The New Raith Rovers Thread


Recommended Posts

If Rovers needed the money that badly that they can again carry out a very poor , late deal why can't they instead ask us the fans to contribute again ?

I'd rather pay out to help the club than constantly have us give talent away at bargain prices. Do we have any ambition? What is the point of the Supporters Fund ?

It appears to be a subsidy for other clubs' benefit.

If you're reading Niall, the pre-match interview tomorrow would be a good chance to ask McGlynn some probing questions.......

 

Will we be getting anyone else as part of the deal?  Did he get a say in allowing Dylan to leave?  Does he have replacements in mind?  Did we try and fail to strengthen the squad leading up the window closing?  Will he be getting the transfer fee added to his playing budget?

 

I'm sure others will chip in with some other things they would like to know.

He'll never ask these questions, we rarely ask any probing questions unless approved before any interview.

It'll more than likely be "So, John.....how important is it that we try and progress in the diddy cup and is it important we come out this game with no new injuries?"

It's OK though because we get to keep Tait for 3 whole months now.

33% sell on you're having a laugh. We will probably see very little in terms of clauses. It's funny that the first club that comes in for him and we again roll over. This should have been a solid NO and if they wanted him that much the negotiation takes place to get the very best deal for our best young player. We should also have negotiated a loan for another Hibs player.

Very disappointing from a club thought were trying to move forward. Instead this shows no ambition and I fear for this season. 

Morton signed 4 players yesterday, we announce our best player is out again for the season and our best youngster is not even ours.

After all the financial support the club received last season, 500k grant, 50k covid grant, 150k Bowie transfer, over 100k from fan donations and season ticket sales and Raith TV contributions I think the club have treated the fans very poorly.

What’s a more realistic answer for the sell on % then?  Am sure st mirren got 33% for John McGinn and the pars got 33% for Nisbet.

Pretty sure they wouldn,t have raised much.Many fans pockets like mine are virtually empty contributing to the  club when things aren,t going swimmingly

Out of interest what do folk value him at and what deal would you have done?

I'd go with

250k cash.

Another player on loan.

Tait on loan for the full season.

Payment for x amount of appearances.

Payment for international caps.

15% sell on fee.

You'd never have sold him on those terms. Not in a thousand years.

I really felt the club were moving in such a positive direction, on and off the pitch, over the past few seasons. It seems like we’ve really taken some huge steps back in the space of just a couple of weeks.

Don’t think it’s helped with this coming right at the back of the Vaughan news.  Don’t think anybody would have been happy regardless, but if Vaughan wasn’t injured then selling Tait wouldn’t feel as much like someone kicking you when you’re already down.

Seen a few folk say they'll be stopping with the development fund on the back of this. I really think the club has underestimated how much of a knock on this will have.

It's not just the development fund. I'm a season ticket holder and I just can't be arsed any more. As things stand I really don't know when I'll go back. What's the point when your own board treats you like shit?
