Wonder if Mendy will go back out then or if they will be super cautious seeing as it may still be 6-7 weeks away. Also hope this a sweetner with a view to signing him on a free for next season.

Anderson is 3-4 weeks away now according to McGlynn.

Just in time for him and MacLean to lead us to cup victory at McDiarmid.

Maybe you need to get your monacle checked...

Anderson hasn't stopped training with us apart from when injured from what I'm led to believe.

Certainly sounds from John McGlynns interview that Anderson has been training with us, not.

Delighted with that, he is obviously an excellent defender and opens up the possibility of reverting to a back 5 more easily. Additionally, his experience could be invaluable over the coming weeks and months.

I’d imagine we’ll have a few St Johnstone fans backing us at the cup final now.

Also very decent of St Johnstone to effectively save us a month of whatever we are covering of Anderson’s wages.

Raith Rovers doing their best to become my second favourite club in Scotland. Good luck to him (and Maclean) - hope he helps take you back to the championship.

Hopefully he can stay fit and bring the ‘Davie Narey’ effect to this season.

Source?
Isn’t he still under contract with St Johnston? Why wouldn’t he train with them instead of us?

I’m not complaining as he’ll have a brilliant influence on boys in training even though he can’t contribute on the Saturday.

What a signing! Absolutely delighted to have him back!
Still out for another 3-4 weeks, but as I’ve said, to have him around boys at the club is excellent.

Steven Anderson confirmed as returning on loan. Thought we were only allowed one over 21 due to age limits so it's a pleasant surprise.

People from Perth now really like us btw.

Raith (Retirement) Rovers?

Actually pretty pleased with SAndo sticking around. Even if he isn’t playing for now, the knowledge and leadership and he brings to the back line, and added to MacLean’s leadership up top, will do wonders for our younger players!

Given we already had, and have successfully played, a five back with Miller/McKay/Davo/Bene/MacDonald, I’m not sure that even an SAndo for McKay change would make JMcG play less four back formations. Maybe more of a cover for a long Davo suspension for his next red, if it comes?

I‘d love to be wrong, because I feel that playing five back suits us better, but that’s why JMcG is the coach.

Have I missed something, thought the rules were we are only allowed 1 player over the age of 21 at any one time. Anderson and McLean makes 2

I disagree, there is definitely more chance of a back 5 with Anderson. Although, I have said before I don’t buy into back 5 = good, back 4 = bad it’s horses for courses. We have won 5 and drawn 2 of our last 7 league games playing a back 4.

We have played a back 5 twice in 22 games without Anderson. Both away to higher league opposition (Livingston and Inverness). So as far as I can see we have never played a back 5 in the league without Anderson. We played a five in 8 of the 11 games we had Anderson, Davo and Bene all fit together. The three times we didn’t were the day after Anderson signed and a game each where Anderson and Bene had just returned from suspension.

If our recent form continues we are unlikely to change but if there is a drop off and everyone is fit we are far more likely to revert to a back 5 with Anderson than without.

Happy to see Anderson back but on the other hand,big risk re signing an injured played in rehab and possibly 3-4 weeks from fitness.Just needs a delay in recovery or breakdown on recovery and its a waste of money or we,ve paid money for an influence in the dressing room and around the club

I reckon Anderson will be signing permanently in the summer anyway.

We will be selling ticket and coach packages for the Cup Final to Rovers Season Ticket Holders between 1pm and 7pm on Wednesday 4th March and Thursday 5th March 2020.

Thereafter, dates will be announced for open sale.

SPFL guidelines dictate that the Club is required to record names and addresses for each ticket sale, however we will also require a mobile telephone number for everyone travelling by Club Coach.

Purchases can be made in person at the Raith Suite or by telephone at the Stadium Main Office on 01592 263514 option 6 on the 4th and 5th of March 2020.

Given staffing and operational demands, the sales team WILL NOT be available until 1300 on both dates.

Jack Smith going out on loan to Dundonald. I thought he’s looked pretty good when he’s played. EoS is a really poor level.

We have alot of attacking options that are ahead of him. I think he could have done a job at league 2 level but at least he should be gaurenteed regular game time at Dundonald, which is what he needs having barely played.

gaurenteed  ?😮 Eh ?
