Playoff Final - Raith v Queens / Queens v Raith

Recommended Posts

Lucky then that Queens have a 2 goal lead
True, but Charlton did go 2 up in the early stages, as did Leeds the other night. Clutching at straws I know, but it's all we've got really...

I'm actually feeling pretty confident which is of course worrying in itself.

Christ, that is terrifying.

Yep add me to the list as well.

We have given ourselves a reasonable cushion, but we achieved it with a fairly dreadful performance the other night. My concern is the players think it is job done and another equally poor performance will suffice. I can’t see Raith being as bad and us being as lucky two games in a row.

Raith will score that’s almost certain. If it’s the first goal then we are in for a horrible afternoon.

As always Dobbie being on a one man mission to drag us out of the mire is our best chance of a relaxed afternoon.

Either way it’s going to be a nice feeling at the final whistle to have this season over and done with.

Yeah that's about the size of it.

Even pessimists might conclude that the odds are in our favour, but perhaps not forever if we go behind this afternoon.

If we lead at all in this match, it'll surely feel a bit more relaxing. I can't see last week's comfort being repeated though.  

Nobody expects this to finish goalless, so we are probably relying on scoring.  That's come fairly easily just lately, but it was a problem for long enough beforehand.

You clearly haven't seen us away from home this season. We can be even worse than Wednesday night.

McGlynn has to go for it today and I'd love him to make some bold sections like dropping Davo. Unfortunately he won't especially given his tactics and post match interview on Wednesday night. We'll play the same formation with maybe one or two like for like replacements.

I'm not unduly optimistic but think you are being a bit unkind to Raith there.  They played well and had us under the sort of pressure I would have expected a confident team to produce on their own patch, but we defended a fair bit better than of late and the goals we scored were pretty decent too. I thought Raith were unlucky to be 3 down and deserved to at least have some chance for todays game. Its not all over by any means but if we play like we have in the past couple of games I think it'll be pretty difficult for Raith to get what they need from the game.

Sorry if this has been asked and answered already, but where is best for some food before the game? Pub grub is fine.

I went to Munich when we were 2-0 down from the first leg. Why not Dumfries.

Why are Queens on a panic trip? We have by far the worst goalie and defence I’ve seen in years. Christ even shite like Lee Robinson is a superstar compared to Lyness

Because that team that played at Munich are a universe in difference to this lot. Hopefully I’ll be eating my words at the end of the game. But sadly I won’t.

I've a sneaking suspicion your opponents that day might have been a tad stronger than today's too.

Blind optimism setting in. However expect to be in a hoor of a mood come 6pm. I'll be watching on Alba while setting up for tonight's gig here in London while explaining to the folk I'm with why two teams they've never heard of are so tightly woven into just how happy I'll be for the rest of day.

If mcglynn turns this round today it will surpass anything he's achieved before at the club.

The team are a mess, the defence has shipped goals time and again, the goalkeeper us questionable at best and the options in midfield are poor. Also from Wednesday night that second half performance of just launching balls at a small striker was just fucking pointless, we were only 2 down in a game we could have competed in had they not just decided f**k it we'll settle for this.

This game is all about mind games 

We have to go with the right attitude forget about the 1st game treat it as a one off Cup Tie .

My worry is that some Queens players will think it is done we must be at it as a team and every player must give 100 % Raith will be right up for this have nothing to lose which makes them even more dangerous  .

I am really worried about this Johnston must get his team talk right as well must get in the players heads get them to listen

In the middle with this one, not really confident or worried. If we go 1-0 up or 0-0 at half time then great. But if Raith score first then I hope we don't start getting deeper and invite trouble, especially with our defence.

Our players definitely won't be thinking this game is over. They have no right to.

I know, i’m just fooling myself. If i’m being honest then I’d say I have little faith in the current Rovers team. We’d need a lucky turn of events like their ‘keeper getting sent off and the ref giving us an early penalty.

The consensus view among my circle of pals is ‘nope, let’s watch it in the pub, then FA Cup Final’.

I’ll have my lunch then decide whether to drive down or not.

I don’t think I’m being unkind to Raith at all given the overall pessimistic tone of my post. I’m very much viewing this as a 50/50 game having watched us throw in 2+ goals with relative ease this season.

Neither team shone the other night. Both looked poor at the back and low in confidence/ideas. We scored our best chances (bar one glaring miss that might still cost us) whereas Raith fluffed their lines. It could quite easily have been a draw, or a narrow lead for Raith.

It really is down to the order the goals go in as I fully expect both teams to score. If it’s us first then barring a huge collapse we are home and dry. If it’s Raith then I’ll be watching through my fingers.
