A dull 1-1 draw. They'll equalize in the 80 oddth minute and miss 2 sitters.
What a hero, What a man...... Ooooh, what a bad foul...

The fact that a thread about the next match only appears the Wednesday before says a lot about the enthusiasm (or lack of it) being felt.
Can only see two scenarios:
1. We win and the boos are silenced but nobody is convinced it's the dawn of a new era
2. We draw or lose and the atmosphere will be horrible

Really don't want to be there but suppose I will be. 2-1 to them :(

Or the low interest may be down to the lack of a t*attish Shakespearean thread title?

Wednesday are playing well. Can't see us getting anything more than a point.

2-2

Have always quite liked Stuart Gray - I even remember him playing a few games for us. I see that they've had a very decent start to the season (W 2, D 2, L 1) and put Burnley out of the LC at TM to boot.

2 - 0 to them and all hell to break loose.

They'll probably get a point in a score draw - feels like that has been the status quo forever

This is the first live game of 14/15 for BWFCEast KIlbride

Forget #indyref this is #dougieref

We're sat right behind the dugouts. You'll spot us in our CU Jimmy Wigs, our kilts, oor Wullie and the shortbread biscuits that'll rain down on DF should we not at least play well.

Freeeeeeeeedddddmaaaaaaaaaaaaan!

Presumably the thread title comes from the little known sequel 'A Late-Summer Afternoon's Nightmare'.

Will be rubbish. 0-1 defeat where they look no better than us but we give them a cheap goal.

Doubt if any Shakespeare titles will match the magnificent: "That most Excellent Canopy-The Air, Look You".Boro at home. :D

On the basis that, if they win by more than 2, it could prove fatal to Mr Freedman's tenancy? *halo*

We will lose this one comprehensively.

They are a much better side than us at the moment.

The very reason that we may upset their applecart. Scrappy 1-0 hit on the break after mumbling and fumbling, hacking and clogging the ball out of our box for eighty minutes, will do.

I think its fairly easy to predict that we'll be shit.

Its less clear whether that will lead to any sort of result. Dougie seems to have an unerring ability to pull us to merely hugely disappointed from absolutely disastrous as regular as clockwork.

I don't think we'll win. I don't see us losing. We could easily do the latter. We should really be aiming to do the former. It'll just be enough ammo of "if only's and might've beens" to fend off imminent departure.

I'm bringing one of eldest's mates and his dad along for the ride. As long as we see some goals (with any luck in the 'for' column), anythign but a 'crucial' 0-0 bore draw which 'hopefully' will 'kick start our season'.

In fact there's part of me that wants us to go all out and try to lose very game from now on.

This season's over - the club's goosed and as long as El Drudge and the PG Chimp are in charge sooner or later we're going down again.

What a way to go eh? Only a single draw against NF in the points column.

A glorious fire ball of disaster rather than the half hearted limp to eventually long term misery.

COYWM then!

7-0 loss. See, at least this way I can be happy when we lose by two...
