  1. A very informative and excellent report on yesterday's game with great pics Dukla....impressed! Well done. You will be made very welcome at Park View if you wanted to report on any of our games. Oh and please be assured that our gates are open for admission at least an hour before kick-off!
  2. Great response from ALL the lads yesterday who dug in and fought for everything for the whole game. Only setback for us was the red card for Dunny......which in my opinion was the ref evening things off as he could've picked any 1 from about 4 or 5 to send off during the "mass gathering" near the end. The double save from the Tranent keeper at the end was top class and kept them in the game. You're spot on a fantastic game for the neutrals but not for my heart especially the last 5 mins!! Anyways well done to all for getting us back on track...and a great 3 points. Mussy go to Tranent in 3 weeks and that will be a tough game for them also.... Go the Hoose!!
  3. Thanks for your concern Burnie Man....I am still alive and well. I would've posted last Sunday if I wasn't away for a few days (holiday weekend et all) to congratulate Blackburn on their excellent performance at Park View last week, yes I was disappointed by the Hoose performance last week but fair play to Blackburn who thoroughly deserved all 3 points. It will be interesting in 2 weeks to see how you get on at Musselburgh and how we perform at Haddington.....both games on paper look extremely tough encounters so lets see what happens.... By all accounts Blackburn played well yesterday so you are certainly on a good roll.....I also liked the look of your new keeper by the way. Good luck....go the Hoose!
  4. Tranent 1 Fauldhouse 2 H/T.
  5. Fingers crossed Toffee! After last weeks very disappointing performance (taking nothing away from a very good performance from an impressive Blackburn team) we need the lads to rally round and who knows that could be the "reality check" needed to protect against complacency that occasionally all teams need! Anyways....Tranent here we come .....so Go the Hoose...good luck today lads.
  6. Park View looking good today. The lads done great job on it...hats off to them! Now up to players to do the business on the pitch. Good luck lads rooting for you. Go the Hoose
  7. Time will tell Toffee......hope you're right mind you. Go the Hoose...oh and the Burgh!!
  8. Good luck to the Burgh in the cup tomorrow! Hope you have a long successful cup run this year. Oh don't take your eye off the league if you do the Hoose will get away from you now!!!!
  9. Hope the weather is kind to us overnight and Park View will be ready and looking good for yet another big, pivotal game for us, especially since Mussy are on Scottish Cup duty. I really hope that we get a good crowd tomorrow as it looks like being a good tough match.....but one that JC et all will have the lads well fired up and ready for. Looking forward to it......Go the Hoose!!
  10. What a refreshing and very positive statement JC.....respect due to you. Big, big game on Saturday for us and I can't wait to see the whole squad fired up for it, as I'm sure Blackburn will be. Keep it going JC....Go the Hoose!!
  11. Ditto PJS we all wish Kyle all the best.....
  12. Well Burnie Man, I think both Blackburn and the Hoose should be well satisfied with both their starts to the season. It's good this year to have 3 local derby games to look forward to in the league. I hope that we get a good crowd on Sat given it's also the old firm game (lunch time kick off) and the fans are treated to a good match. I'm looking forward to the game also as I think that potentially Blackburn will offer the toughest test yet this season for the Hoose......time will tell. Roll on Sat ...go the Hoose!!
  13. Arniston Rangers v Fauldhouse United McBookie.com East Premier League (16/09/2017) (Report submitted by Arniston Rangers) Arniston Miss Chance to Grab a Home Point After going a goal down within two minutes, Arniston fought back into the game and drew level as they dominated much of the first half. However, Fauldhouse came out re-energised after the break and controlled the second forty five minutes. The home side then showed why they are bottom of the table as they gave away two unnecessary penalties and United ran out comfortable winners as both teams tired on a heavy pitch. It was bottom versus top as Arniston Rangers hosted unbeaten Fauldhouse United in the McBookie.com East Premier League at Newbyres Park. The visitors have been in fine form this season and have only dropped points once this campaign- last Saturday at St Andrews. They are averaging nearly four goals a game in the league with Jack Currie having netted 8 times. Arniston sit bottom but have drawn four of their seven league fixtures so are no pushover - having lost by a single goal to promotion hopefuls Musselburgh earlier this season. Fauldhouse started quickly and were ahead with their first attack. Dunn made good progress on the left before centring for MCLEOD to slip home the simplest of chances - not for the first time this season Arniston paid the penalty for a slow start. Arniston won a corner in their first attack but McIntosh's cross produced nothing. There was fully 9 minutes played before there was anymore to report and it was a McIntosh shot straight at Hutchison in the away goal. A minute later Ranger's Hay pulled an effort just wide. Next Deland made great progress on the left and his cross was met by Fairgrieve who fluffed his attempt. United were second best at this stage but after 19 minutes Dunn got on the end of a short corner, but his fierce shot was wide. Two minutes later Bennett got free on the left but sent his effort wide. Arniston were playing well and after 25 minutes they drew level. HAY showed good pace to get on the end of a through ball and shot confidently past Hutchison in the United goal. They deserved to be level. Minutes later the home side had a penalty shout turned down when Fairgrieve was felled in the box - referee Ryan Lee was right on the spot and had a good view of the incident and waved play