I can’t be arsed trying to find a thread for tonight on the cup forum, if there even is one?

Mass changes apparently, which is good. We have some form of depth in the squad now so can ring the changes without losing too much quality. Don’t care about the score, just no injuries would do me.

There's a thread running in the Domestic Cup Football Forum.

Tx is gonna be beside himself if, as I suspect, we see game time tonight for some of the younger lads. Couple of half time subs and a bit of squad rotation and he'll thrash himself into a foam.

Happy to see some play for Mitchell and Arnott, strange Bow wasn’t named to the bench, good enough result…now, let’s rotate this lineup for Saturday…😜

Yes it’s a wee bit worrying and I’m surprised he hasn’t extended yet. Any club that’s likely to be tempted to come in for him and would be tempting for him is unlikely to be put off by paying compensation.  McGlynn seems to enjoy Raith and is along with Campbell a manager who could probably survive being relegated and get a chance the following season as the fans have faith in him.  I’m interested who would be realistic to go for him and be tempting for him. Hearts obviously but he got burned last time and made the scapegoat during their financial crash, Hibs no chance.  Aberdeen, Motherwell and the Dundee Teams seem the only clubs in Scotland that I think could tempt him. The other top flight clubs while he’d get a better deal than Raith are risky as a few bad results and you’re facing the sack. Hopefully we keep him and get a new contract signed, between Sim, the board and McGlynn we’re clearly looking up for the first time in a very long time they clearly have ambitions of top flight football for the club. 

I'm still convinced that Christophe Berra came here to take over the management roll with Paul Smith.

Not an impossibility but I’d be interested in why you think this.

I just thought that yes the two year deal was a part of him signing, something else must have been offered to tempt him away from hearts. If he is still coaching at Hearts as people say, it seems a bit strange a full time player is still coaching at another club. Broadening his experience for future ventures.

Turns out Bow is out indefinitely with a knee injury...good thing we didn’t have to try out Frankie at keeper!

It was more the reason you thought it'd be Berra and Smudger that caught my eye. I think when one retires the other will go too. They are almost the same age, I'm sure John is 60 this month and Smudger's 60 next year,

I'd be doubtful if Christophe was to still be coaching at Hearts. He may be, but given how he was sidelined by Neilson last year it may be a good reason for leaving. I would think it unlikely he's involved there. Plus he is full time with us.
