Raith Rovers vs. Alloa Athletic

Recommended Posts

Any Raith fan pretending that not finishing in a play off place would be acceptable after the spending in January and their consistent league positions this season is simply trying to delude themselves or, like most other Scottish football fans, possibly preparing themselves for a spectacular arse collapse.

An amusing take with not a whit of truth to it...but such is life in the hell that is a Pars fans existence.

I think there’s a bit more truth in it that you think. If we don’t finish in the top 4 now, it’ll be seen as a failure given our season so far.

I wouldn't go as far as to describe it as unacceptable or a failure, but finishing outside the top 4 now would certainly be a tad disappointing.

I would much rather we show ambition in all things rather than complacently under achieving. We need to have goals as well as score them.

Don’t agree at all.
We’d all have taken 7th or 8th before a ball was kicked.
We’d have been pretty delighted with 5th or 6th at that stage too.

But to be sitting where we are now we have to have ambitions of finishing in the play-off spots. It won’t be a disaster to finish 5th or 6th but it will certainly be a disappointment.
If we end up 7th or lower that will be a massive disappointment now that we’ve seen what we’re capable of.

We’ve had some great performances this season where we’ve been scoring goals for fun but recently we’ve had a couple of absolute canings and we seem to have gone off the boil a wee bit. I’m not sure we know our best side at the moment. Hopefully we can get a few points and work out our best side over the next three home games.

I’m looking forward to seeing us back at Starks on Saturday.

Its coming up to a year since we last attended a game there. I can’t really remember the Forfar game on March 7th, but I remember the midweek game with Falkirk on the 3rd March 2020.

The Forfar game was a straightforward win. Cruising along at 2-0 up and then we let them score with pretty much the last kick of the match season.

At the full-time whistle there was a pitch invasion to celebrate deservedly beating Falkirk to the title.

You honestly saying after sitting in roughly third pretty much all season, free scoring for a lot of it against a mainly pishy league that there’s no truth to what I said? Your hatred of the big team and jealousy of the bridie has blinded you.

Nope...I predicted 5th to 7th before the season and remain perfectly happy with it. We got a lot of freebies on the first go around and banked some extra points, the second whip around has been much more challenging as teams now better understand our strengths and weaknesses. Don't like bridies, and without the glasses am pretty blind anyway...

Optimistic about a play off spot, but also very apprehensive at the same time as I well remember what happened the last time we achieved that goal..............we made the play offs at the wrong end of the table the following season and got bleeding relegated

Falling out of the top 4 would obviously hurt and I think anyone saying 5/7th is fine is trying to soften the blow. Saying that, we're obviously missing certain players and have had no consistency in the team over the last few games in any area of the park. Injuries right through the squad have upset us so hopefully when we can start putting a similar starting 11 every week we can start seeing better results again.

What was your preseason prediction?

Preseason prediction has absolutely nothing to do with how any of us would feel now. My preseason prediction was 6th but If we finished 6th now, it would be disappointing

My preseason prediction was a mid-table but we have shown we are capable of playing to a higher level. QoS fans were barely expecting to be competitive this year but I doubt they would be happy with a low finishing position considering their recent results.
