Hope this is cool to share on here.

I’ve just started a football blog, just me writing articles on all things Scottish football.

Just started it in the past couple of days so it’s quite bare at the moment but I will be updating it regularly. Please feel free to check it out.

Yes, you’re right. Frustrating but not worth the hassle. I’ve taken them down.

It is a very good start, DaveDave. Perhaps a photo of yourself might personalise the blog a bit more?

The old editor in me couldn't help spotting a few minor grammatical errors. Largely these related to missing commas, capitalisations and so on; something that could be easily addressed by downloading an app like Grammarly which will pick up things that spell check won't.

Keep at it. I have just joined your mailing list.

Thanks for the feedback OzPar. Those sort of grammatical errors have always been a bit of a problem for me. Hopefully I can get the hang of correcting them.

New article out tomorrow at 10am previewing the Scottish Cup 4th round. ⚽️📝

A brilliant analysis of the game, DD. Your reading of the match is much as I interpreted it watching live on Pars TV. I was especially grateful for your comments concerning the players and management that you talked to afterwards. All too often, these things get overlooked by the fans.

I trust your journey back to Arisaig was less stressful than the outward one. My parents retired to a house on the shores of Loch Morar and I became all too familiar with the long trip to Fife by car, but it must be a challenge trying it by train.

Keep up the good work. It is promising to be a fine and interesting blog.

Well done for your long journey and the return to face as well..

It was good but predictable response you got from the players and coaches.

What else could they say really, but it's now time for them to turn their disappointment into results that will make the fans happy, as opposed to feeling sorry for them.
The fans also are human beings with families to go home to and lives to lead outside football.

The aftermath of yesterday's game was and still is muted anger and disappointment. To think that this season, the fans have been accused of not doing enough to support the club and of showing a lack of empathy with the team and individuals associated with the club, is disrespectful to those who have stood loyally by them through this horrible season.

And to think that a lot of that criticism of the support came from the previous manager and the Board is particularly galling.

It is just simply time the team did something to show the same spirit that fans like DAVEDAFC and others represent.

A good read. I was angry yesterday because the players proved they lack that mental toughness on the pitch. They seem like nice guys and I don’t doubt they are trying, but it’s that winning mentality, that little psychological edge that we seem to be missing. We need a couple of “b@5tards” to really push us forward, I think we lack that. One thing you can say for Clark, Aird and Morris, they all had that arrogant streak about them, that little edge of mentality. The guys we have now...I question their quality and their mental toughness. Maybe something the new management team will instill in due course.

Glad however that the players did take some time with you, though as above, their comments are exactly what I’d expect.

Thanks a lot mate. As I said in the article, there’s no doubt in my my mind that the squad needs work. I just feel that getting behind the boys will help improve the situation.

We had more fans at an away game, than the whole crowd at Paisley or Perth, or Inverness.

How much more support does this team need?

Hi Dave

- what exactly was the circumstances of your leaving Dunfermline and joining Livingston?

- clearly you have progressed well, what has been the biggest change you have made?

- why do you think Livingston have been so successful over the last 3 seasons?

- what’s your personal opinion on your clubs new pitch?

Thanks for that Ross, I’ll be sure to ask him those questions. Certainly promises to be an interesting interview.
