I would like to hear what your opinions are on these five clubs doing a review into the finances of the league. With four of the club's being owned by Americans I think they will be pushing to make the league a franchise and all revenues will be shared amongst all the teams. I for one would not be happy with this. Imagine buying your rangers top and your season ticket and your money goes to Aberdeen or Dundee utd.
There are ways to bring in money to the league but sadly we have people doing the negotiations that bite the hand off the first offer, never doing the maths or comparing to other leagues. Say hypothetically both the old firm get into the champions League, one of the rest went into the Europa League and two into the conference. That would be about £120m for five teams for a season. When the league gets £150m for five seasons then really we must be looking for a deal that reflects what we are potentially chasing in Europe. So £500m for 5 years would allow use to achieve the European success. In England they get crazy Money understandably their product is better but their best players aren't English, Scottish players leave here to play in England to earn more money even in the lower leagues imagine if we could afford to keep them then it would improve our league but help the development of youth. Gilmour, Robertson, Tierney, mcginn, fleck, McArthur, Fletcher, mcgeady, Armstrong and more to come have went down there and never looked out of place and a few are the best players at their clubs. If we got better TV deals clubs would get used to money and not crap themselves when someone bid £1.5m for their star players. We need to charge more. Mcginn didn't go from £3m to a £50m in a couple of months but if we don't rate our league or players in the top bracket other certainly won't to our faces. When someone buys a Tierney or a mcginn they are laughing at Scotland at how easy it is to get a player cheaply. So when sky come in with their £30m a season deal chairman that deal in hundreds rather than millions think they've won a watch then when it's levelled out and it's peanuts they blame the two clubs who normally object to those derisory deals because they are successful but because of their cheapskate peers they will never reach their potential but the get the blame for it. If they did go down the franchise route but the old firm were able to leave which now with the Belgian/ Dutch agreement starting in 2025 isn't as much of an impossibility as before. Would Aberdeen, Hibs, Dundee and the likes want to share their cash with livi or Hamilton accies. No chance. Hopefully they come up with outside investment but I have a suspicion that their investment will be internal from two teams already in the league.

Nobody really wants to watch the SPL on a global scale atm its not a great product and on the whole has no quality what so ever out side the OF, blame that on the playing pool, schools, Scot Gov, coaching and chairmen/ women. However it can still be marketed. I would start with clubs that can't fill stadiums, no atmosphere=not good to watch, getting all stadiums filled would be a start, use the money to invest in better players and it rolls on. Lower quality football can be great watch with a bit of jeopardy and atmosphere and the right marketing.

As far as buying Scot and other players on the cheap, that's life, we've done it for decades and continue to do it.

Tjbb that is the same apathy the people brokering these deals have it's no wonder you feel that way but if a game in the premiership gets £7.5m but the winners of the spfl gets £3m then the suits we got in to run it are not up to it. How much does the 4 old firm games bring in a season? More than we get. When do you see the league or the press try and talk up, put on a positive spin or sell our product. We are more interested in the compliance officer. As I gave the example of with maximum European money potentially on offer should our domestic deals not reflect what we want to challenge for. If we got the golden scenario of 5 group stages teams what happens to the rest of the league it can't compete. We need to think where we want to go and how to get there not staying the same a resenting success. Take match of the day it's about an £800m deal. The TV licence is compulsory therefore sportscene should have 10% of what match of the day gets and that shouldn't be up for debate. Add that kind of money to our game and we have a brand that is sellable and worth watching. The greed of the premiership is unbelievable they have the biggest income of all leagues yet make £600m in losses every year. That should be illegal. We got suits instead of expros and I know Maxwell played but so did don Robertson. We have ex players and managers from the top level that the suits are nowhere near. We need change now and balls.

I'm not to clued up on this but if they all want to knock their heads together and if it's for the good of the game and explore financial avenues etc then why not.


4.) 18 Sep 2021 23:48:14
Feel your pain Livi, I don't watch MOTD much these days or EPL sterile games, for the money in that league you don't get the equivalent quality or excitement really don't see the attraction not pretty football however go back to the late 90s that was entertaining stuff and made the EPL what it is today.

Now we have qualified, does anyone think we will make anymore signings. The current situation with C.V. has shown us to be light. If we signed more midfielders just now. Put young Kelly out on loan for the season we will need them for next year. Davis and arfield may have this year but the next would be a bridge too far. Kamara and maybe aribo will be looking to move but could stay for the automatic cl place but still we will need cover. We've always moved quite fast when bringing in players so in my opinion we should do it now. Win the league straight into the group stages so we should go for it. What does everyone else think?

