    Boys just don't have same commitment as years gone by. I have 27boys signed and 17missing for Saturday's game. Don't let u know till the Tuesday before game half of them. Attitude stinks and pisses of those committed members of the team.

    Does anyone else think they'd rather see the full time score of a draw rather than having the penalty shoot out tally added? Eg. 2-2 draw, Team wins 5-4 on pens.

    Newburgh

    A long trip North yesterday for Newburgh, in good company as both Lochgelly and Kennoway were also playing teams from the Aberdeen area. The start for the Burgh couldn't of been much worse finding themselves 2 down inside of five minutes as Hermes took the game to them. A determined effort saw Burgh get a foothold in the game and steadying things, getting a just reward by pulling a goal back after 20 minutes. Hermes unfortunately restored the 2 goal lead within a couple of minutes. A soft penalty award gave Hermes the chance to kill the game, but a good save saw it pushed past the post for a corner, with the half finishing 3-1 to the home team. Second half the Burgh came out flying, harassing Hermes all over the park, their good play was rewarded with two goals in the opening 20 minutes to rightly level the tie. The game settled into a more cagey affair but chances fell to both sides. It was Hermes who were to get the decisive goal with 15 minutes to go. Burgh pushed for another equaliser and thought they had it when the Hermes keeper fumbled a ball which was stroked into the net, only for the disappointment of the linesmans flag to be up for offside, one of a few 'odd' decisions from the far side official. The game closed out with Hermes breathing a huge sigh of relief and Burgh wondering what might have been. The end of the Scottish Cup adventure for another year and a return to league business next week.

    Yep that's another knock on affect as you say What doesn't help is the financial outlay and when did we really get any support from the SFA ie subsidised coaching courses etc Pitch hire and training facilities prices going up not to mention trying to source sponsors What players don't see is what goes on behind the scenes in running a club

    Sign for a team because you want to play football don't waste time and pick and choose when you want to play. Who would be a manager a tell you

    Definitely. Attitudes have changed massively. Guys missing games because it's their girlfriends next door neighbours cats birthday or because they have a paper cut. Certainly a lot tougher but rather than folding why not bring in guys that you can rely on. You might not win things but let's you rebuild. We've done it and recently Cupar had to do it as have many of the longstanding clubs. Just seems like failing to fulfill fixtures is the easy option closely followed by jacking it in.

    It’s always good to see boys talking about things they no nothing about! Strath lost 10 players from their starting 11 in the Fife Cup Final last season, plus a few fringe players. Then throw in the manager, it was never going to be an easy start to the season. Trying to replace that amount of players at short notice was going to be a miracle! Then you have about 5-6 players leaving because results aren’t going great! I think it’s the players that cause teams to fold these days, as without them, clubs can’t do anything!

    I agree. Some teams would rather fold than have a season of struggling results wise and trying to rebuild.

    Newburgh

    Another trip over the Forth for Newburgh, looking to build on their excellent performance last week. The game started well with Burgh taking an early lead after less than 5 minutes, they held onto this for the next half hour but lost 2 goals late in the half to go in 2-1 down at the break. 2nd half Newburgh tried to work their way back into the game but Armadale grabbed the crucial 3rd just after the hour mark. As Burgh chased the game the Dale manged to get a 4th, so far offside everyone including the attacker stopped, when the whistle didn't go he took his chance and sealed the points. The 5th just added to the pain. A disappointing day, made worse by no sausage rolls and the worst pie on the planet. Onto next week and a trip to Aberdeen on Scottish Cup duty. Hopefully Burgh can take some of their home form north.

    Smiler 2 teams gone and probably more to follow ........ imo alot of teams season will be over by end of october and teams players end up losing interest and ends up with teams struggling to field a team .... we have scottish and fife cup ties in october and we have introduced our local cups when imo it should be league games getting played ....only my opinion to try and keep teams interested in havin something too play for ...... not having ago at strath but when the going gets tough they fold ? It was same with previous teams like norton house .. kettle.. cowden ams.... kirkland.... great when they are winning things but the minute they struggle lets fold ? Remember one thing smiler .. no clubs then there is no league

    Fair enough mate but these teams that are folding(strath,kingdom etc)haven't even played most of there cup games yet.totally agree about being to quick to fold though as its to easy to just fold and return to the bottom league these days.seems that teams ain't willing to take the hard with the smooth.believe a couple ain't far away from following kingdom and strath.

    The thing is when you get a lot of home games at the end of the season, they become midweeks and a lot of teams don’t go back midweek so the sponsors still suffer.

    What hassle was caused by club?? Not replying straight away to a text?? Could there have been reasons for that!! No they must be holding onto player so after 1 txt by player and league and not even 24hrs later players released.

    KFAFA FIXTURES  Saturday September 22

    Done everything through the book neeb ...... put a letter into the league committee which they would have discussed after the meeting ........ but its been answered by the fixture secretary by giving us our next 3 fixtures which are cups to be fair but all we want is parity with the rest off the teams and for some teams to have five home games on a saturday to our one shows the unbalance on the fixtures up till now ..... sponsors is a big part of an amateur club and we were told at the start of the season that he would be fair to the two teams that play at lumphinnans but as you see he isnt being fair .... its up to the other teams who its affecting to voice there concerns but am secretary of our club and i will do what it requires to get fairness .....

    Newburgh

    Decent game to kick off the new season yesterday, two evenly matched teams with Burgh winning by the odd goal in 5, just deserved on the balance of chances. It's going to be an interesting season but if the games are like yesterday's it should be entertaining.
