It’s about being arrogant and ignorant, nobody denied Pollok deserved to win at the weekend, but I would hardly say you were a far more successful club.

Moreover you just seem to have erased the likes of Cambuslang, Petershill, Irvine Meadow and countless others who have been arguably more successful over their history than your lot- as you say it doesn’t matter when the trophies were won!

Again you are only backing up what you think you are, compared to what you really are. Out the trophies you mentioned, how may have you won in the last 10 years? One? Hardly dominating the junior game!

And what is it that we really are compared to Kilwinning?

He mentioned three trophies, which he seemed to be using as a marker, of which you had won one of in the last 10 years.

You are no different to Kilwinning and any other junior team trying to make a go of it.

You are not far more successful, it’s you that said it doesn’t matter when trophies are won, as long as they have been won, Kilwinning have won plenty in their history, probably about the same amount of league titles, as have numerous other junior teams.

You said the only teams comparable to you are Talbot and Linlithgow, there are plenty of teams with a history and success as good if not greater than yours. I think Cambuslang for example were named junior team of the 20th century. The Meadow have won the West more than you and have a comparable Scottish Cup record. There will be loads of teams that have won more than you.

Pollok also had a hard time a few years ago, but managed to get sorted, so you should know the hard work and commitment that takes. Success for some junior teams these days is just keeping going.

You made a comment which came across as arrogant, and have continued to try and back it up. Yeah Pollok are a successful team, and in all honesty should probably have been more successful given their catchment area, but as I said you are not far more successful.

When I saw Pollok earlier was very impressed large quality squad, huge travelling support. And a great history.

I would love to be in their position

However no Scottish Cup wins in over 20 yrs, league wins in over 10yrs, would it be fair to say the should be doing better?

Yes it would have been great to have won more Super League titles and Scottish cups but the period after 2009/10 was testing for the club both on and off the park.Despite managerial upheavals and a financial restructuring on the social club side of thinks the Club still managed to win a number of trophies,narrowly lose the Scottish final and develop its youth Academy significantly.Football is cyclical and Pollok will continue to build again.

I will back Pollok up in many ways to the hilt when required and yes I do get bored on here with all the too and throwing of daft arguments but please do not say they have developed the Pollok Youth academy. Pollok FC  certainly have not and its an insult to the volunteers who have constantly worked for the academy to get them a Scottish platinum quality mark which only a few Scottish academies have and the only one as far as I know to have acknowledgment from UEFA.

North Ayrshire council have put no money into the buffs moving all monies have been put in by the club. The council do not own the facility only the land it sits on the facility is community run by volunteers.


Volunteers? So the people who work in there are not on salary’s?

Apologies-I should have said worked with and assisted rather than developed as I know that Andy Elliot and all the whole volunteer team have given everything to it!

Sorry, they did not work with or assisted.

I was at the heart of it and sometimes I was coaching 5 days a week at Pollok academy, working with youth coaches and different youth ages as well as my designated team and during that spell, successful I may add in winning leagues and helping produce boys for a higher level, we never had any help from any first team coaching staff except once, when one of the coaches took one training session and the manager was at 5 games in 2 years at our successful U19s youth team .

The first team now train down at nethercraigs, beside most teams in the youth academy so there may have been changes now and more connection but from 2016 to midway through 2018/19 season when I left it was not inspiring to say the least.

I'd say its probably best to end it there.

Pollok juniors are a successful team but should be winning more, the fans want it, the management want it and the committee want it, just working together is the best way.     Every other junior teams in the west have the same views, well should do and some are more or less successful than Pollok in recent years. I'm sure every fan of each team have their own view of how good their team is, has been and intend to be, so keep on supporting your teams through thick and thin

This is a strange thing place for a Pollok “love in”  

I’m not complaining but these spats usually take place on their heavily moderated forum

Its not a pollok spat, I think its a Killwinning fan and a pollok fan with different views but I think ultimately were all betting to see if we all can get this post to have the most views for a 'Todays score' post :-))

 

Are we there yet ?
