    Presume YaCunt had a change of heart or his club did not heed his advice as I see they are in it.

    The protocols are a pain but I would stick my left bollock in a vice every Saturday if it meant getting a game of football. For those of a playing age the mental side of things much more prevalent than the virus. The risks are minimal on a football pitch especially when we were not allowed changing rooms. Probably a much lower risk than going to the supermarket. At the end of the day, no one is forced to play. Players, committee and management have an option to be involved or not but you have continually pushed for the season to be ended since it was started. Perhaps time to step aside.

    At least with the proposition put forward by the league those that are against playing can sit at home watching dross on tv and let the rest of us get on with playing football rather than trying to have football stopped for all.

    Not every player or team will want to play, that’s why a few teams requested stop, especially self employed folk until vaccinated, so we must think of them too. Listen am in the house isolating cause ma mrs has it, am wanting nothing more than to be oot training and watching boys fall over the ball so am away fi her and the bairn for a bit lol! But we have to still be sensible. A hope your right come June/July were in a much better place. Think we all need a beer and a catch up

    Training by April would be great but still doubtful. In an ideal world you’d like to get back training in small groups for April and May and then really pick up the tempo for June with 4 weeks of friendlies in July leading in to a competitive start for August. If this was this case you’d just need to hope clubs approach the lift of restrictions with maturity and not just flout them left, right and centre like overloading changing rooms, 10 aside at training etc. Also, teams will be approaching the restart with a dead start. No funds, pitches like a tattie field and changing rooms in a mess. A couple of months to address these situations along with a couple of fundraisers will go a long way. May be a cliche lads, but failure to prepare and all that?? If we get the green light, let’s do it right!! Mon the fitbaw!!!

    How many teams have been setting running or individual training for their boys over lockdown. I’ve seen maybe one team. A lot of boys have taken to working Saturdays etc without the football, that’ll need to be rearranged with notice. So will childcare for a lot of guys. The idea that we can just click our fingers and be back playing this weekend or next is daft. Boys will need a good pre season as well, give or take the few weeks we had post summer, we’ve been out of organised sport for a year.

    Summer football will never happen. We’ve had this debate for 15 years now. A cant see us being back training before spring the way it’s going. So we should all prepare for the league restarting August September once were all vaccinated.

    When I say “soon” I am hoping maybe by the summer. That would be ideal and give us something really exciting to look forward too. But again, going by the current situation, pretty doubtful eh? I know the death toll is nowhere near accurate and I am really dubious about the accuracy of people actually having Covid or Covid symptoms. At the end of the day, soon will never be soon enough as we are all missing what our spare time used to revolve around. Personally, I cannot wait till it’s back and I miss the football just a much as anyone but in the meantime I am being a realist and not negative.

    Not as yet. If government guidance allows it will start in May, 9 Saturdays and 9 Tuesdays for the fixtures. 18 games in total possibly. Something positive to look forward to. Pubs back open then to so hopefully sponsors will see some income thru the doors to.

    well aye it would be up to them if they want to play football or not as was the case when this season started. Players knew the risks/ protocols and that coronavirus was on the rise and there would be no changing facilities or showers. Players still wanted to play and teams fulfilled fixtures so I cant see much change in the players minds that they still want to play. The vaccine being rolled out now but the virus is not going away. There will be safety protocols in probably everything we do and everywhere we go from now on regardless of cases. Just hope were in a much better position come June and we can all look forward to dedicating a saturday to play/drink pints and have some sort of social interaction after games.

    Football needs changing rooms and showers available.. every single person will agree on that, before games and after games. Changing rooms are a must once were all vaccinated.

    Not playing a game of football cause you can't get a shower.There's surely no way the same protocols will be in place once everyone is vaccinated.

    If you honestly think it was football that caused any sort of spike, anywhere in the country, then you’re off your head, frankly. Will agree with you that rules should be followed, but government stepping in wasn’t because of football, it was because the nation got hit by a very nasty new variant at a time we were not protected by any vaccine or lockdown. Football played no part in what happened during winter, so dont try claim it did.

    People would rather be safe than sorry you wanted to keep playing in a global pandemic ffs no one wanted football stopped .... people with a brain and respect wanted the right decision on staying safe ... maybe you should pop in to our nhs hospitals and see the work they do to try and save peoples lives rather than being a stupid kant and put up posts of absolute piss

    It is. We are where we are and looks like it’s next season or bust. Look forward to it, missed the smell of muddy pitches, arguing with people then having a laugh after the game, the jokes at training and the changing rooms... Christ even missed taking the goals down. call it added benefits

    Absolutely the finest of examples as to why we should be playing right through the summer! For anyone who would want to vote and end this season to restart in August again is aff their heed! If we start at the end of August as we usually do we will be 2 months down the line, restrictions in place with another lockdown looming and guess what, we will be in the exact same position in Feb 2022 as we are right now! if we are lucky enough to be in a position to be playing by the end of April / May, we must make a collective decision and get this season done one way or another and that way we can prepare for the disruption of more restrictions or another lockdown if it comes in the winter time! And if the senior game is not make similar plans, they will only suffer. Play games in the summer when they can get fans through the gate and earn some much needed cash or play through the winter behind closed doors with no revenue coming in because of travel restrictions, social distancing and a lockdown as the government can’t bail the SPL out for ever. Unfortunately this is going to be the new normal for the foreseeable! If I can see this then surely the men at the top on big money can see this. Time to get the heeds oot the sand and make forward thinking changes!

