Spartans game

Saturday's cup tie was as exciting as watching paint dry. I actually dozed off briefly in the second half.

I can't believe we had the cheek to charge for that game. Dominic Keane should have refunded everyone's money as an apology for the lack of interest and effort shown by the players.

If we want to progress beyond the last 16 we need to play better than that when we face minnows Spartans.

The romance of the cup has handed Livi the ultimate no-win situation.

If we go through, everyone will say it's expected, and if we go out, it's "the shock of the round."

The media will hype it up in Spartans' favour and no matter what we do, we'll be criticised. I just wish the BBC had opted to screen Spartans v Livi live next month, rather than the bound-to-be-boring Killie v Rangers encounter.
