This was my understanding too. It was mentioned in the official presser for last season's kits.

https://livingstonfc.co.uk/introducing-our-2021-22-home-and-away-kits/

Noticed this quote from that:

Quote

looking ahead to the 2022/23 season, we’ll have a blank canvass to work with and will have full reigns on an all-singing, all-dancing custom design – something that we’ll be speaking with supporters about later in the year to get thoughts and ideas on what they’d all like to see.

Did that actually happen? Not something I'm arsed about really, but to go from "we'll be asking supporters what they want on our amazing custom designed shirt" to not asking supporters and having another template is a bit poor (especially if it is actually a template).

 

Can't wait for the league to start so I can get wound up about things other than the kit.

I remember there being a poll to decide folks favourite kit from our history....was hoping that would lead to an updated version of the winner which was the smasher from 2001

On reflection, a poll asking for favourite kits could quite easily be dressed up as fan input on any new strip, without asking the blatantly obvious "what do you want our new kit to look like".

Connell Trueman was in goals for the team today in their 1-0 win.

 

I know we’re possibly reaching a bit with Shamal George but to go from wanting a guy that’s a team’s POTY and getting rave reviews to then be looking at a guy that was released because he couldn’t break through into even being a backup isn’t very convincing

Not sure if the sudden name-dropping of Trueman suggests he'll be signed soon. Would love it if we could somehow bring back Sarkic on loan, but notice he's being kept by Wolves to compete for their starting spot.

 

Going to assume the Shamal George chat has cooled down after their chairman's wee outburst, think he'd be a superb signing if we could pull it off though. I'll put my guesses on a 2 year deal for Trueman and, if we lose both Stryjek and Konovalov, someone else on loan from some diddy like Reading or something.

Honestly wouldn't be too happy with Trueman as there's nothing to suggest he's any better than what we've got. It's just a case of a new face. 

Definitely agree re: Sarkic, he's probably the only loan keeper that's worked out well for us.

Don't need another goalkeeper now Gazza Malley is out of retirement.

Seriously though, with such a fluid backline at the moment, I d prefer a goalkeeper with a bit of seniority who could communicate and keep them in line.

Neil Alexander?

Probably going to have to win 6/7-0 to go through unless we get very lucky with results in our favour. Looking like the 6th best placed runner up at the moment.

Yep, will take a miracle of results going our way to qualify now. Think the sloppy results from the prem teams has allowed the points tally to reach considerably higher, while other teams have been battering the lower seeded sides for GD. Going to rue Holt’s missed penalty and the 2 goals thrown away to Albion I’d imagine.

Dunno there are 3 groups looking like being well above us even if we win, but a few others have things going in our favour, like Arbroath v Airdrie and Accies v QP. But yep, we're relying on others results doing us a favour, and us having to win against Kelty alone isn't certain of putting us through. Don't think it's as bad as last season though, results really were wild for us to scrape through there, as we were only on 8pts.

Group A's 2nd team is Raith on 5pts and out of the running.

Group B's 2nd team is Killie on 7pts, looking likely this groups runner up will be above us

Group C's 2nd team is Dunfermline on 6pts and a +6 GD, still permutations that could turn this around for us but as it stands it looks likely they'll finish above us.

Group D's 2nd team  is Falkirk on 5pts but still to play 2 games, so need to see what happens tomorrow with them.

Group E's 2nd team is Airdrie on 7pts, good thing for us is they play Arbroath on Sat, who top their group on 9pts, win for Arbroath would put them out the running, but as it stands they're above us on PTS and GD.

Group F's 2nd teams are QoTS & St Johnstone on 5 PTS, both out the running if we win ours.

Group G is us and we need to beat Kelty to be on 9 PTS and in with a chance of progressing past the group stages.

Group H's 2nd team is QP on 6 PTS and + 5 GD, Accies are also on 6PTS with a +3 GD, both play one another on Saturday so still wide open for things to go pair shape for both of them, hopefully a draw and both would be out.

Groups in bold are currently better than us and will finish above us if they win their final games, so lots still to play for and nothing is certain for us progressing, even if we win.

Raith have 6 points.

But playing Aberdeen away on their final game?

Could be tricky though if Aberdeen decide to test out a lot of fringe players etc. now they've definitely qualified for the next stage

It always takes them a wee while to add on the penalty bonus point, probably because it has to be done manually.

Disagree that it's tougher than last season, there appeared to be a decent chance of a route through on 8 points last season. 

Even if you take the favourites winning (Aberdeen/Arbroath) as a given, that puts us up to 5th best. You're then hoping for a combination of a draw in Group H (unlikely both teams screw themselves), something really weird in the Falkirk or Hibs games tonight or Dunfermline shitting the bed at home to Alloa. Asking for a lot without some silly scoreline in our game.
