  1. And Thistle......................I would accept that life was definitely in the post-Covid, post-Brexit phase if that happened and just giggle uncontrollably.
  2. I hope they spent a fortune on hundreds of Philadelphia lawyers.
  3. Well whatever it was called in 1974-75 then when they did the split to 10 teams instead of 18.
  4. I was hoping it wasn't a one-off, but the beginning of something bright and shiny
  5. Yes, you are. I think of the film Sliding Doors - where would we be now had we gotten a European run. Finances would have been very different, maybe attracted better players and crucially not been caught below the cut-off for the SPL in 1974, thereby maintaining our place in the top 10 at the time. Cue a comment about my auntie and balls.
  6. The former. We were deemed to be a Glasgow team and our place was given to Dundee IIRC. It was downhill thereafter 😪 Clyde finished third, which is their highest ever league placing. Clyde did not qualify for Europe, however, because Rangers finished second and took the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup place.

  7. I'm sure I'll regret asking this- but if we have 40 players a season moving to the 'best league in the world' and its feeders then why are we not capping some quality players and winning internationals? 40 a season would mean c 100+ playing down there at any one time plus the best of what is left up here, so where are they all at the Euros and WC?
  8. No, it isn't. I can see a frigate and a battleship just heading into the Firth of Clyde as we speak!🚢
  9. A simple answer that seemed to elude all involved as they clearly did not come up with a proposal that did not see someone financially worse off. Thing is, with the exception of the teams that happened to be bottom of their respective divisions when the music stopped, why should any other club suffer any financial penalty? I am genuinely intrigued as to how you answer that question?
  10. Found this earlier today in an old scrapbook in the loft. Same arguments then as now.
