  1. WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led?

    "Look like joining.....in 2019/20", Scone may be in for a shock.
  2. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    Pete Smyth is a lunatic and best ignored.

  5. WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led?

    The simple way forward is to form a completely independent West of Scotland Football League (and NoSFL), invite applicants and let the change happen naturally, as it will. Not many of the existing senior clubs are interested in the Junior Cup, particularly the HFL. The Southern Challenge Cup is open to LL, EoS, SoS and WoS when one is formed, that will satisfy the need for a semi-national competition for the time being. Over time, perhaps a truly national competition can be started for all non-league clubs but it should not be an excuse for the SJFA to continue to exist. We should not be looking for excuses to shoehorn in another layer of blazerdome. The SJFA should only continue to exist as a body outwith the Pyramid for those clubs who, for now, do not want to join the WoS , EoS or NoS.

    It wasn't really personal, it's all fact and I could go further and I may do one day. The fact he still holds the position he does after everything that has gone on baffles me.

    You also have dual contracts in England, where players can turn out for eg a tier 9 club and also play for a tier 6 club. Not sure how exactly it works but there was one striker last season or the season before who scored two hattricks on the same day for different clubs.

    Looks like he has deleted his post and reverted to a red dot attack instead

  11. WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led?

    If he wants to be the figurehead of Junior football, and with it a nice cushy number and office at Hampden, and the trappings of an SFA blazer as well, then he has to take the rough with the smooth. Just like any head of an FA or a League. Just like Stewart Regan and Neil Doncaster, who had/have offices along the corridor. He isn't above criticism and the SJFA accounts should be public knowledge along with his remuneration. He watches what is said on here, he calls up clubs and makes threats (he once tried to get me banned from Blackburn games!), he makes life difficult for those who criticise. I could say a hell of a lot more but I wont. The man is a charlatan, he's a disgrace, but he still has his supporters who protect and defend him. And some wonder why clubs in the East had finally had enough.
  12. Found this in the Norway v Scotland programme from 1954 if it helps fill some gaps

    It's a jokeshop.

    In that scenario you'd end up in a situation I just described, a West Lothian League with a few stragglers, and some regions stronger than others. It's not really where we want to be. If necessary, a repeat of this upcoming season would be more sensible and seeding can done in the same manner to achieve roughly equitable leagues. That is just as attractive to new applicants, perhaps more so. Mind you I'd rather have a straight 16 team second tier for 2019/20 and no more flaffing around.
