  1. When the call was made I had no beef with Celtic being crowned, they were comfortably ahead, but did think it was incredibly unfair on Partick, Hearts and Stranraer in that order as well as Brora/Kelty. I genuinely expected the majority of Scottish football fans to be incensed at this injustice BUT in actual fact the vast majority of feedback on P&B and Twitter has been "Ha Ha we fucking hate Hearts...get doon!!".
  2. I was looking at the number of players out of contract this season (mostly end of May, some end of June) and was surprised at the gap between both ends of the spectrum. On the face of it you would think, that in terms of clubs surviving, their current wage bill could drop significantly BUT they then face a potential difficulty in recruiting players for a new season. What do you think of your clubs situation compared to other teams? Team Squad Out of Contract Kilmarnock 22 17 Hamilton 25 19 Motherwell 24 13 Ross County 24 13 St Mirren 25 13 St Johnstone 23 11 Livingston 26 10 Hibernian 24 07 Celtic 31 07 Rangers 27 06 Aberdeen 23 02
  3. Livingston football club write off £200,000 of loans by having them converted into shares along with a wee cash injection top in the form of new shares issued for cash.
  4. The point is that next season any one of the other teams could finish 3rd or last, it's not a foregone conclusion.
  5. It's hard not to wonder what discussions have taken place privately...
  6. ..and you'd have 12 clubs fighting for 3rd place instead of just 10 currently. That's even greater competition!
  7. I assumed that was seen as the ONLY possibility of getting the Glasgow clubs to agree?
  8. In what ways do you believe it would weaken the premiership?
  9. It's boring for fans that go home and away! One trip to each team each year (excluding cups obviously) would make it more exciting for travelling fans of the other 11 clubs. They currently only exist to give Celtic a platform to win everything and play in Europe. Rivalries would be enhanced and even in derbies I think only having one chance to beat your rivals home or away in a season would give the games more prestige.
  10. Ken Ferguson, chairman of [Club 42] Brechin City and a member of the 9 man SPFL board has indicated he got support for a special clause that meant any decision they make will ensure that Brechin can not face ANY possibility of relegation. Only kidding
  11. Every club nominates 1 squad member to take part in a revamped version of Superstars!
  12. Was Iain diack not appointed last week !!! He [Diack] was appointed manager of East Kilbride Thistle Juniors.
  13. Has Aitken been out of the game for 18 months? I'd imagine he's really keen to get back in. IF Booth had been trying to get a gig in the men's game it would be a shame if his achievements at Glasgow City haven't worked in his favour.
  14. "Junior football supremos in Lanarkshire..." WHO is in overall charge of the Lanarkshire Junior Football Association?
  15. I like a high turnover of officials as it means the bigger clubs can't form cosy relationships with them and they can't keep blaming the same handful of guys every time they lose a match
  16. Can your gran play in the middle of a back 3? Maybe...she's GRANt Hanley
  17. Ha Ha. Putting my gran in goals for you would've been a better recipe than paying Kevin Fucking Kyle 8 grand a week BUT my point still stands.
  18. You wouldn't have gotten out of 'the jellytots league' with a team of youngsters, they'd have been snapped like twigs week after week no matter how 'talented' they might have been.
  19. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIOLOQk9PZQ Henrik Larsson on staying loyal to Celtic and his Man Utd regret! | Transfer Talk Podcast
  20. I wasn't aware just how much of a financial superiority PSG had over the other teams in France!
  21. It's probably for the best. I accept that the circumstances were different BUT when Stuart Malcolm became interim manager following Brian Kerr's exit he basically made the job his own by keeping performance levels high and getting positive results. You can say what you like about Jim and Dean's potential but the bottom line is they haven't.
