What's everyone's thoughts on new lockdown
Will football be stopped or worse can they abandon it
As someone already said would put clubs to the wall so can't see that happening but in this world and times never can tell.

Stig, chill changes do not affect professional sport.

04 Jan 2021 21:04:48
Seen the SFA are going to talk to government tomorrow about it all 😩.

04 Jan 2021 21:11:06
Even if they do scrap the league and we ge hee haw, a whole generation of previously entitled Timmies now know who the daddy is, actually winning the league is almost irrelevant, the rage and disappointment is reward enough 🤣.

04 Jan 2021 21:11:46
The stig why, government approved it.

04 Jan 2021 21:12:16
No, but it will affect the Tic on their return, am I correct in thinking they will have to quarantine for 14 days, if so it'll be interesting to see what the SPFL do.

I think that’s more to do with Celtics spring break to Dubai. I believe the Scottish government are furious that the travel exception which is in place so teams can compete in Europe has been abused by Celtic.

04 Jan 2021 21:15:01
Fingers crossed it doesn’t come to that. Maybe they’ll stop all games for 2 weeks?

04 Jan 2021 21:39:51
They won’t need to isolate for 2 weeks because Dubai is not on the list and it’s not hard to find this out.
The Scottish government haven’t got a leg to stand on as they sanctioned it along with the spfl.

04 Jan 2021 21:43:02
Apologies never read the article properly the meeting tomorrow is about Grassroots football.

04 Jan 2021 21:50:35
Guys u all seem confused this was sanctioned by spfl sfa and Scotland response group an absolute nothing story.
Nicola just pontificating as they f up again.

04 Jan 2021 22:16:20
Yrs but with all the restrictions C.V. etc etc you would have thought the smell. tic board would have used what brains they have if any and postponed there sunshine break just becoz it - 19 here lol.

04 Jan 2021 22:23:25
Argyl I really hope your joking mate.

04 Jan 2021 22:50:06
My opinion is that they should never have been allowed to move a fixture to go but When Celtic left for Dubai they were not breaking any rules, this was sanctioned by the SFA and Authorities. It looks worse because they’ve brought out new guidelines whilst they are away but that’s not their fault tbh.

I would also add that should they return this weekend and have a lot of positive cases then they should be
made to field a weakened team or if they cannot fulfil the fixture, forfeit the game. They know the risks when they go to Dubai IMO. It’s quite a stupid thing to risk from them given the C.V. but the authorities have given them the thumbs up for it which I found quite unbelievable.

{Ed001's Note - Dubai has one of the lowest transmission rates in the world and the lowest death rate, according to reports. So what risk going to Dubai? It is much safer than Scotland.}

Leeanne Dempster not happy that their game against Hibs was moved. I was under the impression Hibs had agreed to it? If bot they have been ordered to play on the Monday to accommodate the tims. That can't be right, can it?

04 Jan 2021 23:41:16
Seeker I read somewhere, and I might not get this perfect so don’t shoot me down, that the home team have the right to request to the moving of a fixture. I don’t know the exact requirements but they were obviously fulfilled at the time of the request.

05 Jan 2021 07:25:25
Hibs were clearly unhappy about it but the usual protocols were followed and there is a precedent already set which justified the decision to change the time of the game.

As for their trip to Dubai. Technically it’s allowed and was pre approved by the govt. and SFA but what a brilliant PR disaster it has been. Just been pumped by their bitter rivals, their holy grail of 10 realistically gone, their supporters not allowed out of their homes due to C.V., season ticket money blown on a trip to Dubai and then pictures appear of Lennon pinting it with Brown in the sun within 24 hours of the defeat. Their supporters are going absolutely mental -and rightly so.

05 Jan 2021 07:51:17
Think they have more to be concerned about by the reaction from their own fans after losing at ibrox then lying on a deckchair having a cool beer.

05 Jan 2021 08:03:10
Does no one else think that no British team should be traveling abroad at this time. Its not even for a game its just to train which they can do indoors if its too cold for them. There isn't a winter shutdown this year so they get a game moved to accommodate them for what gain and to who? I realise that no rules have been broken and this is not a dig at them for the sake of it but it just doesn't sit right that with the whole country in lockdown and everybody playing their part they can travel abroad to TRAIN, my job requires ongoing training and we don't even get sent into Glasgow any more let alone half way round the world. That said, the pints than lemmon and broon had looked delicious so maybe I'm just jealous.

05 Jan 2021 11:04:58
That lot get game moved to go to dubai but we get he haw when we asked for the same when we got to europa league final, seems fair.

05 Jan 2021 11:56:21
Good point me2, it would be interesting if anyone in the know of the exact rules could explain the sfa/ spl thinking or reasons for allowing 1 and not the other? Thinking back did they not want all competitions finished before the Scottish cup final or something like that? I’m not sure does anyone know the different reasons?

05 Jan 2021 12:29:04
Ingerr the rule did not exist in 2008 we were instrumental in getting it changed due to how we were treated.

05 Jan 2021 13:26:19
Thanks John. Do u know, it was u I was expecting would perhaps know the answer to that. Anything serious, Johns yer man lol cheers mate 👍.

05 Jan 2021 14:11:29
