Also, the new season started weeks ago.

For the BBC, the new season starts on the day that either Rangers or Celtic play their first competitive match.

Try to help someone out and they act like a dick.

I know fine where to find details of Leagues 1 and 2, but my point was that our national broadcaster, even though they have full details of the Premiership and Championship matches from yesterday on their main website page, have nothing on the lower two SPFL Leagues. Too busy fawning over Rangers again I suppose.

Depends what you mean, really.

Spain has had four winners since 2000, but Barca and Real have won all but six titles since 1984. Is that healthy? It had five winners in 11 years before that.

The Bundesliga has Bayern at ten in a row. It had five different winners in the decade before that. Healthy?

France had five different winners in five years, but since then have eight PSG wins in ten years.

Ferencvaros have just won their fourth in a row in Hungary. By 12 points. The year before they won it by 20 points. The two before by 13 points each time.

Dinamo have won 16 of the last 17 in Croatia.

Brugge have won four of the last five in Belgium. Got a scare last year, but the two before that by 16 and 15 points.

In Portugal Porto and Benfica have won all but two titles since 1982. Healthy?

Olympiakos have won 16 of the last 20 in Greece. By 12 points last season. 16 points the season before.

Red Bull have won nine in a row in Austria. By 15 points last season. By 16 points the season before.

 

I'll stop there because I'm bored now, but there are more.

 

This is unquestionably a Europe-wide problem. Just because there are some exceptions, it does not negate the fact that the league system has been broken by the structure of modern football.

 

So nine in a row is nothing special?

Correct. I’ve always said 4 consecutive trebles is much, much more impressive.

Well done Lincoln Red Imps on 5, that's FIVE, consecutive trebles.

Oh indubitably, I say indubitably. They proved they’re a better side than Sellick a few years back in Europe.

This narrative from some only seemed to become prominent once 10IAR was dismantled.

Quote

But right at the death Nicky Devlin curled in a corker of a cross and Obileye drifted in and hammered his header in to the net.

David Martindale reveals what sparked Lee Johnson ding dong as Livi boss in Martin Boyle 'dive' caveat - Daily Record

Do these reporters even watch the games they report, or is it even worse they just don't know who they're watching and make mistakes over their names. Devlin was injured for the foul that got us that free kick, it was Kelly taking it.

Noticed the sportscene show with David Curry went to our match and described Nouble's goal, as Nouble ghosting past 3 Livi defenders before putting it past Marshall, understandable our defenders didn't try to stop Joel tbh.

I'm surprised this obituary doesn't also mention when John Hughes directed The Breakfast Club.

 

That's stunning.

That is a genuine outright winner on this thread.  Terrible, terrible journalism in its truest sense.

What publication did it appear in?
