  1. Less stressful of course. If we were scoring a few more goals which our play has merited in many of the single goal wins
  2. The moaning at refs and linos starts early on and is counterproductive in terms of 50/50 decisions - it also lasts nearly the whole game and even at 4-0 up we dispute a throw in decision when the game is safely won
  3. It is and there is cover, the old Community Centre is in the process of being demolished. Thanks Burnie
  4. Any cover at Ash Grove and is the Community Centre still there? Assume the new pitch is on the site of the old "all weather" pitch?
  5. Forget the insults, fouls, ref's decisions, gestures etc this was a decent hard fought game contested by 2 good teams - was impressed by Camelon 9 and 11 - tough game and good to edge it but long way to go
  6. Think Syme could have done a job at LB and good luck to him
  7. Watched it for 20 mins and good session, players in good spirits and some slick passing - good workout before Saturday
  8. Flight back from Munich will make interesting travel expenses this week b.ut fair play to Gemmell for making the game - disappointing to be sent off for an invisible tackle though - and well done to the players and management for a wonderful run and deserved cup win
  9. Agreed response and attitude coming back from 2-1 and 3-2 down and winning was excellent and great entertainment
  10. Busy area tomorrow with 18000 at Tynecastle and 40000 at Murrayfield on top of the travelling BU fans
  11. A good few people missed ko so they must have been reading the "ego trip " site - thanks to AHeid for confirming 2pm earlier today meaning I was there for 2pm
  12. Decent crowd despite lack of clarity re ko - good to see some old faces returning to Newtown many of whom turned out for both clubs - good turn out for a player who gave his all wherever he was asked to play - well taken hat trick for Chris ans sure more to come
  13. Archie was a natural goal scorer and later a good coach at Avon Star
  14. Was game eventually won at Shotts? That BU team should have gone much further
  15. First Larkhall game was 2-2 away I think - then 0-0 before 2 further replays one ending 3-3 after extra time - 1 replay was at Shotts and the other in Glasgow ( Petershill ? ) after 53 yrs could be wrong but we got through in the end to face Armadale in an interesting tie
  16. Remember Bobby refereeing 70's / 80's - strict but efficient and liked a bit of banter on the pitch
  17. That is indeed Tam Caldwell - father of Stephen and Gary
  18. Not been a good week off the park but we have turned a corner - the fixture board has been updated and Dunipace, Haddington, 6th October and 2.30 pm have finally been replaced by Bonnyrigg, 3rd November, 2 pm - now if we could similarly fix the defence!
  19. Must have been season 71/72 - remember playing against strong side containing guys with first team experience e.g. Billy McGann, Frank Harper and Davie Marshall - also remember scoring from penalty but getting gubbed at home - also remember playing them at Central Park where also got gubbed playing for Bo'ness Academy v Beath High School ( prob 1964/5 )
  20. Defiant, fighting display and well worth at least a draw. To finish the game with only 9 players ( including only 1 natural defender in Syme) was a great achievement and we probably deserved to win - reaction at end both on and off the park was tremendous
  21. Match reports every Saturday night in the pink news
  22. Both Hearts and Hibs Colts teams played early seventies and sometimes featured first team players coming back from injury - Cowdenbeath Reserves played when they were in the first division- others included Civil Service Strollers, Gala Fairydean, Hawick Royal Albert, Kelso, Selkirk, Edinburgh Uni and last ( but not least ) Heriot Watt Uni
