    Yet they continue to exist and provide a source of pride and enjoyment to their local communities. It’s been bigger clubs who have gone closest to disappearing, look at Sevco, Hearts, Dundee etc. Scottish football would be much poorer without these ‘wee’ clubs.
    It was purely an observation, not an advocation of mergers, shutting them down etc etc.

    I love wee clubs, they are part of the fabric of Scottish society. But there can't be any argument that they would be better served playing in a more regionalised set up at the level they are at. What's the sense in having Peterhead travel to Annan or Berwick? Surely they'd be better served in a regional league until promotion to the "championship" is achieved?

    That way they wouldn't have to spend money on unnecessary travel until they were playing bigger teams, and in turn having bigger teams visit them and boost their income.

    Wholesale British league with Scottish/Welsh/NI teams being added to leagues on basis of market value - would put us/Hearts/Aberdeen in League One somewhere.
    Retain Scottish Cup with same format as before.
    Replace all national League Cups with British Cup - semi finals at neutral venues equidistant from the two teams involved (i.e. not London/Glasgow) and final rotating between Wembley, Millennium Stadium, an expanded Hampden Park and an NI stadium if one is built to an acceptable capacity.

    Or if the above are unfeasible, then just do the British Cup thing.
    Why? It would be won by English teams for he rest of time.

    Really good interview with our CEO, worth a listen:

    https://open.spotify.com/show/41roAvo3SkUAnlqNaFiR3J
    How can you interview LD about:

    - taking over Hibs and barely mention Butcher/Malpas?
    - the cup final and not mention the pitch invasion?
    - this season and nothing about NL?

    I mean maybe she didn't want to talk over anything controversial but it was like Gerry Adams' autobiography!
