  1. Yoker news today

    Going by Port Glasgow's approach to the game on Wednesday at Holm Park we'll need full riot gear to protect our players down there in a fortnight. A more angry, aggressive, argumentative, downright dirty team I haven't seen for many a season. And this was them in the lead until the 80th minute! Two men sent off and a few more lucky not to be. I can only assume they were annoyed about something before they took to the pitch. Maybe because they were missing the One Show?

    On the evidence of today's performance I believe this Yoker team is one of the worst performing I have seen in over forty years of supporting this great wee Club. The goals conceded today have to rank with the most amateurish and laughable we have seen this season and indeed for many a season. Primary school defenders would have hung their heads in shame. Anyone looking at a 3-3 result would think, good game. From my perspective as a Yoker supporter I think we were lucky not to be on the end of a real doing. Without any disrespect to Thorniewood,who got their tactics right, a better team would have scored another four or five against us. That gives me no joy to say. We were that bad. The irony is we have decent players in the squad but the level of performance is far below what they can deliver. The answer. Get a MANAGER in NOW. As far as I'm concerned the interim period is over. From the body language of the George brothers today it seems to me they've lost any semblance of authority over this shambles and might not be too far away from throwing in the towel. Or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part. But if they do what do we do then? We need a Manager now who can give the players a direction, stop the bickering between the sidelines and the field of play and most importantly get the most out of the players in the squad who have something to offer. Now is the time for a change, before it becomes too late.

    But they're all decent guys, well most of them! Saturday was disappointing but the better team won so no complaints. We now need to try to move up the League a bit. Defending still not good enough, midfield slack, not scoring enough goals, etc etc etc.

    Yoker were last in the quarters in 2015 when we lost 3-2 to Linlithgow Rose at Holm Park. I'm pretty sure we reached that stage a few years earlier also when we lost to Arthurlie. Looking forward to the Wishaw tie, I hope our recent improvement in form continues and we give a better account of ourselves than we did at the Beltane. However lack of games doesn't help if you're trying to get form back. We'll see where we are on Saturday.

    Game off. Waterlogged. Disappointed, but understandable. Next week surely!!

    Forecast has changed again. Lots of rain overnight into Saturday.
  7. Bankies nxt season

    While I haven't read all the posts I think this is a great debate about an issue which is going to grow in importance. I just wish there was a willingness in the SJFA to look outside their own wee bubble and come up with some forward thinking to stop the drip drip effect of teams joining the pyramid system. After all we play the same rules in the Juniors as any other set up so why not amalgamate, affiliate or whatever it takes to get the Juniors into the system where there is a goal of moving through the pyramid? With no disrespect to Clydebank I only think the SJFA will see this if bigger, longer established and more successful clubs talk about moving. Anyway good luck to the "noisy neighbours" whatever they do next season.

    Is that the one that said it would snow like mad last week and, ahem ...........it snowed like mad? Anyway let's hope we can get it played.

    Greatest respect Taxman but that forecast is a lot of Michael Fish. Haha. Site I looked at says it's to be below zero from Friday night into Saturday morning. So with the amount of water in the ground we could be frozen off. But it's Scotland so who knows. Fingers crossed it goes ahead.

    Scheduled for 17th March if Yoker v Wishaw is decided by then of course.

    Confirmed on the Club Twitter. You must be psychic.
  12. Friday Night Football

    Was it not us playing Renfrew that night ? Was a night b4 old firm game an we won 2-1 . You are probably right. I remember one your goals was from almost half way but again I could be wrong.
  13. Yoker news today

    Don't know where you have been looking, but he hasn't been a regular scorer for us. He has 4 goals, 1 against Kello in August and a hat trick at Darvel in October. Has shown some flashes that he might be a decent player but he is still a fairly raw youngster finding his feet in the Juniors, one thing you are guaranteed though is that he will put a shift in. As Essdee has mentioned, they are cousins, not brothers. Thanks for the correction. Appreciated.
  14. Friday Night Football

    Only Friday night game I've been to was at Renfrew against Rob Roy. Decent turn out and a good game. Throw in a howling storm to make it interesting for the players and for me it was a success. I might be wrong but I think it was the night before an Old Firm game a season or so back. Whatever, it was enjoyable before visiting the pub to dry out! I would like to see more of them. However I recall somebody saying that the cost to replace one of the bulbs at Renfrew was about £200. None of your long life bulbs for these things. But that's something the clubs have to budget for anyway.

    Good pedigree then. From what he showed on Saturday could be a good addition. But can they play together? Haha. I remember seeing his name quite regularly as a scorer for Petershill fairly recently. I think the fair haired boy who started up front is called McKinnon? Stand to be corrected. He too looked decent. Needs a goal, then he might get us a few.
