpty.

Dunno why they picked the Caramel Wafer as the sponsor. The Teacake is far superior...

Fraserburgh or Ross County Colts. Away. f**k off.


On a Tuesday /Wednesday night as well, followed by a trip to Stranraer on Saturday 17th August, bet the players are looking forward to that as much as the fans.

Didn't he bring us a few players during the very late 90s/very early 00s? 

Think we got the square root of f**k all for Nacho Novo, as it was alleged that his agent subsidised his wages at Raith and was reimbursed with the subsequent transfer fee from Dundee.

Totally agree, it appears that certain fans will never be happy. It appears this season McGlynn is going with height and strength. Tippy tappy push hasn't worked so I've no issues with us bullying teams. Reserve judgement on players until the season is underway and we have Vaughan and Dingwall fit along with a loan player or two plus, Hendry, Spencer and Bene. Plus I believe we are very close to signing a striker. 

This is mostly what I’ve been saying for the last 2 seasons.

3rd tier football in this country no team will ever cut it with a team full of Vaughan’s, Buchanan’s, Hendries or Even Armstrong’s and definitely not with guys like Flanagan. What you need is big guys who have enough technical ability to get by and plenty of guts and brute strength.

Releasing Flanagan and even losing Murray to replace them with taller and (hopefully) more robust alternatives is imo exactly what is needed to get us out of this league.

Nandos showreel undoubtably shows his best bits and any howlers have been edited out but what player at 1st or Championship couldn’t have much similar video evidence ?  From what’s been said and seen he wins everything in the air and likes a tackle which will be an upgrade on Murray who backed off attackers far too often for my liking.

Now John, please just sign a monster of a centre forward of similar stature and we’ re sorted.

I was a great fan of Murray's but aye, that infuriated the piss out of me.

Tunnocks cup?
Last season I'd doubt the club broke even from the games played. This season we start with a game where travelling costs will likely outstrip gate revenue. Fans aren't impressed and gates will show that so the trend is likely to continue. Add to this the chance of injury (remember that Aberdeen colts crocked 2 Raith men last season) to a reduced squad and I cannot think of any reason to want to progress in the comp.

As with last season and the season before, field as many youths/fringe players as possible and get papped out asap. 

We won the Challenge Cup in one of the handful of years it was relevant.

How did Lyness perform last season for you guys? 

We've resigned him on a 2 year deal. He was really unlucky to be cut loose last season as we couldn't get rid of Danny Rodgers who then got injured. So by time we needed another goalie, he was already with you guys.

Thanks so much for your thoughts. The fact remains that he said that he would relocate his company to England in the event of Scottish independence. That threat presumably still stands. Some things are more important than the support of a football team. Cheers.
