Sunderland 3-0 Rotherham United. Win was even more comfortable than score line suggests. Simms and Stewart both excellent and forming a really good partnership on tonight’s evidence. 

Train down was cancelled so another refund on its way. Managed to get on to earlier Cross Country train so got down earlier than original train.

Heart of Midlothian 0 Killie 1. League Cup, Second Round.

I don't get to these shiny big grounds very often, so I enjoyed my trip to Tynecastle where their cute wee disco lights got an outing before the game.

Killie were well worth the win. Taylor putting in an incredible performance at the back, and Killie looking so much better than last time I saw them at Montrose. c352db18668b630870c3266e73617e15.jpg6b536de62d5820d2966ebd31c8997ba7.jpg718ceebd3347108444224ff1a7c4d597.jpg

Coldstream 2 Dunbar United 2

Who'd have thought 20 years ago I'd have seen THE DEVIL'S ILLUMINATION arrive at Home Park? Coldstream defended well, especially in the second half when Dunbar had most of the play. The match was held up in the first half when the Dunbar keeper rushed out of his box and clattered a Coldstream player. The keeper was lucky to get only a caution and the unfortunate Coldy player suffered a broken arm. Fortunately, the ambulance came quite quickly- he might have had a wait in Edinburgh. Not a bad turnout and an entertaining game for the neutral.

Benburb 0 - 1 Blantyre Vics

Friday Football Fest in Fo... Govan. I say fest but the first half here made West Germany v Austria in 1982 look like peak Brazil 1970 or Barcelona 2011. A red card for Benburb after about half an hour gave the game a kick up the arse and came to life for a bit and Blantyre scored a deserved goal just after half time.

A few rumours flying about from the probable "to increase the attendance" (which to be fair it did) to the conspiratorial "to let the players watch the Old Firm game". Given the often turgid football on display and disappointing New Tinto Park I wonder how many of the enlarged crowd will be back? We're going back to the East for a while in the huff.2f8e57a4155548c2e58ec5029f08289e.jpg7c0fe9f21c8029430d0549a98f2d8018.jpg5d53074065fe0a740edd34d1f990bc39.jpgdd69d5c4f634cb7aa6f0a0ae4d70dbe3.jpg

Camelon 2-3 Preston Athletic

Mair like it! Should have listened to myself earlier. The East is a far better league for entertainment.

Like a basketball game at times. Camelon open the scoring after the Preston player is nutmegged by a through ball. Some lovely football on show. Preston got 3-2 ahead just after half time and managed to kill the game.

Lothian Thistle Hutchinson Vale 1-5 Blackburn United. Not the random game I intended going to but due to public transport in Edinburgh grinding to a halt ended up heading to Anislie Park for this one. Blackburn 2nd was a great free kick and they were miles ahead of LTHV today.

ETA - There has been a bit of progress with the new stand at Ainslie Park with roof frame now in place.

11/42: Livingston 1-0 Hearts, 3/9/2022 - Premiership.

My first time at Livingston for 17 years. I just don't enjoy going there, so usually use it as an excuse to go and see another game. But this season I needed to go, so along I went yesterday.

Thought Hearts started pretty well and controlled the game until going behind. After that Livi managed the game well and easily deserved to win. Desperately poor from Hearts once they went behind.

I didn't enjoy it enough to reverse my policy of avoiding this venue, but top marks to the curry pies. Also weird to see Candy Floss on sale. Is this normal and I've just not been paying attention?

BSC Glasgow Women 1-3 St Mirren Women. 

St Mirren in control at 2-0 up, but BSC scored with 15 minutes to go and made it a frantic ending. St Mirren scoring a late third while BSC were pushing for an equaliser. Decent standard in the fourth tier of the Women's game.

Crowd around 25 including Navid from Still Game.

I think that's Isa in goals.

Arbroath Victoria 2-2 Tayport

A late change of plan led to a visit to Ogilvy Park. The idiomatic game of two halves - Vics were the better team in the 1st half and led 2-0 at the break. Tayport were much improved in the 2nd half and the pressure eventually earned them the draw. Vics may feel it was 2 points dropped as there was more than a hint of offside to the late equaliser.

I think we're trying to do a lot more to engage with younger supporters now, they were selling those stupid kazoo things too :D I think last season we gave 2-3k tickets away to school kids about 3 or 4 times so there's finally a dedicated effort again set out to building up our fanbase. Nice to see the club at least doing something about it, we need to make the most of it while we're in the top flight and try get fans to get behind the team. 

I think we're at something like 1,200-1,400 season ticket holders up from 700 5 years ago. Next milestone to aim for is 2,000 hopefully.
