I don’t know the answer to this but would be interested if anyone did. What happens when it’s betfred , LC, Scot cup matches against lower league teams ? 
is testing put in place for these part time players or do teams rely on players fessing up if they have a cough and can’t smell farts in the dressing room  ? 
 

Thats actually a fair point seeing as we have played two lower league teams in the past fortnight and the incubation period has been recorded as being up to 11/12 days.

Because during the virus we signed a bare minimum squad. We loaned players out when we should have kept squad together and had as big a squad as possible to cover games. Goodwin did opposite so IMO club should be made to play games even with youth players or lose points. Total incompetence on Goodwins part IMO.

Wow what a load of sheeeat

It never ceases to amaze me that people like you exist

Given that players seem incapable of getting through 2 minutes of football without gobbing or blowing their noses onto the pitch, it really shouldn't come as a surprise that this sort of thing happens.

The really stupid thing is allowing Premiership teams to play lower league teams who are not testing in the same way as we are. I actually didn't realise that was the case.

If Hertz are top of the championship then they will want back up , they couldn’t get fecked again , could they?🤔

That's why I think there will be league reconstruction to three leagues of 14 with no relegation this season. Loan Rules will also be changed to enable teams to fulfill fixtures.

I fully agree with your second sentence.

eta, sorry if this has been asked and answered previously 

Lower league teams need to be tested prior to any match against a top flight side, but there's no testing in the league for them.

This is the ludicrous part of this, there is now a two tier system (and we know how much the government like their tiers) with expectations on top flight clubs much greater than the rest. I can understand that testing costs are prohibitive for lower league teams, but they are for most SPL teams too.

The gestation time for the effects of disease is also probably longer than the elapsed time between test and match, also.
 

This is, of course, total unfounded assumption and guesswork.

I think lower league players out of a regular testing regime need to be tested before playing a top division team in a testing regime.

afraid I have become totally fed up  with the whole thing. I am writing off this whole season. Will show interest again,maybe, next season if we are allowed back to games. Until then I do not care anymore.

You care enough to come on to a St. Mirren forum to tell everyone how much you don’t care 😉

Presumably you won’t be posting on here again then. Maybe see you next season. Enjoy your break.

Much as I'd rather be able to go to the match with the ability to watch ppv I'm able to see Saints more often than I usually would so for me it has been a bit of an unexpected benefit, but I really would love to be back in the ground.

I wonder what throwing the book looks like.... is it playing a player who should be self isolating but lied and put 22 players at risk or players going to a pub... Tic and Dons got a fine... so as it St Mirren we will no doubt get a 12 point penalty and a bigger fine.... however if we have broken rules then some people at the club can get their jotters
