Bobby Barr isn't anywhere near the player he was when he was with us.

Currently we have Cadden; Mullin; Knox and Jacobs who can all play on the wing; even before you look at bringing Ogilvie back.

Well it was job done and 3 points gained but it wasn't pretty and Brechin did not make it easy. The heavy pitch cut out silky football and Mr Charleston was intent on blowing his whistle every time a Brechin player went down which they did frequently for the flimsiest of reasons.
Our defence was solid once again and Alexander didn't really have a lot to do. Until the second goal went in though I was worried they might sneak up and grab a goal. They missed a sitter in the dying minutes missing by inches.
I still have to make my mind up about Boyd. He seems a bit greedy trying to do everything himself instead of using his team mates. It's early days though and he's probably trying to impress. Robinson capitalised on a Brechin mistake and took his goal well in a one on one with the goalie, something players often muck up.

So, Scottish Cup next week against revitalised, free spending Falkirk. Having looked at the weather forecast we'll be lucky to get it played unless effort is made to protect the pitch against sub zero temperatures. C'est la vie.

I'd still take Barr, none of them has the speed Barr has. Knox looked pretty direct in an early season game but we've not seen much of him since. Keaghan is more a left sided player, or CM, Barr often switched wings during a game and plays either side, so he'd give us something different, which can't be a bad thing.

Was surprised this morning to see highlights albeit breif of yesterdays game at Brechin on Sky Sports News.Reckon the cameras will keep following them as their the only team in Britain not to have one a single match this season thus far.For me it was a stonewaller of a decision to award us the penalty right in front of the ref and thats without the amber glasses on.Well taken by Halkett though.The second i felt a wee bit fortunate that their player slipped allowing Robertson the chance to finish the game and he took it very well.Seen chances like that missed by us before so well done.Agree with Orco in that hopefully the club will take the nescessery precautions for the Falkirk game due to the Arctic conditions coming our way this week.Cant wait for it.

I remember Keaghan on the right not the left but he can play anywhere across the midfield.

Was that when Barr swapped wings, can always remember Keaghan starting on the left hand side though. Him and Bobby made some great breaks up the pitch to hit teams on the counter. He used to get some stick from a section of Livi fans, and played with his heart on his sleeve by giving it back to them. Laughing

This is all rumours but it does look like Josh Mullin will be leaving us this month, it's following the same pattern as Danny Mullen's departure. I wonder if those I love Bobby Barr shirts are still going about. lol!

*Edit. Or maybe not:


Callum Carson

Seen a few rumours online about Josh Mullin leaving Livingston, I'm told that 'he's going nowhere' by a source at the club this morning.


Those pesky rumours. Laughing

May also be because the SPFL Premiership are on a winter's break. Pity we hadn't more home games these last few weeks, maybe we could've tried some initiative to get Premiership fans along to watch us, like if they produce their season tickets at our reception we'll let them in for a fiver.

Nope, I remember Keaghan on the right all the way back to when the u20's won the title on the artificial pitch behind the stadium. He showed then he was a decent player. When Barr came in he began life on the left but as you point out they struck up a decent understanding, interchanging and double-teaming. They were outstanding that day in Grangemouth with Barr having his best game in a Livi shirt.
