The strange world of junior and international football
In fact, the game was the only disappointment of an absolutely brilliant day and night that took us from Dumfries to Glasgow to Beith and then back to Glasgow.
Whereas the game didn't exactly live up to expectations, the home crowd kept us amused and the Smugglers' Tavern certainly did.
We arrived in Beith before midday and headed to the ground.
We heard a Cumnock player get verbally abused by one fan for 40 minutes of the second half of the match; he was only spared the other five minutes because he was sent off.
We saw a boy get knocked out after he was punched by what looked like a fellow fan and we also heard some brilliant football chants made even better by the females in the crowd.
So what I want to know is, is this what junior football is like every week?
I'm sure I speak for my three mates who were in attendance with me when I say that we could happily put up with a poor match on the park if we were going to be entertained by the Beith fans every week.
I was hoping and expecting to sit and enjoy watching a Scotland match for the first time in a long time against Liechtenstein last night.
You know what I mean, an early goal to calm the nerves instead of huffing and puffing and scraping a victory late on in the game.
We all know what happened and maybe this is how it's always going to be for us.
I was disappointed in a sense with the match and certainly the result in Lithuania.
I thought the team looked fairly solid throughout the match. But, as happens too often, we were poor on the creative side.
I was sat there thinking that we should just have gone for it and had a right go.
Fast forward to Tuesday night and, although we might all not have got the personnel we wanted, the formation and set up was just about right.
We sneaked the result deep into stoppage time, but the performance was as poor as I've witnessed.
Craig Levein took a lot of stick after the draw in Lithuania and, because of this, I think he forced himself into including Kris Boyd alongside Kenny Miller and bringing in James McFadden.
It didn't work, but let's not forget we did manage to get a very crucial victory as it turned out after Lithuania's win in the Czech Republic.
I had a small disagreement with my pal Moff on Facebook last night as the big man was annoyed at the reaction of the players and manager at the end of the match.
He felt there was too much celebration going on after such a lacklustre performance.
He was probably right to a certain extent, but I think that came more with relief than anything else.
We've all celebrated a win we scarcely deserved, but I would like to think that there was no way it was all cuddles and dancing when the manager got the players away from the cameras and into the dressing-room.
There can be no kidding ourselves on that we were very close to one of the worst results and performances in our history last night.
What I will say, though, is that I would happily sit through another six performances like that if it meant we were finally able to watch our country at a major tournament again at Euro 2012.