on. After 31 minutes Hay and McIntosh combined well but the latter shot straight at the visiting keeper. A minute later Hay had an effort deflected over. Next McIntosh had his effort well saved by Hutchison after a goalmouth scramble. At this point Arniston were dominating but missing chances. In the last five minutes of the half O'Donnell gave Bennett a chance which he put wide before McIntosh himself shot wide from distance. Arniston created enough openings to be in front at the break but poor finishing would come back to haunt them. Half Time Arniston Rangers1; Fauldhouse United 1 Fauldhouse came out a very different side in the second half. O'Donnell had a cross well collected by Cornet before having a weak shot held by the keeper. After 54 minutes O'Donnell again worked Cornet as the visitors dominated. Arniston were not seen going forward much although Hay put in a dangerous cross and McTernan had a weak shot straight at the keeper. Hay but in another good cross but Fairgrieve had a weak shot on the end of it. After 61 minutes, Cornet saved well from a Bennett header after a good O'Dnnell cross. Arniston withdrew Fairgrieve and introduced Watson just after the hour as legs tired. With 65 minutes played United might have gone ahead again. Callaghan slipped and let McLeod in but he was crowded out by home players. After 69 minutes Arniston missed a great opportunity to go into the lead. Deland did well to win the ball back and created an shooting chance for Somerville but he blasted over when well placed. With 73 minutes on the clock Fauldhouse won a penalty. McLeod cut in from the right and despite turning away from goal, McIntosh clumsily brought him down. The referee pointed to the spot and O'DONNELL gave Cornet no chance with the shot. It was a deserved goal. After 80 minutes Callaghan had a chance for Rangers when he got on the end of a free kick after Hutchison missed his punch but blasted over. Both teans made changes to introduce fresh legs. With three minutes remaining Fauldhouse secured the points. Woods handled when he was on the ground in the box and the referee awarded a second penalty. O'DONNELL stepped forward and gave Cornet no chance for the second time. Fauldhouse deserved the points for their second half performance but Arniston had enough chances to share the points overall. The two penalties could have been avoided. Best for Rangers were Deland and Hay and United were well served by Dunn and McLeod. Referee Ryan Lee had a fine game and despite no assistants got the big decision right.

  14. Well Toffee I can assure you that when I said it would be a tough game and it certainly was! Over the years we have always found it tough and had many a hard fought match at Arniston and yesterday was no different. With our normal centre forward Jack missing through Illness the constant rain made sure that the park was very slippy underfoot for both teams. Although we took a very early lead Arniston came back at us and scored a very well taken equaliser and missed a few chances. We got 2 late penalties although both IMO were correctly given and weren't disputed by the Arniston defenders. So we returned to the Hoose fairly wet but very happy last night all set to enjoy our sportsman's dinner. With Mussy also winning by the same margin it meant that we stayed top on goal difference so a good day all round for the Hoose. We move on to next weeks match v Blackburn in good form and with confidence. Good luck also to Mussy next week but I'll finish this post with GO THE HOOSE!!
  15. Neck and neck between the Hoose and the Mussy with both showing good 3:1 away wins today. Interesting top of the table battle this year may the best team win.....go the Hoose though!!
  16. Another great result and 3 points for the Hoose today against Arniston. Whilst the performance IMO wasn't the best all credit to the lads on grinding out a result in difficult conditions and a very wet park. It's matches like these that at the end of the season can make a big difference to where you finish in the league. Well done JC and the lads! Bring on Blackburn next week for a local derby! Go the Hoose!!
  17. Another tough game for the Hoose tomorrow at Arniston. Good luck lads! Lets hope for a good result and a successful Sports Dinner tomorrow night also. Go the Hoose.
  18. Great! Just let the guys at the gate know who you are or arrange via boss man JC and we will make you welcome. See you soon..
  19. Thanks for posting your views and your kind comments. If you are ever passing Fauldhouse you will be made very welcome at Park VIew to watch the Hoose.
  20. Here here JC, there are times when the result isn't the b all and end all and tonight all our thoughts are with Higgy. Go Higgy!
  21. I hope your prediction is correct Toffee. Oh and we also hope the Mussy have an off day today....so feelings both mutual Go the Hoose!!
  22. Correct! Game switched to St Andrews on Saturday. We have had almost non stop rain in the Hoose since Monday and even tonight its chucking it down. The park hasn't had a chance to drain or dry out. At least plenty of notice has been given instead of chancing a Sat morning pitch failure so at least Club has been proactive here. Go the Hoose!
  23. On paper (top v 4th in league) the Hoose face our biggest game and test of the season so far against St Andrew's at Park View on Saturday. I hope we can manage to attract a reasonable crowd to what is IMO the Premier League's "match of the day". I'm sure JC and the management team will have the squad fired up and ready for this one as usual as we seek to extend our winning streak. Confidence, self belief and ability is there and self evident within the squad so really looking forward to the game on Saturday. Go the Hoose!!
  24. Here here PJS! Having a manager who (within acceptable managerial parameters) offers comments and openly supports and praises and encourages the younger squad members is as you say a breath of fresh air! Well done JC and young Matty and Ben today....who by all accounts played well again. Big game for all on Saturday.....Go the Hoose!
