Well what a performance and result from the Big Rose today.

I think the final score was 3-1

Wonder if this thread will now go into meltdown !!!

So just a two goal win today, poor stuff. :)

Looks like going to be a tighter league than people thought. Kilby losing 3-1 @ home to caledonian braves

Dont think anyone thought it was going to be anything but a tight league. The general chat before a ball was kicked was how many decent sides there were that could go on and win it.

Not the end of the world as some people are making out. Bonnyrigg away was always going to be a difficult game, our run upto the first Scottish cup break is a very difficult one and as long as we make it to that without losing too much ground on the league leaders then I think we can be pleased. The loss today just makes the EK and Kelty games a lot more important.

The worrying thing is that’s twice the players haven’t turned up against better teams. It’s all fine and well putting 9 past Gretna but if you don’t turn up against the big boys then it makes it redundant. Just shows you can have all the money in the world but it doesn’t change the way players play in big games. I just wonder when the Shire will ever win a big match, bunch of bottle merchants.

If Kelty manage to sneak a win at Annan( no laughing at the back there ;)) on Tuesday then the game on 7th September would have to be rearranged.

Can't fault the Shire players today, they certainly didn't "bottle it". 

For those of us who were actually at the game, it was a decent match to watch. Shire were pressing for most of the game, created enough chances and if there's any criticism it's failing to hit the back of the net. Bonnyrigg are a tough team to break down and counter attack well. 

The strikers are, what you would call, "cute" and the officials "obliging". 

Good goal Shire scored, through sharp passing and Bonnyrigg's third goal was well struck.

I wish I shared your optimism but can’t remember rose’s keeper making a save. In this league you need to win the battle first and in that respect we were defo 2nd best.

It was a totally different game from the cup tie last season, where we failed to turn up. 

The difference between the teams today was that Bonnyrigg took advantage of the set pieces they "won", for the first two goals. 

We battled hard enough, missed the target too often but it wasn't to be our day. Wasn't a great deal between the teams.

Some big names in the reserve team tonight, hard to believe shire were 12/1 last night before the bookies clocked on. We’ll see how we get on tonight but great to see Dyer and Brown back.

Are bookies taking bets on reserve games? Surely not.

I've said it before but it always surprises me they do. Is it limited at all... small stakes, accumulators, or whatever? Having been idle on Saturday, clearly it was ripe for 'Shire to play a strong XI.

As far as i’m aware and from my experience there is no restrictions and it’s just the same any other regular football market
