  2. I love how the narrative has now become '50 (at most), over jubilant japesters' managed to enter the field of play for a couple of minutes, before returning to their allocated seating', those pesky pyrotechnics, why every club has problems with them, seats being broken? happens everywhere, may have been around 10 snapped, but again, over exuberance. Boyd being hit by a coin...unfortunate, and the culprit should be found. (it looked more like over 100 that were over the barriers but not to worry, (including the guy who reached the centre circle to take a selfie with Sinclair) Nothing about the sectarian singing throughout the game...(probably 'folk' songs), people being assaulted outside the ground, the toilets being smashed up, the Green Brigade or Bhoys or whatever version it is, turning up trying to mimic the dress of the IRA... Wonder how the fun loving fans behind the goal would have responded had Killie gone straight up the park from kick off at the goal and equalised? Presumably shook the hand of every Killie fan at the end congratulating them on such a sporting performance from their team. Nothing to see here basically, onto Tynecastle soon for a repeat performance.

  3. Surely the best thing to do right now would be to add the West Premiership at Tier 6 in time for 19/20 whilst negotiations are ongoing for the East to allow the West clubs to progress? It seems it would be very easy to include the West Premiership (maybe it could be renamed West of Scotland Football league for consistency?) into the pyramid. I'm also not understanding the issues with the Junior Cup - why not just keep the name Junior Cup and include all of the non-league leagues in the competition? Surely that would increase the revenue from the cup too with more teams and better chance of marketing?

  6. This post is rubbish. Firstly you're comparing the signings of a manager who had three windows against a manager who has had one window and been in the job a matter of months. That's like comparing the striking sorrow of a Sunday morning hangover after going hell for leather on an away day to the hydrated highs of a Wednesday morning. Not comparable. If we were however to compare players in and out then Moussa drags down the percentage of signing capability by enough to already have McIntyre ahead. Every position that McCann and even Hartley could never see needed changing has already been corrected. McGowan isn't starting (Robson will be very good), Kerr isn't starting (Not good enough), we actually have wingers, Dieng is the best keeper since Bain, Nelson and Curran is a very good partnership and Ryan McGowan was excellent on Saturday and clearly better than the centre backs McCann continually brought in from the stables of the United Kingdom (Bar Hendry). The results improved pretty much exactly when he came in aswell. Livi away we were thumped before Hearts at home and Celtic at home. If you really think he could've stepped in the door and guided the footballers we had to victory in them games then you're more stupid than everyone thinks. Drawing at Easter Road and drawing at home to Sevco were excellent results that McCann would've has us beaten in and was already a marked improvement with the exact same players as McCann had as we waited on January coming. Not to mention playing most of the game against Sevco with ten men and taking 4/6 from our direct competitors at home. Saturday was actually our second win under McIntyre in five having had a brilliant result to beat Hearts at Tyne castle, which only one team has managed this season. With his own squad we have been beaten once from five where we should've been two up at half time and played good football until the last 20 minutes. Unfortunately Big Dopey Innis gave away a comical penalty before knocking us out the cup a few days later and being sent packing back to London Circus (I wonder who brought him in). In the form table we currently sit comfortably in top five. McCann couldn't even go five games unbeaten in the Bet fred cup, losing to Dunfermline at home with his near strongest team (not to mention Ayr United decimation in the LC). If this was Barry Smith in charge you'd become a documentary figure after hitting triple figures of masterbating on a daily basis. Sometimes you have to accept you were wrong. The Non Deluded One is happy to. Not only is McIntyre improved us he's playing the way we all wanted for years. It'll take a turn for the worse for us to go down now with the players we have in our squad. Don't get me wrong we may well go down but now we have the quality to be looking to avoid even the play offs. Which would be a magnificent job from the ex-DAB McIntyre. We could potentially look to get a better name in than McIntyre but he is earning himself a contract next season and I think I claimed I'd not be back until he leaves in a fit of fury. A great turnaround from the man. Not reading this Anne Frank excerpt back to proof check it will either make sense or I won't. I don't give a f**k. Thank you.

