Is the Edinburgh Uni not mostly English students anyway? Always difficult to predict how strong these sides would be with the huge turnovers from year to year.

Some are also History or Maths students ūü§Ē¬†

What’s them being English , if they are, got to do with it?

Clumsily put. What I meant is that if you have moved to Edinburgh Uni from England then you are likely to play for the uni football side as you have no ties to Scotland. Whereas Scottish guys, if they are decent standard will already be at a local Scottish club. 

Some of the non Scots in uni sides are a higher standard but play for these teams due to circumstance.

When I was at Edinburgh, most (if not all) of the team were Scots. Some had links to local Scottish clubs, but local to their home, not to Edinburgh! Nobody was going to commute to play for their "local" team in Wick or Aberdeen (or even Glasgow).

The funny thing is
Correct me if I'm wrong but where the teams not filled with 17 and 18 year olds in teams who finish 2nd and 3rd and some of the games they pumped the mens teams and your laughing at the comment of    

"The B teams are unquestionable in talent as they offer some of the best young technical footballing talent in the country and are using the league to bleed these young lads into men's football thus gaining valuable experience"

Whether you hate or love the old firm, me personally i don't have time for them, they have the best of the young talent in Scotland, well most of the best , think thats FACT.  So from the outside looking in and witnessing a few of those league matches last year Id say everything I said was and has came true.  I do not think any coach who was involved in that league last year will deny any of it.

I may have picked you up wrong but haven't a clue of what your laughing at

That's why I'm stating it, some of those players played with the B teams, not all obviously as someone said , some players were taken out of Celtic teams and rangers teams and made the B teams weaker on certain games making it unfair sporting wise.

Think the new rule this years means that the 3 B teams have to play certain types of players, is this correct with  so many first team game experience or international experience or have i picked this up wrong.  Hope you or someone can confirm or correct me on this.

 

and my view, the B Old firm and B Hearts teams should be made of of youth players, not made up of mainly experienced players from the first team

And that's the crux of the problem.

Agreed, Think if that was the only problem then I'm sure it should be fixed.

Two things, should the results be expunged on the final games so that the old firm results are taken into consideration to make it equal.
the same applied to all the WOSFL, EOSFL,SOSFL and LL - B teams which are the U20s, when the first team are short they take U20 players, weakening the U20s teams for certain games

Reference above to the B sides having to field "certain types of player". We haven't seen the detail but based in statements and reports I think it was players aged 17-21 and the B team starting line up has to feature 7 players eligible to play for Scotland .

Dear Rangers and Celtic

 

Why are B teams playing for the benefit of the Scottish national team playing 4 players who are not eligible for the Scottish national team? 

FTFY

Was the OF and Hearts Colts side argument that their inclusion in the LL would benefit the Scottish national team from the grassroots up a marketing ploy to get LL fans onside with it?

Outside the Shire I don't watch much football and I'm not interested in international football.  So I'm wondering how else I could back Colts sides in the LL league.  Apologies if this sounds cynical but I'm still a bit despondent to the Colts idea...

Is the LL still fit for purpose?

A league set up by application, before influx began to EoS.  Its now a two tier league of poor teams playing above their level and competitive teams.

Add in manufactured teams who saw opportunity to jump the Q to a higher level by application b4 ability.

Introduction of Colt teams is as much to do with no real competitive leagues for them to play in, other than age group football.

The LL is also blocking tier 6 with only 1 promotion place for 3 leagues.

The rest of the pyramid is working better than LL.

This applies to most leagues.
