Was at Ayr v Raith when Raith won 2-0 and thought big Kyle Benedictus done well that night. How has he played this season? I know he was captain, is he a real leader?

I'd be very surprised to see anyone say a bad word against him. Why single out bene with your questioning though? He is club captain.

No real reason to single him out at all. Just one I've been impressed with any time I've seen him.

I like Bene, passionate player and seems to love the club and looked to have struck up a good partnership with Berra. Tom Lang however, who has came in for Bene, has pretty much given McGlynn a big decision to make as he's strolled the last 2 games. I'd really feel for Lang if he was dropped but likewise Bene is our captain and if he wasn't injured would continue to be first pick. Will be interesting to see what happens.

Tom Langs bird has a tremendous pair of breasts, also.

Agree wholeheartedly with this. I think Bene will struggle to get back into the team immediately. Lang has really stepped up to the mark since he's come in. 

Tumilty and Lang are doing Movember. Absolutely glorious effort from Reghan.

Just looking at the clubs fixtures. Including the two cup ties, it means that 7 out of the next 9 matches are away from home.  That can’t be great for the club’s cash flow. I know we’ve just had a run of Saturday home games, but still. Hopefully there’s no adverse impact. 
 

Edited to say we’ll obviously get a share of the ICT and Falkirk gates, but these things are notoriously slow to work through.

It will even itself out over the season no need to worry.

Indeed. You can expect the ghost of Yoss to rise from woke Hell to issue eternal curses...

I am fond of tits.

Hello everyone, hope you're all well. I don't see much of Raith at the moment but I was at my first game of the season at East End last week. Pretty scrappy performance but I was very impressed with Lang and encouraged by Mitchell's brief appearance. Still generally impressed by the club's progress, and of course still a big fan of McGlynn.

Lang has looked very assured in these last two games. I’d like to see us stick with him, even if Bene is fit again.

I like Bene, he’s been a good servant to the club and has played well this season. He was still part of the calamitous partnership with Davo though, for which he wasn’t entirely blameless.

Seeing Berra with the armband on just seems right too. The guy is a model pro and has been a colossus so far. Certainly much better than Davidson, and I was a Davo fan!

McGlynn mentioned at the start of the season that he had several plans. I suspect and hope one of those would be a back 3. With Musonda near fit again, we’d have cover there if not used it the DM role. This would allow Tumilty and Dick even more freedom to get forward. How the front line would line up would cause some debating but i’d be keen to see us giving it a go.

It's not going to happen. Bene has been fantastic this season and JM is not the type of manager to bench a club captain because someone has come in and done well whilst he's been injured. Lang will either have to bide his time again or we switch to 3/5 at the back more often.

Am I right in thinking it was believed Lang could cover left back?  If Dick is out, as it were, on Saturday then we might find out.  I don't necessarily want to know if he is, because if I know then the opposition knows too...
