Playoff Final - Raith v Queens / Queens v Raith

Recommended Posts

Congrats to Queens, thoroughly deserved to go through. Thought they were very professional yesterday and looked comfortable throughout. Kept us at arms length all day, we were never able to build any pressure and Queens were always more likely to score, particularly second half.

For us, I don’t think you can blame tactics or effort, we were just found wanting in quality. Hardly surprising given the season we have had. We couldn’t finish above Forfar and Arbroath over 36 games and in the 14 games we played against the top 4 in League One we only managed 4 wins. A two legged tie against a Championship side was always likely to be a step too far for this squad.

I am confident the board and management will have prepared for either outcome from the play offs so hopefully we will have an announcement shortly on how we move forward regarding full time/part time. We are a couple of weeks behind some teams in starting our preparations for next season so hope we move fast to confirm plans and JM can start talking to players.

Finally, I thought the support were excellent yesterday. Never stopped singing all day even though there wasn’t much happening on the park to give them encouragement.

Last season aside, Davidson has consistently been one of our poorest players in the years he's been here. 

He is however due a testimonial which provides a nicer goodbye than telling him to f**k off. Best of both worlds.

Do Raith fans not have their own dedicated thread to discuss who they'll keep etc?

Most of the recent stuff in this, the match thread, has little to do with the match.

Davidson, Dundee fans disliked... I quite liked him... his record stands of being on the winning side more than the losing side...
Instead we now have a team of shitebags.

Nothing else fo add

I've got loads of time for Iain Davidson, always have done.

However, we'll be working from a small squad. Murray, Benedictus and McKay give us a solid three for the two centre half positions. In addition, we need to go and get at least two natural full-backs. I don't see how there's space in the squad left for Davidson.

Our defensive record has been abysmal all year, but nobody has been settled or playing their natural game. Every single match we've had someone filling in and everyone else trying to cover for them, or trying to adapt to another change in goalkeeper.

Swapping Davidson (or Benedictus, or Murray) for another natural centre half would hardly have helped at all this season.

Our faults have stemmed more from the players we don't have than the ones we do.

Your 2 center backs were excellent as was your goalkeeper .

Davidson the pick of the 2 but the only thing with him was his fitness .For a full time player he really struggled in the last 15 mins.

You did not really have a goal threat over the 2 games for large spells of both games Queens were in total control .

I think they're trying to cling onto the Championship forum as long as possible.

Hoped for an exciting nail-biter yesterday but ultimately it looked like Raith just lacked invention, and even urgency.
Enjoyed the keeper, Davidsons and Benedictus' performances, and sadly looks like McGuffie continues to be the star of training sessions and not games. There is also no shame in Dobbie still managing to find himself facing goal 30 yards out from time to time, the guy is just a joy to watch.
Well done Queens for staying up in the end, I look forward to Ayrs routinely getting f all from you at Palmerston again next season
