Fauldhouse United 2018/19

I genuinely think that for Fauldhouse - and for the likes of Bathgate and Armadale too - a move to the East of Scotland Football League is absolutely the right thing to do in every regard. Should they do so, others from West Lothian would surely follow and a form of the local leagues they crave will be theirs, alongside the return of other rivalries not that long lost. It really should be a no brainer.

I'm sure it's not intended but, to me, there are similarities here in the polarisaton of argument with Brexit and a near intellectual arrogance that assumes that the people you disagree with just aren't as smart. I'm firmly for the pyramid BUT there is no perfect system and sometimes clubs will be making their own decisions for their own, perfectly reasonable, rationale. The Fauldhouse Utd Chairman has already posted here on their decision of a few weeks ago. It's time to simply respect that and move on. Let next season play out and see whether this time next year enough has changed for clubs to re-assess their position.

Point taken, and there was certainly no intention of intellectual arrogance on my part.

You are perfectly correct that everyone is entitled to make their own choice based on the facts as they have them and as they see them - I just happen to believe that much has changed in recent weeks (another similarity to Brexit!) and so fundamental are those changes that if ever there was a time to reassess and make a move then that time is now. Further delay will almost certainly mean that the EoSFL Tier 6 entry that was on offer to teams at the outset of this season and that will now be Tier 7 entry this coming season will almost certainly become Tier 8 entry the season after next. Tier 8 is really not where Fauldhouse should be if they do eventually come round to believing that the ERSJFA has nothing further to offer them.

I accept, though, that my phrasing could have been a wee bit better.

Maybe time to let Fauldhouse get on with the remainder of their season, they know the script and it's entirely upto them what they do next.

Delighted with the squad pulling together and the togetherness after a very tough spell is very pleasing! It would have been easy for the boys to down tools with the league form and results but they have stuck together collectively and got the rewards recently but nothing achieved yet. Still have a shout at 2 cups and we'll work hard to try give it a good go. Mon the hoose

Not your bit of guff, JC...the other bit of guff where the guy is wetting his pants on an internet forum trying to persuade Fauldhouse to join in with "the big boys".

Did you know when you signed up that the entire future structure of the non-league game would rest on your shoulders ?

As much as I am a big supporter of a proper pyramid, even I wouldn't go so far to put the blame on JC1 if it doesn't materialise.

Yes, I've been there. And I've experienced exactly that. From pouring rain to warm and sunny to cold within 90 minutes of football.

Another good result for the Hoose last night at Thornton Hibs and good to see Jack Currie getting back on the score sheet again. This follows up a really good 5 day spell. Credit to all the squad for having the stamina, fitness and not forgetting the  important work and family related balances in place to meet such a demanding schedule of games. 7 points from 9....well done!!

I'm sure JC and the management team will be rightly pleased and proud.

Let's hope we can put in another complete all round team performance on Saturday at home to Lochee Utd, which should be a good test.

Go the Hoose!

Couldn't be happier and more proud of the boys for their work rate application and desire recently. As stated before we have took a lot of flack recently (rightly so) but instead of throwing the towel in or downing tools collectively the boys have came together and worked hard to turn things around. Last night going up to Thornton with a full squad and injured boys being there too shows how much we want to make things right and finish on a high. Next few weeks are massive. We are in may and have a crack at 2 cups still for me that's a huge positive

Jc1 if you were told tomorrow the leagues are to remain unchanged. Would you prefer to finish in a relegation spot or not ?

No idea but expect there will be one. Think protocol is a letter to John Reilly requesting a meeting of all clubs. Believe that has happened.

My interest is whether fauldhouse would prefer to be in the premier south under the present structure ?

Being brutally honest I wouldn't want another year in current set up. That's my own personal opinion I know the effect its had on the club and another year in the current format would probably fold us!!!
