I see that the English / UK government are putting £10000000 into the English lower league teams. All our government seems to have done is to stop fans from watching.

Back in May the UK Government fell over itself with the £16m hand out to English Rugby League.There were very real fears the sport in Northern England would be wiped out.

They are about to bail out the English National League now.

Scottish Football needs a similar rescue package and to allow socially distanced fans to return.

The UK Government needs to show some consistency.

That may or may not be true, but sport is a devolved matter and is the responsibility of the Scottish Parliament.

This is an admittedly naive notion which refers to England only where the wages at the top levels are obscene. There has been a lot of talk about “the football family” and that the top could support the lower tiers.

How about every player who earns more than 10k per week or £500k per year donates 1. of his salary into a pot which would be distributed amongst the grassroots. These players will all have come through grassroots football in some country or other and it would be a gesture of thanks.

Not holding my breath.

I agree Parplod. Whilst obscene transfer fees continue in the top league the grass root goes to rack and ruin. I cannot help think that all tax payers are being taken for mugs. We are not immune to that scenario in Scotland sadly.

So if this is devolved (and if the uk gov had actually donated money to the lower leagues)... will the Scottish gov have access to the same funding pot that the uk gov used to do something similar?

The fact that sport is a devolved area doesn.t disqualify it from receiving equivalent support from the UK Government if extra funds are allocated in England. By that argument the devolved administrations would not have received anything extra as a result of the English NHS being allocated extra funds to deal with the coronavirus epidemic. Westminster had to fund that from extra borrowing which the devolved administrations are not allowed to make so it would have been unfair if they hadn.t been allocated funds.

I don.t want to turn this into a political issue but I think it.s relevant to the thread.

My understanding is that if U.K. Gov allocate extra funding to things that are devolved such as Education.NHS, Sport, then the Scottish Government are due consequentials, c 10.of the funding that was allocated to England. So if U.K. have indeed allocated extra funding to sport in England then a per capita amount should be allocated to Scotland . If it is not and clubs go to the wall then, yes it will be WM fault.

However as I said on another thread there has to be a way to get fans into grounds whilst respecting social distancing rules.

I was at the Odeon this morning, sitting watching a movie, there had to be a two seat gap between each person. Why can’t that be allowed at football grounds?

We can mump and moan on here all day but the club chairmen need to start applying pressure on Scot Gov to see common sense here.

Take the smaller clubs for example, Stranraer, Albion Rovers, Cowdenbeath etc. Their grounds may have a capacity of maybe 5k, they get an average home crowd of a few hundred, why on gods earth can’t fans of these clubs go and watch a game?
Bigger clubs and I include the Pars could easily have a 1/3 capacity restriction, adhere to social distancing and at least we and other clubs would be getting some income.

Something needs done and quickly.

From the BBC Sport website:-

The delay in allowing fans to return to stadiums in Scotland is "political, rather than clinical", say two of the country.s top football administrators.

Scottish FA vice-president Mike Mulraney made the claim on BBC Radio Scotland - and was supported by SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster.

Mulraney said it is "fair to ask the Scottish government to reconsider" its stance on playing in empty stadiums. "I listen to the science and it does seem counter-intuitive," he said. "I think it is driven by science, but do you think that sitting one metre away from somebody eating in a restaurant has less risk than sitting two metres away from someone in a stadium with a mask on?"

Doncaster will discuss the matter with sports minister Joe Fitzpatrick on Monday and said that "it often feels football does not get a fair rub of the green. The UK government does not allow fans into Premier League or EFL grounds in the fresh air," he said. "But the Royal Albert Hall has now been allowed to admit 57. of capacity in an indoor venue. Anybody who tells me that is not a political choice, I.m sorry I don.t accept that."

Responding to the claims, national clinical director Professor Jason Leitch told BBC Scotland: "It.s absolutely not a political decision, he.s incorrect. It.s a choice made by the clinicians and then the decision makers choose. You simply cannot re-open everything."

It had been hoped fans would be allowed into stadiums in Scotland from 14 September, but that indicative date has been pushed back to 5 October at the earliest due to a rise in Covid-19 cases.

A report last year discovered that 43. of Scottish football.s income comes from gate receipts - the highest percentage of any league in Europe. And, pointing to financial support given to the National League in England and to rugby league, Doncaster was cautiously optimistic that Scottish football could also get help. "That gives me a bit of confidence," he said. "The UK government is effectively putting new money into sport in England so around 10. of that should make its way to the Scottish government. We have a meeting on Monday and are hoping very much to receive good news on financial support. Without meaningful support from government, there will be significant numbers of clubs across Scotland in real danger of being lost forever

A Scottish Government spokesperson said they "recognise this has been an enormously challenging time for football" and that they "will continue to work closely" with the football authorities.

"We are also awaiting clarity on whether there will be consequentials arising from UK Government funding," they added.

That's my understanding too. Apparently an extra £3.5 billion was added to the block grant in May for the pandemic, plus some consequentials from the UK budget. Possibly more will have to be added as UK Govt spending continues to rise in all directions.
https://www.gov.scot/news/covid-19-budget-revision/
But I don't know if anyone is seriously worrying about budgets, it's all about political will. So I agree with desperado that pressure needs to be maintained on the Scottish Govt for some practical assistance to Scottish football. Unfortunately our Premiership clubs aren't making a good job of keeping their players out of trouble or covid-free.

Wouldn.t that depend on how many season tickets have been sold and therefore how many walk up fans would be allowed to attend to generate further income ?

