  1. Pyramid 2019/2020

    You are quite right Ginaro, Soccerway is an online football database that many punters use to access data for placing their bets. http://www.league321.com/soccerway-featured-article.html Here are some more examples: BeSoccer.com: https://www.besoccer.com/league_east_of_scotland/group1/round18 https://www.besoccer.com/league_east_of_scotland/group2/round18 https://www.besoccer.com/league_east_of_scotland/group3/round18 Scoresway.com: http://www.scoresway.com/?sport=soccer&page=competition&id=1489 http://www.scoresway.com/?sport=soccer&page=round&id=49441 http://www.scoresway.com/?sport=soccer&page=round&id=49443 Persian/Iranian site: http://stats.yariga.net/team-squad.php10525?sport=soccer&page=round&id=49443 http://stats.yariga.net/team-squad.php10525?sport=soccer&page=team&id=43907 French site: https://www.matchendirect.fr/classement-foot/ecosse/classement-south-of-scotland.html https://www.matchendirect.fr/equipe/blackburn-united-43907.html Turkish sites: https://www.mackolik.com/takim/musselburgh-athletic/maçlar/d24hr9kqayaawebewuhlt1une https://www.mackolik.com/takim/blackburn-united/puan-durumu/a9cp9k3qkjt7h39kt8kxn3td6 https://www.sahadan.com/takim/blackburn-united/maçlar/a9cp9k3qkjt7h39kt8kxn3td6 Lots of languages: https://www.goal.com/en-us/feeder-leagues/table/9edf0eouow31wxuyt4wzr4max https://www.goal.com/en-us/team/linlithgow-rose/5s9zt4pljuyx56dnc5o35yjuh https://www.goal.com/en-us/team/blackburn-united/a9cp9k3qkjt7h39kt8kxn3td6 Also info in Transfermarkt.com https://www.transfermarkt.com/newtongrange-star-fc/transfers/verein/21795/ https://www.transfermarkt.com/penicuik-athletic/transfers/verein/6324/saison_id/2018 https://www.transfermarkt.com/bonnyrigg-rose-athletic-fc/transfers/verein/20603/saison_id/2018
  2. Pyramid 2019/2020

    This just shows how much Junior football is lagging behind the EoSL at the moment: https://uk.soccerway.com/national/scotland/south-of-scotland/20182019/east-of-scotland/r49312/ https://uk.soccerway.com/national/scotland/south-of-scotland/20182019/east-of-scotland-c/r49441/ https://uk.soccerway.com/national/scotland/south-of-scotland/20182019/east-of-scotland-c/r49443/ There is even a page for the conference play-off finals: https://uk.soccerway.com/national/scotland/south-of-scotland/20182019/championship-round---east/r49444/ I wonder how much the EoSL is earning from their fixtures on a prestige betting website like Soccerway?

  4. Junior football, what is the future?

    Even if the ERJFA gain access to the Pyramid there remain in my view many disbenefits for West Lothian and Fife clubs, including: - unbalanced nature of the Super League - geographical spread of clubs north of the Tay - cost of travel to Tayside - poor attendances - lack of local interest - low income generation - weak sponsorship opportunities - continued migration of players to EoSL - duplication of product - feeling of being left behind Many of these points are of course interrelated.
  5. Junior football, what is the future?

    The chap from Kelty Hearts last year did a very useful appraisal of the advantages of leaving the ERJFA and joining the EoSL. Perhaps now would be a good time to outline the current benefits for West Lothian and Fife clubs (and a few from Angus maybe) leaving the ERJFA for the EoSL next season. At the same time I think it would be helpful if Kilbowie Benches outlines the disbenefits. This process might contribute in a small way to the difficult decision that some ERJFA clubs now face.
  6. Junior football, what is the future?

