    4 top flight Swiss teams refused licence to play due to financial concerns

    4 of the 10 teams in Switzerland's top-flight Axpo Super League have been refused licence to play in 2012-13 season on financial concerns

    A sign of things to come?

    FC Zurich and Young Boys - two of Switzerland's biggest clubs - are among four top-flight teams who have been refused a licence to compete in the country's first division next season, the league said on Monday. Sion, deducted 36 points this season in a legal row, and financially-troubled Servette Geneva were also turned down in the first instance as the league got tough following a year which saw Neuchatel Xamax kicked out of the championship.

    Hopefully but I wouldnae haud my breath waiting for the clowns that run the game in this country tae get things done properly and take the appropriate action. They've got their heids buried too far up the OF erse and are mair concerned with trying tae make up new rules and find ways tae make sure the stickies are playing top flight fitba next season tae pay much attention tae anything else.

    Schwein!!

    But, if it happens to HOMFC and/or RFC, then it will be a stellar and correct decision.

    I presume that the Swiss league doesnt have a TV deal then, because as far as I am led to believe its financial insanity to chuck even one of your big clubs in those circumstances.


    Isnt it ?

    Fancy that - you'd imagine there'd be enough financiers in Switzerland to ensure that things were in order! Or failing that sort out a loan or five?About effing time this game of lemmings ended - hopefully with Blatter and his cronies beingPushed off the cliff ;)

    Yep, I went to see them when they won the "promotion Play Off" against Bellinzone last May and it was really spooky being surrounded by so much Maroon.
    [I think they call it "grenadine" but to me it's maroon...]

    I hope they manage to stay up because it would be great if they got into Europe and we drew them. You would think a city as rich as Geneva would have no problems funding one football team but history says otherwise. I guess the big banking guys just do not want to take the risk of any possible financial mismanagement, like they had with the last owner.

    Don't forget Grasshoppers. Not sure I could actually support a team with a name like that though.
