  1. No it isn’t. They deliberately set it for October as the Scot Gov pathway had indicated the possible return of crowds from September.
  2. It’s hardly a new phenomenon, we’ve had loads of players over the last 30+ years that have had multiple spells at the club.
  3. Issues like this I think are key points that were absent from or misstated in the paper the SPFL issued to clubs in advance of the vote. They ignored that financial loans could be given, stating instead that end of season was the only way to release funds. They didn’t explore the option to pick up the league post lockdown with an option to shorten 20/21, as they have facilitated for lower leagues. They suggested player registration was a barrier to completion post 30th June, wasn’t a problem for other leagues and the SFA or UEFA competitions. All of these issues and more put in doubt their compliance with the need to act openly, fairly and In the best interests of all.
  4. So we went to court and won some real concessions for the arbitration process; independent panel, involvement of a legal professional, and full disclosure of documents relating to the vote. We wouldn’t have got these issues agreed if we had gone straight to arbitration.
  5. You do realise that applying the concept of supply and demand it is actually more costly for a League 1 club to produce a bespoke replica kit than it would be for a top league club? Basically our club will make less per kit sold than Aberdeen, Celtic, Rangers etc.
  6. It looks from the photo that he is involved with the charitable trust.
  7. So they’re restarting the top league but others aren’t going ahead yet. Hearts (as an example) have the infrastructure to play but because Alloa (for example) don’t, Hearts will be left with mounting bills and no way to make money. Likewise us and Falkirk further down the league ladder. Clubs will need to start thinking about freeing players, and players may choose to ask for their contracts to be ripped up if they want to play any football this year because there are only a few clubs that can provide that for them. It’s a farce and will undoubtedly leave some clubs disadvantaged, and maybe put out of business.
  8. If teams are unable to play because they can’t meet the costs of testing is that a health and safety concession or a concession because of their financial limitations? Should other businesses be forced to mothball because their peers don’t have the infrastructure or funds to operate?
  9. If they force clubs into mothballing players will lose jobs and clubs could die. Would it amount to restriction of trade?
  10. I don’t think he did. Was he not a Southampton player at the time? We didn't play Southampton. My memory is as per the link, narrow defeat to the hosts on the Saturday and a comprehensive defeat to Man City on the Sunday. I remember being there there both days as young 7 year old. Having taken my own kids to games when they were young I imagine that I was an absolute pain to my father if I had to sit through 4 matches over 2 days.
  11. The club acknowledges that some people may need the money in these hard times so made the offer. People shouldn’t be slated for doing what is right for them and their family.
  12. There’s a difference between automatic promotion and a playoff. Being top of their league doesn’t guarantee promotion, even in normal circumstances. Don’t let the facts get in the way of your conspiracy theory though.
  13. No stranger than all the other playoffs being scrapped as part of the SPFL ‘end the season early’ plan. Kelty weren’t guaranteed promotion, they were in a playoff place just the same as Falkirk, ICT and a load of other clubs who lost their opportunity to go up via the playoffs. No other team in a relegation playoff position was relegated as a result of their plan so it would have been unfair to relegate Brechin.
  14. There are only two times that the league table has parity; when the season ends, and when everyone has played all teams once home and once away. If we were getting relegated after they’d calculated the table at the ‘absolute halfway’ point I honestly think I’d personally be okay with it. I suspect though that such a calculation would cause havoc with the Premiership as Rangers 2020 form would be disregarded. Mind you as we all know from the stupid split that league never had parity beyond the ‘halfway’ point.
  15. All the best Frank, get well soon!
