Could Coronavirus Kill Our 42 Clubs

Pretty sure.

Originally I would have thought it would be them as they might struggle with the covid stuff being part time although their players may look after themselves a bit better as have jobs as well. If its ICT, they are having a crap start, is Robertson trying to help old club out??

Who knows the Championship was the division which was given the most money by the Scottish government as they obviously have higher running costs than L1 & L2 (apart from the P/T teams) and little TV income compared to the top flight they recently got £5M from Holyrood (£500k each)  - I've read on't BBC that Covid testing for the season will cost £40k so there should be plenty left over in theory, but as I say who knows?

League leaders Hearts estimate paying close to £40,000 to have around 50 staff and players tested every week.

Cast iron case for being awarded the Championship title and promotion to the Premiership. 
How could the SPFL do anything else if the season ends tonight.

ICT allegedly

They say they want the season to continue, and reckon Maxwell picked up what Robertson had said wrong.

I you read the article below I don't think there's any doubt Robertson is arguing for the Championship to be suspended as well as Division's 1&2 it's just whether this is the clubs position too...

They've only played 10 games so, if it were to be shut down, I suspect it would be classed null and void. ATM it would be the same for the top league. Now. That would be funny. Can you imagine the Govan hordes? The air would be blue in a very different manner.

Robertson may want it, but the chairman of ICT doesn't and he's the boss.

20 year loan of £1.6m with no interest = just over £6.5k per month in payments.

That's an absolute no brainer for every club in the top flight to take up this offer. Even if it's not needed, take the loan, fire it in a high interest account for 20 years whilst you pay it off and voila....free f**kin' money!

It would only take one club to spend it trying to avoid relegation and every other club around them would follow suit.

There is absolutely no way fans would accept that life-saving money sitting in a Natwest account whilst our relegation rivals started buying players.

We could protect it by ring fencing it.

I've no idea whether or not the original idea by @djchapsticks was serious or not but at a time when the country's economy is f**ked, hundreds of thousands have been chucked on the dole with perhaps millions more joining them once furlough ends, countless charities are being closed down, people are dying in their tens of thousands and f**k knows how many young people's careers and aspirations have been wiped out, for us to even think about abusing a scheme designed to bail clubs out who would otherwise go to the wall would be unforgiveable.

I'm here all week with a full bladder for anyone with a plate of chips needing pissed over. :D

Where do I find high interest account?

That's what was going through my head, when I read djchopsticks post.  Has he let on yet.   Lucky if  I'm getting a fraction of 1%  with my bank.

Should the balance exceed £1,000, then the interest rate on any portion above this threshold will be paid at 0.01 percent gross per annum (variable).

On its website, the bank states: "You'll get our highest interest rate when you save between £1 - £50 by standing order each month, on balances up to £1,000."

No minimum deposit is required to open the account, but customers will need to set up a standing order from their Royal Bank of Scotland current account.

The amount needs to be between £1 and £50 each calendar month into the account.

 

3%  for  Current Account  Holders only.
