  1. Dalkeith, next Junior giant to take the plunge.

    Parallel? No. An unlikely scenario, I grant you but at present, a team in the EoSL could get into the SPFL, then climb the ladder and ultimately qualify for European competition. Now, remind me what the ceiling is for junior teams?
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    We have spent all season debating the Kelty move, without any general agreement being reached. A club leaving that has received funding and investment has not been seen as a threat to the 'junior' structure. Now we have Dalkeith. A minnow in junior terms, with all due respect. Their move will shake up quite a few committee meetings and it's now a case of who gets away from the blocks next. TheLad says he sees the juniors as a 'wasteland' in 10 years. My only argument with that is the timescale. Half it and you'd be more accurate. Change is already happening. To all fans, do you want your club to be left behind?

    Think Calum is in Canada just now.

    From the tone of your post, you either live on Jamieson Avenue or have a kid going to the primary. Sounds very much like a NIMBY response.

    I agree with you about the surface. Selfishly, I too would prefer real grass but times move on. Already, refs crack down on hard tackling. The game is certainly different to when I started watching, at all levels. The part regarding injuries, well......could Bo'ness have suffered any more injuries the last few seasons? It will likely drive down the average age of teams, so we may see less and less washed-up ex-seniors in our side. No argument about the Rec, it is certainly under-utilised and I live just over the road. That says more about the poor management than anything else. With proper management and ideas in place, there is certainly room in a growing Bo'ness for two community facilities

    Not privy to the inner workings of the committee but I believe that it is going to be another year before it occurs. This weeks news regarding the funding for the ground being received by the Newtown Park Association may just advance things. I do hope a move is made sooner rather than later.
  7. One small amendment in spelling. It should be Wodecki. He went on to play for Alloa Athletic

    Dalkeith moving could be the spark that ignites a fire. Everybody expected if anyone was to move, it would be one of the SuperLeague sides. Nobody considered that a side outwith the top division would make the jump. Good luck to them and I hope it heralds more movement in the East, at any rate.

    I wonder if Dalkeith's decision to apply for the EOSL will have any effect at our club. Change is coming folks, like it or not.

    Try to go back before you decided to wade in, in defence of the trolls. An official post was made stating funding had been received. Almost before any fan of the BU's could post, the usual suspects appeared, making snide remarks about the grant and in their usual high and mighty manner proceeded to contribute destructive criticism over how this money was obtained and its use. The point I was making, was that in a civilised society we are all contributing to help others and can do without the pretentious comments from certain individuals who seem to think it is wrong to have received funding.

    No high ground is being sought. I just tire of the constant sniping of Waldorf & Statler. I posted that the taxpayers of Bo'ness are HELPING to pay for this. I made no claim of exclusivity. No doubt, we have also helped to improve facilities all over the country, maybe even in Linlithgow too.
  12. Bo'ness United 2017/18

    You still refuse to accept that the taxpayers of Bo'ness are helping to pay for this. Would you still have a problem if this grant was aiding anyone but Bo'ness United?

    You seem to like adages. How about this one, 'two wrongs don't make a right'.

    I very rarely view the wee rose thread let alone post on it. Therefore I cannot say if our fans inhabit your teams thread. I can only speak about the main trolls who visit our thread on a daily basis for nothing more than pot shots at anything to do with Bo'ness. Abandoned the glass house, much more effective using Perspex.
