The ref was poor, but he didn't stop us from being poor. We never threatened. We had a few opportunities, but we were too slow to benefit.

Of course we threatened we hit the bar twice, Cox''s shot was only stopped by it striking the goalkeeper's chest and Taylor shot the rebound just past.  There were other opportunities created so no way did we never threaten.

The sooner he is ready to come back the better, if he doesn't leave. 

He definitely seems keen, which is half the battle.

Jordyn has a fantastic attitude and is very popular across peers, management, board as well as fans and has done a lot behind the scenes to support the club. In essence he is a top guy whom personally I like a lot.

Quite a tear stained post that Al. It's only a dead rubber game mate keep the chin up.

East Fife are a league above us with a far bigger budget I'm not surprised they looked better.

I think you should he focusing on your own gang than the opposition as much. Looking at your squad assembled you are in for a long season. You could even see the dejection of Swann in that video having to sign back on there again.

I dont think our season will be any longer than yours, both teams season will end on 2nd May.

Neither team will need to bother about play offs at either end of the table.

I thought we looked the better side until just before Stenny scored after that we seemed to lose the midfield but we could have still got something out of it before the 2nd goal,

We had a good first 20 minutes and caused Stenny lots of problems but then Stenny came back into the game and got the goal. The first half was pretty even but Stenny were the better team in the second 45 without being great - they were just better than us and did what they had to.

Valentine was poor and isn't good enough for this level at present. He still looked unfit and should have been replaced earlier. I wonder if Mullen had a knock and that's why he didn't start? Dabrowski had a few nervous moments today but he is still learning - he seems to like coming out for balls but he does drop a fair amount of them.

Thomas had a few nice touches and runs again.

The centre back was hilarious, every ball in the air, he shouted “win the fuckin header” he never said anything else for the whole 90 mins, even the stenny fans were laughing at him.

Munro had a decent game and won everything in the air. He isn't anything fancy but will head the ball all day and we played into his hands - on the few occasions that we got the ball down and run at him, we got past him easily (namely Allan for the shot that crashed off the bar and then Cox when Smith saved with his chest). He organises the defence well and yeah, he shouts a lot but he always communicating with the players around him.

Shame if Sheerin departs. He should have been playing today. He is basically a slower version of McGuigan.

No he shouldn't and no he's not.

I would agree about Munro easy meat for the boy giving him high balls into the box and also marshall's the defence well.

Wasn’t impressed with what I saw today, constantly playing high balls to cox and allan when Stenhousemuir have two physical centre backs that moped up everything. Valentine less said about him the better nothing positive from his performance. Stenhousemuir the better team and deserved to win no doubt about it but some of the decisions from the ref were questionable, keeper had his hands round cox’s throat but only a yellow? Allan kicked off the ball ref see’s it but still only a yellow? Onwards and upwards next week.

Mullen suspended first two league games so trying back 4 with JP at RB ahead of league campaign.

Pyper has played right back in three of the four Betfred Cup games (he started as a CB against Dundee United with Herd at RB) with Mullen playing left back.

You're in some state Lex. Writing your season off after a dead rubber cup game before a ball is kicked in the league.

Top fan.

I’m hoping to be pleasantly surprised. Makes for a much better season to have low expectations.

How can you possibly complain about the Smith/Cox bookings. No “hand around his throat”, which seems to be a common throwaway line when a player grabs someone by the collar, which is what happened here...Cox then threw Smith to the ground. Correctly a yellow for both numpties.

As an aside, there’s no chance Cox didn’t know the play had been stopped when he initially lunged in on Smith, guy seems to be a bit of a bampot.

You saying he isn’t leaving then?

Only asking as someone said at the game he’s agreed to leave as he can’t get fitter not playing and Bollan isn’t going to play him.

There are plenty ways to get fit and he really does need to shed some weight.

Al what I am saying again at the risk of repetition he is someone held in high regard throughout the club. He has assisted the club in a number of ways beyond his contributions on the pitch.

The comment you make which I have highlighted in here is not something I recognise. In general terms as a former player I am sure you would agree you train to get fit to play rather than play to get fit to play.
