    Ah, rumours. We've not been entirely successful in our transfer dealings so far, so will wait until a name is on the team-sheet before getting excited. The way this year is going, it could by Hissy making a comeback!

    Great minds think alike.......................or is it fools seldom differ!

    Have to say, young Gillespie looks the part in that position. He has a good sense of positioning, can pass and tackle well and can cross a mean ball (witness the Hunter goal at Lochee!) Not sure if he is a natural at left-back but looks the part.

    At this moment we need him in midfield, as we are short of players there. Donnelly's injury, Cropley's departure and the disappearance of Comrie have left us light in the middle. Even if Dev prefers full-back, I must admit to preferring Gemmell there.

    You missed nothing. Just the usual shite from BBB and Sheep , discussing wee rose matters.

    Thought I was at the Kyle Hall show today! The ref was really poor in his decision-making. Failed to even talk to Forfar players in the first half when fouls committed and seemed as useless as his enclosure linesman. Only 'mad' Jack escapes criticism on the official front. You could sense the ref was champing at the bit to give something against Bo'ness but the big number 9 shot over, probably embarrassed at the refs performance. A little flat after last week but 3 points was the important thing. I agree on Jacobs as MOTM. He can't half jump for a wee man! Shirra has made a real difference to the middle of the park, showing calm, intelligence and vision. Make no mistake, today was a big win and whilst nobody is fooled into thinking we are now world-beaters, we do seem to have turned a corner.

    Saturday's game is so important. To get back to back league wins would be a major boost and it is what used to be known as a six-pointer. We have done the right thing in sending 3 of the Accies back but it is a sore point that we keep Marshall, who is a good 'keeper but only temporary, to the exclusion of Andy Murphy. The big lad was terrific for us last season and I especially remember his performance at Nitten saving us a point. We could end up like we did last season. Accies recall marshall or are tempted to transfer him. By that time, Andy could be away and we are left scrambling looking for a keeper. We have our own 'keeper now. We should be playing him.

    Can't see Donnelly back for a couple of months. Keast hasn't been fully fit for a while now but keeps getting a game off the bench when it would be great to rest him. Marty coming back is a big thing. Always capable of the unexpected and a constant pest to defences. It has to be said that Callum Scott has been a star lately and I say that after having severely doubted him early in the season. Keep it up Callum!

    Hope he is available. He is proving a valuable addition to the squad and can cross a great ball. Something we have missed for a while.

    Prediction skills way out there. Mind, I was fearing the worst myself. Bo'ness don't normally get a result at Thomson Park in a good season, so in a poor one, this was a nice surprise.

    In Hunter & Shirra today we had two leaders. Never heard Andy as much as I did today. This was easily the best performance of the season by the BU's. Gillespie had a cracking game before his head knock in 2nd half. He can deliver a really good cross. Shirra bossed the midfield and his crisp passing seemed to lend an air of confidence to the team. Hunter surprised me, I'll admit. Won everything he went for and scored on his debut too! Really pleased for Ryan Millar. He took some unjustified stick last week for missing some good chances but at least he was in the right position. This week, these chances were tucked away. Not going to get carried away. I mean, even the wee rose beat Lochee but if we show the same team spirit in the weeks ahead, we'll soon climb the table.

    We have nothing to lose today (bar 3 points). Let's go for it no matter who is in the side! Third trip up that way already this season and still have Brechin, Broughty, Carnoustie & Forfar to come
  14. Bo'ness United 2017/18

    We certainly need a leader but seriously, is this the best AMCG can do? First Walker, now Hunter. What with the re-signing of Shirra, I can only imagine he has now got Darren Gribben in his sights!

    What's the general feeling for this weekend? A trip to Lochee United at any time rarely bears fruit. A definite top v bottom clash but what will our tactics be? I don't feel we have a strong enough defence to play for a point and recent evidence would suggest we are unlikely to outscore a decent team. So, is it a question of keeping it respectable? Or will the lads surprise us all by pulling it together? God, I hope so.
