  1. EoS Conference B Thread 2019-20

    Meant to merging I think.
  2. EoS Premier Thread 2019-20

    Erm, there is the old Perth road?
  3. The Pelé Podcast - David Weatherston

    Good news. What needs to happen to fully launch you into becoming a big time TV superstar? If can get you there will you go back to writing previews/ quarterly reports etc? Or will you be too busy banging supermodels taking drugs and beefing with bothwick?
  4. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    Originally read this as ton of bricks. I didn’t consider that unrealistic.
  5. The Metalhead thread

    £100 tickets are just sickening. I’m quite happy to travel to gigs and will easily spend more when hotels and travel are included but I wouldn’t pay anyone that to play in my living room. It’s an utter piss take.
  6. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Licencing isn't meant to have any focus on football ability. We play matches against each other to judge that. Its about off-field standards, the entire point is that its not related to how good the players are.
  7. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Craigen is a decent pro at this level, but far from good enough to get me concerned he’s leaving. I would have probably kept him as he’ll provide utility cover in our squad to an ok level, reliable enough to come and fill a hole but rarely a match winner, there’s a pile like him. That’s cos outside of thomson and j.longridge you have very little to work with. Even j.longridge had too many bad spells. You have a ‘mostly did ok, couple of bad games’ craigen and Ashcroft and maybe beadling Then you have ‘decent but not here long enough’ keena, Anderson and maybe Scully. And L.Longridge as good for a brief spell but poor otherwise. After that is just a pile of shite. Being top 3 in our side isn’t an achievement. He’s very much a cally signing. Fits the mold of hardworking reasonably experienced at this level yet not spectacular.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    Dugouts on one side is pretty universal outside of juniors/amateur it’s just far easier to referee. Licences are required for tier 5 and above and Scottish cup, these have assistant refs who typically work with a ‘senior/specialist’ assistant who is trained with managing dugout situations and sub procedures etc. It makes no sense to have them on opposite sides. Again screening to prevent sights from outside the ground is always going to be expected. I don’t know the conditions of the old goalposts, but again it’s perfect sense such things are regulated. I absolutely get the anger over the SFA, clubs have been fucked over here, however let’s not question the full licensing process, is been made clear since day 1 that licensing is to apply to much more than having a decent ground.
  9. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Probably exactly what falkirk and Hamilton fans will tell you. He’s got a decent enough touch, crossing and shooting and can do ok physically. Ok championship played. His decision making is absolutely terrible tho, so many of his good attributes are wasted.
  10. 12 team Championship

    Depends what you mean by top level, if you mean top spfl then no. League 2 is full of guys that played for premiership youth sides but now with a decade experience.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    There’s normally a licensing meeting around June, LTHV and a few others got licensed around that time, it basically ‘last chance for Scottish cup’ meeting. However given the SFA line unless clubs can quickly erect flood lights for then they aren’t getting in, even bonnyrigg who seem furthest along seem unlikely to get them up that quick.(and if they do it wouldn’t change number of entrants as they are a qualifier anyway) The 6 rejected all seem to just be floodlights, there was 12 applications meant to be heard in February, with others rumoured to be heard in June.
  12. Pyramid 2019/2020

    I guess in the event highland league champions repeatedly replace lowland region clubs and north juniors/NCL then they would possibly have to move the border further south. Would take extreme circumstances and maybe them going down to 10 or so clubs before people talked about it. As for Stirling uni I could see the EoS quietly making the premier division inaccessible to reserve sides in the near future. Cups would be dealt with in the same manner as now with the Reserve side not in cups the main team enter. If the main side found themselves further relegated I suspect they will question why the run a reserve side at such a high level when the first team aren’t performing, properly withdraw the reserve side preventing the authorities from dealing with it. Same if Stranraer were to plummet down the leagues.
  13. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    Not that I recall. Think the SoS had a bone but not the EoS. Good to know these sort of conversations are taking place, helps tear apart the disinformation being spread by SJFA. It’s a pretty good deal. Unfortunately there’s a long list here of those that are ‘at it’ and spreading the lies.
  14. Non-top flight clubs in continental competition

    We played in it as a division 1 side. We did however qualify as a spl side. If my memory is correct our opponents BK Hacken (a Gothenburg side) were in the same boat.
  15. Hello from Sunny Berwick Upon Tweed

    You’ve literally been linked to the spfl regulations stating it being paid. What more do you need?
