Doncaster now warning of dire consequences of no reconstruction

Time for Rangers to file their law suits and obliterate this nonce and Lawwell's cabal of corrupt sycophants. Nuke the place, get with Cormack and Budge and demand a restructuring of the game. We need one governing body made up of impartial professionals. Otherwise we approach the English and ask for entry to wherever they'll have us. Work our way up.
We pay that specky c*** 400K to oversee this shambles.

What a f-con man. They could have avoid all this drama with a logical 'null & void' decision but the chance that might open the door to the CL for us made them shit their pants and declare the tarriers winners with all the consequence that brought with it. Any reconstruction should be meaningful, not done as a stop gap to avoid a law suit

I hope we make a point of voting NO just to spite them.

No surprise its Jackson leading the media propaganda either

So Covid 19 and Hearts being relegated will kill the game?

The SPFL are like a child, trying to negotiate staying up late. Their arguments are not relevant to resolution, but they just keep talking.

"Lower league teams need fans to attend games to survive"
"We should have a 16 team top flight"

I have an idea, let's keep everybody happy, let's have one 42 team league. That'll fix it.

The way I see it, Budge was promised that Hearts would stay up if she sided with the cabal on the"yes" vote. One way or another, Doncaster will make good on that promise.
I will also be watching with interest for player moves/loans in and out of Dundee FC and pre-season friendlies/moneymakers for their balance sheet.

Scotland's clubs will be warned next week that failure to thrash out league reconstruction in time for next season will effectively press the self destruct button on the professional game in this country.

Record Sport understands SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster is bracing himself for a series of monumental meetings next week - beginning on Monday when he will hold crisis talks with all 12 top flight clubs.


And Doncaster will attempt to hammer home the message that a radical overhaul of the current league structure - and in particular the lower three leagues - is no longer an option but an absolute necessity.

The move comes after an SPFL board held an emergency meeting to study a reconstruction ‘discussion paper’ put forward on Tuesday by Hearts owner Ann Budge.


Thursday’s meeting of the Hampden top brass also centred around growing concerns over next season’s Championship after a number of second tier clubs admitted earlier this week that they cannot afford to start up the next campaign behind closed doors.

And now Doncaster will have to spell out the dire consequences of any failure to agree on a new format in time for football’s big re-start.
Why are we shocked by this and never even saw it coming I wonder?

The cabal are as pitiful as they are corrupt and predictable.

If it’s this dire why wasn’t he talking that way weeks ago. A complete and utter shambles.

Why let multiple attempts come and go and why wasn’t this distress signal sent after the first rejection of this by Premier clubs more than two weeks ago. What’s changed since then ?

Aberdeen chairman: "Whilst the group sympathises with the plight of the relegated teams, it concluded that this is not the right time to consider immediate reconstruction in the midst of a crisis"

Robust conversations, I’d expect.

Not long ago, someone was saying that Budge needs a miracle for reconstruction to happen. Well, it appears that age of miracles has arrived (no doubt assisted by some backhanders).

Farce. They named the filth champions so by that rule Hearts go down. No-one listened to big bad Rangers when we tried to rid this country of the vermin running the game, so for that reason I for one don’t care one iota for any other team. If they die, they die. PS Funny how the required pass marks change every time there’s a vote isn’t it?

Yeah just make the rules up as you go along, i'm absolutely sick of these bastards. I know it won't happen, but hope we boycott every single away ground next season.

That means clubs from the Championship down would be expected to fulfil all 36 league fixtures. And any club which could not play their games could then be faced with the ultimate threat of expulsion from the SPFL

One source told us: “These are going to be very difficult conversations but that’s just the reality of the situation Scottish football now faces.

“Doncaster will meet with the Premiership clubs on Monday to discover if there is any consensus among them for what Ann has proposed, in terms of a 14 team top division for next season.

“If they can’t agree on that then everyone will be back to square one. And that’s when the chief executive is going to have to explain the next steps to clubs in the lower three tiers. As things stand, three leagues of ten clubs is not going to be possible.

“Some Championship clubs have already made it clear they’ll be in no position to play a full league campaign. But unless 75 per cent of all clubs can agree on some form of reconstruction, then the rules state it must be a 36 game season.

“If any club can’t fulfil its own fixtures it would become a disciplinary issue - one of the most serious disciplinary issues there is - and it would carry unlimited punishments
More threats!

‘Somebody’ apart from Budge...must want this.
Otherwise, he wouldn't be pushing for this!

Come on Rangers board, just push the damn button will you please!

I think it's just a case of them knowing that Hearts and other relegated clubs will have a cast iron case if/when they take them to court.

They started off with giving them the league as a priority above all else and have worked back the way ever since. As soon as that was secured they could deal with the rest of the problems later.

It's time for us to step up to the plate now with this blatant corruption. We should have said something when they got made "champions", but it seems we've just accepted it now after all the hard work we put in exposing the lies in the first place.

I’d like reconstruction to happen, I think we need it sorted properly once and for all.
I wouldn’t vote for it if it’s proposed by this shower of con men though.

This mob make Charles Green and David Sommers look like fine upstanding members of the community.

They can shuffle the cards till the cows come home.
But it always comes back to we have double the amount of senior clubs we should have due population .
Given them the money early only meant a delay in needing more hand outs.
Its like the keystone cops running football here.

We need approval to resign, can you imagine the uproar if we did.
They all wanted us out 8 years ago, the uproar would only be for the money they woud loose
Visiting fans, tv interest finished, sponsorship.

It’s a comedy show. I’m honestly past the point of caring - the spfl will get what they want, hearts will stay up, same with Partick etc. Everyone will forget about corporate governance issues and Rangers will look like the bad guys for taking it any further.
Its kind of looking that way. I'm actually starting to wonder if there is any point in next season.

Letter to Neil .

For the good of Scottish football. We have heard this phrase many times since Coronagate. What is good for Scottish football ? Come on Neil, you get paid a ridiculous salary for running and improving the game. What is your plan for bringing in better sponsorship deals, TV deals, and increasing crowds?
You do have a plan Neil, don't you? Because as a fan of the game I don't see any evidence of improvement, or quality. All I see is the destruction that you and your buddies have brought upon clubs due to your mismanagement and shady practices.

So don't sit there doing nothing except threatening clubs when it was your lack of vision, and openness to corruption, that has got these clubs in to the mess they are currently in.

You are a charlatan.

This is spot on, isolate Rangers from everyone else and they can do what they want, when they want.
We must take this to court asap

Get this through, to avoid court action by hearts that could overturn original corrupt vote. Keeps them champions by default, job done. Corrupt to the core!

There has been a valid reason for reconstruction for the past decade.

Saving Hearts bacon isn't a reason to force it through.

Hearts to avoid relegation and Dundee to be part of the top division - who would have thought that possible? Some may even think that a deal may have been struck a little while ago.

And if this is such a necessity, why were Hearts and not the SPFL spearheading this?

Even if you had Dominic Cummings dodgy eyesight, you can still see that this lot are a f@*king joke.

Doncaster knows fine well that the game is up if Hearts and Thistle go legal. Restructure and the difficulty from this source goes away. Simples!

This is corrupt as f.uck .

only a few weeks ago , Doncaster was saying tovote against Rangers resolution to save Scottish football .

this has been engineered to firstly hand Celtic the title by any means possible and to now save hearts and avoid any legal problems .

He likes his little warnings Dungcaster which are acually threats to make clubs vote in the way he wants. And in all of this farce the majority of the SPFL clubs dont think an investigation was needed to see the true dealings of these buffoons? Its unbelievable.
