Is Scottish football now completely discredited?

Hearts, Hibs, Celtic and Rangers the last 4 in the Scottish Cup.

Spicy.

I wonder if I can predict that the draw will avoid Hearts /Hibs and a Celtic v Rangers Semi ?

On Scotland football sites they're still deliberating whether the Scotland vs Ukraine World Cup play off match will go ahead, etc.

I think the Ukrainian people have a bigger issue than a game of football.

I'm a Scotland fan, dyed in the wool, but quite frankly, I could not give a jot about the World Cup play offs.

Some people just seem to live in their own ignorant little bubbles. It's strange behaviour from strange individuals.

West Stand BCS.
Kelty Hearts, who were only promoted to the Scottish League Two this season, were yesterday crowned Champions following a 1-0 win at home to Stenhousemuir.

Meanwhile, East Fife are bang on to pass them in the opposite direction and get relegated to Scottish League Two 😢 whilst the Blue Brazil are going to end up in the Lowland League 😐

Fort William 1-2 Keith. Not sure what happened to the rest of his team (Covid?), but Keith's victory surely marks an all-time low for the Fort.

Sorry, I feel sure we must do this gag every year.

Decent Glasgow Derby that, what a job Ange has done at Celtic. It looks like they'll take their title back after one year, maybe a treble to go with it. Great weekend!

Another excellent Glasgow Derby yesterday, Rangers shaded it and it felt like a game they had to win, which just gave them the edge. Cup football is cup football, hopefully Celtic regroup to go on and win the big one. It's great for the game up there to have two competitive Glasgow teams again.

Tonight sees Kilmarnock take on Arbroath in another tale of the 1st v 2nd battles.

If you recall earlier in the thread, I attended an Arbroath home fixture against Kilmarnock where Arbroath were 1st and Kilmarnock 2nd. Roles gave entirely reversed now with Kilmarnock at home and sitting at the top.

It really has been billed as the game that'll likely decide the champions.
A Kilmarnock win will see them win the league - this is the penultimate game of the season and they're 1 point ahead - the win would make them 4 clear with 1 game remaining.
An Arbroath win and its down to the final day.

Arbroath play the current 7th placed side (Morton), with not a lot left for them to play for, at Gayfield (home ground) whilst Kilmarnock have a potential tough away game to Raith who are 5th, 3 points off the final play off spot currently - but again that could all change.

Arbroath promoted to the Scottish Premiership?
Part time Arbroath....
Could they?
End of 2015/16 season they finished 2nd bottom, 7 points clear of East Stirlingshire, of the bottom division (League Two).

A truly ballsy statement make no mistake

I’ve just registered with this site although I’ve been watching the Bees since around 1982 - the days of Joseph, O’Mahoney, Roberts, Hurlock, Kamara, Bowles, Roach and Big Bob Booker!

My other club is Kilmarnock and I was pleasantly surprised to see the interest on here in our promotion-clinching win on Friday.

Great to be back in the Premiership after one season and not just because the Championship is so dire. It was a struggle and we had to splash out to bring in Derek McInnes, Kyle Lafferty and others in January to ensure we went up outright. The play-offs would have been nightmare, ending with a second-leg trip to St Johnstone probably, if we got that far.

I’m glad to see Kristoffer Ajer is so popular at Brentford. He went to Killie on loan from Celtic in 2017 as a raw reserve midfielder on condition that he be converted into a CB.

He was a bit like a fish out of water at first but quickly adapted and was very popular with his mazy dribbles in attack. He showed more commitment and passion than most of our own players too. Celtic seemed pleased with our work!

There used to be a strong connection between Killie and Brentford in the 1950s and 60s, thanks to Malky McDonald.

He played for Brentford from 1946 to 1949 when he left to manage Killie. In 1957, he took over at Brentford until 1965 when he returned to Rugby Park until 1968.

The clubs played six friendlies between 1954 and 1967, four at GP and two testimonials at RP. Killie won three and drew one at GP while Brentford won both at Kilmarnock. Another match at GP in 1956 was postponed.

I wish the friendly rivalry could be renewed now!

Didn't Higgi come from Kilmarnock? If he didn't he should have!

Thats probably more because Arbroath are my "2nd team" having moved up here 3 years ago and my family living here for 20 odd years. I've been going about them lol.
I was at the match at Gayfield a few months back.

In the Championship Killie are promoted and all of the play off places are sorted.
Only one issue left is who will be in the relegation play off place from Ayr United and Dunfermline?
Can not wait till Friday night too find out.


I must get out more.

So if Dunfermline don’t beat Queen of the South on Friday night then they get relegated?
