  1. Surely the solution that the geniuses at the SPFL will come away with will include: Premiership -starts in August/Sept behind closed doors until Oct (or first Bigotfest) Championship - starts late Sept behind closed doors initially, 3 rounds of games to be played The rest-any survivors amalgamated into a 14-20 team league starting November playing each other 2 times League Cup, Tunnocks Wafer Cups scrapped - Scottish Cup from this season completed and next years to only include the top 32 teams At the end of next season Scottish football to be reconstructed 12, 20 then the pyramid There might even be a case for amalgamations in certain circumstances just to preserve a semblance of a structure for Scottish football, but that is unlikely (as is most of the above of course)
  2. September weekend 1980/1/2 ish [can't rightly remember tbh] just across from Helensburgh to Greenock - got strange looks on the boat and verbal abuse as I walked along from the quay side to Cappielow!
  3. As regards cycling to a match, a few years ago I decided to cycle to Cappielow and all was going well until a diversion through Houston resulted in a puncture. Soldiered on but had to stop every half mile to pump up tyre. Missed game which was infuriating as we won but just got train home instead. Went toCappielow by paddle steamer once though.
  4. A large bike shed to accommodate all the hundreds of bikes that spectators in the future will have travelled to the game on.
  5. If the season goes ahead and supporters are admitted then away games should perhaps be a matter of choice. Bearing in mind we play 2 games away against each team then perhaps selective attendance at one away game against every side could be considered. It could even be considered in a rational rather than reactionary way? Perhaps if we have an away game at say Montrose -purely as an example-in the weeks before Christmas, it could be avoided for financial or climactic reasons and the other game at Montrose could be chosen in preference? Choice is important of course and people can make their own minds up before embarking on trips to some of the more interesting parts of the country.
  6. They will not get 11-1 from the top league and 75% of the rest isn't really realistic especially as the bottom division has already nailed its colours to 14 14 14. Time to perhaps accept that demotion, regardless of any notion of fairness or unfairness, is possibly a better moral option than artificial survival.
  7. Perhaps the problem for the SPFL is that it appears that they have ceded the moral high ground to Rangers -; a concept so utterly inconceivable that the SPFL is desperately trying to back pedal in order to try to regain a shred of credibility but that ship has sailed.
  8. The only clash next season will be East Fife so a black second strip might not work in any case.
  9. Kelty have a point but so do Clyde in their respective announcements, both are made with an element of self -interest, as well as a nod to relative fairness given the unusual circumstances.
  10. I care for my club, but I couldn't care less for Scottish football, there's the rub.
  11. Is it t assumed that fiddling the leagues needs a 75% majority? If so it will never happen, or will wee Annie fudge that as well?
  12. In the same manner as the 2004 relegation played out this will now fizzle away and fade. The Rangers will nurse their well rehearsed righteous indignation but frankly no one will give a monkey's for us. A few years down the line this fiasco will be happily forgotten by everyone although our predicament on the field might still be a reminder of it if the past 3 years are anything to go by.
  13. Forfar were due £28, 000 for Alan Morgan and as all football debts had to be paid in full due to our administration that would almost certainly have put us under and resulted in liquidation. As I recall they accepted deferred andd staged payment which allowed the administrative process to be concluded. At least that is how I remember that situation unfurling.
  14. With regard to earlier comments made about, and by, Forfar Athletic it might be worth remembering that in our hour of most desperate need Forfar were remarkably understanding. Without that understanding we might not have had a club to support nor would we be gnashing our teeth over their imminent relegation.
