  1. Although a couple of dodgy moments, we weren't doing too badly until the goal. Thought Parry could possibly have came off his line when the ball came back across just before the goal. Get Splaine off for Kennedy, as he's done nothing but lose possession. Not that I think it will matter much, can't see us coping at the back while having to open up and chase the game more.

    You'll be absolutely fine. I was a Division 3/4 player last year and Gold 3 (2 occasionally). I lost my first qualifiers last week but this week waited until Friday night/Saturday morning and got through with ease. In the Weekend League itself, a couple of guys smashed me but not too many. Reached Rank 3 slightly to my surprise. I was gifted 2 wins but managed it with 3 to spare so might have got it anyway. I'd say I had another 5 defeats I easily could have/should have won. And all that effort netted me two meh red picks, three crap TOTW cards and a high of 84 Barella from the Jumbo Rare Players Pack. Whoop-de-fucking-do. You need to reach Rank 3 to requalify for the playoffs. Still 1000 points back for the next rank down, so another 500 wouldn't be too bad to get.
  5. In a game where we had several abysmal performances on the pitch, amazingly none of them came close to being as bad as Lennon today. He'd at least tried to address his appalling starting line up with two changes but what on earth possessed him to put Jones on when Cunningham got injured, I've no idea. I actually think Jones, if used correctly and sparingly, could occasionally be a useful player. But, at a time when we were kind of edging ourselves into the game, replacing a left winger with another striker was mental. He could have stuck Mortimer on the wing, or put Mortimer/Munro at rightback and Cuddihy back to midfield. Instead he abandoned the idea of having anyone on the left side of the pitch and the performance became even worse than it had started out. He also seems to have forgotten that Gomis wasn't really working in a deep midfield role. Before he mysteriously missed a game (for which we typically weren't told why) and then was only on the bench, he actually had a couple of games as a pressing midfielder - playing high up the park, putting the opposition under pressure and nicking the ball from them in good positions. He's too slow and ponderous at times to play deep but Lennon again completely forgets what he's seen before. I'm not quite at the point of calling for Lennon to be sacked but I would be glad if he decided to walk away now. One small aside: he made a few decent saves today but I wouldn't be sorry if we dropped Parry for Bradley-Hurst for a game or two. It's always harsh to judge a keeper playing behind an awful defence but his reactions seem a bit slow at times and his kicking is atrocious.
  6. Rumsby at right back was always idiotic but made even worse by Cunningham at right mid. He doesn't track back to help defend and he's rubbish 90% of the time from the right wing too. He needs to be through the middle or from the left. Lennon genuinely seems to forget lessons he's learned time and time again.

    Qualified for the weekend league for the first time this morning, no issues during the playoffs. Played my first 2 WL games to the worst connections I've had at any point during this years game. The first guy smashed me 5-0 and it would have made no difference. The second game I lost 2-1 where both of their goals came on the back of my game completely freezing. Unplayable and wondering why I bothered with it. ETA: Game 3 I was gifted the win, then won game 4 properly. Slightly less raging now.

  9. Fucking yes! As if that result needed a topper, 3 out of 3 big bets tonight
  10. Lennon has had no interest in us trying to play our way back into the game in this half. Embarrassing tactics, if you can even call them that.
  11. Thankfully Lennon didn't take too long to change away from 5-3-2 that was getting us completely overrun. The flipside being our players don't really suit the now 4-4-2. Surely Airdrie will make the most of Rumsby at rightback (who's done well so far, to be fair to him) and the dreadfully slow Balatoni inside him. I thought Cunningham was a bit lucky only to see yellow. Didn't seem like there was much contact but diving in with your foot up is asking for trouble. Goodwillie really should have done better with his chance at the end, with Currie moronically sprinting off his line. Tighter game now but still expecting Airdrie to punsih us at some point.

    Packed Pogba in my Squad Battle rewards this morning, along with Foden and a couple more 83/84s. Sold Pogba for 130k and reinvested it in 86ish rated cards.
  14. Long overdue one of these.
  15. An away win AND a clean sheet. Wonders will never cease.
  16. It's been all East Fife since my last post. Deveney had a good debut last week but is having a bit of a nightmare today - I'd get Livingstone on at half time. Kennedy has been anonymous.
  17. The camerawork of East Fife TV is absolutely horrendous. The picture quality is decent and no buffering issues (touch wood) but the insistence of the cameraman to zoom in too much makes everything very jerky as they then struggle to follow play. Not much in the game so far with both teams predictably poor. East Fife starting to threaten a little.

  19. Matt Carley remains as dreadful as always. Had to be talked out of a red card earlier, for a head to head clash that was never a red, then refuses to give one for a clear headshot. A couple of impressive weeks from Australia though.

    Well I'm now looking forward to the new game. Yes, it'll have the same old faults and takes a lot of time but, when you can be bothered, it is enjoyable in its own way.

  22. We really should have been able to create more in the second half with that amount of possession and Peterhead sitting back. Too much damage done in the first 20 minutes though, and even before that with the starting line up.
  23. Nicoll ran away from his man for no reason at all there. Brainless chasing after the ball when Livingstone was already there.
