And, you know, the fact that over 75% of the season had been played.

"We had no say in our relegation", says the team marooned at the bottom of the table after 7 months of a 8 month season.

The fact they had a game in hand makes it deeply unfair regardless if they've been shite or not.

Makes it even better, IMO.

It sure does. Especially for us as we were certain to finish bottom.

Listening to Sportsound for the time in forever and apparently we (ICT) have accused the SPFL of bullying ourselves and other teams. I hadn't seen anything about this... :unsure:

Wondered how long it would take yous to kick up a fuss after reconstruction didn't get yous (wrongly) promoted.

Your brothers from Glasgow will be proud.

I've had a bit more sympathy for Partick Thistle than any of the others affected by it, but that moaning statement is quite funny. It also seems little short of moronic to publish a letter that includes this paragraph:

Quote

Firstly, this is private correspondence that we will not be making public. I would hope you would ensure that this is respected by the SPFL and its PR advisers. We have no wish to add to the ongoing divisive and increasingly distasteful debate being played out in the media.  It damages Scottish football and your recent letters, regrettably, have added to the perception of Scottish football being at war.

The Partick Thistle situation is a tough one.

I have a soft spot for them, but I hate Ian McCall, so, on balance, I will enjoy them being relegated "unfairly".

Luckily for them that was taken in to account and they used points per game.

That doesn't make a difference. They'd have had an extra game to influence that.

The game in hand is a bit of red herring tbh. PPG does address that to a degree. Theres no guarantee that Partick would have won it and they have lost an opportunity. However, lots of teams lost an opportunity in one way or another.

You often hear managers say "I'd rather have the points on the board" and so its proved in the most deadly fashion here!

Effectively now, the season has been declared finished for Hearts, Partick, Stranraer, Cove, Raith, United and Celtic, but Null and Void for every other club as there’s no play offs.

I think Rangers,Aberdeen and Motherwell have all been awarded European places as well.

So in all likelihood that will be Hearts Championship next season with the rest of us fighting for a play off spot.
The only plus will be for much needed income in that they will bring big away supports.

Until Corona virus strikes again with another lock down and abandoned season.

Unless Hearts fans decide to boycott the championship clubs that voted to end the season

If they’re stupid enough to do this I would hope fans of all the other clubs would reciprocate.

That way the other clubs would miss out on away receipts one game in ten and Hearts would miss out every game.

If Hearts fans want to boycott every club that voted for their own interests then they should be boycotting Tynecastle as well.
