What's everyone's thoughts on this proposal, the spl invite the Irish teams to join our lowest tier and work their way up. Obviously shamrock rovers etc wouldn't be massive boosts to our league system initially but there could be potential for them to grow into clubs the size of hibs or hearts and then the TV and sponsorship deals would be much larger and our clubs may be better able to compete with other leagues for better players thus raising the standard of football.

Having Griffiths tie Celtic scarves on goalposts all over Ireland would have the troops back on the streets over there again 🤯

We have teams in the championship that are bigger clubs than Shamrock Rovers,  who are their biggest. Can't see much point other than having away trips where we can glorify the IRA through song without worry of arrest.

I don’t think they’d add a great deal and the baggage that comes with them.

Fuck that!

It wouldn't be Northern Irish teams. It would be teams from the ROI, only problems I see with fans is rangers going over there giving it rule Britannia etc.

It's the potential of the clubs over there that I think would be good to tap into, bohemians and cork city etc could become much larger clubs if they were playing in a better league with big matches against Aberdeen and hibs etc. The local Irish population could start following there own clubs instead of epl ones or the old firm and it would mean we get bigger teams in our top flight and would generate a bigger TV deal and sponsorship.

What baggage, would there be alot of trouble between Aberdeen or Dundee if they played bohemians. Only trouble I see is rangers playing against the Irish teams.

Was going to add a disclaimer saying not necessarily through any fault of their own.

Unnecessary baggage nonetheless.

Stay off the drugs OP. Go see a doctor too.

That's a harsh thing to say, perhaps you have never known anyone with mental health problems otherwise you wouldn't say something like that. All it was is a suggestion about the league structure in Scotland, you have then gone and sadly turned it into a mental health issue. Obviously you don't like the idea and wish to belittle me by suggesting I have mental health issues. Learn and grow my friend as mental health issues are real problems that affect many Scots and discussing the Scottish league structure has little to do with mental health.

OP is a moron alert

So you don't like the idea. The adult world is one where you give an opinion based on experience, if you just want to call me a moron then perhaps this is not a place for you. It's a message board, opinions contrary to your own will occasionally happen.

i've read some shite on here over the years and this is up there

Only shite on here is your lack of ability to give a balanced and reasonable argument as to why a irish/Scottish league can't happen. Learn til discuss a topic and you will be able to join in with the grown ups. If you don't like the idea give a reason like a adult or otherwise just stay out.

Haha. 

Terrible idea as well

No thanks to this. The Challenge Cup has been somewhat ruined in my opinion by including Welsh and Irish teams in it. I wouldn't like to see Scottish football further diluted by bringing teams from elsewhere into our league system.

Ignore him. He's one of the biggest fuds on here, hence why he's posting abuse to you on a message board in the early hours of Sunday morning instead of socialising with friends.

Just take a look at the challenge cup. It’s been a disaster from start to finish

Let Ireland be Ireland and Scotland be Scotland eh. We have enough teams who think they’re from elsewhere and want to desert us without us just replacing the fuckers

The pyramid place is in place for a reason, if and when the New Firm and sky decide to upsticks and leave then they should be replaced by SCOTTISH clubs to compete in the SCOTTISH leagues

Restructuring to benefit Irish fitba wouldn't be high up on my priority list.  We have potentially bigger clubs in our own lower leagues.

Was in the Lord Nelson yesterday on a subcrawl. I got the impression the clientele would welcome a shared league with part of Ireland anyway...
