  1. Most of Pollok's players are on two year deals and I'd imagine they prepared these contracts with this eventuality in mind. I'd expect to see a fair few season long loan deals but it will be interesting to see how it all pans out. Loan deals seem silly if player safety and welfare is so important to the clubs, what are for example Rossvale doing differently that Pollok aren’t when it comes to player safety and welfare? Surely if you are so concerned for your players safety you wouldn’t be loaning them to another club in the same league with the same conditions as you would had you played
  2. its not knowledge, its just a personal hope. But yeah its all about fans getting back in. Nothing about the badge on the jersey or the players wearing it or being a part of something!
  3. its not just about fans not getting into games by the way. Some fans enjoy following their team even if they cant get into the ground. Some clubs will provide live stream coverage and they'll still be able to follow their team whether thats online or in the local newspaper. Fans will get back in eventually maybe not in 2020 but you would hope that by 2021 we'll be able to have some back in.
  4. Darren Christie signs on loan for BSC from Pollok.
  5. For a player to stay under contract at a club I would presume clubs would have to continue paying the player. Clubs shouldn’t be entertaining loan deals, that only helps the team sitting out. There’s probably guys who are sitting out who will still play for free at another club I would reckon
  6. Shankland has been pretty vocal over the last week!
  7. Ah but player safety, aslong you aren’t in the first team you’re good to play. will be embarrassing when the players who have been running their mouth on social messi end playing elsewhere this season
  8. If it’s all about player welfare can’t see how playing friendlies would be the right thing to do 🤷🏻‍♂️
  9. There’s nothing to say Talbot would definitely get to play in the Scottish this year anyway. The SFA were talking only letting an handful of lowland league teams play and give the rest of the lowland teams some sort of compensation equivalent to playing the first round
  10. got to love all these experts virologists commentating on a lower league football forum!
  11. It’s not about what’s legal. it’s what’s right to do by football. I don’t think you are getting that. Whether someone is legally allowed to stand about watching a game is neither here nor there. Folk coming down to watch a game when they’ve specifically told not is just more evidence football fans can’t do what they are told. Anyway, you’re probably an anti-masker and think 5g caused all this.
  12. Only because he’s on the forum talking his own actions, I’ve said publicly it’s not acceptable too. There will be others who will try and chance their luck and see a game no doubt about that. I just can’t understand why folk even if it is their legal right to do what they are doing think It’s ok to go against everything they are being asked to do? if clubs aren’t following protocols by having fans watch games from the other side of a wall or a car park and then football gets stopped because there’s an outbreak after 20 lads turned up and stood together watching Benburb from a grassy banking outside the ground. Who’s fault will it be? I don’t understand why folk think it’s ok because they have a legal right to stand in a certain area that it’s then ok to gather and watch a match? Surely we all want what’s best for our grade of football and if that means we don’t go and sneak a watch at our local game we don’t do that!
  13. Aye no doubt, will be class when they all turn up and get football stopped! Then everyone will blame the government
  14. No spectators at games, anyone trying to watch it whether they paid in or watched from a car park is attempting to be a spectator. we all want football back with fans for the reasons many have already stated and if you get people constantly trying to watch games from a vantage point outside the ground it’s only going to risk getting things back to normal. What if 40 other folk had a similar view and all turned up to the same game and the team had a gathering of fans trying to watch the game. Not going to help, the whole mentality of thinking it’s ok to go and try and sneak a watch when everyone else is doing their bit and staying at home is the one that will spoil it for everyone. But I guess that’s what society is like in all walks of life and people are just out for themselves
  15. And there we have it folks there will always be people who think they above the rules and guidelines no matter how much you tell fans to stay away. Utter joke that anyway turns up at a game chancing their luck trying to see a match they aren’t allowed to watch. Every club will have these types of people. Question? Why did you think it was ok to go and try and see a game on Saturday? Most clubs put out statements saying not to attend yet you went against that exact message so you could selfishly see the game?
  16. It’s just an example of football fans not doing what they are supposed. Getting fans back will require everyone to follow strict rules. the other thing common is that the default to look at what other folk are doing. We need to take football in isolation, forget pubs, schools, shops or whatever. We’re football and have to work within our own area to get into a state we’re good to go with and not get distracted by what’s happening in other parts of society.
  17. I don't think its as damning as they don't matter. The guidelines for returning to football are set out by the SFA and the Scottish Government, presumably it will be somewhere down the line providing the virus is kept in check and clubs can prove that they can follow the protocols and fans can act responsibly. Football fans have never been the best at following rules. People standing up in all seater stadiums, not sitting at their allocated seats, swearing, singing songs they shouldn't be singing, being offensive, using smoke bombs, fighting each other in the streets etc etc. Some of that isn't maybe seen as a big deal to football fans but it's just little bits of things where fans aren't seen to behave in the way they should vs something like Rugby, Ice Hockey, Cricket, Speedway etc. With the tighter restrictions on some local areas there probably isn't a massive appetite to bring the fans back. We know it can work, we've got the space and small numbers to handle, these friendlies are our acid test, we have to follow the rules to the letter with no exceptions in order to give us a fighting chance to move through the steps before getting fans back.
  18. Why would you sell a season ticket for a season you didn’t know how many games there would be? Likewise why would you budget wages without knowing the facts
  19. nice one have pinged you a message! Cheers
  20. Anyone see Nade play for Annan last year?
  21. Poor lad jut wanted some chicken delivered, ends up getting papped by a fan in the street. What's the world come to 😆

  23. is this what it's actually called? Surely someone could come up with a marketable name than something that sounds like a government benefit scheme
