SPL 2010/2011 fixtures

SORRY FOLKS. THIS BLOG POST HAS BEEN UPDATED TO TELL YOU ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ON THE STRICT INSTRUCTION OF NET RESULT ON BEHALF OF DATA CO LIMITED ON BEHALF OF THE SPL.

TO EVEN SHOW THE FIRST WEEK OF FIXTURES WITH LINKS TO THE FULL FIXTURE LIST ON THE SPL SITE WOULD COST ME OVER £4000. THIS IS MODERN FOOTBALL:

Is the World Cup too far away to properly dullen the senses with its succession of awful football matches?

Fear not, the SPL is on its way back.

The fixture list was announced this morning.

Yet again ignoring my advice about allowing teams to play home and away on alternate weekends. I'm beginning to get a complex.

We kick off on 14 August. (I assume I am I allowed to mention this date but I'm awaiting confirmation)
