The Huns are just playing up to their kappa-wearing crowd.

 

They know they’ve got zero chance of winning the league.

Teams have blown League titles from similar positions that Celtic find themselves in. 

The Rangers have nine games to play two of them against Celtic. 

There is an arrogance about Celtics position. Assuming that Rangers won't beat them twice and assuming that they are incapable of dropping four points in the other six games. 

It's as bent as a nine bob note.

You think the huns (or us) would give a shiny shite about that if they where top and Hibs bottom? 😁

Nope. But we are so we might as well do everything we can to stop this going ahead. Just like every other club in our situation would.

This is an extract from an article on the BBC relating to Rangers request to release prizemoney early.

 

And the Ibrox club say they have had "numerous reports" from Scottish sides of "attempts to coerce and bully them" into backing the SPFL's own proposal.

Celtic are a disgrace. We should ensure they are never given to tickets at Tynecastle ever again.

Probably

That doesn’t mean they don’t have a valid argument.

Not just her, Kate Brockendale iirc??, there are several scientists saying similar. I agree though, all have different views and we can't just pick out one. I was just pointing that for all the doom mongers that think we'll be imprisoned in our homes for ever more, there are other voices out there

Nobody knows how this will run. The 1919 flu pandemic had two waves, the second worse than the first, then disappeared due to mutating to a weaker version they reckon. The issue is that Football is at the bottom of the ‘restore normality’ pile.

I think 16/16/14 is best way forward.

 

Split leagues after 30 games. Top 6 play each other twice, so sky get their 4 OF games a season. Bottom 10 once. Makes 40 & 39 games. 

 

Bottom team relegated. 2nd bottom and to 3 in league below have English style play offs - semi final and final at neutral venue.

 

Bottom league incorporates top 2 from highland and lowland league where bottom 2 are relegated and replaced by winner of highland and lowland league.

Even if it is a close no, it’s actually very concerning that almost 75% of our clubs would vote for this.  Or even more concerning that the SPFL haven’t put a better option in the table.  Maybe Doncaster could resign and give up some of his massive wages to help the lower league clubs.

No problem. 

Obviously we all want the people you quote to be correct. 👍

It's also about football in general. 

I binned sky sports years ago, binned the national team about 4 years ago. 

 

Most are over paid bloated arseholes 

£500k/week contracts getting handed out. 

 

Uefa is run by about 8 clubs. 

 

Closer to home our shite House league is owned by 2 clubs and ran for these two horrible ******* clubs. 

 

Hamilton are on the board of the committee , just about sums up the voting system. 

 

 

 

I mostly agree, bud. 

 

I've long since become jaded and depressed with football in general. I've actually never subscribed to Sky or others. If Hearts aren't involved I've little interest and English and CL football leave me cold. Andy Roxburgh, Craigie Broon and the SFA kicked out any slight interest I ever had in the Scotland team years ago. 

 

But turn my back on The Hearts? 

 

Never. 

 

I don't think you will, either. 😊😉

80% are not DUE to get it. That figure is trotted out because it is the absolute maximum infection rate possible because at that point the virus dies out. They predict now that 5% have had it....if 80% are going to get it then we might as well just forget the lockdown and get on with life.  If, as is happening, the infection rate decreases then in a few weeks hospital admissions will decrease and eventually deaths too. Most of the experts agree that a blunt tool, as the lockdown is, is not sustainable for more than a couple of months.

Hate to go off topic but the lockdown is a bit futile while planes from US , Spain and China,  for example, arrive at UK airports daily and the passengers are not checked at UK airports. 20 glights from US alone due to land at Heathrow tomorrow, mental.

If we are relegated that's Palmerston off the  away day list along with Raith.


I can’t make up my mind whether I’d turn my back on Scottish football or just boycott certain clubs. Similar dilemma to when they were voting to allow Sevco into the league.

I tend to follow the UK briefings tbh, they provide far more clarity, the scientists present graphs and clarification and, generally, more detailed information.  Although early days, they expect the peak to be over the next week or so and they do seem in agreement that the curve of new infections is starting to flatten. They now seem focussed on the exit strategy and releasing the lockdown. The FM is out of step with the opinions of most scientists if she thinks the peak will come in the Autumn.  In the end, her hands will be tied by what happens at a UK level

Different interpretation of yesterday’s UK briefing Enzo. All three said it was far too early to even start thinking about an exit strategy. That’s the temp PM, chief scientist and chief medic. None of them suggested that they knew when the peak would be. All three said they would let the science guide them over the coming weeks and that at the moment the science didn’t suggest relaxing any measures. What briefing did you watch?

Too fecking right.  No need to spout sporting integrity though it’s dog eat dog.  Keep Dundee Utd down if it comes to it.

You could argue that we have reached a peak today but we still have 40 - 50 dying every day and this will go on for months. 80% of us are due to contract the disease so unless a vaccine can be found this lockdown will be with us for a long long time to come. 

