I never said I was consistent..

I think the situations are different - MK stole a club.  Celtic and Rangers are historic clubs who suffer from the, albeit professional, league that they play in.  When that situation occurs in our country - which is the UK (we've conned FIFA and most of the world for a long time that England is a nation) - it doesn't make a lot of sense.  And yes - if you take that to its logical conclusion, I would support a UK premier league, with regionalised lower divisions.

That's fair enough. And I could see the argument for that, but if we're going to do that, we should do that, not half-arse it. How would promotion work though? Automatic admission to the UKPL for one team each from the English, Welsh, Scottish and Norn Irish football leagues (I could see the likes of Linfield struggling on their turn)? Or two teams each into a round-robin play off? Or weighted according to some kind of horrific UEFA-coefficient style system?

Stuff that. I bloody wouldn't, it would be crap.

And when it comes to football, we are England. The UK only existed for one Olympic games in my lifetime.

It seems pretty simple to me.

If you are welsh you should be in the welsh league. If you are scottish you play in the scottish league.

Couldn't give a fuck about Rangers or Celtic for that matter. rangers are bent as fuck and as for Celtic they'd bring more supporters to away games than the bloody home fans

Do we really want hordes of hairy-arsed jocks running amok in our green and pleasant land?

Rangers...

After spending/wasting 70m in 2 years by winning the lowest two divisions, despite having the 2nd biggest turnover in Scottish football they want another 30m 'invested'.

A friend of mine who is a Man U fan facebooked the other day

'Moyes gets the boot, United share price increases by nearly 8% on the NYSE.'

I messaged back

'Football thing happens, fan talks about the stock exchange. I know its the way of things but I just wish it wasnt so'

When something you love becomes purely a business, its time to start reassessing your love.

Agreed the way Rangers have conducted themselves in the lower leagues, financially, is a disgrace.

Chester getting relegated on goal difference. After all their struggles in recent years I was hoping they could stay up after their rise through the leagues. You have to wonder if they can bounce back again. Hope they do

One of the many benefits accruing when the Sweaties vote Yes in September, is that we'll be able to ditch the pretence that anyone is interested in Scottish football, and not clutter up media with the results of Brechin City etc.

Not certain how it will effect Berwick Rangers mind, as I'm unsure UEFA will sanction them competing in a foreign country.
