I believe Derek McInnes calls stem from the notion that Scottish football clubs could possibly perform better in UEFA Competition if Summer football was brought in.
A summer football season March to late November drastically needs to be brought in as it would help as regards player readiness for UEFA events. Moreover, it would also assist with improved attendances, more supporter participation in all sorts of events around match-day.
The idea could be piloted in League One, League Two, Lowland League and Highland. Surely there would be huge benefits in terms of football benefits and financial to these clubs. I know I would as a supporter have a second or third club at lower levels if I had chance to follow them say in June on a Friday night.
At SPFL level I just do not see summer football being brought in at all. Too much concerns from game rulers that it would have a detrimental impact on TV finances and would impact the finances of the game negatively. From a traditional perspective Saturday football at 3pm is great but surely Saturday football at 3pm on a summer day in June would appeal.
It would seem Sweden, Norway, Iceland - we are losing touch with these nations in terms of player development. Iceland are ahead of Scotland now.
Surely we have to use these countries as benchmarks?
