Just been looking online at the club shop, it's still showing as £40


When you add it to your shopping cart and go to checkout it applies the discount.

Ah makes sense, I already have it but was just looking at the new shop. Won't help sales if it isn't advertised on the link for it.

It appears on Twitter but not on the news feed.

I’ve little doubt if he stays free of injury that young Bowie will move onto a higher level, how high only time will tell and when he does we should hold out for as good a price as we can get not sell to the first Premiership club for a pack of biscuits, a preseason friendly and a loan player. The lad is happy here and in no rush to leave so unless an offer too good to refuse comes in I’m more than happy to keep him. I’d love to see him playing at the top level and as an international one day after a big pay day for the Rovers but we’re a long way from that at this time so let’s just enjoy him wanting to turn out at Starks.

Livingston away = shite draw, not even a good town for a sesh.
There is a large bar under the stand for both sets of fans

Was in the wee Main Stand shop today for the first time, it’s got some amount of stuff in it! Went there to get the Anniversary Vodka & a bottle of beer, came away with a mini scarf for my car also, been after one of those for years - had one on my old car years ago, and forgot about it when I traded it in. Plenty Rovers branded Polo shirts also, white & navy which I suspect will go down a nice treat to a lot of fans.

The club social media pages should deffo be plugging that as much as they can in the lead up to Xmas. Should do a nice wee number.

So, what do we really have? in my opinion:

Keepers:

McGurn is an acceptable backup, Munro is an excellent starter, but may be away in January (thou Ross have three keepers on the team right now and are leaning heavily on Laidlaw), Thomson we'vre yet to see after his injury.

Backline:

On the back line, we have SAndo, Davo and Bene who can all play well in as CB's in a back 3, with wingbacks outside, but all of whom seem less able in a back 4, regardless of position.

MacDonald is a magnificent left wingback, as is Miller on the right.

McKay is a perfectly usable CB in a 3 and can play the wingback too, at a lower level than the other two.

Watson, I can't say we've seen enough of him at right wingback, and probably won't with Miller healthy....

If McKay can fill for any of the other three CB's, until Davo goes mental and we get an injury at the same time, we're OK there. 

Can GAndo fill in for MacDonald is he's dinged, possibly? Could Tait, unlikely? McKay can probably fill for Miller

 

So, now everyone tell me the stupid stuff I missed.

 

Well, with 1.3 recent games of seeing it, McKay simply isn’t cut out as a WB at this level. We either need to play Watson there and leave McKay on the bench, or use McKay to rest Davo/Bene/SAndo so they survive the season. If Watson can’t do it, maybe try GAndo again?

Is there a better solution...

If you think McKay isn’t cut out for this level wait until you see Watson.

Well, at some point we need to find out, preferably before Jan.

Not that I’m defending McGlynn playing McKay in that position we’ve not lost a game with him there nor has he produced a Mendy’esque level of diddy type performance....yet.

True, but with tough games coming up, we still don’t know if Watson or Smith can play at this level, we have some idea on Tait. This is critical data before January.

As for now, if SAndo is nicked, we need to pray Miller is back next weekend, or we’re really in the rough. Anyone know why he was subbed at the half?

Smith looks like he does have enough about him. Watson is clearly out of his depth and was lucky we had Smith to give him a two year deal. It would be better for all party's if he was offloaded in Jan whether that's a loan or a permanent deal

That's the 3rd game we've been absolutely shite in and we haven't lost one of them or conceded a single goal. Some would say that's the sign of a team that could go all the way.

We certainly have a truly bizarre correlation between being utterly shite and suddenly not conceding goals.

Today was actually our third 1-0 away win of the season. We only managed one clean sheet on the road all of last season (the 2-0 v Arbroath at Christmas).

So while performances aren’t great at the moment, you’d certainly have to say John McGlynn has addressed many of the issues of last season.

So JMcG described the second half formation as a 4-2-3-1

McKay, Davo, Bene, MacDonald

Who was where in front?

Any of you know what the deal with Ando is in terms of the loan agreement?

It seems virtually certain we should be trying to get him back in January, if its possible, despite the fact hes almost finished at top flight level.
