Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

Recommended Posts

Kelty could and should have been multiple goals in front today with the chances they had. Vale of Leithen came to play for a draw and got it. Strange seeing a team time wasting a matter of minutes after kick off though! Ross Mutch was fantastic and ran all day. Dodd looks to be a classy player and created some great chances first half also. A frustrating day which sees us fall 7pts back from EK and 4pts from BSC. Another tough tie at Edinburgh Uni to come next week.

Come on give Vale  a bit of credit, yes they set up with a defensive system, however what would you expect when they had 11 of their playing pool missing, their manager having to play the full 90 mins and with only a trialist  the bench.

They  stuck to their task and frustrated Hearts into playing long balls and rode their luck a few times from headers with the goalie producing a few decent safes.

Sometimes when you put the effort and commitment in you deserve a break and a point for Vale under the circumstances was deserved.

ps you have a good wee setup at Kelty.

Said it before the team was averaging three goals a game earlier in the season, last seven games its nine goals in total and four of them were in extra time. Still nothing to worry about. :whistle

Kelty still have to play EK twice though, however, on current form you couldn’t see Kelty taking 6 points.

Frustrating day at the office, should have won but Vale played a defensive game from the start.

Ross Mutch played really well today, as did Skip. Good to see Brian Ritchie getting some time too.

Missed Cargy, Hubby & Ciaran today especially on set pieces.

369 was the attendance.

From the EK games or rest of season?

Turned into a decent game once Kelty realised they weren't actually guaranteed a goal with about half an hour to go.

Vale of Leithen are obviously a bit shit and they rode their luck but Kelty's finishing was very poor for such a good team I felt. The main striker (no 9?) seemed to go to ground very easily every time the ball went near him in the box as well. On the positive side, thought the wee right winger was great to watch - he must be deadly on the break against teams that are less hemmed in than Vale were.

Very disrespectful in my opinion. To call any team “ a bit shit” smacks of arrogance, and gives them no credit for carrying out their game plan successfully.

Don't get me wrong - by the end of the game I was definitely rooting for Vale, having come in as a neutral, and credit to them for getting a result. That said, yesterday was far more about Kelty being poor than it was about Vale playing well - even by the yardstick of 'carrying out a game plan'.

Everything wrong with the Scottish game.  To win  a league or a game, you have to be able to beat the opposition. Irrespective of what set up they play, you (Kelty) with your position in the table, level of players, higher money, should be able to beat a vale team missing a lot of players. With their manager also playing 90 mins, tells me more about Kelty,s weaknesses and lack of tactical awareness. 

Blaming an opposition set up shows a real lack of class, champions act with class.

Well done to all the Vale players and Ando who with his UEFA A background would have set up Vale to be hard to beat. Our friends at Kelty with a Scottish legend and playing and managing in the premier league. Goes to show, " Being a good student does not mean you are a good teacher"  maybe Kelty could work on breaking down a " LOW BLOCK" at training this week, Edin uni under Dorian will again be well set up.

Highlights are up. God knows how many chances Kelty would have missed if Vale hadn't defended well. :)

Some supporters have come on and given an opinion, unless Kelty have made an official comment about vale, how can they be accused of no class. Kelty played 90 mins couldn’t break them down, shook hands and got changed.
Some folk get away excited

Ask you for Gaffer, what’s was said to the Vale Contingent after the game. Lack of class.

Do pay attention, I speak from an objective vantage can point. Kelty played a long ball game all lads season, am not knocking it. It’s all evidential on your highlights.

I did notice, at start of this season, Tam had them playing a build up game.  This is an opinion having watched Kelty many many times. 

I have nothing against Kelty, well run club,  good people.

Sometimes, it’s good to show opposition credit,  when results does not go your way.
