    Great article, although the aggregate score between us and Sturm Graz was actually 8-6 (5-2 to SG away and 4-3 to Livi at home) :)

  2. Interesting story. Clubs face very similar fate’s i all leagues as problems are universal

  3. That Livingston were the only full-time club in either the Second or Third divisions and that they’re still spending comfortably beyond their means has nothing to do with this purported rags-to-riches tale, of course.

    Bollan has done a credible job returning Livi to the First in the expected time frame, but it would have been a remarkable upset for them to have failed to have done so given their budget.

    When Livi are competing for promotion while budgeting within their means they may earn back a little respect (as did Dundee following their superb run of form post-administration). Until then it’s just history looking to repeat itself.
