Linlithgow Rose - 2019-20

Recommended Posts

Why not think about that a moment? We were missing MacKinlay, Thom, MacKenzie and Barbour. One of the guys lined up to play central defence tweaked a hamstring before the game. One who was playing got a dead leg in the first half. How many centre halves do you think we should make available to deal with that sort of stuff? It's a pre-season run out - not an embarrassment. 
Cant believe you dignified that post with a response.

Fair point but he was option 7 or 8 and why would we take one of the trialists out of their best position when we want to see what they're capable of?

Everybody apart from Auld Heid knows that. To be honest thought TC cruised it .

Is Ruari MacLennan at centre half a regular thing? Was very surprised to see him there given the type of player he was at Clyde but thought he done well by all accounts. 

Good set up at Linlithgow and cracking view of the game from the stand. Weather got a bit wild second half so thank f**k there was cover :lol:

Ruari usually plays midfield but the Rose were down to bare bones today so he filled in at the back.

Given the list of players missing and a host of trialists such a game would was more suited to a closed doors match

Correct and a decent crowd for a friendly.

As I said before looked really comfortable there. Better than Scullion anyway who just shouts and points a lot without doing much himself. Ronald looked good too and I would have him over our #11 trialist today. Sub keeper made a few really good saves but ultimately sold himself for our goal.

Thought Ronald gave it away too often but only a friendly so not too fussed.

In more important news, steak and haggis pie was spot on.

Funny how opinions differ. I thought it was a good game with the Rose playing some decent stuff in the first half. Given the number of trialists and players out of position I was surprised that it was as entertaining as it was.

Yep, many of whom were still spending money in the town late last night. If only the game had been played behind closed doors !!

I would agree with you as we had 4 trialists to start with more coming on and a few others moved around accommodate, so to be in at all the way through was very pleasing.

Given that Clyde are at a higher level than us they should be expected to run the game but never took it by the scruff of the neck which meant we were always in it.

It's only a friendly and there is a long way to go before the season so time will tell how far we've still to go.
