Are France letting in more than 5,000 now? Otherwise, not sure you can call about 10% of the Parc de Princes packed.

Look at it looks a hell of a lot better than the shit show which is our game and 5000 is a lot more than in majority of all Scottish grounds every week lol

Our game's barely started again.

So u say but premiership is what 7 games in now teams have played in Europe and we have had international games and barely moved forward and make no mistake about it the Scottish premier will come long before our levels of the game infact lower leagues are barely ever in the powers that be thoughts if anything they would probably rather not have lower level teams in the structure at all and would be pretty happy if a few disappeared due to this 

and as I said the other day fans could be accommodated easily from league 1 down just now no problem

Guys easily on £8k a season, training twice a week and playing on a Saturday then saying to the wife “see that £8k a make that pays the holidays etc, I’m no taking it off the club this season” I can’t see many of the high earners playing for nothing, and why should they🤷🏻‍♂️

Correct I know everyone loves there club mate whatever level it is but can’t expect the players  to as well especially as there already playing and travelling for nothing to play and train at least 3 times a week until competitive games start at most teams just now and what if anything happens to them I’m sure club won’t pay them if can’t play and what if they end up off there own work due to playing etc some people are so naive I’m sure they all go to work for free 😂😂

I went along to a local game yesterday and watched from outside the ground. About 30 other folk had the same idea as me. Ridiculous that if we’d stood another 6 foot away the club could have charged us to watch, yet they made nothing from the game. Most WoSFL league games can be watched  from outside so you’ll still get fans “attending” yet the clubs won’t get a penny.

Being a pedant, do most clubs charge for friendlies anyway?

We typically do donations at the gate.

A few I’ve been at in the past (including the team I watched on Saturday) have charged, and others have done donations

Proud of yourself?
You're the type that will solve the problem of no fans being allowed in when Queen Nicola stops all games at our level.

And clubs were asking fans not to do that as reports of it could see the return of fans delayed. Good one!

If he takes a season out, his 8k is gone anyway.

Let's be brutally frank games with no fans ain't happening, just need the WOSFL to come out their slumber and make the shout.

They will do what LL, HL, EoS and SoS do in terms of that. Can't see it being anything different. HL have already cut games. WoSL rumoured to be doing likewise in top flight at least.

The SPFL's part-timers will benefit from being under that umbrella. I'd have though trials of fans would happen there before at say Annbank. With covid on the rise again (as predicted - although earlier than thought) the seaon's screwed anyway IMO.

Yip. A lot of boys will just go and play amateur with their mates if they aren't getting paid the cash they want to play at the higher level.

Don't think you can call it a slumber when the main talking point last week was the apparent change in structure to the Premier and Conferences. These friendlies also aren't just about getting players match fit, they're also giving the clubs the opportunity to work out the kinks in how to operate under these new guidelines. Organising a longer distance away match day I imagine is going to be a bit different in a time of social distancing. Its not like everyone drives.

They, like everyone else outside the Premiership, are just trying to get everything ready for the start date in hopes that when the time comes fans are allowed in.

I suppose most teams in the non league are given a 25 mile radius to play teams within that area but then the problems start for teams in areas which are in lockdown.
Right now its about trying to get ready and get by under the constraints in the hope that it will open up, (personally I cant see things opening up if pubs are still allowed to be open). Noticed a few Glasgow teams had to cancel games against teams outwith their area and the same for teams in East dumbartonshire, North lanarkshire etc..  so it will be hard to get it worked but sure everyone is working together to try and come to a solution
