That's as bad a comment as Peter Martin's on Ryan Gauld on his PLZ "show".

 

"He's played mostly 2nd division football"

 

 

Even worse, Peter Martin went on and then blocked people that pointed out he was wrong.

Sure i saw a League table on the Beeb at Raith v Hearts which had Hearts playing 37 games , while everybody else had only 27 ..How can anybody get off with that kind of misinformation  SACK ABODY.

Yes, you did. Still everything to play for in the Championship, apparently.

That's only fair tbh, seeing as Hearts were apparently the only side who didn't get to play their "full allocation of fixtures" last season.

Kris Boyd - "it's a lot easier for teams to win away from home this season, no fans means games aren't as intimidating. Rangers deserve huge credit for coping with that and remaining unbeaten away from home, because its never easy away from home"

It's the BBC, so it isn't really surprising, but with the numerous Scottish league playoffs starting tomorrow night, our national broadcaster has precisely zero of the matches listed in their football fixtures.  They've captured the full card of Turkish Super Lig games on Saturday though, so that's okay.

The playoffs aren't starting tomorrow and all the fixtures for tomorrow are listed on the Scottish football section 

Yes, the playoffs are starting tomorrow.  I just went to Football, Score and Fixtures and they don't show on there whereas the normal L1 and L2 fixtures are shown.  But you are right, if you can track down the Scottish football section it does show Pars v Rovers tomorrow.  I partially withdraw my objection.

I forgot about championship. We were both right (or wrong).

These games shouldnt just be getting mentioned in the fixture section though.

One is a local derby where the smaller sized club go in as favourites.

And the other is a play off game over a year in waiting.

Proper good and easy narratives to tell for both games. If anyone in the BBC actually cared about promoting Scottish football that is.

Kelty v Brora tomorrow as well

You certainly wouldn’t know that by reading the fixtures for tonight on the BBC Scotland website. It was only because the STV News mentioned it at lunchtime that I knew it was on tonight.

Fixtures finally include the Fife derby, but no Keltonian/Brorarian clash listed.

On a happier note, here's a fixture* for you: Lumphinnans (A). Doesn't get more glamorous than that!!

 

*My laddie's season restarts tonight!

The lack of coverage of what Stewart Petrie and Montrose have done over the last four and a half years is criminal. Petrie took over Montrose in December 2016 when they were Club 42 and had spent 21 consecutive seasons in the bottom division. At the end of that season he had them in the playoffs. The season after Montrose won the league, then into the League 1 playoffs at first time of asking. Last season they were in a playoff spot again when the season was called, and now in the last few weeks they have beaten Cove, Falkirk and Partick Thistle to make the League 1 playoffs again. In my mind that is a sensational four and a half years for an unfashionable, seaside town, from a club that John Collins would have nowhere near the SPFL. The only credit they get is from A View From The Terrace guys, and well done to them for that.

That's unfair on John Collins. He'd let them in the SPFL, they'd just have no voting rights and Celtic/Rangers would have free reign to parachute whatever kids team they wanted into whatever league, because they don't have enough fans. It would not be disrespectful.

Scottish 'Sportswriters' nominating a guy who has only started four games this season for Young Player of the Year shows their total ignorance of Scottish Football
