36 years, how much longer?


Recommended Posts

This year marks 36yrs since any other club outwith the arse cheeks were crowned league champions.

How long will we have to wait to see it happen again , ?

Do you think you will see it again in your lifetime?

Yes, but how do we decide on which team wins the title?

I certainly don't want your mob to be given 3-0 wins from every other club outside the OF.

Who is the most inoffensive Scottish team to all other teams that could be worthy of the title?

Give every team their day in the sun. Start with the smallest / poorest club, kind of like the draft system. 

Of course this would only apply to teams in the Premier league.

10 years of no arse cheeks winning the title. I'd sign up for that.

Why do you get to win it first though?

No such thing.

We all want a non-OF winner. But not a team we don't like, and we'll all immediately start hating whatever teams wins it anyway.

Lolz.

You'd certainly be ahead of us the queue, if you had a seat at the top table.

We are Yo-yo. Bound to be at the top table for 5 of the next 10 seasons.

There’s already a thread about this somewhere. In answer to the question though - forever and a day. No-one outwith Celtic and The Rangers can win the top flight. Take a look at the points difference between them and the third placed team last season. Only two things can possibly see a non ugly sister win the league any time soon. One is that a mad, mega-rich individual or consortium buys a diddy club, and absolutely throws obscene amounts of money at it, signing guys that otherwise would be nowhere near Scotland’s top flight. That is unlikely to happen, because anyone with that amount of money would buy into a ‘Sheffield United’ or ‘Sunderland’, type of English club, and attempt a route to the promised land of the EPL.

The second way it could happen is if a rogue nation hits Murray Park and Lennoxtown with tactical nuclear missiles during both clubs training sessions. Even then, the Scottish football authorities would find a way to fast-track their Under 18 sides straight into the top flight and give them a thirty point head start.

It needs a 'black swan' event and by its nature you can never predict those things. We sort of had one when Rangers went bankrupt and had to start a new club in the lowest league, but with the setup being a duopoly you need to kill all the heads of the hydra, not just one. Sadly Celtic held as strong a grasp to the status quo as it always did, while OF apologists, like Stewart Milne, simply adhered to whatever wishes suited Celtic - presumably under the misguided assumption they were now the 2nd club in the duopoly. Meanwhile the other clubs didn't take the advantage that a Rangers-less league offers.

So, in short, I do not see this changing, ever. If anything, the chances have reduced massively purely down to the money the OF get.

That was an opportunity if Mcinnes has shown some fucking balls

Forgot to mention the third way it could happen. If both of them fcuked off to some sort of manufactured ‘European Super League’ affair. Probably into the second tier of any such nonsense, with the proper big clubs like Real Madrid, Man City and Co in the top tier…. Even then, the Scottish football authorities would….

Yip, that was the slight opening.

Aberdeen had a sniff of a chance one season heading into the spring, but had a poor run and  Celtic wound up winning it by a decent margin.

When this incarnation of Rangers got into the top flight, Celtic promptly employed Rodgers and the gap got bigger than it'd been.

We're now back at peak duopoly, leaving the media delighted.  For those who actually care though, the lights have gone back out.

It's 37 years since Aberdeen won it in 1985.

It's been unbroken OF since.

When Aberdeen won in 85, it was the last time Dumbarton graced the top flight. Which just proves that Scottish football needs the Sons back there!
