  1. Darvel Juniors 2018/19

    Until any form of statement comes out that’s very true.
  2. Managers

    I was at the Talbot game yesterday & couldn’t believe he was taking of G Wilson & Glasgow in a double substitution.......... turned out that it went on to win them the game. Just goes to show that he knows his team better than anyone else & why he’s been so consistently successful over the years. Well done Mr Sloan.
  3. Darvel Juniors 2018/19

    I’ve heard rumours that Darvel have already lined up a shortlist of managers including Paul Cameron (already at the club & apparently has an interest in managing), Greg Gallagher (well documented the great job he did at Craigmark & played with a number of the boys now at Darvel) & Scott Clelland (previously been manager of the club & let the lm into this division by winning the previous ADL a couple of seasons ago) to take the reigns until the end of the season where a decision will be made for the future of the club & the committee hoping to bring in current Rossvale manager Gordon Moffat.

    Would be good to see Scott get another shot. Did well at Darvel, didn’t have the best of time at Girvan then wasn’t given a chance at Lugar. Seems sensible to promote from within to carry on continuity. Can’t see Peter going for it & if he did I imagine it would be to fill time as I believe he views himself as a manager for Premier League team s now. Greg Gallagher could be a good appointment, still young but has a really good record & worked wonders at Craigmark. Either way Whitletts is a very well run club & I think they’ll be in safe hands.
  5. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Given the job that he’d done I’d be surprised if he wasn’t back involved with a club very soon. I expect he’ll have a few offers/enquiries.
  6. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Surely not!?! i only said the other week that they were a surprise this year as to how well they were doing as everyone (including myself) had them as automatic relegation candidates & written off by Christmas. Clearly a league promotion to the Championship, outwith the relegation places, still in the WoS Cup & last 16 of the Scottish Cup with a club that has next to no money quite clearly isn’t good enough in modern day football. Has there been any statement from the club?
  7. Cambuslang Rangers Statement

    The club had to put out some form of press release & as enquiries are/were still ongoing no details or accusations relating to the matters could be discussed. Whether or not the club brought it on themselves as some have said is irrelevant to the information the club had to put out for public viewing.
  8. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    Excellent from Kilwinning yesterday, only 1 team deserved 3 points from the game. Still of the opinion that artificial surfaces take something away from the game as a spectator
  9. Floodlit Match 28th December

    Excellent news, well done to all involved.
  10. Cambuslang Rangers Statement

    A very well written statement.
  11. Surprise Teams So Far

    Premier: As much as I thought Hurlford would have a decent season I never seen them accumulating so many points by this stage. Thought Kilbirnie would be doing a lot better. Championship: Never thought Benburb would be a title contender. I thought Craigmark would have been in Larkhall’s position & written off by Christmas. Never imagined they wouldn’t even be in the relegation spots at Christmas....... let alone the last 16 of the Scottish Cup. League 1: I thought Winton would be topping the table but fair play to Gartcairn, having a great season so far. Surprised at how badly Maybole are doing. League 2: At the start of the season my money was on Ashfield to win the league, clearly wrong (as has been most of my predictions). Can’t believe how badly Annbank are doing, when I seen their summer recruitment I thought they would have been challenging for 3rd place.
  12. Weather watch

    There’s always the factor as well that any team on grass pitch who play their game today in this weather could put their pitch out of action for a while with the state it will be left in.
  13. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Highlights definitely made it an interesting view for a neutral, I've said before that if Craigmark can get someone to put the ball in the net then they could trouble most teams in the league. I don't think they'd be challenging for promotion by any means but could be a comfortable mid table side................ if they could put the ball in the net. It's not even as if their not creating chances, just terrible misses. Also note that's yet ANOTHER penalty miss.
  14. weather watch

    I can foresee a number of referees deciding to postpone or abandon games today. Spectators will get no value for money in this wind today with no fluidity to games. I agree with a previous post that there will be some farcical matches if they go ahead.
  15. Games off

    Does anybody know if there are any games off or planned pitch inspections this morning (3rd November)?
