How many weeks now since the league campaign came to an end?
How many weeks now since the last bit of hope was snatched from Sevconia?
A few, and yet you know what? Some of their fans still cling to hope. Some of them just won’t let it go.
I find them pitiful. Their forums are so filled with stupidity that you wonder how the more intelligent amongst them can bear to visit. I cannot imagine being part of a fan-base which is so pig ignorant and prone to delusion.
This time yesterday they were cock-a-hoop at the news from France, expecting that it would unleash the lawsuits.
They really do believe that their club is preparing a major offensive in the background, in total ignorance of the truth that their club voted to end the season and have us appointed champions. They wait for something that is never going to happen.
I suppose it’s better than trying to get excited over the Romanian dud and the Leicester reserve, whilst they wait in terror for the coming cuts.
Every single time a league game is played in another country they howl at the moon about how the campaign here was finished early.
One of the sites which makes most noise is Rangers News, who have been bitching about the campaign’s “premature” end for weeks; today they published an article criticising the Scottish Government for not ending it sooner … yes, you read that correctly.
They attacked Holyrood for letting the Leverkusen game go ahead.
These Peepul cannot make up their minds.
The Scottish Government is the reason the league campaign has been brought to a close; they understand that, and that it had nothing to do with the SPFL, but at times it suits them to blame Doncaster and MacLennan and at others it suits them to attack the government itself.
They need to get their story straight, but that might mean confronting reality.
It might mean accepting that the leagues which have restarted at those who the TV companies are pressing. It might mean accepting that England’s lower leagues are finished. That the SPFL did the right thing. That clubs here needed the money. That next season has to begin on time.
The reasons why the SPFL took the right decision are legion; we have avoided a fixture pile up, financial consequences and we’ve protected the health of the public, the players, the officials, the coaches and even the fans. It was the right call.
Sevco fans refuse to accept it, because doing so means accepting that our title win is legitimate.
They know that it is, but getting them to admit it will be impossible.
As Scottish football goes through the current crisis it is important to keep up with developments and the key issues. We are determined to do so, and to keep you informed as well. Please subscribe to the blog.
