Took this game as a neutral. After 30  minutes it was clear how we are worthy champions . Only enjoyable thing to watch was the half time entertainment.

Although thought Farfar were a bit unlucky.

Unlucky my ring

They didn't score in the first half and only had half chances at best. We were the better side in the second half, more attacking minded right until the red card.
Exactly the same tactics that took us to victory at the last game.
I'm pretty sure I said exactly the same in the last posy but hope that clarifies it for you.
So we were the better side for 13 minutes? I'm sorry, but this was a game we needed to win. They didn't score in the first half because nothing happened, we did nothing. The play was mostly in our half that first half, in what world was that of any use?

Jesus, it's like banging your head against a brick wall.  We comfortably beat them last time using exactly the same tactics, the red card really wasn't part of the plan.

Great effort by both sets of fans. Could hardly get a seat in the stand!
Biggest league attendance in a long time I suspect. Can remember 2000+ New Year game with St Johnston 25 plus years ago but can't think of anything since.

Must have been 1200 or so away fans? Better than some of our home gates.

We beat them 2-1 before, in a game we weren't already a goal behind in. Of course that wasn't part of the plan, but before that we gave very little. What threat did we pose today?

It's not like we were up against anything special either. We should've been going for it. Malone who can't run tackle or pass coming on when we were overloaded on defensive players as it was defied belief. 

I've said it before no Reilly or Easton means very little creativity.

Subs were baffling that's for sure.

This is bad patter, but it’s certainly a lot better than when you used to post octopus porn on the NSFW thread. Whatever floats your boat though.

Tbf we so usually have a decent away support for bigger games. Brought 1700 to Easter Road earlier in the season.

We expended a lot of energy on Tuesday and a took a fair few knocks. Raith are FT so much as I would have liked to batter them today it was never going to be like that. We have had a decent crack at Raith every game bar the first and finished above them. Didn't work out today but let's not let the negativity in. Looking forward to strengthening the squad and kicking off in Div1 again next season.
