I didn't even listen to yesterday's games and I only took a passing interest in the scores when they were read out in the news later in the day. That's how it will be for the rest of the season as far as the Premiership is concerned and Sportscene is off the agenda for me. I'm not expecting much coverage of The Championship with The Rangers or The Lochend Brazil not in it this time around.

Feel similar. At least we’ll get games on a Friday night on bbc1. Hopefully mostly away games.

I predict Hibs to have their usual good start to the season, and then lose one senior player to injury and blame the subsequent slide down the league on that. Cue all of them talking for years about the “year that could have been if only Boyle (or other diddy) hadn’t been injured” and actually believing it. 

Sounds familiar tbf

Cheers. I forgot that Friday night games were not just on Alba now. We will have to listen to Steven Thompson bungling through his piece to camera though but that can be funny in itself 🙂

Only at half time for me. I have a wee routine for our TV games now, where I follow the build up on kickback then switch on at kick off. Much less anger that way😂

Very wise, it stops having to listen to the so called TV pundits and then the car crash a match day thread is sure to become on here, a car crash I have contributed to on many occasions:biggrin:

Yeah, match threads are a good laugh at least.

I know, players and managers can go from heroes to villains and back to heroes in  90 mins. Too many ending as villains for much of last season though 😒

Watched Sportscene last night and it was so cringey and amateur.

 

Wooden guests are a staple on this show but the camera work and sound were all over the place. 

 

The standard of football seemed even worse than usual too.

Its such an amateur operation.

 

I don't know how it gets fixed. Its a catch 22. We need more investment to improve the quality, but the BBC are unwilling to invest in it. 

 

I wonder if ITV or Channel 4 might be interested in taking it over. With the ad revenue they get they could invest properly in hiring interesting pundits and just generally improving the quality. Its gets thousands of viewers tuning in, so would likely be a good show for them to pick up IMO.

A good manager will be able to nullify the threat of Boyle. We have a good manager again.

We have a defensive manager again.

Fast is something you can’t teach. You can get quicker with practice but natural pace plus a bit of ability is what all the best players have. 
Not going overboard with the wee hibs rat here but he’s decent. Imo obviously. 


No doubting he’s a good player for them right now. Totally reliant on his pace though. Thing is he will start losing that in the next couple of years. When he doesn’t have that blistering pace he won’t even be a half decent player and will be worth exactly he-haw. Ivan Sproule comes to mind

Did anyone else notice the challenge for Aberdeen's red card, yes Considine showed his studs to get the ball, but Arfield came into the same challenge with 2 feet?

Never seen 2 players red carded for the same challenge before, but this could and probably should have been!!!

Ref's still blinkered when it comes to the Uglies!!!!

Ah well, shame for the sheep then 😁

 

This is the Scottish Football 81% we’re happy to stand alongside. The football of protecting two clubs above all else. Unethical and downright corrupt. 
 

And it’s not our problem anymore so I won’t be bleating on Aberdeen’s behalf 🤷‍♂️

Why anyone bothers with radio and tv coverage is beyond me. I don't give either the time of day. Amateur and boring all round.

Yes! Thought that at the time. If Consadine was smarter he'd have pulled up and let Arfield take the red.

Won't be watching any of it. I stopped watching the EPL because of the ridiculous money and now I can't watch our own league because it just sickens me. I will go to Hearts home games to meet my pals. As for the rest if it I would rather watch my son play fives.

Could have sworn we scored a shed load of goals in his first couple of seasons, then suffered for a period between when Sow left and Jonsson started scoring.

Surprise surprise, blue nosed Bobby and Celtic Willie get their respective teams openers. 

Red card for Aberdeen that could have seen a Rangers red, too and Celtic score from a free-kick (albeit 80 yards from Hamilton’s goal) that looked the other way to me when Julien climbed over the Hamilton player. 
Wish I’d bet corners on this one. 
edit: and goals!

🤣🤣That is not part of the script. Celtic unveiling their tauinted title and playing against a team of hastily scaped together wee laddies. No acknowledgement of financial desparity there though, but will complain when they play in Europe. Absolute joke of a league.

Celtic only 3 points clear of Hamilton who are in last place.  This could end up closer that we all thought.

 

A real nailbiter for the title.

Turned on radio 5 yesterday & the Sheep v Sevco game was on. Listened to roughly 30 seconds before turning off. Was TV channel hopping earlier & lingered for 10 seconds on Sportscene before moving on.

 

That's it for me for this season. Less than 1 minute. Genuinely have zero interest & actually hate every single aspect of football here. It's just utterly shite & cringey on every level.

I seriously hope you're right.  Given that there isn't a dog's chance of the league being competitive, I'd like to see Celtic get 30 in a row.  Surely even they would acknowledge the set up is just a fiasco.

The weirdest thing is that sevco think they are relevant ,the point being the are in that much debt that the biggest transfer they will probably receive is already spoken for,between close bros,Mike Ashley and deferred wages there head is still underwater ,with what the SPFL have done by taking the 3rd largest team and expelling them that league is now a farce ,and I would love to see how the deal with a second wave God forbid ,I'm just gonna sit and watch the whole debacle fall to pieces

Well that is the league over for another season, with it being decided before the lower three tiers even kick a ball.

Yawnfest.

Perhaps we should stay in the championship?

strange how the press bum up the vermin in all these games that they cling on for a single goal win with dodgy decisions or being outplayed second half’s like Killie - it’s all about small positives for the leith samba stars - if it was us the headlines would be Hearts just cling on

or Hearts squeeze over the line
