    The resignation of the illustrious Lion King, along with the free transfers of the Legendary Scar to Dundonald and Rafiki to Lochgelly sees a new beginning at Warout this season. I genuinely wish them well.

    It’s the pageboys I feel sorry for in this marriage of convenience. They’re the victims in this sham marriage, being manipulated for both clubs purposes.

    I think you’re forgetting who their manager is. With the amount of players Ferguson ships in and out of a team during the course of a season even the lesser players like Chitemere, Martin and Pearson could be called upon by Christmas. Especially if they’re sitting top of the table.

    Only the tip of the iceberg mate. If you think them selling their soul is bad, wait until you hear the rest of the big plan. Will be interesting to hear how it’s dressed up.

    Got wind of it a while back auld yin when they announced they were leaving the juniors but only found out on Sunday the names of those that are coming on board. Unlike some, I learn from my mistakes, so having previously jumped in too quick to reveal details of Callum Kinnes being held to ransom, kept quiet. Plus the fact I’m too modest and don’t like to brag about what’s happening.

    Wow, where do I start? ....what a complete bellend. I genuinely thought with all the rumours flying around the last couple of weeks about the Glens being on its knees, Warout being closed down, players not wanting to extend contracts and interviews being held for a new manager, that given the disgraceful behaviour by associates of the club in the past COYG was on here to quash them and attempt to rebuild some form of integrity. Looks like the current regime haven’t learned any lessons.

    If there’s any truth in what I was told yesterday from a reliable source I met at the under 19s Fife cup final, don’t be surprised if they’re playing in maroon next season under the name Glenrothes Hearts.

    The dreaded vote of confidence, wish I had a pound for every time I’ve heard that line from a board member of a senior club. Never a good sign as I’m sure Alan Pardew will testify. Seriously though, I thought myself this was a ridiculous rumour but understand all the speculation. Glens were a huge junior club with a proud history and very soon all that will disappear when they join the EoS. I can also see why some might say the club is “on its knees”. The league table doesn’t lie and there’s been a serious lack of recruitment over the last few seasons. It’s not that long ago since Glens were playing in a league 2 tiers above Thornton Hibs but now find themselves trailing them by 24 points and would have been a league below next season had they remained. Around the same time Kennoway were playing in the amateurs and being embarrassed 5-1 by them the other night would have been unimaginable. I appreciate the club fell into the hands of someone with a bigger ego than his IQ back then and his misdemeanours are solely responsible for this demise, but he’s been gone about a year now. “Plans for the future” are not going to dispel the rumours. Action needs taken now.

    Normally there’s no smoke without fire but this has surely got to be the most ridiculous rumour. I said when the current Glens management were appointed they’d be judged on results and how they conducted themselves in the media. In my opinion their behaviour can’t be faulted but unfortunately they’ve done very little to improve the squad and it would come as no surprise to me if their next game in charge was the last. To replace them with that pair after the underhand tactics they employed to get the YM gig would be utter madness though and I just can’t see it being anything other than speculation.

    It seems like only yesterday they were staring relegation in the face having failed to win a single game under Willie Newbiggin. An appointment that surprised many considering Glenrothes had finished second bottom of the Premier League having only won 2 games, both of which came against the bottom club under his leadership. The transformation has been remarkable since Tams appointment and all credit must go to the hard working committee. I for one will be sad to see them go IF they leave the juniors.

    Nobody gives a monkeys about Cooper anymore mate time to move on. Boy is apparently doing well at Gardiners Park and it comes as no surprise they are steadily improving under Andy Healy. Watched the first hour of the Glens v Star game last night and not surprised they’re frightened of remaining in the juniors with that squad and management team next season. Couldn’t compete with the likes of Armadale , Bathgate and Lochore now and would be battling it out at the foot of the table with Kirkcaldy and Newbury.

    Juniors joining pyramid

    Unlike you gobshite I don’t spend every minute of every day in front of a computer. I have a real life, a full time job and a family to look after, so no time to search for individual posts. What I do have though is a good memory and off the top of my head can recall 2 CNUTS, Tynierose (pie and bovril’s equivalent of Grant Brough) and Burnieman (Blackburn’s answer to Hosni Mubarak) telling clubs that the benefits of joining the EoS were NO GLASS CEILING and up to £20,000 from the SFP for ground improvements. Can’t imagine why Bonnyrigg are so upset.

