  1. I was expecting more from Jackie yesterday but luckily didn't see it. I'm not sure I saw anyone really shine yesterday but it was still an enjoyable match. It's a pity Jackie's time at Linlithgow was cut short as he is a class player.
  2. I thought it was an entertaining match today even if the quality wasn't that great. The result was in doubt right to the end with plenty chances at both ends. I'd have replaced Slaven with Coco as he didn't seem to ever find a Rose player with a pass all afternoon but then he nearly won the game at the end.
  3. The difference between West and East. Glasgow - "Bottle of ginger, please". "What flavour?" "Orange". Edinburgh - "Bottle of lemonade, please". "What flavour?" "Orange". Where was the ginger/lemonade line? It wasn't the same as the salt'n'sauce/salt'n'vinegar line because when I were a lad in Linlithgow we were aligned to Edinburgh in juice terms but Glasgow in condiment terms. In Linlithgow, we had at least two lemonade producers in the town, never mind having Barrs in Falkirk.
  4. Coyne hit the bar to balance the one off the post.
  5. Agreed but even when we were 1 up and dominating I always feared there was a defensive error just around the corner. I think the ref added more time on than we deliberately wasted at the end of the match. I'm not a fan of the giving up chances to seal the game to instead waste time in the corner.
  6. It also tells you that home advantage isn't that relevant at this level. Except, of course, if you have an idiosyncratic pitch like Bonnyrigg or Broxburn where local knowledge can give you a goal's start. A good playing surface like Linlithgow or Bo'ness is "a level playing-field".
  7. You can't play them all though and the guys in possession will be difficult to shift. I still prefer Barbour in front of the back two though but it's starting to look like a problem of who to leave out. I've been impressed with every member of the squad so far. All we need now is to play in the first half of games!
  8. I don't know how we won the game but the result wasn't important anyway. I wasn't really impressed with the first-half trialists but it was hardly a match to make judgments on. I did like the urgency about the team when the later subs came on though.
  9. I agree with what you say. When you pulled it back to 2 each I feared the worst as your boys seemed up for it but then we started taking the chances we'd been missing in the first half and seemed to score at will. Musselburgh were dangerous up front but woeful at the back.
  10. 7 scored and 2 more disallowed for offside and good many more chances missed. A lot could be attributed to Mussy's defence though. It's as though they'd never played together before. They scored 3 though and also had 2 chalked off for offside. It's just as well that Musselburgh were generous in defence. Good value seeing the ball in the net 14 times in a game! Special word for Ruari with 4.
  11. Windsor Castle, Glasgow Art School, Glasgow Art School, Notre Dame. Renovation Must Stop!
  12. Try praying. Seriously though, I can't visualise a scenario which would send a largely stone building up like that.
  13. A good result today as no other team has done that to Blackburn this season. I have to say that it was one of those days when it was all coming off for us. We've played as well as that in other games without getting the breaks. Today we got the goals our play deserved. Correct me if I'm wrong but was that not a very good artificial surface? The bounce seemed to be natural, not like that Broxburn one which I see as an unfair home advantage.
  14. I'm not so sure. The people I'm talking about read tabloids, not social media. And, by the way, I'm not saying all Brexiteers are of a rough disposition but I am saying that it looks like there's a large proportion who are and they could be mobilised by a banner headline or two.
