  1. Highland League restructuring

    The league's been full of meaningless games since Brora appeared with money. A league that produced no repeat winners for a decade after Huntly's fifth title in a row has now been reduced to little more than a rich mans plaything, with Brora and Formartine's financial backing, and Cove's ability to attract talent, skewing things badly at the top. The assumption that there's ambitious sides in the NCL and juniors has never been fully tested. Some talk the talk - like the SHFL clubs did when they voted for the pyramid - but few seem keen to walk the walk. The junior sides admitted of late - Locos, Formartine, Turriff and Strathspey - have been a real mixed bag. The league has willingly become part of the pyramid, but despite voting for it to happen, it doesn't seem too comfortable with its position in the league ladder. Until we fix our attitude to taking part in a national league, I'm not sure where we go.
  2. Highland League restructuring

    The SHFL will roll on as a single division until there's more than 20 teams in it.

    She thinks she likes every kind of food. Her only having one tooth means she struggles with ham, chicken and the like, but she gives it a go. Big fan of licking the flavour off Wotsits and Skips, too.

  5. Pyramid Structure Below Highland League

    Since the pyramid playoffs first started we've had this every year amongst folk in the SHFL. There's definitely a problem explaining it to older folk, who continue to wonder how the SHFL would work with 19 teams (answer - without much difficulty) or if Cowdenbeath/Edinburgh City would get relegated into it (no) or if we'd promote Banks O'Dee into the SHFL (no). It'll only be another twenty years before folk understand it. Not that it's any real relevance for the SHFL anyway, seeing as one of the statistically best ever SHFL sides (Brora), the most consistent over the past fifteen years (Cove) and a club well known for showing up the big occasion (Buckie) all blew their chances at getting promoted. If they can't do it, and Cove don't this season, then I doubt anyone ever will.
  6. Pyramid Structure Below Highland League

    Teams don't get to pick the league they play in. Cowdenbeath would go into the Lowland League. Montrose were rumoured to be considering going junior (or folding) if they were relegated but who knows how that would have panned out. The SHFL voted down a two league set-up in the immediacy but it'll be considered again should the league reach and/or breach 20 teams. We'd then face promoting a junior side into a league they'd romp while at the same time hate playing in because the top tier would be mostly Shire and anyone promoted into the bottom tier would face plenty treks to Fort, Strathspey, Inverness, Nairn, possibly Wick and certainly darkest Moray.

    Flew out of Glasgow last week to Mallorca. Only a few folk clapped when the plane landed. A weird experience.

    Cove will win the Highland League, almost certainly. The rest don't have the consistency, with Formartine losing heavily to Cove then beating Brora 5-0 at Dudgeon Park. Cove beat Buckie 7-1, only for Buckie to beat second place Fraserburgh 4-1 last month. Having racked up the goals months ago, Cove just need to grind out wins from here on in. And now they've got their ground on the way, they're maybe taking the play-offs seriously, unlike last time.

    On account of Lesmahagow not playing on the 7th, 14th or 21st of October (as far I know), they've been slung out and Larkhall have received a walkover result. Third round draw up and coming.

  13. Cove on the Move

    The Broch won't have the legs for the full season. Cove should romp it this season. What they choose to do come play-off time, well. Hopefully they take more interest in those games than last time.
