Re: SPFL & TV

Couldn't agree more with you about ex-players condoning cheating or gamesmanship but couldn't agree less re technology. Regarding TV & other associations, it's just as bad elsewhere if not worse than here. In Spain the advance notice given of day and kick-off time for a televised match is much short...

Re: Number of Players Used in a Season

15 Dundee players for their league winning season. It was Liverpool who used 14 players when they won the league in 1965-66. And of those 14, Alf Arrowsmith played just three times and Bobby Graham once. Of the Dundee 15, Alex Stuart played twice,George McGeachie three times, Bobby Waddell four and...

Re: Fan Ownership

The 'I'd be in over my head' mentality exists in England too with the over-reliance on billionaires, chancers, billionaire chancers and billionaires who are only billionaires because they are chancers. Until, as in my previous post, all seems lost. That's what sparks fans into action and they realis...

Re: Fan Ownership

Fan or community ownership only seems to come into play at the moment when the market fails. In other words it's the fans who are left to pick up the pieces when the boardroom screws up and there's no sugar daddy (or mammy, I wouldn't want to offend Hearts supporters) on the horizon. I agree it's no...

Re: SPFL & TV

. In any case, it's the Rangers newco that suffers the most in the TV deal, being paid something like £2,000 and a packet of digestive biscuits for the pleasure of nearly every away game being rearranged. Be fair. It means fans don't have to travel t.o watch them. They can endure the misery from th...