  9. Got the weight down to 88kg so that's 17kg down in total now. Even starting to see a hint of definition in the upper body in the mirror too. Marathon training going well too, did 18 miles on Saturday at average pace of 9min per mile. Health kick been going about 5 months now and loving it, it's done my mental health the world of good. Leaps and bounds from the very dark place I was in previously. So glad I just committed to it eventually.

  11. The scenes at the end are manufactured, try hard shite btw. A product of Arse Cheek one upmanship where the **** have gone out to try and prove how hard they celebrate to try and show theres a title race and the Celtic fans are reciprocating. Nothing like that happened over the last few years. Even in celebrations its all about worrying about being better than the other cheek. Fucking pathetic

  17. If Jim Mac ever reads this he’d be thinking ‘see if a vacancy comes up at St Johnstone, Motherwell, Killie I’m fucking taking it’ - and who could blame him. He played Parrish and he made a James Hunt of it, as for Hamilton’s mystery injury - very convenient. He got rid of Boyle and Innis - both a pair of donkeys. He’s replaced Cammy Kerr. He’s permanently signed 2 strikers miles better than what we had. I think we should lay off him a bit. No Wonder our home form is much worse than our away - Dens is a tough gig.

  20. So they want a People's Vote, but won't have a by election to let the people in their constituencies decide whether they still want them representing them now that they've quit Labour. And, rather than contest their current seats in the next election, they're going to stand in marginals to split the vote and let the Tories in. A bunch of cowardly, pro austerity, pro privatisation, pro war Red Tories.

  21. As I think has already been mentioned, the long and the short of it is - regardless of who took issue with what and when - the most recent minutes make abundantly clear the EoSFL’s quite sensible opposition to a geographically overlapping league in the Pyramid. This is an opposition that is fair, clear and should be maintained. Changes to the game - ie the addition of new leagues ( the Juniors) - are as important as they are desirable, but these changes should not be made simply for expediencies sake or, worse still, for the sake of the continuation of a body with no realistic or necessary place in the future of the game. Why create a portion of the Pyramid in the east that, geographically, mirrors that which is already there? Why? I’m at a loss to be able to answer this question, other than it suits Ian Maxwell to keep Tom Johnston onside and reveals the man as another in a long list of those who care not a jot about doing the right thing, only the easy thing. The EoSFL’s reps have been wrongly criticised in this thread when I believe that they have been both consistent and correct - Tom Johnston and the SJFA quite simply shouldn’t be represented at a meeting (the PWG) dedicated to discussing the interaction of leagues in the current and projected Pyramid, only the ERSJFA, the NRSJFA and the WRSJFA should. They are all represented by this one man simply for the preservation of this one mans job. Sadly, there’s probably no coincidence that Ian Maxwell and Tom Johnston each have an office not so very far separated along a reasonably short corridor at our National Stadium. Everyone else represented at the PWG have no such office. Go figure what’s being said during the coffee breaks at Hampden Park.

  22. Going part time isn't an embarrassment, masquerading as a FT team really is. Facts would suggest you're the worst FT team in Britain and it's causing you problems. Instead of being a lucrative choice for very good part time players you're the last resort for bang average full time ones. It's a no brainer. I'd imagine players would choose Raith over other like minded part time teams

  28. Wouldn't have been the other way, since our grizzled and weatherbeaten back four have about 80 years playing experience between them and don't give away those kinds of penalties. Johnson and Porteous might be callow, reckless and mental enough, but Johnson hospitalizes, on average, 3.5 opposing players per game, so he's currently banned by Special Order of the SFA Star Chamber, and Ryan Porteous is out for the season, after finding out the hard way you can't just grit your teeth and play through a bad case of broken kneecaps. As for Rangers, I believe they'll be missing Morelos and McGregor, so you might actually get a result by playing football, rather than just preparing the usual faux-outrage at the match officiating a week in advance.

  29. Surely if they were careerists then they wouldn't be doing this? They aren't stupid, they know they'll likely lose whichever seat they stand in. The properly careerist thing to do would be for them to get in line behind Corbyn.

