Get a mahoosive telly into Stark's and place it behind the home end goal. Fiver or something to get in, pies on sale, club shop open, 50 50 draw etc.

Weegie minks.

Did anyone else have issues today with the seat you could pick when buying tickets. I selected an available ticket online and 10 minutes before kick off a chap who was the season ticket holder for the seat I could get turned up. No issues moving as its his seat but surely the club should not be selling seats online which have already been purchased by a season ticket holder. Very poor and unprofessional from the club.

Ditto, both myself and my dads season ticket seats was sold again by the club. Unless it was yourself that moved for me .

I think we will see John as director of football with Laurie Ellis as manager, at some point.

I'm thinking Berra ain't here just to play for a couple of years.

He’s coaching at Hearts.

Nobody scanned our season tickets, we just had to show them at the gate.

Because the system or WiFi wasn't working...

Careful, or you’ll have the Falkirk gang over telling us it’s because Fifers program in base 12.

Probably doesn’t help that loads of seat numbers are either missing or wrong now since they started replacing broken ones.  The bit of the row I sit in only has two numbered seats now.  One is 27, which is correct and the one two along says 76, all the other seats are missing numbers now.

Still no excuse. If the club have to do online ticket sales then they need to get this sorted. It was okay yesterday as there were plenty of empty seats but if we play a Celtic or Rangers then it will become an absolute mess. Surely the easy answer are for all season ticket seats to be marked as taken on the booking system.

There's been an issue around the area I sit pretty much every week. It is a bit of a shambles.

Just caught up with the news about not being allowed to go to Celtic Park. 

The statement from the club has really annoyed me. They say the reason is because of covid guidelines in relation to match day redzones. What the f**k is that meant to mean? Busses leave Fife every week to go to old firm games and Hampden was full of people from all over the country last week. So I take it these guidelines and redzones only apply to Raith Rovers fans?

The part about Celtic having to re-seat season ticket holders in the away is just fucking laughable. 

Working every Saturday atm so struggling to attend any games and was looking forward to this. Aye we'll probably get pumped but a cup quarter final is a pretty big for a club like ours

Gullan on the bench for hibs. Wish he was leading the line for raith instead. 

Might be a controversial one here, but what would Gullan bring that’s different to Matej or Varian? The 3 of them all very similar. We need a hidden gem like a Ryan Hardie from way back in on loan where someone will come in and hit the ground running with goals. (I have absolutely no idea who that would be by the way!)

Agree with this. We've had numerous loanees in over the last while and Gullan scored a few goals but only really seemed to work well when he was up top with Vaughan. If we're looking at loanees, I'd far rather we looked to add in midfield as opposed to up top. We've got Varian, Poplatnik and Keatings all fit at the moment. In the midfield, we've not really got anyone fit other than Zanatta who is particularly creative. Connolly being injured means that there's further limitations. Tait has flashes of creativity, Spencer is a bit of a jack of all trades, and you've got Riley Snow and Matthews there too. Yesterday shows how with a few bodies missing, we really struggle to break teams down.

It’s more to do with the Red Zones within the ground itself. Subs still aren’t allowed on the bench so they sit in the stand. Celtic’s excuse for league games is that they need to re-seat season ticket holders whose seats are in the red zone. Although since S/Ts aren’t valid for the cup, it’s a pretty shoddy excuse. Crap view from the away bit in Celtic Park anyway.

It’s all down to “so long as they’re shitting in our shoes we’ll be pissing in their Bovril” Old Firm tit-for-tat. Celtic don’t want to set a precedence of giving opposition fans tickets as that leaves the door open for Rangers fans to demand an allocation for the next OF and as Celtic didn’t have one at Ibrox last month they don’t want to give them one. There’s probably very little any of us or the club could do to make them see otherwise.

Preaching to the choir here, the midfield is our definite soft spot, in my opinion. We have several player would can score, but aren’t scoring. When we look to why, there was a definite lack of open play crosses and well delivered corners yesterday…and our forwards aren’t generally providing either of those, our midfield is. We had Arnott on the bench as the sole remaining “midfielder”, and weren’t willing to play him, which is a clear comment on our shortage of talent in the middle. iMHO, we should have rolled the lad out, but JMcG sees him daily, and didn’t think it was the move.
