I suspect the feeling around GOODWILLIE’S release will now be reflected in the attendance figures at Stark’s Park…oh wait, the average attendance didn’t change while he was on the books during the “outrage”. Just your classic fickle football fans bumping their gums on social media for attention the last number of months.  

Being angry at your club signing a rapist should never be mocked. 

It was the strong actions of those fans that ensured he never played for your club, be thankful for them.

 

Outwith the football loyalties I found the reaction of some people troubling, this isn't a Fife Derby thing, I just thought that people were united in there condemnation of Goodwillies behaviou, It's a damning indictment of sociect that some were willing to overlook his past issues, because he might score some goals. 

I can almost guarantee that his signing for any championship club last January would've outed out a decent proportion of wrong 'uns within a support. It's a shame for Rovers that one of those was Sim.

Nothing has changed. There's still been no accountability, no recognition of failings, and the people who treated us with such absolute contempt - not even so much with the initial decision but in the aftermath of it - are mostly still on the board.

f**k them.

You haven't changed.

f**k you.

Gutted to see Mitchell away out on loan however still at a reasonable level albeit I feel he has the ability to play at a higher level from the limited opportunities he’s had in particular away against the pars last season. Would have liked Arnott to have stayed within the professional league set up but game time is a must I guess.

I feel we now need at least 2 in. Big John surely got to be announced soon if he does indeed get the thumbs up however still need more depth out wide.

Decent loan for Mitchell, if he gets time. He’s the third forward on the Rose named Kieran!

Must have missed him saying that. Surely we should be looking to send Mahady out before Mitchell as Mitchell has a chance to do something in the game. I understand game time but no point having Mahady on our bench when he's clearly not good enough. 

I expect Mahady is for the chop, as even Cowden last season didn’t play him. I expect he’ll be off to HL/LL soon enough, I don’t think they have window limits.

Think Murray is looking longer term with Mitchell and Arnott, they are our 2 best young players.  Get them first team football in physical leagues for a season and bring them back for next season a bit more battle hardened.

Essentially it’s a win win for the Rovers , Arnott , Mitchell out on loan playing against very experienced pros in the lower leagues then hopefully on there return we get a vastly improved player ready for 1st team action.

Happy Christmas, everyone.
Support the team away from home only. That's my option of late.

Neither is signed beyond this year, BTW.

Tell me did you boycott Starks Park or Broadwood when we played Clyde and DG was playing.

I've not been to Starks Park since December 2021 even though I had my season ticket. I have no interest in David Goodwille when he was at Clyde so why would I boycott Broadwood.

Possibly because the skipper was a rapist.

Absolutely pathetic. Happy for him to play in the Scottish league for over 5 years and captain an opposition team but as soon as he signed for us all he'll breaks loose. Maybe if you and others spoke out when he was at Clyde expressed your views then we may never have signed him.

We did when there were rumours in December. The board chose to ignore it.

So every fan of a club who have played at Broadwood for the last 5 years have to boycott them. Give it over, your having a laugh. I'm sure you did also.

That's not what I'm saying. Your basically boycotting Starks Park for the signing of DG however you were happy to go to Starks and Broadwood when he was fucking playing, captaining there team. Never opened your mouth in disgust. What I'm saying is get over it and Start supporting your club. They need money through the turnstiles every week.

That's exactly what you are saying. What difference do we make not attending an away match because of one player in the opposition team. If he had your attitude to everything you state then we all should have boycotted Livingston and Aberdeen when a player who seriously assaulted someone plays. Where does it end.

Jesuschristalmighty can we not drag all this tiresome "did you boycott Clyde as well?" shite up again?

He's away. Let people make their decisions. No-one's business but their own. Pipe doon.

If its no one else's business then why do they go on a forum spouting about it as if it's a badge of honour? Anyway I'm sure they'll get their reward when King Charlie's honours list is announced.
