Good riddance to Livingston’s concrete carpet

Hopefully it’s now good riddance to Livingston’s concrete carpet, but we will miss their refreshing ticket generosity…

Need a minor miracle

Not only was our comfortable 3-0 Easter Sunday win in West Lothian a big boost in our title chances, it also further condemned Livingston Football Club a step closer to dropping into the Championship.

David Martindale’s side now need a minor miracle to stay in the top flight with eleventh placed Ross County ten points ahead of them with a much better goal difference.

Monstrosity of a football surface

I’ve nothing against Livingston personally, despite their dreadful draconian tactics. But like everyone else I’ll be glad to see the back of their monstrosity of a football surface.

It’s a hindrance and embarrassment to our game in Scotland, and such surfaces have no place in top flight football. Football is all about the product on the pitch and surfaces such as the one at the Tony Macaroni arena does nothing to enhance our game, not to mention it puts players at risk of injury.

Kilmarnock reverting to grass 

Kilmarnock of course have one, but thankfully the Ayrshire club have made plans to revert to grass the season after next. So having one less in the top flight will only benefit our game.

The only thing downside about the impending relegation of Livingston is their refreshing and generous approach when it comes to allocating tickets amongst away supporters.

That was evident yesterday when the Celtic supporters took up the vast majority of the Tony Macaroni Arena.

Other clubs in the top flight have cut their noses off despite their faces when it comes to the big two, by denying extra tickets despite an embarrassing sight of empty seats.

So Livingston should be applauded in that regard as they know that by allowing seats to be filled it makes them more cash and makes our game look better to a watching audience. Hopefully if and when they return to the Scottish Premiership they will have had a change of mind regarding that horrible surface and replace it with grass.
