I might be inviting stick from the less stable on here but in my view there were positives to be be taken from yesterday's defeat to Maryhill. 

To take the lead after losing our captain after 15 minutes to a harsh red card was more than I expected and was on the balance of play justified in my opinion.

To concede the equaliser just before half time was us reverting to type, poor defending and the procession to 3-1 down was again all self inflicted and a doing seemed inevitable.

However to get back level showed character that we have been missing and although we conceded again it's that character that gives me hope that we might avoid relegation because even this early sadly, that must be our only aim. 

As for the sending off, despite being a great servant to the the Club, it's just one of a catalogue of bookings and sending offs that Gary Bissland may look back on when he eventually hangs up his boots and thinks what the hell was I doing? So many have been totally avoidable if he'd only taken a deep breath and said nothing. He's not alone in the Junior ranks as dissent must be the number one reason for cards in my experience. But he made it easy for the ref. Having  said that the younger crop of referees seem to have been educated in Swiss finishing schools and brought up in cloud cuckoo land and never exposed to the real world of a man's game and "industrial language". Life experience doesn't seem to be a prerequisite for a whistler in the Juniors these days.

If Gary had stayed on and given us his usual contribution it would have been a different outcome I'm sure.

Heard tonight that another ex Yoker player has joined Richard Henry at Renfrew. I hope Reece McGillion does well with them. He was very under rated by our Management team. I don't think they realised what they had and certainly didn't play him often enough in my opinion.

Fine away victory at Maybole (2-3) on Saturday & a vital three points.  McBride & Maitland (2) the goalscorers.  Confident of winning at Shettleston this Saturday too.

Yes, well deserved.  Hopeful of putting a run of  results together to match recent performance levels. Good to see Maitland scoring a couple too which will be good for his and the team's confidence.

Shettleston away tomorrow, 2.00pm KO. It's quite possible we will be wearing the orange away strip.

Wow that was a tough one to watch today though the result was not unexpected given the league placings  of the sides.  A daft sending off from Howie although I think half the team's heads were down by then anyway. A slightly more spirited performance in the 2nd half at least. My first game in a few weeks.  Have we moved a few players on of late?