    I suppose there is nothing to stop West Lothian and Fife Junior clubs submitting "holding applications" to the EoSL in the next couple of months and then decide April and May if they really wish to move for 2019/20 season or put there applications on hold for a year (in Clydebank fashion). Dundonald found the decision-making process quite difficult and it is understandable that West Lothian and Fife Junior clubs are going through similar soul searching given the lack of detail and clarity coming out from the SFA / SJFA / PWG. I would suggest that given the difficult circumstances that West Lothian and Fife Junior clubs face at the moment it is essential that they keep their options open and do not miss the EoSL deadline date of 31st March.
  7. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Are we again seeing political motives and misinformation playing out behind the scenes where "self-interest" of one or more Junior party is over-riding the general interests of Junior clubs as a whole in making a seamless move into the Senior Non League Pyramid? No guesses who is behind the current log-jam.
  8. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Did the SJFA "give"? I think not! They have been forced into a corner by the migration of ERJFA clubs to the EOSL at the end of last season and by the "Pyramid support" vote. And sadly they still appear to be wriggling rather than fully embracing change.
  9. Pyramid 2019/2020

    If we follow this scenario - a one division LL2 for 2019/20. How many clubs would the EOSL be expected to lose for 2019/20 and what would be the impact for their league structure? Would it be a "kick in the teeth" for a supportive league or would the clubs moving to LL2 simply be replaced by ERJFA clubs? How many clubs would move over to LL2 from the WRJFA and what would be the impact on their new pyramid? What would a LL2 look like for 2019/20 if it was quickly implemented? Generally I think that it is a geat concept but it will have "knock-on" implications down both sides of the pyramid - east and west (if it happens).
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    The EOSL are going to have a very successful Groundhop Weekend at the end of March: Friday 29th March Dunipace v Bonnyrigg (8pm) Saturday 30th March Camelon v Edinburgh Utd (11am) Inverkeithing v Heriot-Watt Uni (2:15pm) Blackburn v Preston (5:15pm) Linlithgow v Jeanfield (8pm) Sunday 31st March Peebles v Newtongrange (12:30pm) There could be up to a thousand spectators for the Linlithgow v Jeanfield game if both teams have a chance of winning the Conference C final Why on earth are the Juniors not supporting the Groundhoppers? For clubs it is not only a money making exercise but a great way to put our clubs on the football map. The Hoppers may be bringing up to three coaches from England for the six game weekend and then there those coming up by car. There will even be groundhoppers coming over from Germany I had a chat with a fellow groundhopper about this a while ago. Apparently the meeting with West Region JFA reps was going quite well but then this old guy put a stop to things. It does not take much to fathom out who the old guy must have been but why on earth would he put a stop to such an innovative change that involved permutation of fixtures over three days many months hence? The Groundhopper Rep could not understand what the problem was. However, if he had known who he was dealing with and the stubborn resistance to any change and the problems the WRJFA have had making advanced fixture permutations, the Rep would have known he was facing a battle that had no likelihood of a successful outcome. Kennie has certainly improved the fixture making this season. But I still feel that there is a firm resistance to any innovations of this nature in the West Region. Am I wrong? Does the West Region want their own Groundhop? Or are we still sticking our head in the sand.
  11. Groundhop 2019 dates

    This is great news and is just as I expected. Linlithgow Rose in particular is a great attraction to English groundhoppers but there will be visitors coming from as far away as Germany. I wonder who might have scuttled the chances of a West Region groundhop a few years ago? Does anyone have any ideas? SR? In contrast I think that HibeeJibee & Co have been absolutely brilliant promoting the EOSL - "a breath of fresh air". Can someone change the year to 2019 in the thread title please. It is very confusing and will mess up those that first locate the thread on Google.
  12. Junior football, what is the future?

    Perhaps Burnie_man could work out the Tier 7 split on a geographical basis.
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    Out of the above clubs is there any that have indicated that they will be definitely be staying in the East Region next season? At the moment there would appear to be "zilch" that have made such a commitment and all we are getting is unfounded bluster from the usual suspects.
  14. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Good question. Do Pumpherston propose to jump or follow the pack? We need a Dalkeith Mark II to get things moving and take us away from all the current speculation..
  15. Pyramid 2019/2020

    No need contemplate joining the pyramid system - if we are to believe that all Junior Clubs/Leagues ARE NOW TO BE IN - the clubs certainly will be part of the SFA Pyramid next season. The big question for clubs like Armadale Thistle is what Tier do you expect to be joining at? Tier 9 - SJFA East Region Premier League South? Tier 8 - SJFA East Region Superleague? Tier 7 - East of Scotland League Conference ....? NB: You could be at Tier 10 if SPFL3 is delivered! What is the view at Armadale? In my opinion the sooner we are one happy family the better.
