  1. As usual, a thread descends into stupidity with ignorant and nonsensical comments.
  2. What pish. Gentlemen’s agreements are often reached between player and club which are mutually beneficial for both parties. If a situation like covid has came up I’m sure honourable players and clubs will have reached an accord.
  3. Photos of the stands that’ve been ordered?
  4. I’ll stick my neck out and say it’s no closer than when the idea was first conceived.
  5. It has to be. You can’t attract the manager of John M’s calibre without their being substantial financial resources. This is being further evidenced by the signings that have been announced. I don’t see how it’s possible to be self sustainable before the senior men’s team have even kicked a ball. You don’t know what all of your playing costs are going to be for a start.
  6. Here here. A ground lasts forever. Players often will leave when a bigger carrot is dangled.
  7. That is simply amazing. Belshill should put the euro millions on!
  8. Should’ve been done many, many years ago.
  9. It doesn’t give great strength to an argument to compare to Italy. We’re in Scotland and we’re concerned for the Scottish game. Ground sharing should be a temporary solution to the issue, not the de facto norm. It is not as simple as having one team play away and the other at home the following week. To infer that it is that simple is quite simply laughable.
  10. The release of fixtures is a challenging scenario. If you take into consideration how many teams ground shared in the old west juniors, it surely must be far higher than that of any comparable Sos, LL, HL & Eos leagues. Perhaps this will be a key consideration for how the 4 new divisions are formed. However, within one season that could all be up in the air and end up with a top division with at least 3 clubs ground sharing as they have no ground of their own, which I find completely unacceptable and ought to be mandated by the new league as an issue which must be addressed.
  11. What does the constitution state?
  12. Guys talking tosh. Lanark has a great park, it’s a shame in winter that the stand side doesn’t get much sun and freezes the park off easily.
  13. If you are looking to maximise the junior game then there is no feasible argument to not alter the kick off times to 1500.
  14. I think it’s significantly more than that. For example last season Gartcairn signed a player and he was on £95pw, gives you an insight into their firepower. Plus, Shotts and Blantyre were paying nicely too.
  15. You persist in calling him a “redneck”, which is a derogatory term, no one else one here has. Get off your soap box and move on. You’re in no position to be demeaning the man for his behaviour when yours is, quite frankly, just as bad.
  16. Move on pal. It’s done and Scott is gone.
  17. The best post on this thread by a country mile. Scott had to go, that was very clear. His language was unbecoming of a Secretary of The SJFA West Region & it is further disappointing as he is an ex policeman, who ought to know better. To the little bitchy delegates who gave the story to the papers; well done. Well done for bringing unnecessary attention to this matter which covers the region, it’s clubs and various individuals in absolute ****. Maybe you want to resign as well as Scott and go join an OAPs tea party where you can spread as much gossip as you like without there being consequences for football clubs.
  18. That’s fucking embarrassing and it’s under the “official” club name.
  19. You’re very negative. Any Friday night junior game I’ve been to has seen far higher crowds, you’re not competing against senior teams or even other juniors so you draw in from a far larger pool of supporters. Contrary to what you say this brings in more kids and brings an even greater connect to the community. Also, gives the boys a Saturday and Sunday off which is nice for them every now and again.
