    That's what junior football should be about..but we do ..like all clubs have our share of idiots who only seem to appear at away games in the junior cup...good luck in the future..by the way your goalkeeper was worth the entrance money last night.
  2. Fauldhouse United 2017/18

    Certainly gave Bonnyrigg a run for their money .
  3. Junior football, what is the future?

    Nice gesture by the club.....Well done.
  4. Junior football, what is the future?

    Got to be..there is some sort of wedding in London..Early kick offs to watch it?
  5. Junior football, what is the future?

    Applied when it suites then like tickets at cup ties?
  6. Junior football, what is the future?

    McIntosh and Lough. McGachie is good in some games but last night wasn't set up for a physical battle. Definitely an area that needs strengthening Not a McIntosh fan wastes too many chances and wants to do it all himself..my opinion....Lough needs more game time but would be a first choice....Kieran ,well he doesn't give a consistent performance on the park......Agree need forwards but have been for a few seasons now....don't believe we cant get them..as the price is too high or that they cannot be guaranteed game time if they come..believe the rumour mill is saying Stevie Thomson is coming back next season to join us from Berwick...that is going backwards in my book...However wont really concern me.
  7. Junior football, what is the future?

    Different game from me.....who are our best two strikers?
  8. Tonights Scores on the doors

    That would have suited Bonnyrigg fine....outplayed and out thought by a back 3 who swept up everything before them..The centre half a Bonnyrigg lad who was part of an outstanding Bonnyrigg under 21 team 5 years ago..but wasn't good enough for New Dundas...what is it about local clubs that don't like signing local youngsters that want to play for them..they couldn't buy him now...end result stroll for Penicuik at 3-1..very big crowd.
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    No I don't and it is another strand of your persistent juvenile drivel on here.. Regarding the Season Ticket production at the gate..my two friends at my back were waved through but insisted on showing theirs.....your Gate person was just a wee bit embarrassed at that action.
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    No but they have had large amounts of taxpayers money pumped into them that the successful Penicuik team hasn't.

    You need to change your script writer or leave off the free cider and whacky baccy...or is it Irish Mist or Jamiesons.
  12. Junior football, what is the future?

    Just as I felt at the game I attended....crowd 55....walked round and counted them...no banter at all....
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    kafc....thank you for your kind remarks.....your club took the plunge and have been successful despite the bile that was thrown your way at the end of last season from many in the junior ranks......I have said repeatedly..the Pyramid is coming for all clubs and it will eventually benefit Scottish football as a whole...everyone finding their comfortable level.....I wish every team well that's taking the step..but for me junior football has its own magic that I haven't felt at LL games I have attended that's my bottom line..my choice is not to follow the team in the Eof S but that makes me a dinasuar in some of our clubs supporters eyes..fair doos..but I reserve the right to my opinion and choice of where spend my Saturdays..that seems an alien concept to some posters..and that's it.....Good luck next season. maybe I will venture out of town when you come visiting in the next town..and maybe the atmosphere will be different ..who knows but I am not going to be corralled into following a brand I dont want too...I do wish some people would respect that and not start throwing mud and making innuendoes about me and my friends....who by the way half will be following the team next year.
  14. Junior football, what is the future?

    Your impertinence has no bounderies to assume that I don't understand the make up or Constitution of our Community club......I would be interested in knowing who my cohorts are who gather before games in the High Street and reminisce about our last Scottish cup games are....but truth be told this is only a small part of the infantile drivel that has become the norm from the poster and his curia....against those who don't swallow the New Dundas line as gospel.....but they are a happy inward looking bunch I am sure living in their bubble...Maybe that was why I was challenged at one of the games to produce my season ticket at the gate..the first time ever....Mistaken identity again.....sad.
  15. Junior football, what is the future?

    I believe the Pyramid will one day embrace all clubs and that should be good for Scottish football as a whole..and yes Penicuik will have to take their place in the order of things..but you know as I know Penicuik don't own their park and under no circumstances could they raise the money to meet all the requirements of the required License criteria to be able to compete on equal footing with those who do own their parks or the ones in our area and further afield who have had the Largees of local taxpayers money pumped in..Midlothian Council are skint as it is and have other more pressing avenues for the taxpayers money ..they have spent their allocation on two of the local clubs who could gain their License because of the work already done....Regarding tonight ..we were out played in every department..that is the bottom line....with a team on the field that is sitting 4 points away from winning the Super League again...same team that we are told repeatedly we have strength in depth in every department..didn't show tonight I am afraid..dont blame the manager or the referee...yellow cards for mouthing.again....we must have players on the border line of not playing again this season......Yes I am fortunate that I still have long standing friends in Penicuik who I meet regularly.. socially. and as I have said before..I am not interested in other clubs domestic politics and the subject is never broached at anytime..what I do know they have one of the best run clubs in junior football and the Officials are always at the gates welcoming away fans as they come in whatever the game...good PR and the match programme they produce is of the highest quality...... Our nearest senior team is in the Lowland League and I have ventured to their matches on several occasions over the last few seasons..and stood beside the very sparse spectators and there is no atmosphere at all..irrespective if it is the big Scottish or what.....not for me this level of football I am afraid..Again my choice.. Every possibility that there wont be any junior football in the east within the next few years...then that is the way of things....then it could be the local under 21,s for me then..but one thing for certain you wont see me at the back of the goals at New Dundas....could I paraphrase an old stanza...You will be pleased that a dinasuar has left the building......Onwards and Upwards as the saying goes. and genuinely..good luck .n your new venture.
