 Utd ,Rovers & Rangers

Dundee United, Raith Rovers, and Cove Rangers have paid £50,000 in legal fees to defend against the Hearts Thistle court action.
They now recon to defend the action at the court of arbitration it will cost a further £100,000 and are asking the other Scottish clubs to help fund it .
They have set up a crowd funding page and are asking fans of other club to help out ,as if compensation is awarded this will affect all the other clubs .

Personally I think that it is disgusting that they have to pay anything. Dundee Utd should have that type of money, however Raith and Cove unless they have rich fans might struggle. The reason is because a woman called Budge could not accept that her team should be relegated because they finished bottom of their league, unfortunately Partick got caught up in her web. I only hope that justice will prevail. I would also like to think that they are expelled from the league and have to reapply to join the league.

The Raith board will be glad to have £150,000 in the bank for that young lad who was transferred to Fulham at the beginning of the month....

Wouldn’t contribute hee haw.
The hypocrisy of Raith was embarrassing. Harped on for weeks about reconstruction, almost daily the chairman was in the paper then they got handed the league then decided reconstruction wasn’t for them anymore.

Said it before - all that will happen is that solicitors will have a slightly heavier wallet at the end of this.

Seriously you couldn’t make that up. All 3 clubs happy to relegate teams and vote based on their own self interest. Now they want others to bail them out. Surely the spfl should be supporting them as it was their decision.
Clubs are already losing money due to decisions already taken, with BT being refunded a significant amount, sky being refunded over 5 years and Ladbrokes also looking for money, strange the spfl didn’t advise clubs of this before that main vote.
Makes sense if they all are being compensated hearts partick and Stranraer should be too at least.

Dundee United were happy to pump in some derisory 100k offers for Nisbet.



They can get ******. They don't even need to defend it, they didn't need to go to the original court case.

Dundee United can f**king whistle for it, clearly not short of money. Cove and Raith I have some sympathy for.

I dont understand why these clubs have to pay anything to court fees, it was the spfl that made the decision to end the season early and promote these clubs,

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

if hearts/partick lose, should they not pay the costs to the 3 clubs?

I think it's the case that Dundee Utd etc are counter suing rather than fighting the case

Is it not because they had petitioned the court to deny the Hearts/Thistle case as no case to answer which the judge denied and therefor they lost and are now due to pay their own costs

Lord Clark essentially said that the litigation should never have come before the Court of Session, and should have been resolved by arbitration.

As it was Hearts and PT that raised the action they should be held liable for the costs as the "losing" side.

The Belgian Court Of Arbitration have overturned the relegation decision one day after their Jupiter League fixtures were announced.

Just read that all clubs are being asked to help the trio. Premier £5000 each Championship £2000 and leagues 1 and 2 £1000. Its dreadfull that Budge has cost clubs this.
