  1. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Not at all mate just being realistic, optimistic if anything. Glensmad said he expected Bens to score a similar amount to the 9 they got against Girvan and we're in the habit of losing 9, title challengers at home to the bottom team who haven't got a single point. I'm not a player but if you offered me 3-0 I'd bite your hand off, a respectable score and realistically as much as we can hope for. And for the record, the players have done anything but throw the towel in in any of their games this season. Their attitude has been brilliant and they've kept going even in the face of repeated pumpings, the problem is ability and experience at this level, not their attitude.

    Their manage doesn't agree, said Talbot deserved their win despite the penalty claims.

    Don't think that's going to happen this time, we were getting back on track before the Kilsyth game but had a few players out. With them back and one or two additions it won't be 9 this time. Still think we'll get beaten though, hoping to keep it down to 3 or 4

    Looks like six Ayrshire teams in the quarter finals

    Thought Pope was great today, and it's not very often you'll hear a Larkhall man say that

    Hope they play Stenhousemuir in the fifth round
  7. Auchinleck Talbot v Ayr United televised

    Thought Ayr were going to run away with it in the first half but look very ordinary up front without Shankland. Great second half for Talbot and great result for them, no great love for them but the more the game wore on the more I wanted them to pull off the shock.

    14/1 is value for Talbot I'd say, don't think the'll win but they're not 14/1 shots at home against an Ayr team without Shankland or even with him for that matter.

    Was heavy rain earlier so park will be doubtful for that, cold but not predicted to go much below zero so might not freeze. I'd guess 50/50 at best.

    You must be Reynolds, or Shug.

    Agree about leaviing the past behind and concentrating on the here and now, but to say the old thinking members should move on is ridiculous. The club needs volunteers on the committee to survive and no matter what their points of view are and whether anybody agrees with them, if it wasn't for the committee and their hard work there wouldn't be a club. The above applies to nearly all junior clubs by the way.

    Did Graham Gracie get a game today, how did he do?

    There was an 88 and a 92 too
  14. St Roch's v Shotts Bon Accord

    Went to the St Roch's v Shotts game today as a neutral, good cup tie with plenty of goals, incidents and controversy. St Roch's were the better team for the early part of the game but Shotts took a hold of it half an hour in and domiated the rest of the half and most of the second half. There were penalty calls both ways, the St Roch's first looked a bit soft to say the least and soon after Shotts were denied what would also have been a soft penalty but looked a foul nonetheless. The tie hinged on a moment of extreme controversy, at 3-2 with Shotts pressing hard for an equaliser their striker broke clear and was in on goal and was clearly hauled back. The referee's view was probably obstructed as he was running in a direct line behind them but the away side linesman was right in line and refused to flag or give a decision. St Roch's broke up the park in the ensuing melee and scored. Much different atmosphere to when I've been watching Larkhall, notable absence of any flags or banners that I had just assumed were a permanent fixture at St Roch's games and no tension or the feeling that things could kick off. Maybe the early two goal lead had a part to play in that, I don't know. Well done to both teams though in producing a very enjoyable game in difficult playing conditions, never pretty but full commitment from all involved.

    With all due respect mate need to focus on the here and now, the past has gone and you need to see the situation for what it is now.
