I think the negative comments are to do with the interviewer being a volunteer.

Storm in a teacup. I’d expect McGlynn to say sorry when he sees the interviewer again.

I’d be more worried if he wasn’t raging after losing two late goals to lose the game.

It's the same with DeeTV, we've had Alex Rae, Jocky Scott, Barry Smith, John Brown, Paul Hartley, Neil McCann, Jim McIntyre & James McPake all have worse moments than that nothing episode and no-one has batted an eyelid. You either expect raw honesty (And with that comes the occasional snide comment which isn't intended) or you get benign, boring same old, same old.

Its really not difficult to display raw honesty without being a total dick to someome. Especially someone who had travelled to Dingwall and Stranraer in the space of a few days, to provide the fans with this service.

You’re aware that not every human being has the same character traits as you?

Also, what is raw honesty?

McGlynn makes a tit of him self and some r saying don't post the interview in full ? 

So after someone was an utter dick to you, the guys at RaithTV should waste more time making him look good!? The interview would have been pointless if that was the case.

Manager is in the wrong here not the folks at RaithTV all credit to them and thanks for what you all do for us and the club we're lucky to have them!!!

McGlynn should be coming out and say sorry, if any player did it he would make them come out and apologise for having a reekin attitude. 

Folk are saying that as it's an official club video, on the official club website, making the manager of the club look like a bit of a dick. It's not great for the club and at the end of the day, it certainly isn't going to do anything to get anyone back on side with the manager.

Mcglynn has shown plenty times, over both his tenures, the ability to be angry over a result yet not speak to folk like shit.

I hope this is a piss take from the previous post about the Sturgeon interview...


Shame Niall was away. They’re usually Better Together when he’s helping out.

Looking at this from another angle, I don't see why McGlynn should be able to act like a dick and then it's just edited out as if it didn't happen. 

It's unprofessional and is hopefully the last time we're discussing this. McGlynn being embarrassed about this and not doing it again would be a good outcome.

John Hughes esque stuff from McGlynn. He sounds like a man who's under serious pressure and I'm quite surprised there aren't more Raith fans calling for his head.

I can't help but feel he's dining off of previous success at Raith. A win rate of 45% in League 1 for a (mostly) full-time side is pretty poor. For context, Barry Smith's was 55%...

Behave yourself. It’s nothing like Hughes’s meltdown. We are second in the league after 3 games. Exactly where we realistically hope to be come the end of the season.

What rubbish. We've played three of the worst teams in the league. Wait until the likes of East Fife, Forfar and Falkirk get a shot at us. We will be lucky to even make the play offs with McGlynn in charge.

As for the interview, the questions asked were exactly what any reasonable interviewer should ask and make a change from the hopeless fluff put out by the FFP each week. If McGlynn can't handle that he should do us all a favour and find another job.

I mean it can't be directly compared to the John Hughes slaughtering of players mid relegation battle, but it's Hughes esque in the sense he's completely lost the plot and sounds like a man under very serious pressure.

He also comes across as a complete arsehole. Another John Hughes trait.

Yer man McGlynn is struggling big time, and that interview confirms it. His away record is absolute honky tonk.

He certainly got off lightly last season, that's for sure. Probably for that exact reason. 

He has nowhere to hide this time around.

I don't recall John Hughes ever belittling an interviewer...

Why would you expect more fans to be calling for his head when we are 2nd place?

To be fair he failed last season. He took us over early enough to make a difference. He was given funds to strengthen the squad, he continued playing the same players week in week out and is doing the same this season. He has his favourites and never drops them. I didn't want him to return and have stated previously we needed to go for someone like Barry Robson. Also with such a tight budget can we really afford two none playing people in the management team. Perhaps one should be a player manager similar to John Baird last season at Forfar.

Pretty incredible some people are defending McGlynn and having a pop at the interviewer. If Davie(?) gets fed up of Raith would he be interested in coming to Queens? I'd love an interviewer who asks the questions the fans want asked. For two seasons under Naysmith we leaked goals from crosses. I'm sure it was around 70% last season. I can't recall her ever bringing that up though. It's almost the same questions every week.

If the defence has been shaky for Rovers then I see no reason why the guy shouldn't question it as the fans will surely be thinking the same. His reaction screamed of a man who's coat is on a shoogly peg.
