Stephen Thompson (left) and Stewart Gilmour: Attended meeting at Hampden

All of Scotland's top clubs were present at the Hampden meeting to discuss the proposed three leagues of 12-12-18, which would split into 8-8-8-18 after 22 games.

It will take an 11-1 vote to pass the motion, which will also have to be approved by the Scottish Football League, which has yet to set a date for its vote.

Dundee United chairman and SPL board member Stephen Thompson, said: "Everything is positive and moving forward. There is a process in place and we will take it from there."

Asked if he thought reconstruction would be in place for the start of next season, he added: "That's the plan."

St Mirren chairman Stewart Gilmour was more cautious - he said: "We had a good discussion. There was good dialogue and difference of opinion but a long way to go.

"I don't know what will happen. The SFL clubs are still to meet and until they come back. There is a lot of tidying up to be done."

Ross County chairman Roy MacGregor admitted he was concerned with the practicalities of the split.

He said: "There is a lot of debate to go on yet and we will see how that goes. My concerns are for the fans.

"The fan is the most important person, not the clubs, not anything else and I do believe that considering what the fans are getting is really important."

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...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

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.

Wenger hails important win

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.
