Us doing well in the Scottish Cup is his only hope of surviving. We are going to struggle for top 6 by the looks of it.

Whoopey doo.

Do we need to speculate until January?

Most will forgive a defeat against the Tims.

The next two games after that are Livingston & St Mirren at home. It’ll be a different story if we don’t get two wins there.

Budgets mean nothing.

Nonsense. This is why the richest teams win most of the time.

If it was all about budgets you would just go by that and hearts wouldnt of been relegated twice in the last 5 years

It's not "all about" budgets. But it's definitely the most important factor in who wins and who loses.

If it wasn't all about the budgets then why have only oldco/sevco and Celtic won the league in the past 35 years? The longest run of champions without a winner from "provincial" clubs ever. The previous longest run was of 27 consecutive championships between them way back from 1905 to 1931

They don't win all the cups because they're essentially  sprint competitions and they can occasionally draw each other before the final leaving provincial teams only to deal with one half of them.

To say budgets “mean nothing” is nonsense.

Look around the league tables in Europe.

Yes that is a terrible stat but in the  90’s I recon we should of won the league twice and I’m pretty sure we didn’t have the highest budget in any of those seasons.

In leagues around Europe there are teams in the leagues that are doing far worse with bigger budgets than ones above them.

You can’t say “budgets mean nothing”.

That’s just daft, come on.

They’re a fairly decent guide how leagues end up.

So they do mean something.

Hearts and Hibs are tinpot shite though. Hardly a new thing them yo-yoing between divisions

If it was ALL about budgets then the likes of Leicester wouldn’t have won the league that year, must have been 6 teams at least with better budgets, as did Donetsk last year,Kiev won as did the Italian league, inter won, as did Copenhagen, mijtland won, plenty of teams that underperformed and didn’t win the league 

fucks sake Lille won the league a couple of years ago with Paris in it,with mbappe,neymar etc. The difference is in those countries they aren’t skewed to only have their biggest teams win it if a Roy of the rovers type story happens unlike our tinpot country. Any chance of an upset and the media would go into overdrive as would the lovely unbiased refs!.unless bigotry and bias is cleaned up,(in all aspects)their won’t be another winner other than those 2 for the next 40 years.

Is anyone thinking it's seriously possible that only Celtic or rangers will ever win the league again, ?

Look at Ukrainian football, since the inception of their league in 92 (post communism) it’s only been shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kiev that’s won the league since 1992.shows what happens when a league gets corrupted, obviously that’s more political than bigotry but same results

Yep, until such a time that a Fergie type character, with an axe to grind against the arse cheeks, manages a provincial club.

He never took second best at Dons or Man United. 

Otherwise the only way a non arse cheek club is going to win league is a) if the arse cheeks fuck off to England or b) foreign refs are employed.

Yes. Unless there is substantial investment in a significant number of other clubs in the top league, and I can't see that happening any time soon with that clown Doncaster at the helm, Happy to accept sky's pocket change for a TV deal (I assume that the top two teams still split the majority of this) and barely manages to get sponsorship deals. Scottish football desperately needs teams like Aberdeen, hibs, hearts and Dundee United to be capable of putting in a challenge, however due the the powers that be, the game in Scotland has over the last 20 odd years been engineered to ensure that only two clubs can win.

So apart from these odd occasions, how have these leagues gone over the last, say 15-20 years?

Ps inter are hardly a team with a small budget...

The evidence points to that being the case.

For someone else to win it, either there would have to be a serious alteration in the rules to restrict their financial advantage (extremely unlikely)........or a club up here manages to attract a seriously wealthy new owner who lobs in massive wedges of cash (and the SFA don't suddenly decide to then change the rules because of it to protect the interests of their favoured duo).......or the arse cheeks fuck off to a new league elsewhere (without having the rules altered to suddenly allow their colts sides to progress through the league system)

A larger league with teams playing each other twice would be the best way for other teams to compete.

I think it’s possible but need to get very lucky with recruitment and Celtic and rangers have a bit of a dodgy season. Our biggest problem is that it won’t be long until 1 if not both are in the CL every season while we can’t even make the conference. It’s all very well then saying we benefit from a strong coefficient but the 5m benefit to us if we qualify is outweighed by OF getting a extra 40m each. I’d rather none of us got into Europe as it would hurt them way more than us.

Odd occasion ? So Ukraine for an example, since 1992 bud, that long enough?,more than odd occasion😂😂 only been Kiev and Donetsk, similar to us in that’s the only 2, Ukrainian tv and football chiefs care about, similarities are there, how long since a Scottish team has won the league already?, other than the bigot brothers?.

Portugal bar boavista once it’s been the top 3 that’s won it since 1947, could go on and on olympiakos of Greece, Dina no Zagreb in Croatia etc etc, plenty of historical bias within leagues elsewhere
