Linlithgow Rose - 2019 onwards


Recommended Posts

Interesting, suggestion was Thom barged his opponent in passing - followed by an exaggerated collapse from the Sauchie player.
Can't argue either way as didn't see the incident.
Thom again has cost the club dear with his actions in a big game.
Baur's actions beyond stupid.
For me the question is why again we are changing 5 players for every game - we should always start with our strongest 11.

Squads win trophies.

Last night we had four fit outfield subs which shows that players get stretched this part of the season especially our front players at tempo.

McMinn for me is really struggling and as much as it’s nice to see him get a run I think he should be moved on. Decent save last night but the missed catch in the top c and the third goal pretty much sun up what I’ve seen of him this season. Totally lacking confidence and needs to drop a level and start enjoying it again. That will translate to the defence and we leak goals especially when Shaw isn’t in there.

Apologies for missing both red card incidents - I didn’t even realise Baur had been sent off until he didn’t come back on for the second half - but highlights here:

Not often I’ll comment but, regarding the changes to the team last night, players were cup-tied so some changes had to be made in any case.

I didnt see it but was told by an ex Rose player that it was a flying elbow and stone wall red card.

You slated the performance at Hill of Beath and then query why we made changes. How many of those dropped had injuries ?

No I didn't slate the performance at HoB.  We're you even there?

My point on rotation has been consistently one of not being a fan.  I would prefer where possibly to watch our strongest 11 start, with the use of subs.

In recent games we have been slow getting into any rhythm - again last night Sauchie started stronger and we grew into the game.

We're does not make sense in that context. I didn't need to be there to know you said the following;

You said we didn't match their endeavour.

You said we didn't compete well enough.

You said we lost to (sic) many battles.

If that was the case then surely the manager should have made changes.

Injuries and cup-tied?

Liam Allison has been recalled from Blackburn, sadly.

Discussed that with a couple of Blackburn guys last night. Was a matter of time.

That today is embarrassing! For me it’s now a two horse race!

You surely arenae a Linlithgow supporter? 

Granted, with the 6 matches remaining, it will be a tall order for The Rose to win the league. But they surely still have a chance. Two matches against Tranent and one against Penicuik - the only 2 other teams that can win league apart from Linlithgow. Win all three and who knows... 

I was talking with a Premier league player today and he said Linlithgow were clearly the best team his side had playEd against this season.

It’s just my opinion! They are not the best defensively and will drop more points!

I wouldn’t write anyone of the top 3 off at the moment.  Sure Lithgae have the hardest run in.  But results are always strange at this time of year.  When Lithgae were chasing there was little pressure now it’s different.  All three contenders will be feeling it.

Personally I think Tranent are the best, but they were more edgy and not as free flowing against Broxburn at Tranent than when they blew them away earlier in the season.

Still all to play for!

A Lithgy supporting friend of mine feels there may be an element of “lulled into a false sense of security” as the majority of the long unbeaten run was fixtures against sides Lithgy would be expected to beat, albeit they won most much more convincingly than many expected.

Rose were on a great run but that's a few bad results recently.

What's the cause of this dip in form ? Poor defending, tactics or injuries ?

After Inverkeithing, we have started to make wholesale changes every week.

John Millar stated today changes aren't the issue and he has confidence in the squad. Whilst I appreciate that view.

Surely if you have confidence you don't need 5 changes every week.  You should start with your strongest available and if needed use your subs to change or freshen.

We have not become a bad team, we have however lost our mojo.

Every confidence we can still salvage something from the season.

I think there is an element of that but we did take out Spartans, Penicuik and the Shire in the cups, good wins at home to Jeanfield and away to Broxburn and Musselburgh.

I think it’s mainly due to having not quite the squad to plough on all fronts and losing Docherty to injury has been the biggest turning point. Stowe is a much better player when he is playing.

That and 21 wins in a row is phenomenal, that got us back in the race but very hard to keep that going at that pace all season.

Still think we have it in us to grab silverware but needing a couple slip ups again from Tranent and Penicuik isn’t great with our run in for the league.

Easy to forget we were 10 points a drift without a prayer!

I'm not having that. As mentioned above we beat Spartans and the Shire in the cups also thumping Penicuik 5-0. The only team we didn't face on that run was really Tranent. 

We're on a bad run and that is disappointing, especially when a couple of wins would have us comfortably at the top of the league. Still games to go so we'll see what happens. 

To be in the position we are after the start to the season we had is astonishing. Playing for draws against the same teams your Lithgy supporting pal would have said we would be expected to beat.
