Re: Retrospective bans for diving from 2017/18

if it is the same as Scotland's diving ban it will be after the game not during the game. The GFA have a compliance officer whose job it is to punish diving and off the ball incidents the referee has missed. In Scotland if a ref catches the dive it is a Yellow for Simulation, but if the compliance o...

Re: What a pathetic way to earn a living.

Just remember Pete that SFL League One and Two are part time (and amateur in fact) but with national coverage Queens Park are the only amateur team in the SPFL. Apart from Queens Park (and Dunfermline) the rest of the teams in SPFL 3and 4 plus Alloa, Dumbarton and Cowdenbeath are semi professional....

Re: Another club into fan ownership

It was a case of vote for the CVA you'll get nothing. However if you vote against the CVA you will get nothing. Dunfermline's stadium East End Park is owned by another company, who are also in administration with a different administrator, so they have no assets to liquidate, Pars United are preferr...

Re: The way football is run by many as a plaything for the r

Scottish Football is in need of serious reform especially some of the clauses for voting and the financial distribution. The old firm theoretically have/had a veto for everything a "diddy" proposes. (11-1 voting). Also it is getting a wee bit boring. Motherwell are in an akward position - the Board ...

The changeover Date was May 13th - the end of the season. Of course things will have changed since I saw that. And funksoul - who will want Celtic that is ...

Re: Interesting article on Rangers "newco"

Livi was in the SFL and actually spent time in Liquidation though when they were demoted. I'm hoping the SFA appeal panel still meets on Friday. And they can refuse to issue a new license to Govan Utd/Wanderers (Newco) which makes things more difficult. You'd also have trouble from Dundee and the SF...

Re: Interesting article on Rangers "newco"

I think common sense will prevail in the end and Rangers will remain in the SPL albeit with some sanctions on points/transfers. If the fans are going to walk away in large numbers then it is not common sense is it? Average SPL attendence (minus 3 clubs) is less than 10000 and in most cases around 4...

Re: Rangers

Possible punishment on the table for Rangers is suspension/expulsion from the SFA for bringing the game into disrepute.

Re: Shotts Bon Accord are Scottish Cup Champions 2012

Auchinleck Talbot held their own against Hearts (senior cup winners) in their 4th round match. Although if the penalty went in it may have been different. Standard varies obviously but I'd say some of the teams are better or on a par with the Highland League and the other two senior non league leagues
