We Are Top of the League...Eek!

The last time Livingston were top of Scottish Division 1 we lost the game but had paraded the Division 1 trophy on the same day. Saturday saw the team once more on top following a 2-1 win away at Dunfermline with an absolutely suplime solo second goal from Mister Leigh. this together with defeats for Partick Thistle at home to Ross County courtesy of ex-Livi striker Mister Steven Craig, and defeat for the Dee on their trip to Dumfries and Queen of the South.

dizzying heights being at the top, everyone will be gunning for us, but apart from the opening day of tyhe league campaign defeat away to St. Johnston the Livi Lions have be unbeaten in all three competitions so far. Admittedly being taken to extra time by East Stirling was possibly the most heart in mouth occasion that record was almost broken. but the Italian job to reinstate Livi to the top flight seems well on course so far even the media are using phrases like 'in form" and "impressive" when talking about Livi words that have rarely been used since entering adminstration in 2004.

    thanks for your comment on my blog, ever so slightly smug as it was! (I'd have been the same were the boot on the other foot!). I suppose, like me, you have to enjoy those moments of glory when they come when you follow a team whose fortunes could best be described as mixed!


  2. Indeed Ewan, indeed. However, being top is almost as scary as being tenth in this division.
