The New Raith Rovers Thread


Recommended Posts

I’ll hold off until we face the League cup matches before panicking about lack of players.  Of the players gone only Tumilty is a real loss for me but I think we all knew he’d be away regardless of what we offered. Bene was a good servant for us but seemed the right time to move for both parties, Musonda was a decent player but he was rarely first choice and McKay was back up at best. I’m sure Murray has some players lined up and we’ll hear more soon.  Saturday is a kick-about for fitness, yes it’d be nice to have all our business done for that game but it’s not essential.

Doesn’t excuse the fact he let the ball over his head for the first goal and totally lost track of his man, too far up the park for the 2nd goal and never really challenged for the ball, and gets done for the 3rd goal….. pish defender be good if we can get a upgrade this summer 

I was hoping we could have brought James Maxwell in as a starting LB tbh.

Yeah, some sort of toe injury that no-one really knows what can be done about. 

Is he injured at the moment, though, is what I was getting at. Maybe I missed it bit I haven't seen anything about it. 

Someone on here said they'd heard a couple of players had been for minor ops during the break and I think the assumption now is they were Vaughan and Matthews.

I thought Vaughn was due back fairly soon?

FFP saying Vaughan underwent a minor operation which was unrelated to his ACL. It shouldn't need much rehab and that he should be back from it quite quickly and into training again.

The earlier you sign a player, the earlier you pay their wages.
At this time of year players hold the power, give it another couple of weeks and that swings back to the clubs
 
Then you have more interested clubs that haven't had to pay a wage for 2 months of kickabouts.

What's up with Matthews?

Rumoured to have been for an Operation. The procedure should have been done at seasons end but wasn't arranged correctly due to holiday being booked. I suppose this is the kind of f**k up that happens when the manager is leaving and there's nobody in place to take up the slack.

Me too!

 I think we'd have to release Dick for that to happen though.

Anyone going to Dunbar on Saturday and what’s the best way to get there? My Cars off the Road so can’t drive through, what’s the train situation like? 

On the whole bus is the only option, no trains out of Fife but some Transpennine & Cross Country ones running to Dunbar from Edinburgh but none running back after the match.

Oh, I agree…but when/if Lang comes back, he would start over McKay or Bene, at least, and probably Musonda.  Instead, each is now starting for another team.

As for bare, Connolly at RB or Ross at LB would indicate we’re down to the nubs.

Why would you say “if”… he’s well on the way

Should we sign Poplatnik. The guy was really coming on to a game for us. If the budget dictates right enough. The players we’ve signed could be the perfect foil for his style of play.

I think we should tbh, great end to the season, team player, no drama with him and a good professional and if playing every week could hit close to 20 goals for us

20 goals? What are you basing that on? Tea leaves?

Can't help but feel he hit a purple patch. For every good game he had, there were games like the last 2 against Dunfermline where he was terrible, the extent of which he and Varian were poor in the new year game prompted the "our strikers dinnae score" response from Mcglynn which played its part in you know who signing.

A useful player, but not one that completes the strike force, for me.

No on his performances when he finally got a decent run in the team ,as he scored about 11 in all competitions for us last season 👍🏻

Agree with this.

I wouldn't be against signing him but he's not the final piece in the jigsaw. If we are only looking at signing one centre forward I think we need to try and find better.

Him and Lewis would be a great striking partnership.

With Vaughan's injury record I don't think I wouldn't be signing anyone on the basis of what he would be like partnering Vaughan.

Yeah, Vaughan is a bonus player.  The club absolutely have to work on the basis that he isn't available.  If he's fit, great, it's a boost.  But hanging our hat on that and building a squad around him is foolish.
