  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    The early kick offs because of no lights are also a pain in the backside.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    The Highland League could lose 4 or 5 members (depending on the SPFL2 playoff result). HL territory has 2 licensed clubs outside the HL. Banks O'Dee may be willing to step up but Golspie Sutherland are in no position to do so. To even get to 16 the HL may be forced to take on the colts of ICT & Ross County. Even if the feeders to the HL get set in place the probability of any clubs getting entry level by March 31st seems very low. Highland having a smaller division would help with selling of a national non-league cup. Right now they just don't have enough saturdays but a few less teams could have that potential benefit.

    This could jolt things along a little up north - the HFL losing 4 good teams would seriously weaken it.
  4. Standard of officiating

    To be fair, Calum Scott was on the senior list in 2013-14 (at Cat 3 Developing). Now in his 6th year reffing on the Senior list, I wouldn't say he was being fast-tracked to Cat 1.

    The ground requirements are not strict at all. They are only strict to clubs that have a pitch, not a ground.
  6. A few Sam Cosgrove stats... As many red cards as goals for Aberdeen. Both reds vs. Old Firm.
  7. Considering his game is to get stuck in (a bit like the other big blond laddie IcInnes loved but the refs didn't) , what use is he on a yellow card anyway though? He'd (and we'd) have been better off by being hooked.
  8. I think in general terms you have to trust the management though. Shankland's attitude at Aberdeen in terms of being in the shape required to play full-time football wasn't where it needs to be - any player coming in at his age without any grounding in full-time football ethos will have that particular bridge to cross. He's on record as saying it wasn't right. We had him out on loan four times across his 4 year contract - it's not as if he came in and got punted (permanently) quickly. In his final year out on loan he did not score that many goals at his present level - none with St Mirren and 4 for Morton from a combined 33 games. 17 league games for the Dons in his 2nd year at Pittodrie and no goals. In terms of Rose, I remember he got one start live on the telly v St Johnstone but like Shankland, he was not moved on prematurely. He came through the Aberdeen youth system and got 5 seasons at the club. Harvie got 4 years and proved his mettle in at Championship level with his year at Dumbarton. Last season was his chance to 'do a McKenna' but he sat on the bench for a spell then got injured. Considine being cemented in at left back and barely missing a game would also have limited his chances. Ironically, had he signed for this year there may have been no need to get Lowe in and he'd have got a chance when Considine did pick up an injury in the semi. "Them's the breaks", as they say.

    You'll have gone to sleep with the sound of "I TELL YE WHIT!!" echoing round and round your head, no?
  10. Not a former Aberdeen player. It was Jonny Crawford that played for us.

    It's a bit of a sporting subculture too. People who watch Junior football may be so hardcore they will not entertain watching a game at any other level. Players that leave for Senior football may be viewed as grade traitors.

    And the thing that distinguishes it further from the amateur game is that its players are registered on SFA Non Recreational forms, usually Non Contract and Amateur.
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    Indeed, at this stage of the season, LL have played roughly 13/14 out of 28 while in West Premiership, most teams are up to the 13-15 mark /30, the odd exception due to Junior Cup replays (Pollok) or Scottish Cup runs (Talbot/Beith). The only real issue is the Talbot example sees them 7 behind a couple of teams already - the price of success though.
  14. The Spartans 2018-19

    Just being black and white about it, they won the league last season but at one game short of the midway mark of this season, they're already 7pts behind the present leaders so look highly unlikely to repeat that.
