PELE Posted March 19 Share Posted March 19 4 minutes ago, cowdenbeath said: I've always said the LL will get better with the ex junior clubs eventually filtering up and should attract more away fans to games which is good for everyone. I'm probably one of the few of our fans who has watched it on a regular on off basis over the years along with the other non leagues and knew what we were getting into, it seems like its been a bit of a culture shock for those who didn't know much about it. I wouldn't disrespect any club I quite admire how the Strollers for example have managed to be a top end side despite a small fanbase and income - I would put it down to having a good manager who knows this level inside out. The League isn't perfect and they shot themselves in the foot with the "one season" B teams which was never going to be the case but we just have to get over it. I'm not keen on them being there but 2 of our 3 highest crowds have been against them. The fixture list can be annoying with the free cup weeks but I suppose the best way to overcome that would be not to get knocked out of them! We have however managed to fit rearranged games on some of the dates so it has been better recently. Re the shared gates for the League cup yes we have the cost of a bus to Berwick but the home sides have the costs of hosting a game which would produce little income if you played someone with little or no traveling support. At the end of the day our league position is down to us no one else. Yeah. With the way the set-up is just now, it was always going to be a nightmare dropping out of League 2 and almost impossible to get back up without lots of money. I thought Cove were going to relegate us and had almost accepted that we were up the proverbial creek, but we survived for a little while longer. Even if we had kept the same team as last season I still don't think we would have been near winning this league. Although I think it is not as tough this season as it usually is. Normally if you lose more than a few games, then your chances of winning the league are done. As expected, it is only likely to get more difficult as well. If we don't dramatically improve, we will be one of the favourites for the drop next season. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