  31. Another thing worth mentioning re GC, is that his substitutions are miles better than AA’s ever were. On Saturday 1-0 up with 20 minutes to go GC could have thrown McGinty on to shore up and defend what we had ( something AA would have done), instead he brought on 2 strikers McDonald and Mansell and went for the 2nd goal, I also think that GC is more tactically astute.

  32. The leaked minutes are very interesting and worthy of a good look. I would just be wary of drawing too many conclusions from them as they are only one part of the picture. It's clear a lot is being said in back channels regardless of how accurate the minutes are. It looks like everyone on this thread knows more about the specifics and problems of expanding the pyramid than Ian Maxwell does. He appears to simply want the juniors in the pyramid and be able to tick this box and then focus on what he deems to be higher priorities. He seems not interested in the details even if it means strange and bizarre ideas like two separate regional leagues covering the same region. To absolutely no-one's surprise, this lack of concern for the base of the Scottish pyramid is just another reflection of the overall lack of vision and leadership in the SFA as a whole. It must be remembered the EoS risked going out of existence for the benefit of Scottish football by haemorrhaging all their best clubs to create the LL. Their objections to the East Juniors joining at tier 6 are perfectly reasonable. The onus is on the juniors to find a way to obey the wish of the majority of their members to join the pyramid. That said, right now the following possible general outcomes, in descending order of probability, appear to be: 1. The PWG makes no headway. More east juniors defect to the EoS, leaving an even more fractured rump of mainly smaller clubs spread out over Fife, WL and Tayside and more problems for them down the line. The rest of the junior regions remain outside the pyramid. Clydebank join EoS. A possible WoS league enters the picture again as ambitious west junior clubs grow impatient. 2. East juniors split into north and south. The south league joins pyramid at tier 7 underneath EoS premier for one last season of conferences, or possibly underneath EoS lower divisions at tier 8. North form a Tayside league, possibly merging in some way with north juniors. The juniors then move over as a block into the pyramid. Exact details of north junior pyramid participation and HL involvement to be solved later, most likely postponed for years. 3. West juniors enter the pyramid for next season, but the north and east don't - the juniors find a way to solve any internal issues caused by some regions being in the pyramid and others not. As a result fewer east juniors defect to EoS thinking that if the west is already in, the east will follow at some point, and the east juniors restructure to keep members content for now. 4. EoS and East Juniors find a way to merge, possibly involving the HL/LL boundary line being adjusted. This allows everything else to be more or less solved amicably after that over a transitional season or two. 5. The SFA somehow railroads the east juniors into the pyramid at tier 6. What happens after that is anyone's guess, with litigation as @Robert James suggests a very possible consequence, but its also possible that all parties involved reluctantly accept that absurdity is an inescapable fact of Scottish football life, and find a way to muddle through it for the foreseeable future. I imagine some posters will think option 5 should be placed higher up the list....call me naive but I have faith in the power of common sense even in Scottish football. There's all manner of variations on the above, but those look to be the main possibilities at this stage. The north seems to be one of the main variables at present. It's unclear how much desire there is up there for them to join the pyramid. If they do - what is the HLs attitude to this? If not, what needs to happen for the rest of the juniors to join whilst leaving the north on the outside? Does the NCL want to be fully incorporated into the pyramid? If not, would their attitude change if the north juniors do get in? Still so many questions yet to be answered.

  46. I realise I'll probably be alone in this, but I think it's pretty shite personally. Another Americanism that we feel we have to adopt over here. Its so arbitrary who goes in and who doesn't. Everyone has their own feelings on who were key figures in their time watching the team and figures around the club, and that's the way it should be, not some set list. So many players/ figures have made a valuable contribution over the years who won't get near being inducted. I would prefer dinners to recognise teams of certain eras. If the players are no longer with us then their family members can be invited along. Do a wee video about the team and the characters, certain matches etc from the time, and interview key figures if we can. The team that got to the Scottish Cup SEMI final in the 1930's, The team that reached two semi finals in the early sixties, The Ormond era side, the Alex Rennie side, Totten's Saints, the 3rd place Monaco squad, and of course the Cup Final team, etc.
