I just read that the SPFL will share a pay-out of £28.4M from a turnover of £36.8M with the first tranche being £3.6M from las seasons central income.

A few things.
1) Does anyone know if all 42 clubs get an equal amount?
2) Is the rest given out monthly from now on?
3) Where exactly has all their money come from?
4) How much do the SPFL keep back for themselves?
5) Could the clubs cut out the middle man and somehow and strangle the SPFL at source?

Asking for a friend.

I can’t see the money being divided equally between the 4 Leagues by the SPFL.
The way the SPFL share the prize money between the Leagues is shameful.
The Premiership receive a massive 83.25% of the overall prize money.
The Championship receives 11.05%
League One 3.45% and League Two a shocking 2.25%.
I think Airdrie tried to become a full time club last season and I would guess Falkirk are still a full time club but what chance do they have, with that amount of prize money for the bottom 2 leagues and possibly the bottom 3 leagues.

Let’s do the opposite to what the Brexiteer league does and share the wealth equitably. The SPFL would be the winner in the long run. To those to whom much is given much is expected’. (Luke 12:48)

Exactly JFP.
Celtic and other clubs should do what Sir Robert Kelly did in 1964 and protect the smaller Scottish clubs.
The majority of our Scottish Clubs have over 100 years of Unbroken History and everything should be done to help them.
Sevco Scotland have already stated they will make all the other Scottish clubs pay because they blame them for the death of Rangers FC.
That process is already in play by hindering the new Cinch Sponsorship deal.
They still can’t get away from the fact that their Old Club were caught Cheating and they only had themselves to blame.

Buzz - those stats are shocking.

Not taking care of the lower leagues is something that diminishes the potential to develop stars of the future. It may be that the top league generates most of the revenue (a slice of cup gates etc) and so expects a larger share.

If smaller teams go to the wall then IMHO that just impoverishes our games status.

I agree the distribution percentages are not balanced.
However, the clubs at the top do have higher running costs which has to be taken into consideration.

6.) 21 Oct 2021 08:06:18
That's true but the top league also have charge higher gate prices and charge more for season books and also merchandise, plus the winner of the sfpl gets about 2 million that's not a massive amount for celtic so it could be easily shared amongst the smaller leagues.

Woefully unimpressed with that on several levels. 3 away loses - my missus always said I had better never play away or else, I think she has done Celtic's team talks too! .
Was the keeper the only guy that showed any HeART? Rogic was also trying at least.
Looking on the bright side - we are definitely showing we are a top six side at the moment.
Expect things to improve as we were not out played today - just out muscled.

Onwards troops, onwards.

I can't decide if it was Rangers or us that got outa jail today. probably us.

1.) 19 Sep 2021 18:47:51
It's a bit of pressure on us now Stubsies. Thankfully the Rangers result softens the blow. Some of the signs have been encouraging but truth be told it was always going to be a development in progress. Still early days and I wouldn't rule us out.

Just watched the Moldova game and I seriously think Celtic missed a golden opportunity.

We should have played Christie in defence last season as he has a marvellous knack of finding row Z.

Onwards and upwards guy.

1.) 06 Sep 2021 10:05:19
If we had played him in defence it could've scuppered his dream move to Bournemouth🤭.

2.) 06 Sep 2021 13:19:44
'When I was a kid my dad would buy me the new Bournemouth kit every Christmas. I've dreamt of playing for them for such a long time' 🤦🏽‍♂️.

3.) 06 Sep 2021 13:42:25
Even now in Australia it really annoys me the amount of Bournemouth fan clubs.



27 Aug 2021 11:22:22
The draw is on - it's the closest I can get to it feeling like Christmas! Anyone else feel like that or am I the only kid on here?!

No matter who comes out I'm just going to enjoy the occasions - every last one of them.

It's great for all those other teams to have the privilege of visiting Paradise at least once in their life.

The future's bright, you know it's green and white.

1.) 27 Aug 2021 11:56:24
Same here just enjoy whoever we get.



26 Aug 2021 21:43:53
Well that was entertaining!

Great result for us getting into the group stages.

Any idea who we might get in the draw? Whoever it is it will probably be the "group of death" as usual.

Sometimes I think our defenders need to be given a plan/ blue print of the stadium they are playing in - just so they know where row Z is!

Well played boys.

1.) 26 Aug 2021 21:49:13
Welsh was excellent again and starfelt did 0k 2nd half.

2.) 26 Aug 2021 22:51:23
Celtic are currently the top seeds in Pot 2.
Our Glasgow rivals and Leicester City are also in Pot 2.
In Pot 1 Celtic could get Roma or Spurs.
We could get West Ham or Sparta Prague who are in Pot 3.
In Pot 4 Celtic could get old foes Rapid Vienna or Legia Warsaw.
Also in Pot 4 we could get Fernevaros or Midtjylland.

3.) 26 Aug 2021 22:55:52
Sorry Stubbsie,
Celtic can get Lazio or Napoli in Pot 1 tomorrow.
Spurs and Roma are in Pot 1 in the Conference League. 🤦‍♂️.

4.) 27 Aug 2021 00:03:43
Lyon, West Ham and Sparta would be a minging draw.

Monaco, Ludogorets and Brondby would be a kinder draw and something different to who we've played.

We always get the group of death and guaranteed to draw West Ham.

5.) 27 Aug 2021 11:12:47
Thanks Buzz.

6.) 27 Aug 2021 11:13:55
Welsh was excellent?
Looked like Gary Caldwell at the first goal.
Caught ball watching a few times in second half.
He's young and inexperienced but I'm sure he'll get better with game time.

Don't put a stop to this - I still have a 1/ 3 of my popcorn bucket left and my 3D glasses have never had such a run out in a long time!

The boy Starfelt has, in my opinion, got some confidence/ settling in issues but he has not been horrendous. We could go through our whole team and find find fault with all of our players if we want to. Starfelt is no diddy and his performances will improve as he gets games under him and learns the system Ange wants better.
Starfelt can be seen in the same initial phases of his Celtic tenure as VVD or Larsson et al so let's all get behind him and give him the chance an international deserves.

The future's bright, it's swathed in green and white.

He is a law to himself and only has his own feckless interests at heart - time to get shot.

If he is a massive Sevconian then he isn't doing his job - - - - he gave us a penalty.

Had a Tommy Hilfiger top with those colours back in the decade that fashion forgot - thank the Lord for no mobile phones back then as if the Russians got a hold of a picture I'd be blackmailed to spy for them!

No matter the colour of the shirt as long as the players bleed green on the night I'll be happy.
