SFL Div 1, Falkirk Stadium, 29/12/12.
Well, I wasn’t at the game but this is noteworthy. It’s only our second league win all season. It seems to have been much the same line-up as usual as well.
I couldn’t see us getting anything from this. After all, they had just come off beating (away) the team second from top and we had played only one game in the five weeks since losing comprehensively to that same team.
I heard the half-time score on the radio and wondered if we’d scored first but we had actually equalised in first-half stoppage time (unlike us, I know.)
When I next checked (on Sportscene) were 3-1 up and then suddenly 4-1. Still time for Falkirk to score three I thought. Then James Creaney’s sending-off came up and I watched the inevitable unfold. At 3-4 I couldn’t keep the channel on and switched to Flog It! for relief. I came back five minutes later and it was still 3-4 with the game unfinished. I hastily switched over again.
But all was well in the end.
We’ll need to curb our habit of losing three a game, though.
Perhaps I should stay away from games more often.
