Bluebell have been nowhere near their best recently so a great opportunity for the Glens to bounce back from last weeks humiliation at lowly Newburgh and show for once they are capable of competing at this level. 
A nervy start from the visitors saw the Glens take an early lead and after a fairly even first half amid some sloppy defending from both sides saw the home side lead 2-1 at half time courtesy of a fluke cross that nestled into the back of net. 
Into the second half and the Glens management team decided to change things around adding what they later described as “experience”. From here on in it was men against boys with the Bell running out easy 4-2 winners.

Only positive I could see from a Glens point of view was the  healthy crowd who chose to turn up and spend their couple of quid instead of going to the coop for a bridey and a juice. However that might all change soon….. Michael Beale thinks 50,000 booing and telling him to fook off because he’s clueless and his substitutions never make sense after being knocked out of one competition, then losing a league game at home to his fiercest rivals who aren’t at their best is bad, spare a thought for the Glens boss who couldn’t sleep on Saturday night and took to social media at half 2 on Sunday morning to tell one fan not to come back for his apparent negativity.

Further proof if any is needed he’s out of his depth. Rather than just insults, calling anyone who has a different opinion negative or even toxic for being unhappy at the state of the team, let's hear why we should be positive instead.

Luncarty 4 we can con Pete 1

Before the season got underway I predicted, this squad weren’t good enough for this league and conceding six goals would be a regular occurrence. In my opinion the current managerial team were also out of their depth and in order for the Glens to progress they should do the honourable and resign. It appears for now that I underestimated the “back 3” 😂 as for the third game in a row they have only conceded 4 goals. However my opinion of the deluded two who repeatedly claim “we can compete at this level” hasn’t changed. Week after week all we hear is excuse after excuse.  Players out injured, the referee,and my favourite “we just need that little bit of luck”

They talked of having several players out injured and as luck would have it never had a fixture for three weeks. What more luck do they need?

Can’t wait for this weeks excuse after losing heavily to bottom club Luncarty because the natives are getting restless.

Well, hapless Kev didn’t disappoint with his deflection and denial comments after the 4-1 gubbing by bottom club Luncarty. So I knew the moment Ross Kavanagh bagged his third goal in the first quarter of the match, what the other half of this comedy duo would have to say in his turn to do the match report. Moaning about conceding soft goals, anything to deflect attention from himself. Presenting himself as someone more hard done by than simply outclassed by another vastly better, and smarter manager. Nothing in his comments surprised me in the least.The playbook at Glens is so predictable. 

 Huge congratulations to him on winning the “we never lost the second half” cup. 

The 7-2 mauling from mid table Sauchie has cast a dark shadow over Warout and this hopeless pair know it. They are in dire trouble. Swept aside on Saturday as if they weren’t there. Only six points from eleven games is embarrassing. No amateur club would accept this and they badly need put out of their misery but as I’ve highlighted before they don’t have the balls to and it’s now the people who continue to hire them who are the laughing stock.

Haws 3 Glens 0

HOB too hot to handle

It was pointed out to me midweek that the Glens now faced a run of 5 home games in their next 6 fixtures in the lead up to Christmas. Perhaps that wee bit of luck they’ve been crying out for. So where better to start than against fellow strugglers Hill of Beath Hawthorn. The deluded two had an induction to the managerial prowess of Moods and Clarky earlier in the season  when they were knocked out of the Alex Jack cup by second division Newburgh so they will have been happy not to have lost the first half which finished goalless. Be interesting to hear what “me and John” had to say at half time this week. Much easier to not lose the second half when a team is 6-1 up and takes their foot off the gas. Whatever they decided to change up a bit this week was again to no avail as an electric Haws side ran out easy 3-0 winners. Compete at this level? Losing recently by 3 goals to bottom club Luncarty and now by another 3 to relegation rivals at home tells you everything you need to know about the managerial situation at Glenrothes. 
So much for the eye of the tiger.

Glens 2 Sauchie 3

Having won the reverse fixture 7-2 messers Smith, Kavanagh and Hutchison will have been licking their lips at facing the joint managers unlucky 11 once again. Especially as the visitors  had lost all 3 of their fixtures played since that day at the end of October. 
With their opponents plagued with injuries this was yet another opportunity for the deluded 2 to achieve their goal of competing at this level. Unrealistic and unattainable but at least it’s a goal.

Sauchie who were 3 up after 22mins the last time they met started well, the high press paying dividends as they raced into a 3 goal lead once again with a Brace from Smith, who then combined with Kavanagh, and last seasons premier league top scorer added the third. We’re we about to see a repeat of that 7 goal mauling?

The referee soon put paid to that, showing an unwarranted  red card to Hutchison who’d scored a brace in the first half last time. A Glens player lying on the ground appeared to take a swipe at the Sauchie number 3 and as he tried to avoid falling over there was a tangle of legs and nothing more. A very poor decision but another stroke of luck hapless Kev has been crying out for. Before the first half drew to a close there was another honest mistake from the man in black, awarding a penalty for a blatant dive by Blair Smart that Kyogo Furuhashi would have been proud of.

Into the second half and we don’t know whether “me and John” asked them to “go out and enjoy themselves” or “try not to lose the second half” (due to them never doing managers reports when they lose) but they had the bulk of possession. Only last ditch defending and it’s got to be said very very poor finishing kept the score at 3-1 before a late strike hit the back of the net as the game drew to a close. 
Conclusion: even with all the luck in the world this pair still  don’t have it in them to find a way of competing at this level.

Glens 2 Luncarty 2

First visit to Warout this calendar year, an opportunity  to reassess my own opinion of the current management pairings ability to take the club forward as they were up against the Bleachers who themselves are in a relegation battle.  After back to back hammerings from bottom half clubs Penicuik (5-1) and Haddington (7-0) one half of the deluded duo was in the press this week with the usual excuses that

A. they’d players missing due to injury, 

B. the ref was poor 

and C. get this, it was windy

Granted they were missing 2 or 3 regulars against Haddington at the weekend (a sign of things to come next season without Cargy ) but the previous game against the Cookie who are only one placing above in the league table they were almost at full strength. Obviously being reduced to 10 boys in the Haddington game was a big factor in that match but the co managers assessment that Smarty “  kind of got caught underneath the ball, it bounced awkwardly and he kind of pushed his arm out” kind of tells me exactly what happened and the red card was kind of warranted. As for the “blowing a gale” excuse, I’ll treat that one with the contempt it deserves. 

Back to last nights match and Martins claim that  “It's the biggest game of the season so far…..In my eyes it’s a must win game. We’ve got six games left and I’m looking to take nine points as I think that will keep us in the league." 
I disagree it was a must win game having scoured over the remaining fixtures but was certainly one they couldn’t afford to lose. He’ll now be looking to take six points from the fixtures against Crossgates and Inverkeithing For me that point earned last night with a late equaliser after a poor showing from both sides will kind of be enough to see them remain in this league. The big question is, are the chairman and his commitee happy for more of the same next season or do they harbour any ambition to take Glenrothes forward because like I said at the start of this season neither of the “we can con Pete” in this league, duo have the tactical noose.
