Incredible achievement. Afterwards did any Raith fans have a footballing hangover? In the sense we're you aware that was as good as you were ever likely to get etc? 

 

 

Also thanks for Nesbit, no idea how much we paid for him but it was worth it, absolutely player x

If he leaves in January we'll get a decent wedge for him, Shankland last January showed that teams aren't willing to spend big bucks on a championship striker though. 

I'd imagine if we don't get promoted he'll move on up, if that happens he'll have given us a good season so no complaints, we'll just pick up whatever striker is banging them in down the road, easy.

It’s Nisbet.

I wonder if Kevin Nisbet reads these forums and silently fumes that people can’t even get his surname right.

No, we went on the pip the Pars to the league title. Great days.

Then there was Munich. Admittedly since then there have been a few bumps in the road.

I used to go home and away regularly, so I was in Munich, at Firhill where we drew with Accies to win the league and at Ibrox for the Coca Cola Cup Final.

With Nisbet now banging in the goals for Pars, was the compensation issue ever sorted. ?

i remember at the time it was reported the Clubs couldn’t agree a fee but I’ve seen nothing since and I don’t think there has been a tribunal.

i would have thought Raith would be due a wee wedge.

The date for the tribunal has passed, rumour at the time is that we waived some money that Raith were due us from the Scottish Cup from last season.

It was never going to be a large amount, good bit of business by us getting him without a sell on fee.

Thanks for the Euan Murray money. Effectively replacing him with Steven Anderson is excellent business also, everyone wins.

I don't think you had an option, you can't put sell on fee's for players that are effectively free to move on. Realistically it was good business by Raith to pick him up last season, don't think anyone saw his upturn coming. Apart from Barry Smith apparently.

It's a shame we've not been able to see the best of Murray, picked up a nasty head injury.

Being 14 at the time I was naive enough to think it would always be that good.
I’d been going to almost every game for 4 seasons by that time and I’d seen them win two titles, a league cup and play in the premier league.

If only I’d known what the next 25years would bring I would have appreciated it more

Hmm, I've yet to see the evidence of that. Not anymore solid at the back and lost a significant goal threat from Murray.

Much more solid at the back, we've already kept more clean sheets than we did the whole of last season. 

McDonald is a better left back than Murray and Anderson is a better centre back. We don't miss him.
