Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Squad will be very thin today. Noticed that in the tighter games (v Ross County and Alloa), McPake hasn’t brought on the young guys and only brought on MacDonald in an emergency situation (Benedictus injured). With Hamilton out, the only ‘senior’ subs we’ll have is Todorov and MacDonald. Not a great way to start the league campaign.

Expect Alloa to start with Scougall further forward, as he was in the second half last week. But they have subs that can change the game. We really don’t right now.

Alloa had 2 less players on the bench last week than us, quick check shows 4 of them are youth players with about 5 appearances between them. The other 2 were king and Robertson who I'd agree are experienced and could change the game.

Tickets on sale for Meadowbank next week. Have to go to the Fanbase app (used by Hamilton last season). Go to the FC Edinburgh page, and go to the ‘store’. It will show as ‘ no tickets available’, but if you click on ‘events’ near the top, away tickets are available to buy.

£18 to stand round the pitch. Makes £20 at EEP seem like a bargain!

Pybus wasn't shite. He was good at nicking the ball off folk and keeping it simple. Not a flair player but a decent defensive midfielder. I would kept him.

He worked hard and seemed to be physically fit. I can't criticise the guy's effort but you'd have to grade on a really generous scale to describe him as anything other than "shite".

Remember if the queue is a bit long to collect the new season ticket you should have an electronic version sent to your email.

£18 is an absolute joke. But thanks for the heads up!

Indeed, we are also short on numbers and experience. Andy Graham suspended today and with Durnan and Howie injured that leaves us light in defence as well.

Cheers. Was just trying to figure out if you needed to collect a new card and/or if you could just use the PDF.

Aye the electronic ticket should be enough, that's what I have anyway 😅 will eventually get round to pick up the new card.

The main thing is not to use the old one

Durnan? Mark Durnan? Rather he was playing!

He did very well for us last season despite dodgy reviews from fans of some of his former clubs.  Centre back is one area where we are well covered but think 3 of the 4 are unavailable today.

4 center backs!  Incredible.

Big improvement second half today. Got very lucky with the goal, but think we edged it on the balance of play. Wasn’t pretty, but got to be happy with a win. 3-5-2 looked a much better shape with the players we have. Giving McCann a partner up top and having someone in behind them worked well. Played much more direct and were unlucky on a few occasions. More of the same next week please.

Thought the fitness difference was noticeable compared to this time last season. It was a hot day by Scottish standards and after the double substitution you’d have been forgiven for thinking Lewis McCann had just come on. Put so much effort and aggression into the late stages.

McCann going down with cramp and then making 50 yard sprints is commendable. 

should of had an assist today, fantastic work until Todorov fucked it.

Ok m8. I’m absolutely sure the events 61 years ago has notable relevance today
