    Folk must think you are on their committee of their team when you seem to know all their budgets or business[emoji12]
  2. Todays scores 22/9

    Firstly you don't know who is talking to me from your side and more importantly are they talking shite about the £12k contract that will need to be fulfilled if and when you part company with McGinty, yes or no? As for being more interested in your mob than my team, don't talk pish. You lot are hated by more than us and trust me they are all laughing at you. We don't have any great expectations for our team but all you Billy big baws just canny handle the fact that you really are shite and all your bluster disny hide it. T

    PS to my last post, you need to stop playing the paupers card on here as it's nonsense. You finished last season strongly, and quite deserved your promotion. You targeted premier level players to complement the core of last season's squad you wanted to keep and had the money to do that. The old debt is being dealt with separately to that spend. Truth is you have flattered to deceive this season and have failed to meet the fans expectations. I personally thought you would do better. T

    Sorry .Stu, but this was from one of your people, who is very reliable, been actively involved in the club and particularly vocal at the time the manager's financial package was agreed. The guy has integrity but won't name him on here. T

    They can't be that stuck for money if it costs them £12k to get shot of McGinty.

  9. Referees

    I think refs unfortunately in the main take the approach that it's all about them and ignore their assistants. This season I have seen them overrule throw in decisions where the assistant has had a clear view of who had the final touch before the ball went out of play. However I have also heard assistants state they have been instructed before hand just to deal with throw ins and offsides , and to ignore everything else. Which again is poor. I would also say that as a fan who didn't play at a serious level due to limited ability, I am however familiar with the laws of the game and like most supporters want to see consistency applied to all decision making. Unfortunately our frustrations manifest themselves at the regular inconsistencies applied on a weekly basis and this is the current experience at SPFL recently which is also well documented. And finally love them or loathe them we can't have a game without them. T

    Agree with GOTW and Moomintroll. Players and coaches have been moaning for years that the refs have took all contact out the sport but the truth is it was them. I continue to shout every week that not every coming together of players is a foul and not every foul should result in a card. However the reaction of players and management leaves a lot to be desired. I include my team in that comment as well. The days of a good "old fashioned junior" game of football are a rarity now

    Aye might have been but only because they were likely on 2/3 year contracts and Troon couldn't afford to get rid[emoji6]
  12. Darvel Juniors 2018/19

    Agreed DL but when Chris was in ADL with the Dodgers, his budget was at least 3 to 4 times that of his competition at that level. Knowing Chris personally, having a good budget to refurbish your underperforming team, would have been one of his first demands. Don't take that comment as a negative as I believe he will have asperattions of take you to top league at first time of asking. T
  13. Darvel Juniors 2018/19

    Don't know about that Ross.[emoji54] His first season after Ross Findlay got bumped his budget at that time was £25k to get them out the ADL. Which he did at the first attempt, went unbeaten but that should have been expected. The next few seasons money was no object and we all know how that panned out.

  15. Darvel Juniors 2018/19

    Chris has good experience however, taking Ardeer to last eight of Scottish being the exception, everything else has been with significant financial backing, which might suit Darvel given the cash that they have already been rumoured to have laid out for this season.
