Enjoying The Start Of The Season

Date: 10th August 2021

The Scottish football season has kicked off and it already looks set to be an exciting year ahead for our game. 

Rangers and Celtic are always going to be classed as favourites for the Premiership title but both Glasgow sides have recorded losses in their opening two games. Proving that they won’t be unbeatable forces this term. 

Hearts won promotion into the top flight and have started with two wins out of two, beating Celtic and St Mirren. 

Fellow Edinburgh side Hibs have also hit maximum points as they sit top of the league with a superior goal difference, while Aberdeen are the only other club in the Premiership to secure two victories in their first two games. 

Only Livingston have failed to pick up a point in the opening set of futures. Livi did look brighter against The Dons last weekend, so I don’t expect them to sit on zero points for much longer. 

Here’s hoping that we can have a very tight league table for the rest of the campaign. 

In the Championship, newly promoted Partick Thistle lead the way on goal difference from Kilmarnock and Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Again only one side (Queen of the South) has so far failed to record a point. I think this could really end up being the closest league within our professional set-up this season. 

Every team in League One has managed to pick up at least a point, with no side managing to collect maximum points. In just ten games the league has seen a whopping twenty nine goals scored.  

While in League Two, another promoted club in Kelty Hearts leads the way as they and Forfar Athletic have an unblemished records thus far. Poor Edinburgh City languish at the bottom with no points and no goals! 

It has been fantastic to go on social media and see so many fans on there posting positive experiences of being back in the stands! We are seeing wonderful posts on pies, new songs and people declaring love for new heroes. 

More and more clubs are announcing that capacities are expected to go back to normal within the coming weeks and that has again boosted the morale of every fan in the country! 

It is a crucial week for our clubs in Europe, with all of them still in with a decent chance of making it into the next round. So good luck to each and everyone of them. 

I believe there’s a real feel good factor surrounding the Scottish game at the moment and at pretty much every level. I really hope that feeling is here to stay! 

To all the fans out there – Keep posting all the positive stuff you are witnessing within our game at the moment as it is truly making it a special time for Scottish football.
