  1. For the schools to open without restrictions, infections need to be at pretty much zero. Devi Sridhar (SG advisor) says at that point we can return to "normal" life like New Zealand have, as long as we keep a tight grip on infections coming in from overseas and track and trace does it's job. You'd like to think if we're going ahead in October after hopefully two months of the infections being at ~zero then I'd be hopeful of returning to the football without any overbearing social distancing. New Zealand had full crowds at the rugby within a week of them lifting lockdown. I know they've had a wee burst of infections since then but they're showing the way to deal with this.
    I agree completely that worst case scenario we should be looking at playing games with no away fans and restricted home fans. Barring any monumental f**k up from government in hammering the virus down, of course. 
    Do our finances work with only home fans? Don't we need PATG and away fans?

  2. I'm confused by this.
    The question is Best/Worst Stadium and folk are talking about boozers and great away days, surely these are irrelevant.
    Best - from an away fan's perspective I think Starks Park
    Worst - Stranraer as I've never been to New Bayview.  
    Starks Park is the worst for me...we always seem to be shoved into the weird corner section on those weird bench things...and you can hardly see the game from there...why on earth don't they open the railway stand...much better view

  3. They still say they do.
    Apparently it was a secret enquiry that the clubs weren’t aware of - and where the firm conducting it didn’t actually interview SPFL board members or individual clubs. Strange.
    What it did confirm is that a no vote was allowed to be changed. Not surprising given essentially it appears to have been an email trail check that’s been done.
    Meanwhile Holland null and void the league, something we were told was absolutely impossible (as impossible as being able to grant loans to the member SPFL clubs it would seem).
    I think the reason the Netherlands voided their top league was that the top 2... Ajax and Feyernoord were on the same points.... totally different to our top league... perhaps more similar to our league 1

  4. I spent 1 minute looking for somewhere that does custom kits and another 5 minutes making this. They produce the kits with everything included for less then £30 inc VAT.
    Why can't we do something similar to this?
    That's really smart...way better than the 4 options we've been given

  5. Delighted with the three points

    I thought Clyde's number 2 looked really nervous throughout the first half and wasn't surprised to see him hooked at half time

    Funnily enough though, we got more space up front in the second half as a result of the substitution, and I thought we just edged the result

    Clyde were pretty poor with the final ball generally woeful...I'm not sure Brennan had a save to make

  6. I don't know why but it must have been decided early(ish) on in the game that Jai was the only sub getting game time yesterday.
    PJ's face was absolutely tripping him as he "warmed up" with about 20 minutes left.
    I would love to know why because that's the strongest our bench has looked all season and we actually had options for a nice change.
    I would guess Duffy knows the players better than us. Who's carrying wee knocks... who's loaded with the flu

    Crossan's face is always like this to be fair... even when he scores

  7. Probably was a penalty...I always tend to look at the player who potentially committed the foul...Quitongo's reaction tells me there was contact

    That said, Cosgrove had been chucking himself to the ground the whole game looking for fouls

    Really enjoyed the day out at Aberdeen, and a big well done to the stewards...what a great bunch...loads of banter, and exactly the right way to approach supporters...with a smile

  8. Seems like Stranraer had the better of that game and should have won.We seriously need to  strengthen .On another day we would have lost that  but we cant be down to 2 subs on the bench.Squad numbers need to be at 19/20
    Didn't think Stranraer did enough to win the game...but we probably didn't either

    McLuskie made a difference when he came on...brought a bit of energy at the right time

    McKee looked gubbed by about 80 mins

    Really poor situation to be in only having one available sub...I am assuming the club / Duffy will be doing something about that before the next game

  9. It's not easy to tell on the Goal Cam - and I have no clue how the assistant could be sure enough to give it, but I think it looks just over. Think Forfar had a GoPro behind the goal that it was scored into too so that might help clear things up.
    That certainly looks over to me

    Either a great decision by the linesman, though it also looked like the ref gave it straight away, or just a fluke they got the right decision

  10. 4th goal shouldn't have counted, according to the highlights it doesn't cross the line. Ref had no clue, linesman was awful so they just decided to give Dumbarton the 3 points. I know our defending was bad but I think a draw would've been fair. Let's hope that referee decision doesn't prove to be a costly mistake come the end of the season!

    Looked to me like it had crossed the line..i take it there is only one goal cam and it was up the other end? Might have cleared it up


    Delighted with the 3 points though


  11. Strange game...we started badly and seemed to take a while to adapt to the new formation. Unfortunately by the time we did, we were 2 down. After that though I thought we controlled the rest of the first half and must have been disappointed to hear the half time whistle

    Second half? We didn't turn up and East Fife deserved the 3 points

    Poor performances from Carswell and McCluskey

    Baffling substitutions from Duffy taking Sheils off and moving Carswell to RB...we looked so unbalanced

  12. Layne was far too isolated in the first half and as a result he was getting nowhere near passes or clearances, so Peterhead were able to control the game

    Getting one back just before half time was critical as it allowed us to regroup but with hope for the second half

    Once we got scullion, McKee and crossan closer to Layne we were much improved and probably could have scored at least one more

    Great set up at Peterhead and made to feel welcome

    The win definitely made the journey worthwhile
