  1. Time for clubs involved in R4 to have half an eye on possible R5 exit. Any idea of the exit figures for these later rounds? R5: R6: Great that clubs such as Talbot, Banks O'Dee, Clydebank and Darvel/Brechin can have hopes for more progress - Annan too!
  2. Well this time the clubs wouldn't be sitting on their hands and not applying. You have to take part in the game or else you cannot win or change the rules etc. Opting out again? No!
  3. Maybe the LL could increase the number of clubs in time for next season from 16 to 18. There could still be the promotion/relegation as currently but the league could increase by two by inviting applications for the two additional spaces. That would mean that any clubs could apply, including a club in a relegation place, but two extra clubs could be brought in by bringing the league up to the same size as the HL. Surely even the SFA wouldn't be able to kick up a fuss about that? or would they? I'd give the two places to the losing play-off finalist and to the runner-up in the WoS - assuming a SoS club didn't up-set the apple cart and make the final.
  4. You would think that the max number of teams in the HL and LL would have to be the same, whether 16, 18 or whatever. Concerned that the SFA hasn't dealt with that. Didn't the HL even say that they could go to 20 teams if they wished to, or has that changed? Sadly Bankies made the same errors as virtually everyone-else. They could have jumped ship to the EoS but hung on to the Juniors set-up. They could have been in the LL now surely! Still, need to look forwards not backwards. There's new leadership in the LL and we'll have to see what that brings but an increase to 18 clubs (like the HL already has) seems to be a way forward. Why on earth would the SFA interfere with that? Looking at the SPFL, in five seasons time, shouldn't that be reduced to full-time Pro clubs with the rest forming a regionalised feeder Tier? Don't know how many SPFL clubs are part-timers but it's not hard to see two feeder divisions created with HL and LL East and West below that.
  5. If everyone really wants reform then do away with the separate FAs for age groups and within adult football. There would still need to be special attention for the younger ages but all of that could be done directly via the SFA. I would like to see an All Scotland "non-league" cup competition run by the SFA directly but why would the current Highland league go for that? Without them on-board it wouldn't have the credibility which it would deserve. The idea of the LL moving up to 18 non-league clubs with two down per season and a play-off between the 3rd bottom LL club and top clubs from Tier 6 would work, and speed things up.

  14. Free Bovril at every ground. Good idea! Anyone-else got any good ideas for Licence Criteria which will never happen? Maybe compulsory free entry for OAPs and or kids? Must have more covered seats than will ever be needed? No politicians allowed to have photos taken with winning sides or to present Cups etc?
  15. We will all have to wait and see what actually happened but could it be that the taxi driver became aware that the terrorist wanted to cause mayhem at the Anglican Cathedral Remembrance Day service so he decided to confine the terrorist to the taxi. This annoyed the guy so he parked as close as possible to the hospital in the hope that a) he, the driver, could get out before a blast and b) the driver, if injured, would be as close as possible to medical assistance? Pure guess work. Whatever happened, the taxi driver is a hull of a brave man.

  18. Girvan's lights have been up and running for a while - mentioned elsewhere on P&B. Burntisland Shipyard and Wigtown & Bladnoch were also under the same pressures to get floodlit and retain their licences. Good to see that all three made it.
  19. Any idea what's the Prize money for being knocked out at each Round from Round 3 and onwards? How much to the Finalists?
  20. I wonder if all of the current SFA Board agree with the recent move to delete the HL?LL boundary. If they were against this then they have kept their heads below the parapet for now. Change at the top must surely come. You don't have to have a Scot as Chief Exec just because it's Scotland. Why not get someone from outside the bubble which is Scottish Football who is NOT stained by past associations and by past failures e.g. failing to get the pyramid sorted and unnecessarily interfering with the LL and failing to ratify or disagree with LL rule changes in good time for the current season. Then there's also failure, it seems, to have a policy about whether or not future international players can play for so called "B" teams in the Pyramid. Fortunately the younger players with promise are starting to appear once more and reach the National Squad.
  21. Would that give Drumchapel United a way to getlicenced too? Similar maybe with Rossvale at Petershill?
  22. Anyone know of news about Drumchapel United's new development at Halgreen? They had plans for an artificial pitch with floodlights back in 2016 with a 5 year lease from the Council. Presumably this was for the many teams that they run as much as for the WoS team?
  23. From the new teams thread maybe there will be some new faces in the league next season to freshen things up those left in Conference X: HibeeJibee Gold Members 17.9k My Team : Berwick Rangers Posted Thursday at 19:15 I've already heard of 3 amateur and youth clubs apparently interested - from Fife, Lothians, and Borders
  24. Sort of guy that when asked about global warming responds with "The planet has been heating up and cooling down throughout time, we survived the industrial revolution so it'll be fine". You're almost there. Yes the planet is cooling down compared to when it was formed but it will take a massive amount of time before it becomes a ball of ice. In the meantime the main issue for mankind, and the planet, is likely to be the pollution levels and the damage to the ozone layer - and they have an effect upon temperatures by raising them. Some of that cannot be controlled and some might be able to be controlled or slowed down. Other sources such as volcanic action cannot be controlled at all - the planet dictates to everyone on it. There is also the using up of the natural resources of the planet at an unsustainable level, without damage to other life forms, by the ever increasing human population. Releasing those resources needs energy. In general terms disposing of them means recycling in some form or other. Dumping in landfill or at sea is a massive issue in this respect. Having said all that it is sensible to acknowledge that sea levels were much lower thousands of years ago, so low that the Mediterranean Sea was not connected to the Atlantic Ocean and the eastern and southern coasts of the Britain were connected by land to continental Europe, and in the west Ireland was connected to the UK. It is fair comment to say that the rising sea levels which linked the Med to the Atlantic and cut off mainland Britain from Ireland and the Continent was nothing, whatsoever, to do with human beings.
