Guess this thread is probably the best place to put this question, who makes your Team of the Decade? Had a good chat about this today with Jambo and Dave and we came up with a

4-3-3 of

Murphy/Jamieson

Snowdon Duffin McQueen Hunter

Shirra Gemmell Sloan

Walker Hislop Gribben

 

Never decided on a bench, but personally I would have one of the two keepers above plus, Stevenson, Campbell, Wright, Keast.

1984 and just 3 weeks after the pair met in the drawn League Cup Final, The BU's travelled to Bonnyrigg for the replay.  The first game was 4-4, this went one better and finished 5-5!  The game was decided by penalties and the Rose triumphed 4-3.  The BU scorers were Tommy Caldwell, Lex Shields, Lindsay Hamilton and Jim Sinnet, who scored two including a penalty.

The team was: Henderson, Dunleavie, Breen, Carroll, Caldwell, Reid, Shields, Beaton, Sinnet, Hamilton, Robertson (Kerr) sub Young

1978 and a one and only visit to Market Park, home of Crieff Earngrove for a Junior Cup 2nd Round tie.  The BU's had struggled against Arbroath Vics in the previous round and did so again, only managing a goalless draw.  There was no hint the club would reach the Final that season.

The team was: Howie, Robertson, McQueen, Miller, Stewart, Boyd, Craw, Masterton, Eddie, Reid, Shields (Dunleavie) sub Millar

Wullie, I was pushing for Hunter at Centrehalf rather than Left Back. Flea in at Left Back.
Hissy9 out with Faddy in at no 9.

Seing as 433 is what everyone else has went with. Peak Shirra, just, over Nimmo as he was more of a goal threat, no one season wonders or I'd have Scott Pittman there as he was a fabulous player.

Christie

Snowdon
Fleming
Hunter
Duffin

Gemmell
Shirra
Philp

Hislop
Mcfadgen
Walker

Subs
A. Murphy
Campbell
P Murphy
Nimmo

What about your favourite player of the last few seasons Mr Cropley?

I think  Dougie deserves a place on the bench

2005 saw the visit of Junior Cup holders and League leaders Tayport to Newtown Park.  When I add that centre-half Simon Vella had to go in goal for 70 minutes due to the BU's 'keeper being stretchered off, you would be forgiven for expecting the worst.  However, the BU's scored in 23 mins when a Brigain cross was put into his own net by Gunnion.  To the 2nd half where surely things would change?  Well no, the BU's came out fighting and Kevin Donnelly added a 2nd, 10 mins into the half.  With 15 mins to go George O'Boyle added a 3rd before Marc Anthony put the icing on the cake In the last minute.  4-0.

The team was:  Orr (Ward), Brown, Russell, C Martin, Vella, Smith, Brigain, Donnelly, Winning (Anthony), O'Boyle (Fowler), Parkin

no place for Declan McAvoy or Chris Mackie in this duds 11? Inclusion of Mark Cowan is more than a bit unfair as he actuallu did contribute some goals for us in the time he wasn't injured. Also harsh on Mark Peat when Connor Wallace was around this decade

Peat and Cowan were the galacticos of my 11.

Chris "tired of football" Mackie, Darren "homesick for Sauchie" Cummings , Connor "someone shouted at me at training so I'm not playing" Wallace and Coco "lazy wage thief" Strickland are all worthy of a place in that team.

What about your favourite player of the last few seasons ?

For sheer consistency of performance Stuart big game Hunter. So many important blocks, tackles and clearances. Best defensive header of a ball in the league. Strong, physical, experienced and strong in the tackle. A danger to opponents at freekicks and corners. Possessing a dangerously long throw and always willing to give helpful advice to the officials. A proper footballer who brings out the best in those around him.

I think Stuart's level of performance since he came back from retirement has been superb, imo better than when he first signed. So consistent as you say.

That was definitely one of the weirdest games I've ever been to! Think they went on to win the league too...

1965 and it was Junior Cup 2nd Round day.  Kilsyth Rangers were the visitors to Newtown, the third time we had been drawn against them in seven years.  Eventually the BU's won out by 4-2, the star of the day being hat-trick hero Peter Caproni and at that time, no show was complete without Archie Meikle adding his name to the scoresheet.

The team was: Preston, Blackley, Gellatly, Broome, Chambers, Myles, Caproni, McFarlane, Meikle, McLeod, Komorowski
