The New Raith Rovers Thread


Recommended Posts

Great to be back.  As for the game, typical pre season but it's clear the trialists are jersey fillers and little else.

I'd like to see how things look with Spencer in there, but yeah we need something else in there.

Trialists presumably a left back and some fashion of holding midfielder? 

The five attacking players there could really be put out in just about any permutation you can think of. Maybe a 4-2-3-1 with Tait in the 2, and Keatings ahead of Vaughan as the striker and the number 10 respectively? 

Looking like a 4-2-4 with the wingers and wingbacks freely sweeping back and forth.

(First half was)

Mac

Tumilty, Bene, Berra, Trialist A

Trialist C, Tait

Connolly, Keatings, Vaughan, Zanatta

 

Must say, the kit isn’t half bad on viewing now.

Nice interplay between Vuaghan and Keatings, that could be a nice partnership.

Trialist 21 looks like he is just in helping out - way out his depth. 

Trialist 16 looked OK on the ball, but not getting near the opposition when defending. 

442 shape looks awful though that is with Tait and trialist as the two. I don't think Connolly or Zanatta have done anything to confound their critics.

He must be foaming at the mouth now

Good (not really) to see the moaners are back in their pre season training. Boy behind me is "seek fed up" of Connolly "hiding" and cutting in. Boy in front just shakes his heid and does his crossword.29172813_16247159801662.thumb.jpeg.619a845fa91fa8d6cfc946271cb503fa.jpeg

Confirmed one of the “Trialists” is actually Mitchell.

He's listed as a trialist on the match day app, he's not listed on the team sheet as one. So we do still have 3 trialists involved today.

That makes more sense…but we have 4 trialists, A, B, C, and D.

I was going to say that he looks like someone we've picked up from FEFA for the day. Not that he's done anything wrong, at all, he's just clearly fairly young and a little green. 
16 looks a wee bit more composed, although other than one lovely ball into the channel he hasn't been too involved. 



That’s correct the boy is at fife elite academy just saw his dad post about him playing beside Berra at the back. Sure he’s only 17.

16 Coming a lot more into the game. Looks a big dude too.  Comes across like a player like Wilson at the pars

16 was well composed, if not heavily involved. Looks useful in a general sense, takes care of the ball and moves it precisely.

Bene and Berra look quite the old, married couple at back. Bene looks surprisingly comfortable at RCB after all the time he spent at LCB, and Berra has slid in at LCB with no problem at all. Connolly looks very good.

RaithTV doesn’t recognize the LB Trialist as a Fife Elite player, and say he looks quite young.
