  1. Very good performance from a makeshift Broxburn today. Could easily have taken a point today against top of the table Jeanfield but for a couple of mistakes. Need to get their injured players back quickly if they are to mount a challenge.
  2. https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjA2vp5 photos from game on Tuesday night.
  3. Potential banana skin only just avoided but at what cost! Another 4 injured during the game (and not a bad tackle all game). Kirkcaldy will be a bit miffed they couldn’t hold onto the lead twice but thought they were more than a decent outfit. Good pace and well organised both going forward and at the back. Onto another tough fixture on Saturday but god knows who will be fit to play.
  4. Yes definitely handball but don’t know what the rule is this week!!! The ex-Blackburn defender did really well on the 3 on 1 break to hold his position. As you say Blackburn could have won it at the death.
  5. Yes not helped that our two best ball playing centre half are injured. Think they are trying to play the modern way out from the back, but you have to have the players to do it . Another tough one next week up in Perth, plus a banana skin cup tie midweek.
  6. Fair assessment of the game, but not the Blackburn goal although it was sloppy. Pass to defender was fine but he miscontolled it and his pass back to the keeper was a hospital ball. The GK’s clearance was blocked onto the bar. It falls to a Blackburn player 8 yards out who fires home off the keeper who is a bit unlucky not to keep it out. Pity for the defender, who I thought was outstanding today.
  7. Derby day today - always a tough fixture for Broxburn. Added spice (not that it’s needed) of a Scottish Cup tie on the horizon. Should be a cracker!
  8. Yes was end to end stuff and good to watch. Think both will be up near the top end once they gel as both have a lot of new faces.
  9. Two games in and four points is not a bad return, considering the injury situation. Unconvincing at VOL and a shade fortunate to pick up a point last night in a very entertaining game. In saying that when we went 2-1 up there only looked like one winner. Fair play to Musselburgh for coming back strongly in the last 20 minutes or so. Still don’t think we know what the best 11 is or what formation suits us best. Always going to be a bit of a hit and miss start with the number of new players being brought in, but hopefully we will gel as the season goes on. Mon the Brox
  10. Musselburgh probably deserved to win it last night. Controlled the first and last 25 minutes of the game with Broxburn the better team the 20 minutes before and after halftime.
  11. Despite the score unconvincing from Broxburn. Should have been 2-0 down after 20 minutes. Second half much better. VOL were decent and if they can add 3 more players they have a decent chance of staying up
  12. The real action kicks off tomorrow and just can’t see past Linlithgow and Penicuik for the top two spots. My choice for winner is Lithgae (not a huge surprise). Jeanfield will be the best of the rest. Going down will be a tougher call. Vale of Leithen and Oakley would be my call, but after that which 1/2 will join them is anyones guess. My choices will be LTHV and Swifts. Think Blackburn, Haddington and Tynecastle will just have enough about them to survive. Will be a really tough league this year and very important to get off to a good start.
  13. I hope so. Still think they are lacking a bit of something. May just be a lot of new faces but definitely need a couple of our first choice CB’s back. I do think we will be better but still not near challenging Lithgae or Penicuik for that matter.
  14. Going to be a tough gig for the relegated teams. 4 went down and only 2 come up. Add in Leith and Preston plus a couple of others and it ain’t going to be easy. Just pleased Broxburn stayed clear of it as there was a time they could have been dragged in.
