  1. Deluded or incompetent

    Omg. Deluded! He did nothing to try and convince east teams to stay and reading this article it seems he was only concerned about west teams anyway. It reads like he was happy there are east, west, north divides instead of being one joined up association! This is where all the problems stemmed from. He'll learn all right because now he has to try and get his beloved west region in at this 6 or be below those scoundrels from east of falkirk being ahead of them because they wouldn't put up with procrastination and pie in the sky solutions. I never wanted to leave the juniors but I do want to see my club survive and this was unfortunately the ONLY option.
  2. ??? Not sure I mentioned Talbot in my response pointing out that we, just like all the other east teams are still "junior" until such time as the applications to EOS are accepted and they resign from this grade of the game. Please don't live in the past, last year's game was last year which I got over quite quickly actually - time and football move on.
  3. Unless of course we are all still "Juniors" as the EOS meeting to approve applications is not until Thursday and therefore no one has left just yet.... Don't worry, you will get the "Juniors" all to yourselves soon enough which will suit both some in the west and the association as it appears that little was ever done over the years to find a solution to suit ALL member clubs not only those west of falkirk.

    Sorry should have added that I would like to know actual attendance figures from this year with a forecast projection of the same for next season based on both scenarios - I'm sure someone from Kelty could help with the EOS one to base on actuals if asked.

    I would like to ask that ahead of the meeting on 4th June, the committee please come prepared with ALL the information required to make an informed decision ie ALL pros and cons of staying junior along with a projection of where this will leave us financially, in football terms and also projection of development and advancement ALONG WITH the pros and cons of moving to EOS and the same projections in terms of finance, football and development/advancement. I for one was against moving but the more I hear the more I have altered that position and I NEED to have all the facts, not just personal preference or scare mongering and agenda suiting "stories" to be able to make up my mind. Any stories of hidden agendas need to be set aside and all attendees MUST come with open minds with only the best interests of Linlithgow rose in their mind. Whatever opinion you have just now our committee need to bring all information to the table to allow a reasoned debate rather than tit for tat insults and resignation threats. I fully accept the brilliants job our committee has done over the last countless decades but the world has moved on and we need to be in a position to keep this great club great whether as junior or not. Happy to help with this and running of the meeting (it's what I do for a job) if someone just wants to get in touch. HTG!

    And just for the record, I was actually going to invite you guys in for a drink but thot you were in the committee. Those comments aren't needed and I spoke to the chap after to say as much but the young lad is concerned you got back to the retirement home ok ? [emoji23]

    Haa haa nice try. Ask sheep if that's how I feel as I walked out with the big man. Sheep, just heard that the stewards thot we were going to box when we met because we were exchanging banter but were totally confused when we shook hands and walked out together chatting away lol [emoji15] [emoji23] [emoji23] [emoji23] [emoji23] [emoji23] [emoji23] Hope you enjoy your night.

    The referee was atrocious if any bo'ness player other than Murphy wasn't booked can you please confirm. Poor team who kicked everything in maroon but it worked so we have to suck it up and move on. Rose dominated but couldn't break thru the 8 man defence but we need to learn from that. Onwards and upwards. HTG

    Enjoyed the game today, thot we did very well moving the ball and you can see and hear what the coaches are trying to install and encourage. Some good goals and some bizarre penalty decisions but taken with aplomb.
