Against the fans wishes I must say. 

Quite a lot of LL clubs announcing that this is what their fans wanted. 

Yes, I take that point.

What greater good? Brechin right now are one of the bad guys. All true Brechin fans should be moving heaven and earth to get the Board to disavow their earlier ill judgement, preferably before the play offs.

 

Not one Brechin fan I know agreed with that colts statement and it was quickly retracted by the committee.

I don’t remember reading anything to the effect of it being retracted. Would be delighted to be proved wrong.

Read the  club statement on the website. No mention at all of colts. 😉

The statement came out to explain the club's stance after the letter was leaked to the press.

Bonnyrigg Rose seem to have approached this the right way.  Polled their fans who overwhelmingly rejected the idea.  they then remained silent during the discussion with Rangers and Celtic as they'd already had the decision made for them.  A couple of good statement on their website.

I wouldn’t take no mention of colts as a retraction at all. You would think if it was false they would have clarified it.

Be interesting to see what happens in the future, more spfl clubs trying to move their reserve/youths into men's football - rather than make their own development lges etc work properly.  Can't see a single benefit to the Lowland clubs at all, promises of bigger crowds and ££ in the bank probably won't materialise. Sad times.

For all the Brechin bashing I’ve been involved in, hoping for them to go down etc - I would be genuinely delighted if they survived relegation again because the SPFL barred Kelty and all the other Lowland league teams until the colts are sent packing.

No one. Am I being unreasonable?

Who will get the LL place next year if one of the OF colts win it? As a matter of interest, are the LL operating promotion and relegation this year internally?

The leagues below all declared null and void so they can't promote anyone.

So it should've just been Brechin v Kelty?

 

That would have made a lot more sense.

So we've always bashed the old firm, were bashing Brechin, are now bashing the clubs who voted yes and are trying to legitimise bashing the one club that abstained (but may bash Brechin less) #basherupdate. I'll be so glad when fitba starts again and we can resume just loving our clubs.

It's the same as voting against because it needed 9 votes to pass, and they didn't give one of them.

What would the situation be if it was 8 for, 7 against and 1 abstention? Dress it up all you like, they're wanks.

Celtic’s unwavering desire to do everything possible to develop their youth players and improve the standing of the Scottish national team really evident as despite having been pumped out of every competition about 2 months ago they’ve finally given a youngster some game time tonight.

Just checked and he’s Welsh.

Gers wrapped up the title a few weeks ago and are out the Scottish Cup. Have they been playing their youth players recently?

Back in the day we had the Premier Reserve League and the Reserve Leagues East and West. Young players would play "against men" in those days- young Meadowbank Thistle players for example would face the possibility of playing against, say, experienced Dundee players coming back from injury, out of form etc.

This set up was scrapped because it was felt it didn't do anything for youth development- it was thought to be damaging to young players prospects to be playing "against men"and the u20s leagues introduced. Now the wheel turns and twats like John Collins think young players should be playing against men again. Well just bring back the old reserve leagues instead of shoehorning the arsecheeks colts into the pyramid.

We've had a loan player from Sevco (Lewis Mayo) and a loan player from Celtic (Kerr McInroy) this season.

Leaving aside the fact that neither will ever get close to their parent first team, are we to seriously believe that both would be better served and would develop more by playing the likes of Gretna 2008, East Stirlingshire etc rather than Hearts, Dundee, Inverness etc?

Obviously the answer is no, because absolutely no one ever believed the nonsense that this has ever been about player development.

Whether Kelty are wanks or not really depends on whether you need a majority of member clubs for it to pass or a majority of member clubs who vote. People have been assuming it's the former but I'm not 100% sure that's true.

Ah yes, Gareth Bale who made his first team debut for Southampton at 16 and scored his first goal at 17 is a perfect example of how brilliant an idea Colts team are. Strachan is an absolute roaster.

Just think how far Gareth Bale could have been if he played in the Lowland League against Vale of Leithen and Edinburgh Uni...
