By that time though, I wouldnt expect social distancing and the lockdown to be still going in it's current state. I am talking August here, but equally theres no way there will be crowds at football then.

You are just soooooo negative.

What a wimp!!!

I'd pay to watch too, no problem. It wouldn't work though because it would encourage folk to congregate together and the arseholes would see it as a chance of a piss up with their mates.

Yep ! I would put my money in to watch web coverage of a game as would a good % of the support. But how could the safety of the players , background staff , stadium employees be secured. Two groups of people coming in close contact expelling body fluids during the game its a disaster just waiting to happen. All it would take was one player to be infected and it being missed in the checks. 

 

Nice idea but not going to happen.

I wonder what will happen with season tickets?? 

Hopefully the club manage to come up with some sort of package that each ticket gets access to live games online home and away. Maybe offer a small refund per game that's played behind closed doors until we can get back to games.

Are you really Ann Budge in disguise?.....

Pondering exactly how one would go about disguising Ann Budge? Maybe a giant mascot costume, or some sort of sexy Halloween costume?

Would it be terribly cruel if I suggested that she could a good model for a Halloween costume but I’m not too sure about the ‘sexy’bit? ....

It’s a wide, wide world with lots of people who like different things...but the Bride of Chucky comes to mind...

So given that it’s looking increasingly unlikely that there will be games with supporters in stadia this side of Xmas, the possibility arises that the club may need support from the fan base later this year.

Given the shenanigans of the last few years and the past year in particular, it’d be easy to say GTF, but if it’s our clubs survival that is at stake I think we may need to look beyond and get involved.

I’m of the view that the club could ask for a part payment of season tickets, say 50%, to tide it over for a while.

What’s everyone else’s thoughts on the matter?

Are we all understandably disillusioned or are we willing to think past our concerns?

Cue the abuse.....

Season ticket to include access to an upgraded FTV, and obviously then games whenever/if they become available.

Need the rules on games being shown live changed to allow us to watch closed doors games but wasn't this ruled out the other day by scot gov as they reckon showing behind closed doors games would encourage people to watch games in groups. I'd buy ffc tv to watch live games until we're allowed back into the stadium.

The club could also offer season ticket holders the chance to bring non season ticket buying family members along to games for, say £5 once we are able to attend, should that be part way into the season?

We should be paying the full whack and encouraging the forces of darkness to lift house arrest.

You are just so negative.

Too much sitting around doing nothing.

Ehm, I’m fully occupied with successful work at the moment.
I think I was actually suggesting contributing?
Looks like the stick you are getting is getting to you.
What are you doing whilst your businesses are in lockdown?...

Let me think about that.

 

The extremely wealthy multi-millionaire owners of the club who have treated the fans with complete contempt for years, (removing Saltires from laddies, calling fans racist, appointing incompetent arseholes, driving investors away from the club), now want us to put our hands in our pockets to help them out?

 

ummm

The words I would use is downright incompetent and uncommunicative although hopefully Gary Deans can bridge that gap in time.
Whilst I get all of the concerns, I’d rather have them than some corrupt charlatan that we see at too many clubs nowadays, and one of which was allegedly about to take to the helm at Falkirk.
If those owners decide not to invest further in soft loans we are in a tricky situation.
I get that we are all extremely pissed off with the events of recent, but my primary concern is the survival of our club, irrespective of our owners.

There is a real threat to the game with this virus. I’m not against outing my hand in my pocket to help the club but only once the current board do the same or acknowledge their time is up ! Their call
