  1. Pyramid 2019/2020

    David Baxter as LL secretary has replied to emails from myself and other people on here, hopefully he gets more involved as so far nothing to doubt he's a sensible person. Some interesting tweets from last night:
  2. Clydebank F.C. 2018/19

    In terms of licensing requirements, how do the changing facilities etc. stack up?
  3. EOS League Cup 2018-19

    Some tasty ties in there between the top teams as the season comes to a close.
  4. Live mics for referees?

    If it's a really contentious decision and you know the players are going to argue with you for a while then it might be worth doing. Think he could have been playing it safe as it was his last game. Glad I'm not the only one who remembers seeing this, definitely at Motherwell but Google doesn't turn up any info about the documentary. Could I request a translation of this one? May have been a cost for an FM radio set to the ref mic frequency, but I'm sure I remember tuning in once with just my own FM radio. It's pretty obvious that players at the top of football and rugby act as role models for youngsters, which influences the respect for the referee (or lack of). A young rugby player listening to rugby referees and players speak to each other would be much less likely to act the way young footballers do towards officials. And even though football is less complicated than rugby it would still help educate lots of who don't know enough about the laws.

  6. Live mics for referees?

    It was Michael Oliver shown on American TV a couple of months later.
  7. Live mics for referees?

    They are only used for big games without VAR now so they'll be gone soon.
  8. Live mics for referees?

    Was interesting to hear how much the ref and AR spoke about the decisions, could almost do away with the commentators. To begin with VAR decisions should be available to hear post-match, like the Dutch FA have done, as the referees/VARs would basically run the audience through the decision better than the commentators. They could make the ref mic available for the broadcasters to show at HT/FT, because no doubt there will be concerns about lots of swearies. Then make it available live, especially once players know it's being broadcast live (maybe a red button option first). Don't really see any downsides to ref mic?
  9. Fauldhouse United 2018/19

    Of course it is better in the short term, but whichever option you choose it's still much worse than what you were expecting when going for promotion to the Superleague last season. Surely you want to have a chance of playing the ex-Junior teams in the EOS again? I mean, if someone told you at the start of the 17/18 season that Fauldhouse would soon be playing in an unsustainable 12-team Superleague and then in a 9-team West Lothian league - you would be thinking that they were mad or something had gone badly wrong at the club. But that's now the situation you are in - and there's only one way out of it...
  10. Title Round Robin 'hood

    Teams around the world play home and away for two legged ties as there's big distances between them resulting in home advantage with travel time and more home fans. In the EOS we're talking Penicuik to Bonnyrigg to Broxburn. You're about the only one to have complained so it can't be that bad.
  11. Bo'ness United 2018/19

    Thanks, makes sense as they're only at home once in the next month.
  12. Bo'ness United 2018/19

    Sorry to interrupt but has it been decided where the four home games in April (including two midweek) will be played?
  13. Title Round Robin 'hood

    A sensible person? Because that would take too long and be more likely to have dead rubbers, plus there is the possibility of a home and away play-off against the South of Scotland Champions to come in the two Saturdays after that. The winners would be struggling to complete all their matches and cup games so that the season can finish by 1st June.
  14. Lowland Trapdoorwatch 2018-19

    If I'm not mistaken, Stranraer's win and Threave's defeat means none of the currently licensed clubs can win the South of Scotland League, therefore there will be no LL play-off. Unless of course Bonnyton get a licence, win the league, and the LL grants a waiver if they don't get one by 31st March.

    Suppose the only positive is that if Broxburn do slip up by drawing a game, Linlithgow have a much better goal difference (assuming they win all their games).
