  1. Would be interesting, deliberately leaving before he would inevitably break Schumacher's record of 7 titles.
  2. Aside from the fact that 9-10 team leagues are a stupid idea when you can have 14/15 instead, I like how you've put Easthouses and Ormiston in the North league.
  3. Where does it mention anything about the defender having the ball under control? Rodri challenged him after Mings deliberately played the ball, which basically resets the offside. "A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent who deliberately plays the ball ... is not considered to have gained an advantage..." If Rodri had stood still in his offside position and Mings went to clear the ball but sliced it behind him, it would be onside as it that's a deliberate play by the defender. So not sure why a defender taking the time to chest the ball down before being challenged would be any different.
  4. Well if you say so it obviously must be. Maybe you can tell us which part of the offside law makes it an offside offence? A player in an offside position at the moment the ball is played or touched* by a team-mate is only penalised on becoming involved in active play by: interfering with play by playing or touching a ball passed or touched by a team-mate or ❌ interfering with an opponent by: preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or ❌ challenging an opponent for the ball or ❌ clearly attempting to play a ball which is close when this action impacts on an opponent or ❌ making an obvious action which clearly impacts on the ability of an opponent to play the ball ❌ or gaining an advantage by playing the ball or interfering with an opponent when it has: rebounded or been deflected off the goalpost, crossbar, match official or an opponent ❌ A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent who deliberately plays the ball, including by deliberate handball, is not considered to have gained an advantage, unless it was a deliberate save by any opponent. ❌
  5. No he doesn't, he waits until it's chested down. The Man City player was in an offside position when the ball was played, but did not do anything to prevent the Villa player challenging or playing the ball so it meets none of the criteria for an offside offence.
  6. I thought a BIOS password was set at the hardware level - from memory (years since I set one) it appears before anything is loaded from the boot menu so you can't just bypass it by changing the HDD or putting in a boot CD? If you can find the CMOS battery removing it for a while might work.
  7. I think if the EOS ever gets to the stage of having those two clubs in the league, it would be in a regionalised bottom tier so they wouldn't play each other. It was quiet on this thread until 9th February when Kirkcaldy & Dysart applied, then four others went public in the next couple of weeks. Suppose it'll depend on who blinks first in WL. Prediction - West Lothian goes EOS, Tayside will be left on their own with 15 clubs (if Scone and Tayport move), they'll give it a go for one season since this one was interrupted but then realise a big league isn't competitive, and reluctantly ask the North Juniors if they want to team up.
  8. It could though they would need to be accepted by the current EOS members - which might be unlikely given their location above the HL/LL boundary and the extra travel time above somewhere like Scone.
  9. Tayport's chairman said they are going to leave if there's no pyramid resolution. There are of course question marks are over the staunch juniors, Syngenta (ground?), Bo'ness United Junior (name?), Sauchie (reserve teams allowed?) and Linlithgow (will they return?). Just need to see who joins Livingston United and goes public before the deadline.
  10. Noticed this on Kirkcaldy & Dysart's website, showstheir fencing work this season.
  11. Irvine Meadow with an update video on their Facebook page, saying that work is starting to install floodlights. Must be confident they can get everything sorted within the next month and get their licence.
  12. Noticed the EOS highlighting the application deadline in red - wonder how many of the remaining ERJFA clubs are going to apply or will it be a clean sweep (including Tayport)?
  13. 1. E-bikes can help with hills. And even without them if you have segregated cycleways then you've got your own space to take your time to get up a hill. 2. Edinburgh has a good number of roads with 4+ lanes that can have a cycleway added - and if you put cycle infrastructure on the main, direct roads where people want to go that's half the battle. 3. Amsterdam has more rain and Copenhagen has harsher winters than Edinburgh. Again if it's windy and you're going slower then better to be on a segregated cycleway.
  14. The D&G rate is now 283 so definitely going in the right direction. Only the usual suspects in the west above 300. I did notice the SOS have said they won't restart until D&G is out of the current restrictions, which is fair enough. But for the rest of the Lowland area if the trend continues, by the end of the month most places will get to a similar rate that they've had a times during the season already. I think we began the season with half a dozen councils (mainly in the west) over 200 so we shouldn't need to get really low numbers to resume.
  15. If you don't have an aerial then you won't get Freeview. Depending on how close you are to a transmitter you might get away with an indoor aerial, worth trying. I know on satellite you can basically stop paying Sky and downgrade to the free to air channels (basically Freesat), not sure if that's an option with Virgin.
