Think realistically uefa have to lead the way on this. If they want the season to mean anything the top two teams should move up and no relegation. This would definently be the least controversial outcome. Definently won’t be no football before players contracts run out in May. Add in all the loan players and teams squads will look a whole lot different if it was concluded after late May. Just hope that all teams manage to survive as no team deserves to go under due to circumstances way out their control. However having said al that don’t hold your breath on some crazy decision by the blazers at the wheel of Scottish football.

SPFL rules are pretty clear that whoever is too when the music stops are champions. So Rovers will win the league and go up, but everything else is less straightforward. 

You can't just promote the second places teams, it's daft.  If anything like that is to happen, everyone who would have qualified for playoffs should go up.

16 (keep split)

10

10

10 or north south

Just for one year if necessary, but that's the only 'no losers' scenario imo

Was sitting the other day working out some stuff for work and thought I would work out the plan for what to do going forward.

Thought about a full change
14 team leagues x 3
Then the Highland and lowland.
Then the Eos, wos, sos etc

Do a 7 team split half way through season so after 26 games (home and away) so top 7 play each other 2 times and bottom 7 play each other 2 times (home and away). As I noticed Michael Stewart says it's contractual for old firm....

Top 2 automatically go up a league like English leagues.
Can do the play offs like we do currently or have a 3rd v 12th in league above play off "final" only.

Sound pretty good to me sir. Probably too simple and straightforward to be adopted !

Yup and as there is an extra 4 match days needed with 40 games means that the 4 midweek games needed someone takes a turn each week to sit a game out therefore not tiring the teams out as many are part time

I knew you’d be back wee one soon as the schools were shut.

The prospect of Rovers winning the flag and leaving you alone in the seaside league is clearly eating you up. I see  Mr Young has even devised a cunning ploy to rejig the leagues too, will let’s face it it’s the only way EFFC would ever Manage to get promoted. 
 

Having said that I’d buy into the idea of those bigger leagues in a heartbeat but I’d doubt others will and it’s their votes that count not ours, they’d see it as too much of a return to the system that they didn’t like before.

Most clubs will be desperate for some kind of update and clarity, and the problem is nobody has any idea how long this situation will last. 

My totally uninformed gut feeling is....

- The league won't be finished 'naturally'. Would cause chaos trying to structure next season, especially if we are looking at 6 months minimum before we can even think about football again. 

- I don't think the new season will start with the same teams in the same leagues. I think either they will call the leagues as is, or put some kind of reconstruction in place. I'd guess they will try and honour the relatively cut and dried Championship and League 2 title races in some creative fashion whilst trying not to relegate anyone. Still leaves the question of Premiership title though, which will be very interesting. 

That said, I wouldn't be surprised to see us copy whatever England do. 

It would be good to see some clarity, and to actually have something to work towards.  Granted this is an absolutely mental and unprecedented situation, but the chat about the same things over and over in the media is a bit tiresome. 

I must say, I'd even be delighted if in 6 months time I'm watching the Rovers still jobbing around this league to be honest.  Just hope we all still have our respective clubs to watch when this is all over. I guess the reassuring thing is almost every club is in the same boat.

What with the Deputy Chief Medical officer saying, yesterday, that it could be 6 months before normality resumes.

The very real prospect of season 2019/2020 just being binned & us starting again from afresh in the late Summer/Autumn looks increasing more likely.

Harsh when 3 of our 4 leagues are forgone conclusions.

Thief...see page one...

“Take current positions, convert to 3 x 14 next year. One full round versus all for 26 games, then a full round versus your “half” of the table, another 12 games. 19 total home games. HL/LL get no promotion this year, but will be two chances starting next year.

Starting next year, promote #1 and 2, #3-5 playoff with #12 above, #13-14 relegated and (as noted) #12 playoff. On the bottom of the third league, #14 plays HL/LL winner with best record, #13 plays the other.”

 

...but, seriously, about the worst loser of this is Clyde, who will likely move up next year, and the HL/LL teams that will get two spots doing forward.

Haha never noticed that mate. It's by far the best idea to go forward

First decent post on here, Scottish Football is run primarily by the Glasgow two, coupled with these unprecedented times, all the therapeutic dreams of two up and all the other stuff is just nonsense 

My opinion is that the only option is to forget what has happened this season.

Forget any reconstruction, this season will be “ lost” and only waiting on the length of lockdown to see when the new season starts, this looks like well into the Autumn. For consolations 

Winners - Hearts Partick Stranraer Brechin

Losers - Celtic Dundee Utd Cove

The antibody test might change things. If we can test to see if folk have had it and now have immunity, you might find that FAs try and get some controlled games behind closed doors once teams have been thoroughly tested. I would agree it's unlikely we have open matches before August though.

This looks a great solution, sadly the bigoted arsecheeks are firmly opposed to any 14 or bigger team leagues, so it won't happen.
