Livi v Dundee

Post by Liviforever on Sun Oct 14, 2018 2:37 pm

Pity they got their first win a couple of games ago, but they still look very low on confidence and once they concede a goal they are gone. Still expecting a tough game though, Killie only beat them after being awarded a dodgy penalty.


Our players will be well rested after the break and raring to go again, so can't really see us not getting a win here, no doubt Bertie will balance that out with words of caution, but our mental strength is unbelievable just now and I think we'll continue our excellent home form in the Premiership.

Prob line up with the same starting eleven, and see Sibbald getting a 2nd half substitute appearance, really expecting good things from him this season.

A cautious 2-0 win would be my guess, but hoping we really turn it on and bang in a good few goals.

For all intents & purposes we should wipe the floor with them. We are a better team than them on all evidence but our record against them isn’t really that good, even when we relegated them it was a hard earned draw. So without counting hatchlings, I expect them to be right up for it.

I will anticipate another hard fought draw...

1-1 FG 26 mins - but I really hope we give them a real chasing.

Same 11 again if they're all available, (hopefully) having Hardie and Sibbald back on the bench should give us another threat if we're trailing.

2-0 Livi, FG 26 mins.

McCann's been sacked, maybe get a harder game than we would've now but doesn't change anything for me, still expecting us to win this game.

My levels of confidence are rising with each day as i'm bursting for us to get back to playing football, really think we will score 3 or 4 goals on Saturday. bounce

Nick Walsh the referee for this game.

I think that ship has sailed, Gary Holt being undefeated and winning the MoTM proved the board right in punting Miller.

Might be James McPake taking charge of them for this game though, that'll be a bit weird, seeing him in the away dugout.

Given his inexperience in coaching I’d be happy with that... I think.

Oh, the board were right to punt him, even if he goes on to become the greatest manager/coach the world has ever seen; because with us he wasn’t even a good manager/coach.

Miller had two main faults; one not playing Lithgow and two playing himself in preference to better or fitter players.

However in a footballing sense he's no fool; and he knows many of the player intimately.

If he insists on playing himself for 90 minutes it will be like playing ten men but you never know.

Jim McIntyre is their new manager, lets give him a baptism of fire for his first game in charge, and send him home pointless.

Pity about the international break.Hopefully we wil carry the momentum we had into tommorows game.Theyl no doubt be wanting to impress their new manager and i reckon Miller will be giving him pointers as how to stop us playing our game.However with home advantage and all of us getting right behind Gary and the boys i see no reason as to why we cant prevail here and send them back to Tayside whining and moaning about how they were robbed.Any way cant wait.Really looking forward to this one.Cmon Livi.Do it!!!

Only for those on the front row; the ones behind sit on the same seats as us.

Still looks a lot better than before

Settle, you didn't expect us to provide fancy seats for the players did you? lol!

It's see through now too so the players can't hide away in the dugout. The coaching staff rarely sit down anyway right enough, usually standing leaning against the dugout or pacing up and down.

It's magic you know, Gallagher Halkett Lithgow. cheers

Very solid display and another clean sheet, what a team we have this season. Some cracking deliveries from Keaghan for our first 2 goals too, esp the 2nd one. Everyone was watching Gallagher and Halkett nips in and heads home. Good free kick by Lawless for our 3rd, always put it on target in those type of free kicks, there's a good chance it'll go in if everyone misses it, the keeper wont see it coming. Sweet 4th goal too, great that it was Lithgow finishing them off and a wee dig at Miller.

That puts us in a fantastic position well clear of the bottom 3 stooges, I doubt very much we'll be looking that far down the table this season, top 6 is where we should be now.

Oh how I laughed when I saw the scoreline & the scorers whilst eating my breakfast in the Country that Can-a(da) be named. Due to fly back tonight but a great start to the day, especially with big Al getting the final word.

Mon the Livi!!!!

Went for a cautious 2-0, hoping we'd bang in a few more, and that's exactly what we did.

Once the 2nd went in I could see us scoring more, Dundee were finished. Does our goals for a power of good, the GD looks a bit better now. Not sure what's going on with Hardie just now, expected him to be making sub appearances the same as Sibbald, read someone saying he is fully fit. Yet isn't even in the bench, strange.

I'm sure I saw somewhere that he had a foot injury, not sure where I read it, think it was the end of last month round about the time of the Rangers game.

FFS, hope it isn't serious.

That would tie in with him coming on as a sub against Accies and then disappearing and not being seen at any game since.

Callum Carson is under the impression he's fully fit based on asking what injury problems Livi have and the answer being Miller and De Vita... no mention of Hardie. Interested to see the reason he isn't even on the bench if this is the case.

Anyway, that doesn't matter right now. What a result, back up to 4th. We're all going on a European tour...

Hardie, in answer to a tweet, said he was nearing fitness. Apparently he had to have some work on his ankle re-done.

Yeah I already said you could have a point a couple of weeks back on here. Someone put up the stats on P&B, comparing both teams at this stage and we're on more points than the 2001/02 team.


2001/02: 9 games - 16 points.
2018/19: 9 games- 18 points.

Still a long way to go and it'll be tough to emulate that team let alone sur[ass them, but where I think we will do better is near the end of the season. I reckon this team is more durable and wont have such a big dip in results. The first half of the season was fantastic, but we had a big dip in form where Aberdeen almost got above us. This team have shown in back to back promotions that they are pretty consistent and bounce hack well from a defeat, yet to see them hit a bad run of results.

Only real fear is the January transfer window and the danger of us losing Halkett.

What I also love about this Livi team is they never cease to amaze us and have stepped up a level twice and are still showing the same performances, in fact if anything we've got better and better. We look a lot better than last season, they really are an incredible group of players and management team/backroom staff.
