  1. Anyone venturing to the Caledonian Braves game on Saturday?
  2. https://www.facebook.com/982167901927831/posts/pfbid02Sdkhx8F3EMkaW45Ka7WAwxuUD6k7eVLyFiWwi5dvawsSt2w37P265MN9wQcth77Tl/?sfnsn=scwspmo Looks like Meadowbank is a goer then
  3. Slightly of topic from the last few posts, is there going to be a fans bar at New Douglas park or is there a pub nearby that most home fans will be going to?
  4. As someone on twitter mentioned, one of the largest things that has gone without comment throughout this whole debacle, is the ridiculous price increaces for the coming season. £18 an adult and £5 for an under 12 year old is ludicrous, especially when you consider clubs like Clyde are doing £5 for the whole season for under 12s. We used to be an affordable alternative for families in the city but these prices will drive many away.
  5. I genuinely don't think the owner really cares to be honest. Jim's update was very, very Corporate heavy, which shows where the board/ownerships priority lies. Our core support, although steadily growing, is probably too small to make any impact on their thinking.
  6. If the name had to change, the obvious alternative for me is City of Edinburgh FC Retains the City name and retains the Edinburgh 'Brand' that the club are so keen on. I'm 100% convinced if this name had been pitched to the fans in advance most would have accepted it as a viable alternative. A quick scan on Companies House tells me there is no football club Registered in this name either.
  7. Have given myself time and just re-watched the update for clarity. My thoughts - given that the club have admitted there is no legal challenge at this point from the social club, the name change did not need to happen as quickly and without consultation with the support. In my view this has been a long time abition of the owner to re-brand the club to his preference. The name FC Edinburgh, I am reliably informed, was mentioned in club marking brochure's as early as 2019 although I admit I personally haven't seen these. The running down of the social media and website over the last season also points me towards this conclusion. - why completely change the badge, to something far worse, with no mention of the team name on it? Why not keep the existing badge and just update the name? - the Meadowbank situation is an utter omni-shambles. If the 2nd stand is not given the go ahead, the viability of staying there is completly gone. Even going in as it presently stands hold no appeal whatsoever for watching football. - £18 to watch football at those facilities is farcical, along whith the decision to do away with free entry for under 12s. Thats a £4 a game price rise when people have less desposible income in thier pocket than at any stage for 40 years. - the new strips are smart - I'm undecided what I will do this coming season
  8. According to the chairman on the update, they are trying to arrange standing around the pitch tontake the capacity to 1200.
  9. Rumour on this side of the country is that Harthill are looking to move to the EOS set up.
  10. Is it 2 up, 2 down from each league next season?
  11. Looking at the plans, it really shouldn't take long to put the stand up. Permission had been granted so it's a case of materials and manpower. If it was started next week it could easily be completed by August. All depends on how far City are down the line with the process of appointing someone to do the job. As for the rest of the Stadium/complex, i'm led to believe the keys were handed to the council a couple of weeks ago, and they are now running through there systems to check things. Will definitely be open by the start of the season.
  12. More nervous now that we are 2-0 up, than I was before the game on Tuesday. Annan will no doubt throw everything but the kitchen sink at us early doors but hopefully we can hold firm like we did in the 2nd leg at Dumbarton. The system we play since Maybury has come in also give me confidence that we can nick a goal, as it certainly plays to our attacking players strenghts.
  13. Should be Meadowbank, however untill the new stand on the other side is built, the capacity will be capped at 500. I'd imagine if we are promoted there will be a mad rush to get it done.
  14. Agreed. Definitely seen alot more reaction on Social Media regarding travelling to Annan on Friday.
