So using that comparison there was basically a gun held to your head in the form of if you don't take a pay cut you will lose your job as the company will close but that wasn't the case with Dundee players you say?

Sorry, where was the gun held to my head?

You said if you didn't take the pay cut and work for free the company would close and you would lose your job otherwise why would you have taken the pay cut? You had a choice take the wage cut and keep your job or say no and lose it.  You said the Dundee players didn't have guns put to their heads so what was the reason given to them for taking a pay cut and what were they told would be the consequences of them not taking a pay cut? As I said your not telling me that the players were asked to choose between taking a pay cut or continuing to keep the wage they had with no reason for it other than to prevent the owners investing more cash. The players must have been informed about what would happen.if they failed to agree .

With Wales going into lockdown after Christmas and talk of it in England, I wonder if we will see it again in Scotland.   If we do it will be for the common good, but on a selfish note, I just bought a virtual half season ticket, darn.

Doubt it will effect pro football. I presume Cardiff and Swansea will still be playing fixtures.  

I see tomorrow's game has now been moved to Sunday with a 12 ko.

Figures being banded about that championship clubs are getting half a million quid each whilst league one are only getting 150k each.  Farcical if true. For a start running a full time club costs far more than a part time and yet likes of alloa and arbroath will be getting more than us Partick and Airdrie.

Government money was meant to make up for the shortfall in income due to Covid. How have teams like Alloa and Arbroath lost 350k more than we have? They have part-time player contracts and smaller crowds. An absolute carve up to stop championship clubs going bust and f**k the rest of us

Cheers - what a fucking shambles.

You wlll like this, all clubs had to give a detailed breakdown of all matchday income/expenditure from previous couple of season and operating costs, this was to show how much each club was losing due to the loss of fans.  You also had to give SFA a breakdown of previous accounts.   We thought this would mean that clubs from each division would be looekd at on an individual basis but alas no everyone has received the ame amount irrespective of annual turnover.  So in essence if you have costs of say one million per season you're being treated the same as a club with costs of £200000.  Just marvellous.

I get that they have to draw the line somewhere but it doesn't seem right that full time clubs like Falkirk and Thistle with full time staff are getting less than a third of what Arbroath or Alloa are getting. 

Albion Rovers 100k

Falkirk 150k

Alloa 500k

Is giving a £500k grant to clubs with credit histories like Dundee and Dunfermline not the equivalent of giving heroin to a recovering drug addict ??

Only in Scottish football eh !!
