  1. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Agreed. I don't think it's sour grapes. I think people object fairly to teams like Edusport. BSC would be better if they could get a ground in Glasgow but Edusport are a bit of a joke no matter where they play in my opinion.
  2. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Yeah, Maxwell didn't come across well. I'm not sure he really understand non-league football.
  3. Club Licencing

    Thanks for the info. I make it all clubs with floodlights applying except Sauchie, Dunipace, Dunbar, Leith and Heriot-Watt and all top fours except Bo'ness.
  4. EOS Grounds for Optimism

    Not sure where to post this as there are a number of threads covering similar topics but good luck to all the clubs this week who have applied for licences. The more licenced clubs, the better as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure lots of people have put in work at various clubs and hopefully they are rewarded with a licence.
  5. LL Relegation

    Highland League clearly should have relegation. Separate issue to this discussion. Lowland League will have a very strong EoS Premier below it hopefully with many licensed clubs. Many of the clubs will be stronger than some of the weaker Lowland League clubs. There will be pressure for more relegation spots in the future. The Highland League currently has no league below it and apparently no clubs desperate to get in. I don't think you can argue against more relegation spots in the LL by saying HL has no relegation spots. Very different situations below the HL and LL currently. HL issue needs to be fixed but that's not a justification to keep the LL at one spot.
  6. LL Relegation

    Opening up the LL to more relegation places would make it a stronger league more quickly and would give them more bargaining power in getting an automatic promotion spot to the SPFL. Seen it posted a few times on here but still don't see why relegation spots from the SPFL has any relevance to relegation spots from the LL.
  7. Junior football, what is the future?

    Hopefully the rules are applied equally. Feels like the normal time is once you're in, you're in. I suppose it would be very hard for them to let clubs retain a licence without floodlights but they could give them a long grace period. The fact that every single one of the former SFA members managed to get licensed makes me wonder how equal it will be.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    Totally undeserved for jc1 considering the way he's come on here and openly debated the future for his club and listened to lots of different opinions. That type of comment is not the way to go about convincing clubs to leave the juniors. I think he deserves credit for the way he's posted on here recentlu regardless of what decision his club makes.
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    I don't really mind what organisation the clubs end up in. I think that the priority is all clubs ending up in the same one. If the juniors have to give up their organisation then maybe the seniors give up their one too. I doubt it will happen but I was simply replying to another poster who suggested it. EoS or new organisation, it didn't really matter. Very few of the existing EoS clubs have a long history in the EoS. No real need to do away with the EoS but everyone being in a new merged one with no claims to one side having "won" is one potential solution. Not the most realistic and too many conflicts for it to happen but still a potential option. Any merger right now on juniors and seniors clearly wouldn't be equal. Would have to be smaller number of east juniors in the top league considering most of their best clubs have already moved to the EoS and obviously the Tayside issue is still to be resolved.
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    I think that's a decent idea. I have no problem with east juniors being in for one season as long as it's made clear that a merger will take place at the end of the season and clubs in both associations know what they are playing for. A new organisation for both to be combined in might end some of the senior v junior arguments but may prove difficult in practice. Whatever happens, the future should be all clubs in the same system. Too many people trying to protect their own jobs may make this difficult. Still crazy that clubs from the same area are in separate systems.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    Don't see any point in senior teams playing in the junior cup. Just means extra fixtures. Waste of time for the senior teams IMO.
  12. Junior football, what is the future?

    If junior clubs play in the senior pyramid and the leagues have to change their rules etc. to align with the seniors too then how are they still junior?
  13. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    How many EoS clubs have floodlights?
  14. Junior football, what is the future?

    He's right that two stands had about 500 in each but he forgot to mention the other two which were virtually sold out...
  15. Junior football, what is the future?

    Two stands were almost sold out including the biggest stand. Wheatfield then had two sections open and Roseburn had a couple open for Livi fans.
