Bo'ness United 2018/19

I understand it was a thigh muscle injury, he felt it go on the penalty run-up.  Up to 8 weeks was the estimate I heard.

Now I know that both Wright and McKenzie were absent today - both at weddings - why wasn't Rintoul given a chance. Keast was then injured taking the penalty and had to go off- why wasn't Snowdon given the chance to atone for his last penalty miss? - and we replace him with a defensive midfielder and still no Rintoul. He then substitutes Prentice for Watt - who IMO did not look fit - still no Rintoul. Now I don't know if Jacobs had taken a knock but to substitute him for Gray was IMO a poor move as the guy is not fit. 

Rintoul has bags of energy and would have been an ideal target for an out ball but no he brings on two unfit players in Watt and Gray. If we were 4 or 5 up yes but hanging on 2-1 it was madness. 

My MOTM split between Gemmell and Morgan. As Sheep says 3 pts and I agree but the man management in that game was terrible.

Hunter6 where are you?

Lol, still having a wee peak from time to time but have enough problems at Arthurlie to worry about you guys. Having said that it looks from afar that there are a few of yous just waiting for Stevie to fail . I could understand it if you guys have been successful recently but you haven't. I saw yous last season v Hurlford and thought you were robbed that day. Spoke to a few fans and they seemed happy with what Kegs was doing. Get behind your team for goodness sake, you are actually complaining about an away win. Said what i think and wont be looking in anymore. All the best.

Crossgates again on Saturday.....3 weeks in a row v the same opposition due to cup ties. Complacency the biggest danger. If the BU players do their jobs we will win. Mon the BU's !!!

Cloudy day for the fans but good Fitbaw weather for the players. No more than a light breeze should mean the BU's can play some silky stuff and run the Primrose ragged.

No wedding dos planned for today I hope and we'll have nearly a full squad to pick from.  Complacency is a danger, remember we've only won by a goal each time and you can certainly say the first was a draw in 90 mins.

Our backs to use their heads to great use from good deliveries from Morgan (or whoever). :thumsup2

Jings we made tough work of that. Crossgates down to 8 men but should have been 7 or less IMO.
Playing the same team 3 weeks in a row is bound to lead to niggles and feuds across the park.

Striker required. Urgently

That's it in a nutshell.  We have the players to do the leading up work but the only players putting the ball in the net are our centre-backs.  We have to look for a natural goal-scorer.

For instance, the lad that scored for them yesterday, when down to 8 men.  He never stopped and got his reward being in the right place at the right time.  There are others out there but we have to do some business soon, not just sit on our hands.

Back to yesterday.  There were some ugly challenges, with Gemmell bearing the brunt of them.  The first sending off was being contested by their bench, then Michael lifted his shirt to show the stud marks on his chest!

Let us just hope the other cups don't pair us together at any stage.

How can 8 men get out of their own half

Well if you pile forward like wee schoolboys - all looking for a goal - you leave yourselves open to a quick break and they had a player who was and nicked a goal.
