SFL delivers as SPL Ltd facing insolvency

1374

The Scottish Football League today placed an upper limit on which division Sevco can play in next season – their Third.  We must now wait on the company providing sufficient information to complete their application to the SFL and for membership of the Scottish FA.  Although many Rangers fans want Sevco to join the Third Division, chief exec Charles Green was clearly hoping to start life higher up the food chain.

The overwhelming nature of this verdict indicates the solidarity between clubs and fans, throughout the divisions, on how our sport is governed.  This is a good thing but it leaves one burning question on the table:

Is the Scottish Premier League insolvent?

Last week SPL chief exec Neil Doncaster told SFL clubs that the Premier League would be unable to meet its contractual obligations if they did not vote Sevco into the First Division.  Unless this was a shameless lie designed to bully clubs into giving Doncaster what he wanted, the Scottish Premier League Ltd should seek to appoint an administrator without delay.

You can ignore comments about league reconstruction at some unspecified point in the future, Doncaster told us last year that “those who want 16 teams in the top flight are deluding themselves.”

The Scottish Football League does not need the SPL, or its money, to continue to thrive as a community-based sporting entity.  They will flourish.  What happens to the SPL remains to be seen.

As we have observed once or twice before, M. Platini, where are you?  We need the football world to assist with the survival of the game in one of its historic heartlands.

  5. On Rankers Media there are no shouts for a boycott of division 3

     

     

    A majority of TFOD fans wanted to go to Div 3

     

     

    On whose behalf is Gordon Smith speaking on

     

     

    A former CEO of the SFA promoting and instigating a boycott of member clubs of the SFA, no wonder the SFA is in crisis

    Posted that vid earlier.It was covered on bbc radio ulster news at lunchtime and is going to feature on TV news at tea time

     

    Disturbing alright ,but just an every day occurance in this wee pravince

  8. Hun with head buried ankle deep in the sand…

     

     

    “Surely we’d be the first 3rd division club to with the Scottish Cup and or League cup?

     

     

    And, technically we could win the Quad this year. Division 3, Scottish Cup, League Cup & Challenge Cup?

     

     

    Could it be done?

     

     

    What happens if elbows gets suspended, who is going to play in goal, right back, centre mid, left mid, right mid, left back, centre half and in the hole?

  9. jock steins celtic on

    slightly off topic but any thoughts as to why Sevco paid over £2m for (worthless) player registrations but only £1.5m for the stadium/training ground ? Linked to what BDO might do in terms of ruling the asset sale illegal ?

  10. So secco 1690 are proposing a boycott… I’m sure Spartans have just gained a couple of votes

     

    Stupid Stupid ex huns

  11. Dead and Loving it on

  12. Green Lantern (((((0))))) on

    The Orange scum parading outside the Catholic Church obviously don’t want anyone to see what they are doing otherwise they wouldn’t have attacked the person filming it.

     

     

    We should therefore be sharing this video with as many people as possible to show these cretins up for the Nazis they are.

  13. Tricoloured Ribbon:

     

     

    Poor Bomber might just have been repeating what he was told. Then again, maybe he just made it up; huns are good at making things up, like annual accounts and property values.

  14. Just noticed that within the last ten minutes Newsnow has taken “rangers”out of its SPL section.

  15. It’s high time the chairmen of the decent clubs in Scotland called an EGM of the SFA, SPL and SFL (all of them) and kicked all of these officials out.

     

     

    Whilst they are in office, they know that nothing can go forward unless Club 12 is decided and all the corresponding adjustments beneath.

     

    Kick them out NOW and take away the control of Scottish football from these psychos.

  16. Awe_Naw_No_Annoni_Oan_Anaw_Noo on

    Sevco will get thier arses felt by BDO.

     

     

    Blue Knighties apply for third division this season playing next.

  24. Is there anyone in Scotland in a position to monitor the activities of Mssrs Regan, Doncaster, Longmuir and most importantly, Ogilvie.

     

    This week they will be working triple overtime to come up with yet another scheme to save scum FC.

    ‪#c4news‬ tonight the fight intensifies: Scottish FA pledged to over-rule fanpower and their own clubs

  28. Listening to the SFL statement,it appears that there will be no support from them for any SPL2,who are they gonna ask the juniors

  29. Just watching the Tour De France and was struck by the appropriateness of the music they used to introduce a quick wee review:

     

    “It’s been the worst day since yesterday.”

     

     

    Maybe that should be on SSN instead.
