  1. Lowland league attendances 2018/19

    It was thw second highest attendance of the week with no away support ya dafty.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    Fair point but it's taken embracing senior football to get these occasions. Cove ans Ayr being the biggest games in your history now.
  3. EOSFL match attendances 2018/19

    I disagree. I was more meaning for divisions below EoS Premier next year that regional East and West could boost attendance. Even in the Superleague last year our biggest gates came from more local games. Games where both supports turn up. In an era where the game is declining this shouldn't be sniffed at.
  4. EOSFL match attendances 2018/19

    The interesting stat from the attendances shows the more local the match the higher attendance. Points towards the more regionalised leagues the better?
  5. Linlithgow Rose 18/19

    Thats fair play but for me there's a lot of effort goes into it and I think you should be rewarded as well as the club. It doesn't have to be a big amount. But a quid/couple quid per use isn't unreasonable if you haven't made the game.
  6. EoS Conference C chat 2018-19

    Next years premier EoS will basically be a return to the old John Walker League. Those who loved the old juniors will much prefer that to the Super League which was fast becoming the Tayside League.

    Getting better all the time. I've said it before but the club should create a YouTube channel and charge for highlights (maybe make available for free after two/three weeks) and put a percentage in the cameramans pocket for the trouble too. If its successful then invest in some decent kit.

    Broxburn is a tough place to go, probably the fixture I'd have highlighted as the hardest away game. Closely followed by Camelon and Jeanfield. Our squad isn't good enough to do much damage this year. We've a chance of winning conference C but if we were in any of the other two we'd be off the pace. Id say we've won all the games we'd expect to win this year in all home games and all away in the league save the ones I mentioned before. That's a good basis for a season but unfortunately apart from that we haven't won a single game that turn you into champions. I personally would like to see us stay I the EoS this year to rekindle some rapport with the support and give the remit to the management team that next season we must win the league. No excuses. Transition season so we are in a decent position, but let's be honest if we don't come in the top five it would be the worst season in our history.
  9. Bo'ness United 2018/19

    Fair enough. My point still stands though. I've not seen a team in our area being run as well and I used to run one of them!
  10. Bo'ness United 2018/19

    I guess politically the CC already have an amateur team as well but Thistle are one of the best run in the country and competing at a higher level. The difficulty for Thistle and Bo'ness here is that Thistle are a Linlithgow Bridge Club and well supported from that area. Not sure that'll translate if they become Bo'ness.
  11. Bo'ness United 2018/19

    Have the Rose missed a wee trick in bringing Thistle into the club with the u20 league and amateur team. Well run and self sufficient already. If Bo'ness to it it will only be a good thing imo.
  12. LL Relegation

    Hopefully in time it'll be two up and two down. There's a lot of stabilisation to go on in the next decade which is shown by Hawicks position in conference A. That way the LL will become a better product and that should be the collective direction not self preservation.
  13. Linlithgow Rose 18/19

    It's a great tackle tbh. But in these times refs give fouls for these. [emoji17]
  14. Lowland Trapdoorwatch 2018-19

    A couple of decent seasons and they think they are Barca. [emoji23] Once that Hibs cash dries up normal order will resume. [emoji6]
