  1. Whilst catching up on yesterdays football events I see that Si Ferry was listed on a Celtic Legends squad who played Liverpool Legends at Anfield in aid of the Liverpool Foundation. That will give him plenty bounty for his podcast. C’mon The Rose
  2. So back to NDP today as the season gets to the real business end. Great victory at Elgin two weeks ago and heartbreak at the end of the match at Stirling last week. My hopes do not change:- Don’t lose an early goal (or a late one), no cheap penalties given away, and again we still await some luck , break of the ball and referee decision. It will be the usual tough game and again I look forward to the match. (After watching the rugby of course) C’mon The Rose
  3. Answer to that question is easy. They are the clubs that have no fans, so take the B teams money and hope they get some fans through their gates when they play them at home. I will save my energy and not name them. C’mon The Rose
  4. Well it all wrapped up again for the Saturday afternoon trip to Forthbank in Stirling. It was a long trip last Saturday to Elgin but a very happy journey back to Bonnyrigg in the dark. Our matches with Stirling this season have been close affairs and I expect the same again today. C’mon The Rose
  5. So some sandwiches and a flask of tea made up for some sustenance for the trip to Elgin today. Scarf and glove and big jacket also a necessity. It’s gonna be a long day out. Whilst on about necessities I have added to my hopes for the match. 1) Don’t lose an early goal. 2) Don’t give away cheap penalties 3) Score more than 1 goal we still have had no breaks or luck after this weeks 2 matches and I still live in hope that will. change before it’s too late. C’mon The Rose
  6. Well it’s still winter jacket scarf and gloves evening for the match tonight. A lot has happened in the 7 months when we deservedly beat them at home on the opening day of the season. We have had little luck with results, incidents and decisions since that opening game, surely our luck will change at some stage. Three points tonight would be massive for us so I keep hoping.. C’mon The Rose
  7. Maybe, but you will be sitting behind your keyboard making your usual cynical comments and not braving the likely chill evening. Ask for a seat on your team bus and get a complimentary ticket from them and have a free day out. Bring your own bridie picnic for your sustinence instead of the 10 day old pies that will be on sale from the Rose pie shed. C’mon The Rose
  8. There is a Social club right beside the ground and a few pubs very near the ground. This game is now a must win for The Rose as we don’t want to become detached from the clubs above us. My hopes of not losing early goals and giving away cheap penalties has not materialised in the last few games, so these are essential requirements today. Again it will be interesting to see our team selection today and we can score the first goal of the match. C’mon The Rose
  9. Well my hopes for last Saturday lasted all of a minute, soft penalty, goal. Luckily we got and early equaliser but still went on to lose. I live in hope like many others that our luck will change. A long trek to Stranraer this morning much different from the glorious weather when we were there last August, when you could have thought you were going on your holidays. We came back with a well earned draw that day, hope we can go 1 better and get a victory today, otherwise it’s a long journey back in the dark. C’mon The Rose
  10. Well first Saturday in February and into the second half of the season, mid term report for me says “should have done better “ A quick turnaround from playing Annan 2 weeks ago where a heavy defeat was the result of a poor performance. A lot of new faces in the team since that day so will be interesting to see the starting lineup today. We must score the first goal of the game to give us a foundation and confidence to build on, stop giving away cheap goals and putting the referee in the situation of awarding silly penalties against us. Look forward to the game and into the club afterwards to watch the Rugby. C’mon The Rose
  11. Well it’s another trip along the M8 to the Rock of Dumbarton today. Will be interesting to see what the team selection is today after all the new signings this month. Simple we have to score goals and stop giving away cheap goals at the other end. We had the majority of possession last Saturday but created very few chances. One point would be a great result for us today. C’mon The Rose
  12. Wise words from a resident of Central Park Cowdenbeath!!! C’mon The Rose
  13. So after a momentous 2022 for the club we start of the New Year with a match at home against Albion Rovers . No doubt the objectives for this year are different from last. We finished last year unbeaten in 5 so here’s hoping we can continue with that sequence this afternoon. Needle stuck but hope we can get the 1st goal today and see how Rovers react, after all they have scored the first goal in the 2 previous games this season. Gonna be breezy so looking for a victory today and massively help our League position. C’mon The Rose
