It’s no junior football anymore

The name has changed but the game hasn’t, genually think some people thought that the product would be different with a new name!! You need to win the battles at this level before you get to play, that’s what’s great about it.

I was also at pollock and being honest it was the worst I have seen darvel play as for hurlford with a team of young players just getting used to juniour football hardly schooled I’m unsure about that! Looking there team The 11 on the park have all played juniour and to me they looked schooled they wasted every second at 2/1 up possible!

Bringing players from the senior game doesn't mean they are going to stick out in the WOSL, hard graft comes before talent in these games. I think Darvel underestimated the Hurlford team tonight.

I was referring to the hurlford not being schooled comment in them being young & hardly schooled nothing to do with darvel bringing senior players in or hard graft or not hurlford were schooled Alrite Darren wouldn’t bring anyone in not schooled I know him too well !

Not much of an answer. It's junior football with a different name, if you want to discuss the game fine if your just baiting, night night. 

I’m not baiting as more than I say it’s not junior football anymore!

all teams have tried to improve with better players whether they have stepped up from juniors or dropped down a grade from league football.

Im saying it’s supposed to be up a level and the juniors are now gone

A high percentage of the players are the same who played in the juniors, I think it's now more to do with facilities and off field improvements. Darvel have a tremendous park and club but are lacking on the park even though they are all good players. I think the league has now gone for them and they maybe beat Talbot in a one off but miles behind them in game management.

You may be correct in the game management part but I got to be honest tonight penalty decision against them at 1-0 up was harsh ? Penalty against them in injury time against clydebank was never a penalty! Goal on Saturday against pollock ball over the line not given, goal against meadow ball over the line not given, decisions in games are having there part to play, I’m not saying no other game has key decisions thats just a few for darvel perspective, my honest opinion of the overall juniours is that referee’s & bad linesmans ruin games with bad decisions, I was at kilwinning & darvel and whoever the ref was there was terrific took no crap let the game flow, but Iv also watched Clydebank & kilbirnie full of bad decisions that tonight was worst Iv seen musta been 30 mins wasted with play stopping for offsides free kicks etc, let a game flow & get rid of these bad assistants! I must add it also frustrates players I have seen more bookings these days for people shouting back at ref’s for daft fouls that honestly are not fouls and they just want to reach for there pockets to make them think I’m the boss, I really don’t get it!

Realistic fans of Darvel knew they wouldn’t win the league first go, always going to be up against it with the established teams.

All teams going to have a bad spell it’s Darvel turn now.

Lots of points to be dropped yet and twists and turns

Darvel players and management are always at it. Glad the ref did his job tonight. Money talks and bullshit walks 

Yes that’s another one for the list who will defo never represent scotland in any major international men’s tournament along with the ever growing list of dud officials !

Bottom line is we are a target and we have 38 cup finals in the league but we just don’t respond to teams working hard and no giving us a minutes peace , but that’s junior football In the top league , I’d much rather be coming on here singing the praises of the team but u just can’t at present and my bet for darvel to win the league I would say is gone already and that’s woeful in the first week in September 

I think I remember you saying "be afraid, be very afraid" try respect. Apologies if I'm wrong.

Strange decision for me to leave Darren Millar on the bench last night, by far Darvel’s most influential and creative player this season, maybe it’s because he wasn’t a big name signing in the close season🤷🏻‍♂️

There could be many reasons Darren didn’t start game I’m pretty sure him not being a  big name signing is none of them

The only reason imo that he doesn’t start is because he is carrying a knock. David Galt has come in and Darren appears out of favour.

Wasn’t at last night’s game but took in the previous fixture at Pollok.
I made the comment that a fair few of the starting 11 that day didn’t do enough to merit a starting jersey in the next game …. and I would certainly have included Millar in that list.
Out of curiosity ….. how many changes were there from the team that started against Pollok ???

4 changes from Pollock, I wasn’t at the Pollock game but yes the boys that were there did say that Darren wasn’t great but my point is that he is a game changer and he has proved that this season on numerous times, from what I have seen this season so far he is the only player we have of that ilk.

And it was guys like yourself DL who put the target on there backs with some of the comments you made about how great they were and disrespectfully commenting about the other teams in the league no disrespect to yourself but you helped cause this situation doon the Brae

 

 

Ffs yogi I cannae get the blame for top players being outfought over 90 minutes , IMO darvel have the best players in the league however that doesn’t make them the best team and  that’s pretty clear

Having the best players doesn’t mean you have the best team.Moulding them into a team is a different matter. Up until recently MK was managing that just fine but some how there has been a lapse over the last few games.Why I don’t know but I am sure some of the posters on here will know the answer ,there also seems to be a fair amount of bed wetters in the Darvel support.They will have them getting relegated next
