What's the most "Tin Pot" thing you've seen in the SPFL

You weren't talking about 'fans allowed in or streams going down' though were we?

You are still upset about Dundee having the deciding vote in the end of the lower 3 leagues and not voting the way you wanted.

What way did Hearts vote on the decision to end the league they were in? I forget.

Minter.

Dundee voted twice didn't they, in very dubious circumstances? Maybe that's what I'm annoyed about.

Tinpot though. Imagine gifting your rivals a title and stopping play-offs that could see you promoted. All because.... well no-one knows.

Did you, I must've missed it? Can you explain again? Hearts were bottom, how can you object if they were relegated?

Still not as Tinpot as voting for your own relegation. Fud.

Fair play, Aberdeen have a proud history in Europe under one great manager during a time when the OF and England didn't have the money and draw to take away all other teams' best players. Although I still think Celtic are Scotland's greatest European team for their EC win, followed by D Utd under McLean who were robbed by a referee.

So I'd put Aberdeen 3rd in the list of great Scottish European clubs.

In more recent times though (ie modern football times), what have Aberdeen done?

Hearts got to a UEFA Cup QF and were a whisker away from beating Bayern Munich to book a semifinal against Napil under Alex MacDonald. And Craig Levein made Hearts the first Scottish team to qualify for the Europa League group stages. We've had some good wins in Europe since the Ferguson days. Have you?

You're so cute!!

By far the most tinpot thing any club possibly in history has done has to be Dundee voting to hand a title and promotion to their local rivals and at the same time cancel play-offs that could have seen themselves get promoted AND vote to demote a team with much bigger resources into their league to make it harder for them to get promoted the following season. Tinpot doesn't even begin to describe it.

 I think a club pushing to get the goal difference rule brought in that then cost them the title in 86 is more tinpot.

What's even better is the team that beat them on the last day in 86 also beat them 7-1 in 65 which fucked their goal average and cost them another title.

demoting teams after 3/4 of a season in a pandemic into leagues that might not play - totally fine.

Not sure this is accurate.

I was sure you had 5 or 6 games to go or something like that?

You get thicker by the day...................

Anyone with half a brain cell would put Celtic, Aberdeen and Rangers - in that order - as the 3 most successful Scottish sides in Europe because they got their hands on a trophy (or 2 in Aberdeens case).

What D Utd did under McLean was incredible for a club that size. Robbed of a potential European Cup as well.

I remembered it was 7 games to go.... still, all water under the bridge now. Who cares about these insignificant pedantic details

I must have missed them, like everyone else. Since Aberdeen's Ferguson days in individual matches Hearts have beaten Bologna, Bayern, Braga, Basel, Stuttgart, Athletico Madrid, and Bordeaux, and have drawn away with Spurs and Liverpool. Aberdeen's best results in the same period have been home draws against Burnley and Bayern.

You really went there. You just spent 3 years trying to get promotion with D Utd above you 🤣
