Recommended Posts

The correct decision even if arrived in an embarrassing manner and at glacial pace.

This was quite obviously the fairest solution from the start. No other clubs punished apart from those who breached rules.

Has to be a review into how they came to the original clusterfuck of a decision though.

Heard from VERY reliable sources that Accies will be taking this to the High Court with the help of a respected lawyer called Leslie Deans. St Mirren won't stand a chance and we'll get the three points back before tomorrow's game.

I can't say anymore though.

Leslie Deans!!! What a laugh listening to that tool greeting on radio Scotland in the summer.

On that point, legal fees ???

I am just surprised they did not get Bobby Madden to announce it 5 minutes before KO on Sunday. 

As to whether we are disadvantaged depends on how they fix these two fixtures in. Knowing the SPFL they will probably ask us to play 4 games in a week. 

I am sure the club will say nothing sadly - but you can bet if it was Hearts or Celtic or Partick Thistle or any other statement FC there would be a statement coming out next hour or so.

I love it whenever someone makes a post referencing that senile old duffer. It always makes me laugh out loud just thinking about his embarrassing contributions "aiding" Hearts legal case last year

Thanks accies1874 and Loemba90.

We will obviously go and lose both rearranged games 3-0 now. The St Mirren way.
You'll be fine, the banter gods are busy in the East end of Glasgow.

Ditto  I don't know many Well fans who thought we should have got the points in the first place but its odd that one panel comes to a certain conclusion while another comes to a completely different one (unless facts that weren't available to the original panel became available to the appeals panel?)

I think every team would like a transparent explanation on how each decision was made so we can at least understand the logic behind them but I wont hold my breath for that.

It was ridiculous that the clubs were docked points in the first place but it's been sorted out eventually. I suppose we can still trust the spfl to make sure things run smoothly.

Foundation of Hearts chairman is still incredulous.

Brilliant. They'll never get over the right thing being done.

No club was docked points and tbh it would have been a fairer punishment than what was originally given out.

You'd be forgiven for thinking Hearts had some radical, Scottish football saving, reform up for grabs last Summer, and not just two extra clubs in one division for a season, with nothing else changing.

The appeals weren't about gilt, both St Mirren & Killie held their hands up to breeches in Covid protocols. The appeals were about the severity of punishment.

Anyone fancy nipping down to the Championship forum and showing the Hearts fans how to successfully get an appeal won?
Get it fucking posted

He’ll be lucky - allegedly St Mirren have a very powerful backer to support them in the High Court.
