See people complaining about how few league games Talbot have played, yes the main reason is success in other Cups but a small part of it is that other clubs are just not interested in playing Talbot when there is a chance of a re-arranged fixture, they are happy for Talbot to sit idle  and fall further behind. Example this season is KRR refusing a switch to Beechwood when it was obvious there park would be off. They were even offered a financial incentive to do it and would still have got there home game anyway later in the season. This is not the only example it has happened numerous times over the years.

Clubs are not willing to play them even when it has no effect or might even benefit their club. This time it has backfired

Going to be a bit of an eye opener for Auchinleck if the new WoSL prove to be less amenable to taking it up the ring from them.

Auchinleck Talbot are a club with an unbelievably hard working committee, ground staff, coaches, players with fans who spend their hard earned money watching them. When they were juniors they brought nothing but good publicity to that level. They never wanted to win the league that way, they are not responsible for a global pandemic!! The anti Talbot section on this forum is out of order.

Kelty get awarded their title there is about two pages of comments. None negative. Talbot get awarded a title by the same method, plenty of pages over about half a dozen threads.

Absolute fucking box office

As expected the West region champions decision has stirred up a hornet's nest, let's move onto next season and hopefully the WOSL clubs can cause a few upsets in the cup again - a big movement forward,stop knocking everything that people say etc. Get behind every club, increased attendances,try helping - would be appreciated by all clubs. The juniors were great but now it's progression.

Be diferent when they find their level though, just be another bottom division league side now they're leaving their small pond.

Absolute fucking Stranraer.

Yes you are right Talbot may find themselves on the same level  as a Stranraer. I don't see that as an insult, in fact its pretty insulting to every lower league team in the SPFL.

Why the hatred, Still not over those  two Junior Cup Finals.

Be great if a once junior club could rise through the turmoil and be a spfl club, sure their attendances would be better than the crap 500 some current sides attract - obviously they wouldn't be winning stuff every season but let's applaud the ambition. If all fails,they wouldn't be the first club to bigger things up.

Can't see the likes of Auchinleck saying 'one day we'll be as big as Stranraer,Albion etc ' think some of the lower div2 teams have found their level - on the verge of the  Lowland LGE without a fight and unable to buy their way out. Can't imagine that little Cove had any big ideas 10 years ago, not quite a Gretna situation,but maybe some spfl clubs have had their day.

Nah, no issues with the results.

The SJFA taking it up the ring to ensure both were at Rugby Park still grates a bit though.  Might be a bit of a shock for y'all when the new associations won't lube up for ye and you can't get the toon bus along to finals though.

Ross County and ICT seemed to have done okay so far.

I worry about the like's of the Clyde's and Alloa's should they have a bad few seasons.

You really are a child. That argument is easily shot down. We played Linlithgow at Livingston, we played Shotts at Livingston, actually having to drive past Shotts to get to it, we played Pollok in Glasgow a few miles from their ground, we played Newtongrange at Falkirk (not particularly close to them but a lot closer than Auchinleck is)

You might have an argument about the distance Musselburgh  had to travel but to say its because the SJFA favours Talbot makes you out to be an absolute lunatic frankly and not to be taken seriouly

Went to Livingston to play Shotts and Linlithgow Rose I recall

That argument can easily be shot down but you have a point?  Hilarious.

You got yer last wee favour of them mind, congratulations on the title, remember and put an asterix next to it.

Obviously you didn't understand my post. I was saying you had a point  if you didn't think the venue was equidistant but I was disproving your laughable assertion that it was done to favour Talbot and I gave you some examples where Talbot were the team who had to travel furthest.

In all the Finals Talbot have been in I think there were  only three where Talbot were favoured distance wise Mussleburgh twice and Bathgate. All the others were either fair distance wise or favoured the opposition IMO

If your going to try and act the Billy Big Bawz then do a wee bit of homework. The SJFA had nothing to do with the league title it was the WSJFA who awarded it.
