  1. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Here's my offering... reduce the top tiers to 3 pro leagues by pulling SPFL2 into the regional set-up and split the LL East & West (3 leagues of 16) at T4. Note that the West Premier could sit at tier 5 with the SoS at tier 6, in time. And the Dundee clubs would form the EoS / Juniors North feeder into the EoS Premier unless they want to filter into the North Region and HL. There should be more focus on best v best at the top levels of the pyramid, and at the lower end there's a top regional division to aspire to at Tier 4.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    Pumpherston and Fauldhouse want to play in that? Won't take long before it feels like punishment for gaining promotion. At least 8 buses and only 11 home fixtures with barely any visiting supporters coming the other way. Would be better for them to be in the South League and split the 'Super' and North into 2 leagues - regional or Prem & 1st. Or do what the EoS have done and go for 2 north conferences to be split the following season for possible Pyramid entry as a regional association.
  3. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    Like Father Ted explaining to Dougal that the cows in the field are small because they're far away...
  4. Musselburgh Athletic 2017/18

    Doubt the landlord will see it that way.
  5. Junior football, what is the future?

    12 would be better than 13 because that way everyone is playing each week... with Fauldhouse added it could go to 14-14-12

    Malcolm Gladwell, author of "the tipping point" and other magnificent books and podcasts says: "I feel I change my mind all the time. And I sort of feel that's your responsibility as a person, as a human being - to constantly be updating your positions on as many things as possible. And if you don't contradict yourself on a regular basis, then you're not thinking". ...A wee thought for the day...

    Spare a thought for the welfare of his keyboard and monitor, which are probably lying in bits in his garden this morning having bounced off every wall in the house last night. The guy was absolutely SEETHING.

    Or 48... 3x16? One way or another it's a great problem to have, looking forward to seeing how it all takes shape!
  9. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    40 would be a good number to work with... 2018/19 = 3 x T6 conferences of 14/14/12 Then 2019/20 = T6 Premier League of 16 teams and 2 x T7 conferences of 12/12... plus any newcomers

    Penicuik have also been accepted to EoS with Newtongrange ready to join - 5 SL clubs are away, plus Kelty of course.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    If Nitten and Lithgae quit in time they'd be as well leaving the remaining 12 in a West Lothian league and split off from the Tayside, Perth and Fife Juniors.

    Tell that to Clyde, do they still owe you a bag of footballs for the goalie you sold?
  13. Linlithgow Rose 2017-18

    ...and the lack of midweek league games earlier in the season under floodlights... ridiculous.
  14. Junior football, what is the future?

    An EGM away from 5. Maybe

    Hawick, Preston, Coldstream, Burntisland are licensed. LTHV nearly there? Blackburn, Dalkeith and Haddington applications are in progress. Others will surely follow soon. Bonnyrigg, Dunbar and Easthouses grounds are close to compliance - Newtongrange also, if they join. Tynecastle too with their move to Meggetland. I'm sure all the clubs will have plans - it's a positive move. East Juniors have 1 licensed club, for now.
