Which is fair, but more that it wasn't a two up front and really, we'd already been panicking against a frankly quite pish QP team.

I genuinely have no issue with other teams fans calling us pish. Not precious whatsoever. The worrying thing for your mob is that it could have been 5 or 6 nil today. 
 

Conor McBride ffs!

They looked as good as any other team I've seen us play in the league so far.

You're talking utter shite

While you're obviously correct with this being the rule I think it might not apply to Goodwillie at all, because it's entirely possible he wasn't actually registered as a player.

If Raith, knowing they would never play him, actually didn't have him registered as a player while still having him on the books then the rules around windows are irrelevant. He was obviously still employed by them past the end of the window, but if he wasn't registered as a Raith Rovers player at any point through the summer then he's effectively been a free agent, in the same way that eg the Raith kit man is employed by Raith but not registered as a player.

If a kitman's employment was terminated today and another club for some reason wanted him as a player there'd be no barrier to registering them because they've not actually been registered to their previous club as player. If that's been the case with Goodwillie then he actually could sign for anyone, although it's a moot point as surely no one is going be stupid enough to do so.

This might, just might, be the biggest load of tripe I've ever read on P&B. Quite the accolade! 

How exactly do you think they managed to loan him to Clyde if he wasnt registered? Which he was anyway, before they announced his signing.

The loan was last season. Do you not need to re-register a squad every season? It is surely possible that we didn’t register him as a player this season as there was no intention of ever playing him.

Having watched the highlights back, I am indeed. Despite not showing either of Eze’s free headers from inside the 6 yard box, 4-2 seems more realistic.

Cheers for leaving a can of tennents on the train, it was downed before I got to the waverley 😂

No you dont. You register a player for the duration of his contract the minute you sign him.

Not according to the SFA registration process they don’t.

Rather than providing a link to an entire document would you care to quote the particular part you think contradicts what I said? If indeed you are contradicting it and not agreeing with it, its not 100% clear.

Either way, what I said was accurate.

Good idea if it is going to save the clubs cash. At least as well, they are gauging fan opinion on it first. Would expect a few clubs to follow suit. Obviously there won’t be a 100% yes/no either way. There will be people with jobs or have kids that play games on a Saturday morning that won’t want it, so it will be interesting to see how the votes go.

Murray must know our current forward line isn't fit for purpose. Connolly, Easton, Stanton and Brown are as likely to score. That said, I agree with him that we don't get the wee breaks n front of goal that other teams have been getting against us.

Well, I'd imagine that's why he's trying to bring a striker in.

From the Ayr thread... 

Makes sense for clubs to do it. The cost of putting the floodlights on must be through the roof now.

I'm intrigued as to how we deal with it.  Sim was quite vocal that the community foundation was doing better than the footballing side. Nobody will really know how much liability the club will have over utilities for that. We might move our kickoff times,  but what happens on weeknights when the community foundation events are on? 

 

It's nice to see clubs are open to change on this.

In our last game against Ayr, they smacked the inside of the post at 1-0. What goes around comes around. 

As for the forward issue, that's all on him and that's a decent chance it will cost him his job in the end.

I don't know how busy pitch hire etc has been so I can't really comment although that will likely change over winter with the floodlights on at night more.

I did think twice about putting it that way, for that very reason
