Coronavirus: SPFL warns clubs no money to cover closed door games

Perhaps, but then what's the financial outlook for the teams forced to play to the end of a season with no income?

So everyone, say, over 60 who has followed MFC all their lives doesn't count just so you can see your game regardless of them? Fuck off you selfish cunt.

The game being on won't make a difference to vunerable people catching it.

All I'm saying is that if we stick with the current logic there won't be football next season either. Yet eventually 70-80% will still have had it.

Usually no fan of the steel boy, but that’s helluva harsh.....it’s ok saying extend the season if there’s an opportunity but that’s going to have a knock on effect. Plus no vulnerable person would put their health at risk for a football match

If they decide to just cancel that also results in no money coming in plus the league and cup placing a will be left in limbo. Not sure what best option is or how it will pan out

It's surely not simply about vulnerable folk avoiding a football match. Non vulnerable folk can pick up the virus and act as carriers when  later visiting those in the vulnerable range. Parents as an example.

That's going to happen anyway in workplaces, shops, public transport etc. 

Football matches won't make any difference.

Looking forward to tomorrow’s game in hospitality, probably the last this season.

The Chief Medical Officer says we are likely 10-12 weeks away from the peak. Hopefully the club can handle the loss of income.

Gatherings of more than 500 people should be cancelled from next week, the Scottish government is advising.

Just read on the Beeb website.

 

I notice the ban is in effect from Monday, maybe too much controversy for wee Nicola to ban the ugly sisters game on Sunday, just saying like.

I may be a CV-vulnerable wrinkly who's had pneumonia twice and been hospitalised as a result but at least this crisis has spared us the cringeworthy "Curtis Main will come back to haunt us" froth we normally have to endure in such a fixture.

Since Friday night will probs be our last match for a while, I will proudly take my position on top of the POD and rain sarcasm on Cosgrove and the other Mutton Molesters from a safe distance.

Tobar na Mathair gu brath, ya bass!

The mortality rate in South Korea is 0.7% and they are doing the most testing so will be the most accurate. 

 

With the health of people in this country I'm not so sure it'll be as low as the South Koreans. Not to mention it'll only increase once all the hospital beds are full and they have to choose who to treat.

Anyway, I'd be delighted with a draw tomorrow. Would be huge as it keeps us third and nobody has any idea what's going to happen with the league once players/coaches start getting infected.

Will the orange nets be in play tomorrow night? I think we should be informed!

Spot on Allan. Introducing the ban as from tonight was never a possibility for this very reason. Still, anyone missing their football fix can always travel south now to take in English games instead.

Or maybe not now it's confirmed Arteta contracted the virus and all EPL games are under review.

This like any other UK sporting event, really shouldn’t be going ahead imo. The Govt policy of ‘herd immunity’ while social distancing has proven to stem the tide in other countries, concerns me greatly.

No the right thread for this but current death count in Italy will predominately relate to those who caught it well before shutdown. The ‘evidence’ around social distancing is further afield.

Covid-19 has put serious doubts on whether this league season will finish on time, if at all. Games across Europe are being postponed as I type.

The talk is that with Euro 2020 being suspended they might try and finish those tournaments in June. 

Finishing leagues looks extremely unlikely so we can expect a full Celtic meltdown and Accies survive again. Dundee United will be screwed as well which is nice.

SFA and SPFL Joint Response Group currently in urgent discussions re this weeks fixtures. From the Daily Mail Scottish correspondent. And EPL EFL suspended
