Didn't see this posted elsewhere so apologies if it is!!

I could be wrong but how about instead of having games on friday afternoons in April why don't we just play some games in March, maybe i am using some common sense or something which is why this idea will get rejected!!! Also wasn't there a lot of moaning that a bigger league would lose gate receipt money for clubs...surely having games when the fans are at their work won't be good for clubs bank balances!!

"I don't have control over the League Cup or the Scottish Cup" - i guess this is one major problem, the fact that we have so many organisations organising SCOTTISH FOOTBALL and none of the lot of them could organise a piss up in a brewery!!!

You can be sure that this won't happen unless Walter gives it his approval. Why, oh why can't they see that football is in a bad way and organising games when a huge number of people will definitely not be able to attend is just another nail in it's coffin.

They are talking about public holidays, like the 29th which is the royal wedding, so as long as the Huns aren't asked to play it should be alright :wink:













I know, not everbody gets public holidays or even the same public holidays

:agree: This would be much preferable to Sunday midday KOs

Here's the correct link.

Another bonkers idea from the suits. As if everyone, or even a convincing majority, of people will get both those days off.
