Does Alan Stubbs have any Livi connections?

No, that's down to David Martindale who apparently pulls the strings and has done for years.  Taken over the team and the club is in "no rush" to make an appointment?  Take from that what you will.

I’m hearing Livy won’t be allowed to play in Europe,if they qualify,due to account irregularities.

Thats great news,get it right up them,but the big question is..............why were sevco allowed to play in Europe with no accounts?

They weren't. There was a 3 year embargo on them entering European competitions, those 3 years coincided with them being a lower league club and not qualifying anyway.

Aye.

 

Sevco, being a new club,  needed to be around long enough to qualify.

 

Same reason that sevco had to play in all the early rounds of the Scottish Cup.

 

however, when Rangers ( RIP) played in its final Euro games and failed so miserably that its death was hastened due to lack of “honest”  income - it shouldn’t even have been allowed to play at all, as the Scottish Fitba Authorities were already aware that it had severe financial irregularities... but it didn’t disclose that knowledge to the Euro authorities.

 

luckily, in this case, cheats never won.  :)

So they deliberately shut down their youth setup so they could plough that money into the 1st team to potentially win a Euro spot against teams who have not done that.

And now they're pleading poverty?

No sympathy for cheaters.

They have the finances of a Championship club. If they can't afford to compete at this level fairly then they deserve to be relegated. Hopefully next season.
