  1. It's not a good look when two of the top three clubs are B teams and it will be even worse if they win the league in the future. Get rid of both of them, replace them with WoS/EoS sides and increase the relegation spots to three. I wonder if first teams are allowed to pay their way into the Lowland League like B teams are? Is it one rule for the Bigot Brothers and another for everyone else?
  2. I can't imagine them winning a playoff against the East or West champions any time soon if ever. If I was a Gretna fan, I'd rather be going down to the East with much less chance of promotion but a better variety of clubs. I think it would be pretty dull only playing clubs in your local area and having no prospect of relegation and very few new clubs joining the league.
  3. No-one cares which team goes down, just that there actually is a team relegated which still isn't guaranteed. If I was a Gretna fan, I'd certainly be fearing relegation. They'd likely be stuck in the South of Scotland league permanently under the current system.
  4. Automatic promotion for the South would be a waste of time. Should really be West & East champions up and a playoff between West & East runners up for third promotion spot.
  5. Potentially 0 depending on other promotions/relegations. Vale of Leithen could still stay up this season despite not having picked up a point since 2019/20. Joke of a system at the moment.
  6. Pretty poor set of results for the Highland League today including losses v Preston, Dunipace, Sauchie and Jeanfield. I'd imagine it's a sign of things to come over the next few years as more East/West sides get licensed.
  7. Also a mention of Berwick being the only English club to play in Scotland despite that being factually untrue. Even on their Twitter page, they incorrectly state "England's only club to play in the Scottish senior leagues".
  8. Banks O'Dee will win their league but not sure if Golspie are highly likely. They've never really dominated the league like BoD have.
  9. What system for promotion/relegation would you propose for the Lowland League?
  10. Yeah, I know it's extremely unlikely but the fact that the possibility exists for a team to end on 0 points and stay up is ridiculous.
  11. They aren't much of a match for the weaker teams either having lost (I think) 26 in-a-row and not having picked up any points since 2019. Still, if the tier 4/5 promotions/relegations go their way, they'll be safe for another year.
  12. Unless they merge with the WoS, they can't drop down a tier. Dropping down a tier would mean promoting into the WoS Premier which doesn't make sense either.
  13. About time to remove the B teams entirely from the cup.
  14. Isn't it far better that the best non-league sides face the SPFL sides rather than minnows who haven't got a hope of beating them? The only reason clubs like Golspie had any chance of playing an SPFL side is because of the senior/junior divide. A quick look at their record (I might have missed some results) doesn't exactly make good reading. Golspie - never played a league side as far as I can tell St. Cuthbert Wanderers - 1-3 v Elgin in 2012/13, 0-9 v Stranraer in 2010/11 then you've got to go back to the 70s when they last played a league side. Wigtown & Bladnoch - 0-9 to Stranraer in 2011/12, 0-9 v Dunfermline in 1961/62 plus some matches in the 50s when there was no qualifying.
  15. Very glad that only the 12 premier teams get a bye into round four. Couldn't they use a different system instead of byes in the preliminary round? Rewarding teams for their performance in the previous season? I know that would be difficult because of Covid wiping out last season but, in general, I think it would be a better system than random byes.
