Have the Rose missed a wee trick in bringing Thistle into the club with the u20 league and amateur team.

Well run and self sufficient already. If Bo'ness to it it will only be a good thing imo.

Yes I think rose have missed a trick here which should help Bo’ness united

I guess politically the CC already have an amateur team as well but Thistle are one of the best run in the country and competing at a higher level.

The difficulty for Thistle and Bo'ness here is that Thistle are a Linlithgow Bridge Club and well supported from that area. Not sure that'll translate if they become Bo'ness.

You miss the point - the mere fact there is competition puts strain on resources.   People may also stop travelling as they can watch a "Bo'ness Utd" at Newtown Park every week.  


I can see the potential in the idea of generating income at Newtown every Saturday, but would fans of the Senior side chuck a change of scenery every other other Saturday? A good away day is a big attraction for most folk. I doubt many would like to see the Senior team have no support at away games either. A good support can be like a 12th man sometimes so they say.

Ryan Stevenson has re-signed for us
I enjoyed watching him play for us last season. Higher up the park the better IMO. He doesn't have the defensive strength of say a Gemmell or Donnelly but he gives a bit extra pace and penetration going forward.
Welcome back Ryan.

Welcome back Ryan.

He likes a shot from outside of the box, I'm not saying he scores much, but he likes a shot or two.

A new venue for the BU's to visit today and there seems to be a host of midfield options.  Hopefully Gemmell is restored there as he is not a centre-back!

Every game needs to be won just now, to cement a place in the top 5.

Certainly not taking it for granted as Tynecastle began the match at Newtown in fine fashion.

Relegated last season...They are hardly flying high 1 division above the CC ams
All the players they paid while doing well moved on to pennies 
Fair enough. My point still stands though. I've not seen a team in our area being run as well and I used to run one of them!

0-0 FT. Thank feck the referee has blown the whistle and brought that game to an end. Dreadful watching. Tynecastle keeper had a good save from a Hunter header in 93 minutes and that was the total sum of the BU's efforts. Struggling to think of a MOTM to be honest.
Tynecastle set up to keep a clean sheet and the BU's didn't have the guile or drive to break it down.

Awful.

The truly dreadful thing is that - for all that we had most of the game - I can't honestly say that we should have won. Take away that late Hunter chance and we made nothing. Without wishing to be overly dramatic (but you know I'm about to be...!) , that's our worst result in many years, and in due course it could prove to be extremely damaging.

First half was piss poor, second half was poor! Can’t for the life of me think why Dev was dropped from right back for MacDonald?
Bo’ness were slightly better second half after Tiwi was replaced by Alan at half time!

Poor team set-up, with all the midfield wanting to play further back.  I would have expected Stevenson to be deployed further forward, where his pace could have been damaging but instead he sat back.  

No penetration up front but not surprising as little service was provided.  They stuck 11 men behind the ball and we hadn't a clue what to do.

Definitely missing Morgan just now but one man isn't going to solve our problems.
