COVID-19 In Scottish Football 2020/2021

Recommended Posts

Presumably we'll now see league fixtures played on Scottish Cup weekend, since those games have been pushed back?
 Been our luck this season that our League Cup Semi with Hibs ends up postponed, and we have to wedge in 3 games a week for a month which completely fucks our tiny squad.
I was literally away to post this. Move a round of league fixtures scheduled for mid/late Feb onto SC Rd 3 weekend and vice versa. Knowing the Spfl they'll just leave it blank then moan they can't fit fixtures in.

Celtic have made all-time c***s of themselves over this, in terms of the action itself and the defence/statement... but they won’t be punished as long as they can get a team on the park.

St Mirren/Killie: breaches + positive cases + games postponed = punishment.

Celtic: (mind-boggling, piss-taking) breaches + positive cases + no games postponed = no punishment.

It follows that the SPFL are only concerned about getting the games played (and care not a f**k that it’s easier for some clubs to do that than others). The SG should hammer them for that... but they probably won’t. Doncaster’s response to the L1/L2 suspension very much suggests that it’s understood as a warning shot...

It's a sad but revealing commentary on Scottish football when the people charged with running the game are hand-wringing and vacillating over Celtic's arrogance, and it's left to the club's own supporters to provide what honest and integrity there is in this fiasco.

Henry McLeish just demolished the SPFL and SFA on Radio Scotland.

Applauding my radio.

Scottish football governance really is third rate, third world, utterly corrupt, atrociously run, tin pot diddy stuff.  

The SPFL in particular needs cleansed with fire.

Fear for how the lower league teams will pay wages with no games. 

More readily than with them I'd imagine.

It's been a shambles from the start. The very start.
The SPFL have taken no responsibility for anything. I highly doubt they've inspected any of the stadiums or training grounds. They'll have given the club's checklists and left it there.
They only care about games being played. f**k all regard for anybody.

Really?
Absolutely nobody else who's watched the shitshow of the last year would have noticed.
The only difference is different clubs are affected.

Presume he's flown a scheduled Emirates flight back to the UK, which probably doesn't tie in with elite sport exemption requirements?

If he’s left the bubble I can’t see how he can possibly be exempt from the ten days thing.

It isn’t really a bubble if you can leave it, take a long haul flight, f**k about outside the bubble for a few days then rejoin it within a week with only a negative test or two and no isolation required.

Is this actually the case? I can't imagine elite individual sportspeople (eg athletes) having to fly back on their own private plane to avoid quarantining.
