    I thought James Ross was quietly effective for us until I think a fall out or something led to him leaving. In my humble opinion a partnership of him and Kerr Allan could have potential. My only issue would be that neither are the really dominant type I think we need but if it's possible let's give it a go. I thought Tiny was off to join Albion Rovers but if not he too would be welcomed back I'm sure.

    That's news to me and puts a different slant on things. These situations are frustrating for supporters but it must be brutal trying to manage a team with these constraints. I'll hope for better results once the holiday season is over.

    I'm beginning to wonder if our win at Wishaw wasn't actually a typo as the results since have been extremely disapointing. I know it's early but we need to be picking up points not squandering them. I noticed a lot of new faces in the team against the Shire and with a new management team it can take time to settle but we need points not excuses in the next few games.

    Great result yesterday for Yoker. I genuinely feared the worst after our midweek doing. I wasn't at the game but the team lines I saw on Twitter had a few names I don't recognise so looks like we have brought in a few new faces to freshen up the squad. Its only the beginning of a long season but let's hope we can build on this result in the coming weeks. Well done to all involved.

    Cheers guys . Hope you have a good season and that you don't miss Holm Park too much.

    Good luck to the team tomorrow in Yoker's first League game of the new season and of course to the real Club men, the gallant few supporters who travel wherever we go. We have to be better than Wednesday if only in keeping eleven on the park to give us a chance. A hard place to go first up.

    SJFA website shows Kerr Allan and Stevie Howie each had a one game ban commencing 29/07/18. So they missed Monday's game then?

    It looks like players red carded have 5 days to appeal failing which the penalties apply from the game immediately after the appeal period expires. The list of offences and penalties are on the Sjfa website. They do like a fine this governing body. A nice little earner considering the average Junior player's limited ability to haud their wheesht or control their temper.

    I don't know how the disciplinary system works regarding automatic suspensions carrying from cups to league but we will lose the culprits at some point. If we have a threadbare squad discipline has to be tight. Were any straight reds? I'd think they would attract longer bans. I'm away to look it up on the SJFA website. You say you're not concerned with results but sending offs impact on results and how you want to play and can put any game plan out the window. I just don't know anything about the new Manager, like is he a disciplinarian or does he even know where Disciplinaria is? Maybe I was wrong about Graeme George?!.......................Nope!!

    That's one I'm not sorry to have missed! By the accounts I've heard a soft pen then a goalkeeping howler made it game over early on. Sending off of the Yoker Assistant Manager, playing as a defender, might have influenced the final score but who knows. Clydebank may have the bragging rights over us for now but we can live with that. Clydebank fans enjoy the season ahead. This might be your high point!

    You're probably correct. Saving the best for the derby tonight. I hope! Anyway we'll have a better picture of what we've got after this game.

    In your profile your club is Celtic. Are you on the right thread?
  13. Yoker news today

    I'm not best placed to comment since I've not been to the games but a 3-1 win followed by a 4-0 loss is a bit up and down to say the least. But then Yoker did put the Yo in Yoyo. These games can be treated as warm ups for the League season but as there has been no news other than " a few trialists" involved in pre season training its difficult to see what direction we are heading. I had to get the result from last night from the Vale of Clyde thread so it's definitely all gone quiet, too quiet. According to a Tin Pail poster Yoker are in for a "long season" going by our performance last night so that was cheery to see too. The news on the proposed redevelopment was however welcome. Due to work and holidays I'll be missing a fair few games in the next few weeks so some news from the Club would be appreciated like signings, if any, and lineups etc.

    Surprised and pleased sums up my feelings on this development. Also well done to the Commitee for acting quickly after the resignation. I wasn't really looking forward to next season but now I am. Surely we can only improve?

    Glad a good night was had by all. Except I think a drink fuelled decision might have been taken that night to retain the services of the Toxic Brothers for next season per the Clydebank Post today. Only drink could have resulted in that. Maitland and Hynes on their way tells me the way the wind is shifting. A step too far for me. I will be considering my position for next season. Not a happy end to this awful interim.
