Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

Recommended Posts

Could have had 3 or 4 on another day with the bar three times & a missed pen. Fair play to the colts. They dug in well and put it away when needed. We were poor for large spells.

Colts team  when they have the ball are decent to watch, they looked good going forward especially first half with the Kelty defence a bit hesitant at times. As leomessi84 says Kelty had some decent chances as well, hit bar three times, missed penalty, home keepers made some good saves as well. Young lad from Dunfermline did pretty well though he was subbed at half time.

Austin could've won another penalty for you if he hadn't already went down about 56993648 times

I thought he was rotten Gogsy. As you say Kelty couldve had loads, but so could colts. Their no 11 missed 2 sitters. The referee was absolutely rotten today.
I dont mind when refs are shite if they're consistant but it today was a joke

Ill be honest if its the one second half I thought he kind off wrestled the defender to the ground first, will probably see it again on highlights.

Having seen all the main contenders for the league I have to say 5/1 BonnyRigg looks the best value.

So we're 4 or 5 games in and you've maybe seen EK kelty have off days have you seen BSC by any chance  ?

You cant compare teams having seen only one game theres 30 games over a season.

Oh and it's easy saying 5/1 Bonnyrigg now,they certainly won't be 5/1 them odds will change every week.

The Bonnyrigg team have played together for a few seasons, they have a system that works and everyone knows what they are doing. 5/1 at this time seem a bit of value is all I was saying.

Yeah but they wont be 5/1 after today's scores  🤷‍♂️ all I'm saying is prices will go up and down week in week out.

Agree theyve been together a while and know their "system" but as you know the LL tends to throw in the odd result. I reckon Bonnyrigg just lack that wee bit experience to win this league at the 1st attempt.  Just ask yersels or Kelty that.  I could be totally proved wrong of course.

Like I said earlier today there are a load of games to go! We were always going to drop points somewhere. I would expect a real reaction over the next few games if we are as good as everyone thinks.

I actually think it's a good thing for the league that everybody has dropped points 4 games in. Shows how much more competetive it is this year

Spot on! Think it will be tight until the last few games at least.

Colts aren't far away from being a really good team, probably the most skillful side counter attacking. Couldn't get control of the midfield, for long spells yesterday, so maybe that's where they need to strengthen. Easier said than done though. 

Kelty maybe lacked a wee bit subtlety in the final third, with so many shots being blocked. 

Makes for an interesting league. 

On another note, I had a great conversation, in the bar, with Gordon McKenzie, father of the Colts Chairman. Gordon played for Shire in the late 50s/early 60s and I had already interviewed him for the programme last season. Probably enough material now for a part two!

We probably deserved to win yesterday but didn’t and we will win games that we didn’t deserve to win hopefully so I’m ready for the rollercoaster of the LL it’s brilliant

Just been watching the match highlights, that McKirdy booking:huh: Not sure the goalie is off his  line when the penalty is struck either.

The booking for McKirdy was baffling. Wasn’t even a foul for me as it’s the cleanest you’ll see someone kick the ball. Plenty baffling decisions from the referee yesterday for both sides, certainly not one of the better refs at this level! I personally thought the pull on Austin in the first half was a stick on penalty, colts were happy to sit back and play counter attacking, they have pace up there and caught us out. Could have been a point gained if Reilly had managed to wipe out the colts player on the far side.

Went along yesterday as like all Shire fans I am completely #obsessed with Kelty. I don't think the conditions helped either team but both looked a bit slow. Do Kelty fans think Tuesdays heroics had an effect? Our cup tie last year was the beginning of our collapse. The new centre back looked a bit shaky and was no surprise he was taken off at HT,i always feel that when teams get money, ourselves included, they spent too much money on attackers and forget the importance of a solid defense. Cumbernauld certainly cut through Kelty a good few times in the first half. The penalty changed the game, if Kelty scored they win that comfortably because Cumbernauld looked  out on their feet after the hour mark. Agree with Pipedreamers post, Austins claim in the first half was a solid call, if he went down he gets it. His goal was well taken and even with 5 to go you still felt like it was Keltys game then poor old Thomas Reilly escorts the winger by him to win it for Cumbernauld. I'm sure both teams feel like they should've won it, especially with the two sitters Colts missed at 1-0. The result adds some drama to the league, if Cumbernauld win on Friday, are they title challengers?

Also, my head is still sore from the racket of that drum from the 'Ultras', i don't know anything about music but if drums can be out of tune then that is what i imagine it to sound like. And someone please tell them that Cumbernauld isn't wonderful.

McKirdy booking was shocking. Won the ball and the boy ran into his tackle. Madness. 

The keeper off his line comment was my fault. It looked it he was way off from the stand and I wasn't the only one that thought that. Benefit of highlights, both usual view and from behind the goal showed he wasn't. It's the way he dived forward to save it made it look that way for me.
