  1. Very disappointing performance last night, not much energy about the team in the first half- better in the second but their second goal came at a bad time. Higgins, Hunter, Watson and McConville only ones with pass marks for me. Wide players offered zero as did the front two- I think the instant impact of Dowds on the pitch highlighted this. Anyway, never too low at a loss and never too high at a win! Heads up and lets move on... SS
  2. Agree with lukejoaitken's review, poor performance- even in the second half when we were a little more dominant we lacked any real quality. Several players never really turned up, Dunlop cool as a cucumber at the back again however and really impressed with Hart in the sticks. Would like to see big Dowds start next week, as well as Watson at right back- feel like him and Dunsmore work well together down the right. At least we are off the mark with points....onto next week! As you were, SS
  3. Come on the Fife today!! Great pre season completed after getting the cob webs off at Cowdenbeath.. here's hoping that the team can kick on! Young will definitely have a headache as to who to start, especially right back, centre mid and up top. As you were, SS.
  4. For me a central midfielder is crucial to get in, especially after Agnew coming off with a very bad one! Hopefully one of them and a winger would do nicely. Loved watching that win yesterday, being able to pull that result out the bag whilst playing on a complete tattie field further shows how strong the character is within that changing room...well done DY. For me Kev Smith was the game changer yesterday (out with setting up their second), superb! Dublin bound now fifers! SS
  5. After missing the Montrose game i couldn't wait to see the lads play again and they did not let me down- mon the fife!! Can see how much it means to the team through their celebrations after the goals as well as the full time whistle. Great passion, which is what a fan like myself loves to see! Can understand the criticism of Docherty, shoehorned into the team- as clearly Youngs pal- and adds very little however yesterday he was decent. Now for the sh*t drive down to Stranraer- heres hoping for an important 3 points. SS
  6. Happy New Year in New Zealand fellow Fifer Hope all the fans have a great one, still cant stop smiling after that win! No surprise 2 up top and the back 4 of the 8-in-a-row team led to a great display and being the better team for 85 mins! Just need Liam Watt or Craig Thomson on the left wing and i believe we have a real chance at the top 4.... still only half way through the season of course- plenty twists and turns to come no doubt. In the mean time, Happy 2019 when it comes. SS
  7. 3 points and a clean sheet is the main thing to take out of Saturdays game as a few others have said. However Docherty outstanding? God knows what performance you were watching LiamA! Before them two names i would have put Bell, Watson and Dunlop to name a few.... Bells energy is outstanding and a breathe of fresh air- great to see him get a new contract, Watson was excellent- made one of the best challenges I have seen in the second half (shown in highlights) which for some reason a goal kick was given, and Dunlop was solid in the centre making up for Docherty's poor positional sense. Heres hoping for another 3 points before Christmas! SS
  8. Can see why this got many likes, spot on. Montrose seemed far hungrier and united on the day, EF disheveled and stand-off ish. Strange sub regarding Watson, could have done better for the goal however by no means a stand out bad 45- same with Watt who was also subbed. I would argue the GK could have done better for the first goal on Saturday- same with a few others since Long's red card. Docherty should not be the starting left back, Slattery proved he was reliable throughout the 8 in a row. Yes he deserved subbed at Dumbarton however more than merits a second chance. Consistency needs to return and in doing so so does the team which took 16/16 points! Come on the EF, few more points before the New Years please! SS
  9. Well that was no good, back to earth with a bang! Dumbarton done well to turn it into an ugly game, which clearly suited them- their defence ate up all the long balls that came their way, disappointingly they won most second balls too which has been very rear for players like davidson recently. Meggatt was a big miss in central defence with the performances he has put in throughout the winning run- the left hand side of defence really struggled the whole game i felt. The positives for me were Agnew and Watson who seemed to never give up as well as Courts second half performance especially when we went to 10 men. ah well never too up with a win, or 8, and never too low with a lose. Hoping EF cause an upset next week!! SS
  10. Great first quarter after a shaky first few games. Now thats Brechin bet thats 1 of 3 defeats avenged... no reason for the run to stop, come on EF!!!! GK visibly growing in confidence, solid defence with fb's that can bomb on, a hard working midfield with quality in the final third and finally 4 hungry strikers all worthy of starting. One game at a time, long may it continue.
  11. Well worth the trip!! DY and the lads continuing the run much to myself and all fifers delight roll on next week- game by game as i have previously stated. Starting 11 seem to have cemented their place, no real criticisms of anyone (agree with FF's comments, Meggatt Kane and Watson the stand outs for me yesterday). Moreover the subs, aka Currie, coming on and doing the business is great to see....would like to see Thomson put on in the second half, his pace would destroy tired defenders! Here's to keeping the momentum up! SS
  12. Great to see the momentum pick up, long may it continue! Never get too high with wins, never too low with defeats (something a good few on this are horrendous for!) Must stay behind the lads and DY- seem to have created a real team feel, fighting for one and other right to the 90th+ minute this season. SS
  13. Great for Darren, coaching staff and the players starting to get what they deserve from games! Following on from previous posts everyone who played was fantastic. Chris Kane at cb i thought was excellent, Court and Watt going forward were too and the Watson/Dunsmore combination on the right look an great pairing! Here's hoping the momentum continues!! SS
  14. At last.... finishing a game with the points we deserve! All defensive players and Brett were solid throughout and they helped each other whenever one of the few mistakes were made. Fantastic two goals, great strike for the first and brave commitment from Court (who i feel has came on to a great game since Cowden) for the second. Was frustrating to see the shape of the team change in the second half as the one up top was then left with a thankless task- however the team showed an amazing desire to keep the clean sheet. Can see what the victory meant to the players by watching their reaction at the full time whistle! Shame the league fixtures now have to take a break however hoping the momentum carries on after the Thistle game.
