Playoff Final - Raith v Queens / Queens v Raith

Recommended Posts

We didn’t play very well, and looked particularly looked poor after we took Dobbie, Dykes and Todd off, but there is clearly a sizeable gulf between the Championship and the First Division.
Rovers will have to go for it at Palmerston, which should play into our hands. As the aforementioned trio will all be fit to start, I just can’t see us not scoring. Given it’s Queens, I’m reluctant to say its game over, but we’re in a great position to stay up now.
Major surgery required on the squad over the summer if we hope to be competitive in the Championship next season though.
In what fucking previous incarnation has the 3rd tier been called the first division?

It's not really though.

Copying the English league names makes absolutely no sense though, and will continue to confuse thicker folk. They still have to separate entities (EPL/EFL) so winning the EFL Championship in the second tier makes sense, it's just stupid for the SPFL Championship to be a second tier. That's a different discussion though.

 

Raith still have a chance, but I cant see them scoring 3 goals without conceding, and that will be their issue.

Harsh. It’s called League One. Division is a thing of the past these days, what with equality and all.

Only a fucking dribbling idiot would call it as such. If anything it'd be the second division.

Also, I've literally never seen anyone call it the first division until now. Maybe I've been lucky.

Idiot.

You’ve been “lucky” you haven’t heard someone wrongly referring to the name of a league in the wrong fashion? And respond in the first instance that you do by branding someone “a dribbling idiot”? 

Do you sometimes worry you take things too seriously?

The last three years as a Rovers fan have been miserable. Just have a fucking go Saturday.  We are staying down so at least go out in a blaze of glory, not with a whimper.
I think every fan agrees with you. Unfortunately with McGlynn in charge it just will not happen.

Anyone still heading to Dumfries on Saturday?

I'll decide nearer the time. Given our unspectacular away form I feel it's a wasted trip, but I'd kick myself if some crazy turn of events saw us getting promoted.

QoS look shaky at the back, but our defensive woes were there for all to see last night.

It ain’t over til it’s over, Rover(s). I’ve watched Queens lose 3 goals in 25 mins v Alloa,  v Crusaders, and v ICT at Palmerston this season. With our defence the opposition always has a chance. Should be a nervy cracking game on Saturday. Would have thought there will be goals. I hope AJ keeps to his front foot policy and takes the game to Raith. His positivity has been a major plus for us in the last couple of games.

Certainly not it being called the first division.
And I think you're initial response was foam at the mouth type stuff, are you OK?

No, he's not. 
 
Christophe is the League 2 version of VT. Goes full foaming at the chops, then claims it was all a jokey windup. 
Ah OK. Ignore button in play now.

We just won 1-3 yet you constantly post negative pish. Imagine we had lost :unsure:

It’s called satire lighten up. Obviously I’m pleased we won.

But our defence.

MOTM was voted through the Raith app, SAM McGuff wasn’t far off winning it, more evidence the public shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

Ref seems a bit card happy (Crane apart) against us. Make a challenge for the ball and  miss time it =  yellow card, blatantly shove a player going for the ball = nothing.

MotM is normally chosen by people in hospitality, they are members of the public but usually drunk and mostly get things right, bring back dinking at the football.

Why bother following football if you're not going to make the trip to Dumfries?

 

You don't finish 9th in a terrible Championship, with a 40+ goal striker, because you're good at defending or able to cope with pressure.

 

This Rovers side is far from perfect, but neither are Queens. This tie is by no means finished.

I was watching at home and noticed we have McGuff and McGuffie on the bench. Not sure what was on the park. Guff?

#roaringroundincircles

I like that one.

Is this going to be the game where our away form changes?

I’ve never been to Palmerston so this would be a good occasion to cross it off the list.

This. We probably won’t come back but imagine if we do? You don’t get too many high points supporting the Rovers, that’s one you’d always regret not being there for.
