Watching Sportscene on iPlayer and crowd at Kilmarnock is massive

These diddy teams are a disgrace.
Empty stands and seats against the sooon burners.
How dare such irrelevant bodies have a say over how football is run.
Plastic pitches and players who play agricultural football too....
And people have the cheek to question why TV companies give Scottish football f.uck all money.

The game and the set up is a joke - and no-one is even remotely trying to improve things.

I struggle with how they lay out and place people as well.

Surely just fill these diddy stadiums from front to back.

Massive empty spaces just makes it look even more laughable. Condense then into selected areas.

Ticket prices are also a joke. £27 for Killie v Rangers.

That’s laughable.

You can get a season ticket for Bayern Munich for 4x that price. :-0

Scottish footy only got a TV deal when they thought we were back. True.

Care to elobarate on whats embarrassing?
It’s embarrassing how we ‘support’ our team in 95% of our home matches. Including the one just past.

How to make friends and influence people

part 1: criticise your fellow supporters
I really couldn’t care less about making any friends I simply tell the truth and if that’s enough to burst folks bubbles then so be it.

Far too many are delusional when it comes to our own support.

We literally consistently get on our teams back when they need us most. It’s all good turning up but if you’re just gonna make it uncomfortable for our own players we’d be as well staying on the couch.

People might be happy to gloss over the fact we very rarely get behind our team when they truly need us due to the fact we always turn up in big numbers but there’s much more to it for me.

Just my opinion but I beleive it’s based on fact.

Saw the highlights of a Livi game towards the end of last season and wondered what they had done to get a game played behind closed doors.

Crowd must have been around a hundred.

It's never been and will never be any different.
No point in working yourself into a lather.

Doncaster is working on a deal. At his current work rate he will be lucky to have deals that cover his salary. On a side issue, are we going to cover our costs, taking part in the Caramel Wafer Cup? The sticky ball has worked a treat. Someone is taking the piss.

Scotland is a small country. I really don't understand why people think we should have a league comparable to the EPL or Bundesliga. Is this part of the weird 'wha's like us' Scottish psyche?

It's a small country with a small fan base. Two huge clubs, 3 or 4 average sized ones, the rest fighting for the scraps. The distribution really is what you would expect.

Don’t give SC viewing figures, YouTube and SPFL highlights package, good thing is you don’t have to put up with their drivel, and hopefully some time puts the reptiles out a job!

We can look forward to next Saturday's El Classico between Livingston and Aberdeen on el plastico at the spaghettihad stadium,it's sure to be a sell out.A game played between two teams who love to play expansive football and entertain the fans.

You could have more fun sitting in a dentist's chair having a root canal.

That is highly amusing but sadly it’s really accurate.
When you think about it it’s hard to imagine and more cheapskate shoddy product than what is served up by SPFL.

7 of the 12 clubs have average 4 figure attendances, from 3-7k, and those attendances are boosted by us and the filth attending at least twice a season.

It's time these clubs drastically overhauled their entiring ticketing strategies.

Clubs struggling with attendances should be looking at:
Reducing the overall ticket prices to encourage attendance
Offers for kids and concessions - £1 kids for example.

In conjuction with this these clubs should focus on filling parts of the ground that are on TV the most to increase the spectacle.

The results wouldnt be overnight but in a few years you'd have new fans invested in the clubs and atmospheres will improve.

Genuinely, what else do you expect them to do?

Do you realise that one of the reasons that teams like Killie and St Johnstone get low attendances is because the football support in this country is concentrated to two teams?

Moaning about the attendances and style of football at clubs where the players are on a pittance, the fans have more appealing options and there is historically limited success is the calling card of a modern football fan totally dismissive and contemptuous of anything that exists outside of the elite. It's snobbery, pure and simple.

As long as the current set-up benefits Celtc, the status quo will remain.

Livingston have never had a huge support and never will.

I genuinely don't understand the anger on this thread.
Rangers fans could easily have bought the tickets and the club could’ve made cash. Instead we are obliged to give a club tickets we know that they won’t sell. That’s frustrating.

Are Livingston not entitled to have some supporters there, however limited?

Should everything revolve around the demand of Rangers and Celtic?

Were Kilmarnock one of these teams that were forced to build a 10,000 all seater like Falkirk?

You see teams like them, Dunfermliine, Livingston and more never able to fill their huge (in comparison to their fan base) grounds. It was one of the most stupid rules of all time and if I remember correctly it was only brought in at the last minute to save Aberdeen from relegation.

Something else to blame on our wonderful football authorities up here. I am sure Scottish football has the highest or one of the highest amount of punters per population going to games as well, it's just being managed all wrong.
