I agree. It's easy to look at it now and criticise but Edinburgh City have just gone up which could not have happened without the pyramid, so there's one club that wanted in who now have it.

To what purpose though? Is there room for a third Edinburgh club in the SPFL - history suggests no. Does the SPFL need a club which will struggle to attract a three-figure crowd? I doubt it.

I've just returned from watching Hurlford United v Auchinleck Talbot played in front of around 1,100 fans. Why would either club want to give this up for the chance to play Albion Rovers, Annan or Arbroath?

What's wrong with wanting to continue playing local rivals rather than travel up and down the country to play in front of a couple of hundred fans?
