  1. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Lost a good few bob that the club can hardly afford, personally I think the arrangements were a bit ott given the lack of anticipation of the game and hence probable crowd size. The St Roch's supporters would have gone over to the other side opposite the shed anyway and they could have come round for pies etc without any hassle. The last time they were at Gasworks was a whole different ball game with it being a promotion decider and winner takes all, this would have been much more low-key.
  2. Junior Cup Final

    The fans experience is probably one of the last things they consider, if indeed they consider it at all. The deal has been done, the money sorted, health and safety passed, police OK with it, TV planning done etc etc. They're not going to start again from scratch because the majority of fans would prefer another venue.
  3. McBookie's Odds 23rd March

    2/9 Glencairn looks very good value, don't wan't to talk my team's chances down but they should really be shorter than that imo. Beat us 6-1 at home and 9-0 in the sectional cup and although we've improved there's nothing to suggest anything other than a home win.
  4. Todays scores 9/3

    Wishaw 0 Blantrye Vics 4, Vics looked a decent team and were in control of the game thoughout, some good players especially in the defence. The Blantyre keeper had 3 or 4 outstanding saves in the second half. Wishaw weren't bad by any means but Vics just better.
  5. A lot of rain about today and overnight

    Aye can't see it going ahead at all, after the shock abandonment last week and the heavy rain all day I can see it getting called off early to save Craigmark the long trip from Ayrshire. The grass around the town is really soggy so it looks like Asda with the wife unless I can find an emegency backup fixture
  6. Referees - poor wee lambs

    Player safety is the universal get out clause for referees but can anybody ever remember a player getting injured because it was raining?
  7. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Thought it was a right good game and could have gone either way in the second half. It would have been interesting to see how the new vesion of Thistle reacted to the setback of the equaliser just before half time. As you know some of their reactions to setbacks haven't been too great this season so it would have been good to see how they coped.
  8. Royal Albert

    Another win for the Albert again today, what's going on! Good wee run they're on, too far behind to trouble the leaderboard this season but things looking good for them.
  9. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    That doesn't make any sense at all, why then were the referee and linesmen out at half time bouncing the ball on the park to see if it stuck? And why were they running about, if the ref had done his ankle he'd be hobbling not running. More than a coincidence that they were soaked and cold and like another poster said, one of the linos could have reffed it with club officials on the lines, they are meant to be qualified referees.
  10. Referees - poor wee lambs

    After the Larkhall Thistle v Girvan game being abandoned today it really is time to spare a thought for the referees and linesmen. Out there in the rain and chilly wind with no more protection than a short sleeved shirt, it is a real surprise that as many games manage to get played to the end without the SFA's finest crawling away on the flimsiest of excuses back home with their match fee tucked away in their pockets. So when it does happen and the pitch looks perfect to the untrained non-SFA eye it comes as even more of a shock and total shite for the decent sized Girvan support who made the 57.9 Googlemile, hour and a half journey for nothing. Match off, my decision, off you go, don't speak to me.
  11. McBookie's Odds 2nd March

    Are you a bookie mate? Not being flippant, genuinely interested to know. I'd say as a layman that if a team is expected to win narrowly at home they would be around 5/6 or 4/5, shorter odds than that would seem to sindicatethe bookies expect a more comfortable win. What would you say the pice for an expected 2-0 would be?
  12. McBookie's Odds 2nd March

    Thistle are in good form but 8/13 still looks very skinny to me, any win in this league is hard fought and that price would suggest a 2-0 or 3-0 which I don't see happening.
  13. McBookie's Odds 2nd March

    Not sure about Arthulie there, we've played them both and I wouldn't say thee was much between them. St Roch's home advantage, Arthurlie a bit more to play for maybe. Hard to call, not what I'd say a safe bet.
  14. Larkhall Thistle - 3rd bottom in two weeks time?

    When you played us the last time you were obviously the better team by far but the Thistle team now really is night and day from that game. Although a lot of the players are the same the new management is getting so much more out of them, some of them looked like they had their boots on the wrong feet before but now look like decent players. It will be interesting to see how long this run goes for before we play you. Not predicting a home win just yet but as you are getting less confident we are getting a bit more positive about the outcome.

    Glasgow Perthshire, probably the only German tourists to ever visit there, not one for the mainstream guidebooks
