Good move for him but like any winger he is hot and cold . IMO the premiership is a move to far for him but only time will tell .wish him good luck

Probably underlines the problem of extending this season.  Contractual situation would be a nightmare.

It's not really any different to Ross Docherty who has continued to play for you successfully hasn't he?

Although the point at which these guys will be due a wage rise may change which will complicate it (for both of them)

Closed door matches won’t be possible for our level.

Open door matches will not be possible until August/September time.

What about my holiday to the states in September? Should I be shitting myself?

I'm assuming mine for June is gubbed, though it isn't officially yet. September might be ok, too early to tell.

Good luck to Forrest, been here for some time. Nearly 250 games is an impressive total, still remember his debut at Hampden.

He's been at the club through some very good and very bad times. I'm sure he'll do well at Livi.

He also confirmed that Dundee and Partick were in for him.

Very different.  If we extend the season, Docherty will complete it as a Partick player.

Not necessarily. FIFA have discussed moving the transfer window date which would prevent that. Either way, Docherty will be no different to Forrest.

Partick, I can understand voting against it, but Dundee and ICT are cutting their noses to spite their faces here.  There isn't really anyway this season is going to be completed, without significantly bollocking the next one.  Neither Dundee nor ICT are in the position whereby they will win the league and while they are involved in the play-offs (like ourselves) it has massive financial implications to drag this season into June/July for the sake of a gamble on promotion.  

It's hard to know where to go from here...while Celtic, Dundee Utd and Cove are miles ahead in their leagues and will, in all probability, win them comfortably they have not technically won anything yet, and no team has been relegated definitely either.  So, the only remaining option is just play the games when we can and delay the start of the next season (all sorts of contractual, legal and financial permutations there) or call the league as it is now in terms of prize money but just knock promotion and relegation on the head.  

While I have no great love for the SRU and they way they conduct their business, perhaps the SPFL need to follow their lead (if they didn't already) and give the clubs several options to vote on. 

As many have said before, this is actually an ideal time to discuss reconstruction into leagues of 16 but none of the current Premiership clubs nor their business partners at Sky  would entertain that idea as they would lose their precious Old Firm games.  Across the board, self-interest is going to royal cock everything up.

Ayr have 1300 season ticket holders , would we need to provide match free to them  as technically they have paid to watch that game ,

Could offer it "free", some might be willing to pay.

I assume that the club have had no inquiries about a refund on season tickets so far? Fans understand the situation and I think the majority would pay money if they get something out of it.

If this season does restart at some point are we not going to have Alan Forrest i take it? 

Strange time for Livingston to announce with all that was going on today with the vote, also get the feeling we were caught off guard as there has been no announcement at our end

BBC still reporting that one club hasn’t voted.  

Sky also saying 1 team ( believe it’s ICT) seemingly there is a deadline date which is been quoted as 28 days ( not sure if this though ) and their vote will decide outcome

My understanding is that players will leave at season end ( seemingly transfer Windows will be extended to date season ends )
