I'm not having that. 6 points from 3 games against Forfar, Falkirk and East Fife would be a good return. Not so much from Dumbarton, Clyde and Stranraer.
 

3 points is 3 points regardless who you are playing. 

East Fife? A team who have drew their opening games with 2 of the teams we’ve comfortably beaten? 

You add nothing but utter negativity. Give. It. A. Fucking. Rest. Please.

You need to make a change...

Correct Scottydog i posted the same on the game forum. Its getting to easy to blame the defence when for 2 of the goals our midfield were no where to be seen.

The hallmark of previous J McG teams has always been that we have been dogged (some might say turgid) and hard to beat. He needs to get that mindset back into the entire team. He maligned last seasons team for lacking heart, he needs to prove his signings have what's required.
Stranraer's opener was an out and out glorious strike but my word the guy had a fortnight to pick his spot, why wasn't he closed down? Where was the midfield? Why didn't a defender close him down?
The second was awful defending, in particular a certain defender who fell over, didn't get up quickly and in fact was still laying prone when the ball finally hit the net. Once again though the midfield were absent in the run up to it.
The 3rd was all on the witch who was worryingly slow to react but again you have to question the midfields part in the run up to it, where was the drive, commitment and bodies on the line to stop them?
We have 3 good creative midfielders but by **** they need to learn to dig for it too!

Maybe the chairman has to come out and defend the clubs position in terms of recruitment signings etc. Have we been paid by dunfy for Murray when is the Nisbet situation going to be resolved? Because its clear Mcglynn isnt happy regarding squad numbers. Im not happy to be honest was a contributer to the development fund now the players fund with a higher contribution than before! We should have went totally part time and try and reduce the debt because year after year our debt is just going to grow unless we get out of league 1 which i cant see in the forseeable future. The rot started with Gary Locke still cant believe we made this appointment based on an horrific track record as a manager,John hughes enough said, finally Barry Smith another melt who was sacked by dundee, Aldershot, Alloa,Brechin City, left us before he was pushed IMO and East Fife who he blew promotion with after sitting in a good position.

Yep, the same East Fife who gave us no end of bother last season. They might have drawn with Clyde and Peterhead but there is absolutely no chance we'll beat them as easily as we did those two teams.

I wasn’t at the game on Saturday, and could only go by reports and highlights but Saturday didn’t bear all the hallmarks of last season’s dismal failures on the road.

We were rarely unlucky when losing last season. Most losses felt like they were inevitable and thoroughly deserved, with the opponents creating chance after chance, but I thought we looked the better side for long spells on Saturday, albeit didn’t create enough.

I’d also agree with the thoughts that the midfield were probably just as much to blame for the goals we conceded. The gap between the defensive and midfield units were huge when Stranraer broke.

As for the next two fixtures,four points would probably leave us with an acceptable return from the first five games, while six would be encouraging.

Anything less than that though, and it’s going to feel wearily familiar.

Do you actually read your posts back?

Absolutely no chance? Jesus Christ. 

Is this the same East fife team who haven’t won in 11 past league matches that you are referring to?

He’s trying to wind folk up, better off ignoring. Really not sure what the end game is tbh; playing the years long troll game on folk that support the same team as him? Weirdo.

Ali More advised us that the Board want Rovers to break even this year & that would include the projected income from the Supporters Fund. We need to try to encourage another 200 on

the gate to have more money for more players.

I would be stunned if Raith broke even for the year, not just because its Raith, but you still have a pretty much full-time core, and most full time teams in Scotland are struggling to break even. I would have suggested a decent cup run would probably have helped more than convincing fans to sign up to a supporters fund, (although that would help regardless) which is why i am surprised so many managers take the league cup group stages so lightly.

I have no idea what level of loss we're looking at for last season, but we were told it was "controlled". You'd have to assume that this season's budget is a further decrease on that. 

Whether it's enough to break even we will find out in the future. 

A televised cup tie would of course be very welcome however.

Nothing like a story making the papers to panic a club into telling the manager to make a grovelling apology. Very classy that he admits it could just as easily have been his wife he was a dick to.

Rovers can do miles better than McGlynn.
