    I think the modern day amateur footballer has a lot more distractions these days, and football is just part of it. The level of commitment then suffers because of it. But I wish a few of them would think of the work that goes on behind the scenes to make sure they have a club to play for, whether it be the managers or coaches, to the Committee doing their best to pay bills, get new kits, training gear and sponsorship - even more so difficult these days, again even worse once Covid eases as these sponsors will also have been massively hit. When I played, I would hate to let the club down, mess them around by not turning up for games or training. Nowadays, many don't seem to care (as much).

    Depends on commitment. These days players want to take Saturdays aff to go shopping wi the wife, go on stag do's, wee weekend breaks wi their pals, get tattoos done, spent the house, etc. Work commitments are understandable but anything else is just a kick in the hawmaws to a committed coaching team. Especially when the returning player goes in the huff when he doesn't waltz straight back into the team or organizes a wee break on major dates predetermined in the calendar for Scottish etc. If ye sign on the dotted line you should be 100% committed or dont bother. Same for any team sport actually. Nae wonder management and coaching teams get py55hed aff and eventually lose the enthusiasm.

    Applies in most sports these days. I'm heavily involved at a national level in another sport. Even there the commitment can be less than 100%. Always stuns me - in my era you would sweat blood and give everything to play for your country at an international level. If only players looked closely at their management team and respected the amount of time and effort coaches devote just so they could make it possible for players to actually take to the park in a Saturday they might act differently. Probably not though.

    Someones team surely stayed up on a technicality and inherited a new squad eh? Better hope your team up their game this season with 4 going down or HoB will get a crack at them next year in the middle league

    Wasn’t Newburgh. Newburgh haven’t had an official training session yet. Some members of Newburgh however have had unofficial training and have had measures In place as I’ve been seeing lots of players from various teams do the same thing. ive been working 12 hours today and I’m the only one who would be taking training until all coaching staff have met from Newburgh AFC. so you can shove your shitty rumours where they don’t belong thank you

    New account and cryptic messages. Is this a guessing game or just a pointless ramble to him/herself? Do we get a prize for guessing who they're talking about and who the OP is?

    No one would wanted to save Cupar so dont kid urself on and Cupar never put in any proposal. Tully? I thought he was off to Fife Thistle? But thats the first of me hearing that he's signing for Cupar and i know Tully well. At least we know who's spreading the rumours now, so i will pass it onto the boys in question.

    A player has told me what he got offered and also what other players were getting roughly as a signing on fee.

    Mind its all about equality Sheikh so diversify wi sum of that Lynx Africa.... Especially now you're no gonna be getting any Aussie Miracle in next season.... Anyway FCUK Cupar (Shoulda been relegated) . They'll win NOWT. Bowhill back wi a bang next year and Leven and GPR up there too so they might get a Europa league spot....

    we conceded less goals this season than you boys managed to accumulate points don’t kid yourself! If it wasn’t for AM soccer pulling you out the shite I would reckon we would have had a good chance at passing you boys on the way down next year! We lost 3 games in 90 minutes all season in all competitions... you would be better paying a bit more attention at what’s going on and what other teams are doing or you might just get a wee shock to the system “dumbo”! Bet the folks at Cupar love when u pipe up with pish eh, I know I certainly do

    So are you going to say who it is or are you just going to stir? If you're not going to say anything it's all pretty pointless starting this thread.

    my guess and its only a guess it would be newburgh as heard a concerned resident and referee saying that they were training with no restrictions but could be wrong

    Thats the word commitment You sign 20+ players get them tracksuits polo shirts etc then come matchday 9 turn up and the manager is getting trialists in Also applies to training Also applies to how the team is performing players will jack it in if the team gets pumped every week

    Ffs lads what yous all getting in a frenzy for? The only player who hasn't played for Cupar Hearts or AM Soccer who has signed has been Scott McBride. All u boys said Cupar and AM werent good enough and now we are paying players haha u couldnt make it up. Enjoy the facebook signings as im sure there will be more to come.

    It’s not a theory no matches played league finished and u put a proposal in to save urself wee man. Tully has a year left on contract u think he’s just getting to walk a away from that without u boys slipping some money into Lochees bank hahhha next you will be telling me you would have won the Scottish cup.

    I remember having some tremendous rammies on here about this very same topic in about 2009 with the Burtisland Sniper and a few other guys. In those days you could get a 10 page all out square go started no bother. Brilliant memories! Amateur clubs would need to be turning over some amount of coin to even contemplate expenses let alone wages. Unless they had a sugar daddy. Makes ye wonder.

    Incredible stuff. Has been rumours for years though that Leven used to provide JC with unlimited pie and chips, dunno if that’s considered a wage or not though?
