  1. As much as I would like to see the building restored I doubt very much it will happen and I doubt it was 'listed'.
  2. Doesn't surprise me. For decades now this fine building has been lying derelict and the local authority should be asking themselves why didn't they liaise with the owner in trying to utilise this historic building into something useful. After the fire at the Glasgow School of Art I would have thought a wake-up call should have been taken on by local authorities by examining all historic buildings which may be at risk.
  3. Go back and read my original post. If such 'small print' exists players will have been guided by their agents who scrutinize the contract and if they sign how can the clubs cheat them? I'm not advocating this or that I'm simply postulating the existence of such a clause given the coronavirus situation.
  4. I'll say it again...yes, under normal circumstances. If such clauses exist, and remember, I would imagine that those circumstances would be unprecedented, then players would sign the contract. No one, given coronavirus, would ever anticipate these traumatic events. You are painting a picture of clubs screwing players. That is simply not the case. No one wants this situation and no doubt if this health issue continues then clubs and players would compromise but, at the end of the day you can't expect clubs to continually pay players when they can't afford to. Remember, this is not an internal issue of club vs player, but an external one beyond the control of clubs.
  5. I think you're missing the point. We are talking about CONTRACTS. I'm postulating as to the existence of clauses which may exist. Many clubs couldn't continue to pay wages if gate money stops. It's not a case of clubs 'cheating' their players. Would you be happy for the club to continue to pay a player(s) who has a 3 year contract when there is no revenue coming in. How long would clubs last?
  6. Eh? eh? It's not what I want and its not possibly applicable to St Mirren. The likelihood of 'small print' would be universally applicable throughout the football industry. There will be circumstances whereby clubs would be incapable of paying wages in circumstances where, for example, there is a social upheaval and, as I said, wars etc.
  7. Perhaps in the very small print clubs will have a get-out clause for wars etc.
  8. Well, at least it helps time-wise to get our injured players back to fitness. This is an unprecedented situation and I wonder if the players will still be paid as it could last for some considerable time.
  9. As I said in another thread... With the corona-virus encroaching upon the UK, the government is now voicing the possibility of banning public events. As we know, Italy has taken steps in cancelling sport or having them played behind closed doors. If this materialises here then I would ask the club to prepare for that scenario and make live Buddievision coverage accessible to fans and free to STHs.
  10. There is one performer on the park who deserves to get a mention and that is the referee. He never put a foot wrong 😊
  11. What medical training have the stewards been given to evaluate the difference between a genuine coronavirus cough and a simple cough of clearing throat?
