  1. Promotion to and relegation from the LL, I feel was always going to evolve. In the past, having one, with the possibility of more, relegation places, this generally matched the numbers who were licenced and eligible for promotion. Not a lot of point of lots of relegation places if few to fill them. The situation has now evolved into the situation where there is now a much greater pool of teams licenced, and looking for promotion. I suspect we have only now reached a point where the LL will probably revisit this aspect of the rules and look to change things.
  2. Can you really anticipate LL clubs accepting relegation to the SJFA with their different disciplinary rules and fines ???
  3. Ahhhh so the records you so selectively quoted were simply designed to put the best spin on comparative managers !! That's a typical politicians trick. You should be heading to parliament
  4. Do you just change YOUR facts to suit your argument ?? YOU were the one who quoted the stats of P8 W 8 !! Now they summat quite different !! From the comments made by others, Tam left by his choice so of course they needed someone else !!
  5. I enjoy reading all the posts on all threads & I feel there is one thing else that could explain the change in fortunes at Kelty. Kelty stepped up into the LL as a bit of an unknown quantity, with a good reputation for sure. I reckon that unknown quantity was to their advantage against the teams they played at the start of the season. As the season has gone on, the other teams have had time to better organise themself as to how to play again Kelty. The LLis definitely has a greater number of better quality of teams who quickly learn and adapt as the season goes on. That to me is as much a factor in the downturn in results for them as is any change in the manager.
  6. So you have decided that current tier 6 SoS champion cannot be promoted then ?? Also - in this scenario we might have bottom 4 being relegated.
  7. But you have to remember that the LL has always worked with this uncertainty as to how many will be relegated !! This uncertainty will always be there until promotion / relegation to SPFL2 is resolved.
  8. Sorry Rab - but you have previous !!!
  9. Why the fixation about the next 10 days ? Why would it be so outlandish for the 3 leagues to agree a change during the season ? Lets be honest - it wouldn't make a scrap of difference when a decision like that was made. Most teams will be going flat out to win their conference, or be in the top 5 at least !
  10. I think you will find that the 'gentleman' in question has the reputation of being a wum who like a bit of fishing from time to time !!
  11. Been a resident for a few years - I claim it as my right !!!
  12. I dont think it will simply be up to the LL saying - here you are have an extra however many relegation spots. From what i have gathered from comments made in the past, the 3 leagues do work together for the common benefit of their members. I dont see that changing as we move forward into this brave new era !
  13. We are told the LL, EoS & SoS meet every month and I am sure it will be discussed, probably more than once as the season goes on.. We really have got to give them time to have their first meeting since the agm's and we will find out in due course what has been agreed between them.
  14. I have always been in favour of a completely integrated pyramid system where every team find its own level - whatever that might be. To say there was no risk for the original EoS teams moving to the LL is not quite accurate. They had to get licenced and that in itself was a complete leap in the dark - nobody truly knew what was involved from both sides, the SFA and the club themselves. That process has become a lot slicker as time has gone on. I feel that a lot of folk are wanting the finished article right now in terms of promotion & relegation when in fact, few teams are in a position to be promoted to the LL. Of course the numbers for relegation and promotion will change - exactly when is down for further discussions between the 3 relevant leagues - but is hardly a priority right away. Some time this coming season is when I would expect to hear about change on this issue
  15. Isa, I have followed this thread with great interest and I understand your passion for junior football - that comes across very clearly. We have heard that there are lots of what's currently wrong with both the pyramid & the juniors. What should have been done, what could have been done - but thats history now. What I would be interested to know is how do you see the future of non league football in the years ahead? How do we move from what we have now, to what you think we will have in the future ?
