"...beers you were given". What a guy eh? Gives away the celebratory drinks when they're no longer needed then makes sure everyone knows about it. Class.

I thought exactly the same mate. That statement typifies the arrogance of everyone involved at the club & they wonder why nobody likes them! 🤣

He didn't give them away,  he charged us £20 a case.

John Gall must be the most arrogant and ignorant person god ever put breath in and unfortunately the good people of Darvel (the real fans) are stuck with him until he gets bored.

Yip totally agree , been to loads of away trips wi the glens and have received a drink in the clubs or pubs and been gifted beers for the way home . Also seen it happening to away teams at NC as well . Just never seen it mentioned in this way , it’s just part of the day out . Pretty much sums the guy up though 🤮

Tranent weren’t given beers as that suggests they were free. Tranent have confirmed they were charged for them. It shows it’s all about money for everyone involved at Darvel. Another classless act. Yet again there was no need to refer to it. Why couldn’t John Gall just congratulate Tranent?  He had to make himself out to be a good guy with the comment about the beer. Reality is he isn’t a good guy. He’s self absorbed and arrogant. Thank god he’s not involved at Killie apart from as a sponsor.

Perhaps it might be better trying to make small inroads rather than a full on assault.

1 automatic relegation from the LL,.

4 way play-off involving the 3 tier 6 winners and the 2nd bottom in the LL.

Top 2 get promoted.

This might be more palatable to the clubs in the Lowland.

Think that may have been one of the options the LL would have looked at if the initial vote hadn't been 9-7 against changing the pro-rel format at all. Hopefully Tranent & Cowdenbeath in and Bonnyrigg & VoL out has shifted the numbers balance on this issue to 8-8 and another season or two will be the tipping point.

Makes his whole involvement (from the outside looking in) just appear like a way for him to flex his already pretty sizeable ego. Nothing extended to our fans for making the long journey, the impressive numbers we brought with us, the fact we were the better team on the day or anything. Has to be made all about him as per. 'That's what you get for acting the goat' as my old man would say.

Idle fishwife gossip. Inappropriate to mention business dealings on this forum. Stick to football stuff please. Not as if there's not enough to discuss.

Yea Tranent we’re very good on the day , thought every defender and ur number 11 were outstanding in the day and darvel just never turned up , played more long balls on Saturday than they have all Season and was just a poor performance , these things happen and a word  for the ref third time he’s done a darvel game in the last few seasons and he’s a very good official and I don’t say that often

Tranent played 34 league games, not sure 4 extra games over the course of 9 months makes that much of a difference.

And in total, that was game 52 for Darvel, game 50 for Tranent (afaik).

Have Darvel just pulled out of a cup in the huff?

Yep. The cup John Gall sponsors. Buffs get a walkover to go to final, will play Hurlford or Pollok at Cumnock. I guess there's no pies or beers being given to the finalists?

Don't think Tranent's recent run of games has been anything like as hectic but Darvel could have spent more money getting the drainage properly sorted on their pitch so arguably they were the authors of their own misfortune in that context.

pretty much the way it looks although they seem to be saying it's to give the players a longer pre-season.

Cup sponsored by the drivel 'chairman' ... Drivel withdraw at the SEMI FINAL STAGE. 

This sums up this paradoy of a club and everyone involved. 

The Muppet chairman has even got the cheek to comment on the west of Scotland official social media channel to tell them they have got the date wrong for the final on the statement. 

What a utter shitshow all-round. 

No leaderships either,  no sanctions for clubs pulling out cups or turning up with seven players and ending game early to get home for Europa final. 

Social media account with good intentions but is all over the place. 

Clubs and supporters deserve in this great region the best in Scotland deserve far better than this!  We have went backwards from the junior days ffs if that was possible. 

Ah it's you.
