Stevie Aitken on pundit duty at the Raith Queen of the South game on Alba tonight.
Wonder if he'll mention turning Kevin Nisbet into the player he is today...
Edit: Mentioned us having injuries approximately 30 seconds into speaking 
I'm enjoying the wee man contributing piercing insights in the way only a Rolls Royce employee can do.

The OS has been painfully quiet in so far as any squad/manager updates or pre season marketing. We’re playing catch up here in comparison to other clubs.

He really has added absolutely nothing that literally anyone on this forum couldn't add. It's as bad as Derek Ferguson.

It’s been fascinating listening to an evening of Aitken’s platitudes. I’m hardly surprised we were so uninspiring during his time in charge given his contributions tonight.

You can imagine the entirety of his team talks just being "bit more quality on the ball and a bit more effort and we'll be right back in this".

Wee bit concerning to see Froxy's agent saying on the Facebook group that he knows no players have been offered deals yet by the club. Given they all had decent seasons I'd say that we're reducing our chances of keeping Carsy, Forbes, The SeaGal and Bobby Barr quite literally by the hour. Duffy really needs to get a move on and decide if he's sticking around or not. He must know by now. Surely.

Did Stevie Aitken just say losing 2-1 tonight would be a good result for Raith?

This quote from the Raith/QoS match thread sums up Stevie Aitken's footballing philosophy perfectly.

Here's what the Raith fans thought, Stevie.

Well that's massively encouraging.

I've no idea how long he's away for but I'd be surprised if he gives his decision before he returns. I may well be wrong but I just can't see it.

Either way, I can't help but thinking all this fannying around could cost us, especially if Duffy can't be arsed staying.

Who says it’s duffys fault? With all the speculation around the clubs finances, perhaps it’s more to do with our directors trying to drag some money out of our owners?

Given that Brabco haven't put a penny into the club in *checks calendar* the 11 years they've been involved I can't see that changing now. Especially given their pie-in-the-sky Stadium idea has been rejected, and they've started acting like weans about the lighting plans for the Castle.

It feels to me like Duffy is waiting to see if a more attractive job comes up somewhere.

I'm wary of his motive. He has no connection to us other than Froxy, he's not a Dumbarton fan, yet he's on there nearly in tears because this "great wee club" is apparently on its way to the wall. I'm wary of where his info is coming from and the motive behind it.

He's Kyle Hutton's agent too, but aye I get the point. The latter part of his comment reeked of attention seeking/someone trying to create a panic, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if the contract part was true.

Someone fancy flying out to find Duffy and ask him? I'm sure we could all chip in towards the plane ticket :lol:

He even managed to massage his ego in the same post with his "to think only 18 months ago MY LAD FROXY scored that screamer and put you in a cup final" comment. If Kyle Hutton's not been offered a deal then that's fine with me...

The season officially finishes (for us lower league diddies) this weekend.  If we go into next week without hearing a peep then I'll start to worry about who's been offered what. So far since confirming our safety in League 1 we've had folk tell us that the police are investigating the club, the FCA are investigating the club, folk are stealing money via the Trust and now we're apparently going to the wall for f**k knows what reason.  There are folk out there with some right weird stuff on their agendas.

The whole of G82 are eternally grateful to Alex the Agent or sending us on the path to Cup final defeat. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I hate it when people bring up the Cup final. Getting there was a fantastic achievement, but the way we played on the day still really gets to me. Plus I spent the night of the TNS game watching it on my phone in an Italian restaurant :bairn

Does it make me a paranoid weirdo that I think there might be a few people with personal grudges against DFC/people at DFC who are spreading these stories?

Aye, i'm pretty sure this agent fella is a bellend.  Wouldn't trust a word that he mentions.  Wasn't he one of the guys sticking up for Aitken before?

You aren't paranoid, that is very much the reality.

I can't say for certain, but there are a few obvious candidates for me. All ex-employees...
