Too much of a good thing

Too much of a good thing

GAME 17 – QUEEN OF THE SOUTH 1-1 LIVINGSTON Date: Saturday, August 23, 2014 – 3pm Venue: Palmerston Park, Dumfries It’s been said that you can have too much of a good thing and this Saturday afternoon visit to Palmerston was a case in point. The home of Queen of the South is one of my favourite … Continue reading

GAME 16 – LIVINGSTON 4-1 HEART OF MIDLOTHIAN Date: Wednesday, August 20, 2014 – 7.45pm Venue: Almondvale Stadium, Livingston Livingston were pre-match underdogs for this Petrofac Training Cup game, but progressed very comfortably to the quarter finals with a fine performance. Hearts surprised everyone – especially the bookies and Livi manager John McGlynn – with a team selection which included ten changes … Continue reading

Game 87: Hamilton Accies 2-0 Livingston

Game 87: Hamilton Accies 2-0 Livingston

Friday, February 21, 2014 @ New Douglas Park “This is the kind of game that could get football stopped,” I tweeted midway through this Friday night game in Hamilton. It was poor fare, though I’m the first to admit that my judgement may be clouded by own club bias and the crushing disappointment of a … Continue reading

Game 86: Falkirk U20 2-2 Hibernian U20

Tuesday, February 18, 2014 @ Falkirk Stadium Unlike south of the border, there’s not a huge amount of midweek football in Scotland during the winter months.

Game 85: Alloa Athletic 0-3 Livingston

Saturday, February 15, 2014 @ Recreation Park One the many things I love about football is its capacity to produce something unexpected, unusual or special. This was a routine league game for my own club at the ground I’ve visited many times, but thanks to an exceptional goal from Livi midfielder Martin Scott, it’s one that I’ll be … Continue reading

Game 82: Dumbarton 2-2 Livingston

Game 82: Dumbarton 2-2 Livingston

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 @ Bet Butler Stadium, Dumbarton With respect to Dumbarton, visits to the Bet Butler Stadium don’t tend to stand out in Livingston’s fixture list. A quirk of fate will ensure that this fairly unremarkable game will be remembered forever by at least one travelling supporter, however. With it’s single modern stand, Dumbarton’s home ground is … Continue reading

Game 79: Hearts U20 2-3 Hamilton Accies U20

Tuesday, January 21, 2014 @ Riccarton Campus, Edinburgh I’ve got right into the SPFL Under 20 League this season; there’s been little else on midweek in Scotland through the winter. The games are usually played at decent venues and there tends to be a couple of recognised first teamers in most Under 20 sides as well … Continue reading
