It has done in the past.

What's your point anyway?

 

It's not exactly a market where clubs from a league like ours will easily find value. That's my point.

If I'm not mistaken Livingston had a midfield of Dorrans, Snodgrass and Hoolahan who are all celebrated players down south but I don't remember them running away with the league up here ?

Make no mistake, the English leagues are all overrated and the money is just obscene. Sticking a £10 million transfer fee on someone doesn't make them a £10 million player in ability and no amount of hype can turn a dumpling in to a decent footballer. It's just that the English have more money and appear quite happy to be ripped off. A global downturn and stockmarket crash is coming and when it does the English will be in for a rude awakening. Think Coventry City multiplied by 30 !!!

Yet most still do their shopping there...

The constant comparison to the English game from people up here is tiresome. England is a massive country in comparison to ours with a lot of massive clubs with a huge amount of money available to them. Throughout all 4 tiers.

Scotland is the opposite, were skint, but we do have a great league for the size of country we are. Why some feel the need to try and constantly undermine the game in England to try and make themselves feel better about the game up here is baffling.

I'm pretty sure if Dorrans/Snodgrass and Hoolahan were playing for Livingston now they would be running away with the league m8. :lol:

All clearly massively improved as football players since. What an idiotic thing to say.

i know we're bad but does anyone think that a half decent experienced manager would be able to get more out of these players even if it was the most negative or boring football?

This is a league where Ross McCormack is a £12m pound player. It's a vastly distorted market.

I'm not knocking the Premier League, but international managers need to treat the Championship and League One with a lot of caution. They're not an easy read in terms of quality. There's a lot of nonsense hype around the Championship because of the downward flow of PL money. That's all I'm saying.

I'm sure the game in England can cope with the criticisms of Malcolm Malcolm.

I agree. The fees are massively inflated. But the quality is still good.

I've not checked but I imagine there would've been a lot of players from the Championship at the last Euros and maybe even the World Cup.

I have honestly never in my life met anyone who thinks the Championship is one of the best leagues in the world. 

I was talking to a Wigan fan years ago when they were in the Premier League, said he missed the Championship because it was "the best league in the world". Not the last time I've heard that being branded about either.

The point I am trying to make is that this is how we end up wasting time experimenting with the likes of Chris Martin and Craig Mackail-Smith and, in the past, Chris Iwelumo.

Utter nonsense. Have you watched Rotherham v Ipswich recently ? or maybe the fantastic quality on show of Burton v Brentford.

Accept it, their league is overhyped dross and dafties like you are clearly buying it. Sad, very sad............

I go to Championship matches regularly. Anyone who thinks the rubbish on show at Easter Road last night was higher quality than a typical English Championship game is on hallucinogens.

Totally, but after the fact I don't think it's really worth getting worked up about.  We drew a game we should have won, it was largely shite, but it will also be largely irrelevant by this time Monday morning no matter what the result.

Hasn't that result cost Scotland 7 ranking places? That makes it largely relevant.

Ok then pal.

Just you stick to slating the league, if is what you need to do to make you feel better about the league up here.

Never mind lads. A hero is coming to our rescue on Sunday to provide leadership, strength and drive from the midfield..............

What you saw last night and in previous Scotland games is the result of bad coaching from youth level upwards for the past 40 years. The is evident in the lack of technique and tactical awareness against a Canada B team.

Football in Scotland is fucked. Run by self interested idiots. Standard of leagues in Scotland is terrible and its all hit and hope. It's going like the Northern Irish league. Only thing that keeps the interest going from overseas is the sectarian Old Firm freakshow. Thanks to them your national side and league is bust.

That must be what you do when your own team ceases to exist..............
