Coronavirus and the Scottish Championship

There's no point of reference to compare at our level yet. We will see how commitment levels are and the tempo of games when they are playing repeatedly in front of nobody.

Surely there is enough initial data from the Premiership games played to see if players performances are in line with previous years results? While numerous measurables are inconsistent enough to require a larger sample size, certainly distance traveled, passing accuracy, possession data, and such could be mined to see how they compare to similar periods over the past few years.

If there are impacts, they will likely vary by player and may result in some interesting things for clubs to consider for the signings for next year, as less skilled individuals who could remain committed might look like world beaters versus top players with a lack of interest in the game without crowds.

How?
Most of those attending Cineworld right now will already be paid up ticket holders (Cineworld Unlimited subscribers) looking to get value out of their subscription.
Operation not viable with few PAYG customers and only selling a few extras like snacks to a percentage of the subscribers.
Lot of parallels there.
The most ridiculous comparison I'll read in a while.

Nope, it's a ccommitment for the year whether you pay monthly or up front.


A quick google shows that they stopped taking payments from April 17th till they reopened. Whether people in high risk groups could suspend payments longer I’ll leave for someone else to look up

So there are people who've been paying...whatever it is now, think it was a tenner a month last time when I was signed up...all through the lockdown despite the fact that the company's unable to provide the service? Wow.

I should have probably quoted this one as well as @Jamie_M

Why.
Jamie, Cineworld announced it was closing due to the Bond film being delayed until the spring. I'm actually really impressed you've managed to make that correlation with why some fans can't go on the terracing at Gayfield to watch Arbroath vs Morton in the scottish championship.

Cine world is also closing due to no new movies being produced to generate a crowd.

Not suggesting this is definitive, but it’s a real puzzler:

Albert Hall, London; indoor venue; capacity 5272; authorised capacity from December - 3000 [57%]

Cappielow Park, Greenock; outdoor venue; capacity 11589; authorised capacity for the foreseeable - zero [0%]

Discuss.

Are you suggesting that all these European countries run by morons? Especially those nations with similar rates to ourselves? emoji848.png

 

Err no, I don't think he is. He's not looking as far afield as that.

Schedule a ballet and an opera at Cappielow, ask the SG how many can attend and report back (Although, scheduling a performance of Das Götterdämmerung at East End Park might be more appropriate).

Scottish Opera are planning on putting on an outdoor production of La Bohème. Currently slated to be staged at their HQ in Cowcaddens you could try tempting them to Greenock

I’d suspect that Firhill or Tynecastle would be better placed to bid for it but if you don’t ask you don’t get.

We specialise mainly in comedy, with the occasional tragedy thrown in...

Both of you should be utterly ashamed that you know something about opera, btw...
