    Junior football is literally dying on its arse. Superb comparison. All their clubs are joining the senior set up.

    I want a football set up that is based on a clubs footballing ability. Very simple!
    Agree, and one that promotes without the need for extended play offs designed to give the higher club an advantage as there is in the Championship and Highland/Lowland leagues.

    Totally for playoffs not the top and bottom ones the way they are.

    It’s interesting that “the next biggest 5” are getting together to discuss what might be done. This is the size of Scottish club who have underperformed quite horrendously over the past 30 years or so. Rangers and Celtic do what they do, their big crowds and European appearances generate results generally proportionate to that revenue. Clubs like St Johnstone, Ross County, Motherwell should really be applauded for the trophies they’ve won and players they’ve produced.

    The 5 clubs mentioned? Ok, Aberdeen haven’t been relegated, but between Hibs, Hearts, Dundee United and Dundee you’ve got a couple of relegations each. Hearts and Dundee (at least once) have an insolvency event. There’s the odd cup win in there, and we shouldn’t easily dismiss the work these clubs have had to do since Hillsborough to get their grounds in order but the underachievement of Scotland’s biggest clubs out with the OF over the past quarter century or so has been shameful.

    I’m glad they’re getting together to discuss it but remain a wee bit cynical about what they might come up with.
    Very good post.

    Two full time leagues of 12 teams
    Phase 1 22 qualifying games
    Phase 2 split 8/8/8
    All points returned to Zero round of 14 games.
    Phase 3 top 4 play off for Premiership
    38 game season

    Bottom 4 seeded play off against top 4 in tier 2 home and away 38 game season.

    Middle 8 see above

    Bottom 8 same up to play offs then bottom 4 play off to avoid a relegation play off against the pyramid winners

    Sound familiar? You can bet your 'tache on it
    Far too messy that.

    100%. Not helped by the amount of different bodies overseeing leagues. For example 2 different ones at tier 5, 3 at tier 6 - meaning clubs depending on their location start at a different point of the pyramid.
