Given the opposition and the fact it was a testimonial match, the lads could easily have settled for the 4-0 at HT, its good to see a ruthless streak in the team that kept going till the end, and Murray being not pleased about the goal we lost

Get Paterson signed up, doesn’t get a nose bleed going forward, can actually beat his man and put in a half decent cross, already an instant upgrade IMO, have dick as backup LB/4th or 5th choice CH when Murray brings his own in

Got to be mindful of the opposition but a lot of positives to take. Patterson clearly likes to play high and took his goal really well and certainly seems a talent. 
 

Eastons movement and variation of play is excellent. Obviously his goal was a peach but loved how he always wanted the ball. I actually think his movement could really benefit Zanatta.

 

Brown and Stanton, if they stay fit are going to be a really solid midfield together. 
 

I’m tempering the fact it was just a bounce match but the signs are there. The way they pressed and the little passing passages. 

Liked what Mitchell showed, a head for finding a spot near the goal mouth and took advantage. At Bo’ness he was most often played in on a deep pass and used his speed to get to it and score, nice to see he has a feel for poaching too. I’m hopeful for him next year.

Hoping what Davie and co said is true and that the top we were wearing today was indeed just a training top. If it was a training top I'm suspecting the new top must have some sky blue in it somewhere. I've got the fear already. 

As for the game. Some good goals there. Eastons the pick of the bunch but good finishes by Mitchell and Paterson. 

Any ideas why Spencer and MacDonald weren't included in the line up?

I was hoping we had left the sky blue nonsense behind us when we moved to Joma. The home top should be navy and white. No other colours necessary.

Spencer don’t know, and I’m sure Jamie MacDonald was away to family wedding or some family event

Hopefully he can prove that’s he’s worth a shout in the first team.

I’m hoping for the navy strip with white sleeves

sorry I keep forgetting to multiquote.

Thomson for that goal though....... Never been convinced by him I'm afraid, and that hasn't helped. We need a solid back up for JM.

Sorry what was wrong with Thomson at the goal.  His starting position is exactly where you want him to be when the ball is at the half way line, It was a good strike by the boy.  

Ffs It was the first pre season game and people are moaning already

Cut above, offers a lot going forward

Speaking about offers, Brodys Mum and Dad were stood next to me said that hes considering his options with a few offers on the table already wouldn't say if we were one of them but the fact he got game time would indicate we have.

Looked very good going foward, despite Liam Dick constantly having a go at him for pushing up.
