Promote Dundee United and play the play off games behind closed doors between Ayr Utd, Dundee and Inverness caledonian Thistle.

Next season trial 14 team league season for two years.

Play each other twice - 26 games. Split into 7 and play each other twice - 12 = 38 games a season.

This isn't pie in the sky - we should be pushing this. Aberdeen got out of relegation due to league expansion. I think this works for all parties, including TV companies as there will be a guaranteed - OF derby/Edinburgh derby/Lanarkshire derby and one of highland derby/tayside derby/ayrshire derby as things stand.

Also the wee teams like Hamilton are guarenteed safety and get the big gates from Dundee United and Hearts fans next season.

How can we get traction with this? Seriously, everyone wins.


Budge. Get on this.

I'm all for this and its ideally laid out. However the only reason I think it will fall down is the leagues TV deal with Sky. 

Sky are only interested in the old firm lets be honest. The current league set up guarantees a minimum four old firm games a season whereas the 14 team structure only allows for three. And I wouldn't be surprised if the TV deal in place just now means there must be four of them a season unfortunately.

You can have 4 old firm games, just need to have the split happen slightly earlier.

I agree wholeheartedly with your league reconstruction plans in that case.

The Sun has a proposed plan for a 14 team league

Splits after 26 games, top 8 go on to play home and away for 14 games the remaining teams are joined by 2 teams from the championships for their remaining games.

Seems fair, but they still didn't really say anything about this season, but presumably the entire league results are expunged.

Utter nonsense thinking you can call the winner, but save the bottom team. Wiggo
