St Johnstone 2-0 up already in the playoff. 

Another season of Caley, just to cheer us all up. 

Maybe we’ll get a manager who can beat them.

The last Rovers manager to do so was Peter Hetherston. 

I was at that game, great day out. 

Anyway, it's 2-2 now. Would rather ICT went up. Normally a shite away crowd at Starks and obviously we're shite against them.

Read this thinking that can't possibly be right. f**k me, it is. I remember the Hetherston season and recording back-to-back 4-1 home wins against ICT and Ross County. Changed days indeed.

I see planning permission has been granted for the community hub at the north stand. That’s good news. Hopefully a small step forward in repairing links with the community.

I canny be the only one who is thinking it is at the wrang end!  

Surely for a matchday experience it should be at the South Stand, whereby easier access can be gained, and a wee half time visit could also be gained without running the wrath of away fans prior to the game?  
Unless, in his superior gracefullness and thought process, Sim is gonny chuck us all in the North Stand again?

There's not exactly enough space at the South end for it.

I would imagine that the available space behind the South Stand isn't sufficient to achieve this, especially as the players car park is up there too. I wouldn't be adverse to home fans moving to the North Stand, its bigger etc and would allow fans to take advantage of the new facilities overall.

They would need to move all the tiles and names off the stairs tho.

I remember sitting in that stand when we beat Dundee United after McLean left us after 1 game in charge to take over at United. 

Think I prefer the South stand

The home fans were in the North stand for a season back in the late 80’s/early 90’s I seem to remember. I’m not sure why. It felt a bit strange so I’d prefer to stay in the South Stand

My thinking was that the concourse under the stand next to the railway could be 'built out' from within to facilitate a unit of the same size.  
Car park is easy to relocate to the north end.  
IF we had to move to the North Stand, it would be OK too.  The north end of the Railway stand is seated too, and I would much prefer to be at the side of the pitch.  Access is from the North Stand.
Leave the Main Stand as is, for the old fogeys and the board. ;)

Personally think it is more feasible to have it at the north end , Everyone using the pitch hire accesses from that area I believe along with the parents of some of the youngsters sit in the north end while waiting  , makes it easy parents sitting in the hub for Tea , snacks etc whilst waiting on there kids extra cash for the Rovers. Also Rovers have a big thing of having the general public away from the main stand/ south out with match days

Pardon my ignorance but what exactly is the Hub thingy at the North end meant to be? I've seen the artists impression of what it would look like but no idea what the intention is behind it. I'd heard murmerings we were going to use the car park at the North end for something as well but no idea for what.

Must admit when sitting in the North Stand for the Betfred cup games and the first game against Hamilton I quite enjoyed the change of scenery however looking out to the South Stand it just 'looks' like a traditional home end with the close proximity of the Main Stand. I felt a bit isolated in the North Stand watching the games however as a one off it was nice to look out to the home end and seeing the fans celebrating.

I'm not sitting anywhere other than the South Stand until they change the typeface on that dreadful "Penman Family Stand" sign that's stuck to its roof. I refuse to look at it. 

It's like something from a Nazi war film :lol:

Nothing like feeling like spewing looking at the Val  McDermid sign. I hope it's ATF for the start of the new season.

Have you boys went hybrid part time? 

Nothing to suggest that so far, but that's not to say it hasn't happened.  Mcglynn made a big thing about being completely full time last season but obviously he's away...
