Watching Sportscene last night for the first time in a while,i was pleasantly shocked at the standard of some clubs in our supposed elite league.Compare some of these resuts and Jig has a point.

Stranraer 2 Inverness 2

Hibs 2 Raith R. 3

Throw in some from earlier in the season

Stranraer 3 Ross County 2

Killie 0 Hamilton 1

QOS 2 St.Mirren 1

Aberdeen 0 Alloa 0

Celtic 0 Morton 1

Albion R. 1 Motherwell 0

No he was wrong

There's no comparisons to one off cup games it happens everywhere

The FA cup is notorious for it

Watch any SPL game even near the bottom like Partick vs Ross County and look at the standard compared to the teams we play

Charlie Nicholas done a Ross county game on soccer Saturday once and said it was the poorest game he'd watched in years. Said they should've played with a beach ball

That's Scottish football for you it's shite but there's different levels of shite

If the gap isn't that big the full time clubs need to have a serious look at why that is! I think there is a considerable gap though some teams have the ability to raise their game against better opposition where you tend to get more time! Just watching the Dundee utd game just now and it's torture....a few decent technical players but overall very poor and nothing to fear for us if we are at it!

This being my point mate,its just a slightly better level of shite.Our European results this year confirms this.Hibs who contested the past two Scottish Cup Finals were pumped 7- 0 at home to Malmo....

There's a significant gap between full time and part time anyway

I dont think its wise to evaluate Jig's assertion based solely on one set of results in the cup.

The counter argument could be provided if there is not such a gap - then why are some of the lower league clubs not making finals regularly ?

I think what Jig was getting at is, they clubs treat every game aganst Rangers as a cup tie to be honest mate....

There ain't really much of a difference if any with the likes of Partick and Ross county than with Dundee etc in lower league.

The two teams quoted...Stranraer beat Ross County and Partick needed penalties to beat Cowdenbeath.

Each time they lower league teams play us they treat it as a cup tie imo...

Agreed but your doing extremes

Your using Dundee who are top of the first division and using them against the likes of Elgin, Peterhead, Annan etc who us and Jig have faced recently

If you want to say most of the SPL and then Dundee, Hamilton, Falkirk, Raith and maybe Dumbarton then yes there's very little to choose from but to say the rest are on a par with SPL is a joke

Saw that he looked depressed. No wonder though he's used to watching Arsenal games everyweek and he gets told to watch that shower of shite.

:lol:
