Oh god!! Folk really thinking Donald Findlay dismantled the legal argument? He man was all over the shop. Without any irony, he said that Brechin deserved to stay up as they could’ve won the play-off game.. That logic for some reason couldn’t be applied to Thistle, Hearts and Stranraer!!

Don’t think I’d want him defending me in a court these days. 

Carry on lads. 

 

Yes that logic doesn't apply for the latter 3 teams you mention simply because they were all in relegation slots where as Brechin were in a play off slot.

I'm betting on an SPFL statement within the next 24 hours of the 26 clubs still confident they can stick this out. If none forthcoming you know for certain there’s panic & a split. 

Only the mind of a desperado would think this way. Why would the SPFL show their hand by issuing a statement, especially if they think Hearts have no case.

Well the difference is that Thistle, Hearts and Stranraer had a play off position available, if only they weren't even worse than team already occupying it, so were in the automatic demotion position.

Dundee could lose £50m a season for a decade and still find a way out of it.
We're Dundee - we do what we want to.

Because a lot of your posts, and your signature, are about Livingston and though unflattering I thought it could just be self-deprecating. You have also indicated you support Meadowbank Thistle, which doesn't exist as far as I'm aware - a Google search resulted in Livingston FC as the top search result, so I wondered if you were being nostalgic. 

"Destroyed my club" would suggest that he knows Meadowbank Thistle don't exist any more.  Most ex supporters refuse to acknowledge that Livingston and Meadowbank are the same team, despite what fucking Wikipedia says (the tossers merged the Meadowbank and Livingston articles, but to this day they have different articles for Wimbledon FC and MK Dons).

Gordon is nostalgic, because he hasn't found another team to support since Thistle went pop.  I have, and I haven't any problem with Livingston these days.

As our learned friend @khalidonianb above points out, Brechin were in a playoff spot. Brora and Kelty would have had to playoff against each other in order to play Brechin.

Who should have won that?

I presume you are aware that no club in a relegation or promotion playoff spot actually played those games?

In any division?

So why should Brechin have gone down Tom?

 

p.s. fud

Nope, although Brora were a ballhair from it 
It’s the “SPFL is a closed shop” hyperbole  from the Brora chairman today that’s annoyed me 
Edinburgh City & Cove have demonstrably proved that’s not the case 

I fully expect the Chairmen of the teams in the three tier 5 leagues to keep banging that drum until there is automatic promotion/relegation between tiers 4 and 5.

That’s fair enough, I think there should be automatic promotion & relegation at that level

The point is that wasn’t the structure in place this season

A point missed by Tom English: both Brora and Kelty could also have been overhauled in their respective leagues had the Covid19 crisis not struck. Brora were well ahead but, unlikely though it may have been, four other sides could have caught them. Bonnyrigg Rose could have overtaken Kelty. 

However, these Leagues were called, Brora and Kelty were beneficiaries and the other clubs wished them well. 

I doubt the guys in the BBC studios, including English, have had a cursory glance at these leagues, if even that.

That'll be why you've got 'billionaire Tim Keyes picking up the bill' and yet are still duking it out with Arbroath M8.

For the avoidance of doubt, I hate them because they destroyed my club moved to Livingston.

FTFY.

Doesn't get his facts right either, in both cases.

Not getting into our demotion from the 2nd tier to the bottom tier the week before our first fixture, and all the shite that went along with it, that's feckall to do with this thread and Hearts.

And I've fixed his post for him for the 2nd fact. HTH.

Aye, not bad from a Saint Mirren fan.

this would always be the case.

threat of legal action, one side seeks QC advice, come out and states “ we have sought legal advice” and they think, note the word “think” we have a good case.

this is then presented to the audience with the hope that they will back off, retreat, withdraw their case or arguments.

this petty nonsense is used quite frequently, and the winners are the QC on mega bucks, does not matter if they win or lose the case, they still get paid.

in the meantime, side number two in the argument seek legal advice, and guess what? Yes ! We think you  have a good case, give us your money and we will defend you.

Back to the football, sad to see Hearts relegated, but someone had to go down.

Listening to that pair of Einstein’s on the radio, one Craig Levein, sorry Craig, you are one of the reasons Hearts are at the bottom.

And the other Maestro talks about Ross County, not winning the last few games.

Hello!!!! my three year old worked it out on the abacus .

Ross County had more points than Hearts throughout the season.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Hearts also fail to win thier last few games.

Brora needed three wins to confirm their win of the Highland league. Kelty needed three wins to win Lowland league, two wins from games v Edinburgh Uni/Cumbernauld colts/Berwick Rangers/BSC and one v Bonnyrigg Rose. Basically all Kelty needed to do was avoid defeat v a team they had just beaten a couple of weeks before season was ended.

Brora were 13 points ahead of their nearest rivals, with 2 games in hand, their championship wasn't in doubt.

There was no 'legal argument'. He was faced with 2 people saying "it's no fair" for 40 minutes and asking the same question over and over despite the same answer each time, to the point where DF wondered if he wasnt speaking English due to their utter inability to take in his answers. Tom English actually said that DFs career as a QC was based on 'natural justice'. I'm surprised DF didn't die from laughing at that description of a QC. There was no legal argument put to him at all. Endless hard luck stories. Tom English jumped the shark 3 months back and has now been eaten by it.
