  1. Talbot just keep rolling on....

    A wee bit smug. In as much as Talbot as a club are a machine and to be respected, the brand of football that they play is often efficient rather than exciting. Talbot just know how to get results.
  2. Todays scores 19/1

    The wee lino on the Church Street side was miles out of his depth. The goal was so far offside that the referee should have taken control of the situation. Embarrassing. As it was, Medda played as if their lives depended on ir, Buffs played as if they didn't want to be there.

    I want to stay at Abbey Park, but with the dangerous condition of the changing rooms and with no alternative proposal to consider, it would seem that there is no real choice to be made.
  4. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    More mud slinging guys. Less than helpful on a public forum.

    Aye, the verbal abuse of officials is never far away. It's in Buffs DNA at the moment from the bench to the players. Time for Buffs to address this issue and rise above the standard of officials. All of this in a week where we have more important matters to deal with.
  6. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    It was unacceptable, I agree. The officials were of a poor standard, but even so, got to keep a bit of composure and rise above it. For what it's worth, I didn't think Boylan's first booking was worthy. Why would any player dive in that position? The tackle and retaliation for the second booking I couldn't see from my position. I was told that Bankies second goal was well offside, some Bankies fans confirmed, but that doesn't excuse the madness that followed.

    The pitch was dreadful to be fair. Was little football played on it. Before the madness there was little in the game. Buffs wanted one touch too many, Clydebank relied upon mistakes and breaking with pace. No doubt Clydebank deserved to win the game, but the final score didn't reflect how even the first hour was. I was going to say we'll see you again next season, but that's not likely is it?

    No idea what you are on about comrade. I don't use the supporters bus.

    The standard of officials in the junior game is poor as witnessed at Maryhill today, however, the attitude and behaviour of our manager and players today left a lot to be desired. We've got to keep our composure when we have to, that wasn't acceptable today.

    Not really Abbey park requires a new sewage drain plus a new electric supply into the ground before dressing rooms are build then a new terracings to meet sfa safety standards scottish football is changing over the next few seasons your ability isn't what teams are going to be judged by it's your condition of the ground you play at Abbey park is not up to basic sfa standard so things need done now not next year or in 5 years time if buffs want to exist for any length a move to ksc is required why spend years playing in mediocre leagues with a mediocre ground when we can move a short distant in the town to stay a major strength in what will be a semi pro system as in 5 years time even shorter juniors won't even be known. There's nothing that I can add to this that I haven't already. I'll just highlight the point about SFA standards. It depends upon the level of ambition of the club. There's plenty of junior grounds that'll not conform in one aspect or another. There's little money in the junior game to comply with SFA standards. There's a question of realism too. As a club, ground issues aside, where do we see ourselves in the grand scheme of things? We are a yoyo club historically after all ...

    Fair enough Colin, I completely understand where you are coming from. I think the vote will return a decision to move. But if it doesn't, surely the existing committee would have been best served to stay in place to the end of the season to keep the club going. I'm not aware that there is anybody waiting in the wings to take over. So, I take it that the current committee wouldn't allow the club to die at an EGM?
  12. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    Good post Colin. All I've tried to do on here is establish a debate and try not to finger point, because it's important that the debate happens for obvious reasons. The 'remainer' tag and negativity surrounding it is ridiculous, as you say all Buffs fans are remainers, but should also be realistic in the challenges facing the club. One thing I will be critical of is the need for an EGM and stand down of the current committee if the vote is to stay. Given the hard work you guys have put in so far, this seems somewhat petulant. I also understand the need for fresh input and ideas, but committees at every club will say the same, this is always required. The whole debate has suffered due to the lack of an alternative proposal to consider. Given the importance of the situation, thats surely disappointing for all Buffs fans? Any way, I made my decision some time ago. Hoping for continued success for our club. Always a rollercoaster ride following the Buffs. Onwards and upwards COYB

    Buffs future is more certain at ksc than it is at Abbey park in my thoughts buffs won't last to end of this year . Playing devils advocate, but if the changing rooms could be secured at Abbey Park, would you say the same?
  14. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    It would seem that there is no alternative. Any move to KSC has potential, but no guarantee that it'll secure the long term future of the club. I'm not shit stirring by saying that, it's just a plain fact. KSC, because of the changing rooms, will secure the short term future of the club. Everything else is just speculative based upon perceived investment, savings and a lot of hard work.
  15. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    Essentially it's all about the changing rooms. That's the immediate threat.
