  1. Friendly opposition required

    4th August is Saturday
  2. If Aberdeen want Christie permanently then it is going to cost them around 400k at least to get him. They would need to buy out the last year in his contract along with paying celtic a fee. He is on around 6k a week and would drop to around 3k at Aberdeen so it would cost around 156k to pay him his final year of his celtic contract. Aberdeen would then need to pay around 250k to Celtic for him I would imagine if not more as I am sure some English championship clubs wouldn't hesitate to tie him up on a deal. It is the same for hibs with scott allan as he is apparently on around 8k a week for another year when hibs can realistically only pay him around 2.5k.
  3. Cambuslang Rangers 2018-19

    There seems to be some ill feeling between some folk at both clubs going by social media and newspaper interviews. I just think its a shame on a boy whos signed as an amateur but has the opportunity for some extra cash and a crack at the big league. The valuation of the player in my opinion is ridiculous. Being within your rights of something and being morally right are two different things. As you said cambuslang have moved on now which is a real shame for the player in question.

    Cheers for clarifying. I didn't realise they couldn't sign for another junior club.

    Surely if he is only at Ek Thistle then he will be signed on an amateur contract and can request to be released by himself. Thistle asking for 2k for a player signed on amateur terms getting no money is an absolute joke.

    Saw a bit of a spat on twitter between and EK Thistle board member and the Camby chairman. Do we know who the player is they are trying to get off Thistle?
  7. Peru v Scotland - Wed 30th May 2018

    I called it yesterday with Archer. The lad is still young and has had some very good games this season but on the big occasions he has made some terrible mistakes and the same happened last night. I can only think that McLaughlin will play the next game. Peru are a team going to a world cup with a full team out last night and are unbeaten in 11 games which included game against Colombia, Uruguay and Argentina. We had numerous debutants and a pretty unbalanced team in all honesty due to call offs. There is absolutely no way we can be judging McLeish based on these friendlies that he himself wouldn't have wanted had he been in charge earlier. The good thing about these games is that we are seeing what players are capable of making the step up and who isn't. For me Gordon, Tierney, Robertson, Armstrong, Forrest and Griffiths all start if fit. You then have the likes of Fraser, Ritchie, Cairney, Snodgrass, McArthur all playing at a good level. We were down to some of our 4th and 5th choices in certain positions last night and for a country our size that is always going to be tough.
  8. Peru v Scotland - Wed 30th May 2018

    He's said that nobody will start both games. Not sure how possible that is with the squad so thin but apparently due to the altitude it will be very difficult for any player to play both games.

    Danny Gibson - Goldenhill Kieran Christie - UB Utd Gary Shields - Eastfield Harry Clark - Possil YM??? Not sure who else but those 4 are top amateur footballers.

    Some excellent signings from Colville. Big squad for the start of next season.
  11. Players coming through

    All nowhere near the level required to play for Scotland.
  12. Peru v Scotland - Wed 30th May 2018

    I follow Milwall and Archer is pretty solid however he is prone to some big errors. He cost us a good few points towards the end of the season with some Karius like errors. Hopefully see him get his debut but I think it will be McLaughlin in this first game who for me is a better keeper. Two different 11's to play in these matches so hard to know how he will set up.

    Do you get cash prize money depending on the round you make?

    Congratulations to Shortlees. Do you still get in the proper Scottish Cup through winning the amateur cup? If so do you get some sort of prize money as by all accounts from reading above this could go a long way to helping the community.
  15. Moving Leagues Next Season

    GGPL have lost Third Lanark and Newton Vale to the Central.
