Steady on lads. 

Given that the SFA have put a spoke in the wheels each of the last two years(adding floodlights then removing voting rights) I wouldn't be getting excited until there is official confirmation your licence is being granted.

I think to a degree, most BU fans are holding back a little until the fat lady is singing.

I can't wait to hear her dulcet tones. I just have a slightly bad feeling about this. For all Rod Petrie's talk of room for 200 members the SFA haven't been welcoming at all to new entrants.

I said more or less the same thing to a pal on WhatsApp yesterday. Looking promising re the LL’s stance, but would it be at all surprising if the SFA were to burst the baw?

Yes roadblocks aplenty and all require different bits of paper all in the right order to gain entry.

To wait till June is farcical. If everything is in order get it rubber stamped and move on.

The cynic in me thinks waiting till June is intentional, as it removes the time to remedy/challenge whatever new obstacle is being created.

There was no reason not to rubber stamp the 6 applicants in April as planned, who had all passed the licence board audit in February as required. The licence wouldn't have been granted till June had they taken the two minutes do it anyway.

The optics (and opportunity for challenge) of saying yes in April then no in June aren't as manageable as saying "delayed" in April then changing the terms and saying no/reduced membership in June.

We'll see I guess, but no one will be surprised if it suddenly goes south next month for some/all of the applicants.

It was no different to last year when there were clubs due to be rubber stamped but they passed things onto the AGM to become official.

I'm going to assume this is just a similar situation where due to COVID19 there are things that they are going to prioritise over this matter. Last year i'm sure by now there was news over the voting rights motion. I would think if there was something sinister around licencing then the gossip would of done the rounds by now.

I hope you're right.

But given the two years worth of effort in getting to this point and what we've seen of the games governance in that time, I'm preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.

I'd rather be pleasantly surprised in June, than taken by surprise.

Its not a fun place to be, and its the same sort of worry that those clubs had to sit through last year. I would like to think its only happened this year due to the COVID19 situation.
