How are they going to fit 12 colt teams into the league setup?


As stated, they won’t, you telling me though they can’t fit 4/5 teams in? Hearts also had a very strong side out last night that included a lot of boys who could play championship/league 1 standard. It would simply be a case of moving actual senior sides lower in the pecking order, to accommodate these reserve/B teams. They’ve actually talked about subsiding teams to accommodate the loss of revenue from the lack of fans showing up to watch the reserve sides.

Hope this colts thing doesn't take off in other countries, imagine a Real Madrid  b team winning a league but a wee team going up as they aren't allowed to go up, this could ruin world football. Maybe a couple of years ago colts could've been parachuted into the leagues but with the highland/lowland pyramid now operating where exactly would the colts go? Hardly worth getting steamed up about and not going to games over. With 1700 there last night and reading the posts on here, looks like we have a Seville calculator working in reverse :lol:

Have you done any reading on B teams at all?

This colt team nonsense is just marketing.

There should be a straight reserve team league as there was in the 60s and 70's.

With a mix of young players coming through. Injured and low form players able to get competitive game time to play themselves back into form.

It used to be good seeing these games and now and again spotting stars in the making.

They were competitive with players motivated to play well there used to be some cracking games that meant something.

This is my view as well, the weather was lovely last night. A nice walk was a much better use of the time for me.



Can’t really complain about parting with £5.
I mean we are paying nearly £20 to watch us play at home against diddies, with worse teams than what they faced last night.

Are you suggesting that there is not an ongoing effort to get the colt teams into the league? Thats how this reads and thats demonstrably untrue. 

Can you prove there is ?

Two colt teams met last season with a crowd of 191 and it wasn't Livi.

East Fife got a bye in the semi final last year because the other team couldn't be arsed, yet the 1700 last night proves it matters to you

The only interest they take in this competition is the freebie biscuits

Diddy cup or no it was a run out our fringe players and new signings badly needed.

Buchanan was very commanding, think were going to get the best him at the right time. Gomis was good and Longridge industrious, hel do a job and his fitness levels were good.

Miller toiled  imo maybe fitness, McShane disappointed again.

Moore huffed and puffed.

Celtic Colts could probably hold tgeir own in the Championship.

Miller being played in a natural position would have helped

Actually don’t mind the challenge cup and the introduction of other UK and Ireland teams for something different. But get those Colts in the bin.

Celtic colts only done well by having a ‘these men won’t bully us’ mentality. It got them through the 90 minutes, but if that had went to extra time they’d have been blown away IMHO.

I don’t think they could compete like that week in week out. Last night was the biggest game of their season, with a chance of progressing in a pro tournament. They came close but not close enough, against a very much ‘reserve’ side from us. 

If we had our first team on from the start I don’t think they’d have done nearly as well. 

We can take from this performance that Gomis and Longridge are the only ones vying for a first team start who aren’t in the last 11 we started with (barring injuries etc to the starting 11)

What was particularly strange last night was the celebrating and I mean proper celebrating of some fans as we put out Celtic Under 20's on penalties.  I mean I went, it being a fiver had a lot to do with it. But deep down I was a bit pissed we went through and continued in this frankly pish tournament. 

Grown men shout get it up you and such at a bunch of under 20's.......Bizarre, specially as they were the better team. I was really impressed with the lad Okoflex.

Didn’t see any of that tbh. What part of the stand were you in?

Could hear a bit of over celebrating on ftv, was mostly kids and women by the sounds of things.

First half especially Celtic were excellent, tailed off in the 2nd probably because they put so much into the 1st.

Raith away in the cup. Not the worst and will give us a chance to see how they are.

Have a guess at who their big team might be, there’s your answer.
