Obviously everyone will be busy with a lot of things just now but would be great if it was possible get another Raith TV interview with Bill Clark next week at some point. The league prize money should be paid out today which seems to be anywhere between 50-70k depending on who you believe. Between various fund raisers and donations we must have brought in close to an additional 60k since this began, that is without including the monthly supporters fund. A fantastic effort from all involved.

 

Did Bill Clark not say in one of his interviews that we had also received a 20k payment for the Cup final?

I’ve noticed Wilfrid Nanou is on the Q and A list. I was only 9-10 years old when he was with us but I thought he was brilliant. However, I’m not sure if my opinion was based on actual performances or the fact he was good on LMA Manager. Can anyone a bit older at that time confirm what type of player he was?

Box to box tiredless worker, full of energy and won his fair share of tackles. Lacked a bit in the technical quality department if I remember correctly?

Got me thinking - I loved Jean Phillipe Javery (I think that was his name) absolute nutter but a damn fine player if I recall.

Yeah, maybe time has shone a good light on Nanou but I remember him as a good box to box player that could keep play moving. He had a terrific game away to Hamilton when we hammered them 4-0.

Bored so checked out the 2001/2002 team, few points:

Derek Niven - we sold him to Bolton (need to see what he became).

Sacha Opinel - Mentalist.

Kevin Nicol - Remember he got a hard time being a KDY boy.

Sammy Monin - Does anyone remember a game at Arbroath where he burst his mouth and they bandaged over it or something? I might be making this up, I was young.

Got testicular cancer at Bolton and never played for them

ETA: survived and ended up in the English non-league. Just in case anybody was worried about the worst there

Yeah, I loved Javary, him and Sasha the Slasher were some pair to have in that team.

Guys with the skill and talent of Dargo, Burns and Agathe further up the park. Then sheer brainless terrier like tackling further back.

Guido, Alex Burns, Marv Andrews.....great times.

Davie Kirkwood - best passer of the football to ever live. Did we not have a tartan away kit in those days?

That was a wee bit before then. 96/97.

... and yeah, Kirkwood's range of passing was incredible. Shite than him and Lennon became such targets for the boo boys by the end of their tenures.

Kirkwood was there there when we had the tartan kit, Guido & Co was later I think.

Hello lads.

We'll be in for our annual raid of your two best players soon enough*. Who are they this year?

 

 

 

 

 

*No ITK. I'm 100% making this up. Hoping at least one of our derby matches at East End and Starks is open to fans next season.

I'd love to pretend to not get the references there. Can't though.

You like loaning him to a rival so I look forward to his loan signing being confirmed over the summer.

Thankfully our board appear more astute at looking after the club these days.

Hendry and Vaughan are probably our best players. Both love the club aswell.

Regan Hendry is some boy. Kicked back Falkirk throwing money to sign for us because of how our fans had treated him.  Then picked up a winners medal while being the standout midfielder in the league alongside Brad Spencer.
