Strange but ladbrokes who I believe have not made any price changes on the totally scottish coupon this year (Apart from SFL & FA Cup) have made one change this week.

Bonnyrigg were Evens now 1/2

Something must be amiss ?

Read a previous post then you can.  Two (2) players (defenders) straight Reds last week and 1 still got a match to serve not available plus Hunter - centre half- injured.

Change of odds no surprise. Three Centre Half's banned Snowdon, Campbell and MacDonald. Two Centre Half's injured Hunter and El-Zubadi.
So the the centrehalfs will probably be the new signing and somebody playing out of position. Personally I think Alan Mackenzie our big forward will get the defensive jersey.

With suspensions and injuries we are down to the bare bones. We will need a lot of luck to avoid a severe beating tomorrow.

Mon the BU's !!

Were Snowdon and Campbell’s red cards merited ? As it appeared that Smith had his arms up but the Ref was behind play and he was behind play again when he gave a penalty or did he go on the say so of the linesman? 

I believe we were too late to make an appeal.

The Snowdon one is particularly annoying.  How could he be sent off for conceding a penalty, when their 'keeper got away without even a warning?  Such inconsistencies are the bane of the game.

Both sending offs were a joke but Snowden’s  was absolutely never a red  had great view off it  and the ref didn’t know so he asked his linesmen who was 20 yards behind me  and in no position to see it

I see on the conference B forum that the Lothian Thistle v Eyemouth game tomorrow is postponed because Eyemouth cannot field a team.

The BU are due at Eyemouth in a few weeks so hopefully Eyemouth get it sorted and bounce back before then.

Under current rules the referee is supposed to consider whether there was a genuine attempt to win the ball before showing a red card for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity (if it's in the box). Unfortunately - and I should stress this is absolutely not meant as a criticism of the cameraman! - the highlights from last week don't do much to clear up the controversial calls.

It's been frustrating, though, that for two weeks in a row, the referees seem to have been eager to ascribe dastardly motives to any BU indiscretions while assuming the opponents' fouls are innocent mistakes. It's hard to conclusively prove any errors. Not that that stopped me voicing my disapproval... 

Anyway, good to see Captain Dougie sounding bullish in the Evening News. The team are going to need belief tomorrow.

Campbell got a 2 game ban. Snowdon just a 1 game ban.

Comrie can play.

How's that. Did he not get a 2 game ban or did the Haddington one count towards it.

Comrie was ineligible to play in the Haddington game and the Dundonald game.

The club has been punished for him playing in the Haddington game.

Comrie is not on the banned list.

Going to be a wet pitch and a bit blustery. Hopefully the BU's can score a few goals.
2pm KO.

Mon the BU's !!

Not an outside crowd friendly day but pack out the enclosure. I’ll be ensconced in the Sponsors lounge

Need to grind out a result today with the players available and hope the Big Rose have a bad day at the office.

Given our lack of defenders today,maybe the first 2 names on the team sheet should be Marshall & Murphy:lol:

Out of interest who do you think would be the better outfield player ?

Watching the incidents on the highlights as a neutral I must say that it looks like the referee got the big decisions correct.

Campebell RC - it's hard to tell due to the camera angle - but if you slow it down you can see the referee is looking at the players, when the Bo'ness player brings his arm out in front and swings it back into his opponent's face when alongside.  I think the phrase used by the refs would be "using it as a weapon" which is a RC for excessive force.

Snowdon RC - he puts his arm across the attacker's neck and it looks like he brings him down (partially obscured) - if the ref thinks it is a foul he must send him off as it's denial of an obvious goal scoring opportunity, with no attempt to play the ball.

Though I would say that Dundonald's GK should probably have been given a YC at the penalty, so either the referee didn't think it was an obvious goal scoring opportunity or he just forgot.

Not quite but hoping to graduate to that but the spam  will do for starters.
