    What will you miss about the wee grounds of the Championship?

    The "Wasp-burgers" at Alloa? The solitary, household kettle for hot drinks at Cowdenbeath?

    Steak bridies at East End Park.

    That game up at Cowdenbeath a couple of Novembers ago will never leave me, peeing with rain and having to wait on the kettle to boil to get a hot drink 😂

    I'll certainly not miss some of the rotten football on display.

    Saying that, I'm hoping for Forfar away in a cup as I have done for a number of years as I'd like some Forfar Bridies.

    Is is Stephens that does them? Sell them at the farm shop in Musselburgh and they are absolutely superb.

    Not stadium related but I'll miss being in a title race. It's quite fun.

    Nothing, absolutely nothing.

    However, seeing Houstons face when Keatings smashed that ball in late on, will never forget that, but thats it..

    That is a very good point. I really hope next season unravels with some kind of battle for 'league territory'. Hopefully a Europa League space.

    This will be the biggest miss, We've probably taken the 3pm saturday starts for granted over the last few seasons but we can look forward to last minute re scheduling of our matches and sunday 12.15 kick offs when we go up.

    They don't know they're born today!!!


    I'd miss the 20th Century.....

    I'll miss the honesty. Fans of smaller clubs are proper football fans who support their local team for reasons other than glory, bigotry or fashion. IMO smaller teams should be given much more financial support by Gov or the richer clubs ( esp in England) as they form the heart of communities and help give towns identity.

    Its been nice to experience some grounds i'd never been to before but other than that nothing. So glad we are just about to leave this league, we should never have fallen so far in the first place but many wrongs have been corrected now and lets hope we never see ourselves down here again.

    **** all.

    I barely went to any away games in any case so there isn't much to miss.

    And Partick Thistle and Inverness.

    And Hamilton!

    Edit: Forgot Hamilton only had two stands.

    Standing in designated standing areas as opposed to scraping your shins on the back of a plastic seat.

    If anything the last three years have really broadened my horizons as to why we should have a bigger premier league.. Falkirk, Morton, Dundee United and Dunfermline would all add to the top flight. Those teams mentioned plus Hibs and take away the biggest tinpot club going from the top tier - Hamilton - would be a brilliant top 16.

    Ease of travel and parking and the pies.

    Ayr's Boaby Pie was a rare treat.

    Can't agree with this. How are you judging honesty? Some of grounds we've visited and their fans have been vile. There chants about homophobia, shouts of racism and implying we are junkies hardly puts them in a good light. As for govt money, surely money can be spent on better things that football clubs. If you want to give towns an identity then the government should be spending money on creating jobs and housing to build communities not on football clubs.
    As for supporting local teams, why? The Hibs support comes from all over Scotland predominantly Edinburgh but whose who move away for work or family reasons must change their allegiance due to their location. Fans pick their team for a variety of reasons, location is just one.
