  1. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    What is it they say You are never more than 6 foot away from a rat at any time and on P&B you are never more than 2 threads away from it descending into how much money a club spends on wages!!! If Hurlford can bring in sponsorship to be able to pay more than other clubs then fair play to them. It’s up to everyone else to either try to do the same or show that money doesn’t ensure success.

    First goal today was always going to be so important for both sides. Either going to be a bit of class or a mistake. In the end it was class from Pope. From that moment forward we had to chase the game and unfortunately don’t have the players on the bench to influence it like Talbot had today. I am pretty sure everyone at Talbot knew the were in a game today after the first half - not the gulf in teams that the score line showed.
  3. West Region Fixture Update

    I assumed (maybe wrongly) he was referring to the website, which may be drop down and he selected the wrong team when publishing the fixtures, hence why he knew the correct one, just published it incorrectly. But maybe wrong.
  4. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    They are Polloks bogie team at the minute, we just can’t break them down despite having much more of the game. Well organized team, with plenty of experience in middle of park with Keenan- who is very good at ref-ing the game too, and Ryan Stevenson who very rarely wastes the ball. A nippy left winger, an excellent left back, in the LB games against Pollok this season he is the first LB who I have seen in Gary McCanns years at Pollok mark him out the game. In goal they have the most deceptive looking keeper ever. About 5ft 10 and looks like he enjoys his pizza but some shot stopper. On paper they are not the best side in the West region, probably middle of the road side who have good days and some bad, but as said seem to always give us a tough game, so don’t turn up wearing Black and White stripes !!!
  5. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    Last two ties are potentially top 4 league sides by the time those ties come around. Wouldn’t put money on any of them !
  6. Talbot just keep rolling on....

    Backlog impacts many clubs. Glenafton did the double. When Pollok were winning the league at the start of the super league introduction they were also reaching the later stages of the Scottish semifinals and 1/4s, dealing with games called off. It impacts everyone. The team that wins the league each year is usually the best in the West. It is far from true that every season Talbot have not won the league that it’s down to backlog !!! And pretty disrespectful to all the other 11 league winners in the last 16 years
  7. Talbot just keep rolling on....

    Talbot have won 5 league titles in 16 years of super league Talbot haven’t won the league for the last 2 seasons. No doubt they will get a financial benefit from this run, as they did back in 2012, however to say everyone else will struggle is factually incorrect. The league and cup may be won again by Talbot this season, but equally like the last two seasons they may not (1 out of 4) Your post makes the west league seem like it’s the professional premier league where one team does dominate all of that, junior football is slightly different and for all Talbots success and winning the most trophies, it’s doesn’t happen every season.
  8. How's the grounds looking?

    I am not disputing the weather was worse that week, I am just pointing out that games have been Called off before the Saturday morning, so why can’t that be the case this week. No way clubs who’s pitch was frozen solid on Friday was going to recover for today when temps still below zero, therefore let them call it off and clubs to be able to cancel buses etc and save some cash. Posts above that it’s the ‘rules’ it has to be Saturday, however wasn’t the case last year. Therefore if they can be broken once then why not again.
  9. How's the grounds looking?

    Thursday 1st March 2018, west of Scotland JFA called off every game that weekend 48 hours in advance. But hey, let’s wait until tomorrow....
  10. Scottish Junior Cup Final Venue?

    Is the fact the Scottish is played earlier this year not now open up the possibility of other grounds. The problem has always been the end of championship season is early May to fit in play offs. So ground recovery has started Therefore come the end of May weekend only the Premiership grounds are available, leaving pretty much an option of 1.
  11. Cambuslang Rangers And Manager Part Ways

    That was my thoughts at the game when seen the lines up pinned up, but at the game itself no one seemed to say for sure. Nothing on the website despite being updated about Gormley leaving.
  12. Cambuslang Rangers And Manager Part Ways

    Morton played yesterday for Pollok, not sure if signed yet.
  13. Cambuslang Rangers Statement

    Can they not just appoint Callum Scott as their official for every game and that’s the Police there too.... Seriously, How long are these meant to continue for? For example If Cambuslang changed their manager would these plans change as assume less need for police protection?
  14. pollok 1v0 glenafton 5.1.19

    Ref was poor most of the game. Let things go that were fouls and pulled up things for nothing. Two very evenly matched teams and it’s took penalties in the cup and now in the league to separate them.
  15. Cambuslang Rangers v Talbot

    I assume some form of medical certificates have had to be produced for this? SBA (I am sure it was them) more than aware of situations like this.
