Good politicians answer, ie, doesn’t answer.

Until UEFA provide some clarity its impossible to give the answer you want.

No trolling intended at all but would Somerset Park be allowed to hold top level league games? I've not been in years but i'd have thought they may have to limit attendance if there was any chance at all of even going up via a play off?

Somerset, whilst admittedly needing some improvement, would be able to host top flight football.

Wouldn't worry though, it's not happening.

I've always said I'd be happy to have reconstruction, but the problem was that successful businesswoman Ann Budge was desperate for it to be a one or two year thing. If it was a guaranteed 5 year minimum and a vote to determine if we change it again (not an automatic, it must go back to 12) then I've got nothing particular against it.

From a purely personal point of view I see this as a win/win. I get the reconstruction I'd prefer, while we all get to laugh at Hearts for wetting the bed so badly they had to bribe the league in order to let them play on.

Which is one reason that the SPFL couldn’t restart season 2019/20 on 1st August or even later. They couldn’t take the chance that the season would finish too late for Scottish clubs to be in European competitions.

Anderson's £4m is now around £2m apparently:

£50,000 each. What a game changer.

I can’t see this getting the votes needed anyway tbh. Seems like the teams are happy for it to stay how it is. 

The league just now is fine. Only issue for me is playing the same teams multiple times but that won’t get fixed unless we move to 16 teams, which is never happening.

Any clubs agreeing to accept a bribe, effectively what is being offered to save Budge's reputation and a humiliating relegation, would be just as despicable as the club whose chairperson brokered the deal. No strings my arse.

Personally I will be very disappointed if Gordon Scott was to reconsider his opposition to Budge's proposal in exchange for £50k (or whatever the correct figure might be).

I always thought it was between 1 and 2 million.

« SunSport understands Anderson is ready to commit around £4.75 million — the equivalent of just over £110,000 per club if split evenly between the league’s 42 members. »

Personally I would prefer if the cash was split to favour those at the bottom end - even if it meant nothing to the Premiership clubs and only started at the Championship.

What's the betting the remaining 2.75m is being held in reserve if Hearts are relegated....

The BBC wording is interesting as he isnt looking for a straight Yes/No but to tell him what the issues are and what would work for those clubs voting against.  It at least implies the SPFL would then try to shoe-horn a solution to then meet those concerns.  Taking the money via Hearts in this scenario is 'slightly' compromising.
