Aberdeen stand up for the fans against Doncaster and Regan


Blogging on the move right now but want to pass comment on one part of the statement by Aberdeen chairman, Stewart Milne.  As he confirmed his club would place the fifth and decisive vote against Sevco being allowed access to the SPL next season he said:

“Reorganisation of the game is a priority and is something we have been actively involved in for a long time, but it is not something that should be rushed through just to deal specifically with one club.

“As we have indicated there are a number of other areas that we feel need to be addressed openly in the coming period if Scottish football fans are to feel that their views have been properly taken into account.”

Those well-paid executives who work for us and on Friday met to discuss a way to reorganise the league structure in the next couple of weeks should pay heed.  As Mr Milne suggests, we are the game, not you.

    Does anyone think, like me, that these announcements from clubs are being choreographed and drip fed to the media?


    Question is why?


    I think they are pushing now to get ST money in asap.

    :) I will certainly give it some thought….. No idea how to look back and remember what I asked. I have asked many questions here since Feb 14th and most of them I have asked many times having forgotten the original answers.

    My touch is almost as deft as Pirlo’s as he tickled that pen home last night.

    “…to discuss a way to reorganise the league structure in the next couple of weeks”



    Surely it can’t be reorganised before the start of the season? Do you mean they would agree for change to be implemented this time next year possibly?




  7. merseycelt lmfao as the big house door slams shut on




    Quite right to highlight this and well done to Mr Milne for saying it!




  8. Spot on Paul – and well said SM – those words should be posted up for a poll vote on all fans sites across Scotland.



    Maybe then, finally, the well-paid executives would finally understand that Sevco are OOT, and, by the way, so are you guys

    Congratulations to the Aberdeen fans …. not convinced Milne would have done the right thing without them putting their foot down




    Hail Hail

  10. Afternoon All, from a wonderfully sunny Inverness.



    Even the haggis are smiling as ICT say NO TO NEWCO PARACHUTE INTO SPL!!



    I love a bit of a ‘Highland Revolt’ against the Establishment ! Ross County clan to follow suit soon, they are a wee bit behind in Dingwall……….



    Here is a link below to some of the finer cultural delights, stadium wise, in SLF 3 – Stair Park. I have been urging some Highland League Clubs to get their applications in ASAP as the Newco are struggling, well on all counts, to get their ‘BIG HOOSE’ in order to apply for SFL3 – TICK TOCK






    Happy Birthday Neil Francis Lennon YNWA

  11. Now if the SFL could just say no as well!



    For entry into the SFL they are looking at fixing it to get t hem into either Division 1 or they then they would have to look at Division 3.



    Now why would the Division 1 clubs want them as it could make it near impossible for them to get promotion in the coming season?



    But would the Division 3 clubs want them either as it would seriously dent any hopes of promotion and any money gain at the gate would be minimal due to the lower capacity at their grounds and increased polis costs.



    Heres hoping

  12. Caley have just been realistic Now Doncaster and Regan can go Balistic



    Por cierto

  13. Aberdeen 1 – 0 Abnegators.


    SPL/SFL clubs should meet on 4th July to raise a vote of No Confidence in the present administrators of the game. Time for an enema!


    Say NO to RC Ogilvie & Co.


    Hail! Hail! PMTYH

  14. Caley have just been realistic now newco go boooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm1111111111111

  15. Well that’s the share in the SPL now available to either Dunfermline or Dundee, so how does that now take place, not who gets it but how do they get it? por cierto

    Em……yes. If ‘art’ is emblematic of a particular time,then what do we have?


    Damien Hirst. Kinda says it all and exemplifies the final thought in the article you posted.




    And,yeah,sparkleghirl,your mirth is not solitary!




    sevco5088….I like the number….it’ll be our 3,200th. anniversary of unbroken history!

    First game of the season, when we have Aberdeen as our guests, we can sing



  18. Why are many so sure that a new club would gain promotion from any league they get allowed to okay in?



    Perhaps they would have a reasonable chance of escaping from Div 3. But Khan of funds would mean they would be competing on an equal footing thereafter (12th man not withstanding)

  19. Por Cierto



    My suggestion would be a play-off at a neutral venue with losers gettng gate receipts to mitigate against no SPL income.




  20. Now there is no doubt the SFA/SPL/SFL will bring in changes to our game in time for the 13/14 season but how do they do it so the winners of this seasons div3 are promoted into the top league.


    Maybe get all the chairmen on the park at this seasons cup final for a dance off.

  21. Silver City 1888



    Sorry to be pedantic but that should say:



    You HATED Rangers more than us!
