Can't help but fear the worst for Vaughan after that interview. I reckon the club would have put a positive spin on it if it was anything but his ACL.

Other than that, a positive interview and it's good to hear from Karen on what her role is and what she's been doing since taking up the position.

Yeah, the lack of any kind of mitigating "but it might not be as bad as first feared..." statement really doesn't bode well there. Presumably there's a wait on MRI results or whatever to confirm the full extent but that's not good news at all, to say the least. 

There's no need for this doom-laden talk of immediate retirement, though. Vaughan's under contract for another three years. Plenty time to focus on just getting well without fearing about his job at this stage. 

Absolutely heart sick for the guy though, if indeed it is another really long spell out.

We can't loan Gullan as we already have an over 21 year old in Poplatnik. If we wanted him back, we'd have to buy him. 

If Hibs have told him he's free to go then the latter is not unfeasible, right enough. 

It's at least 3 or 4 years since there was a restriction on over 21 loans.

As much as I agree, the guy is going to end up crippling himself long term if he continues to keep getting these injuries. He needs to have a long think about it all and the impact it will have on his life outside of the game. He is under contract so does have that security behind him but coming back from 3 never mind 4 acl injuries is going to impact his general wellbeing long term.

Where be the access to this Raith Tv Lounge free to season ticket holders that Ms MacCartney speaks of?

 

It's on the normal Raith.tv website.  There's a option to access the Video Lounge from it when you log in.

The signals are not good. I'll be surprised if we see Vaughan again this season. My expectation is that he'll be rested until everything is 100% before restarting any strenuous training. In fact if it's his ACL on the one that's been done twice already then it'll probably be goodnight.
