As a neutral (Burnley) fan at the game, I thought you played pretty well, particularly in the first half.

I liked the way you looked to get it wide and have players on the overlap.

That said, you didn't have a player who could really troubled their tall central defenders, so that'd be a worry - the type of delivery wasn't very good.

Not as good in the second half, but clearly the better side still.

Me and my three kids enjoyed it, although it was a hard sell for me that we got to see penalties rather than 5 goals at my other two options (East Fife and Dunfermline), lol.

I also liked the ground: didn't realise it'd be on such a steep hill or so close to the railway line. We were in the McDermid stand which offered a great view of the action, although the net poles were a bit frustrating. Very friendly stewards, one of whom is a Burnley ST holder! We got a couple of free bottles of water, which was nice.

I'd say you'll have a decent enough season, top half, but whether that will be enough to get up through the play-offs, I don't know. You were the 3rd best team we saw in our four games (7 Scottish sides, plus Santa Coloma). I'd have you behind Hibernian and Dundee, but better than Queens Park, Alloa, Montrose and Annan, in that order.

Not sure if that makes any of you feel any better, but I thought I'd offer my two penneth...

where you wearing your Burnley tops mate, think I saw you going in and I agree with your assessment seems pretty spot on

We need to try and formation with 2 strikers. 3 at the back  5 in midfield and 2 up top. 

Perhaps 

Musonda when fit along with Berra and Bene

We already did that with McKay when he came on a couple of games ago. We’ll be using three CB’s this season is something JMcG has already said.

Inferesting to see Kelty having tickets on sale and social media building up their game with Cowdenbeath from yesterday, whereas no communication yet from Raith.

Would hope we'd be doing what we can this week to ensure we get a 2000 crowd in for the first home league game in nearly 17 months.
