It happens Mcgurn wasn't deemed good enough at Morton and look how that turned out.
Laidlaw showed he had the basics down at us but was error prone. He's obviously not a bad 'keeper to be at the level he is.

Good on the lad, I’ll be honest I thought he’d be playing in the Juniors by now. The few years he’s been away from us you’d think he’d improve loads

Fair played to the lad he's still prone to a few gaffes but he's doing better than most expected.  Have you sobered up yet?

Same with Allan.  Don't remember McGlynn saying anything about them in pre match interview.

I was listening in on Raith TV, they said they knew allan was injured but McGlynn didn't say in his pre match interview as he didn't want the opposition knowing. I am sure he has done this before with injured players

Yeah, for all his lack of goals, Allan's hold up play has been generally useful, that alongside Anderson's willingness to cover ground and get in behind the defender would've allowed us to change our game plan considerably, bypass midfield to an extent and maybe pin Clyde a wee bit deeper when they were turning over the ball.

As it is we're kinda already on plan B with not much of a plan C.

There's something about your guys physio or training methods that needs to be looked at with these injuries. It's ridiculous that this has been going on for so long.

Most of the injuries have happened in games rather than training.

OK, but unlucky can only get you so far. Player conditioning? Nobody gets this unlucky for 3 years. It's absurd and needs questioned.

Our injuries have been shite for years. Over 3/4 managers, backroom teams and even two different pitches. There are very little constants.

To be fair, we seem to sign a lot of players who have had bad injury issues in the past then act surprised and hard done by when they flair up again.

Saw this table elsewhere...decided to play with some numbers. With 18 games home and away, I divided 18 by the played games on easy side (18/3=6, for instance, or 18/4=4.5). I then multiplied the points earned in each category and added them up. If, somehow, the current road and home form prevailed, we could expect the following table at seasons end:

Raith Rovers       75

East Fife               72

Falkirk                    68

Airdrie                    56

Dumbarton         50

Clyde                     47 

Forfar                    36

Montrose             35

Peterhead          32

Stranraer            25

 

Now, I don’t expect this to work out this way, but it does show how the teams are performing in the first part of the season. I would suggest it tells us that 60 points should assure making the playoffs, and right at 50 or so is likely the first team out.
