The New Raith Rovers Thread

So basically Sim is saying it's McGlynns fault? Could get messy. 

No, more like Sim assumed McGlynn wouldn’t want to sell, so said as much.

But then after speaking to McGlynn, actually McGlynn had a different opinion.

Really excellent statement I thought, explains the timings and thought process- not sure how any of us could realistically say that they should have done things differently.

Agent trying to pull a fast one there with what he'd said about speaking to McGlynn. 

I guess we'll see in due course what the fee was. Whilst Sim says it's higher than reported by some outlets (and I only saw £100k quoted by The Courier) I do struggle to see how we go from no cash and punting us players to six figures.

We all know players agents are greedy fuckers, he would have pushed the deal through to make a sizeable figure for himself, would have done the same if I were an agent.

 

All I can say to Dylan is play well for Hibs and bring us in a lot more £ in the future

"John McGlynn is a very resourceful manager, and he was indeed already considering the possible options open."

I wonder if that means he has a ready replacement in mind or that he has decided how he will rearrange the team once Tait has left....

That's touched on in the statement. 

Dylan Tait may not have signed an extension if he thought his upward trajectory was at risk.

As it is, he signed, a great opportunity arose and the Rovers scored 100k+ as a result. 

We've lost a fantastic player but his being loaned back gives SJM a good amount of time to source a replacement.

I took that as a reference to McGlynn's plan to move Musonda into midfield.

By the sounds of it Tait was likely to go next summer anyway so surly we would want to maximise the fee now rather than essentially a season later. Maybe this isn’t a bad deal at all. 
 

Have to laugh at Hibs trying to pull a rangers on us by offering a few jobbers on loan. Good on the board for telling them where to go, we all know previous boards would have said yes

I’m annoyed a bit. A down south sell would defo get us a saucy sell on fee.  Hibs go get bullied like they bullied us since it’s SPL.

We do have a significant sell on fee, what this is no one knows but I would imagine 20% or more

All he said was McGlynn didn't want an unhappy player on his hands , quite rightly so and that was confirming what McGlynn said in his interview , if Tait and his family wanted the move to happen, I dont see what else the baldy one could have done about it

Fair do's to John Sim for coming out with the statement, just a pity he had to

So we,ve brought an unhappy player back on loan

Tait, based on what the club is saying, isn't unhappy given the resolution. He's got a move to a top flight team and will have undoubtedly increased his wages. He's happy to remain with us on loan until January while we're short before joining up with Hibs.

He'd only have been unhappy had we kicked back on the move, which we initially did because we're so short in central midfield.
