Well now the hunt starts for a permanent boss.  With all respect to Shirra, someone with managerial experience is needed.

If pushed, what about Tam Courts?  Cannot deny the job he did at Kelty.

Dont get it why he resigned  
Anybody can speculate but only Kegs can answer that. Leaves Shirra in an incredibly tough position taking a team who have just lost 5-0 to Bonnyrigg.

Surprised at Kegs decision.

I'm not. 

His record since taking over P 47  W27  L12  D8 a strike rate of 57.44% make your own judgement

He worked well with AMcG as the good cop and from what I was told his coaching methods were well received by the players but our style of football is not pleasing a lot of our supporters and his resignation IMO was inevitable.

Dave the clairvoyant.

Get the players on side to start with and make sure they have a game plan. Of course that's easier said and done but as supporters we need to get behind the team.

Serious question does the committee have the drive to search for a manager befitting bo’ness to take it forward 

what strengths do you think new man needs

Yesterday was pretty close to exactly how I think the current BU squad should line up, though ideally I’d have had Snowden at RB with Gemmell and wee Dev in midfield ahead of Dougie and Comrie. (A bit harsh on Comrie as he’s played really well the last couple of games before being inexplicably subbed)

Basically my point is that I initially felt quite inspired by what Kegs was doing. However, over the course of this season there have been numerous occasions where some of the team selections and tactical decisions have been just plain baffling.

Who comes in now? I think Jambo’s shout about Tam Courts is a good one, but would he do as well without Kelty levels of finance?

Because he is a BU fan. Surely you would think the same for your team.

Can’t argue much with that, Comrie in my opinion shouldn’t have been subbed in either of the last two games, Ryan was poor yesterday even in the first half when the rest were playing well. The week before Comrie was taken off and Ryan moved into Comrie’s position and immediately BU looked weaker.

I do think yesterday was a freak result as at halftime no one at the game, no matter if they were BU or Tranent minded would have saw that coming. Bo’ness should have been out of site at halftime, poor finishing was the initial problem, then second half they collapsed after Symes mistake then the deflection off Donnelly.

Kegs:- good cop
Allan McGonagal:- bad cop
Tam Courts:- an angry Dirty Harry on angel dust.

Maybe his in your face raw aggression would suit some teams but I don't think the senior players at Bo'ness would benefit from his input.

Think Tam courts ambitions lie a bit higher than eos.going by his recent trip to Holland .

To take over a struggling team and leave with the kind of record is more than decent. Was unlucky with the cup final fiasco as well.

The BU players who are on the pitch have given 100% this season. Missing early chances and giving away soft goals has been a problem for us but we can improve.
Mon the BU's !!

I agree with that.

There aren’t many of the squad that you would want out in my opinion.

That is why Kegs has gone down a little in my estimation.  It's not as if we are in a hopeless position.  His decision to jump ship now has put a lot of added pressure on the lads. 

Let's face it, we're not going to be changing much before the end of the season.
