SPL set for structure talks

Scottish Premier League clubs will meet on Monday for talks over the reconstruction of the divisions but there is no guarantee that a vote will be held to decide on the mooted 12-12-18 structure.

The 12 top-flight clubs unanimously backed the plan in principle before the SPL came to an agreement with the Scottish Football League earlier this month.

But clubs, including Dundee United and Motherwell, who were not involved in the latest talks, have asked to be provided with more information before they make a decision.

Last week, the SPL warned that a consensus was needed as the uncertainty was making it difficult to find a new league sponsor to replace Clydesdale Bank.

"If we don't get agreement then we have to stick with the status quo and that is what people appear to want least of all," SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster Daily Record. "Everyone appears to agree we need change to refresh the game, so we face stark choices on Monday.

"Either we go forward with 12-12-18 or we stick with what we've got."

The deal agreed in principle with the SFL would see the top two divisions split into three after 22 games and also include a fairer distribution of income, a merger of the two league bodies and moves towards a pyramid system.

Scottish Football League clubs will meet to discuss the proposals on Thursday.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
