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

Shoves used to play centre half and left back to a decent level as well as in goals when he was under 16.

Would be interesting to find out why we were so many players missing today. We know who were suspended or injured. Maybe the club could enlighten us!!

Boness 1 Bonnyrigg 4. With 3 centrehalfs suspended, 2 forwards at a stag weekend, two players phoning in sick and players out injured it was always going to be a difficult game. Some BU players looked to be playing through the pain barrier.
We only had two subs namely Hogg the coach and Murphy the goalie.

How the Bonnyrigg no 4 didn't get a straight red for swinging his elbow into the face of Morgan will always be a mystery.

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

It doesn’t have to be a clear goal scoring opportunity to get a red if he made no attempt to play the ball.

Murphy just back from holiday late last night, don’t know how match fit he would have been.

Aye you’re on the wrong thread. Again.

Thought Bonnyrigg would win today given our lack of players available, but that score absolutely flattered them IMO. I seen very little about them that suggested to me that we wouldn’t give them a good game of it had all our players been available.

 

Great pass, cross and finish for Bonnyrigg’s first goal, as was the ball in from the free-kick for their third.

Firstly, nothing but praise for the eleven who turned out today,  Hunter & Andy Shirra not really fit to play, Dev only 15 mins and 1 training session since returning from injury.  Andy having to phone his brother Jamie, just back from working in the Shetlands and hasn't kicked a ball in months.  Players out of position.  All of that looked a recipe for disaster, instead we got a fighting performance that did all of them justice.  The final score did not do them justice

My ire is reserved for those who plan stag do's and call off late for flimsy reasons and basically forget they are meant to be committed to a club.  You may say 'why should they, it's only EOS level, not Premier League'  but that is disrespecting the likes of Michael Gemmell who came off a night shift to play and often does.....because he's committed.

One of the players was going loopy about certain players missing for various reasons 
Quite right. Get them telt !!!

Had the BU's been able to field a fully fit best XI we would have given Bonnyrigg a game.

Thought we did alright under the circumstances, and the scoreline was a tad harsh - although I suspect Bonnyrigg could have lifted it a bit if required. But I'd echo the praise for those who pulled on their boots for the cause despite injury, lack of fitness etc. 

Bonnyrigg should go on and win the conference at a canter. Hopefully we can get back to winning ways soon after three (league) games without a victory, although of our results so far only the draw with Haddington was a genuine disappointment. 

Nice to see some away fans as well...

We were right in line with the player who crossed the ball for the first goal and he was at least a yard offside before it was played to him.

Credit to the guys who played yesterday. 

On the betting front Ladbrokes were still giving evens about Bonnyrigg at midday yesterday.

For me the best XI for the BU' s is Murphy Snowdon Sime Campbell Hunter,. Gemmell , Morgan, Shirra. Mackenzie, Keast and Wright.
Although 5 of them were in the team yesterday a couple of them were out of position and Hunter played although unfit.
Biggest problem was our toothless attack.

Not the end of the world not may teams will take anything of the Rose this season, looking strong. Suppose that’s the benefits of having a settled side last few years
