  1. San Marino v Scotland - 24 March 2019

    David Tanner is a f*ckwit.

  3. Fort William tomorrow

    Their challenge is attracting better players - where will they come from? Shinty is a big participation sport competing for youngsters, for a start. So the talent pool is already diluted. I live and work in an area with shinty teams but it seems to be nowhere near the level of it in the Fort. So they end up casting the net far and wide, generally in the direction of the Inverness amateurs where the players usually are not good enough - and those that are move on to better clubs closer to home. Getting players to commit has been a problem in the past. My stats for Highland are a bit behind right now but by Sept 15th they had used 34 players. A couple of other teams, Rothes and Clach had used 24. Watching games at Claggan is fine as a football tourist but I'd not fancy it much every week. I'll go again but the one game I was at had barely 30 people at it and that included away supporters. I don't see things changing much any time soon.

    Well it's close - them or us!
  5. San Marino v Scotland - 24 March 2019

    Is that not what the players are doing, sort of...?
  6. San Marino v Scotland - 24 March 2019

    Not convinced that would work too well on the radio though!

    Liam McLeod on the wireless... float or drown?

    "It's been a great week apart from the result," Peter Grant tells Radio Scotland. Pleased his boy won in last minute yesterday?

  10. Junior Early Days?

    Ultimately it was the mass participation public park amateur football of the day (SAFA didn't form until 1909, though like the SJFA beforehand, Amateur leagues came first, with a heavy leaning towards academic institutions, be it univeristies or FPs) and there were numerous clubs for whom football was an offshoot of other activities. Later in forming, Pollok were the football wing of the Pollokshaws Working Lads Club. There were small clubs in both Senior and Junior leagues in the same area before things settled down early in the 20th Century.
  11. 2018/19 Challenge Cup

    I did warn you!
  12. 2018/19 Challenge Cup

    Did you watch it? They battered them. Maybe not in goals terms but physically. Hart made some superb saves 1st half.

    "There's more than one way to play football" says the Welsh comms team.
  14. 2018/19 Challenge Cup

    They bullied wee QP out of sight earlier in the cup and County don't seem to like it up them either.

    The Nomads' aerial bombardment at the ready, no doubt. Industrial.
  17. Junior football, what is the future?

    Unless opportunist clubs start jumping back across looking for the easier pathway... that's where it becomes messy.
  18. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Peter principle, anyone?
  19. Junior football, what is the future?

    The SFA head seemingly being as clueless about the lower leagues as the *average* OF fan does not help matters.
  20. Junior football, what is the future?

    Sandy. out of interest, what would you expect to be on Tom's job description as full time SJFA Secretary? The regions run themselves, do they not (in terms of their own competitions, fixtures and discipline within that)? Registrations are done online through the SFA Extranet. So that leaves administering the Scottish Junior Cup and reinstatements. What else, specific to the SJFA, needs done? Marketing? Media? Corresponding? I know he has roles on various committees but they are not always SJFA specific, and I'd imagine do not meet that regularly?
  21. Kazakhstan V Scotland

    The ones in bold no doubt...
  22. Junior football, what is the future?

    I believe this is how it might go down...
  23. Must be the first thing with British in its name that the bluenoses have hate for.
  24. Did they slither back into the Clyde adfterwards? Mutants.
