James Logan, Sandy Archibald, Bert Herdman,  Jimmy Nicholl.

Just add John McGlynn to the list of the best.

Absolutely, but don't forget Frank Connor.

Now we know how lethal Gozie is when he can't see the target, you can only imagine how deadly he'll become when he turns the right way round.

What Nicholl did won't be repeated by anyone. Ever. Whenever anyone hears I support the Rovers, they immediately mention Bayern and Celtic.  
I would hold Mcglynn very close to Nicholl though. He's brought the club up from the doldrums, twice and defied the oldest saying in the book of "never go back". The way he completely changed his style in between spells is remarkable. 
When he came back, some people were losing their nut because he played shit football and didn't give youth a chance. Interesting. 


Not sure it’ll never happen again, us winning one of the big cups is obviously a long shot but it’s hardly beyond the realms of possibility. Queen of the South, Falkirk, Ross County, Dunfermline, Inverness, Dundee have all been in finals this century with a couple winning it we’re hardly looking at those clubs as giants of the game. You need a lot of luck with draws but it’s possible for a club of our size to achieve it. Getting through Europe to the big clubs is the hard one these days as you need to win the Scottish and then get through the preliminary rounds.

My season expectations have now been upgraded from "we'll be lucky to stay up" after the QoS match, to "six points from the Hearts double header and we're right in the title race".

It's on....

Our Board need to start growing the fanbase, not pricing to discourage attendance, and start making more contact with local communities.

It’s almost like you ran out of cliches there...

The election for position of fans rep on the board will be held in a few months time. If you feel so passionate on these issues perhaps you should consider standing.

The board have done well with all that. Just a month ago mcglynn and a few others were out handing out food parcels with the Linton lane center for example. It's a bit hard to do more when the country has been in a state of lockdown for almost a year.

What a poorly thought out, nay, stupid thing to say.

Can't beleive that Raith are having such a successful season and yet have an average attendance of 0, disgusting. 

 

Sack the board.

Our average attendance is as big as the Pars' this season and we've still got Hearts to come twice at home.

They are getting similar supports at games these days. Won't be long till they are in the premiership and we are fighting it out for 4th spot in league 1 and 2.

The board have done the biggest thing they could in this regard; bring in McGlynn and Smith who have built an entertaining, likeable squad. 

What ideas do you have?
