Bo'ness United 2018/19

Recommended Posts

Good all-round performance by the BU's against Dundonald. Comfortable win v 10 men. Their big defender was on a yellow when MacKenzie (my MOTM) knocked it past him and he clattered him leaving the referee no option but to dish out a 2nd yellow.

BU the better side by a wide margin today.

Night and day from last week, some fine performances across the park. Playing Dundonald seems to suit us - arguably our three best games this season have been against them. Only disappointment is that we didn't win by the margin we should have, but the main thing is it's a big three points ahead of two very tricky away games.

The difference from last week is that Dundonald didn't park the bus, even when down to 10, unlike Tynecastle last week.  The return of Brian Morgan was a big help too.

Their 'keeper was undoubtedly MOTM with one save at the end from Tiwi being outstanding.

Certainly more urgency today and a huge 3 points.

Bo'ness had them on the back foot from the off with everything coming down the enclosure side - well played to Dundonald management for trying to change it so early with a substitution. Just a shame for them that Wedderburn is a numptie and committed a stupid second bookable right in front of the lino about 3 minutes later, mind you the same lino missed Hunter nearly having his ankle taken off from about 2 yards away from the incident.  Also thought United should have had a pelanty in the first half when the Bluebell player fell on the ball and clearly scooped it only to have the foul given against the United player.

Cracking finish for the first and a lovely double somersault and triple pike from has-been Calum Smith when he was "fouled" being the highlights.

Good performance from quite a few BU players today which was pleasing. However my MOTM would be Dundonald’s goalkeeper, who made several brilliant saves. Could’ve been 6 or 7 for Bo’ness today if it weren’t for their goalie.

Well, I’m fcuking ragin’ after that today. We’ve no leadership on the park or off the park at both coaching and committee level. If Kerrigan is not sacked then he should be man enough to resign. His player recruitment, apart from Syme, Morgan and McKenzie has been abysmal. All the other players he has brought in have not been good enough – Gray, Prentice, Watt, McMullen, McDonald, Comrie, Marshall and Aldin. I’ll exclude Sweeney and Tiwi from that list, but if he thinks that 18 year old boys are the answer to our lack of fire power up front then he’s coaching at the wrong level.

Let’s face it, Kerrigan should never have been appointed in the first place. It was the easy option for the committee but it appears to be laziness on their part not to invite applications for the post. However since the appointment there has been numerous occasions when he should have been sacked. 

•    10 February 2018, losing 4-1 away to a ten man Broughty Ferry
•    His tactics in the replay at Hurlford after going one goal up
•    Losing the last three league games of the 2017/18 season
•    Failure to recruit a goal scorer – I know they are hard to come by but Kerrigan has come nowhere near getting someone who might be what we need
•    Putting Hunter up front near the end of the game against Jeanfield – it was desperation not tactics
•    Narrowing the pitch at Newtown
•    Letting an eight man Crossgates score against us and hanging on at the end. This to me was the worst of the sacking offences.
•    Today
•    The overall disciplinary record this season which has been shocking

I’ll not include the first half performance at home to Tynecastle or the game at Sauchie as I wasn’t there.

There are more. See the comments above about team selection and set up and tactics. He is quite clearly out of his depth. He has taken Bo’ness backwards

Felt compelled to look in and saw this post, are you having a Laugh pal ! Joke of a post and an attitude that we ill see you lose a one of the best managers going about.

Don't understand "3 valuable points" attitude, the team has only lost one league game from 13 played what's his problem?

Nothing that will affect Camelon so relax and go about your business.

Glad its a scheduled away game this week because I wouldn't fancy the chances of Newtown being playable if this weather continues!

Quick question for the BU fans, seen lots of teams applying for licensing in the EoS many smaller than yourselves but I heard BUs not applying at the moment, is there a reason you’re holding off this at the moment?
