Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

There’s been a lot of folk saying the lowland league is getting more competitive as teams filter into it. It seems this season may be the opposite, with the teams that really want to go up investing big time in their team and leaving the rest along way behind.

No division can guarantee a competitive season (I think Arbroath and Peterhead went top of Leagues 1 & 2 within the first few weeks and never budged) but there's no doubt it's much more exciting when you do get one.

The teams that struggled last season seem set to do the same but at the top I think it'll be much closer.

Arbroath did but Edinburgh City were L2 leaders for most of the season.

Celtic/Paris/Barcelona all one horse race.

English premier has top middle bottom mini leagues as well. 

My point being the lad was being disrespectful to other LL clubs. 

The league will throw up the odd freak result but not as much as he was stating  ?

So you're writing off BSC Shire and even Bonnyrigg Rose on the basis of the 1st Saturday of the season  ? 

Far from a 2 horse race. 

The LL, like many leagues will have mini leagues of top 4 or 5 a comfortable 6 to 10 and a bottom 5 or 6 relegation battle  ?

As for loads of pumpings I dont think it'll be as easy as yer making out.There will be freak scorelines along the way though.

Do you know the  LL is renowned for a coupon buster or two as well  ?

Think that’s how it’ll shape up, too, though I suspect the gap between the teams in the middle to the top might be narrower than that to the teams battling relegation. Should be interest in most games.

Wasn’t meaning to disrespect the rest of the LL, just feel the top 2(some say 3) are spending big and they will be further ahead than ever from the rest.

Kelty just blasted 8 by Dalbeattie and they will hand out a few more hammerings for sure.

I understand what you are saying but the name on the trophy will be 1 of the 2, with a good few more big scorelines.

Honestly don't think we'll have a repeat of EOSL season 2017-18 when Kelty & LTHV ran off with it - not even close. Just too many other clubs with quality to take points or even challenge.

Important to keep the feel good factor going for Kelty on the road this weekend. Just not sure with Edusports name change what shape of ball will be in play... 

There will definitly be a few helmets kicking about but shoulder pads I'm not so sure 😂😂

Should be a good test today.  Would fancy us to win but new venue and some unknown quantities in the Braves team will make for an interesting game.

Has Scott Christie not signed with anyone yet? Would have thought that would have been wrapped up by now...

Good performance last night.  The Killie team was a young one but they looked capable so we had to be sharp.

McKirdy could be player f the season if he keeps up his early form.  The boy covers ground like Kante!

Good to see Philp & Mutch start and have good games.

No it's not a bad thing, but everyone knows Spartans were the prime movers behind the LL thinking it would be a straightforward step into the SPFL.  Didn't quite for out like that and at the moment it looks unlikely they will ever realise their ambitions.

EK and KH hold similar ambitions, and of course ES want their league status back, they all have the big budgets.  Not easy, but very interesting to watch.

It was a very good performance last night, Kelty controlled the game pretty much from start to finish. Hard to fault anyone last night, everyone put in a good shift, but as you say McKirdy was outstanding. Looking forward to Saturday to what should be another cracking match.

I know Barry Ferguson isn't everybody's cup of tea because of the Rangers angle, but you look a division better in quality from the team you had under the previous manager. He clearly has some concept of what he's doing.
