Aye was just called "the Pink"

Always fascinated me how in mid 1980s Glenrothes, I'd get back from a game maybe at Muirton or East End Park....so maybe 5.45pm, 6 at the latest.....and I'd drop into the chipper for my post-match fish supper and they'd have it on sale already. The match reports tended to be incomplete, maybe finishing about the 75 minute mark but the full-time results were always there. Fucking good going to get it printed and distributed from Edinburgh as far as that in the time frame. In those days there was no A92 dual carriageway from Dunfermline all the way to Glenrothes...they'd have to go through Crossgates, Cowdenbeath, Lochgelly etc. 

Yup, impressive logistics. I must have been pretty young when it ceased to be, but I did enjoy reading scored (and reports?) from wee teams and leagues of barely heard of.

Decent point.

The situation was that it wasn’t a sitter though. The loon still had some work to do and chose the wrong option then was inaccurate in his shot as in he didn’t curl it enough.

 

Decent game though, let’s not lambast his for missing it and hope he gets another opportunity in the coming games to score and put it behind him.

Don’t think it’s fair to say he chose the wrong option , as the one he took should still have resulted in him scoring , and minimised the risk of the chance being lost by , for instance , a heavy second touch or one of the defenders getting back to impede him.

^^^ this.

also don’t forget if Wright had a signature flick Rodgers would know about it.  Actually think Wright second guessed himself.  I’ll give him credit for beating the keeper.  We move on.

Never min.

with his pace and the space behind him from an advancing keeper he should have rounded Rodgers.

The defenders were never getting back to impede Wright.

You say he might have had a heavy touch, well his shot was heavy, resulting in the miss

Rogers coming out narrowed the angle, he did well in that respect (Rogers), meaning he was increasingly blocking the goal. Wright could have increased his chances by opening up the goal again by going down the side of Rodgers

I think that rounding the keeper on his right, and therefore Scott going to the left, was definitely an option and I look forward to adding my opinion to an interesting debate where I think the majority of us all saw the same thing.

What I am anxious to do first however is to clarify what the boy was saying by it being a sitter, a comment he immediately jumped in with and one that we have yet to get clarification on.

He took the right option, just didn't quite execute. Very similar to the goal he scored against Livi, no one was complaining about the wrong option then. He shoulda scored but hey ho it never cost us this time and it's pleasing to see an attacking midfielder actually get into a position like that and threaten which wouldn't have happened last season.

It must be my turn to misinterpret you this time.

Heaps of us have spent two pages having a chat. You come in and tell us you know best and yet you contributed fuck all.

What is your problem? Is it ok by you that we discuss stuff about the game in the match thread? Do we need your permission?

If I come across a thread of a subject I don't care about, I wouldn't slag others who do.

Quite similar but with distinct differences.

The Livingston’s keeper McRorie had not advanced as far and as quickly off his line like Rogers had.

The livi goal was more central and was being closed down closer by the defenders.

It would not have been the correct decision in the Livi game to try and go round the keeper

Silly

I mean if slagging others opinions bothers you...

it wasnt a go at you FFS.

I know you weren't having a go at me. By asking the question however, we have found another misunderstanding.

I did not slag others opinions. Nobody was slagging mine. You have misinterpreted the words that were written. It would be harsh to jump to any conclusion why that might be the case in this particular instance but by asking questions, it's how we learn. So I'll ask you one;

Why did you agree with SR when you wrote ^^^ this? What did you mean by that? Why should we not be able to discuss it? Were you anxious to "protect" someone?

I don't know what you meant, which is why I'm asking. I know what SR meant, but it's one of two options WHY he posted it. The timing of your immediate support was interesting.

Hoping the above is genuine, and on that basis...

"^^^ this" was to indicate that I agreed with the poster above's view (cant even remember who it was if that helps your suspicion re protecting someone).  He wrote (having checked back) that Wright should have scored, he didnt, we shouldnt lose sleep over it and we should move on, all of which I whole heartedly agreed with, hence "^^^this"

And to clarify re "he should have scored" my interpretation is that I would like to think that given the opportunity a number of times, that he would score in the majority of those times.  I don't expect him to score every time else he wouldn't be with us.  I dont expect him to not score the majority of the chances presented either in so far as if that was the case over an extended period that I do feel we could do better.

Hope that helps.

Oh, and yes "^^^this" is dangerous given posting times and rate, but I keep making a cunt of the quote function and for the life of me I still cant do multi quotes.

Whether it was a sitter or not, all a fine change from those games in January wondering if we'd ever create a chance again.

You will forgive us for thinking that you were supporting his view in his first two lines also, particularly when nobody on the whole thread (other than RUL, stude having backed down/removed himself from the equation) was stupid enough to argue with the obvious, his third line. His was an attempt to shut down debate and you also completely missed his "you cunts ever kicked a ball?", which you might have seen as inflammatory, as well as a disgusting self-aggrandisement.

You "checked back" and you "can't even remember who"? You also parroted his "move on". No worries. Thanks for clarifying.

Totally no problem if you have but when you were so quick to jump in, it wasn't a question of whether or not it was even a sitter for you, it was a "total" sitter.

What made you change your mind?

So the first line identifies that he is referring to the lengthy "should Wright have scored the sitter" debate.  Nothing more, certainly no view to support there. 

His second line simply identifies that he is writing it from the perspective of someone who feels he knows football.  Given that some (dont care who) proclaim that Wright should have scored, period, and seem to think that if/when he didn't he should be taken round the back and shot allows me to identify with being closer to the original writer's view.  And can I just clarify here that I am someone who was monumentally shite at football and who would have then and now given an arm to be "a cunt who's kicked a ba."  But 40 years at Pittodrie tells me that if Wright netted every time in that position then Wright wouldn't be at Pittodrie.  Period.  Thats the perspective I took it from.

And I stand by, and in particular agree with his last line.  Apologies if I should have made that clearer to improve your understanding.  He should have scored (important game settler, one of very few chances to do so off a fantastic through ball) but he didn't, we move on.

I checked back what the writer said to be as informed as possible in my response to you.  I apologise for not confirming that in particular it was the third element that I agreed with.  I couldn't give a monkeys arse who wrote it other than a cursory check that it was not someone who I thought was deliberately steering, splitting, diverting or extending a pointless debate.  Something that regrettably is all too common on this forum at the moment.

Did you get banned from here or did you flounce off in a hissy fit? I’m thinking the latter, given your “performance” over the last few pages.