    Scott Lawson has joined Newburgh from Strath as part of the new management team. Good luck mate, I’m sure you will do well.

    Wow, just been informed of some Con_slaverer losing the plot over there. Boy claiming he’s a Shippy supporter has apparently lost it big time accusing a Haws supporter of being Dougie Cooper all because he gave an opinion on some Blackburn supporter. Confused? Me too, no idea who it could be.

    Winiarski? A legend? I do hope you are joking auld yin. Apologies in advance for the following rant but it really boils my blood when I hear the term used loosely. So what does it take to be a considered legendary status. Is skill enough or is it something more? In my opinion, it is the latter. One factor that could be a catalyst in the development of a player’s career is his character. The character of footballers, as in real life, can either help the player gain fame, or bring him to his downfall. We have all witnessed cases in which a professional footballer with breath-taking skill has been booed by fans and hated by the media, simply because his character is somehow contradictory to the publicly accepted values. I could not stress more the importance of a player’s loyalty towards a club. If a player is not loyal towards a club of his choice throughout his career, then that would surely damage his image with the public. A typical example of this is John Martin who undoubtedly had a tremendous amount of talent but his lack of loyalty towards any team, and his poor decisions throughout his career, remain the main reasons why he would never join the ranks of the greatest players. Some people may now be asking how the lack of loyalty towards a club can really matter on the football field. When the players are down there, it comes to being eleven versus eleven, and a ball. So how could a decision made by the player, who is not pledging his loyalty to a club, possibly affect him and his team on the pitch? I think it matters exactly how you behave on that field. It is on that football field where you can see the real character of a man. Nothing can be hidden there. The lack of loyalty or commitment can be easily seen on the football pitch. The state of mind of any of the players can also be easily sensed. At the end of the day, it comes to the things that really matter, your god-given skills and your way of using them. Sometimes though, it is not that simple. Sometimes there are outside factors that could influence a player’s performance on the field. The truth is that no matter how good a footballer may be at playing the game, he would always remain under the restrictions of how he should behave on the field and, indirectly, outside of it. Crossing those boundaries will further him from being accepted in any society, thus inevitably damaging the player’s career and reputation. For example Paolo Di Canio’s Fascist salutes and Joey Barton’s misbehaviour on the field, or outside of it. Same goes for non league footballers. There are some things that a player, however talented, simply should not do, like attacking Kilwinning Rangers fans or behaving too aggressively towards opponents or teammates. That to me damages the reputation of a player, no matter how good he is. I doubt if a young boy who is making his first steps in football would want to become like footballers of such quality. To me a legendary player has to have the necessary qualities to be an example for the next generations of footballers. He has to epitomize the ideal footballer, to which future talents will strive to become. That can be achieved not only by having a unique and impressive style of play on the field, but also by showing a socially acceptable and admirable behaviour outside of it. A great footballer has to burden himself with the responsibility that comes with being one. He has to know that all eyes are turned towards him and in response, he must attempt to act as an example for younger players and future generations of footballers. Only then he can he become a legend. Maybe that is why some footballers will never be legends. They would be remembered as just one of many others who possessed talent. Nevertheless, those who carry the responsibilities on their shoulders can never be forgotten. For me there is only one man that fits the bill at Kelty, Stevie Leighton. Junior cup finalist as a player and manager but it’s not that which earns him the status of legend in my book. Thomas Courts is arguably their most successful manager, a good role model on and off the park and also whilst representing his country but he learnt it all as a young captain under Stevie. They both might have been shafted by the board but will always be in the hearts of fans and the people who enjoy football. He not only raised the level of football from a practical point of view but also contributed to the improvement of the ethics of football. He put a mark on Courts with his character and revealed to the younger generation a successful path to glory. A true Kelty legend.

    Yes, you certainly have been out on the p!ss. Could be wrong but I don’t imagine Tam Courts will have lost to Dalbeattie Star. I was enjoying a refreshment after a game I attended yesterday involving 2 EoS clubs and there was a louder cheer went up when word got round that Kelty had conceded a second than there was for any of the goals scored in the aforementioned match.
