  1. Cases already on the way down. Hospital admissions and deaths will remain high for 28 days or do after the cases peak but I think the number of cases are the important figures in terms of lockdown restrictions. Hopefully football will be back by March.
  2. Ok my mistake I haven't seen that information. The cases have decreased for the last 2 days (more than previous weekends) so I presumed we were levelled out. I thought cases would start to level off around 14 days after Christmas. I think deaths and hospital admissions will peak a fortnight or a month after cases have peaked. I'm not sure deaths and hospital admissions are as relevant as cases though. A rise in deaths is because of a rise in cases a few weeks earlier.
  3. Why would they not? The season continued through the peak of the virus, fingers crossed by February 6 UK cases will be half of what they are now. The restart may well be pushed back a few weeks but there will still be enough time to finish the season.
  4. Suspended until February 6th. Hopefully by then we have the virus back under control but it seems doubtful atm. The Lothian league can always switch to a single round Robin format and just play everyone once instead of twice like the Tayside league is doing if they have to.
  5. Is it Lothian League juniors who are leaving for the EOS league next season or can you not say?
  6. I suppose if the clubs have senior ambitions then options 1 and 2 are viable but I didn't think that was the case given the likes of Lochee United and Broughty didn't move to the East of Scotland leagues in the first place. It would be harsh on Luncarty if they can be accepted at tier 6.
  7. Speaking out of turn here, but if the Lothian junior clubs do join the East of Scotland league is it not possible that what remains of the East juniors will merge with the North juniors. They could keep it regionalised but have the league winners playoff to determine the overall champion.
  8. Ok thanks. Hopefully all clubs go public with their intentions. I know Musselburgh and Dunbar have been vocal about applying this year but hopefully St Andrews and Edinburgh United are ready this year because they've been working towards it for a while now.
  9. When is the licencing committee meeting? Is it February again or has it been affected by Covid?
  10. Yeah that would make sense. Hopefully Basel don't qualify anyway because it would guarantee one of the four teams from the Champions Path in the group stage would have a lower coefficient than Celtic meaning we don't have to rely on Leicester qualifying to get into that pot 3.
  11. Well that's made me look stupid. I've been checking the Swiss League every weekend to make sure Basel don't win the league but it won't actually matter haha. If Ajax (and all other top ranked champions for that qualification round) are bumped up to the next round that will create an odd number of teams in the first qualifying round. Or will that just result in a bye for one of the first qualifying round teams?
  12. Celtic will be seeded for all rounds of qualifying unless Basel win the Swiss League, in which case we would be unseeded for the playoffs and would face Ajax, RB Salzburg Olympiacos or Basel in the final qualification round. Thankfully Basel sit 3rd behind Young Boys and St Gallen for now. If Celtic do get to the group stages they will probably be in pot 4 unless Leicester and Lokomotiv Moscow qualify for the Champions League. And we'd also need to hope Inter and Atalanta get knocked when the unfinished UEFA competitions resume. And to make it more confusing, we have to hope that either the Champions League or Europa League winner is not a domestic champion (although this is more than likely).
  13. We won't have to play Sarajevo in the first round sorry, it will be the Armenian champions instead. Unless Kükesi can make an unlikely comeback and win the Albanian Sarajevo will be seeded like us. Now that Alashkert can't win the league, any of the 3 potential Armenian champions will be unseeded.
  14. Less than 2 months until the Champions League first qualifying round kicks off. All qualifying rounds are to be played over one leg this year until the playoffs. Celtic's potential first round opponents are: North Macedonia - Sileks (Abd-2nd) Armenia - Ararat Armenia (1st) * Luxembourg - Fola Esch (Abd-1st) Georgia - Dinamo Tbilisi (1st) Sweden - Djurgårdens IF (1st) Montenegro - Buducnost Podgorica (1st)* Estonia - Flora (1st) Belarus - Dynamo Brest (1st) Latvia - Riga (1st) Wales - Connah's Quay Nomads (Abd-1st) Faroe Islands - KÍ Klaksvík (1st) Gibraltar - Europa (Abd-1st) Finland - KuPS (1st) Iceland - KR (1st) Albania - KF Tirana (1st)* Malta - Floriana (Abd-1st) Prelim round winner (Linfield) Obviously we'd be hoping to avoid Djurgårdens and Dinamo Brest.
