Good to hear that the focus isn't mainly on BH; I felt that (based on the sprinkling of games I saw) that the lazy option was the Blair option was seen too regularly to the detriment of the team, or rather making it a bit more predictable for the defending team.

Aye, I should do that sometime, though the diary is very full for December so limiting my football days probably just to the derby.  Just bought tickets for the Airdrie game today so may have the chance to go to City's fourth round tie.  That's pessimism for you! Sob

BH has mainly been injured and only just back into the team. Certainly a deeper team to compensate for the loss of his 30+ goals last season. More goals from midfield has been the key, which was often missing last season. As much as I like Sheps, he's not a finisher.

Plenty away days left in the season. You'll be more than welcome for any trips we do on the bus (or otherwise). Sound

We've done Blair. We've done Liam - mainly because he's been getting a ripping in the new, weekly, player interviews.

Next will be 'Sexy' Rab Mac. Fist

Loves his nickname. Loves the chat. Think I may actually love him. Warnock

Probably Henderson for me, though he really should have scored that 1st half header.
Smith full of running, and Thomson put in a few great balls, notably the one onto Henderson's noggin.
Brown and Laird busy in the middle.
But Harris? Both son & I simultaneously asked 'Which one is 33?' and both then went 'Oh', followed by silence. Monty Chuckle

Connor Smith didn;t really offer much tbh but he does look a right chav, and has very hairy legs.
Though Hamilton was pretty neat and tidy at the back, albeit like most of the 'Beith team was prone to hoofing it a bit too often but saying that with the surface and the conditions you can't really blame anybody for doing so.

Harris was fucking rank yesterday. When he got announced as sponsors MoM, there was a collective Wiggo amongst us.

We gave the supporters club MoM to Marc Laird. Smithy was a close second. He did very well yesterday considering how he was booted up and down the park. Felt we played pretty well considering Cowdenbeath tried to suck the life out of the game. They offered absolutely nothing going forward.

I thought Hamilton was ok but most of their defensive work came from Mango Barr. Once again, Smith was absolutely anonymous.

Decent enough crowd yesterday too. Good to the legend that is Joe Mbu back for a watch.

Going to go to the game on Saturday. Used to live opposite Ainslie Park, so it'll be a wee trip down memory lane.
