Season 21-22 Starts Here!

Enough of that overblown 'Euros' malarkey. Real fitba starts again tonight and tomorrow, though ICT don't kick off till next Tuesday.

One winner already - Covid v Ross County.

Fitba?

Electro2 - 09 Jul 2021 10:50:24 (#2 of 42)

Fitba' has the meaning in slang of game involving 22 grown men (and 3 officials of dubious parentage and eyesight) kicking a lump of leather around a field, often sparking irrational behaviour, bad language and blind devotion to a team or player, to the detriment of normal marital relations…

Oh OK. Never knew that.

However, real real fitba, the West of Scotland Football League Premier Division (Tier 6) starts on July 17 when I will (DV) be attending my first game since March 2020.

I hope the pie stall is open.

Rovers kick off against Ayr tomorrow. Noucliff capacity capped at 150 because Covid.

I might livestream it but am more likely to forget it's on.

Aren't Rovers BMW nowadays?

davedanon - 09 Jul 2021 12:26:13 (#7 of 42)

Even Irish, English & Welsh bawbags know whit 'fitba' means...

Moschops - 09 Jul 2021 12:42:10 (#8 of 42)

When does the Highland League start again?

ReverendBlueJeans - 09 Jul 2021 13:50:54 (#9 of 42)

Noucliff capacity capped at 150 because Covid.

That's disappointing.

Kelty lose to Dundee Untied in their first match with the big boys. Scorer Lawrence 'Didn't Make the Euros Squad' Shankland.

ReverendBlueJeans - 10 Jul 2021 21:24:18 (#11 of 42)

Talking of teams from Dundee, the other lot drew 2-2 with West 'Am in a friendly the other day.

tasselhoff - 10 Jul 2021 21:33:30 (#12 of 42)

Rangers lost to Tranmere.

ReverendBlueJeans - 10 Jul 2021 22:11:18 (#13 of 42)

Good.

Bonusy - 10 Jul 2021 21:14:34 (#14 of 42)

Did they really lose though, or was the real victory the friends they made along the way?

RosyLovelady - 11 Jul 2021 08:56:52 (#15 of 42)

V good.

TommyDGNR8 - 11 Jul 2021 09:02:07 (#16 of 42)

Rovers beat Ayr 4-2 on penalties after a 0-0 match.

In penalty shoot-outs, the 'Vers have now converted their last 24 successive spot-kicks successfully.

ReverendBlueJeans - 13 Jul 2021 11:56:05 (#17 of 42)

ICT begin business tonight v Peterheid.

A few teams starting to play friendlies in England, plus here there's St Johnstone v Preston (the Callum Davidson Derby?) and Hibs v Arsenal. The latter will have a crowd and Lothian NHS are doing a drop-in vaccination at Easter Road prior to the game.

ReverendBlueJeans - 14 Jul 2021 11:08:34 (#18 of 42)

2-0 v Peterhead.

Meanwhile, Hibs beat Bottomnal 2-1 in the pre-season game wth a goal from young Daniel Mackay, newly signed from ICT.

ReverendBlueJeans - 15 Jul 2021 09:33:46 (#19 of 42)

Champions' (And Some Other Teams) League First Qualifying Round over, Connah's Quay out.

Dundee Untied hit six against Elgin in the League Cup, while Murrawell edge past New Professional QPFC.

TommyDGNR8 - 18 Jul 2021 12:46:26 (#20 of 42)

I wonder if all the "purists" who followed the Dirty Queens will abandon the vulgar professionals?

After looking more like their usual selves in midweek (shipping five to Falkirk), another bonus point for Rovers against Edinburgh City, not a 100% conversion of penalties this time, though.
