  1. Story of the season so far for us. Playing well and dominating the pitch - go in at half time deserved 1-0 could of been more. After that we turned on kamikaze mode and yet again gifted a team a host of chances/goals. Alloa didn’t even have to make their own opportunities - we gifted them every goal. I like that we play football and don’t just hoof and run, I like that we play out from the back but if the players can’t tell when is the right time and when they should just clear the pressure then it is folly. Our defence probably has as many assists for the teams we’ve played as opposition players. We really could have won that game but good luck to Alloa in the next round!
  2. Come on mate. Time to step away from the keyboard and enjoy your night - we lost a close game of football - it happens. We still look decent for a good league campaign..
  3. I wasn’t at all convinced in real time-but 1 tv replay suggests he got away with one there. No awful injustice with that or the red card - just footballing decisions that sometimes don’t go your way.
  4. You won the game so fair play but I didn’t see anything in that team to suggest they were cruising - if anything they looked a little rattled towards the end.
  5. Before the red card Elgin had more good chances to score than Raith. Elgin were nowhere near their best either and your fans were asking for the final whistle against 10 men - hardly a glorious victory!
  6. Just not our night. We gave a decent team a 2 goal start with awful defending and couldn’t quite get back on terms. The more I see the red card the more I’m convinced it’s a bad call but good luck to Raith in the semis!
  7. Absolute pish! He hasn’t launched in two footed which is the out of control tackle you’re probably on about (which came into the rules about 3 years ago!) and he has barely made contact.
  8. Tbh think that was the only contentious decision of the game. Wasn’t convinced by the penalty shout.
  9. Shame. We looked well in this for 20 mins - could be a heavy defeat now. Must be the only one who thinks that red card is harsh. Not a great tackle but he hasn’t gone through the player and in reality hasn’t caught him hard - 2/3 off most lower league games if that was always a red.
  10. Hard game for us coming off the back of a very poor performance against stenny. We’ve been pretty good up till now considering the players we have injured so hopefully Saturday was a blip and we can get a result. If Omar is back that’s a big plus but think Soapy Cameron is few weeks off match fitness. If our midfield turns up this week or aren’t bypassed by constant punts up the field, I’m hoping to nick it 1-2.
  11. If the lad can put highlights together that make it look like Elgin dominated that match then he’ll be getting poached by Spielberg!
  12. We were very poor today. We’ve coped well with some key players missing so far but they were missed big time today. Stenny were very comfortable looking like they wanted it more TBH. Bit of a reality check after a fine start but this league looks really tight and think a lot of teams will take points off each other so far from a disaster!
  13. Lol I was talking about the last time we played Stenny but i was wrong anyway - so maybe the alcohol was kicking in!!
  14. 3-0 I think. Stenny were probably the worst team (twice) to come to BB 2 years ago but still got promoted! We look pretty good they look like hoping McGuigan scores enough to see them safe - we should win this!
  15. Cautiously optimistic about this- the ghosts of last season’s home performances are still affecting my confidence. We look pretty good at the moment especially with a few guaranteed starters injured. Tuesday aside the defence looks way better this season so hoping a couple of goals will see us through. 2-1 City!
