Did you really expect anything more from the Scottish Government ?? The reality is it’s been one f**k-up after another.

They get away with so much in this country. They said they ‘cannot commit to us restarting with the virus levels as they are’. So why on earth if it’s so dangerous are the top two leagues still playing? We were playing when virus levels were much higher than what they are now.

Can only assume we are heading for an 18 game season. No way 27 games will be played now. Surely there can be no issues with that across leagues 1 and 2.

Depends on when we could play on till I presume. I think most of us thought a mid march start was the most likely and I suppose if they decide on 1st to get going again then that wouldn't be too far fetched. As soon as the SFA/spfl decided to sacrifice the lower leagues it was always going to be difficult to start them up again without a marked change in circumstances.  Whole thing is a shambles with Doncaster and  Maxwell the main perpetrators.

Because that was the proposal that the SFA or SPFL put forward to the JRG before they rightly closed down all football....

Genuinely can anyone think of a reason why the part time teams in the championship can continue with testing but in the two leagues below part time teams can't?

This is all down to TV deal money and nothing else.

Absolute shambles but what did the SFA expect? They played right into the government's hands by shutting us down in the first place. Did they honestly think it would be their shout whenever they wanted us back?

Exactly. Once they had shat themselves and given up leagues one and two it was always going to be difficult to get them back up and running.  They can now blame the govt for it but it was their stupid decision in the first place.

I think we are kidding ourselves if we think the league will start up again.  I think that's it - the league will be void, they are just postponing the announcement until next month.

Hang on ! there is the equiv of a supporters bus crash with all killed per day.

FFC are playing in a minor league with part time players. That is the reality and we are where we are because we deserve to be there.

Happy to wait ! knowing there will be people watching football from whatever club they support next season because of it.

To be devil’s advocate,I can.
The one message that the SG do not want to be putting out just now is one that allows people to think they can start to relax things at a time when the numbers are still high.
Blame here is with Celtic and the football authorities in this country that we stopped playing. No one else...

I think the SFA for all its faults had been heavily leant upon to announce the decision to spare the government's blushes.

We had the chance to push for change in these clowns that run our game earlier this year and some clubs stood up to the mark but the majority just pandered to them as usual. Those complaining now if your club didn't back the vote of no confidence in Doncaster and co then it's your own feckin fault your team isn't playing the now.

Leagues will be null and void and no fight from anyone. Look what happened last season to Hearts & PT. SFA|SPFL know they can literally do whatever they fancy.

Who is the SFA Vice President? Yes the owner of the team that sits bottom of the Championship with eight points so far.

An abhorrent fraudulent bent and corrupt organisation, stinking from top to bottom.

Mulraney getting exactly what he wanted. A slight cull of all teams unfortunate enough to be in leagues below his. Meanwhile his team play, get 500k free money, incomes from live streaming games v Hearts, Dunfermline etc. Oh, a wee minor hiccup the last few weeks where all teams banded together and said they'd put in place the exact same procedures that his club have? No problem, Government have come along from nowhere, despite it not being them to shut us down, to say we can't restart. He must be absolutely p1ssing himself. Corrupt to their core.

Alloa will make more money because of Covid than they could have dreamed without. Same for Arbroath, QotS et al.
