 No easy games in division one.

When will this rubbish stop?
No easy games in the Premiership?
No easy games in the Championship?
No easy games in division one now?

I do however have in on good authority that there are a few easy games to be had in the Lumphinnans Seventh Division(North)!

There isn`t a ground in Scotland which isn`t `a hard place to come`.

Even harder once the transfer window "slams" shut

😃 It`s definitely a footballing clichè, but that doesn`t mean it`s rubbish - just overused.

It`s actually mostly true since most teams in relatively small leagues are of similar ability. The exception to the rule is the Scottish Premiership, where two teams have quite a lot of easy games actually, because their financial muscle dwarfs that of the other 10.

Exactly GG. It`s not as if you`re playing in League 1 with a team of Premier League players.

We have just come from tier two versus a team who are not long in any tier at all.
If we cannot beat them we deserve to be where we are.

We deserve to be where we are whether we beat them or not!

I`m struggling to understand the logic underlying your conclusion, Lassodie. Are you saying that a team`s past is relevant in the present day? That the relatively new additions to the SPFL should be getting stuffed by the long established clubs, every week?

Somebody forgot to tell the likes of ICT and Ross Co. They`ve had the brass neck to not only spend many of their league season`s in the top flight, but also to claim a national trophy. And the likes of Kelty and Cove haven`t performed too shabbily since they were admitted. Bonnyrigg Rose appear to be following their lead, too.

The other side of the coin is that those clubs which have lost their league status in recent years haven`t been good enough to win it back. Clubs like Cowdenbeath, East Stirlingshire, Berwick and Berwick had amassed more than a couple of centuries in total in the Scottish League, but may never make it back.

It’s not Edinburgh City’s fault that they are in the same tier as us.
