East Region Premier Season 16/17

Recommended Posts

All that makes perfect sense, not even been a year and we have had 2 managers now, assistant manager left a few weeks back along with the Co Chairman and a team that has lost many young players,and experienced heads and seems to play as though it does not really matter. To much changes in my opinion. 

Team playing poorly after a decent start albeit we played teams that were just promoted or at the right time. Last  7/8 games concededed goals and taken heavy defeats. 

Teams below us and above have games in hand and if they collect points we will slip further towards the bottom. I can't see where the progression has been in the last year other than gone backwards and may well be a relegation fight unless we can start putting 4/5 wins together which should not be beyond us. 

Another committee member is just what we need that all makes perfect sense now. 

Well done St. Andrews...

Absolutly shocking performance from tayport being 2 nil up against one the worst sides we have faced this season and a team low on confidence we should never be throwing it away and finishing 2-2 think time is finally up for ovenstone started the season well but now going backwards needs changed asap or we will never be where we should be at the top end of the table fighting out for the league and promotion

St Andrews came out of their shells in a decent second half performance. Only one Saints man whinging at the end and that was about my monkey picture above.

Which I hasten to add has no reference attached to said club :angel

Thought 1st half Tayport defended well and looked really dangerous on the counter and probably should've been more than the 2 goals in front. Credit to St Andrews, they came out fighting in 2nd half and although the 1st 20mins of it was almost a non event, they certainly finished strongly and wouldn't have been surprised if they had grabbed the winner, they were very much in top anyway. Tayport will be disappointed, never started at all in 2nd half. They'll be fine though, all teams have a blip at some point during the season, Ovy will work hard to get it right.

Anyone know what happened to the Armadale Manager thread?!

Good win for the 'Dale on Saturday. Anyone know who took charge of the team and has there been any rumours of who may get the job on a permanent basis?

Taken down as becoming a platform for the community clubs inane drivel. Team picked by players, coached from sidelines by frankie. Quite a few serious applications for job, none local.

See paul mcmanus has left east fife and retired from senior football due to a new job as a postie would surely do a great job at this level and think he would be perfect for us tayport with the chances that we create he would be perfect for putting them in the net sure he played with ovenstone at east fife for a season in the late naughties

To be fair, working til 12ish on a Saturday morning can't have been great preperation for him for some of the away games involved with the senior game. Maybe that and not playing every week made it an easy decision for him.

There is a 9.30 inspection planned at Strathmore Park ahead of the match between Forfar WE and Bathgate Thistle. Fears are that the overnight temperatures might mean a frozen pitch tomorrow.

It's absolutely freezing. I would suggest that those forecasts you've seen are hugely optimistic. Certainly the ones I've seen are suggesting temperatures aren't likely to rise much above freezing and the fog predicted for Saturday doesn't help us either.
