Thought scoreline today at Tayport really flattered Mussleburgh nothing between the teams today

 

1st Mussleburgh goal should never have stood as was either a free kick out wide for Tayport or a definite pen

 

The less said about Steven Traynor the ref what a shocking performance never gave Tayport a single desicion all day apart 2 stonewall pens which should of been 3

 

 Plus only played 3 mins added time when should of been at least 7/8 for the amount of time wasting from Mussleburgh and the 3 players down injured for Mussleburgh who where never injured and could easily have been up and off within a minute was disgraceful

You my friend are a slaver! 

Which was it - either a free kick out wide or a definite penalty?! You don’t know yourself the way you are writing. I bet you were standing under the cover behind Tayport’s dugout so in fact saw hee-haw. I was standing at the 18 yard line near where Gill fell on all all fours and no way was he even touched.

Your only goal of the first half - your forward was backing up into the penalty box, waiting for the ball to come to him. Our goalie was coming towards the ball, when your player’s backward movement into Ally caused both  players to fall down, so no penalty there! 

Your second goal was caused by a howler by our goalie, who handed Reid the easiest goal he will ever score. No argument from me with the second penalty you were awarded.

Three injuries. The first at the far away side from where you were standing - our player went off with a hamstring injury, and was injured whilst he was on the pitch. If it was one of your players, would you say he was feigning the injury? Don’t talk daft! Also why would one of our best players want to be subbed? Maybe that is the mentality of Tayport players, but not ours. Second guy had been out for some time with a long term injury, so have some respect! No way is he an actor, and never goes down for no reason. Third player had to be helped off with a knee injury. Why would a good centre half go off for no reason.

Scoreline flattered Musselburgh? I’m wondering if you were even at the match, cause in the first half, apart from the first 15 minutes, your team were humpty! Losing 4 goals in a 22 minute spell tells me how superior we were to Tayport in the first half. Granted that Tayport came back into the match in the 2nd half, but no way over the 90 minutes were the two teams close in way they were playing. 

This season, Musselburgh beat Tayport 6-2 and 4-3.  Two seasons ago, Musselburgh came to Tayport and won 6-0, and won 3-2 at Musselburgh. These 4 games; Musselburgh scored total of 19 goals, with Tayport getting 7.  Now I see these scores, I’m coming round to your way of thinking that there is nothing between the sides - NOT!!

Musselburgh, Haddington and Dunbar are the top 3 teams in the Premier League just now

Though other teams have got games in hand, considering the start that Dunbar had to the season, what a great achievement for East Lothian clubs.

I wonder how many of them will actually be playing Junior next season Toffee.

Well in the wisdom of the East Region fixtures guy, with only 7 games of the season left, we've been handed 3 home games in the space of 7 days with less than 10 days notice. No wonder I'm happy we're leaving this shambles behind.

That said, the Fauldhouse game scheduled for the Wednesday 25th at 6.45pm has been moved to the Tuesday 24th with a 7.30pm ko, with the aid of the devils lanterns.

Hopefully all will be made clear after the EofS meeting, which I believe will on 26 April; to consider (approve) those Junior clubs who have elected to join their set up.

Will also be interesting how they allocate leagues for respective new admissions, based on the current EofS set up, and the number of teams who have applied to join from 18-19.

I was thinking the same and how many teams will benefit by now being promoted or avoiding relegation

If the amount of teams being quoted as leaving is correct then we may well be going back to the super league with two regional leagues beneath which means there will be no relegation from the premier as it will be scrapped.

We need the East Region to make a decision on the next season's set up asap after the 26th so that teams and their supporters don't think they are fighting for promotion or against relegations that may not be happening.

The fact that the applications to the EOS league appear to be coming under the official secrets act isn't helping anyone to plan ahead.

I think there are a number of teams who for whatever reason (maybe worried about prize money not being paid) are keeping quiet about their intentions for next season.

That's a real shame as these are the same people who moan when the fixtures aren't published quick enough.

Clubs that claim to have signed players for next season:

Do the contracts simply  role over to EOS or are these players not signed for next season  and clubs issuing incorrect information.

You sign to the club not the Grade - if a player is contracted to the end of next season for example - this remains valid if the club moves to EOS.

Well as it stands nobody has resigned and nobody has joined a new league as yet. I'd guess it will become clearer after the 26th but I'm sure there's enough info out there already to come up with a rough plan to deal with around 12 East Region clubs leaving. Most names mentioned so far are fairly accurate imo.

Well I sincerely hope so, if not, we've all made a rip roaring c**t of ourselves over the last few weeks. Still think there are clubs who have applied, not went public and will pull out

If 12 clubs end up leaving, 48 would remain, that is three leagues of 16.

Superleague and then North and South Divisions.  If 4 of those clubs leaving are Superleague, I’d be looking to scrap relegation from it and then promote the top 2 from the Premier, and the winners of North and South to take it back upto 16.  The remaining clubs out with the SL would form expanded North and South Divisions.

The only other option is smaller divisions and retain current structure ie 12-12-12-12

Will the winners of the regional leagues be promoted above the remaining teams in the Premier straight into the Super league? I would have thought they would cancel promotion from the North and South which means teams are playing for nothing.

Again until the 26th(assuming we are finally told then) we are just speculating.

12 team Divisions are awful, having spent some time in the Central Division 2 over the last few years its far too small a number to have a meaningful league - 22 games isn't enough to get the juices flowing. Carluke finished their league season on Saturday and 2 teams will finish this week in that league.

Minimum of 14 teams in a league for me, if the East is left with 48 then 3x16 is by far the most sensible plan.

If it is three leagues of 16 and 4 super league clubs leave then surely the top 4 in the premier will be giving automatic promotion

 

There is no way teams from the north league and south league should be giving promotion over third and fourth in the premier

To find a "Top 4" in the Premier you could go all the way down to 7th or 8th place given the teams allegedly leaving.  Therefore, perhaps it would be better to promote the Champions of the North and South otherwise their season will have been a waste.

Given the inability of the team currently sitting in fourth place in the Premier league to  remain in the Superleague in recent years then it might be better to promote  the North and South division champions.
