The New Raith Rovers Thread


Recommended Posts

Anyone else starting to get the feeling we might actually get out of the group for the first time ever? Beat Alloa and then Livi is essentially a free hit? Maybe I’m being too optimistic…

Is it top 2 that go through? Or top and best placed 2nd place?

Tumilty's engine and work rate has been unreal. 

Has been since he joined us. It’s simply amazing that Ross Co (used him at RM), Falkirk (RM and a little RB), Morton (RB) and Dumbarton (RB plus a bit of LB and RM) all decided that Tumilty wasn’t able to perform at their respective levels. While youth and development account for some of that, his drive and engine would have always been there, it just took JMcG’s love of flying wingbacks to develop him into, arguably, the best RB in the Scottish Championship. I really hope we are pursuing a extension of Tumilty’s contract already, as losing him and Frankie at the end of this year would be brutal. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Reghan move up to the Premiership or down south on his next contract, unfortunately.

I was unable to watch, how did Arnott and Mitchell do in cleanup time?

The wee flaw in there is that we play Livingston before Alloa.

We'll tell you, but you've got to promise to never use this phrase again.

Has Connolly been given more of a free role?
I thought he was brought in as a winger, with Zanatta on the other side? But several times in the games we have played, he seems to find himself in the same areas or positions as Dario.

 I think tonight Brechin were sitting so deep that Berra was pretty much the lone centre half, Bene was almost a right wing back and Tumilty pretty much a right midfielder which freed up Connolly to float about more.

No deal, at least they didn’t ride the pine all night.

…and it sounds like Arnott and Coulson are probably heading on loan, perhaps with Young when Lang and Musonda are back.

Ah, I thought for some reason the Livi game was last… so there’s still time for a very Rovers esque collapse
