    Which is probably true in all honesty.

    I’m complaining about football not being able to be played behind closed doors, yet complaining about the government not shutting down enough.

    Just miss football :55: it’s like the international break but I don’t feel embarrassed to be Scottish.

    • Club competitions:

    • A commitment to complete all domestic and European club competitions by the end of the current sporting season, i.e. 30 June 2020 at the latest, should the situation improve and resuming playing be appropriate and prudent enough.
    • Possible limitations or drops of current exclusive calendar slots, potentially resulting in the scheduling of domestic league matches in mid-week and scheduling of UEFA club competitions matches on weekends.
    • Possible adaptations of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League qualifying rounds in case of late completion of the 2019/20 sporting season, i.e. after 30 June 2020.

    Honestly think they should just wait and complete the season. the worlds * so just wait on it healing. I know players are fickle and may leave their clubs etc but it's the only way I can see things working.

    It would be win-win for us... Huns can get 12 points max to that point. We are 13 ahead.. don’t need to kick a ball under that scenario and still champions.

    People getting all worked up have forgotten that finishing the season suits us best. We all want to finish it 100% and bag another treble..

    As you say, we'll be fine but our opposition will be skint, player's long gone or some club's lucky to still be there by the time we get going again and win it in style..

    Aye, a lot will be due to lose out of contract players in May and June then a lot will probably need to sell players likely the huns as well if they do not get investors to cover their losses.

    We go on as normal with all our players.

    Aye it's zero problem to us in that respect..

    We'll just sit it out if that's the plan then great. Be good to do it our way anyway without no bollocks of tainted titles or being gifted it..

    The mutants 100% don't want to sit it out as they know that the null and void (I've never seen it as an option personally anyway) has slipped away and any chance of us being ripped of 9 in a row is gone....that and being massively in debt also..

    Lovely..

    They are not winning the league no matter what happens. But the Dons and Motherwell deserve a chance to sort out their positions. And hearts then have a chance to get off the bottom.

    It is not ideal by any means but if it reduces the amount of games and lets us finish the league in some form then i would like to see it considered. For all those in the SPFL saying there are more important things than football at the moment they seem to be putting all their efforts into the Null & Void push. If they honestly believed that football (and cash) were not the priority then they would simply agree to end the league now with league decided after 30 games.

    Due to the ever changing nature of virus like Sars there will be more in the future so our officials need to modify the rule book to ensure we have definite clear rules for any similar situation. Uefa need to look at this also. Virus epidemics / pandemics will 100% happen in the future and what better time than now to make / ammend the rule books.

    We will lose players like Elyanoussi and Gordon in May plus Forster in June. Could be left with 1 senior keeper. While Bain would probably be good enough to keep us over I'd rather he wasn't our 1st choice. Southampton could use it as an excuse to fleece us for more. We will probably use this to fleece any Scottish clubs with small fees