  14. Brrr, it’s bloody freezing but that doesn’t stop me making my first journey to Annan. Hopefully we can get a victory and 3pts after a run of 4 draws. We are improving and as Robbie has said over the last few weeks we need a lucky, jammy break on the field instead of these breaks going against us, we all know what they are so I won’t list mine. Flask filled and sanny made so ready to hit the road now. C’mon The Rose
  15. Just getting ready to get the scarf and jacket on and take the stroll to NDP for the first time in a while. We had good draws away at Forfar and Stenhousemuir in recent weeks, hopefully we can keep up performances and get 3pts today. They only beat us at Boghead with a soft penalty. Team selection may be interesting today ,with hopefully our recent injured players getting themselves into contention. C’mon The Rose
  16. So off to another new ground today for me , the expanse of Ochilview in Larbert. It was a well deserved point up at Forfar last Saturday, would be great if Hunter can score for 3 games in a row. My needle keeps getting stuck, just wish we could score the first goal. Thankfully its a plastic pitch for the match to be on after all the rain this week. C’mon The Rose
  17. The Rose have not had many 0-0 over the last few years, so I doubt that score. Hope it’s Forfar nil as I have a feeling Robbie may change our goalie today and Mikey Andrews will play a blinder. Look forward to my trip and of course the local delicacy A Bridie, if the best are not served at the ground where in town can we sample the best bridie? C’mon The Rose
  18. And what about the stadium? C’mon The Rose
  19. Well it’s back to NDP this afternoon when Elgin City come to town, it seems like only a few weeks ago that we were up at their ground, where we were poor on the day and lost an early goal. We showed a lot more fight and character last week where it was disappointing that we only had 1 shot on goal but scored from it. We have not had much luck in many games this season, hopefully that will change today and again I plead for us to score the first goal of the game, which I am sure will help our confidence. C’mon The Rose
  20. Correct never a foul. Referees need to learn to watch the direction of the ball after a challenge to help them with their decision. I thought you were unable to appeal a red card for 2 yellow card offences. It’s a shame The Roses highlights don’t show the incident where Connolly received his first yellow card after an Albion player came flying through the air causing Connolly to get out of the way of a possible serious injury. In summary 2 yellow cards for doing nothing and receiving a red card from the Headmaster. A totally shocking decision, the Ref needs a few weeks on the naughty step!!! C’mon The Rose
  21. Time wasting when ahead!!!!!! Your having a laugh. We have very rarely been ahead in any game this season to resort to that tactic. Any team that has scored the first goal against us seems to result in that team wasting time and the referees letting them away with it. All teams now pinch yards at free kicks throw ins and get away with it , but you can’t take a quick free kick till the school teacher gets his tin of paint out to mark two white lines on the pitch. I don’t like to slag off referees but the joker in the purple jersey had a shocker for both teams. It was never a penalty and as for the sending off both yellow cards were a joke. C’mon The Rose
  22. Thank you. Your club’s entry fee is perfectly acceptable unlike some club in this division who reside in Fife. Look forward to a trip to the current League leaders. Although we won by a penalty goal at our first meeting at NDP both teams have had different fortunes since. Gonna be difficult for The Rose and would be happy to return to Bonnyrigg with a point. C’mon The Rose
  23. Well it was a rather dreich day in Clackmannanshire in more ways than one. Agree with the post above the step up has been a challenge after the promising start to the season. Will be interesting to see what develops in the next few weeks. Gets no easier next Saturday when we visit the League leaders. P.S Well done to great club servant Alan Horne who gets a well deserved testimonial game this afternoon. What a class act he has been for the Rose in his time at NDP. C’mon The Rose
  24. So another Scottish cup campaign starts today away at Sauchie. By my reckoning this is our 5th consecutive Scottish cup away draw, but that doesn’t matter it gives us fans a good day out. Look forward to my trip to Clackmannanshire and we can return with a much needed victory and be in the hat for the next round draw which is on Monday I believe. C’mon The Rose
  25. Well it a fine Autumn day for the game versus East Fife today. It was great to return to winning ways last Tuesday against Annan and keep a clean sheet to boot. It would be great to get our first double of the season this afternoon, it won’t be easy and I hope for 3pts come 4.50pm this afternoon. C’mon The Rose