    We all want the football back ASAP. But there will be no training before April we will need 4/5 weeks to prepare ie training and friendlies. We’ve no chance. Prepare for august and hopefully we can play friendlies June and July.

    Interesting read over the last couple of weeks guys. As a very optimistic person and glass half full kind of guy, even I can’t see us playing anytime soon. Social distancing expected to be in place till at least the autumn and before you know it, we’re doing it full circle and trying to get change outside, play games and then travel covered in gutters in temperatures than viruses cling to like flies around shite! It’s not manageable! As poor as it is, we are all in the same boat and can only wait in hope that the current climate takes a radical change! I sincerely hope so and would love to be involved in a game again this year but who know’s eh! To make matters worse, looks like we won’t be invading the English come June as well in the Euro’s. Sit tight, keep safe, follow the rules and we’ll all be back abusing refs and enjoying a beer with the boys on a Saturday afternoon soon enough!!

    Since most of us here are on lockdown, what are you currently listening to? any quarantine beats you would like to share? drop them down below as for me I've been into a lot of lofi chill songs to go with playing online poker, just the perfect combo, I've also rekindled my love for rock/punk rock music.

    Summer months if we’re playing this mini-competition/friendlies it probably wont be a pressing issue, but I would have to agree that the situation regarding changing rooms has to be resolved for a 21/22 season.

    Grass roots in England back 28th March adults and kids then we won’t be far behind it. Vaccine roll out and cases dropping all the time let’s get the games going in April. Absolutely pointless not doing it and Eveyone playing friendlies all summer as that’s all that’s going to happen. We have been idle long enough. Follow the same protocols untill they are relaxed or lifted in June like Down south.

    Organised sport meaning same protocols being followed as the last time and imo this was how the spread of the virus rose to high amounts as people were car sharing and not wearing masks .... 70 players self isolation in space of 2 weeks too many risks imo as back to soon

    I am grasping every last detail pal. I read, take it in and then reply. I don’t just blab whatever rolls off ma tongue. A lot of what your saying in regards to no playing again soon is very true and I wouldn’t disagree with it. But surely if there has ever been a time for change, then let’s make this catastrophic pandemic have just one positive impact on change. Planning to start a new season in August with the intention of running a normal season will only have identical problems to the problems we are having now!! A normal seasons means playing in November, December, January and February, the months that provide clinical temperatures for this virus to thrive in: This virus is here for keeps and I can tell you now, next winter will be the same as now. So is this not the perfect opportunity to implement summer football? From youth, amateur, juniors and semi pro, what benefits have we ever gained from a summer break? Not one!! If anything it would have a massive impact on our game, more kids would be keen to play, supporters would be happier to bring their friends and family along to support their local team and we would all be playing on better surfaces which would ultimately help us become better players and coaches!! I just can’t believe it’s never happened before now! It would take no effort at all for goalposts to be left up!!! if we end the season now, we would be as well as accepting we will not be involved with football till next spring. Playing football through the winter isn’t going to work and never will from now on. It’s not manageable with all the obstacles it brings! What is it you are not grasping?? Anyway, nae weans, away for beers to sit and fantasise about being back at the footie one day! Have a good weekend or the best weekend you can have!!

    Exactly what I said earlier. Looking at last year as the perfect example, we trained all summer with zero issues, even with contact when allowed and it was perfect. We then waited until bloody October to try start a season, just as winter was looming. Cannot make the same mistake again, use the better weather & safer environment, and get boys back out playing in the summer.

    Kind of sums up the SFA and the SAFA though eh? It’s the most sensible and practical decision to make which would help improve our game but the powers at be can’t see passed their stubborn old ways. Ridiculous really. Best months of the year and we take them off for a rest and try to battle through heavy parks, howling winds and congested astro pitches. And especially now, the possibility of passing on symptoms easier than it would be in warm weather. I would settle for an August restart right now if it was doable

    Totally agree. Considering cases are now at the level they were in sept/oct with another 3 weeks of lockdown to go and the vaccine rollout i reckon we will get started in April again with the same restrictions in place as previous.

    There is still 8 weeks till the season needs to restart to finish the current season in its format . No need to be doing anything just now untill we revert back Into tiers once this current lockdown has ended in 3 weeks.

    Was said that if season was to continue in April it would be finished by end June don’t see a problem with that if possible. Then your new season can start August as normal. Doubt any teams will be wanting a break this year.

    There is absolutely no reason we shouldn’t be able to start back when the juniors or East of Scotland start back assuming they do and following the same protocols as before. Once this lockdown is lifted and it’s back into tiers the picture will be much clearer. Still 9 weeks till season needs to start to complete this season so plenty time yet. Have noticed one of the Sunday leagues has changed to summer football either this year or next and looking to change the other association which is the biggest one in Scotland under their banner to that too if all goes well.
