McGlynn’s Barmy Army vs Red Lichties (17.10.20)

Recommended Posts

 

A great opening game for both sides, as Arbroath travel to Fife to take on League One champions Raith Rovers.

Our last trip to Starks Park was more than enjoyable, let’s hope for more of the same.

I'm sure I heard somewhere that if social distancing is in place we would be looking at 1500-2000 capacity. Not a chance we'd be seeing away fans if that was the case.

Best guess, with two seats/rows spacing, is about 17% capacity with pairs of fans...call it 1,500. With less requirements we could see closer to 35%.

I cant remember where I heard it, think it was possibly in one of the chairman's interviews. I'm also sure that he said that was based on 1m distancing, but could be wrong. 

I'd be pleasantly surprised if we are going to any away games this season.

Add in to the bargain that some Arbroath supporter’s behaviour has been less than exemplary at Stark’s in recent years. Yeah, very unlikely we’ll be allowing any in I’d fancy.

Aye you’re right, Bill Clarke said it. The figure of 1500-2000, was based on the 1m social distancing rather than 2m.

But also, I doubt there’ll be any fans, home or away, allowed in to stadiums this side of Xmas.

Surely households will be able to sit together without distancing which would mean fewer closed seats and a higher capacity.

I still struggle to understand the logic of playing behind closed doors when pubs are open, enclosed spaces with minimal social distancing especially as the night goes on.

Unfortunately can’t see any Lichties being at this one, which is obviously very disappointing. Have Raith spoke at all about streaming there games?

Perhaps. The problem becomes a real life version of Tetris. 1m spacing is roughly two open seats between groups/individuals, and then there are walkways and access to consider. If a group of 6 want to sit together, they would “occupy” somewhere between 20 and 22 seats, which is about 27-30% capacity, excluding considerations for rows that don’t divide evenly, stairs, etc. If an individual wants a seat, they occupy 9 seats, or 11% capacity, 2 people occupy 12 seats (17%), 3 people occupy 15 seats (20%), etc.

The best guess is 15-20% capacity, with 30-35% being more likely if they allow just one seat between individuals/groups.

RaithTV would be expected to be available overseas, and I would expect audio is likely to be available within the U.K. The details of streaming video within the U.K. is an SFA/SPFL decision.

Hopefully get through tomorrow unscathed and have a fully fit squad for the visit to Starks on Saturday

Will be a good indicator on where we currently are.  Hopefully we can leave Tyncecastle without any more injuries and without a bad defeat.

Don't really know what to expect from us to be honest - Arbroath are no mugs and its a good test for us.
