We're being relegated in to a league that doesn't exist.

Realistically there's a situation where we could not be starting our league season till January but still have to get the players sorted to play one scottish cup semi in like August / September. Monty Ha

Not sure how that's supposed to work from a preseason training / squad building point of view.

January weather is usually kind to games being played in the lower leagues and games are never cancelled. So should all work out well. Woy

Can she get a seat on the board if she’s not affiliated or attached to a club? Surely she’s heading out the door when the takeover is complete, so why not go down in a blaze of glory? Jezza

On that note, summer football should be discussed. If there's nothing until Jan-Feb, to get a full season, move the calendar.

What is their reasons for mothballing lower leagues as I thought these were the teams who had to get back to normality ASAP?

Costs more to play games than it does to not play them due to low gates. Safer to not play otherwise they’ll all go into admin

Have a short break. Its can be worked around if there's a will to do so. Other countries seem to manage it well enough.

Shows how bad things are going to be when they are releasing club and vice captain Eek

Most clubs are going to be on a skeleton staff until we know what’s happening.

Need to get a PR expert in and start to build the story of an angry, disgruntled and bitter SPFL deliberately trying to damage Hearts as much as possible. The narrative is there, just need to sell it.

Who has Jim Traynor’s number?

This is honestly not at all surprising news. The Premiership will be struggling to start never mind the Scottish Championship which is a nothing league with clubs who will struggle to host matches. Just read Dunfermline have released 17 players!  What a complete shambles. Epic failure from Budge and Levein, epic.
