  4. Lets go with current league structure and guessing what will happen to the East of Scotland league next year. One Division or two? Or two parallel Divisions on a East, Mid Lothian and Borders in one the rest in the other. Let Tynecastle go to one Lothian Thistle to the other if they are still in the league. 13 teams currently though sounds like Dalkeith, Clydebank and possibly Bonnyrigg IN, there could be more though. Stirling Uni EoS (their reserve team) OUT head to Caledonian Amateur League so it has been said. Say there are 16-18 teams, playing a 30 to 34 league game season at that level too many games? An interesting approach that would appease the strong former Junior clubs in a tiered 2 Division league would be say 2 leagues of 8. Then taken from the idea above; They play twice 14 games, half season top 2 in 2nd Division replace the bottom 2 in the 1st Division. Then 2nd half of season 8 and 8 again another 14 games. 28 league games total, 2 promotions and relegation a season, makes the season 2 games shorter than a 30 game 16 team league, so more palatable at that level and more competitive and exciting league. New stronger clubs joining in the lower divisions can gain access to top league quickly. Same approach could be used with 24 team league.

  6. Over to Northern Ireland in 25 minutes?

    Think it was the public purse, £7 million or abouts. https://www.derryjournal.com/sport/football/derry-city/video-behind-the-scenes-look-at-new-brandywell-stadium-1-8393598 The New stand is called The Mark Farren, and the stadium they might end up calling it The Ryan McBride. It's the same Brandywell site though without the dog track around it. https://www.derryjournal.com/image-gallery/in-pictures-14-sneak-peek-photos-from-behind-the-scenes-at-the-new-brandywell-stadium-1-8394488/8394381

    Yep, Derry City and Strabane Council built it to be correct. It was supposedly ready to rock last night verse Dundalk if it wasn't for the snow. The new stand is a bigger version of what Cove Rangers have got on the go 3/4 G community pitch aswell. It has big control room and plenty of media space, so they can play their European games at home if they ever go on a run.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    Denny to Dalmellington on a crisp winters morn, many a Glaswegian team finally finding out the delights of Muirkirk, the big smoke trips of the Ayrshire country boys, yep it'll be interesting and exotic for the first few seasons. Give it a year or 2 and you could see some joint 3rd tier South West/North East divide being set up. With them leagues making up the lesser games as the odd team goes Senior and new clubs enter. Doubt the West would run at any higher than 64 teams, then they would have to revert back to a 5 Division League. Clydebank are leaving, maybe Bonnyton would consider an application. Wonder what other Clubs have p***ked up their ears to apply for the juniors next season, any top amateur Clubs come to mind?
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    Think it's a good idea and progressive, though be interesting how it works out. Take the Highland League approach start the league last week of July and reserve the weekends for the League games.
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    I'm not disagreeing sounds good, more regular home fixtures. Though the west and especially Ayrshire is damp most of the year.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    Well where would they go to? Moving to the pyramid only benefits the bigger stronger clubs that could make it easy enough to the Lowland league and remain there. For any smaller club North East or West Region the loss of local derbies, travel and cost would add up.
  12. Junior football, what is the future?

    Summer football so you could play games in the evenings without floodlights, ludicrous idea that one. I know you mean the end of season backlog. Scrap Replays idea is a good one, barring Clydebank heading to Seniors the West are due to be playing a 30 game league season. Good luck with that. There's 8 teams that have played less than 10 league games this season in the West and 24 less than a dozen, it's now March. How are some of these Clubs going to cope in a 30 game league season? Book out Toryglen and Ravenscraig November through to March or Summer football?

    Collateral damage we will just have to live with You're a Hitler.
  14. Over to Northern Ireland in 25 minutes?

    What about all your Kinship brethren that planted the savage land of Ulster all them centuries ago, and all that Scottish heritage, tradition and Presbyterianism that they brought with them and nurtured into the great Ulster-Scots Culture?
  15. Over to Northern Ireland in 25 minutes?

    Yeah the Brexit vote might finally get voters in NI out of the divide and could do more in leading to a United Ireland than anything else over the last 20 years.
