The "mitigating circumstances" comment was the exact phrase used to describe the game at the weekend by a fellow BSC fan.

Braves currently have three defenders injured (including McDowall in that)

He was their only natural CB, so yes, I would say it definitely affected them, losing him just before kick off. 

As I mentioned, I think BSC would have won anyway and they could have have put the same amount past Braves, if he was playing, I don't know, it wasn't meant as a comment to take anything away for BSC's performance but surely having no natural center back wouldn't have helped. 

McMillan missing for them games would have been mentioned but perhaps not on P&B. 

I get the point your making Rampant. I just don't see how 1 outfield change can be the difference between beating the reigning champions one week and getting battered by us the next.

Either way, mate. Fantastic from BSC. Puts them back in the picture after the defeat to Colts. Think it will be the case most of the season with top teams taking points of each other.

Could you gents take this debate to the scotstoun stadium thread please. Many thanks.

Sorry John. In any case how did you manage to loose to a team with only one defender ? 😂

So alongside not being able to mention they don't have as many fans as other teams in the league, you also can't imply the other team might have been weakened if BSC beat them handsomely without someone kicking off. Will bear that in mind.

Jerry getting hissy when people say anything bad about BSC, well I never!

At least I try to present a reasoned argument rather than the guff you spout Craigie boy.

Season 2019/2020 - Matchday 6:

East Kilbride FC   5 - 0 Edinburgh University

(Woods 32, Winter 65, Malcolm 80, Paton 81, Malcom 92)

On paper this probably looked to most like a straightforward result.  A big victory against a team with 1 victory from their opening 6 matches.

The truth is it was closer, for most of the game, than the score suggests.

EK were sluggish and didn't create many clear cut chances in the first half.  The opener was a shock in the sense that Paul Woods not only hit a shot BUT he hit it from outside the box (a rarity). He should try it more often.  How Edinburgh Uni failed to score is hard to fathom, we game them plenty of encouragement and they had some decent players including the 3 youngest looking players I've ever seen in LL.  I can't even believe they've left secondary school so must be in for next year on unconditionals.

Carmichael is a talented player and I suspect he'd be amazing at 5's but for all the skill I sense that more often than not the ultimate result is Oh...so close but just too short/long/hard/soft with the final ball.

Sean Winter has shown over multiple seasons that if you give him chances he will score.  He got one decent cross today and he scored from it.

Homer and Anton are classy players (and again would destroy mere mortals in a five-a-side setting) but they both tend to play deep and like to slow the game down.

On yesterday's showing we still have a lot of improving to do to mount a title challenge.

East Kilbride sign George Stanger on loan from Hamilton. Great signing for you.

It certainly sounds good but I have to wonder why a guy playing at that level is prepared to drop down four levels?

Fair question Judge. He played a full 90 vs Motherwell this season as well as challenge cup games. Would have thought a loan to L1/2 would make more sense. Good for EK though!!

I believe there's the possibility of another [free agent] addition to the EK squad, here's hoping.

Heard this too. 

How is Dean Cairns doing? Noticed like some others, he's covering in midfield and at the back? Decent player? Thoughts?
