  1. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Nice to see that those running Scottish football are just as incompetent in non-league matters as they are in the top leagues. What exactly is the point in moving the junior leagues into the seniors if they are also going to stop giving it licenses? No teams would even be able to get promoted without a licence. What do the juniors gain from joining the senior pyramid if they can't even get a licence? What is the point of the senior pyramid if teams can't easily be promoted and relegated between the leagues? Awful state of affairs as usual but sadly I fear that nobody running Scottish football really cares about the non-league teams. I reckon they just want juniors into the senior pyramid so they don't have to deal with actually making a proper pyramid and they want to close off licensing to protect their current member clubs. Ultimately, Scottish football is almost always about self-interest.

    They need to just go for a proper football club name and definitely with the local area incorporated into the name. Not helping themselves with ridiculous names.

    Any chance you can stop posting about burnieman and share what you know? Would be more interesting.
  4. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    Do you think all three will be accepted?
  5. LL Relegation

    The clubs have met all the deadlines. It's the SFA who have messed up. I hope they don't punish the EoS clubs for this. Would be farcical if clubs moved to EoS from juniors to get licensed and try to get promoted to LL (although obviously not all clubs had this as a realistic aim) and then they were denied promotion because the SFA didn't get round to giving out licences.

    When did this happen?
  7. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    The talk of the East juniors joining the seniors has probably prevented another potential exodus. Interesting to see if any east juniors have applied other than Glenrothes.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    Don't really see how the factors junior fans use to talk about how junior football is better than senior football would still be in place if all are in the senior system. The distinction between senior and junior non-league clubs would become fairly meaningless.
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    No more separate junior system then. Welcome to the seniors everyone (except the forgotten north obviously).
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    Isn't local interest in derbies enhanced by not playing the same teams all the time? The excitement of playing local teams isn't the same if they are the only teams you play. Just my opinion of course.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    If there are only 9 teams in the South Super then how many league games will they play? Surely not 16? 32 seems a lot for juniors and 24 would leave an imbalance with home/away games. Wouldn't it get a bit boring playing the same local teams over and over again?
  12. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Will this he another meeting where no real progress is made and we find out nothing? I hope not but hard to expect anything given the lack of official news for so long.
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    They can still claim to be "junior" despite being in the senior pyramid. Cut ties with SJFA and I suppose that option is gone. Seems to be important to some and I'd imagine especially in the west.
  14. EoS Conference A chat 2018-19

    I'd like to see Coldstream do it but it's a massive ask. 7 matches left. H v Penicuik (1st), A v Hill of Beath (2nd), H & A v Musselburgh (3rd), A v Newtongrange (4th) with only Oakley and Peebles away being against teams outwith the top four.
  15. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Why would Glenrothes move to the EoS if that's happening?
