Playing the same 7 teams twice the second half of the season and no doubt some cup ties involving those teams.

It'll get repetitive very quickly.

We play 11 teams three times before a split in April for the final 5.

This proposal means from January we'll only play against the same 7 teams.

Not quite the same against each team is it? We'd only play the 'bottom' lot twice rather than three times.

The most games we play against any one team just now is 4 which will remain the same. Instead of playing 6 teams 3 times and 5 teams 4 times we’d play 6 teams twice and 7 teams 4 times. The difference to counter your point about repetition is instead of facing 11 teams in total we’d actually face at least 13 different teams in the league. You’d have to hope Hearts pull the fucking finger out and aren’t bottom 8!!

Imagine when we were being managed by Robbo in 04/05 and Robinson had practically signed the contracts to turn Tynecastle into flats, some VS type guy came over to you drunk and described the future of Hearts from '05 to 2020. You'd never believe it Warnock

It all culminates in a documentary and a global pandemic Zlat

Aye but what I mean is there is variation throughout the second half of the season right now. These proposals mean from January you're playing the same 7 teams twice for 4 months.

But saying that, I am making an assumption the top 8 will generally be the same each year. To be fair, the perk to this setup is that we play home and away before the split and there could actually be some variation in the top 8, unlike the current setup where there is an imbalance of home/away fixtures which sees teams away at either of Old Firm twice.

I know you're not meant to blame the victim but he clearly loves the attention he gets from these bams that abuse him. Odd stuff.
