The Champions vs Roaring Raith

Recommended Posts

I assume the 75% or so of Arbroath's typical home crowd that don't attend away matches can't attend for a reason then, rather than them just not being bothered?

I'm sure you can all tell the difference between "can't" and "can't be bothered".  Circumstances dictate the former I'm afraid.

So why generalise the Rovers support when some of them may be in the same boat as yourself?

It must be a bit sickening for Arbroath to have this game on TV on a Sunday! There's no doubt this will reduce the crowd quite significantly and the fact the TV cash is shared equally amongst all the other teams means Arbroath will lost a decent bit of cash! Enjoy yer title winning celebrations all the same and I hope you beat Roaring back 3 fc

 

 

Pretty sure the Money for winning the league will make up for it. ..

 

Nevermind the Championship riches next season.

Do you know what would make for an interesting spectacle - scoring a few goals. After being fairly prolific for the first 16 games, we’ve only managed more than one in the 17 games since on three occasions and gone scoreless in 5 of these. The fact we’ve taken enough points out of these games is testament to our excellent defence - which has also assumed goal scoring duties in addition. They’ve also demonstrated good organisation at the back with the offside trap. The TV viewers not to mention the home support deserve a decent display front and back from the home side - but Raith will have something to prove too.

It would appear there is a fairly distinct correlation between goals scored/ exciting games and who plays upfront for us....... :rolleyes: 

Now the league is won I expect Dick to change things up top and bring back in our non contributing strikers, and I'm afraid the result of that would be a maximum of 3 goals in the 3 remaining games.

You're playing against our defence today so don't worry I think that'll happen.

Why would you set up to try and shitfest a 0-0 draw in a home game when we've already won the league?

We really should be showing more ambition than this IMO.

I thought it would have been obvious! :D

I'd definitely have Omar in our strongest team after the last few weeks, I've never been a huge Omar fan but he's been excellent in the last 2/3 weeks and was absolutely outstanding against Montrose. He's definitely ahead of Danny Denholm in the pecking order currently for me.

Not sure what your injuries are like and how they might affect the game, but our current injury situation is dreadful.

Not looking forward to this in anyway, can we just fast forward to the play offs...

The seethe in the face of Davidson as he stands to applaud the champions onto the park will be worth the entrance price alone IMG_2213.jpg

I’ve absolutely outdone myself and found a boozer on holiday that’s going to show the game. Can’t wait. Buzzing. Biggest game of the season. 6 pointer etc etc etc.
