SPFL fails to understand Scottish football’s magic ingredient

138

With no genuine drama left in the title race, the SPFL had significant licence in determining which game Celtic needed to win to secure the league title. A home game would have been a great event for supporters and the club. But, with only one more TV game allowed at Celtic Park this season, the decision was made to prioritise TV needs. We will receive the trophy on the final weekend of the season against Aberdeen, and a few thousand of us will shuffle into Tynecastle hoping to see the league won on Sunday, 7 May.

It is as though those making the decisions donā€™t get what it means to follow a club through the long months of a season in the hope of winning the ultimate prize, the hope of being there in person to see the event. More than anywhere else in the world, Scottish football is about the live event. We all know and understand this, perhaps with the exception of whoever scheduled our next fixture.

  1. Good morning Yall from a lovely sunny morning in the Garden of God. Birds whistling (steady MM and Big Jimmy) the feathered variety, flowers blooming, Celtic about to win the League again and about to knock hun, rabbid cnuts out of scottish cup….oh and its good to be a Tim. Aka Mel Brooks (its good to be the king).

     

     

    Good to see Ange say the only 1 who will not be available come Sunday will be Jamsie F, means Jota, Reo and Abada will be in contention.

    Born and early bred in the Garngad, I have a real affection for the place but I have to say that is the most pastoral description I have heard of my birthplace :-))

     

    Good on you, David !

    But it can’t match the tree lined boulevards of leafy, suburban Govanhill.
