The SPFL recommendation?

Recommended Posts

Sensible decision from the SoSFL which the SPFL should pay attention to

Both organisations put the decision to a vote.

Unfortunately ourselves, Peterhead and Forfar are getting absolutely screwed. Stranraer less so as they have been abysmal, but why should hearts and thistle escape relegation and not Stranraer. (Before someone claims otherwise it’s a relegation on all but paper).

On the other hand perhaps  Clyde have done well here, given that Stranraer still had a potential 29 points to play for and the resident Stair Parkers on here are convinced they had turned the corner it's quite conceivable to some that they could have overhauled Clyde in the run in.

The spfl though only gave the clubs one option mind you whilst the SSL gave them a number of different options and went with the one with the most votes.

It's clearly not just to save Hearts. If 14/14/16 gets voted through it'll require 75% of clubs to vote for it. Why would all those clubs only care about not relegating Hearts?

What is going to be interesting is how the second division “bloc” react. As they stated they have already agreed to vote as one for a 14/14/14 . If that’s the case I think that scuppers the 75% of the lower leagues requirement.
As an aside why ,when they have members on the restructuring committee and it’s ongoing, do they make public announcements about what way they are voting ? Why not try and influence from within,wait to see recommendation and then make a decision ?

Reports that the preferred option is 14-14-16 with Brora & Kelty Hearts into bottom tier.

 

So not only are Clyde and others relegated to the bottom tier and Cove Rangers not promoted, prize money will be divided by 44 instead of 42.

 

All to save Hearts from one season in the championship.

 

 

 

 

 

Cove will be promoted.  They will be in tier 3 next year instead of the tier 4 this season.

Cove haven't actually won anything so moving to 3 leagues should be acceptable to them.Another story if they had already won L2.Then they could argue about being in the middle tier.But as it stands moving to 3 tiers is the fairest way IMO even if its not perfect and won't please everyone.

That would mean another club goes down the way to accommodate them, where do you get this from?

They are still in the bottom tier of the SPFL, one tier above the highland league and with all the same clubs they played last season, some of whom they beat by cricket scores. I’m not sure that will seem like much of a promotion.

If we change to 3 divisions then the lowest division will be at tier 3, nobody gets relegated.  Even though Cove would still be in the lowest tier, that tier is still at tier 3, where they would have been if they had been promoted under the old 4 division set up.  Simples.  I dont know what club would go down under your thiunking.

Promoted along side Brechin who were fighting relegation all season, sounds fair.

So what option do you suggest then?  Come up with something positive and stop snipping at others comments.

For Clyde etc it will be the equivalent of a relegation even if you don't want to call it that.

14-10-10-10, top 2 in each division promoted and no relegation.

I repeat come up with something positive.  Change has to be made and under this change NO club will be really disadvantaged.

They spend a small fortune to cake walk the league and turns out it’s all for nothing. Pleasing in a way....

I understand your point now, but I think you're playing with words a bit.

There is a huge disadvantage to Clyde, Peterhead, Forfar and Stranraer. There is a big difference in crowds playing the current league 1 teams compared with those in league 2. Prize money will be less too assuming no changes and those clubs would be one relegation away from the LL or HL rather than two.

14-10-10-10 is the fairest way if we need to restructure.

Boring small divisions playing each other four times.  Dark ages footy imo
