    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    Saw this posted, HOW TO SAVE THE SCOTTISH PREMIER LEAGUE SEASON Britain has two aircraft carriers with no planes for them, because we're idiots. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Elizabeth-class_aircraft_carrier The flight deck is 284 x 73m, they each have a crew compliment of 679. And they're not doing anything. 284x73m, twice, is comfortably four football pitches. 20 Premier League teams, squads of 25, that's 500. Let's say each team gets an allowance of another 25 staff. 1,000, with 358 left over. Plenty of room for camera crew, technical sorts. Two week testing and quarantine period, we move the Scottish Premier League off-shore, I collect my OBE for services to British sports. It'll be called the PremierSHIP. Done.

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    am I missing something, I don’t really think there was anything wrong with the club using the word disappointed at all. obviously, peoples lives and safeguarding people is a priority but you can still be disappointed surely?? i was disappointed the Hibs game was cancelled. I was looking forward to the game, had a family day out planned, drinks on the train through etc etc. Do I understand the rationale for it though? Of course I do. I wouldn’t be surprised to see further statements of disappointment from the club either due to revenue loss etc surely people are entitled to express a feeling.

    Would be a good time for us who don't already to buy saints lotto either at local outlet or via direct debit. The more cash in the better to get us through this.

    Has anyone really said this or is Cagey playing devils advocate, again, to get a conversation going?

    Season Tickets

    Definitely don’t want a rebate. Would actually be prepared to pay an extra “ticket” in the meantime to keep the club ticking over.

    Season Tickets

    I, 100% do not want any cash back from my season ticket. Happy to pay normal for the forthcoming season, no matter what plays out for 19-20 season.

    I don’t see any way that European football can proceed next season, when you factor in early qualifying rounds start in early July. Throw in the fixture backlog and it’s a non starter I reckon

    Agree cash is only one measure but cash is what is needed just now. I'm sure all business's will be delaying paying their debts to retain cash as long as possible.

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    Not sure the country can self isolate, work from home and do nothing till August. Country is just delaying the Covid-19 so there is less overlap with the seasonal flu so NHS have more beds available during the summer months, delaying it till Autumn would be crazy. Can't shut down for months on end waiting on a vaccine.

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    The point could be made that getting so worked up about how the club phrased a statement when the situation is so serious is a bit over-the-top. You could also take issue with what Klopp said, which would suggest he might be disappointed that the games have been cancelled. "Of course, we don’t want to play in front of an empty stadium and we don’t want games or competitions suspended".

    Absolutely no way large gatherings will resume by May. August is more realistic.

    Imagine if the season was to be declared null or void. Hearts could stay up and Dundee United would spend yet another year in the championship!

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    Is this time to reshape our game. Call this current time off as the close season. When ready to resume, May?? have 4 weeks training (pre-season) then complete the fixtures, or start a new season... If we complete 19-20 season we have a period of say 2 weeks to sort out the next season fixtures and play summer football. In that 2 week break you could have 2 or 3 rounds of league cup, lucky dip draw, no seeding and everyone in the hat. Play right through summer. Time to change! Trial summer league. Can implement a step change approach so come 2022 we are committed to summer football.

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    As you know, that is what armature football is for - you can't run a professional league without fans. Come now, football is a very minor matter when it comes to lives being lost. There was absolutely no need for anyone at the club to say they were disappointed unless they were completely unaware of how this virus progresses. Look at the statement from Klopp - "football is the most important of the least important things". Being disappointed that people are trying to safeguard others feels short sighted to me.
