    Aye, only if the better half approves!

    Moving on to Wednesday and what is already a huge game for the BU's. Up against the only team to challenge Kelty last season and indeed beat them three times! This year, things may be different. They have lost some important players due to cost-cutting and may also miss two players from yesterday's team due to red cards. We have to get off to a winning start and build momentum. The easy league many foresaw just isn't going to happen. Look at Crossgates for example! I'm sure big Hunts was getting saved for midweek and the goal-machine that is Allan Mackenzie, 2 in 3 now, will likely start. C'mon the BU's!

    He 'retired' due to injury. Then made a miraculous recovery to sign for Lithgae.

    No thanks. Dodgy back, in his thirties and no loyalty.

    We could even afford a missed penalty from Will! If anyone is thinking of derisory comments over the type of teams we are playing, just remember we have hit double figures twice in the last 5 years or so against such wonderful junior sides as Portgordon & Stoneyburn. This was a Cup match and will not be replicated on a regular basis in the League. The Tweedmouth 'keeper made some inspired saves and had a fair deal of luck too. For me MOM was Marty Wright. He led the line well, creating the first and getting a couple himself. Was unlucky with other efforts too, including one off the bar. I know it seems strange not giving it to Ross Campbell, after all it's not often a centre-back scores a hat-trick but Marty just pips him.

    Seems like a good day for a game so far. Hope we have signed up our two 'trialists' in time for the game.

    It was all so believable, then you had to spoil it.

    Just to hark back to yesterdays game for a moment. How easy were some of their players to bait? Numbers three, five and our old failure James McAteer all indulged in backchat to a degree they were most certainly losing concentration. Will came in for some criticism for what some saw as a 'stupid' booking, when he took out their number three. I would like to see the positive side in that at least it wasn't a card for backchat as is normally the case.

    I got my wish and what a difference he made. Great to see Marc Kelly back as well and I hope they don't mess about in signing him up. One of the most one-sided matches I can recall & Oakley very lucky to have only conceded three. Hard to pick out a top performer as no failures but Gemmell just shades it from Campbell. A big shout out to Syme who is a great no-nonsense left-back.

    It's a game we have to win. Have we the energy, determination & fire-power to do so? Would really like to see Marty back tomorrow.

    The guys started showing much more energy than at the weekend. Their passing was sharper and more accurate too. It took a while but the deserved goal came and we really should have had the game won at half-time. It was strange that 2 of the 3 subs who came on were older than the players replaced, so our energy levels weren't going to improve! In the end only a one on one save by Marshall won us the game but it would have been criminal for us not to. Several players showed good form. Dev & Syme were both solid at full-back. Big Aldin won everything in the air and has a decent left foot too. Gemmell was everywhere as usual, getting stuck in and MacKenzie up front had a good game despite receiving no protection from the ref. MOM though has to be Morgan. Made one and scored one, he is beginning to look like a replacement for Steve Pittman.

    Is that short for 'For The Fourth Year'?
  13. Bo'ness United 2018/19

    I suppose the fact he was so close to McGonigal goes against him. Cannot imagine him getting the bullet this early. Who would you choose at this late juncture anyway? Dealt a blow with Scott walking away but has to address the other issues soon.
  14. Bo'ness United 2018/19

    We had him on loan from East Stirling a few years back. The way things are going we'll be looking to bring back Joe Savage

    Maybe I have too high standards but after speaking to others after the game, I can assure you the consensus of opinion was no improvement from last season......and that's me being kind.
