14 September Indicative Return

It has to be a meaningful number.

4 stands at 250 per stand for a total of 1000 seems reasonable.

At that point, you are looking at League 1 and 2 clubs being able to almost return to normal.

League 1 & 2 clubs won't have the same capacity, or stands in many cases, as us, so unlikely to be that number.

Speculation on Radio Scotland at the weekend that the club would have some form of online nominations from the fans to ascertain those able to attend.

Absolutely not, no one is more or less worthy to be chosen to attend and, as we saw with the Love St housing development street naming polls, this type of nominative process is far too easily rigged.

I believe buds that have had first hand experience in risk assessments and the implementation of safe systems of work for Covid19 should be the first ones to get picked.

Celtic turned down for 1st football test event this weekend. Not surprised after the Bolingoli incident but I don't see too many other clubs publicly pushing to hold a test event. 14/9 looking like the date of the first test event at this rate so could well be October at the earliest before we see a max socially distanced capacity at this rate.

According to some (most) ST holders on here, they bought the ST to help support the club financially. The club already have that money and it will cost the club if only ST holders are allowed in as there will be no extra income, only outlay. So, if ST holders really want to support the club financially, they should give up their attendance and allow only "pay at the gate" customers in, therefore maximising the clubs income per home game.

Or maybe they don't want the club to maximise its income and would, in this case, be selfish and demand their own attendance first, therefore costing the club money.

Just a thought. :whistle

How many St. Mirren supporting non season ticket holders attended our home games?

Would that number fill the seats that would be made available?

As a season ticket holder can I “pay at the gate“?

Should season ticket holders be the first to be given the option of buying tickets for the stadium?

As they have publicly criticized and banned a large number of their own supporters regarding behaviour and hygiene, it's no surprise they were turned down.

Somewhat academic. If the proportion of seats available is the same as proposed for Murrayfield this weekend there will only be just over 100 fans in the ground.

At 100 seats I would sell/give to our flag waving drum guys. 

As long as they promise social distancing +.

I have just seen the first draft guidance for fans returning to stadiums.

All fans will be sprayed with a disinfectant before they enter the stadium (this measure will continue to be in place at Cappielow forever).

Only every third row will be occupied.

Everyone will need to stand with their arms at full stretch. This is to ensure social distancing.

However, no touching hands.

No food will be sold.

No oldies.

If we win, no gathering at the side of the pitch to hail the team like a bunch of girls at a Take That concert circa 1990's.

Masks must be worn at all times to discourage singing, shouting or talking.

Anyone who coughs will be shot by stewards.

These measures are intended to keep everyone safe and are following the very best scientific advice.

I see Ross County and Rangers have been approved for their respective home games on 12/09 to be test events with a third tbc.

Why not test all 6 fixtures that weekend - to collect more feedback/data to analyse?

Without looking, I just know County are at home to Celtic. The league's all about the OF, we're here to make up the numbers.

If they intend to have the same sort of percentages as the rugby it won't prove anything. Having so few people will be like walking down the street. We really need to half fill a stadium to gauge the effect of crowds in the open air. I was with the governments but, with the numbers being affected and the ratio between that and deaths due to Covid, I am now leaning toward getting back to normal.

So test games go ahead on 12/9 and then all games are open to reduced crowds on 14/9.

So what the f**k is the point of the test games then?

Someone explain the science behind that to me because when you add in the scarves/masks nonsense it looks like none of those in charge have the faintest idea of what they are doing.

It does seem pointless as they say the virus can take up to two weeks to develop symptoms. Even testing everyone the next day wouldn't prove anything. It looks like it's a case of them trying to make it look like they're doing something.

They've been doing that since the masks in shops thing.

It's no longer about the science. It's about the politics of getting back to normal They are hiding behind scientists who are too naive and wrapped up in all the attention to realise they are being used to protect those making these decisions. It's this total abuse of "science" which I've been banging the drum on for weeks now. It's painful to see the destruction of the reputation of a discipline I love and which has done so much largely unrecognised good for civilisation.

There is no credible science behind the masks decision and there is absolutely no credibility in these stadia "tests".
