    No reason to think Bonnyrigg wont go onto win this section. My aim is a little bit higher, we should be aiming for an undefeated season. (apart from Scottish)

    I really dont subscribe to the idea this will be a walk over on Saturday. This is a dangerous time to play Boness and Bonnyrigg will still need to be at their usual best to get a result. Anyone suggesting this is going to be a demolition is delusional. I do fancy us to win but Boness players are hurt and really playing for the pride of the team, their fans and themselves after what happened at Tranent so expect nothing less than 100% determination from them and to make it difficult. My prediction... 3-1 Bonnyrigg

    Not pretty at times over the last few weeks but effective. Next 2 or 3 league games are big. Reckon of we beat Dundonald away that will be it all over bar the shouting. edit; sorry Dundonald game is further away than i though. Hopefully should be over by the time we play them.

    Seemingly need to have a license by 31st March to play in LL playoffs, hope this is an achievable timescale

    The argument about fans is very much my dad is bigger than your dad logic. I never made the game at Boness but have been plenty times before and dont think we have ever outnumber Boness supporters, same is true for Linlithgow. If the statement is remotely true about Boness then their core support must have fallen and our usual away support must have really increased for this game. I remember several season back, Max Christie era i think, and we had a stag doo and half of the team were away from an important match which i think we lost. I remember how pissed off i was at that so if i were a Boness fan i wouldnt be happy at a similar occurence especially in a "big game"

    5-0 after 20 mins
  7. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    no rush by the looks of things, as long as interim team and players are comfortable with this (looks like they were last Saturday anyway) then i am happy to wait

    I would take Johnny, proven himself at the teams he has been at.
  9. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    and they`re off good result last night, roll on Saturday!
  10. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    on a side note, how good does the park look at NDP Game on Saturday was a non event and i do expect several of these over the season but like someone above said there are tough games in the league section and the players will need to be on it if we are going to be successful in getting into the LL at the first attempt.

    is it a 3pm ko tomorrow?
  12. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    Dont know much about him but thats us signed 2 forwards now so looking kind of heavy in that position. Thompson, Lough, McGachie, Swanson, Wilson & Wayne??
  13. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    I think we can progress from this section but we wont have to win every game to do so as i see a few teams capable of beating each other in here. This section has more quality than last years EoS so LTHV will not win every game I am sure Boness, Dundonald, Sauchie etc will have a big say.
  14. Bonnyrigg Rose a Junior appreciation

    Ashfield away was amazing! That auld wooden stand was nearly flattened. But some of the best days have been Senior Scottish, Brechin away, Dumbarton away, Hibs at home (kind of) although Hibs gubbed us what an experience for the town. With this new move hopefully it will open up these possibilities on a more frequent basis which can only be good. Sad to leave but happy to be moving in the direction we are. I think in the next few years we will all end up in the same place and friends and rivals at the same standard will meet again. Hopefully a national tournament under the SFL for non league would be great but 1 step at a time i suppose. As i said in another forum, good luck to the teams in both associations. "Oh The Rosey Posey" Juniors over and out....its been good knowing you....its not you its me blah blah blah Oh, lastly, do we now need to refer to the users of this forum as "junior thicko`s" only kidding
