Years in bottom division 1961-2012. Bear in mind here the length of time some clubs have been in the league. For instance both Annan and St Johnstone have spent the same number of seasons in the lowest division but whereas Annan's represents 100% of their league existence, St Johnstone's is less than 8% of the past 51 seasons and two of their four seasons were promotion-winning ones. Kilmarnock and Third Lanark both have two seasons but while Killie's is less than 4% and saw promotions in both, Thirds' is one-third of their final six seasons.

The seasons for Airdrieonians, Kilmarnock, Motherwell and Partick Thistle were all promotion winning ones. Longest spell in the bottom flight is East Stirlingshire who have spent the last thirty years at this level since relegation from the 1st division in 1982. They are the only club to have spent all 18 seasons of the 3rd division's existence playing at that level. Next are Montrose, in the bottom division since 1996. All of Annan Athletic's and Elgin City's league seasons have been in the bottom division.

League Cup Home Averages 1946-2012
My main observation here is that these are heavily skewed towards the era of bigger crowds in the immediate post-war period when most clubs were guaranteed three home games per season. That was the case until 1976-77 and again in the early 1980s. Since then it has been possible to go sevetal years without playing a home game, thus, unlike the league, it takes longer for averages to be reduced.

League Cup Neutral Averages 1946-2012. This includes finals, semis & play-offs but NOT matches where the designated home team has moved the match to a different venue on grounds of safety/increased capacity. Nor does it include semis or finals which were ostensibly neutral but in which the resident home team was one of the participants - e.g. Rangers-Celtic games while Hampden was being reconstructed and the all-Dundee final of 1980-81.
