Barely had to get out of first gear today. 

And never really had to, other than their goal not sure EF created much.

 

Dario was not at the races today, hopefully just a one off and will be back to form next week, much improved performance required when Arbroath come knocking.

We were right in line with it they could have put the whole squad in the wall and they still wouldn’t have got near it…cracking goal was in all the way.

As I said, there's no doubting the quality of the strike, but the way the wall was set up gave him a big target to aim at.

It took me back to a few seasons ago when opposition free kicks against the Rovers were pretty much as good as a penalty.

Darren took the opportunity to play fringe players and guys needing game time coming back from injury not sure why we didn’t play our strongest team. We did ok first half but never laced a glove on them second half. Not really fussed about Mickey Mouse cup , Cove game much more important next week resting Dunsmore, Smith, Connoll, Denholm and Semple. Still got Davidson, Murdoch and Swanson to come back in from injury still a good run out for the guys needing game time.

How low on options would you need to be to go and watch East Fife out of choice? There must surely be better options, even in the Methil area. They're utter dung.

Why is there always a undercurrent of attempted socio-economic superiority with your posts? 

Kirkcaldy and Methil have been battered in equal measures by the powers that exist.

I doubt anywhere can compare to the Levenmouth area. It's the one place anyone else can go and be guaranteed to feel grateful for what they've got. 

That's probably why they're giving it a rail link.

Standard win.  East Fife are absolute dung, sad to see how far they have fallen.

Onto the next round, I guess.  Poplatnik looked sharp when he came on, and Connolly was superb.

From the intensity of the Pars game to the low pace of the Killie game to this, it feels like we have managed to stop time.

That said, we still fucked East Fife.

fucked East Fife ? 😬

How the fucking fucks does the referee see that as not  penalty is beyond me

Let’s see, from Law 12, specifically the indirect portion dealing with non-contact…”impeding the progress of an opponent means moving into the opponent’s path to obstruct, block, slow down or force a change of direction when the ball is not within playing distance of either player.”  Now, that’s “non-contact”….how, it also reminds that “All players have a right to their position on the field of play; being in the way of an opponent is not the same as moving into the way of an opponent.” The previous section also makes clear that contact makes this a direct kick, thus a penalty…as long as the defender isn’t holding position.

So, we have a clear violation, because the East Fife defenseman (wink, wink) clearly steps over into Mitchell’s path and initiates contact…OK, so is the referee screened form a clear view, well, er, no. OK, I got nothing except the referee erroneously viewed the defender as holding position…which is absolute crap.
