Whilst these playoffs are what we have all been crying out for, man alive they are flawed. As a Falkirk Bairn, we now face having played 210 minutes v QOS and battled through, we now face the possibility of another 120 mins v Accies who are rested and must be rubbing their hands in glee. All this before a shot at glory v a Premiership team in waiting [ .. ]

The playoff game between Falkirk and Hamilton is another 2 legs Tuesday 13th and Sunday 18th. With the winners playing Hibs again over 2 legs on Wed 21st and Sunday 25th. Not a single match as your post suggests. Home leg 1st for Falkirk.

No worries, didn’t want you missing out on any of the play off action!! Good Luck to Falkirk. I must admit to having a wee soft spot for them, having lived in Falkirk for a couple of years a while back. Many a fun night was had in Behind the Wall among other watering holes!!

For anyone following the liquidation of RFC2012 the 6 monthly creditors report which is released by BDO was due on 30th March. The report has to be published within 6 weeks of its due date. The last updated reported was dated 30/10/2013 and was published on the 13/11/2013. This means we can perhaps expect a updated report within the next week.

Something that does bother me, though, and I’ve maybe been under a misapprehension for some time. His explanation for TRFC’s non-need to be voted in along with the other, more deserving, clubs to the SFL didn’t ring true to me as I’d always thought that TRFC were voted into the league.

Sevco “bought” Rangers membership when they purchased the assets of Rangers 2012(no laughing at the back of the class!) A vote then vote place on allowing them into the SPL and subsequently SFL1 and finally SFL3. This all happened before the SFA had accepted Sevcos membership of the league. This is I believe the reason why Turnbull Hutton states there was no reason to apply the normal membership criteria tests. Sevco already “owned” a membership, what was the point in investigating their eligibility? Why have a vote between Sevco and any other candidate clubs who may have applied for membership of the league, after all we don’t want democracy getting in the way of the natural order of things do we?

Armageddon? What Armageddon?

The bbc reporting that Cardiff “earned” 62.1 MILLION in T.V money alone for the 2013-2014 season. Even this is dwarfed by the 97.5 MILLION Liverpool received. A total of 1.6 BILLION paid to EPL clubs. Meanwhile in Scotland we don’t even know how little our clubs are receiving thanks to the confidentiality clause inserted in the t.v contracts by Neil Doncaster. I assume this is more through a feeling of shame and embarrassment than anything else on his part. It’s time the clubs insisted on a chief executive who is fit for purpose, who will fight to get them the best possible deal….. Rant over. 👿 ❗

OT, but something that might be a problem in the future if the SFA are left to organise it without oversight from anybody competent.
How will promotion and relegation work from the regional leagues to League 2?
The performance of just about any team allowed in in the last 20 years suggests it might take a good few years before the top regional teams all come through and find their level in the national league, but what if the vast majority of the teams going down all come from (for example) just the lowland league catchment area? Is that okay, or is there a mechanism for balancing the numbers? I don’t think there should be but one or the other regional leagues could become quite a lonely place.
I’m sure I read that the leagues will be rebalanced by moving clubs from a league depending on who gets relegated. For example if a highland league team gets promoted but maybe queens park goes down the lowlands league team that is geographically the furthest north would have to move into the highland league.

Here’s a newsflash Sandy the club didn’t survive admin 1. Dust off your buisness dictionary and look for the meaning of Liquidation. Shame on the BBC for reporting this rubbish. It is a sorry day when the nations publicly funded national broadcaster is passing off lies as a worthy story without one word of challenge

The revenue figures for the Scottish game make for particularly depressing reading a 40% drop in revenue since 2008 the second worse in Europe despite Scotland having the 15th best average attendence. Neil Doncaster has to take the majority of the blame for this, the failure to achieve significant Television deals must be a driving factor behind this decline.

Uefa have released the sixth club licensing benchmark report. Lots of in depth analysis of how countries throughout Europe have performed financially, attendance etc. Also an interesting section on clubs who failed to meet licensing requirements and the reasons why.
