  1. I see you're back with your unhinged red dot campaign. a couple of dozen at the last count. Is that all you have to worry about to fill your sad little life? It may go against your normal instincts, but at times like this, try being nice to people.
  2. That's not practical on any level.
  3. You wont get a level playing field I'm afraid, we're in an unprecedented situation and difficult decisions need to be taken, and soon.
  4. Nobody is really badly penalised this season. If subsequently next season you can't stay off the bottom of a 16 team league well, nobody else to blame. Whatever happens, someone, somewhere won't be happy.
  5. Doubt it. Brora way ahead of everyone else, unlikely to be caught, and maybe the others are not fussed at the chance (albeit very unlikely) of an SPFL play-off.
  6. I'd like to see the SPFL go 14-14-16. Dundee Utd and ICT go upto Premiership, top 6 in League One into Championship, everyone else plus Kelty and Brora into L1. Nobody penalised. LL are then down to 15, no relegation, promote Bo'ness and Threave (if they want it) and open up applications for 18th place (or second EoS club?). Allows then to relegate 2 clubs next season. EoS Premier potentially down to 14, promote Tynecastle, LTHV, Leith and Dunipace (the only 4 clubs with realistic chances of promotion) and run with 18 for a season. Drop a cup or two to accomodate. Below that, Conferences as has been agreed or First/Second. Not perfect by any means, but a way forward where there's fewer clubs losing out, and the SPFL gets much needed reform.

  8. As if to prove my point above, Brora Rangers handed HL title, season ended. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51987594?fbclid=IwAR2dNWDIvBXmbkSJkZolRK5WInYBt9IJS9g3Nc-ExWRu0VX0U38LRTzwbZ8
  9. Decisive action, Brora Rangers handed HL title, season ended. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51987594?fbclid=IwAR2dNWDIvBXmbkSJkZolRK5WInYBt9IJS9g3Nc-ExWRu0VX0U38LRTzwbZ8
  10. However, what's good for the SPFL might not be for the EoS or the WRJFA. Leagues need to make decisions based on what is right for their members and not anyone else. There's also massive disparities between league games left to play in the various leagues.
  11. Take care of yourself and the family, looks like you've done a top job so far. Hopefully there's no rebound in the virus over there, some things are way more important than fitba.
  12. Pubs, clubs & restaurants all to close with immediate effect.
  13. Some news just out; "Policies to limit the spread of coronavirus would need to be in place for "at least most of a year" to prevent intensive care units being overwhelmed, according to official scientific advice to the government." As I said earlier, trying to get next season off the ground may be difficult let alone finish this one.
  14. Contracts expire 30th June. There's upto 8 new clubs applying. It simply isn't practical to continue this season indefinitely and writing off next season. Looking at the figues above you're looking at 9-10 weeks to completely finish the league season, scrapping cups. That is in addition to 3 or 4 weeks "pre-season". So maybe 3-4 months to complete the league season (not taking into account the weather). Clubs need to start sorting player contracts and budgets for next season, and start raising revenue from ST sales and other ventures. Players and coaches will also be wanting to go on holiday once the travel restrictions make it practical, as will referees and committee. The PM said today they they hope to see the "tide turning" (ie the peak in cases heading downwards) in 12 weeks, that's mid June and that's just for things to begin to start looking better. IMO we need to accept this season will not finish, and declare that on resumption of football (whenever that is) it will be 2020-2021. Let's say by some miracle we can start pre-season end of June and start playing mid July, great, ease clubs gently back into the new season allowing for holidays etc. and get the new clubs on board. However I think that is excepionally optimistic. Ian Maxwell doesn't think Scotland will be playing Israel in June. What's important is that a solution for the SPFL isn't neccesarily the best for anyone else, a solution for the LL may not be best for the EoS. EoS need to do what is best for their members.
  15. Number of league games left to play; Kinnoull FC 17 Easthouses Lily MW 16 Ormiston 15 Jeanfield Swifts 14 Oakley United 14 Burntisland Shipyard 14 Peebles Rovers 14 Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts 14 Edinburgh United 14 Linlithgow Rose 13 Glenrothes 13 Preston Athletic 13 Hill of Beath Hawthorn 12 Dundonald Bluebell 12 Penicuik Athletic 12 Whitehill Welfare 12 St Andrews United 12 Dalkeith Thistle 12 Coldstream 12 Arniston Rangers 12 Broxburn Athletic 11 Tynecastle 11 Tranent Juniors 10 Camelon Juniors 10 Blackburn United 10 Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale 10 Dunipace 10 Haddington Athletic 10 Tweedmouth Rangers 10 Bo'ness United 9 Musselburgh Athletic 9 Dunbar United 9 Crossgates Primrose 9 Leith Athletic 9 Heriot Watt University 9 Craigroyston 9 Stirling University (EOSFL) 9 Hawick Royal Albert United 9 Sauchie Juniors 8 Newtongrange Star 8
