Hamilton pajajajaja. Beaten on pens by Queen's Park

And Hivs only beat Stirling Albion on penalties ana, they've definitely resumed normal service now having had a bit of a "new manager bounce" when they first appointed Heckingarse

Yup, the Steve Clarke era is officially over. Killie resuming normal service?

Killie result is a major embarrassment to Scottish football. A new low.

My younger son is friendly with one of the Killie players and tells me that the Italian has almost gone out of his way not to endear himself to them.

Think this is shaping up like an experiment doomed to fail for them and thought that prior to last night which certainly won't have done him any favours with the support.

St Mirren lose to East Kilbride on penalties. Early season favorites for relegation??

St Johnstone seemingly on their way out of the League cup after 2 games. Lost to County and Montrose so far and need to win their last 2 games and hope results go their way in other groups to try and get one of the 4 runners up spots.

County effectively through to the last 16.

FT Caravan dwellers 0 East Fife 2  :rofl2:

Albion Rovers 0 St Midden 0...……..penalty shoot-out


Edit....St Mirren win the shoot-out but are out as Dunfermline play East Kilbride at the weekend and no matter who wins (even on a penalty shoot out), that team will finish above St Mirren  :rofl:

@LA Don, do you follow any of the MLS? A mate of mine is an LAFC fan and got his family season tickets.  Seems like the standard has improved massively.

Been following MLS since the start, has improved every year. Better level than the SPL and has been for a while in my opinion. I’ll watch us on Red TV and quite often it’s dire stuff compared to what I see in MLS. Don’t get me wrong, you get shit games too but overall it’s a lot better than many brits believe.

Cracking game between LAFC and Atlanta United last night. Finished 4-3. Great watch.

As for MLS as a whole I would not say the standard is much different from SPFL. There are some players who are better than the players in SPFL but also a number who would not get a game in SPFL. Standard is improving though and I have no doubt it will be one of the best leagues in the world in the near future.

I think the shit players in the MLS are similar to the shit players with St. Mirren, Accies, and the likes. The top MLS players would walk into any SPL team. Gallagher is with us because he can’t get a first team game at Atlanta.

Would love to see us do a preseason in the states. Plenty of teams to play, great facilities, and the weather to prepare us for European travels.

So apparenty the Arabs are OOT of the league cup (despite what the BBC table shows!)
St Johnstone OOT
St Mirren OOT

Last 16 looking like this at the moment (still 2 games to play although only 1 is actually relevant)

Seeded
Dons
Tic
Sevco
Connah's Quay's Bitches
Ross County
Motherwell
Livingston
Hibs

unseeded
Hearts
Hamilton
Forfar
Dunfermline

Then four from the following (I think)
Morton
East Fife
Inverness
Dundee
Ayr United

Hattrick for Christie too. I'd love us to give St. Johnstone a pumping after the number of horrific games between us.

can safely say this season, they will be a bigger points difference between top 5 and the rest.

Personally Ive been waiting for Kilmarnock's relegation since 1995.

I really don't mind Hamilton, they are what they are, getting a tiny support pretty much in the back yard of the arse cheeks...….so well done to the few hundred who turn out week in week out supporting their local side instead of taking the "easy option" of following sevco or septic.

Despite that.....they have a youth policy that appears to work well and manage to sell someone pretty much every second season for decent money which no doubt keeps them in business. I agree with Tom......I hope Killie fall through the trapdoor (obviously I'd prefer sevco above all to do so but I'm a realist)

VAR  :hammer:

Fuck sake this is gonna take some getting used to.
Perhaps it would have seen a penalty awarded at Paisley today (still havent seen any TV pics) but the West Ham vs Man city, and Wolves vs Leicester games show the way things are going.
Mind you given the rule about substitutes leaving the pitch from the closest point seems to have been kicked into touch already will it be the case VAR is footballs equivalent of 3D films & TV?