Shouldnt matter. Prize money for conference and EL are similar so no reason why we shouldn't have by now.

Sell Kent tomorrow, sign veerman and skov olsen.

1.) 19 Aug 2021 22:18:03
Ivibear have u 1st hand knowledge of Veerman or slow cause I'd never heard of him until we were linked. Kent is quality buy not showing it ATM its up to gaffer to find out if its loss of form or loss of int if latter sell if 1st let's get behind the boy.


2.) 19 Aug 2021 23:35:22
Maybe we could give Lundstrum away free with anyone that b buys Kent!


3.) 20 Aug 2021 06:40:31
Kent is not quality.

Im really annoyed with this strip so much so I've started a petition on change.org if anyone feels the same http://chng.it/GykhB4YHqf this is our 150th anniversary and this really isn't acceptable.

I've said for long enough castroe are coining it in from Rangers fans.


2.) 11 Aug 2021 14:51:36
Fair enough if you don't like it Livibear but many will. A petition is a bit strong my friend. Also leaves it open to abuse and by that I mean non Rangers fans adding their name to the petition to create a story. I can see the headline now "Thousands of Rangers fans sign petition against kit makers Castore" when in fact not many Rangers fans will sign it at all.

I don't like it either but I certainly won't be signing your petition mate.


3.) 11 Aug 2021 14:59:56
Castore have been a disaster. For a 'premium' manufacturer their designs are mince and the third kit is literally the worst of my lifetime.


4.) 11 Aug 2021 15:00:25
Let's deal with the fundamentals first! The top's honking, but get real!


5.) 11 Aug 2021 15:11:59
MOC it’s the worst strip I have seen in football history.

Its Scotland mate. I definitely think there is something in the drugs claim why else would we bin all these players who end up going to the EPL. It is better to get them all gone though rather than letting to rot set into the whole academy.

He takes too many touches. Lots of skill that can't be denied but decision making can be awful. As gets older he will iron out the problems in his game but at present it can be really annoying. Back heelers and passes that go to the opposition seem to happen all the time. Its one thing a striker keeping trying even after missing 80% of his shots as mccoist would admit to, but a player constantly trying fancy skills when the simple pass is on is unforgivable. Kent is similar the think I like about Wright over Kent is that Wright will turn just as good as Kent take on a man and get his pass off and move into an area to receive the return pass. Kent will beat the man turn back beat him again then run around the door closing into the areas his team mates have taken up therefore cancelling them out of the game when he does make a pass much of the time it's because he has run out of ideas rather than came up with new ones. This is the reason for Kent's assist rate being so low. Granted the boy can turn players inside out but like aribo he holds onto it too long turning his own players inside out and losing the opportunity to score more goals, it is the reason we don't get the same amount of goals from our strikers roofe runs into Morelos's space as he wants to be in the box rather than jockey in and out. Roofe may get goals but along with Kent and aribo they also stop them. Sometimes simple is better especially when you are a team that will have 70+% possession.

He had a good season last year but really was a bombscare the years before and made big Bert look like maldini. I will support anyone who plays for us but if he want to leave let him go as we really could do with an upgrade especially if we want champions League football. I think goldson thinks he is much better than he is and our club hasn't seen his likes before. Let's face it 25-30 years ago he wouldn't have got on the bench for our reserves. Bring in doekhi and someone else.

Lindstrom didn't put a foot wrong tonight and was probably the best player at the weekend but you just keep bitching. It's funny once fans and the press state someone isn't doing well then that's all people see. Some can watch a game and really not see what's happening only what is predetermined in their mind. First half we weren't clicking but second half was decent. Morelos doesn't look unfit I'd say he is probably thinking too much about breaking through the 100 barrier. I personally think roofe runs into the same space and cancels out Alfredo and the way they play floating from deep into the box and wide, sakala would be a better partner for Alfredo as they both jockey around the box were roofe likes to be in the box more. When you play three upfront they all should move in and out each other I feel roofe gets in the way of others in that position. Wright is also just coming back from injury but you seem to have it all worked out mate.

The problem for me is aribo and kamara have no challengers to their starting position both have been shocking with their passing and aribo is like Kent in that he takes far too many touches. Simple football is needed and more polished passing. On Thursday the amount of lazy and misplaced balls cost us the game as we have enough to beat Lyon, but those lazy balls and too many touches won't work against a team that presses as hard as that. First have today we were good second half we thought we were too good. Onwards and upwards the Tims got beat 🤣🤣🇬🇧🇬🇧.
