Is this weekend the last match we get to go to this season?

From one transmittable problem to another. And one perhaps for the old wise men of P&B - kingjoey & Jacksgrandpa et al.

What happened regarding matches at Pittodrie during the typhoid outbreak? Schools were all closed for the duration (so it was in season) and er... other things too probably. But what about the football? Did it continue as if all was well?

10 in a row is a formality, just a matter of when.

The ramifications of this will have a huge impact on smaller clubs.

Hopefully none of them go to the wall.

I'm with Bennet on this and spreading out the prize money would be the thing to do if it helps the 11 other clubs.

Club(s) with the most recent history of success in Europe. 
The last 40 years seems a reasonable cut-off point. Anything before that to be disregarded.
‚ÄĚSuccess‚ÄĚ to be defined as actually winning any of the UEFA competitions.
if insufficient clubs meet the criteria , then remaining slots available for Scottish clubs to be decided by ballot. 
Club(s) who have at any time previously been banned from UEFA competitions or been ordered to play behind closed doors due to their fans being animals are to be ineligible for said ballot.
 
 
 
 
 
This seems reasonable.

I would go for the last 60 years as a cut off and only those that made the last 4 of the big European cup, not the diddy one.

Celtic would have went into win the league debating this is nonsensical. Hearts however would feel very hard done by I agree despite the fact they have been shite and probably deserve it.
However I would be happy to compromise. If Celtic were to not have the title awarded to them due to the season being incomplete then it would only be fair that The Rangers were made to stop laying claim to the 54 titles won before they existed.
Fairs fair and alll that
 
 
F*ck up

The Celtic and Liverpool scenarios are totally different, no matter what Lennon says. Liverpool are 25 points ahead of the only team that can overtake them, Manchester City.  If Manchester City were to win their one game in hand, and also beat Liverpool in the one match left to play against each other, Liverpool will still be 19 points ahead with 8 matches left. Celtic are 13 points ahead of Rangers. If Rangers were to win their one game in hand and also win both remaining matches against Celtic, the gap would only be 4 points with 6 other games to play. Even allowing for Celtic's vastly superior goal difference, a 5 point gap to make up in 6 games is hardly out of the question. Lennon trying to make out that Celtic are as uncatchable as Liverpool is fantasy. 

And Klopp's statement really showed the difference in their priorities despite the fact that this would have been Liverpool's first title in 30 years. I for one admire his take on this.

Finish the season when possible.
Void next league season and just have a 44 team knockout competition played home and away ties.
Final 4 qualify for Europe

Surely the safest way to cut down on intermingling and possible contagion would be 22 league of two, with teams playing each other 44 times.

The only viable option is to restart the season when it is safe to do so. Play to the 33 games, scrap the post-split games and play-offs, complete the Scottish cup and fire Alex Rae towards the moon.

You either play the 38 games or null and void the season. Nothing else is acceptable. You cant change the rules after the season has started. I would restart the season once safe to do so. If this means changing or shortening next season then do that.

The ideal scenario is that the games were not cancelled. But they are so anything else is not the ideal scenario.

But best second choice is clearly to finish the season.  Pity we don't play on with Hearts on the ropes, and the **** must be thinking the same about the ****. The problem comes when we have to move into the new season. Hearts could have bought a whole new team by then,, so the SPFL have to ensure that only currently registered player can play in the rest of "this season,"

There are circumstance were we wont be able to finish the league. In that case, it a choice between awarding the league and voiding the league. 

Voiding the league has some president, and could be very funny. Imagine the arguments about 10 in a row, and if that means Celtic run resets at zero. Dundee United not being promoted also very funny. But instinctively this feels wrong. Celtic and Dundee United are effectively being denied what is obviously what they deserve. 

Play offs make no sense to me. This means a complete change in the rules that were there when we started the league. And if we can play playoff, why not finish the league. 

That means awarding teams  Champions. Again Sevco will go mental so... Good. But it needs to be on some kind of fair decision. At the moment, some teams have games in hand. We could either deduct the last game's points (ouch) for teams that played too many games, or award the teams three points each for unplayed games, or their average points per game.  Or rewind the league to the point were everyone has played each other twice.  

In any off these  Award scenarios nothing changes Celtic win, Hearts go down. Controversial, although the hearts going down could be sorted by league reconstruction.

It did show the difference of the priorities of Liverpool, via Klopp, and Celtic, via Lennon. Liverpool’s stance is the epitome of class, looking st the wider picture, with the priorities of the club way back in the pecking order. Celtic’s stance is utterly classless, with no focus on the wider picture only what’s in it for them. It really was a disgraceful statement by Lennon in the circumstances.

Is it Liverpool's stance? Or is it just Klopp's?

Karen Brady has come out and said it should be voided. Many clubs will have selfish points to make when it comes to talking about what should be done, but not many will come out and say the same. And someone like Klopp saying what he said is fine, because ultimately it's not his decision and can give his opinion all he wants.

Obviously the ideal scenario is that the remaining matches are played, but no one knows how long this ‚Äúbreak‚ÄĚ is going to last, no one. You would hope that UEFA will come up with an outcome that is a coverall for every country‚Äôs league to take the decision making away from each individual association, and take that pressure off them. This pressure is particularly intense here in Scotland with ‚Äúthem‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúthem‚ÄĚ to satisfy. As for changing the rules, as someone else pointed out earlier in the thread, there is legislation in the existing rules to cover ending the season as things stand.
