The Fifers' v The Blue Toon 20/1

Recommended Posts

East Fife welcome Peterhead to Bayview tomorrow. The pitch  will be fine with any frost long gone with the wind  having more of an  impact on the game than recent weeks.

East Fife are unbeaten in 2024, a 3 game run but will hoping to put on a more entertaining  display for the fans than last Saturdays 1-1 draw with Clyde.

The line-up unkown, with so many  injured & ill defenders its been surprise  not to see the manager add to the  squad this week. 

I was impressed with Peterhead when they defeated us  on  the  first  day  of the season and will prove  difficult opponents  despite their recent poor  run.

With  Clyde, Elgin and Bonnyrigg not in  league action plus Stranraer  at  champions elect Stenny, 3 points could propel East Fife into 5th place whereas a defeat  would have us  nervously looking over our  shoulders.

Mugged by the referee & linesman.

He blew full time immediately when we kicked off after the equaliser but I'm convinced he would've played another few minutes had Peterhead not scored.

Linesman also flagged Austin offside when clean through, after he ran past the defender.

Sore one to take but full credit to the team who put in a great shift.

Robbed by the route one cloggers

Sorry I missed the game if we reverted to route one.  Too much pissing about playing it across the back and then back to the keeper this year for me.  A little variation is a good thing.

Some play acting from Peterhead I’ve never heard so many grown men squealing whenever anyone went near them. As soon as they felt a touch on them they went down in a crumpled heap squealing like a 2 year old child.. If course the incompetent referee fell for it every time. Not much in the way of football from Peterhead route one hoof ball to McAllister when he came on. Where do they get these referees from So inconsistent with his card decisions.

I think we were unlucky today, but fitba is littered with hard luck stories.

We switched off at the back when the referee was ready to blow for full time. Lessons to hopefully be learned. For the most part, we were good this afternoon though. Millar, Trouten, McManus, Page, Newton and Austin very good.
