Bo'ness United 2018/19

They’ve had worse points totals


Did you make the trek up Heed?


Stevenson was unplayable at times today and scored some good goals and linked up well with josh down the right  and Gemmil had a good game won the ball back quickly to start another attack


Something yesterday that deserves praise was how Chris Donnelly was used and how Bo’ness played through the middle much more than usual. We’ve all been a bit critical when he’s had to play centre forward in the past as most of the long hopeful punts or wild crosses went sailing past him. Yesterday though, albeit against a struggling side, playing the ball on the deck through the middle into his feet with his back to goal brought out the best in Dougie playing as a centre forward. His touch and hold up play was mostly very good and he used his strength to turn their centre half very well. Haven’t seen Bo’ness use a centre forward like that probably since Faddy.

My away days are long gone pal, took the bairns for a walk instead. I knew this season was going to be bad for EU and I can’t see a big improvement for next season neither

Your right about Chris he is not easily bossed. A few seasons back he was moved up front in a match against Kelty after someone was injured and he bossed one of the best Junior centre half’s at the time Roger Duffin and not many have done that. 

McKenzie and Donnelly through the middle would do for me.

Doubt the goals would come so easily against others.

Doubt it to but perhaps we’d make and take more chances than we have been by having a strong, back-to-goal forward for the other guys to feed off instead of the usual cross in from wide and nobody on the end of it.

No doubts there but Prentice fed off well when pushed into middle.

First real test at the helm for Max today and you can't really base anything on the last two games.  One thing though, I am certain we would not have scored 15 under Kegs.

Today is a different ball game and both still feel the hurt of that semi-final earlier in the season.  Max took his Tranent team there earlier in January and came away with a 1 goal win.  That would do me fine.

Maybe 14 under Kegs? You lot hounded the guy out and I'm sure max will do a decent job with what looks like a decent squad but still kegs is getn stick !

For a lithgae fan you're awfully concerned about our ex-boss.  For your info, he was never hounded out.  Fans raising concerns is not 'hounding'.  He chose to walk right after the Tranent defeat.

The point I was making, is that with our squad Kegs never quite got the blend right, with tactics, especially subs being questionable.

Got enough problems over the hill but think he is a good manager having worked under him.

Much against my better judgment I have to agree.

Great all-round performance today.  Like watching a different team just now.  Prentice is like a new player, so much more confidence and effectiveness.  The same can be said for Ryan Stevenson too.

Dougie is having an indian summer just now and it's good to see.

For MOTM, I have to go with Michael Gemmell, he won absolutely every ball he went in for and drove the side forward in the first half especially.
