Skiddingston v TWF Dundee United | TWF Dundee United v Skiddingston - Playoffs

There are far more telling examples - such as the goal they conceded and Murdoch and Durnan being regulars when they routinely turn in performances like that - but I thought the last minute of the game was a nice display of just how useless Dundee United are.

Entering the final minute of stoppage time needing a goal to save their season, the ball is at the goalkeeper's feet and Livingston have pulled everyone back to defend the final onslaught. No Dundee United player manages to touch the ball in Livingston's half for another 35 seconds, when they win a throw in. From that throw-in, they punt the ball directly to the Livingston goalkeeper, who can claim it comfortably under no pressure. That's the game done.

I realise it's just one minute of a game, but I thought it summed up their level of toothless incompetence well.

That one minuite really does sum up our season. To me, its a reflection on our manager that we can be so disorganised and spineless.

I laughed when he took Mikkelsen off (he was crap i grant you) then moved Durnan up as we had no height. Why not leave them all on and go for it?

Speaking of Durnan, he was one of our worst centre halfs in a long time and the fact he's been the most solid defender (till Mohsni) tells you everything you need to know. Add in a truly awful full back in Robson and a guy who was too shite for our midfield last season, moved to right back, then left back, then centre half and then left back again speaks volumes. Especially recruitment.

If the rumours are that Csaba only brought Lyng in and the rest were Taylor or Luggie, that in itself IS a sackable offence. A manager at this level should be having the final say and know the player he is bringing in. And he's been here since October. Its not like he missed the transfer window or has only had 2 or 3 months so hes had plenty of time to change it.

We were better under McKinnon. Not by an awful lot (and it was right to sack him) but to take that team backwards at all, never mind as far as Csaba has, is astonishing. 

If he's not gone soon then i doubt the season ticket numbers will break the 3000 barrier till he goes.

The morning after the night before and I’m still buzzing oot ma tits. 

Same sentiments as last night, I’m just so proud of this team of players, week after week they’ve ran themselves into the ground and for any football fan that’s all you really want, a team full of committed players who play for the badge and give everything. 

Like has been said before me, Dundee Utd dominated most of the first half but the second half was dominated by us, we really should’ve been out of sight, a stonewall penalty, bar hit twice, was just one of those nights that ended up nervy when it really shouldn’t have been. 

I never every thought I’d see 3000+ in the home end again and overspill into the south, I know there was a few neutrals but the regulars really pulled it off by getting friends and family along to back the club and it really was the best atmosphere at Almondvale for as long as I can remember. 

Maybe there is an appetite for football in West Lothian after all, the big thing now is trying to get these people returning, it won’t be easy but I’d like to think most will be back on Thursday at the very least. 

Whatever happens in the final happens, it’s going to be tough but we’ve been written off all season long and I’m sure most people probably think the premiership team will have too much for us, they may well have but im so happy the players get to play in this game, it’s what they deserve for the effort over the season. 

Already buzzing for Thursday night.

Never change guys.  :lol:

That's the spirit - always looking for the silver lining amongst the clouds GD.  And boy those are some clouds gathering overhead down your way.

Yeah, I'm not getting all the posts from the first play-off saying "either of these teams will get pumped in the final". Livi have got far more about them and seem to have a lot more fight than County or Thistle have shown in recent weeks. 

Either way, the play-offs are superb entertainment and should have been introduced far earlier than they were. 

Aye, just taking a quick look at Livi's league record they've only conceded 37 goals in 36 games. Thistle (if they end up in the play-off) are the lowest scoring team in the Premiership (30 goals in 37 games). Even County have only scored marginally over a goal a game.

There may well be a gulf in "quality" but Livi seem like a side who are a bit more organised and direct that the sort of Championship sides who might go into a play-off with the pretence of playing football (I mean that as a compliment). I could see that approach giving either of Thistle or County far more problems than a tie against United would have.

Whether it's enough over two legs ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ but as you say Livi seem to have far more about them than anything Thistle or County have shown lately.

All the best to Livi in the final, huge amount to admire about the job that Hopkin has done and it is fantastic to see how committed the players are to his philosophy and the cause. 

 

Edit : I also had a majestic steak pie at the ground last night.

Me and 6 of my mates were there last night. Hearts, Rangers, Celtic and Hubz supporters so nobody really has anything to play for in the football calendar.

Class night out, some atmosphere and most of the fans were sound despite us being complete drunken monsters.

100% still steamin.

Livi is our wee team now.

Death to the DABs.

I would've been more confident going into the final with Hardie playing, still been a huge blow losing him before the play offs, but hopefully Rafa recovers and or at least manages Sunday's tie. Maybe Frizzell will get the nod, he's prob more suited to playing a Premiership team with him having experience playing for Killie this season, wont be as likely to get clattered before he has a chance to run at players, he looked a tidy weee player against Morton when he came on as a sub, but has been used sparingly since.

In any case, it will be some end to our season, still feels surreal, WE'RE IN THE FUCKING PLAY OFF FINALS!!!!:o

Never liked Livingston for obvious reasons, but for a club with one of the smallest budgets in the league to be two games away from back-to-back promotions, I can only applaud:thumsup2

Yeah unreal, we'd have happily seen Hoppy shown out the door after that season, and I hold my hands up to feeling despair when he was still with us for our League One season, holly f**k, what a mistake that would've been if the board had listened to the fans, unbelievable 2 seasons under Hoppy since being relegated.

Steadicams normally have two people - the operator and the navigator. 

The operator's centre of gravity is completely un-natural so they need someone to help them move about the side of the pitch.
