McLeish report and SPL proposals – your opinions matter!Print This Post

Supporters Direct are running a poll to gather the opinions of fans around the country on the recommendations of Henry McLeish and the SPL’s working group. By filling out the survey yourself, and encouraging as many others as you know to do the same, you can help make the survey as representative as possible of fan opinion in Scottish football. Please help.

In the last week, the SPL have made their own proposals for the future of football in Scotland, and this was followed today (Thursday 16th) by the second part of Henry McLeish’s report. We will all have our own views about what each has proposed, but one thing that is clear is that neither has consulted widely and directly with Scottish football fans. As William Gaillard (then UEFA Director of Communications) pointed out at a Supporters Direct Conference in 2009, if we only have players then we only have an amateur game. To have a professional game, there must be fans.

So that the fans voice can be clearly heard, Supporters Direct are conducting a survey seeking views on a number of aspects of the McLeish and SPL recommendations. You can find this at:

    Summer football is surely the only way forward for our game.No more frozen pitches,no travel restrictions.No,or very little use of expensive floodlights,temperatures that would encourage fans to attend games.This would mean more revenue for Clubs,helping to enhance playing sqads,and improve stadiums.
