  1. Excellent news.! Hopefully more games added in the next week or so.
  2. It’s an understatement to say I’m absolutely stoked! This is a heaven sent opportunity for the lower league clubs to attract fans of the bigger SPFL clubs, if they can’t get into see their own teams. Any news of a start date for the EoSL? I’d heard rumours of the weekend of July 17th.
  3. Was driving through Whitburn today and thought I'd see how the new ground improvements are going. Very impressive.
  4. I’d have thought they were better situated for the WoSL. Mind you, anything goes nowadays.[emoji848]
  5. So is it just a rumour that Armadale are jumping ship to the WoSL? Also where does this leave the remainder of the West Lothian teams (West Calder, Stoneyburn, etc). Will they just fold?
  6. Just heard from a friend that Livi, Whitburn and Pumphy are applying to join the EoSL next season (Livi’s old news) and that the Dale are moving to the WoSL. Not so sure about that one though.
  7. I’m praying it goes ahead with fans. Have managed to get a final ticket for the Sunday night. The night before, Pearl Jam at Hyde Park. Carlsberg don’t do ultimate weekends, but if they did.....[emoji120][emoji120][emoji120]
  8. Other than Livi Utd, is their any other clubs looking to jump ship next season to the EoSL?
  9. Can’t put up an argument with what you say, but the reality is that most of them are playing. I’d also imagine quite a few are regretting having started the season and probably wish they could bail out now. The clubs that have decided to have a hiatus, will they manage to kick start themselves a year later? Who knows. There’s many reasons why local clubs have decided to carry on and you’ve got to admire them for having a go at it. Just to add, from the time I made my first post, events have overtaken it somewhat. Who knows what’ll happen next, but one things for sure, it won’t involve fans watching at any level.
  10. Watched today’s Broxburn game from behind fence. They somehow managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Whilst at 3-0 up, it didn’t really reflect the score. However, they got caught massively in the 2nd half, with Crossgates even missing a penalty. Cracking game to watch, but Broxburn must be kicking themselves.
  11. Took in the Broxburn 4 v Crossgates 5 game today from outside the ground. Broxburn went 3-0 up just after half time and somehow managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Nothing between the teams on the day, but a cracking game to watch.
  12. I’ve got 3 sets of different heights I stick in the back of the car. Needed the taller ones today at Broxburn.
  13. To be honest, not everyone is being discreet. Think this is the reason the WoSL has tweeted recently that fans have been getting into grounds (via committee’s etc), and it’s not on. You’re spot on about “will fans show the same level of appreciation when the vaccine is rolled out”. I hope so, but you never know. It’s a crying shame that the lower leagues have been totally overlooked at the moment. All the talk is only of the SPFL. It’s as if the lower leagues didn’t exist. You guys will know as well as me that their is no problem letting fans in at all, at that level. It’s been a golden opportunity lost, to let footy fans from the SPFL see what else is out there. As it is, the game at this level is dying on its feet at the moment, and it’s only good will that’s keeping the game alive. I managed another game today from outside(with the help of my ladders). I do feel guilty that I’m watching a game free of charge, and have made a couple of donations to clubs.
  14. I’ve always asked someone from the club if they’ve any objection to me watching over/through a fence. They’ve all said they’ve no problem, and just be discreet. That and just giving yourself some room. I counted about 25 watching over a fence at Musselburgh recently.
  15. Ladders are a pre requisite for anyone wanting to see a game now. My car’s packed with various sizes on match day now.[emoji849]
