As Callum Carson says, anyone who has seen more than 2 Livi games over the last couple of seasons will know the big physical agricultural  label is just nonsense. Michael Stewarts was one of the worst for it on Sportscene but after seeing us last week against Hearts and yesterday against Sevco he has now come to his senses.

Noticed a few comments along the line of how impressed folk are with Livi but still think we will be relegated because there is no way we will be able to keep that amount of work rate and intensity up all season. Again this is ill informed people who haven't watched us play much over the last few seasons. They're in for a surprise then.Laughing


The only thing that really bugs me this season is losing to Celtic, because we didn't play like this against them with Miller in charge and Celtic look very vulnerable this season, they better not get their act together before we play them again because i'm bursting for us to get stuck in about them and finally beat them to get that monkey off our backs.

The Livi hoodoo strikes yet again! Another team who got beat because they didn't perform on the day. Well get it right up yees! Laughing
I hope they all continue to think like this rather than the reality that this Livi team makes other teams look ordinary. Loved what we did last season. Never thought we could do it again in the SPL but we are. Cool
Even if the wheels do come off at some point, the start we have made to the season has been a joy to behold.

Don't forget the KIllie match; we should definitely have won that and would have if Miller hadn't been playing. I know its all speculation but if we had won we'd now be sitting squarely in second place three points behind Hearts who now have a very tough series of games coming up.

I hope that winning against the rangers doesn't end up being a double edged sword with teams starting to take us a lot more seriously. Previously I wonder if there was a degree of expectations that we were the soft opposition? Now every team that are worth their salt are going to do their homework.

Was worried about our defence being disrupted by suspensions but, having looked back at the match reports, it looks like Gallagher has two yellow cards and Halkett one so hopefully we'll not have to worry about suspensions for a while - that being said, with McMillen and Lamie we could always go back to a flat four if needed.

Main worry has to be the prospects of losing someone in the January Window. Halkett can't be far off an international call-up surely and other teams are already scouting him out. Same probably goes for Pittman and Byrne but I'm less worried about them leaving; both seem pretty settled and willing to bide their time.

Another problem is..... one of my sons said he saw Da Vita out jogging the other day; he cant be far off coming back; Sibbald's already there and Kaja didn't even make the bench on Saturday. What an amazing selection headache to have?

Yeah starting to get plaudits now, a very good article here> https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/sport/football/why-livingston-are-a-welcome-addition-to-the-scottish-premiership-party-1-4807924

I still think we'll be fine, I really don't think it matters when teams know what we're about, as Levein said pre match v us, knowing how Livi play is one thing, doing something about it is completely different. Teams try to match up to our energy and pressing style, they get sucked into a battle and lose their own playing style and qualities, that just suits us fine.

The thing that really gets me about this report is nowhere does it mention that the idiot was a the rangers supporter but mentions Livingston fc and Toni Macaroni Arena several times.

The coverage on it is that bad that people I know down south made thought it came from the Livingston support.

It's almost as if they don't want to upset the zombies, can't think why...

Easy mistake for the English viewers, they had 3 of the stands, anyone not knowing about our game prob thought they were the home support.
