East Fife vs Falkirk

I don't think the majority of League 1 fans are delusional about this level of football, but I do think Falkirk fans have a tendency to over-rate where they've come from, which has led to this derisory patter about the standard of this league.

If you want to use cup games to justify your stance on the standard of this league then surely Morton drawing with Brora is testimony to how shite the second tier is? Or Hamilton being pumped out by Annan a couple of years back would be testimony that the Premier league is also complete shite? That's all my point is here, Falkirk fans go on as if they've come from a footballing Mecca, complete with great footballers and free flowing football played on the deck, when the reality is that Scottish football really isn't a great standard across the board. Deal with it or watch something else on a Saturday would be my advice.

You complaining on a message board about the standard of this league also does hee-haw to change it, same with those who maybe over-rate the standard, they aren't halting progression. 

But the majority of fans on here seem to think that the standard is good! I think the majority  are indeed delusional or at the very least have become slowly become accustomed to a very poor standard of football. Many fans jump in on here and have a go at FFC supporters for saying the league is bad, and that it isn't as bad as we are claiming it is. I have news for them, it is every bit as bad, and even more, than we are saying it is. 

The cup results were just one example of how pish poor this league is, another example were the two midweek games last week that finished 0-0, but of course it was cold and wet and not ideal for playing football in. East Fife shipping 4 goals at home to non-league team is a bit more painful than Morton's draw.

If as you say. "the reality is that Scottish football really isn't a great standard across the board" then that just supports my point. Claiming that it isn't that bad or that it is even a good standard is utterly delusional.

You would have a point if we excluded Falkirk from our list of shit teams in L1.
There is nothing wrong with admitting that your team is shit and playing in a shit league, it makes you appreciate the good times when, or maybe that should be 'if', they come along.
What people should avoid is kidding themselves on that their team is not really that bad and that the standard of L1 is good because that means that the shit you are watching becomes acceptable and your club will never rise above their current poor standard.
I would defy anyone to say that L1 is a decent standard of football., the embarrassing efforts made by East Fife and Montrose against non-league teams are testimony to how bad this league really is. Perhaps it has been in a good standard in previous years, but this season the standard is shocking. But if people defend this poor standard the clubs will continue to produce it, why should they try to improve if no one is complaining?
 


What the actual f**k is this mess?

It is reality.  


It really isn’t! So, just because Falkirk fans think the standard is poor, then we should all agree? Are you trying to say that there is a massive gulf in class between the Championship and this level? Just because we lost to a non league team in the cup doesn’t make the standard awful. It’s cup football, it happens!

You say we have to ‘complain’ about the standard or nothing will change. Complain to whom exactly? You sound like an entitled Celtic or The Rangers fan.

The overarching sentiment I pick up from non Falkirk fans is that the league and games are competitive. Not that the league is of a great standard.

Ordered my ticket for this today and quite looking forward to it, missed the game on Saturday but hopefully the standard of performances continue to improve under the new management. Best place to park for a speedy getaway?

Have you seen the standard of your team's defending against BSC and Airdrie?

I am not asking you to agree, I am just giving my opinion on how shit this league is. I think at one time I would have defended the Championship as being a decent standard, but the last 2-3 or so seasons I do feel that the Championship's standards have fallen quite a bit.

I also know cup upsets happen, but very rarely are they of the standard of EF's capitulation. That last 10-15 mins against BSC is beyond abysmal, the goal from the long throw-in, holy shit! 

If you want to complain, you can do it various ways. Write to your club, hit their Twitter page, go on forum etc.

Falkirk fans are the P&B equivalent of an incel who launches into an online diatribe because someone said they thought the Star Wars prequel trilogy "wasn't that bad" on twitter.

I'm really struggling with the stupidness on show here.

This thread is not so much "head's gone" as "was the head even there in the first place". Absolute word spaghetti from some of these zoomers.

You guys really need to move on from this shtick. It's third tier Scottish football, stop acting like spoiled Barcelona fans.

Who is acting like Barcelona fans ?

If something is shit, sorry but its shit, the Palace v Bournemouth game has been shit, it really isnt that hard to grasp but the play leading up to the penalty in the Airdrie v East Fife game would make anyone's eyes bleed, swear added with a shake of their head, its that bad I have watched it more than once for kicks

A half decent team would have this league sewn up in January but there isnt one, which probably is the only good thing about the league for the masses that there isnt one

Standard is abysmal. Bottom end of the Championship isnt a whole lot better and ive seen better standard games down the park than the one league 2 game ive been to this season. Pretty depressing all told.

Nothing to do with being a Falkirk fan thinking the standard is poor. Any fan of football should be able to tell the standard is poor. And no one is saying there is a gulf between this league and the championship. As that is fucking dreadful as well.
