League Reconstruction 20/21 season

Recommended Posts

There are a couple of things I'm uncertain about. Did Dundee United take part in anything significant in May 1987 and is there a mechanism by which Hearts and Dundee United could possibly swap leagues in future?

No Eamonn Bannon, no party.

I mind a game at Tynecastle (must've been late 90s) that was on the telly and they had Bannon and Willie Miller in a portakabin studio right behind the United fans who were making a right old noise banging on the corrugated metal fence and singing "We've got Eamonn Eamonn Bannon on the wing on the wing" over again.

Rob McLean goes at half-time, "These United fans really love you Eamonn, but I don't think they've been singing a song for you Willie."

"Oh, yes they have!" replied Willie  😅 🐑

Even at my most twisted and sadistic I wouldn't subject anyone to that.

Bizarre as it may seem, but imagine if Hearts of Thistle win the battle, aren't relegated, what a complete f**k up with the new season on the horizon. Has to be far too late to change anything now, they've probably done the programme covers, found a different supplier for less pies etc, can't wait to hear the outcome.

Statistical facts,  we’ve only been relegated once in the last  7 years.

How do you work that out? You were formally relegated as per SPFL rules on 10th May 2014 and again on 17th May 2020.

Aren't you the spanner who thought that Hibs played Arbroath in the Championship last time we were down? You're pretty terrible when it comes to checkable matters of fact. You want to get that sorted out.

No, but it's mathematically possible that you could be the first Scottish club in the modern age not to qualify for a European competition after winning the Scottish Cup! Something to hold on to in these hard times.

Just checked on JKB - they're up to P1707 now when the Treaty of Union came into effect...

Where will it end?

You might want to check your spanner facts as I’ve never mentioned hibs playing anyone in the Championship.  
 

we have been demoted by vote in an incomplete season.

Or, as the SPFL rules term it 'relegated'.

Yeah, that's a relegation.  The rule book gets to state that, not some tits on Kickback.

Without getting into it all again, Hearts are the SPFL.

It really will be a mess if the Panel comes out in Hearts/Thistle's favour, if they did I assume the onus would be on reorganisation, it'd push the top flight back to mid-September and I would imagine the easiest scenario for one season only (if SKY allows it) would be 3 divisions of 14 with 26 games.

Easier really just to blow up Tynecastle & Firhill!  :jerry

Not sure that counts, as Hearts were one of the clubs who voted the season to be finished.

There was an interesting statistic given the other day showing points in the Premiership over the last 10 years and Hearts were 7th behind the like of Motherwell, St Johnstone, and Kilmarnock, that’s pretty amazing given the huge difference in budgets. I keep reading that other clubs fans are envious of Hearts because they are able to compete with Rangers and Celtic for the league, that’s clearly not the case. Hearts have been an absolute failure of a football club now over a long period of time, that’s also just a fact. I really feel some of the support base would do well to Show a little more humility instead of trying to put down all the other “ Diddy teams” because  they really are not all that. A diddy club like Motherwell who have been in the top flight since 1985 are actually a far more successful club.

As Hearts have been transferred to "a lower division of a league", anyone arguing over them not being relegated is deluding themselves.

A Bairn telling a Jambo that in the midst of a pandemic sometimes we just have to take our medicine, there's more important shit going on. We fucked up by being a point behind with a budget that should have meant we were well ahead, you fucked up by being 4 points behind the second worst team with a budget far greater than the teams immediately above you. Shit happens, a bit of humility would be in order.
