Scottish League Cup Group Stage Draw - 1pm

🔴⚪️ Come on you Reds! ⚪🔴

Dons to Join New European League???

Recommended Posts





Scotland's top clubs are to discuss the possibility of being part of a new European regional league set-up.


Proposals are already being discussed by clubs on the Continent and it is believed their Scottish counterparts do not want to be left behind.


The idea will be floated at a reconstruction strategy meeting involving Scotland's three main governing bodies next week.


It is among a number of ideas being considered to improve the game.


European football's governing body, Uefa, is believed to be becoming increasingly concerned by the polarisation across the game between the top clubs and top leagues and is open to change.


The idea of regional leagues involving neighbouring countries and so-called Supra National Cup Tournaments has already been discussed at a recent European Club Association meeting in Switzerland.


Aberdeen, Celtic, Hearts and Rangers are all part of the association and will be part of the domestic discussions next week along with the Scottish Football Association, the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish Football League.


BBC Scotland has learned that the European idea will be discussed - along with reconstruction, cash distribution and a pyramid system - when all parties meet next week.


After a summer of discontent in Scottish football, there is a feeling that radical change is needed to fix the game and move it forward.

Why would a shell company currently being liquidated be in discussions about a new Euro League?


Unless, as a result of lazy journalism, Sevco 5088 Ltd trading as "The Rangers" have been confused for former football club "Rangers". In which case why is the 4th place in the Third Division club representing Scotland's top clubs?

If such a thing comes to pass and contains a team named aberdeen it won't be aberdeen as i know them.


We currently have the first spl since it was created which is genuinely wide open for anyone to win, and now is the time our governing body want to throw the towel in??


As for being a party to rangers' escape clause from oblivion? Fuck right off!

Current Set Up Works... Why mess with it?


Does it?  I personally cannot abide the top six/bottom six split, and I doubt it's not a coincidence that the national team hasn't qualified for a major tournament since the SPL was formed.  I still think we need a complete overhaul of Scottish football.


But not if it benefits newco!  ;)