 

That is the worst case scenario.

Totally agree EIEIO. It's madness. Why are we all socially distancing while we possibly import more cases without even testing them??

Never turn my back on Hearts, it's a personal choice 're other clubs though. I stopped going to Ibrox and Parkhead about 20 years ago as have most Jambos for a variety of reasons. Mine was a combination of having young kids and giving £20+ to the evil twins.

My anger has switched from the smaller clubs to Celtic and the SPFL. 

They are clearly bullying the other clubs. 

I still think if we go down we look after ourselves and donate away ticket money to FOH. 

Nothing to do with revenge just pure economics. Hearts are in line to lose a lot of money over this. We need to get some of it back. In addition to the above immediately after our fate is decided if its negative we should apply article 12 to all our duds and save money that way.

The clubs being bullied should say so then.  What have they got to lose?  Unless the huns are lying?

 

 

I would imagine there will be a lot of lobbying going on around the clubs trying to sway clubs to vote the way they want and this will be where they are getting this impression from. I am not sure even the Huns would lie about something like this.

In terms of the length of the lockdown it's probably sensible to look at Wuhan where they took similar measures to the ones we're taking. They started in January and began easing off in the last couple of weeks, so roughly three months. Taking that as a very rough guide I think we're looking at easing off here around the end of May.

Matt Hancock mentioned, a couple of days ago, the peak coming within the next week.  All 3 yesterday mentioned the curve flattening and cases starting to go down over the next couple weeks. They maybe didn't mention it directly yesterday but, by definition,  if we are flattening out then we will be reaching the peak soon.

It’s also not true, it’s tory propaganda designed to force us back to work.. given the R0 of this disease all 80% or 50 million will contract the virus within a year. Given 10% require a hospital visit that would mean 5million require hospitalisation, and 60+ million dead globally.  
 

if that is accurate we may as well give up the lockdown now and start building morgues ..

The only news I can find on Hibs voting no is based on assumption that they would lose points and not get certain amount of money, also losing a euro placing.  So we aint going to get a secure no vote from Hibs. 😔

 

Might be some news later before 5 but I doubt it.

They expect social distancing to reduce the RO to less than 1 so that will be goodnight midnight for the virus.

Nah I would never trust a thing they say, ever.  Good news the top teams are backing out this though.

Our understanding at Record Sport is that this is how the top flight clubs are voting:

CELTIC - YES

HAMILTON - YES

KILMARNOCK - YES

LIVINGSTON - YES

MOTHERWELL - YES

ST MIRREN - YES

ST JOHNSTONE - YES

RANGERS - NO

HEARTS - NO

ABERDEEN - NO

HIBS - UNDECLARED

ROSS COUNTY - UNDECLARED

Votes needed: 9

Yes: 7

No: 3

Undeclared: 2

10:57
 
As it now seems HIbs are voting yes that makes Ross Co the important vote if this is to be believed.

What happened to AB fighting this in the Courts?

 

Budge gives her take

Ann Budge has revealed she doesn’t believe the SPFL’s proposal will be voted through - but will accept the outcome if it is.

The Hearts owner is angry at the plans which could see her side relegated despite being just four points behind 11th with 24 points left to play for.

But after conversations with clubs in the top two leagues, she doesn’t expect it to garner enough support.

She said:

“Based on the conversations I have had - and I’ve talked to a number of clubs in the Premiership and Championship although I haven’t talked to League One or Two clubs because I don’t have the ready contacts - but I don’t believe this will be supported.

“We are where we are in the league positions and if everything is talked about and that is what the community of football clubs believe is right then I will not fight it till the death. How is that going to end?

“If we have to deal with relegation we will deal with relegation.

“But I do just keep coming back to the point of who is going to benefit?”

Alternatively it seems that leagues 2 and 3 combined will only reach a max of 14 votes anyway. Presumably if 1 leagues votes fail the whole thing does.

It would pass is 9 teams vote yes. But it also requires 8 teams from Championship and 15 teams from.league 2 and 3 combined to pass.

I started following Hearts at the start of the 1957/58 season. A lot of my memories are a bit hazy. 

From my own recollections and those of older family members the board of Hearts would have sold their grannies for a shilling. They sold Dave Mackay when he didn't even want to go. Not only that he went for a fraction of his worth. 

They then proceeded to sell both Alex Young and George Thomson in a double transfer to Everton thus breaking up the title winning side of 1960.

Not content with that there was the treatment of Willie Bauld with the club charging him expenses for his testimonial match even charging for the match ball. Willie Wallace to Celtic for 30k WTF. 

I could go on on and on but I'm sure folk get the gist. 

So would the Hearts board of the 50s and 60s have held the team together in modern day football ? 😂😂😂😂


My stepdad still cites that as one if the most criminal acts by our board at the time. Apparently Jock Stein said of the transfer that he had just signed an entire forward line for £30k, or words to that effect.
