OK, you can argue whether 'Shire and Stenny are in the 'west' but this will always be a problem once you opt for regionalisation. I'll miss out your other points, and come back to them, but this has not proved to be a problem with the East Superleague. The bottom three drop out: if it's 3 fife team...

There would be no more junior sides capable of a league existence and all the dross would have gone. Is 42 teams too many? If we had just 32 "senior" teams would that make a difference? What useful purpose do East Stirling serve? Albion Rovers? They might move between the 2nd and 3rd divisions...wh...

Support levels in the two new towns with league teams (Livingston Do you think Livingston would attract more fans playing against Bo'ness, Lintlithgow and Bathgate in a pyramid structure? Livi v Ross County, and Livi v Inverness might be realistic for SPL football; but for the 4th league in Scotlan...

I read about this book on the hibeesbounce.com forum, thoroughly recommended by a contributor who had emailed the author about the 875 v Stirling Albion attendance.

I ordered my copy today online, so I look forward to receiving it.

Magic forum this.

A pyramid would surely make sense, but it would need to be realistic:

I'd venture just two national leagues of 16 teams, and everything regionalised under that. The first Regional level could be North/East/South/West, and then East could be split into Lothians / Fife / Borders / Tayside.

I would genuinely review my backing of my local club if such a sell-out were to occur. It's funny you say that, there was a recent article in wsc about a belgian club that acts as a feeder club for an academy in the Ivory Coast: IIRC they had 10 or 11 players at a time playing from IC. Bottom line?...

Spookily enough, Hibs won the Scottish Cup in 1902 at Darkheid against Celtic. How many times have teams played on their own grounds at Scottish/League Cup Finals? Have they lost every time? Furthermore. Hibs put out Rangers & Celtic out of the league Cup in 85 & 2003/04, and then lost the final to ...