"You wear a mask on entering the cinema but can remove it for the duration of the film whilst you are seated."

That.s a strange one - I thought the rules were the same as places of worship ?

Scroll down to Mandatory Face Coverings.

A face covering must be worn by all people in the settings listed below, except where an exemption applies (as defined in the regulations).

any premises which open to members of the public and are used for the retail sale or hire of goods or services, such as shops, takeaway restaurants, pharmacies, estate agents, beauty parlours. This includes hospitality premises such as bars and pubs and cafes and restaurants except when an exemption applies.
aquariums, indoor zoos or visitor farms, and any other indoor tourist, heritage or cultural site
banks, building societies and credit unions
cinemas
community centres
crematoriums and funeral directors. premises
libraries and public reading rooms

There was a huge sign on the door saying "only two at any time in the toilet"......opened the door and there were 3 people in. As I stood and waited another guy went brushed past me and opened the door. I said "there's already 3 in there mate".......he said "f**k that neebur" and went in.

There are too many stupid people out there that don't care about rules no matter how simple they are.

And this is the problem. There are so many thickos who don't seem to understand these rules are there for a reason. Though not exactly unexpected given we've had Pars fans smoking in the toilets for years.

And these will be the same idiots whining when they're told they can only have 2 relatives over at Christmas due to a spread. We've seen a fairly significant increase in Fife so now isn't the time for complacency. Waiting a couple of minutes isn't going to cause anyone any pain...unless they've a very weak bladder.

I wear a mask when I am out in public however some people don't, I know some people have asthma and are excused. However my wife who suffers from asthma does and I would imagine many more are like her. I, like many others have heard about wardens in England handing out fines, yet the prime minister's father seems to be ignoring this rule. If we ever get back into our football stadiums it would have to be a rule that masks are worn from getting close to the ground, getting in, watching the game and getting out again. Many of us will have the APP on our phones that should be mandatory when going to a game, plus our temperatures should be taken on entry. With distancing in the ground I don't see any reason why we can't be allowed back in. If you can't follow the safety rules you shouldn't try to gain entry.

Questioning the ruling government & asking them to explain the logic behind their decisions, no matter what the subject is, is not making things political in my book.

Asking the Scottish government to explain the logic behind a few hundred people in a cinema not wearing masks & a few hundred people in a 10,000 capacity outdoor sporting arena is not political.

It.s the same people defending the SG every time no matter what the subject is. The answer you always get is "but what about the Tories".

Predictable & boring. If we ever get Independence who will be to blame then?

I'd suggest we could fairly easily get people in and out of EEP and keep social distance. It would need people to come in phases and take their correct seat. This is no different to what primary schools have been doing with staggered starts/finishes. If a 5 year old can manage it then so should grown adults. I suspect the difference is that most 5 year olds listen!

The other difference would be that not all stadiums have good sized openings at the side. At EEP we have that big gate at the side so could have people enter there, taking temperatures and sanitising hands as people enter. Masks on during a game unless medical reason not to?

We will blame the politicians that WE elected and WE will be able to “ unelect” those same politicians. That’s what independence is all about instead of having policies foisted upon us by plummy voiced Tories who we never voted for and who don’t care a jot about Scotland.

So do we know if the uk government provided money to the english leagues from their share of the same consequential pot used to provide Scotland its consequential money?

If it was absolutely from the same pot and from England's share then the Scottish leagues should be asking the Scottish gov. for assistance (and the Scottish gov can explain if it has been budgeted elsewhere)... If however, this was a different source of money not from England's share (or something else that the original pot was for had been funded from elsewhere) then equally, the Scottish gov. Should demand their share for scottish sport.

WTF has an accent got to do with the ability to govern?

So you.ll only respect a politician if they sound like Janey fkn Godley?

"Some days will stay a 1000 years, some pass like the flash of a spark"


So predictable with your faux sensitivity. I think you will find most Tories are plummy voiced , which usually goes with a superiority complex that looks down on working classes and “ rebellious Scots”

Ok remove the plummy voiced part from my previous statement, the Tory politicians regardless of their accent still foist policies on Scotland that most of us are against.....you don’t mind though as you prefer being British to Scottish and are quite happy for Scotlandshire to be dependent rather than independent.

This will be my last comment of this type on this particular thread as we are veering of course now.

The Vue cinema in Stirling - which presumably will apply across the UK chain, and logically to all cinemas.

There.s an interesting Q&A with Scotland.s clinical director, Professor Jason Leitch, on the issues relating to the opening-up of Scottish football at the BBC Sport website/Scottish Football.

Its strangd for sure ,Here in the States walking through the door of a restaurant/ bar you must wear a mask ,As soon as you are inside you take it off ,having it on about 30 seconds.
And over here if a buisness makes 51% earning on food then the bars are open ! And open to 75% capacity
There is no consistency .
Also there was 18000 fans at a football game

Was at the cinema last week and there were signs saying masks to be worn at all time in cinema.
Got in and everyone was removing them.
Was during the day so was really quiet so no real harm there.
Week before I went and every seat that could be sold with social distancing was. Still folk were taking masks off.
There were signs clearly stating masks must remain on.
Anyone removing a mask in the cinema is breaking the guidelines.

I did it last week cause the nearest people to me were about 20 rows away.
Week before I kept mine on.

The fact so many flouted the rules goes to show how many people don't care and unfortunately football has more than it's fair share of clowns.
The authorities are right to be more cautious about football than other things.
