The East Stirlingshire Thread

Recommended Posts

Going by this thread the excitement is palpable going into this one!

One of the only good things about our recent decline is the chance to play in the first round and get to go to these different grounds. I think we should win comfortably but it’s the Scottish Cup and I’d take any form of victory. Looking forward to it and hopefully a big crowd through.

Wonder if self assemblyshire enjoyed his journey home from Broxburn. I am certainly going to enjoy my journey home from Fraserburgh .

FYI the Big Rose won 1 0 Yippee

Cmon the Rose

I took in the Broxburn v Shire game today.

Broxburn started well and went 2-0 up after 13 mins with the Shire defence all over the place. 

Shire then got a foothold in the game and started to dominate possession. Nicky Low's free kick just before halftime was reward for that pressure.

Shire continued to dominate possession in the second half and missed a couple of good chances. Only in the last 15 mins did they look susceptible on the break.

The equaliser came when it looked as if it wasn't going to be Shire's day with the clock running down.

The injury time winner was met with the expected jubilation from the home support.

Good luck to Broxburn in tomorrow's 2nd round draw.

Shire needs to learn to do things a bit quicker and taking on more shots.  Nicky Low was the best player on the park by some distance, but Broxburn stood off him far too much and let him dictate play.

Very poor show yesterday. Still not playing as a team. The defence struggled with the bounce of the ball all game and at the other end there's just not enough chances being created. Nicky Low was involved in most things but a lot of the time he was too far back in his own half. Other players just didn't turn up and Broxburn were beatable as their defence was extremely panicky when the came near the box.
Has the money been well spent or are the players bought not being managed well?
Interesting post about the game by HibeeJibee on the Scottish Cup thread where he asks if we have the angriest bench in Scottish football. Well yesterday was certainly not their finest hour with both managers getting stupid yellow cards. What he failed to mention was Andy Rodgers trying to square up to a Broxburn fan after the final whistle and having to be physically restrained. Whatever was said that's no way for the assistant manager to behave.

Andy Rodgers has serious anger issues, not what your looking for from the bench to be honest.

A lot of the players we've got in should be of good enough quality in this league, but often haven't performed.

TBH the most frustrating thing is that, despite having a sizeable squad, we seem to play the same 11 with the style every game, with the same problems cropping up time and time again. No one in this league is good enough to just steamroller everyone they come up again, league winners need to be adaptable and maximise their abilities to hamper the opposition. Teams aren't daft and will us sussed out, if they've not already. 

But thankfully it's a diddy cup and this allows us to focus on the real goal this season - the SPFL Reserve League 2

Seemingly there were a couple of Broxburn fans having a go at Nicky Low and Andy Rodgers, as they left the pitch, telling them what they were going to do to them and it was a case of "on ye go then". The supporters were then dragged away. 

That's what I was told, anyway.

Anyone know why we seem to be the only club charging for reserve games?

Cover the costs of renting the stadium out for another game I believe.

I was at reserve game last night. If Sean brown can get fit. He will be a quality signing. 

Yes, I have been impressed with Brown in the admittedly little I've seen of him. Would like to see him up front in a two with Matty Flynn, as I don't think Flynn is best used as a lone striker, but IDK who they would be willing to drop from the midfield to fit him in.

They need to use the squad more and not be scared to drop barr or drop Millar deeper. Having the big squad and reserves is a waste of time if not going to use it. Other than for getting players fit

Sean Brown looked good last night but picked up a knock so not sure where his fitness will lie for the coming weeks. Hopefully he is in the team asap, would love to see him up front with Matty Flynn as I think they would play well off of each other
