Linlithgow Rose 2017-18

Has to be the worst goalkeeping performance for some time for the Rose from a keeper who is normally a safe pair of hands.  Was to blame to some extent for all of the goals he conceded although others were clearly also culpable.

On the plus side Ruari was immense,  Sticky looked back to his best and Roddy did everything right apart from his finishing.  Good to see Ronald back, real quality on the right.

chance next week to put this weird result behind us.  However Blackburn will be physical and we will have to be at our best.

I have no concerns over our keeper - thankfully he has had more good  than bad games.  Saturday was a one-off.

For a 1st post to be on a thread that's nothing to do with the team you support - that makes sense..!!

The majority of Bonnyrigg chatter happens elsewhere not on here.

Hearing Blackburn are making every effort to clear their park for Saturday - so hats off to their efforts to get the game on. (Albeit the snow back on and trying its hardest to ruin it.)

What efforts are they making??? Their Facebook page says NO snow is to be cleared from the pitch.

Speaking to a guy previously on their committee - he indicated they were seeking assistance from their community club.

Assistance does appear to have been sought but someone has put their foot down and publicly said nobody is to try and clear the snow.

I guess that you're referring to the above and to a very similar post on the Blackburn United Facebook page. I understand that the Club have made an inspection of the pitch and that frost has penetrated below the reasonably thick blanket of snow covering it and is catching the fibres of the carpet, making removal of the snow something that might consequently damage the carpet and impact on it's use going forward. It's all a rather moot point perhaps with even more snow now falling in and around West Lothian.

If that's the case I suspect the chances of a game are nil. Especially as it's not just the pitch needing cleared. Looks like next weekend it is!

Can't see many games even on astro being on. We are meant to be at Broxburn and with what its like in Falkirk it will probably be a lot worse in west lothian.
