The New Raith Rovers Thread


Recommended Posts

Something that really worries me just now is the amount of people I know who have supported the Rovers for as long as I (and probably they) can remember that are properly pissed off with the club at the moment. 
Loyalty ultimately has a breaking point. 
Looking at the ticket sales for tomorrow we would be just as well playing it behind closed doors.

The team don't deserve it but maybe it's 2 fingers to the board and CEO fir lack of ambition. Or it could just be a meaningless cup game.

Although when we talked about money earned last season I also forgot about the 30k plus for being joint winners.

If the Board/Sim and CEO are not already aware of supporters and financial contributors displeasure at the lack of communication etc, its high time the fans rep or the supporters club conveyed the grass roots message to them
 
Precisely why we have a fans rep and further, a Supporters Liaison Officer. This is squarely their territory and we should be seeing engagement of some sort. Alas, no.

Interest in this competition was never high, but faded even more when the Premiership Colts were introduced to it. I wouldn't take poor ticket sales as being as an indicator of too much else.

It's a waste of time.

Yeah, it’s a pointless tournament. I didn’t even consider going today but I’ll happily be down at Ayr on Tuesday night for a 6pm kick off.

I think we’ll struggle to recoup a lot of our fan base if it’s online sales only. Perhaps out of the clubs hands at the moment with contact tracing rules but a fair chunk see online payments and barcodes as ‘hassle’. Would be good to get a cash option brought back ASAP.

Agree with the cash gate opinion. I’ve got plenty pals who will decide to go to gayfield on the morning of a game, and whether it actually is or not, online ticketing definitely seems more of a hassle to those type of punters rather than walking up and paying cash.

I'd agree, unfortunately our club like many other lower league clubs have an aging fan base. My dad wouldn't have a clue what to do to buy tickets online and I suspect there are many others in the same boat.

Like others I liked this tournament until the Colts came in. I hope the Wesh Irish and English get back in next year, I saw a couple of English and one Welsh and it was interesting watching styles we dont see here.

PS - oops I forgot about Glenavon.

Tbf it's probably more of a hassle queuing at the window to buy a ticket then having to queue again to go through the turnstile. Also games like Aberdeen where you would normally have to go down to the ground midweek to buy your tickets.

It was certainly interesting watching Glenavon's style. A bigger bunch of thugs you'd struggle to find. 

I'm heading along today but I doubt the crowd will be much above 500.

It's not pointless considering the way the season's gone already having played 2 games less than we should have. It'll be a strong team out.

It's a Saturday 3pm kick off and the sun's oot, get yourselves down there.

The competition itself is however pointless when it's being patronised with Premiership Colts chucked in. It's great we've got a game, but freak cancellations and postponements aside, it's a waste of time. 

The only thing I care about today is getting through it without injuries.
