  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    It's actually harder for bigger clubs to reach a decision, as they have EGM's to arrange and will want a high level of support. A smaller club could more easily decide on just half a dozen committee members voting for it. Having said that, certain clubs need to get their skates on!

    Confident, yes. complacent, no. Bo'ness never do it the easy way. The cup result may go a long way in affecting performance. Defeat would certainly allow the cup-tied players a chance of regular games but a win might boost the club and attendances for the rest of the season.

    The next 3 weeks really will shape our season. Obviously Saturday is the big one but the two league games after that, at home to Jeanfield & away to Forfar could banish any relegation worries....if we win.

    I believe it's in the process of being edited and will be available on you tube certainly, if not here.

    You go on about this "brand". If I was the marketing director of any company with a "brand", I would have expected to be sacked by now if I acted as the SJFA does with its "brand"

    You make it sound like a war. It's all FOOTBALL. History is important but you can't keep living in the past. Maybe if TJ at the top had "cared a jot" about the East region as he does about the West, things may have been different. Now progressive football clubs from all areas are looking to evolve.

    Puts a lot of effort in and has done okay without shining. Yesterday was a tough game for him, as he was clouted in the foul that resulted in a red card. Fear not. Playing against the likes of Hurlford will have him well prepared when he returns to you.

    "Junior brand"? What brand is that exactly? It certainly isn't a marketed brand. It's an old name, from a bygone age. If the changes that are beginning, continue to sweep through, then the name 'Junior' will be dead in 5 years.

    The day after and a good chance to look back objectively. 1. The wind ruined the game, no matter the form of either side. 2. Our passing was very poor. Continuously losing the ball, especially due to players waiting for the ball rather than going to it. 3. Despite playing poorly, the side don't give up easily. That second goal would have killed off lesser sides but we kept at it. If we wish to win next week we need to do something we've never done before. Win a Junior Cup replay in Ayrshire.

    Jacobs is back. Big family birthday this week.
  11. Best/worst grounds in junior football history.

    For me, the worst grounds are those in the SuperLeague without any cover. So on that basis top of the list (or Bottom) is Carnoustie, as they have had a few years to get something sorted. Also Broughty & Forfar, graded on their length of time at the top. Kennoway had a wee canopy and it was early in season when we visited.

    Those criticising the red wont have heard the Hurlford keeper coming off at HT. After exchanging comments he called the ref a cheating c**t. How the ref did not red card him for that is a mystery.
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    I'm not so sure it can be said he has done his best FOR Junior football. He is in a position where there is no periodic election for his position. Even FIFA ran elections! He is protecting himself, pure and simple and instead of aiding change, he grips firmly on to what semblance of power he thinks he has, even if it is to the detriment of the game.

    Up the hill and the snow was just beginning to lie but has now stopped, albeit probably for a short time. A day for a full enclosure and a bit of noise.

    Yep, some fans are very fickle. Already you can see there's more to this team than the one AMCG was fielding, even those still playing.
