  1. Based on Saturday's shift at Lossie, Keith are worse than Fort. Hilariously bad.
  2. Who wants them finished in April? The SHFL will be finished in April to provide a winner to meet the Lowland League/League Two sides for the Pyramid Playoff. One would think it a good idea for whoever finishes bottom not to have to sit on their hands for a few weeks waiting for clubs in tier below to get their seasons finished ahead of the Tier 5/6 playoff, although experience suggests it'll probably be the Tier 6 clubs waiting on the SHFL getting their shit together.
  3. The Midlands League will play 36, meaning a late finish like the SHFL, but I see they're already 14 games in amongst the clubs at the top, so they're ploughing through the games.
  4. That was what was planned ahead of the season. Dunno how many games the NCL, Midland and Superleague play, but at a guess they could all be finished - the NCL certainly could - and have a playoff winner ready to meet SHFL18 come late-April.
  5. FITBA NORTH ALL-IN NON-LEAGUE CUP FIRST ROUND RESULTS - FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd – SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th, 2021 COMPLETED TIES… BSC Glasgow 2-6 Glasgow City (SWPL) Glenafton Athletic 3-0 Spartans (SWPL) Burghead Thistle 0-2 Aberdeen (SWPL) Hibernian (SWPL) 3-1 Cruden Bay Hearts (SWPL) 1-4 Stonehaven Glasgow United 1-2 Hamilton Academicals (SWPL) Dalry Thistle 1-3 Mid-Annandale St Roch's 3-5 Bellshill Athletic Kirkintilloch Rob Roy 4-0 Creetown East Kilbride Thistle 2-0 Kinnoull GOING TO A SECOND AND FINAL REPLAY… Fauldhouse United 0-0 Berwick Rangers INCOMPLETE TIES… Deveronvale 0-X Rangers (SWPL) Partick Thistle (SWPL) X-4 Celtic (SWPL) Hopefully that'll be us done this coming weekend and we can move onto the Second Round.
  6. Supposed to be a group of three with all playing each other home and away, with the group winner playing SHFL18 home and away for a place in the SHFL the following season.
  7. The first time I downloaded thon, the content was about 80% Aberdeen - even thought they'd not played a game that week - followed by them reading out the fixtures for the remaining games, with whoever was the third wheel dismissing every game as 'well that'll be tough but you'd fancy Formartine to edge out Fort William' or some such bollix. The Press and Journal need to boot their coverage of the SHFL into gear. They're doing lots of bits but none of it seems joined up.
  8. Look at you poor b*****ds, having to deal with mrman2011. You poor b*****ds.
  9. More likely going to go to my scratcher and then get back up for it. Too many failed attempt to stay up for games last season ended in my only seeing the third quarter, so we'll try something different this season.
  10. In defence of the population, I think that's everyone in Fort William had a shot on the committee now. IIRC, the new secretary is onto her second shift in the job.
  11.

There's a dirty rumour circulating that this event could actually come to pass next season.
  12. By some margin the worst of some very bad shouts from that lot. Especially when you consider the likes of grounds mentioned below... http://twitter.com/JoaquimCampa/status/1411346406497992708
  13. We were told to lose weight ahead of starting IVF in order to give it the best of chances, and while dropping a bit of beef improved the hotness of my hot sauce, it always felt like a bit of a ruse when everyone knows fat b*****ds can get pregnant. Also we're well aware we could walk in with cash in hand and pay for treatment regardless of our size, and like I said, we managed to briefly become pregnant naturally while roughly the size we were when we started. So f**k knows what's up with that. If it wasn't for COVID, the holidays would already be booked.
  14. The only positive I can give you is that 1.5 years isn't that long. The wife and I have been plodding through IVF for five and a bit years now (admittedly on and off) with little success and plenty disappointment, and actually managed to get things going ourselves this month despite the IVF clinic telling us that was all but impossible without their help, only for that to fail too.
  15. Was sat in uni feeling like shite. Had been at the doctors early in the day and went into uni on the way home to tell someone I'd not be bothering with it for the week. Stopped briefly in the computer room ( ) and read on the then-fledgling BBC News website about a plane that had hit the World Trade Center. I think it was made out to be a biplane or something small, but as my insides were trying to get out of me I decided this would maybe be worth seeing on TV so abandoned uni for the day (essentially, the week) and went back to the flat, which was only a short walk. Got in to find the two flatmates sat watching the BBC News just as the second plane appeared in the sky. Think there's still a VHS copy of the days events somewhere in the house. Don't think I actually moved much for the next three days, other than to head out for food occasionally. Distinctly remember the Question Time episode that was on in the days that followed when the American ambassador got a fucking roasting from the audience, along the lines of 'you've have had this coming for a while' and thinking it most unlike the show to let that happen.
  16. Telling two idle teams on a Tuesday they're playing on a Saturday - when one knew they'd be idle and the other has four days notice - shouldn't be beyond us, and given Fort are already falling behind we should be ready for this kind of thing. You'll notice, however, that Brora's postponed game tomorrow v Lossie coincided with a fucking Scotland qualifier, suggesting we're not as forward thinking as all that.
  17. Maybe nowadays we'll see some movement from those in charge and get decisions like that made promptly. My breath is not for holding tho.
  18. Brora's North Cup tie with Lossie tomorrow is off due to positive Covid tests in the Brora squad. This will almost certainly knacker Brora's game on the weekend, which was supposed to be at Brechin.
  19. That would mean fishermen admitting they were wrong.
  20. Cheers. Brechin's website was giving them numbers but one has overlapped with Gregor Jordan so now I don't know what the f**k is going on.
  21. Was that his first game as trialist? Which number was he sporting? Many thanks.
