  1. For the last week Trampled Bet have been doing a Lockdown Football Quiz every day, 10 random questions out of 100 to a football podcaster guest, they've had Sean McDonald, OldFirmFacts & Guy Kilty from BBC Five Live & others so far (with another 10 to go) http://www.trampledbet.com https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/trampled-bats-trampled-bet/id1427389771?mt=2&ls=1 https://open.spotify.com/show/3vaCe34IiRgQDgyaTdYKEn https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL3RyYW1wbGVkYmV0LmxpYnN5bi5jb20vcnNz
  2. I’m not suggesting it, I’m requesting you actually do it ☺️ For every “well that mitre one is okay” you’ll get “that’s an embarrassment” I did it for two and a half years. Those questions I have suggested were real life questions put to me in actual job interviews by marketing managers. Just trying to say it’s not as simple as “get some student to do it”.
  3. Who though? I defy anyone to go through these and find a set of home & away kits that everyone agrees fit the job with no alterations - if you think Joma's range is limited then you're in for a shock! Plus, even if you do find one - you're signing a 3-5 year deal, maybe next year they change the colours or designs available and you're back where we are now. Here's a start for you... Joma Teamwear Adidas Teamwear Nike Teamwear Puma Teamwear Umbro Teamwear Macron Teamwear Hummel Teamwear Errea Teamwear Kappa Teamwear Stanno Teamwear Mitre Teamwear Uhlsport Teamwear Pendle Teamwear I don't THINK its the cost per unit per se, I think it's more the initial outlay & holding of stock - having to order them once & get the number right, whereas off the shelf you can be way more precise in the units you need and staggered as you need them without the risk of being left holding them. I also believe (but have no hard facts) that we sell a very small amount of kits compared to most other clubs. If it was easy & cost effective there's literally no reason not to do it every single year! But you know, if we are doing a 150th one .. I would love another go at designing the strips, if anyone is reading this with the power to make it happen again - filming footage should always cost money but I'll sure as hell design a load of kits again for nothing!
  4. Also, if the white kit vote was up to me I’d have gone with ... ... but that’s probably not helpful just now 😬
  5. Good experience would be being immersed in a professional team for a few weeks to learn the profession. This isn’t that, this is taking advantage of someone’s lack of experience to get them to do something for you - that you’re then going to ask £15 a head for. I can promise you that filming lower league Scottish football off your own back does not do anything good for your career prospects 🤣 it opens you to questions of - if you’ll do it for free why should we pay you & if you were any good they would have paid to keep you. Just like we do with players, I’m not suggesting a full media truck of crew is required, but just like we do with players I wouldn’t want to pay £15 a match to see people that had been rounded up at the local park to play free to get experience of playing in a real team. we’re not a charity, if a media product is required that can generate a proper income then we should be spending the proper level of money out to get the best job done we can at the price we want to sell it at.
  6. Firstly, the infrastructure in the stadium would need a fairly large upgrade including a hardwire up to the back of the stand. there isn’t really a great deal of room up there either when you factor in the camera + tripod. For charging people a full admission you can’t really get away with missing any of the action. Two or three seats removed from the back two rows might be required. you need someone specifically on putting up graphics, someone just watching the game to tell them what to put up (both out of earshot of the camera if you’re taking the sound source from there or you also need to have someone monitoring the sound of it’s being done externally. If you want the full price of a match ticket do you also need more than one camera? You need a camera person for each one and an editor/director too. My heart sinks when I see people say “just link up with a college”. We’re supposed to be a semi-professional outfit; not a bunch of amateurs. Asking a bunch of kids to do it with no one in charge and no prospect of it becoming any sort of long term thing because we’ll just wheel in the next lot of free kids is garbage. It’s not great experience because it gives you zero insight into working in any real life situation, it’s absolutely not great for your CV & will be treated with suspicion why you did it all for nothing when you could have gone out and made your own short film, something creative or done something where you could earn. If it can’t generate enough money to have it done properly and fairly it’s just not viable. I was at a meeting in Hampden when the SFL suggested to the clubs that “asking your local high schools” was a great way of getting footage done cheap for highlights packages. It’s embarrassing. on top of all that I heard that Raith TV very quickly appeared for free on these tv boxes so you could get access to all the streams freely, there are people out there who will know how to access them in ways we don’t so you need fairly robust (expensive?) security in place too.
  7. Sure, we could have Nike, Hummel, Adidas, errea, puma, Umbro, mitre, take your pick, we’d still be getting a choice of yellow & black. I searched EVERYWHERE & I could only find one amber jersey in the whole of the teamwear world (Macron & it was Edinburgh City’s away top this season). We sell hardly any replica kits, if there were hundreds of people (or even one hundred) and it generated money (like Airdrie) then why wouldn’t the club be doing it? it’s not even the expense per jersey of making them, it’s that you have to make them all in one go, you need to get that number exactly right or you’re left holding them, selling them off at cost or running out. Badging up off the shelf stuff takes all that risk away at a time when every penny needs to be absolutely scrutinised. I’m not the worlds biggest fan of yellow either (though I am a fan of gold & black over white!) but in my mind there’s absolutely no question that our club can’t afford to take the risk on it just now.
  8. It’s easy to say you want white, it’s much harder to come up with a solution that works! Which one of the white Joma kits do you want? Anything bespoke comes with a minimum order that’s way above what we sell. We’re also staring down the barrel of a situation where next season might be 18 games, if it happens, if we make it through. We’ll be in a deep, deep recession and anywhere up to a third of us will become long term unemployed. Any risk in creating something bespoke, ordering hundreds in one go in the hope it sells isn’t realistic or sensible.
  9. Strip vote: oops! Had no idea this was coming (Obviously) - sorry if I ruined anything with my incredible timing 😬 picked option 1, would have chosen something else from the 9 to be honest. also just want to add, remember that picking kits is really hard & totally thankless! The economics just don’t work in our favour for getting bespoke stuff & there really isn’t anyone doing any off the shelf stuff in more suitable colours (trust me, I’ve looked!) so it’s not as simple as just saying it’s not the right colour!
  10. Sacrilege! East Fife changed to gold & black stripes to look like us! anyway, here’s all the options from the latest Joma teamwear. When was the last time we kept a kit for two seasons?
  11. “The latest in our series of interviews with Scottish footballers who play outside of the UK. Coming through Stenhousemuir, Celtic and winning silverware with Glasgow City before moving to play professionally in Sweden with Eskilstuna United and currently FC Rosengard. We talk to Fiona about her early career, the influences and injuries along the way and being part of the first Scotland squad to play at a World Cup in over 20 years.” Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-trampled-bet-football-betting-podcast/id1427389771#episodeGuid=ba5f03cc-4438-49b3-8c85-4e71b0100daa Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/5Efd20HMNPNuAPOOLBACPD?si=-2KtJLRwRwWfgvxhCqJGBQ Pocket Casts: https://pca.st/episode/fcd56039-b62c-4ef1-8071-ef7d25da810b Website: https://trampledbet.libsyn.com/fiona-brown-scots-abroad
  12. I do a podcast called Trampled Bat. In order to prevent it descending into football chat constantly one of the guys did an off shoot called Trampled Bet where they talk about predictions for that week. They also go over Scottish players playing outside the UK. They have an offshoot if that now interviewing players that do or have played abroad. It’s meant to be a bit more serious digging into the decisions & experiences of playing in other countries. The first one came out the other day with Ziggy Gordon. Hopefully it’ll be up some of your audio streets 🙂 Spotify Apple Podcast Stitcher
  13. I have a dusty memory of a rainy Tuesday night against Elgin that was 150 or so in 2007/8 ish
