The New Raith Rovers Thread


Recommended Posts

I've heard Murray tried to sign Doidge on loan from Hibs and Marc McNulty but couldn't get either of them to agree i.e. we couldn't afford them basically. Maybe he's setting the bar a wee bit too high there but kudos for trying. 
I heard that he's going after targets which we realistically have little chance of getting but wants to try and see if he can sell the club to them. So that rumour would make perfect sense.

With doidge going to Killie, I’ve got a bad feeling we will be 1 of a few clubs to go in for innes Cameron on loan and I’ll be worried if we do end up signing him as his goal scoring record is a bit rank and that’s something we don’t need is another 5-8 goal a season striker

I don't think we necessarily need a goal machine of a striker although it would be nice.

What we are after is someone to bully defenders knock things on for people and who has a bit of experience for the players we have to feed off. 

I think it'll be a loan after the window and gamble on Vaughan returning (I know) who had good link up play with Gullen previously.

Heard a rumour a couple of weeks ago about a striker from Killie. Thoughts were Cameron and yet people moan if someone like Stevie May is mentioned. I agree we need a physical presence but we need a number 9 more. Someone that can put the ball in the net.

And neither of those mentioned are that.

Is that allowed seeing as we already have Connell on loan to us from Killie? Genuine question, I'm not sure on the rules re loans and how many you're allowed from same club.

Fairly certain you can have 2 loans from a club provided they aren’t in the same league. Partick have McKinnon and Weston from Rangers and Morton have Schwake and Kabia from Livingston.

Yeah you could have 2 loans from the same club from the league above a few years ago when we went down we had Thomson and Hardie both from rangers so it does happen

I think our loans have a 1 in 3 success rate at the minute. ORiordan thankfully has been a roaring success, in fairness he'd still be getting game time even if he wasn't. 

Ngwenya is a strange one, Liam Dick seems to have reinvented himself over the summer and Young looks capable but needs development. 

Connell could come onto a game but at the minute we're not getting the most out of him. 

Compared to the permanent signings Nolan is solid, Easton is up there with the best players in the league when he's on form and Brown has been invaluable. 

Millen the jury is still out for me, he was much improved against Hamilton but has been lacking in other games, I also foresee he will become the boo boys go to player.
