Recommended Posts

Apologies for lack of posting. Rob Roy have been very poor recently; had to take a bit of time off.
So far we have played three premiership games. Three defeats out of three.
1: Benburb 2- Roy 0 03/08/19
2: Rutherglen Glencairn 2- Roy 1 07/08/19
3: Hurlford United 3- Roy 0.
10/08/19

We have also played in the sectional league cup 2nd round after qualifying from our group. Another defeat this time to Championship outfit Kilsyth Rangers.

Kilsyth Rangers 3- Roy 2
12/08/19

Very disappointing start to say the least. It can only get better...

Four league defeats out of four you mean. You lost 2-0 at home to Cumnock as well yesterday.

For a team to be playing away every game for so long now it must be affecting them badly. Having to pay rent with no income through a shop or bar I do not know how the club can survive in the top league you have to take your hat of to the committee and the management team hopefully they will be in their new ground soon.

I'm not a roy supporter but what I was led to believe they would have been in their new ground within 2years of moving from adamslie which was just over 5 seasons ago but they hit complications through council planning then the council withdrawing funding when all the austerity measures rolled in all over Scotland then the land they were promised was put up for sale to the highest bidder . I would say that's not the committees fault more the local council that's let them down ? When their new ground will start being built who knows!

I stand to be corrected, but i believe it was 2007 when the move was first proposed....

And they had the proceeds from Adamslie,  why was it up to the council?

The land they were getting was being gifted by the council so when austerity kicked in the council had to put it up for sale to the highest bidder. As for the money from adamslie it's ring fence for the new ground but because the council pulled out it meant they couldn't build the ground to the original plan. As I said I'm only getting this information from people I talk to from Rob Roy .

Don’t post here often but feel it’s a case of kicking Roy when there down.

 

There is members of the committee that work tirelessly to keep the club going. Neil does a lot of work behind the scenes and anyone that comes to the games from all supports is always complimentary of him. 

 

 On the park Maxi has done an excellent job. Since moving to Cumbernauld and in the last few seasons he has achieved;

League cup winners

West of Scotland finalists 

Premier league runners up (3 points off the title!)

2 x Scottish quarter finals 

Keeping club in the Premier league.

 

Unfortunately this season we have just lost too many first choice players (6 that played in the West final) and just really struggled to replace them. 

 

Dismal on the park this season and so far look poorer than the side that got relegated so I am fearing the worst but won’t give up hope. 

 

Hope maxi and the players can pull it back.

At a KRR game last season June was the date stated for things moving forward, seeing the total silence around anything happening then its probably fair to assume that they haven't started the physical work yet.

Think we need to get a few experienced guys in as squad had a lot of youngsters in it. Struggle is they will all be tied up with clubs . I have been to the first few games and looks poor to honest

Another two games down; another two defeats.

Pollock 5- Rabs 1
21/08/19

Rabs 1- Clydebank 2
24/08/19

We are a complete mess. Team is filled with players who aren’t good enough for this level. Sadly I don’t see how we get out of this mess this season.
6 Games. 6 defeats. Embarrassing

we were well on top until we gifted you a goal back. Rabs then sensed a wee chance and had some chances to equalise. Correct result though ... 

Does look like it'll be a long season for you
