It's the reason why we lost Kieran McDonald last year so possibly.

The club have been offering support to players for life after football so may be down to that.

Yeah, that would make sense. 

If it's not happened I'm not asking to create shit as it's not my style so leave it at that.

Good luck next season.

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. 

Think its facilities for the community use of the pitch - toilets, changing facilities, cafe, offices etc.... You can have a look at the plans on the fife council planning website and theres floorplans and stuff there. Details lodged against the planning application

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...

I did wonder if it would be back on the agenda this season.

I don't like that some folk are turning against Zanatta. After being a standout he was heavily marked in games but even then looked like he could get goals out of nothing. I don't see anything amiss in his attitude as was predicted when he came.

I'd be quite happy if we went for the hybrid model again. Arbroath have shown how well it can work at this level.

 

Trolling aside, it would give us the option to get the better pt players in while still being able to sign ft players. Both spells under mcglynn we had that model at some stage and it served us pretty well. 

 

@Raith_Raverzannata is 100% a confidence player. If you get him full of confidence he is a standout at this level. The problem is keeping him at that level. He does also need a fullback who will support him so he doesn't get doubled up on constantly though. We've had far worse players than him playing for us in recent seasons.

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. ;)

 

Aye that's right leave the main stand for the old bogeys

The main stand that gets Hehaw improvements or 2nd thoughts even from the directors

And that'll be many of the old fogeys who were supporting Raith long before you were born given the disrespectful tone of your text

The same fogeys who helped  baile out Raith years ago during the Gordon Brown appeal  and like myself have paid for seasons from when Bert Herdsman was manager (well maw bought them for a wee while)and bought shares for no gain and no doubt paid a fair bit into the Andy Milne fund

So sunshine put your brain into gear before engaging your typing finger

Yea, I realise that. What I'm getting at is the predictions of Partick and Ayr fans about his attitude and lack of application, which some on here have been influenced by. I get the full back support bit, but I haven't seen any suspicion of lack of application.

I do get frustrated by his tendency to put good chances over the bar, something he needs to work on.

Agreed you can't really fault his effort. I didn't think he would be a good signing but I think over the course of the season he has been and am happy to admit I was largely wrong on that one.

First a sensible management appointment (potentially) now this. It seems like we're making good steps again. 

Really hope so. Change doesn't happen overnight, but we have the director that came in a couple of months ago and we've one of the old guard out. I remember a few months back there was a hint that there would be change, so perhaps this was part of it. 

Now, can Inverness win and give us another reason to celebrate tonight?

Allegedly season ticket prices will be frozen with £20 discount for early bird and £10 discount on concessions

Probably fair, let’s be honest been a pretty turbulent season off the pitch with a fair bit of drama between the board and fans over the obvious signing.   New manager in, changers in the board room and with that all combined with the cost of living increase I think freezing the price is a reasonable gesture from the BOD.

What are you actually expecting as improvements?. It's an old stand. Do you want a big window across it or something to keep out the cold.

I'm glad we won't have St Johnstone with parachute money to contend with in the new season. I'm not bothered by this ICT "hoodoo", our bad luck against them has to change sometime and I see no reason why it won't change this time around.
