Rangers & Celtic B teams in Ibrox club's 14-14-18 SPFL plan - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52941423

 

Seems this Colts shite has reared its ugly head again. Interesting part that would surely not go ahead as it would utterly shaft the whole pyramid system.

 

"Other Premiership clubs can apply to have 'B' teams starting in the Highland and Lowland leagues - replacing Kelty and Brora - with a joining fee of £25,000"

The colts thing needs to get in the fucking sea once and for all.

I don't know who keeps agitating for it - it's obviously someone's pet project that they won't take the hint about - but surely after it's been universally derided year after year you'd like to think they would.

I would be done with Scottish club football if the [email protected] spawn of the bigot brothers entered the SPFL.

If this proposal was accepted it would be one more nail in the coffin for sporting integrity and fair play in Scottish Football. Yes maybe some other countries do it but the lower leagues in those countries are rapidly becoming a joke, lost their romance, where money and the power of a hand full of big clubs have taken over the leagues just to serve those top few clubs and ensure their continual qualification for european competitions every season. The proposal needs thrown out (again) and Scottish Football can then be proud to hold heads high and say money hasn't yet taken over the game here and we should be proud of that. Colt/reserve teams or even worse for me the idea in the proposal to encourage ICT/Fort William style tie ups between big and small clubs, needs thrown out once and for all. There should be no reserve teams in the senior pyramid at all, or if there has to be then given the precedent set in the SoS and NCL (assuming the NCL do become a tier 6 under the HL as rumoured), then its tier 6 and below and they go no higher up.

I hope the lower league clubs fight this and aren't taken in by the money on offer.  Colt teams would completely devalue League Two/any other leagues they end up in.

Make them apply to the WoSFL and start at tier 9 next season if they have to come in at all. We either have.a pyramid system or we don't.

Don't know wether to laugh or greet at that answer.

Remember going along to Rutherglen to watch the Glens the day the Old Firm played at New Year. There was more folk in Chapmans lounge watching the game on TV than was at the Glens game. 

Sporting integrity?

SFA?

WoSFL?

You having a giraffe?

Made up story. Rutherglen Glencairn haven't been playing on the day of the last few festive Old Firm games.

6 months ago the Old Firm game was on Sunday 29th December.

Glencairn played Rossvale away from home on Saturday 28th December.

No wonder there were more people in Chapman's than at our park as there was no game on that weekend.

Yes I remember that day now. 18 months ago. It was Whitletts Victoria we were playing.

I'm not sure of the relevance of this to the thread though.

You think the Old Firm colts wouldn't attract a crowd down Rutherglen way for a league game especially if the big team is playing on a Sunday.

Take Rutherglen Glencairn's intention is to one day play in the LL and if the Old Firm colts are in the LL you'd play them at home i take it.

In Rutherglen?
