I was looking forward to the game after watching them easily beating Hibs on Sunday, but they were totally outplayed tonight, no surprise really when you consider the money Dynamo have to spend on players, 15 million on one player alone.

More an indication of how much Scottish football has to change, Surely if a rule was brought in that 75% of a team fielded had to be home grown talent that would not be breaking any rule?

I know it would mainly apply to teams in the SPL but they are the ones importing foreign players anyway

Hearts and Motherwell found out their next opponents in the Europa Cup with Hearts coming up against Liverpool, should be a really good tie for all Jamtarts supporterters.

Motherwell have been drawn against Spanish team Levante.

Good luck to both Scottish sides.

According to a BBC Scotland story Dundee Utd have reported a net profit of 1.449 million pounds. Their chairman says the SPL is thriving and the absence of Rangers has not had huge effect on Dundee Utd.

I don't think his idea of thriving and mine are the same thing Dave, although he is correct about his club not missing The Rangers as unlike when the old firm visit they had a full house when Dundee came calling.

This net profit was reported for the financial year which ended prior to this season commencing so the Rangers factor still counted.
As for this season, Thompson himself admitted that only United got lucky when Dundee came up and that the other teams have not fared as well. Hardly a sign that the SPL is thriving. It is most definitely not.

Further to Dundee United's supposed wealthy status, they are now selling match balls on ebay...

I take it the bid for 100,100 was from a Dees fan. laugh.gif

Ahead of Wednesday's meeting of the SFL and it's member clubs to discuss league reconstruction in Scotland, BBC Scotland gave a sneak preview of some of the proposals this evening.

Under the present proposals, the league would become three divisions, the top division being increased to 16 teams, the second would have 10 teams and the third would have 18 teams, including Rangers and Celtic reserve teams.

For the SPL's part, they can only vote through reconstruction with a 11-1 majority at present and it is believed they are unlikely to consent at this point. The fact is though that a significant proportion of the SPL clubs are in very severe financial difficulty and they may not have too strong a bargaining position.

At any rate, the proposals are as much a first step to opening negotiations but whatever decision is arrived at, it needs to be arrived at soon. Be prepared for a lot of tough horse-trading.

Whatever happens, it is likely to signal the death knell of the SPL, which would fulfill Charles Grreen's prophesy that Rangers would never play in it again.

Sounds like a start in the right direction but doesnt go far enough, should be a rule enforcing the number of home grown (British) players to be at least 8 on the field.

A new financial reality will ensure that happens, whether the clubs want it or not.
