    I'd imagine Livingston probably have 4 club's in it with bigger supports..

    Really don't want another club like that with virtually no support in the top flight though. Ross County down today and Thistle to win the playoff. Then hopefully get rid of an Accies next year..

    Not Championship but looks like Cove Rangers could be about to demote Cowdenbeath out of League 2.

    3-2 Cowdenbeath. Looks like CR have crashed.

    Couldn’t believe it when they signed him. :giggle1: * knows who’s idea that was,
    Christ didn’t think it was as bad as that. :giggle1: I remember back in the days when they were in the spl they could attract around 2000 I’m sure, must have got worse then.

    Had an average attendence figure around 5k when they were in the top flight, plummeted when they were relegated.

    This should just be a one-off game tonight, it would make it a lot more exciting.

    Can see Thistle winning over 2 legs.

    The whole set up is a shambles. 3 rounds of it.

    There's no way 4th place in a 10 team league should be in the playoffs so get rid of that place right away.

    It should either be the 3 teams involved or just one game between 11th and 2nd.

    that's true tbh it's part of the problem of it being a new town inbetween glasgow and edinburgh, everyone already had a team to support! I would say livi only really have a support of 2k at the maximum, anyone else going to games are going because it's their local team not because they really support them. probably more liverpool and man utd supporters too.

    It is a great wee stadium tho and celtic will probably get 3 stands if livi get promoted

    Yeah, it's ridiculous that almost half the division are involved in the play off. Should go back to top up, bottom down and second bottom of the higher division V second top of the lower division in a one-off play off for a possible promotion/relegation.

    It is hard to begrudge any championship team who comes through the playoffs given how stacked it is against them. So you cannot argue that Livi dont deserve it.

    That said, it isnt good for the league. It is another team with little support, a * plastic pitch for next season, and a lack of quality that would struggle in the english conference. Of course that isnt the fault of Livi but I hope the likes of Dundee Utd, Falkirk, Dunfermline, etc, get it together next season.
