    Unfortunately, this is all our committee is bothered about. Certain ones on it seem to trust TJ implicitly. Huge error. No point treading old ground now though. I have to say that at this particular time, all those Tayside visits awaiting us hold no appeal for next season. Hope I feel differently when the new season comes around but we're not going to be in a strong position in the transfer market, are we?

    Congratulations to Scott Pittman today on helping to get Livi back to the top. No doubt Devon will be chuffed that his brother scored today too.

    Okay then, heard from whom?
  4. Junior football, what is the future?

    Attention all those who trusted in TJ & co. I will not mock you, you believed their lies but now is the time to get the fcuk away from these snakes, or you will be dead within a decade.

    Accidentally red-dotted you there but gave you a green to counter. You are spot on about the blazers holding on to power but I think you are wrong regarding an entire integration. TJ & co have missed the boat on East clubs, now too fractured to move together. He and his cronies have always been more concerned with the west anyway, so there he still sees a chance to do some dealing that keeps him in a position of power. All I would ever say to other fans is 'would you buy a used car from him?'

    I agree with you but certain members of our committee are entrenched in their views and think going to Forfar & Carnoustie are better bets.

    You might just have changed some minds on the committee! One was using Burntisland as an example of why not to join the EOS. However, if alcohol is involved, I'm sure minds could be changed.........

    I've been a supporter of the pyramid for a long time now but once my club had let 31/03 pass and made it clear they weren't for moving because TJ would save the day, my heart fell. Now it would appear some sense has prevailed. They may, perhaps, have finally seen through the charlatan's cloak and found nothing there but a desperate, clinging desire for self-preservation. I hope that Bo'ness fans come out and discuss issues, for and against but I, of course, hope they see that change is needed. If we are really lucky, an application would be accepted, although we scarcely deserve to be on an even footing with those who have already committed themselves.

    The archetypal end of season game, with only one team bothered about winning. The Marc Kelly goal was a wonderful one to say 'goodbye to grass' to. Gemmell ran the show, from beginning to end. I must admit I inwardly groaned when we went 3-0 up, fearing a repeat of last years debacle but even though we tried to help Lochee by taking off Hunter & Snowdon, they didn't take advantage.
  11. An answer to 'where did it all go wrong?' is right there. in any organisation, when an ego takes over, you are on the slippery slope. It can and has taken years for some to challenge the egos of those in office. The playground bully analogy is a good one. You could say Kelty gave the bully a kicking, now others are less afraid to do so. Others, including my club sadly, are happy to 'keep in' with the bully, believing the promises made.

    Your words certainly proved correct. Although the boss may have become complacent in his choice of subs. A most enjoyable game with chances going a begging at both ends. Still think the ref got the last-minute penalty appeal wrong though.

    Very good point. Our lads have in the space of 5 days, played the top two teams in the league and played in a cup-tie. The fact that they came back so well last night earns them respect. Convinced the Kelly 'dive' was a penalty and oh how the wee rose fans would have loved it to have been given! Bonnyrigg are a big, strong unit and you'll never match them with muscles. Only when we played with a bit of craft and kept the ball on the ground did we look like troubling them. Hard to pick a MOM as on first half performance, Jen in the pie hut was our best but on the 2nd half showing, Callum Scott stood out.

    Really? With it being a 'Senior' league, that comes as a surprise.

    How many junior clubs will be caught out this year if they sign a player from one of those moving to the EoS?
