A third tweet read: "Two criminal convictions and a civil finding of rape. That’s pretty guilty in my book".

She's kind of coming across as a self appointed judge, jury and executioner.


This

Has she written a book on it? Wink

1. Purely on football terms, he's a proven goalscorer and could be the missing link for us.

2. In terms of his chequered past, he has 2 assault convictions from when he was 19 and 21. No convictions in the past 11 years which might suggest that he's matured. Everyone deserves a second chance.

On balance I'd probably be OK either way.


Disagree…has never accepted responsibility or shown any real remorse. Continues to deny.

In some ways this is growing horns.
Even now here in the far north.
Not long in after speaking to relatively new neighbours round the corner. Both retired nurses from NHS Highland, one a ICT supporter the other a Killie man.
Both of them ear bending me big time about this.
Having a pop at the club for even considering the possibility that it might sign him.
Just gies peace. Please!🥺
I'm still sticking to my theory that it's a made up topic by the press to fill column inches or the agent looking for a Christmas bonus should he get him a move from Clyde.

Anybody who abuses a woman is not fit to play for Raith Rovers. It's that simple. Anyone who thinks, acht it was ages ago, let's just move on. I'm not sure I want them as one of my fellow supporters. Val is 100% right here guys.

But that's my point. She's not stating a fact. There was no criminal prosecution.

Anyway. Hopefully its not happening and we move on.

Sorry Keith, but 3 THREE judges ruled out his appeal and upheld the original trial decision. That makes him guilty to me. That said, let us as fans move on and hope there is no truth in the rumours about us bringing him in.

There must be someone better with no baggage.

If he continues to deny it he's not going to show remorse is he? Rolling Eyes

A whole page in today's Courier.
And not a sports page either on this!
Why does the club not just issue a statement denying or confirming interest in signing him?
Dithering and procrastination is just ramping up the press speculation and IMHO putting the club in unwanted headlines and articles!

Dont see any reason for the club to say anything.

Why comment on a player contracted to another club?

Hopefully nothing in it, so need to say anything. Can we let it go?

Reminds me of the the Dad's Army episode when the platoon was holed up for the night in a farm building.
Fraser asks Mainwaring if he he'd heard the tale of the auld empty barn. The reply was no. Would he like to hear the tale of the auld empty barn?
"Ok then Fraser, get on with it"
"Aye!" says Fraser. "Aye well Captain. The tale of the auld empty barn.

There was nuthin' in it! 🙄

Hopefully like all the Goodwillie conjecture.🥴

Daily Record reporting that Mcglynn was asked about the potential signing of Goodwillie, at the end of pars game, and he is reported to have said that he is not getting drawn into that talk.
