With the delay i'm wondering if they're now going to cram the play-offs to include midweek dates. League One/Championship Play-offs are Semis 8th & 11th May. Final 15th & 18th May. Those dates would give Club 42 over a week off so they can't complain about a run of games without a break.

I have similar thoughts SPFL trying to delay the Brora v Kelty ties to force them to play Sat/Tues as opposed to Saturday/Saturday, which would help out club 42, a shorter recovery time for the HL/LL winner would certainly help Club 42, 2 potentially 4 games in the space of 7 to 10 days would be hard going after not having played in so long especially for Kelty.

Interesting statement from Donald Findlay today in the BBC regarding the club 42 playoff and Cowdenbeath "has to be integrity" he says. Have Annan come out and said anything about it? You would think Annan as a newer club to the spfl with a legacy in the SoS & EoS although pre pyramid would be more favourable about the playoff taking place, or maybe I am wrong!

Fact or supposition?

Apologies, I seem to conflated two articles, so  can’t confirm it as fact.

Will delete comment

Step down for Mr Swift, going to an inferior club. Take away those Stirlingshire cup wins and their trophy cabinet could be even smaller than BSC's.

Whit?

Mangers don't give a shit about how many trophies a club have won. They care about the potential of the club and where reaching that potential might get them further down their career. BSC have arguably been punching right at the top of the weight over the last couple of seasons. Winning the LL is going to be an incredibly tough job for a manager who can't just go out and buy multiple players from a higher level over the next 5 years.

With Stenhousemuir, promotion from League Two is a realistic target over the next couple of seasons. If he can get the club into L1 and do OK there, his stock will have gone up and bigger jobs, possibly full time will open up for him. At BSC, he'd be doing a good job just to stay where they are.

My post went right over your head, unlucky. 

Fair enough. Very difficult to tell the genuinely wild opinions form the sarcastic ones on here.

So 8th / 15th for the pyramid play-off and 23rd / 29th for the League Two final, or will they play some games in midweek? Brechin's final league game is on the 4th so they'll probably moan if they have to wait 19 days...

“We are delighted that the decision by the judge corresponded with the view of the Scottish FA and provides the necessary clarity to the league bodies and certainty to those clubs affected.” - Ian Maxwell

With them having to go to that kind of bother it explains the delay.

They'd want the decision to be iron clad before they go ahead with it, so that Brechin don't have a leg to stand on when they ultimately try to complain.

I assume all these games will be at least available to stream? Can see myself watching at least a couple of them.

All three clubs have streamed games this season, so you'd assume so. Probably shitty quality based on the highlights I watched from Kelty and Brora, but available nonetheless.

Or the SFA and SPFL were of opposing opinions already due to complaints from their membership.

Hopefully the BBC will put on the final.

They really should. It's a pity it's two-legs as it could be a pretty excellent one-off game that you'd imagine would would be far more interesting than some random Ayr vs Dundee Championship game in February.

If they play the final on 19th and 23rd - fans will be able to attend and it could be alternative viewing on the BBC instead of the Premiership play-off final games. Though no doubt Brechin would baulk at going north in midweek.

I concur.

Will probably pay for the games tbh, Brora's stream was the first away one I paid for this season and the quality was good (though the camera was at a daft angle). The bits I saw from their win vs Hearts shows they'd improved that. I'm sure all three clubs have it reasonably set up by now.
